  1. Well, it looks like the KB article for that new WMP hotfix is up and running.
  2. You are aware that the Soundblaster Drivers folder needs to be referenced in winnt.sif as well, right? Just checking.
  3. This seems quite an interesting trick indeed. Anyone confirmed yet whether it works on their machines?
  4. http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp-2k_archive.html The new ones didn't seem to receive much fanfare compared to 45.23 and past drivers. What's a WDM driver, and why does 45.33 get the unusual tag of Graphics Driver on the list (the other don't carry tags)? And why are the 52.16 drivers dubbed Forceware? It wasn't until yesterday that I realised these sets existed.
  5. Ok, understood............. wonder if his royal Goshiness knows plenty about the VIA trickery?
  6. Like this, right? OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\000_VIA\WinXP;Drivers\000_VIA\Inf\WinXP;Drivers\000_VIA\IDEWinXP;Drivers\000_VIA\AGP;Drivers\001_NVidia" Do the VIA parts have to be installed in a certain order or can they be done in any order? Oh, and is there a particular reason why it's a three-figure number?
  7. Eh? Wouldn't that mean having to seperate all the VIA files into seperate directories then? That would make things a tad complicated!
  8. Cheers, I'm assuming that since VIA apparently needs to be installed before anything else, I thought it'd be safe to list the NVidia folder last. Does it install the drivers in the order you specify in that line? Also, how will I be able to know if the VIA drivers installed successfully???
  9. Say, Aaron..... have I set the following line correctly? OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\VIA\WinXP;Drivers\VIA\Inf\WinXP;Drivers\VIA\IDEWinXP;Drivers\VIA\AGP;Drivers\NVidia4523"
  10. Looks like a Type 2 Hotfix to me as well. Did you test it out, Aaron?
  11. Too....... complicated........ to........ understand........... everything............ GAH.
  12. Loading up IE with the -nohome flag takes up less memory. Does anyone still know how to make the web button on an Internet Keyboard load it with the flag by default?
  13. Are you talking about Windows Tour here? Man, if there was a sure way to not only disallow its install, but to prevent XP from even mentioning it at the first startup at all, I'd be chuffed.
  14. Hmmmm, it appears removing OOBE isn't a good idea if you want to create your own user at initial startup. Plus, removing System Restore happily caused the tab in My Computer Properties to disappear, but the option still existed in Help & Support. Also, I tested a cut-down ISO through Virtual PC, and text-mode setup complained about a file missing: mstask.hlp. I have a feeling that this could be something to do with LAYOUT.INF...
  15. Is there a way to make the Web/Home button on my Internet Keyboard load up IE - but with the -nohome command option by default? I tried editing [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\IEXPLORE.EXE\shell\open\command], but that didn't seem to work.
  16. I just thought of something - Q828026 is regarded as a general Media Player hotfix isn't it? Doesn't that mean that it'll work without WMP9? You know, like, the default WMP8 & 6.4 setup?
  17. Would removing WMP8 allow one to carry out a clean install of WMP9? BTW, are the following IE.INF and MSTASK.INF altered correctly? IE.INF: ; ; IE4 INF ; [Version] signature="$Windows NT$" ClassGUID={00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000} SetupClass=Base LayoutFile=layout.inf DriverVer=07/01/2001,5.1.2600.1106 [DestinationDirs] ; Anything not installed by the system by default Base.AppDir.CopyFile = 16422,%MSIE4% Base.AppDir.DelFiles = 16422,%MSIE4% Base.SysDir.DelFiles = 11 Base.WinDir.DelFiles = 25 MSIE3patch = 17 TextConverter.CopyFile = 16427,Microsoft Shared\TextConv Branding.CopyFile = 16422,%MSIE4%\SIGNUP Triedit.CopyFile = 16427,Microsoft Shared\Triedit MSInfo.CopyFile = 16427,Microsoft Shared\MSInfo [DefaultInstall] MSTASK.INF: ; ; Scheduling Agent installation script ; [Version] Signature=$CHICAGO$ LayoutFile=layout.inf DriverVer=07/01/2001,5.1.2600.0 [DestinationDirs] CopyInf = 17 SystemDirCopy = 11 JobFolderCopy = 25,%TASKS_FOLDER% HelpDirCopy = 18 FilesToDelete = 10,%Tasks_FOLDER% [DestinationDirs.NT] CopyInf = 17 SystemDirCopy = 11 JobFolderCopy = 25,%TASKS_FOLDER% HelpDirCopy = 18 FilesToDelete = 10,%TASKS_FOLDER% [BaseWinOptions] DefaultInstall.NT [DefaultInstall] Come to think of it, are there like any really bad side effects from removing IE with this method?
  18. Oh, BTW - have I translated some of the tweaks right? Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\mailto\DefaultIcon] "@"="%ProgramFiles%\Outlook Express\msimn.exe,-2" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\mailto\shell\open\command] "@"=""%ProgramFiles%\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /mailurl:%1" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail] "@"="Outlook Express"
  19. I can only use half of those settings. I obviously can't use the settings which contain a unique ID number... thanks anyways. Oh, and I don't usually have Outlook '03 installed by default.
  20. *Sighs* [enter Avril mode]Why did MS have to make everything so complicated?[/exit Avril mode] :/
  21. Looks like KB824141 and KB828035 both got updated. KB824141 - http://www.<<spam>>.net/commen...1&category=main KB828035 - http://www.<<spam>>.net/commen...0&category=main Thought I'd help by reminding y'all. EDIT: Ah, crap - I forgot there's this conflict between you lot and them lot.
  22. Does anyone know what the regtweak for setting Outlook Express as the default e-mail program in IE's Programs settings is? It's so that the big mail button on my MS Internet keyboard autoloads OE. Easier than a shortcut.
  23. "SuperHidden" Is for hidding windows system protected files to prevent amator users to damage vital windows files ! ***********--------------------*********** But my qustion is that how should we change a attribite of a file to SuperHidden ? So what you're saying is "SuperHidden" is the opposite of "ShowSuperHidden", and shouldn't both be enabled at once? And I hardly count myself as an amateur, btw.
  24. So no-one knows exactly what "SuperHidden" is for? "ShowSuperHidden" we all know what it does, of course.
