i'm clueless as to what i'm doing wrong :( i've been using user-hidden's QFE Update Pack then added Onepiece IE8, WPM11, and .NET (among some self-made addons) for years and with the few day delay on his release, i'm trying out this Update Pack in the interim... i know i've tried it in the past also...

1) download this thread's .NET 4.0 - it will be a .cab file... 2) download/install 7Zip - http://www.7-zip.org/download.html 3) use 7Zip to extract the .cab .NET 4.0 to a folder of the same name... 4) once extracted, rename the folder (i add a dash and my initials at the very end and remove the chec...

ah, i see... i don't really "need" nLite for the "home-office" computer anyway... it gets re-installed only once every 18 to 24 months... i *DO* "need" it for the THREE *non-work* HOME computers... one in particular gets re-installed EVERY UPDATE TUESDAY... ok, "need" is a relative word, but it's so...

it is indeed a gray area... i once had a developer of "OpenOffice" on the phone to make sure i was allowed to use it, it was several years ago, way back in their "infancy", maybe my phone call was partly responsible for the EULA being so clear and concise nowadays :) i haven't had any nLite develope...

i was NOT aware of that as far as the HOME-OFFICE (ie, "workplace", i'm SELF-EMPLOYED) computer is concerned... point taken, will NOT use it on THAT computer... but the topic *IS* still relevant, i *AM* permitted to use it on my HOME *not-for-work* computer :) to clarify, i'm not using "one" nLite'd...

yep, i definitely know what you mean... i've seen those failed integrations very frequently over the years... it wasn't the first thing to pop in my mind with the latest .NETs failing in that there have been DOZENS of .NET releases "since" the cab issue discussion linked above and ALL OF THEM worked...

AWESOME !!!... THANKS !!!... i'd put money on it that the linked discussion *IS* the culprit... that linked discussion is from TWO YEARS ago, but i *DO* remember having to "re-cab" these addons at one point in time, i distinctly remember reading that thread in the past and having to "re-cab" to get ...

i am in-process of slipstreaming .net 1.1 thru 4.0 using RVMi...
then taking that "win xp directory" over to nLite for the rest of the installation DVD creation...

i'll update on it once complete...
(this is what i am trying to AVOID, needing to slipstream *TWICE*...)

my winnt.sif is the same exact file (minus the [Hotfixes] section)... the same exact from "this" .NET 4.0 versus the "second-to-most-recent" .NET 4.0 - only "this" .NET 4.0 is PROBLEMATIC... and it's the *ONLY* addon being integrated, so there is no failed addon in integration sequence prior to it.....

here's a screen-cap... slipstreamed just moments ago... it's from an UNTOUCHED xp sp3 oem with the *ONLY* addon being "this thread"... and i did mispeak above, i shouldn't say that IE is not being installed, i should say that it's not showing up in the start menu like it's "supposed to"...

NO anti-virus, HATE anti-virus programs, they only bog systems down and only people that surf for porn or illegal software "need" anti-virus :) FULL ADMIN PRIVILEGES... nLite only being run ONCE... RVMi = NO, used it a decade or so ago, NEVER liked it, NEVER returned to it... MD5's check out OK... A...

first post :) as my username indicates, i've been a "lurker" for YEARS (just shy of a full DECADE)... i'm no "newbie", but not exactly an "expert" either... i've "finally" officially become a MEMBER of RyanVM :) i literally reinstall Windows "at least" once a month - home and office... i make most o...
