Question About Replacing Files On Xpcreate

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, my question is:

I want to know if files on folder FILESCD\$OEM$\$$, FILESCD\$OEM$\$$\inf, FILESCD\i386 are tested to be the newest files when the cdroot are created.

PD translated by google and me. :P

FILESCD is used for users to place files they will need. For instance, in FILESCD\I386, you would find the winnt.sif file, which is only updated by the user. Other locations, i.e. $OEM$\xxx are done by the user as well. XPCREATE does not verify if one file is newer than the other. It just copies them over during the process.

To sum it up, users need to check version dates. XPC does not do it for you.

Any way to check the newest file of two files?

qchain perhaps? o any soft like this?

QCHAIN is used to chain multiple patches together. It is not needed if using XPC, since it does its own thing with them, unless you have to run them on the first logon. You aren't being specific on the exactl files, but again, anything in the FILESCD is what you put in there.

Hi everybody!!

:( so I will look for some soft that check file versions.

You put the files in FILESCD. XPC does not. Seems that point is getting lost somewhere in the translation.
