  1. I think MS doesn't know what the hell it's doing half most of the time. A cumulative update is just that, it should supercede all previous updates. As it stands now I have five IE11 updates, KB2909210, KB2929437, KB2976627, and now KB3021952 and KB3034196. I add them all to a base image containing only IE11 and it says I still need KB3021952. I updated my laptop by WU and it doesn't need KB3021952 a second time, but it also doesn't install KB3034196. You have to run WU twice to install KB3034196. Some dependency on KB3021952?  Strange things at Redmond to be sure. How about rolling them into one update? Oh there I go making sense.

  2. I was building a new image of Windows 7 HP 64 bit. I am confused about IE11 cumulative security updates. In 8/14 there was update KB2976627. It was superceded by KB2977629 in 9/14, except for IE11. Each cumulative update always replaces the previous, except in this case. Anybody know why?

    Now onto the lastest issue. I added the February updates to my image with DISM, but after install WU still wants IE11 cumulative security update KB3021952. Checking installed updates, KB3021952 is listed. The WU update must be some smaller component of KB3021952 because the download is only listed as 5-6 MB. Can anybody help me straighten this out? TIA.

  3. I downloaded Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 32 bit iso from Digital River. I used the Microsoft tool to create a bootable USB stick. Then I integrated IE9 and post-SP1 hotfixes using DISM and received no errors. However, after installing the OS none of the updates are installed. Before SP1 iso files were available I used the reverse integration method to make my 64 bit SP1 image and updates work fine with DISM that way. What is it about the SP1 iso that breaks DISM?

  4. My effort was successful! I put the key in my autounattend.xml file and the .xmr-ms file in both system32 and syswow64 oem folders. I don't know if it matters but I also edited the ei.cfg file from retail to oem and set VLK to 1 from 0. Did the install and it is already activated without all the crapware. Went from 60+ processes down to 33, LOL. Thanks so much for your help.

  5. Bought a new Lenovo laptop and of course it came with the usual crapware installed, OS is Win7 HPx64. There is a recovery partition where I found an image named cdrivebackup.wim. It is bloated to nearly 6.9GB. I mounted it using dism and got a lengthy list of apps installed. I know you can remove packages but I cannot see a way to remove applications. Is there any way to do this so that I may reinstall a cleaned up image and preserve windows activation?

  6. The slim version wont silent install for me. i used the switch /S and a windows pop-up appears asking to run the file.

    With Windows 7 you must check the properties of the downloaded file. When you download a file from the internet, or another computer, it puts a "block" file security attribute on it. So if you don't right click on the file, click properties, and click unblock, it will always ask for permission to run the file. Unblock the file and the /S switch will work, it does for me with the slim build.

  7. I have always just used the switches


    plus a regfile

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy]


    Works fine for me.

    Edit: I checked and I also stop java update scheduler from starting by the regfile



  8. Here's what I did for KB982168 (this is with Windows XP). Extract the package and you will find three msp files, KB976765, KB976769, and KB980773. Use the IExpress wizard (start > run > iexpress > OK) to create an installer from each msp file. Place the installers in the folder with the rest of the dotnet files and run the compiler. I received no errors and WU is happy!

  9. This certainly is interesting. I checked my XP SP3 install and mstsc.exe is v. 6.0.6001.18000. I then checked my SP2 retail disk and expanded mstsc.ex_, it is v. 5.1.2600.2180. In my HFSLIP SOURCE and SOURCESS folders the file mstsc.ex_ is v. 5.1.2600.2180. (I have slipstreamed SP3 manually so all the SP3 files will be in my SOURCE folder too). But there is another file lhmstsc.ex_ present in both folders that is version 6.0.6001.18000, the same version as mstsc.exe in my SP3 install. It is not present in the retail SP2 disk. How does mstsc.exe go from one version to the other then? lhmstsc.ex_ must be renamed to mstsc.exe during the OS installation, because it is not present in my SP3 install?

  10. Try these Catalyst drivers from ATI. They are for windows 98/ME. Get them here.

    Edit: server seems to be down. Go to www.amd.com, on the right hand side of page you will see ATI Radeon download drivers. Choose motherboard/chipset, then Windows 98/Me, then Radeon Xpress 200. Click view results and download the Catalyst software suite and try that.

    Edit2: Or did you already try these?

  11. KB976325 replace KB974455

    However, when I try to slipstream KB976325 it still shows as needed when doing windows update.

    I did remove KB974455 before run HFSLIP so not sure what the problem is.

    I had the same problem, and I discovered I had left KB976749 in HF. KB976325 replaces both KB974455 and KB976749. I removed it and reran HFSLIP and it worked fine.
