  1. if your installing from c:\APPS\Office_2003_SP1 are the files copied there during the process?, if not that coul dbe your problem If they are copied, then your install command is at fault
  2. as long as your floppy disc is in the A: drive, assuming it A: is a floppy drive and not somewhere else
  3. unfortunately i thought i could help as title is for outlook, not outlook express. never seen on for oe but they exist for outlook. Sorry to gripe, but a clearer title helps a great deal, hence realgujju giving details for ms outlook 2003
  4. i use this which i found on here by somebody else, think i used search words of i386 copy save the below as copiesi386.cmd @ECHO OFF for %%i in (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) do if exist %%i:\cd.txt SET cdrom=%%i: robocopy %CDROM%\I386 /MIR /V %SystemDrive%\I386 reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup" /v "Installation Sources" /t REG_MULTI_SZ /d "%SystemDrive%\I386" /f reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup" /v SourcePath /d %SystemDrive% /f reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup" /v ServicePackSourcePath /d %SystemDrive% /f reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion" /v SourcePath /d %SystemDrive%\I386 /f exit ensure you have robocopy in system32 i use this in runonceex.cmd to call the above REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 1 /D "runhiddenconsole.exe /W %CDROM%\Apps\Misc\copiesi386.cmd" /f
  5. i'm guessing you have looked here: http://unattended.msfn.org and managed to get stuck at a particular point of your creation? though to add registry automatically/silently you need to use regedit.exe /s <filename>.reg
  6. test machines, rather than vmware/ms virtualpc
  7. not something stupid, like you have a blank line at the top of the file? because nothing obvious seems to stand out. you do alos have a blank line where pnpdrivers = , but guessing you deleted when copying over also, could you please use code tags as easier to read.
  8. i believe so, because it works with them. try without and see what happens
  9. i use my head, works everytime and they don't get lost and less chance of being acquired by undesirable means
  10. what a nightmare, and how if your pc is forcibly switched of do you manage to to make it legit with out a re-install. agree, with all previous comments, especially PROBLEMCHYLD, because it if was affordable people would be less inclined to pirate etc another well thought out mess by M$
  11. i would remove the encrypted password and make it plain text regional settings can be added to winnt.sif with no issues, i use and so do probably everyone else here so it install with native language not what is decided for you on behalf of M$
  12. blinkdt, yes your right it is, but as they are now starting to use the open document format, xml, then surely the question can be asked as i guess we aren't blinkered in our knowledge.
  13. ZenCoder, if you've installed update KB893066v2 (windows installer 3.1 v2) then you can and should be able to use /quiet /norestart to make it completely silent.
  14. if i vaguely recall, there was an issue with MS virtual PC and a 2gb max limit on iso that it could read, make sure you have SP1 install. though vmware is much faster. it doesn't matter whether you save to FAT, FAT32 or NTFS with regards to cdimage, use this site and see if it builds ok and then burn to cd from within nero. http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/15/ ps, seems i've lost what i used:(
  15. not sure, i'll have a look at the command i use and post later when home
  16. i install via svcpack.inf in both RIS and standalaone using the same command of: "MP10Setup.exe /c:""setup_wm.exe /Q /R:N /DisallowSystemRestore"" /q:A" and not had any issues and apply the updates after it also via svcpack.inf
  17. i use the msi with /quiet /norestart to install and it will be default install, just easier and smaller in some cases that .exe file as your probably aware, they can be pushed out through AD as well you don't specifically need to use msiexec /i to install, the /n pushes the msiexec commands to the .exe file start /wait, means that start and wait to finsh before doing next application in list oioldman
  18. i built cd as wished then used cdimage to make the iso, mine is 4gb, then burnt iso from nero and it is then bootable
  19. having a quick look - all seems ok. though i would use the .msi files for Acrobat Reader 7.0.8 & SunJava Update7 install them and the find acrobat is found in c:\program files\acrobat\ sunjava is found in c:\docs and setting\user\temp Quicktime7 is kicking about the forum, a search should find what you need
  20. thanks shark007 - you know this will need updating for many years to come
  21. also F7 will give the last 10 commands typed, but again will only work in that session
  22. just done a quick search and found this link: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=12161&hl=# and quite a few others that may help you
  23. i do it the same method you describe in your original post. just place your file in $OEM$\$$\System32\drivers\etc\ use it all the time and works a treat
  24. not yet been able to try them, hope to over weekend between watching the footy. will let you know result
  25. not sure about problems - use those that came with pc and all seems ok to me see if anything in the readme that may suggest why
