  1. Hi, Looking for some advise on this if possible. Current set up as follows. Windows XP SP2 / SP3 running bginfo via registry : [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] "BGINFO"="Bginfo.exe c:\\windows\\system32\\gds1.bgi /timer:0" This has no wallpaper enabled, plain blue background colour set. What I'm looking to do is over the December period have a different wallpaper image applied every day. We have GPO and Quest installed for applying GPO's. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi, Been trawling through the forums but can't seem to find anything on what I'm trying to achieve. I have a OSD created WIM file of a XP machine. What I was hoping to do was mount that wim file and integrate any missing XP hotfixes. I can find lots of details about doing this with msu Vista files but nothing on XP .exe files. Has anyone got any help on this. Cheers

  4. Hi, Fixed my issue with this code, may help someone. %SYSTEMDRIVE%\packagedapps\PDU_APP\wpi.hta sleep 60 goto processcheck :mshtaRunning sleep 60 :processcheck TASKLIST | %windir%\SYSTEM32\find.exe /I "mshta.exe " && goto mshtaRunning exit
  5. Hi, Been using WPI for sometime. Great tool. Moved onto the latest version but I am having some issues launching the hta.exe. My machine joins the domain then runs a batch file to run some printer / programs default settings, as part of the bat file I call the hta.exe like this : start /w %windir%\system32\mshta.exe c:\packagedapps\PDU_APP\wpi.hta Now this would normally stop the original batch file until I choose my programs to install from WPI. Once WPI finishes the installs it would then finish the batch file and reboot. I can see a white page launch then dissapear, then the batch file continues, as it start to shutdown the white page appears again and then I see my WPI splash screen, but this goes as the machine is shutting down. I did enter a sleep command after the start /w %windir%\system32\mshta.exe c:\packagedapps\PDU_APP\wpi.hta which works but is not something I would like to do. Any help would be great. My config file is for WPI Config 7.2.0+ Cheers
  6. Since this is a registry tweak, I suggest u try monitor thru Regshot Unicode A quick check reveal my test m/c (XP) registry key is at HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}\0003\HcDisableSelectiveSuspend: 0x00000001 HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}\0003\HcDisableSelectiveSuspend: 0x00000001 Uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power." will create these 2 keys on my own test m/c. I'm unsure it is standard or m/c dependant. Thanks for the reply. Not used that reg tool before, very handy. Been trying with regmon but to much info in logs. Just need to test on a few other machines but they all look the same other than some going from 0000 to 0007. Cheers
  7. Hi, My work has now moved vendor for its hardware. The problem I have is that now we have two types of hardware my OSD image requires updating. Everything works fine (SATA working , thanks to article from this forum ) other that an issue with the USB Root Hub - Power Management Settings. What I was hoping for is a reg setting to disbale the "USB Root Hub - Power Management Settings - allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option. i.e uncheck this box accross multiple hardware machines. I would then be able to apply this as reg fix as a post install through OSD , so it shouldn't matter on the make of machine / hardware type. Thanks in advance Stuart
  8. Hi, I hope i'm posting in the correct forum Looking for some help on an issue I have n capturing an image in OSD 2003. The set up I have is a VMware ESX virtual image with Windows XP SP2 with the relevant SCSI LSI drivers added into the base OS image. The build has completed fine and I know want to sysprep this VM image into our live SMS 2003 server. When I run the sysprep it all loks great and eventually turns the machine off. I then power up the image and boot from CD. It then scan the image and starts to capture the image up to my server. Now every time it reaches 1058mb in the capture it turns the VM ware XP workstation off, so it fails to capture the whole image. At first I thought it may be a corrupt file when it could see the last folder it was using before it closed down. So I deleted that folder and tested again. This time it went further but still failed when it reached 1058mb in the capture phase. Beginning to pull my hair out now, what I have left anyway !!! Any help would be great Cheers

  10. Hi, Does anyone have a reg tweak to set all images files to open in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer for all profiles i.e admin, all users and localadm ??? This is a manual process we do at the moment here as part of our reference machine before using sysprep. thanks in advance Zorg
  11. Thanks for the reply, What I am looking for is a script that will search through all *.txt files in c:\ for a txt value within the .txt file and replace it with another text value. Something like this. Within the follow 1-3.txt files I want to search and replace say "DAMREM004202" to "DAMREM004203" 1.txt DAMREM004202 FOUSAF0000022 CRDCRR000010P1 2.txt DAMREM004202 POLLH00005502 CRDCRR000010P1 3.txt DAMREM004202 DRTCA0000022 CRDCRR000010P1 Hpe this helps.

  12. Hi, Not sure if this is the best section in this forum for help. Here's hoping Looking for some help in scripting a batch file to do the following. I have a dir full of folders that contain lots of txt files. The naming conversion for the txt files are all different. The txt file contents look like this : DAMREM004202 FOUSAF0000022 CRDCRR000010P1 What I want the batch file to do is look for say "DAMREM004202" and update all the txt files that contain that reference to say "DAMREM004203" This is an application stack that we use with OSD to deploy applications. Problem we have found is when it comes to update the software to a new version we will have to update all txt files so the new software version is used if we need to rebuild the machine from OSD. Thanks for you help in advance Zorg
  13. Hi, Could you explain the above script as it is not working correctly. Cheers Zorg
  14. Our base OSD build get's updated every three months with all MS patches. We are implementing ITMU within the next three months but need to continue patching our existing estate of 15000 machines. Own dir for each patch just to make it easier to maintain. This is a copy of a standard XP.bat file. Echo off %windir%\system32\reg.exe QUERY "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Windows XP\SP3\KB923694" /v Description | %windir%\system32\find.exe "923694" && goto out %windir%\system32\reg.exe QUERY "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Outlook Express 6\SP1\KB923694-OE6SP1-20061106.120000" /v Description | %windir%\system32\find.exe "923694" && goto out %windir%\system32\reg.exe QUERY "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion" /v CSDVersion | %windir%\system32\find.exe "Service Pack 2" && goto xpsp2patch :xppatch KB923694_OE6.0sp1.exe /QUIET /NORESTART goto end :xpsp2patch KB923694_SP2.exe /QUIET /NORESTART :end %windir%\system32\reg.exe add HKLM\Software\GDS\VersionControl\PatchControl /v Reboot_Pending /t REG_SZ /d 1 /f :out %windir%\system32\xcopy.exe /Y KB923694.exe c:\smsinstall goto finish :NotReq %windir%\system32\xcopy.exe /Y KB923694NA.exe c:\smsinstall :finish These files are added for reporting purpose as our SMS server only reports on .EXE's. due to bandwith issues. %windir%\system32\xcopy.exe /Y KB923694.exe c:\smsinstall %windir%\system32\xcopy.exe /Y KB923694NA.exe c:\smsinstall
