HFSLIP, The 2K/XP/2K3 slipstreamer

Hmm... I'm having an issue getting silent installers renamed from their original names to their HFSlip'd names. As in, the original file name was 0_dotNET11SP1.exe, in the (HFGUIRUNONCE folder) but in I386 of the SOURCESS folder, it is changed to HFGUI1.EXE. The only problem is that the setup files still have the original file name, instead of the HFGUI1.EXE, so setup fails to load the files properly.

Attached is my hfslip.log, zipped up.

These are supposed to be given their original name back by Windows setup during txtmode copy. Can you attach a zip of your new TXTSETUP.SIF?

It may be that Windows setup is tripping over the underscore, or the combination of the number with the underscore. Does the problem persist if you remove it?

Works fine now. Thanks for the heads up on the underscore - that was certainly the issue... although, despite the fact that the files in the original build were in the HFGUIRUNONCE folder, they ran at T-13, instead of first bootup. Now, with the new build (see attached hfslip logfile), it all runs at the proper time - on first bootup, with no errors at all. * I did replace the older Dot Net 1.1 + Dot Net 2.0 exe files with RogueSpear's integrated 1.1sp1/2.0/j++ package, and renamed that to dotnet.exe. *

Again, I praise everyone that is developing this script. It's truly a timesaver, and despite the issues I've had with it, I will continue using it for a long, long time to come. :P

I also have a problem with HFSLIP...

I integrate all updates (also IE6, WMP9, DirectX 9c and MDAC 2.8 SP1), and then I make an ISO (with nLite) to test the CD on a virtual machine.

I always get the same error during setup... the message is something like "setup.exe has encountered an error, the installation will terminate here". I think it is something related to Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) because I always get the error during its setup. Up to now, I'll try to remove DTC with nLite to check if the error persist, but I think it's a bug related to DTC updates.

Hope I've been useful! And thanks for this very good program

I am using the latest release and XP Pro. I noticed the build moves the Games folder from accessories to the main program menu? :blink:

Is this on purpose?

That's done by default on all XP systems. The last OS to have games in Accessories was Windows 2000.

Thanks, I am working with so many OS's I get confused.

One other question, the .Net framework optimization usually runs a lot of processes (1.1 and 2 with patches) tried the silent net maker from TC as well as roguespears silent installer renamed to dotnet.exe and they both flag an error in the application log: .Net Runtime Optimization Service (cir_optimization_v2.0.50727_32)-Service reached limit of transient errors: Will shut down. Last error returned from service manager 0x800736b 1. Any insite?

@Smiley89

And what if you let HFSLIP create the ISO and install from that?

@mystek

I replied to your question in the SNM thread.
