Visual Studio v6 with intergrate SP6


 Share

Recommended Posts

I am creating the first beta since I did this about 6 months ago.

Using a program called Araxis Merge to compare my slipstreamed files with the original file so I can create a SFX for everyone

Its ALOT bigger than i had first hoped as there are a few files that aren't actually updated included due to changes in the time stamps, going though the files one by one to remove them :blink: Hum that's only 470 to go now :wacko:

Copy CD1 to a hard drive and extract the exe to the same folder and over write the old files

Download BETA!

Please not this is ONLY for Visual Studio NOT the individual components

7Zip has done a great job of compressing 237 MB (248,734,524 bytes) to 52.7 MB (55,326,436 bytes) (22% of original size)

the first time I tried it I just used the

@xcopy .\Extracted_SP6 .\CD1 /E/H/R/U /Y

and it wouldnt stop asking for the Office 2000 SR1 disk so I had to fine the locations for the new files. its stopped doing that now I added the extra entrys that refure to the extra file now.

I don't use VB6 very much now its more so for AutoRun files and quick apps, just coz I don't have to arse around with .NET's Framework

I will make an Exe that will do the combining, at the mo I'd rather get my Win Tweaker Compiler built so I can release a new version and have a website to go with it run from the compiler so tweaks can be added easily

I will also make a VS6 Shrinker too. this is very high up on my prioritys at the mo as my Unattended DVD is becoming a nightmere waiting for it to burn on to a DVD-RW disk and I now need 2 DVDs one for VS6-MSDN and VS71-MSDN

I will have a play with AutoIt3 today and release a VS6 Shrinker

Right I will post a SFX to update it, I dont have webspace so either if someone can provide a mirror that would be good the size of all the updated files comes to a total of 192MB Uncompressed.

Untill I create a script to do this its the only why i can think off that quick and easy for me and you.

Can be compressed to around 40MB smaller than the orignal SP6 update :o

dont see why not been using bit torrent alot and thats been eatting up alot of my bandwidth, also been having problems with Azreus > 2.2.0.3beta so I have swopped to G3 Torrent.

If I did you wernt the only person to download off my server even over 1GB Network I was struggling to get a single MB coz the P3 just couldnt take the abuse Azrues was giving it :?

Anyway what do you mean 2 days? its 52MB my friend just downloaded a 400MB File and took 12 hours, using download manger IE GetRight should get 20-30KB 120KB MAX

I will add the link to my first post when/if its up
