  1. WUD 2.21 Beta

    jcarle, Works very well on XP-SP2. I am using it now as I type. Also how will we get a new update file for the latest downloads when they come out? Cheers, dare2001
  2. Your right about the slipstreaming problem, WU doesn't like them slipstreamed. This is how your batch file should look ECHO.

  3. XPlode 4.3.50711.1385

    Well guys I just purchased a unrestricted license and it didn't hurt one little bit, $10.00US is pretty cheap for a program that we know works and performs well. Keep up the great work Wraith you've got my support. dare2001

  7. Hello

    I have been a member since 18-August 03 and today I realised I forgot to say hello to all the fantastic people at MSFN when I joined. So you could call this a belated hello
  8. Installing Apps with XPLODE

    Hi Wraith, Thanks for the reply. I'll run it with logging active so that I can see what is happening with the install. Other than this hiccup Xplode works fine as I have been using it since you posted the first version here. Regards, dare2001

  10. SP2 Slowing things up :(

    I have gone back to SP1a I installed SP2 via WU and everything seemed the same. Then I decided to do a clean install the other day using RTM 2180 network version slipstreamed with SP1a and then programs like PowerDVD were very slow or hung on running, Photoshop kept on freezing, IE was very slow. So last night I did a format and completely reinstalled SP1a installed all my programs and no problems. Everything is running smooth again. I am sticking with SP1a till this slow down problem is fixed.
  11. I just slipstreamed XP (Original Build) with SP2 using /s without any problems.
  12. Final day for SP2 release...

    I just jumped in my time machine and went forward 1 day and Service Pack 2 RC2 is out!
