  1. Old topic, I know, but it is #1 on the Google search. Also, after many hours of reading about how to fix the Windows 7 cd/dvd driver required issue: -buy a new dvd recorder -download iso from a reliable source -burn at 2x -install from usb I finally found the solution. Thanks go to ph0tic, post #7 here- http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=68312 Don't remove (ie don't add to [Components] list) - Manual Install (Setup.exe) This worked for me.
  2. Muppet Hunter I have been using your update list for XP from Fred's site for a while now. Thank you for the continued efforts. I know that this takes a lot of your time. Your batch method just saved me a few hours of work too. Again, thank you.
  3. Ack Obvious now that I know the solution. Tweaks - Taskbar - Disable Balloon Tips
  4. Hi. This seems to be specifically a XP Home edition problem. When I remove Help and Support, I get this error message from msconfig: An Access Denied error was returned while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using an Administrator account to make the specified changes. Of course I am logged in as admin. Installing an HP printer caused this similar issue for others (I Googled it) because of a registry change. It wasn't the fault of the printer driver but a bug in msconfig that popped up because of it. A small change to the registry fixed it. I am hoping that a registry a
  5. I am only testing individual items. There could still be the possibility of failure due to combinations of two or more. Not: ;# Operating System Options # Help and Support ;# Services # HTTP SSL Remote Registry Terminal Services Text Services Framework This could take months. If you have the same problem, post here and I will narrow the list. I believe that this may be specific to XP Home version.
  6. I would think something that is preventing (or service removed) access to the registry until after log on: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Hints\... Time for me to break out the vm again.
  7. For XP sp3,I have a password hint that does show up for the User Accounts dialog when you "Show password hint" but it doesn't show up when you hit the "?" at log on. Any ideas?

  8. I hacked my XP sp3 and I got my clock to look like this. It may even look better with a black clock bmp. timedate.cpl version 5.1.2600.5512: clock hands - change the RGB value at 19c5 from 00 80 80 to 44 44 44 5 min marks - change the RGB value at 1a02 from 00 FF FF to 90 90 90
  9. Hi D, In the past I mentioned timedate.cpl not displaying properly. I don't know if this was ever an issue with your system. I fixed it with a slight mod where I moved the CONTROL statement for 10.bmp in the dialog. I slightly changed the clock position values as well. 1.res and 10.res: ... CONTROL "&Time", 104, BUTTON, BS_GROUPBOX | WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, 132, 2, 113, 125 CONTROL 10, 0, STATIC, SS_BITMAP | SS_CENTERIMAGE | SS_REALSIZEIMAGE | WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_GROUP, 138, 14, 101, 87 CONTROL "", 712, "ClockWndMain", 0x50000000, 144, 13, 90, 90 ... Now if some
  10. Wow, this thread started in 2006! I found it because I also got to the nLite step for SFC disabling and wondered if I was enabling SFC or enabling a patch to disable SFC. WADR, maybe the dropdown should read: SFC Enabled (default) or SFC Disabled
  11. Irfanview can do it. The bitmap should be 16 color already, so in Irfanview, select Image - Palette - Edit Palette... Double Click to edit. You probably know (maybe use) Irfanview; it is a good,well known freeware app. All is well with me and my family. Always so busy though. I do pop in here once and a while to visit the progress. Good work as always. I see that you have some great helpers too.
  12. Hi D, I read from your homepage that you want to start work on the next Windows 7 pack. I'm not sure if you will still be updating Vista 2.6, but if you are, I have a few more suggestions. The Log Off dialog has been fixed but I notice that the Turn Off dialog hasn't. The Cancel button needs to be moved up a little. This is how my msgina.dll - 20100 dialog reads: 20100 DIALOGEX 0, 0, 208, 122 STYLE DS_SYSMODAL | DS_SETFOREGROUND | WS_POPUP | WS_BORDER CAPTION "" LANGUAGE LANG_ENGLISH, SUBLANG_ENGLISH_US FONT 8, "MS Shell Dlg" { CONTROL "Cancel", 2, BUTTON, BS_PUSHBUTTON | WS_CHILD | WS_
  13. I know it has been stated that you only need SP3. But, I just ran an app that doesn't know about SP3 and wants to find wmmfilt.dll (missing on SP3) before it continues. Eublade makes a good observation.
  14. I asked something similar to this well over a year ago and was told that it is always better to start fresh. Just keep a backup of the hfslip directories, added files and SOURCE files on its own CD, flash drive, whatever. Make changes to this as you need. Edit: I am not implying that you came late to the party It is just that I asked this a while back and things can always change.
