Spheris Posted September 18, 2003 Share Posted September 18, 2003 Aarons thread, I'm going to expand on a bitIn a slipstreamed disc, the files are hard coded with the fixes detailed. But as an integrated install it will appear to Update as any normal SP1 disc for the same reason SP1 shows as it does.The markers in the registry that are used to ID updates and hotfixes aren't there because they are not needed and no mechanism provided at install time - that is why the opk method includes the instruction to slipstream and force the hotfix installers to enter those entries and use the mechanism that allows qcheck and WU to see the hotfixes.I'm going to throw a question out before we go further with thisIf the idea is to make a slipstreamed disc or to create a hotfix enabled streamline of their installs as separate entities.either can be done, neither have any benefit functionally over the other. But both require different approaches and Aaron/medic and I will do our best to accomodate the general concensus on how to approach itbut we need a clear answer.so the answers on this thread should go as:1: Slipstream compacted (updated files and cats only) no hotfix accompanying them2: Mixed approach (same as above but with the hotfix packs to enable qcheck and WU to tell you what you already know is there)3: Any reasonable alternate, you would like researched. Or to proposeI want this thred kept clear and clean, we can start discussions and debates over ideas in following threads. But lets keep this one to answers only on direction, so we can get a clear view and get on with making it happen.Fair enough? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
