1) Folder location is where your CD Windows XP is copied (Example: C:\Win_XP) - All files -

2) Create a folder C:\SP3 and copy inside the SP3 file

3) Launch nLite to do the integration process

I tried to integrade it in the XP' source location but it says, like it said before a couple of times:-

"....The specified executable is not a valid Win32 application...."

Try to right-click on the SP3 file to unlock and rename as SP3.exe!

Launch nLite and try again!

You use the original CD or a copy of the folder I386?

I renamed to XP3.exe but still is not valid 32bit.

Do you mean I burn the directory I386 in a CD?

You don't answer my question: Have you the ORIGINAL Windows XP CD?

Have you downloaded the correct SP3 version: x86?

Your computer is 32-bit?

FAQ:

http://www.nliteos.com/faq.html

You need to make a new fresh CD copy to use again nLite!

If nlite does not suit you, you can try HFSLIP.

The big different is that you do not need to keep restarting a fresh source everytime you re-do the slipstreaming process. (Nodoby will stop at 1st time only. I'm sure you will come back again to re-slip by adding/modifying/improving the slipstream process mainly for tweaking, adding programs or mistake made etc into the OS once you get the hang of it).

nlite modify your source. HFSLIP don't. HFSLIP create a copy of it and modify from there, i.e. thru the SOURCESS folder. So your source do not need to replace everytime your re-do the whole process.

Having said that, HFSLIP is generally not for components removal. But you can get a decent updated iso (XP with SP3, WPM11, IE8, dotnet framework, your registry tweak, programs addon, etc). Isn't that what majority of us is trying to accomplish? HFSLIP, being cmd-type script, it does not need .Net 2 framework to run.

HFSLIP is no longer supported by its developers (same as nlite), currently the active tread within HFSLIP forum is usually The File-Checker (HFSLIPFC) for HFSLIP

To get started, go to Windows XP SP3 Update-List, maintanined by forum member Mimo. On the left page, click on the link "Windows XP" .

Text search within the page for 'Table 6: Files used by HFSLIP'.

On the first table, download "HFSLIP 1.7.10 beta J v4 " or 'HFSLIP 1.7.10 beta J v5' for the batch script to get started.

I suggested run hfslip to a data drive, not system drive, so that you can retain the existing build and improve on it over time.

To learn more of how to use hfslip, On 'Mimo's HFSLIP Information Site', click on left frame "HFSLIP' and several basic topic to get started (Introduction, Basic-How-To, Advanced Features, Extras, XP SP3, Hotfox lists, Downloads, Changelog)

Hope that helps
