  1. Believe me, it`s not that difficult as it seems. Just read it again and again and play with batch commands, etc. Believe, english language is not my native language and I don`t speak it well but if I understood to guide(s) you should also. Don`t give up when failing once.
  2. no replies? I can`t believe, people please share your methods of NOD32 silent install....
  3. Hi, i have checked all posts (not only here) and I`m confused now how to install silently NOD32 with everything turned on except threat sense... May somebody specify what to export from registry (exactly) or if to use config.xml file attached somewhere above without exporting registry? How to get login and pasword into silent installation then? I have admin version... I would also like to know how to get updates (virus signatures) also to unattended install...(my version of nod is also old so after each reinstall I have to update program components...) Thanks for it in advance
  4. Hi, it`s difficult to explain it completely here. I`m also newbie in this stuff ( 3-4 weeks), pdf is little bit outdated but in general it`s a very good guide for start. Yes, you might be confused as some steps in pdf might seems missing so you have to try yorself these "missing" steps. I suggest you to read it again and try each method again even if you already did it, it will help you to understand better. Don`t skip steps - I think repating already done steps is very important for your future work. Some of steps may seems very easy but repeat them. You must get familiar with it. I prefer RunOnceEx instead of GuiRunOnce as it looks much professional. I don`t understand to a lot of things yet but I was successfull with my UA XPCD which also instals Adobe Reader Lite, Power DVD7 deluxe,Net Framework 1.1 all in, Java Runtime 1508. I`m now going to add NOD32 which, I think, will be more difficult. If you want to, you can start with Office XP, I made a step by step guide because I managed it to work but it was not that easy as I thought when I started.... you don`t need to read all 40 pages, just read the very last post (#595) Office XP shrink guide
  5. Hi, just try google using "creating MST files". I quickly found these links: http://www.itworld.com/App/60/NWW010430119954/ and here is a second link directly to this forum and it took me 5 sec dude :-D http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=18860 which reminds me I should also take a look
  6. Thanks mate, great lite pdf reader with zero issues
  7. Hi muiz, first of all sorry for distorting yr nick i was in work doing a thousands of things at once... My version shows 16 plugins, yours 17. I miss "CLHP"...I don`t know why, anyway. It works perfect now B) Thanks guys! EDIT: I found the same serial in these lines: "UI_PMK"="xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx" "UI_RMK"="xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx" actualy, these must be different....
  8. it depends....I would have really silent UA install...I think...it looks much better without progress bar...isn`t this a purpose of UA install? I can`t see any differnece between boringness either with or without progress bar - it`s the same. So I prefer really silent install just with list of apps which win currently instals. So is there a chance to install your Adobe reader really silently without repacking?
  9. Any idea how to install Shark`s Adobe reader so no progress bar shows during instalation? Which switch to use? Thanks,
  10. Correct, these are in. I`ll explain: When i installed to the real system and registered by entering 4 serials in activation window one by one so 1st was the general serial and then 3 serials for each pack it doesn`t show any upgrades available in "About/Upgrade" option. When using silent install in Virtual machine with a .reg file (edited a bit - my serial and also line with internal packs added) with following lines posted by muez: REGEDIT4 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CyberLink\PowerDVD] "Header"="Deluxe" "HasCDKEY"=dword:00000001 "InstalledPacks"="CPRM Pack, DivX Pack, DTS Pack, DTS 96/24 Pack, DVD-Audio Pack, Express Pack, Interactual Pack, Mobility Pack, MPEG4 AVC Pack" "UI_PMK"="xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx" "UI_RMK"="xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx" "TEST"=dword:00000000 "KeyUpdate"=dword:00000002 "CPNav"=dword:00000002 "MustUpdateKey"=dword:00000002 It works but it shows 2 upgrades in "About/Upgrade" option. 1 is Power DVD standard or so, I can`t remember, and the second is Power DVD Deluxe. I`m confused as main screen where time of movie runs shows Deluxe version and also activation window says that I run Deluxe version and below it says that I have all packs installed... I can install Power DVD on a clean XP again, register as normal and then compare exported reg file with reg file which install silently as I`m almost sure we miss some lines there. Maybe it is "CDkey" line. Also the bottom of reg files is important I think as very last line shows "Free version" (with Dolby) and I think this should dissapear after registration of all packs... Maybe muez will explain after he checks his install...
  11. Hi Shark, how to install your version silently so no progress bar will be visible? Which switch I have to use? It works perfect but this is the only thing I need to solve... Thanks
  12. @brnn: I tested it unpacked. The reason for sfx is smaller size on UA CD... @urie: Thanks, I`m going to test it right now, I`m just wondering if to remove below line from RunOnceEx: REG ADD %KEY%\035 /V 2 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Applications\PWRDVD7\powerDVD7.reg" /f I think yes as sfx contains it... EDIT: I don`t know what I do wrong but it doesn`t work. I put comments to sfx archive but nothing happened. Anyway, I returned to unpacked silent install and I found that even if serials are shown in registry it shows 2 upgrades - standard and deluxe. In activate option it shows both all inner and external packages installed but i think this is just taken from registry but I don`t know if these are really registered. And blue text in right bottom corner also shows Deluxe Version... Is this ok?
  13. REG ADD %KEY%\026 /VE /D "PowerDVD 7" /f REG ADD %KEY%\026 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Applications\pwrdvd7\pwrdvd.exe" /f Of course, you must change the number with your own, you must also change the directory and the name of the .exe file with your own. I hope it will work... Hi! I managed it yesterday to work! I have to change some lines in reg file as I have the "highest" version of Power DVD with all external and internal packs so if I use reg extract with muiz`s lines and my serial it only shows external packs installed and no internal. I have 4 serials for my power DVD and I assume only one goes to registry...the mainone. Code you mentioned above is almost the same + the name of install directory is exactly the same - it works but I can see progress bar when it installs and also it prompts me to confirm if I want to add red file to the registry. This code is also for silent install from folder but not from sfx archive. How should code stands for sfx archive? Here is my code for Power DVD7: REG ADD %KEY%\035 /VE /D "POWER DVD 7 DELUXE" /f REG ADD %KEY%\035 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Applications\PWRDVD7\pwrdvd.exe" /f REG ADD %KEY%\035 /V 2 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Applications\PWRDVD7\powerDVD7.reg" /f So lets summarize my questions: 1) if possible to run silent install from sfx file via RunOnceEx how exatcly it should look like? 2) How do I have arrange really silent install (progress bar not visible) - which switch to use? qb? 3) How silently add PowerDVD7.reg file into registry? Thanks for explanation...
  14. @muiz: thanks, I`ll check. And waht about reg.file? Would it be enough to copy lines you mentioned just with editing serial numbers? @brnn: can you pls tell me which swithech then to use in RunOnceEx?
  15. Oki muiz. I did nothing yet except extracting, installing and registering so I have full Power DVD 7 Deluxe with all packs. My question is if I have to copy and save below to the new "powerDVD7.reg file even if I`m missing some lines and some are different or even it is much longer when I extract my whole reg keys (?) : [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CyberLink\PowerDVD] "Header"="Deluxe" "HasCDKEY"=dword:00000001 "InstalledPacks"="CPRM Pack, DivX Pack, DTS Pack, DTS 96/24 Pack, DVD-Audio Pack, Express Pack, Interactual Pack, Mobility Pack, MPEG4 AVC Pack" "UI_PMK"="xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx" "UI_RMK"="xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx" "TEST"=dword:00000000 "KeyUpdate"=dword:00000002 "CPNav"=dword:00000002 "MustUpdateKey"=dword:00000002 (I`ll of course change xxxx to my serials. This part is ok so nothing to explain: In the folder withe the extracted setup open the "Custom.ini" file and add this : CODEsilent=1 GoogleToolbar=0 You can now remove the google toolbar folder. And make a SFX file with those files , like this : And this is really new to me, I don`t know how to create sfx file. I assumed to use WinRar but where I have to add below lines, can you please explain? ;The comment below contains SFX script commands Setup=Setup.exe Presetup=REGEDIT /S PowerDVD7.reg TempMode Silent=1 Overwrite=1 I never did this before, so I don`t know how to do it... And my last question is if possible to run final sfx archive with RunOnceEx... Your concrete reply will be much appreciated as it will help me so much as an example... Thanks a lot man in advance!
  16. I have checked and I found no upgrades in "About" --> "Upgrade". PM me Sanjay so we can solve this.
  17. I will check this later on as soon as I return home. I remember but I`m not sure - I have still an option purchase when right clicking on the main screen. Considering the way of upgrading method I think it`s just "these options are only showing up erroneously" and we have Deluxe for real. Isn`t this mentioned in reg file where packs are shown? I think yes. Anyway I`ll check at home and I`ll post. Actually what 'muiz' has posted is registry settings from PowerDVD 6. What you really need is: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CyberLink\PowerDVD] "NO_CK"=dword:00002710 "VCPSRealKey"=dword:00002710 "noRunReg"=dword:00000001 "CPNAV"=dword:00000003 "CLH264"=dword:00000001 "HasCDKEY"=dword:00000001 "CDKey"="xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx" "BuildInPacks"="Notebook Pack, MPEG4 AVC Pack" "MustUpdateKey"=dword:00000003 "KeyUpdate"=dword:00000003 "UI_RMK"="xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx" "UI_PMK"="xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx" "InstalledPacks"="Advance Audio Pack, Interactual Pack" Ofcourse, the above is valid if you have a 'Deluxe Serial', 'Advance Audio Pack Serial' & 'Interactual Pack' Serial'. Should I therefore just copy above to my new PowerDVD7reg. file without exporting my reg data from windows registry and then just edit serials? Can you/somebody also please try to reply to my last 2 questions? 2) I`m just going to study creating of sfx files so can you please put some link here to the sfx archives in general? 3) After I sucessfully create sfx file is it possible to run this with RunOnceEx method? Thanks!
  18. Hi Vid0! great, but prior i download/use your file, can you please specify more what issues might occur (I`m mean what dll it doesn`t contain) Simply, are all above bugs fixed? I mean shortcuts etc.... I will use it on very clean UA install with Net.Framework 1.1 as first line in RunOnceEx.... Thanks mate!
  19. Hi muiz, nice but...I`m really new to this so I have some questions, can you pls explain if possible? I installed, registered, also extracted file I downloaded before installation...so ok. But: 1) I exported whole reg key you mentioned: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CyberLink\PowerDVD]. The problem is that I don`t have some lines which you mentioned e.g. "Header"="Deluxe" and "TEST"=dword:00000000 so I simply copied these from yours to mine, i had also some different values:"CPNav"=dword:00000003; "MustUpdateKey"=dword:00000003, yours shows 00000002 so i simply edited mine...is that ok? And is this whole reg file I should save or is it only a part? 2) I`m just going to study creating of sfx files so can you please put some link here to the sfx archives in general? 3) After I sucessfully create sfx file is it possible to run this with RunOnceEx method? That would be enough, thanks a lot in advance....
  20. Hi, [even if below I must say thank to buckeyeXP for this excellent app!!! But more specific tutorial required] as I`m newbie to all this stuff, except Unattended XP and nLite I had to read all 40 pages to find how this should be done sucessfully which, you can imagine, took a lot of time and I found these 40 pages almost very useless for newbies like me and for funs of tweaking XP which browsed to these pages...So I think it`s time to explain how to get shrinked OfficeXP into your unattended XPCD. I did it just few minutes ago so I will try to explain step by step what to do and what not to do. This will be probably not the only one working manual but thisone works and if you gave up or if you`re almost tired with several tests on virtual machine then try this. 1 st of all I use RunOnceEx as it looks more professional B) The important thing is that I use english XPSP2 nlited and also english OfficeXP/PROPLUS version. I think/found it doesn`t matter how much you nlite your XP as mine works with shrink program. Attached is also my Nlite preset just to compare if required (and I can tell you this preset works excellent, stable and fast so you can use it also or use it in full XP and then adjust to your requirements) What will you need: - original Office XP CD - shrink_lang02.exe - Office XP Resource Kit Tool IMPORTANT: You can perform All below steps on whatever machine, with office installed or not, it doesn`t matter. As soon as we step into part where you need clean XP install I`ll prompt you to switch into virtual machine/fresh windows. Now, we can start. I will not explain how to make an administrative point, however I will just slighly comment "how to slipstream SP3 and post SP3 hotfixes" as it`s very easy. You can find "how to" here Slipstreaming Admin install point, so the first thing you HAVE TO DO is to create The Administrative Installation Point. It`s easier than to cook a tea, so hurry up, you will manage it in a few seconds.... (This link works. all links in my tutorial works....) Next step - SLIPSTREAMING SP3 and post SP3 hotfixes into Office XP: (don`t use Office SP2 stuff and it`s post hotfixes as this tutorial is very old...use SP 3 and SP3 post hotfixes) I suggest to make it in the same way as mentioned in that tutorial - install fresh OfficeXP to your PC or to virual machine and go to Office update (I never did this before so I was lost for a while to locate Office update so I opened Word and then via help/Office on the web and I found it there ) Let then Office update to download and install Service Pack 3, restart application as requested by update site and return to update page and check for updates again - you should get ca. 15 updates, I use only word and excel so I noticed following KB`s to download manualy afterwards: (Don`t forget to download administrative versions!!!) 1)OfficeXpSp3-kb832671-fullfile-enu 2)officexp-kb833858-fullfile-enu 3)officexp-KB921567-FullFile-ENU 4)officexp-KB920821-FullFile-ENU 5)officexp-KB914796-FullFile-ENU 6)officexp-KB918420-FullFile-ENU 7)officexp-KB911701-FullFile-ENU 8)officexp-KB905649-FullFile-ENU 9)officexp-kb873379-fullfile-enu your files you download must have the same extension (FullFile-ENU). Create a folder in the root of the C:\ drive and name it "OXPupdates". Place all the downloaded files into the folder you created. Do not download mentioned Extract_Updates.cmd batch file afterwards mentioned in the guildline -it`s oudated; rather open new notepad file, this empty notepad file "save as" "Extract_Updates.cmd" and place this file in the same folder where the updates you downloaded reside in and as soon as done, copy following text to your new Extract_Updates.cmd file: TITLE Office XP SP3 and Post-SP3 Extractor brought to you by www.MSFN.org CLS @echo off ECHO. ECHO Extracting files.... ECHO. OfficeXpSp3-kb832671-fullfile-enu.exe /Q /C /T:C:\OXPupdates officexp-kb833858-fullfile-enu.exe /Q /C /T:C:\OXPupdates officexp-kb921567-FullFile-enu.exe /Q /C /T:C:\OXPupdates officexp-kb920821-FullFile-enu.exe /Q /C /T:C:\OXPupdates officexp-kb914796-FullFile-enu.exe /Q /C /T:C:\OXPupdates officexp-kb918420-FullFile-enu.exe /Q /C /T:C:\OXPupdates officexp-kb911701-FullFile-enu.exe /Q /C /T:C:\OXPupdates officexp-kb905649-FullFile-enu.exe /Q /C /T:C:\OXPupdates officexp-kb873379-fullfile-enu.exe /Q /C /T:C:\OXPupdates ECHO Extraction Completed pause EXIT Important note This cmd file is exactly for KB`s mentioned above. If you decide to download other/more or different KB`s don`t forget to edit cmd file otherwise thisone .cmd will not work to you..hope it`s clear. Browse to just saved Extract_Updates.cmd file and double click on it - will perform all the extraction commands automatically for you. As soon as it finish you can delete your downloaded files, or move them to another location for backup purposes. (No worries if you find more files comparing to those on the screenshots, as I said it`s very old tutorial...I also suggest to back up hotfixes you downloaded as you may need it in the future.) Now open another new Wordpad document and copy/past following text into it: TITLE Office XP Slipstreamer brought to you by www.MSFN.org CLS @echo off ECHO. ECHO Starting the Slipstreaming process of Office XP Updates ECHO. ECHO Slipstreaming Office XP Service Pack 3 ECHO Please wait... msiexec /p C:\OXPupdates\MAINSP3ff.msp /a C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Applications\OfficeXP\proplus.msi SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb msiexec /p C:\OXPupdates\OWC10SP3ff.msp /a C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Applications\OfficeXP\OWC10.MSI SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb ECHO.

ECHO Slipstreaming Completed! pause EXIT Save it as Office XP slipstreamer.cmd lets say on the desktop...as mentioned in the tutorial: All you have to do is execute the batch file from wherever you like and leave it to do the rest! (Sh*t, I spent so much time with shrinking program so I can`t remember this step , but no worries, it`s correct and it will work) Important note 2 This cmd file is exactly for KB`s mentioned above. If you decide to download other or different KB`s you therefore edited above 1st cmd file - Extract_Updates.cmd - so don`t forget to edit this cmd file also otherwise thisone will not work for you..hope it`s clear again... You have now Office XP with SP3 and post SP3 hotfixes slipstreamed! It should have som 620MB...Cool, isn`t it? Remember, your slipstreamed office folder lies in C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Applications\ so the full path to SETUP.EXE is C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Applications\OfficeXP\SETUP.exe ;This is just clarification so you can check if your progress is ok... Now use tutorial to create The Custom Installation Wizard in section 3. It`s very very simple, wizard just creates .MST file in your full slipstreamed Office directory and it will tell to SETUP what to instal and what not to install, nothing else. And you don`t need to edit any batch file which is mentioned at the end, just leave it as is...so as soon as you create your own Unattended.MST file please return here so we can continue. Done? Good. Now burn whole folder OfficeXP which lies in C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Applications\ to either CD-R or CD-RW, this is up to you...but we will need it. Those of you who already added .Net Framework 1.1 to your XPCD and it`s Service Pack 1 and it`s Hotfix KB886903.exe, you may skip this part. If you didn`t already, please follow this Guidline, but use only these parts, don`t create any batch files as we will use RunOnceEx, remember? : Download: .NET FRAMEWORK 1.1 Redistributable Using an extractor such as WinRAR, extract dotnetfx.exe to this folder: \$OEM$\$1\install\NetFramework\ Download: .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 Copy the downloaded file to: \$OEM$\$1\install\NetFramework\ M$ also released hotfix to SP1 of Framework so download it here: KB886903 Copy the downloaded file also to: \$OEM$\$1\install\NetFramework\ It is not necessary or even possible to extract both SP1 and hotfix. Finally, your \$OEM$\$1\install\NetFramework\ must contain following files: - install.exe (96kB) - Inst.Msi.exe (1,62MB) - Inst.MsiW.exe (1,73MB) - NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe (10,2MB) - NDP1.1sp1-KB886903-X86.exe (1,5 MB) - netfx1.cab (13,9MB) - netfx.msi (5,64MB) If it doesn`t, return back and find where you did a mistake. You can also use other ways how to get .NET Framework + SP1 and KB886903 to your XPCD, you can use nLite or any other software etc, I`m just describing my method... We are now going to create RunOnceEx.cmd file so our Framework will be installed prior to running Office shrinker within the [clean] Virtual machine. Important note: I assumed that Office Shrinker will only work with absolutely clean install of XP so I added SP2, hotfixes and Vindows Update v6 to my XP and my RunOnceEx starts with .NetFramework, then it continues with it`s SP1 ann Hotfix. That`s everything. Nothing else. So let`s go. First of all check if you have in your XPCD in C:\XPCD\$OEM$ folder cmdlines.txt. If yes, check it and if it contains following under [Commands] line:"RunOnceEx.cmd". If not, just enter it under [Commands] "RunOnceEx.cmd", if yes just simply close it. If you don`t have cmdlines.txt in mentioned folder, simply open new Notepad document and copy/paste following into: [Commands] "RunOnceEx.cmd" Save this txt file to C:\XPCD\$OEM$ folder. Now browse to C:\XPCD\i386 and open WINNT.SIF file with notepad and find and remove the [GuiRunOnce] entries in it, as RunOnceEx can be used to replace [GuiRunOnce] completely. Although you can use both if needed for some reason, but they will both run at the same time, so use caution. And finally - open new wordpad file and copy following lines into it, then save it as RunOnceEx.cmd in C:\XPCD\$OEM$\ folder: cmdow @ /HID @echo off SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing aplications" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "NET FRAMEWORK 1.1" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Applications\NetFramework\netfx.msi /qn" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /VE /D "NET FRAMEWORK 1.1,SP1" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Applications\NetFramework\NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe /qb" /f REG ADD %KEY%\015 /VE /D "HOTFIX NET FRAMEWORK 1.1 SP1" /f REG ADD %KEY%\015 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Applications\NetFramework\NDP1.1sp1-KB886903-X86.exe /qb" /f REG ADD %KEY%\995 /VE /D "Cleaning and restart" /f REG ADD %KEY%\995 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\cleanup.cmd" /f EXIT We now need to download cmdow.exe which is designed to hide your command line window from the end user. Place cmdow.exe into the \$OEM\$$\System32\ directory, so cmdow is copied over during Setup, and then the tool can be executed from anywhere without a direct path to the \Windows\System32 folder. If you don`t have "$$"and "System32" folders already in your C:XPCD then just simply create it. Last two lines in our RunOnceEx.cmd tells to Setup to search and execute cleanup.cmd, this cmd will arrange that Install folder in your system drive of just freshly installed XP will be deleted. We therefore need to create cleanup.cmd. Open new Notepad document and copy following lines into and then save it as cleanup.cmd in C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\ folder: cmdow @ /HID shutdown.exe -r -f -t 60 -c "Windows XP will now restart in 1 minute..." net user aspnet /delete RD /S /Q "%systemdrive%\install\ EXIT Easy, isn`t it? We are now ready to install our XPCD to Virtual Machine. What we need is (if you already have it just skip this part...): vmware - virtual machine - it has free trial whose period should be more then enough to test our CD/DVDs. I think you`ll need to register to get trial version also, I don`t know, I get it from somewhere else . Don`t download vmware player as you will not need it. ISO Creator for WinXP PRO (You can use any other software you like to create ISO from your C:XPCD, this is up to you. If you have vmware installed just skip this part, if not follow this guide:vmware guide, scroll to the following part:VMWare Workstation Setup Guide. If you are familiar with vmware then simply execute ISO Creator for WinXP PRO or create ISO with your favourite software. Run vmware - you can set capacity of your virtual disk to 2 or 3 GB, more is not necessary. Don`t forget to check "Allocate disk space now" otherwise your virtual PC will not be able to recognize any disk. Edit Virtual Machine as described in the guide: Click the CD-ROM entry on the left, then on the right, click the radio button for "Use ISO image". Browse to your CD image created just before a while. Click OK at the bottom to return the main screen. Back at the main screen, click the GREEN ARROW button at the top to start the Virtual Machine, and continue as if it was a brand new system. It will go through the XP setup, it depends on your unattended setup what SETUP ask you to specify. After final setup`s restart you will see box saying that .Net Framework and it`s SP+hotfix is installing. Then it restarts and we are now ready to use Office shrink! OMG Now go back to your real system and using USB key or external disk or MP3 player copy shrink_lang02.exe to your USB device. Or use another CD-RW - just simply, we must get shrink_lang.exe to virtual machine. Do it like you want. Just one info, my nlited XP doesn`t support sharing so I never used it in virtual machine. I don`t know if it works so to eliminate doubts use USB or CD-R(RW) method. This works for sure... Then take your Office XP previously burned to CD-R or CD-RW and put it into your CD-ROM. Install shrink_lang.exe (I can`t remember if this has to be installed or just executed so I mentioned "Install") in virtual machine. Release cursor so you can leave virtual machine and in vmware edit your virtual machine/virtual XP settings - concretely your CD-ROM settings for virtual machine. Click the CD-ROM entry on the left, then on the right, click the radio button for "Use Physical Drive". Click OK and return to your virtual machine. You will now be able to see your OfficeXP CD in CD-ROM drive.... Create folder "office" in your C hardrive within your virtual machine XP. Run shrink_lang.exe. It will ask you for source office - go ahead, edit offered path in shrink to your CD so it should looks like D:\OfficeXP. Click OK and then shrink ask you for destinatioon folder so edit to C:\office (I can`t remember what it offers exactly as path...) Shrink will then ask you for SETUP.EXE file - give him thatone in CD and finally shrink asks for Unattended.MST file. Also choose thatone in CD...then start shrinking! You will probably get several errors that file is missing, don`t worry, let it work. It will take some 5-10 minutes, I really can`t remember. Finally it says that process finished. Click OK. Browse to your C:\office folder and check it`s content. Mine consist of 1 folder (FILES) and 8 files (3x exe, 1x inf, 1x htm, 2x msi and also MST file. ) Check how big your office is - I have 128MB (I`m not going to compress it more at this stage) Now insert USB device (key, external HDD or so) and copy whole office folder to it. It will take some time - I remember mine`s took 20 minutes but it doesn`t matter. When you`re done, diconnect your USB device, shut down virtual XP and close vmware and return back to real XP. Delete not shrinked full OfficeXP folder from C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Applications\ , once again connect USB device and copy whole folder "office" to C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Applications\ . It will be much faster than in within virtual machine. Remane office folder to OfficeXP. Only one thing needs to be done prior to testing if everything`s ok. We must edit RunOnceEx.cmd file we create in the past to tell the XP SETUP to install our slipstreamed and shrinked OfficeXP. Browse to C:\XPCD\$OEM$\ folder and right click on RunOnceEx.cmd Delete it`s content as its much easier to copy below lines to it than to explain where and waht to add...So delete it`s content and copy below lines to it: cmdow @ /HID @echo off SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing aplications" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "NET FRAMEWORK 1.1" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Applications\NetFramework\netfx.msi /qn" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /VE /D "NET FRAMEWORK 1.1,SP1" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Applications\NetFramework\NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe /qb" /f REG ADD %KEY%\015 /VE /D "FIX FOR NET FRAMEWORK 1.1 SP1" /f REG ADD %KEY%\015 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Applications\NetFramework\NDP1.1sp1-KB886903-X86.exe /qb" /f REG ADD %KEY%\020 /VE /D "MS OFFICE WITH FRONTPAGE" /f REG ADD %KEY%\020 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Applications\OfficeXP\SETUP.exe TRANSFORMS=Unattended.MST /qb" /f REG ADD %KEY%\995 /VE /D "Cleaning and restart" /f REG ADD %KEY%\995 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\cleanup.cmd" /f EXIT Save RunOnceEx.cmd and.... ...that`s it! You can edit names of future installed applications during XP setup in above .cmd file, it`s up to you. You can now test it - you know how to run virtual machine....I also recommend to leave above cmd.file`s numbering/applications install as you will need Framework in the future and it doesn`t matter if it is installed 1st or last. I`m just lazy and I don`t see any reason to change my sequence at the moment...lol P.S. don`t ask me for other language support as I really don`t know. If you have questions regarding my method just PM me. I will also wlcome any suggestion as I`m really new to RunOnceEx and especially switches - I would change /qb switch in Office as I prefer really silent install of Office, thisone shows progress bar, any idea?...anyway... Take care everybody! LAST.ini
  21. qchain again... http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=79935 Hey, it finally solved the issue! Thanks for the link again. The worst thjing is that pdf tutorial based on which I work is outdated Unattended
  22. Hi, tks, that`s it, I`ll try it tonight. Will advise outcome (what else winupdate installs)
  23. Hi, I solved this very easily and fast with /Intgrate method directly to XPCD but there is still some stuff on windows update: -ActiveX -windows update software - maybe something else but I can`t remember as I`m in work at the moment... Is there any chance to get these (download) and integrate into XPCD so after I visit windows update with very fresh system installed it will just check if my system is genuine and then it will only show "Windows Malicious removal tool" (of course if no hotfixes released in between my Integrating and installing; that would be great and comfortable, isn`t it. I`m totally new to addons and slipstreaming but I work with Nlite for 2 years....that`s why I`m asking for somebody it might be such stupid question... Tks
  24. I`m sorry, you`re right, I was almost sleeping when I wrote this thread...It says C\Windows\system32...exactly as it is here in the screenshothttp://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=79935' target="_blank">. To Takeshi: Thanks mate for the link, I`ll test it again without qchain in svcpack then...
  25. Hi everybody, I integrated sucessfully all hotfixes to my Nlited XPCD with /Intgrate method. KB913433 was not possible to integrate so after I integrated all hotfixes I manually edit svcpack.inf where I add this hotfix in between some of hotfixes and then I copied this hotfix into Svcpack folder. During the installation when registering components took place a message pops up asking me for choosing destination folder and it shows WINNT/system32 folder by default so I click ok, then message show something like instalation sucessfull or so (I can`t remember) and after WIN started I get to Win update to check if KB913433 shows there as missing hotfix and it was not. So it was installed also but my question is how to disable that message which asks me to choose destination folder....Did I use wron switch? I used /Q:A /R:N for it. I`m almost sure thisone hotfix causes it as I tested it also without this KB....(I also add qchain with this hotfix - in instalation where no message was I didn`t use qchain) Attached is mine svcpack.inf, pls check where`s the mistake, thanks! svcpack.inf
