When you slipstream SP4 to XP Pro installation disk, the TABLETPC and NETFX folders are there. Howewer, you can only enable Tablet PC installation if you enter a Tablet PC product key during setup.

You can also trick Windows Setup into thinking that a Tablet PC edition product key has been entered. Add this line to the [AddReg.SP4Update] section of the hivesys.inf file:

HKLM,"SYSTEM\WPA\TabletPC","Installed",0x00010001,1

Neat! Is there a similar trick for the MCE components to be able to add both the Tablet and MCE components to an XP Vol edition?

Cheers and Regards

Yes, there is such a trick for MCE as well.

First, before slipstreaming SP4, create a dummy/empty mediactr.cab file in \cmpnents\mediactr\i386.

Slipstream SP4 to your installation folder.

Add these two entries to the [AddReg.SP4Update] section of hivesys.inf:

HKLM,"SYSTEM\WPA\TabletPC","Installed",0x00010001,1
HKLM,"SYSTEM\WPA\MediaCenter","Installed",0x00010001,1

* .NET Framework 4.0 is not compatible with MCE and will not be available.

Thanks! In that case I guess I just need to decide if I want MCE or .NET 4.0.

Cheers and Regards
