This tool allows you to create a localized UpdatePack or Addon, simply following these steps:
Place in a folder (source folder) the complete source already updated with the latest Service Pack and exactly all the hotfix installers and additional components listed in Onepiece's AIO UpdatePack topics (for XP and 2003 UpdatePacks) or the setup file and all the eventually needed hotfix installers (for Addons). See the example you can find in Onepiece's Skydrive for additional tips and other post in this topic for suggestion on updated hotfixes lists.
If you are creating UpdatePacks, you need add in source folder the following addons:
netfx 3.5 gdr addon
netfx 4.0 gdr addon
Starting from June release you must also add this addon in source folder
in place of install_flash_player_ax.exe file, because Flash installer doesn't support anymore 7-Zip.
Run DXUPAC.exe with the needed settings and the path of source folder.
When finished, you get your own localized addon/pack in 7z format, WU-compliant. The only thing missing will be your localized .net 3.5/4 language packs . You can add them too using Svcpack addons you can build with another easy tool available here . You need only to place in same directory dotnetfx35langpack_x86**.exe and dotNetFx40LP_Full_x86**.exe files you'll get from Microsoft and run.
Only for Unicode language XP users (like ARA, CHS, CHT, ELL, HEB, JPN, KOR, RUS): you should update manually the TimeZone Hotfix lines as DXUPAC is not able to to take out lines in local language so they are created in English. You need to extract latest TimeZone KB (you find them under [TZ_KBLAST.AddReg]) and update all lines from Argentina_Display=* to Yakutsk_Display in Strings section.
Universal Creator can also integrate Service Pack 3 inside XP MCE 2005. Follow these steps (some screen are from italian XP but they are easily comprehensible):
Thanks to Yumeyao for his suggestions.
Please be tolerant if something is not enough clearly stated. It's more easier to run than explain how it works
