webmedic Posted September 5, 2003 Author Share Posted September 5, 2003 yes I have even gone so far as to force mdac to extract into a specific directory and then run it form there but it does not as I would like. I think it has to do with the virtual file system used durring setup and so for some reason the commands are not passed correctly. You know that gives me an idea.I have been using inf files to spruce up the installing of apps and all kinds of things so far I have been able to even install msi based installers which microsoft says you cant even do. I even moved all my installers to the graphical mode but I had these same problems of not finding things correctly. For some reason the inf file bypasses it though. I'm wondering now if I could install this hotfix through an inf file and therefor bypass the virtual file system that is being used. Hey thanks for the idea I'll get right on it and see if that works. I've tried about everything else. Something has to work. If microsft can break it we can at least fix some of it right. Oh on a side note I found a way to get around file protection. I'm trying to get it to work like I want now but I should have something for you all soon on this also. Well that is so that themes are used correctly on first boot due to file protection being bypassed kind of. Not shut off but bypassed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
