[Help] AddOn Maker: How to Choose and How to Make


Recommended Posts

Can somebody explain to me about these three addon:

  1. True Addon
  2. Svcpack Addon
  3. RunOnceEx addon

And, can we make addon with DX's Universal UpdatePack-Addon Creator [DXUPAC]

Last, what's different between switchless installer and true addon/ svcpack addon?

I'm really new to Addon Maker and Windows XP Installer Maker. I've ever use nLite and RVM Integrator but without addon inserted.

Any help and answer is appreciated.

True addons



SVCPACK or silent switch installers are the normal installer made to install silently, true addons are the program files extracted from the installer and copied to the hdd using INF or other methods

      Hello Wincert forum members,
      I have been a long time on/off user of various versions of Windows XP (modded,and stock OEM...as a PC OS hobbyist...),and have run into a problem i was hoping some Wincert IT types could help me to successfully accomplish....
      that being said,i am looking for a way to install a few 3rd party freeware (yes...freeware...not nagware,freemiumware,nor trialware)apps during the last 13 minutes or less of Windows XP GUI Mode...so would anyone one know how the syntax for nLite runonce (gui runonce??)options or another way to install my apps silently,and before windows xp setup launches XP desktop settings???
      I have recently "noticed",and "noted" that Windows XP has not been supported since year 2014...and that i no longer can find the MSFN unattended XP guide online(if anyone has a "link" to the MSFN XP unattended guide in PDF format...would like a "valid" link in your reply...; )
      Thanks in advance for any,all replies to this thread...

      Request to add a feature or tool within the Addon maker to install and test Win Toolkit AddOn. Currently their is a somewhat viable tool that was created by 'Dark Madness' which can be found in the Forum (cant seem to find it right now) but it comes in the form of UI or command line tool. Their does'nt seem to have been any developement on the tool in over a year. I've tried it on a few Addons with mixed results.
      Anyhow, not all that important, but it does come in handy for me when I want to test an Addon on a live systems. 
      Best Regards.

      I'd like to share the nLite SVCPACK add-ons I've made and maintained for some time now (over 2 years) over at MSFN.
      At the moment, I feel it's too much work for me to post (even copy/paste) individual sizes, MD5/SHA1 sums etc., but I will get around to it soon.
      The download links are:
      MediaFire: http://www.mediafire.com/Sp0iLeDBrAtUPLOAD
      Mirror: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/vcu9qfub8m8upib/wy09GvGkgi
      If you have any problems with any of the add-ons, please PM me.
      Note: all add-ons are for 32-bit (x86) Windows XP. Additionally, they have all been tested and working, most of them on a live install, and some in a virtual machine.
