  1. Faster load time with IE7 installed on system. White screen shows for a long time before the wpi screen comes up. Dennis
  2. I currently use virtualdub to join all my avi and mpeg files but cannot find a good program that can handle wmv files. I do not want to re encode the files, just piece them together into a single file as the video and audio are identical. Any suggestions? Dennis
  3. I tried adding the autologon.reg to my cmdlines.txt and it does try to autologon Dennis, but I get an error "The system could not log you on...." etc I also see that the Administrator account was created?!?!?! wtf Dennis
  4. I prefer to get the oobeinfo process working as it worked before. it does not matter what number command you use, I have it at 9 because I always want this command last. I can slip in other commands easy this way. Thanks for the suggestion, but I am not looking for another way to do this. Dennis
  5. I cannot seem to get my oobeinfo.ini working again. I had this working in the past and now it seems to be ignored. I want to create a single account "Dennis" and have this account replace the administrator account. I do NOT want the administrator account created at all. When I go to documents and settings I only want to see a folder Dennis and All Users. Here is what I have OOBEINFO.INI file is located in $OEM$\$$\system32\oobe\OOBEINFO.INI my winnt.sif For some reason I cannot figure out the Administrator account is still being created and the Dennis account is not be created. Any thoughts on what is causing this? Dennis
  6. I am trying to build a clean autoit script for nero that will install only the following 5 components: nero start smart nero burning rom nero express nero vision nero recode However, I cannot clean my current install of nero 7 out of my system. I have uninstalled it fine, I deleted nero and ahead from program files. I cleaned out the registry from HKLM, I deleted the temp files. I even deleted the ahead and nero folders from documents and settings. I download all 5 clean tools from nero's site and ran them. I have rebooted. NOW WTF is the serial number still showing up when I do a manual install? Where the hell is nero hiding its crap that the serial number is auto put into the serial field and it even knows what applications I chose to install manually before. I could just reformat but this is p***ing me off. I cannot stand it when an install leaves its crap all over the system. Any help would be appreciated. Dennis
  7. INCEXCFTR (2FF8B816) (Actions) NeroHome INCLUDE INCEXCFTR (2FF8B816) (Features) NeroHome INCLUDE Interesting, has to be a simple syntax fix then, just no idea on how to do it. We definately need BoardBabe's help. Dennis
  8. What would really be appreciated is a silent installer that includes everything except the following: Nero Scout Nero Home Nero PhotoSnap Nero PhotoSnap Viewer Nero MediaHome InCD Nero ShowTime Nero BackItUp Nero SoundBox Now that the old 'AutoIt Script' for nero 7 no longer works for the latest nero release such a installer would really be very usefull for a lot of people for whom space is not issue but the presence of certain nero features is. Specially the crappy Nero Scout and Nero Showtime. Maybe you cna just guide us as to how we can make such an installer. Thanks, Sanjay I also second that! Dennis
  9. bummers, still no response on this script? Anyone willing to share their own autoit script that works for I cannot seem to figure out why the script stopped working, been playing with it for a few hours. Odd. Dennis
  10. Just upgraded to the new 4.3.5 version and would like to offer the following suggestions: 1. If you use exclusions (excl) then the multi check does not work properly. It will check all and the excl will not be selected as it should but you cannot click the multi again to uncheck everything in that category. Instead you have to use uncheck all to remove the checks. It would be ideal if when checking the multi it would check all but the excl but still show a check in the multi box and when you remove the check it removes all checks from that category. 2. I have so many entries now in my wpi that it loads very slow. It would be nice to implement a select box similar to the configs choices that would load a seperate config.js file. For instance I made a full page of regsitry changes that would be ideal for a seperate config.js file. When I wanted registry choices in wpi I could just select another config.js file and wpi would load that file. This way wpi would load quicker as it would not need to scan through one huge config.js file. Dennis
  11. Anyone seen this before? When I go to burn my CD nero complains and says it needs to rename these 3 files in the \i386\WinSxS\Manifests folder x86_policy.5.1.Microsoft.Windows.SystemCompatible_6595b64144ccf1df_5.1.2600.2000_x-ww_e037a8a.Manifest x86_policy.6.0.Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls_6595b64144ccf1df_6.0.2600.2180_x-ww_eb84b25e.Manifest x86_policy.7.0.Microsoft.Windows.CPlusPlusRuntime_6595b64144ccf1df_7.0.2600.2180_x-ww_cf5111a1.Manifest It says it has to rename the files to be compatible with the cd file system. I am using nero ultra I am using cdshell as the boot loader and have several .igz .img floppy images, INSERT, and ubcd for windows. These are the settings I am using for nero Dennis
  12. I think I have everything solved now but your quote above. What do you mean by corel key place? Dennis
  13. use a reg file? I fail to see how that would prevent these two items from being installed? I use reg files to config options post install but not sure how it can prevent something from installing? Am I missing something? Dennis
  14. I was able to do an admin install which asked for the serial, it accepted it fine and a silent install worked using the the files made from the admin install. I used msiexec /i pspx.msi /qb However, I would like to make a silent install that does not install the thumbnail and browse with paint shop options. During a manual install you can uncheck these, but how do you not install these for an unattended install? Dennis
  15. wow, talk about using a sledge hammer to kill a fly. Keep it simple. This is how I do it. Call install.cmd from winnt.sif [GuiRunOnce] command9= "%SystemDrive%\install.cmd" install.cmd located in $OEM$\$1 @ECHO OFF rem find the CDROM letter ... for %%i in (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: rem copies i386 to hard drive ... ECHO Please wait, source files are being copied. This may take several minutes. xcopy %CDROM%\i386\*.* %SystemDrive%\Support\i386\ /e /i /h /y rem adds source location for i386 to registry ECHO Adding registry entries. reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup" /v "Installation Sources" /t REG_MULTI_SZ /d "%SystemDrive%\Support\i386" /f reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup" /v SourcePath /d %SystemDrive%\Support /f reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup" /v ServicePackSourcePath /d %SystemDrive%\Support /f reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion" /v SourcePath /d %SystemDrive%\Support\I386 /f rem runs cleanup script start %cdrom%\install\cleanup.cmd exit install.cmd
  16. I see this error every now and then and cannot seem to track it down. I am using the latest wpi 3.5.1 downloaded a few days ago. any ideas? Dennis
  17. I have CAT files for all the hotfixes that the integrated switch worked for, but for the non hotfixes and ones that integrate does not work, where do you get the CAT file? For instance the CAT files for these (KB885835 and KB885250) Dennis
  18. ahhh, the light is starting to flicker. OK so make another chalk mark on your board for another poster who did not read all 15 pages thourough enough. Can you add that reg entry to the front page just like you did for KB873374 -› Microsoft GDI+ Detection Tool Download -› 216 KB (September 21, 2004) Switches: KB873374.exe /Q:A /R:N (HALT BOX) import this registry setting instead: REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\GdiDetectionTool" /v "GDITool" /t REG_DWORD /d "00000001" /f Like this *** NEW *** KB890830 -› Microsoft® Windows® Malicious Software Removal Tool V1.2 Download -› 256 KB (March 8, 2005) Switches: KB890830.exe /q (cannot use the /integrate; option) import this registry setting instead: REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\RemovalTools\MRT" /v "Version" /t REG_SZ /d "F8327EEF-52AA-439A-9950-CE33CF0D4FDD" /f I think this will solve a lot of the confusion. Dennis
  19. Which reg tweak are you refering to? I feel like an id*** here, why am I not getting this? Or did I join the conversation way to late to get the picture. The only reg tweak I have is REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\GdiDetectionTool" /v "GDITool" /t REG_DWORD /d "00000001" /f and as far as I know at this point it has NOTHING at all to do with KB890830. That reg tweak is to deal with KB873374 not KB890830. If I am wrong then this thread needs some work for those trying to figure this out who came late to the party. And I am still confused about KB885835, I did another clean XP SP2 test and applied my list of updates and KB885835 worked this time but then another update gave that error I posted in a screen shot above. arrrrgh! Dennis
  20. Ryan, I have read that answer many times about this being answered many times. But the point is it is still not clear. The only reg add I see on the front page is for this Are you saying that that registry entry also takes care of KB890830? And what about KB885835? Any ideas why I am seeing that error? Is there a certain order that the updates need to be integrated in? Sorry for the hassel on this for the probably 100th time you have seen it, but if people are still asking this, then the many posts on it are still confusing. If there is a reg entry for KB890830 and it is the same for KB873374 then lets add that line to the KB890830, because at the moment the front page for KB890830 does not mention a reg add it only says cannot use integrate, which left me thinking ok so then what? Dennis
  21. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong trying to integrate KB885835 when I run this C:\XPCD-SP2Updates\WindowsXP-KB885835-x86-ENU.exe /integrate:C:\ZZXPCD I get this error Also I seem to have integrated all the updates but as many have posted on this thread I am having issues with KB885835 KB890830 I am still confused after reading for a few hours on these two. It would be nice if there were instructions on the ones that do not work with /integrate swith right on the front page here. It is frustrating to spend hours searching the thread if someone has already gone through the pain and solved it. If the answer is already posted somewhere can someone show me where I missed it? Here is what my svcpack.inf looks like: [CatalogHeader] [Version] BuildNumber=2600 MinorVersion=1 MajorVersion=5 Signature="$WINDOWS NT$" [SetupData] CatalogSubDir="\I386\svcpack" [SetupHotfixesToRun] KB890047.exe /q /n /z KB888302.exe /q /n /z KB888113.exe /q /n /z KB887742.exe /q /n /z KB886185.exe /q /n /z KB885836.exe /q /n /z KB885626.exe /q /n /z KB885250.exe /q /n /z KB873339.exe /q /n /z KB873333.exe /q /n /z KB867282.exe /q /n /z KB890830.exe /q KB890175.exe /q /n /z KB891781.exe /q /n /z [ProductCatalogsToInstall] KB890047.cat KB888302.cat KB888113.cat KB887742.cat KB886185.cat KB885836.cat KB885626.cat KB885250.cat KB873339.cat KB873333.cat KB867282.cat KB890175.cat KB891781.cat I finally added KB890830.exe /q manually and put the file in my svcpack folder. Dennis
  22. Yeah no go here either. If I remove the entire sound driver pack then the error of course goes away. So now I am moving on to just getting the unattended to load, for some reason when I use your driver packs my unattended installs, even extracts the driver packs, runs my copy i386 script to hard drive then on the last reboot just reboots over and over and over saying windows did not load on the previous attempt and gives me the option to use safe mode. Neither safe mode or boot normally work. If I remove all the driver packs and replace them with a few drivers I built on my own windows loads up fine. So now I am removing all packs and going to try one at a time to find the one messing things up for me. Dennis
  23. Just read through this entire post, looks like the issue that will never die. In any case. I got the same error on an IBM ThinkCentre 8183-RU3 I am using method 2 I updated the bios to latest greatest from IBM website and that did not solve the issue. I am using the latest driverpacks downloaded 3 days ago. I also re did my entire unattended xp cd from scratch. So it appears the real cause of this problem has not been found? I assume the next step is to remove the R folder from sound\dp\s\r? Dennis
  24. Soulin, Can you explain further how to do this using wmi? Do you have a script that is working that you can share? Seems like a better way to go. Dennis
  25. Nevermind, I think I found the problem. The code is wrong and someone has probably already told hasi by now but the cmd file is wrong for the pathing. There should be no \ after %WPIPATH% since %WPIPATH% already includes. Currently the resulting code was trying to import the reg file using this path regedit /S "%WPIPATH%\common\wpi.reg" which in turn translates to this so the double quote after wpi was causing it to fail. Same with cmdow. Dennis
