  1. I unpacked those KB's, along with all the other Win2K Hotfixes I use, including WildBill's unofficial hotfixes. I ran a .cmd file I created to find the most recent versions of files in all the unpacked hotfixes. 1) The highest Version number was kept. 2) If the version of the two files was the same, the script would prefer files from the UpdateRollup. _) ELSE the file from the highest numbered KB was kept. I noticed something fairly interesting once I was sure the script was working. NOTE: I generated the file list with Total Commander, SubDir Branch view, sorted files by Name, and secon
  2. Well a couple issues for directx_jun2010_redist.exe under Win2K, 1) The included binaries, DXSETUP.EXE and dxdllreg.exe will not run (at all). And Compared to previous directx_mmmYYYY_redist's, the one from June is missing files: 2) BDANT.cab, BDAXP.cab, dxnt.cab It may be possible to primarily use the february redist, and add in the jun2010 cab files into a HFSLIP disk.
  3. *chuckle* Install? You don't need to install hotfixes. You slipstream them into a new CD. Or you manually unpack them. Here's how I unpack one or more Hotfixes selected in Total Commander. @ECHO OFF :BEGIN IF "%~1" == "" GOTO:EOF SET fName=%~n1 MKDIR %fName% 1>NUL 2>&1 %~1 /quiet /passive -x:%fName% SHIFT /1 GOTO:BEGIN Assigned to a button: Command: cmd /c ExtractMSHotFix.cmd Parameters: %S
  4. Couldn't "FOR /R" be used for those funky WMP hotfixes? Instead of looking in specific folders, just loop thru all available sub-Folders of the unpacked WM hotfix.
  5. Looks like it's here on Black Winged Cat's page. Scroll to about mid-page for downloads.
  6. There's at least three threads regarding this issue It's broken again in opera, following the following Email notification for new post: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...view=getnewpost resolves into: http://www.msfn.org/board/fileset-9-all-do...88-page-60.html Which just shows the top of that page of the thread. Similiarily when you click on [new posts] icon, or when you actually post to a thread -- when the thread's page opens it is at the top of that page.
  7. Strange, it appears to be fixed now... And I almost never "clear my Opera cache" This is what the [newPosts] Icon was referring to previously: http://www.msfn.org/board/hfslip_test_rele...-page-2100.html Similiar to the types of links I was getting in Email notification within the last day too. .html instead of .php
  8. Unable to read new posts now. When clicking on the newPosts icon, it just opens that Thread's Page, at the beginning of the page. Same thing when getting email notification about new posts, it just goes to the last page of the thread. No one else notice this?
  9. A couple others have done these update lists in the past, and they start out great. Then their interest wanes and they'll just up and disappear with no notice whatsoever. Basically, what I've been doing is have a Win2K VM that is patched w/ SP4 + UpdateRollup, then run hfnetcheck with the MSSecure.xml file within the VM: Grep the file for "\<Download URL\>", ie Of which I can output the last forward-slash piece to a text file, (generally process the text with with gawk in a .cmd batch script) compare vs my HF folder, and have the download links even to fetch the files in question. I m
  10. Man, whats with everyone going back to Win2K ?? IIRC FDV had left Win2K for one of the server flavours (or was it linux?) a year or two ago, but appears to be a Win2K'er again? I never realized tommyp didn't use WinXP until a couple posts scattered in the forum recently. I kept meaning to upgrade to WinXP... but everything still works that I want, aside from the odd piece of software now n then that I have to replace with something else. Maybe TommyP can donate/upload his Spreadsheet as a file to the Update List thread, for whomever might want to take over?
  11. These are not "Microsoft" pages. You might ask in the "Windows XP" forum, or "Windows Vista", depending on your OS. But I doubt you'll get much of a resolution or response. Remove IE8 and reinstall it, usually fixes its' hosing of the registry.
  12. Unfortunately I'm finding XCHM isn't really a solution. At first I really thought it wasn't unicode, as it seemed to refuse to open folders with "†" or "©" in their path, but further testing in some root dir folders have resulted in this very strange functionality for a Windows program: It refuses to open a .CHM in a path or filename that contains a dollar sign "$", or a "%"
  13. Not to knock whomever designed the new home/front page. And I don't know if its merely the pastel colour scheme or the layout or a combination of the two. Arstechnica offers users a customization option to Go "Dark" as well civfanatics offers a few different skins/themes to choose from. Any chance of MSFN doing something similiar?
  14. The board is pretty confusing Martin, look at it ---> Latest stable release - HFSLIP 1.7.8 - June 14 And then look at that thread, glance a bit at what the first post says. Then go look at the Test Release thread, and this is still at the very top of it, before TommyP edits in: The "Sticky: HFSLIP, The 2K/XP/2K3 slipstreamer" thread should be locked/renamed or something, and the first post updated, as well that bit I quoted needs to be removed from the current "HFSLIP - Test releases" thread.
