  1. The quote from me was taken out of context. My reference to SP2 refers to the convenience roll-up kit, NOT an actual SP2 (is there such a thing?).
  2. I also desire this ability. The two KB's are prerequisites for the convenience roll-up kit (SP2). One of the prerequisites is currently moved to silent install, which means that SP2 can not be incorporated; instead the full list of patches must be used
  3. Unable to download; reply when attempted is "this site is temporarily unavailable" . I tried two days later with the same result.
  4. After much trial-and-error, I have solved the problem by using 8.3 notation for the parameter (/NOTEPAD=C:\Progra~2\Notepa~1\Notepa~1.exe instead of /notepad="C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe") . There is apparently a problem with double-quote symbols, at least in the silent installer parameters.
  5. M$ Essentials and .NET can both be run as Silent Installer steps; they both have command line options that do not require a reboot. You could also add them via an add-on.
  6. I have attached the RegEdit, which shows that there is an entry for Notepad Replacer.
  7. I am updating an existing image to update with new versions of Silent Installer programs. One of the "always Install" (Notepad Replacer) programs is not run, despite the fact that it appears in the Integrated list at the end of the run and is in the WinToolkit_apps directory. When I run AIO, I check the "Delete Silent Installers" in options. Is this correct? Suggestions? WTK version WTK Installer vrsion Run on Win7_x64 system AIO select Windows (7) Home Premium
  8. If autounattend.xml is present, the resulting install files can not be used for repair; the install process begins without presenting that option.
  9. Is there a way to set the sefault TimeZone with WTK? I am thinking putting something like the following in SilentInstaller (RunOnce) via a command file that has been converted to an SFX:: DISM /image:<MountName> /Set-TimeZone:<TimeZoneName> If my idea seems feasible, what MountName should be used? DISM documentation says that any value contained in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\TimeZone can be used in <TimeZoneName>.
  10. I get integrate failed when running AIO (WTK against a Win7SP1x64 ISO. See attached file, which has the messages generated as well as a cut of the INI file showing the entries causing the problem. The entries are patches for .NET 3.52 addon. Could this be a timing problem between addon's and RunOnce? Also note that the INI entries contain strange extended (debug?) lines. For what are they used? I see "always installed" also has a typo on the INI lines; I had manually changed the lines from prompted to always installed. WTK integrate error - Ultimate.txt
  11. RE: my already-entered requests for ability to: 1) run "always installed" items after "prompt installed" items and 2) make RunOnce restartable, i.e. - when machine is restarted, continue RunOnce processes from where it left off before the reboot.
  12. To get around these problems, I suggest you convert your batch/command file to an SFX (using something like 7zip SFX maker) and place the SFX in silent install.
  13. This method has two problems: 1. Not supported by WTK, so must manually change install.ini. 2. Reboot happens (at least on my system) before the windows customization completes. For this reason, I have created a SFX to be placed in RunOnce (to be run at any time during Silent Install steps). When run, it will place the command file in %tmp% and create a shortcut to it in Startmenu\Startup. After the windows customization completes and Startup is executed, the CMD fle deletes the shortcut and reboots the system. My SFX file is too big to upload, so I have uploaded a compressed version of the CMD file. reboot.7z
  14. Great job! Is there a way to add startmenu entries for these?
  15. How is S-I triggered? Can it be run as freestanding process? Is there an documentation on how it works? Trying to do some testing of it without having to run a full install.
  16. Allow Silent Installer process to resume where it left off after computer restart. This to allow a reboot step somewhere in the S-I process.
  17. If a WinToolkit_Apps directory already exists and is populated, the contents will be added to the AIO Silent Installer queue. Is this what is expected? As a work-around, delete the WinToolkit_Apps directory before running WTK/AIO. The additional programs do not show up in the session .ini file. WTK version
  18. AIO -> advanced -> Component removal has misspelling - "AppFrabic" should be "AppFabric". The help has it spelled correctly.
  19. Found another instance of no session log file generated. WTK -> AIO -> load manually-created session file which contains only updates downloaded via "WindowsHotfixDownloader" -> start No prompt for session file name and no session file generated. Details: Source - Win7 SP1 x86 download via WTK and then manually add multiple drivers. Integrating system - Win7 SP1 x86 with all but latest month's M$ updates. Here is link to the file: http://1drv.ms/1nPJjBA
  20. I have encountered one circumstance in which this occurs, which I have attempted to document here. WTK version (current WTK production version) acting on Win7SP1 Ultimate x86 ISO, which was downloaded using a previous version of WTK, and drivers manually-added before this run. WTK -> AIO run on computer loaded with Win7 SP1 x86 Ultimate. Numerous tweaks, etc,. added but no patches. Here is the link to the session file, which I had manually-created and loaded as presets to the AIO run: http://1drv.ms/1pw9XR8
  21. Some places in AIO (example: Basic -> Updates&Languages) the column width can be changed after "start". In other places (ex: Advanced -> silent installs + SFX) can not be changed after "Start".
