Using "mkisofs" instead of standard ISO-engine - the choice isn`t stored and has to set everytime manually.
Edit: Made another run - everything is fine, choice is stored.

Not fixing nLite would be a shame, regardless how many people will continue using XP. If it starts taking too much of my time then I will drop the idea, but for now I am willing to try both.
As XP will arrive at a "final" state in 2014, it would be a good idea to take nLite to a final version, too. THX nuhi for refreshing nLite again!
Huh! Haven't seen g-force around for a while either. Nuhi, have you by chance hacked his account and are posting under both member names?
Nuhi is back, and so am I.
Welcome back, nuhi !!!
BTW, here`s the link to the german nLite forum - still active!
Welcome to MSFN-Forums!
Please read the red advice in the forums header.
Please attach your "winnt.sif" too, but delete your CD-Key in it.
Maybe "DriverPacks.net" is your solution: http://driverpacks.net/driverpacks/windows/xp/x86/lan/10.05.1
I give it the path to the mounted iso, no good...
I always work like that. I mount my XPCD-ISO with UltraISO, then point nLite to that (virtual) CD-ROM.
The cause for failed integration of your themes is your folder-structure.
Every xxx.msstyles needs its own folder (mostly named like the style).
It would be better and easier for you to install XP first as a working OS
and then use nLite to get things work. You`ll be able to get the correct
structure of the folders in XP, e.g. "%systemroot%\Resources\Themes".
I always prefer to use the same Host-OS as the one to modify.
THX @ johnhc for the link - here`s the topic @ "Win-Lite.de": http://www.win-lite.de/wbb/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=4252
I want to install 2 drivers, then dotnet 2.0, then other drivers, any hope for me?
Is there any reason to do so?
With nLite you integrate your drivers, they are available during XP-Setup.
If you want to install them, you need to treat them like an "Unattended-Software-Installation".
Edit: Double-Post here:
Having your Hotfixes integrated will prevent you of spending lots of time AFTER XP-Install.
And you don`t need to be online and do the same thinga again, again, ...again... , ag.......
One-time-in-5-years-XP-Installers: Don`t mind about us, who install 5 times a day....
You didn`t SEARCH for yourself? Don`t Mind, I did:
An ADDON can be be included using "nLite", quite simple.
Fernando missed to point you to the thread where you`ll find the right files:
He`doing an awesome kind of work, promise you.
If you`re unsure about your hardware, give this a try: SIW
OK not quite an emergancy now...
I was able to get a year on .net so far...
Kel, if you need help please contact me, we sure find a solution: firstname.lastname@example.org (Admin of "German-WinLite")
agree with g-force
Think this is a situation where some apps will continue and some will not, I've tried removing the /wait and turns into a nightmatre doing 20-30 apps. even on Seven 64 bit
Agree - I use "setup.cmd" in some of my Silent-WinRAR-SFX (I usually install with this method).
Some Setups won`t install (or stuck) without that "start /wait" because of false or "too fast" execution.
I´m sure it makes a difference in a .cmd.
When I open the IE browser using my "Run" program, everything works fine for browsing.
However, if I go to View>Explorer Bars>History the bar opens with the History tab shown, but there is nothing there except a dropdown called "Search History".
If I run the browser using the normal shortcuts there is a list of weeks and days there which allows me to see the history contents.
That's what I don't understand. Why should running the browser two different ways produce different results?!
It seems to make a diiference if you start "explorer.exe" from "system32" of using your program.
Maybe your program "Run" adds some parameters, I don`t know.
Search for "explorer.exe" on your system (there are different "shortcuts") and execute them by using your "Run".
I think you bought a key (maybe few years ago), but you got to know what key you paid for.
If you know there is no problem to lean a genuine XPCD that matches your key.
A useful keyword for your search is PID.
I´M not sure about that, cause this is a HKCU-Setting:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
I replaced my current setting with "YourDrive\YourFolder".
I´m on a german system, don`t know if I´m right about "My Documents = Eigene Dateien".
You`ve got to modify the "sysprep.inf" manually and delete the asterik "Computername = * ".
It´s explained here: http://capitalhead.com/articles/force-sysprep-to-prompt-for-a-computer-name-during-mini-setup-in-windows-xp.aspx
Maybe I miss the point due to my poor english. That`s what I understand (written in a .cmd):
1.) start /wait MySetup.exe ---> executes and waits until end of "MySetup.exe", then executes the next line
2.) start MySetup.exe ---> executes "MySetup.exe", doesn`t wait and executes immediatly next line of the .cmd
3.) no switch at all ---> same as 1.), because "wait" is set by default
Please correct me if I`m wrong.
German-Winlite.de would be proud to host the german translation.
(If there`s a german backup out there it would be easier...)
A little "Push". I`m still looking for a backup of the german translation.
Glad to hear your good news.
I`ve done this procedure by Try & Error a few years ago - without rabbit`s help...
If I don`t use Start /wait im my CMD, all lines are executed without waiting.
So it makes a difference for me. There is no waiting enabled by default in a CMD.
I usually use "start /wait" in a .cmd - and it works.
German "leftovers" found a new home
After overtaking the last domain by stupid and some headaches we found a new "german" home; http://windows-unattended.org
We are known as german-nlite.de, win-lite.de and we hope, you will follow us to our new forum.
THX to nuhi for nlite and NTLite!
