[solved] mkisofs.exe missing

[solved] mkisofs.exe missing

Postby zaadstra » 17.08.2012, 12:57

Hi,

I downloaded 7.4.1 today which immediately updated to 7.4.2. Nice!

Then I let the generator download many updates to build ISO. The ISO build failed because of missing mkisofs.exe. I found the downloadlink in \static and manually put mkisofs.exe in \bin, then it worked. I suppose the Generator script should have done this but somehow it did not.
(system: xp sp3 nl, no proxy)

It may have been caused by the order of steps I made, when I search the log for mkisofs then I see these entries:

vr 17-08-2012 8:15:24,35 - Info: Option /skipiso detected (several times in wxp enu/nl and o2k10 blocks)

vr 17-08-2012 8:56:37,21 - Info: Starting ISO image creation for wxp enu /includedotnet /exitonerror
vr 17-08-2012 8:56:37,32 - Error: Utility ..\bin\mkisofs.exe not found

after fix:
vr 17-08-2012 9:00:03,42 - Info: Starting ISO image creation for wxp enu /includedotnet /exitonerror
vr 17-08-2012 9:02:17,42 - Info: Created ISO image ..\iso\wsusoffline-wxp-enu.iso
vr 17-08-2012 9:02:17,64 - Info: Created message digest file ..\iso\wsusoffline-wxp-enu-hashes.txt
vr 17-08-2012 9:02:55,84 - Info: Ending ISO image creation for wxp enu

Possibly this is happened because initially I did not select one of the Create ISO images flags, because I wanted to make an all-combined ISO (XP EN/NL + Off 2K10 NL). I think now I will use the USB created directory for this.

The mkisofs.exe not found may be prevented if you put the check and download part just before creating the ISO?

Did you apply the Language fix?

.\doc\faq-enu.txt wrote:Q: I miss IEx, .NET and MSSE installation files for my language. Why aren't they downloaded and what can I do to have them downloaded?
A: Since Service Packs and updates for Windows Vista / 7 / Server 2008(R2) are multilingual, there's no 24-language selection table for these platforms, so by default, only the English and German versions of those localized installation packages for IEx, .NET and MSSE will be downloaded.
To have your favorite locale(s) downloaded in addition, you may use the ...\cmd\AddCustomLanguageSupport.cmd script.


If the mkisofs.exe problem occures, start download, when Build ISO is selected.
WSUSOU only downloads mkisofs.exe when it is needed to create an ISO.

Are there any objections to include the following changes?

Deleting in ...\cmd\DownloadUpdates.cmd [r394] (line 359 ff.)
Code: Select all
rem *** Download mkisofs tool ***
if "%SKIP_DL%"=="1" goto SkipMkIsoFs
if "%SKIP_ISO%"=="1" goto SkipMkIsoFs
if exist ..\bin\mkisofs.exe goto SkipMkIsoFs

if errorlevel 1 goto DownloadError
echo %DATE% %TIME% - Info: Downloaded mkisofs tool >>%DOWNLOAD_LOGFILE%
:SkipMkIsoFs


and insert adjusted into ...\cmd\CreateISOImage.cmd

Thanks, harry,

I'll remove the /skipiso switch from UpdateGenerator and DownloadUpdates.cmd scripts to avoid those erroneous download / ISO image creation sequences, but I dislike CreateISOImage.cmd to perform any download.

2. Select Options.
3. per selected product and language (Auto download after make ISO)
4. press [Start]
