  1. Thank you very much for your reply, kliu0x52. I don't use the check multiple file feature and that's why I never really thought about where to place the checkmark. As for the speed issue, I just noticed that you're right. It does have influence having the file in cache and it is why HC has been slower than HT. It's because in my trials, I always try hashing a file with HC and after that I hash it with HT... Dumb of me for not having noticed. Cheers
  2. Hi there code65536, Excellent tool and excellent features! I do miss one thing: a green check mark right next to one of the hashes when I paste a hash which matches the ones found by hashcheck. Although there is already a feature that highlights a matching hash I'd say that a green icon right next to it "à lá" hashtab would make it a killer app. Speaking of hashtab, I wouldn't like this to turn into a hashcheck vs hashtab thread just because of my comparison but I have to ask this: is it normal for hashcheck to be a whole lot slower than hashtab when reading a file to show hashes? I've made a lot of trials with both hashtab and hashcheck on their x86 versions (hashtab v2.3.0 vs hashcheck v2.1.11) and hashtab always wins and most of the times it wins for more than a couple of seconds per 20 megabytes hashed. Am I using/installing hashcheck in the wrong way or is this ok? I'm fine with hashcheck's speed but the hashtab speed comparison was inevitable and the results are quite conclusive. Sorry 'bout that mate and keep up your excellent work on hashcheck and cmdopen. Cheers

    Debby does nLite

    What an amusing thread! @Martin L I come here everyday and I can't tell you how much it pleases me to see a woman in this circle using nLite, talking about RAID/SATA drivers in Textmode and stuff. Not that women are anything less than we are when it comes to PC business but unfortunately we don't get to see them here too often because they seem to prefer baking some cookies to their husbands/boyfriends rather than installing Win XP again. Therefore, if you look at this as an isolated event and if you ask me my opinion I say that ArcticRider's approach was very direct but not nasty and meaning no arm to debby. You're the Mod and you know your users better than I do but I just don't see the reason for heating up with Arctic . Besides, she handled it perfectly . @debby Way to go girl . Time to get rid of that SP1 and move on to SP2 with a couple of addons, huh? Peace
  4. Yep, GN'R ain't merely *the* most dangerous rock band of all time. GN'R is actually a lifestyle. I loved it in my teens and I still love it now that I'm in my thirties. I was there in Rock in Rio this year and may I say "what a performance..."! TV broadcast did a lousy job and those who only followed it through the tube have a very pale image of what these new GN'R are capable of doing even if most of the time they are still playing old stuff. I have gathered some high quality videos (720x480) of their performances at Rock AM Roing, Hammerstein Ballroom, Download Festival, etc. My personal best would be WTTJ, Coma, Estranged and Paradise City all the way long. But I also love the commercial ones like SCOM, November Rain, Nightrain, Yesterdays, etc. Stay tuned for the upcoming Chinese Democracy CD coming up this fall/winter after more than 10 years in captivity without hearing a single word or note from them lool. Long live GN'R (with or without Slash)!! Finck for Senator!! Axl for President!! \m/ \m/ Back on topic now . I loved Mr. Brownstone's desktop. BTW and since I'm not a very experienced user when it comes to windows desktop enhancements: what's LE5? Cheers
  5. If you seek for a "one-click" tool you could try the best one: DiKo (DivX In Kvcd Out). The tool was originally coded to allow convertions from DivX/XviD/MPEG4 to KVCD/KDVD but nowadays you can input any "AVI" and have a fully compliant DVD output. You can find it at http://www.vmesquita.com/en/diko.htm. There are to versions, one is free and the other is commercial, but I think you'll do fine with the free one. BTW, you should consider their BDVD format instead of the DVD format. It is written in a DVD5, based on 720x576(PAL) or 720x480(NTSC) but with some tweaks that will greatly improve your encoded movie and will still play in every standalone DVD player. And if you find any trouble you even have a forum to post your questions in English or Portuguese . Those guys at vmesquita.com learnt from kvcd.net which is the landmark in VCD/DVD tweaking. I'm only advising vmesquita.com instead of kvcd.net because at kvcd.net we don't allow discussions about DivX/XviD sources. Cheers
  6. @nowinscenario, Hey there , Sorry for taking so long to reply but my life has been a mess lately. Actually I haven't look any further into this mistery. I have done all my XP installations with an nLite'd XP that is running perfectly. I'm attaching my settings.ini so you can see what I included and what I removed . Those other addons that I did not include...well...they're not essencial to my work. So for now I'm happy with what I have. Cheers Last_Session.ini
  7. I have successfully narrowed it to the following addons from RyanVM site: - Kels_AudioShellExt_addon_v1.1.CAB - Kels_MemTest_addon_v1.cab - Kels_myuninst_addon_v1.33.CAB - MrsP_PowerOff_Addon_v3.0.1.3.cab - MrsP_Rainlendar_Addon_v0.22.1.cab - MrsP_uTorrent_Addon_v1.5.437-QL.cab - shxZacam_AttributeChanger-v5.23_addon.cab - Siginet_Codecs_OpenSourceMpeg_Decoder_Splitter1.0.0.1_Addons_Beta1.1.cab - Xable_Foxit-v2.0_addon.cab Please note that I chose NOT to install these on a random choice. Some of these addons are quite young and some of these addons are quite old. One thing's for sure: I have full confidence on their authors and for safety sake I have downloaded them again and will play with them tomorrow since it's already 2:30am. Cheers
  8. Hi nuhi , I think I get the picture but I only open nLite when I have everything set to start building a new UACD. And for the record, I think this has something to do with RVM addons or RVMIntegrator. I am currently installing a new UACD on a VMWare that I built ONLY using nLite. No RVMIntegrator used this time. I'll let you know when I'm done. @all, For those having this problem: do you install RVM addons or use the RVMIntegrator? Cheers UPDATE: just finished installing that UACD and the problem is back. Which means that RVMUpdate 2.0.4, RVM Integrator 1.2.2 and nLite 1.0rc7 don't have any problem. The issue is add-on related. I'll try to catch the little SOB and I'll let you know afterwards. Cheers
  9. Hold on a minute! I just did another trial with the same settings as before but this time I didn't apply RVMUpdate 2.0.4 or any of the add-ons AND I didn't add my SIS SATA drivers. This time around the nLite'ed XP does not show any signs of framedyn.dll/srclient.dll being missing at all. Everything is working as it should! Now, I'm going to use the same settings.ini and I'm going to add my SATA drivers and I'll test it with VMWare. If it works, I'll make another nLite'ed XP based on the same settings.ini and this time I'll add RVMUpdate 2.0.4 with nLite and not with RVMIntegrator -> For now, no add-ons will be added. If everything works fine, I'll give it another shot using the same procedure and this time adding the SATA drivers, adding RVMUpdate 2.0.4 AND I'll only add add-ons that I have always worked fine, meaning, no new add-ons that I downloaded lately. I'll catch the little SOB that has been giving me sleepless nights . Cheers EDIT: I have just finished an nLite'ed UACD with RVMUpdate 2.0.4 integrated from nLite's options and using the already mentioned Settings.ini file. This means that it's either RVM_Integrator or one of the add-ons. 248_F1_temp.ini
  10. @nuhi, As always, thank you very much for giving us nLite. Great piece of software . Too bad it needs DotNet... But there's already so many tools out there nowadays that need DotNet that anyway it's starting to become "a must have" in every PC. @userus I'm sorry buddy but I'm affraid I didn't understand a word of what you were saying . Maybe you could write it in your native language and we could use babelfish to translate it. How about that? I'm saying this because I get the feeling that you are closer to giving a good tip to nuhi than anybody else here. And I would really like to get rid of this annoiance. Anyway thanks for all your efforts so far. @nowinscenario & @nuhi I myself have been facing this problem lately on a lot of VMWare trials. I even thought it could be related with VMWare so, silly me, I decided to try this on a real PC just to find out that it's a real...how shall I call it...a bug? Anyway, just to let you know that: - I always use XP-SP1a as a source. - I sleapstream SP2 on it and close nLite. - I download latest RyanVM pack and latest RVMIntegrator. - I also download some RVM add-ons such as: Kels_AudioShellExt_addon_v1.1.CAB Kels_AutoPlay_addon_v1.1.CAB Kels_Bootvis_addon_v1.1.cab Kels_CabTool_addon_v1.8.CAB Kels_ClearType_addon_v1.1.CAB Kels_MemTest_addon_v1.cab Kels_myuninst_addon_v1.33.CAB Kels_UPXShell_addon_v1.cab MrsP_PowerOff_Addon_v3.0.1.3.cab MrsP_Rainlendar_Addon_v0.22.1.cab MrsP_uTorrent_Addon_v1.5.437-QL.cab shxZacam_AttributeChanger-v5.23_addon.cab Themes_Kel_OSminimal2_Addons_v1.4.cab Themes_Kel_RoyaleMod_Addons_v1.2.cab Xable_CalcPlus-v1.2_addon.cab Xable_Contig-v1.0_addon.cab Xable_Foxit-v2.0_addon.cab Xable_HashTab-v1.9_addon.cab Xable_HighMAT-v1.1_addon.cab Xable_Sysinternals-v2.1_addon.cab (this one I'm still using although it break the EULA but since Sysinternals didn't answer Ryan and since I read the EULA...) XAddon_Unlocker-Full-v1.8.1.cab - I integrate RVMUpdatepack 2.0.4 and the RVM Add-ons with the integrator. Now, if I don't remove stuff, such as for instance Internet Explorer, and I only integrate some hardware drivers and ask nLite to create and ISO everything works perfectly. Which means, and correct me if I'm wrong, that this rules out RVMUpdate pack and the add-ons. Now, if I remove some stuff from WinXP then I get a "rundll32.exe - Unable to locate component - This application failed to start because framedyn.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.". And then I get a "RUNDLL - Error loading srclient.dll - The specified module could not be found.". Everytime I right-click My Computer icon I get the srclient.dll message. Hope I have sometime today to run some tests without RVM's update packs and add-ons. Maybe I can try to narrow the possibilities to a point that nuhi can actually catch the s**ker . BTW, I don't use XPize one my unattended XP CDs . Cheers Last_Session.ini
