  1. I’m trying to modify games.inf in Windows XP installation to include extra games. When I test it in already installed system, everything works fine. However, including it in Windows XP installation triggers the entire sysoc.inf not to be processed correctly — not only games are missing, but also other components that are installed via sysoc.inf appear to be broken. For example, wordpad.exe is copied to its folder but no icon exists in Start menu. spider.exe is also copied to its destination (system32), but other games’ files (e.g. sol.exe, winmine.exe) that are mentioned in games.inf are not even copied. When I open "Add/remove Windows components" it reports missing games as installed (checkboxes are ticked), and it is actually possible to install them from there, including the new ones. This drives me crazy. I tried different combinations, but nothing worked except reverting back to original file! Any suggestions regarding what might be causing this odd behavior? Here’s my minimal games.inf with only 1 game added (Shanghai Solitaire), which copies just 1 file (shanghai.exe) ; This is the Setup information file to install optional components ; Copyright © 1996

  2. They are from full installation of Sun JRE. Of course not everyone needs all of them, especially region-specific ones, but I decided to keep everything. It would be nice to also have 'minimal' .inf with only basic set of files, but I haven't found out which files are absolutely essential.
  3. Hi everyone. I'm new to the topic of slipstreaming, and here's my first contribution - .inf file for installing the latest Sun JRE (v. 1.5.0_06). It has a [DefaultInstall] section, so you can just right-click and choose "Install" from context menu. You still need the following files from original JRE package jre-1_5_0_06-windows-i586-p.exe. Put all of them in the same folder with jre1506.inf without creating any sub-folders.

ZoneInfoMappings Zurich You can download the original package from one of these mirrors. You may just extract all the files using MsiCabExtract.exe, or install jre-1_5_0_06-windows-i586-p.exe on a test machine and look in "Program Files\Java" and "Program Files\Common Files\Java\". (Sorry, I can't upload them in a zip -- I got too slow connection for that). It's not too hard to fully integrate Sun JRE with Windows installation source (the way Microsoft VM was integrated in XP SP1). I'm not providing step-by-step procedure at this time, but Gosh has wonderully described various methods here. To do this, dosnet.inf and txtsetup.inf would need modifications. Sun Java will be installed in "Windows\Java". Once it is installed using the .inf, you won't be able to automatically uninstall it, but everything else, including updates, seems to be working just fine. jre1506.inf
