i don't know why your quote did not work!

my update pack deffinately does not add the "Windows Update" link,
it does add the "Microsoft Update" link. it is something else
that is doing it.

here Onepiece explained how to add a fix to remove the link in his IE8 addon.

I was watching a bit now, the problem is very simple, nothing creates Windows Update.lnk, but simply the way runonce command which uses User Hiden Update pack for some reason perhaps the work does not end with success, perhaps some other addon does and should be some addon that installs in RunOnceEx I think (perhaps some process started with some runoncex addon, does not leave the CDM do its job as it should hmmmmm), what I see as User Hiden Update pack delete the Microsoft Update.lnk after installation of Windows (from RunOnceEx)

however DelNodeRunDLL32 and more secure in these cases (and runs completely in Hide mod)

Code: Select all

Rundll32.exe advpack.dll,DelNodeRunDLL32 "C:\xxx\File.xxx"
or
Rundll32.exe advpack.dll,DelNodeRunDLL32 "C:\xxx\File.xxx",8
advpub.h
Image

:D certainly categorically IE8 addon has nothing to do with any kind of thing :D

and Sorry again for my English

Ciao a tutti.

@phox

so basically my updatepack & Onepiece IE8 are not placing the link on your desktop.
another addon or tweak is causing it.

@OnePiece
@user_hidden

The only other AddOnns I am using are
OnePiece’s IE8Correction, WMP11, .net3.5 and .net4.0.

All my tweaks are listed in nLite script.

When you have nothing better to do, please check nLite script
and suggest what else could be removed without endangering
functionality and what additional tweaks could improve ISO.

Thank you again for your time, attention and patience!

very very simple, perhaps maybe a command of your configurations call runonce after T14-T13, so it directly executes All the RunOnce Key hence also the "RunOnce\MU" Key that user hiden Update Pack put in the registry with the purpose to run only after restart, and not in T13, because in T13 does not work

sorry for my english

Ciao.

[quote="OnePiece Alb"]sorry for my english.[/quote]

I don’t understand what you are talking about, not because of your
English, but because of my poor knowledge of XP.

For sure user_hidden will understand and hopefully comment it.

What is your opinion about my nLite script and do you have some
suggestions for improvement?

very very simple, get a cd WinXP SP3 Clean, integrates with the RVMi user hiden Update Pack, do a test in VM and see if everything is OK

and if all Ok, after integrates the addon one by one (with RVMi), and do a test VM, and see what happens (and if all Ok after you make the changes in the CD with nLite ect ect)

and impossible to know where there a problem if a user used nLite, the problem can be anyone (UpdatePack/AddOn/nLite configuration/failed integration or not end well/ect ect ect), only using the RVMi you know for certain that an AddOn or Update Pack has problems

however, as mentioned above thanks to the structure of IE8 True AddOn can already repair them all, change IE8.inf manually, or make a addon (to integrate after IE8 Addon) so integrating both with nLite & RVMi

@OnePiece

I have just finished test of the integration of UP and all AddOns only with
RVMI (no nLite at all) and the result is the same: two links to Microsoft
Update as with nLite.

My script are larger than this, but this part are just for links removing.
I have added some registry tweaks, copy some files to system32 folder
(for example 7za.exe), etc, made one svcpack addon and added to build.

Vmanda, can you share this addon, with all the removals and tweaks that you are making ?

You are missing the point: it is not the question how to remove
unnecessary link, but to find out from where and why it appears?

Up to now I would be simply delete the link after installation.

After intensive, whole day of step by step testing, I found out
that Windows Update link appears after integration of
OnePiece’s .net3.5 AddOn, but I don’t know why!? :(

Thanks, vmanda. :)
phox wrote:You are missing the point: it is not the question how to remove

The link is originally added by Microsoft at line 232 in SysSetup.inf under [StartMenuCommon]:

Code: Select all

%windowsupdate% = wupdmgr.exe,wupdmgr.exe,,0,"@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-22580"
phox wrote:Up to now I would be simply delete the link after installation.
This has been common practice since RyanVM's original post-SP2 update pack--perhaps as early as v2.0.4. It has been carried over into user_hidden's qfeUpPck.inf at line 8060 under [MU.AddReg]:

Code: Select all

HKLM,"%RUNONCE%","MU-1",,"REG ADD ""HKLM\%RUNONCE%"" /v ""MU"" /t REG_SZ /d ""CMD /Q /C DEL """%16406%\Windows Update.lnk""" /Q/F"""

I don't know enough about how OnePiece integrates .NET to troubleshoot the cause. But if that's the only problem then it would be much easier just to do as user_hidden, OnePiece or vmanda suggest above. ;)

True, but at least phox is being consistent. He has always preferred asking the other addon makers to modify their addons the way he prefers them to be. There is always a valid reason, and it's not usually a bad suggestion, but the addon makers don't always want to do it his way. No disrespect is meant to phox, just gentle kidding. After all, he has admitted it:
phox wrote:... and after failing to initially convince
OnePiece to reduce his UP and user_hidden to include IE8 and WMP11 in
his UP ...
And eventually he does adapt his methods accordingly.

@5eraph

Thank you for explanation.

I am not telling that OnePiece’s .net3.5 AddOn is causing the problem,
but only that problem appears after I integrate it.

Now I know that nLite and my nLite script are not source of it, as I have
done tests with RVMI and nLite with the same procedure, adding AddOns
one after one until problem appears.

@bphlpt

I don’t suggest to the UPs and AddOns makers to do things this and that way,
to make their life difficult, but I am minimalist and like simple solutions.
My opinion is, that every software product should be essential and bells and
whistles may be added with assortment of AddOns. That way gives users freedom
of choice and motivates more people to contribute AddOns.

English is not my native language and my comments should not be understood as
requests to do things my way, but mere suggestions in accordance with my opinion.
Also my knowledge is far below expertise of the key Forum members and my
contribution could be only on the level of testing on a trial and error basis.
My motto is 4S: Small, Simple, Safe and Sound. Remember that some users are
still on a dialup connections.

And make no mistake: I am greatly thankful to user_hiden, OnePiece and to
members on this Forum for returning me to the great XP. When in 2009 I have
discovered this Forum, I have been already deep in Windows 7.

I have done following tests:
1. nLite integration of UH’s UP and OP’s .net3.5: WU and MU pointing to MU?
2. RVMI integration of UH’s UP and OP’s .net3.5: WU and MU pointing to MU?
3. nLite integration of UH’s UP and UH’s .net3.5: MU pointing to MU.
4. nLite integration of OP’s .net3.5: WU and MU pointing to MU?

I leave t to you to come to the conclusions what, how and why it is happening.

So let me get this straight.

I) All the tests you've run show that you end up with a link labeled Microsoft Update that redirects to Microsoft Update, and that's OK, right?
II) But if you use OnePiece's .NET3.5 addon then you also end up with a link labeled Windows Update that also redirects to Microsoft Update, and that's the one you don't like, right?

Do you not like it because:

1) it's labeled Windows Update but it redirects to Microsoft Update, or
2) because you already have a link going to Microsoft Update so you don't need another link going to the same place, or
3) you want both links removed?

If it's (1), I don't think you can really do anything about that if you indeed want to "upgrade" to using Microsoft Update. (Some folks prefer sticking with Windows Update.) Once you upgrade, then I think that any attempt to go to Windows Update will send you to Microsoft Update instead. So the easiest way to handle it is to just delete the "extra" link, either one since they now both end up in the same place. What user_hidden did, that OP did not (and why), to prevent the "extra" link from remaining I don't know.

Cheers and Regards

so there is something in Onepiece net35 that is triggering the Windows Update link somehow?

would need a few more comments from others that use my updatepack and net35 to see
if they are getting the same outcome.

personally for integrations I use RVMi only, then when all done
i move to nlite for some tweaks. i never use addons or anything else in nlite.
all ends just fine for me. of course i am using most of my addons only, and they are
checked to be compatible with my UP.

absolutely no

http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.p ... 307#127307

does not exist any application (only windows cd setup) or addon that creates Windows Update link, but simply the command Runonce launcher by update pack sometimes maybe not working, so the WU link original is not deleted

need to change the mode of removal WU lik, the CMD mod and old and not effective, so runonce mod and it's not safe or recommended, simply an application or maybe windows itself sometimes calls for the second time in T13
rundll32.exe iernonce.dll,RunOnceExProcess
windows setup call iernonce.dll several times during the installation of windows


however although really i do not have time, here already fate test in a VM right now User Hiden Update Pack + OnePiece IE + DotNet35 (with RVMi)
Image
and I see no problems ?? no Windows Update.lnk

Ciao a tutti.

Even though you didn't answer any of my questions, I was just trying to help you clarify what exactly the issue is, that's all. In the meantime, both OP and u_h have said, if they understand what your issue is, it isn't in their packs and it doesn't happen when they try it. So I guess the ball is back in your court.

@all
after my test I have not seen problems, however is even if the problem can be, and one thing trope trivial, we hold even call it a problem or a bug that, and only a link, which has nothing to do with Update pack, I mean and only a modification Cosmetic nothing else

As mentioned above if someone finds a certain problem, here just use an addon like

After installing UpdatePack 0913 with Ricks-YumeYao_IE8_Addon_Nosetuperr_ENU_1_4_14.7z, IE8 hangs after launching it.
I used the same addon with the previous UpdatePack and IE8 ran fine. The new pack is one variable. the other variables
that changed from this install to the last (Aug) install were:

Code: Select all

Ricks-YumeYao_MicrosoftVC78910RuntimeLibraries_MixedAddon_2_1_5.7z
flash_AiO_slim.exe (Version: 11.4.402.265/11.6.6.636)
java7u07.exe
IE8 won't display anything and the tab shows Connecting. Even without a network connection, IE8 hangs and doesn't show
the normal display when there is no connectivity. I can access IE options etc. without problems.

If anyone has a similar setup or knows what might be causing this, please let me know if IE8 is working for you.

adric,

I have a VM with:
updatepack 0913
Ricks-YumeYao_IE8_Addon_Nosetuperr_ENU_1_4_14.7z
Ricks-YumeYao_MicrosoftVC78910RuntimeLibraries_MixedAddon_2_1_5.7z

but I use my own flash and java addons.

IE8 runs fine in the VM.

Actually I should clarify to be more precise:
I modify the IE8 addon to correct a very, very minor cosmetic problem and
I modify the MixedVCRuntime to remove the "7" dlls because updatepack 0913 already has them.

Maybe my VM is too different from your setup to really compare them.

Looks like a preloaded app that I always use is breaking something in IE8 on XP. It's called FreshDownload, but still
works on Win7. It may be that something has changed on the system/addon side which is causing FreshDownload
fdcatch.dll to break IE8. Always worked okay up to now. Still not sure what the root cause is.

Nope .... all that you mention only take up minimal space requirements.

I have a little problem setting DEP on my XP !
I opted for "Turn OFF DEP" in nlite...although it results in being turned off it bothers me that inside the boot.ini it appears both settings.. noexecute=optin (Xp, MS default) and
noexecute=alwaysoff (my default)...
I wonder where is the fault ? ;))
my present boot.ini looks like this:

Code: Select all

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /noexecute=alwaysoff
And each time I have to manually edit boot.ini by cutting the "alwaysoff" and paste it replacing the "optin" setting

Is it a nlite or an enforced setting inside the present u_h post SP3 pack ?
I say this because the 5eraph 64 bits post sp2 pack it listens more accurately to this matter and it shows only the alwaysoff setting , presetted by my inside the nlite :o
so DEP is invoked 2 times..obviuosly the latter is the final executive command, the decisive one...yet I want to clean this mess without the manul intervention, everytime ...

my boot.ini below from a default install of XP SP3 and my update pack, so possibly an nLite issue.

Code: Select all

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

nlite has never been able to apply the "noexecute=alwaysoff" setting properly.
You'll have to do it manually...

I was afraid to hear that,
though behaves well on xp 64 bits, maybe because MS does not force the optin settings in boot.ini...

I just finished testing my latest xp and it gives me a strange

"File not found. <rspndr -i>"

message..pressing ok it continues without other error

I use this 5eraph's addon to remove Link Layer Discovery Service:
http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=101638

could be that an update from MS or a change in U_h post sp3 pack makes that addon incompatible ?

The RunPostSetupCommands directive in the [T13] section of qfeUpPck.inf was significantly altered by user_hidden in update pack version 20120814. The error is harmless, but the addon has been updated to correct the error.

The addon for OnePiece's update pack does not need updating.

next update pack will have DirectX 9.0C removed.
this was done to save some download bandwidth for some and CD space on integrations.
if you still want to add DirectX simply use one of many available on the forum or if you wish
to use mine it is here: Microsoft DirectX 9.0c End User Runtime June 2010 9.29.1962 (x86)

where to find the the exact file names of each version of visual basic and visual C there is ?

for example the Visual C++ 6.0 run-time components are enumerated here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/259403

I want the same for each and every version

code65536 has something but he goes way to much in detail...but not saying which is which...

ok, thank you !
The fact is that I have a home made addon, inno based, which includes this stuff besides something else...so I need to build a special, dedicated addon to avoid the double "carriage" :)

plz add the Microsoft DirectX 9.0c Runtimes back because all users normally install this, so it would be great. cant you make a another pack at least with Microsoft DirectX 9.0c Runtimes ?
