Windows Tablet 2005 in Windows XP
Way back in 2007 I found a guide to integrate Windows Tablet 2005 components into Windows XP by using files provided free from Microsoft!!!
A month or two ago I revised my installation method and updated the files to SP3, this gets rid of all the bugs in previous service packs and saves time because no Tablet related hotfixes need to be installed.
I have put together an updated package of everything needed to integrate Windows Tablet 2005 SP3 components into your Windows XP SP3 CD!
[SIZE="3"]Quick steps to integrating Tablet [/SIZE]
[SIZE="2"]Step 1.[/SIZE] Copy your Windows XP CD to a folder on your computer. How? place your Windows XP CD into your CD/DVD drive, locate your CD/DVD drive and then select all files and folders, copy them to a folder on your computer.
[SIZE="2"]Step 2.[/SIZE] Download "The Package" listed below and copy the folders into your Windows XP CD files you just copied to your computer.
[SIZE="2"]Step 3.[/SIZE] Add the lines below to your "SVCPACK.INF" file, this file is located in the "I386" folder. If this file does not exist and you have no idea what SVCPACK is take a look HERE.
Code: Select all
[SIZE="2"]Step 4.[/SIZE] Once the above steps have been completed you can now make a new ISO, this can be easily done by using nLite, free download:)
[SIZE="2"]Step 5.[/SIZE] Best to test your newly created ISO in a virtual machine, for example: VMWare or if feeling adventure you can try it on a real live system
- This is my personal way of integrating and installing Tablet features, you may follow the original guide or use your own way of installing the components!
- This way of integrating the Tablet components you will not see anything out of the ordinary when installing, all will install silently
- After installing and you having problems loging in you may need to change the registry entry located in ULTIMATE.BAT to a "string value"
- You may execute any of the newer .NET Frameworks after "NETFX.CMD" and "ULTIMATE.BAT" in SVCPACK.INF or post Windows XP install
