  1. Hmmm, thats not good. Get orken. No I use a clean wizard every time I just drag&drop the patches and make the cd.
  2. I don't want to put the dll back in I want to report this bug so it gets fixed. Or you prefer that this bug will be remain unseen and will cumulate with others exploding in somebody's else unattended CDs? Oh my, the cd bugs are exploding!!! Run!!!!!!!!
  3. As you could note from the names i'm using italian version of windows I can't just go and integrate english hotfixes in it.
  4. I've integrated KB902400 along with XPize and other hotfixes (that all get completely integrated) but strangely the olecli32.dll installed by the cd is not the one present in KB902400 so windows update offers to install the update again. Any idea? Here's the list of the patches I did integrate in the CD: WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe WindowsMedia10-KB913800-x86-ITA.exe WindowsMedia10-KB917734-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB873339-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB885835-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB885836-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB886185-x86-ita.exe WindowsXP-KB888113-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB888302-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB890046-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB890859-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB891781-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB893756-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB894391-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB896358-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB896423-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB896424-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB896428-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB898461-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB899587-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB899589-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB899591-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB900485-v2-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB900725-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB901017-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB901214-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB902400-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB904706-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB905414-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB905749-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB908519-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB908531-v2-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB910437-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB911280-v2-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB911562-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB911567-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB911927-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB912919-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB913580-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB914388-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB914389-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB916281-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB916595-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB917159-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB917344-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB917953-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB918439-x86-ITA.exe
  5. IE can be launched as standalone but I think that including IE binaries inside WPI archive would violate just a few hundred copyright laws.
  6. No it doesn't check them it just "scans" the surface but since there are no write/read errors the bad bytes can't be detected.
  7. I didn't manage to understand the translated description: is it an utility to test memory cards or is it an utility to recover data from memory cards?
  8. If you create an Iso of the folder with ultraiso and you right click on the root of the dvd tree, select properties and then click on the Optimize CD checkbox then you can make all the 5 office cds INTO A SINGLE CD. No i'm not joking It will fit inside a single cd. You have to make an admin install of each office first. It gets shrunken down because optimized isos group the files with identical data.
  9. Does somebody here knows if an application to test memory card/usb pendrives exists? I wanted to create one (freeware) but I wanted to be sure that there aren't other applications to do that stuff around. Does anybody knows if such an application exists? If not, do you have any idea/suggestion for how such an application should be realized and what it should include (not programming suggestions I already have all the tools I need to make one I'd like suggestions on the features and the UI)? If some of you didn't know many cheap pendrives and memory cards come with broken "sectors", the sector word is erroneus because we're talking most of the times about single bits. You can't see if they're broken, Windows won't give you errors, you would only see that by filling the memorycard/pendrive with data and verifying if it has been corrupted by the transfer. This doesn't happen for pendrives with HDs inside. Please any suggestion or info would be greatly appreciated so I will be able to know if it will be worth to make it (if there aren't other free alternatives around) and I will be also able to design a good application from the start. Thanks.
  10. Some of the features I'd like to see: In the percentbar of the install dialog the percentage of each program should be proportional to the file size of the invoked setup (for example office should have a much bigger range on the percentbar than small programs like emule) If possible a smooth percentbar animation, instead of the percentbar jumping from a value to another. The ability of forcing all the windows opened by certain setups to stay minimized in background this can be done by tracking the handle that calls each process. The "Begin install" button on the bottom-right side, like it is in the wizard that appear after windows has installed. Windows installer integration with the install dialog to show what is currently the windows installer doing(this requires windows installer messages parsing and I don't know how hard it is to implement, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default....r_messages.asp)
  11. Norton AV has the worst detection ever: It sucks so much that even a 1 byte change in an executable can avoid norton detection. Kasperksy instead doesn't rely on stupid string matches like norton does in fact it has the best detection ever (99.97%). Also kaspersky uses rootkit technology to prevent viruses/worms from disabling the scan making it the best AV ever. Kaspersky also doesn't rescan the files its checksum hasn't changed (checksums are stored in alternate NTFS streams) making Kaspersky the fastest AV ever.
  12. Why don't you compress the installer with 7zip (like the firefox one) maybe norton can't manage to extract it so it won't detect any false positive.
  13. Yes it does everything except that it adds a "watermark" to the version info of the file (I think something like "EDITED WITH UNREGISTERED RESTUNER" in the name inside the dll version block)
  14. I was talking about the image on the website that shows the 2 different windows xp percentbar types. There's no need for a program to do that it's just a theme change.
  15. What about changing XPize style's progressbar with a smooth one? The standard one is really awful with all those pesky little blocks! Isn't there a way to edit the theme and replace it with a smooth one? BTW for those that have never seen the smooth percentbar it's the one at the right of this image: http://www.1000files.com/screenshot_13633.html . The xp's default one instead is the ugly one at the left. Let's fight the pesky little green blocks together! We will defeat them!
  16. For anybody interesting in making the 64bit resource replacing application: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default....ateresource.asp With the BeginUpdateResource, UpdateResource and EndUpdateResource APIs it should be very easy to make a resource replacer for 64bit files.
  17. Restuner should not be bought since you can't redistribute that utility... My idea was to add support for that utility inside xpize, the users then would have to download the shareware version utility and have xpize use it... so there wouldn't be anything to buy... Maybe if xpize could have an advanced setting during the install wizard to choose which utility to use to replace the resources and its syntax (that would be sprintf'ed during the process) it would be perfect
  18. Right now I can't since I would need to use 64bit xp to debug the program unfortunately I can't format until pinnacle and asrock release 64bit drivers for my s.ata2 controller and tv card
  19. It's using reshacker that unfortunately supports only 32bit resources... I would make the application myself if only I was running xp 64bit... unfortunately I miss some important 64bit drivers for my hardware so i'm waiting for them to be released before installing 64bit xp.
  20. I've searched google but unfortunately I managed to find only that one There are some windows apis to insert, replace and remove stuff from resources so technically any vc++ developer should be able to make a 64bit resource replacer... but strangely it looks like nobody has made freeware command-line utilities for that
  21. This is why I said that xpize should just detect and use it: it will be up to the user to install the shareware version from the website...
  22. No i don't think so xp 64bit should just be a 64bit recompile of windows 2003 so the resources shouldn't have changed location.
  23. I've found out a nice command-line resource editor called restuner console. If only xpize could detect if that program is installed and use it to apply resource patches to 64bit xp it would be great...
  24. Are you sure that windows update works only with wga integrated that way?
  25. What do you mean 'unrelated'?? Both of these WGA updates are listed by Windows Update as 'critical'. I understand that WGA Notifications isn't "required" for Windows Update to function, but eventually, Microsoft will force you to install it on your computer. I have already been able to integrate Microsoft Update. Download the MUWEB CAB file from Microsoft. It contains the DLL file required for Microsoft Update. For integration into Windows, you must also import a datastore.ebd file. This has been placed in the attached SFX file.For more information, see here. I did already manage to find out that I needed to register the muweb_site activex however that is not enough since I have still to go through microsoft update website to have automatic updates point at that website instead of windows update http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdat...lt.aspx?muopt=6 automatically configures microsoft update without welcome screens: it seems that it's invoking UpdateClient() method on the activex microsoftupdatewebcontrol object to configure everything however I still haven't managed to make a script that does the same job yet
