  1. Does anyone using PM 28 have trouble with this extension not working? Back to Close: http://legacycollector.org/firefox-addons/9793/back-to-close-1.11.1-signed.1-signed.xpi
  2. Good luck with the typhoon, Roytam1. I hope everyone stays safe.
  3. Netflix isn't working on my New Moon 28.1.0a1. However, it is working on an old installation of New Moon 27.7.0a2. Anyone else having issues with Netflix?
  4. Is anyone with New Moon able to watch movie previews on IMDB? (or is it just me) What plugin is being used?
  5. I'm uncertain what the differences are between Feodor2 and Roytam1 releases, except that Roytam1 releases are based on Feodor2 patches. Roytam1, what do you add or take away? I'm currently using New Moon 27.7.0a2. Once I download the 7z archive, do I overwrite the files in the existing new moon "palemoon" folder, or do I have to start from scratch and add all the extensions and plugins and customizations? Also, just to be sure, there is a regular, an SSE, and a no-SSE to pick from. Regular also supports SSE2 or above?

    What Not To Remove For Some Programs

    Updated to post #150 on page 8 Here you have a page that you can search in hopes of finding out why your application is not functioning correctly. It may be that you have removed a component with nLite, that is required for your application. The contents below is loosely organized, and sometimes it's structure is the following: 1: name of application 2: what not to remove 3: problem resulting from removing items in line 2 x: - comment updating the original information Credits to RaveRod and Bold Fortune (posts that follow) -------------------------- Dependency page in the services MMC snap-in was showing only the components actually present in the system, while the components cut out by nLite weren't shown Peer2Mail 'MSMail and MAPI' component, plus others HFNetChk Workstation Service Incredimail mapi32.dll Visual Studio 6 16 bit support cannot install UltraISO wmidx.dll, wmasf.dll ActiveSync for Pocket PC Version 4.x for Windows Mobile 5 For Windows 2000 mapi32.dll (from outlook express), utildll.dll Windows Installer won't run and there was an error message (A DLL is required...).

VCom Systemsuite 5 Depends On: System File Protection Reasons: If the afore mentioned service is not installed, or is trimmed out, upon installing that program, it asks you to reboot, and somewhere in the process it corrupts the winlogon.exe file What components are needed for normal functioning of ADSL connection and ADSL modems? - I have an ADSL connection and I remove all network and tcp/ip services and components. The only issue is that if I remove DHCP Client, an icon on taskbar is showing trying to search a network. I fix this configuring some IP on TCP/IP protocol on Local Area Connection. I use 192.168.254.254 for IP, Gateway defaullt and first DNS Server. But any IP will work. So you don´t need any component that nLite can remove for now. Can someone tell me what not to remove for having suport for running java scripts right after windows is installed? - EXCLAM.GI_ (exclam.gif) If you remove this file pre-installation The backgroun transfer service, numerous shortcuts and the my "folder name" collection of folders will fail to be created. just a word of caution about disabling the start menu MRU file list: i just caused a 2 day headache for the developer of FreePCB (circut board design s/w) because i disabled the startmenu MRU list. he changed his his code to make it work with it disabled however (available later tonight or tomorrow). the problem was 'exceptions' when trying to open or save a document. since i also removed dr. watson, it only made things that much more difficult for the poor fella smile.gif i won't be removing either in future builds. I just wanted to add, renaming 'Program Files' might cause a slight inconvienience to those that use tools such as system (file) cleaners. For instance, if you use CCleaner - http://www.ccleaner.com/ or any other utility which has a database outlining the 'program' directory, it might not find the custom naming scheme if you do so. An example, CCleaner uses '%ProgramFiles%' in it's .ini file. So the app wouldn't find your custom location and some features in CCleaner wouldn't work. A few software that require or work better if hhctrl.ocx is present in C:\WINDOWS\system32: TUGzip FuturixImager And the software for Terratec's souncards control panels. Even Explorer and many other worked smoother with hhctrl.ocx Do not remove npptools.dll (I believe it's part of Network Monitor) if you use WinPcap for any reason (I use it for wc3banlist). Is npptools.dll the only needed component ? - Last time I tried to use nmap, it failed though I restored npptools. - Anyway, "Network Monitor" seems to be the only component that could cause WinPcap/nmap/Ethereal not to work. (gonna check this soon) - Yeah for me npptools is the only dll needed. I guess WinPcap and wc3banlist provided the rest of what was needed. Don't remove the SamSS (Security Accounts Manager) if u're going to use the IIS Admin service (Visual Studio 2005, vs2005, vs 2005) the service fails to start therefore iis will not function.. this could even go under the compatibility IIS section Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software Do not remove or disable IPSEC and/or NLA services or you will experience issues with you WLAN icon for Microsoft Office Update on Office 2003 and probably other versions do not disable "Keep code pages of removed languages" or you will experience issues when trying to install some updates. In my case, it appears that neither enabling "Clean MUI Languages support entries" nor removing Languages themselves makes any difference when using OfficeUpdate or MicrosoftUpdate. iTunes 6.0.4.2 + Winamp 5.24 + NTI CD Maker 6.5+ Dependency: Wmasf.dll + Wmidx.dll If you remove Windows Media Player 8 (but leave Windows Media Player Classic 6.4) with nLite from Windows XP these programs will not function correctly or will display missing file errors when opening because they require the following files that are removed: Wmasf.dll + Wmidx.dll. If you add these files back into the System 32 folder from an non Nlited XP install these programs will function correctly with no errors. Update: The same applies to iTunes 7, NTI CD Maker 7, and Winamp 5+! Dr Watson: Program dependent on dbgeng.dll file and won't run without it. Solution: Add dbgeng.dll from a non nLited XP to Windows System 32 folder. Microsoft Internet Explorer 7: Program dependent on Windows Update Manager and won't install without it. Microsoft Outlook 97, 2000, XP, 2003: Program dependent on Outlook Express and won't work without it. Microsoft Outlook 2007 isn't dependent on Outlook Express and will work without it. You can Use Thunderbird or other 3rd party software instead as it isn't dependent on Outlook/Outlook Express. Windows Defender (a.k.a. Microsoft Antispyware): Program dependent on Windows Update and won't install or if you get it to install won't be able to update without it. It was originally designed by GIANT AntiSpyware which was bought out by M$ and was rebranded as Microsoft Antispyware with Beta 1 and Windows Defender with Beta 2, and now is being integrated as a M$ service dependent on M$ update. Possible Solution: Sunbelt Software which was Giant's partner has released CounterSpy based on GIANT Antispyware, which I have tested and it works well. From what I have read it's also a well regarded product! Windows Media Player 11: Program dependent on Imapi CD Burning to burn CD's. WMP can still rip music CD's, but because it's dependent on the Imapi CD Burning service; it can't burn music CD's. Use iTunes, Winamp or other 3rd party software instead to burn CD's. Yahoo Music/Radio + Yahoo Jukebox (formerly MusicMatch Jukebox): Are dependent on Windows Media Player 8. Yahoo Jukebox will tell you it can't install because of this problem, but Yahoo Radio will try to work but fail without any specific error. If you install WMP 8 or higher then these apps should work. I installed WMP 11 and then both apps worked fine. If you take off the OOBE component, you will not be able to change the Win XP key (product ID) using blue list keychanger or magical jellybean keyfinder. Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition requires the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) FreeDownloadManager seems to be dependant on DCOM Laucnher. - So does Microsoft's .NET Framework 3.0 According to what happened with me the file ODBCCP32.DLL is required to run media monkey, so keep it. X-teq X-Setup requires Visual Basic i found that to connect to my nt4domain i need "net logon" what not to remove for hamachi ? (www.hamachi.cc) - i think its dhcp client - I can confirm Hamachi requires DHCP Service - Hamachi works without DHCP. Just start it and look what IP is written in the Program Window of Hamachi. Then go to the properties of your "Hamachi" Lan-Connection and enter this IP in "TCP/IP" Protocol. Then restart and it should work... I felt like playing Mafia the other day (on of the greatest games btw) and realized that the intro was missing at the beginning and the menu video was all messed up. It was filled various colors and patterns. It didn't look nice at all. Anyway, turns out that Mafia needs the "Intel Indeo codec" to be able to run Bink Player so you might wanna keep that in mind anytime a game intro or menu graphics doesn't behave the way you wants. Besides, it doesn't impact the overall size of your UA Installation anyway so the choice should be obvious, unless gaming is completely out of the question. Quicken requires DCOM... for what I can't remember. Korean language support is needed for KMPlayer. If you remove it, the program doesn't launch. It doesn't even show an error message. You click the exe and nothing happens. Anyone using Grisoft's AVG plus Firewall need to keep Dial-up and VPN Support otherwise the Firewall fails to start with the following error: The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion. (1075) Realtek HD Audio for onboard 7.1 setups requires hhctrl.ocx, to access it in the control panel. Without access to this panel, there is no way to enable 'Stereo Mix', which lets you record what you hear. Major problem for screen recording software like FRAPS, but easily fixed by copying the file over to your system32 dir, or adding it to keepfiles in nLite. UltimateDefrag requires odbcbcp.dll (part of MDAC) Firetune requires msvbvm60.dll. CCleaner requires msvbvm60.dll (from Visual Basic 6 Runtime) in-order to run The drivers for HP printers require Microsoft Color Management (ICM) to fully install. Don't remove "Printer Support" nor "Microsoft Color Management (ICM)" in the Hardware Support section section if you want to run the Nvidia Display Optimization Wizard (nvcolor.exe). One of those things that makes it tricky but also fun to use nLite. I just managed to confirm what was posted by Legolash2o about not being able to install .Net Framework if the "Net Logon Service" is removed. This service will probably be either excluded from nLite's remove list or at least be shown in red. MDAC (in component) is required for the installer of Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts. AutoImage needs the Windows Management Instrumentation service Hellgate London (game) requires odbcbcp.dll . It's part of MDAC, but you need to restore only this particular file (to system32 folder). PDANet: Modem Component is needed. If Modem is deleted, PDANet will not install. I found out that for installing printer drivers on XP you absolutely have to have srclient.dll, even if you have disabled/nlited system restore. Don't know if recent Nlite builds keep it (since I've seen the dll mentioned many times on this board, but nothing speciffic about this, only together with framedyn.dll). Or maybe I had deleted it manually, but in any case, no printer driver would install without it present. To function properly SuRun needs the Secondary Logon service. The driver component "Cameras and Camcorders" contains drivers to mount USB digicams as normal drives for many models of modern digicams, from among others Canon. Canon does not supply drivers for these cameras neither on the CD that comes with the camera nor on their support website - they rely -100%- on the driver included in this file that is shipped default with Win 2K/XP. Comodo Firewall needs Security Center or it will give an error at startup (but still run) The latest version(s) of iTunes (7.6) requires the following files (Windows\System32): sccbase.dll sccsccp.dll slbcsp.dll slbiop.dll and also: wmasf.dll wmidx.dll Thanks to the MSFN user from this thread: http://www.msfn.org/board/iTunes-won-t-sta...520#entry732520 Another user in the same thread says that newer versions of iTunes require the SmartCard service. - Recent versions of iTunes now crash if Smart Card support is removed. Toshiba Power Saver/LG Power Management/Dell Power Management (and most probably other power management tools for various laptops) UPS Service. - If you messed up like me and removed this service aswell you can manually instal it even after XP is installed, you are going to need an XP disc wich has it on though: http://www.lazybit.com/index.php/2007/12/1..._service?blog=2 Needed to do this after I found out my HP printer drivers wouldn't install because that was missing... - Huh? That is the Smart Card Service, not the UPS service. By the way, the Smart Card service is NOT needed for HP Software: just use these reg-files instead. (post #134) sisoft sandra 2008 requires SNMP service Program : Windows Search File : WindowsSearch-KB940157-Srv2K3_XP-x64-enu.exe Install will not start if Terminal services is removed with nlite (v1.4.5.5) apparently. Program asks for something like "Please make sure Terminal services is started before installation". Tested on real install, not vmware. update: i did a reinstall same settings, but this time around kept Terminal Services. Installation went flawless, so that confirms it imho. DO NOT remove sync manager or else... no sony ericsson pc suite! With regard to itunes, I have found a further dependency though I'm not sure of its nature - I uninstalled internet explorer using xplite on xp (obviously) and.... itunes won't open - except as 'itunes.exe' in task manager. Then without even rebooting, an xplite reinstall of IE allowed itunes to open fine. (obviously had to end task in task manager in between). My original install is from an nlite created sp2 cd - perhaps this further complicates things? (also on a dual boot imac - 2.0ghz 1gbram - although same effect on an old dell) MUI isn't worth it. It is a poor implementation in that not everything gets translated when switching languages. So if you want a different language, just use a different language version of Windows. According to Staknhalo'Software Quality Management' is needed for Media Center functionality and also 'Simple Network Management Protocol needed For CS3 Removed : Shell Media Handler Result : Now can't view File Versions of things, i didnt think of that when selecting it ( was thinking of mp3 tags etc), had forgot. I posted a workaround for the IE removal and Steam problem here. (http://www.msfn.org/board/Solution-Steam-File-Download-security-w-t121637.html) Devil May Cry 4 = needs wmplayer codecs. At least Wmvcore.dll, i will perhaps do a new install to check this. btw: I had removed wmplayer and shell media handler and everything codecs from install, even wmplayer compability with nlite 1.4.8, but wmplayer 11 would still install, and game runs fine. Wmplayer even plays files. Im sure some parts of it is broken, but nothing that is visibile per usage so far. edit: Needs windows media format 11 runtime. - Did a clean real install of windows, had removed wmp and wmp compability but kept "acm core codecs", so i know it isnt that. Game wouldnt start so installed wmfdist.exe , "Windows Media Format 11 Runtime" . So game needs codecs basically. It worked without wmp11 player installed. Windows Search 4.0 vmware: deleted imapi service with imapi 2.0 being installed, error showing up in event viewer The protocol handler Search.Mapi2Handler.1 cannot be loaded. Error description: Class not registered Searching still seems to work tho. i've only removed partially imapi files (1.0 files, not 2.0) NT BackUp Needs Indexing Service and Windows Management Instrumentation Maybe something else. - NT Backup does NOT need indexing service on my os, nor does it need WMI running at least. In fact, NT Backup will quite happily run even if you relocate it, meaning you can have it run almost as if it was a portable program (it isnt tho because of registry writes etc). So please specify what your O.S. is.. Most apps need WMI nowadays anyway, so i wouldnt bother with that. At some point one has to realize that if you remove that kind of service you are going to lose a ton of compability with software. On the other hand it is possible to slim down what nt backup actually uses. You can remove removable storage f.ex and it will still work. Actually i dont need wmi either for it to run now that i think of it. - Maybe depends on the way you work with. Only leave it there without a problem, have you tried manual/advanced backup? If i remove indexing services, it stops when the back up starts. OS is Win XP Pro SP3 plus hotfixes until sept. To figure out i remove all at services but keep restoring until it works, on each component, 1 install, think the wasted time...

    Hashes in Security Catalogs

    Maybe what shows in the security catalogs, are the encrypted versions of the SHA1 hashes? They may be encrypted with a public key, and only MS would have the private key. I don't know, I'm just taking guesses.
  8. When I take the hash of a file, and compare it with the hash in the Security Catalog, it doesn't match up. Maybe the hash listed in the catalog is not of the whole file, just important parts of the file? If so, is there a tool that will calculate the hash in the Microsoft way? I could use makecat, but it is a pain having to make a text file before getting the hash. I haven't tried it yet, so neither do I know if it will work. Also, I can see a list of hashes in the cat file, but I don't know the corresponding filenames. Is there a cat file viewer that lists the filenames that correspond with the hashes?

    Maybe this: http://pev.sourceforge.net/doc/manual/en_us/ch05s03.html Not sure what a "section" would be.

    Hashes in Security Catalogs

    http://www.keir.net/hash.html I took the hash of shell32.dll.mui, that I pulled from a zh-tw language pack File Version: 6.1.7601.17514 (win7sp1_rtm.101119-1850) Modified: Saturday, November 20, 2010, 6:21:18 AM MD5: 20AA0D4DB61152CBC4D9A96964A98A48 SHA1: 33217BEE852DAE99DD89CC62554F74EBAE8A960C CRC32: 723E04A0 I searched for the SHA1 within all the files in the lp.cab. No result. I opened one cat file at random, then copied one of the hashes from it, and searched again in lp.cab for this hash string: result is the cat file from which I copied the hash. Maybe they don't include the PE headers in the hash calculation?

    Hashes in Security Catalogs

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Hash_Algorithm The hashes in the Security Catalog, are SHA1 in length

    Hashes in Security Catalogs

    Hopefully with the last edit, what I was trying to say makes sense!
  13. mraeryceos

    Hashes in Security Catalogs

    I calculated SHA-1, using a program called Hash. I searched for the this hash inside the cat files, using a program that searches within files, but can't find it. If I search with this program for a hash I know is in one of the cat files, I can find it
  14. The goal for me, was to have less use of system resources. So my thinking, was that in not having something installed, there would be less chance that unwanted processes/actions would run in the background. For example, installing a component, might register an additional service, using memory and cpu cycles. If I don't need that service, why install? Just copy the files over, in case some app had a dependency on a particular file the component has. This is my thinking, but I don't know to what extent it is correct.
  15. Is there a way to extract component cab files into a directory structure (as they would sit in the windows directory, but in a separate folder), that would make it easy to just copy-paste the files of a component into the windows directory? It would make it easy to experiment if Windows needs the registry entries for certain files, or if it will work with the files just placed into system32 and so on. For example, I can get by without installing the component "security base". Without the files manually copied from security base into the windows directory, I can't use regedit to merge a reg file. With the files in place, but not installed, I can. Come to think of it, I don't know if "security base" is a win7 component. I am working with Windows Embedded Standard 7: I just use it at home for my own system. It was my choice to use it as an alternative to 7customizer, rt7lite, etc.
  16. expand -r component.cab /switch Where switch means, don't dump the files all in the same folder. Nest them where they would go. See attached 32 bit example.

    cd\ cacls "system volume information" /t /g everyone:f rd /s /q "system volume information" I then create dummy file "system volume information" and modify the ACE to be: deny full control to nt service\trustedinstaller deny full control to system I set {computer}\administrator as owner Result: "system volume information" folder gets recreated anyway! (upon restarting the system, for example) How is this possible?
  19. Ok, you can attach *.zip files, but not *.log files. Makes more sense to attach all the logs anyway. logs.zip
  20. On Windows 7, the flash drive was auto-formatted with FBinst. [/] align [/] copy BPB, fat32. The flash drive worked ok. After using it a few times, I went to add another OS and it gave the MBR error message. Trying to upload the log files: Error You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file I reduced it to 93KB, but still no... .

    Editing UEFI nvram

    Does anyone know where to get an EFI program that will manage the boot-loaders-list in nvram? I have a macbookpro2,1, and I've put a new blank hard drive in it, and I don't have os x. I have XP running. Plop boot manager is the only way to boot USB, but it does not have keyboard drivers, so no luck getting a keyboard for using menus on any boot menu. I am out of optical media for the moment. Parted Magic does not have efibootmgr. Also can't use Shell2, which has another command, because the mac's efi is 32 bit. I have heard of nvrboot.efi, but I haven't found it anywhere (supposedly in XP 64 bit and Server 2003, but I couldn't find the file on either). Any other suggestions?

    Editing UEFI nvram

    Thanks Tripredacus. The Macbook Pro I have, has a 32 bit EFI, believe it or not. http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/specs/macbook-pro-core-2-duo-2.33-17-specs.html
  23. I now have an entry in the context menu to launch xplorer2, which I configured to only have the file panel (no folder tree, etc). Thanks for the help. I don't think there is an MS fix.
  24. In Windows XP, I have three options within the context menu of a Windows Explorer folder: <b>Open</b>, Open, and Explore. <b>Open</b> opens in the current window Open opens a new window without the navigation pane (aka folder tree) Explore opens a new window with the navigation pane I think it has to do with this: [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\explore] "BrowserFlags"=dword:00000022 "ExplorerFlags"=dword:00000021 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\explore\command] @="%SystemRoot%\\Explorer.exe /e,/idlist,%I,%L" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\open] "BrowserFlags"=dword:00000010 "ExplorerFlags"=dword:00000012 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\open\command] @="%SystemRoot%\\Explorer.exe /idlist,%I,%L" ---> How do you do this in Windows 7?
