  1. Probably so that the rest of us who haven't even been able to get on your FTP can locate them at an easier location. Hmmm, I've managed to get something upon accessing your FTP - a pop-up window asking for a username and password. Is anonymous access really disabled? I don't know if it was Sygate PFP playing up...
  2. ****. I still haven't been able to see the contents. Are you sure the address is still the same as on the previous page, Dave? Does the IP consistently change? Or are you seeing the maximum 5 people populating it every time?
  3. DOH! I think I must be going blind.....
  4. I just realised that the seperate WMP9 exe downloadable from msfnforum.cjb.net is the same exe that's found in the WMP9 + MM2 Bundle. Anyway, GM, I've noticed something - you quoted the long WMP9 command a bit differently to how I saw it in opk.inf. Here's how your original quote went: setup.exe /Q:A /R:N mpsetup.exe /Q:A /R:N /c:"setup_wm.exe /Q /R:N /NoPID /DisallowSystemRestore" And here's the section I saw in opk.inf: [run.presetup] setup.exe /Q:A /R:N "mpsetup.exe /Q:A /R:N /c:""setup_wm.exe /Q /R:N /NoPID /DisallowSystemRestore""" Why is the original line double quoted above? It confuses me a bit. Does your line work fine?
  5. At what exact times is your FTP up, Dave? I haven't been able to examine it yet.
  6. I would use the WMP9+MM2 combo, except that I don't particularly find MM2 useful (I don't regularly make movies). The IEXPRESS guide you linked to only seems to explain how to deal with an MSI file. I'm not quite sure how to translate that guide for normal packed .EXEs. Do you know if the process is drastically different?
  7. I can't really make another CD until I at least work out the WMP9 thing...
  8. Okay. DaveXP says there are extras in that exe, so I thought I'd use that. And is it possible to use both OPK and switch from svcpack.inf? I *think* I use the tools before, but I believe you can only make MSIs out of them, is that correct? Not sure if you can use IEXPRESS with non-MSI stuff like WMP9 and DX9. Can you?
  9. How were these exes made in the first place anyway?
  10. Your FTP don't appear to be working. I'm getting a "Socket error: no connection" type error, so it can't be anything to do with a full queue.
  11. I must ask one question: is it okay to use the standalone WMP9 OPK on my CD, so long as I use a switch or two in the command line? If so, should I choose plain ol' /Q:A /R:N, or the line that GreenMachine mentioned on the first page?
  12. But they're both roughly the same size. Check them out for yourself. I selected Offline installation in both of the links.
  13. There appears to be two different exes. Different names, different sizes. What exactly is the difference between them? 'j2re-1_4_2_01-windows-i586.exe' can be grabbed from here. 'j2re-1_4_2_02-windows-i586-p.exe' can be grabbed from here.
  14. If it's the newest version, then why does it have a lesser Q number? And why does it not pop up on Windows Update instead of Q823718?
  15. Jesus, now I don't know which MDAC I should install.....
  16. OMG! Stop hurting the poor thing! You don't know what you're doing! Check your WINNT.SIF file has "Unattended" set to "YES"... If you mean "Unattended" as in "UnattendedInstall" in [Data], then of course it's set to "Yes".
  17. Ok, here's how I set my CD up. I input my Explorer settings into both HIVEDEF.INF and in a registry file in $OEM$. Here's how said registry file is laid out. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ;Some Explorer settings [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced] "CascadeNetworkConnections"="YES" "ClassicViewState"=dword:00000001 "DisableThumbnailCache"=dword:00000001 "DontPrettyPath"=dword:00000000 "Filter"=dword:00000000 "FolderContentsInfoTip"=dword:00000001 "FriendlyTree"=dword:00000000 "Hidden"=dword:00000001 "HideFileExt"=dword:00000000 "HideIcons"=dword:00000000 "IntelliMenus"=dword:00000000 "ListviewAlphaSelect"=dword:00000001 "ListviewShadow"=dword:00000001 "ListviewWatermark"=dword:00000000 "MapNetDrvBtn"=dword:00000000 "NoNetCrawling"=dword:00000001 "PersistBrowsers"=dword:00000000 "SeperateProcess"=dword:00000000 "ShowCompColor"=dword:00000001 "ShowInfoTip"=dword:00000001 "ShowSuperHidden"=dword:00000001 "Start_AdminToolsRoot"=dword:00000000 "Start_AutoCascade"=dword:00000000 "Start_EnableDragDrop"=dword:00000001 "Start_LargeMFUIcons"=dword:00000000 "Start_MinMFU"=dword:00000000 "Start_NotifyNewApps"=dword:00000000 "Start_ScrollPrograms"=dword:00000000 "Start_ShowControlPanel"=dword:00000001 "Start_ShowHelp"=dword:00000000 "Start_ShowMyComputer"=dword:00000000 "Start_ShowMyDocs"=dword:00000000 "Start_ShowMyMusic"=dword:00000000 "Start_ShowMyPics"=dword:00000000 "Start_ShowNetConn"=dword:00000001 "Start_ShowPrinters"=dword:00000000 "Start_ShowRecentDocs"=dword:00000000 "Start_ShowRun"=dword:00000001 "Start_ShowSearch"=dword:00000001 "StartButtonBalloonTip"=dword:00000002 "StartMenuAdminTools"=dword:00000000 "StartMenuFavorites"=dword:00000000 "StartMenuInit"=dword:00000002 "SuperHidden"=dword:00000001 "TaskbarAnimations"=dword:00000000 "TaskbarGlomming"=dword:00000000 "TaskbarSizeMove"=dword:00000001 "WebView"=dword:00000000 "WebViewBarricade"=dword:00000001 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CabinetState] "Settings"=hex:0c,00,02,00,3a,01,e7,77,60,00,00,00 So I install XP, hoping the double reminder of the settings would give it the general idea of what I wanted by default. It just HAD to. For the sake of my own fragile sanity. But, alas, it was not to be. Above are the settings as I found them when I logged on for the first time. So, after all that complicated HIVE editing and the not-so-complicated reg file creating, it had completely and utterly defied my "Display protected files" request. ONCE A-BLOODY-GAIN. BAD, BAD, BAD WINDOWS XP!!!! VERY VERY BAD!!!! *hits monitor and computer with a large stick* I also noticed that "ShowSuperHidden" had not even been inserted into the registry, despite my reference to it in both files. On the plus side, it looked like my "Open in seperate windows" setting had at least been put into effect, thankfully. No reusing the same single window again and again. Wooooooo. But still. The utter rudeness and rebellious nature of XP completely astounds me. I'd really like to know why MS are still enforcing these particular options to how they want it by default every single time. Will we EVER successfully defeat the invisible enemy inside this OS? Will we be able to make it crack? I'd be grateful if it was at all possible.
  18. I've noticed that when I run XP text setup (to reinstall said OS, natch), it always, ALWAYS modifies the drive letters for my partitions, switching them around when I bloody don't want it to. I doubt my motherboard BIOS provides a "make letters sticky"-like option or something like that. There MUST be a solution - this occurrence is ruddy well peeing me off...
  19. We know that "ShowSuperHidden" is for showing those files that remain hidden even with "Hidden" set to '1', but what about plain ol' "SuperHidden"? It can't be for showing the contents of system folders, since that's what "WebViewBarricade" is for.
  20. Now this worries me - do you happen to know which games in particular, or do errors come in randomly for all games?
  21. I'm quite confused that this has happened to you - I'm also a single computer user (no-one else uses my comp) and coming out of the screensaver has always taken me back to the desktop, no login screen or nothing.
  22. I don't believe any version of Windows Messenger provides an uninstall slot in Add/Remove Programs (yet MSN Messenger does). Confusing.
