  1. Scientists know that an atom will change its behavior the moment that you look at it, or even begin thinking about it. This is a fact widely known and accepted by the scientific community. They have measured it with machines thousands of times to prove it. But what they haven't yet understood is that the atom they are looking at is part of their own consciousness and that is why it changes just by focusing on it. Once you are identified with being you, you are not only what you eat, you are also what you think and you are connected to what you think of, what you feel and what you experience. T
  2. Ever since I slipstreamed service pack 3 and all the newest security packs into a cdrom, I keep getting a wierd error. When it gets around to formatting the hard drive, I get a message that windows cannot format the hard drive because there is not enough memory. If I format the same harddrive with my original XP cdrom it works without any problems.
  3. Hi... can someone tell me why the search function in these forums doesn't work like a google search function? When I of a search, for example: "out of memory", I get an error from the search engine that tells me that my search is 3 letters or less. Using wildcards for example *out*of*memory* doesn't work either. Anyone that searches for "Microsoft Office" will not find it because the search engine obviously only searches for the first word. Is there some secret trick to doing a search in the forums or is this just a very limited possibility?
  4. I'm amazed nobody answered this... but if you happen to look back at this question, heres an anwer for you: read all the information on autoit and windows post installation wizard. There's a program that finds out the silent switches, but I'm not going to tell you where it is, find it on your own.
  5. Has anyone had this before? I keep getting this annoying error message: "cannot find c:\_wIn_Xp\winnt32.exe" when my installation is almost finished. It is probably from my recovery console entry in the winnt.sif: Command1="%systemroot%\winnt32.exe /cmdcons /unattend" I read what it says in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307654 which makes me wonder what I did wrong. Has anyone had problems with this before? WINNT.SIF
  6. I haven't been in the forums for a while because I've moved half way across the universe... and well unfortunately a few of my harddisks didn't survive the long journey and I have to install everything except my laptop again anyway. Wow. I didn't expect such a great detailed answer. It's got me itching to toy with it and rev it to the max. THANK YOU!
  7. IE8 sux. I tried adding it to my installation routine and once it begins installing IE8 it keeps rebooting. The problem is that it seems that the installation routine actually invokes Internet Explorer 8 which is a complete memory hog and then because its out of memory it is considered a system crash it and will reboot, then it tries to reinstall and will constantly reboot itself because its in a loop. I've dumped IE 8 and checking whether one of the hotfixes might also be one of the problems. Don't worry about your English... it's fine compared to a lot of the people that have posted here.
  8. I just found nlite. Thanks, will try it out.
  9. Vista was only for people that don't really tinker with stuff and accept having zero control over their computer system. It seems the further up the road you get with the windows operating systems, the less control and less configuration possibilities you have. Therefore I hate Vista and would probably like Windows 7 just as little. Anyone that likes writing their own scripts and tweaking their computer to the max will know what I mean.
  10. I've run into this problem before even without an unattended installation. Your problem seems to be the exact same as mine was: XP doesn't accept the name "COMPUTER" for your computer. It also doesn't accept the name "ADMINISTRATOR" for the Administrator. The workaround is simple: Put a zero where the "O" in COMPUTER is and violá it now works. Do the same with the word ADMINISTRATOR if you choose that as a name.
  11. I remember that someone once mentioned that all the windows files are compressed like 1394VDBG.SY_ instead of 1394VDBG.SYS and that windows could be made to install faster if the files weren't compressed. I tried creating an installation DVD with the uncompressed versions and the installation routine is still looking only for the compressed files. Is there a way to get windows to accept the uncompressed versions? Fred Vorck also cut his 2000 installation routine down by throwing out useless files and editing the layout or setup files. Is there someone that has already done that with XP as wel
  12. The PC that I slipstreamed IE8 into Windows XP on only has XP on it. I get that same error message even though I've tried it on three computers and on about 4 different hard drives. IT IS an issue. BTW... it'd be nice if my MSFN profile would let me be able to choose more than one operating system, it seems so stagnant to have to choose only one. HFSLIP.zip
  13. Hi. Your slipstreamer worked fine with office xp. Now I wanted to do the same thing with office 2000 small business edition for a friend to show him how great this tool is and suddenly, all I get is the popup window of the Windows Installer that shows me the switches. What's going on? How do I adjust the code of the program so that it'll work correctly?
  14. Sometimes the properties of a file will need to be changed, for example when someone needs a back-dated file, as is the case with a lot of our customers. They find mistakes in files that have already been logged in their files as being final versions. If you right-click on a file without opening it and choose properties, you'll find data that doesn't get changed even if you change the properties inside Excel.
  15. If you hit CTRL+F and check the extended part of the search function, you may find that the program is searching for a certain format. Sometimes this happens to me when somehow the program starts going haywire and doing things on its own, searching for words in a certain format. I went back to using my old Winword 2003, this was one of the many reasons.
  16. For anyone that might have this problem, this is one of the options that can be found in your menu. Just search around under the extras / options menu.
  17. Hello. I have a html file with a form which I want to be able to use OFFLINE in both Internet Explorer and FireFox... preferably also in Opera, but that's a secondary issue. This form works with FireFox, because Firefox will not only display the dropdown box, but also displays the information to which the selection in the dropdown list is connected. Internet explorer doesn't do this correctly. How do I change it so that this form correctly shows the information in both browsers???? List_of_Application_Switches.htm
  18. If this is compiled with the Install4J installer, it SHOULD have the -q switch, which it doesn't, so the chances are, that it doesn't have a silent switch. You could use AutoIt: Here's the code I used: Opt("WinWaitDelay",100) Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",4) Opt("WinDetectHiddenText",1) Opt("MouseCoordMode",0) Run('softsqueeze_windows_3_5.exe') ; I couldn't use the AutoIt window info identifier, the only thing that that showed was SunAwtFrame all the way through. $Mydir=@ProgramFilesDir&'\SoftSqueeze' ;This is the directory where the program is installed. WinWait("Setup - Softsqueeze 3.5","") If

  20. Excellent @Radix. Thank you. Just did a 30 second crash course on how to use the inno installer maker... and violà... got that working.
  21. Aaaaaaaaaarrgh... During Faber Toys setup, an explorer window pops up. I used the recorder to get the title of the explorer window... which is ("C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\System\Faber Toys","FolderView") So I wanted to get rid of that window... so I tried: WinKill("C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\System\Faber Toys","FolderView") which didn't work I tried: WinClose("C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\System\Faber Toys","FolderView") which didn't work I tried: ProcessKill(Explorer.exe) which effectively killed my desktop,
  22. If you want to get into cross-platforming learn both c# and java and you can't go wrong.
  23. It's obviously a vbs script. I'm using a German version of Word at my office, so I can't show you exactly how to do this, but you have to open the visual basic editor and look around in the file. You should be able to find the script in there.
  24. Just in case you still haven't figured this out. Those little plus signs that you see on the top left of an Excel sheet are what happens when you group together certain rows. Just have a look around in your menu bar and usually somewhere in the middle you'll find a function that groups rows together. It's one also one of the options to make a file "unresizable", although I don't remember exactly how that was done.
