Thanks for the feedback. I'll add longer warning messages for any missing files as suggested. Will also add information about ImDisk to the docs when I get the chance. I do not plan to add an option to auto install ImDisk as I don't want to make any changes to someone else's Host System. In terms of minlogon.exe - the docs clearly state where this file needs to be copied. Whilst I accept that your suggestion might make life easier, I would discourage anyone who can't follow these simple instructions from using the project.
One error during build
FileRename - Failed to rename file: [%BaseDir%\IMG\empty.img] to:[%BaseDir%\IMG\minixp.img] :The system cannot find the file specifiedI think its suppose to be [%BaseDir%\Files\empty.img]\
Actually, no it's not. This is the second time you have had an error relating to files extracted by 7-zip not being found. I wonder if there is a delay in extracting these files on your system. I have uploaded a new version of the Copy2DiskImage script with the following bolded
line 23 added (numbers are new line numbers when edited in Winbuilder) -
22 ShellExecute,Hide,"%BaseDir%\Projects\Tools\7za.exe","e -o%BaseDir%\IMG %BaseDir%\Projects\Files\empty.zip"
24 Echo,"Renaming Disk Image as minixp.img..."
I've uploaded the edited 2_copy2disk.script to the new Temporary File Host
has implemented. Please test and feedback - hopefully the 5 second delay in renaming the disk image will resolve this issue for you. @Wimb
Thanks for testing.
I had to add XP_GOLD\I386\ASMS\6000\MSFT\VCRTL\MSVCP60.DLL to WINDOWS\System32
otherwise there was Error - Services.exe has missing file ....MSVCP60.DLL
I experienced this error with Service Packs 2 & 3 - not with Gold or SP1 sources. The Core Files script already adds MSVCP60.DLL if SP2 or SP3 sources are detected - I will consider adding it for all builds, however it's definitely not in Dietmar's original file list. I can't replicate this error at the moment when using Gold or SP1 sources. Will try to investigate. Have you added any additional services? Is it possibly due to different language source files?
XP SP2 or SP3 have Error in WinBuilder and did not work for me.
What errors? My English language SP2 and SP3 sources work fine for me but I haven't tested with any other sources. Also what host OS are you using?@everyone
Could really use some more beta testers!
