Hi,

The "D" folder is created by Bashrat's scripts to house some DriverPack files. It is not a direct creation of RISult and is necessary in order for successful install of drivers (so needs to be there).

Your posted files seem fine. You are correct in assuming that commenting out/deleting the [GUIRunOnce] "Command11 =" line in the SIF file will achieve the effect outlined in my previous posts.

Can I check that you are copying all of the required DriverPacks to "DriverPacks_Store" and leaving them in their compressed .7z state?

Can I also check that you have copied the "DriverPacks_BASE.exe" file to "Common\BTS"?

Are you using the latest release of "RISult" and "DriverPack_BASE" (I notice that you are using an old version of Ryan's Update Pack)? RISult will *not* work correctly with the newest DriverPack_BASE unless you are using the current version.

Without the above files the drivers will not install. If you have done the above then I'm currently at a loss as to why it's not working as it should.

Cheers,

Andy

Hi Pete,

Again that looks fine... I'm assuming that that's the structure before you run RISult. If you have the time could you post something similar showing the structure in the RIS_Install folder after running RISult?

Could you confirm whether only some non-native drivers are getting installed, or no non-native drivers at all?

Thanks,

Andy

Hi Andy,

Copy of structure - please see attachment Attached File  RISult_Install.zip   38.35KB   69 downloads

Its just the sound, WLAN and video drivers that do not install.

Cheers

Thanks again for the help

Hi Pete,

Thanks - looks fine. Last 2 things to check:

1. The devices you want to install are definately supported by the DriverPacks (check Bashrat's forums).

If you are unsure then please list the make/model of the hardware that does not install.

2. You are restarting the BINSVC after copying the completed RISult image to your RIS server?

Cheers,

Andy

Hi Andy,

I've installed using the CD ROM version and all drivers install fine on the machine in question - so drivers are supported based on that.

Yes I do restart the Service after copy.

On investigation I have found that when the error appears on the machine Im building;

C:\D\WatchDriverSigningPolicy.exe

Windows cannot find 'C:\D:\WatchDriverSigningPolicy.exe'. Make
sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search
for a file, click the start button, and then click search.

the machine has pulled down from the server a folder with this name '$win_nt$.~ls' at which point WatchDriverSigningPolicy.exe in looking for C:\D\

Can't get my head round that one!

If I where to try and copy drivers I have to the RISULT, how would I go about it?

Cheers again for your help.

Pete

Hi,

I'm a little stumped. I'll have to go and perform a RISult build just to convince myself that there's nothing wrong with my application, though it has been working fine as far as I can tell.

I'll get back to you when I can confirm everything is ok.

*** EDIT Just built a RISult image and all drivers installed fine, no errors etc ***

I can only think we're still missing something about the way in which you put your build together or that there's some level of access/permission that you do not have on your finished systems, which is preventing the build from finishing correctly.

Can you confirm that your %systemdrive% is C: and how many partitions you have on your completed machine?

Cheers,

Andy

Hi Andy,

Created on a system with only one partition which was C: and again with another with three partitions with the system drive being h: on the later. Both with the same outcome

Hi Pete,

This is driving me crazy. What I don't understand is that you've confirmed that "cleanup.cmd" is present in \...\RIS_Install\$OEM$\$$.

If this is so it should definately get copied to C:\WINDOWS (that's the purpose of Microsoft's $$ folder).

In the SIF file cleanup.cmd is executed via:

[GUIRunOnce]
command11 = %windir%\cleanup.cmd

Given this it should be found. The only reasons it wouldn't work is if:

1. You don't copy the $OEM$ folder (along with the i386 folder) to your RIS server. The $OEM$ and i386 folders should be placed within the same folder on your RIS server. Can you confirm this is so as it is now my number one guess why things are not working for you? See RISult_Instructions.txt for more information if required.

** - POST-INTEGRATION TASKS - **

When RISult is completed you will need to perform two further tasks:

1.  Copy the i386 and $OEM$ folders from RIS_Install back to the appropriate folder on the RIS server
2.  Restart the BINLSVC service on the RIS server (type "NET STOP binlsvc" THEN "NET START binlsvc" at a cmd prompt)

2. You don't have cleanup.cmd in \...\RIS_Install\$OEM$\$$ (but your previous posts show you do).
3. You don't have permission to write that file to that location and/or to execute it. But you say you do.

Can you think of any other reason you'd get:

C:\WINDOWS\Cleanup.cmd

Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\Cleanup.cmd'. Make
sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search
for a file, click the start button, and then click search.

I feel the reason for this anomolous error is at the heart of why your drivers aren't installing, as well as the other file not found issues you highlighted.

If we've still not got this then I'll post one of my SIF files for you to try.

Please let me know what you think.

Andy

Hi

Thanks for this great tool. Can't wait to try it out.

I have a question though:

I have a working RIS setup which after the installation will launch a few runonceex jobs and reg files through CMDLINES.TXT

How do I preserve this setup with RISULT?
In the documentation it says I have to create a CUSTOM.CMD file and call scripts from that.

But can I just leave it the way it is now and proceed without all this custom.cmd stuff?

Thanks!

HI,

No problem. I use "cmdlines.txt" too. Just place cmdlines.txt into the \\...\Custom\$OEM$ folder before executing RISult. By default anything you call in your cmdlines.txt will default to this folder as the path, so if you're referencing a file through cmdlines.txt that's not located within $OEM$, make sure you get the path right.

Custom.cmd is not required for such a customisation (I used to use it for big changes such as dynamically compiling and slipstreaming the recovery console).

Good luck,

Andy

Hi,

Do you mean text mode setup network/mass storage drivers, or GUI mode drivers (i.e. Graphics, Sound, etc).?

Also, can you confirm whether a missing $OEM$ folder was the reason for your build issues, as stated in my previous post to you?

Thanks,

Andy

Hi Andy,

Not sure if there were was a missing $OEM$ folder. Sorry for missing that in the last post!

It seems everything installs and with no error messages now - it seems I just needed to modify the (OemPreinstall = no) line in the Sif, to (OemPreinstall = Yes). Is this right?

Works great and is a smashing tool!

Cheers again for all your help.

Yep - you're right, I should have spotted that one! OEMPreinstall=Yes is what you needed.

Glad everything worked out for you.

Hi,

Can you try downloading the BASE pack again? It sounds like it may be corrupt. I've not seen that error before.

The BASE file should be in the BTS folder.

The DriverPacks should be in the DriverPacks_Store folder.

Failing all of the above, try re-downloading RISult in case that got corrupted somehow.

Let me know how it goes,

Andy

I did and i get the same error. Im not suppose to extract it first before running risult.cmd right?
Apparently 7z is trying to extract it but cant. Is it suppose to do that?

Hi,

Correct. RISult does the extraction, you don't need to.

I can't think why it's not working for you.

Could you please try going to the 7zip homepage and downloading the latest stable 7zip? Having done that, extract it and drop 7z.exe into the BTS folder (overwriting the one supplied with RISult)?

It may be something I've somehow missed with the version of RISult I've included, though I used it last week without incidence.

Hopefully, that should be the end of it. If it does fix the issue for you, I'll update the RISult download ASAP.

Cheers,

Andy

Apparantly i had to install the 7zip program on my risserver. I dident know I had to do that.

Oke it works!

But im getting another error.

Performing post-integration processing on RIS file set...
The system cannot find the file specified.
Done.

I dont know which file that would be though. Maybe it wont even be a problem. Going to test out my image now.

Hi,

You shouldn't have to install 7zip on your RIS server, so something's else must be wrong.

I suspect this also has something to do with the other errors you're getting.

Can I check that you're using:

Windows Server 2003 Standard/Enterprise SP1 (RIS server)
Windows XP Professional SP2 (client)

You are using vanilla XP file sets (i.e. straight from CD) and not nlited, etc?

That you have read the instructions enclosed with RISult.

Also, can you please copy the 7z.exe file from the z-zip program folder to the RISult BTS folder (overwriting the existing 7z.exe) and then uninstall 7-zip through Add/Remove programs? This will show whether it is the 7z.exe file itself that is the issue.

Cheers,

Andy

Im using a test risserver which is on a virtual PC maybe thats the cause. The virtual pc is located on the workstation I currently use.

Here's what I did.
I downloaded 7zip and then copied 7z.exe to the Ris server(virtual PC) and then tried to extract with it. No go.
Only after i had installed the 7zip application on the Risserver was I able to extract with 7z.exe

Hi,

That's weird, as the only file that's used AFAIK is 7z.exe.

Anyhow, I'll investigate and see if I can't reproduce.

Hi all,

Some of you may know that I've got a new job, and so my current employer will no longer be able to host RISult for me. As such, I'm doing a couple of things:

1. Changing from .zip to .7z compression method in order increase compression efficiency.
2. Looking for new hosting.

The download links for RISult may therefore be changing shortly, so please be patient.

Thanks,

Andy

ps - There will be more drastic changes in store when Bashrat releases his new utility...

Just two short questions Andy. Why is the restart at the end of the installation necessary and how can I check if the hotfixes from RyanVM have actually been installed?

Also thanks for Risult it works great!
