    Hello folks,
    although i have Dual Partition one being CP PRo and the other being MCenter 2005 all being SLP installed, (got to love those OEM SLP CD ,offline activation methods): but i was wondering if their was a proper SP3 released for Media Center 2005: their are a lots of topic floating around the net stating the methods for slipstreaming with SP3 the MCenter 2005 : which would inevitably lead to Media Dancer and and Win DVD maker and the trusted Media Center Themes and application losing out on this methods.
    But i was wondering if their was a proper methods to slipstream and if it was possible without losing on those feature.
    If someone was able to do so, please guide me.



    Thank you.

    Me too,

    Some time back I ended up using runonce.cmd to acheive MCE 2005 SP3 corrctly working:

    Code:
    cmdow @ /HID
    @echo off

    PAUSE
    
    
    EXIT
    
    This installed all of the updates (some will need updating) correctly.
    I could work on a guide to to this if there is interest.
    Or is there a better way yet, I still get the odd job with MCE needing clean install etc, so a nice slipstream would be much better.

    if you do get it slipstreamed properly you might as well go ahead and slipstream any NET frameworks and the updates for each that you will need because you will run into install problems from windows update.

    i have a xp mce 2005 iso with sp3 that i had used (before i got what i needed from here) and it was a pita to get NET working and it never got updated properly, no matter what i tried. also the newest mmc version did not work correctly either, so adjusting any services was out of the question.

    your mileage may vary, and you may have more/different problems than i did once it's setup

    just my $.02
