In this scenario, Package Manager installs only the package for hotfix 929761.
When this problem occurs, information that resembles the following may appear in the Cbs.log file:
2007-07-25 13:17:05, Info CBS Pkgmgr: called with: "Pkgmgr /ip /m:c:\temp\Windows6.0-KB932590-x86.cab" 2007-07-25 13:17:05, Info CSI 00000001@2007/7/25:20:17:05.165 WcpInitialize (wcp.dll version 0.0.0.5) called (stack @0x64ee2e32 @0xf72c09 @0xf6d617 @0xf6dffc @0x772e36ed @0x776fa174) 2007-07-25 13:17:05, Info CBS Session: 29871864:3301734882 initialized. 2007-07-25 13:17:05, Info CBS Pkgmgr: Installing package from: c:\temp\Windows6.0-KB932590-x86.cab 2007-07-25 13:17:05, Info CBS Appl: detect Parent, Package: Package_1_for_KB929761~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~220.127.116.11, Parent: Microsoft- Windows-Foundation-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~6.0.6000.16386, Disposition = 1003, VersionComp: 1, ServiceComp: 1, BuildComp: 1, DistributionComp: 1, RevisionComp:1, Exist: 1
In this example Cbs.log file, Package Manager indicates that it will install the .cab file for hotfix 932590. However, it actually installs the Package_1_for_KB929761~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~18.104.22.168 package. This is the hotfix 929761 package.
Note This problem also applies to Windows Server 2008.
This problem occurs because Package Manager cannot manage two or more packages in the same sandbox.
To work around this problem perform one of the following methods.
Expand each package to different folder before you installing them with pkgmgr. To do this, type the following commands at a command prompt:
In these commands, CabFile represents the .cab file for the hotfix package.
Another workaround is to use DISM to service Windows Vista SP1 and Windows Server 2008 offline images.
Considerations of using DISM with Windows Server 2008/Vista SP1 Images:
The Windows image that you are updating must be Windows Vista with SP1 or Windows Server 2008 or later.
If you are servicing a Windows Vista with SP1 or Windows Server 2008 image, DISM will translate the DISM command to the equivalent Package Manager command so that the image can be updated. DISM provides functional parity to Package Manager.
Only offline scenarios are supported
DISM is pre-installed with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, and is included in the Windows Automated Installation Kit for Windows 7. The Windows Automated Installation Kit can be installed on Windows Vista and Windows 2008.
3. At a command prompt, type the following command to add a specific package to the image. You can add multiple packages on one command line. The packages will be installed in the order listed in the command line.
