  1. Hi,

    Dism for Windows 7 offers no function to remove components like in Windows 8 or at least I didn't find it.

    Example for Dism in Windows 8
    DISM.exe /Online /Disable-Feature /Featurename:Solitaire /Remove

    However in Windows 7 you can remove single components via Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Turn Windows Features on or off.
    This starts OptionalFeatures.exe, but I couldn't find any arguments for this exe. With WinToolkit you can for example only remove the whole game group, but not single games.

    Is there a way to remove components via a command?

  2. If you want update to Avira Free Antivirus 2013 do the following:

    • Create or get an old unattended package with Avira Setup Creator (avira.exe)
    • Download the current Avira Free Antivirus 2013 offline setup (about 100 MB) from http://www.avira.com
    • Open the downloaded file with 7-Zip and extract it to a folder
    • Open the old unattended package (avira.exe) with 7-Zip
    • Drag the extracted files from the new setup to the open 7-Zip window and overwrite all files

    It works for me on Windows XP SP3 (32 Bit). I didn't notice any problems so far (scanning folders works).

  3. Hello,

    I didn't manage to integrate KB2686509 with HFSLIP. The file is under HFSVCPACK_SW1\WindowsXP-KB2686509-x86-DEU.exe

    After the installation Windows Update reports KB2686509 missing.

    System is Windows XP SP3.

    HFSLIP file checker reports this

    Can somebody help me on that?



  4. Hi everyone,

    i can't get KB2418241 or KB982168 integrated, though the files are present.

    I have these settings




    Can someone please post his content? Maybe I'm missing some files...

    Thanks in advance.

  5. Hi,

    I've downloaded the latest version of SWFLASH.cab from Mim0's site as well from the link provided by jvidal.

    I've tested both versions and File-Checker gives me this error:

    Running HFSLIPFC v.2011/05/10 at 27.08.2011 16:30:49,48
    Found unexpected version of Adobe Flash Player (HFCABS\SWFLASH.cab)

    Does anyone else experience that problem?

  6. Hi everyone,

    I did a new installation, but Windows update installer package KB898461 (which is present in the HF folder) and several other updates were missing. So I checked the HFSLIP script and found this on line 482:

    IF EXIST HF\*898461*.exe (
    FOR /F %%I IN ('DIR/B/OD HF\*898461*.exe') DO SET PKGINST=%%I

    I tested this section with this test:

    @ECHO ON
    IF EXIST HF\*898461*.exe (
    FOR /F %%I IN ('DIR/B/OD HF\*898461*.exe') DO SET PKGINST=%%I

    When I run it, I get this output:

    C:\hfslipWxp>SET PKGINST=WindowsXP-KB898461-x86-DEU.exe

    The variable PKGINST is set, but in the next line, the contents of the variable is gone.

    Has anyone a solution for this?

    I'm using Windows XP Pro SP3 German and checked my source with Mimo's File-Checker.

  7. Hi Mim0,

    thanks for that handy script and your work. I ran it after each patch day.

    In the log file I found a wrong text description when it comes for checking User Profile Hive Cleanup (UPHClean-Setup.msi).

    In hfslipfc.cmd line 929 it says:

    ECHO Found unexpected version of Roots Certificates ^(!uphcFile!^)>>!logFile!

    I guess you don't mean rootsupd.exe here.

    Keep up the good work!



  8. I want to shut down a remote computer with the command line tool shutdown.exe.


    shutdown -s -f -m \\<IP-adress or computer name)

    I can shutdown the remote computer, but it won't turn off.

    The message "You can turn off the computer now" appears.

    It's not an ACPI problem because when I regulary shut down the computer (Start-->Shutdown)

    the computer shuts down AND turns off.

    This also happens to computers with Windows 2000. Computer with Windows XP will shut down and turn off.

    I also tried shutdown.exe from Windows XP, but that didn't work either.

    Is there a solution for this or another command line tool?
