  1. You could save the command in a cmd file and execute it from RunOnceEx.
  2. As an experiment I extracted occache.dll from the IE7 package and tried to register the file. It worked. There must be something wrong with the file in the IE8 package that it won't register. Perhaps Microsoft will fix it someday A moot point anyways since it apparently has no effect.
  3. I include KB888111 in my Win2K HF folder and have no problems.
  4. I am getting the OLE error in setuperr.log too. Retail XP Pro SP3, IE8, HFSLIP 1.7.9 beta_k. Edit: Don't know if this helps but if I try to register occache.dll manually with the command <regsvr32 "c:\windows\system32\occache.dll"> I get the following error message: "C:\Windows\System32\occache.dll was loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not found. The file can not be registered." HFSLIP.zip
  5. Open a command window and at the command prompt type "setlocal /?" (without the quotes) to get the usage. The method is covered in the unattended guide here. What you posted last is correct and should work. But I still can't figure out why your cd.txt method did not work. Your RunOnceEx looked OK to me. And why it worked in VMWare and not live? Who knows. At any rate, good luck.
  6. I would try using one of the WinXP identifier files in the root of your CD as the filename in your RunOnceEx instead of CD.txt. I was using the win51ip.sp3 file before I found another way that is much simpler. SetLocal EnableExtensions SET CDROM=%~d0 SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Applications" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "My Application" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "%~d0\install\myapp.exe" /f ... ... EndLocal Exit Obviously you would replace the folder name "install" with whatever you are using for your apps.
  7. Sorry I didn't get back sooner, I was on vacation. As to your silent install, what are you trying to accomplish? Are you doing an unattended install of Windows and want to add the Logitech drivers to the install?
  8. RD is the remove directory command to remove an entire directory such as the sample picture folder. The /S switch is required to remove a directory that is not empty, the /Q switch does it silently. DEL is the delete command to delete a single file such as the shortcut to the sample picture folder. When are you running your cleanup.cmd? I run mine with RunOnceEx and it works fine.
  9. Here is what I use in my cleanup.cmd to remove the shortcuts from my documents and the actual samples from all users. This is with XP SP3. DEL /Q "%userprofile%\My Documents\My Music\Sample Music.lnk" DEL /Q "%userprofile%\My Documents\My Pictures\sample pictures.lnk" RD /S /Q "%AllusersProfile%\Documents\My Pictures\Sample Pictures" RD /S /Q "%allusersprofile%\Documents\My Music\Sample Music" RD /S /Q "%allusersprofile%\Documents\My Music\Sample Playlists"
  10. After Windows is installed and the system reboots, RunOnceEx will display a window titled "Installing applications". What is displayed in the window is contained in your RunOnceEx.cmd title entries. For example, in your title line REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Applications" /f sets the title of the window to "installing applications" and the title line REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "VLC Media Player v0.9.8a" /f RunOnceEx will display VLC Media Player v0.9.8a Read here for a discussion of RunOnceEx.
  11. I thought I had messed something up. It's a relief to have confirmation from another user. I hope the reg tweak posted works for you. I am just going to stay with IE8 for now since it works. Thanks for the responses.
  12. I believe my old Office 2000 disk has IE5 installer on it. If that would help you let me know.
  13. The reg tweak didn't do anything. I checked my wife's laptop that I had last done using beta_d with XP Home SP3. The IE7 icon launches IE7 as usual. In the context menu there are entries for "open home page" and "start without add-ons". These are missing when I use beta_k, the first entry is "create shortcut", so when I double click the icon it creates a shortcut. It is no big deal I was just wondering if anyone else observed this. Edit: Ran beta k with IE8 and KB968220. Everything works perfectly.
  14. Try this. Extract the downloaded file setpoint472.exe with 7zip. Find the folder 1-setpoint. In that folder there is a file setup.exe and a file setup.iss. This is an InstallShield installer and can be installed silently by using these switches: setup.exe /s /f1setup.iss You could also make a 7zip sfx switchless installer if you'd like.
  15. Weird issue I just discovered since I use Firefox most of the time. With the latest beta_k and IE7 on XP Home and Pro SP3, clicking on the IE desktop shortcut only creates a copy of the shortcut. Right clicking does not show "open home page" in the context menu. Quick launch icon, start > programs > Internet Explorer, and start > run > iexplore.exe work fine. IE6 on Win2K works fine. This is with all current HF's. Anybody else have this happen?
  16. The link I gave above works for me. I have it downloaded and it is only 450kb, I could email it to you if you like. And here is a direct link to the download click here.
  17. I found a Sil0649 raid driver on the Syba website. You can find it here

    Windows Updates

    KB909520 is an optional non-critical update on my XP SP3 and 2K SP4 machines.
  19. I apologize that I did not notice that you were working with Server 2003. Don't know how but I did. Well it was late and I was getting sleepy. Anyway, I am using hfslip-1.7.9_beta_d and XP SP3. With WindowsXP-KB960715-x86-ENU.exe in the HF folder, and WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe in the HFSVCPACK_SW1 folder, I get a perfect install. Maybe what you are seeing is related specifically to Server 2003? Hope you can get it sorted out.
  20. KB942288 is not supported. You can however place it in HFSVCPACK_SW1 folder to be installed at T-13. Should end your problem.
  21. 1. Place the file in your $OEM$\$$\System32 folder and it will be copied over during setup. 3. Use shortcut.exe to make the shortcut. I make shortcuts in my cleanup.cmd. Syntax would be: shortcut.exe /f:"%allusersprofile%\Desktop\myshortcut.lnk" /a:c /t:"%systemroot%\system32\myfile.exe"
  22. I am assuming your laptop uses an AMD/ATI chipset, 780G? I found an XP driver on the ATI website. Download this file from ATI. Extract the files with 7-zip or whatever you want to use and look in the folder named $HWNDPARENT. There are a couple of RAID folders there, you probably need the ones in the RAID7xx folder. Open that folder and you will see the txtsetup.oem file, and the x86 folder containing the three ahcix86 driver files. Hope this helps you get XP installed.

    Windows Updates

    There is another ActiveX killbits update KB960715 that is not listed on the Feb. security bulletin. It shows up in WU for 2K and XP. It is cumulative and replaces KB956391. Edit: Works with the last HFSLIP beta 01/07/09
  24. Make sure your install folder is located here: $OEM$/$1/install, and that RunOnceEx.cmd and cmdlines.txt are in the $OEM$ folder.
