  1. Thanks! Adding the prefetch folder to the image worked.
  2. I have not tried it with program installations, however I am calling regedit to import .reg files from that pass, without calling cmd.
  3. According to the list of installed updates, there is no previous version installed.
  4. I am trying to use the method explained by FireGeier on his site to slipsteam KB941649 into my copy of Vista Enterprise 32bit. It always returns error 1359. I have tried the original and v2 of the update with the same result. Anyone know what a 1359 is, or how to avoid/fix it?
  5. I've got 334 currently slipstreamed without error. However, I did not do them all at once. I have had errors on individual hotfixes. I've probably come across 5 or 6 hotfixes (including one of the recent reliability updates) that would not slipstream. I just skipped them. This is on English Enterprise 32bit.
  6. Sorry, Haven't seen that one. The menus in mine are normal.
  7. Close the applet. Save as a .reg file and import it into the registry. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.ico] @="icofile" "Content Type"="image/x-icon"
  8. Instead of adding the default IE7 installer from MS, download the IEAK7 and build a custom IE install and add that instead. It should modify the settings you are looking for.
  9. Check out the following post for a possible workaround: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=86346
  10. I guess I jumped the gun a bit also. I noticed mine only after I began integrating IE7, however in order to do so, I had to upgrade to 1.20 and then I upgraded again to 1.21. It never crossed my mind that maybe it was nlite alone. ** On a unrelated note, I just wanted to thank Nuhi for this great program. It has tought me a lot about integrating/removing items from XP.
  11. Did you integrate IE7? Check out my post here: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=86346 Same errors.
  12. I've come across what appears to be a very minor bug while integrating IE7. I can't say it is caused by nlite, however, the problem does not occur if I install IE7 into an existing XP install, only when integrating. And again, it's minor. It would only affect User accounts, not Admin users. I have integrated the Final IE7, downloaded directly from MS, no other changes, into a plain XP SP2, with no other integrations, changes, or anything. What is happening, is the rights to the registry key, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer are being changed. On my pre-IE7 image, that key has the following permissions: Administrators - Full Control SYSTEM - Full Control Everyone - Read (Query Value, Enumerate Subkeys, Notify, Read Control) on my post IE7 integration, that key has the following permissions: Administrators - Read (Query Value, Enumerate Subkeys, Notify, Read Control) SYSTEM - Read (Query Value, Enumerate Subkeys, Notify, Read Control) Since there are no other rights, this triggers a couple of MSI errors (2503 followed by 2502, on EVERY MSI). Again, since most normal user accounts do not have the rights to install software via MSI's anyway, and most home users are Admin users, it's not a big issue. I only came across it because we deploy software to restricted users. Can anyone verify this?
  13. We are deploying some new Dell GX620's with DVD's on Windows 2000. The problem is that Windows 2000 defaults the DVD to PIO mode rather than DMA. This causes audio issues. Anybody know of a way to enable the DMA for the DVD (Or all IDE controllers) without requiring user interaction? I know how to turn it on, but I need it done during the unattended install somehow. Either a script, or commandline utility, or something. Any suggestions are appreciated. TIA
  14. I tried it. Didn't work. I've looked at the tutorials on RyanVMs site, but I am missing something. When I use NLite to integrate my cab, it copies the files to the i386, but nothing ever gets installed during XP setup. I've tried it a number of times in VMWare. I don't know if it is because it is supposed to overwrite existing files, or what, but I have yet to be able to get it to work. But I haven't given up completely! I'll keep trying.
  15. Maybe boooggy or someone would be kind enough to make a nlite addon for this so it CAN be integrated? Huh? Maybe? Please?
  16. I just want WMP9 added in. (Or a seperate addon would work too!) Thanks for all the hard work though, it is appreciated.
  17. There are a number of ways to set it. Since mine is a corporate image, I use the Group Policy settings: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ;=============================== ; WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER ;=============================== ; Prevent Desktop Shortcut [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsMediaPlayer] "DesktopShortcut"="no" ; Prevent Quick Launch Shortcut [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsMediaPlayer] "QuickLaunchShortcut"="no"
  18. I created another account that is just in users, no change. Yes, it is English XP, and no special reason for removing them from Users. Thanks for all the replies.
  19. Well, since the Net user command adds the to the "Users" group by default, I create them using: net user Account1 Password /add which creates the account as a member of Users, then add them to the Administrators group, using: net localgroup Administrators Account1 /add then remove them from the Users group, using: net localgroup Users Account1 /delete They appear in Local Users and Groups as members of Administrators.
  20. Ok, I am adding users via an useraccounts.cmd file. The users get added fine, and I have the OEMSkipWelcome set in my WINNT.SIF and it is also working. My install works just fine. It's AFTER install that I am having the problem. It's related, but different. After installation, when I go to User Accounts in Control Panel, and click on Create a new account, It says the first account created must be an administrator. Well, it's not the first account. I have already added 2 through the useraccounts.cmd file. But XP apparently doesn't recognize them as being created this way. Any ideas?
  21. Can't say WHY it is happening, but for a workaround, how about deleting AUTORUN.INF ?
  22. If you are running a domain, you can use group policy to distribute MSI installations. SMS would be nice, but it is not free. And NO, you can not use SUS or WSUS to distribute your own updates.
  23. No, the images don't have to be different. Create the image on the OLDEST system you will be using. I came across this same problem when I tried creating my image on a GX280. (If you install XP directly to a GX280, it will use the multiprocessor ACPI HAL, which won't work on uniprocessor systems, however if you image the GX280 with a image created with the standard ACPI HAL, it will still work.) Instead, I built our XP image on a GX110, and we are using it on GX110's, GX150's, GX260's, GX270's, GX280's, GX520's and Lattitude C810's, D505's, and D510's. It's a slow painful experience to do it this way, but it allows us a single image.
  24. Well, I checked the WindowsUpdateAgent20-x86.exe (Windows Update) and the muweb_site.cab (Microsoft Update) files mentioned in this thread: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=49090 and neither has LegitCheckControl.dll included, so I hesitate to think it is used for anything other than the Windows Genuine Advantage stuff. However you might try reading through the above topic, it has lots of info and reference on different ways to integrate Windows Update and Microsoft Update.
