  1. After playing around with DISM, i found that ALL the updates are actually not integrated, and they ALL give the following error: 0x80070005 An error occurred applying the Unattend.xml file from the .msu package Any ideas? Cheers,
  2. HI There, i wanted to request a function to disable the verification that windows makes when one is installing the unnatended setups, since it requires manual "Ok" prompts if one installs a Windows 7 Image from a Pendrive, as its flagged by windows as an unsecure installation file source. (one way could be that after windows installs, the W7T copies the unnanteded files and setups locally, and runs them from there, this of course could be a "tick" option added on the W7T Settings). Cheers,
  3. Hi There, I'm having a problem with version 130-98RC, which by every tested way (3 diferent corporate ISOS, 2 different updates sources, 6 tries) i cant find a way to make integrated updates work. As far as the tool tells me, the updates are integrated though, wehn checking WU if it worked, it finds that the installation is lacking the same updates I integrated (All), If i open the image with the WAIK, i can see the updates themselves, but before, with old versions, i didnt had any problems, Any ideas on why does it do this? (to add a little info, i did try on 3 different physical machines, 2 virtual, and 3 different installation mediums, including a USB Pen, a double layer disk and Deployment services). Thanks!
  4. nice Oh, btw, if you need help with testing X functionality, im all day blowing up different built images.
  5. Hey, now i understand that ssomething because of windows security, maybe a "tick" box in the options just for those who "understand" the risk of diabling such thing, or maybe disabling it when the runonce start, and re-enabling it when it finishes.
  6. HI there, i dunno if someone has run across this problem, but i know it happens when you try to install applications from a USB Windows 7 Install Pendrive. everytime the silent installer app tries to launch an exe, even with the /qn switch if applicable, it gives you on applications that are not from microsoft, the "open File Security warning", asking the common "are you sure you want to install/open this file". has anybody found a solution for this? Cheers. Edit: I Also found out that most drivers also didnt install by using a USB Pendrive. and the drivers are signed and compatible.
  7. Hey, i think i've seen it before running on DISM once, or inside System Center Configuration manager, there's a way for a program that uses DISM, or maybe it needs to be programmed to detect, when youre adding a driver different from the architecture of the source.wim. I'll explain further in an example: A.- If you try to add a x64 driver to an x86 source.wim, it will throw you an error, and vice versa. B.- If the driver is multi-architecture, let the user know, it runs on both. is this possible for WT7 ? Cheers,
  8. Hey, a quickie question, did you remove the "name" field for adding silent installers applications for some reason in particular? Im still pushing W7T to find bugs around Keep up the good work man! PS: your new laptop that you order looks badass! Cheers
  9. Hey Sorry, i didnt answer your posts sooner, was on a bussiness trip, Nice! its quite nice how it changed man!
  10. /old/ Hey there, found a bug (or misuse/error?), when you try to open the HKLM\System hive of the wim image, it actually opens the local computer registry! /old/ Edit: Nevermind me, i found it, its on HKLM\\WIM_Software\\W7T (Still it actually opens the local registry). Also, weird stuff, the x86 ISO has the Wow6432Node. Cheers
  11. Hey Lego, just a quick question, where does W7T saves the list of applications going to be installed? in the WIM file, or directly on a folder in the root? Im asking because for example, i want to change an Application name that i added as a silent installer, but to do that i have to recreate everything. got any ideas? Thanks!
  12. Nice!. Yes yes, Ii think itll be a good idea, to have everything "Add" related into the AIO, maybe change the name to "Applications" for example Anything you need im at your disposal, Cheers!
  13. Hi, i thought it would be a good idea to have a "Change History" management inside W7T, for example, if one finishes up an AIO image, and the one closes W7T, one can reopen it, and list everything thats already there (modified by W7T), so that later new things can be modified, deleted or added. (Gets a little frustrating when one's silent test application crashes the instalation because of bad switches, and one has to redo the image =P). The history could include: A.- AIO. B.- Unnatended files. C.- Silent Applications. - In All-In-One Tool D.- Registry modifications. - NO Too Complicated E.- etc. Also it'll be nice to have a "profile manager" section. by having the mentioned history, one could have several profiles, like for example: Profile 1: Windows 7 Home With Office 2007. Profile 2: Winodws 7 Enteprise with office 2010 and Adobe Reader. Profile N: N operating system, with N applications, with N modifications. Lego: Last_Session.ini is created in AIO Tool. Cheers!
  14. Done, it should have uploaded a log. Cheers
  15. Hey Lego, thanks! thatll be much useful! Cheers!
  16. I run into a little problem, If you hover the mouse over the "silent installers", it says "...Once selected they will install automatically", this means selecting it on W7T. or selecting them after installation like the screen im attaching? Should it be automatic? without user interaction? (or maybe this is by design). Cheers
  17. Good luck at the university! out of curiosity, which career are you starting? Are you reading C# Essentials from Prentice Hall? <- I recommend this one if you have programming in the university courses . Have a nice day! Cheers
  18. Yep, i can confirm that the Updater worked in Subversion 14, and did direct me to version 15. PS: if you need help translating it to Spanish (Argentina), i would be glad to help out .
  19. Hi there Legolash2o, Edit3: Just to be clear, i replaced the code originally put on this post by this one, since this one is a tested example. This is what this code does: A.- Sets all Locales to US. B.- Defines product key. C.- Only allows administrator with its password. D.- No touch on setup is required. E.- Partitions the disk in 2, one with 100mb for system partition, and the rest of the disk for the OS, with the letter C:. F.- Sets the timezone to Argentina Standar Time. G.- Skips Wireless configuration. H.- Skips user interaction. I.- Sets network location to "Work". J.- sets security to "recommended". K.- Installs Windows 7 ENTERPRISE. (Note: if the key is a MAK one, be warned that the location and variable changes, check the Productkey variable on the link below). Reference for values and variables: Link to reference Note: The password value was originally a hex code, which by validating and saving the xml on WSIM, it converts it from plain to hex. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings pass="windowsPE"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core-WinPE" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="NonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <SetupUILanguage> <UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage> </SetupUILanguage> <InputLocale>0409:00000409</InputLocale> <UserLocale>en-US</UserLocale> <UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage> <SystemLocale>en-US</SystemLocale> </component> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="NonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <UserData> <Organization>MyOrganization</Organization> <FullName>MyOrganization</FullName> <ProductKey> <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI> </ProductKey> <AcceptEula>true</AcceptEula> </UserData> <DiskConfiguration> <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI> <Disk wcm:action="add"> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <WillWipeDisk>true</WillWipeDisk> <CreatePartitions> <CreatePartition> <Order>1</Order> <Type>Primary</Type> <Size>100</Size> </CreatePartition> <CreatePartition> <Order>2</Order> <Type>Primary</Type> <Extend>true</Extend> </CreatePartition> </CreatePartitions> <ModifyPartitions> <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add"> <Active>true</Active> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Label>system</Label> <Order>1</Order> <PartitionID>1</PartitionID> </ModifyPartition> <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add"> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Label>Main</Label> <Letter>C</Letter> <Order>2</Order> <PartitionID>2</PartitionID> </ModifyPartition> </ModifyPartitions> </Disk> </DiskConfiguration> <ImageInstall> <OSImage> <InstallFrom> <MetaData wcm:action="add"> <Key>/IMAGE/NAME</Key> <Value>Windows 7 ENTERPRISE</Value> </MetaData> </InstallFrom> <InstallTo> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <PartitionID>2</PartitionID> </InstallTo> <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI> </OSImage> </ImageInstall> </component> </settings> <settings pass="oobeSystem"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="NonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <AutoLogon> <Password> <Value>XXXX</Value> <PlainText>false</PlainText> </Password> <Enabled>true</Enabled> <LogonCount>1</LogonCount> <Username>Administrator</Username> </AutoLogon> <OOBE> <HideEULAPage>true</HideEULAPage> <SkipMachineOOBE>true</SkipMachineOOBE> <SkipUserOOBE>true</SkipUserOOBE> <NetworkLocation>Work</NetworkLocation> <ProtectYourPC>1</ProtectYourPC> <HideWirelessSetupInOOBE>true</HideWirelessSetupInOOBE> </OOBE> <ProductKey>XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX</ProductKey> <TimeZone>Argentina Standard Time</TimeZone> <UserAccounts> <AdministratorPassword> <Value>XXXX</Value> <PlainText>false</PlainText> </AdministratorPassword> </UserAccounts> </component> </settings> <settings pass="specialize"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="NonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <ComputerName>CHANGEME</ComputerName> </component> </settings> <cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim:c:/imagedev/install.wim#Windows 7 ENTERPRISE" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" /> </unattend> Thanks for your time!

  20. HI There, I wanted to request the following, since it'll be a good idea for the general integrators: Req: Add the Following functionality to the Unattended Creator: A.- Ability to Autologon. B.- Ability to enable only the administrator and its password. C.- Ability to select the workgroup. D.- Ability to auto-join a domain. E.- Ability to NOT activate the serial, even if it has been inputed. F.- Ability to Auto-Partition the Hard Drive. G.- Ability to Auto-Select Language, Locale, Keyobard Locale, and Time Zone. H.- Ability to create additional users, and select if they're local administrators. Req: Add the following functionality to W7T: A.- Ability to default to all users the imported wallpaper in the AIO section (and select if its "fit", "centered", etc). B.- Ability to Modify the EULA. (if im right, there was a section where you could import an RTF) (No, might be illegal?) C.- Let the AIO Programs integrator to check the .exe/.msi command-line parameters, and pop them up to the user. (for example when you run example.exe /?) D.- New column on the AIO Drivers section, saying if its a x32, x64 driver or both. E.- Ability to sort by column in the AIO section. This is mostly to reduce user interaction to zero (put the disc in, and let it do it all). -------------------------------- - User language + input locale <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings pass="windowsPE"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core-WinPE" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="NonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <SetupUILanguage> <UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage> </SetupUILanguage> <InputLocale>0409:00000409</InputLocale> <UserLocale>nl-NL</UserLocale> <UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage> <SystemLocale>en-US</SystemLocale> </component>
  21. Hey Legolash2o, i've been following you since a long time, firstly let me say a very BIG THANKS for creating a tool, that us IT administrators make our lifes easier, i wanted to ask you a little something, when at the AIO integrator you try to integrate the unattended file created previously in the creator, it tells you "you must select at least 1 task to complete". I only want to integrate the unattended file, i dont know if this was designed to be like this (maybe you require one variable of the other tabs to start the process). Also, i read it somewhere on another post where a user requested the unattened file creator, that it had the autologon feature, but when the creator creates the unattend, it does not add the following needed lines: <AutoLogon> <Password> <Value>mypassword</Value> <PlainText>true</PlainText> </Password> <Username>Administrator</Username> <LogonCount>2</LogonCount> <Enabled>true</Enabled> <Domain>WORKGROUP</Domain> </AutoLogon> Correct me if im wrong, but I think by what i remember from my old days with Vista/XP, that this part of the code is required if you use the following code: <SkipUserOOBE>true</SkipUserOOBE> Also, the Unattended creator does not have an "open" button if you like to edit an already created file, or one already integrated, is this by design? Sorry for all the questions =P, Thanks for your time an dedication! Cheers PS: sorry if my english is not perfect, also i can help you if you need some help with the unattended code .
