Don't know we should be happy or sad.... Coz Xpize is released here first in MSFN. But rather in Neowin. :unsure:

Anyway start testing and slipstreaming :thumbup

Downloaded, slipstreamed and used installer for installed windows. Great experience. Xpero has really put in a lot of effort. Keep up the good work!!

BTW I don't seem to get along with winrar skinning option. How to get it through? I tried it on Winrar 3.42 installed fresh. But no success.

Thanks!

i used the system restore point thing and everything's fine now

i have turkish windows, if that helps for "debugging"

when the logon screen appears, my windoz restarted a few times. i turned off that "restart when windows encounters an error" thing and then removed 3.0

@clavicle:
Do you have WinRAR installed in C:\Program files? maybe thats the problem.

@Nanaki:
Sorry, I forgot to give info about the clock. The clock is automatically installed for English and German systems by now. If you want the clock, just select "Enlgish" when the installation prompts to select language.

@radiognome:
hmmm, it doesnt sounds well, I cant tell you an exact solution for this. I've taken note of it, hope this can be solved in next revision.

hallo xpero

i allready wrote a mail to you, but i post here, becouse maybe other users know the problem

ok i want to install xpize silent direct after xp installation

in my modded registry the restore system ist turned off

so if i use XPIZE.EXE /S the silent install hangs messeging "creation of restor point failed" and i have to press ok

it would be great if there is a second switch like /NORESTORE implemented in the setup

if switches for the winrar and themes selection could be implemented it would be really great

maybe like this "XPIZE.EXE /S /RESTORE=0 /WINRAR=1 /THEMES=0 /EXTRAS=1"

thanks

Hi Xpero

I tried to skin Winrar both in Program files directory and also other location where I usually keep it installed. But if winrar directory is not located in Program Files, as suggested by you, then another problem could also be that my program files directory is a subfolder of the windows directory. So there will certainly be a problem because, perhaps, your installer is rather than using absolute paths is using fixed path for winrar. Am I right. I will work around with full windows and default folder structure to see the effect.

Thanks for the reply. But you must keep the option of manually adding the required directory in the path.

Thanks again! Great work again!

oh if the installer is using fixed path than may it happen, that the installation in c:\program files\ will bi patched, but i am currently working on my second windows in d:\program files\

that would be horrible ?!?

XPize3 gives me problems during T-12 without integrating. For a start, it gives an error when trying to make a system restore point. Then it resets my wallpaper. >_<

Bug report: XPize modifies user32.dll, which in some unknown way, causes applications using some of its APIs to crash. Example: Futuremark 3DMark03. This bug was found on Windows XP SP1.

Yes, xpize works to skin Winrar only when winrar is located in the default folder, ie, \program files\winrar. I just installed new windows and ran xpize to skin winrar 3.42 and it worked!!

here's a couple of bugs that need to be checked, using latest nLited iso

during install throws a couple of popups, one stating uxtheme not compatable

with this version. Also, cdimage would not work. I had to uninstall command

window color changes ect. Over all very nice work and a great uninstaller......

BD

EDIT using XP Pro sp2, nLite 99.8b5 , WAIT installer, made one change went

back to xpize 2.5 and all problems were gone..........

Regarding switches:

By now, XPize 3.0 doesn't support the /NORESTORE switch. *Maybe* it will be implemented in next version.
Components selection switches are not supported and difficult to implement. I can't promise anything for next version

Regarding WinRAR:

In theory, the WinRAR patch is applied wherever you have installed WinRAR, cuz the installer looks for the value in the registry. Anyway, it is safer to have it installed in C:\Program files

@bonedaddy and @Aegis
I have taken note on that, I will try to find what is wrong.

Thanks for reporting and for comments

same problem with the /s switch ...
if the system restoring is disabled a window pops up saying that the point creation failed and you have to click ok to go on, that isn't really silent :(

hope could be fixed fast ;)

i tried the way with autoit - but had no successful result

the window popping up has no window title and therefor i did not get it managed to press ok button

@xpero

it would be nice if you can tall, where the changes of the command box are made - i do not find them *gg*

the component selection is not so important

components not required like screensaver and so on can be deleted by batch files and the background and theme can be changed by registry - so it is just a little work to use regshot and get the entrys if you do not like the default tings *gg*

Hi, so how to install winrar patch when i slipstream xpize on cd?

Coz getting Xpize on cd is wasting space only for the winrar to patch.

@iwod, install xpize on your host machine and export winrar.exe to your winrar's silent installation ;)
