  1. the program agent, is it just something that autostarts? cant you just delete the shortcut from the startup folder after installation? EDIT - After taking a closer look at the distributed msi package, I realized you're probably talking about alot more than a just a shortcut. Here's an editted msi for you to try. Citrix Access Client package 4.1 This msi can be installed using the /passive switch. It will no longer reboot the computer. shark Hmmm, that still installed the program agent for me. I just used the .MSI with the /passive switch.
  2. Oh wow. Sweet! Can you tell me how you did it, just for future reference?
  3. I need to install Citrix, but don't want the Program Agent part of the program installed. Any ideas on how to do this?
  4. I start my unattended installs in BartPE and tried to think of a way to add a Dell recovery partition in. I was unable to figure out how to script the partition creation and the correct partition type (I think its D3 for dell...) If someone figures this out, it would be GREAT!
  5. What about hyper-threading? You really should be switching to the proper HAL. Here's the code I use to switch HALs. I'm sure there is a better way to detect the proper HAL than using smBIOSd.exe, but it works. ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' ' ' File: HAL.vbs ' Updated: July 2005 ' Version: 1.0 ' Author: Zac Holmes ' ' Purpose: This script is designed to run at the end of the Sysprep process.

  6. So does it work in conjuction with a 3rd party app, like Ghost?
  7. I can't be the only one who has gotten a single image working over multiple HALs, can I? Just use devcon to swap the HAL with RunOnceEx...
  8. I know this is an OLD topic, but does anyone know how to make this work with an unattended network install?
  9. I am really considering using this for our organization, but am worried about 2k to xp 'upgrades' Does anyone have an experience here, before I put a bunch of time into this thing? Good or bad, I'd love to hear what you've done with it. Thanks!

    Oracle 9i

    Ever figure this out freshy?
  11. I wish I was that fluent in C. I actually wrote it in AutoIt.
  12. Even if they were, the files associated with them are not likely to be included with the USMT scanstate...
  13. Well, in that case, please check the first post, as I updated it a little before I left on Friday. I added in some warnings if the settings aren't right in settings.ini. I suppose its possible that a virus could be moved with USMT, as it picks up Office files that may be infected. However, I'd say the chances are pretty unlikely.
  14. It seems no one is interested. Oh well, just trying to give back for all the help I've gotten here.
  15. This is one of those applications I wrote because M$ USMT tool is phenomenal for copying a user's profile from one machine to another, but has a somewhat steep learning curve. This GUI application allowed most of my techs to use the program with great ease. I included some documentation with it, but it should be pretty straight forward. Most of the USMT settings I use should work well for just about everyone. The software is designed to run on a network share, but could be configured to run on a local PC as well. I'm actually leaving work shortly, but would love to hear any questions, comments, suggestions, or concerns. Throughout all this, I've become pretty good with USMT, so feel free to ask questions about it as well. http://uselessforums.com/crap/gUSMT_v1.4.zip
  16. I think I've read that it is. I'm running an NT4 domain still, is it really off limits to me? If so, why?
  17. I need some help with winbom.ini and WinPE.chm isn't a whole lot of help. I'm looking for information on the [updateSystem] section. What is the format for CopyFiles? And SourceDisks? The reason I'm asking is that I'm trying to create an expanded Dell Utility partition with tools we use here. Thanks for any help...
  18. Actually I figured it out. As long as you load CD-ROM support (like a Win98 boot disk), then you can use bcdw.com to get back to the menu or load something else...
  19. Money, time, and office politics. LOL I'd love to see the code though, maybe I can get something running behind the scenes. How do you get the MAC address initially?
  20. I'm actually trying to get something like that setup, but it will be a couple of months. I was hoping in the meantime to be able to change the asset tag in windows. I think I have found an ugly work around tho. A Boot CD that boots into DOS, sets asset tag, then fires up PE.
