  1. Where can we get the updated 5.1 build 19? I'm planning on doing a new install this afternoon.
  2. Yeah these are all the hotfixes that showed up in windows update, but it was after installing ie6, which was the first thing I did once I brought up the os. I'm going to probably setup another machine this weekend, and I'll pay a little more attention about the process.
  3. Many thanks for your effort. Last weekend I re-installed Win2k on my test machine. I know you are already addressing issues like the August hotfixes. But these are some of the windows updates I needed to install after the OS installation. Microsoft .Net framework 1.1 Microsoft .Net framework 1.1 Hotfix (KB886903) Microsoft Data Access Components KB870669 Security Update for Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (KB833989) Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.8 NTFS fix KB820888 windows shell hotfix KB839645 Bits 2.0 + Winhttp 5.1 update KB842773 Kernel vulnerability KB890859 internet explorer update KB896727 Outlook express vulnerability KB897715 Windows Installer 3.1 KB8893803 Windows Media Player 9 Hotfix KB885492 Windows Media Player Hotfix Q828026 Windows Media Player 9 I was hoping you might be able to include the .net framework as well as Media Player 9 in the 5.1 update. Once again, many thanks, my test system is running great.
  4. As some of us have been eager for the new version, I personally found it tiresome to manually download all the hotfixes. I wrote a little perl script that automates the process for me, that I figured I could share. You have to do a little tweaking of the hotfix file. It basically takes lines in the format of ADD SVC_POS\some_file http:\\some_file_download checksum and proceeds to download the hotfixes and setup the folders for xpcreate I effectively took the hotfix list from http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=22266 and modified some of the lines to keep everything in the above format. Anyways, here's a zip. feel free to modify the perl script or hotfix list. - Required files: perl - http://www.activestate.com/ wget - http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/ Enjoy, NotVeryNice 2k.rar
  5. Using the win2k hotlists from this thread http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=22266 I get a file conflict error with one of the ie6 updates. Basically during the merging hotfixes stage, it prompts me to overwrite a file. I'll try and dig up the log again, but basically it is because at some point in the process the full name of the file gets "shortened" to something like ie6~1.exe. I beleive these are the offending files that end being truncated and ultimately conflicting in some way SVC-POS\IE6.0sp1-KB823353-x86-ENU.exe SVC-HF2\IE6.0sp1-KB833989-x86-ENU.exe SVC-HF2\IE6.0sp1-KB867801-x86-ENU.exe One thought I had to fixing the problem is renaming the beginning characters of the offending file...Would that work? I'm trying changing the files to this: SVC-HF2\IE6.1sp1-KB833989-x86-ENU.exe SVC-HF2\IE6.2sp1-KB867801-x86-ENU.exe Anyone have any ideas? NotVeryNice
