Se7en_UA - working with Win 8.1

902 posts in this topic

I was trying to read something too early.

Uninstall 6.2.5 first and make sure a folder does not exist Appswitch.dat. delete if it does

'Se7en_UA.exe 6.2.6: May 14, 2010, 6:49:33 PM
' Fix runtime error 5 caused by language addition.

@darklunar I don't think this will fix your error. Use right click Unmount with No save then use both the right click zMountdir and reg. delete zMountdir

Delete Se7en_UA.ini and restart it creates a new one for troubleshooting. Attach here

Whats the answer?

Unless you are burning dual layer then this most likely won't fit on dvd. 4453 and it add's 80 mb or so when it writes so you exceed the 4.5 limit.

I get around this since APPS folder can be on any drive including usb this way

Right before you Burn just Delete the Se7enUA\uaDVD\APPS folder

EDIT: Actually you can move that folder to another drive instead of delete. I have to do that everytime I go for full install since I don't have dual layer

EDIT 2:1 more thing. Your original APPS folder is your complete backup to all your applications. It copies there as well as the uaDVD\APPS folder so on setup if it can see either it will give you choice of which to use.

does that make sense?

Yes it does. I got the message after adding a few more apps, but

I was just testing it in vmware with an iso.

I have an 8GB usb stick that I can use.

Jbm, Se7en_UA was build to minimize size of ur windows image, but u can edit it manually by moving ur apps folder for temporary, after u finished with all those needed step, move it again to ur Se7en_UA folder (eg ur windows DVD), the most important appswitch.dat have ur apps listed otherwise it will failed after first logon cmd or audit user cmd depends on what u prefered for apps installer. Hope it help!

Just to be sure I understand.

Before I create the ISO I can delete or move the APPS folder to a different drive.

Then create the ISO. When I install windows and the apps installer starts I can choose the apps folder.

I noticed during an install when the Apps installed starts it gives a choice for D:\APPS or H:\APPS

D: is my HD and H: is the DVD. If I had deleted the on dvd I'd just have the one on D:

and my apps would be installed from that location.

But this is kind of mute now. I just did an install from a USB memery stick and don't

think I'll be going back to using a DVD.

U dont need to installed from DVD, what I mean windows DVD is ur windows installation source. Yes, the option to choose ur apps drive is made to be more flexible, the most important is appswitch.dat (u can edit it with ur own apps, then in first logon or audit cmd Se7en_UA will installed for u), by the way, u can test ur apps before u made ur final windows setup, so if anything goes wrong, u'll know it, right? What I know if our *.wim is larger then 4,5 GB, Se7en_UA will automatically ask to move ur apps into usb stick, check ur appswitch.dat. For more details we can wait max or urie to explain.

@MaxXPsoft

would it be usefull to beable to install reg files from different points in setup?

Or is it already possiible? I've been reading the forum and the help files

but couldn't see anything.

I use the following reg file to setup auto logon

Autologon.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"AutoAdminLogon"="1"
"DefaultUserName"="anAdministrator"
"DefaultPassword"="password"

I have it in my REGadd folder and it gets placed in cleadup.cmd.

But it only works if its run from setupcomplete.cmd.

Is there a way to make Se7en_UA put it there?

Or If you have other ideas?

I know one idea is for me to improve my memory so I don't forget to edit the cmd files!

Thanks

Why r u using reg files when u can automate it via autounattend.xml in setting pass = oobesystem, like this

<settings pass="oobeSystem">

<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral"versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

</component>

<AutoLogon>

<Enabled>true</Enabled>

<LogonCount>1</LogonCount>

<Username>Administrator</Username>

</AutoLogon>

The reg file makes it permanent.

The xml can be changed from 1 login count to 999. (Don't know if it could go higher or not.

But thats still not permanent.

I'm working on an install of Powerdvd 9.

The main program and two updatres were extracted with uniextract

and I placed the folders in my APPS folder in powerdvd9 folder.

Here's what I have so in my Appswitch.dat

Without the FLAGs I can't install the updates until I start powerdvd

and enter the serial number.


[powerdvd9]
REM http://www.gocyberlink.com/english/index.jsp

REG ADD %KEY%\iAdd /V Inum /D "CMD /C Start /Wait %SystemDrive%\APPS\powerdvd9\activatepowerdvd.exe" /f

Everything gets installed unattended and I'm not prompted to register.

The problem is I still have to enter the serial number and activate when I first start powerdvd.

I think the problem is with the FLAG3 entry I'm using, it's only possible to have one right?

During runonceextester it says it can't process the FLAG4 entery because FLAG4nr1.txt is missing

what is FLAG4nr1.txt and where does it go?

I got it to work by using this autoit script.

It has to be edited with your serial number.

Also I'm running on Win7 ultimate X64

activatepowerdvd.au3


Opt("WinWaitDelay",100)
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",4)
Opt("WinDetectHiddenText",1)
Opt("MouseCoordMode",0)
ClipPut("KEY goes here with no dashes")
Sleep(1000)
Run('C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\PowerDVD9\Activate.exe')
WinWait("Activation","Your trial version e")
If Not WinActive("Activation","Your trial version e") Then WinActivate("Activation","Your trial version e")
WinWaitActive("Activation","Your trial version e")
Sleep(1000)
Send("{CTRLDOWN}v{CTRLUP}")
Sleep(1000)
MouseMove(613,471)

WinWaitActive("Activation","Activating now")
Sleep(1000)
MouseMove(143,149)
MouseDown("left")
MouseUp("left")
Sleep(1000)
WinKill("Activation")
Exit

Hello

You can find some help here with Autounattend.xml:

That makes it so my password doesn't expire.

It doesn't make it so I don't have to enter it when I logon

to my computer.

Maybe there is an other possibility?
