  1. put your cmdlines.txt in $OEM$ folder with following text [COMMANDS] "RunOnceEx.cmd" also put your RunOnceEx.cmd in the $OEM$ folder. Im guessing your problem might be that you have RunOnce.cmd? and your file is called RunOnceEx?
  2. There is no huge difference between Windows XP Professional and the Reduced Media Edition. There is no way anyone can look at the mere desktop and deduce that they are using the Reduced Media Edition. Microsoft has bundled Service Pack 2, which includes the Windows Security Center. Again, exploring the control panel, we see the usual suspects including Windows Firewall and a few others. The only indication that a user is using Windows XP RME is during the welcome screen after the OS is installed. The welcome screen clearly reads: “This reduced media version of Windows XP includes standard Windows functionality, with the exception of certain Windows multimedia technologies.” Also, peeping into the system properties, the system is labeled, Reduced Media Edition and clearly states that the system is at the Service Pack 2 level. Users can’t play any .WMA files. Windows doesn’t recognize its own file format, and prompts the user to use the web to find the appropriate application which will play the file. In addition, since there is no media player of any kind in this version of Windows, you can’t play any type of music or video media. Microsoft was ordered to remove more than just Windows Media Player from the OS; the EU decision required Microsoft to remove a total of 186 files. You can read more on Microsoft’s Implementation of European Commission Decision here.
  3. After a more indepth look (im not sure if these make any difference) FullName=Dave OrgName=Poly could be strings so should be: FullName="Dave" OrgName="Poly" Also make sure the drive letters are correct on the commands D:\ etc CommonProgramFilesDir="D:\Program Files\My Common Files" and the components thing other than that I cannot see anything wrong, if the problem continues look here http://unattended.msfn.org/global/reference.htm good luck
  4. This might help you http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...60entry115460
  5. On a quick glance I can only see one error (maybe yank spelling ). [Components] You spelt it wrong, its e not a Hope it works now.
  6. The way Astalavista says is a good way to do it. Im guessing from your post you dont seem to understand how it works. When placing the file in the $OEM$ folder this is the default place which wont be placed on your drive but the root of the unattended which the Winnt.sif picks up. SO When you put the following commands in your Winnt.sif [COMMANDS] "REGEDIT /S tweaks.reg" The Winnt.sif looks at your $OEM$ folder and will execute the file silently when setup is finished with the /S switch. Another way would be to put the tweaks file in $OEM$/$1 which will be copying the file to your drive ie. C:\ and then executing this with command below, but this requires a cleanup cmd or something to delete it afterwards. [COMMANDS] "REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\tweaks.reg" Simple but effective.
  7. can be done easily with a cmd ECHO Installing .net Framework 1.1 + SP1... ECHO Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\dotnetframe\netfx.msi /QB start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\dotnetframe\NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe /Q Change the dir to yours, this is how I do it.
  8. With your themes [Shell] CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%WinDir%\Resources\Themes\Windows Classic.Theme" DefaultThemesOff=Yes DefaultStartPanelOff=Yes try removing CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%WinDir%\Resources\Themes\Windows Classic.Theme" so its [Shell] DefaultThemesOff=Yes DefaultStartPanelOff=Yes setting default themes off should put classic on by default
  9. Unlock it then click it and hold the button down while dragging it to the top then let go, you can also unlock it by right clicking taskbar then Lock/Unlock etc. If you meant reg tweak you didnt specify
  10. Read the posts above, the guy has explained how to operate the switches so you dont have to install toolbar etc. Every version of MSN is pretty much built the same so the switches from previous versions should work on newer.
  11. that method should work if your doing it correctly. Try re-installing Windows Media Player 10, just install it over the top it should reset your extensions for media.
  12. Welcome, but as you will be told time and time again. USE THE SEARCH FIRST anyways have a look here: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...&hl=IntelliType im sure it will help you out
  13. better way for the above tweak is: ; ==== Adds MsConfig to right click My computer [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\MsConfig] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\MsConfig\command] @="msconfig.exe /S" this saves entering your windows dir at the start
  14. I went to the website on the titlebar of the program in the screenshots and found the following links: http://www.win-web.be/forum/images/proinst...ta3-creator.rar http://www.win-web.be/forum/images/proinst...a3-executor.rar http://www.win-web.be/forum/images/proinst...ons-exemple.rar from this thread here edit: found this also http://www.win-web.be/forum/images/proinst...roInstall12.rar
  15. If i understand you correctly you want to add your application into the startup options of windows so it loads everytime you start windows. Well to do this you can do the following. Add an entry into the registry will make your program load on windows startup. Either use HKLM or HKCU, thats your choice. [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] "<name you want for app>"="<app path>" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] "<name you want for app>"="<app path>" So for example if i had a program called mike it could be: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] "mikesprogram"="c:\program files\mike.exe"
  16. It works here, are you sure your logged in with admin privilages?
  17. It should work the same, installing it with an OS already on or blank. The only way I can see it not working is by some partitioning settings or something you have in your winnt.sif.
  18. I slipstreamed SP2 over SP1 before, so your CD must have some other alteration which is causing the error. Have you slipstreamed any hotfixes or anything into it?
  19. Yes you can slipstream SP2 into a XP CD with SP1 already integrated. Try using a tool such as nlite or autostreamer. Nlite is pretty good http://nuhi.msfn.org/index.html
  20. to get classic theme add: [Shell] DefaultStartPanelOff=Yes DefaultThemesOff=Yes As for your resolution it seems fine but I would recommend removing the Refresh Rate line, I have found this causes some problems with some monitors etc.
  21. If im correct RunOnceEx puts the paths into the registry to run when the pc is restarted when finished, so when the pc loads it will get to the welcome screen and run the reg which will install your apps.
  22. Try installing a patched uxtheme.dll and see if that works, dont see why it shouldnt but I had problems like this once before.
  23. 80% done now, some screenshots below. Any suggestions/comments are welcome. Shot 1 Shot 2 Shot 3
