Windows Media Player 11 Final RunOnceEx Addon

Recommended Posts


This is the directory structure of my untouched copy of XPCD:

untitled8ic.jpg

Without changing the folder structure of my XPCD, I integrated the wmp11_addon.cab with RyanVM Integrator 1.2.2 and included RVMUpdatePack2.0.6.cab (+ Foxy_WGA-Notify_RemoveAddon_v1.0.cab, so no WGA interuption) with net2.0 add on.

After integration, i got this directory structure (Without "$OEM$/$$/APPS" folder???)

untitled26mv.jpg

and that is the problem i got this error:

1)

1.jpg

2)

2.jpg

3)

3.jpg

4)

4.jpg

i know this is because there's no $OEM$/$$/APPS folder in my XPCD. but why does this happened?

All the required files for WMP11 are placed in my I386 folder instead of APPS folder?

btw, i checked my dosnet.inf and txtsetup.sif for the three .exe plus 1.reg

DOSNET.INF

[Version]signature="$Windows NT$"

DriverVer=07/01/2001,5.1.2600.2180

[Directories]

d1 = \I386

d2 = \cmpnents\tabletpc\I386

d10= "\i386\NLDRV\001"

d11= "\i386\NLDRV\002"

d12= "\i386\NLDRV\003"

............

1.reg = 100,,,,,,,946,0,0

umdf.exe = 100,,,,,,,946,0,0

wmp11.exe = 100,,,,,,,946,0,0

wmfdist11.exe = 100,,,,,,,946,0,0

EDIT:

I removed my Net 2.0 runoncex add on and it works now!

Hi there boogy, would you tell me the switches you used to create that pack?

I just found the /Q switch, but after the installation, Windows restarts.

The former REBOOT=SUPRESS and alike switches won't work anymore.

Can you give me a hint?

That's allright, no problem! :D

Ok, since your pack is in english, I tried to create my own build with a german version.

I extracted and cabbed and everything went just fine. (I did this before I read your

answer here). Reboot, install Windows, ok, fine. Then, reboot and doubleclick the

WMP icon it says wmplayer.exe has version number 11.xxxx where 9.xxxx was

expected. Windows Mediaplayer is not installed properly and has to be reinstalled.

But it won't work then either, you can't reinstall - error message. :realmad:

Ok, I'll have a close look at your pack and try to rebuild one with a german version.

I just saw some regtweaks in one of the files. Is it necessary to use them?

well the regtweaks are not really needed.....

and the error u getting cause some files werent registered properly....

u can use nlite to remove all wmp 6.4 and 9 but keep wmp compatibility and add the pack.

Ok, that helps a lot. I already thought so, but I wasn't quite sure about it.

I've rebuild a pack that is 1:1 yours in german, I'm now uploading and

testing, it took me 10+ hours reading errormessages, bug huntig and a

LOT of pills to keep cool to get this far.

PS: Man, I really do appreciate your work so much, no one but us knows

what we're putting into this. Keep it up!

I've got bad news. It didn't work. I removed 6.4 and 9 and added

the pack via hotfix integration. You knwo what: It's just missing.

Nothing is being installed at all. No start menu entries, no program

folders, nothing at all.

Man, I just can't get it working and I'm already pretty p***ed off. :(

I don't mean to annoy you, but would you tell me how you created

your pack? I'm afraid I'm not able to make it on my own. :blushing:

This is how far I've come: I extract the wmp11 so I have everything

in one folder. I delete everything (like in your pack) except for the

three cabs you also have. I use nLite Addon Maker (the packs I made

with the plugin creator don't work at all) and the following switches:

/quiet /nobackup /noreboot

In the addon maker I enter everything like Language Version and so on.

The I finish the cab, add it in my win CD with nLite, no errors.

Then install windows, no errors. First time, I got the error message I

quotet above, when I remove 6.4 and 9 in nLite I get nothing at all.

Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong? that would be soo great! :)

EDIT: I just saw that your pack now looks a little different from what

it looked like earlier, is that right? Allright, I'll have a close look at it,

then I'll try to rebuild my pack based on your new one.

i built it manually.

extract that 3 files from the wmp11 installer and then built the .ini and the .inf files. added also the tweaks. and then i cabbed everything. that is all.

built the .ini and the .inf files.

Ok, i think thats the problem. I did not build any of these files, because

I just don't know how to do that. Is there a possibility that I can modifiy

your files so they fit for me?

Or can I just exchange my german files with your english ones and keep

your files?

Sorry that I ask so many questions but I'm a newbie in this case. :D

just modify the names for the three packs needed for install. (i dont know if they have the same names in german....like in the english one).....

Modify the files names directly or the names in the ini/inf linking to there files?

The names in the SFX that i downloaded from M$ Germany have the same

filenames. So, if I got you right, I simply need to overwrite your original wmpf files

with my original wmp files and keep your ini/inf files.

I put my own .cat files in that svcpack folder, they have same name and size,

but sure is sure.

I'll try that, thanks again!
