  1. Newbie need a little help

    Right where the poster said it was. http://unattended.msfn.org/global/files/MSFN_UnattendPDF.exe
  2. April Patches

    Did you add the following registry entry? [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\RemovalTools\MRT] "Version"="805647C6-E5ED-4F07-9E21-327592D40E83" <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Isn't this entry for tricking the WU, so it won't be installed? when I XPCREATEd version 1.1 of this hotfix it word perfectly... <{POST_SNAPBACK}> You can do just the registry entry. But on my build, with the software installed, it still shows in WU, even with the April version.

    I don't use XPlode, so that may be the reason why.

    That one should work fine in SVC-HF1. Or, you can integrate it into your source using the /integrate switch.

    SVC-EXE is where mine is.
  7. New Updates are coming soon

    Shouldn't be that big of a deal to figure out where they go. Drop 'em somewhere, test it out, and post results. Makes GM's job a little easier.
  8. How to get it right?!

    I think I'll give GM the benefit of the doubt and not speculate why he doesn't respond back. Seems like everyone else should as well, since HE did go through the trouble to update the previous version of XPC, while maintaining a life at the same time. @ GM: take your time, bro. We'll still be here.
  9. Xpcreate.ini: Copysource

    Used for creating the CD. The files are copied to the HDD during the blue screen portion of Setup.
  10. Question About Replacing Files On Xpcreate

    You put the files in FILESCD. XPC does not. Seems that point is getting lost somewhere in the translation.
  11. Question About Replacing Files On Xpcreate

    QCHAIN is used to chain multiple patches together. It is not needed if using XPC, since it does its own thing with them, unless you have to run them on the first logon. You aren't being specific on the exactl files, but again, anything in the FILESCD is what you put in there.
  12. Question About Replacing Files On Xpcreate

    FILESCD is used for users to place files they will need. For instance, in FILESCD\I386, you would find the winnt.sif file, which is only updated by the user. Other locations, i.e. $OEM$\xxx are done by the user as well. XPCREATE does not verify if one file is newer than the other. It just copies them over during the process. To sum it up, users need to check version dates. XPC does not do it for you.

    What method do you use to install your .msi files?
  14. messenger 5

    Wrap the .msi file in iexpress and place in SVC-EXE. Simple as that. The command line for iexpress setup is msiexec /qn /i messenger.msi If you are using the file from the 5.1 download link in this thread.
  15. Win Inst 3.0 (kb884016)

    Type msiexec /? from a RUN line and look at the top of the options. It will list the version. I am currently running 3.01.4000.1207, which is the RC for 3.1. It is placed in SVC-HF1 and works fine.
  16. Picasa 2 Silent Install?

    /S is not allowing unattended. Try again.

    I used this site to learn layers: http://www.projectseven.com/tutorials/imag...ntage/index.htm For general tutorials, use Google: http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=mozc...eworks+tutorial

    Once you learn the basics, you can create little gems like mine in no time at all. It took me over an hour to do my first.
  19. Win2k Dos Mode Install Error

    If possible, burn the CD, and then mount it in VMWare. Test it there. If it works, go for it. If not, reburn at lower speeds, and remount. This is how I do it on my machine at home.
  20. Updated Windows Media Player 10

    It was posted here, but not everyone goes to that part of the site, myself included. Surprised I didn't get notified through email subscription to MS.
  21. Updated Windows Media Player 10

    Microsoft updated Media Player 10 somewhat quietly and unobtrusively as well. For Windows XP SP1 & SP2 Version D/L Link: LINK For XPCTHLST Lists: ADD SVC-WMP\mp10setup.exe http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/2/a/12a31f29-2fa9-4f50-b95d-e45ef7013f87/MP10Setup.exe E57645C5AB34485D56D019AAA17C3150
  22. Cd Is Too Large

    Try this for sliiming down the source: http://unattended.msfn.org/advanced/space_saving_tips.htm You might also try nLite against the source as well, to remove items you will not need. nLite has its own forum on this board, under Member Contributed Projects.
  23. No Svc Folders (new Version)

    Thanks, BZ. I ended up creating the folders based on GM's site, but wanted to ask the question anyways, in case I wasn't the only one. I originally was going to handle it through the mail lists, and wait to see if GM was going to open this forum up to both versions. But, since it appears that it has, I'll know to use it in the future. Now, to get my hotfix lists together for use locally.
  24. No Svc Folders (new Version)

    GM, Seems the ner version that you sent me the link for is not creating the SVC and other folders. It goes straight to finding the boot record, which of course it does not find. Any ideas? The zipped up logfile was sent to the mailing list for thoughts.

    No point in reinventing the wheel.
