Ryan, you pwn along with nLite. I like how many extra apps you have that can be slipstreamed with the xp cd. However, a lot should be updated if possible. Either way, this is the greatest and I think only pack of updates that replace xp's original files. Thanks

No, and I have no plans to do so in the future.

However, nLite already supports the direct integration of IE7 into the source and one user on my forums has created an addon for it. I'm also planning on creating an addon myself in the future, but as to when it'll be released is anybody's guess at this point.

AP is for after installation. RVM is for building a fully patched install disc.

Not necessarily. I've used AP a lot when creating XP installation discs with nLite. I just copy all .EXE files from the Critical and Non-Critical folders into nLite so they can be slipstreamed into XP.

I've noticed RyanVM's packs don't contain all the critical updates that Autopatcher lists. After slipstreaming the RyanVM pack, I will fire up AP and several critical updates will be missing. No clue why.

It's because Autopatcher checks for specific hotfixes by looking for the registry entries they create rather than by the actual file versions present on the computer. I include many fixes which supersede those critical security updates, which means as a result that those entries aren't present.

All official MS-supported tools (aka, Windows Update, WSUS, and MBSA) check for specific file revisions when deciding a certain hotfix is installed, and you'll find that with any of those tools you'll come up clean with my pack :). It also wouldn't be a bad idea for Autopatcher to do the same ;).
