Runoncex.inf Runs Only If In Windows\inf
Posted 27 February 2005 - 05:08 PM
I try to run it manually from a command prompt and it won't run unless runonceex.inf is located in %windir%\inf, even though I make the working directory to be where runonceex.inf is located.
I read a post somewhere that said if runonceex.inf is called from cmdlines.txt, that it should be located in same folder as cmdlines.txt. I think this is incorrect.
I would like to make use of %1% to access the CD during install, however, I guess %1% in this case is %windir%\inf, and I am stuck for another method to access the cd. Does anyone know of a way to make this work WITHIN THE INF.
Thank you all.

I received the same error message when running the following commands straight from cmdlines.txt:
"rundll32 setupapi,InstallHinfSection XP 128 runonceex.inf"
The location of runonceex.inf was in the $OEM$ folder, but it was not being read for some reason. The second command generated the error message you saw.
To fix it, I modified the path of the first command by adding a .\ in front of runonceex.inf and having both command run in a .cmd file called upon by cmdlines.txt. It ran flawlessly with no errors.

Also you can run the .inf straight from the .inf file you add the following lines at the end.
RunOnce = "Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce"
