[Release] OEMScan Addons v1.4.1

OEM A.C.T. (OEM Activation Control Technology)
This is a method that allows you to create a Windows XP Setup disk that has Multiple Manufacturer oembios.* files on it. During installation a script is run that determines what oembios.* files are needed for the system so that you will have a pre-activated install. This will help lessen the times that you need to call Microsoft for activation. :D

Does anybody else get a 404 error when they try to download the files?

Should the other thread be stickied instead of this one?

I noticed my oemcopy.cmd needed to be changed to work from inside a running windows install. All files/folders are in the same directory (like "OEMCOPY" as the oemcopy.cmd file. This is what works for me:

copy oemlogo.bmp %SystemRoot%\System32\
copy oeminfo.ini %SystemRoot%\System32\
copy oobeinfo.ini %SystemRoot%\system32\oobe\
copy themes\*.* %SystemRoot%\Resources\Themes\
copy walls\*.* %SystemRoot%\Web\Wallpaper\

Now to figure out why my winnt.sif entry didn't set the wallpaper correctly.


maybe winnt.sif should be CustomDefaultThemeFile=%SystemRoot%\Resources\Themes\Gateway.theme

and there is no space inside themes, it just seems to add it on this post...

I'm having a bit of a play around with the configuration of the OEM scan on an XP Pro post-SP3 disk, and am getting some rather odd results with the SLP license key not working properly even when I'm using a working WINNT.SIF from previous builds and using the exact same HP oem folders that've worked on this machine before. I'm not too fussed about it as I'll figure that out eventually, but I'm going to try and jerry-rig OEMSCAN so it extracts the relevant files from 7z components to the local drive and everything runs from there, with some kind of cleanup routine (I use pen drive installs and if the system is installing on USB1 the performance is hideous). Basically, I'm nicking the workflow from DriverPacks. If anyone's got a good reason for not doing it, can you let me know?
