For some reason, the install errors at:

Code: Select all

start /wait rundll32 setupapi.dll InstallHinfSection AllShortcuts 128


Code: Select all

Windows cannot find Copy2Gac.exe
What's wrong here?

I also get a "cmdow is not a reconized command" despite the program being there...though this does not seem to affect much.

EDIT: apparently copy2gac.exe doesn't exist in the folder its supposed to...there is, however, a copy2gac.exe.config there.

Also, the onscreen keyboard in the tablet writing area doesn't show up. the default windows one works though.

Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 adds to the recognition of handwriting and stylus for entry into the code of Windows XP Professional base. The update of tablet PC operating system helps users navigate through the Windows, enter the URL, fill in digital forms and draw pictures with a style.

Hey all,

Great guide. Have everything working bar the keyboard input.

I can't get copy2gac.exe to work because i the .Net framework version is 1.1 ... Is there a work around for this or do I have to downgrade the .Net version?

Thanks in advance for your help

There is a warning from Microsoft Security Essentials:


HideExec.BD (AVG)
WIn32/CMDOW.143 (ESET)
Tool-HideWindow (McAfee)
Application/HideWindow.S (Panda)
Trojan.HideWindow (Sunbelt Software)
SecurityRisk.Cmdow (Symantec)
RiskTool.HideWindows.K (VirusBuster)

I'm confused.
Is this a virus or trojan or any other malware?

OK, it seems this is a programm to hide the command windows during the installation.

Then this "Tablet PC Edition" is not like an "original".

Contains this "package" parts of English language?
I want to create a German XP Tablet Edition from a German XP Pro.

Or is there a German "package"?

Hi, Thanks for the XP to XP tablet conversion.

I have read the page about creating a modified SVCPACK.INF file but I skipped the section about installing WMP 9/10 as I have WMP11 in XP PRO which I converted to XP tablet
Maybe I did too many steps, most of it works fine however there is some bugs/faults I've discovered:

  • 'Keyboard in the Tablet PC Input Panel is missing
  • 'Undocked' option for the Tablet PC Input Panel closes the panel for some reason.
  • 'Tablet PC' tab in 'Tablet and Pen Settings' missing
  • 'Settings' button for each 'Pen Action' in 'Pen Options', 'Tablet and Pen Settings' does not do anything
  • 'Tablet PC Tutorials', the page that had them has been replaced by Microsoft and I don't know if Google cache has the page or if somebody has it as an offline HTML file/other file type
  • 'System Update' web page is there but part of it displays an error

When Installing I got an error saying 'Installation failed'
The command that CMD is handling when it says it is:

Code: Select all

start /wait rundll32 setupapi.dll InstallHinfSection AllShortcuts 128

I am Unsure if this is related to the MS .net 'copy2gac.exe could not be found' as the error above it appeared right after that error.

I have found the file on modified the XP ISO so I copied it over however this was after windows XP tablet was installed so it may still not be working.

I am also unsure if this has anything to do with the bugs/faults listed above, I doubt it unless the installation failed is related to or setupapi.dll

Here is the source for SVCPACK.INF:

Code: Select all

;Windows XP
Signature="$Windows NT$"



Q330994.exe /Q:A /R:N
Q819696.exe /Q /O /N /Z
KB824146.exe /Q /O /N /Z


Any Ideas how to fix these?

Regards, Snipe

I don't really know Win Tablet that well, can you look in Device Manager & see any errors for Human Interface Device or Mouse/Pointing Device?

Hello Sull86, I can't download the package you mentioned for integrating the tablet edition files to the Windows XP image. Could you send a working downloadable link for me? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
