HFSLIP missing file for install
Posted 20 October 2005 - 09:53 AM
I ran into some problems when I tried to install Win 2k after slipping ie6.
I used HFSLIP 51017, have the proper files placed in the proper locations, put the new I386 folder from the SOURCESS folder in the folder containing my 2k cd and burned a bootable RW. During the install I received several errors for missing files (16) that I hit ESC to continue anyway, but got fed up and aborted the install.
Some of the missing files are: icam3.inf, pjlmon.dll, rca.sys, srgb.icm, swenum.sys, and on and on.
I placed the ie6 CABS, KB891861 V-2, and i386 from 2k cd in the correct folders. I ran the .cmd for the 2nd time and then replaced the old i386 folder with the new from SOURCESS.
All I want is ie6 slipped, nothing extra.
I messed this up, but I did follow the directions. Is it so simple that I messed this one up?
Here's a link to the directions

Don't be upset! It happens even with the best of us
The files you specified - icam3.inf, pjlmon.dll, rca.sys, srgb.icm, swenum.sys - make me think that something wrong with DRIVER.CAB. Could you please have a look at SOURCESS folder or on you CD and tell me how big is this file (in MB)?
I'm sure your problem can be solved!

And you have not tried to use nLite or run any CMD after slipstreaming?
Please have a look at your SOURCESS one more time: is there SP4.CAB in i386 folder?
I can't help you right now (don't want to mess things up) but please be sure your problem has a very simple solution. Just wait tommyp comes with the remedy
If you are in a hurry or have time to try again get an older version (for example, version from October 16 will be fine).

also, there is no need to use an older version of HFSLIP (Oleg_II, version Oct 17 is not a beta, it is a compatability fix based on Oct 16th to work with my new fileset. 99.9% is unchanged. the only change was fixing "ACCESSOR.IN_" so that HFSLIP looks for "IE.IN_" in FDVFILES.)
i don't know if you mean you replaced the i386 folder in SOURCE. don't. leave SOURCE unmodified.
also, as Oleg_II points out, something appears wrong with your DRIVER.CAB. be sure to recopy it from CD. the released version of HFSLIP does nothing to this file, so something is wrong with the original file, it would seem.

But something prevented creating needed DRIVER.CAB?
Please open this file from SOURCESS folder - DRVINDEX.INF with Notebook and make search for missing files in the list - are these names in the list? (the names of files you were missing during setup)
One more question: could you tell me the size of free space on a disk where your HFSLIP folder resides?
Ok, I see there are people that can really help here

I replaced the 28.1 Driver.cab that the .cmd made in the SOURCESS folder with the original 49.9MB driver.cab from the win 2k cd.
I then burned another bootable RW.
Seems everything worked out. IE6 is installed.
That should be an easy fix in the .cmd since both paths are known (what and to where).
Thanks for the help!!!
fdv, here is the zipped report. Don't look like anything wrong there. I don't use nlite, so that wasn't the problem.
oops forgot to attach the report
here it is. i mean it this time.
