  1. HELP, please. Here's what I got so far XP Corp Gold Slipstreamed SP3 (5512 official release) When I run WMP11 Integrator with all the hotfixes I have the following issues.. 1) The Winnt.sif settings for [Display] do not work - first boot defaults to 640x800 2) Upon first login I get the following popup Title = "Advanced INF Install" Text = "Error creating process <C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\WMPEnc.exe /RegServer>. Reason: The system cannot find the file specified" If I click OK and go to "C:\program files\Windows Media Player" there are only 11 files and 2 Folders for a total of 3.5MB Info : The SP3 install without WMP11 works fine Thank you Bryan
  2. Not that I know of. Is there something else you would like added?
  3. Have you taken a look at WAIT? (shameless plug )
  4. version 03 is now posted at the forums version 03 ------------ 1) Fixed UI issue. "Workgroup" is the only static text greyed out 2) Added a "Stop Timer" button (if you have a timer set). This way you do not need to "beat the clock" to make entries.
  5. Version 02 is now out. Here are the updates Version 02 ------------ Added an INI file for configuration. It has the following items under the [CONFIG] section AutoTimeout - How many seconds before automatically clicking the OK button NewUser - If 1 will automatically check the "Create New User" box NewUserID - will fill in the "UserID" edit box of the "Create New User" group NewUserPassword - will fill in the "Password" edit box of the "Create New User" group NewUserInAdminGroup - If 1 will put the new UserID in the Administrators group NewUserAutoLogin - If 1 will set the new UserID to automatically login on the next reboot EditAdmin - If 1 will automatically check the "Edit Administrator USer" box AdminPassword - will fill in the "Password" edit box of the "Edit Administartor User" group AdminAutoLogin - If 1 will set the Administartor to automatically login on the next reboot EditComputer - If 1 will automatically check the "Edit Computer Settings" box Owner - Will fill in the "Owner" edit box with this text Org= - Will fill in the "Organization" edit box with this text WorkgroupName - Will fill in the "Workgroup" edit box with this text ComputerName - Will fill in the "Computer Name" edit box with this text - If you set Autotimeout and all the NewUser fields of the ini file then you can stop using scripts to create the new user (usually using net user) and autologin (making registry edits to autologin said user). - If you only set "Autotimeout" then when the timer runs out the application will do nothing. This will allow you to have WISCON in your unattended install and if you do not want to enter new information then nothing will happen. This gives you total flexability.
  6. Yes and no. Actually, if you put this in your CMDLINES.TXT file it will run at T+11. So it's not "after you install" but actually PART of an install (or at least that is how I use it). In this manner you can build you UA CD (with admin password and machine name) configured the way you like to install on your machines, but if you ever use the CD to help someone else, you can enter the information when WISCON runs and it will be configured the way the person you are helping wants it. Of course can CAN run it whenever you want. That's just how I use it.
  7. Have you burned your unattended DVD with all the works? Have you wanted to use it on someone elses machine but all the initial settings were how you wanted it to work on your machine. For example the Administrators password, the Initial user login ID, the workgroup and computer name. Well if you answered yes to any of these question you want to check out WISCON. WISCON is the Windows Initial System CONfigurator. You can get it Here (from the makers of WAIT)
  8. The new webhost is up and running. You can now find the WAIT forums at http://zsoftware.net/forums/default.asp Thank you Bryan
  9. Sorry for the delay in response (I watch the zsoftware forums more than this thread). A new version should be out by weeks end (AKA Sunday). I also had to move the domain as my hosting service seemed to have gone AWAL. So you probably cannot get to the site either. A lot is going on - hopefully all the moving pieces come together by Sunday
  10. Ben, I am working on your bug report as well as your request. I have been having the same problem as you. When using WAIT with CMDLINES.TXT it puts all the lines in the registry, but nothing installs. Personally, I have only been using the internal installer and GUIRUNONE. This has worked with no issues. And, using the internal installer gives you some advantages (logging and timeout's). As soon as I figure out what's going on with the CMDLINES.TXT issue I will post a new version. I am also working on a setup guide. Thank you for your support Bryan
  11. The solution to your problem is posted on the WAIT forums. Let me know how it goes. Thank you
  12. version 21 is up to address your bug. You know where to find it
  13. I just make updates to the registry. Seems that silent installs update "HKCU" and non silent update "HKLM". Therefore: For Desktop Manager RegDelete ("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\CLSID\{709C6E11-538F-4759-86AC-6ACB302AA0DE}") RegWrite ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{709C6E11-538F-4759-86AC-6ACB302AA0DE}","","REG_SZ","Desktop Manager") RegWrite ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{709C6E11-538F-4759-86AC-6ACB302AA0DE}\Implemented Categories","","REG_SZ","") RegWrite ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{709C6E11-538F-4759-86AC-6ACB302AA0DE}\Implemented Categories\{00021492-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}","","REG_SZ","") RegWrite ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{709C6E11-538F-4759-86AC-6ACB302AA0DE}\InprocServer32","","REG_SZ","K:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\msvdm.dll") RegWrite ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{709C6E11-538F-4759-86AC-6ACB302AA0DE}\InprocServer32","ThreadingModel","REG_SZ","Apartment") for Magnifier RunWait ( $CDROM & '\\Apps\\SystemUtilities\\POWERTOYS\\' & $TITLE1 & '.exe /s /v/qn' ) RegDelete ("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\CLSID\{B48A93BC-5E8D-472B-8FE2-E53302C4548C}") RegWrite ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B48A93BC-5E8D-472B-8FE2-E53302C4548C}","","REG_SZ","Taskbar Magnifier") RegWrite ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B48A93BC-5E8D-472B-8FE2-E53302C4548C}\Implemented Categories\{00021492-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}","","REG_SZ","") RegWrite ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B48A93BC-5E8D-472B-8FE2-E53302C4548C}\InprocServer32","","REG_SZ","K:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\mag.dll") RegWrite ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B48A93BC-5E8D-472B-8FE2-E53302C4548C}\InprocServer32","ThreadingModel","REG_SZ","Apartment") for SlideShow RegWrite ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{EFB97CB8-a4a4-4357-a261-002FFAED0267}","","REG_SZ","CD Burn Slideshow Hook") RegWrite ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{EFB97CB8-a4a4-4357-a261-002FFAED0267}\InprocServer32","","REG_SZ","K:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\slideshow.dll") RegWrite ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{EFB97CB8-a4a4-4357-a261-002FFAED0267}\InprocServer32","ThreadingModel","REG_SZ","Apartment") RegDelete ("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\CLSID\{EFB97CB8-a4a4-4357-a261-002FFAED0267}" ) The others work fine you juse need to create a shortcut to them in the "All Users" start menu.
  14. There is now a section on the Wait forums for discussions around AutoIt. Come on over and take a look. Bryan
  15. This only happens of the item is not only hidden but also installed. This is also by design. It the item is installed then there is no way you should be allowed to install something that it "Excludes" Make sense?
  16. This was by design - you can select an already installed item therefore allowing it to be re-installed. I thought the DoNotInstallAlreadyInstalledApps flag was too restricting. You can accomplish the same thing by detecting that it's installed and also putting the same file checks into the "Hide if" section. This will hide already installed app therefore making it impossible to select it and reinstalling it. Not sure about this one. I will start digging into the code. I think (thought) this could not happen. I will look into this as well thank you
  17. Correction - version 0.19 is now up at The WAIT Forums Version 0.19 -------- 1) InstalledIf If checked, WAIT will look for the files you list. If all the files are found then it is assumed to be installed (If you but a dash in front of a file ("-c:\test.txt") then it will make sure that a file does NOT exist) Example 1: c:\test.txt d:\test.txt If both files exist then the item is assumed to be installed Example 2: c:\test.txt -d:\test.txt if c:\test.txt exists AND d:\test.txt does NOT exist then the item is assumed to be installed 2) HideIf If checked, WAIT will look for the files you list. If all the files are found then the item is Hidden (not shown on the WAIT screen) (If you but a dash in front of a file ("-c:\test.txt") then it will make sure that a file does NOT exist) Example 1: c:\test.txt d:\test.txt If both files exist then the item is Hidden Example 2: c:\test.txt -d:\test.txt if c:\test.txt exists AND d:\test.txt does NOT exist then the item is hidden 3) LimitOS - This will allow you to select on which O/S's this item can be installed. 4) moved some of the options around 5) rewrite of the options read/write code - more efficent / easier to add options 6) Added "Copy" to items page This will create a copy of an item to more easily allow you to add items to the list 7) Added Sort button. Sort options are A-Z - Alaphabetical 1-n - Order sorted {CAT} - Sort by catagory This will not change the items are displayed in WAIT, but makes it eaiser to work on the items 8) Added UID to the item page - This will allow you to set up your own UID's for items 9) Added "Hide Un-installable items" to the options page. This will automatically hide items when: 1) A "required" item is hidden and NOT installed 2) An "excluded" item is already installed
  18. Sorry to hear that as that's where I check the most. Wait until you see version 0.19 - many new added features. You're quite welcome Yes I found this too - fixed in version 0.19 - should be out before the end of the week
  19. Version 18 is now up. You can download it from the WAIT forums version .18 ------------- 1) Added - Hover over a custom select button and all the items that would be installed are changed to the Highlight Text color. 2) Added "DisableIfInstalled" and "DisableIfInstalledFileName" for each item. This will allow you to enter a filename to find. If the file is found then WAIT will mark the item as "installed" 3) Added "DoNotInstallAlreadyInstalledApps" flag. This will stop WAIT from installing any item that is detemined to have already been installed (See #2) 4) Added "Already installed" to the popup text 5) Added "Already Installed" replacement text.
  20. Version 0.17 is now up on the Wait Forums version .17 ------------- 1) Added color buttons to the config program. Now you can see the colors on the color selection tab 2) Added Enable Logging. This will toggle the logging feature of the program (Remember that logging only works with the built in installer - just like the timeout feature) 3) Major rewrite of the install code (internal installer). There is a issue with application that use a older version of InstallShield. They would take a VERY long time to start (sometimes over 20 minutes). This is now corrected. 4) Fixed a number of "bugs" with the drawing of custom buttons.
