  1. As a matter of fact, I am. I integrated IE7 and WMP11. So the problem is IE huh...I guess that explains why after getting Windows updates, RunOnceEx executed on the next boot. Is there a solution though?
  2. I'm not sure what breaks my RunOnceEX.cmd but I'm sure it's not the batch file itself. It used to work and I've been keeping it untouched. I integrated the latest RyanVM's update pack (Feb, 2007) using nLite, in the cmdlines.txt I have: "regedit /S hkcu.reg" "useraccounts.cmd" "RunOnceEx.cmd" The first two that are used to create the accounts are working correctly but not the RunOnceEx. It's in the registry but it just doesn't run, so I went ahead and download Windows update since Feb., after restart the RunOnceEx executes correctly...does anyone know why this happens?
  3. In Document and Settings folder I have two folders named Administrator and Administrator.PC-000 PC-000 is the name of the computer. I can't delete this folder and the folder name stays the same after I renamed my computer to PC-01. Instead of Administrator.PC-01, it's still Administrator.PC-000. When I log in though, it's with the account Administrator, Administrator.PC-000 is not in the user name folder. Is there a way to delete it?
  4. I just checked and they are in fact, unsigned...which is weird. I downloaded the drivers from Nvidia website which are supposed to be WHQL certified. Either way, I also have: DriverSigningPolicy = Ignore NonDriverSigningPolicy = Ignore ...in my answer file, shouldn't that pretty much take care of any issues with unsigned drivers? This problem always ONLY happens with sound card drivers....
  5. I've been integrating drivers into my Windows CD. Everything gets installed fine except sound card...does anyone know why? This is the WINNT.SIF file from my latest install (this is for an nForce2 mobo). OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\000_chipset\agp;Drivers\000_chipset\mem;Drivers\000_chipset\SMbus;Drivers\002_video;Drivers\003_network;Drivers\003_network\PreNRM\WinXP;Drivers\004_audio\audio0;Drivers\004_audio\audio1;Drivers\004_audio\audio2;Drivers\005_printer" The chipset installed fine; video card installed fine, network card installed fine as well as the printer...just not the sound card. In device manager it shows ! besides the name. This is not the first time that's happened too. On my main PC I had this problem too, the X-Fi sound card had a ! next to it in device manager. I always have to reinstall the sound card after Windows installation is complete. What's interesting is that when I install the sound card after Windows installation, I point them to the same folders I use in my answer file. It works in Windows, but not for Windows installation and I don't know why. Can someone help?
  6. Doh! You're right. I totally forgot about it being implied... Just to make sure though, the variable is "." so it would be ".\notepad.exe" for "'currentfolder'\notepad.exe"?
  7. This is the batch file I use to replace notepad with notepad2. copy %systemdrive%\notepad.exe %systemroot%\system32\dllcache copy %systemdrive%\notepad.exe %systemroot%\system32\ copy %systemdrive%\notepad.exe %systemroot%\ As you can see, this batch file will not work unless I first copy notepad.exe to the C: drive. I put notepad2 with the batch file, so if I can just have batch file copy notepad.exe from the same folder (I put them together), that would save me a lot of trouble.
  8. Can I use cmdow @ /HID with the alternate method? Like cmdow @ /HID SetLocal enableextensions SET CDROM=%~d0 SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Programs" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "Adobe Acrobat 7.0.5" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\switchless\reader705.exe" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /VE /D "Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\switchless\dotnet2.exe" /f EndLocal EXIT I haven't seen how RunOnceEx from CD works out but is cmdow needed?
  9. I just finished reading the "RunOnceEX from CD" and there is something not so clear that I didn't get. ********************************** Alternatively, you can use the following code to set the %CDROM% variable if you wish to not be bothered by the CD.txt file requirements, or the inefficiency of checking every drive for a specific file, used of the previous method. It works by setting the %CDROM% variable to the same drive on which the script resides. In this case, the script being the actual RunOnceEx.cmd file. Just make sure you also include before the EXIT line, to close the extension. Keep in mind, when the extension is closed, the %CDROM% variable will be reset. For consistency, this guide will use the first method, but both are working solutions. ********************************** Where do I put the SetLocal enableextensions? Is this the correct way? cmdow @ /HID @Echo Off FOR %%i IN (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%i:\CD.txt SET CDROM=%%i: SetLocal enableextensions SET CDROM=%~d0 SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Programs" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "Adobe Acrobat 7.0.5" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\switchless\reader705.exe" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /VE /D "Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\switchless\dotnet2.exe" /f EndLocal EXIT Is this correct? Thanks in advance for any help.
  10. Initially it didn't work but after a bit of searching here I found out it's the hotfix. I did not import KB902942 and KB912945 (not sure which one is the culprit) and OOBE works BUT...I still get the OOBE setup asking 1)if I wanted to enable automatic updates 2)if I wanted to set up internet connection and 3)if I wanted to activate Windows. Is there any way to skip that part also? I do have [Data] AutomaticUpdates = 1 in my answer file but it still asks me if I want to enable autoupdate. Also is there a way to set up password using the OOBE method?
  11. I just finished reading the addon guide and I'm about to make a cab out of them. I would prefer to use Windows' built-in makecab instead of a 3rd party program, but I can't figure out the command line to include the SVPACK folder. I tried: makecab entries_dvddec.ini + svcpack dvdd.cab but it didn't work...SVCPACK is the problem. Also does it matter if I rename the ini file? e.g. ENTRIES_01.ini Thanks. Edit: BTW, does the install file in SVCPACK has to follow the 8.3 naming rule?
  12. For my custom unattended CD I put tweakui in $$\system32 folder with a reg key to make it display in Control Panel. I would like to put TweakMCE in there too with a reg key for making it appear in Control Panel but I don't know how to do that. I tried editting the TweakUI reg key but after I merge the key, tweakui would disappear from Control Panel. This is the key I used for TweakUI ; Add TweakUI to Control Panel ; ============================ [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{D14ED2E1-C75B-443c-BD7C-FC03B2F08C17}] @="Tweak UI" "InfoTip"="Advanced customization for Windows" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{D14ED2E1-C75B-443c-BD7C-FC03B2F08C17}\DefaultIcon] @="%SystemRoot%\\\\System32\\\\tweakui.exe,0" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{D14ED2E1-C75B-443c-BD7C-FC03B2F08C17}\Shell] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{D14ED2E1-C75B-443c-BD7C-FC03B2F08C17}\Shell\Open] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{D14ED2E1-C75B-443c-BD7C-FC03B2F08C17}\Shell\Open\Command] @="tweakui.exe" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{D14ED2E1-C75B-443c-BD7C-FC03B2F08C17}\ShellFolder] "Attributes"=dword:00000030 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{D14ED2E1-C75B-443c-BD7C-FC03B2F08C17}] @="Add Tweakui to Control Panel" I think the problem is that I didn't change the CLSID, I don't know which one is for MCE though. Please help! Title Edited - Please follow new posting rules from now on. --Zxian
  13. My Alienware notebook came with a Windows MCE 2005 edition DVD and it's slightly customized. I would like to make it into a non-branded disc like the one you can buy from newegg and then nlite it, the problem is I don't know what files to remove. Well I think the $OEM$ folder should be deleted as well as the winnit.sif file but I don't know what else. Is there a way I can check with a non-branded disc?
  14. I haven't made an unattended install CD yet. I just wanna make sure before I do it and reinstall the computer.
  15. How do I make an unattended install with Windows XP Upgrade version? Is it possible to skip that or put some Windows 98/ME files on the customized Windows XP CD so it won't ask me to insert my Win98/WinME CD?
