    Source Path (WinXP SP-1)

    I have a reg listing for the source path keys for Win2K... but they appear to be different for XP...

    If I want to copy the files to my hard drive, what key do I need to change to re-set the source path for the install files?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Maybe it's too early in the morning for me, Chuck, but I'm afraid I don't understand what you're trying to do. Would you elaborate a little, please? Or maybe attach this registry hack in TXT form so we could see it.

    Chuck,

    It depends. Was SP-1 integrated in the install or a separate install after XP? I've attached an excerpt from the registry on my XP Pro machine at work.

    Re: Source Path (WinXP SP-1)

    Chuck, the registry entries for XP and 2000 are the same for SourcePath. Remember that XP is essentially an upgraded version of Win2000.

    For whatever reason I cannot view the text file that Joe posted, so here are the two keys that you need to change:<pre>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWin dows NTCurrentVersionSourcePath
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentV ersionSetupSourcePath</pre>

    Note that you do not include the i386 directory in the path to the installation folder; it is assumed. Thus, if your CD's i386 folder exists at <code>c:xpsetupi386</code> the correct path in the registry would read <code>c:xpsetup</code>.

    Hope that helps,
    -Mark
