  1. I haven't tried 6.04 with Quicktime, but 6.03 worked fine with the switches I linked to earlier...
  2. I downloaded the full installer for iTunes 6.0.4, extracted the files, deleted the QuickTime installer, and ran it...and everything worked fine. You can install it silently, too. You still have other languages, but at least it doesn't install Quicktime. I also seem to have avoided the one msi related issue which I had had with the customized installer.
  3. discountpc, I've been hoping to find information to accomplish the same thing. Sadly, I don't think it is possible, but the menu idea might work...
  4. Search is a beautiful thing.. You'll still need the Quicktime Alternative installed, though...
  5. Interesting project you've got going here. I just have one question...does PING support NFS shares?
  6. Try putting OPKInstall on the same line as the other AddReg stuff: That's how I have mine and it works fine. That's the only difference I've seen so far.
  7. It's been a while since I messed with unattended win98 and I don't recall how far I got with it before getting distracted by other projects/school. I did manage to use RunonceEx in win98, but it got just a tad complicated. I've got two tests in the next two days so I'll be busy studying, but after that I'll dig through my win98 stuff and see what exactly I did. As for the login prompt, I don't think I ever got around it. It's probably a simple as a registry entry, but we'll see. If it's possible to run a program at that point it might be possible to create a vbscript that hits the enter key. I'll have to get back to the project some time soon I guess.
  8. He's asking how to install the WU v5 active x control unattendly. Re-read the post.
  9. I get that behavior already without having to delete anything. I'm trying to avoid having Windows ask *at all*--I mean, what's the point of an unattended install if I have to sit around waiting to hit enter?
  10. I'm glad someone found the oem tweak useful. Now if only I could get that silly password prompt to stop appearing...(copying the .pwl file over during install did not work)
  11. Yeah, but I imagine people would like to be able to load another program without immediately needing the page file. (So far I've gotten XP down to about 40MB or so ram usage with nlite)
  12. XP can't very well run on 48MB of ram, can it? What, do you want me to migrate them all to Linux?
  13. Right. I'm trying to accomplish this during install so that I never see it in the first place, though. Perhaps I'll try copying over the .pwl files during setup...
  14. This is posted somewhere else in this forum, but I figure I'll be nice and repost the info. Add [OPKInstall] HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion","ProductId",,12345-OEM-1234567-12345 HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion","ProductKey",,"CDKey" HKLM,"Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion","RegisteredOwner",,blah HKLM,"Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion","RegisteredOrganization",,none to your msbatch.inf and add OPKInstall to the Addreg entry under [install] to get Setup to skip the license, product key, etc in OEM copies of Win98 (probably for ME, too). It'll look something like this: [Install] AddReg=OPKInstall,... Now, does anyone know how to skip the password prompt after Windows has installed? You know, the one that says to enter a password but if you leave the password field blank it won't ask again? It is kind of annoying to have that right in the middle of an unattended install...
  15. SP1a and SP2 don't have the Java VM, so they don't include any updates to it, either..
  16. Well, since MS says most problems are related to the firewall disabling/removing it will probably solve most problems..
  17. I think I got that same error with Daemon Tools 3.46. Version 3.44 of that particular program works, but I don't know what to tell you about Alcohol, as I've never used it.
  18. Why does it matter? 2180 is available directly from MS and is "guaranteed" (as far as MS will guarante their software.. ) to work.
  19. No. Restarting after installing SP2 would cut your remote access (the firewall will be active...). Install SP2, apply the registry tweak and then you should be able to reboot and retain access. I'm not speaking from any personal experience, though, so I'd wait for someone else to post before doing anything.
  20. 3.44 works with SP2 (I don't know about 3.45 as I don't have a copy of it). 3.46 doesn't, but I think you've noticed this. There'll probably be a new version out sometime soon that fixes this little problem.
  21. Bk, lose the attitude. You're the one who is not learning here. The file 'WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe' with the MD5 checksum of 59a98f181fe383907e520a391d75b5a7 is, without question, the final build of Service Pack 2 and was released to manufacturing (RTM) on the 4th (or was it the 6th?). Any other file that does not match the information Gabriel posted is one of the pre-release builds that some people are trying to pass off as the final build. Once again, which is more likely to be genuine, the file available for download at Microsoft's website or some file from some P2P network? [Edit]Agh, I was too slow!
