  1. Usually everything works just fine! Trust me!!

    But this time I get really :crazy:

    This is the system:

    Motherboard - Asus-A8NE

    Grafic card - Asus nVidia EN6200

    Latest graphic drivers 84.21 WHQL Certified!

    But the graphic driver still does not install!

    The winnt.sif is OK;



    And the path to the drivers is also OK;


    Any advice or suggestions are greatly appreciated...

    Big thanx in advance

  2. The standard size of the MFT in WinXP (pro) is rather small an I usually use Diskeeper 9 to make it bigger direct after installing WinXP. But now I have changed my disktool to O&O Defrag 8 and this application does not include the option to size the MFT.

    Does anyone know a program that can adjust the MFT size?

    Thanx in advance

  3. @ODC - Yes of course one can do that...

    I only take the new version - and put it in the rigtht folder - and them I´m done - a new unattended installation :whistle: -----> less adjusting of files ----> a quicker and cleaner install -----> me :D

  4. @Mekrel - Tried Your version with;

    PING -n 30>NUL

    And it works really well.

    @ All of You readers :hello:

    Are there any disadvantages in using either of these two methods (Nircmdc.exe or PING)? PING seems easier since it´s already a part of XP...

  5. @Achdine - it works really beautifully :thumbup

    But it´s a shame that one have to use an external program for a "sleep/wait/pause funtion" - there ought to be some internal (WinXPPro) solution!

    But as I warned :rolleyes: You - yet another question... Where´s the best place to put the NirCMDc.exe so I can reach it from wherer I want to? At C:\ or someplace else? Finally I will delete it!

  6. @Achdine Thanx for the suggestions - but I already use the "start /wait" option - I think it´s the creation of catalogs that takes time - it happens after the installer is done... or at least at the very end...

    Have thought of doing the Firefox install in the beginning of my main_batch.cmd and the extensions and favorites/bookmarks at the end. But I will try the NirCMD - because it sounds interesting!

    I will be back with comments on the result.

  7. @Achdine - Big step forward for me :yes:

    I would like to ask one more thing (atleast) :rolleyes:

    How do I get a .cmd file to wait for example 30 seconds before continuing (still within the same .cmd file).

    Why? It takes some time for Firefox to complete it´s installation - and before thats done the extensions and favorietes will not install properly.

    Hoping for yet another good answer from You or somebody else :whistle:

  8. @Achdine - thanx for Your suggestions - I will look into them - although I don´t understand them fully...

    But thats why I like this forum :thumbup When I don´t understand - I just ask - and eventually I will learn something :huh:

  9. This is the story;

    Trying to do a silent install of Firefox 1.0.6 + extensions + bookmarks/favorites.

    The silent install is no problem. The extensions goes just fine. But - to do the silent install of the bookmarks/favorites I have to know the name of the "something.default" directory located in "%userprofile%\Applic~1\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\" and this varies from install to install - it´s an "8 charactar (numbers and figures) .default" nasty thing :realmad: It´s into this directory my bookmarks.html should go which is no problem - when I know the correct name of the directory...

    The question to You, ladies and gentlemen is;

    Is there a way to set the name of the :realmad: directory?


    Is there a way to find out the name?

    I install Firefox + the rest from within a .cmd file - so thats where the name of the directory eventually will go...

    MegaBigThanx in advance!

  10. Thanx gentlemen :thumbup

    This was exactly what I wanted - but when I saw that one could have 15 or something different options to wote for i realized that I couldn´t do this myself :blushing:

  11. I think this would be interesting - especially to see which countries that are esepcially active.

    Soo - is there anyone who is more experienced than I am on setting up polls - who wants to give this one a try?

    Big thanx in advance!
