My 1.3.0.4 final experince and issues


Recommended Posts

Been using nlite for quite some time now, so decided to give 1.3.0.4 final a try.

Haven't used nlite in +4 months before that, and last I used was 1.2.1.

Some issues I find in 1.3.0.4:

The unattended page needs more explanation. I see that some of my (and prob other's) suggestions were put in there, network setttings and user creation.

There is some confusion about the difference between "Fullname" and "Description" on the Users page and on the "Owner and Network ID" page - they somehow seem to conflict. And in which files are the User creation done/implemented - if I wanna check the data manually?

And which setting do I need to use on Unattended page to get UnattendSwitch="Yes"? (It is always "No", causing a prompt during setup in FullUnattended-mode)

I noticed that the "NLDRV"-folder is NOT copied over to the windows installation in 1.3.0.4 like it was with 1.2.1 - dissregardless of whether or not I chose "Delete after install" on the driver integration page - is that supposed to be like that?

Also, when removing MediaPlayer, is it neccessary to keep 5 copies of the same file "wmvcore.dll" in the folders "Emerald", "WMP9L", "WMP9NL","WMP10L", "WMP10NL" ?

Somehow related to HFINT.DAT file in SVCPACK folder?

Emerald\wmvcore.dll
WMP10L\wmvcore.dll
WMP10NL\wmvcore.dll
WMP9L\wmvcore.dll
WMP9NL\wmvcore.dll

And has anyone else experienced that hotfix and addons entries are duplicated in the svcpack.ini file?

My experience is that nlite should try to support the Windows RIS/WDS installation because i get error when i integrate d ryanvm update packs with RIS image in 1.3.0.4 final. The RIS used to be supported in the old nlite versions.

When RIS is supported, it can be used by the business environment.

however, integrated with cd and dvd win xp image is okay.

How can it be unclear? You select the user on the left and change the setting on the right.

As for Owner that's the thing Windows ask you during setup.

What is confusing is that previous nLite versions used Admin Fullname as an Owner Full name.

And which setting do I need to use on Unattended page to get UnattendSwitch="Yes"? (It is always "No", causing a prompt during setup in FullUnattended-mode)

Set some user to Autologon.

Never had that...how do you install your Windows?

Also, when removing MediaPlayer, is it neccessary to keep 5 copies of the same file "wmvcore.dll" in the folders "Emerald", "WMP9L", "WMP9NL","WMP10L", "WMP10NL" ?

If you remove Media player then don't integrate hotfixes for it.
