I modified the error messages you pointed to finish with a dot character for your _SNMsynth.cmd color patch can be applied directly.

Can you please modify post #706 to reflect this change is not needed anymore and to add a working link for the ANSI... files like this one, so I can add a link to that post in the guide?

Post modified, direct link to ANSICON added.

New version released.

It solves a couple of minor bugs causing file not found errors, as described by Raoul90. Those errors only appeared in some cases if you used restricted hotfixes for 2.0 SP2 or if you used them only on some of the frameworks being processed. Those errors didn't harmed at all as the script was trying to execute files not present because of the bugs mentioned.

hi strel! just a few quick inquiries ... would this XPSEP XP and Server 2003 32 bit.exe have newer file than DNF30XPS? (there's 1 too for 64 bit.) so if i have this update in my UA, would it be better instead to leave this as DNF30XPS= in _SNMsynth.ini? would it be possible to have XPSEP XP and Server 2003 32 bit.exe processed in SNMSynth? thank you!
After some research, that packet installs WIC and MSXML6 in addition to XPS, and you cannot decide to avoid any of them. But though the packet is newer the files contained (or downloaded during install for the case of MSXML) doesn't. You can have more recent files from links in the guide, or from packets like YumeYao's WIC or so.

Pasha_ZZZ, I included a link to your patch.

Very interesting thread folks...

I have one issue that is annoying me, and hope that you have a solution. Is there a way to get the standard installation to do a passive install (with progress bar) but WITHOUT the dreaded cancel button? Our users just love playing with the cancel button if the installation takes too much time... any ideas/suggestions?

Thanks!

In the script file (_SNMsynth.cmd) replace all /qb with /qb! Edited by Pasha_ZZZ

SNMs 20100118,

** Processing .NET 3.5 SP1 portion...
NDP35SP1-KB957661-x86.exe process delayed.
Processing NDP35SP1-KB958484-x86.exe...

& I see message box with error "Unable to open installer package......."

20100117 works w/o errors.

P.S.: All 3.5 sp1 updates give this error too. I think MSIEXEC cannot find MSI package (invalid extraction path?)...

Your custom installers will remove the cancel button for passive install. You don't need to change anything as Pasha_ZZZ proposes, unless what you want to remove is the cancel button during the building process.

I could not recreate your errors, it's working fine for me. I'd need more data.

This is MSIEXEC commandline:

MSIEXEC  /p "C:\.NET\TMP\TMP1\HFX\NDP35SP1-KB958484.msp" /a "C:\.NET\TMP\TMP1\ADMIN35\vs_setup.msi" /qb

but there are no ADMIN35 folder!

But it's working fine for me, and unless you give me enough data to recreate your error, what you can do by simply attaching your PROCESSDATA.TXT file, I tend to think that something is wrong with the steps you're following... maybe something is wrong with your color patch... do some checkings.

I still cannot recreate your errors, and my ADMIN35 folder is being created as usual. May you have a problem with installer service, try restarting it; or may you have some issue with installed .NET frameworks in bad state, I'd try reinstalling them if the error persists, maybe using .NET framework cleanup tool.

Hello,

I would first like to thank the developers of this great tool. I've used SNM in the past, and I'm just coming back to it to build a new XP install disk.

My trouble is that after install Microsoft Update wants to install KB974417. I'm creating the disk using the latest HFSLIP (1.7.10 beta D), and I'm using SNMsynth 20100118 to build an all-in-one passive installer that gets put in the GUIRUNONCE folder in HFSLIP. SNMsynth builds without errors, and the installer works without any errors that I can see.

I've checked the files 974417 updates: mscordacwks.dll, mscorlib.dll and mscorwks.dll: they are supposed to be version 2.0.50727.3603 and the installed system has this version.

Where should I look to find the cause of this?

By the way, I made a couple of small changes to _SNMsynth.cmd. It would not list the work or tmp directories in PROCESSDATA.TXT because I use the '-' as a date separator instead of '/'. For example:

ECHO>PROCESSDATA.TXT --- WORK FOLDER CONTENT:
REM fix by Clark
REM DIR /-C/ON|FINDSTR /R "../.*">>PROCESSDATA.TXT
DIR /-C/ON|FINDSTR /R /C:"^[^ ]">>PROCESSDATA.TXT

Thanks in advance,

Clark

I am still having a problem using Silent .NET Maker synthesized with my XP HFSLIPcd.

When I put XPDNF11SP120SP230SP235SP1.exe in SVCPACK folder, only Net 1.1 SP1 is installed. Upon further review actually Net 2.0 SP2 fails and that causes 3.0 SP2 along with 3.5 SP1 to fail. Why does 2.0SP2 fail?

When I put XPDNF11SP120SP230SP235SP1.exe in HFGUIRUNONCE folder, all NET frameworks are installed completely with no problems.

My question is what is happening in HFGUIRUNONCE that is not happening in SVCPACK? What is the difference?

Anybody have any ideas on this.

Just wondering.

M2GD

P.S.: My 2k HFSLIPcd works great when using SVCPACK folder.

My question is what is happening in HFGUIRUNONCE that is not happening in SVCPACK? What is the difference?

P.S.: My 2k HFSLIPcd works great when using SVCPACK folder.

Items in SVCPACK are installed at T-13 (before the 2'nd reboot), while items in HFGUIRUNONCE are installed on the first GUI login after the 2'nd reboot. So, SVCPACK installs are done before HFGUIRUNONCE. There is less Windows 'infrastructure' available at T-13, so some things won't install then.

When I used SNM before the all-in-one installer feature was added, I would put the 2.0 installer in SVCPACK, and the 3.0 and 1.1 installers in HFGUIRUNONCE. Now, I'm just putting the all-in-one installer in HFGUIRUNONCE.

I might try putting in SVCPACK and test (after I've got the other issue I posted about resolved).

Clark.

Thanks for the reply clarkg888.

My confusion is because I had been putting it in SVCPACK with no problems but now it will not work there.

I just don't understand why and the fact that win2k works adds to that confusion.

You should have this value in the registry:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Products\DC3BF90CC0D3D2F398A9A6D1762F70F3\Patches\9E0DE89293FE9BB33898F24ED18CCF08\State 1 DWORD

My2GirlsDad

Don't know why this is happening to you but 2.0 should install properly at T-13.

I'll make tests tomorrow.
