WINDOWS2000-KB941693-X86-ENU.EXE

WINDOWS2000-KB943484-X86-ENU.EXE

Here is some information from my notes (works for me, your mileage may vary):

2124261 = a Wildbill unofficial patch. Current, not obsolete.

914389 = replaced by 980232.

923414 = ?

936021 = ?

941644 = replaced by 951748 v2.

941693 = replaced by 979559.

943484 = replaced by 973037.

975560 = current, not obsolete.

Did you find out if these are obsolete.

And I found another one Windows2000-KB957579-x86-ENU

923414 - Srv.sys, replaced by 982214 (MSFN user Wildbill-produced unofficial update)

936021 - Msxml3.dll, replaced by 2079403 (MSFN user Wildbill-produced unofficial update)

957579 - replaced by 951748 v2

While they work for me so far with no problems, of course you install unofficial updates at your own risk.

Regarding 936021 and any other (official) update: to find out whether or not it has been superseded by an (official) update, you can check its security bulletin page. Each update has a column listing "bulletins replaced by this update". Check it:

Thanks! I do use all of Wildbill patches for 2000 Server and I have no problems either.

I have deleted all obsolete updates from my HF folder and replace them with the newer ones. Thanks again.

Seems like we'll have to wait.

THX for the info! :)

As far I understood this article only the installer was fixed (problems installing DX on a XP RTM, XP SP1) and a Bing Bar (*lol*) was included....

So I think there is no need to wait for an updated DX, because we don't use an installer here (otherwise something went wrong here :lol: ).

There's a couple of items that a review of the updates page for 2K on FDV's site has revealed. Nothing urgent, nor maybe even important, as 2K has probably already slowly sunk into the West for a lot of folks. Just not me.

The Windows Media Player 9 installer link, MPSetup.exe, is pretty much dead. Didn't take me anywhere worth going. So I tried a web search (Yahoo), which is getting to be a frequent occurrence for me where M$ software is concerned. That brought up a couple of free files sites, the second of which (http://www.freewarefiles.com/downloads_counter.php?programid=4643) was merely a link back to M$'s site, but guess what? It worked! So it's still available, and it's a direct download to boot.

http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/b/c/1bc0b1a3-c839-4b36-8f3c-19847ba09299/MPSetup.exe

Now the only remaining issue is how long will it last...

The DirectX 9.0C (standard) link is also pretty much dead, but my luck in finding a M$ link didn't hold. There are some FTP sites where I was able to obtain a copy but most were in non-English speaking domains, they weren't all the same size, which might mean different languages, and who knows how long they'll last. Not saying there's anything to do here, just being thorough.

Another item is that Windows2000-KB908531-v2-x86-ENU.EXE includes the note "FDV not recommended". According to his page, Windows2000-KB842773-x86-ENU.EXE should also include that.

Last but not least, I gotta say, "Don't do it!" doesn't do much for me, and apparently others are confused as well (). Wouldn't a relevant link () would be a good idea?

Thanks for listening and your time!

@ykchanaed

Thanks for IEAWSDC.CAB and OPUC4.CAB. That makes my collection complete.

Hi jinjou,

Thanks for your time and concern. :)

...2K has probably already slowly sunk into the West for a lot of folks. Just not me.

You're not alone. Other MSFN members are helping keep 2K alive with unofficial patches.

Thanks for picking that up. I'll replace the web page link with this direct download.

The DirectX 9.0C (standard) link is also pretty much dead, but my luck in finding a M$ link didn't hold.

Hmmm. I found the direct download link for directx_9c_redist.exe, but Microsoft seems to have replaced the file on the server. Now, the size of the downloaded file is 1.3KB. Seems we need to find another (trusted) source for this file. Any suggestions?

Another item is that Windows2000-KB908531-v2-x86-ENU.EXE includes the note "FDV not recommended". According to his page, Windows2000-KB842773-x86-ENU.EXE should also include that.

Well, Windows2000-KB908531-v2-x86-ENU.EXE is included for the sake of completeness, even though later release contain an updated SHELL32.DLL file. See, Windows2000-KB908531-v2-x86-ENU.EXE contains the file VERCLSID.EXE. It is the installation of this file that FDV does not recommend. However, in case someone needs this file (for some reason I know not what), it's listed. Perhaps I should make this update's situation clearer.

Last but not least, I gotta say, "Don't do it!" doesn't do much for me, and apparently others are confused as well (). Wouldn't a relevant link () would be a good idea?

I inherited the upkeep of this page. The "Don't do it!" remark was made before my involvement. I agree, it's not really helpful without an explanatory link. Thank you for supplying one.

I'll make all these updates to the page and send it to FDV for upload.

Thanks again!

bristols,

Thanks much for that! I certainly haven't seen much to give me that feeling.

Well, Windows2000-KB908531-v2-x86-ENU.EXE is included for the sake of completeness, even though later release contain an updated SHELL32.DLL file.

Boy, I admit that did not quite compute. :)

Is the later release on the list? If so, which one?

Perhaps I should make this update's situation clearer.

I guess that would help me anyway.

Actually, I just thought it would be good to tip people off that FDV thought Windows2000-KB842773-x86-ENU.EXE was also to be avoided, but anyone can find that on his page like I did, if they're looking.

I'll make all these updates to the page and send it to FDV for upload.

You rock dude.

OK, I admit it. I'm a noob. I just spent five minutes trying to figure out how to make a "so and so, said:" quote. Anyone want to toss the old man a bone and give me a clue? Much appreciated.

And this post editors got some MAJOR kerning issues...
