Strange behaviour setup multiple languages

20 posts in this topic

It seems that the process are not the same with Autounattend.xml and without using the xml file!

In fact I have the same trouble like you!

I've found an workaround and I've modded the source 516 with your image. I've spend time but I think now it's OK.

If you want try the spwizimg.dll I've made you can download here, I've tested with Autounattend.xml and without!:

spwizimg.zip

No there is not spwizimg.dll inside boot.wim 1!

I hope that can help you! :rolleyes:

Many thanks Glimmerman! ;)

If you want customize the source 516 you can use GIMP.

More help:

Installers for GIMP for Windows

Gimp on Wikipedia

1) At first open spwizimg.dll with Restorator 2007 and save the source 516.

2) Lauch GIMP and open the source 516 saved.

3) Drag and drop an image you want add inside the source 516 and customize this one like you want (colors, size,..).

4) Save this new customized source 516 inside an other folder with the same name, color 32-bits and channel A8 R8 G8 B8 (use Advanced options), .bmp format.

Now you can add this new source 516 inside your customized spwizimg.dll with Restorator 2007.

You can also add a Manifest (XML file) with Restorator inside spwizimg.dll to improve the installation (you can see that inside the spwizimg.dll I've given you)!

Cheers

I've downloaded GIMP.

What a difference compared with photoshop ;P

What does the channel thing do?

My last question what does a manifest do?

I see that in my dll there is 'processorArchitecture="X86"'

should i change this in amd64?

I use GIMP 2.6 because it' is a freeware and works fine! I don't have Photoshop.

The channel is important because if you save the image 32-bits with channel X8 R8 G8 B8 the image will not be displayed!!!

About the Manifest:

You can read the description when you want add the Manifest file:

Create an XP Manifest with Restorator 2007

About XP Manifest:

Windows XP introduced the concept of "themes". It allows the user to customize the look of Windows.

Since this may be incompatible with programs that exept the "classic" Window look, a program must

provide a Manifest in the resources in order to use the theme.

Comparison:

The picture at the left shows a program runing on Windows XP.

At the right you see the same program after adding the Manifest: the theme is applied.

What is the Manifest:

The Manifest is a small XML file embedded as resource of type "Manifest". It instructs Windows to use

specific versions of its internal components.

Edit the Manifest information:

The format must be of the form 1.2.3.4

Example for Windows 7:

Keep only: Version: 6.1.7600.16385

Yes, I think you can change the: processorArchitecture="amd64" inside the Manifest. The file with processorArchitecture="x86" works also on a 64-bits computer and I've tried!

You can download the tutorial for Restorator 2007:

Manual

Cheers

*Edit: for the XP Manifest you can use an asterisk (star= *) processorArchitecture="*"
