    problem restarting

    1. Is there any way to disable showing and waiting for these 2: "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver" "Press F2 to run Automated System Recovery (ASR)..." I never used them and I will never use them. 2. I don't want to stop Imapi service but I want "Enable CD Recording on this drive" unchecked. Sometimes I install with CD Writer and/or DVD Writer connected (to power source and motherboard), sometimes disconnected (I install from USB stick). If I use this: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD Burning] "DriveIndex"=- [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD Burning] "CD Recorder Drive"="" then will it work in both situations..? I mean if a drive was connected during install, it will be unchecked; if I connect the drive later then it should stay unchecked. 3. In Tweaks >> General >> Internet Explorer I checked "Disable Outlook Express link Creation" but I still see the link in Start Menu after installation. Is it a bug..? And is there another way to disable the creation of this link..? 4. I know how to set in nlite user variables Temp and TMP but how do I change for system variables..? 5. How do I change My Documents path..? 6. How do I deactivate the creation of "Programs >> Remote Assistance" and "Programs >> Accessories >> Remote Desktop Connection" links? Later edit: 7. Is there any way to load that tweaks reg file so Windows wouldn't have to be restarted? Most of those settings need restart if the reg file is loaded during startup...

    For makecab you can create a SendTo shortcut. But you're right, cab tool is a good choice for those who frequently compress/decompress. I have tested this method of integrating the fonts update and it works fine. I have a few more questions but I think I'll wait a few days

    I will try with this program. Thank you. Later edit: virus problem - http://www.virustotal.com/file-scan/report.html?id=49cf9df8c61bd482f1a08684b898b5616d4ef7cdc29757cfe7ea2566c09e10a4-1263597939 I think it's a false positive, but I have to be 100% sure... On a already setup system I get the reboot question even if I try with /q parameter. If the update is already installed it doesn't ask (totally silent/quiet). Later later edit: the problem searching a good cab tool is solved. I remembered that years ago I found in Windows folder a tool to compress. I look for it and found it: %windir%\system32\makecab.exe. Seems to compress fine...

    On my OS always asks for reboot. -X-, your ideea is good but I need a completly "unattended" installation. Hi. With the font files I've made a Winrar sfx archive. The comment looks like this: ;The comment below contains SFX script commands Path=%windir%\Fonts SavePath Silent=1 Overwrite=1 But the problem is this: I press Ok and I get this: I guess those font files can't be overwritten not even during setup. I have another idea: how about compressing those files as *.tt_ and overwritting original font files from I386 folder? With a *.cmd I can do this before the last stage in nlite (making Iso). Is it ok..? If it is, with what program I can compress in *.tt_?

    Thank you. I downloaded the program, I did what you said and I got a cab file. In ini file: [General] builddate= description=European font update language=English (United States) title=European font update version=6.00.2800.1168 website= [EditFile] I386\SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,AddProgram [AddProgram] EUupdate.exe /Q The problem is this: Same thing is asking if it's installed normally. Maybe there is a parameter to suppress this message but I don't know where to search... "EUupdate.exe /?" is showing me 4 of them but I don't see any for this...

    Ok, this is solved Another question Is it possible to integrate these 2: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=0ec6f335-c3de-44c5-a13d-a1e7cea5ddea&DisplayLang=en http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

    Thank you. The setup works fine now After installation when I first started IE8 the desktop frozen, only Task Manager could be started: But it's not a big problem - after a reset it started fine. Later edit: I reinstalled XP and again the desktop blocked if I start IE8 right after. I'll remember to restart the computer first before using it

    Sorry, my fault. I looked only at http://win-x.co.cc/updates.html, not at your post too... Anyway, mediafire is down now, I can't even load their home page...

    problem restarting

    I tried to integrate Internet Explorer 8. I downloaded those 3 files, added them to nlite and removed the other 3. But after the first restart I got this: I pressed ok and I got the same "restart loop" as in the first post: What should I do? Last Session.ini
  10. Cosmin3

    problem restarting

    Yes, now it works fine Thank you. Anyway this is not the only nlite bug. For example if I use "Last Session.ini" (automatically/manual load or Import) most of the times not all settings are loaded. I use a clean untouched source but it's hard to set again dozens of specific settings every time I make a small change (like that one with Personalized menus). The settings that do not load are in Unattended >> Regional, Unattended >> Desktop themes, Tweaks >> Services and Options >> Patches. I set to Romanian GMT + 2, Classic theme, I deactivate Security Center and set 20 connections and next time I see English, Default theme, Security Center activated and Default.

    Thank you for your suggestion. You're right but the problem is that there are so many combinations of settings and a setup is taking about 20..30 min on my SO... In some of the screenshots that I posted here you can see that I already use VirtualBox. It's one of the best. And, yes, it's free -X-, the other registries from the reg file are loaded so the reg file is been applied.

    problem restarting

    Ok, but I was curious to know your opinion regarding this... Ok Ok, just wanted to know, no problem ... Yes, of course. I attached the reg file to see... regset.reg

    problem restarting

    Sorry but I have 3 other questions: 1. At Options >> General >> Driver cabinets Merge is disabled by default. It seems to me that combining 2 or more cabs into a single cab file is preferred. Then why is it disabled? Should I enable it..? 2. At Unattended >> Regional section in nlite what should I set to obtain this: With the current settings I obtain this: Oh, but I want to preserve these: Is it doable using nlite interface or should I have to use registry tweaks again..? 3. I deactivated "Indexing service" from Components >> Services but I still see "Allow Indexing Service to index this disk for fast file searching" in Drive C properties window (checked). If I uncheck it in this stage I have to click on "Ignore all" to skip some files + I have to wait a few minutes. Question is: how can I deactivate it completely in installation files..? Later edit: it seems that the registry tweak for "Use personalized menus" is not working - is still checked after installation

    Thank you. And sorry for not answering sooner, for 1 1/2 days my ISP was out (entire city)...

    problem restarting

    I have added the reg file. A small problem: "Use personalized menus" is checked after installation. In nlite Tweaks >> General >> Do not used Personalized menus is checked. Also I'm sure that in reg file "Use personalized menus" is not checked. What to do..? Another question: how do I deactivate System Properties >> Remote >> Allow remote assistance invitations to be sent from this computer? Initially I thought of deactivating the service(s) completly, since I never use them, But I wasn't sure it's 100% ok. What do you think..?

    problem restarting

    Ok, but: 1. Where I can find the setup log file..? 2. As you can see in the screenshot I'm using VirtualBox to test. I can't find a way to access its HDD file in the host OS. It's a vdi file. VirtualBox calls it "Dynamically expanding storage". I couldn't find any program to read its content. Last time I tried such a program I got a blue screen saying something "Windows has stopped to prevent damage...". I went to VirtualBox forum but couldn't find a solution. Thank you, I'll use this when I'll decide to slipstream it. But for now I want to know why it's not installing well. Ok, but still I would like to know how... I'll do that, thank you.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Ok, I exported those settings. The reg file is in attachment. How do I use it in nlite? Oh, another problem. Since I started using nlite I never managed to install Internet Explorer 8. It's giving this error: I tried to follow the steps from that "Internet Explorer Troubleshooting" but no luck... I attached the "Last session.ini". And a question: how do I integrate the last version of DirectX for XP? I think the last version is from June 2010... regset.reg Last Session.ini

    Seems to work fine now. Thank you. Just a few more questions: 1. I checked Tweaks >> Start Menu >> Use Small Icons in Start Panel. But I want "Use small Icons in Start Menu" for classic menu to be be checked after installation. 2. I want to deactivate StickyKeys like this: 3. Also I want that Visual Effects to be set to "best performance": How do I do these..?

    Thank you for your reply. I used Windows Updates Downloader. But you're right, some of them are not good. I'll download the updates from your site. About having 2 last session.inis: I thought nlite will continue from where it was last time but it did not...

    problem restarting

    Hi. Sorry for my english. Thank you for such an wonderful tool. I have used nlite before with no problems. This time I tried also to integrate all patches/fixes/updates that appeared after SP3. Some of them showed error messages when integrating but this is not the big problem. I tried installing in VirtualBox. After the first restart, the setup entered in a fast "restart loop". I paused the virtual machine to take a screenshot: Probably it's my fault for removing some vital component but which one..? I attached the last session files. Thank you in advance for any help. Best regards, Cosmin LS.RAR
