  1. Thanks for replying so quick! erm, the url to download the software is Here and the model/serial is: TL-WN56GX, but it is not listed on the website, and when I go into DeviceManager or if I use Everest, the only information I get is: TP-LINK 11b/g Wireless Adapter as I bought 2 of these mini-PCI cards off fleebay, 1 for my laptop and the other from my partner. I have even tried to use InstallRite to capture the installation & the adding of thenetwork profiles, but ANY system I have tried that on has somehow crahsed the installation, as it boots to the login screen, then once you have entered your password, you get the normal desktop screen, but before it loads the taskbaror desktop, it just freezes, the caps &other lights work when pressed, but no other actions work. Thank you so much and I await your reply. Any helpful info on NIS2005 too please?
  2. Hi! I am having probsdoing an unattended installation of NIS 2005, I used the post described here: http://www.msfn.org/board/FIX-for-Norton-A...ecurity+2005%5C This worked perfectly, then I accidentally formatted the DVD, and now cannot get it working again The other problem I have is with my Laptop wireless software, TP-Link, I tried to use USSF.exe from WPI, and the prgram says its an InstallShield 2003 Package, tells me to use the following: "Setup.exe" /s /v"/qb" but this just runs the setup program, and then exits doing nothing. The additional notes say: You can also try to retrieve the .MSI file from the temp folder during installation, then install with: msiexec.exe /i setup.msi /qb BUT there is NO .msi for this. I am appealing for ANY help at all, as these 2 just need to be fixed to complete my unattended setup. Thanks in advance
  3. Thanks for all your replies, was beginging to pull my hair out, but I have finally found a way that works for what I want, this is using WPI, as I found this was the only way I would'nt get errors, like folders & files not found. The 1 question I wanna know is, can WPI be called BEFORE the end user logs on? This would really help during my setup! As I have a LOT of stuff installed on my boot partition, I will be using InstallRite, but with using this in the past, I find it quite tiresome going through all the rubbish it collects after installing, say that I have to reboot as it is part of the installation (such as Norton & other products) is there any quick & easy way of adding folders & files in the ignore part as it would take me all day to go through and manually and add files & folders to the ignore list. Thanks again, but at least I am moving forwards!
  4. Erm, it was unbelievably easy actually! What I did was start by installing a clean XP Pro(with sp2 integrated) in MS Virtual PC, then windows updates as normal, in the progress box, waited until the first 'batch' was done, then copied the text, pasted it into a text document, then on with the next batch etc, until all updates were installed, then copied this text document to my normal hard drive, and this next bit took the most time; downloading the updates! I used the Microsoft Update Catalogue to download each update at a time, then when downloaded, put the updates in a folder, named 001, 002, 003 etc, all the way upto over 100! Then I integrated them into my XP setup using nLite, but in the EXACT same order as they originally downloaded in Windows Update! So I now have a bootable MS ISO that will install XP and ALL updates(upto this week), but as yet the only things that dont integrate is the MSDotNet stuff, but I will sort this out next! If you have any probs or need a hand, let me know!
  5. Nobody going to help me? I only need help with this part, I'm not asking somone to do it all for me, I just need CLEAR instructions as I am not that technical minded, just really need to get this project completed! Erm, it was unbelievably easy actually! What I did was start by installing a clean XP Pro & SP2 in MS Virtual PC, then windows updates as normal, in the progress box, waited until the first 'batch' was done, then copied the text, pasted it into a text document, then on with the next batch etc, until all updates were installed, then copied this text document to my normal hard drive, and this next bit took the most time; downloading the updates!

  6. Hi! No offence but all I need to know is how to integrate programs into my installation, the only reason I mentioned RyanVM's is as that is the AIO package I have for Microsoft .net stuff, if Id found another package that installes all of it I would've used that, so I guess its a "first seen useful program that I chose to use" But thanks for your comments though, I am hard to offend most times, and after all at the end of the day, new users have to start somewhere! Martin H: Thanks for your post too, I shall read this over & over again, and if there is anything I cant get, I shall pop back! EDIT: Right, I am getting conflicting info here & I am not sure what to do for the easiest! I have downloaded RunOnceEx.cmd Creator, but the problem I have here is I dont at the moment know the full path, do I use the CD path and how do I set it up right? Other way I could do it is as what was suggested to me, "add your apps to e.g. '\$OEM$\$1\install\' and then call a batchfile from the 'GuiRunOnce' section of 'WINNT.SIF" Now Here is a copy & paste of my Winnt.sif file: [Data] AutoPartition=0 MsDosInitiated="0" UnattendedInstall="Yes" [Unattended] UnattendMode=ProvideDefault OemPreinstall=No TargetPath=\WINDOWS [GuiUnattended] EncryptedAdminPassword=NO OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=85 [UserData] ProductKey= *removed* FullName=*removed* OrgName="*removed* ComputerName=*removed* [Display] BitsPerPel=32 Xresolution=800 YResolution=600 Vrefresh=60 [TapiLocation] CountryCode=44 Dialing=Tone [RegionalSettings] LanguageGroup=1 Language=00000809 [Identification] JoinWorkgroup=WORKGROUP [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=Yes SO, am I right in thinking I can just add a new header at the bottom, with the following: [GuiRunOnce] "%systemdrive%\install\Installs.cmd" Then in the Installs.cmd file the paths to the stuff to install? I am planning on having the apps on the CD, so what would be the correct "internal" usage, as I am assuming that %systemdrive% is the boot hard drive, not the CD/DVD, am I correct here? Sorry for all the hastle, I did say I was new lol!
  7. Hi there! I'm a newbie topost here, but after using this website for the last 6 months or so, and tonight I have spent the last 3 hrs searching, I thought I would register to be part of these forums! The situation is: I have newly completed a fully licenced to myself Windows XP PRO Retail cd, complete with SP2 and all the latest updates (upto 3 days ago) and all get installed without a problem, even IE7 & WMP11 (Thanks guys for all the info & progs, you truely do make this so much fun!!) Now I have RyanVM's dotnetaio that I just need to run & install to test the CD to the next stage. Now bearing in mind that its actually taken me 6 months to finally get my head around all this new stuff(to me anyway), I cannot figure out an easy way to install progs AFTER the windows setup has been completed, now Im not the most clever of chaps, but would really appreciate an EASY & quick way to initially get RyanVM's Dotnetaio installed first, then if I can get the hang of that, more applications installed as I learn more! Thanks for listening to this, and I hope I can get pointed in the right direction to getting this project nearly finished!
