I hope you had a good summer! It's that patch time of the month again! Here are the revised update packs for September 2009!
Please note there have been some big changes to logistixonline.com over the summer, but I still continue to create update packs due to the high demand and many praises, so a big thank you to you all!
All types of update packs now come in smaller WinRAR format. This allows for better compression, but also allows technicians on slower internet connections to download multiple, smaller files rather than single larger files.
To download the files, please navigate to logistixonline.com and click on 'File Library'. The rest is self explanatory and all files come with instructions and dates when files were published
The following updates are available:
Logistix Google Earth
Logistix Office 2007 Compatibility
Logistix Plugins Plus
Logistix Windows XP SP3 Post Updates
Logistix .NET Framework
How are you getting on with the new downloads/instructions?
Got the 5 part XP one downloaded yesterday - not had chance to try it yet but it sounds simple enough
Is there any particular reason you had to break it up? It would be quite handy to have the part 1-5 links direct from the page listing them rather than having to click through to each page, click download, click back, click to next etc, if possible.
Well there are several reasons. Firstly it's easier for technicians on slower connections and secondly, my host limits maximum file sizes to 64MB (which is normal).
The other problem is some people just link directly to the download and not my website so I receive no hits. I provide the packages for free, so a small amount of publicity shouldn't be too much to ask
By all means, once you have the script and files, you can ZIP or RAR it into one large file.

What I was trying to say wasn't "Could you link directly to the file" more "Is there a need to have an additional page for each single part of the download?". At the moment, you have to go main list -> part 1 page -> download <- list -> part 2 page etc, would having all 5 files linked to their http://www.logistixonline.com/index....file&fileid=xx from the main list page for the XP patch set make a difference? Just handy if you can click down a list to grab all the parts without going back and forth

Thanks for clarifying what you meant. It's something I will look into, thanks
Trying to deploy the Google Earth MSI and getting
"Add Operation failed. Unable to extract deployment information from the package. Run validation on the package to make sure the package is correct"
Ive copied the whole folder across not the the MSI, any ideas?
Getting this on all the 2003 R2 and non R2 servers ive tried
Just a quick Q before I try it and break something - in the instructions, it mentions the PATHTOFIXES variable and setting this if the directory is different. Is it possible to just set this to . so the batch will run from anywhere or is there a specific reason you haven't done/couldn't do this?
I'll have a look at this for you this evening.Trying to deploy the Google Earth MSI and getting
How would you propose this works? I simply followed Microsoft's guidelines when I originally setup the files to script installation of multiple files. The single variable allows you to change it to a path of your choice, including UNC paths.Is it possible to just set this to . so the batch will run from anywhere

No I haven't tried what you're suggesting, but if it works, then please post what code you're using
I shall find myself a victim... Er... Volunteer... Er... Customer shortly...
Seems to work fine - just REM'd out the SET line and did a search and replace on the rest...
Working from flash drive, locally and network drive - haven't tested with a UNC path yet though.Code:REM set PATHTOFIXES=C:\logistixonline.com\XPSP3 TITLE Installing Microsoft Windows Internet Explorer 8 echo. echo Installing IE8-WindowsXP-x86-ENU.exe... .\IE8-WindowsXP-x86-ENU.exe /quiet /passive /norestart echo. TITLE Installing Windows Media Player 11 echo. echo Installing Windows Media Player 11 Part 1... .\wmfdist11.exe /quiet /passive /norestart echo. echo Installing Windows Media Player 11 Part 2... .\wmp11.exe /quiet /passive /norestart echo. echo Installing WindowsXP-KB941569-x86-ENU.EXE... .\WindowsXP-KB941569-x86-ENU.EXE /quiet /passive echo. TITLE Installing Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool v2.14 echo. echo Installing windows-kb890830-v2.14.exe... .\windows-kb890830-v2.14.exe /quiet
Looks good. You learn something new everyday! Let me know if it works OK with UNC paths, but also directories with spaces.
DOS doesn't like UNC paths very much in a variety of circumstances. It is good practice to put this right at the start of any batch file that references files in the same or sub-folders:Let me know if it works OK with UNC paths
If you want to get back to wherever you were, make this the last command:
The pushd line changes the working-directory to the folder where the batch file lives, and if that happens to be a UNC path then it (necessarily) maps a temporary drive letter there first.
