  1. I have figured out there are two lines that it writes to the files %variable%.txt So when %variable%=%computername%.txt the resultant file would be Computername.txt.txt The program is writing correctly now, but all that displays is the screen showing what has/has not installed. It appears stalled and I see no progress. Is there a way we can see what is installing as it is being installed?
  2. Wow Mhz.. really well done. I'm running into a few issues. Fist it closes out before I can see what it did, if anything. Can we pause it at the end? It creates two text files ===system info==== which displays the updates installed? KB2764913KB276491613 listed. =====updates.txt====which displays all the updates in the folder1 E:\104 Updates\Win7 x86 Critical\IE11-Windows6.1-KB2909210-x86.msu1 E:\104 Updates\Win7 x86 Critical\IE11-Windows6.1-KB3008923-x86.msu1 E:\104 Updates\Win7 x86 Critical\Windows6.1-KB2479943-x86.msu1 E:\104 Updates\Win7 x86 Critical\Windows6.1-KB2491683-x86.msu45 more.. but it does nothing best I can tell. It appears to error somewhere and quit.I'm providing this to my techs, and we go though about 5-10 computers a day with 2% re-installI named them %computername%done & %computername%todo This way It will be different name with each computer.I'm attempting to test this on the VMs I have running.
  3. I changed the code to echo/push the update name into a text file. I really don't need/want to attempt all updates at one time. It needs to install in 2-3 updates. Can we use this text files at check if the update has already been installed? Currently I stop about 40-50% complete and reboot then start again, but it attempts to install from the very beginning. I tried to edit these scripts, but I'm not able to. any thoughts?
  4. I saw no reply, so hopefully we can get an answer. I have the same question.
  5. Scr1ptW1zard I'm using your little batch script ------------------------------ type nul>.\apps.txt type nul>.\sorted.txt for /f "tokens=2,*" %%a in ('Reg Query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall /S^|find " DisplayName"') do ( echo "%%b"|findstr /B /V /C:"Hotfix"|findstr /B /V /C:"Security Update"|findstr /B /V /C:"Update">>.\apps.txt ) sort .\apps.txt /o .\sorted.txt ------------------------------- And I have a path variable I'm putting everything in that I'm backing up (includes date and customer's name) I'm trying to modify this clippet to include the variable %destination% .. I've tried several times but can't seem to make it work. Any ideas? This utility collects drivers, files from current users, software keys for windows re-install.
  6. I have a rather unique issue occuring. I have run the office detect and repair, and updated it fully. I also disabled any addons it might be running. This is office 2003 SBE What is happening, is every half hour, the calendar will make 6-8 events, that are blank. It will do this all day long, from 8:30 to 5:00 which is close to my work week hour settings. There are no other settings that are active that would do something like this. It gives me about 8-10 reminder that are blank every hour. This is getting quite annoying.
  7. Well I figured out part of the answer. I realized soon afterwards that the network card had a problem. Then when attempting the reinstall, I found that the network card driver wouldn't load. Somewhere in the nlite settings, some option is disabled NOT letting me install the network card. What could it be? Below is my INI, if someone can give me an idea what is wrong. In addition I selected ctrl+alt+del enabled. It doesn't do that, but uses the welcome screen. Even though I selected a default new user (in addition to Administrator) the startup screens ask me for another username!

  8. Here are a few other quetsion regarding nLite on XPwsp2 I'm trying to to full automatic install with domain. Where do I re-enable zip capability Enable the Quicklaunch Has anyone gotten the domain portion working? I set it up with domain settings and the finished install isn't domain ready at all.
  9. Sry, just our xp machines using nlite. Since we were in the unattended (nlite) forum and it appears to be the same interface for xp/2003, I just assumed.
  10. I have a network with a domain (the main reason I wanted to use this program). I enter the domain information, including the default Administrator username/password and after I install, it never has the domain set. It always shows part of workgroups. Am I not setting this correctly? Has anyone gotten this to work correctly?
  11. I searched the forum first. Where in the nlite gui do I enable the built in zip? I looked throughout? Also, can/how do i turn on the quicklaunch by default?
  12. Knowning what we know now, which is better. Slipstream all the patches and hotfixes or using the AutoPatcher, which is updated periodically? I wanted to collect all the patches & updates, but how can I just download the important ones, and know I got everything without adding those I don't need. Is there a collection witout going to ms? Besides I can never get it to just list and let me pick which to download anymore.
  13. In the right hand lower corner the sp2 message and version always shows and I can't make it go away? Why? I've always had sp2 on this disk. What do I do to turn it off?
  14. I already had sp2 slipstreamed into my xp disk. I've made an unattended disk now and am seeing a message about sp2 in the lower rh corner. Never seen it before. I do I eliminate that message and what did I do to provoke it? Already searched this topic to no avail.
