I'd suggest choosing one set of search providers and deleting the other; whichever works best for you.

I had commented this line out (with a ; ). My three home pages were not there and there were many other problems in IE8 and my system. The .reg I started with had worked fine before. One really strange thing I noticed when I added this .ini to nLite is the size shown was something like 52 MB. The .ini file is a little over 1 MB and the 52 MB looks like the size of the whole folder containing the .ini, your original .ini, your IE8 AddOn and several other AddOns. If you have any ideas what happened, please let me know. Thanks, John.

I don't know what could have caused that, but I'm willing to investigate if you'll send me your INI and the 5erIE8.in_ file after integration.
I'm aware that nLite will put the first line in the [TweakEntries] section last in the INF file; it has done this to me as well. But it hasn't caused me any problems. I do not know why it happens.
EDIT: Try compressing entries_IE8Tweaks.ini before integration. nLite seems to have problems with the uncompressed file in certain situations. A note has now been added in the addon release post regarding this. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Unfortunately for some unknown reason they are not cumulative. The 2005 sp1 version is listed (as optional) as I have run across something that requires it (K-Lite x64), if and when I encounter something that requires the 2008 runtimes I'll add it. In fact if they didn't have the same filename (shame on you Microsoft) I would already have added it.
Kurt_Aust, I noticed that MS has released a Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable. Should we be using this rather 2005? Enjoy, John.

@ . . . NDP35SP1-KB963707-x64.exe [759,144] Only this change applies to users of 5eraph's packs
Moved ..\WinUp.lnk to ..\RunOnce\WinUp.lnk
Other changes of note:
1. Found a bug in the IE8 installer which also shows up in 5eraph's AddOn:
If Internet Explorer 8 is installed on Windows XP Professional x64 edition then the Quick Launch toolbar is broken for any user accounts created (logged into for the first time) thereafter.
Normally when one activates the Quick Launch toolbar on a new account, icons for "Internet Explorer", "Windows Media Player" and "Show Desktop" are available.
However once Internet Explorer 8 is installed, when one activates the Quick Launch toolbar on a newly created account only the icon for "Internet Explorer" is available.
Losing the "Windows Media Player" icon is no big deal, simply enough to drag and drop a replacement, but the loss of the "Show Desktop" icon is far more significant.
I have found that issuing the following command fixes the problem:
rem fix Quick Launch toolbar for IE8
MkDir "%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\Default User\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch"
Which would seem to indicate that there is some sort of regression bug in the Internet Explorer 8 installer that results in it failing to create the directory "%UserProfile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch" upon account initialisation.
If the directory is there (which the above command creates) then it is correctly populated with the expected icons.
2. Since I was mucking about with the Quick Launch toolbar anyway I've added Windows Explorer to it.
3. Split the awkward command used at the end of Run1 off into another batch file named AccountInit.bat.
4. Added an "Access Revoke" shortcut to the "Grant Access" folder.
5. The latest version of Sun VirtualBox (3.0.2) appears to be a major improvement for the purposes of testing XP x64, it is now almost as good as VMware Server 1.0.9.
However there is one important limitation, that being do NOT attempt to use more than one virtual processor or the VM will hang / BSOD.
6. Changed the name of the base directory from WinXP-64_sp2+ to WinXP-64_sp2a as some commands regard + as a special character.

Is this method in any way preferred over simply using booogy's slipstreamer after having nlited a source image, and if so why? (I ask this because the added hotfixes belonging to WMP in booogy's tool are confusing me when I do it in the middle of having nlite busy with an image already.)Yes, and that is what happens when you place WMP11 installer into the nLite Hot Fix section. It is detected and nLite calls booogy's slipper.
Isn't the point of using the WMP11 Slipstreamer so that it slipstreams it into the source to begin with?

On a different subject: I tried setting the System Restore disk size (MaximumDataStorePercentOfDisk = 10) to 10% and after the install it is 12% (the default). Have you every tried this and got it to work? Thanks, John.
Posted 03 August 2009 - 02:55 AM
The method used by the guide of running the WMP11 slipstreamer separately before the main nLite pass comes from the results of initial testing.
When this guide was first created, while you could let nLite call the WMP11 slipper, any WMP11 hotfixes weren't truly slipstreamed, rather they were executed silently from svcpack at T-13 (not sure if this is still the case). Also you could not run the WMP11 slipper after nLite had finished its processing, for then it would break svcpack, any hotfixes nLite had set for silent install at T-13 failed to execute.
Finally there is the fact that if you run the WMP11 slipper separately you have more options available.
With the mysterious absence of 5eraph and hence lack of updates to his pack I've done the odd test, this selection of updates results in nothing (except MSRT) showing as a high priority update:
[Hotfixes] D:\Operating_Systems\nLite\WinXP-64_sp2a\5eraph\5er_UpdatePack_XPx64SP2_2009-06_2.7z D:\Operating_Systems\nLite\WinXP-64_sp2a\5eraph\860-WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB971633-x64-ENU.exe D:\Operating_Systems\nLite\WinXP-64_sp2a\5eraph\870-WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB961371-x64-ENU.exe D:\Operating_Systems\nLite\WinXP-64_sp2a\5eraph\880-WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB973346-x64-ENU.exe D:\Operating_Systems\nLite\WinXP-64_sp2a\5eraph\5er_IE8_Addon_2009-03_1_x64.7z D:\Operating_Systems\nLite\WinXP-64_sp2a\5eraph\IE8-WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB972260-x64-ENU.exe D:\Operating_Systems\nLite\WinXP-64_sp2a\5eraph\IE8-WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB972636-x64-ENU.exe D:\Operating_Systems\nLite\WinXP-64_sp2a\5eraph\IE8Tweaks.7zNote that I used the vanilla IE8 AddOn, the one with no updates of any kind.
However if you are using the batch files to install IE8, then naturally nLite can't integrate KB972260 as IE8 has not yet been installed (you need to use Run2).
Sorry, but I have not mucked around with the System Restore settings.

Concerning 5eraph, I did PM him as I said a few posts ago, and got no response. This is one reason I stay away from AddOns and Update Packs. You never know when the owner will disappear. With your method and your explanation of how you do it, if you are absent when I need changes, I can do it myself. Thanks for all your efforts in this. Enjoy, John.

* KB969897 was replaced by KB972260 in an out of cycle update.
* Similarly KB971930 has been replaced by KB972636.
Either place IE8 and its updates at RunOnce for batch file installation OR integrate 5eraph's AddOn and the hotfixes, best not to mix the 2.
