Fine. Thanks.
But where did I demand (or even suggest) to include such a thing?.
Please read post carefully, before raising false & unnecessary alarms!:rolleyes:

@user_hidden

This is just a nit, but was there a reason for using this:
HKLM,"%SP4UPDATES%\KB2485376","InstalledBy",0x0,"Administrator"
instead of this:
HKLM,"%SP4UPDATES%\KB2485376","InstalledBy",0x0,"%NAME%"

in the qfeUpPck.inf file?

Just curious :wink:

maybe i placed it in there to see if you were on your game :lol:
there are 2 in there for you, you only picked one.
the 2/8/2011 -> %VERSION%

really harmless as you know, actually was rectified in my local build,
and is ready for next pack release.

Trouble with update pack

Post by eddie11013 » Mon Feb 14, 2011 6:04 pm

I made a new nlited DVD disc Friday, rebooted, but it skipped the step - press any key to boot from cd - and went straight into regular windows. I then put my "old" backup DVD disc, using last month’s update pack, and it showed the “press any key” part. Bottom line, after a lot of trial and error, I discovered that the source of my problem was this new version of the update pack. With everything, except update pack, everything worked, with update pack, failure. FYI, I don’t have a burning “need” to reformat.

My only question is, if I did indeed “need” to reformat before next month, can this “update pack” be installed after a slipstream installation? Whenever I start a new “nlite” DVD project, I always start from scratch - original windows xp pro source, files manually copied over and then integrate everything. Since I had an issue, I got a fresh copy of the ’nlite program and SP3. I originally posted on the nlite forum, including my “last session ini”, but no errors were seen and no one had an answer for me.

Thanks in advance for any assistance,

Eddie

PS: Thanks for all the work you do to create this update pack and keep it current.

@eddie11013

"press any key" has NOTHING to do with the updatepack.

it is nLite !
check on the options page in nLite under Misc you will see an option "press any key....boot message", make it enabled.

as for installing the pack on a running system -> NO GO
but you can check this thread by dimadr that will run updates
on a running system. http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8482

It seems that the "press any key" option is set on enable by default. I ran nlite again with the same result. the press any key did "not" show up. So there it is. So it's a "no go" on post install. Understood. If next month I still have the same result I guess I'll just have to move on.
Thanks for replying.

hi,

I use AutoCAD LT 2009 at work and when I reinstall Windows it gives me an error and as solution I have to install 'KB971276'. Could you please tell me what exactly do I need to add and where to your pack to have this fix included?

Thank you.

PS: Thanks for another great release. :D

I installed this on my PC today.... rebooted and went to windows update.

It now says I need the October 2010 version ..... (which had already been installed), digital signatures say July for the oct version and Jan for the one above.

Yes, I see that too, but the version in the current .inf is VERSION="27,0,2195,0" as compared to "26" from the last rootsupd. I don't know why the online WU doesn't detect the new version. If I recall there is also a problem with it detecting the new version of Silverlight. I never use the web update; I usually rely on the little yellow icon in the system tray :D

could be this

Code: Select all

Ver="0027"
One too many zeroes at the front

Edit: nope, that string is not used

Give it some time, maybe MS will add it soon

microsoft got tricked by the calendar this march, as the "1st Tuesday of the month" was in fact the 1st of march, obviously the second tuesday might be as soon as today (8th), the closest tuesday possible to the begining of a month :lol:

although the same ocurred in february :rolleyes:

can't wait u_h and yume's updates :P

yup there is a new rootsupd for February 2011 but MU nags to install October 2010. this is a MS problem which hopefully will be fixed. they have the same issue with silverlight latest release.

heads up their yingyangs.

For those interested, Adobe released the first beta of Flash Player 10.3 today.

I know it's not particularly relevant to this thread, but since people that build new XP discs (implying they're getting everything up to date) come to this thread, I figure it might be relevant to some folks' interests.

Silverlight wasn't/isn't a Microsoft Update problem - MU handles the last update correctly. It's only problem is that the test PAGE is showing the wrong version when you visit it using Internet Explorer.

OTOH, the Feb 2011 rootsupd.exe has problems, read about it HERE.

That article indicates that it was supposed to be fixed earlier this month, however I just redownloaded the file from the above link and it is still the same file that I downloaded on Feb 15th when the link was originally posted.

Some of this is almost to be expected with XP slipping deeper into legacy and drawdown support status.

I can well imagine that MSFT has their best & brightest working on Win7, Server 2008R2, and new products which the outsourcers or noobs are put onto babysitting XP.

Yes, and the current push to kill IE6 is a "test run" and preview to a future "kill XP" drive in 3 or 4 years time.

@Ricktendo64

seems the cert can be cmdline installed using utils from "Win2003 Admin Pack SP1"
haven't tried it but then again i may just wait for a new root update exe to be released.

Alternatively, you can use the command line utility certmgr.exe, a
cryptoAPI/Authenticode tool from MS (and also Certutil.exe I suppose).

To add a certificate to the "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" in
localMachine:

certmgr.exe -add -c "<cert-file>" -s -r localMachine root

More information can be found here:

******* Certmgr.exe *******
Download certmgr.exe from:

For those having trouble with user_hidden's CertMgr.exe download link, the latest known version can be found in the 567MB Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4 (ISO). You will need 7-Zip or another compressed file manager to pull files out of the ISO.

You want the "Setup\WinSDKTools" folder in the ISO. You must install the MSI within that folder, then navigate to the following folder on your hard drive to find CertMgr.exe:
  • %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Bin
I really wish Microsoft would not force us to download half a gigabyte then install a bunch of sh*t just for a single 70KB file. Obtaining SignTool.exe last year was even worse. At least there's a newer version included with CertMgr.exe. :)

Here's an alternative link with just the files of interest for those without the time, patience or disk space to spare. ;)

Which line entry inside the WINNT.SIF generated by nlite or Ryan VM integrator is responsible for removal of some "useless" behaviours of windows xp installation using the original disk, such as:

- the red filling progress bar, counting down 10 seconds before restarting PC several times during install.
- the windows repairing - recovery option, if a preexistent broken xp detected.
- the page with the License Agreement, that needs to push F8 to be accepted.

Apparently it does that without the user consent, which is good given their reduced utility...and for speeding reason... yet I want to know if there is any hidden setting inside winnt.sif or other windows installation file that keeps tracking that... and by switching it to make reappear the original behaviour.. I am much interested in recovering the repaire function, thanks :oops:

WINNT.SIF - delete the following three lines ...

[Unattended]
DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
NonDriverSigningPolicy=Ignore

This solves the no repair problem as well.

.... but you can also get to the repair option on an unattended CD by pressing the "F10" key at the first start of loading when the installation asks for F6 driver installation ;)
