  2. I've got the same problem today by integrating fresh updates into my XP SP3 installation (HFSLIP 1.7.9)

    And now I have no idea what update conflicts with MSI :(

    Manually reinstalled WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe and nothing.

    When trying to install something with .msi extension I'm getting 'The Windows Installer service could not be accessed.'...

    Please help.

    P.S. WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe is in HF folder for the HFSLIP.

  3. Moved from always buggy WinDVD and PowerDVD (same s***, sorry) to ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre 3 and now looking for silent install switches...

    Tried setup.exe /s/v/qn but it finished with ResultCode=-3 in setup.log. It seems I need to enter serial number somewhere...

    Also there is an update for it - totalmediatheatre_3.0.1.120_3.0.1.160_update_all.exe which doesn't support even /s/v/qn

    Please help.

  4. I have Vista SP1 DVD with x86 and x64 versions in one.

    And I want to integrate both x64 and x86 language packs in it but for vLite there is no difference in language pack platforms so trying to integrate x64 MUI after x86 raises an error that this MUI is already integrated.

    Is there a way to integrate both of them?

    I have x64 MUI's integrated and when installing x86 version with non-english version (from x64) it gives an error after copying files: unable to install windows in selected language.

  5. Hello there!

    The new version is available - 1.4

    What's new:

    [+] Now it's possible to create a different radio buttons groups (Radio=2, Radio=8)

    [+] Program info URL icon will be shown for each program if "URL=" is set

    [+] Status bar shows total available programs to install (includes hidden programs too)

    [+] Now it's possible to set alternate marsinst.log file location from ini file (LogPath)

    [+] Windows temp directory shortcut - %TEMP%

    [*] High CPU usage while installing an application fixed

    [*] Some other bug fixes and improvements

  6. You can do everything with NSIS too. Just try to study. I have more than 30 installations made in it. Don't know about Inno, but don't like it.

    What about files that MSI lefts...I mean not those application files I mean MSI files itself...they are everywhere...I hate that unnecessary chaos...

    Microsoft always create a stupid soft...which left a lot behind (and like norton, symantec, adobe etc.) I'm programmer and I know - all this is a garbage.

  7. Another thing. I deleted all prerequisites from WinDVD and now it gives an error:


    W:\Redistributable\SetupPrerequisties\PRQ\DirectX Feb2007 Runtime.prq.

    What would you like to do?

    How to prevent it from checking prerequisites?

    I don't really think it needs to install DirectX because I have SP3 integrated and dxdiag shows all DirectX files dated 4/14/2008.

  8. Ok, thanks a lot. Registration file works. Silent installation I'm gonna check.

    Only one thing left - annoying registration window... There was some registry key for version 7/8 which made WinDVD registered (on corel.com) is there a new one?

    P.S. Will WD09.dta work on another PC (if I change my PC configuration)?

  9. I can't even install KB905474 (Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications)

    WGANOT~1.EXE cannot be integrated and raises an error when trying just install it under SP3:

    Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of this system

    is newer than the update you are applying.

    There is no need to install this update.

    I think there should be a special SP3 version of Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications standalone because I just downloaded version 1.7.0018.7 from HERE.

    Also I made my MSDownloads.exe with all files mentioned here and it installs. But updater (IE7) still want to install ActiveX plugins and WGA.

    And my DataStore.edb is 8mb is it normal? I deleted it and run update and it grew to 8mb again :(

  10. There is a topic on how to install WinDVD 8 but it doesn't work for version 9.

    There are instructions on how to modify default.ini file but here is the content of it for full WinDVD 9 Plus (and Plus Blu-ray):



    Also I tried unpack WinDVD9.exe and run setup.exe /S /v/qn - it won't install and creates setup.log with:


    Please help. Also is there a way to register it silently?
