  1. http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/quebeccomponentsforum/thread/48a532e3-a061-4e42-829a-a17574874bec To work around this issue, create a string entry (REG_SZ) with the name Version and the value "" under the subkey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer
  2. Probably, but you'd have to test that for yourself. I haven't gotten any popups like this except when I run steam.
  3. Yes. By doing that your wallpapers will be copied to the windows folder. That should do it.
  4. Just take all your wallpapers and put them in $OEM$/$$/ , where $OEM$ is a folder on the root of the CDROM.
  5. Go on craigslist.com and look in your area for old computers being thrown away and sales of cheep DVDRW drives. If you're patient you'll find something eventually.
  6. For a definitive answer you would have to look at the technical specifications of the cards. However you can safely bet that any video card that is used for Macs has full OpenGL support up to the advertised version, and you'll also find that nVidia has better support for OpenGL since they have better support for Linux and provide cards for Macs.
  7. I posted a workaround for the IE removal and Steam problem here.
  8. If you remove IECore and run Steam, you will get a file download security warning prompt like the one: Which of course is very annoying. To fix this you need to replace xpsp2res.dll and shdoclc.dll with versions that have the dialogues removed. I have those files here for you, but they are for Windows XP Sp3. They might work for SP2 but I wouldn't risk it. First download replacer pre-release version. Now download the files. Extract them all into the same folder. Read the readme provided with the replacer utility on restoring files, just in case something goes wrong. Run replacer and follow the provided instructions. If you want to edit the files for yourself, you can use reshacker to edit shdoclc.dll and xpsp2res.dll. In both, you have to go to the dialogue section and search for the dialogue boxes corresponding to the ones that popup when Steam runs. For shdoclc.dll there's the file download dialogue box. For xpsp2res.dll there's a couple "security warning" dialogue boxes. Removing them prevents them from coming up, thus fixing the problem.
  9. You have to use useraccounts2 applet to edit the accounts, since the other one requires IECore. Create a new .reg file, open it with notepad, enter the following in it: [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}] @="User Accounts 2" InfoTip"="Starts The Windows 2000 style User Accounts dialog" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}\DefaultIcon] @="%SystemRoot%\\\\System32\\\\SHELL32.dll,111" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}\Shell] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}\Shell\Open] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}\Shell\Open\command] @="Control Userpasswords2" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D}] @="Add Userpasswords2 to Control Panel" Save it and then double click the reg file to integrate it. You should now have useraccounts2 in your control panel.
  10. It's not a good idea to install SP3 if you have removed components. However, if you just used nLite for tweaks and integrating patches then you should be fine.
  11. Have you tried disabling SFC? Go to the patches section, find SFC (system file checker) and select disable.
  12. Thanks for the tip, but that didn't work. I tried the older version of nLite (1.4.1) and with that version I get this prompt: I never get that prompt if I use nLite 1.4.5. Additionally, the 64bit version of MMC works, but the 32-bit version of MMC generates that error I mentioned in my first post. At any rate, issue resolved as far as I'm concerned.
  13. I removed Internet Explorer, including core files, from my WinXPsp2 64bit image. Because of that, I get the error "MMC will not run with a version of Internet Explorer earlier than Internet Explorer 5.5" This is only for WinXP 64bit. The 32bit version doesn't have this issue.
  14. Here's a snapshot of what I'm talking about: If I only knew the library responsible for the security dialog I could probably reshack it.
