Microsoft Security Essentials

11 posts in this topic

I have slipstreamed using nLite everything I intended to with one exception: Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE). I've added SP3, High priority fixes, IE8, Malicious tool, WMP11 but integrating MSE eludes me. Using an Add-on maker I've created a cab file and inserted it into the setup disk using nLite.

After the installation process completes and Windows XP is rebooting a message pops up as follows: "Windows did not pass genuine validation security essentials will become disabled".

When installing MSE the traditional way through Microsoft Update website, MSE installs without any problem and no validity issues.

I searched high and low but found no solution. Any ideas?? I would like to continue to use nLite, If nothing works out I'll just resign myself to install it wihout slipstreaming. Thanks, Gideon.

You need to activate your Windows XP during the silent installation to install fine MSE!

MSE checks if your Windows copy is genuine !

Thanks for the quick reply, myselfidem. Now how do I go about doing that? Your suggestion makes sense except that I don't know how to activate during silent installation.

Can you take me through the steps? Thanks, G.

Went to http://www.msfn.org/...vation-utility/, tried using OEMScan and I can't grasp anything there, so it's not a solution for me.

Kelsenellenelvian, thanks for your help. I did use these 3 switches and it works OK from the command line but not when I create a cab file with those switches. I still get that error message after a reboot.

See attachment of the values I'm using to create the Addon.

I know what the issue is.

When MSE first came out it was figured out that it doesn't properly register when installed at t-13.

You have to install it at runonce or later.

Solved!. You are right Kelsenellenelvian, RunOnce is the way to go, Not creating a cab file. Here is what I did:

1. Create a cmd file and call it whatever you want, such as MSE.cmd. If you use Notepad than change the Save as Type value from 'txt' to 'all files' .

edit the MSE.cmd file to put the following 2 lines in that file:

start /wait %Source%$OEM$\mseinstall.exe /s /runwgacheck /o

start /wait %Source%$OEM$\mpam-fe.exe /s

2. Download the following 2 files from Microsoft: mseinstall.exe and mpam-fe.exe

http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=87342

3. Put the MSE.cmd file at root of the Windows XP folder.

put the mseinstall.exe and mpam-fe.exe files in the $OEM$ folder which is located in the root of the Windows XP folder

4.When you execute nLite, at the RunOnce tab add the following command: cmd /R %source%mse.cmd

5. That's it. It works. btw, the mpam-fe file is the latest MSE update file.
