  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
  15. ah cheeky. just cheked and I can get windows setup to locate the hard drive on a P530 using the P690/P390 symmpi drivers. so no need to inlcude them
  16. Hi all, Am trying to create an unattended CD for the machines we use in the office, these are Dell Precision 530, 670, 690 & 390. This is for the text mode setup portion of the install. I have merged the txtsetup.oem files into one, but the problem that I have is that two of the driver files are named symmpi.sys. One of them is for the LSI Logic Ultra 320 in the P530, and the other is for the Dell SAD 5ir/6ir in the P690 & P390. So obvioulsy I cannot include both sets of files. Can I simply just rename the files of one set of drivers, or is it a bit more complicated than that? Below is my merged txtsetup.oem file to include all three drivers. [Disks] # Dell Precision 530 d1 = "LSI Logic Ultra320 1020/1030 Driver (XP)", \symmpi.tag, \ # Dell Precision 670 d2 = "Adaptec U320 SCSI HostRAID Controller", \hraidsk1 # Dell Precision 390, 690 d3 = "Dell SAS 5x and SAS 6x Controller Driver (Windows XP 32-bit)",\symmpi.tag,\ [Defaults] scsi = SYMMPI_XP32 scsi = ADAPTEC_U320HOSTRAID scsi = DELL_SAS [scsi] SYMMPI_XP32 = "LSI Logic Ultra320 1020/1030 Driver (XP 32-bit)",symmpi ADAPTEC_U320HOSTRAID = "Adaptec U320 SCSI HostRAID Controller" DELL_SAS = "Dell SAS 5x and SAS 6x Controller Driver (Windows XP 32-bit)",symmpi [HardwareIds.scsi.SYMMPI_XP32] id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0621", "symmpi" id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0622", "symmpi" id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0624", "symmpi" id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0626", "symmpi" id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0628", "symmpi" id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0030", "symmpi" [HardwareIds.scsi.ADAPTEC_U320HOSTRAID] id = "PCI\VEN_9005&DEV_809F","a320raid" id = "PCI\VEN_9005&DEV_8090","a320raid" id = "PCI\VEN_9005&DEV_8091","a320raid" id = "PCI\VEN_9005&DEV_8092","a320raid" id = "PCI\VEN_9005&DEV_8093","a320raid" id = "PCI\VEN_9005&DEV_8094","a320raid" id = "PCI\VEN_9005&DEV_809E","a320raid" id = "PCI\VEN_9005&DEV_808F","a320raid" id = "PCI\VEN_9005&DEV_8080","a320raid" id = "PCI\VEN_9005&DEV_8097","a320raid" # Rev B IDs id = "PCI\VEN_9005&DEV_809D","a320raid" id = "PCI\VEN_9005&DEV_809C","a320raid" id = "PCI\VEN_9005&DEV_8095","a320raid" id = "PCI\VEN_9005&DEV_8096","a320raid" [HardwareIds.scsi.DELL_SAS] id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0054&SUBSYS_1F041028", "symmpi" id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0054&SUBSYS_1F061028", "symmpi" id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0054&SUBSYS_1F071028", "symmpi" id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0054&SUBSYS_1F081028", "symmpi" id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0054&SUBSYS_1F091028", "symmpi" id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0058&SUBSYS_1F0E1028", "symmpi" id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0058&SUBSYS_1F0F1028", "symmpi" id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0058&SUBSYS_1F101028", "symmpi" id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0058&SUBSYS_021D1028", "symmpi" [Files.scsi.SYMMPI_XP32] driver = d1,symmpi.sys,SYMMPI inf = d1,symmpi.inf catalog = d1,mpixp32.cat [Files.scsi.ADAPTEC_U320HOSTRAID] driver = d1,a320raid.sys, a320raid inf = d1,a320raid.inf inf = d1,a320mgt.inf catalog = d1,a320raid.cat catalog = d1,a320mgt.cat [Files.scsi.ADAPTEC_U320HOSTRAID_NT4] driver = d2,a320raid.sys, a320raid inf = d2,a320raid.inf [Files.scsi.DELL_SAS] driver = d1,symmpi.sys,SYMMPI inf = d1,symmpi.inf inf = d1,delpseud.inf catalog = d1,mpixp32.cat [Config.SYMMPI] value = Parameters\PnpInterface,5,REG_DWORD,1 [Config.a320raid] value = "", Group, REG_SZ, "SCSI Miniport" value = "", Start, REG_DWORD, 0 value = "", Tag, REG_DWORD, 1 value = "", Type, REG_DWORD, 1
  17. cool thanks, do I add that as a switch in svcpack.inf for the appropriate kb?
  18. Hi all, is there a way to bypass the system restore notification that pops up during an unatteneded install, when WMP10 is installing? I think it is actually a hotfix and not the installer that is causing the issue. Have System Restore turned off in WINNT.SIF. Guess the workaround is to turn System Restore on in WINNT.SIF, then disable it in hkcu/hklm registry imports. Anyone know a better way? Thanks
  19. cool thanks fella, will give it a go If files get overwritten by HFs why add the functionality to integrate into an installation source in the first place? that was rhetorical btw!
  20. Used the batch file to make the .NET1.1 and .NET2.0 silent installers, seems to work ok. Can't remember where I found it though, is somewhere on the forum I think, sorry. Was unable to find the suggested installers, but as I said using the batch file to make them seems to work fine. As I mentioned previously, am not installing WMP11, IE7, Outlook or .NET3.0 at the moment. These are the last pesky updates I cannot seem to integrate using /integrate or svcpack.inf methods... High-Priority: KB890830 KB923689 Optional: KB902344 - Cannot find this one to download. As a slight asside, I keep getting a message box popping up during install (assume it is because of one of the hotfixes) saying about WMP10 installation and system restore being turned off. Anyone know a way around this? Thanks again.
  21. Hi all, do you have to integrate VistaMizer and Hotfixes in a particular order? as I assume that one will overwrite the changes made by the other thanks
  22. hi, nice pack. out of curiosity I tried integrating it into the source for an unattended setup. seems to work fine, however when I get to the login screen I cannot figure out how to login as there are no user names to click. I have not as yet incorporated any usernames in my unattended setup, so only using administrator. Any ideas? am I just being dense thanks
  23. thanks, will look into it I choose not to install WMP11, nor IE7 can't stand either of them, stick with WMP10 and IE6. also, don't install Outlook Express, but leave files there as that causes issues if you install Office Outlook from what I understand. never had a call to install .NET 3.0 as yet, so will just make a not for future reference. thanks again.
  24. hi all, having problems integrating some hotfixes for XP post SP2 x86. Am using the manual /integrate method, as do not want to use any third party apps (eg. nLite). high-priority: kb923689 kb928365 kb936357 kb890830 optional: root certificates update kb902344 and .NET 1.1 shows up even if I use ryanvm's installer package in svcpack.inf, although .NET 2.0 seems to install fine, except one of the updates above is an update for that. is there a list somewhere that explains which hotfixes cannot be integrated or installed using svcpack.inf? do these have to be done trhough runonceex.cmd? thanks in advance
  25. ooo like it, nice! am learning as I go here, so bear with me yes, they are indeed renamed for svcpack.inf method. I chose that (svcpack.inf) method because the company I am looking at this for would prefer that I didn't use any 3rd party progs like nLite to do this. Although, am only using svcpack.inf for those that will not integrate using /integrate. batch files are acceptable though have written a few that to help with the unattended process as well as including edits of some found in the guide here, and one of the slimming down guides also. rely on having a folder structure set, simmilar to the way hfslip works I guess, but doesn't just do slipstreaming, copies all required files to correct %oem$ folders etc.
