    Welcome everyone :tired:

    This Days it is not so difficult to install windows form scratch, However it is can be time consuming becuase after installing windows , and one of the process that can take along time to complete is the downlaoad and insatlling of runtime Package and the third party
    such as .NET Framework , Java plugin , Flash palyer , silverlight , DirectX , adobe air , and etc.
    Although this runtime  consider to be optional software , but they are becoming a necssity today due the larg number of software that
    requires to run Properly ,In Our ' AiO Runtime Pack ' that contains all this Kind of runtime , without need to download each runtime or software separately , all what you need to do is download the ' AiO Runtime Pack ' , and run the " Package_xxx.exe" file that will start the Installtion Process , A really nice Feature on ' Aio Runtime Pack ' is ability to automatically choose the right components that are compatible with the system architecture , and the ' Aio Runtime Pack ' is offline installer which mean all the runtime are already included in the setup file without an internet connection required also offline Package will get outdated after sometimes due the constant update of the runtime wich is updated continuously so make sure you have the latest version of the package .

    Thanks guys this is truly an odd issue because it seems to make no logical sense... to clarify: I definitely have been able to download every other .exe from mediafire and all other hosting services with matching MD5's , I have been updating all my exe tools like KUC, WHD, SFX makers including your new Java tool Mooms with no issues at all. I ran Malwarebytes and a few other tools that all came up clean. I must have tried at least 20+ times and could never get a correct MD5
     
    I just ran the latest KUC against my system and updated everything, updated to the latest Flash and Shockwave, ran Rick's latest VBCFJRedist_AIO_x86_x64, cleaned my temp folders and of course rebooted quite a few times and just tried the download 2x with SUCCESS!!!
     
    I can't begin to guess at which item "potentially" fixed this or what was the actual "cause & effect" here to resolve the issue.

    compstuff reacted to niTe_RiDeR_Pr0 in Repack installer request?   
    It's easy. let me tell you what I did:
     
    I first downloaded the exe. Ran it. Then I found that it extracts the msi to the following folder: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\jre1.8.0_20.
    Then I extracted the msi using MsiX extraction method in UniExtractor. In the extracted files, there is a file named: Binary.installerexe. Rename the file to Binaryinstaller.exe. Now extract files from the exe using 7-zip. Here it is! Now here are the files. Now only you have to do is to repack them.
    NOTE==> The program files are only the 2 folders 'bin' and 'lib'. The other files like COPYRIGHT, LICENSE, README, release, etc are useless.
     
    I also found out that the installer is an InstallShield Wizard. 
    So, to repack it, you can either import the main msi(which extracts to the AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\jre1.8.0_20 folder) in Advanced Installer and then add the 7-zip extracted files(as Advanced Installer doesnt automatically detect the program files)    OR      Directly edit/import the msi using InstallShield.

    I'm not the best person to answer this but I can get you started in the right direction. Technically I will never fully comprehend how the guys are such experts at differentiating the superseded updates etc but the general forum about all of this is found here: http://forums.mydigi...tfix-repository
    McRip http://hotfix.cesidian.info/ and Komm http://windows-update-checker.com/ both maintain the "motherload" of updates along with amazing tools for their use. Komm's KUC is one of my main tools for developing and maintaining my integration's. Burfadel http://burf.cesidian.info/ also has toools and items that I use as well.
    If you follow the forum and use their updates and tools you should "learn" what you need but I won't kid you... personally I find this a daunting task and much of that is due to MS not releasing a service pack for so long which means using about 400 updates to maintain an image.
    EDIT: For got to mention that WinToolKit has the function to download the updates from McRip's repo and that gives you about 90% of what you need in one shot

    Step 2 SFX/Silent Installers
     
    If you have been following this then some steps will now become repetitive which is good because that's whats makes some of this rather straight forward to me. Hopefully you will also be able to follow my folder logic so I can just go directly to the folders we will use.
     
    This step may be a little more complicated for me to explain but I will try my best and I think I will start with my reasons for doing it in this manner. I really prefer to separate and control all the items that I add as silent installers etc and RunOnceEx item and run them in a single process. I also try to create a method that allows me to make easy updates to files when they become available and then just drop a file in place, re-run this step (which takes about 10 minutes) and then my image is up to date. Other supportive scenarios would be how easy this step is to maintain for the next full integration by reusing my .ini file because I have used generic names for the files or the fact that most files don't change at all. Lastly I can use generic calls to batch files or scripts to install files from my $OEM$ folder which works great when I want something for one client versus another or to create a "admin" image with lots of different tools for myself. If this is not clear don't worry, I have a lot more explaining to do.
     
    NOTE: I can't explain every single item that is added, it would take too long and is really not the scope of this, but each item will be fully referenced so you can research them yourself
     
    Lets start with the easy stuff:
     
    Setting up the new target image for this step I am working in my _Slipstream\_7Builds\ folder. I copy the completed Step 1 Integration to the Step-2-SFX folder. We will copy my $OEM$ folder and my Autounattend.xml later so just keep that in mind. (Refer to previous pics)
     
    Now lets take a look at the !Slipstream\_7Tools\_Step-2 folder since this and the $OEM$ are the brains of all of this:

     
    OK now I am sure this may look like soo much to maintain but I swear other than a few files, I basically set all this up once and pretty much never changed it and I have been using this forever... and remember if I never really change the files or file names then the .ini can be reused :-)
     
    So lets look at items 00 to 07, these are items that can't be installed in Step 1 so they get installed to an online image. I obtained all of these from McRip and I just manage them this particular way. I can reuse the same .ini content for this:
    NOTE: reading the .ini file will show what actual files are in what folders... I literally did these when I first started so I need to help myself understand what things were for

    I personally always use Ricktendo's .net installers and this is a great example of and easy to maintain folder item. Rick releases a new version, I copy it to the folder, rename it and I'm good to go with no other changes to anything.

    NOTES:
    Rick's installer has the following switches I choose and I just the /ai
     
    /y - Passive mode, shows progress bar advancing but requires no user interaction. *Full* package is installed./ai - Quiet mode, no user input required or output shown. *Full* package is installed./ain - Quiet mode, no user input required or output shown. *Full* package is installed and 'ngen executequeueditems' is also run./h | /? - Display this help. Mr_SmartePants has an excellent method of creating your own .net installer I just choose to use Rick'sDotNet Installer Custom.txt *************************TO BE CONTINUED HEADING OFF TO WORK**********************************
  25. Like
    compstuff got a reaction from Stimpy in My Personal Image Integration Process   
    Step 1 Integration
     
    The first thing I do is copy the vanilla source files from "W7T_7SP1x64ent_TechNet-base" to my target directory "W7T_7SP1x64ent_TechNet-Step-1-Updates". I then open WinToolKit, and if I haven't already done it I will go to the Update Catalog, select my McRip choice and makes sure I have the latest updates. Actually I spend quite a bit of time checking and reviewing updates and I use http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/19461-Windows-Hotfix-repository and the members there to provide the support for this part.
     
    Once that part is done to my satisfaction I open the AIO Integration option and select my "W7T_7SP1x64ent_TechNet-Step-1-Updates" target. In this case I will skip the preset and start from scratch to create a new .ini I select the updates tab and then follow the same specific procedure every time I do Step 1.
    NOTE: this months update sequence changed slightly due to Windows Update showing some of the IE10 pre-req's so I added them at step 2 below in this phase, every other step I have been repeating exactly for about a year and more integration's than I can even remember
     
    1) Select Add Updates & Subfolders, select IE9 folder found in the Additional folder and WinToolKIt will properly add them all
    2) Select Add Updates, select KB2786081, KB2726535, KB2729094 found in Additional IE10ReleasePreview and WinToolKIt will properly add them all
    3) Select Add Updates, highlight and select every .msu in the _Updates "McRip Windows 7 x64" folder
    *** At this point I select the GREEN folders and items that I want to add to my image and this will vary based on your personal preference and need. RDP8.0 has one item I add in Step 1 ***
    4) Select Add Updates & Subfolders, continue to select each GREEN folder (i just do them in sequence) and WinToolKit will properly add them all. When you reach the BROWN "RemoteDesktopProtocol8.0" use Add Updates and only add KB2574819, then finish off the rest of the GREEN folders.
     
    I have now added all my updates that apply to my STEP-1.  Now at this point I actually don't run it yet because I just created a new .ini and I want to compare it to an old one and make sure it looks right and that I haven't forgotten anything. As much as this seem overly anal, each integration takes more than 2 hrs so the few minutes I take to check my work is well worth it and I have often found something I left out or wanted to change. So what I do is select Presets-Save All and then name the ini something like "STEP-1-Updates-02-09-13"
     
    So here is an example of what we have after I saved the latest Step-1 Preset and I reloaded an image and what to use it:

     
    When I load that Preset it will look like this:

     
    Here is my actual STEP-1-Updates-02-09-13.ini
     
    STEP-1-Updates-02-09-13.ini
     
    Additional Notes:
     
    I actually save lots of .ini files and I will even edit ini files sometime during the month as new updates get release. What I tend to do is wait until a week after the major release date (2nd Tuesday of the month) because that's about the time frame that McRips scanners finish and he and the others at http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/19461-Windows-Hotfix-repository have pretty much stabilized the releases then I create my new image. But we all know that additional files get release so sometime I just edit the .ini and add them that way. What that gives me is a new and updated .ini without having to really do much at all and if I want to use it as a preset for a new image I am good to go.
     
    Also If I have already completed my images and new updates come out I just open that target, add the additional hotfixes to my already integrated image and the image will be up to date. I really don't due that often but it definitely works. I have found it just as easy to use the new preset, start a new integration, go to dinner, have some wine and come back and its done, then I just run the additional steps and since they run much faster it's not a big deal... just my preference.
