  1. replaced on the hard drive... (copied it off an original cd) then i made my ISO again and tested it in VPC2004 and it worked after doing that
  2. after you have downloaded your uxtheme.dll, 9 times out of 10 you will have to do: 1) modifype uxtheme.dll -c 2) makecab uxtheme.dll uxtheme.dl_ 3) use the uxtheme.dl_ to replace the one in I386 folder
  3. the "2180" refers to build number 2180 of service pack 2.. there are lots and lots of different build numbers for service pack 2 first you have to check which build number you are using (nLite is a good way to do this) then download the appropriate uxtheme.dll for that version sp1 is good because there is only one "final" sp1 version so everyone can use the same uxtheme.dll.... when sp2 goes official there will be only one "final" version of that also, but it's not out yet nLite very useful.. how else can you fit XP SP2, plus office 2003, plus photoshop cs, plus nero, powerdvd, acrobat, blah blah blah onto your cd?
  4. i've done it, but not with vb scripts with batch files.... so sorry i can't answer your question but it is possible that part of the new security in SP2 has disabled vb scripts during run once? that would be my guess why it doesnt work anymore if you have changed nothing else
  5. the %systemdrive% you are referring to is where the installation is... it has nothing to do with where it gets installed to.... if it is an installshield installer and you have created an ISS file, just edit that file and change the installation path... otherwise some programs will let you specify an installation directory as a switch, but it depends on the program and the installer
  6. copy the asms folder onto your hard drive from an original cd again... i had the same problem once as well and re-burning didn't fix it so i just replaced the whole asms folder and it worked again
  7. if you use office shrink you can reduce office2003 to 288mb no point in zipping office as the self extracting zip file will be bigger than the shrunk source
  8. That would set your second level data cache to 1298k check it in your registry if you deny it
  9. The DWORD is a hexidecimal number 0 = default nothing setting 100 = 256k cache 200 = 512k cache
  10. Ctrl+Alt+Delete = Task Manager.... go to the processes tab to see what files are running
  11. I think it does have network boot options, but how does that work? It will look to the lan for a boot source, but how do i provide one? it would probably be a viable alternative if it was easy and i knew a bit about it already... if it's too complicated, then....
  12. i've never had a drama with k-lite since 2.23 when i first started using it i'm intrigued by this INF component selection though as I hated not having an option to turn things off one problem though - I want to get rid of media player classic, but i have been finding more and more often that a lot of movie files simply won't play in media player 9 but they work in media player classic... i get the error "Windows Media Player encountered an unknown error" but if I play the same movie with media player classic it works fine?
  13. OK Will this work? 1) Put the laptop hard drive in my desktop machine 2) Backup my boot.ini file 3) Format the Laptop drive as NTFS 4) Run XP Home setup from the CD 5) Tick the box "copy installation files to hard drive" 6) After it has copied installation files, quit setup 7) Copy the modified Boot.ini, plus the C:\$WIN_NT$.~LS and C:\$WIN_NT$.~BT folders to the laptop hard drive 8) Replace my boot.ini with the original one 9) Put the laptop drive back in the laptop and boot it up into setup Will that work? Is there something else I have to do to the laptop hard drive to make it bootable? Thanks...
  14. if you are using a custom theme and don't have the correct version of the uxtheme.dll file, it will revert to classic appearance... also, are you doing any registry tweaks?
  15. i've tested it with HEAPS of computers of each of the 3 mentioned platform types... and it works great... all components get installed with the correct versions
