  1. searched for 'burn' and 'cd writing' didn't get any results soo actually im trying to get cd burning functionality in bart pe. is there an easy way to do this? i was hoping there was a freeware application or somehow i could get normal windows xp burning functionality. thanks for any info edit: im using windows xp sp2 rc2 on bart pe
  2. how did you make that package though? im trying to figure out how to get nvidia display drivers to load properly during windows setup
  3. EDIT: ahh, doh, bit tornado does work with /S, i just accidently did /s, forgot its case sensitive!
  4. i searched everywhere on the site, but can't find any info on how to make bit tornado install silently. anyone know? i tried switches for other programs but this one is different.
  5. i have, it works on 3 computers. but not on the 4th. so there is some setting somewhere that is hindering it. but of course MS can never list what settings affect remote shutdown procedures
  6. so i should disable master browser on all of them and reboot? also, now that I have this new sharing mode. i can't access any shares on the computer. a login screen pops up with a greyed out login saying PC1/Guest, and lets do a password. but guest password doesn't work, it really doens't give me a chance to get access to the share. in permissions, its set to everyone for read control. any idea how to make shares work again?
  7. Yes. btw, between 3 computers it's working now. BUT not on the 4th, so i still haven't figured it out completely. when i turned off simple file sharing on all 4 computers, it automatically started working between 3 of them. the 4th still gives access denied, now just need to figure out why.
  8. we can ping each other. we can file share. we can play LAN games. we can do it all. EXCEPT get admin rights on each other. also just in case there is a possibility it has an effect. we are all connected to a linksys dsl router, its wireless but we are all using cords to the switch part. and all using 10.9.8.* address. doubt it would matter, but just in case!
  9. it is personalized menus like xtrememac said! personalized menus hide programs you havent used basically and show you the things that you do use
  10. Ok, there 4 windows xp pro computers on this LAN, all in the same workgroup. I want to be able to go between them and be able to remotely use shutdown.exe or the pstools. but its not working, I supply the correct username and password of an admin on the machine, yet it says error code 5 access denied. unfortunately i dont know why its access denied, so i was wondering if someone could help me through this to get it working. I had it working between 1 computer and another ONLY, but I couldn't find out what the difference was between them that made it work(since then i formatted one, and now none work). But i know that machine1 only had to supply a username and password of a known admin on machine2 and didn't have to have that username on his computer locally for it to work, contrary to what some people have told me. anyone wanna help me out with this? MS doesn't do a good job of explaining it, im sure it requires some services and other things, but they assume you have everything ready and that its a piece of cake. ive been to about 3 forums, and none of them could make it work remote registry is enabled on all computers. we all have working LAN activity. we all have IPX, TCPIP, netbios installed, can browse files fine. EDIT: and WMI service is enabled on both as well
  11. well in case anyone wants their xp install to get the highest refresh rates possible, i made a little vbs file for that. Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject ("WScript.Shell") WshShell.Run ("%systemroot%\install\reforce\reforce.exe") WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys "{TAB}" WScript.Sleep 250 WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}" WScript.Sleep 250 WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}" WScript.Sleep 250 WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}" WScript.Sleep 250 WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}" WScript.Sleep 250 WshShell.SendKeys "%{F4}" BUT it only works if your monitor and video card have been detected already. I put it in my RunOnceEx, and at the end, it will reboot(refreshforce requires a reboot anyway) and it works well. also if there is a better way to get max refresh rates, like a silent way, let me know
  12. ok maybe not. i tried putting my .vbs file in startup or shutdown, the vbs file then adds a registry entry. but it simply doesn't work. EDIT: NEVER MIND IT WORKS
  13. there are plenty of places to put startup programs, run, runonce etc + startup folders in profiles. but is there a place in the registry that functions like 'run' but will execute commands when someone logs off/restarts/shutsdown? if it helps to clarify, i made a reg file that clears the Run reg folders in CU and LM, so that programs can never put themselves in there and start up without my knowing, but it will only be useful if i can get the regfile to execute on logoff/restart/shutdown. and if anyone cares, heres what the reg file does [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
  14. right before runonceex, i have to log on, but while its saying 'loading your settings' etc. runonceex is already running! how can i tell runonceex to chill out until i get into windows? the major reason being is im trying to get refreshforce.exe to run properly. and i have a .vbs file that needs to run and windows has to be at the runonceex screen at least for these commands to work, otherwise, the vbs file runs or may not, but nothing happens as a result.. any ideas?
  15. what settings do i lose by doing it this way? i didn't notice anything awry.
  16. my bad. i forgot explorer.exe starts back up automatically
  17. argh, for some reason after i run this: pskill explorer.exe start exporer.exe my documents window pops in explore mode. i have no clue why. i didn't tell it to. and if i do the above using the gui the my documents window doesnt pop up. any ideas? im trying to make this as clean as possible so that window isn't acceptable
  18. ahh yes. pskilling explorer.exe and then bringing it back did just the trick. thanks
  19. there are some changes after RunOnceEx happens that can only be seen if the desktop refreshes(the registry option for showing file extensions.) does anyone know a quick VBS script that could refresh the desktop? ive been learning some VBS, i can do appactivate and some basic stuff, but i can't find a resource that tells how to 'activate' the desktop and then from there i could perform a sendkey f5.
  20. Ok, I suppose thats the only way, ill just do it like that
  21. i was wondering if anyone could help me with this semi-complicated problem im having with unattended windows xp pro installation. I'm running an unattended xp pro install, and im using RunOnceEx as my application and registry setting installer. at the end of my app list in runonceex, i have a .CMD that is called which enters some registry keys, copies some shortcuts, deletes extra files etc, specifically though, enabling quick launch, copying icons to quicklaunch, and a registry setting that enables the classic control panel. BUT these things i mentioned DO NOT execute properly whilst they run in RunOnceEx. control panel doesnt change, even after a reboot, and my quick launch icons dont appear. NOW, if i run this .cmd file again afte RunOnceEx runs its course. it works perfectly(maybe something about windows being fully loaded after runonceex goes? i dont know, but some of these reg entries dont like being in runonceex limbo) im looking for a work-around for this, like a .cmd file that runs AFTER RunOnceEx, so that it can properly apply these settings, but for the life of me i can't figure out how to automate this. Can anyone help me figure out a solution for this? either a way to make these things work in RunOnceEx, or a way to fake another type of RunOnce that runs after RunOnceEx.
  22. i totally didn't see that applications forum. and 7zip is the first entry on that sticky! cool thanks
  23. im working on making an unattended winxppro cd, but one hangup, I'm going to want to install 7zip(its like winrar but freeware), its a self-extracting file, and it lets me use a /Q for quiet mode, but unfornuately it still asks 'do you want to install this'? now once this happens it comes up with yes or no, and yes is highlighted. now my question, is there a way to tell windows to say yes to that automatically? i need it to either input a 'y' or carriage return. any help would be appreciated -shapeless
