  1. Here, this might help: the output for the WMP11Slipstreamer.exe /hotfix: command is what we are trying to achive. The needed format is: WMP11Slipstreamer.exe /hotfix:"FolderPathToHotfixes|hotfix1.exe|hotfix2.exe|hotfix3.exe" ...etc... so we shouldn't need to send the output through another array. so the output to that is being put into the _$out.log is exactly the info we need to throw into the after the /hotfix:" switch (minus the end | ) to look the final output like this: Set p_=E:\Twig06\~Source~\Addins\2008-26-05\~files~ Set #=%p_%\WMP11\Patches Set "_=%temp%\_$out.log" WMP11Slipstreamer.exe /hotfix:"%#%|OutputFrom_$out.log(MinusTrailing|)" another example (exact syntax as if I were manually typing this info into a command line): WMP11Slipstreamer.exe /hotfix:"E:\Twig06\~Source~\Addins\2008-26-05\~files~\WMP11\Patches|kb928788.exe|kb929399.exe|kb929773.exe" (forum makes it look like this is multiple lines, but it is actually all on the same line)
  2. @Yzöwl - I tested and your coding is working very well! If it is possible, the only other things are to place the output into a variable and to remove the | (pipe) after the very last file. Ex: take the output from the above code "file1.exe|file2.exe|file3.exe|" and remove the | after file3.exe A very greatful Twig says TYVM for taking the time to try to helpme in my quests
  3. @Scr1ptW1zard & Yzöwl -Thanks for the responces, I will test both suggestions and see if either formatting will work for me. Well, I'm trying to automate boooggy's WMP11 slipstreamer to take any hotfixes in a certine folder and integrate them all, without having to manually enter the names of every fileso to end up something like this: Set Path=E:\Twig06\~Source~\Addins\2008-26-05\~files~ REM -- %path% is hard coded path at the moment just for testing Set WMP11Patches=%path%\WMP11\Patches REM Folder to place all patches for WMP11 to be slipstreamed WMP11Slipstreamer.exe /hotfix:"%WMP11Patches%|%OutputFromArrayToListFilesToRuN%"...We could also use this same approach for RyanVM integrator as well as nLite and Driverpacks, however, the output would need to be in a different format for each but still the same basic format of pulling the file names and putting them into a variable. Thus making it very easy for those of us who use the same tweaks all the time, however just need updates added to a new build, resulting in a completely unattended creation of a Windows Build.... only work required is to place the updated files into specific folders. Thanks both!
  4. Hey all, I'm can seem to figure out the code to do this... I'm trying to make a batch file do a "DIR /B/ON" and list only the file names in this formatting like below into a variable file1.exe|file2.exe|file3.exe|file4.exe (separated by a | "pipe" ) Any ideas on how to go about doing so? thanks
  5. Is your Indexing Service stopped or disabled?
  6. I've never played the game so I don't know much about it... but from what little searching I've done... doesn't TF2 have some DirectX10 textures?? if so, this could be a good reason for the drop in frame rate if the game is actually partially displaying in DirectX10 with higher graphics/shaders. Which would be logical that Vista would run slower if it actualy is running DX10 shaders, where as XP only can run DX9.
  7. 3rd link on google when searching for "windows xp prefetch": http://windowsitpro.com/article/articleid/...p-prefetch.html The most basic explination... it helps speed things up.
  8. Hi All, I'm trying to be able to reset a User ID on a few domains from a command prompt, however, I'm having some issues. I know I can use the 'net user <user> * /Domain' command, however that only resets it on the current domain. Does anyone have any feedback on how I can go about resetting a User ID on different domains from command or script? Thanks
  9. Strange, because in your first post you stated "However, burning through roxio / nero works fine"I'm lost as to how the application doesn't appear to be installed... however, burns fine.... try this: Change the following Registry key to have the value of 0: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoCDBurning (0=Enable CD Burning, 1=Disable CD Burning) Open My Computer Right-Click on the drive w/ the problem Properties Recording Tab and then check the "Enable CD Recording On This Drive" box. If the recording tab does not show, they XP doesn't think the drive is a writer for some reason. If you get any errors let us know what they are so that we can further try to help.
  10. Roxio always hoses things (I hate it)... anyways, here is your fix. Save the following code to 'RemoveFilters.reg' Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}] "LowerFilters"=- "UpperFilters"=- Run the 'RemoveFilters.reg' file on the system, go to Device Manager and Uninstall the burner and then select to have it scan for hardware again. Reboot the system and it should be fixed now. (may have to reinstall Roxio after the filters are removed)
  11. Is this possible just using a PXE boot TFTP share as well? because I don't use winnt32 as listed above, just a standard install as if it were installing from a CD...
  12. Q1: How long of a cable can I use to connect my device? A1: In practice, the USB specification limits the length of a cable between full speed devices to 5 meters (a little under 16 feet 5 inches). For a low speed device the limit is 3 meters (9 feet 10 inches). *** I personally don't see a need for such a long cable... and if needed it would be much easier to port the USB A/B connections to some CAT5, which has a much longer range (...just me rambling on). Wrapping up the cable would potentially limit the amount of interference the cable is getting, make sure that you don't have it running over any power cables or florescent lights. ... I guess it is a waiting game to find out if our suggestions helped.
  13. Several things can cause this... Power Supply could be underpowered for your system and not outputting correct voltages/amps. Is the device that you are plugging in powered (has its own power adapter)? if not leans the issue more towards the first issue. If the device DOES have its own power, if you can, test it on another system. If it works the device is not faulty, if it doesn't, replace the device. If it Does work on another system, check the physical USB port on the failing system to check for bent connections that could be shorting out (Very common problem that I have seen, caused by forcing the USB cable in upside down). If the USB is shorting out, try to bend the connectors to their proper positions. If unabled to, disable them in BIOS and either get a USB card, or replace the motherboard. also Try multiple USB ports on the system. None of the above work? Reinstall the USB Chipset driver for your motherboard with the latest driver version, as well as the drivers for the device. If all the above still doesn't resolve the issue, and multiple devices don't work, but work on other systems that isolates the issue to your system. You have 2 drastic options after that... reinstall windows and test... still doesn't work after drivers are installed? then it is a hardware issue and in most cases is caused by insufficient power or failing motherboard.... Hope that helps.
  14. Yes, you should be able to use ERD Commander to be able to access your data. Also, you can try an "In Place Upgrade" to repair your windows installation. Here is the info in "Method 2": http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315341
  15. all good suggestions.Also, Netmeeting is also built into windows... and as well Live Messenger also has the ability to share the desktop.
  16. You should get a message that you have to activate now (while on the logon screen), once you choose to activate the copy of windows it brings the windows activation screen up from the long screen and there is a button for telephone. If there isn't, it sounds like the copy of the WPA software is hosed...
  17. That is pretty neat. Is it possible for both user's to run 3d games at the same time? or is the desktop limited to 2d applications only?
  18. Sorry, I jumped the gun and assumed that it was XP instead of the bloatware Vista...
  19. How long ago did you get it? (Purchased new I'm assuming...)
  20. To make FF start faster, Right-click on the FF icon > Properties Add a " /prefetch:3" without quotes to the end of the Target field Example Target line: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" /prefetch:3 Makes it start much faster BTW IE7 has memory stability issues as well...
  21. My fault... must be the lack of sleep If it has a stuck pixel OOB, I still wouldn't trust it... I encounter these from time to time, I will try your suggested program next time I encounter one.
  22. It is called a dead pixelIf it is new, take it back and exchange it... If it isn't so new, you pretty much have to live with it, most manufacturers will not RMA a monitor unless is has 8 or more dead pixels. Good Luck
  23. No toolbars for me... use Firefox, you get all this functionality Out-of-box
  24. quick down and dirty way to get em setup: on xp, from the desktop (or in start menu) Right-Click on 'My Network Places' > Properties. Right-Click the network listed (Local Area Connection) > Properties. Under 'This connection uses the followinf items:' Highlight 'Internet protocal (TCP/IP)' and click Properties button. Select 'Use the following IP address:' type something for IP Address like: (make the last number different for the 2nd computer) Subnet: (same on both systems). Click OK and you are all setup on this system. Follow the same steps on the 2000 system (should be almost identical steps). You are now ready to setup file sharing...
