Integrating Start-up monitor as a driver? I am trying to integrate mike lin's start up monitor into the control panel by installing it as a driver but nlite doesn't seem to like it, any idea on how I could do this?

I would also like to have it install the resident monitor as well but one thing at a time.

You cant do it that way.

Use the $OEM$ folders. Place Startup.cpl in $OEM$\$$\System32

my installation is having problems at the moment and doesn't seem to be doing what it should be as referenced in http://www.msfn.org/...tting-settings/ and it is not installing the mlin start up monitor into the control panel. do I need a run once for this? do I need to include the inf I posted earlier as well as the cpl? (tried both neither seems to work)

After reading up on the $OEM$ folders maybe this will solve my problem with my batch file not being able to find the folders it needs during installation as referenced by this post http://www.msfn.org/...ng-a-batchfile/

or eliminate the need the batch-file entirely. the purpose of the batch-file was to copy things such as the windows folder, documents and settings containing desktop.ini files and set the read only bit on the folders by copying a folder that has been set up over top of the existing one. while this works perfectly post install I haven't been able to get it to work during the installation. would simply putting the folders needed into $OEM$\$1 solve this problem? will files placed in that folder overwrite ones that are already on the disk?

or do I need to set up a run once to do this?
