Install Pack After Windows Install

Post by Ryedog » Thu Oct 12, 2006 1:11 am

I have searched for this with no luck. I know this is a noob questions but does anyone know how I can install some of the Other Packs .cab after windows install. In other words no slipstream but while windows is up and running. It would take me a long time to find all these programs and this would save tones of time. I dont want to have to do a reinstall of the whole OS just to add a pack.


Your help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Look inside the addon for an inf or in_ file, decompress and open it with notepad.

Search to see if the addonmaker put a [DefaultInstall] section in his inf file, If he did then right click on the Whatever.inf and select Install, you will get an error, now point it to the .cab file with all the addon files and hit ok twice.

If the inf file has no [DefaultInstall] section make one yourself.

A link to the homepage of a program should be provided in every addon posting.

Addons in the Switchless Installer Releases section are very easy to unpack and install.
