  10. exporting large binary values with vbs scripts is rather difficult so the simple solution i have is to silently export this reg file with a script like so ----------------the reg file------------------------ Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\MS Exchange-Einstellungen] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\MS Exchange-Einstellungen\0a0d020000000000c000000000000046] "1102032f"=hex:01,00,00,00,75,00,00,00,0c,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,38,a1,bb,10,05,\ e5,10,1a,a1,bb,08,00,2b,2a,56,c2,00,00,45,4d,53,4d,44,42,2e,44,4c,4c,00,00,\ 00,00,00,00,00,00,1b,55,fa,20,aa,66,11,cd,9b,c8,00,aa,00,2f,c4,5a,0c,00,00,\ 00,53,41,47,53,52,56,31,00,2f,6f,3d,44,53,43,20,53,6f,66,74,77,61,72,65,20,\ 41,47,2f,6f,75,3d,44,53,43,53,41,47,2f,63,6e,3d,52,65,63,69,70,69,65,6e,74,\ 73,2f,63,6e,3d,63,64,00,00,00,00 ---------------end of reg file------------------------ -------------------export script (1)--------------------- Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") WshShell.Run ("regedit /s path\regfile.reg") WScript.Quit ---------------------end------------------------------- if you prefer to use environment variables use this script --------------------export script(2)--------------------- Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") WshShell.Run (WshShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("regedit /s %var_name%\path\regfile.reg")) WScript.Quit
  11. the switch to use with msi file is /QN and about the hotfixes it's not a question of to many or not it's a question of whether you need them or not, so if you for eg install hotfixes for outlook or wmp9 and you don't use these programs in windows then u defenatly don't need these hotfixes or you install hotfixes that deal with different hardware you don't own or with other software conflicts you don't have, is another example
  12. sorry for that i've corrected the mistake just copy and paste again
  13. i supose that you want to run a script that will import those registry values so here you go(you know the deal save as *.vbs in notepad) Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\User Agent","Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Win32)","REG_SZ" WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\NoNetAutodial",0,"REG_BINARY" WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\MigrateProxy","00000001","REG_DWORD" WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyEnable","00000001","REG_DWORD" WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\EnableHttp1_1","00000001","REG_DWORD" WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyOverride","","REG_SZ" WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AutoConfigURL","http://pac.adress.com","REG_SZ" WScript.Quit
  14. if you'd check drivers folder properties you would notice it gets the hidden and system file attributes(probably by setup program) so what i did was to add the following command before using the rd command ATTRIB -S -H -R "%systemroot%\drivers" /S /D RD "%systemroot%\drivers\" /S /Q no double delete no batch files in runonce no other "auxiliaries"
  15. you're dammm right XPerties this posts made me wanna puke
  16. to remember folder view settings export the following values from registery and add it to your regtweaks file it works only when it's executed during the unattnded installation. tested it already 5 times with virtual pc and worked every time. here are the values [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams] "Settings" [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams\Defaults] "{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"= "{F3364BA0-65B9-11CE-A9BA-00AA004AE837}"= here are my settings for eg ;Folders View (details,no grouping,status bar,small buttons) [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams] "Settings"=hex:09,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,e0,d0,57,00,73,35,cf,11,ae,\ 69,08,00,2b,2e,12,62,04,00,00,00,06,00,00,00,43,00,00,00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams\Defaults] "{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=hex:1c,00,00,00,04,00,00,00,00,00,00,\ 00,00,00,9a,00,00,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,f0,f0,f0,f0,14,00,03,00,\ 9a,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,30,00,00,00,fd,df,df,fd,0f,00,05,00,24,00,10,00,2e,\ 00,46,00,00,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,03,00,00,00,04,00,00,00,78,00,\ 96,00,60,00,60,00,78,00,00,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,03,00,00,00,05,\ 00,00,00,ff,ff,ff,ff,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\ 00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00 "{F3364BA0-65B9-11CE-A9BA-00AA004AE837}"=hex:1c,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,00,00,00,\ 00,00,00,90,00,00,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,ff,ff,ff,ff,f0,f0,f0,f0,14,00,03,00,\ 90,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,30,00,00,00,fd,df,df,fd,0f,00,04,00,20,00,10,00,28,\ 00,3c,00,00,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,03,00,00,00,b4,00,60,00,78,00,\ 78,00,00,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,03,00,00,00,ff,ff,ff,ff,00,00,00,\ 00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\ 00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00
  17. damm you're good thanks for the info. i'm just installing a couple of audio and video codecs with this method and they probably don't require a restart so that's why i was lucky i'll change it 128 right away
  18. well from my personal expirience it doesn't cause a reboot but try it too just in case
  19. don't you have to pack the inf files back into cab format or am i wrong.
  20. thanks a lot for the guide i have tried sometime ago to do this but by copying ntsokrnl.exe with the hel of a cmd file and it didn't work. also to initiallise the boot timeout to zero(i know it sounds stupid) i copied with a batch file an edited boot.ini file
  21. maybe someone can tell me which of the following hotfixes is needed thanks in advance Q328145 Q329256 Q329692 Q331953 Q814995 Q818857 Q822925 VM-SFIX3 and about the Q823718 - Security Update for Microsoft Data Access Components microsoft suggests the following switch for an unattended installation /C:"dahotfix.exe /q /n" /q, can it be used in the svcpack.ini?
  22. use the following command line rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 inf path if you run the installation from cmd or batch file consider adding start /wait before the command
  23. i've searched through all the threads here but couldn't find a guide on integrating custom visual styles,icons and crusors. i used the shell section in winnt.sif but no luck. So if someone can post such guide it will be great, because almost all my unattended installation works great but i'm stuck on this theme thing for almost a week now. I managed to figure out how to apply crusors and change drive icons using registry although i can't change the startmenu icons for some reason. --------->edit Sorry for not starting a new thread but i wanted to ask if someone knows a registery tweak that allows to choose wanted visual effects
