  1. Why is NDP20SP2-KB976576-x86.exe downloading as ndp20sp2-kb976576-x86_8e8121a8bddfb2095453335c593ffa22ef8e95ec.exe? And when I Google for it, I get what I think is strange. I get pages coming up in different languages, no pages linking to Microsoft about the update.
  2. I do not want to use autologon. So far RunOnceEx will not run when I logon manually. I do not now if this is because I have to use autologon or not. Do you have to have autologon to run RunOnceEx? Thank you.
  3. Took a harddrive out of 1 computer that had XP Pro in it and stuck it in another computer. I took out the original harddrive and just left it out. The original has XP Home. I moved the jumpers to Master and it worked. Then I decided I was going to add the original back to the computer. I moved the jumper on the XP Pro harddrive to slave and just added the XP Home harddrive. The XP Home booted up fine, but the XP Pro did not. I edited the boot.ini file so I could choose which OS I wanted. I had to eventually repair XP Pro. XP Pro would start to boot then just crash and flash a blue screen. Why just changing the XP Pro harddrive to slave make it unbootable? What files could have been changed edited etc... to avoid doing a repair on XP Pro?
  4. Oh ok I see now ty. If I encrypt it, I have to use the setupmgr.
  5. ? I don't get it you have to put the Administrator password there right?
  6. The install stops and complains about the admin password. Looking at the log file it reports this error "The Unattended Setup parameter "adminpassword" in section "guiunattended" is missing or invalid." I searched but could not find anything. I tried editing my WINNT.SIF file and change the AdminPassword line but nothing helped. Here is what I have tried [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword="xxx" EncryptedAdminPassword=Yes [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword=xxx EncryptedAdminPassword=Yes I am not using autologin.
  7. Does it matter if the whole word or the first letter of each word is capitalized? I see some people use all caps and some use no caps and some only capitalize the first letter of each word.
  8. This is what I am trying Start /wait %systemdrive%\install\ff2.0.0.12.exe /S start /wait "%PROGRAMFILES%\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -silent -setDefaultBrowser" When I do I get Windows cannot find '-silent' and then some more. Any idea whats wrong?
  9. Thank you running "%PROGRAMFILES%\Mozilla Thunderbird\uninstall\helper.exe" /SetAsDefaultAppGlobal works final test is installing windows again.
  10. I used the cmd file Doc Symbiosis gave. When I started Thunderbird everything was checked but newsgroup so that was left out and I still had to choose. I am looking over the cmd file and going to add entries for newsgroup.
  11. I know for Firefox you can use %PROGRAMFILES%\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -silent -setDefaultBrowser to set it as the default browser is there a similar command for thunderbird?
  12. Why bother with "Create/acquire DNF11.exe and DNF20.exe" if .NET Framework 3.5 Full Redistributable Package contains 2.0 and 2.0 SP1?
  13. Lol it is sorry. I just wish MS would release one package that would be good for all 3.
  14. With .NET Compact Framework 3.5 Redistributable I do not think any other package is needed is it? Not sure if you still net version 3.0 though.
