RunOnceEx on windows 2000?


Recommended Posts

After finishing my uA XP-CD I started making uA 2K-CD...

Everything else works fine except RunOnceEx.cmd.

It just "doesn't happen".

Does win2k support RunOnceEx?

If it does what do I have to do to make it work?

Thanks in advance and sorry for bad English!

it works in w2k, for instance I use this code imported via reg-file

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zx100]
@="Komponenten-Anpassungen"
"1"="%SystemRoot%\\System32\\regsvr32.exe /s /u %SystemRoot%\\system32\\regwizc.dll"
"2"="%SystemRoot%\\System32\\regsvr32.exe /s %SystemRoot%\\apppatch\\slayerui.dll"
"3"="%SystemRoot%\\regedit.exe /s %SystemDrive%\\INSTALL.TMP\\settings.reg"

the order is alphabetically (zx100 ... next key I use is zx110 and so on) and "Komponenten-Anpassungen" is then displayed for all actions in key "zx100". If you add a "!" before the value name (example: instead of "1" use "!1") the entry is deleted only if it really executed.

Caution: you can't use any system variables like in the example above (%SystemRoot%) because w2k does not accept keys of type "REG_EXPAND_SZ" and only there variables get expanded. In the example I replace the variables with the apropriate paths before importing to the registry. So all values will be of type "REG_SZ" without variables. Don't know if wxp will do better.

Well I have been testing and trying to find information but I still cannot get RunOnceEx.cmd to run on my unattended win2k install...

I'm sure someone knows what I am doing wrong...

REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Asennetaan ohjelmia" /f

Reg.exe and Regini.exe are copied in my system32 folder...

Does or does not win2k support RunOnceEx during ua install?

One more thing I still get the promt when installing .net langpack from svcpack.inf...

but langPack.exe /q:a /c:"inst /q" is supposed to be correct syntax.

What is wrong with it?

shouldn't the reg-keys be written to

SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx

no idea about the langpack problem, always used a 7zip archive containing all together

No problem with this code in W2K, hope it helps:

EXIT

Using the guide from UA XP CD works OK, changes are reg.exe in system 32 and cdrom_ip.5 for CD check.
