  1. I was able to use the nividia software that came with my video card driver package. It allowed me to configure my dual monitors in a couple different ways. If you have an nvidia card, go the nvidia control panel and have a look around. I do not remember exactly (and I'm at work), but you should be able to find it. I assume ATI would have a similar setup, but I can not be sure. Hope this helps... wordup48
  2. ripken204: where do you buy your cooling supplies from?
  3. You will likely get a lot more people trying this pack if you post a screenshot and give a little more information about what this does. Is it an addon to use in conjunction with XPize or a separate program? Is it for Vista ro XP etc etc Just a thought wordup48
  4. how do i take full control of that file? I go into the properties, but the "Full Control" checkbox is greyed out and I am not able to check it? Perhaps I am doing something wrong, but I am not sure how to fix it. Thanks in advance... wordup48
  5. What about this card? 7600GS AGP for $119.99 http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?...N82E16814130076 On another note, can anyone find a 6600GT AGP card anywhere on the net? Newegg does not have any it seems and I tried a quick google and nothing really turned up. wordup48
  6. Is anyone able to offer any help? Or is this thing I am trying to do not possible? Please reply if you can help. wordup48
  7. Hi, My friend has a Dell Inspiron 600m and wants me to format the system. However, he does not have the recovery CDs any longer (must have lost them). I know how to reinstall Windows by using an OEM CD and the product key on the bottom of the system. I can also find out the office key by using a key finder Utility. My question is this. Windows has different CDs, so that a retail CD will only take retail keys, an OEM CD will only take OEM keys, etc (I know you can modify the setupp.ini to accept any type of key you want). Are there also different types of office CDs? Or are they all the same? If office CDs are different just like windows CDs are, and assuming Dell's office key is an OEM one (is that a fair assumption??), is there anyway I can modify my Retail Office 2003 CD to accept friends legal licensed key from Dell. Now if the CDs are not different, (i.e., any office CD will take and office key, then it is not really an issue) I hope I am making myself clear. I just want to use my friend's legal office key when I reinstall his system. Thanks, wordup48
  8. Ok, thanks Shark. I have modified it and it looks like this. Does this look correct? [general] builddate=12/08/2006 description=Installs Adobe Reader 8.0. language=English - by adding this transforms directive to the 1ST command below like this; %windir%\vcpack.exe transforms=1033.mst //replacing the 1033 with your localization code, you can localize the installation title=Adobe Reader version=8.0 website=http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=88167 [GUIRUNONCE] %windir%\AR8Lite_ENG.exe cmd /c del /Q/F %windir%\AR8Lite_ENG.exe [dosnet_files] d1,AR8Lite_ENG.exe [txtsetup_files] AR8Lite_ENG.exe = 1,,,,,,,1,0,0 Thanks in advance. I pretty much left everything as it was, and just changed the filename. I'm not sure if I needed to do anything else? wordup48
  9. I know this is not svcpack compatible, but can I make the switchless installer into an addon and then just integrate it using nlite. I am pretty new to all this, so I would appreciate the help. Thank you, wordup48
  10. Can i just integrate this as a hotfix in nLite (and I assume it installs with the default options)? Also, I assume this should not have a problem with integrating this along with IE7 with nLite 1.2.1. This would be integrating after IE7 I presume because this is a newer file. Any clarification would be appreciated. Thank you! wordup48
  11. Can anyone confirm if the method detailed by neo_matrix.rs works? Also, I use RyanVM's update packs and I was wondering If I should integrate the update pack FIRST and then IE7, or if I should do it the other way around? Thanks in advance. wordup48
  12. Thank you very much gresh for the clear explanation
  13. Hi Gresh, I was wondering how you know when certain updates have replaced others. I have not been able to figure that out, and it is a little frustrating! I usually just end up applying the updates in the number order of the KB, and hoping that in that case it should take care of itself. Although I would like it much better if I did not have to slipstream any unnecessary updates. I look forward to your reply. Thank you! wordup48
  14. back for some more here. I need a little more clarification please. On my laptop, which has been activated by calling MS after using a stock XP SP2 OEM CD and my own CDkey on the sticker on the bottom of my laptop, I now would take the wpa.dbl that is in my system, make a copy of it somewhere, and then what? Do I: - integrate it into the i386\system32 dir that is on my stock XP SP2 OEM CD? or - just copy this file over to this windows\system32 dir when i do a format next? I do not find a $OEM$\$$\system32 dir on my cd, nor do i find anything remotely close to that.
  15. Ok, I am a little bit confused, so I'd just like to ask for some clarification. I have a laptop that I always have to call MS to get activated. I am using a normal XP OEM CD rather than the crap recovery ones that came with my laptop (I do not like all the extra junk that the recovery CDs have on them). With this tool, can I somehow make it so that I would not have to call MS every time after a format? BTW, when I install I use the original CD key that is on the sticker on the bottom of my laptop, if that helps. Please go easy on me. I am new at doing any sort of mods to and XP CD; I have not gotten into the unattended stuff, but that will be next. Anyway, I look forward to your replies. Thanks! wordup48
  16. how do i make the shellstyle.dll work?
  17. Thank you for your reply CptMurphy. I just opened up my boot.ini (on my XP drive) and it this is it in its entirety: ; ;Warning: Boot.ini is used on Windows XP and earlier operating systems. ;Warning: Use BCDEDIT.exe to modify Windows Vista boot options. ; [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT With this in mind, if I am not able to get back into Vista, do I need to do something with BCDEDIT.exe? I am unsure. It does not look like Vista is in my boot.ini. Thanks
  18. Hi, I have a question about my system. I currently have WinXP installed on partition 1 and WinVista installed on partittion 2 of the same physical hard drive. I would like to format my WinXP partiton and reinstall XP on that same partition. I was wondering what sort of of thing would happen if I were to do this. I am mainly worried about something happening with the bootloader (if you call it that) that Vista installed that allows you to pick Vista or "an earlier version of Windows" Can anyone offer some advice? Also, I would be open to the idea of just formatting BOTH partitions to install XP and then the newer build (5728) of Vista that was released recently. What effect would this have? I am just pretty lost on how exactly that vista bootloader is installed. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you! wordup48
  19. I have the same exact question as you preelude, with specific reference to the KB917151 update. Does anyone know the answer to this? Please help
  20. Oh, this is some sad news indeed. THe beauty of this program was its simplicity. Thank you for doing while it lasted Xable, it is truly sad to hear it has been discontinued.
  21. not sure if our good friend xable is still keeping this updated. I have PM'ed him and have not gotten a reply yet. Perhaps he is just away for the holidays...
  22. any new updates? will you do an update as of the end of 2005?
  23. i can't live without extensions anymore! its gotta be Firefox for me
  24. yeah...i get that been there done that feeling as well....It seems a lot like the NFSU2. I really liked that game, but there is not enough change in this one to really make a difference.... oh well....i'll still play it, but its just not as exciting anymore....
