Windows 2000 includes SysOCmgr.exe (Optional Components) located at %SystemRoot%\system32.
When you open a CMD prompt and type Sysocmgr /?, the following image is displayed: A typical command line could be:
sysocmgr /i:%SystemRoot%\inf\sysoc.inf /u:c:\ocm.txt /q
where c:\oc.txt is an answer file that contains a \[Components\] and/or a \[NetOptionalComponents\] section. Any answer file that contains the required section(s) is acceptable, as SysOCmgr.exe only parses these sections. Here is an example:
\[Components\] Netoc = on Reminst = on Paint = off pinball = off Solitaire = off \[NetOptionalComponents\] lpdsvc = 1 SimpTcp = 1 wins = 1NOTE:You can NOT install / uninstall core components, such as COM+, Distributed Transaction Coordinator, and the Microsoft Fax Service.
