  1. How do you know if the video you have needs this?
  2. Instantbird is a new multi-protocol Instant Messaging client. Using it, you can connect to all your different IM accounts. It is based on the Gecko Engine so I think that is really cool. Test it out and say what you think. http://www.instantbird.com/
  3. Has anyone ever tried the Lunascape Browser? I just found it. I think it is really cool that it supports both the trident engine and the Gecko engine.
  4. What does everyone think is the best internet browser that uses the Gecko Engine besides Firefox.
  5. Nope!!!!!!!!!!!! Not in this case. I wish it was that easy. I started off doing it to current user only, then added default user, then added local machine. I really don't care why it happened that way, all I know is I'm happy it is behaving for me and Martin had a extremely high patience level to help me.
  6. Thx Martin for all of yer help. I just tried a silly idea of mine and it actually worked. I added a couple of lines to my SHOW_OPERATING_FILES.REG. The bold part is the new stuff. Adding that part to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE did the trick. I've been reading and learning as much as I can about the registry the last couple of days. So what I wanted to do has finally been accomplished. Thx a lot Martin I could have never of accomplished this without yer help.
  7. The HKU\.DEFAULT is for the Local System account--when no users are logged on: http://blogs.msdn.com/oldnewthing/archive/...02/1786493.aspxSee also: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/305709 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/291586 Thx for the links.
  8. It's "supposed" to work that way, but it doesn't. The default hive loaded when you create a new user is located in: C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\NTUSER.DAT NTUSER.DAT is a registry hive and can be opened with regedit if you need to make changes, but its tricky to do: Open Registry Editor. In the registry tree (on the left), click either the HKEY_USERS or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE keys. On the File menu, click Load Hive. In Look in, click the drive, folder, or network computer and folder that contains the hive you want to load. Click Open. In Key Name, type the name that you want to assign to the hive (I use TEMPLATE), and then click OK. What kind of program do you need if you wnt to view the NTUSER.DAT?
  9. Can someone please explain what the HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT is for. My interpretation from everything that I read is any time you create a new account on your computer the HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT will be copied over to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER. Is that correct? If it is, then my computer is not behaving, I have created 3 accounts and my hive from HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT is not being copied over to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive.
  10. Ohhh. Catching on slowly. Thx for explaining.
  11. I have no idea what the Hivedef.inf is. Could you please explain it to me.
  12. I forgot the Bloody cmdow.exe. I know for a 100% fact my SHOW_OPERATING_FILES.REG is being applied to my computer. For some reason the changes are not showing up in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER, but they are showing up in the HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT. According to this: http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/17/ the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive is imported over to the HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT Hive. So I don't understand why my tweaks would show up in the HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT, and not in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive. Another thing that is really weird to me is every time I create a new account the HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT hive is being copied over to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive. I have created 3 accounts and the info isn't being copied over.
  13. The article dosen't say that... It says that if you import current user keys from cmdlines.txt, then they will be applied to the default user hive and hence, all new created users will inherent those keys... At T-12(cmdlines.txt) then the built-in administrator account is the only account available. Any ideas why its not working then? That's the only thing I can think of. I can't think of anything why it isn't working.
  14. The 7-Zip and WinRaR installed good with the RunOnceEx.cmd. Unfortunately my SHOW_OPERATING_FILES.REG is not working for me. Does it have something to do with it being the admin account? I really don't know what else it could be.
  15. Can someone please explain this in more depth. http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/17/ Why can't you use the cmdlines.txt to import HKCU tweaks into the built-in Administrator account? Where is the built-in Administrator account during this time? Why does it really matter if you use the built-in Administrator account? If you don't have a good Firewall and AV you'll still get a virus, trojan, or spyware no matter if your using the built-in Administrator account or not.
  16. When does everyone usually install there reg tweaks. Out of cmdlines.txt, RunOnceEx.cmd, and [GuiRunOnce] when does everyone have the most success?
  17. Can someone tell me what %~dpn0 means? I've seen it in a couple of cmd files.
  18. Ok I got a couple of questions though. Don't I need to have cmdow on the disc somewhere? So where would be the best place to add cmdow? Could you please also explain the parts of the RunOnceEx.cmd. I understand most of it. The %~dpn0 part is the part I'm most confused about. I know the %key%\001 /v makes folders inside RunOnceEx. I know 1 /d makes a REG_SZ called one. The rest is the directory and the force overwrite switch. I still can't figure out the %~dpn0 part.
  19. The italic part adds the installer of my RunOnceEx application to the RunOnce key. If you forget this, it will not work! Added registry entry's: TEXT: The text above the list of applications. Default: Please wait while Windows installs... FONT: The text font. PNG: The installation icon. Value can be a path to a PNG image (e.g. %systemdrive%\installer.png, best use a size between 32x32 and 48x48), or one of the following constants (italic constants are added in version 1.2): PNG_arrow: The arrow icon. Value can be a path to a PNG image (best use a size of 16x16 or less) or one of the following constants: PNG_success: The success icon. Value can be a path to a PNG image (best use a size of 16x16 or less) or one of the following constants: Download list of constants as Word Document I HOPE YOU LIKE IT! Could you please fix your links? I would like to test it out.
  20. I saw it say it was running, but for some really frustrating reason it didn't install.
  21. I wish it was that easy. I tried it with only ShowSuperHidded as 1 and it did not work.
  22. Whats the order of the HKLM, HKCU, HKU, and HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT in Unattended Installation?
  23. Good or bad ??? It hasen't got anything to do with your issue, if that's what you mean... I don't know what the problem is, i'm affraid... I was wondering if I had my cmdline.txt setup right [Commands] "OemPreinstall.cmd" "REGEDIT /S SHOW_OPERATING_FILES.REG" "COMPRESSION_STUFF.CMD" "REGEDT32.EXE /S SHOW_OPERATING_FILES.REG" "SHOW_OPERATING_FILES.cmd" I was also wondering if I had my COMPRESSION_STUFF.CMD setup right for a SFX archive? You guys were saying something about needing switches. pause "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\COOL_STUFF\7-Zip-v4.42.exe" "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\COOL_STUFF\WinRAR-v3.71.exe" pause I also tried these 2 methods. @Start "" /wait %SYSTEMDRIVE%\COOL_STUFF\7-Zip-v4.42.exe @Start "" /wait %SYSTEMDRIVE%\COOL_STUFF\WinRAR-v3.71.exe @Echo off Pushd %SystemDrive%\Cool_Stuff 2>%SystemDrive%\C_S.log||Goto :Eof For %%# In (7-Zip-v4.42 WinRAR-v3.71) Do (If Exist %%#.exe ( Start "" /wait %%#.exe) Else (>>%SystemDrive%\C_S.log Echo:%%# did not exist)) Popd It made C_S.log, but there was nothing in the log.
  24. I gonna be royally p***ed if yer right. I'm pretty sure your right. This worked when I applied it on my computer, so I don't understand why it didn't work during my unattended install. What you said does make a lot of since though.
