  1. Nice slim-job Numinous, everything to get the install-dir size down
  2. Alrighty then, as long as no dialog boxes pop up, interrupting everything, I'm cool with it... thanks again, gotta try this out
  3. Nice post and a great way to get rid of some of that "important" "core" stuff Just one quick question: Nologics post of an old gosh post states that Does this mean that modifying the .infs - not necessarily deleting files - will cause errormessages to appear ?? which would be kinda crap during an unattended install
  4. Thanks for the IExpress tutorial links, GreenMachine !! Gave me something new to play with
  5. *BUMP* and "Anyone tried this ?? Does it actually work with truncated filenames etc. ???"
  6. Great thread and/or idea, thanks Aaron
  7. I must admit I haven't had time to test the "miso"-way yet, but looking in the new Q823718_WITHOUT_SWITCH.EXE I noticed that files are named for example "Q89df7~1.inf" instead of "Q823718-270_WinMEx.inf". Will the install work then with the truncated filenames or have I done something wrong ??
  8. Couldn't agree more, what an extremely cool and neat (pardon the word) way of installing that blasted MDAC-thing!! Nice work miso1391, thanks
  9. Thanks for the info, Ryan, was just considering using Sun Java when I spotted your thread
  10. LOL, you're absolutely right... I have (I mean, I HAD) my "RD /S /Q %systemdrive%\install" line before I (tried to) run shutdown.exe... Do I feel like an id*** now or what ?? Thanks a lot for the input, at least I got my problem sorted and some of you guys can laugh at me
  11. The command windows shows and runs a couple of "rmdir" commands and such and then closes, but seems to skip the shutdown.exe-line completely ... I haven't read anywhere that it needs a "pause" command... is that really necessary ?? or is it just the psshutdown.exe utility that's able to run without pausing maybe ??
  12. I already had "shutdown.exe -r -f -t 60 etc. etc." in my .cmd file and it didn't work... and it's not just a problem with VPC, that's been tested I could of course just revert to using psshutdown.exe again, but this sorta bugs me...
  13. I just add my fav. wallpaper(s) to \$oem$\$$\Web\Wallpaper\ in .bmp format, then use a couple of reg. hacks to make it the default, i.e.: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop] "ConvertedWallpaper"="C:\\WINDOWS\\Web\\Wallpaper\\Windows XP.jpg" "Wallpaper"="C:\\WINDOWS\\Web\\Wallpaper\\Windows XP.bmp" Works like a charm
  14. Great script - and great modifications too. Thanks a bunch
  15. I'm having the exact same problem... using the "standard" shutdown.exe, the system doesn't restart... any ideas why ?? I could of course just use psshutdown.exe, but the other method is easier, since shutdown.exe comes with Windows...
  16. Using Resource Hacker, you should be able to replace the bitmaps in setup.exe with your own, thereby exchanging the colors, icons etc....
  17. Pretty cool stuff there, gosh, thanks for the info and keep up the good work
  18. Looks very nice Paul, looking forward to trying it out
  19. Looking good b0r3d, can't wait to try it out when I get home from work. Keep up the good work
  20. Thanks for the files, webmedic, looking forward to trying this out when I get home from work... Much appreciated, my unattended "thing" is coming along quite nicely now
  21. That would be most appreciated, webmedic Seen some of the screenshots of your .inf thing in action and it looks pretty good... much nicer than the .cmd way
  22. Sounds great, I'll be looking forward to that... along with many others I suspect The current version seems to work quite well here though, apart from the dirs and files I'm missing and/or haven't copied to right locations
  23. This slipstreaming looks very fascinating, but as I'm pretty new to all this unattended stuff... is there some Slipstreaming Hotfixes for Dummies guide somewhere ?? I mean, what dirs to create, what files to put where before I start and so forth... If it's already been posted, I apologize... must have lost it in all the other posts
