i'd like to know how nLite detects the OS information (build numbers e.t.c.)

since i have a couple of burned cd's with an version of windows.. but copying every cd to harddisk is a pain in the a**.

any who knows?

mschol,

I don't have an answer for you and I think perhaps only nuhi can give you one. I did a search on my CD folder for 5.2.3790 (my build number front end) and found 30 or 40 hits. Many were .inf files. You may find one better than the rest. If you put your CD into your drive, the label will show up in My Computer (mine is ARMPXOEM_EN). If you Google this, you should be able to determine what it is.

Hope this helps, John.

I don't know for sure... The build numbers are probably extracted from the DriverVer directive in the ..\I386\DEFLTWK.INF file.
