UpdatePack removes Terminal Services client??

Post by OuTman » Mon Jan 12, 2009 7:58 pm


lookin' at this part of the entries.ini
I know about the *.ocx which do are obsoletes.

But removal of Terminal Services client's files is really problematic... could someone please explain me reason of this?

Those are old files, they aren't referenced in txtsetup.sif so they're just dead weight. Here's the lines for Remote Desktop 6 client (left is the i386 name, right what it's copied to the hard drive):

lhmstsc.chm = 100,,,,,,,21,0,0,mstsc.chm
lhmstsc.exe = 100,,,,,,,,3,3,mstsc.exe
lhmstsc.mui = 100,,,,,,_x,,3,3,mstsc.exe.mui
lhmstscx.dll = 100,,,,,,,,3,3,mstscax.dll
lhmstscx.mui = 100,,,,,,,,3,3,mstscax.dll.mui

the new mmc.chm
mmcS.chm = 100,,,,,,,21,0,0,mmc.chm

I thought Ryan was off his rocker at first too.

thank you guys for the quick and useful replies :wink:

I asked because I encountered the exact same problem with BartPE mentionned in yumeyao's above link

I was sure it was about BartPE itself because outdated (latest release 2006, SP2 era...) ; however, ran with only 2 errors, and easy to solve, I'm impressed :D

this one is an old bug for the [obsolete_files] section or [obsolete_entries]
these sections are not bullet proof with 1.5.4 as well

.. yet not necessary with "mstsc" . but with other specific entries in txtsetup.sif I don't have an example in front of me "but when using these sections its the addon maker's responsibility to double triple check that only the intended are removed with no other changes to the txtsetup.sif file..

eventually these bugs need to pop up in integrator related threads. as they usually do ..

I've got 1.5.4b8.4 up as the recommended version to use at this point. I really wish that 1.5.4 could get wrapped up already, though. It's really dragging on...
