I'm going to hazard a guess and say that line is the ocgen entry that was erronously present in RogueSpear's Direct Update Addon V1.0.4 and was removed in V1.0.5. So to answer your question (if I'm right), it should be removed entirely. If I'm wrong, then %addonsinf% should be changed to match the name of whatever inf file is -supposed- to be used.

Well, ya' know I check Rouge's site religiously, view all the version numbers, dates etc. I did not know about 1.0.5. Thanks very much; I will do a fresh ISO and see what happens.

@Mitsuko Aninikkou

RougeSpear fixed the issue in 1.05, but, still no dice; same problems. Thanks for the headsup!

"If you could get access to %SystemRoot%\system32\wbem\logs\mofcomp.log after the error, look and see if there's anything unusual in there."

This file did not exist at all; either on my current working install, nor on the failed ones; I searched for it, but, no dice.

If you are integrating Crap Cleaner or some similar type program into your installation it could be deleting the log file before you get a chance to see it. I know Crap Cleaner clears out the WBEM logs anyway.

Actually, I allow no silent program installs because I run four partitions and install all to one of my logical partitions-default for most apps is %programfiles% which is, for me, unacceptable. Also, I run my runonce from a cmd file so I can have full control on all installation configurations.
The file just did not exist; I saved all of the log, txt, inf and ini files available from the failed install, but, your correct RougeSpear, I have used ccleaner on this install and probably this file is deleted.
I'm trying some things here; created several ISO's, graduating the components slipstreamed in each ISO and so forth.....
I will report back on results. All of a sudden I am getting DotNet runtime errors when attempting to run WMP11Slipstreamer and nlite on a folder where I have tried WMP11Slipstreamer. I think the root of my concern may be file corruption caused in part by the 16kb stripe on my n680i chipset. We'll see.

Thnx for this one, great addon. But one question. I experience some problems with KB925902 hotfix after integration and installation of Windows. Is there any way to completely remove this hotfix from CD after integration ?
Thnx in advance :wink:

Yep, file corruption was the main cause; Windows does not seem to like the 16kb stripe, changed to 64kb, ran the ISO with everything slipstreamed/integrated, including IE7-voila; life is good :D

RUPUpdates-2.1.11.13-Addon.7z

Post by SuperFreak » Thu Sep 13, 2007 1:46 pm

code65536 wrote:How should I integrate this update addon?
  • If you are using the RVM Integrator, there are three different ways to integrate this update addon:
    • To a fresh source: As an "Addon Pack" alongside the main RVM Update Pack (this is the method that I personally use)
    • To a source that already has the RVM Update Pack: As an "Update Pack"
    • To a source that already has the RVM Update Pack: As an "Addon Pack" alongside a dummy update pack
Sorry, it's confusing. If you call RVMUpdatePack_2.1.11.7z "RVM Update Pack", it has to be set as an Update Pack CAB in RyanVM Integartor v1.4.3 - as my knowledge - not an Addon Pack CAB. So I can't put it "alongside" as an Addon Pack, only as an Update Pack.
So where to put RUPUpdates-2.1.11.13-Addon.7z in RyanVM Integartor v1.4.3: Addon or Update Pack? Thanx

Something is seriously wrong with your source, Selcuklu. RyanVM Update Pack 2.1.11 includes KB926646, which supersedes KB888302. Both deal only with SRVSVC.DLL; the SP2 version in your source apparently isn't getting overwritten with the newer version from the Update Pack.

You should start again with a fresh source.

And for the umpteenth time, if you're installing .NET 3.0, there's no point in installing 2.0 as well. Total waste of time and space.

hey code, MRT has been showing up again on microsoft update. any chance you could de-stub it, or at least show us how to do it ourselves if we want to?

Didn't knew that, thanks for the tip. Did some googling but didn't understood if what you said also applies to 1.1? Is installing 3.0 enough?

I've got a problem. I've integrated the update pack v2.1.11 and your .13 add-on. When I reboot into the DVD and select the OS, setup says that NTKRNLMP.EXE is missing or corrupt. The file is physically present in the source folder..... and same as file from update add-on. Didn't have this problem until .12 add-on. Now what?

EDIT: Add-Ons integrated in order as specified in first post:
(( Step 1 ))
DirectX_9.0c_August_2007_AddOn_0.3.1_-_CNC.7z
Kels_usp10_Addon_v1.626.6000.1.CAB

When I come across a problem like this that is so fundamentally wrong I begin from scratch - and I do mean from scratch. Everything should be considered suspect. It is possible that your initial source is corrupt (if you're using an .iso file like me), your update pack and/or addon(s) could have some sort of curruption (7-zip does not seem to report all corruptions upon extraction), or even worse you could have a bad sector(s) on your hard disk. All three of those scenarios has happened to me and each one of them on more than one occasion.

So what I do is use both 7-Zip and WinRAR and use their test functions to test all of my Update/Addon Packs even if the MD5 is correct. If those all report as good, then I'll create a new .ISO of WinXP SP2 from an original CD, and try again. The last part is usually the hardest because people don't always have two hard drives in their computer or another computer all together to try things on, but in the end try another hard disk.

My main desktop computer at work gets pounded on with everything I throw at it everyday. Recently I started to get very odd errors like the one that you posted. What I ended up finding out after hours and hours of troubleshooting is that there were some bad sectors on the main hard disk. I changed my processing to the D: drive and sure enough, everything worked.

There are so many variables in what we do here, from simple human error in authoring an addon, bugs in programs, to physical issues with the computer itself. If you encounter a really strange problem that isn't widely reported by others it's usually a good idea to begin investigating these fundamental issues.

Sorry for interferring, but what's the point?

If you simply want MRT not showing up (it's a new version, btw - that's why it shows up - it has nothing to do with the stubbing), do the following:
  • unpack this update pack addon
  • edit RVMUpPck.inf by replacing
    [KB890830.AddReg]
    HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\RemovalTools\MRT","EULA",0x10001,1
    HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\RemovalTools\MRT","Version",0,"0CEFC17E-9325-4810-A979-159E53529F47"
    with
    [KB890830.AddReg]
    HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\RemovalTools\MRT","EULA",0x10001,1
    HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\RemovalTools\MRT","Version",0,"A72DDD48-8356-4D06-A8E0-8D9C24A20A9A"
  • repack the addon
  • use this new one
A sidenote. You may want to directly edit RVMUpPck.inf in your CD project (unpack, edit, pack) - there's really no need to redo it if that's the only change you need.

From here it looks like you've forgotten to integrate the RyanVM Update Pack with code65536's addon. You must use both, preferably in the same session.

Code, I wonder if your update addon combined to RVM Update pack could exceed the famous 150 catfiles limit (XP setup freezes at T-39).

Thanks
Don't ask for a different configuration of Onepiece's XP AIO Update Pack: use one of the existing vanilla XP UpdatePack with your preferred addons instead

Sorry for the dumb question but how do you control the integration order of the packs??? I tried modifying the integrator ini file but that didn't actually control the integration order.

The problem is in the order of file extraction more than it is order of entries_ini processing...

The integrator extracts addons in an alphabetical order. Rename the Windows Script addon to start with a "z" to make it effectively the last to be extracted...

Use this idea (letter prefix) to control the order of packs...

Problem-free order is: This addon pack, then Ie7 then Wscript

The order in which the processing takes place is not important... The upper part (the order of extraction) is what is important, and it seems you got it right...

That is no longer an issue. Microsoft no longer signs every file in their hotfix package, which is what caused all the problems back in the day. Thankfully it appears that the era of the 150 CAT file limit is long past now :)

I must say thank you very much for these wonderful addons to the infamous Ryan Post XP2 Update Pack.

One thing I have noticed in looking at this pack however is that KB936357 is having registery entries added by the inf file, even though the CAT file is never called nor added (which is appropriate in my opinion, since this particular hotfix is specific to Intel processors).

While this appears no major issue, since it still always shows on the updates (since the CAT file is not present anyway, nor is it listed as an included hotfix) I just thought I'd point it out for future implementations since it appears you realized the implementation was for specific archetecture, but forgot to remove the information from the INF file.

While the fix may be for a specific architecture, the actual file should still be digitally signed, which is what the CAT file is for. The architecture the specific fix is for is irrelevant.

I believe I may have not been as clear as possible in my previous post.

The particular CAT file is not present in the addon, the only references to it is in the RVMUpPck.inf file, which includes the registery entries, but the addon itself does not include the update.sys nor the KB936357.cat file.

The result is the fact that the update (WindowsXP-KB936357) shows up as a necessary update on Intel platforms, and if on an AMD platform, the updated never shows up.

Also of note, after running the update from MSUP, the update.sys file is in fact the new. The results are having differing update.sys files on Intel platforms than on AMD platforms.

@DizzyDen

You will find that there are many, many entries like that in RVMUpPck.inf. Something having to do with this addon being a non-standalone supplement that must be included alongside the main pack.

Second, Microsoft never released separate Intel/AMD versions of the microcode update. Making the update specific to a certain chip wouldn't make sense anyway since the microcode updates don't target a specific Intel processor; there's a wide variety of Intel processors, each with its own set of errata, and thus, each with its own microcode patchups, and just as it would make no sense for Microsoft to offer a OS-level microcode update for each different Intel chip, it would make no sense for Microsoft to do the same split for AMD (because this sort of thing creates a lot of hassle for them, esp. since their setup API is set up to detect different families of instruction sets like x86-32/64, IA64, Alpha, etc., but not the different implementations within each family)

One thing I have noticed in looking at this pack however is that KB936357 is having registery entries added by the inf file, even though the CAT file is never called nor added (which is appropriate in my opinion, since this particular hotfix is specific to Intel processors).

While this appears no major issue, since it still always shows on the updates (since the CAT file is not present anyway, nor is it listed as an included hotfix) I just thought I'd point it out for future implementations since it appears you realized the implementation was for specific archetecture, but forgot to remove the information from the INF file.

-----------------
I believe I may have not been as clear as possible in my previous post.

The particular CAT file is not present in the addon, the only references to it is in the RVMUpPck.inf file, which includes the registery entries, but the addon itself does not include the update.sys nor the KB936357.cat file.

The result is the fact that the update (WindowsXP-KB936357) shows up as a necessary update on Intel platforms, and if on an AMD platform, the updated never shows up.

Also of note, after running the update from MSUP, the update.sys file is in fact the new. The results are having differing update.sys files on Intel platforms than on AMD platforms.
Are you quite sure that you are looking at the right info?

i just took the 2.1.11 update pack from ryan and extracted it..

the above mentioned hot fix (KB936357) is mentioned in the RVMUpPck.inf and the update.sys file IS in the folder along with the cat file being present in the svcpack folder.. nor is there ANY mention of anything updating/overwriting/deprecating KB936357 in code's updatepack addon..

please check again (like i did) by upzipping the addonpack(s) and seeing the update.sys file and KB936357.cat file..

unless of course i am missing the point of your original post ;)

P.S. Code's pack is to be used WITH ryans pack as the one from code just updates ryans.. (in other words some files, the ones that DONT get updated, are ONLY in ryans pack)
understand?

Furthermore Update KB936357 NEVER showed up on my AMD processor system, and DOES show up on Intle systems even immediately after utilizing RVMUpdatePack2.1.11 alongside RUPUpdates-2.1.11.13-Addon.

Techno, in RUPUpdates-2.1.11.13\RVMUpPck.inf do a search for KB936357, you will see
in the [RVMUpdatePack] section:

KB936357.AddReg

While you still have RUPUpdates-2.1.11.13 extracted, search files for update.sys and/or kb936357.cat, you WON'T find them.

Also, while searching RVMUpdatePack2.1.11, I find NO existance of KB936357, I'm not sure where you got your version. The update.sys that is present in it is the 205 kB one.

NOTE: I am downloading RVMUpdatePack2.1.11 again, as I see the one I downloaded on 22 Jun 2007 is 265 KB larger than the one on the Torrent.

And yes, I am finding this information by extracting the packs and looking at them, I am quite certain I am looking at things right ;)

The only point I was making in my original post was pointing out there may perhaps be registry entries being made that need not be made.

BTW, I am finding this information by extracting the packs and looking at them, I am QUITE aware of the utilization of the packs ;)

(edited to correct date of download of RVMUpdatePack2.1.11)

DizzyDen, please check the MD5 of your Update Pack; something is most certainly wrong with the file you previously downloaded. It should include KB936357.CAT and the correct version of UPDATE.SYS (build 3124).

I would recommend HashTab unless you've found something that works better for you.

Filename: RVMUpdatePack2.1.11.7z

Oh, the hash on mine certainly did not match, nor did the size of it, the update.sys I have in the original I downloaded was 205 kB not the 365 kB one.

The differences in the initial download and the one I just downloaded:
original
had extra file KB885626.cat
was missing KB936357.cat
had the old UPDATE.SYS
date on entries.ini was 21 June 2007

JUST downloaded:
KB885626 REMOVED from svcpack folder and entries.ini (moved to obsolete)
HAS KB936357.CAT in svcpack folder and in entries.ini
has the newer UPDATE.SYS file
date on entries.ini 22 Jun 2007

The file you've just downloaded seems to be the correct one given the information you've posted, DizzyDen.

After further pondering, I believe I understand the multitude of the corresponding registry entries in code's pack to Ryan's, even though the files themselves are not present. I believe this may be for when used with a dummy update pack and driver repacking triggering, to ensure the entries are preserved in the registry. Or just that it was the easiest way of implementation, either way, please do not take my posts as negative in any way, I greatly appreciate both Ryan and Code's work. These circumstances were noticed due to the inspiration of their work causing me to delve further into the workings of them.

Thank you for ALL the hard work that goes on in these forums!

yup, in effect codes work (the update pack addon based on Ryans) HAS TO HAVE ryans pack either already integrated (using the dummy updatepack method to add codes) or alongside Ryans pack at the same time..

since the files are already in Ryans pack codes inf has to contain the same info (to treat the files right) as well as update the needed files and new ones that are only in his pack.. little confusing but there ya have it

glad you were able to get the correct file :)

have fun, and yell if ya get lost again

KB890830 is 'failing' about 2 times in 5 when testing ISOs on a VMware machine. It looks like the mrt stuff occasionally fails to unpack.

Two different modes of of failure:

a) Install fatally hangs at T9.

b) After first boot, MU calls out KB890830 as a needed update and (generally, but not always) successfully d/ls it and installs.

Does Mios reg code above fix this problem?

I believe that KB891716 give some hints as to which CSLIDs need to be updated for each new version of MRT

There is no way KB890830 could cause (a). And yes, until I release the next pack, (b) is a problem. I've been busy lately, so I haven't gotten around to it. MU detects the latest MRU based on a registry key left by the MRU. The version is expressed as a UUID, and all that's needed is to extract the latest UUID from the latest version and put that in the registry, and MU is happy; this is a fairly trivial task, and is entirely registry-based. mionica's post is correct and accurate.

Hi there. I integrated rvm pack 2.1.11 + latest addon (through 'addon pack' field) and after installing i can't recognize directx version = ). There're some files which have dates and time of integration update pack to cd. (look svreenshot). I haven't see latest directx in changelog of Code's addon. BUT installing of latest (august) directx redist changing no files in my dx.
