Windows Installer 4.5 KB942288 integration problem
Nexi replied to Nexi's topic in Unattended Windows 2000/XP/2003I solved the problem for now by fooling the KB942288 installer into thinking that it is running in english-language XP. Here are the instructions that I used: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/12/14/t...guage-editions/
I'm trying to integrate WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe to English-language Windows XP Professional with SP3. I'm using Finnish-language Windows XP as my build machine and based on logs and extracted files it might be the reason of this problem. KB942288 contais version for all languages and it seems that it's extracting finnish-language version and tries to integrate that. 0.625: IsUpdateInfValidForTarget: Lang mismatch in l:\3aa5633d73576bb85b1177\update\update_SP3QFE.inf: b != 9. 0.625: IntegrateHotfix: Package KB942288-v3 is not valid for target E:\VX2POEM_EN. (b is language code for finnish) I tried to extract update and manually run english version, but that didn't work: "Extracted packages cannot be integrated. The /integrate switch must be used with the original software update package" Any idea for solution?
Nexi replied to MrCobra's topic in Windows XPAfter offline SP3 install my C:\WINDOWS\$hf_mig$ folder still contais all previous post SP2 update KBXXXXX folders. Normally you are advised not to delete those. What about now when SP3 is installed does the system need these anymore?
Vista unatended settings.
Nexi replied to madbull's topic in Unattended Windows Vista/Server 2008To specify users folder location insert the following code into your Autounattend.xml. If you are not familiar with Autounattend.xml read some tutorial first. The partition you use must exist and be formatted. <settings pass="oobeSystem"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" processorArchitecture="x86"> <FolderLocations> <ProfilesDirectory>D:\Users</ProfilesDirectory> </FolderLocations> </component> </settings> What comes to Program Files folder location I have understood that there is no working solution for that currently (at least not in the realm of Autounattend.xml)
Is it possible to change location of Windows/Installer folder
Nexi replied to Nexi's topic in Unattended Windows 2000/XP/2003I'm talking about changing default location of folder which is C:\WINDOWS\Installer (note that the folder is hidden by default) after normal Windows installation. Now if you use many programs this folder grows very large since it contains third party Installers and Software Patches. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Installer for details. I use the following partitioning scheme and instead of having C:\WINDOWS\Installer I would like to have D:\Installer C: Windows D: Programs (Program Files default location is set to here) E: Users (Documents and Settings default location is set to here)
Is there any tweak that can be used to change location of WINDOWS/Installer folder?
Get rid of Outlook Express
Nexi replied to Nexi's topic in Software HangoutOk, I totally missed this section. Looks ok in my Notepad. Do you mean that line breaks are messed up or is there wrong characters? Notepad should not be problem if batch runs in Windows XP cmd interpreter. But if someone knows if there is foolproof character encoding that works with Windows XP cmd interpreter (and notepad) let me know. Edit: I think the problem was FTP ascii transfer that messed up the file. It should work now.
