Heard him say it on an episode of SecurityNow (I think when they were speaking about Windows 8, so it's a while ago); http://twit.tv/people/steve-gibson

I listen to his audio-netcasts regularly, it's pretty good either way: http://leo.am/podcasts/sn

There shouldn't be. Can you post or PM the contents of setuperr.log, and "Last Session.ini" or RVM_Integrator_1.6.log depending on what you're using to integrate the pack?

5eraph! The problem was in the file winnt.sif. Put away the empty sections and errors in setuperr.log disappeared. Thank you once again! Good job!

Sorry about that, Svyat. Had every intention of adding KB927288-v2 back in July, but much happened that kept me very distracted. I thought it was already added locally when it wasn't.

Updated to 2012-09_2. As the Changelog states, the only change was the addition of KB927288-v2.

Does this update pack contain the so-called "blocked updates" described in another thread?

edit:
oops, I should have read the entire post, I missed this:
Therefore, I have decided to include blocked updates in the update pack.

I just integrated 2012-10_2, and then I ran a comparison of files in the i386 directory with a RyanVM slipstream vs an nLite slipstream. Can you tell me why these files, while present in the nLite slipstream are absent in the RVM slipstream:

wbdaplgin.ax
WBDAPLGIN.AX_
wksproxy.ax
WKSPROXY.AX_
wkstvtune.ax
WKSTVTUNE.AX_
wkswdmcap.ax
WKSWDMCAP.AX_

wmsdvbnp.ax

wp2pgraph.dll
WP2PGRAPH.DL_
WP2PNETSH.DLL
WP2PNETSH.DL_

Those files are deleted by RVMi as specified in the [FileDelete] section of entries.ini. nLite is not coded to use the [FileDelete] section, so it does not delete the specified files.

I have them deleted because they are not ever used by Windows setup. All of those files are present in driver32.cab, and it is only from there that they will be installed. Microsoft erred by not accounting for this; a plain SP2 installation will use the older SP1 files in a driver32.cab that is not updated. Both RVMi and nLite now properly update driver32.cab with SP2 files, so the latest files are always kept and used.

Thank you very much for that explanation.

I have another question. I am debating whether to include the IE 6 Addon, because in Windows XP x32, if you install with IE7/IE8, oobe activation fails and you end up stuck at the "Please Wait" screen, forcing a reboot.

Does IE6 integrate into WXP x64 sp2 transparently?

What do you mean by "transparently?" The IE6 addon updates existing IE6 files in the source.

I've never had problems with an IE8 x64 slipstream. The last time I tested an IE7 x64 slipstream with nLite was about six months ago.

You mean existing IE5 files, correct?

Yea, on an XP repair, if you don't boot into Recovery console or a PE and "batch spuninst.txt" in Windows\IEx directory, you get the aforementioned symptom...

IE7 and IE8 are different from the IE6 upgrade... IE6 is basically the same API as previous IE, but IE7 and 8 are completely different in the sense that slipstreaming them is not just an upgrade, but a seperate program install... I guess what I'm trying to ask is if the IE6 slipstream is "native" to the slipstreamed install os is it run as an additional install at the end of the setup.

IE6 has always been included with Windows XP. That's the only reason Microsoft still releases updates for the eleven-year-old browser. I stopped including updates for IE6 in the update pack due to problems when slipstreaming IE7.

I haven't looked too deeply into the method nLite uses to slipstream IE7 x64, but the IE8 x64 addon is a true slipstream in that almost all IE6 files are replaced in the source by IE8 versions.

In short, the IE6 update addon really should not cause the OOBE problem you've previously experienced with XP x86. I'm not as certain about the IE8 x64 addon because the new additional files for which no IE6 equivalents exist are not copied to the destination until around T-22 when INF files are processed.

Ahhhhh... So the IE6 "Addon" is really part of the update pack that branched off to prevent a conflict...

I have no intention of slipstreaming IE7 or IE8 into an install CD, I don't think that's a good idea at all, so of course I should install the IE6 "Addon" to give me the latest IE6 for X64.

Thank you very much, sorry for being such a nudnik, and keep up the great work.

5eraph!

Thank you again, my friend.

I can't help but wonder as another generation of Windows has been unleashed upon the world, how much longer do you think you'll make this required update for XP64?

I embraced W7 at a new job I took in March 2011, and have put W8 on my main desktop and laptop Core I7 systems (with Start menu restoration and W7 Gadget support). I only dabble now with XP and usually it's the lower x86 form.

BUT...

I will always remain an ardent supporter of yours, and be eternally grateful for the gracious and functional work you have provided so many of us for all these years.

I wish you the best in all things, now and always.

Your friend,

MARK STRELECKI

I'm not going anywhere any time soon. Extended support for XP x86 and x64 ends 2014/04/08. It's hard to predict the future, but the pack should continue to be updated for as long as my current machine stays running and useful; it's perfectly happy with XPx64 and doesn't need a newer OS slowing it down.

Current desktop hardware:Always a pleasure hearing from you, Mark. Thanks for the years of praise and encouragement.

Well, I believe XPx64 is the fastest Microsoft x64 product ever, and I don't see any reason to move to NT6.x even on powerful hardware. Cuz I'm running it on i5-3570K @ 4.4GHz/8GB DDR3-2000/GTX480/128GB SSD. And I am very glad of its ultra fast response and featherweight. I have Win7 on my laptom only because of inability to install XP, and I am dissapointed and not happy of Win7 and Microsoft at all.

I know that one Japanese geek is still provides support for Win2000, and I think it is normal.

Thank you, 5eraph. I love your updatepack, it's the best!

So, if I slipstream IE8 and I ever need to run a XP repair, does that mean I'll encounter issues?

Is this true even if I do the repair using my XP CD that has IE8 slipstreamed into it?
