RISult - Integrating RIS + RyanVM/BTS packs Version 1.1.7
Posted 16 February 2006 - 01:53 PM
The reason for the number choice is simply that I need to make sure that these 2 commands are the last to execute. Therefore if you want to run more than 8 commands you'll need to bump the numbers of the RISult added entries up slightly.
With regards to if it works without 1 - 8, it still works as everyone who uses RISult would not get the files cleaned at the end of the installation (which I know does occur).
You can use any of the numbers you like. The important point reagarding the BTS entries is simply that they are executed in the right order and preferably last of all.
As you correctly suppose, the commands are executed in numerical order.

RISult 1.1.1 up now. Had to fix issue with sif file.
If you use the default ristndrd.sif file then there is no change.
If you use a custom sif file then after RISult has completed you will need to copy the two GUIRunOnce commands added by RISult from ristndrd.sif to your custom sif file.
You will then need to delete ristndrd.sif.

RISult v1.1.2 now available. The newest BTS DP Base 6.02.4 will NOT work with previous versions.
The only change to the latest version of RISult is to restore functionality with the newest version of DP Base.

I have a 2003R2 domain with about 250 PCs and 40 Laptops all running XP Pro sp2, I have been using RIS with limited sucess mainly due NICs and was all but ready to give up when I stumbled onto this site.
I have been reading posts for about two weeks now so I have read quite a bit about RIS and silent installs.
I tried autoris just because the author wanted to know if it would work with win2003, but i have had no sucess so I then downloaded Risult but I'm having problems with that too almost the same message so I was hoping someone could give me a shove in the right direction.
The error message with RISULT is
line 62 of the inf file tmp\678d2f61acb214ac3214aed15b3426.sif in invalid
press any key to restart
AUTORIS had a very similar error but i failed to write down the exact error.
I love this site

The problem lies with your SIF file (located in the templates folder).
Please can you post your SIF file, being careful to first edit out the Windows licence key and administrator password, if present.

here is my sif file
I'm just learning so please be gentle if i have made a huge mistake
AdminPassword=Your Encrypted Password Goes Here
Description="WinXP SP2 - Custom"
Help="This will install Windows XP SP2."
Profiles = WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall
Mode = 0

It appears though your encrypted admin password is annoying RIS. Could you try a plain text password instead?
Let me know how it goes.
Also, if you need any further instructions just let me know too.

I have tried an install on two different pcs Fulji seimens & a Dell GX520 on the same 17" dell tft monitor.
The Fuji installs fine & the plug & play for the monitor dosent come up. When I do a ris install now on a gx520 the part to search the web for drivers apears. you can select to not look on the web then force it to search & then it installs plug & play drivers for the monitor.
The problem seems to occur on what VGA/Display adapter you have in the PC & not with the actual monitor. The GX520 has an intel display adapter.cannot give details of the exact one at present.
Does anyone have a solution to get round this issue as its anoying when you have to put input in on an unattended install..

I would do a build with only RyanVM Update pack integrated (presuming you're using RyanVM packs!) to check if the issue is related to this - as I've certainly heard of this happening outside of RIS (and therefore do not think it is specific to either RIS or RISult).
If you're not using the RVM pack then then try leaving out the BTS packs too.
Let me know how it goes.

I'd have a look at this topic over at Ryan's forums:
It *may* be something you need to take up over there.

my build is risult 2.0.4 latest ryan & BTS..
when my machine install s complete C:\D were the bts drivers are held still remains. for some reason the directory is not deleted. it apears as if the guirunonce is not running & the bts cleenup.cmd is not running.
this is what is put into the sif file when RIsULT runs..
command9 = "%SystemDrive%\D\BTS_DPs_finish.cmd"
command10 = "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\TEMP\BTS_DPs_cleanup.cmd"
would a runonceEX.cmd run from cmdlines.txt be effecting these commands running.?

I've seen this problem myself - and not just with RIS/RISult. It has been mentioned on the BTS forums. My solution is that I add an extra:
to the [GUIRunOnce] section of the SIF file. The cleanup.cmd I create just deletes the "%SystemDrive%\D" folder.
This works for me.
Sorry I can't be more specific.
