  1. http://www.rarhost.com/index.php here's the url I can't wait to try it out
  2. Hello I found out that my nlited XP still keeps the english keyboard layout even if I removed all layouts but the italian one. Any idea if it can be removed from nlite or if there's a windows command to remove it after XP has installed? Does somebody here knows if there's a way to disable extended text services? (This has nothing to do with regional settings) Does somebody knows if it's normal that HFNETChk (v1.x) gives me the following missing patches: Patch NOT Installed MS04-041 Q885836 Warning MS05-049 Q900725 Patch NOT Installed MPSB-0507 Q913433 even if I integrated the first 2° and the 3° one is installed with the postinstall Thanks in advance.
  3. Was that MCE 2005 or 2004? As long as I know MCE 2005 doesn't install well if the framework 1.0 is removed from the DVD components folder (there's a MCE component called SONIC BURNING ENGINE that gives an error during the setup if the framework is not present).
  4. My sister has a crappy celeron laptop where XPize can take up to half an hour (!) for every silent install. The only way to see if it's still running is checking the task manager this is why I made this suggestion. But if it's hard to implement then nevermind.
  5. No I meant something more direct: now you're forced to show the interface because 0 value doesn't work for the timer. Opening the progress dialog without the wpi interface being shown would be great.
  6. As some of you may know some windows hotfix can be installed with the /passive switch that pratically shows the install progress dialog but doesn't allow user interaction. Wouldn't that be useful for XPize too? The installation often takes a lot of time on slow PCs this way somebody could see what is XPize doing in the meanwhile.
  7. What about a command-line parameter to have WPI start installing applications of a certain installation profile? Something like WPI.CMD /Profile=ProfileName
  8. Can't a normal 2003 become a R2 if you install the MSI in the 2° 2003 R2 cd?
  9. No live messenger's remote assistance doesn't work with windows messenger removed. I don't know if removing it and replacing it with messenger 5.1 will still keep remote assistance features that's why I asked.
  10. I wanted to remove windows messenger from nlite and reinstall it with the updated version from MS website (it's 5.1 or something like that). Does somebody here knows if: 1) windows update will propose me the messenger hotfix even with windows messenger not present 2) remote assistance will still work after installing windows messenger 5.1 after the original windows messenger has been removed with nlite Thanks in advance.
  11. It checks for external applications, for example office and windows desktop search. **** I wish there was a way to fix this mess I don't want to update office by hand every time.
  12. it worked for me no more high cpu/mem usage at startup Yes but you lose office updates and as you may know there are a lot of critical exploits coming out for office files. If you use outlook 2003 as a email client you can't keep automatic updates turned off.
  13. I can't leave automatic updates turned off and I also need microsoft update because it updates automatically office (and there are worms spreading through .ppt and .doc files).
  14. After the check the cpu usage goes back to normal but the problem is that the check even on fast systems last for at least 3-4 minutes, on a celeron 1000 I have it lasts for 30 minutes!! While it's checking new applications can't be launched and the system is very slow. Everytime new updates are released automatic updates hangs slow computers for hours because the checks are so long that wu connection goes time out so it has to start from scratch every time. It's really awful.
  15. Err do you know that Media Center is an XP pro? The only thing it can't do is joining a domain but for the rest it's identical.
  16. Am I the only one that sees SVCHOST.exe cpu usage going to 100% when checking for updates on Microsoft Update website? I'm completely sure that the 100% cpu usage is caused by the automatic updates service because if I terminate that service the cpu usage stops. I had this problem on all of my computers (5) and I'm pretty sure a lot of people in this forum had this problem too. Does somebody here managed to fix it?
  17. Where's the problem reducing it to 16 colors with dithering doesn't look all that bad
  18. Doesn't http://www.calshop.biz/temidesktop_6/Windo...Xp/WINXP009.jpg looks a lot better than the current blue-only boot screen?
  19. Probably with resahcker, but it won't be "universal", that is, available for all languages Why? Can't reshacker just alter the editbox size instead of replacing the entire dialog?
  20. It can't be fixed? Isn't there a way to have XPize change the sizes of the color picker editboxes?
  21. Err... isn't there a post for 5.2 themes? I can't find them!
  22. If it's not in my list it means that it has been replaced by a cumulative patch (maybe a MCE patch). The integrated hotfixes + some other MCE specific ones integrated with a postinstall make my installations show 0 available updates on WU. Unless WU screwes up the italian updates for MCE.
  23. Yes I already knew it does integrate well on normal XP this is why I wrote "is wrongly integrated on MCE" in the topic name. My adsl connection doesn't work well right now so I can't try to see if one of them gives problem because windows update takes ages to load.
  24. The version is different from the one present in the KB902400 package: it's the version included in the windows cd.
  25. I pratically installed a clean MCE on a virtual machine, I went on WU and wrote on paper all the hotfixes. WU for MCE sucks sometimes it reports wrong updates (for example sometimes it reports update rollup 1 for MCE even if it's old) it took me 2 days to find out the correct list of updates so don't rely on WU use my list instead. Those are all MS fixes and I also integrated last version of XPize (I don't know if it contains such DLL since I couldn't extract its archive). Also the KB902400 has the last version of that DLL so it is strange that nlite doesn't use the latest version.
