[Please Help] error at T-13 mark [Winodws cannot find 'spupdsvc.ex


Recommended Posts


I ran into a small error problem when testing my unattended XP build.

I receive this error during the T-13 mark during the install.

Windows cannot find 'spupdsvc.exe'; Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\rootsupd.exe'; Windows cannot find 'C\WINDOWS\spupdsvc.exe'

I was looking around on google and on the forums to find a solution, and I was having little luck. I did a search in my I386 directory for the spupdsvc.exe and rootsupd.exe file, and I was able to come up with SPUPDSVC.RE_ and ROOTSUPD.EX_. I also found references of spupdsvc.exe in the update.txt file located in the update folder within the I386 folder. I have no clue where rootsupd.exe could be referenced.

If someone has an idea of what may be the problem, I would greatly appreciate any comments towards a resolution to this problem. Thank you ahead of time : )

P.S. If this would help, I started out with a XP SP2 cd. Then, I integrated SP3 with nLite, then integrated OnePiece Post SP3 update pack with RyanVM integrator, then integrated Windows Media Center 2005 addon with nLite, then finally integrated my backed up drivers with nLite. The install works perfectly fine with just the three errors. I am able to access XP after the install and everything seems to work fine from what I have noticed.

Below I have pasted the codes from the update.txt containing spupdsvc.exe referenced.
