Simple Noob Question about IE7

Recommended Posts

:hello: Hello everyone. I apologize up front for my noobishness.

First of all, I have been very carefully following the "Unattended Windows" guide, but it seems to be a bit out-dated. I used the Windows Update Downloader to get all the latest hotfixes, including IE7, .NET Framework 2.0 and WMP11. I have chosen the "SVCPACK.INF Method" to install my hotfixes, and I'm testing my ISO using VMware Player. The VM is working fine, the OS installs correctly and IE7 works (a major accomplishment for me), but I receive some error messages during the T-13min stage of the setup (where it processes my svcpack.inf file). I can go into further detail, but most of you will probably know what I'm doing wrong right away just by looking at the text:

You don;t say what error messages your getting, but there's a

problem installing .net 2.0 as downloaded from MS at the

T13 point. See http://www.msfn.org/board/GUIDE-Integratin...P1-t110788.html

Some of the links in the post explain the problem. more importan it will help

you create an unattened installer.

If this doesn't help please post the errors your getting.

Well, I guess the main problem is WMP11 doesn't actually get installed, and IE7 isn't "unattended". I'll take a look at your link how to make .net 2.0 unattended. Thanks.

Okay, I've made quite a bit of progress, so I just wanted to follow-up here. I made some changes to my winnt.sif and svcpack.inf files and things are running much more smoothly now. I won't bother posting the answer file, but since I posted the svcpack.inf before, I wanted to at least post that so you could see what it looks like now. So, ignore the one in my first post please.

Please note the code below doesn't allow .net 2.0 to install successfully.

I visited the link you posted, jbm. Thank you very much for that! I will be going over that more in detail later today and this evening. At this point, I'm thinking I only need .NET 2.0 installed, but that could change. Until reading that post, I wasn't aware that .net isn't backwards compatible. I haven't noticed any problems with uninstalling .net 1.1 after .net 2.0 is installed though. Personally, I haven't come across anything that requires .net 3.0 or 3.5 yet, but I'm sure that day will come. Actually, as a side note, if someone wants to list some apps that require them, I'd be interested in knowing that.

I'll post back later after I try the other methods for installing .net 2.0. Thanks again.

Alright, it looks like I have most of my problems resolved. I followed the guide jbm posted and now I have a working .net 2.0 included in my unattended setup. I also got my WMP11 and IE7 working by simply adding the appropriate quiet or passive install switches. When I go to windows update now, I still have 5 updates left that appear, but that will be the topic for other threads. Thanks again jbm for the link.
