  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. Which updates are multilanguage, I don't know. So, the unofficial English updates mentioned occasionally in the list below might be OK for you (sorry, no idea). But certainly, the updates below should all be available for Swedish systems. When you request these updates, the download links for the updates will arrive in your inbox. The files you download will actually be compressed archive files, in which you will find the updates you need. Clicking these compressed files will start the updates' extraction. Hope that's all clear. 245065 (Note the difference between the KB number - 245065 - and the number contained in the filename, and again, the number in the hotfix's INF files - 242928) 252187 (English version of this update is superseded by unofficial ATADRV98.EXE) 242004 262232 259253 267304 257360 242937 (When requesting this hotfix, choose that with PKG9724 in the Fix name column. Note the difference between the KB number - 242937 - and that contained in the filename) 268064 274370 (English version of this update is superseded by unofficial Q304708.EXE and IOSYS98.EXE) 272620 (Note the difference between the KB number - 272620 - and that contained in the filename) 288430 293197 295629 (Requires a registry fix, as explained in the KB article. The fix, TICStsChg.reg, is included in the request package.) 305037 (When requesting this hotfix, choose either one of the two offered (they are identical).) 306889 306453 278033 291854 (Note the difference between the KB number - 291854 - and that contained in the filename) 276602 280448 (This update requires 276602. Install 276602 first) 323708 278368 319571 (should be good even though the update is for "Windows 98", not "Windows 98 Second Edition")
  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 updates that I could then burn to CD and install as needed. --JorgeA Yes, it is quite small. Honestly, it's been so long since I had a 98 FE system, that the details escape me, except that I always took it to be necessary to install a couple of associated updates along with wucsp.exe, as listed by MDGx, which somehow together with wucsp.exe constitute 'SP1': http://download.microsoft.com/download/win98/Update/Y2K/W98/EN-US/y2k.exe http://download.microsoft.com/download/win98/Update/Y2K2/W98/EN-US/Y2KW98_2.EXE wucsp.exe contains these files inside CSP.CAB (perhaps check to see that you have these builds installed): Edit: maybe submix8c can expand on this. Edit by dencorso: added the version info for the VxDs, which I've determined while on XP, by using my VxDVer tool.
  7. It is still available from Microsoft, here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/c/0/8/c0872b4c-ddfc-4dbc-b3e5-ef385a4d349e/wucsp.exe
  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/configurations, some hotfixes have been reported to cause problems. One or two members here don't have a good word to say about them. Having said that, my own experience with hotfixes has been almost entirely trouble-free.
  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.

  15. Thanks for the suggestion tomasz86. Not yet. I'll try and report back later. By the way, I assume you're talking about registering post-install, rather than modifying an INF?
  16. I have a question about the IE.INF in FDV's fileset for Windows 2000. IE6 is given two versions: - ie.ver.6.orig (6.0.2800.1106) - ie.ver.6.patched (6.0.2900.5512) That latter "patched" build number is actually that of IE6 SP2 (the build number for IE6 files provided by Windows XP SP3). It means that when I slipstream IE6, the IE build number shown throughout the registry is 6.0.2900.5512, and not the expected 6.0.2800.1106. At least one program I've tried to install in the past checked for 6.0.2800.1106 (the IE6 build you'd expect to find on Windows 2000) and, not finding it, concluded that IE6 was not installed. So I assume that it's necessary for some reason to specify two versions like this (orig and patched). Could anyone explain why the XP SP3 build number is used (I mean, assuming it's necessary)? Could the orig version be set to IE6 SP0 (6.0.2600.0) and the patched version to IE SP1 (6.0.2800.1106) instead? Would this harm or break something in the slipstream process?
  17. WildBill's Windows2000-UU-KBz2479628-v9-x86-ENU.exe updates several Windows 2000 system files to enable 32-bit icons. When I slipstream Windows 2000 with IE6 using FDV's fileset, some icons lack alpha transparency. For an example of what I mean, please see this image showing a hard black shadow surrounding the "i" (information) icon, which should be a nice alpha-transparent shadow. Also, 32-bit system tray icons appear whitewashed. Others who don't use FDV's Fileset don't suffer from these problems. I think it has to do with delreg entries in one or more of the fileset's INFs that relate to Comctl32.dll, but I'm not sure. Since I don't really understand how these INFs work, I'm asking here for any hints you can give me about which of the many delreg entries could be responsible. I don't know where to look, or for what to look. As far as I know, it could be that the problem is nothing to do with delreg entries related to Comctl32.dll I welcome any advice. I've searched the forums to no avail. Thanks!

  20. I don't know how to disable the pointing stick via software. But I believe you could simply disconnect the cable that connects the pointing stick to the motherboard (I haven't tried it with a C600/610 but I think all C-series Dell laptops have the same keyboard). On the underside of the laptop, remove all screws which have embossed on the case next to them a letter K. Then you can gently lift the keyboard, which itself is connected to the motherboard via its own cable. Here are a couple of tutorials that might help, about dissembling C-series Dells. They're not specifically about disabling the pointing stick, but they should help if you want to try this manual method: http://web.archive.org/web/20090131095351/http://powerbrixx.com/reference/dell/cpx_keyboard_removal.htm http://web.archive.org/web/20070816033943/http://www.electroblog.com:8090/laptop/index.shtml Edit - I haven't looked inside a c-series Dell for a little while - I'm not 100% sure that the pointing stick is connected independently from the keyboard and touchpad. So, please consider this as just a possible solution.
