  1. While playing a little, I came through another question: Is it possible to overwriter the normal standard help.exe. I tried, even during installation, but the original file is always restored. Is it possible to overwrite the help command anyhow?
  2. Thanks for the asnwer, but unfortunately it didnt't helped. I didn't have installed IE7 and the key in my registry doesn't exist. Any other idea?
  3. The lattest updates don't install on my system and I don't have a clue why. This is the KB905915: 0.931: 2005/12/14 17:03:57.135 (local) 0.931: C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download\0af5890fd4bd4b5e665ff4f51f8aab77\update\update.exe (version 0.931: Failed To Enable SE_SHUTDOWN_PRIVILEGE 0.931: Hotfix started with following command line: -q /Z -er /ParentInfo:0fb5f19da59fb54891af7c12d8c9a099 0.931: Unexpected Error While Executing Line 1 ( Test.IE7InstallBlock.Section ) of PreRequisite 0.941: KB905915 Setup canceled. 0.941: Update.exe extended error code = 0xf00d For the KB910437 there's no logfile created. Anyone got an idea, what the problem is? Title Edited - Please follow new posting rules from now on. --Zxian
  4. I don't have any experience with XP Home, but in XP Pro you would ahve to make yourself owner of the directory and then give yourself full access to the folders.
  5. Thanks a lot for the replies. It's exactly what, I was looking for. And yes, I see the difference, but I nice to have a possibility to see, which command line aplications are available on the system.
  6. You don't have to format any partition, even the one, you want to install Xp on. So normally, when I install Xp, I format the partition, On which I install XP and leave the others untouched...
  7. You can install the complete player, save the plugin files from the firefox plugins directory, uninstall the player and move back the plugin files to firefox's plugin directory. I also searched a long time to get the plugin-files separately, but hadn't any luck.
  8. Depending on the manufacturer of your HDD, you can download adequate software on the manufacturer's homepage.
  9. You could use the following lines in a batch to detect the drive letter: for %%i in (C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) do if exist %%i:\Win51 set CDROM=%%i: echo Found CD-Rom as drive %CDROM%
  10. You can run the installation directly from cmdlines.txt. At this time the newhardwarewizard isn't activated. I do it this way for Daemon Tools and it works fine. How to disable the hardware wizard, you should have a look in the device driver forum in Pyron's posts, I think he has a file, which disables the wizard. Hope this helps.
  11. Just set the view in the current folder to list. Then go to Tools -> Folder Options -> View and click Apply to all folders. Then these settings are taken for all folders. Only thing is, that also your other foldersettings ( e.g. show hidden files ) of the current folder are taken for all folders. I don't know howto only set the view for all folders.
  12. Now I finally got a little victory avoiding the problem, that start /wait doesn't work. It's a very unaesthetic and I don't like the solution, but it's the only way, I can think of getting around the problem with this crappy installer. I first run the generate_XML.cmd which I posted before. Then I run the installer with setup.exe -installerConfig "AdobeInstallerConfiguration.xml Then I run the following batch: setlocal enableextensions cd /d %~dp0 :loop sleep 300 For /f %%i in ('tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq msiexec.exe"') do ( goto loop ) endlocal exit At last I run the following Batch to cleanup a little: reg delete HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run /v "Acrobat Assistant 7.0" /F del "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Adobe Acrobat*" /Q /F
  13. When you have a fixed drive letter assigned to your USB-drive, you can use the following command to change to the folder containing the batch cd /d %~dp0
  14. I posted this already some time ago, but there came no helping answer. Problem is, that I really need this: I want to add some commands, which I add to system32, e.g. cdburn.exe, to appear in the help-command ( when I type "help" in command line). Help would greatly appreciated.
  15. There exists a tool called getsid in the Windows 2000 Ressource Kit Tools...
  16. Just run the following batch as the administrator, then the administrator's folder is deleted after the next login. But it would be a piitty, if the next user, who logs in, is the administrator. If you want to make sure, that this isn't happening, you could write a little batch, which only deletes the folder, if the logged in user, isn't the administrator. @echo off SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Applications" /f REG ADD %KEY%\070 /VE /D "Delete Administrators folder" /f REG ADD %KEY%\070 /V 1 /D "rmdir /s /Q \"%USERPROFILE%\" " /f You also could do the job, without having to run the script as the administrator and having the script run before login, but first thing would be a little more complicated ( would have to get the folder's path out of the registry) and the second thing I'M not quite sure, how to do, would be necessary a little reading. To change the name of administrator's directory, you've got to change the path in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\SID\ProfileImagePath, where for SID you have to enter the administrator's SID. Hope this helps a little.
  17. After fighting a few days with the installation, I got the advise to install directly the specific components through the msi to avoid the problem, that the start /wait doesn't work. Btw to deactivate the registration you could use the following regfile REGEDIT4 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Registration\Suite\131\2.0.0\255] "EPIC_REGS_TYPE"=dword:00000004 "EPIC_REGS_STATE"=dword:00000002 "EPIC_REGS_COUNT"=dword:00000000 "EPIC_REGS_DATE"="2005-11-29 14:19" And this is my cleanup.cmd to clenaup the autostart, but only works on english systems ( don't know, how to get the path to startmenu folder language independent): reg delete HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run /v "Acrobat Assistant 7.0" /F del "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Adobe Acrobat*" /Q /F I'll now try the way with the msipackages and I'll post my experiences. On other thing I'm asking is, how to perform an automatic update once after installation automatically. Anyone knows?
  18. Already made a virusscan? Seems to be a little strange behaviour. Especially the automatic shutdown makes me thinking about a virus.
  19. Create a folder with your last scripts, e.g. %SYSTEMDRIVE%\runlast containing turn_off_autologon.cmd and add_useraccount.vbs Then you would just have to make an entry in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx, e.g. with this batch, which you should call after all other things: @echo off SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Last steps" /f REG ADD %KEY%\070 /VE /D "Turn off autologon" /f REG ADD %KEY%\070 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\runlast\turn_off_autologon.cmd" /f REG ADD %KEY%\071 /VE /D "Create new user" /f REG ADD %KEY%\071 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\runlast\add_useraccount.vbs" /f REG ADD %KEY%\072 /VE /D "Delete runlast folder" /f REG ADD %KEY%\072 /V 1 /D "CMD /C rmdir %SYSTEMDRIVE%\runlast /Q" /f REG ADD %KEY%\073 /VE /D "logoff this user" /f REG ADD %KEY%\073 /V 1 /D "CMD /C shutdown -l -f -t 0" /f This should it be, perhaps I'm missing something anywhere, but have a try. Hope it helps.
  20. Do you have enabled lock for the desktop ( contained in the desktop's context menu )?
  21. use the following two lines: rmdir /S /Q "directoryname" exit
  22. Seems to be fine. Just try, if it works as supposed.
  23. You could leave autologon enabled and put an entry to a script into the runonce regkey whiich disables autologon, asks the user for the username, creates the user and asks for the password and logs off the user. But if you do it this way, I'm not quite sure, if the user isn't able to do other things.
  24. First thing to check is, if the files are copied to the harddisk. If so you have to check the commands to install the apps. You should be able to use "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Apps" in runonceex.cmd as path to your apps. Hope this helps a litttle.
  25. Have a look at "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon". There should be a value called "AutoAdminLogon". Set this one to 0 and problem should be solved.
