Adding Language Packs

see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc766472%28v=ws.10%29.aspx

Copy a Language Pack to the Windows Distribution

from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc765987%28v=ws.10%29.aspx

Important: start cmd as Administrator. From the Startmenu, select cmd by right mouse button and select: "Run as Administrator"

Network shares are not available in this environment, so better copy all required files to c:\ before hand.

From Linux:

# /mnt: mount ISO with Language Packs (SP1)
# $WORK/installfiles: contents of a Win7 SP1 installation DVD

WORK=/tmp/win7

cd $WORK
mkdir langpacks-extracted
cd langpacks-extracted
cabextract /mnt/langpacks/de-de/lp.cab
mkdir -p installfiles/langpacks
rsync -av /mnt/langpacks/de-de installfiles/langpacks/
rsync -av langpacks/de-de/sp1/sources/license/. installfiles/sources/license/.
rsync -av langpacks/de-de/sp1/setup/sources/. installfiles/sources/.

Steps 5-8 must be performed on a Windows System with WAIK tools.

Test:

net localgroup users /delete localadmin
System error 5 has occurred.
Access is denied.

This is not a bug, it is a feature of Windows 7, named UAC (User Account Control). By default, an application that is started by a user who is a member of the Administrator group, is executed with normal (Users) priviliges. The user has the oppurtinuty to start that application by right-click and "Run as Administrator" without further password queries.

.Net Framework 3.5

is part of the Windows 7 base installation.

Proxy

netsh.exe winhttp set proxy proxy:3128 "<local>;*.dass-it.de"

winlogon

when a system has joind a domain, local users are no longer displayed, nor are the domains displayed as select-box.

So, if the users tries to logon as a local user, he has to select "other user" and type NETBIOSNAME\USERNAME.

However, he can also type

.\USERNAME

("." is taken as local system)

The settings from

hkey_local_machine\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\winlogon

are only partly evaluated.

Last user is now stored at:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI]
"LastLoggedOnProvider"=""
"LastLoggedOnSAMUser"=""
"LastLoggedOnUser"=""
