  1. thanks! is there any way to print the output to a file or the console window? so i can see exactly what it says? preferabbly a log file it says error code 1, line 11 char 60
  2. IcemanND can you fix the formating? i have no clue what goes on each line
  3. this code finds the manufacturer of the computer '-> Varibles And Objects Dim Act :Set Act = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell") Dim Fso :Set Fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Dim Wmi :Set Wmi = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\.\root\cimv2") Dim Chk, Col, I, Obj, Reg Chk = False Reg = Act.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%Systemroot%\OOBE\OEM\") '-> Array To Hold Manufacture Name Col = Array("Acer","Apple","ASUS","eMachine","Gateway","HP","Toshiba") '-> Wmi Querry For Computer Manufacture For Each Obj In Wmi.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_ComputerSystem") For Each I In Col If InStr(1,Obj.Manufacturer,I,1) Then RegFileAdd(I) Chk = True End If Next Next '-> If There Was No Matching Manufacture If Chk = False Then MsgBox "Can Not Determine The Computer Model", 4128,"Undetermine Computer Model" End If '-> Function To Add The Registry File Function RegFileAdd(Name) Reg = Reg & Name & "\" & Name & ".reg" If Fso.FileExists(Reg) Then Act.Run("Regedit /S " & Reg),1,True Else MsgBox "Error Can Not Find This File" & vbCrLf & _ Reg, 4128,"Reg File Missing" End If End Function but i have 3 acer computers, so i need the script to find the manufacturer & model number, then load the correct reg file (for computer branding purposes) but i want it to me autmatic, so it can find the manufacturer & model number and install that info , so if i get another computer, i can use the same disc, without having to add more custom brainding, basically is there a way for the vbs file to install the manufactor and model number on it's own, without seperate reg files?
  4. grabben, why do you think i asked for a script to detect computer manufactorur and model number? FOR EXACTLY WHAT YOU JUST SAID, TAKE THE **** SCRIPT AND CUSTOMIZE IT FOR YOUR NEEDS, if you have a problem, post a thread, but don't ask everyone else do the work for you, your a n00b, that's fine, but your lazy, that's NOT fine
  5. you have to edit Setup.exe.mui ALL of the setup.exe's andsetup.exe.mui and W32UIRES.dll and all associated mui's the spinning animation is actaully a bmp in one of the *.dll files i have no clue where the actual cursor is though probably hidden deep within some non-dll file somewhere
  6. for Windows 7, you can use Logon Workshop, idk bout XP, i dont use xp, i advise you to not use xp
  7. what do you want to change about it? the text? i forget which file that button is in, but i'm pretty sure it's in W32UIRES.dll > Dialog section don't mess around with .RC files, it only casues confusion, and Resource Hacker will save it as .RC, but will only import .RES so you have to rename all of them too just edit them, in the resource editor
  8. the Windows is preparing your computer for first use and on until you login in, is all the files in %WinDir%\System32\OOBE and the Animation, you see when is says Windows is Preparing Your Computer for first use, is FirstUXRes.Wim
  9. i already know how to edit the images, and the text strings what i really want to do, is find out what files describe the progress bar, and all the other stuff like that, that is hard core mods does anyone know which file holds pandoras box? does anyone know how to edit the files in pandoras box? the only thing i've found so far, is in APDS.dll > CSS > 502 & 503 are CSS files, that describe some of the text color stuff, but i have no clue where those settings kick in
  10. well to fit on a dvd9 all i need to delete is 1.5 GB's
  11. thanks OP for taking on this project, but can you release the source code? this is IMHO the BEST win 7 customization tool. but it's fallen behind it's rival's becasue it isnt being worked on. (i assume, as there hasn't been an update in forever.)
  12. you should wait because Windows 7 SP1 is already RTM and the update is sapposed to go online within the next couple days.
  13. if you already installed them into your partition that you are going to capture, then you don't need to slipstream them as there already installed.
  14. im compressing about 22.78 GB's of data into a windows 7 image (it includes adobe and office and other stuff too.) it compreses to 9.23 GB wim file. im using the maximum compression how can i get this to compress to about 7gb's to fit on a DVD9? can i delete the WinSxS/Backup folder? is there a hidden compression in imagex? i heard about a hidden compression option that compresses better than maximum. what folders can be SAFELY deleted to slim the wim down? i've already removed all language folders from the windows folder except en, and en-us.
  15. APDS.DLL has two CSS files i THINK they are for how the setup screen is layed out Dreamweaver CS5 DOES NOT show what it would look like is there anyway to see how this css would look? heres the code from 502.CSS /* Base style sheet MSX UA Longhorn content */ @media Screen { body { font-family: Segoe UI, Verdana, Arial, Sans Serif; color: #333333; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; } .popupBody, body.popupBody { font-family: Segoe UI, Verdana, Arial, Sans Serif; color: #333333; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; background: #FEFECC; border:1px black solid; } a:link { color: #0033CC; text-decoration: none; } a:visited { color: #990099; text-decoration: none; } a:active { text-decoration: none; } a:hover { text-decoration: underline; } a:link img, a:visited img { border-style: none; } #RandFSection { font-size: 70%; margin-right: 8px; margin-left: 12px; margin-top: 30px; margin-bottom: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px; padding-top: 8px; border-top: 1px solid Activecaption; } .randfinputbuttons { font-size: 70%; margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; padding-top: 0px; padding-bottom: 24px; } .randffirstline, .randfradiobuttons, .randftextarea { margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; padding-top: 0px; padding-bottom: 8px; } .randfradiobutton { margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; padding-top: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px; } table.banner { font-size: 70%; table-layout: auto; margin-right: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; border-bottom: 1px solid Activecaption; } td.bannerText { background-color: Infobackground; vertical-align: top; padding-top: 9px; padding-left: 0px; padding-bottom: 12px; padding-right: 8px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; width: 100%; border: 0px; } td.bannerIcon { background-color: Infobackground; vertical-align: top; padding-left: 12px; padding-top: 8px; padding-right: 10px; border: 0px; } }

  18. to change the background you edit the imageres.dll and you edit setup.bmp, background.bmp and winpe.bmp and in imageres.dll you use a resource editor and replace the defualt backgrounds with your custom ones YOU ALSO NEED TO REPEAT THESE STEPS IN THE BOOT.WIM AND IN THE INSTALL.WIM AT C:\Windows\System32\oobe AND ALL OF THE CREATING USER NAME AND ALL AFTER SETUP STUFF IS IN DIFFERENT FILES IN THE OOBE FOLDER AND YOU MUST REPLACE THE IMAGERES.DLL AND THE BACKGROUND.BMP AND ALSO GO TO YOUR DVD FOLDER AND REPLACE THE BACKGROUND_CLI.BMP ALSO
  19. well to add a drop shadow to the start menu you need to do a few things and ill explian it too Windows 7 Aero dosent have a drop shadow section so you would hacve to edit the start menu images and make a new layer and basically make a drop shadow effect in photoshop so you have to edit the start menu images to make it look like theres a drop shadow im too busy right now to rab the image names but the start menu section in VSB is Start Menu > Panels > Aero > Top Start Menu > Panels > Aero > Bottom Start Menu > Panels > Basic export all those images and figure out which image is which part of the start menu VSB also has a thing on the bottom that will tell you what a certain image is used for i hope i helped!
