CABTOOL - Anyone know what it depends on?

14 posts in this topic

nLite is great. :thumbup I use it to strip out services, lots of OS/network stuff, and to do registry tweaks, etc.

However, I keep removing *something* from Windows XP that causes CABTOOL to say "Can't initialize cabinet module." Does anyone know off-hand what CABTOOL depends on?

Thanks in advance for your assistance. :)

P.S. CabTool is a program that can be found here and there is a thread about it on MSFN here.

Last_Session.ini

Please attach your lastsession.ini.

I've just tested on my 120MB CD install and I have no error.

I'm pretty sure it uses cabinet.dll

But the thing is -- cabinet.dll is present on my ISO as well as my install in C:\WINDOWS\System32

OK, let me fire up Filemon quick and see.

EDIT: OK, that's not helping at all

I just put it through dependency walker, and it needs msvbvm60.dll installed to work.

Question: Has anyone here removed COM+? In the MSFN thread I mentioned in my first post, jDoe mentions that he uses compression from catsrvut.dll, which is part of COM if I'm not mistaken. Could this be the problem?

I think I found the answer:

http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?s=&amp...st&p=478848

jdoe (creator of CABTOOL) says that catsrvut.dll and setupapi.dll are required for the program to work. Also, a registry key is needed called Makecab.Makecab.1 in HKCR that I don't have.

What can I do to fix this? Not remove COM?

P.S. Can someone make a .reg file of that key and attach it?

Thanks. Later tonight I'll try to do the exact same session but keeping COM+. I'll let y'all know how it goes.

Hi there, I was loosing time looking at my site stats and I saw this link.

I don't think COM+ is the same as COM. COM is deeply a part of Windows so it can't be removed because important part of it wouldn't work without it.

Let me show you a way to do it (but it is untested).

Make sure catsrvut.dll is not removed by nLite. All the registry keys and values will be added if you register catsrvut.dll with this command "regsvr32.exe catsrvut.dll" (after or while the setup process).

That's all.

--------------

I'm pretty sure it's going to solve the problem.

Let me know ;)
