  2. The build from WildBill / tomasz86's 2079403 for Windows 2000 is newer. Not sure I agree with that. If you start putting that sort of thing in, it becomes more of an enhancement pack than a service pack. I think things like that should be included in a separate package. FWIW I agree with Dave-H.

    Sorry about that, acus. I've removed 981073 from the page. This means that 975254 is a current update, not superseded. Also, I forgot to mention in the changelog 2584146 (hotfix) (thanks tomasz86). I've amended my previous post.

  6. Apologies for going off topic a bit, but I remember that at the time, erpdude8 mentioned that he'd modified that build of explorer.exe in other ways, which he refused to disclose. I also remember that one or two members voiced their displeasure at that - perhaps even Gape, when he released one of the betas for version 3 of his Service Pack without erpdude8's explorer (if I remember rightly - please correct me if you remember better). Did anyone ever find out what those additional modifications were?

Replaces all previous versions (thanks WildBill). Please note: this update requires 2393802 (unofficial). - Added 2476490 (unofficial) (thanks WildBill). - Added 829395 (thanks PROBLEMCHYLD). Other Changes - Updated the notes for 884872. This update is problematic (thanks tomasz86). As a workaround, install it manually (don't slipstream it), after the update has been extracted, and a number of files from it replaced with newer ones. Please read the notes for more. - Updated the notes for 2160329, 2296011, 2436673 and 2286198 to make clear why these updates have not (yet) been moved to the Obsolete List. Superseded updates - 943055 (is superseded by 2476490 (unofficial)). - 907868 (is superseded by 2508429 (unofficial)). News Mimo uploaded HFSLIP 1.7.10 beta J v7 (thanks Mimo).

  10. The builds of the corresponding fonts included in MDGx's True Type Fonts (TTF) Pack are from XP SP3. According to MDGx, these builds (dated 14-4-2008) are newer than those included in the Euro Expansion Font Update 1.2 (dated 15-11-2006), irrespective of their build number. Between 2006 and 2008, Microsoft added further Unicode support to those fonts. So, it seems that this is another case in which MS got its build numbers mixed up.
  11. Thanks... But: - 833154 is replaced by 839429. - 819249 is already listed. - 817446 is replaced by 841029. However: - 829395 does seem to have the latest Winsta.dll - 5.0.2195.6824. Thank you. 829395 appears to be a Windows 2000 Server-only update. Could any Server users please confirm that this is the latest build of Winsta.dll?
  12. I'm getting the same message, indeed for all hotfixes (not just those for Windows 2000). Hmmm.

    Windows Updates

    Hi acus, Thanks for this. Has anyone tested this version with Windows 2000? Likewise, has anyone tried Msvbvm60.dll 6.0.98.32 with Windows 2000? Since this is a Windows 7-only update, my suspicion is that it won't work...
  14. Thanks WildBill. Added 2393802 (MS11-011) v8 to the Windows 2000 Post-SP4 Updates for HFSLIP page.
  15. @myselfidem Since you seem to misunderstand the use of the word "phantom" here, and since you don't seem to be able to move on and stop hijacking this thread now, I'll reply. The word "phantom" here was not to cast doubt on whether or not there had been a post. It was meant to refer to the fact that, when I arrived at this topic yesterday, the post about which you were complaining, and which you had attributed to me, had gone (had been removed by a mod) and so I could not see it or check it. I did not at any time claim that you "invented" a story. You made a claim, that I had made a post, which in fact I had not made. Right? Of course there was a post - jaclaz was able to post a screenshot of the post (as viewed from the forum), and identify the poster. No-one disputes that there was a post. I thought that the evidence jaclaz supplied was enough - to establish that there had been a post, and that it had not been made by me. But until he supplied that evidence, all there was for me to see was your claim that I had made a post - which I had not. If you have nothing more to add to the topic of this thread, please stop posting here. Thanks for wasting more of my time. Oh... what's that you say? Apology accepted.
  16. Strange. As far as I know, the patch doesn't do anything with resources. I took a pass through kernel32, ntdll, and ntoskrnl to see if I could spot any Unicode strings that weren't being freed, but so far everything looks okay. Are you seeing high memory usage for certain apps after a long time? Are you seeing it on both UP and MP processors? I'd probably need a lot more info before I'd know where to look, much less know that the patch itself is causing it. I have it installed here, so I'll keep an eye out for memory leaks, but to date I've had no problems. I've been using 2393802-v7 since yesterday and haven't experienced any problems. Coupled with the fact that my earlier report was less than scientific (I wasn't monitoring apps for memory usage, but instead was just observing odd lags in GDI refreshes in those certain apps I mentioned), I have to say now that I would disregard my earlier post. Actually, the behaviour was like some kind of hard drive write lag. I saw it on a multiprocessor system - Pentium D Presler, ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 Pro chipset. I'm still quite unfamiliar with the system, and as such I haven't fine-tuned it, in terms of performance, to any large degree.
  17. No. In this regard, I consider XP to have an advantage over 2000.
  18. It seems that it's you who doesn't understand. Please read this again: The spammer did not use my forum name. You saw something that was not there (first mistake) and then posted here what you thought you saw (second mistake). Just check your facts next time; that's all
  19. Right there: If only you could take your own advice, myselfidem
  20. Truly, you have sedated me, jaclaz. Thanks. @myselfidem: be more careful in future before you start making accusations, please.
  21. Just to confirm: I did not make any such post. The current post is the first I've made today. Can anyone confirm whether or not this phantom post was posted from my account? Mods, could you please advise?

  23. Hi WildBill, Just a report about my experience after installing 2393802-v6 (for which, thank you). So far, so relatively good (installed on a pre-existing system, not slipstreamed) except for one or two strange resource leak-type behaviours that I certainly haven't seen previously. A few hours' browsing with two browsers (Firefox and Opera) and multiple open tabs, Notepad++, Notepad2, xplorer2 Lite, and a handful of instances of Irfanview has been enough to trigger it. I apologise for the vagueness. However I'm pretty sure that the behaviour is a consequence (somehow) of installing your patch.
