  1. In your XP64 Hotfix page in the WMP11 section you refer to steps 3 and 9, but over here in the guide you haven't numbered any steps - so which/where are steps 3 and 9? Particularly where is step 9 in the sequence. I can't tell if for a WMP11 silent install I should copy the WMP11 folder into \XP64\ before or after I run the process. . Thanks.
  2. Thanks 5eraph. By "integrated" I mean if you use a bone-stock unaltered (SP1 or SP2) install media you end up with (none/which) .NET installed. I wasn't asking about R2. The info doesn't hurt but W2k3x64(R2) doesn't seem to be in locked-step with XP64 like W2k3x64(R1) seems to be so I didn't even think about R2 as a mirror (so to speak) of XP64. I would expect W2k3x64(R1) and XP64 to be the same in regard to .NET, but, while the lack of .NET in W2k3x64(R1) is mentioned in several places, none seem to mention what goes on with .NET and XP64. Here is an example. https://blogs
  3. Also an XP64 question. I've looked online and found no definite answer. Someone in the knowledge pool here probably knows this off the top of their head. Am I correct that XP64 SP1 and SP2 are like W2k3x64 and come as original with no .NET integrated in the OS? Thanks in advance.
  4. Thank you for getting right back. It still doesn't make sense that 7 (the middle one) is different from 6 & 8 but I'll take your word for it. I would have expected to see 6 & 7 (older set) different from 8 -or- 7 & 8 (newer set) different from 6, not the middle one different. I've been rearranging your XP64 package into prebuilt drop-in Modules for some of the optional configurations. In the course of doing that I manually assemble a file set and directory structure for each option. I noticed the difference when building the three IE Modules.
  5. Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I haven't been able to find a reason. Why is 940-WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB2900986-x64-ENU.exe in \Hotfix for IE6 and IE8 but in \XP64\RunOnce for IE7? (This is all in the "XP x64 hotfix lists" page.)
  6. Back to what Tommy meant by HD, I'm not much of a fan of HD-TV. Before it all the designated "hot chicks" (weather girls, leading roles in movies/TV and such) WERE hot. Now you can see so well that you can see their makeup -and- the blemishes underneath it. Some things are better left unseen. I compensate by not wearing my glasses when I watch TV. The gals are cuter that way. .
  7. A few years ago the "hot word" was "Turbo". As for HD in some cases it actually means "Heavy Duty" so it makes sense for things like Oxi-Clean. Bacon, not so much. Hope I never need "HD" toothpaste.
  8. No worries. - Peace. FYI, I don't do it anymore but I launched my first website and forum back in the 90's. I have done a Board Software transition and they are NOT fun. Now I see your point about the editor being the root of the problem. - It annoys me too. - Rather surprised a modern forum software has an editor that can't be changed or customized in the Admin interface. I see many today that can do it right in the user interface. Regardless the cause, I think the poor choice will obsolete the MFSN Forum as a "Go To" place for such projects. - Kurt_Aust's decision to move his
  9. Then why are you WHINING about what I wrote? As was OBVIOUS, I understand the issue. - I expressed an opinion about it - AND I offered suggestions to work around it - primarily to Kurt_Aust. You OTOH seem to be just whining.
  10. This is a shame. And IMHO horribly short sighted of MSFN's "powers that be". - In a way of thinking MSFN has deliberately "obsoleted itself" for the very thing that made them unique and valuable. MANY Member Contributed Projects here on MSFN -RELY- (or did) on the ability to keep the first post updated and current. If that is no longer possible here then MSFN content will largely be dated and obsolete projects and MSFN will soon no longer be such a valuable asset. MSFN staff should consider creating a limited Admin type of account that allows the authors of such projects to edit (ju
  11. @ Kurt_Aust The file ATICCC.ins seems to be corrupt/broken (or -something-). The ATICCC.ins file contained in your WinXP-SP4 torrent shows up in the downloading files list while the torrent is running but it says "0 bytes". When the torrent completes the file is not present in the download at all. The ATICCC.ins contained in "Files_WinXP-SP4_A_Feb16.7z" downloads and shows up but it is 0 bytes and has a CRC32 of "00000000". I don't know what that file is/does, if it's needed at all or if 0 bytes is correct, but at the very least you should know it's not getting to people
  12. SP4 Update and link fixes needed. x SP4 v3.1a has been obsolete since at least April 2016, if not before. The current (and supposedly last) version is 3.1b. Your link to the Google Drive is dead. The link in Ryan's page to the Google Drive works but once there the DL's didn't work for me. (They start downloading but never finish. - Weird.) The only way I found that worked for me to get SP4 v3.1b is to use the magnet link in Ryan's page. [Edit] I finally got the Google Drive to work from Ryan's page. After about 750Mb I had to restart it repeatedly (every 25-50 Mb or so)
  13. Hi Kurt FYI: MediaFire is reporting Hotfix_2000sp5_B_Feb16.7z as a "dangerous file" and won't allow downloading it. Additionally your torrent link is not working. Just thought you should know. .
  14. . Please define "latest version" - because such things are subject to change with time. (By date) When you wrote that the "latest" was version 7-something. Currently your link on page 1 of this thread goes to version 8-something. Which are confirmed to work in W2k? . Thanks. .
  15. Anomaly? Problem? Bug? . I don't have the skills (or time) to figure out what happened, just reporting something I saw during an install on actual hardware. Build was W2k Advanced Server without any non-MS add-ons beyond 3Ware RAID drivers. [is for a temp file server to store 3TB of data on while I rebuild the 'real' one.] I wasn't paying THAT much attention (fully automated install) but at one point I looked up and saw errors in a dos-box window. For each of the following: NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-x86.exe NDP1.1sp1-KB971108-x86.exe NDP1.1sp1-KB2742597-X86.exe It said something to the effect that th
