I downloaded new freeware XPCREATE and ran it for creating W2K unattended installation. Everything's OK except one thing: the resulting disk has \I386\XPCLNT_QFE_BINARYDROP and \I386\XPSP2_BINARYDROP directories with SHLWAPI.DLL. When I ran XPCREATE last year I had the same problem and I had to solve it manually. So has the problem not been solved in XPCREATE up to now or have I done anything wrong?

Welcome to MSFN, Michael D.!

I do admit that those directories are created, but that has never bothered me in my tests. It does seem to be a problem if installing from DOS (or perhaps WinPE). Exactly where does it cause a problem for you.

And yes, I will do something about it in the next set of XPCREATE updates.

To GreenMachine,

Exactly where does it cause a problem for you.

I never tried to install W2K with such a disk because when I saw the directories in my installation disk for the first time I searched through the forum and found the solution by Bilou_Gateux. So the only problem for me is that I have to do it manually :)

So it is not a big problem and I want to thank you for the great script you have developed and I also want to thank Bilou_Gateux for his postings that were very useful for me.

@Michael

When i use XPCREATE to slipstream Windows2000-KB<number>-X86-<language>.exe Type 1 HFs, i always edit DOSNET.INF and remove the added lines starting with d1, under the [Files] section. Files in subdir doesn't need an added line referencing them.

KB840987, KB841533 and KB891711 contains a subdir named UNIPROC to update the original UNIPROC subdir on 2K source. The files are updated versions of existing files. Only newer files should be added.

Maybe could you improve the plugin feature of the new version to write a plugin that detect the OS (2K or not, that is the question) we build a new CD and then checks the existence of 841356 HF in SVC-HF1 and then do the actions needed to clean the i386 folder after SVC-HF1 sliptream and before creating ISO and burning?

Maybe the problem will be solved by himself when M$ release the post-sp4 Update Rollup for Windows 2000.

Let's see. One of the first things detected is the OS, SP level and OS language, so I already have that.

I update DOSNET.INF according to Microsoft's specs, however, it is not quite clear on files in sub-directories (such as UNIPROC).

I might do a plug-in thing, but again, I would really prefer to keep it generic. I will probably NOT add the sub-directories to DOSNET.INF in the first place, but that does not solve all the issues.

To be continued ...
