How to install LIPSetup.msi file from cmdlines.txt?

43 posts in this topic

I have already look files inside LIPSetup.msi and there is no files to explain silent installation !

I look inside various LIPSetup.msi language files and there is no explainations.

I know you want absolutely install LIPSetup.msi at T-12, but I think you must use first sysprep on your computer with the commands given previously!

HTH

I've never worked with Sysperep, to be honest :)

Can you catch what are files with extension .mui from: \\SourceDir\Windows\mui\Fallback\0c1a ? I've checked with a resource editor and these files contain translated resources. Is it possible by your opinion tu remove .mui extension and install them directly instead of english language files?

I've just tried. It is not possible. that files contains resources only, without any code.

What I have to do with this now?

To make a blank new installation of XPSP3 and after that to install LIP there? After that to create a inf file which I'll integrate somewhere into my localized WXP?

Well ! "Googling" I found.

Readme.txt

http://digsys20-27.p...rian/Readme.txt

Oops. I read now inside OEMReadme.txt (found on the web):

This document should not be re-distributed.

Sorry. Process already given.

Hmmm..... I also tried with Google but I couldn't find them.

I didn't use Sysprep in the past. Today I installed XP into VBox and tried to explore possibilities of Sysprep. Of course, everything I did following instructions.

After restarting my folder C:\Sysprep always disappeared with all files inside. .

AFAICT, still boils down to Install PreActivated via a KEY in SYSPREP.INF (OEM or VOLume, NOT retail) and perhaps WINBOM.INI (Factory?).

Basically REQUIRES that Source is NOT Retail (again AFAICT) and a SYSPREP-style Install (WinPE). At least, this is my understanding (digging through DELL Restore Partition inside the IMAGE on it). HOW? Not really sure YET, but indicates what YOU want to do is via (perhaps/maybe) a WinPE-based CD/DVD install.

(yeah, I've been digging into SYSPREP for my own purposes...)

Ummm...
Yes!

Using WPI is a good idea:

http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/150967-wpi/

THAT way, dude! Forget the rest! Set it up as a WPI Install and let WPI install it AFTER the "base installs". myselfidem found that link from the search I gave (you didn't). ;) Edited by submix8c

I've thought that only admin can do that :rolleyes:

I'm a newbie in the field of unattended installations. As I can see, you suggest to use a WPI method with something like this:

['msiexec.exe /i "%wpipath%\\Install\\Shrink\\LIPSetup.msi" /qn']

where I have to put this code? And why we have "\\" ?

(uggg!!! NO not "Uggs", Mods :D )

You need to go to this Sub-Forum and do some "light" reading.

Here (the Official Website) you will find a wealth of information.

As for the double-backslash, there's a REASON based on the coding of the WPI modules. Basically, don't ask just follow instructions and when you get into trouble using it post a new topic over in the Sub-Forum I listed above.

Please note (JFYI) that WPI can be run from CD/DVD or HDD either Directly or Silently (etc etc) and that the "path" you used was an EXAMPLE and there's a certain way/folders to place the Programs-To-Be-Installed according to instructions (see links given).

Don't be deterred - WPI isn't rocket science. ;)

See ya in the other Sub-Forum. AND please be so kind as to (when you get it working) to come BACK here and give details as to how you did it for others that may wonder.

HTH

Like submix8c said you will find help inside the sub-forum WPI: (example)

Brothas thank you very much for the help but that's not what I'm looking for :)

Name of our topic is: "How to install LIPSetup.msi file from cmdlines.txt?"

We have to conclude that it is not possible to do, right?

Instead of WPI I've decided to embed files from LIPSetup in my desired WXP disk on a tricky way.

1) I made a new installation inside VM software and installed LIPSetup.msi after that.

2) I copied all .dll, .cpl and .exe files contained inside LIP and translated them into CAB format as DL_, EX_ etc.

It wasn't such a hard job as I expected. Only one thing is still unsolved. Namely, I don't know where to put LIP's html files from

%\Windows\Help\MySupport and

%\System32\oobe\mui\0c1a

Also, dunno what to do with XML files from %\Windows\srchasst\mui\0c1a

Exaxtly, I'll have to find WXP english CAB file where the same files are placed and simply replace them.

Yes, because Sysprep tool must be used !

*Edit:

Sysprep on Wikipedia

Maybe a workaround ?:

http://acacha.org/me...cions_desateses

start /wait msiexec /qn /norestart /i LIPsetup.msi
