Hotfix Speed Difference


Recommended Posts

the 3 hotfix folders should be in your \$OEM$\$1\install folder, with a "%systemdrive%\install\hotfixes.cmd" command under your [GuiRunOnce] section in winnt.sif.. also if your putting wmp9 hotfixes in make sure wmp9's installed before the hotfixes.. if you done this, there should be no problem, unless you've put the wrong hotfixes in the wrong folders.

Has Aaron XP obtained the OPK for DX9 and WMP and .NET yet? Are there any for WMP9 and .net? I've been admiring this site for a while for it has given me something to do in my spare time and speed up installs on machines I work on. I want to get all of the microsoft packages in to the one i386 directory and install them during setup. So this goes for the hotfixes as well. Alot of you know alot more about this then I do, Can't you just replace the files in the i386 directory and add the appropriette lines of code to intergrate other programs?

If an admin will let me i can post my hexed dxsetup.exe that let's you silently install dx9. The file is only 451k. Any admin's think this is ok?

How can i know if WMP9 install before or after the hotfixes??

if your installing wmp9 from cmdlines.txt you'll be ok.. otherwise check your [GuiRunOnce] order.. put wmp9 in main_batch.cmd and call it before hotfixes.cmd

heres how your folders should look

Thanks but I've got the hex edited DX setup. I want to intergrate them into the setup, to the point where dx9 replaces dx8.1 and so on... This would make a bit more space on the cd and XP only installs the updated files. I know that when you use the Svcpak way, its not all good. I want it fast too!

for anyone interested heres an updated script that works in cmdlines.txt and guirunonce 100% tried and tested.. cmdlines.txt is faster than svcpack method.. create the folders using the same method ..added hotfixes4 folder for recommended updates.. enjoy :)

start /wait %systemdrive%\install\qchain.exe

the reason i used the $OEM$\$1\Install folder instead of putting the hotfix folders in $OEM$ is to stop the cd drive spinning up and down.. much faster

heres a link to the qchain.exe
