Windows XP Tablet Edition Depolyment problem

Hi,

I am using the Microsoft Single Image deployment method for deploying Windows XP Tablet Edition to our tablet PC's, but I am running into problems at the sysprep mini-setup stage.

I have followed the instructions from microsoft, but during Installing Windows Components (I think this is where the Tablet extensions are beign installed) I am been asked to locate following file "tpgwlnot.dll". I can find this if i click browse and goto the NETFX directory. i am then asked for smartnav.htm and some various .sql files. i cannot find any of these. if i cancel them, sysprep mini-setup finishes and boots up fine. Everything working.

I need to suppress these prompts or work out why I am been asked for them and what they are for.

Any ideas guys?

Thanks

Took this from a website... Shows that the "tpgwlnot.dll" file is used in conjunction with WinLogon.exe. So I would say its pretty vital.

"When the Winlogon desktop is active (for example, the user is logging in or is unlocking his or her machine), the Tablet PC Input Panel (TIP) can be used to enter credentials. Because the Wisptis.exe process executes only in a user’s session, mouse emulation is then needed to be able to use the TIP. A small DLL file, named Tpgwlnot.dll, executes in the Winlogon.exe process and performs that mouse emulation, though only with basic functionality—no pen-based actions are detected. Tpgwlnot.dll also launches Wisptis.exe when a user first logs on and restarts it if needed (for example, Wisptis.exe terminates because the user ends the process or an exception occurs)."

The HTM file will only be a help file, or an information page (HTM is the extention for webpages).

The SQL files may not be immediately vital, but they could be used by windows to catalogue drivers and help pages etc. So I would suggest making sure they are installed.

Not sure why they are not installing... what media do you have for the operating system?

Thanks for the info.

The media been used for the image is an OSD image of Windows XP SP2 (patched). The additional tabletpc components have (Tabletpc.cab/netfx) have been put in the sysprep folder and everything has been setup as discussed, but as discussed I am been asked for these files;

During mini-setup, the stage Registers Components, a windows 'Windows component Wizard' shows. I assume this is where the tablet components are installed.

I get the following:

'Files Needed'
The file 'tpgwlnot.dll' on Windows XP Professional CD 2 is needed.

I can find that file if I browse and find it manually.

I am also asked for the following files; smartnav.htm, InstallPersistSqlState.sql, InstallSqlStateTemplate.sql, InstallSqlState.sql, UnInstallPersistSqlState.sql, UninstallSqlState.sql, UnInstallSqlStateTemplate.sql.

Thanks

Guys, i found the answer... it was due to using the Single Image Deployment method - the image files were SP2, but the additional tablet files were tablet Edition 2003. They should of been tablet Edition 2005 (which is really SP2)

Thanks though!
