TranceEnergy, I think CBS is Component-Based Servicing. It is the way Vista installs updates and I guess includes slipstreaming. If XP have it, I suppose we could slip IE8. Enjoy, John.

Again, I succeeded just fine in installing IE8 unattended in XP x64, just using a batch-file that kills itself after auto-logon.

Put a .bat in $OEM$\$Docs\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\ on the image.

In that .bat put something like this:

@ECHO OFF
FOR %%I IN (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%I:\uniquefileinCDroot.txt (SET SOURCE=%%I:& GOTO DONECD)
ECHO.
ECHO. Can't find the install CD, can you put it back in please?
ECHO.
PAUSE
FOR %%I IN (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%I:\uniquefileinCDroot.txt (SET SOURCE=%%I:& GOTO DONECD)
:DONECD
CLS
@ECHO OFF

ECHO. Voila, installing the monster that is IE8

%SOURCE%\Your Folder On CD\IE8-WindowsServer2003-x64-ENU.exe /quiet /update-no /no-default /norestart

SHUTDOWN /r /f /t 10 /c "Restarting 64-bit XP with IE8"
CLS
@ECHO OFF
ATTRIB -R -A -S -H "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\*"
DEL /F /Q "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\desktop.ini"
DEL /F /Q "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\*.bat"

I want to do this with the final version of IE 8 in Win XP x86. Will this work with the final?

Obviously I'd have to change the file names in the .bat.

MS is shooting themself in the foot with this. I will never install vista for personal use (again), and i will never use IE8 either if the final is not possible to integrate into xp, x64 xp in my case. Also the RC1 is totally unusable for me.

simple solution: firefox
