  1. Oops! I think your "cleanup.cmd" just ran on my PC cumminbk. Gotta be more careful what I click on. Just curious, but what exactly do you "clean" when you run a clean-up batch? I thought windows setup automatically removes all the temps and garbage when its done.
  2. I'm new to this but am proud of my batch file that runs with no errors. I know there are better one's out there so post'em!. Comodo and Kremlin are Autoit's.

  3. XPsp2 unattended install, mostly nLite. Nonclassic start panel but classic Windows theme. In nLite (latest ver) I choose the tweak to not have the start panel open on first boot but it does anyway. Do I need to add my own reg tweak at GuiRunOnce to make it not open?
  4. After integrating service pack, hotfixes, drivers and making the needed changes with nLite I quit the program and get the file "winnt.sif" from the modified i386 folder. I add this line: [GuiRunOnce] %systemdrive%\Install\start.cmd That makes setup look in the $OEM$\$1\Install folder for my "start.cmd" batch file and that is also where my NOD32 installer is. In the batch file i put these entries: echo. echo Installing NOD32 Antivirus echo Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\NOD32\setup.exe /silentmode echo. echo Installing NOD32 Registry Information regedit /S %systemdrive%\Install\Reg\Esetcommon.reg I add the reg tweak since I don't want the NOD32 splash screen. After adding all the stuff I want to add to GuiRunOnce I copy the ISO image from the original CD to my modified installation folder with ISObuster and burn it with Nero. link to application installation methods i used: http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/32/
  5. Apparently it was the USB polling frequency tweak in nLite that i set to 250MHz/4ms. I have reinstalled XP, since the above post, without the USB tweak and my joystick works fine. I searched and found an app to tweak the USB polling frequency and applied it in safe mode and rebooted. As before, the joystick wouldn't work but it was recognized and the device manager reported no problems. Untweaked it and it works. Might sticky something to that effect if others have USB game device problems and applied the tweak... I suppose the tweak was originally intended for the USB mouse but i'm a hardcore PS2, trackball, GE, $4.99 mouse user after having tried some bug ridden fancier types.
  6. Thanks, I like that nircmd, I think that'll do the trick. Do I just put nircmd.exe in the $$ folder or would you put it in $$\system32 folder? I put my WPA.DBL file in $$\system32 folder but it doesn't work. I still have to call MS to activate since I've activated too many times. I appreciate the script too but I would need to understand how it works and that would take more effort than i'm willing to put into this unattended deal at the moment.
  7. This link is the only download link I can find and its not working. http://www.optimumx.com/download/ Is this tool archived anywhere on the forum? Can someone upload it possibly? If its the same thing as shortcut.exe for windows 95 don't bother as i have that one. Not sure if the windows 95 version is all thats available or not but I couldn't get it to work right. Could be its incompatible or my sytax was wrong but i hate putting too much time into a tool thats not the right one. I want to use on a XPsp2 unattended run from a batch at GuiRunOnce for creating desktop shortcuts to notepad, regedt32, WMP, etc... Anyone familiar with this tool or know where I can find it? Also, could you post a brief example of the syntax you used in your batch to create a shortcut?
  8. I made an unattended CD and installed it. Windows hardware wizard asks for location to install USB hubs.I send it to an untouched version of i386 and it installs hubs. I didn't remove anything related to USB with nLite that i recall. Logitech extreame 3d pro is recognized but no input. A HP USB printer/scanner works fine. I didn't remove anything related to joysticks or USB that i know of.
  9. Just wanted to add that I also get WFP errors. When I run it it is unable to copy files to the dll cache from the original XPsp2 CD. I want WFP to work on my unattended XPsp2. Also my Logitech Extreme 3D pro joystick does not work but is recognized. DirX9.0c, HID service(after copying hidserv.dll into sys32 folder) and USB working fine. I did nothing with nLite that indicated it would affect WFP or game controllers rendering them useless. I think removing some items with nLite have farther-reaching consequences than described in nLite's description of the item. I think nLite is really great tool. I like the way it slipstreams all those updates and drivers. I intend to be more careful about what I remove by researching the item(s) in an attempt to surmise what other effects their removal might have.
  10. Hello, Was going to add some registry settings from my current XPsp2 installation to my unattended XPsp2 CD. I noticed some of the exported .reg files contained paths to C:\ drive. Question is, would there be a drive letter conflict if the drive I'm installing to is not C:\? Should I change any paths in the .reg files to "%systemdrive% before adding to the CD or would that really mess things up? Most of what i want to add like the hkcu explorer advanced key doesn't contain a path but some program registry settings do. I'm sure this question gets asked a lot so if its already been explained somewhere just posting a link would be fine. Thanks
  11. I really appreciate all the trouble you went to to MHz. Thanks. I am surprised that it installed silently on your Vista VM despite the obdc error. I assume that you installed it with these switches in the same order?: start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\Lavasoft_Personal_Firewall_Setup.exe /VERYSILENT /SP- /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART I sent an e-mail to Lavasoft and got this reply: Dear Sir/Madam Unfortunately not. It needs to be registered which cannot be automated. Kind regards, Jona, Lavasoft Support xxxxxxx@bresnan.net skrev: > I'm looking for a firewall to puchase for my company that has an > installer that can be installed silently with no user interaction. I > tried your firewall and was not able to install it silently despite > using the proper switches. Do you have a silent installer for this > firewall? It doesn't need to be registered at the time of installation (10 day trial period) and there is no message box asking to register it. I have changed firewalls to Comodo (not absolute) and am running into the same problem. This installer does ask for registration although it is free. I have downloaded the Autoit for it (see quote) but I'm not sure yet if thats what I want to do.. I think I would like to try making my own Autoit for the Lavasoft firewall even if I decide not to use it. I have no knowledge of scripting, pascal or otherwise, and it seems like it could be a legal grey area to modify an installer for a shareware program. Think I'll look around a bit and see what others are using. Thanks again for the help!
  12. Hmm.... Coulda swore the sign on the door said Unattended Windows Discussion & Support...
  13. Could you please specify which extensions I would need for the Inno compiler to compile the coded portion? For now, I don't plan on changing the coded portion, just want to see if any of the disable features I add to [setup] will disable the wizard and force defaults. There is an encryption module and several third-party tools (none that mention pascal scripting in their descriptions) and also there is Pascal Script 3.0 on another website.
  14. Nope. I just tried it with the "E" included and I still get the install wizard. On the wizard is a "Next" button. All I need is something to push/activate the next button twice and then the finish button, the defaults are fine. I just may have to change firewalls and if I do lavasoft is gonna hear my rant. I'll tell them I'm a big company that was interested in purchasing a volume license but since it won't install silently...
  15. Problem solved. In nLite under "remove components" is an option to remove "Text Services Framework", which is advanced text services. I removed it and tested the CD and no more ctfmon!
  16. He, he.. Maybe I should try it with the "E" before I try building my own installer... I checked and I had misspelled it in the batch file also, so I probably misspelled it at the cmd prompt... Thanks for pointing that out. I'll let ya know if it works.
  17. Hello, I have been trying to install this silently from a cmd file that runs from [GuiRunOnce] on an unattended XPsp2 install CD. This is the command: start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\Lavasoft_Personal_Firewall_Setup.exe /VERYSILENT /SP- /SUPPRESSMSGBOXS /NORESTART It installs, but not silently. A wizard msg box pops up asking if I want to install default configuration or custom? Default is preselected and I only need to press the NEXT button...two more boxes open and the last has a FINISH button. I installed the INNO Setup Unpacker and the Compiler and unpacked it and attempted to compile a new installer but am having difficulties. Under [setup], in the install_script.iss, is this line: DefaultDirName={code:GetOutpostFolder} Inno Setup Compiler wont compile with this there saying it is not a valid directory. If I change it to something else the installer fails with a directory error. This is the original SETUP portion of the install script (it won't compile): [sETUP] AppName=Lavasoft Personal Firewall AppVerName=Lavasoft Personal Firewall 1.0 DefaultDirName={code:GetOutpostFolder} <-------is this Pascal Scripting? OutputBaseFilename=LavasoftFirewallInstall1.0 Compression=lzma WizardImageFile=embedded\WizardImage.bmp WizardSmallImageFile=embedded\WizardSmallImage.bmp This is my revised SETUP that compiled but would not install: [sETUP] AppName=Lavasoft Personal Firewall AppVerName=Lavasoft Personal Firewall 1.0 DefaultDirName={pf}\Lavasoft OutputBaseFilename=LavasoftFirewallInstall1.0 DisableStartupPrompt=yes DisableReadyPage=yes DisableDirPage=yes DisableReadyMemo=yes DisableProgramGroupPage=yes DisableFinishedPage=yes Compression=lzma There must be a way to force a compile or else how could the original setup.exe have been created? Any suggestions/solutions? I'm on shaky ground here knowledgewise so please describe in detail any steps that need to be taken.
  18. I know its "harmless". But it is also absolutely unecessary as I do not have Office installed, or ever plan to install it. It is a resource hog and an irritation. I don't want to have to mess with it on a new installation, I want to prevent it from install/running/starting at all. I did slipstream IE7...Carillo, where would you add that registry tweak on your setup CD?
  19. Hello, I have been refining my unattended XP home edition cd. I use nLite v1.3 to slipstream sp2 and post sp2 updates/hotfixes. I also use it to slipstream my sataraid, chipset, vga, sound card and ethernet drivers. NLite also allows you to customize your settings and services and allows you to remove unneeded items. When nLite is done I add my install folder to add various programs from [GuiRunOnce] in the winnt.sif. and burn it. It works beautifully now except that ctfmon.exe is started and added to the startup in startup programs. I don't use it and don't want it. With nLite I removed all but a few languages and I disabled the launguage button on the task bar in tweaks. I am not installing any Office products or other software that require ctfmon. I don't know what service(s) to disable or program to remove that would stop ctfmom from being installed and started. I'm wary about what I remove and disable.Things I thought were useless turned out to be essential like QoS rsvp service for initializing my LAN connection--once initialized it can be removed and disabled--go figure. I thought that maybe by using the "disable language button" tweak somehow invokes ctfmon to start. If a program being installed is not sure of the language it calls on windows ui to check the language, that should not start ctfmon. Any ideas?
  20. Not needed now. I got sp2 and updates slipstreamed, and tried it on VMware vmplayer. All went well with slipstream stuff and dx9c but .NET framework didn't install and the drivers were wrong for my VM setup. I had to intervene when Setup asked to adjust my display settings ( i specified in the answer file but i had the vm window small so maybe thats why). At the welcome screen I got my first and only error that windows couldn't find c:\install\start.cmd. I had start.cmd in $OEM$ folder so it didn't get transfered to system drive. So I don't know how dx9c got installed since both required the same cmd file... I'll look in the vm's windows install log for clues. Here's the start.cmd file: CLS @echo off title Windows XP SP2 - Unattended Install echo. echo Installing .NET Framework v1.1 echo Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Netframework1.1\netfx.msi /qb echo. echo Installing .NET Framework v1.1 SP1 echo Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Netframework1.1\NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe /Q echo. echo Installing .NET Framework v1.1 SP1 Security Update echo Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Netframework1.1\NDP1.1sp1-KB886903-X86.exe /Q echo. echo Installing .NET Framework v2.0 echo Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Netframework2.0\netfx.msi /qb echo. echo Installing .NET Framework v2.0 Security Update echo Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Netframework2.0\NDP20-KB917283-X86.exe /Q echo. echo Installing .NET Framework v2.0 Security Update echo Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Netframework2.0\NDP20-KB922770-X86.exe /Q echo. echo Installing DirectX 9.0c echo please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\install\DirectX9.0c\DXSETUP.exe echo. If i can't figure it out i'll post a question in the Unattended forum...
  21. Hi, I downloaded XpCreate.exe (free ver) and installed it to C:\xpcreate. The file xpcreate.ini was not in it. I tried extracting to the same folder. I have admin. rights. folder options are set to, show hidden files, show files with known extensions and the other relavent one is good. I clicked on the INIMAN and INITOOL exe files that only made the DOS window flash open/closed. The directions at the XpCreate site mention nothing about "making" an ini file they only talk about editing it in fact it seems to be the most important file in the whole operation. I really don't fancy making my own since the only thing I need to do is slipstream post sp2 updates (already downloaded) to a unattended installation work already in the making. Unless i'm missing something simple here I can just go back to doing it manually and forget about XpCreate.
