  1. i've never ever seen such a thing, i'm using flashget since v .3. my files never got overwritten, simple (1) is appended...and i didn't mess with that rename option, so its using the defaults...

    Yes... this is how it used to work for me but I've made so many changes recently that I'm not sure how to wind back. I'm wondering if it may be because I'm using Firefox and the 'Flashgot' extension. :unsure:

    Oh well... maybe I'll start by winding Flashget back a few versions.

  2. From Flasget help...

    If destination file exists

    When downloading, you might find yourself downloading two different files with the same file name. Here you can choose whether FlashGet should Overwrite, Auto Rename or Stop the download.

    I have this option set to 'Auto Rename' but if ever I try to download an updated version of a prog that has the same filename as a previous version, already download with Flashget, I'm always presented with this dialog...


    ... and no matter which option I choose, the original file awlays gets overwritten.

    Even if I rename the download here...


    ... the new dowload is renamed but still overwrites the original.

    Has anyone else seen this behavior and have a fix for it, or does anyone know for which previous version of Flashget this works?


  3. RunOnceEx executes on the first login :rolleyes:

    [slapForhead]****... being a noob I shoulda known that! [/slapForehead]

    » Summary

    To summarize, RunOnceEx.cmd will be executed during the GUI-mode of Windows XP Setup at the T-12 Minute stage. This however does NOT mean that your programs will install. After reboot and first logon, RunOnceEx will start as shown here, and begin installing your programs.

  4. I have made a working basic 'RunOnceEx from CD' iso that creates administrator and autologon accounts and installs a few regtweaks.

    During setup I notice a couple of command windows briefly appear around T-13(T-12.5), but I dont see the "Installing Applications" window during setup.

    Example from how-to guide...


    It's not that it's a problem as such, just that I thought I'd see it around the time my regtweaks are imported.

    My uA setup...



    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    Of course, non of the above is mine... just cut&paste from examples, but if anyone can point out any errors I've made, that'd be great.

    Thanks guys.

  5. My regtweaks.reg

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International\Geo]
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Preload]
    "Max Cached Icons"="2000"

    1 & 2 work but 3,4 & 5 dont. :(

    I tried searching for a solution and found this link...


    I don't think leads where it should but I know some some areas of the guide are currently unavailable.

    Anyone set me compass please? :)

  6. why r u emulating?

    just install it to a 1-2gb virtual disk. then use the shared folders or add the hdd's later when u have windows installed, this way less chance of any errors.

    why do u want to see all your hdd in that list anyways?

    I'm sending 'prog files' and 'docs & settings' to different drives and want to ensure that I don't screw up on the drive letters.

    Should I expect not to see all physical drives? I just assumed that I would see a screen similar to that in the first image.

  7. [quote name='kmf' date='Aug 30 2004, 12:50 AM']Am I the only one here that uses DC++?
    Nope! :thumbup
    BCDC++ being choice of client though.

    Azureus for bittorrent but I lost interest in torrents after Supernova took a dive.
    Anyone know of any good sources for tv series (specially Enterprise :whistle: )?

  8. This is what I see when performing a clean install on my box...


    Sorry about the quality but you can just make out 3 drives, the first has 1 pimary extended with 2 logical partitions.

    Trying to emulate this with VMware...


    (Formating and partitioning with PowerQuest8)

    I see this (only 2 physical drives)...


    when performing a clean install on the VM even though all 5 drives are present after installation.

    Is this just a VMware 'thing' or am I missing something?


  9. So could it be said that AutoPartition=0 equates to "omit the AutoPartition entry from the answer file" giving rise to "If you do not set the value, text-mode Setup installs Windows on the partition where $WIN_NT$.~LS is located."? :}


    :blushing: Just re-read... "If you remove this line or if you put AutoPartition=0 then setup will ask you on which partition you wish to install Windows onto and advises you what to do if your partition already contains an OS." :whistle:

  10. According to the how-to guide...

    » [Data]AutoPartition=1 or 0

    If you have the selection on 1 then Windows Setup will install the OS on any free partition that is available. If you remove this line or if you put AutoPartition=0 then setup will ask you on which partition you wish to install Windows onto and advises you what to do if your partition already contains an OS.

    According to ref.chm...


    No reference to value = 0. :wacko:

    Can anyone clarify this for me please?

  11. Can we kick some life back into this thread please... I'm trying to attain similarly what LanfreeDJ is asking, that is to format C: to NTFS (irrelevant of whether Windows exist or not) without damaging any other partitions on the drive, all without manual intervention.

    @LanfreeDJ... Did tguy's example work for you?

    @tguy... "FileSystem-ConvertNTFS"... should that read "FileSystem=ConvertNTFS"?

    @Nanaki... "Shouldn't AutoPartition be on 'Yes'"... should that read "Shouldn't Repartition be on 'Yes'"?

    @durex... I also read elswhere in the forum that this can't be attained with a basic uA and that perhaps this is the one step that should be manualy processed to avoid undesirable results... but it would be nice to have it confirmed.

    Cheers all.

  12. KeyboardLayout="United Kingdom"

    By setting your Keyboard Layout, this prevents the Language icon appearing on the taskbar when you've logged on.

    From my WINNT.SIF...

     KeyboardLayout="United Kingdom"
     InputLocale = 0809:00000809
     InputLocale_DefaultUser = 0809:00000809
     Language = 0809
     LanguageGroup = 1
     SystemLocale = 0809
     UserLocale = 0809
     UserLocale_DefaultUser = 0809

    I still get the Language icon appearing on the taskbar and I think it's because of this...


    Can I remove the default 'English [united States]' in uA fashion?
