  1. So I tried the procedure but it doesn't seem to be doing anything: Get the old good pe_patch.exe. Rename mpam-fe.exe to TEMP.EXE Use PE_PATCH to change "Sub-System Version" from 5.2 to 5.1 Use the reliable n7epsilon's PEChecksum.exe v. 1.4 to correct the PE Checksum. (or ModifyPE) This is the command-line to use in a CMD Box: PEChecksum -c TEMP.EXE Rename TEMP.EXE to mpam-fe.exe and run it. I couldn't find PEChecksum, the file is no longer available, but ModifyPE works in XP. I changed Sub-System Version from 6.0 to 5.1 then clicked Save. then I ran: @echo off cd /D "%~dp0" modifype.exe TEMP.EXE -c pause Now, running the file, I don't see the "not a valid Win32 application" error, but nothing at all seems to happen. Thoughts?
  2. Beware... Do NOT install KBs 4019276 and 4459091 or you will completely break Microsoft Office encryption and who knows what else. That being said, these bring TLS 1.1 and 1.2 support to XP, but you can get them with other browsers like Firefox/New Moon anyways so it's the lesser of two evils for me
  3. Alright, everyone, I did a fresh install and can confirm MSO 2010 works perfectly without those two problematic updates! Hopefully it's helpful if others in the future are having issues with MSO. 1. Replace MSO.DLL with MSO.DLL from KB 4092483 2. Do NOT install KBs 4019276 and 4459091 or you will completely break Microsoft Office encryption and who knows what else. That being said, these bring TLS 1.1 and 1.2 support to XP, but you can get them with other browsers like Firefox/New Moon anyways so it's the lesser of two evils for me Now... back to trying to figure out how to get MSE definitions to install...
  4. Sorry, had to, it's not secure! There's login and stuff on some of those pages, and you get dinged big time in security tests and audits! Even W2K can do TLS 1.2 HTTPS so I saw no reason to allow HTTPs, and recently, < TLS 1.2, either. Even Lynx can do TLS 1.2. Yeah, SNI is a thing but it's been supported since IE6, so probably not a big concern these days. Correction: IE7 on Vista, apparently...
  5. Some sites are TLS 1.2 only. I changed mine to no longer accept TLS 1 and 1.1 just last week.
  6. I mean most sites which are TLS 1.2 only have CSS that IE8 can't render properly. Only older sites will work "fine" in IE8. These updates in question though seem to be the ones that break MSO so it's kind of a catch22...
  7. Didn't even know that was possible, I'd heard of that for Vista but not XP! Firefox 52.9 ESR has TLS 1.2 support and New Moon even has TLS 1.3 support, so I don't think it's much of an issue. IE9 is really the oldest usable IE these days... IE8 is just too old now to work well at all, so no TLS 1.1/1.2 is probably fine, since it can't render those sites properly anyways. It's kind odd Microsoft makes XP users choose between Office encryption or better TLS... can't have your cake and eat it, too, I guess! But XP isn't usable for me without Office so that's the choice I'm making
  8. Good news! 4019276 and 4459091 are the ONLY problematic updates for MSO! @win32 @Dave-H @daniel_k @Dylan Cruz Any cause for concern here? I think if we were all to uninstall these from production, MSO should suddenly start working again - in theory - it might be uninstalling won't undo the damage, and you'll need to not install these in the first place. What's odd is most updates show up as "Security update for WIndows XP..." and these both are just "Update for Windows XP..." - they must have done some major damage! I tested installing both of these updates, and that broke things, but surprisingly uninstalling the two updates did NOT fix things. Looks like the only option once you've installed is to nuke and start over, which seems bizarre. Uninstalling the updates doesn't seem to undo the damage, sadly. I'm blacklisting these updates in my notes so I don't install them accidentally!
  9. Just wanted to throw this in here - some POS updates break XP. In one case of interest, Microsoft Office. Avoid these POS updates! See:
  10. So far: windowsxp-kb4019276-x86-embedded-enu is confirmed problematic. windowsxp-kb4459091-x86-embedded-enu is also problematic. Looks like these are both updates for TLS... interesting...
  11. @daniel_k @Dave-H windowsxp-kb4019276-x86-embedded-enu is confirmed problematic. I was doing them one by one once I narrowed it down sufficiently. There may be others; I will try all of part 1 without that one. UPDATE: looks like there are others, still failed when I did them all. Narrowing down again Another update between 4089082 and 4459091 is also problematic.
  12. I can confirm the issue is in List 1, let me try to narrow it down further.
  13. @daniel_k GOOD NEWS, all! I can confirm just with SP4, encryption DOES WORK! This means I can provide a full list of all updates that were installed since then, and testing them is actually quite feasible: Directory of J:\ISOs\NT 5.1 (XP)\XP Updates Part 1 08/07/2020 11:30 AM

  14. Sad but true! XP to me is useless without fully functioning Office though, so I'll take encryption over a few POS updates any day. Thanks for verifying!!! Oh boy! I did something similar with slipstreaming Vista a while back in a different manner than I did recently. However, I didn't do one by one, that would have taken forever. I did them in batches and then tested to see if it would work. It was more involved because it involved creating an ISO each time and seeing if installation could start or if it failed. This should be a bit easier than that. I'm going to try a base SP4 install right now and see if that works or not. If not, it's a POS update between SP3 and the cutoff for SP4 most likely. Unfortunately, I don't have a full list of updates, and I don't have the updates themselves which are included in SP4. I don't think I can selectively uninstall them from Control Panel since it's a SP, either. I did find this 1.9 GB of purportedly all XP updates, ever: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kuB4Rj7bIBQ5LljPUe34hPP_C0Dled76/view Not sure where the SP3 cutoff is. Anyone got ideas or want to help tackle this? Would be great to fix this bug... thanks, Microsoft!!
  15. Does this matter though if SSL2/3 are disabled? What would be the 64-bit reg script? Thanks!
