  1. need help with ATI catalyst 4.9 drivers

    My friend, I think I'd like to buy you a beer! That's EXACTLY what I did. I downloaded the third file, and totally missed the second one. I'm guessing that cfeedback must have done the same thing, since our ISS files were identical. Done with the correct bit-base, the ISS is correct and has the noreboot tag at the end. Two questions for you, though, just to get the answer in here and searchable. 1. What's the difference between the CP and the CC, from a functional standpoint. 2. So, the CC in the ACE directory is installable as an MSI using the normal methods? Thanks again!
  2. need help with ATI catalyst 4.9 drivers

    Right, and that's what I said I was doing. I don't download the combined driver - waste of bandwidth. I download the driver (which installs fine, as always, via the OEMPnP for the driver itself, and again with the setup -s) and the control panel. The CP install is extracted and I run setup -R from within that directory. Did I misunderstand you?
  3. need help with ATI catalyst 4.9 drivers

    Ok, 4.9 is giving me some serious heartburn. Runing setup -R in the installt dir for the control panel is not generating the setup.iss the way it used to. Here's what I'm getting, and it tracks with what was posted a few messages up: [InstallShield Silent] Version=v6.00.000 File=Response File [File Transfer] OverwrittenReadOnly=NoToAll [{43801800-CFEE-11D2-A41B-006097B55AD3}-DlgOrder] Dlg0={43801800-CFEE-11D2-A41B-006097B55AD3}-SdWelcome-0 Count=3 Dlg1={43801800-CFEE-11D2-A41B-006097B55AD3}-SdLicense-0 Dlg2={43801800-CFEE-11D2-A41B-006097B55AD3}-SdOptionsButtons-0 [{43801800-CFEE-11D2-A41B-006097B55AD3}-SdWelcome-0] Result=1 [{43801800-CFEE-11D2-A41B-006097B55AD3}-SdLicense-0] Result=1 [{43801800-CFEE-11D2-A41B-006097B55AD3}-SdOptionsButtons-0] Result=101 Adding the bootoption=0 tag at the end doesn't change the behavior when you run the silent install. It invariably comes up and asks for a choice on rebooting. Yes, I know the ATI CP issue has been beaten like it owed us money, but the install has changed, what was working isn't, and I'm getting whiny. Any thoughts?
  4. [Release] Storm

    For what it's worth... I've been running XP since beta, and I have NEVER changed the visual. Until I saw this. Nice skin, Krezno. Now to find something complimentary for Trillian. Where can I find that background?
  5. I don't know if this is exactly what you are after, but here's my setup for managing different systems: That's the general layout. Under the base directories, I have any files/folders that are going to stay the same no matter what machine I build the UI for. Under custom, I put ONLY files that need to change. Pay attention the the SIFS directory. I name each sif winnt.sif.machinename. At build time, I have a batch file that handles the assimilation. c:\build_ui HERMES The cmd file takes the name of the machine as input, copies the base dir and the machine's custom files into a holding directory, copies and renames the winnt.sif into the holding directory, builds the image into an ISO, and deletes the holding dir. At one point I was really getting tricksie in the build. I was appending text files into txtsetup.oem based on which SATA drivers were needed. It takes a while to get it set up, but it worked great. I'd give you better examples, but I went back to using a single install source for all my machines. I'm working on a .vbs that will take the machine name as input, and install apps based on that.
  6. Call me crazy, or maybe it's the lack of sleep causing me to mis-read this forum, but why wouldn't you just put the drivers in the unattended to begin with? F6 is a pain I have 4 different mobo's with 3 different SATA chips - all of them install quite happily. I've used Greenmachine's instructions for each one, and it works flawlessly. *EDIT: OK...I reread and that's exactly what parent poster DOESN'T want to do...so ignore this post.
  7. Audigy 2 ZS Driver

    It did not work for me with just drivers. I'll give the whole folder a go later on.

    Thanks! I love it like my own child... And I'd recommend it to anyone who wants the latest 400 dollar piece of equipment for a huge FPS increase that's not even visible... Ain't that the truth? My specs:
  9. iTunes 4.6 - Assistance Needed

    Quite correct. /s might as well mean silently fail. I gave up. Installrite made a nice package out of it.
  10. Microsoft Money 2004 - Help Needed

    Confirmed...it's working. The problem was that it was missing files. And now that I've seen it's a 90meg addition to my CD, I've run it through InstallRight...now a much more manageable 28M. Thanks for the response!
  11. Following the info from the sticky post: Microsoft Money 2004 Install Switch: syspack.msi /qn Install Switch: money.msi /qn BOOTSTRAPPERLAUNCH=yes The syspack installs just fine. When I try to execute the money.msi, appending the BOOTSTRAPPERLAUNCH section just kicks up a help window. Anyone have this working sucessfully?
  12. Anyone actually have iTunes 4.6 working silently? When I install it with this: REG ADD %KEY%\060 /VE /D "iTunes 4.6" /f REG ADD %KEY%\060 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\applications\itunes\itunessetup.exe /s /v/qn" /f I get nothing. The setuplog that it gens is less than useful. Anyone?
  13. install.cmd vs. RunOnceEx methods...

    Heck, you don't even have to learn inf files. You can do the runonceex as a .cmd. Not as big a problem with quotes, and you get the gui. You can even build logic in. I have 4 UI's that I maintain. I have a base dir with all the globals, and a dir for each custom. A simple batch file compiles and burns into an ISO. runonceex.cmd cmdow @ /HID @echo off regedit /s pre_inst.reg SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Applications" /f If EXIST %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Install\ati_drv.cmd ( REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "ATI Driver" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Install\ati_drv.cmd" /f ) If EXIST %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Install\ati_cpl.cmd ( REG ADD %KEY%\010 /VE /D "ATI Control Panel" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Install\ati_cpl.cmd" /f ) If EXIST %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Install\nvswap.cmd ( REG ADD %KEY%\012 /VE /D "Nvidia Speaker Config Util" /f REG ADD %KEY%\012 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Install\ati_cpl.cmd" /f ) REG ADD %KEY%\015 /VE /D "DivX Standard 5.1.1" /f REG ADD %KEY%\015 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\codec.cmd" /f REG ADD %KEY%\020 /VE /D "Sun Java" /f REG ADD %KEY%\020 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Install\java.cmd" /f If EXIST %systemdrive%\install\applications\studiomx\dreamweavermx\setup.exe ( REG ADD %KEY%\025 /VE /D "DreamweaverMX" /f REG ADD %KEY%\025 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\applications\studiomx\dreamweavermx\setup.exe -s" /f REG ADD %KEY%\025 /V 2 /D "taskkill /F /im IEXPLORE.EXE" /f ) If EXIST %systemdrive%\install\applications\studiomx\fireworksmx\setup.exe ( REG ADD %KEY%\026 /VE /D "FireworksMX" /f REG ADD %KEY%\026 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\applications\studiomx\fireworksmx\setup.exe -s" /f REG ADD %KEY%\026 /V 2 /D "taskkill /F /im IEXPLORE.EXE" /f ) If EXIST %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Install\applications\studiomx\mxstudio.reg ( REG ADD %KEY%\027 /VE /D "Registering StudioMX" /f REG ADD %KEY%\027 /V 1 /D "regedit.exe /s %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Install\applications\studiomx\mxstudio.reg" /f ) If EXIST %SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\Applications\Nero\nero551054.exe ( REG ADD %KEY%\030 /VE /D "Nero Burning ROM v5.5.10.54" /f REG ADD %KEY%\030 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\Applications\Nero\nero551054.exe /silent /noreboot" /f REG ADD %KEY%\030 /V 2 /D "regedit /s %SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\applications\nero\nero.reg" /f ) REG ADD %KEY%\040 /VE /D "AdAware 6" /f REG ADD %KEY%\040 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\Applications\adaware\aaw6.exe /s" /f REG ADD %KEY%\045 /VE /D "Acrobat Reader 6" /f REG ADD %KEY%\045 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\Applications\AdobeReader6\AR6.msi /QB" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /VE /D "Winzip" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /V 1 /D "%ProgramFiles%\WinZip\winzip32.exe" /noqp /autoinstall" /f if EXIST %SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\applications\itunes\itunessetup.exe ( REG ADD %KEY%\060 /VE /D "iTunes 4.5" /f REG ADD %KEY%\060 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\applications\itunes\itunessetup.exe /s /v/qn" /f ) if EXIST %SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\applications\virtpc\virtpc.msi ( REG ADD %KEY%\070 /VE /D "VirtualPC 2004" /f REG ADD %KEY%\070 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\applications\virtpc\virtpc.msi /qn" /f REG ADD %KEY%\070 /V 2 /D "regedit /s %SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\applications\virtpc\virtpc.reg" /f ) If EXIST %SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\windvd.cmd ( REG ADD %KEY%\080 /VE /D "WinDVD 4" /f REG ADD %KEY%\080 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\windvd.cmd" /f ) REG ADD %KEY%\090 /VE /D "Symantec AntiVirus Client" /f REG ADD %KEY%\090 /V 2 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\install\Applications\sav\sav.msi /QB" /f REG ADD %KEY%\900 /VE /D "Applying Registry Tweaks" /f REG ADD %KEY%\900 /V 1 /D "regedit.exe /s %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Install\regtweaks.reg" /f REG ADD %KEY%\910 /VE /D "Removing Install Sources" /f REG ADD %KEY%\910 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Install\remove-setup.cmd" /f REG ADD %KEY%\999 /VE /D "Preparing To Restart" /f REG ADD %KEY%\999 /V 1 /D "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Finish.cmd" /f EXIT
