Media Center 2715.3011 installer

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I've found a lot of add-on packages and tranform packages for MCE, but what I want is Media Center EXE or MSI installer which can be able to install mce on every Windows NT 5.1 (xp, server 2003, x64, xp betas).

 

 

My idea comes from this topic

 

needed files:

medctroc.inf file and mediactr.cab

 

command:

rundll32 syssetup,SetupInfObjectInstallAction Freestyle 128 medctroc.inf

 

but I don't want to search for mediactr.cab, I want to fully automated this process.

 

last action is tweak nt to convert edition to mce - I think this can be manage with registry setting.

 

Is not really metter how gonna be batch, exe, msi installer, I just want to be automated and if possible to be updated to last version 3011.

Put the INF in a \cmpnents\mediactr\i386 sub folder or edit the [sourceDisksNames] in medctroc.inf to remove that sub dir and just put all files in the same dir

 

How exactly to edit [sourceDisksNames] in medctroc.inf?

Should I delete whole row or something else?

 

Also for example I want to run install.bat from any local path (temp, cd, etc), and can you tell me how should be the structure in the folder

 

 

folder: MCEforNT51

file 1: mediactr.cab (is it possible to include October 2006 update ?)

 

file2: medctroc.inf

     row n:  [sourceDisksNames]

    row n+1:  ---  blank ---

 

file 3: install.bat

              rundll32 syssetup,SetupInfObjectInstallAction Freestyle 128 medctroc.inf
