    Batch File GUI

    That works great if the system is running. I make restore disks and no one buys one untill the computer is dead. so right now they have to give me the key and I have to manually test it with all versions. Then I found this little cmd app that does exactly what I need. I would like to package it in a nice app so I can send it to the customer and let them get the PID. Most people arent that comfortable sending me the key, and I dont blame them.

    Batch File GUI

    I have a CMD program that checks xp keys for the PID. the batch file looks like: @echo off CHKPIDS M4YRW-BMBQP-HH2CP-TG37G-Y76RM pause END and the output is: "Key","Grade","PID","Flags" "M4YRW-BMBQP-HH2CP-TG37G-Y76RM","{;OEM-CH_HOME-SP2-37973878;}","(55274-OEM-0011903-00584)","[;OEM;OEM-]" Press any key to continue . . . I want to make a GUI that will ask for the key: M4YRW-BMBQP-HH2CP-TG37G-Y76RM, and output just the PID: 55274-OEM-0011903-00584
  3. Ok, hijacking my own thread. I am using task kill and its working great untill I tried to use it on home. First I copyed taskkill to the home installer. now runonceex starts after the last task kill. So it only installs the apps after that last taskkill.
  4. I want to set the shell to silent launch. But I only want to set one user to it. I have auto login setup but I was wondering if the current user key will work during the runonceex. is the login after runonceex the first login?
  5. i am using a runonceex file and it works great. but there are a few programs that launch after they install. and also some errors that come up but only on the install. on my system they install fine. internal, expression, runtime error. task kill would work if I had the task name. is there any other way to kill the last started task? or any task that isint in a list?

    Text Mode Silent?

    ah, cool I had gone through the guide but I missed that. thank you!
  7. Arent the NTOSKRNL.exe and NTKRNL__.exe different files? I have NTOSKRNL.exe and ntkrnlpa.exe (I have a P4 with HT and LESS that 3GB but its what I have anyway.)

    Custom Boot screen with XP CD

    cmdlines.txt dosent work. Also when I use the TUKernel.exe on another computer it freezes at the boot screen. any ideas?

    Custom Boot screen with XP CD

    ok I have used bootcfg to edit it. Using the raw switch. bootcfg /raw "/Kernel=TUKernel.exe" ID 1 Now when should I run this? I have a runonceex but you would see the normal boot screen once. I would like to do it before that. would it work in the cmdlines.txt?
  10. I have gotton the boot screen changed with tune up using the TUKernel.exe and changing the boot.ini. Now I want to embed this in my installer. I can copy the file over fine. thats easy but I cant find a deffinate answer for changing the boot.ini file. I know it is made durring the install (around T-9 I think) and I have seen a few methods of editing the file but none do quite what I want. all I really need to do is a kernel=tukernel.exe to the end

    Text Mode Silent?

    I am talking about the text mode. where you select what partition to install on and format it.
  12. What do you mean check the silent switches? They all work and install silent, but some start the program after installing. Is there anywhere that lists all possible switches for each installer?
  13. I want to make the text mode of the install silent. I realize this would make a disk that formats without asking but it would be useful. My goal is a disk that can be inserted and fully install windows with only the press any key to boot. So far the only thing left is the text mode. Maybe just get rid of the raid question.
  14. Actually Utorrent wont install silent. Smart Defrag, Game Booster, advance system care, Google Chrome, and Picasa all auto start
  15. I have a runonceex setup but several applications start after they install and it clutters things up and I think caused an error. This is the file: cmdow @ /HID @echo off SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Applications (cmd " /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "7 Zip" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\7-Zip.exe /S" /f REG ADD %KEY%\006 /VE /D "Smart Defrag" /f REG ADD %KEY%\006 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\defragsetup.exe /Silent" /f REG ADD %KEY%\007 /VE /D "Game Booster" /f REG ADD %KEY%\007 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\gamebooster.exe /Silent" /f REG ADD %KEY%\096 /VE /D "Adobe Reader" /f REG ADD %KEY%\096 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\AdobeReader.exe /msi EULA_ACCEPT=YES /qn" /f REG ADD %KEY%\015 /VE /D "Advance System Care" /f REG ADD %KEY%\015 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\ASC.exe /Silent" /f REG ADD %KEY%\020 /VE /D "Google Chrome" /f REG ADD %KEY%\020 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\chrome.exe /S" /f REG ADD %KEY%\025 /VE /D "Direct X" /f REG ADD %KEY%\025 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\DirectX.exe /Q" /f REG ADD %KEY%\035 /VE /D "Flash Player" /f REG ADD %KEY%\035 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\FP10.exe /S" /f REG ADD %KEY%\040 /VE /D "Google Earth" /f REG ADD %KEY%\040 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\GoogleEarth.exe /S/v/qn /V"/qb"" /f REG ADD %KEY%\045 /VE /D ".NET 3.5" /f REG ADD %KEY%\045 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\net35.exe /Q" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /VE /D "Microsoft Silverlight" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\silverlight.exe /Q" /f REG ADD %KEY%\055 /VE /D "Picasa" /f REG ADD %KEY%\055 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Picasa.exe /S" /f REG ADD %KEY%\060 /VE /D "Skype" /f REG ADD %KEY%\060 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Skype.exe /Silent" /f REG ADD %KEY%\074 /VE /D "uTorrent" /f REG ADD %KEY%\074 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\uTorrent.exe /S" /f REG ADD %KEY%\080 /VE /D "VLC Media Player" /f REG ADD %KEY%\080 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\VLC.exe /S" /f REG ADD %KEY%\085 /VE /D "VSO Image Resizer" /f REG ADD %KEY%\085 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\VSO.exe /Silent" /f REG ADD %KEY%\090 /VE /D "XBox Media Center" /f REG ADD %KEY%\090 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\xbmc10.exe /S" /f REG ADD %KEY%\095 /VE /D "Image Burner" /f REG ADD %KEY%\095 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\ImgBurn.exe /S" /f REG ADD %KEY%\100 /VE /D "Cleaning Up and Rebooting" /f REG ADD %KEY%\100 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\cleanup.cmd" /f EXIT Any idea what switches would stop that?
