Windows Updates


Recommended Posts

Yes, you shouldn't use "WINDOWS" as:

1. Some users may have different Windows folder's name.

2. It's "WINNT" for Windows 2000 ;)

The new reg-setting (in the inf of the new SWFLASH.cab) takes the correct path (not fix WINDOWS) :) Edited by Mim0

I posed what may be a stupid question at WildBill's petool topic but on reflection wondered whether I should have posed it here. In bristols' Win2KSP4 update list 2286198 is said to supersede 967715, but a cursory examination suggests that the latter deals with autorun/autoplay functionality while the former does not seem to have anything to do with that - nor apparently claims to supersede any of the previous patches in that area.

Could this be an error, or did WildBill simply include additional stuff that would make it correct, or am I missing something really obvious?


- bill

Edit: Question was answered in WildBill's thread (Yes, the former does supersede the latter, even though Microsoft's descriptions don't appear to recognize this).

Hi acus

Hi, while I was reading the blog of Blackwingcat, I have noticed that he found a "new" hotfix fo Win2000, related to keyboard driver.

I had already seen that, but thank you for taking the time to post here. Included in today's update.

I've tried building multiple times with the current up-to-date list, but I always end up with a disc that states that vga.sys is corrupted. I'm including all the requestable hotfixes, and have replaced my source media multiple times, to no avail.

I'm currently running hfslip one last time to try and get a working ISO out of the whole ordeal. I've gone through and removed any conflicting or old HF's, and made sure everything is in its right place (I'm no noob to hfslip, but it's been ages since I used it). I'll update this post with my latest results (log file, etc), if it's not successful.

<div>Edit: that try was unsuccessful. I went through the list again, removed anything that was in yellow, and am building a stock win2k w/IE6 now... perhaps it'll work this time :S</div><div>Edit2: Success. I guess one of the non-public hotfixes is bugged, because I _know_ the resulting OS didn't have a different vga.sys in it, but it was being detected as corrupted (maybe something in the layout.inf?)</div>

I noticed that your W2KSP4 updates list doesn't have Windows2000-KB977377-x86-ENU.EXE (Schannel.dll, 5.1.2195.7371).

Instead, it's present Windows2000-KB960225-x86-ENU.EXE (Schannel.dll, 5.1.2195.7213).

Am I wrong?

No, you're right.

As I remember it, 977377 was somewhat buggy, breaking TLS. The KB article lists several known issues (but also a registry workaround). XP got subsequent updates that fixed the issues 977377 caused, but unfortunately Windows 2000 did not.

I could list it. So far I have not, since I remember people being unhappy with it at the time that it was released, and I seem to remember also that the update was recommended for server admins and not end users. Blackwingcat also removed the update from his SP5 list.
