Slipstreaming messenger.msi & HMTCDwizard.msi


Recommended Posts


I've using HFSLIP for a while and it's a great utility!

However, i haven't been able to find out how to slipstream Windows Messenger 5.1 (messenger.msi)

and the highmat cd wizard (HmtCDwizard.msi).

I placed them in the HF folder, but they were totally ignored by hfslip.

I did put the MSIcabextract files in the HFTOOLS folder.

What do i have to do? do I need to rename the msi installers to 8.3 format?

Place them where? in HFSVPK or HFSVPK_SW??? or..?

Can they be slipstreamed???


Please do not send me to http://www.vorck.com/2ksp5.html . I've already been there and there's nothing .

there about slipstreaming non-hotfix msi installers (like the ones I'm trying to slipstream)

I don't know if msi installers are considered Switchless or non-switchless or what. I just want to know if it's possible, where to put them and with what name convention.

Thx in advance!

HFSLIP is really a HotFixSLIPtreamer. The messenger and highmat cd program are add-on's and not hotfixes. With that said, HFSLIP won't process those at this point in time. Your best bet would be to manually install them via svcpack, or repack them with a self extracting exe file. Sorry dude.

Don't Worry, it's not that big a deal. I'll just install them manually. I only wanted to save a little time when installing (I Do it A LOT). But, if it can't be done, it can't be done. No problem. I'll still use HFSLIP for hotfixes, it's A GREAT tool.
