RVM 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.
Addition: Added a new advanced option to cache driver.cab. This comes in
handy for those of us who integrate multiple copies of our disks. It
dramatically speeds up multiple integrations by about 10 minutes (Depending
on your computer's speed). It detects if it is xp home, pro. 2003 and it
also verifies the md5hash of each file that was added to driver.cab. If 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
integration. If 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 addons. They
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_Compress. It 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
rvmtempextracted. If 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:
Addition: Added code to prevent users from integrating RyanVM's 2.2x
Updatepacks over 2.1.x UpdatePacks. - Requested by RyanVM for future
Addition: Added new @PLUGINS variable for use with [FileCopy], [FileMove],
[DirCopy], [DirMove], [RunFile] and the new [CreateCab] and [ExpandCab]
sections. This new variable will allow a UpdatePack/Addon creator to specify
the RVM Integrators PLUGINS directory as a place of source/Destination of
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
Addition: Added code to automatically parse txtsetup.sif to see which
files can be compressed in the i386 directory. It 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.ini. It 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.exe. Thanks 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 file. Now 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 file. Now it only expands the file
once and then recompresses when it finishes all edits.
Improvement: Changed the way the integrator detects Upgrade disks.
Hopefully this will be more universal. Only 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
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
Improvement: Added more advanced debugging. When 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
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 disks. Please check each os you
have to see if it is detected correctly. If it is not please post your
Pidgen.dll file So I can figure out why.
