WooHoo! I'm all over it! :)

Can you change to code in oemgen.exe from:

@echo off
Title=OEM info generator
mode con cols=59 lines=2

to

@echo off
Title=OEM info generator
mode con cols=59 lines=2
IF EXIST "%SystemRoot%\System32\oeminfo.ini" GOTO :EOF

That'll keep it from overwriting any custom OEM branding (Sony/HP/Dell) from my oemscan addon or other OEM builds.

Also with the batch addon, the %cdsource%\ie8\* folder and contents are left behind after integration. Not a problem though to delete afterwards.

Might just have been a glitch. I'll try again with different source.

That's realy great but I have one question. Will that work completely after applying a mui pack? Will all dialog boxes been transalated? In other words is it stringable like original dialog boxes?

When you update the OEM info generator, change the version info to read 1.4.7.

@echo off

Title=OEM info generator

mode con cols=59 lines=2

IF EXIST "%SystemRoot%\System32\oeminfo.ini" GOTO :EOF

copy /v /y oemlogo.bmp %windir%\system32\oemlogo.bmp >nul

echo Please wait while system information is being generated...

setlocal ENABLEEXTENSIONS ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION

set OEMFILE=%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\oeminfo.ini

set REGMODE=1

set TAGFILE=WIN51

set MANUFACTURER=XP

Does this mean that you will make it stringable like the originals?

If the original files aren't "stringable", then it's not likely that these resources will be made like that. It would require that the MUI files be present and it's not the function of either the GUI or the batch versions to add those files.

I strongly suspect that the MUI pack also installs the "stringable" system files, although I have no personal experience with this and cannot test without a link to the MUI pack. Neither the GUI or the batch version can detect this situation and would replace the original resources that the files contain with XPtsp'ed English resources, thus making it non-"stringable". It is the intention to develop a method to "translate" the resources into language-specific resource files based on the strings in the original file, however, it has yet to be started on and may never see the light of day....

I can understand that. If you ever make it I think that would be great to add a theme based on windows 7 ultimate.

I tried XPtsp Batch sometime ago integrated, I installed the mui pack after installation and the new dialogs where greek nothing has been transalated. The dialogs where just like before but in english (not in greek that contains my mui pack). I think that this will help you if you ever make it. I do not have the link now for the mui pack but I'll find that soon .

Windows XP would be still light and stable version of windows for many years and I think many users will keep them. I'ts worth making it multilanguage if you agree too.

I do agree with you on this point, a multilanguage version will be great.

I also believe that it won't be so difficult. I think that this only needs to be fixed is the part that makes the resourses stringable. In an unattended installation of english xp and preferred language's mui then it will transelated automatically and it would be easier to transalate in different languages by changing the strigable part with the default.

One link for greek mui:

Qwesta: I quite agree that support for multilanguage would be great.

stsaerox: Since you seem to know so much about this particular topic, please demonstrate how to do so. If the method you show me is reproducable via AutoIt, it will be incorporated into the GUI.

the problem here is not in what language the text is, its the resource ID code it self.im still not getting what you mean by "stringable".And yes i know what a string table is.But again the problem on why xptsp isint available in alot more languages is the res files' ID.
