Hi,

I downloaded XpCreate.exe (free ver) and installed it to C:\xpcreate. The file xpcreate.ini was not in it. I tried extracting to the same folder. I have admin. rights. folder options are set to, show hidden files, show files with known extensions and the other relavent one is good. I clicked on the INIMAN and INITOOL exe files that only made the DOS window flash open/closed.

The directions at the XpCreate site mention nothing about "making" an ini file they only talk about editing it in fact it seems to be the most important file in the whole operation. I really don't fancy making my own since the only thing I need to do is slipstream post sp2 updates (already downloaded) to a unattended installation work already in the making.

Unless i'm missing something simple here I can just go back to doing it manually and forget about XpCreate.

Not needed now.

I got sp2 and updates slipstreamed, and tried it on VMware vmplayer. All went well with slipstream stuff and dx9c but .NET framework didn't install and the drivers were wrong for my VM setup.
I had to intervene when Setup asked to adjust my display settings ( i specified in the answer file but i had the vm window small so maybe thats why). At the welcome screen I got my first and only error that windows couldn't find c:\install\start.cmd. I had start.cmd in $OEM$ folder so it didn't get transfered to system drive. So I don't know how dx9c got installed since both required the same cmd file... I'll look in the vm's windows install log for clues. Here's the start.cmd file:

If i can't figure it out i'll post a question in the Unattended forum...
