Putting Windows Imaging Component WMI on windows 2000. I am trying to install dot net 4 onto 2k. i got errors about proceedures in ntdll and advapi32 (if you get further) if i run setup, so i decided to run the MSI and it wants WIC. so i had to find a way to get it on. yes yours is good for the error "could not find the update.inf file needed to update your system". before you click OK, look in each of your drives for a new zany long hex folder name with an "update" subfolder. copy that stuff elsewhere (the one file in use is not necessary). then after the above modification you got the error "the version of windows you have installed does not match the update you are trying to install" i used openedfilesview, which told me where the log file is, c:\winnt\WIC.log. and gives me: time: CheckSystem: Minor Version mismatch:STATUS_NT_VERSION_MISMATCH, time: DoInstallation: CheckSystem Failed: 0xf021. this text appears in the exe. hmm. needs cracking. so for my second cracked program, (unfortunately i dont know anymore how to save in ollydbg, as i hardly do it, all the instructions on the net have a convient "Right click> save modifications> all modifications" but for me what is remotely like it is right click on each your modified lines, edit, then choose copy to executable, but then once i save its corrupt... v2.01alpha2) so i will tell you the steps to crack it and you can save it if you can, or just run it. step 1 search for lines 102ec81, 102ecbd and 102ecc1 (choose, right click, edit, fill these with nops, especailly the first) now it will give an error lines: time: DoInstallation: CheckSystem Failed: 0xf001, time: Setup cannot update your Windows 2000 files because the language installed on your system is different from the update language. step2 search for line 105450f and right click, assemble, and change JE to JMP and it will run (you will need to shift click the run button). enjoy. charlie
