slipstreaming SP2x64 on 32bit environment

in address to this topic this is more of a plugin I made to solve the slipstream issue on 32bit \unattended\ly ;)
in whats new regarding rvmi 1.5.4beta: in the entries ini exists the ability to use vars for [runfile] and later on in other sections ...

"@Root" "@plugins" "@SP" "@WININFO" and there are some new others that will be covered with siginets next beta or public release

Download
this helper plugin tool will allow slipstreaming a x64 ServicePack on a 32system environment

it will require

WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB914961-SP2-x64-ENU.exe
already placed under the RVM\Plugins directory

Is this plugin "strictly" for slipstreaming, or can it be used to add an update pack to a 64 bit source (in a 32 bit environment)?

I am still running XP Prof x32, and am looking to move to a x64 source. I would prefer the x64 source be at least updated with an update pack *before* installing it.

if you was to integrate this plug'in along with an update pack what would actually happen is the source would first receive file replacements and updates from the updatepack ... but then later @ [runfile] a slipstream would kick in

so obviously you would prefer avoiding that using separate steps & in the *right* order ... ;)

Is it possible apply SP2 and
5eraph's Windows XP x64 post-SP2 Update Pack
in the same time using RVM Integrator?

No I don't think it will work that way unfortunatlly. Because ENU's plugin is executed at the [RunFile] stage which is toward the end of integration.

It probablly wouldn't be a bad idea if we actually built this into the integrator. So that it would actually allow the integrator to slipstream x64 ServicePacks on an x86 system just like it slipstreams regular x86 servicepacks.
