Q. Disk Images\Disk 1. Is this a 1 cd compilation?
Q. Is Sims 2 loaded from files in a folder or a mounted ISO?
Q. Is Sims 2 loaded from the Harddrive?
it is copies of the disks on my HD. The reason it is in the misleading named folders was i was following EA's directions to create a backup on the HD of the Game. there are multiple folders (Disk 1, Disk 2, Disk 3, Disk 4). It is not an image.
Q. Is this a multi-boot cd?
No, it only installs XP Pro
Q. Is RunOnceEx running the game executable or AutoRunGUI.dll or ...?
Runonce is only calling the Autoit Script which in turn calls the AutoRun.exe (which depends on the AutoRunGUI.dll and runs the sims 2 setup)
Q. Where is this AutoRunGUI.dll in reference to your RunOnceEx?
Q. Where is this AutoRunGUI.dll in reference to your AutoIt script?
RunOnceEx is in the root of the drive
the Autoit script and AutoRunGUI.dll file are both in "Images\Disk 1" of the disk
Q. Is your RunOnceEx file a cmd file or a AutoIt script?
its a .cmd file that calls the Autoit Script for some of my installs
Q. Could you post the part of the script that seems to be causing the issue.
its at that that it calls autorun which depends on AutoRunGUI.DLL
normally i would just hardcode the drive letter in, but windows install likes to mess with my head and change drive letters on each install i do
its kinda strange though cause it works fine if i double click on the script in windows though
