CABTOOL - Anyone know what it depends on?

Recommended Posts

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.

OK, let me fire up Filemon quick and see.

EDIT: OK, that's not helping at all

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?

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 ;)
