Welp, my Google found nothing so if you want help, you may need to provide more info and/or screenshot. It's ok, you can take it with your phone, as long as the error message and that pink thing are visible.

Hi guys. I run win7 Ultimate, x64, SP1, fully uppdated with WTK (updates dl direct from MS), checked by WU.

 

I saw "the pink box counting down from 10 to 1 and 0" again when I reinstalled a updated win7 including the april updates. It seems to be part of a process that takes ownership of the system for installing reasons.

 

This was a 100% clean source ONLY modified with WTK, on a clean system with firewall an antivirus. So if this is something bad - I didn´t add it.

 

BUT I think and I hope this is a part of the WTK install process.

 

Thanx i advance!

I think its because Liam changed back to RunOnce. I'm looking for a thread and give you feedback in a few moments.

 

 

Ok, look here post #48 :

 

http://www.wincert.net/forum/topic/12111-solved-1437x-silent-installer-runonce-does-not-work/page-3

 

 

 

Here i saw what i think the whole time about RunOnce : Its not reliable !

 

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314866/EN-US

 

"Furthermore, applications should use the RunOnce keys only for transient conditions (such as to complete application setup); an application must not continually re-create entries under RunOnce.

Doing so will interfere with Windows Setup."

 

In my opinion RunOnceEx is the only way.

 

 

 

Since Liam changed back to RunOnce I delete this registry key with WIM Registry Editor : 

 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce]
"!1WinToolkit"="WinToolkitRunOnce.exe"
 
and then i let Setupcomplete.cmd write this registry-key :
 
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\050 /V 1 /D "%WINDIR%\System32\WinToolkitRunOnce.exe" /f
 
 
ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS with this solution and NO pink popup !!
 
 
 
@Liam
Please change to RunOnceEx and most of the problems will be past

Had a same result with my W7 image testing, but after that "pink box" Virtualbox just crashes... :g:

 

Currently revising, integrated updates, culprit probably lies in there...as the very same WinToolkit Installer version works fine with W8.1 images.

And we had issues caused by updates, that shouldnt be integrated before, so I can pretty much bet on it... ;)

Same result to.. (WinToolkit 1.4.38.6)

 

Under system32 directory, wintoolkit copied this file

WinToolkitRunOnce.exe
WinToolkitRunOnce.exe.config

 

and add this registry keys

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce]
"!1WinToolkit"="WinToolkitRunOnce.exe"

 

and under dvd sources directory file "install.ini"

 

I do not have anything in wintoolkit runonce section. Why added this?

Its added, so you could actually add Installers, without redoing the whole image ;)

 

AFAIK WTK Installer accepst two ways for installing apps...registry method, which means processing the image and "INI method", which requires just copying files and editing that INI.

Well actually it should... :g:

 

Anyway talking about that "pink" issue, add these as silent installers, dont integrate those into image:

 

KB2895729KB2883457KB2533552KB2603229KB2819745KB0976002KB2592687KB2857650KB2830477KB2923545KB947821-v32

 

Also, keep the order, as some of them are prerequisites to others ;)

Maybe Lego can do some adjustments to WInToolkit AIO tool aswell.
