Im sorry you did not get me, I paid for the ATi card I am allowed to use that product without frequent request for my now old cd, In the ATiDec.msi I can see all the modules, what I want is to reengineer it,I know that's wrong but still I paid for it. So I just need to make a setup.exe for the msi or make changes in the msi, tried doing that but was not able to do that properly, any help would be welcome.
P.S. If you think my views violates the MSFN forum rules pls close this post
Went to this thread and pulled out my old driver cd and installed the ATI decoder, it's pretty good compared to all the commercial bloated ones, Tried the one compiled by the other guy works but the decoder is installed, but just not functional. If Anyone can help me with the .msi, I can see all the coponents it installs but just cannot create a setup file for it, cos it still keeps asking to run from setup. I running Installshield Pro 11.5 Trialware, not many days left for the trial to expire, so if anyone can help me
Please go to this page and aquaint yourself, cos this page is all about what you want to do, if you still are unable to understand let me know and I will try to make it easier for you....
Im trying to integrate the ATi drivers in to my XPUACD, and using the $OEM$ method, now the problem Im facing is that by default all the ATi drivers from Catalyst 5.6 upwards have WMV acceleration enabled by default, and since Im using Windows Media Player 9 which is not helpful to use the WMV acceleration. So I checked through the driver INF's and found some settings for my 9600 Pro Atlantis brand(RV350)

The above highlighted rows are for the WMV acceleration, but on making them 0, Windows does not recognise it and does not install the driver, anybody with any better ideas please reply......
The reason I want to do that is with WMV acceleration enabled my WMV files play in green in Windows Media Player 9 and I do not want to upgrade it to 10
Thanks for any help you may be able to provide
I am an IT administrator at my company...and I have just played around alot with the 2003 server and know a couple of tricks for ya'll...

Thanx, but I suppose I did not make myself very clear I want to know how to make the kind of disks that IBM gives with their NetVista and ThinkCentres, those are not Unattended CD's but some diffrent kind used to recvery the system again as it was on a fresh install, I maybe wrong but they definitely aren't like the UNXPCD's
I have the CD's at my office, wanted to create one for my own system.
Could anybody tell me how to make a recovery CD as the OEM companies giveout with their PC's which like reinstalls everything.
Thanks a lot.
I just had a question about this commands
DEL "%AllUsersProfile%\Start Menu\Windows Update.lnk"
DEL "%AllUsersProfile%\Start Menu\Set Program Access and Defaults.lnk"
DEL "%AllUsersProfile%\Start Menu\Windows Catalog.lnk"
Wouldn't this cause the WFC to start and start asking for the Windows CD in the middle of the installation, please do post if you have used this command successfully.
Could somebody help me with the help section and how to customise it .....
P.S. Mods pls move this to the right category just saw the OEM folders and was related so put it in here..
There seems to be an error, yesterday everything was going fine, today the media player wants to update itself, I downloads the files and then it says that the player is already update
I tried the slipstream and everything worked fine. with booogy's update pack.
However, the WMV acceleration does not seem to be working.
Using Catalyst 5.6 on 9800Pro.
Yup same here, on a 9600 PRO
Words fall short of appreciating your tool, absolutely amazing with no error messages nothing, works like a charm, thanks
Geee, thanks will do that.
Can anyone tell me how to do an unattended install of IIS during the Windows installatoin process, thanks for any help that you may be able to give...
All you really big techno geeks, I would like to all tell your one thing, you can F***ing tweak the 2003 to a workstation, but getting the games to work is really dificult, I tried it and was no brainer that some games just refuse to run, unless you reiengeer them in some way, which would void your warranty for the game, My personal 2 cents, the OS is amazing for all the things that you can do with it provided you use it as what it was meant to be used for, Terminal server, Media streaming, File server, Web server, if you just wanna play games best assured it is best done with XP
Dude, you are asking for way too much, that's gonna be really hard, take the trouble to put your stuff manually.
Seems to me also the same thing, going to do a fresh install very soon will try it out at that time and let you know if it works out fine.
Still no help, my custom theme still does not load even after specifying in the WINNT.SIF. For anybody willing to know the theme is the latest Royale theme from Media Center for XP released few days ago. You can check the attached WINNT.SIF file for details, also it doesn't get copied to where it should go.
Thanx for any help you may have
Thank you guys you have been very helpful, so Im going to go for the Vinyl's thanx for your repies
Technoguy the realtek ones never gave any error just there was some problem of hisss when doing other task when listening to music, So I stuck to the vinyl's. But then the realtek's came out with a newer version and there was no problem of hisss and was pretty good looking so I just thought of trying them. anyways will stick to vinyl's as they are easier top integrate in my $OEM$
Im trying to create a fully unattended CD with custom themes(Trying to get the Royale Theme as the default) and the drivers
The problem is that VMware 5(the new one) by default put XP in the classic mode and the drivers are also not verified since instead of using the RealTek adapter even after specifying it uses the Creative drivers.
If only anybody can help me out with the correct settings in VMware
I have a VIA Technologies, Inc. P4M266A-8235 Motherboard, with onboard sound. Now the problem is that it's a realtek sound chip(On the chip it shows the realtek logo on the mobo).
The drivers from the VIAarena site as well as drivers from the Realtek site run pretty fine. Anybody has any ideas as to which ones I should be running...
The drivers in question are the
VinlyAC97 codec and
RealTek AC97 codec
ne way of doing it is to go into Display Property where you can ajust the Wallpaper, Screensaver, etc.
Return to the Theme tab and select Save as...
Next, put this custom .theme file in $OEM$\$$\Resources\Themes
Also, add your background image in $OEM$\$$\Web\Wallpaper
Next you'll add this to your Winnt.sif
PROB | ATI DVD-Decoder
in Device Drivers
We have a lot of interesting people out here, anyways I want to rengineer the .msi and any guys with Installshield knowledge wanting to help out...
