[shell]CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%systemdrive%\Resources\Themes\Theme.msstyles"

Try changing %systemdrive% to %windir%

ALSO: ...\Resources\Themes\Theme.msstyles , should point to a

*.theme file , although *.msstyles may work to set a style, I've never tried that.

%systemdrive% = the drive where windows is installed. eg. C:\

%windir% = the \windows folder eg. C:\Windows

configure your theme stuff, save it (so far u had been) and place your theme and styles here: \$oem$\$$\Resources\Themes (just modify the first part of the path)

then open your winnt.sif and put that line there:

   CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%SystemRoot%\Resources\Themes\Theme.theme"

it gotta be *.theme instead of styles and systemroot is the "windir"

I dunno about your registry stuff, but u COULD place a file called "cmdlines.txt" in your $OEM$ folder that looks like that:


and u create a file called "registry.cmd" in ur $OEM$ folder looking like that:

@echo off
REGEDIT /S crack.reg
REGEDIT /S reg.reg

and last but not least u place your crack.reg and reg.reg in your $OEM$ folder, give that a try, this is how i do my setup.

Firstly, please edit out your Nero serial number from your first post.

As was mentioned, the theme has to be a .theme file. More info about creating that .theme file is in the Guide.

Also, I noticed you have this line in your batch file:

copy %systemdrive%\Extras\System\*.* %systemdrive%\windows\system32\*.* /Y

You can achieve the same end by placing those files in $OEM$\$$\System32\ on your CD, and that way you don't have to copy twice and then delete. Also, the %SystemDrive%\Windows part is better written as just %WinDir%. You can see the other variables by typing "Set" at the command prompt.

Finally, about the registry files. Firstly, I would not run them from CmdLines.txt as Godfatha suggests, because the programs haven't been installed yet. Depending on the data in the registry files, it may get overwritten when the program installs.

What I would do is make sure that they are valid registry files (can you merge them by double-clicking? Remember they need the "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00" or "RegEdit4" as the first line). You could also consider adding the lines from the batch file itself, instead of calling external files. Read the "Reg /?" and "Reg Add /?" helpfiles to figure out how to do this.

Beyond that, I'm not sure what to tell you. We may need to see the contents of the registry files if you can't get them working (remember to use CODE tags this time, please).
