  1. @rem SetupMgrTag @echo off rem rem This is a SAMPLE batch script generated by Setup Manager. rem If this script is moved from the location where it was generated, it may have to be modified. rem set AnswerFile="A:\unattend.txt" set SetupFiles="E:\" Set SysPart="F:\" set TempDrive="P:\" set Source="P:\DCES_SCR" set RecoveryConsole:"F:\rConsole" "E:\I386\WINNT32.EXE" /s:%SetupFiles% /syspart:%SysPart% /tempdrive:%TempDrive% /makelocalsource:%Source% /unattend:%AnswerFile% /copysource:lang /cmdcons:%RecoveryConsole% Concerns: - Syspart : this is set to the F:\ drive to install to not c:\ correct ? - Recoveryconsole : did I tell setup manager to create folder & install the recovery console the right way ?

  3. boot and logon?

    How do I get rid of Windows Blue and replace it with BLK for my Logon and Boot Screens??? Currently I have the windows logon screen saver disabled and my boot.ini appears as follows: [boot loader] timeout=7 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /sos
  4. Folder Backgrounds

    If you wanna present someone a folder with background, you have to put the bitmap in the folder (make it hidden). Then change this line to look like "IconArea_Image=.\xx.xxx". This won't survive a 'zip' (the read-only attribute of the folder gets lost). The image you apply is repeated on the icon area, and there is no way to center or align it. To produce a similar effect use an about 500*600 image and align your image inside it, because your folder size isn't changing very much when browsing. Background Wizard (free, all versions) lets you put a background to a bunch of folder windows at once, can even do a whole drive. Painless, cool application! But it doesn't make a backup of your existing desktop.ini files. Windows XP changes stuff (again) - it lacks the options to apply a picture/textcolor, and to apply a webview in the "customize this folder" wizard. What you have to do: create a desktop.ini file in the folder (new textfile, afterwards rename), containing the lines: [{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}] Attributes=1 IconArea_Image=BGPATH IconArea_Text=0x00RRGGBB ...replacing BGPATH and RRGGBB (text color). give the folder a 'system' attribute. The simplest way is the msdos command line, type "attrib", your folder path in quotes and then +s, like this: attrib "c:\folder\path" +s . Or you could use PropertiesPlus, or even XP (that's long tho): change the folder icon (this will create a desktop.ini file and set the folder to system), then edit this desktop.ini file replacing its content. Also, you could restore the old version of the customize wizard (thank you Redhades for this one) - now working from a folders rightclick menu. For that, you'll need a copy of ieshwiz.exe from an older Windows version. Put that in /windows/system32/ and copy this text into a textfile, give it a .reg extension, doubleclick to import in registry: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\customize] @="Customize Wizard" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\customize\command] @="ieshwiz.exe %1" Both .exe (English version) and regfile are here (22 kB). If you need the file in your own language, maybe you've got it on a cd somewhere. Some IE installations (sometimes even IE6), got the file in "ie4shlnt.cab" - you get the old 98 version (on a 98 cd, find it in WIN98_40.CAB). Win2k got a later version (no way to extract properly from the cd), Me has the latest (on the Me cd, WIN_16.CAB). Webview Installer (free, Win XP) can apply any desktop.ini to a folder and it's subfolders while renaming the old ones, you can use it to apply webviews and window backgrounds. - thx2 VP
  5. Folder Backgrounds

    Is it possible to change folder backgrounds with my own image or just simply change the color?
  6. thx everyone for your help. I am however still having some trouble my code now looks like this: ECHO RD /S /Q C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Accessibility ECHO. EXIT Whats wrong with my code it doesnt seem to want to run the cmd box closes before I can see an error. I could also use some links to any pdf's that I might use to learn more about this subject.
  7. I am trying to delete individual folders using a .cmd file I am currently working on. My problem is that I cant delete entire folders. when I use the following code to delete a folder it only deltes the contians found within: DEL C:\WINDOWS\AppPatch ECHO. EXIT 1. How can I delete entire folders and there contents? 2. How can I delete certian extentions found in a folder or a drive .bmp and so on?
  8. ok we been over this and U are probally frustrated with me but I have to ask I can change HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Runonce\zz110 "1"="C:\\Install\\MozillaFirebird\\MozillaFirebird.exe/mzfb" @="Extracting MozillaFirebird" HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Runonce\zz110 "1"="C:\\Install\\MozillaFirebird\\MozillaFirebird.exe/sI CAN CHANGE THIS "s" to be "mzfb" like above right" @="MozillaFirebird"
  9. another what?? repeat line one
  10. When adding applications that are in compressed zip files insted of installers with there respective exe's and files such as MozillaFirebird would the code appear like.... HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Runonce\zz110 "1"="C:\\Install\\MozillaFirebird\\MozillaFirebird.exe/mzfb" @="MozillaFirebird" Do I need to tell the system how to handel the the compressed files?? Is there a different method for Applications that arent in installers
  11. Are these app.s and can I get a trial version or a freeware version to run and test my files with
  12. ok thx but what do U think of my theory about the xpsp1deploytools_en.cab's REF.CHM FILE and following it as a guide do U think it will work. I could just test it but I would be using my home PC and it would really lick if it didnt work.
  13. thx but I believe it might work only because I have based my entire winnt.sif/unattended.txt off of the help file found in the xpsp1deploytools_en.cab . Then again I really have no clue what I am doing Im new to this and scripting so. above where U have the C is that going to copy from the c drive to the cd being created or is it going to copy from the cd to the c drive during install. thx again for all the help im am sure I will have more questions as I prepare scriipts and reg files.
  14. ok but I am using winnt.sif as my method so would it appear as follows: [GuiRunOnce] HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz110 "1"="C:\\Install\\DirectX9b\\dxsetup.exe /opk" @="DirectX 9b" How do I the 2nd and 3rd lines to fit my specific needs??
