    Windows XP "Windows Cannot Change Password"

    Hi all, I'm also having this error. In my case, although I get the error, the password is actually set =\. Any way to fix it? It happens to all my accounts =(. Thanks.
  2. I've yet to try that, but it should . I trust your tweak, I just don't understand why VMWare and VPC are like this .
  3. I've rebooted already? =\ I thought I stated it. Thanks though . Edit: I'm running it on VMware, and I've rebooted the virtual machine a lot of times already. Must I reboot my actual system? It doesn't make sense to me . I can't test it out now, downloading some anime .
  4. Hiya, thanks for those links, but they don't state any thing related to my problem, or did I miss it? By the way, interesting articles, especially the 2nd one .
  5. Hiya, I've tried VMWare. My page file is stuck at 383MB now =\. the attached screenshot will give a better idea of my problem. Thanks in advance. Notice the pagefile is set at 768-768MB, but the allocated is 383MB . I've restarted many times already.

    Quick Launch Icons?

    Yea it's the same user. I was just wondering why ^_^. Anyone? Thanks by the way, I'll check out shortcut.exe ^^.
  7. Yup my virtual hard disk has 3GB, and it's NTFS . Alright I'll give VMWare a try. Thanks man .
  8. Ah ok, thanks. Got to read up on RunOnceEX now .
  9. Hiya, Just wondering, is there anyway I can make Windows run another batch file right after I restart my computer? (After [GuiRunOnce], restart, and run another batch file.] Thanks in advance.
  10. Hi, I used the below entry to enable quick launch in an unattended installation, and I noticed that when installing from [GuiRunOnce] Firefox, Thunderbird, and Winamp (not silent, with dialogs ), their icons don't get added to the quick launch bar. By default, these programs create quicklaunch icons when installing them normally.

Thanks in advance. Edit: I forgot to add that if I re-install them manually, the icons get created.
  11. WwTIPPYwW: Yep, that's what I did. However, the pagefile is always stuck at 191MB on my virtual PC. Does it work for you? prathapml: Thanks I'll check that out . Edit: prathapml, yours seems very effective . I'm trying it on my VPC in an hour or so . Edit: Bah, it's still stuck at 191MB. The initial size shows 768MB, and the maximum size shows 768MB. However, the "Currently Allocated" shows 191MB. Restarting it didn't work. Is this a VPC 2004 bug?

    kazaa lite installation

    Hey, I've been wondering, what is the /SP- switch for? I've managed to make it completely silent, however, it doesn't automatically install the Real and Quicktime plugins for my firefox browser, probably cause it'll require a dialog. I don't mind having a dialog for just a short while, so which is the switch that will allow dialogs when needed? Edit: Thanks by the way . Helped a lot! Edit: Pardon my laziness, I just found out what /SP is for. /SP- Disables the This will install... Do you wish to continue? prompt at the beginning of Setup.

  13. Hiya, if you take a look at [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management] You'll see a key "PagingFiles", which I think holds the information for the page file, export it and you should be done. However, I've tried it on a Virtual PC installation, but it's always locked at 191MB, it seems there's some problem with Page Files in a VPC, cause it's still stuck at 191MB even when I install without that specific registry setting. Anyway, mine's set to C:\pagefile.sys, with a fixed size of 768MB. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management] "PagingFiles"=hex(7):43,00,3a,00,5c,00,70,00,61,00,67,00,65,00,66,00,69,00,6c,\ 00,65,00,2e,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,20,00,37,00,36,00,38,00,20,00,37,00,36,00,\ 38,00,00,00,00,00

    kazaa lite installation

    Sorry to bump this topic up, but I found out your switches are only 1/2 right. For some reason, when you type /SAVEINF="install.inf", the install.inf file will be saved to the Windows directory automatically. Thus, it's better to provide a full path, like /SAVEINF="C:\install.inf". Similarly, when you use /SILENT /SP- /LOADINF="install.inf", the program expects to find an install.inf file in the Windows directory, if it doesn't, it'll simply execute /SILENT /SP-, without the LOADINF part. Sorry if I'm wrong, I tried this on Kazaa Lite Mega Codec Pack 1.02, and found it out. Anyway, thanks for the switches .

    To skip the Welcome Setup Screen: Under [unattended], add: UnattendSwitch = Yes I don't know why you've the regional settings . Yours seems correct.

    Hi! New here :).

    Hiya, I came across this site while searching for help on unattended installation. Lots of useful information posted here! Thanks to those who contributed .
