What do you mean?

I simply use start /wait %systemdrive%\install\messenger.msi /quiet /norestart .

I am going to attempt this but I have to iron out some problems I found with the Ryan/Booogy's WMP10 and my WMC2 pack first

but this is the very next one on my list.

@Siginet...what is the order of things...if I make an integrated addon...will it be over written by the update pack?

I mean will it be over-written with 4.7. 3001?

@Sig
So how would I go about adding files to the WM cab file?
Just extract the files to the folder "mmssetup" and let the integrator do the rest?

Because Windows Messenger adds a slew of new stuff that wasn't in 4.7. I've looked into adding it before, but it'll require some INF hacking as well. Plus, it includes wisptis.exe, which some people for some regard as evil.

Ok, Siginet & RyanVM...my test pack did not work...just a matter of copying files to confirm that step.
I looked at the version of MSMGS.EXE post integration and it was the 3001 from ryan's pack

I took a look at __integrate.cmd.

It seems that the reason it is such a task to integrate a later version of Windows Messenger is because the __integrate.cmd only asks for msmsgs.exe

Would it be possible for the next release of the pack to call the new files to replace old WM files by using a separate directory and calling all files in that dir by star-dot-star?

For instance anything in rvmtemp\extracted\mmssetup would overwrite/add files in i386\mmssetup and the command.

There also appears to a lot of places where star-dot-star would be helpful...this current method seems pretty finite.

* and *.* do the same thing (but surely you tested that before commenting, right?)

And __integrate.cmd is being phased out. We've got better ways to do it coming down the road.

I was thinking of star-dot-star as more of a GENRE then being literal about it

I'm not quite sure I get what you mean by genre. * is a wildcard and the ".*" on the end is redundant.

Sorry what I meant was pretty much "any way of creating any type of variable or wild card"
