  1. I made an AutoIt script for silent install of StartIsBack v2.0.2 with activation (in case someone need it). Link.
  2. Start Is Back 2.1.1 1. If your Windows 8 operating system is other version than English, this script will not work for you. In this case, use AutoIt 3 Info utility to find your StartIsBack windows titles and text located inside those windows and change this script to fit your needs. 2. Tweaks section contain some registry settings explained. If you don't want them, delete them and put your own (use RegShot, SysTracer or other similar programs to capture registry changes). 3. Copy your License Key below on $LicenseKey variable, inside quotes. If the License Key is not provided, activation will be skipped. If you provide a License Key, but the internet connection is closed during activation, the AutoIt script or the compiled AutoIt script will close the pop-up window that contain the error message. 4. Download the start button images containing Windows logo from here (due to Microsoft request, all start button images containing Windows logo were removed from installer): http://tihiy.net/files/WinOrbs.zip 5. Unzip the archive downloaded in the previous step to "WinOrbs" folder. 6. Installer, WinOrbs folder and the compiled AutoIt file must be in the same folder. StartIsBack_2.1.1.au3
  3. Hello, After I've enabled Hyper-v in Windows 8 Enterprise 64 bit via "Control Panel > Programs > Turn Windows Features on or off", I can't create 64 bit virtual machines using VirtualBox. Disabling Hyper-v fixed the problem. CPU is Intel Core I7-3770k and virtualization is enabled in bios. Anyone knows a workaround to have Hyper-v and 64 bit virtualization ? Thanks.
  4. @jinkazama Your samples from the post #8 will not work, because you have installed a 64 bit version of Office 2007 under a 64 bit version of Windows. In this case change 16426 with 16422 in create_shortcut_x64.inf and make sure that you always install Office 2007 x64 or laterunder a 64 bit OS. @Geej Your script will not work with Office 2007 x64 or later under 64 bit Windows due to the same reason explained above. Edit: jinkazama, if you want to use a simpler method (a single AutoIt script for all install process and shortcut creation), I can post one.
  5. You should use inf method or AutoIt, because these methods use dir id's (inf) or macros for folders (AutoIt), for example @DesktopCommonDir instead of C:\Users\Public\Desktop AutoIt method (on the top of .au3 file, you can add command to install Office 2003 silently): FileCreateShortcut(@ProgramFilesDir & "\Microsoft Office\Office11\WINWORD.EXE", @DesktopCommonDir & "\Word 2003.lnk", @ProgramFilesDir & "\Microsoft Office\Office11", "", "Create beautiful documents, easily work with others, and enjoy the read.") FileCreateShortcut(@ProgramFilesDir & "\Microsoft Office\Office11\EXCEL.EXE", @DesktopCommonDir & "\Excel 2003.lnk", @ProgramFilesDir & "\Microsoft Office\Office11", "", "Easily discover, visualize, and share insights from your data.") Inf method: Use 3 files: install.cmd, create_shortcut_x86.inf and create_shortcut_x64.inf install.cmd content (on the top of install.cmd file, you can add command to install Office 2003 silently): @ECHO OFF :: Check the operating system type (32 bit or 64 bit) IF NOT EXIST %SystemRoot%\SysWOW64 GOTO X86 IF EXIST %SystemRoot%\SysWOW64 GOTO X64 :: 32 bit :X86 ::Create All Users Desktop icons for Word 2003 and Excel 2003 on 32 bit operating systems start rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection create_shortcut_x86.inf,,1 :: 64 bit :X64 ::Create All Users Desktop icons for Word 2003 and Excel 2003 on 64 bit operating systems start rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection create_shortcut_x64.inf,,1 :END EXIT create_shortcut_x86.inf content: [Version] Signature=$Windows NT$ [DefaultInstall] ProfileItems=1IconItemAdd ProfileItems=2IconItemAdd [1IconItemAdd] ; All Users Desktop icon for MSO Word 2003 Name = "Word 2003", 0x0000008, 16409 CmdLine = 16422,"Microsoft Office\Office11","WINWORD.EXE" WorkingDir = 16422,"Microsoft Office\Office11" InfoTip = "Create beautiful documents, easily work with others, and enjoy the read."

  6. Distribution size (ISO) is 4.61 GB (1.6 GB drivers setup and I don't want to inject inf, cat and sys into install.wim), so I can't install from DVD. The solution is to disconnect the other two hard drives during Windows installation. At least installation is fast: 8 min until metro ui. Thanks Jaclaz for links!
  7. I've formatted the drive as NTFS with 4096 unit size, then I used Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool to copy the ISO content. Then booted from flash drive and start installation.
  8. I've made a USB 3.0 flash drive bootable and installed Windows 8 x64, but boot files were created into different hard drives (I have 3 identical hard drives, each hard drive containing one active primary partition). I've used Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool to prepare the flash drive. Installing the same distribution from DVD was fine, boot folder and others were all created correctly in C partition.
  9. Silent installation for v1.2 works with /silent or /elevated /silent, but, in both cases I've got the purple screen after log on and explorer.exe process it's not working , so I need to start task manager first. I wonder if it's possible to add another switch to silent installation like /nologoff or /norestart, because it's usefull when we install drivers or programs at first boot with setupcomplete.cmd. Another switch to insert the serial number will be great, so we can click only the Activate button after restart, or application can attempt itself to activate when the machine is online. Thanks!
  10. Hello, I've got this error with v2.00 RC1.02 in Windows 8. I use Start is Back.
  11. Or use Compuware DriverStudio 3.2.
  12. I copied sxs folders from both Windows 8 discs 32 bit and 64 bit. So, I have sxs_x64 and sxs_x86 folders (I renamed them) inside a folder called sources. On the same tree level with sources folder I've added the file Install.cmd. Install.cmd content: @ECHO OFF :: Check the operating system type (32 bit or 64 bit) IF NOT EXIST %SystemRoot%\SysWOW64 GOTO X86 IF EXIST %SystemRoot%\SysWOW64 GOTO X64 :: 32 bit :X86 :: Install and disable restart dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /all /NoRestart /Source:"%~dp0sources\sxs_x86" /LimitAccess :: 64 bit :X64 :: Install and disable restart dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /all /NoRestart /Source:"%~dp0sources\sxs_x64" /LimitAccess :: Exit the script :END EXIT Check the installation integrity with this tool: http://blogs.msdn.co...es/8999004.aspx
  13. Reproduced, and I've noticed this but didn't realize what reproduced it. I still didn't. Any more specific settings or video demo? Probably the start menu orb is detached by the taskbar as I saw in his post (#678 from page 34). Edit: Also, can you test if the bug from post #689 can be reproduced on your machine? Thanks!
  14. If the option "Auto-hide the taskbar" is checked, I can't unhide it by moving the mouse cursor in the taskbar area where the start orb is located. Moving the cursor on the right of that area will popup the taskbar.
  15. I've just bought the license for 5 PC's and activated. All had worked fine. Cheers!
  16. Mediafire link from the first post is dead. An alternative code for Func _ToggleTaskbarLock(): #Include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Local $sLockTaskbar = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "TaskbarSizeMove") $hTrayWnd = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]") If _WinAPI_GetClassName($hTrayWnd) <> "Shell_TrayWnd" Then Exit ; Below, use $sLockTaskbar = 0 to unlock the taskbar or $sLockTaskbar = 1 to lock the taskbar If $sLockTaskbar = 0 Then _SendMessage($hTrayWnd, $WM_COMMAND, 424, 0)
  17. Thanks, but not working. It seems the only way to turn off the system restore in Windows 7 is by using registry tweaks.
  18. Is possible to disable the system restore on all drives in Windows 7 using vb scripting ? The only solution I have right now is a reg file obtained by using RegShot, but I guess it's not work on other computers: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SPP\Clients] "{09F7EDC5-294E-4180-AF6A-FB0E6A0E9513}"=- "{3E7F07C9-6BC3-11DC-A033-0019B92BB8B1}"=- [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore] "RPSessionInterval"=dword:00000000
  19. argh, 1024registrationinfo.xml seems to be unique on each system ... I already know this. I use AutoIt to deal with the Registration screen. ; Disable Welcome window which appear on the first Nero Burning ROM start RegWrite("HKCU\Software\Nero\Nero 11\Nero Welcome\Nero Burning ROM", "NeroNeverShowGSA", "REG_DWORD", 1) ; Start checking AdlibRegister('_Adlib') ; Run Nero Burning ROM Run($InstallLocation & "\Nero 11\Nero Burning ROM\nero.exe") WinWait("New Compilation", "Multisession") ControlClick("New Compilation", "Multisession", "Button48") WinClose("Nero Burning ROM", "Menu Bar") ; Stop checking AdlibUnRegister() Func _Adlib() ; Deal with the welcome screen from the first Nero start (that one which have this button text and is ; checked by default: "Yes, keep me up to date and send me Nero News with the latest information about ; Nero products and services, as well as updates, useful tips, great discounts, and special offers!") If WinExists("Welcome to Nero", "Welcome and thanks for choosing Nero!") Then ControlCommand("Welcome to Nero", "Installation Complete", "Button4", "UnCheck", "") Sleep(500) ControlClick("Welcome to Nero", "Welcome and thanks for choosing Nero!", "Button2") EndIf EndFunc
  20. Run the downloaded package and after extraction is completed cancel installation and use the extracted files and folders for unattended installation (control center and other stuff can be deleted). Windows XP: setup.exe /k Windows Vista or later: setup.exe -INSTALL If some windows will pop-up during installation: - Hardware Installation (appear in Windows XP x86 % x64) - Found New Hardware Wizard (appear in Windows XP x64 only) - Windows Security (appear in Windows Vista x86 & x64 or later) you will need an AutoIt script.
