Rollup and hotfix solution

Recommended Posts

First you need to download all the needed updates and hotfixes.

1.Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 (KB900325)

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&DisplayLang=en

2.Update Rollup 2 for eHome Infrared Receiver for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 (KB912024)

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&DisplayLang=en

3.Update for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 (KB913800)

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&DisplayLang=en

4.April 2006 Update Rollup for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 (KB914548)

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&DisplayLang=en

Then you need to extract WindowsXPMediaCenter2005-KB900325-usa.exe (or the one in your own language)

inside is a folder called "bin"

Delete everything inside exept the hotfixes.

Copy these to your $OEM$ folder exept "KB900325.exe" (we need that one later)

Files to place in $OEM$ :

wmfdist95.exe
WindowsMedia10-KB895572-x86.exe
WindowsXP-KB891593-x86.exe
WindowsXP-KB895961-x86.exe
WindowsXP-KB899337-v2-x86.exe
WindowsXP-KB899510-x86.exe
WindowsXP-KB888795-x86.exe
WindowsXP-KB902841-x86.exe

Now open your CMDLINES.TXT and add the following lines :

"wmfdist95.exe /Q:A /R:N /C:"wmsetsdk.exe /WMFDIST /Q /R:N /DisallowSystemRestore""
"WindowsMedia10-KB895572-x86.exe /quiet /norestart"
"WindowsXP-KB891593-x86.exe /quiet /norestart"
"WindowsXP-KB895961-x86.exe /quiet /norestart"
"WindowsXP-KB899337-v2-x86.exe /quiet /norestart"
"WindowsXP-KB899510-x86.exe /quiet /norestart"
"WindowsXP-KB888795-x86.exe /quiet /norestart"
"WindowsXP-KB902841-x86.exe /quiet /norestart"

Now make a new folder in the folder where you put your software.

For example , this is how mine looks like :

D:\xpcd\SOFTWARE

So with the new folder it looks like this :

D:\xpcd2006\SOFTWARE\mceupdates ( i called the new folder "mceupdates" )

Put all the other hotfixes inside that folder.

KB900325.exe
WindowsXPMediaCenter2005-KB914548-ENU.exe
WindowsXP-KB912024-v2-x86-ENU.exe
WindowsMedia10-KB913800-x86-ENU.exe

(Make sure you downloaded them in your own language)

I use RunOnce to install my software , so i can only tell you how i install them.**

REG ADD %KEY%\017 /VE /D "MCE2005 Updates" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\017 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\Software\mceupdates\KB900325.exe /quiet /norestart" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\017 /V 2 /D "%CDROM%\Software\mceupdates\WindowsMedia10-KB913800-x86-NLD.exe /quiet /norestart" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\017 /V 3 /D "%CDROM%\Software\mceupdates\WindowsXP-KB912024-v2-x86-NLD.exe /quiet /norestart" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\017 /V 4 /D "%CDROM%\Software\mceupdates\WindowsXPMediaCenter2005-KB914548-NLD.exe /quiet /norestart" /f

(Ofcourse you need to modify it to make it fit in your cd)

**NOTE

Make sure before the hotfixes get installed .net 1.1 is already installed.

All this will make the loading time when you enter windows for the first time after install a bit longer.

But thats normal, and is only the first time.

I hope i cleared things up a bit now.

Thanks muiz for this clear explanation how to get this working,I wil test this later (after queensday party) and let you know my results.

However i'm not using RunOnce but WPI, so have to test how to do this in WPI (I will sort it out).

Nice job. :thumbup

It works , however i noticed something strange.

When i start MCE for the first time , when you get the wizard...during that wizard it says:

That the evaluation version is over.

The strange thing is , that i have no evaluation version but a bought OEM version.

if i remember correctly... the april update includes all the previous updates/fixes after Rollout 2...

therefore you'll only need the following:

- Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 (KB900325)

- April 2006 Update Rollup for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 (KB914548)

I only included the hotfixes it gave me with windows update , and it gave me the other one to.

Maybe this should be make a sticky, so we know what vital updates are needed for MCE.

This information served me well, and it would be nice to see it kept up-to-date.

Just found another update, I don't know if it's critical or not.

WindowsXP-KB917953-x86-ENU

That has nothing to do with MCE2005 , or the solution to install hotfixes for MCE2005. !
