  1. Is there a max number of tweaks that one can apply - and after this number the tweaks won´t stick? I have som ancient memory of this limitation - and that it is possible to change the limit... Ideas please / SwedenXP more than ever...
  2. Small progress adding these lines made the "small icons on start menu" stick - but not the rest Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects2] "Settings"=hex:28,00,00,00,ff,ff,ff,ff,06,00,00,00,03,00,00,00,3c,00,00,00,1e,\ 00,00,00,fe,ff,ff,ff,e4,03,00,00,02,05,00,00,02,04 ,00,00 / SwedenXP - still a bit - but optimistic!
  3. Thanx for all the good advice... but so far I still have the same problems Feels like these tweaks doesn´t stick to the default profile and for that reason are not incorporated in my admin profile (which is the only one I have). / SwedenXP
  4. Alanoll - on 2 places... In my case this worked just fine upto SP2 - after that... Cartooninte - of course! The problems are as follows - On my start menue, I loose the "show small icons" and "hide the toolbar" options. And the quicklaunch bar has to be pulled out. This happends on every reboot, so my idea is that these tweaks has not been added to the default profile or my admin profile (which is the only profile). The commands.com, setuser.reg, quicklaunch.reg, regtweaks.reg are the same as before SP2. And I will include my services.reg... Suggestions are appreciated. / SwedenXP
  5. In which order should I have my commands in "cmdlines.txt"? Mine looks like this - and I have problems with the menu and the quicklaunch bar. It worked just fine before i added XP SP2 - then it all went to h*ll... [COMMANDS] "REGEDIT /S .\REGTWEAKS.REG" "REGEDIT /S .\QUICKLAUNCH.REG" "REGEDIT /S .\SERVICES.REG" ".\COMMANDS.CMD" "REGEDIT /S .\SETUSER.REG" Thanx in advance / SwedenXP (It takes all three to express what I feel...)
  6. It´s all in the "search" funtion of this forum. It´s much more fun if You find out by Yourself...
  7. @RyanVM, Thank You very much for that clarification! / SwedenXP Hope You understand why the beginning of this thread confused me...
  8. I find them where I wrote... And thats the point. If I find them, "auto-generated", why do I have to generete them myself and add them to my svcpack.inf under [ProductCatalogsToInstall]? As mentioned in the original first post and some answers... / SwedenXP, still
  9. Yeah, I can acccept that. But the .cat file seems to be generated anyway into a catalog ie. C:\WINDOWS\$hf_mig$\KB834707\update. In there I find the KB834707.CAT. And so on for every update I have done via my svcpack.inf / SwedenXP slightly
  10. Gentlemen - what good does the .cat entry under [ProductCatalogsToInstall] do? I get my unattended XPProSP2 + all updates to work anyway... Suggestions please. / SwedenXP B)
  11. 3 C:\ drives? Is that equivalent of a split personality??? (sorry for the joke) My suggestions is that You; Keep Windows om C:\Windows Keep Your programs on C:\Programs And if You want Your Documents and Setting on a seperat drive do so (ie D:\Documents and Settings). Good luck / SwedenXP B)
  12. Can verify Mr Bashrat´s post... unfourtunately... But I´m really interested in the possibility of getting it done / SwedenXP B)
  13. Regshot - of course Get it here http://the7thlab.mybesthost.com/ or at pcworld.com or at majorgeeks.com / SwedenXP B)
  14. You make good sence MCT - I might try NLite - just fo fun B) And too hp38guser - nice tip, but I already use diskeeper regularly! / SwedenXP B)
  15. Dear Mr MCT - thanx fro Your good advices... But I have managed quite allright without NLite before. I really belive it´s a wonderfol tool. The question is; Is the performance of a XP Pro SP2 worse than XP Pro SP1 + all updates? The cleaning out of 100´s of MB sounds good, but I have no HD space problems... / SwedenXP
  16. After slipstreaming SP2 into my original XP Pro cd and adding the same programs and drivers as I added to my "old unattended cd" I formatted and installed - everything worked just great But the machine really feels slower now Any suggestions ladies and gentlemen? Hugs and kisses from a coooold Sweden. / SwedenXP ps. I do not use the MS firewall
  17. This is the greatest guides of all. Please read it. http://unattended.msfn.org/ / SwedenXP B) And this forum of course!
  18. Could it be a matter of "ECHO" ´s Here is a piece of my main_batch.cmd CLS @echo off ECHO. ECHO Installing IrfanView 3.95 ECHO Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\IrfanView\Iview395.exe /silent /folder="c:\program\irfanview" /desktop=0 /group=1 /allusers=0 /assoc=1 ECHO. ECHO Installing IrfanView Plugins ECHO Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\IrfanView\plugins395.exe /silent ECHO. ECHO Installing WinRAR 3.42 ECHO Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\install\WinRAR\winrar342.exe /s ECHO. EXIT And the main_batch.cmd is called from the winnt.sif like this [GUIRunOnce] %systemdrive%\Install\main_batch.cmd / SwedenXP B)
  19. Dear Mr prathapml. I do believe that Your are right! ReGet Deluxe is cool But I think I´ll settle for ReGet Pro... Hopefully it´s possible to integrate it in the "unattended xp pro cd" And when I have learned all it´s tricks - I´ll be really happy BigThanx / SwedenXP
  20. I´m really greatfull for all Your suggestions - I will try them out. / SwedenXP
  21. I hope this is the right place to ask this question... I usually attend the "Unattended Windows" forum - and I like it! After installing my Unattended WinXPPROSP2+updates cd I have had trouble with my downloadmanager (Download Accelerator Plus - DAP) and I would like a suggestion for another, new, better, fully functional downloadmanager. So please, ladies and gentlemen give this request Your best shot Thanx in advance / SwedenXP
  22. It´s much easier to compress your favorites into an .exe file with winrar and run it from main_batch.cmd lite this; At least, that is what I do, and it works for me. An alternative program that works very well for favorites, mailaccounts and mailfolders is Outlook Express Backup Genie - tried it and I like it. / SwedenXP
  23. Thanx to all You Gentlemen! I finally got it to work properly. (added the bootstrap.exe from the original exe-file to the install catalog). Silly me Have a nice weekend. / SwedenXP
  24. Thanx @SiMoNsAyS, will give it a try, again... Have tried the /QB so I´ll try the /QN next time. It´s just the basic install that doesn´t work... but thanx anyway! / SwedenXP
