  1. Hi all, The Windows 2000 Updates (for HFSLIP) page is now maintained by tomasz86 at his website. He'll link to it in due course. Please address queries regarding the page to him. Thank you to everyone who has until now contributed to the upkeep of the update lists.
  2. Hi Elvi, Here is a list of some Windows updates that Microsoft says are available specifically for Swedish-language systems. It is not at all a complete list, but it is a start. I've made this list from my own list for English-language systems. My English list is incomplete too, and may contain a few mistakes. So I make no promises, but, I think the files contained in the updates below are the latest versions for your language. Please bear in mind that some updates which are said to be English-language only are actually better described as 'multilanguage' - good, regardless of language. W
  3. The file inside the hotfix is Apmbatt.sys My apologies. My notes are wrong and I didn't check the file. Since, after my initial PM to you, I hadn't heard back that the update was surplus, I wondered if there was another reason for its exclusion. This is NOT a backup topic. START your own topic and quit getting on my nerves Thanks to tomasz86 for suggesting a free and very able alternative to the proprietary Ghost (helps to counterbalance some of the less charitable replies )
  4. @PROBLEMCHYLD Why didn't you include Apmbatt.sys 4.10.2227 from 306889?
  5. Here's a suggestion... Before installing WMP9, try installing WindowsMedia9-KB891122-x86-Global-ENU.exe by extracting Wmfdist.exe from it (the previous link explains how to extract it), and then double-clicking Wmfdist.exe. Msdmo.dll is included in 891122. (It might also be possible to install 891122 before WMP9 without extracting Wmfdist.exe - I'm not sure. My understanding is that, pre-WMP9, you have to do it this way.)
  6. It is still available from Microsoft, here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/c/0/8/c0872b4c-ddfc-4dbc-b3e5-ef385a4d349e/wucsp.exe bristols, Are you sure that that link works? I tried it on one of my Win98FE machines: it was only a 1.03MB download, and when I clicked on it to open, it didn't seem to do much of anything. There was a box that popped up with a progress bar, but it all went away quickly before I had a chance to read what it was. Could that be because the PC in which I opened wucsp.exe already has SP1 installed? I was hoping to download a large file containing all the SP1 upd

  8. I say good for this! Leechers need to participate and not just grab 'n run! You say that in jest, right? Isn't the point of the 9x forums (or at least a tangential point ) to support and spread the usage of the OS? Do you do that better by putting up barriers to downloading an unofficial service pack? Interesting that you don't apply the same logic to your own project.
  9. Perhaps because to see members' signatures, you have to not only be a member yourself, but also signed-in. Visitors to this site who are not members never see signatures. The link on the first page to Beta 4 is for them the most prominent link. I can see how confusion might follow.

    Windows Updates

    Hi acus, I don't understand. 913598 is not listed at the Updates page. However, because 935839-v5x is somewhat experimental and subject to change, updates that it replaces will remain listed on the page for those who choose not to use it.
  12. Without wanting to put words into Mim0's mouth, I think he means that: 1. he retains 2657025 in his list for those who don't install hotfixes (as opposed to updates that are generally available, e.g. the ones you don't have to request). 2. he retains 2633952 in his list in deference to Microsoft, who categorises it as a high-priority update (whereas Microsoft calls 2657025 only "optional"). It's true that 2681116 replaces them both. But not everyone will install hotfixes. Microsoft does not test hotfixes (that you have to request) as thoroughly as it tests other updates. On some systems/con
  13. I tried registering Comctl32.dll, but no entry point was found. So, icons on the taskbar, system tray, system tray balloon notification and on the File Properties window all lack alpha transparency.
