I'm getting many log errors in my WINDOWS folder after installation. Here is my last_session.ini

There are a few concerning KB builds all with the same error message:
1.042: In Function GetReleaseSet, line 1240, RegQueryValueEx failed with error 0x2
6.920: In Function TestVolatileFlag, line 11825, RegOpenKeyEx failed with error 0x2
6.920: In Function TestVolatileFlag, line 11857, RegOpenKeyEx failed with error 0x2

The KB are:
KB942288-v3.log
KB2360937.log
KB2570791.log
KB2570947.log
KB2603381.log
KB2698365.log
KB2736233.log

I also seem to get numerous errors in dd_XPS_LP.txt and dd_XPS.txt, and an array of logs from net framework I believe named similar to dd_wcf_retCA7AF8.txt with next errors:

ServiceModelReg [04:34:51:662]: Warning: Could not detect IIS installation or IIS is disabled, skipping the Web Host Script Mappings component since it depends upon IIS to function properly.
(...)
ServiceModelReg [04:34:51:732]: Installing: Machine.config Section Groups and Handlers
ServiceModelReg [04:34:51:782]: Warning: Configuration section system.serviceModel already exists in c:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Config\machine.config.
ServiceModelReg [04:34:51:792]: Warning: Configuration section system.runtime.serialization already exists in c:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Config\machine.config.
ServiceModelReg [04:34:51:802]: Warning: Configuration section system.serviceModel.activation already exists in c:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Config\machine.config.

At the bottom it says completed successfully, but I could not tell the same since I'm getting also many errors in the Event Viewer (only included one instance of repetitive entries):

Error	22/03/2013	4:42:52	.NET Runtime	None	0	Not Available	DOGWAY

Warning	22/03/2013	4:08:02	WinMgmt	None	63	SYSTEM	DOGWAY

Here is a pack containing all my errors for details.



edit: I'm also checking an old build, and I get the exact same errors, so it's not something tied to anything I have specifically done, but rather a workflow issue. I would think this is the normal behavior when installing OS in a VM?

yes, but this is rather general errors from an unattended installation, that's why I posted here.
I think everything is fine nlite, that's why I posted my script.

Ok, the WinMgmt ID5603 error is just a known warning explained here. Probably because I'm on the Administrator account.

I would like to hear about the other errors, specially this one:
Warning 22/03/2013 4:39:55 System.ServiceModel.Install 3.0.0.0 None 0 Not Available DOGWAY


And also about the Windows Installer 4.5 (KB942288-v3.log) that is driving me mad. I can't install it, well it gets installed because I check the version on command line by typing msiexec and it's indeed v4.5, but the log is always full of errors.
Should I integrate it? add in RunOnce (as I have it)? manually after reboot? What I read somewhere is:
"KB942288 is problematic. You can edit SFCFiles.dll to exclude these Windows Installer files or disable WFP completely."
And I tried to disable WFP, but the log still is full of errors.

Use QFECheck to verify that the updates are installed properly. If it gives no errors then your log errors are safe to ignore.

The link doesn't work, but I found QFECheck googling around.

All my hotfixes report as successful except kb942288-v3:

KB942288-v3: This hotfix should be reinstalled.

The following files are not valid in the system catalog:
   C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSISIP.DLL
   C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSISIP.DLL
   C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSIHND.DLL
   C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSIHND.DLL
   C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSI.DLL
   C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSI.DLL

I'm also having issues installing Java at RunOnce, this is my code, maybe I missed something? it says "copied successful", but then "Can't find C:\jre-7u17-windows-i586.exe", indeed it seems it couldn't be copied to begin with. What drives me nuts, is that my code seems to work running from HDD, while testing, but not from the CD/ISO image in a real XP Install scenario.
xcopy /Y "%~dp0EXECUTE\folder\jre-7u17-windows-i586.exe" %SystemDrive%
start /w %SystemDrive%\jre-7u17-windows-i586.exe /lang=1034 /s /v\"/qn ADDLOCAL=jrecore JAVAUPDATE=0 REBOOT=Suppress EXPLORER=0 MOZILLA=1 SYSTRAY=0 WEBSTARTICON=0
DEL "%SystemDrive%\jre-7u17-windows-i586.exe"


EDIT: and more errors from Procmon. I don't claim all of them are to worry about but I would like to know at least if any, specially minding the lsass.exe one, with ID 664, it's constantly writting without me doing anything at all. I'm gonna install on VM a base OS (without nlite) and check what do I get to compare.

All the errors are present:
Event Viewer:
DHCP ID 1005
PRINT ID 20
WMI Adapter ID 5603
WMI Adapter ID 63

and after installing .NET
ASP.NET 2.0.50727 ID 1020
System.ServiceModel.Install 3.0.0.0


So if that's how Microsoft designed it to be... then let it be. I will just add a reminder so I don't come again asking for it.


Still I want to fix the following, I haven't seen this error again on this install so it makes me wonder.
Error 22/03/2013 4:42:52 .NET Runtime None 0 Not Available DOGWAY
and also KB942288-v3 is impossible to install, even on GUI mode it fails (tested with QFECheck).
How is this Hotfix (Windows Installer 4.5) supposed to be installed? There's no freaking way.

At what point are you trying to install KB942288?

  • SvcPack.inf (T-13)
  • CMDLines.txt (T-12)
  • RunOnceEx or GUIRunOnce (First Logon)
  • Other (please explain...)

RunOnceEx? I call a .bat from nlite that includes all my 3rd party software installs (and further .reg and modifications)
I call it as:
"%~dp0EXECUTE\WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe" /q /norestart

But I don't think it's relevant, now upon a clean install of Windows (no nlite, no nothing), I tried to install from GUI (double click), it seems to go smooth but the created log contains the same "errors" and QFECheck report it as "needs to be reinstalled".

Yes. You don't have issues with kb942288-v3? It seems to be faulty rather than me being the problem, but I don't know that's why I ask.

The XPx64 package has no such issues. I'll give the XPx86 package a try in VirtualBox shortly.

A recent version (v6.1.0.0) can be found in the Microsoft Premier Field Engineering Platform Reporting Tool. Can't remember where I found the latest known version (v6.2.29.0), but the x64 binary can be found in my update pack.

WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe works for me when double-clicked after a clean XP SP3 Pro install. Is your EXE corrupted? The MD5 should be 448447e0ba4560cd558eddb5f5b0809e.

Because I recently had a similar problem I also tested that (file integrity) but the file it's ok. And tested on a clean XP SP3 Pro Install as well.

If I type msiexec -h I get a dialog and a the top "Windows Installer v.4.5.6001.22159", but the log and qfecheck report it as faulty, is there another way to check?

Anyway, it seems that the three relevant files MSISIP.DLL, MSI.DLL, and MSIHND.DLL are successfully copied to system32, checked properties and they are v.4.5.

What language is your OS? If I remember correctly, there is an issue where non-US-en installers mistakenly used the wrong CAT file, which could account for that specific error message.

woow awesome find! yes I'm on ESN.
How I am supposed to copy .cat files only? Do I need to download the ENU build, and take from there?

You'll need the SignTool utility to install the CAT file. SignTool can be obtained from Windows Driver Kit v7.1.0 (located within "GRMWDK_EN_7600_1.ISO", in "WDK\buildtools_<Platform>_cab001.cab"). Or, if you don't feel like downloading 620MB for a 226KB file, SignTool can also be obtained from an addon I created.

To install the CAT file:

  • Extract the KB942288 package using the /x switch.
  • Open a CMD window and navigate to the UPDATE folder within the extracted package.
  • Copy SignTool.exe to the UPDATE folder.
  • In the CMD window type: "signtool catdb /v kb942288-v3.cat".
  • Verify success using QFECheck.

Thanks a ton, for real. That's a world apart from my reach, I even didn't know the /x switch lol
ENU and ESN builds happened to be the same, did the thing and worked. Now I'm ready to wrap my unattended and burn, let it rest and maybe give it a look back again in 2014, when XP support is over.
Thank you.

Dogway,
When looking at some of the logs and error messages you are receiving I have to wonder what you are trying to accomplish by using 3rd party tools for your deployment that you wouldn’t be able to from the available Microsoft tools.

You might want to check out the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT). First, it’s free and it can handle all your deployments including Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2008 and Windows 2008R2. Using MDT, you can easily add both applications and drivers, manage Windows updates, create task sequences, join a domain, add a KMS or MAK product key, create an administrator account, specify time zone, etc. You can also import all user data into the new environment using the User State Migration Tool (also free). To become familiar with the process of using MDT, you might want to check out these videos from the Springboard Series page on TechNet:

Deployment Day Session 1: Introduction to MDT 2012
Deployment Day Session 2: MDT 2012 Advanced

Since you are attempting to deploy Windows XP, you will need the Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK) which will include tools such as the Windows System Image Manager (Windows SIM) that can help you.

You can even tie MDT into Windows Deployment Services if you wish to help streamline the deployment process.

Finally, anytime someone is attempting to do a capture process and deployment I always recommend the following videos:

Alphabet Soup Deployment: Understanding MDT, WDS, MAP, ACT, SCCM, and USMT
Deploy Windows 7 The Easy Way: Using WDS, MDT and AIK – Step-By-Step

It is also important to note that Windows XP End of Support is coming up on as of April 8th, 2014 and it would probably be a good idea to begin planning your migration from Windows XP to Windows 7 or Windows 8. 800 Days until Windows XP End of Support is a great, albeit older, blog post written by Stephen Rose that I strongly recommend reading. As is also stated in the blog post, there are several resources available to assist with this process on either the Windows 7 Springboard Series page or the Windows 8 Springboard Series page.

Hope this helps and keep us posted on your progress!

Winoutreach5,
When looking at your replies I have to wonder if you are actually providing any specific solution to specific problems or only some general pushing towards using only MS tools and upgrading to latest MS Operating System versions, and the generic notion that MDT based deployments can fix *everything*.

The case at hand is - seemingly - an issue originated by the "wrong" behaviour of some MS original updates, connected with "localized versions".

Does MDT deployment "automagically" fix such problematic "localized version" updates? :unsure:

I think I got a hint of the causes of the first issue with .NET Framework.
I got to know of it by chance, it happens to be that after .NET installation hotfixes and assemblies keep compiling in background, first GDR, then LDR hotfixes. it's when LDR (I guess) hotfixes when I get those warnings and errors on Event Viewer.
I knew that in order to prevent background procesing I should execute ngen.exe and do all the hotfixes GDR and LDR at one shot just after .NET install, so there's not interruption or possible conflicts with other components.

I run it like this:
start /wait ngen.exe ExecuteQueuedItems /nologo /silent
start /wait ngen.exe Update /nologo /silent

is it correct (order, flags)?

what I get afterwards are not very promising logs, since it is waaaaaaay over my head, I post them here in case you can help to know what's happening. Mind you that this is a fresh WindowsXP install, so there shouldn't be any errors as far as I'm concerned.
ngen.exe logs

can someone help me?
are the ngen calls correct?, are the ngen logs normal?
my WINDOWS\inf folder weights 185Mb (XP x64), and it's full of folders that contain pretty much the same subfolders, like:

ASP
ASP.NET_2.0
ASP
ASP.NET_64_2.0
aspnet_state
MSDTC Bridge 3.0.0
ServiceModelEndpoint 3.0.0
ServiceModelOperation 3.0.0
ServiceModelService 3.0.0
SMSvcHost 3.0.0
Windows Workflow Foundation 3.0.0
