  1. I think this problem started lately, but after my unattended Windows installation is done, the time is always wrong. I live in Vancouver where the timezone is GMT -8 PST/PDT. For some odd reason, after the unattended installation is done, the timezone shifts to Kabul Time. I checked my settings in the winnt.sif file and everything appears to be correct. [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword=* EncryptedAdminPassword=NO OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=4 OemSkipWelcome=1 Another strange thing is that I can't synchronize the time with MS's server. I always get an error message as I try to use the internet time tab to update the time. This is very strange behaviour and I'm hoping someone can help me out. Thanks! P.S: I'm using HFSLIP 1.6.2

  3. Frankly speaking I don't understand you either You have Chinese Traditional support installed, the track titles display fine (in Chinese Traditional? in Windows Media Player or in other player?). But Windows Media Player v11 doesn't recognize it - doesn't recognize what? Doesn't recognize the track titles or something else? His settings is more thorough but I found that my simple ones are working too I sincerely apologize for the confusion that I have caused and I appreciate the patience that you have demonstrated so far. What I'm trying to say is that I have indicated in the language group setting to install Traditional Chinese characters. However, Windows Media 11 will not display the titles of my music. It'll appear in boxes and jibberish symbols. However, Windows Explorer is able to display the Traditional Chinese characters.
  4. Which XP updates should now be removed as it's superceded by the newer ones?
  5. It's installed like I told you, but for some odd reasons, Windows Media Player 11 doesn't recognize it. Yet the track titles display fine. I don't understand what's going on. Can you also explain to me why XPman have those extra default user settings in his profile?
  6. The .NET Framework versions (1.1, 2.0, 3.0) aren't upgrades... they're different versions that can all exist on a single PC simultaneously. While you may indeed have .NET Framework 3.0 installed, you likely have .NET Framework 2.0 and .NET Framework 1.1 installed as well. KB933579 - Looks like this one may have been missed... was released August 14, 2007 KB934238 - This only applies to non-English versions of Windows XP KB925720 - This only applies to Windows XP with .NET 3.0 installed. I don't know what the list assumes as far as your .NET versions. - John Thanks for the help man! I can tell you right now that my system is from a fresh installation without .NET Framework 1.0 and 2.0 installed. Should I install those updates? What KB933579 and 925720? Should I install them?
  7. How come XPman have extra settings in his setup? Like systemlocaledefaultuser? Maybe his system have more than one user? Also, does inputlocale determine whether your OS can read certain fonts? For some odd reasons, my computer cannot display Traditional Chinese characters anymore despite enabling Chinese HK support in the LanguageGroup setting of 10. For input locale, I only entered Canadian English and Chinese PRC.
  8. Can someone tell me why Windows Update is telling me to install .Net Framework 2.0 security updates even though I have .NET Framework 3.0 installed. Do I have to install these updates? Also, why is Windows Update now telling me to install the following updates even though this list doesn't list them: Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 6.0 and Microsoft XML Core Services 6.0 Service Pack 1 (KB933579), Update for Windows XP (KB934238), and February 2007 CardSpace Update for Windows XP (KB925720). Thanks!
  9. Do I need to install the update to KB936357 if I have an AMD-based system? Another weird thing is that why won't my brother's Intel platform show this update as a requirement?
  10. @OlegII How does my settings look? I set it up for English, French, and Chinese/East Asian Language. LanguageGroup=1,9,10 SystemLocale=00000804 UserLocale=00001009 InputLocale=1009:00000409,0c0c:00011009,0804:00000804,0409:00000409 Also, I notice some glitches by setting the system locale to Chinese. I notice that on some webpages like Panasonic's Canadian webpage, it display something like this: "5.8燝Hz燚igital cordless燼nswering system爓ith? handsets". Notice the Chinese characters that appear in the sentence?
  11. I know this is the unattended forum and some of the responses might be biased, but I've always been curious in the advantages and disadvantages of both methods. It sounds like imaging might be more convenient since I can tweak the computer to the way that I want it after I finish formatting my computer and then image it. I can just roll back to that tweaked setup as necessary and not worry about reformatting my computer that often. However, it seems like doing an unattended installation gives me more flexibility, but it takes longer. What do you guys think about this?
  12. Do I have to change the userlocale to Chinese simplified as well? If I change the value for system locale to Chinese simplified, then should I remove Chinese simplified option for input locale? I'll post my winnt.sif settings tomorrow for you to see. Also, I don't see the INTL.INF file anywhere. What do you mean by distro? Can you also explain why on Microsoft's website, there are different values for certain languages like Russian? I notice that there are two different values for Russian and yet you only have one set of values entered. "0419:00000419, 0409:00000409"
  13. For Windows XP, I was told that I can't set the system locale to both Chinese and English. As a result, when I install Chinese applications, the fonts appear as jibberish. Is it possible to install both languages for system locale so that I can see the Chinese fonts in Chinese applications?
  14. Why is it that even after I installed this update, KB905474 Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications application (v1.7.0018.1), I still have to install Windows Genuine Advantage when I want to do updates? I thought the whole point of installing this update was to quickly go and get Windows update without installing the utility again? Also, why does Windows Update tell me to install this update, Security Update for Windows XP (KB901190), even though it's not on the list?
  15. Unfortunatelly, no way... But if we are talking about English and Chinese - they can work together in system with Chinese system locale. Right now I only have one entry for system locale and that is set to English. If I change the system locale to Chinese, then things will still display in English? If so, what is the value for the system locale to get Chinese fonts?
  16. I have 33 that I integrate but it's a bit different for everybody. There are a few updates I don't add because they are for apps or hardware I don't use. I don't install the update for Intel CPUs because I use AMD. etc... Also I run x64. x86 would be different as well. The best thing to do is check the list of installed updates on your PC. That should be all you need. I don't use Intel CPUs either, but I have the x86 version of Vista. Are there specific updates for the 64-bit version of Vista? I just don't get why you have 2 more updates than me.
  17. Is that the whole list of updates that I need for Vista? It seems awfully long. Are you sure there are no redundant updates included in that list? http://thehotfixshare.net/board/index.php?...um=50&st=50
  18. Can you set the systemlocale to install more than one language? The thing is that if I set the systemlocale to only 1, then when I install Chinese software, the software itself display incomprehensible characters. However, I don't have any problems reading Chinese characters on the internet.
  19. I don't want to install the Vista SP1 beta. Can you tell me if I'm missing any updates?
  20. Looking at the official list of Vista updates on this page, do you guys have a total of 31 updates in your file folder?
