I've downloaded the MUWEB_SITE cab from the link on Tommy76's page placed it in the HFCABS folder.

It appears the files within this cab are present in SOURCESS however when I go to the Microsoft update website it asks to install activex controls...

I've also added WindowsUpdate20.exe, Package Installer 6.1.22.4 , windows update cab (IUCTL.cab) and the office update cab (OPUC4.cab).

Have I missed something else?

Thanks all, :thumbup

Yes, unfortunately, you can't have MU automatically detect the DLLs unless you run the file I've attached to the following post. Place it in HFSVCPACK.

I've added your exe to HFSVPACK, but microsoft update still asks to download active x controls?

I'm guessing the DLLs didn't get registered properly. Which version of HFSLIP were you using?

LAtest stable release, and the latest test release.

I've included...

IUCTL.CAB
LegitCheckControl.cab
OPUC4.CAB
MUWEB_SITE.CAB

in the HFCABS folder

and,

Super-Magician's selfextracting exe (Datastore.exe) in the HFSVCPACK folder

Windows update works fine, but microsoft update asks for activex controls.

Should also note, I use nLite to slipstream IE7

I've tested this without slipstreaming IE7 and Microsoft Update worked.
So I'm assuming IE7 requires different controls maybe?

Think its the runonce problem caused by IE7.... Will test it by replacing the IE7 runonce dll with the old IE6...

Funny... I never experienced this RunOnceEx problem... Not even when HFSLIP slipstreamed IE7 and didn't delete the IE7 version of iernonce.dll...

Sure you aren't removing anything with nLite?

Open WindowsUpdate.log (not Windows Update.log) from the WINDOWS folder in Notepad and look for a "Setup: Checking whether self-update is required" header. Below that, you should see a bunch of files being referred to and some details on whether they need to be updated or not. Is everything OK there?

2006-12-07 17:14:07 668 394 Setup Update required for C:\WINDOWS\system32\mucltui.dll: target version = 0.0.0.0, required version = 5.8.0.2469


Only file that comes up as missing.

mucltui? That's gotta be a new file. It isn't part of any update package I know of...
I suppose it's the MU equivalent of wucltui.dll.

I registered the MUCLTUI.DLL on a clean install.

Tried Microsoft Update and it's still requiring the ActiveX controls...

Ran out of ideas now!

Can you try redownloading MUWEB_SITE.cab? I still have yet to test to see whether I encounter the same error with the latest release and IE7.

Will report back my findings as I soon as I get a chance!

I can confirm this. I think it's that authorization cab but I'm not sure.

I still don't have mucltui.dll in system32 after running Microsoft Update, though; neither on Win2K (normal system) nor on WinXP (virtual machine).

It could be as simple as this:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Services]
"DefaultService"="7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Services\7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d]
"AuthorizationCab"="muauth.cab"

I'll test this tomorrow when I'm more awake... :D

@ SUper Magician

Tried that!

@ Tomcat76

I've deleted those keys, and tried Microsoft update...

Didnt ask for active x.


Gonna add it to my reg file and run a test install, will report back after.

Ok, unfortunately those keys don't fix it...

However I've found out if you change add this key to the following, it stops asking to install activex...


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Stats\{6E32070A-766D-4EE6-879C-DC1FA91D2FC3}\iexplore]
"Flags"=dword:00000004

Change it to 00000000 to see it ask for the activex controls, and 00000004 for it to not ask.

Going to test this on an fresh install...

That's an interesting find, antonio_king. It could be that the extension isn't activated by default in IE7.

Woo Hoo!!

It worked!

Maybe HFSLIP could add this reg tweak when integrating/slipstreaming IE7?

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.
