can you type what was writing in it

i wanna see what have been getting this down

it seems an error i would like to see

@DaRk MaDnEsS
following is from ref.chm
DefaultHide
Specifies that answers in the answer file are defaults. Unlike UnattendMode = ProvideDefault, Setup does not display the user interface to end users if you specify in the answer file all the answers relating to a particular Setup page. If you specify only subsets of the answers on a page, the page appears with the provided answers. The end user can modify any of the answers on the displayed page.
Use UnattendMode = DefaultHide in deployment scenarios where an administrator might want only end users to provide the administrator password on the computer. This behavior is the default if you do not specify unattended mode.
FullUnattended
Specifies a fully unattended GUI-mode Setup. If you do not specify a required Setup answer in the answer file, Setup generates an error.
During an attended Setup, improperly signed hardware drivers generate a warning dialog box. If UnattendMode = FullUnattended, then Setup does not install hardware drivers unless they are properly signed.
Use UnattendMode = FullUnattended in deployment scenarios where you require a complete unattended installation.

I was getting also some different errors with FullUnattended switch, that's why I now using DefaultHide switch (it works like FullUnattended switch if you have all answers in winnt.sif)

Ah :D

Hmm, weird that I did get warnings with that line.

But everything seems to work normally now. :)

Auch, are you okay?

Girl on the photo is Norwegian (former M2M) singer Marion Rav(e)n.
Met her in person when she was performing at Tusenfryd (amusement park near Oslo/Norway), I flew there (from the Netherlands) just to see her :P

Sorry to hear about your accident, scarface. They can be stressful, even if nobody gets hurt. I hope you feel better soon.

If you feel like posting your mod then I'd be happy to have a look.

I always assumed that was a picture of your girlfriend, bartgrefte. She's nice.

Girlfriend? I wish :P
She's hooked up with prof. snowboarder Andreas Wiig, I don't stand a chance against him :rolleyes:
Anyway, she's nice indeed. After arriving there she walked around the audience, talking with them, between the soundcheck and the performace too :) , she even took her time for pictures :D

Hope I meet her again when I go to Oslo in a few months. Waiting till there's a lot of snow (and I can afford going there...)

Exactly what do you mean with all this? You extended 5eraph's updatepack? And what is 'softy the snowman' (and why would you add this?)?

You could cut the file size in half by creating an addon for this mod, scarface. You also wouldn't need to rebuild it every time I release a new update pack, which may end up being within the next few days for KB976098-v2 and whatever Microsoft may release tomorrow. ;)

BTW, neither KB905474 nor KB892130 are necessary with XP/2003 x64. Don't include them. :)

this is a first updatepack but the result is quite amazing for a first release. well at least for graphic change but shell32 needs to be modified because ive used restorator2007 in shareware and it has put watermark. i dont know if ill pursue that. i dont even have compatible drivers for my hardware.quite weird since there are some for vista 64.

5eraph,

Firstly, thank you for your update packs. Your hard work is much appreciated.

I have been using the packs for the past year with no issues up until a few days ago.

My main system is a recent build running XP64 SP2 MSDN + your 2009-10_1 update pack with the IE8 2009-10_1 addon using RVM Integrator 1.6 with a basic unattended winnt.sif and no other modifications. I have installed about 20 applications on this system with no issues.

I have recently encountered a problem with the installation of the x64 version of Jungle Disk. Windows Installer (msiexec.exe) crashes moments after I click "Install" on the first installation screen with the error "The installer service could not be accessed".

I have contacted Jungle Disk support and they responded with the following:

This is a generic error that is generated if the local Installer Service has a problem.

Please consult Microsoft's KB for help with this issue.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315353


The fix suggested in the KB did not help, and the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT permissions were already set correctly.

For testing I created two clean XP64 SP2 (MSDN sourced) VMWare 7 installations:

1) No update packs or addons: No problems, Jungle Disk 3.01 installation goes smoothly. I reverted back to a clean snapshot and updated through Windows Update and the installation is again successful.

2) XP64 SP2 + 2009-11_1 update pack with IE8 2009-10_2 addon using RVM Integrator 1.6: JD installation fails.

The problem occurs with versions 3.0 and 3.01 of the Jungle Disk Desktop Edition software. Older versions install successfully but these appear to be using a different installer engine.

Downloading the software requires a login but I can provide the installation file if you want to test it. It is a generic installation file and once installed it cannot function without a paid account. I can also provide screenshots and error dumps from msiexec.exe.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Updated to 2009-11_3. Please read the Changelog for full details.

Thank you, Tak, for reporting the problem and assisting with the solution. :)

I'm looking into finding a solution for those with the troublesome hotfix preinstalled. It may take a while to put something together.

Edit:

KB967756 Rollback x64

Description:
    Each of the following packages will remove the preinstalled KB2388997 update from a Windows installation or installation source, respectively. The installer will also remove previous updates to MSI.dll newer than KB967756 if they have been slipstreamed by nLite.
Details:
    General:
    • Are not necessary with update pack v2009-06_2 or earlier.
    • Are not necessary with update packs v2009-11_3 through v2010-05_1.
    • The following files are replaced:
      • MSI.dll and MSIHnd.dll
      • wMSI.dll and wMSIHnd.dll
    • QFECheck update verification is maintained.
      • Registry entries for KB2388997 are removed.
      • Registry entries for KB967756 are added.
    • Proper file signatures are maintained.
      • Removes KB2388997.cat from the catalog database.
      • Adds KB967756.cat to the catalog database.
    Addon:
    • Current addon is intended for update pack v2011-05_4 or later, as indicated by its version number.
    • Works with RVMi 1.6 and nLite 1.4.9.1, or later versions of either.
    Installer:
    • You must reboot for the necessary files to be replaced. A prompt will appear when the executable finishes.
    • An entry is added to "Add or Remove Programs" with a link to this post for more information.
Downloads:Changelog:
    [2011/06/02 07:40 UTC] - 2011-05_4 - Addon and installer updated to remove KB2388997.

    [2010/05/28 11:45 UTC] - 2010-05_2 - Added the MSI Event Viewer registry fix made obsolete by KB979302.

    [2010/05/27 16:05 UTC] - 2010-05_1 - Updated to remove KB983280. An addon is now available for update packs v2010-05_2 and later.

5eraph, thanks again for the quick fixes.

The KB967756_Rollback is working on my main system with a v2009-10_1 install. In a VMWare install it only works after two installs of the rollback, rebooting after each.

In both my main system and VMWare, Jungle Disk 3.01 now installs successfully :)

I've also tested with a new install of v2009-11_3 and that also works great.

Excellent work!

I thought I'd mention that I did a repair install of XP Pro x64 w/SP2 after I used RVM Integrator 1.6.1 beta 2.1, 5er_UpdatePack_XPx64SP2_2009-11_3.7z, and various addons. Had no problems and everything is working as expected.

I did this to get ready for an install of Win7 64-bit and I wanted to have an up-to-date XP Pro x64 CD ready in case Win7 gave me problems.

Thanks to all those working to keep things up-to-date. :D

Updated to 2009-12_1. Please read the Changelog for full details.

As those of you who have downloaded some of the latest x64 hotfixes from Microsoft may have noticed, Microsoft has begun to use "WindowsServer2003" in place of "WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP" in the file names for certain updates. In addition, Microsoft has begun to use the following code in update_SP2QFE.inf:

Code: Select all

[Prerequisite]
    Condition=AndOp,Prereq.[color=white]XPAMDInstallBlock[/color].Section
..

[Prereq.XPAMDInstallBlock.Section]
    PresentOp=CheckReg,HKLM,"SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ProductOptions",ProductType,0x00000000
    EqualOp=CheckReg,HKLM,"SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ProductOptions",ProductType,0x00000000,==,"ServerNT"
    Display_String="%WrongProductMessage%"

This code cannot be altered to force the installer to work with XP x64 without breaking the signature for the INF. Nor can one change the protected registry value without hacking Windows, which we will not discuss here as it borders on piracy. However, some of these updates seem to be intended for XP x64 despite being blocked by the installer. Here is an incomplete list:Microsoft's use of the above code seems to be arbitrary and incorrect in the cases of the updates listed, and perhaps other cases. Therefore, I have decided to include blocked updates in the update pack.

5eraph,

I was using your packs for some time, but now it was time for a new clean build, so I just did
untouched SP2 -> RVM Integrator 2009-12_1 (nothing else, just click OK) > nLite (just for SATA drivers, nothing else, except build iso).

It's the same way as I used to do it before. I didn't include any IE update as I never use IE. All the md5's are OK.

I use the system since 2 hours but two things are clear to be broken:
- MSI installer is not registered. I could fix it by downloading the latest update (I think 4.5) from Microsoft, installing it and restarting.
- Google Notifier is broken. It is such a primitive app from 2006 but worked very well in all different environment, now it's broken. It cannot show the windows for username and password, it just skips that step and says cannot find account. It uses 'Protected Storage' to ask for password, the password dialogue looks very different on Win7 and XP. I think this Protected Storage might be broken, which is a very serious thing.

I can't duplicate your problems, zsero. The MSIs I'm testing (JungleDiskx64, .NET 2.0 SP2 x64—MSI files within) install just fine. Gmail Notifier installs and operates as expected (including the https registry fix). It successfully asks for credentials when necessary, and saves the account password when requested.

My Procedure:
  1. Copy original source files to a new directory (including my unattended WinNT.sif).
  2. Run RVMi.
    1. Integrate update pack 2009-12_1 without addons.
    2. Create ISO.
  3. Install ISO on VMware Server 1.0.10.
  4. Create VM snapshot to allow for quick testing of multiple scenarios.
  5. Test the following, each from the snapshot:
    1. Install JungleDisk x64. (Passed.)
    2. Install .NET 2.0 SP2 x64. (Passed.)
    3. Install and test functionality of Gmail Notifier with https. (Passed.)
To test further, I need the following from you:
  • How do you determine if "MSI installer" is unregistered? Does the fix described in KB315353 work for you?
  • Which MSIs do you test? Please provide download links so I can test locally.
  • Do you enable "Always use https" for gmail under Settings, Browser connection? Can you sign on normally?
On an unrelated note, Microsoft seems to have renewed their security certificate for the Microsoft Update website. However, the certificate no longer covers https://update.microsoft.com/. Adding "www." to the beginning of the address solves the problem. This fix will be in v2009-12_2.

Is it just me (could be firewall) or are the mirrors down? I'm in school but I have been able to download the november updates just fine. I can reach the mirror website but the files download as empty, or I get webpage can't be reached message.

Tried both IE and firefox.

That error has been previously reported, though I've never experienced it myself. Somehow, deleting WinNT.sif has solved the problem. Does this work for you?

Updated to 2010-01_1. Please read the Changelog for full details.

Another new update for the Windows installer has been released. I originally intended to include it, but it also fails against known troublesome MSIs like Jungle Disk x64 v3.0x. It is not included, despite the KB967756 Rollback installer having been updated to remove it should the need have arisen.

I just tried 5eraph's Windows XP x64 post-SP2 Update Pack 2010-01_1 and there appears to be a problem. When this update pack is applied, Internet Explorer doesn't work. In fact, directories:

C:\Program Files/Internet Explorer
C:\Program Files (x86)/Internet Explorer

are conspicuously sparse, and iexplore.exe is missing from both.

This doesn't happen without the update pack applied.

In this situation, installing IE8 over the top fails.

Has anyone else observed this?

I have not, gordan. I need more information to attempt to recreate your symptoms:
  • Did you start from a clean source?
  • How did you apply the update pack?
    • If you used RVMi, please post the contents of the "RVM_Integrator*.log" file.
    • If you used nLite, please post "Last Session.ini".

I just PM-ed you my "last session.ini" file (I'm using nlite). I tried without any IE update packs, the IE6 one (what's in the ini I sent you) and the IE8 one. In all cases iexplore.exe is missing.

I am starting with an otherwise working copy - it works if I make an image without the update pack, but iexplore.exe goes missing if the update pack is installed. It is showing as installed in the windows components, but removing it and re-adding it doesn't fix the problem. I tried installing on bare metal and in a VM, and the result is the same. As you can see in the session file, I'm also adding some drivers, but having tested this in an image without the update packs, I can confirm that the drivers along don't cause iexplore.exe to disappear.

Clean source files?

Gordan -

Are you using a fileset that has been previously modified or are you using a "clean" source?

In my years of using nLite, I discovered long ago that I MUST start with an unmodified (by nLite or other utility) set of Windows setup files.

Performing multiple passes on the same files with nLite WILL lead to some very strange error conditions. Best to start at the beginning. That always works for me.

I can't reproduce the problem with the "Last Session.ini" provided, gordan. The only changes made were to disable driver slipstreaming and change update pack and addon file locations. IExplore.exe exists where it should, and IE 32 and 64-bit are both functional.

Has your source been changed at all before or after using nLite? What is meant by "otherwise working copy?"

To eliminate nLite as a possible cause, you may want to try slipstreaming the update pack and addon with RVMi into an unmodified source. From there, copy over WinNT.sif from a previous source. Then create an ISO with RVMi and test in a virtual machine.

And, if you haven't checked already, please verify that the MD5 hashes of the update pack and addon match those posted. HashCheck and HashTab are both effective file hash verification tools. If you don't want to install either of those, RVMi will always show these file hashes in its integration logs.
