It's this line here

D:\Banc de lucru\Updates XP x86\Addon_DirectX32_9.0c_Runtimes_201006.7z

I've never tried a DirectX add-on, but my method works as well: extract it, delete the x64 CAB files and put it in a folder in $OEM$. Run setup.exe from GUI RunOnce with the /SILENT switch from the XP CD.

Hope that helps

Yes, I know that this method works but I had my reasons when I chose an addon instead...

Thank you anyway.

I even tried with another DirectX addon found at http://sereby.org/site/downloads - it's not working either...

Later edit:

I also tried to make a sfx compressed file with Winrar. The dlls are decompressed in a temporary folder and this command is executed:

%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 dxrt.inf

Where dxrt.inf is from the first addon.

No luck.

Seems like during Windows setup the installation of inf files is not working properly.

But I don't know why...

Oh, is there a way to "transform" the inf file into registry tweaks..?

I attached it to the post...

The installation of the inf file is also copying the dlls into %windir%\System32 but that can be made easy with the sfx.

dxrt.zip

I just noticed something strange: the inf installation is only half executed. The dlls are not copied but they are registered.

I made 2 separate addons, one with the dlls uncompressed directly in %windir%\System32 and one with a simplified inf file:

[Version]
Signature="$Windows NT$"

[DefaultInstall]
RegisterDlls=DirectXRuntimes.Register

[DirectXRuntimes.Register]
11,,XactEngine2_0.dll,1
11,,XactEngine2_1.dll,1
11,,XactEngine2_2.dll,1
11,,XactEngine2_3.dll,1
11,,XactEngine2_4.dll,1
11,,XactEngine2_5.dll,1
11,,XactEngine2_6.dll,1
11,,XactEngine2_7.dll,1
11,,XactEngine2_8.dll,1
11,,XactEngine2_9.dll,1
11,,XactEngine2_10.dll,1
11,,XactEngine3_0.dll,1
11,,XactEngine3_1.dll,1
11,,XactEngine3_2.dll,1
11,,XactEngine3_3.dll,1
11,,XactEngine3_4.dll,1
11,,Xactengine3_5.dll,1
11,,xactengine3_6.dll,1
11,,xactengine3_7.dll,1
11,,XAudio2_0.dll,1
11,,XAudio2_1.dll,1
11,,XAudio2_2.dll,1
11,,XAudio2_3.dll,1
11,,XAudio2_4.dll,1
11,,XAudio2_5.dll,1
11,,XAudio2_6.dll,1
11,,XAudio2_7.dll,1

The inf file is uncompressed in the temporary folder and is installed with the command from my previous post. It's working well when is used in a installed Windows, I checked.

The dlls are now copied but not registered - inf file is not installed...

What am I doing wrong..?

Please help me...
