Fileset 9, all done

Recommended Posts

"So if it's antivir that delays set 9........"

@Brabant - to clear any confusion, Antivir and most others require the Post SP4 Rollup. If you slip that you will be fine. I myself have pre-slipped it so that my slip goes faster. I have also made sure to add the reg entries, which HFSLIP does automatically. So I may misunderstand but if I implied that set 9 won't let antivirus software work, I would be wrong, becuase it really -should- work okay. It was just me at one point that had a problem.

I probably didn't read you correctly anyhow since I have had a few beers tonight so never mind me :whistle:

I noticed that you removed the suggestion of using Windows Update Agent 3 on many pages of your site. Is it no longer a WU solution?

Which is fine anyway. I usually just use the MS Security RSS feeds.

Yeah... WU3 was left to shut up ignorant critics who claimed that Windows could no longer be updated.

They forget manual downloads from the list TommyP keeps, and WU3 was an option but after a lot of internal debate I decided it's not important, because what really got me thinking was the fact that hotfixes will come to an end on July 13, 2010. :no:

Fred, went to your site, redownloaded the fileset for W2K. First time was a short 300kB file, with a .bmp called "beartown.bmp."

Any idea what's going on?

Second try got the file set okay.

As for the download problem, no idea

Just a heads up - I created a new build over the past few hours, and ended up having to go into the depths of the hivesys.inf file. Text-mode setup kept telling me that Line 498 was corrupted, and setup was aborted. I removed the comma after "Control", and all is fine now. I don't know if this is a bug for anyone else, or just me.

Thanks man

fixed

For those who simply had better luck with Set 8, here is the last version (set 8k) before Set 9 came out.

@jimmsta - check the URL in your sig, it has some invalid chars

Perfect timing!

I finally got around to building FS9 with June beta HFSLIP (ver L) and got the same error message in VirtualBox 3.0.6.

Line 498 of hivesys.inf is corrupted.

Glad someone else smarter than I am (jimmsta) found the problem.

Will try commenting out the offending line. (Will have to find a text editor that numbers lines!)

Thanks Fred:

I dnld'd the updated fileset with hivesys.inf and iexplore.inf updated 9/21. I got the error "cannot copy reboot.exe." I notice that file is missing from the archive. I'll copy reboot.exe from a previous fileset into the new and do it again.

Shoot, I just can't get this right!! Sorry!

Anyway, reboot is not an essential file. Hit ESC during setup if it's a problem to skip it.

Hi Fred:

"Shoot, I just can't get this right!! Sorry!"

Hey, I'm thankful you've stuck with this project this long! No way I could do something like what you've done.

Yes, at first I hit ESC and it installed fine without REBOOT. But since I'm a perfectionist, I copied REBOOT from an old archive and reinstalled.

So far, so good. Am posting from Fileset 9 within VBox, within an nLite'd XP.

Give this set a try

http://vorck.com/windows/data/fdvfiles-xp.zip

It actually leaves some junk in, as you can see if you run the following:

expand -r syssetup.in_

expand -r sysoc.in_

I actually wanted a version of XP with a working Firewall (for reasons I won't even start to explain).

This set also leaves in Internet Explorer because I needed to run Adobe Acrobat 9 and didn't want to figure out which file Adobe thought they needed.

If you want to remove IE, just comment it out in the syssetup.inf file (and then recompress it of course).
