HFSLIP, The 2K/XP/2K3 slipstreamer

411 posts in this topic

It's difficult for me to diagnose the problem without an HFSLIP.LOG file from the run with v1.0.1.

The files you mentioned are DirectX files and they are slipstreamed with version 60810 as well.

I have searched a lot. I could not find the download link for HFSLIP. There is no link on the HFSLIP home page. Some dummy, don't know the reason for this.

Somebody please post an alternate link.

The HFSLIP homepage (www.hfslip.org) has a link that says downloads. The first message of this thread has a link to the downloads. Both links point to the same spot.

@ grzesiek and Tomcat76

For Testpurposes I ran the new n-lite yesterday and had the same problems. The WDM drivers were not installed correctly and Wincoder/Winproducer crashed due to a lack of dlls. Didn´t use HFSLIP to create this CD so I guess it´s either the new DX9 Cab or one of the Hotfixes or that the SFP was off. As a workaround I ran the DX9 setup.exe again after W2K installation was done and everything worked fine again.

[EDIT]

Seems not to be a bug in the progam(s). Just rechecked with HFSLIP and nlite. I used the same old DX9 Cabs as ever and SFP was ON. So it´s got to be one of the last Hotfixes since it´s very unlikely that two different progams generate the same prob using identical sources.

I have a suggestion for the forums and some features requests for HFSLIP. I could not find a better place to post these questions / requests so hopefully this not too off topic.

My question: Is there a formal place for posting forum suggestions or HFSLIP feature requests?

If not, my suggestion for the forum is to make a sticky thread under HFSLIP for users to post feature requests. If it was moderated then the requests could be consolidated and tracked in the 1st reply with the first actual post including instructions for how to request a change and what information to include in the change.

I have the following two requests for future versions of HFSLIP:

1. Add a value to the HFANSWER.INI (like SKIPPROMPTS) that if set allows HFSLIP to run and pull all of the information it needs from the HFANSWER.INI file and does not prompt the user for any input, including the "I have read the instructions" bit.

2. Add support for a command line CD burning. The parameters would be stored in the HFANSWER.INI file. One tool that would be easy to support is the CDBURN.EXE tool from the Windows 2003 Resource Kit since the resource kit it is freely available for anyone to download and use. In the script I would think that burning the CD would be made dependant on creating an ISO, and use the ISONAME property as one of the parameters passed to the CD burning tool. Obviously any other free CD burning tool would also be acceptable.

I have personally made these changes (hacks) to the 1.0.1 version script and it greatly simplifies times when I am troubleshooting driver installations and I am making several (20-30) CD's (because you can't test storage drivers in a VM) in a day, or I am making multiple ISO's for different VM's and don't want to have to cycle through the same screens on each run.

I also wanted to say the script is great and has been a great help!

Thanks!

@pdxrob: Both of the changes you are requesting have already been requested previously.

1. It would be best not to discuss this publicly as it is NOT A SUPPORTED FEATURE. Please PM me for details.

2. glentium started a discussion about such an implementation. However, the authors haven't reached much of a consensus on it or discussed it much.

the IE7 integration doesn't seem working on my language. After I install the system and open up the internet explore... the about menu tells me that it is IE6 instead of IE7.. However, WMP11 works fine. Log attached.

Thanks for the great work you have put in the slipstreamer :)

In my language ie7 dont wont to install too, but i have solved my last problem with tv tuner, i dont know what exactly was the reason but in version 1.1 and 1.2 all works ok. I'll try to find a way to install ie7, maybe the installation works only on english windows or there are wrong switches.

@ctpoon

I downloaded the CHT version and see nothing out of the ordinary with it. It should've worked. Can I take a look at SVCPACK.INF from SOURCESS\I386?

BTW... If you use the latest test release, you can change KB926139 to KB926140 in your language.

@grzesiek

I couldn't find a Polish version to dissect. Could that be the reason it failed?

The switches are universal; they work for every language in which IE7 is made available. I also tested this completely with XPSP2 English and XPSP2 Dutch.

Hmmm...given that some people are still having problems with non-English versions, it's possible that the problem lies with the handling of KB898543 for localized languages.

But I'll let Tomcat deal with it. ;)

Wondering...

1) XP Home or Pro?

2) Do the programs which you put in HFSVCPACK install correctly?

3) Do you see IE7.EXE in SOURCESS\I386\SVCPACK?

4) Do you see this line near the bottom of SVCPACK.INF in SOURCESS\I386?

IE7.EXE /quiet /norestart /update-no /nobackup

5) If your answer is "yes" for questions 2,3 and 4... does IE7 install properly if you remove both WMP11 and KB898543-v3?

During ie7 installation there is step to validate a copy of windows, i dont know if this is during silent install. So maybe because this ie dont want to install for some people, because they have not good copy :whistle: .

What proper reg file? :lol:
i think this is what dziubek meant :P ...
The only difficulty is: that reg value would be inserted before IE7 is installed. If the IE7 installer overwrites it again, I'll have to switch the order around of the programs in SVCPACK.INF so I can embed a REG ADD in HFSLIP.CMD that's executed AFTER IE7 is installed.

OK, guys. Try the latest test release; it installs IE7 at first GUI logon. :)

@Tomcat

It does not install. The dos part of the setup says that the file cannot be copied, but its in the i386 folder, and in txtsetup.sif.

Any chance of it get slipstreamed again? It was working (with issues, but working).

I just tested the "GUI version". I got no copy error (and it installed at first GUI logon as expected).

I can't have HFSLIP slipstream IE7 because of the problems. I'll look into it again next year.
