[SOLVED] Inject drivers with .exe extension or own setup file in unattended setup

Q: [SOLVED] Inject drivers with .exe extension or own setup file in unattended setup

Hi everybody.
I got dell latitude d800 laptop with dead display and without os (supposed to be XP, sticker is intact).
Hunting for affordable good shape lcd panel will take a while so I made unattended cd with nlite and installed XP but external monitor didn't fire up
I checked the installation with live CD and it looks like complete install so I got an idea that the install is lacking dell drivers particularly video driver (nvidia fx 5200 go card).
Even more: it's possibly lacking any video driver 'cause native display was disconnected.
So I have to somehow inject video driver and force setup to install it. Then XP must fire up external monitor and then I can update all the drivers.
I read about winnt.sif and $OEM$/Drivers directory but that all about "naked" drivers like .sys .cat .inf ... but the drivers I got from dell have also .dll .exe and other files but nvidia driver even has its own setup.exe.
How to make XP setup to install such drivers during unattended setup?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

On my XP SP3 computer I have partitioned the first physical hard drive into three partitions. C: contains the operative system, D: the swap file, and E: the Documents and Settings folders. These are my reasons:

I have convinced myself that the C:-partition don't get so fragmented when the swap-file doesnt write all over it, and putting the sf as only file on the D:partition let it live its own life without interfering with any other files. I have been using this feature for several years and on several computers without problem.

When I had to re-install XP due to malfunctions I decided to use the unattended setup method, and used this command: "[GuiUnattended] ProfilesDir=E:\ ". Now my computer crashes frequently with the blue-screen-of-death. I get several different error messages, among them DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, and STOP: 0x000000BE in fltmgr.sys.

Keeping the D&S files away from the C:-partition seem to be a very good idea. If the system crashes all information is still kept on another drive without frequent backup.

Before I reinstall XP with the D&S files on the C:-partition I wish to ask if anyone knows if it is common that a computer crashes if the D&S are not situated on the same partition as the OS? On the other hand, if that should be no problem, my problems must originate from the D&S I have reinstalled. How do I then solve my problems?

And I am using the latest N... Read more

Hi Guys & Gals,

I've been trying to get my Home XP(SP2) desktop talking to my XP(SP2) Laptop, using tips gleemed from the threads in this forum.

My desktop does not require a sign-on.
My laptop is from work and requires sign-on to the work Domain.
I have put my Desktop into a workgroup of the same name as the laptop domain.
I have enabled file & print sharing, and added the laptop into my trusted Norton security zone on the Desktop.
I have shared folders on both machines.

I can see the Workgroup from my Laptop but not the desktop within it.
I can see the Domain from my Desktop but it times out if I try to drill further.
I cannot see my shared printer (connected to the desktop) from the laptop.
I can map from my laptop to desktop (shared folder), but not vice versa.

The only thing I haven't tried is to run the Network setup wizard on either the desktop or laptop.

Here's my question: if I run that wizard on my laptop, will it destroy my work network settings?

OR any other ideas what I should try to get each machine to see each other?

Thanks
Hew

I'm trying to install windows xp, after formatting, it goes thru the process of copying the xp files and automatically reboots. Now after rebooting, instead of this installation to continue, it just goes back to the same setup process again i.e right from the beginning again of wanting to format and repeating the same process again. It does not continue with the installation as it normally does. Xp disk is good. no problem with it.
One thing strange I noted is when booting with the XP disk in, it automatically goes thru with the XP setup without asking 'Click any key to boot from CD-Rom'
Any ideas to solve this? Thank you all in advance

I looked online for troubleshooting solutions, and I have so far found two options:

-Re-download because the error could be the result of a failed download that wasn't identified when the file was downloaded.

-Find and delete old files that could be stopping the file from being reaad properly.

I have several Asus Eee netbooks that I'm getting set up to use at my school. I had some parent volunteers helping me get them ready to deploy, and one of the netbooks was plugged in to initially power it up, but then hard-shut-down before Windows could run through its initial setup.

Now when I boot up the netbook, and it attempts to go through the initial windows setup "Setup is starting services", and then throws an error message:
The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation.I restart, and the cycle continues. This happens whether I try to boot normally or in safe mode.

I've got no CD-drive attached to it, so I'm not sure what I can do to break this error cycle. Any suggestions/tools/ideas?

Not sure how you deployed them, but if Startup Repair doesn't help when run from System Recovery Options then I would redeploy the image or run Factory Recovery from its partition after backing up the disks.

If you don't have one and they are same hardware, simply backup one's image using Win7 backup imaging or free Macrium - Image your system then boot System Recovery options to Recover Using an Image from its external storage location which you have connected.

If they are not same exact hardware or Image hangs at startup, SysPrep the original before deploying to remove all drivers, activation, SID and HID's.

Is there any info recorded anywhere in Windows, that tells me the name of a setup file
that (ideally including it's path)?

An executable can usually (always?)
be opened with 7-zip, often (like itunes) revealing the executable internally to contain a collection of .msi's. Maybe info about the execution of one of these is logged somewhere, in which case (with a bit more effort) I think the 'origin' (setup.exe) could
be inferred...

I read that the journal records every file that's opened!!! is this human-readable?

Thinking aloud. I have about 7 widi setup executables I obtained whilst trying to setup
intel widi, similar scenario with several other applications installed on various VHDs. I'd like to purge my downloads>>setups folder, but retain installation-media for important applications (just in case).

So much info is installed during installation (ie setup/msi stuff as well as appdata of
course), surely something this simple must be possible somehow, somewhere! somebody?

I mistakenly launched XP Setup and want to know how to stop it from progressing further. I have another XP installed on another virtual disk. Rebooting from there allowed me delete the Setup files. Or so I thought ! The main XP installation however continues to try to launch Setup. Just about whatever I do, it ends in tears. My question is … how do I stop XP on this disk from thinking it has to launch Setup? I don’t want to reinstall XP, as that will involve a huge amount of work to recreate my environment.

I am able to choose my operating system when I press F8

If I launch the corrupt system in “safe mode” or “domain controllers”, everything appears to progress normally until the very end… when the XP black desktop appears (and just before the icons appear). At that point I get the error message
“Windows XP cannot run under safe mode” and I am asked to click OK to consult a log file. The screen however is actually frozen at that point, so I have to unplug the machine.

Otherwise if I launch in debugging mode or “Last known good configuration”m I get a message saying “Setup will restart now” and then “ Setup is being restarted…” while the usual XP installation logos start to appear e.g. “An exciting new look etc…”. Shortly afterwards I get
“An error that has been encountered that prevents setup from continuing ”,
Again the screen freezes so I need to unplug the machine.

So I decided to experiment with Raid 0 on my i7 system to see if it had any impact on video encoding performance using two 500Gb Green Caviar WD HDD's. Specifically, I encoded a 700Mb AVI to DVD. Unfortunately, it took almost 3 times longer over a single HDD setup.

Prior to this, I installed Vista Ultimate (non-Raid mode) on 5 different 500Gb HDD's and a Velociraptor and ran the same test above. Keep in mind that the video file and the software were always on the Main Drive and there were no jumpers on any of them.

Here's A summary:

WD 500Gb Green Caviar 16mb Cache = 13 mins
WD 500Gb Green Caviar 16mb Cache = 36 mins
WD 500Gb Green Caviar 16mb Cache = 13.5 mins
WD VelociRaptor 150Gb 16mb Cache = 12.5 mins
Seagate Barracuda 500Gb 16mb Cache = 39 mins
Seagate Barracuda 500Gb 32mb Cache = 37 mins
Raid0 WD 2 x 500Gb Green Caviar = 34 mins

So is this AAM related causing such dramatic variations?

I have just finished moving my OS from a 3TB hard drive to an SSD. I now have 2 matching drives that I would like to set up as a RAID array. A couple of questions:

1. Do I need to backup the data that will be on the RAID before setting it up and then move it back once it has been setup?

2. Do I format them before I go into the RAID setup utility or does that utility do it for me?

3. Will the RAID just appear as a single drive letter on my system?

4. Evidently I have the choice between RAID0 (for performance) and RAID1 (for redundancy). I hhave an extensive back up scheme in place so is there any reason not to use RAID0?

I know that I enable the RAID in the BIOS and then there is a place in the boot sequence to get into the RAID setup.

In attached readme file for the Intel Rapid Storage Technology, see section 5.1.1, it is said that preloading is required for systems configured for AHCI and RAID.

Can't find Diamond. I am giving this video card to a friend, but I have no install software for it. I used to have the latest drivers for it(deleted them since I replaced the card). I seem to remember the drivers I downloded having a Setup.exe file with them, but I can't find them now. Can anyone help?

I run into a strange problem. Firstly:
Radeon HD 5830
Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Today I decided to update my AMD Catalyst and drivers from 14.12 to 15.7.1.

I did the usual thing, uninstalling all AMD stuff via the catalyst install manager at the Control Panel, then restarted my computer. I ran the new 15.7.1 catalyst installer exe. It launched into the language selection screen as normal. However, after I click "Next" I briefly see the "Express" or "Custom" install option window before the setup closes abruptly. There is no error message or anything else to indicate what happened. I've tried running it several times to the same effect.

I still had the old 14.12 catalyst setup, so I tried running that. However, it does the exact same thing of closing itself after the language selection screen. I even tried running AMD's autodetectutility.exe but that program immediately closes after launching with a brief window message about how my resolution is lower than the recommended for installing AMD graphics, despite my current resolution being 1920x1080.
I tried restarting my computer again, but I still have the same problem.

There doesn't seem to be anything else wrong with my computer. I can run browsers and other programs just fine so far. So it seems this problem is only with AMD .exes for some reason.

I am at a loss for what to do now. I have had this AMD card for some years now and have updated AMD catalyst many times before without ... Read more

Hi,
I have written multiple applications in VB6.  We send these applications to customers for my companies product configuration in the field.
I use the package and deployment wizard in VB6 SP6
When customers in the field run the setup.exe, they get the error-
    An error occurred while registering the file 'C:\Windows\System32\hid.dll'
This happens for many files - such as Ws32_32.dll, setupapi.dll, mswinsck.ocx...
I have read that this has to do with SysWOW64 having pre-compiled drivers in it that are an older revision than VB6 has access to, and that the vb6 setup.exe that is part of the package cannot update the SysWOW64 drivers.

Is there a way to make a vb6 package that installs on Windows 7?  If not is there at least a way to suppress the errors so that customers do not see them, the application does run.

Thanks,
Martin

A:vb6 sp6 package setup.exe will not register files/drivers

Have you tried running setup.exe 'as administrator' ?

You would probably be better using a MSI installer, such as AdvancedInstaller (AdvancedInstaller ,
a freeware version is available) or Inno Setup (InnoSetup free),
which can handle SysWOW64.



You shouldn't really be be trying to install hid.dll (it should be there already) and you shouldn't register it. Same with Ws32_32.dll

Good morning, everyone.

I'm not sure if I should have posted these questions in the Driver section or the Hardware section of this forum so here I am. I am just about finished setting up my laptop with a clean Windows 7 install. Just a few more drivers left to install. I have two questions I could use some help getting answers for.

I have an Asus N53SV-DH72 with a second generation i7 processor. I believe the laptop supports Wireless Display (WiDi) and Asus has a driver for this on their support website, version 2.1.35.0. It's a bit dated though and I was wondering if I will be safe installing the current version driver for Windows 7 from the Intel website. It is version 3.0.13.0.

Secondly, I'm wanting to setup Windows Media Center and Asus has two TV drivers available but I'm thinking this model laptop does not support or have TV hardware so this may be a moot point. If it did support TV, I didn't know which of the two Asus drivers to install.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I would use the Asus drivers. Sometimes manufactures have custom drivers for their hardware.

First I'd like to rule out the ram. I tried each of the 4 sticks individually in each of the 4 slots on the MOBO.

When I boot from the windows XP CD for the windows setup (right after it has loaded all the drivers and shows the main menu), my computer shuts down after 10-20 seconds.

I have installed windows XP in the same manor by working quickly before it shuts down; sometimes I'd get to the partition part but the PC would shutdown before I could start formatting etc.

If I get passed all of this and onto the copying files section it continues 100% with no problems.

I also did all the common tasks of airing out foreign particles throughout the case and made sure all plugs were in place.

According to Asus's Probe PC with minimal applications running currently:

I'm unsure of any other information to express, but for one thing I'm sure it's not my ram; I can't see all my sticks being defective and assuming the slots on the motherboard are not all defective.

Have you checked if there's "shutdown enabled" in temperature / voltage / fan speed settings in BIOS?

Maybe it thinks the CPU fan speed is too low.
