  1. HFSLIP, The 2K/XP/2K3 slipstreamer

    No problem with 885836 at windows update. Just hfnetchk reports those missing registry entries. I also have some warnings about greater than expected file versions in hfnetchk, but I don't think this is a big deal. One more thing... As you can see in the MSXML4SP2+ latest update thread, the HFSLIP first process the hotfixes and then the other files in HF directory. But in this particular case this means that if I put both the msxml4sp2 and the its post-SP2 hotfix there, the hotfix is not applied in result because the file included in the hotfix is overwritten by the older one from msxml4sp2. Ans there might be a similar issue with media player 10 and its hotfixes. So propably it would be better to process at least some of the non-hotfix filex located in the HF directory before the hotfixes are processed. The best it bould be done with file version checking, but this is pribably beyon the abilities of the batch script.

    The source I use was slipstreamed twice. First it was to the SP1 and then to the SP2. So it's not the pure WinXP slipstreamed to the SP2 level. But only these two slipstreams with Microsofts Service Packs were done at it. But here I must point out that I'm currently running the Win XP installed from the same source (I'm still testing the HFSLIP + nLite so I use another installation for that) with this 885836 hotfix installed manually and hfnetchk shows no problem here. I'm currenly unable to find the original one as I haven't used it since the SP1 came out and I have some more troubles with unability to find some another things I need as well... :-( (little off-topic: if there's anyone interested in finding some missing things for me just come in here and have a try.. :-) ) The download link to the Czech 885836 follows: http://download.microsoft.com/download/0/1...836-x86-CSY.exe

    In regards to the Windows Update Agent slipstreaming: I think I've just found the problem.. the following entries in the HFSLIP: IF "!Localization!"=="Czech" SET LG=CZ IF "!Localization!"=="Czech" SET LNG=CZE should be: IF "!Localization!"=="Czech" SET LG=CS IF "!Localization!"=="Czech" SET LNG=CSY instead. By the way I don't know why there's that LNG thing used there because it doesn't appear to be used anywhere else in the HFSLIP and I think that part should be done with just LG entries just fine... EDIT: In regards to the Windows Installer issue I've found out that this one is my own fault so I will check it out again.
  4. Tomcat: And what will I get when I put the msxmlcab and KB887606 files into the HF directory? Will this work or not? Now I see one possible problem..the original filename of 887606 starts with msxml4sp which means that the file will be processed before the msxmlcab... Well, I think there's one more thing to improve on HFSLIP: check the processed file versions and use the files with greater version numbers. :-) But this might require to rewrite it in C or so...

    Hello, tried the latest HFSLIP on windows XP SP2 - Czech language version and found these issues so far: -Windows Installer 3.1 (WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe) not installed when its source is located in the HF directory. MsiExec shows version 3.00.3790.2180 right after Windows was installed. So I had to install it manually. -Windows Update Agent 2.0 (WindowsUpdateAgent20-x86.exe) not installed when its source is located in the HF directory. Windows Update website requested the update of these components and also when I started the installation of it manually the installer didn't report that the WUA 2.0 is already installed as it normally would if it was installed. I think that these two issues mentioned above might be a non-english Windows related - as those two relevant installers are multilanguage. -Update 885836 (WordPad hotfix) seems to be not completely installed due to hfnetchk: * WINDOWS XP SP2 Patch NOT Installed MS04-041 Q885836 The registry key **SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Windows XP\SP3\KB885836\Type** does not exist. It is required for this patch to be considered installed. -Also I noticed some issues with the later nLite processing (nLite 1.0 RC5) of the Windows installation source, but haven't checked them out completely. It seems that the nLite screws up the HFEXPERT\WIN stuff because none of the files I put there was copied to the installed Windows, but if I installed from the sources not processed by nLite everything was alright here.
