ie8tweaks.ini rejection

I think I posted this issue earlier but don't seem to have gotten a reply:

I deleted entries from the name of the file and zipped it and yet it is rejected by nLite as not being a proper file.

what gives?

I don't have a clean CD.

nLite prompts me to take out SP2 so that it can proceed to slipstream SP3.

Slipstream SP3, then use a post-SP3 update pack. It can be done in one nLite session. I tried to do that, but when ut prompted me for the svc pack to slipstream nLite said that the CD already had a sp applied (SP2) and prompted me to take it out before I selected SP3 to apply. Pks advise. Thanks.

Which update pack to use?

I am unclear about which pack to use:

I have a MS CD with XP32 SP2. Do I use the SP2 pack, SP3 and SP3 pack, or do I apply the SP3 pack directly, skipping the SP2 pack?

If the former, can I do in one nLite Session?

Thanks.

Hi, 1. I am slipstreaming a retail disc of XP64 SP1. When I click to select SP2 nLite tells me that there are previous hotfixes applied, which need to be reversed before SP2.

one more thing: assuming there will be no further SPs to XP64, I am not using nLite multiple times. I used it once and the Integrator for each pack. If, however, MS will release SP3, logic says I should start from the MS disc scratch.

My guess is that MS is done with XP.
