Administrator Tarun Posted February 28, 2008 Administrator Share Posted February 28, 2008 RyanVM Integrator is not just an integrator. It's main purpose is to actually slipstream hotfixes and third party utilities into your Windows install disks. Integrating is simply a way to attatch setup files into your windows disk and have them install at a specific moment during Windows setup. Slipstreaming will actually overwrite older files and place itself directly into the windows installation. Changes:Improvement: ASMS files are automatically compressed. Now ASMS compression takes place after txtsetup.sif is updated.Addition: New File Menu which links to the "Unattended Parameters" threadSo that users can learn how to use the integrators switches to automate processes.Improvement: [FileCopy] and [FileMove] will now detect if a file is compressed and extract the file as needed.Fixed: When no Lable is given for the iso name the integrator was giving it a name of "%3" but now it will use "RVMi" by default.Addition: New File Menu "Optimize System Files Now" which will perform "Optimize System Files" only.Addition: If files are compressed on the original source then the integrator will compress the new files automatically.Addition: Added many new Unattended Parameters! You can read about them here: http://siginetsoftware.com/forum/showthread.php?t=283Improvement: WPI Plugin files are only copied if needed or newer version exists.Fixed: The gui now supports Large (120 DPI) Fonts.Change: When a settings file is loaded it is now copied to integrator.ini instead of pointing the integrator to a different settings file.Addition: The integrator will now save your original timestamps on edited files.Improvement: Bigger Graphical User Interface, with a new Logo, Thanks to HJW and Wolfx2!Improvement: Updated English_1.5.lng file.Improvement: Changed the way certain files are executed to give better compatability with system settings.Addition: Added a new advanced option to cache driver.cabThis comes in handy for those of us who integrate multiple copies of our disksIt dramatically speeds up multiple integrations by about 10 minutes (Depending on your computer's speed)It detects if it is xp home, pro2003 and it also verifies the md5hash of each file that was added to driver.cabIf the cached files match all the above then it copies the cached driver.cab instead of recompressing driver.cab..which is the longest portion of integrationIf it doesn't match all the above then it will perform a recompression of driver.cab and cache the finished files for later.Addition: Added the ability to add switchless .exe files as addonsThey are automatically added to svcpack and svcpack.inf.Addition: Added a new plugin.."ReCompress Update/AddonPacks"This new plugin will utalize the integrator to allow a user to optimize any UpdatePacks/AddonPacks so that when used for integration they will not need to compress most files found in I386_CompressIt also will ask for a txtsetup.sif file you can specify for the integrator to parse to find files that are compressable(Specifying a txtsetup.sif file is reccommended..but is completely optional.)Addition: Added the option to SlipStream a ServicePack file without performing an integration.Addition: Added a new Inputbox to the "MakeISO Tab" (This also means there is a new addition to the English_1.5.lng file as well: 1135 = Browse To the Location Which Contains the Finished I386 Directory.)Addition: The integrator now checks the I386 Directory for existing compressed or uncompressed files which are being moved from rvmtemp\extractedIf they exist they are deleted before the transfer.Addition: Added usable Fourth pole in ExtraFileEdits which forces the integrator to use Case Sensativity when editing files- Requested by: enu_user.Addition: Added code to prevent users from integrating RyanVM's 2.2x Updatepacks over 2.1.x UpdatePacks- Requested by RyanVM for future UpdatePacks.Addition: Added new @PLUGINS variable for use with [FileCopy], [FileMove], [DirCopy], [DirMove], [RunFile] and the new [CreateCab] and [ExpandCab] sectionsThis new variable will allow a UpdatePack/Addon creator to specify the RVM Integrators PLUGINS directory as a place of source/Destination of files.Addition: You can now use parameters in the [RunFile] section.Addition: Added 2 new Sections that can be used in any entries file for expanding and creating complete cab archives[ExpandCab] and [CreateCab]They were mainly created so that people can make Media Center UpdatePacks/Addons.Addition: Added code to automatically parse txtsetup.sif to see which files can be compressed in the i386 directoryIt also automatically compresses cat files too(I386_compress is still available as well.)Addition: Added support to automatically parse drvindex.inf to see if files need to be copied or moved to driver.cab(drivercab_copy and drivercab_move are still available as well.)Addition: mmsetup.cab recompression is automatically performed if msmsgs.exe is found in the updatepack or if the section mmssetupcab_move is found in entries.iniIt does not recompress mmsetup.cab if neither of those areas are found.Addition: Completly removed modifype.exe due to Vista incompatabilities and replaced it with n7Epsilon's PEChecksum.exeThanks n7Epsilon! (This file is used in the patch addons to make sure the correct PEHeaders are placed in HexEdited files.)Addition: When you click on the Config: integrator.ini located on the main gui tab it will open the ini in notepad.Improvement: [HexEdit] sections were expanding and recompressing files for every single edit made to the fileNow it only expands the file once and then recompresses when it finishes all edits.Improvement: [ExtraFileEdits] sections were expanding and recompressing files for every single edit made to the fileNow it only expands the file once and then recompresses when it finishes all edits.Improvement: Changed the way the integrator detects Upgrade disksHopefully this will be more universalOnly tested on windows XP.Improvement: Files are now moved instead of copied during the "Shifting Files Around" stage of integration which will drastically improve on the integration time.Improvement: The integrator will now add a .ini to the end of any filename given in Save Settings (if .ini doesn't allready exist at the end of the name).Improvement: Forced [EditFile] to create any directory structure and the file it is editing if it does not allready exist.Improvement: Posted new English_1.5.lng file which contains more areas to translate(Like the menu items at the top)Improvement: Re-Wrote the entire Translation portion of the integrator so that it does not need to know the exact amount of lines used for translation.Improvement: Added more advanced debuggingWhen you select the advanced debug features it will show a lot more paths in the log.Improvement: The Advanced Option "Convert Unicode to ANSI" feature should be obsolete now so it has been removed.Improvement: Made the integrator check if at least 1.5 GB of space is available to perform integration.Improvement: Got rid of the need for xcopy.exe.Fixed: The integrator is now fully compatable with Windows Vista x86 and x64 versions.Fixed: Path issues with 7zdn.exe which should get rid of a lot of bugs with spaces and symbols in the paths.Fixed: Slipstreaming during integration when selecting "<NO>" didn't always run.Fixed: "French Windows XP retail and OEM CD are correctly recognized, but not the corporate one."Fixed: Detection of Corporate and Upgrade disksPlease check each os you have to see if it is detected correctlyIf it is not please post your Pidgen.dll file So I can figure out why.Download: RyanVM Integrator 1.5 Link: Lunarsoft Frontpage Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
