  1. I agree. To double check, look in the multi-theme addon archive for a file called cursorb.*

    some questions

    1) In Unattended>Regional>Language Groups I think 2) In Unattended>Network Settings 3) I use Powertoys For Windows XP (TweakUI XP) Desktop>First Icon 4) Not sure what you mean 1) if i choose a none english keyboard, ill still have both the none english and english langauges? 2) ive tried that, but those setting ive made doesnt seem to exist when setup if finished. 3) i want to make is automatically so i wont have to install powertoys. 4) i ment for the quick launch on the task bar on the cd itself ofcourse. For 3, import this regtweak at RunOnceEx [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}] "SortOrderIndex"=dword:00000054 Double check the settings you make in nlite for 2, they should work fine. The others I dunno
  3. Did you try using nlite to integrate the driver? It does everything for you.

    iecore?

    No, the IE core is built into files like shdocvw.dll and shlwapi.dll, etc files in system32. To just get rid of iexplore.exe from your source, then remove the Internet Explorer component, but NOT the IE Core component..
  5. RyanVM's pack is updated monthly a few days after MS releases updates. His site has a list of what updates are in the pack, so all you have to do is check the Microsoft website for what came out in the most recent month, and then look to make sure that that patch is in there.
  6. Please search before posting. If you did, I'm sorry. Download the original installer from Microsoft, or if you are using a non-genuine Windows, search the forums for "IE7 softpedia" without quotes, and one of the posts has a link to it from softpedia. Then using nlite, add the IE7-WindowsXP-x86-enu.exe just like a regular addon pack, and nlite will integrate it.
  7. The nlite license explicitly prohibits that kind of usage. Unless you can provide a valid reason to nuhi, I dont think you could get his permission either. The main reason behind this (as far as anyone knows) is because even though EU's will call Desktop Support, nuhi doesnt want any liability for lost money from a company due to something that may or may not be his program's fault. I could completely understand that. Personally I'd call it like it should be: At your own risk I agree, but for the most part the heads of big companies don't see it that way. Sure they will fire the person responsible for putting the system in place, but then they will go after the person who wrote the system as well.
  8. Save one language neutral update (KB893803 - Windows Installer 3.1), all the updates are in the original language (Brazilian Portuguese). I'm keeping all languages It might be a INTL.inf problem, but how does it change and what causes it to change? I dont honestly know. Is your live messenger installed with windows, or after? Perhaps the version of live messenger doesnt support cyrillic like it should?
  9. Awesome, thank you. I'll modify my regtweaks.reg and see if this works! You da man! So, uh, any clue about the other bit? Jason Not totally sure, but you would have to modify the default registry (the hive*.inf files) I believe.

    Uxtheme patch

    I took my original CD and make a few minor changes as a base to work tests off of (hereafter caled the Unattended CD). Basically setup unattended, removed a few components (languages, keyboards, tablet pc, media center, extra folders in the CD root), enabled the Uxtheme patch, disabled SFC, and integrated the one theme that I use, Royale Remixed. Then I burned it to a CD, and left the source on my hard drive. Then I made a copy of it (so I dont have to copy from the CD each time), added my addons, setup tweaks, and left the rest alone, this one I'll call the fully tweaked CD. When I finished installing the fully tweaked CD in MS VPC, everything worked, except for the theme. It loaded Windows Classic for the windows and taskbar, however the icons, background and cursors applied. When I looked at the display properties, the preview showed the same way that it does when you try to load an unsigned theme with an unpatched uxtheme. So I reloaded the fully tweaked version in nlite and looked at the patches page, and the uxtheme patch option was grayed out (as if the patch was applied). As a quick test, I copied an unpatched uxtheme from my hard drive to the i386 folder of the fully tweaked cd, reloaded nLite and went back to the options page. The uxtheme patch option was able to be changed again. Is it possible that nLite is unpatching the file?
  12. That is true, but what about white box machines you service?
  13. Could you attach a screenshot of one of the errors and also attach your txtsetup.sif? Thanks
  14. Download the original installer from Microsoft, or if you cant validate, go to http://www.soft32.com/Download/Free/Intern...er/4-997-1.html and let the file automatically download. Then just load up the IE7-WindowsXP-x86-enu.exe into nlite just like any other hotfix.
  15. Someone can send you one, but it depends all on what you want to take out. Some people take things out that others want to keep, and some people keep things others want to take out.
  16. Is your x64 CD a Retail (store-bought) CD, or did it come from a PC maker like Dell or HP?
  17. I dont want to sell modified windows. I just want to use nLite to streamline the format/resinstall process when repairing PCs. This will not really help you because you have to use the customer's XP CD in order for their install to be legal. The product key on each CD is unique and tied to their activation code, so if you use one CD (even if you use their CD Key), the product key will be on multiple customer's machines, and windows won't activate.
  18. Double check the language of the Windows you are installing and the language of the patches you are installing. thats the only thing I can think of.

    some questions

    Are these things you want to do after installing, or on the CD itself so they are done while installing?
  20. GUI Mode (PNP) means the driver used by Windows itself, not the driver used by the TEXTMODE part of Setup.. Basically I want to know if I integrate the txtsetup.oem into my CD with nlite, will Windows use the driver, or do I need to load up the inf file again (from a different folder) in order for the controller to be installed in device manager?
  21. That is the problem. When you overwrite an OEM CD (that requires activation, even if done transparently to the user) with a Corporate CD, you are bound to have problems. I would try using nlite on either the original VLK CD or the original Dell CD. nlite can remove anything the Dell CD has on it that you dont want, and can slipstream SP2.
  22. I could be wrong, but I dont think that DHCP would cause all of the errors above. Settings not being saved, and explorer crashing? Maybe but I dunno.. Just my 2 cents since I ran outta ideas after the wireless driver.
  23. The one thing you didnt mention (except in the title, which is why I am asking) is whether you tried this with an actual mapped drive that has a drive letter on your machine, or just a samba share that doesnt have a drive letter..
  24. I agree, and same with 4. If you want a custom logon screen, all you do is delete logonui.ex_ from the i386 dir and then put the one from your system32 folder there (if the one in system32 is the logon screen you want).
  25. Did you remake your ISO after you did this change? MS Virtual PC won't pick it up if you did not remake the ISO after making even this minor change.
