Use this for integrating cab files, works fine.

Does this mean, it don't gives you the double entries?

No, it just also integrates cab files.

The double entries come from the hotfixes, and are newer versions.

just point your xml to the new one, and it works fine.

One other issue Ive noticed with these double entrys in my case, if I look at the properties area top right of the wsim the early ver entry it is enabled = True & the later ver is enabled =False, does not make sense that a later version wouldn't be enabled?

The properties fields are greyed & can't be changed?

@ spOOf I must of overlooked your post, don't hurt to be specific though..

Thinking MS need to update the waik? Can't be an integration issue as I use either method of integration & same result.

One thing its not affecting any installation one iota & I know my xml's good to go but would like the wsim to work properly as it did previously, cause its a very handy tool in UA.

They will have to update soon, cause the new sp1 beta wont work with the waik.

So the final will also not work i gues.

I looked everywhere, and not even on microsoft forum they mention this.

There is a new waik help, but doesnt it say much more then we know now already.

I wanted to give you the link but they took it ofline.

Ok done 109 Updates on a fresh install and from within Vista Installed Waik clean, opened my xml and then saved which immediately gave me the error. Opened in Context and Removed the one line at bottom again that references the image location and back in Sim clicked save and it asked if I want to associate and I said No. It loaded fine with no errors but image disappeared from where you select Image. I select the same image again and all was ok.

thats for sure, I see some doubles with 109 for sure but by removin that 1 line all is fine? WTF MS

I say its waik, a double entry might not be nothing more than an update by a different bearer.

After that Install and a reboot ok i had xml 6 on but it said i needed xml 4 ???? what, these people can't make nothing backwards compatible??? we see the mess .Net is in right now

Hi all

I'm almost ready building my first Win 7 unattended distribution using WSIM.

Before I proceed in formatting my C drive, I want to know if the "Credentials" string or whatever is required for a error free installation or can I just remove it?

edit:

Another thing: If i run the installation from a usb flash drive with "autounattend.xml" placed on the drive's root and the folder structure created by WSIM(that from "c:\Distribution"), "InstallFrom" string is not required, is it?

I think that' needed only for running installation from network shares or everything else than dvd media. In this case the usb drive will be seen as a dvd disk?! I am asking:)

Thanks
