There is a problem with this Windows Installer Package during Unattend

2 posts in this topic

I am attempting an unattended XP install using Yumeyao's latest DotNetFXAIO_40F_20111019_Addon_ENU.cab using HFSLIP putting the extracted dotnetfx.exe in the HFSVCPACK folder.

When running XP SP3 setup I receive the following error when processing .Net 2.0SP2 portion:

"There is a problem with this Windows Installer Package. Please refer to the setup log for more information."

From then on all subsquent "installs" are broken, including Net 4.

After running a few tests I've found the problem. When I include the line "FileSystem=convertNTFS" in the [unattended] section then the error occurs but if I remove that line then no error.

I have no idea why this happens and if someone could enlighten me it would be much appreciated.

I have nearly the same problem in my latest una xp installation.

I dont know what hotfix using hfslip has broken msiserver (windows installer) but after 1st logon i've fix it using this:

1. Reinstalling Windows installer 4.5 from here (in XP normal boot mode without using F8): http://www.microsoft...ls.aspx?id=8483

switch used: WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe /overwriteoem

2. Restarting XP in Safe Mode

3. In Safe mode, Start menu > Run > this command: msiexec /regserver

then reboot in normal mode (without using F8)

then Windows installer was working fine as usual ;)

Another bug i had, "my documents" was popping up each time after user logon, i've fix this with modifying a reg key:

IN: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon>Userinit

Replace your actual value with this: C:/windows/system32/userinit.exe

(note: without comma at the end! And dont forget to change drive letter if using other than C drive...)

Rebooted & My doc didnt poppedt again.

Hope this help !

PS: for the 1st time i've used HfSlip from W7-86 >> maybe there's a problem using hfslip under W7 ?
