  1. It seems to work with Windows 2000, maybe not XP. At one point I was getting an error because mscorsvw was trying to start, but the installation kept on chugging, and I never narrowed it down to .net1.1sp1 or .net2 because I stopped getting it as I fixed other errors in my unattended install
  2. Is there a problem with using RyanVM's .NET1 and .NET2 silent installers in HFSVCPACK (linked from here), that I should be aware of? They appear to be up to date, at least Windows Update seems to think so. Is it that they are limited to U.S. English? Is it that some progress bars fly by so it's not completely silent? Is it that they are too slow?
  3. Here are my extras: http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pju...8xRQuod-ooFbKdA This is kind of a TODO list for me too, so I tend to keep it sorted by status.
  4. It looks like a leading space accidentally slipped into the name of " SNM.cmd"
  5. Per http://hfslip.org but according to http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=57659 Well, which is it? EDIT: I think I edit everything I post. I would take this to mean that the WMP10 player can of course not be installed on Windows 2000, but I just noticed I am running WMP 6.4, so I wanted to clarify. EDIT 2: Tomcat, I just looked at your dynamic hotfix list and realized I forgot to slipstream MPSetup.exe.
  6. 70111a: Using the new MSIFIRSTLOGON feature, my problem MSI's installed flawlessly! T H A N K Y O U!!
  7. Wow! Trying that right now on the VM EDIT: As I posted in the test release thread, it worked and I am very happy about that
  8. I was originally trying to avoid adding a User environment var to the System environment, but now that you mention it, I'm only dealing with this one variable, and PATH seems to be pretty much always in the System environment , so that concern may be unwarranted. My way didn't work with the reg.exe version (2.0) that was made for Win2K, your way did. Thanks!
  9. I can't find much about this feature on the forum. I have about 3 MSI's in HFSVCPACK_SW, FolderSize.msi gets installed, but PNGGauntlet.msi and SyncToy.msi (renamed from setup.msi -- which DOES install and run on Windows 2000 despite what Microsoft says) do not. I took out all my HFAAO's thinking I may have one that is causing a conflict (which I believe was true at one point -- I had a bad one I made that was trying to reboot and I think it was shutting off the Windows Installer service), but they still didn't install. Should I post a HFSLIP.LOG zip attachment, or is there something different about the MSI's?
  10. I know it's early, but is anyone using this besides me?

  12. I am writing a batch file to add a directory to the Path, reg.exe style. @echo off rem I used DoesNothing value while testing but will use the Path value set Sysenvt=HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment for /f "tokens=3* delims= " %%f in ('reg query "%SysEnvt%" /v DoesNothing') do set Currntpth=%%f reg add "%SysEnvt%" /v DoesNothing /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d "%Currntpth%;%%ProgramFiles%%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools" /f That should be a tab character after delims=. I managed to get it working exactly the way I want, but I was wondering if it could be improved. If I do the embedded req query by itself: reg query "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment" /v Path One of the lines says ! REG.EXE VERSION 3.0 I'm not clear on what happens to this line, is it guaranteed to get ignored by the for /f processing? (Testing in XP)
  13. Thanks, Super-Magician, that fixed my Launchy issue. Ironically I already had two versions of the file from .NET 1.1 and .NET 2.
  14. I think I have a path to solving my problems with batch file addons now. I had pulled out the self-extracting .exe with Universal Extractor, so I still had batchrunner.exe (that links to the batchrunner topic) in the source folder. I ran Maker and I got some error "Unable to find files.7z" although I am not sure of the exact wording because I can't re-create it. I took out batchrunner and I stopped getting the error. I put it back in and still don't get the error. Also if Maker creates the batch-file addon succesfully and it fails during Windows installation with something like "Specified file is not a batch file", it is necessary to make sure batchrunner will run that particular batch file by running it from a cmd window: batchrunner install.cmd Although install.cmd is the default for batchrunner anyway so the filename can be omitted. Apparently running install.cmd directly is not a good enough test.
  15. The answer: it has been discontinued. And yet, tantalizingly, he (?) seems to be working on a new version. http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?...;highlight=nlpc As much as I like NLAOM, NLPC was a nice alternative to have sometimes, it was a little easier to see the contents of the addons.
  16. Thanks for a great program and I have a couple of basic questions (1) Does Add-On Maker see the contents of subdirectories in the folder it reads from or just the one folder? (2) I have created a few addons that work fine, and have started to get a little fancier by setting up .cmd files as installs for programs that need extra stuff like copying files to the program directory and the like. Are there any limitations on what commands can be in these batch files that I should know about? I noticed it put something called Batchrunner.exe in there and I am having a few problems I want to track down.
  17. Added screenshot to first post.
  18. Just want to report that AUTOIT support is working like a champ in 70102b. I have scripts for Wink and SimpleOCR if anyone is interested. T H A N K Y O U!
  19. I second FEBE and CLEO although I haven't used them unattendedly yet. I will now! Thanks for the command line, arcticwolf33!
  20. What happened to the NLPC download links? Never mind, I see previous post
  21. So I can introduce new DLL's in that folder there in addition to FIXing DLL's if I understand you correctly... I might try putting gdiplus.dll there then to see if it makes Launchy happy...
  22. hi daddydave! perhaps you meant Camarade_Tux? Oops, yes
  23. And by putting it in the FIX folder, it is replacing a bad DLL?
  24. daddydave


    What is the significance of msvbvm60.dll that some people put in the FIX folder? I see it has something to do with VB. Is there a bad version in the original source?
