LATEST VERSION: 3

CREDIT:

Bâshrat the Sneaky and Obliviator they've done the most work.

CHECK OUT THEIR POSTS:
BTS WMP10 Slipstreamer
Obliviator WMP10 Slipstream

djbe: FEDIT program used to add entries to various i386 files.(provided to me by BTS)

Also boooggy: Thanks for all the testing and info !!! :thumbup

Everyone else who helped out and opted to host for me.. Thanks!

WHAT IT DOES:

A Windows Media Player 10 slipstreamer similar to Bâshrat the Sneaky's Slipstreamer but also adds the components not added by the BTS script.

+ MPEG Audio Layer-3
+ DRM Features
+ Portable Media Devices Support
+ Out of Band Component Installer
+ User Mode Driver-related files
+ Additional Encoding and Decoding files
+ WPD Objects?
+ MTP Protocol
+ Additional USB Device Support
+ Online Stores
+ Media Player 10 Skins & Sync Playlists

HOW IT WORKS:

Extract Slipstreamer_v3.exe and run it!
ALSO PLEASE CHECK THE INCLUDED DOCUMENTATION...

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO:

Nlite Users:
1)DO NOT REMOVE WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER 9!!!
2)Use the slipstreamer after Nlite has done it's job

RyanVM Update Pack Users:
1)Run the slipstreamer after integrating RyanVM Pack.
2)The no WMP9 cab is not required (credit: boooggy)

COMPATIBILITY:

Hi boooggy, thanks for testing :D

I am glad that it did work :thumbup and I did some testing with RyanVM update pack...
It's very easy to update the script to check if the pack is installed and modify the setup
accordingly....

Anyway the problem seems to be that Ryanvm pack overwrites SYSOC.INF and thus the pack's entries get removed.. Not a big deal to fix really.

I am currently testing with nlite.

I'll probably update it tonight

EDIT: Oh I wanted to ask... What Language did you use?

@Gnome: if you want I can help you with auto-updating the dosnet.inf, txtsetup.sif,svcpack.inf and sysoc.inf files! ;) PM me if you want this to be automated as well.

And... thanks :) No there is no more pressure on me... I had lost the time to do it and was losing the motivation... I'm glad somebody else took the initiative :)

@Bâshrat the Sneaky: Thanks, I sent you a PM

@boooggy: Did you manually add the entries to sysoc.inf & svcpack.inf or just copy the files from the archive..

Because if you added them manually (i.e. below the entry added by RyanVM Pack)
it should work fine.

If it was otherwise it probably won't work...

@Everyone:
IF anyone else uses the slipstreamer for a language other than english please post your findings...

first time when i did it was like this updated manually everything and then slipstream ryanvm's and then nlited. it did not work. second time i slipstreamed ryanvm's, nlited and the use wmp10 slipstreamer. guess what it worked!!!
ps i did edit manually. and also i updated 3 files that m$ updated via patches.
edit:
one problem but i think is not because the slipstreamer, wmp update still says that it needs an update.

GREAT :thumbup Thanks for the info boooggy...

Bâshrat is sending me a script that should make the integration A WHOLE lot easier and i'll also add a script that'll check if some components were removed by nlite (such as the skins or playlists) and remove them from my part of the inf to avoid issues...

Yeah :P probably tonight, if not then tomorrow...

All the manual steps should then be all but gone(they are kinda annoying), and hopefully it'll work alongside Nlite without problems

I posted a cmd file to integrate all hotfixes for xp and for 2k (integrates ie6 too). I have automated the file modding you suggest in your first post.... If you want, check out the file at this link. I'm sure that your files can be easily implemented in my cmd file. Oh yea, if you have all the hotfixes in the folder structure all set up, there is no need for RyanVM's update pack. And yes, it works with Nlite too.
Cheers

this sounds nice, i look forward to testing it out :)

This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But, it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

When I add the entries to DOSNET.INF, TXTSETUP.SIF and SVCPACK.INF. Does it matter Where below the [Section] I place the entries? BEFORE/AFTER the once already there. I have now placed all entries RIGHT BELOW the [section] before the excisting entries. Is this correct?

@BoardBabe it shouldn't matter where in the [Section] you place it.. as long as it is in the correct section

@kelsenellenelvian: THANKS :thumbup i'll update it again tomorrow, removing the need to add entries to the files mentioned above...

My svcpack.inf is not compressed, and not my hotfix .cat files either, does it matter that your files to put in svcpack dir is compressed?

@BoardBabe: I don't think it'll matter (the cat files) but please report with your results...
As for svpack.inf as long as svcpack.in_ file has been deleted in your i386 directory it's not a problem

@BoardBabe: Thanks!! I would really like to find out if other languages work other than english. If it doesn't work with your current configuration could you please try one install
without any other components,nlite,updates,hotfixes,ect.. and report if it worked. Tomorrow i'll probably post the new tool that'll be really easy to use and should work if you have other components,nlite,ect.. installed.

Sure, Ill test it tomorrow. I don't use nlite or such, but have /integrated hotfixes. I previously used Bäshrats slipstreamer 1.1 and that worked perfectly! So lets hope this do also :)

Will there be any point of "upgrading" or doing it again when you release the next version where we dont have to modify the files?

@BoardBabe: No it'll just easier for users that don't yet have it integrated and working..
So if you got it working then there wouldn't be a reason to upgrade....

As for the BTS script working... if that was the case with your previous UXPCD(i.e. it worked) then this should work 100% provided that your entries are correct.

EDIT: I have some studying to do for a test that just jumped up on me so i'll only be able to finish the new version by tomorrow(no really :) )

If using RyanVM's update-pack we still need the WMP9-less files, right?
(Assuming this since it's based on Bashrat's pack).
