  1. This was a terrific project in its heyday. Though I haven't been on here much in the last couple of years, I'm also sorry to see it go. Perhaps someday, someone will pick it up again, but OSes are evolving, and there's always a time for the world to move on. Best wishes to you, TommyP, and to Tomcat76, wherever he may be...
  2. This happened on one of my machines too after upgrading (although I went from 6801 to 7000). Not sure what the cause is.
  3. Well, it's been many months since I've visited MSFN, and perhaps even longer since I've visited this particular forum. I feel by now that many people in the Windows community have switched over to Vista (even with its many shortcomings and the complaints that people have lodged against it). Nevertheless, have you any news about a possible future stable release of the XP PowerPacker (i.e., v1.0 final)?
  4. I apologize for not updating this in May as I had promised. Unfortunately, my other obligations have cut into the time that I am able to spend in maintaining my personal HFSLIP installations and the concurrent updating of my hotfix collection. At this point, I am not sure whether I will still update this list at some point in the future, or if I will simply introduce a new list for XP SP3. Moderators, you may unpin this (and my 2000 list) if you'd like.
  5. Expect an update after the May patch cycle.
  6. Updated checksums for January and February 2008 hotfixes.
  7. Updated checksums for January and February 2008 hotfixes.
  8. If you select option A, HFSLIP should merge DRIVER.CAB and SP4.CAB into a new and recompressed DRIVER.CAB with some updated binaries from your hotfixes. In that case, SP4.CAB should no longer exist in your SOURCESS folder after running HFSLIP, which leads me to think that something went wrong at the point in the process. Can you attach your HFSLIP.LOG file?
  9. Oh, I forgot that there's always the "." and ".." in the filesystem so that command wouldn't work. Yeah, I see what you're saying. I don't think it's worth the extra code either. Thanks for clarifying.
  10. Actually, if the WMP11 folder is not deleted by the time the HFSLIP process exits, then the HFSLIP process must have been interrupted at some point. When including the EXE setup file for WMP11 in HF, the following line takes care of the folder immediately after the components are extracted: IF DEFINED RDWMP11DIR RD/Q/S HF\WMP11 If you run HFSLIP with an empty WMP11 folder, then some errors should be generated by the console while running HFSLIP. Tomcat76 should probably change this line to prevent problems if the WMP11 folder exists but is somehow empty: On the other hand, I noticed an unrelated bug while I was working on my 2000 SP4 source. Even though I'm pretty sure wmfdist.exe (from KB891122) was extracted properly, the system complained about being unable to delete setup_wm.exe from TEMP\WMPCOD. I should probably run HFSLIP again to confirm.
  11. He's not prompted to install those CABs; they're installed automatically without user interaction and then rechecked every time you visit WU/MU. I guess he's just paranoid about having all the ActiveX controls he needs already slipstreamed. No need for that though if it's installed automatically.

    I just did another search in the HFSLIP forum and found no less than 13 threads that reference KB888111. Yes, that is indeed a simple question. How about a simple answer? At least try to click on my links this time. Good day to you! @Extravert, thanks for trying to help. However, jvidal's question involves whether or not this particular hotfix can be slipstreamed by HFSLIP, not just whether his computer would support it.
  13. First try moving your HFSLIP directory to something like "C:\HFSLIP" so you don't have any spaces in the path. You also have too many updates for IE7 -- KB933566, KB937143, and KB939653 are obsolete. Follow Tomcat76's update page to see if you have any other unnecessary fixes in your folder.

    @jvidal, you really need to think about searching before asking here. I even commented on this hotfix back in March 2007 when I said it was the most asked-about hotfix in the HFSLIP forum.
  15. First update in 11 months. Enjoy, and Happy New Year to all!
