What the Best Order of Integrating Ryan, Addons, Nliting, Xpizing?!

Post by Wesmosis » Fri Jul 13, 2007 7:41 pm

I got confused from the so many addons and packs, so I thought maybe I'll mess things up if I inegrate/slipstream something before or after another

or it doesn't matter how the order is, and is it safe if I do it in one turn, ALL in one process by Nlite or Ryan integrators?!

sorry for those question but what I can do ;) :D
those are my packs and addons:

1-RVMUpdatePack2.1.11.7z
2-Boooggy_WMP11Addon.11.0.5705.5043.7z
3- Kels_CPLBonus_addon_v5.3.CAB
4- Kels_VistaDriveIndicator_addon_v2_uninstallable.CAB
5- ProgramAddons_Vista_Sounds.cab
6- NR_UAPReplace_Addon.cab
7- RVMAddonsDX9_1.4.7z
8- NR_IE7en_Addon_1.0.6a.7z
7- Ricks_VistaRocketDock_Addon_v1.3.1.rar
8- Ricktendo64_AuroraClock_addon.7z
9- MrsP_XnView_LCE_Addon_v1.91.1-070705.cab

Nliting & Xpizing is a must for me, no Basharat Drivers Pack

Peace and TIA

Unless specified in the relevant addon or Update Pack threads, integration order does not matter. For example, IE7 and WMP11 should always be integrated after an Update Pack.

Given what you've got, as long as you integrate the Update Pack first you should have no problems. If you integrate everything in the same session with the Integrator or nLite then the respective application will take care of the order for you.

I have no experience with XPize so I cannot advise you concerning that. DriverPacks should always be slipstreamed last, if you ever choose to use them.

1st- use boooogy's WMP slipstreamer to add WMP11 to your XP source files.
2nd- use rvm integrator to slipstream all addons/updates. if you happen to be using an "unofficial" update to the latest RVM update pack, make sure the unofficial update comes alphabetically before the RVM update.
3rd- use nlite to tweak and remove anything you want.
4th- use driverpacks BASE to integrate any driverpacks.
5th- use XPize to update the windows GUI.
6th- use either with XPize or nlite to change your updated XP source files into an ISO.
7th- burn ISO to CD/DVD or test with VMWare/VirtualPC

Edit:
I found my answer about integrating Booogy's wmp11 first. His Slipstreamer downloads the latest tweaks for his wmp11 tweaked addon. Is that the reason? Just curious. Other than that it shouldn't really matter as far as I can tell.

=================================

I'm curious why this would be first?
1st- use boooogy's WMP slipstreamer to add WMP11 to your XP source files.

I have no problems adding this addon to the integrator as an addon?

Unless I am missing something... I don't really understand why it would be integrated first? It makes more since to me for it to be added after the updatepack?

Unless I am incorrect about wmp11...
I would say you have no need to worry about the order of any of those addons. Just use the integrator to add all Addons and the UpdatePack in one sweep. The integrator will integrate them in the correct order for you. You can use the advanced tab to setup the DriverPacks to be integrated unattendedly as well.
Then add XPize and create iso.

The UpdatePack should always be done first in most cases.

WMP11 slipstreamer adds some additional fixes (listed in its homepage) depending on the version of files already in the source. I have designed it to employ safe file replacement techniques (only replace with newer versions of files).

So it should be added AFTER the update pack but before any other modifications especially to windows source (especially those concerning wmp files).

Also It should not be used and then wmp removed with nLite...

Ie: Siginet is right.

hmm...so could i use the rvm integrator to add the update packs, close the integrator, run the WMP11 slipstreamer, reopen the integrator to add the rest of my addons, and then continue with nlite?

Yes, you can do that without any worries. You can also do it last if your addons don't change any critical wmp files.
(I personally use it after addons).
However it generally should come before nLite. (It can be used within nLite normally also, and in that case, integrate wmp hotfix like normal windows hotfix as nLite will not fill in hotfix line of slipstreamer).
