    Help with Lenovo Thin Installer



      I am having problems with Thin Installer running correctly with Windows XP Image deployment using LANDesk provisioning.

      I have followed the instructions on this site and have it working fine for Windows 7 http://community.landesk.com/support/message/50389#50389


      Below is the error message I am getting back.



      action index=1200


      action index=1201


      action index=1202


      action index=1203


      action index=1204


      error:[80001000H]File c:\temp\ThinInstaller\ThinInstaller.exe not found.

      Execute result:




      I am not sure what’s going on here because the files are all in the temp folder.  Thin Installer loads fine, downloads the relevant drivers and installs them.  But right at the end the job fails with the error message above.

      I have also noticed that the task to map the drive completes successfully (used for the Thin Installer repository and to copy the Thin Installer files) however it remains disconnected when I try to browse to it from My Computer.


      If anyone can help I would really appreciate it.

          Check the pre-reqeuistes..



          Software requirements
          The following operating systems are supported:
          - Microsoft Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 or higher
          - Microsoft Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2 or higher
          - Microsoft Windows XP Home with Service Pack 2 or higher
          - Microsoft Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit)
          Microsoft .NET Framework version 1.1 with Service Pack 1 or Microsoft
          .NET Framework version 2.0 is required for Thin Installer to work
          correctly. Use Microsoft Windows Update to ensure that Microsoft .NET
          Framework 1.1 or 2.0 is installed on your system.



          I guess you missing .net framework..

            Below are the settings I use for Thininstaller.  Be careful with the Command-line parameters, I believe that Thininstaller is very particular with case-sensitvitiy and location of each parameter.  I pretty much copied this from their manual.  I'm no Thininstaller expert.


            Target path and filename:

            c:\Program Files (x86)\ThinInstaller\Thininstaller.exe


            Command-line parameters:

            /CM -search A -action INSTALL -noicon -repository \\snnyw-landesk\drivers\lenovo -includerebootpackages 1,3,4 -noreboot


            Working directory:

            c:\Program Files (x86)\ThinInstaller\


            Expected return value:
