  1. Hi Guys

    When I slipstream Hotfixes into a previously SP2-patched WIN XP (which was done in nLite directly, previous step in the program - originally the installation CD is with SP1 only), the Focus disappears constantly in larger or smaller intervals from the current application I work with (I have minimized nLite).

    Could it be apperaing when nLite is processing the Hotfixes one by one? :blink:


  2. Hi Carni, :thumbup

    Is the program fully functional if I first install it, then copy the contents under Program Files elsewhere and then delete the Directory under Program Files? I mean, does it store anything elswhere, e.g. in Registry, in other Directories?

    Can I use it this way on my USB Key (without installation)?

    And subsequently, which files can I delete that are obsolete when I use it without installation? I would guess unins000.exe and unins000.dat...



  3. Hiya there,

    nice appie this one is.....

    A functionality request from me:

    Possibility to select more files to be added to the CAB with one or more launchable files to be executed one after the other...

    Whatdaya say?

    BTW, check out YAWI - the ultimate app / install launcher !!!!!!!!

  4. Hiya all,

    I have updated the Slovak part of gramiche's Forums with newest updates and also translated my own :D Config Panel Help into Slovak.

    gramiche, could you possibly update the FAQ as it reflects only ver. 2? Or is it needed after all after reading my Config Panel Help?

    C Ya!

  6. Hiya All,

    I am working on a general Guide for more types of installs, will post it when it is quite finished. I will then appreciate your comments on it and also your sending me examples of App installs for each of the category or type of silent install. I will also try to give there links for respective guides that go deeper into detail on to making this or that... Also on this your comments will be appreciated.

  7. Hiya All,

    Making silent installs depends on the EXE file, if it is possible or not.... Or with MSI on the Switches...

    There is another possibility for silent installs without compressing them - YAWI - you just give there the EXE file, put switch entries (as many as you want) and you dont need to pack it, nor unpack in temporary Dir at install or whatever......

    In fact

    1. you can just make a CAB of the YAWI.EXE and YAWI.INI (after configuring the INI file accordingly)

    2. integrate just that CAB

    3. (before making ISO) copying all needed EXEs to the svcpack folder

    4. and there you go! You can either install during T-13 with YAWI integrated into Win Install, or run the YAWI under freshly installed Windows afterwards from CD..... :thumbup

  8. Hiya,

    what about YAWI?

    Simple, small, useful :)

    You have to have the YAWI.EXE and YAWI.INI in the same Directory as the EXE Silent Installers, edit the INI file before (there are comments for everything) and when you run the YAWI.EXE afterwards, you are able to select what to install.

    It is possible to add Installers into Schemes (for multiple users with multiple needs) and checking for Groups (meaning you have two separate Installers for the same Prog, but with different setup - e.g. Office with Word and Excel only and Office with everything - and if you select one of the Installers, the other one(s) get unchecked automatically...)

    Try it!

    BTW, the Autor himself uses it for initial Windows Startup of Programs he wants....

  9. Hiya,

    hmmm I cant think of any new thing I would have done.... I tried also to download the standalone hotfixes - only the crucial ones (about 45 pieces of KB EXEs) and integrate them instead of the UpdatePack. I got the error also....

    So could be, that with my particular WinXP Proffesional CD the Hotfixes just dont wanna cooperate....

    It is not a major issue for me, as I am always capable of adding the Hotfixes after installation via WindizUpdate (and dont bother with the M$ one...). It just annoys........

    If anyone comes to a solution, please let me know.

  10. I would be more inclined to think that you are not using a fresh xp disk. If you have previously had hotfixes or anything modified on your original disk before adding the updatepack you are more inclined to have issues.

    Hm, I AM using a fresh XP install disk, eg. I always copy the WinXP Install CD on the drive (a czech version), slipstream the SP2 into it and only then add the CABs in nLite (one of them is the UpdatePack). Now I tried several installs WITHOUT the UpdatePack and they went ok. After the currently running install finishes, I will redo it again and only add the UpdatePack to see if it causes the same error again. It may not be the whole UpdatePack, only some of the Hotfixes alone, or....... could it be a compatibility error with nLite? But I would doubt this one, as I used the same 2.0.2 UpdatePack a few weeks ago with nLite RC6 and all went ok....

    before: nLite RC6 with 2.0.2 updatepack - ok

    now: nLite RC6 with 2.0.2 updatepack - bad

    nLite RC7 with 2.0.2 updatepack - bad

    nLite RC7 with 2.0.3 updatepack - bad

    Can someone tell, if this could also not be a WinXP system issue? I mean the hardware PC operating system, not the unattended install?

  11. Hiya,

    from continuing testing it would indeed point to the Updates in RyanVM's UpdatePack.... Looks like some of the newest Updates (post SP2) causes this - I would say it corrupts some files at installation, but these are all yet ASSUMPTIONS, not hard-proof Statements.... Anyone tested too?

    BTW Ryan, your UpdatePack is good :thumbup , only M$ s***s, you know... :no:

  12. Hmmm, the UpdatePack will probably not be the problem, as I just tried it also with the newest one and the problem persists....

    I will try to make the unattend with nLite from scratch (I was reusing) and maybe only slipstreaming the SP2 without any CABs adding....

    Will let you know...

  13. Hiya Guys and Gals,

    I had just an error with BSOD when trying an unattended WinXP install with nLite under VmWare...

    It said in most words this:

    STOP: c000021a {serious system error}
    The Logon Process accidentaly terminated with state 0xc0000018 (0x00000000 0x00000000).
    System was shutdown.

    I think it has something to do with latest updates after SP2 - could it be ryanvm's updatepack? I dont wanna blame anybody :) just suggesting...... I used the 2.0.2a version, will try it with the latest though....

    Anyone experienced similar problem?
