Howdy, guys. When one can integrate service pack files into the windows instalation (I use installs like this it on regular basic), I wonder, if it is not possible to integrate not only servicepack files into the installation, but ALSO DirectX files. After all, DX7 or so, what come with Win2k was IIRC replaced with SP2 or SP3 with DX8, so there might be a way? :tazz:

I tried to take a look using the nLite win installation tweaker, but not foudn a thing.

Maybe, like using the ServicePack on win install dir:
update.exe -s:C:\Win2kInstallOrg
...there is something...? :)

I know, there is no "update file", but maybe there is a option to run the setup...? Or something? :)

If it is not possible, then tell me too, so I could stop looking... :) :ph34r:

DirectX is such a small and quick install I wouldn't have thought integrating it into a windows setup would be worth the trouble? Integrating a service pack makes sense because it'sa large upgrade.Another point -- DirectX isn't easily uninstalled so you may prefer to install it separately once you've got windows working the way you want it.

You can slipstream all kinds of apps and drivers. You could basically load your whole computer up if you did it right and all the junk fit on the CD.

This guide is quite good, although a long read. It's a two parter! Part two.
