  2. Awsome You just saved me a rather large shrink bill Seriously though, how do you figure this stuff out? I've been trying all sorts of stuff to get this to work (particularly kb947864), adding extra RunOnce entries, rebooting multiple times, removing files, rebooting again etc etc. Thanks again dude
  3. Hi all, First thing before we being, I do not want to use any 3rd party software, as this is for work, so no nLite, HFSLIP, RyanVM stuff please - thanks Have an XP Pro iso slipstreamed with SP3 that I am testing. I am having a problem with KB947864 (Cumulative Update for IE7) and .NET 2.0. Have ensured that I have the latest avilable versions of these updates. All other updates missing from SP3 install fine from svcpack.inf, it is just these two. KB947864 also fails to install when I manually go to Microsoft Update. I had to edit the svcpack.inf file to get it to work in SP3 in the first place. Any help greatly appreciated. My guess is that it is to do with the Major and Minor Version number, plus the build number, as they came from an SP2 SVCPACK.INF file. As I said, I had to add them in otherwise I just couldn't get SP3 to install updates using this method. here is my svcpack.inf file... [Version] ; see: http://www.msfn.org/board/GreenMachine-s-Complete-SVCPACKINF-t109040.html Signature="$Windows NT$" MajorVersion=5 -> This was added MinorVersion=1 -> This was added BuildNumber=2600 -> This was added [SetupData] CatalogSubDir="i386\svcpack" -> This was changed from "i386\hotfixes" [ProductCatalogsToInstall] [SetupHotfixesToRun] "dotNET11.EXE /Q:A /C:""INSTALL /Q""" "dotNET11_SP1.EXE /QN" "dotNET11_KB928366.EXE /QN" "REG DELETE HKLM\Software\Microsoft\PCHealth\ErrorReporting\DW /F" "REG ADD HKLM\SYSTEM\Setup /V SystemSetupInProgress /T REG_DWORD /D 0 /F " "dotNET20.EXE /Q:A /C:""INSTALL /Q""" -> This does not install "dotNET20_SP1.EXE /Q /NORESTART" "dotNET20_KB928365.EXE /QN" "WMP11.EXE /Q:A /R:N /c:""SETUP_WM.EXE /Q /R:N /NoPID /DisallowSystemRestore /P:#e""" "WMP11_KB941569.EXE /Q /U /O /N /Z /ER" "RootsUpd.EXE /Q:A /R:N" "KB890830_V1.40.EXE /Q" "WindowsUpdateAgent30.EXE /WuForce /Quiet /NoRestart" "IE7.EXE /quiet /update-no /nobackup /norestart" "IE7_KB947864.EXE /Q /U /O /N /Z /ER /B:SP2QFE" -> This does not install "QChain.EXE"
  4. ah, was being a dunse, I do apologise. discoverd I was using an unextracted direct download of qchain, sorted now :blushing: :whistle:
  5. hmm looks like it is qchain causing the problem, commented it out of svcpack.inf and IE7 installed fine. perhaps you don't need qchain with SP3?
  6. Attatched is an image of my VMWare displaying the issue, and below that my svcpack.inf file. BTW, this is an SP3 slipstreamed copy of XP - however, I was seeing the same issue with SP2!
  7. I discovered it to be IE7 that is causing the problem. Any ideas? Thanks
  8. Regarding the folder I was asked to extract some data to - it was C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv does that help identify which update it is? Here is my svcpack.inf file... "dotNET11.EXE /Q:A /C:""INSTALL /Q""" "dotNET11_KB928366.exe /QN" "REG DELETE HKLM\Software\Microsoft\PCHealth\ErrorReporting\DW /F" "REG ADD HKLM\SYSTEM\Setup /V SystemSetupInProgress /T REG_DWORD /D 0 /F " "dotNET20.EXE /Q:A /C:""INSTALL /Q""" "dotNET20_SP1.EXE /Q /NORESTART" "MSXML6_KB933579.EXE /Q" "WMP11.EXE /Q:A /R:N /c:""SETUP_WM.EXE /Q /R:N /NoPID /DisallowSystemRestore /P:#e""" "WMP11_KB929399v2_SDK.EXE /Q /U /O /N /Z /ER" "WMP11_KB936782.EXE /Q /U /O /N /Z /ER" "WMP11_KB939683.EXE /Q /U /O /N /Z /ER" "WMP11_KB941569.EXE /Q /U /O /N /Z /ER" "KB933729.EXE /Q /U /O /N /Z /ER /B:SP2QFE" "dotNET30.EXE /Q /NORESTART" "dotNET30_KB932471.EXE /Q /NORESTART" "dotNET30_SP1.EXE /Q /NORESTART" "dotNET35.EXE /Q /NORESTART" "QChain.EXE" Thanks in advance.

  9. That kind of compression is made by nlite using some kind of cabtool. Could you not just use makecab *.* on your svcpack folder to achieve this?
  10. Hullo First off, great work on figuring all this out. I knew there had to be a way to install all HFs/Updates without nLite etc. So thanks Couple of questions though. Can this be used on a normal installation, ie. not unattended? Secondly, when I tried this on a VMWare last night I got a prompt to set the location to extract some temp installer files, my guess it was for one of the later updates in the list, any ideas how to get rid of this? Apologies I cannot be more specific as to which HF it was. Also, could this be used in conjuction with a manual integration of HFs that can be integrated without 3rd party apps? As I assume that would drop the size of the resulting ISO if you manually integrate as much as possible. Ok so that was more than a couple of questions Thanks, Craig
  11. Found the Adobe Reader update preferences file. C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Updater5\AdobeUpdaterPrefs.dat <AutoCheck>1</AutoCheck> <AutoCheckType>0</AutoCheckType> <AutoCheckFreq>1</AutoCheckFreq> <InBackGround>0</InBackground> To disable the Auto updates change the value of <AutoCheck> to 0. As a one off it is not worth doing this, only if you need to apply the settings to more than one user, as you need to actually go to thepreferences page and manually uncheck the "Check for updates" box to add the required lines into the file. I guess you could experiment more to see which lines are added, but this is fine for my needs.
  12. Found the file that effects the Flash Player settings ... C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\Macromedia.com\support\flashplayer\sys\settings.sol Make the changes at the website mentioned in the 1st post website mentioned in the 1st post close down IE, and copy the settings.sol file to somewhere safe, then distribute as needed. Is a user specific file, so copy to all user's of a machine as required.
  13. Cool thanks dude, will check it out Anyone got any ideas for Shockwave and Flash? Am going to test renaming the files mentioned in my first post and see what happens. Thanks
  14. Hi all, Have been searching furiously to try and figure this one out. I am looking to prevent the update popups for Adobe Reader, Flash and Shockwave for our network users. As the users do not have the rights to install the updates, it is pointless (and indeed irritating) them getting the update popups. Ideally, I am looking for a soloution that could be easily rolled out to users without disturbing them. Reader I know with Reader you can prevent it from checking for updates by going to Help >> Check for Updates >> Preferences. Is there a registry tweak that can be applied to do this instead? Or would deleting/renaming C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\AdobeUpdateCheck.exe and AdobeUpdater.dll work? Flash With Flash, I know you can go here http://www.macromedia.com/support/document..._manager05.html to change the updater preferences, but from my testing this does not seem to work. Is there a registry tweak that can be applied to do this? Or would deleting/renaming C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil9e.exe do the trick? Shockwave Same thing for Shockwave you can go here http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/ but again, I have found this not to work. Is there a registry tweak for this? Or would deleting/renaming C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Shockwave 10\SwHelper_xxxxxx.exe do the trick? Thanks in advance, Craig
