Windows 2000 "Hotstream" Project

Recommended Posts

@dirtwarrior - Thanks for your support :) - my updates can only be slipstreamed manually at the moment (and - trust me - that is hard work). When the packages are final, I'll take care of slipstreaming - I wanna slipstream them too B)

Everyone: I NEED VOULENTEERS TO GET 8 MORE HOTFIXES FROM MICROSOFT - I overlooked those earlier because they are quite old - please help me! (I can't get anything from Microsoft myself anymore). PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. I have a special "reward" for anyone who helps me :yes: - so send me a PM if you wanna help me out (you just have to own a valid W2k license and make a phone call - that's all it takes).

I'll have news on the option pack later today.

Best regards,

Gurgelmeyer

Thanks to a few very helpful prople, I now have 22 new hotfixes (almost). That's a total of >240 in the final Update Pack! B)

Expect some great news soon! And don't install the MS URP1 even if it shows up on WU - it will be part of the Update Pack :yes:

Public release of the Update Pack is within a day or two - so .. er... "stay tuned" :rolleyes:

Got to get some sleep now I'm afraid.... I'll try to finish the Option Pack too ;)

Maybe you can get some more from the W2K Update Rollup? It's about to be release.

My thoughts exactly - I'm actually waiting for MS.

Btw, I renamed the Update Pack to "URP1", which is short for "Unofficial RollUp 1" :whistle:

Well - still got work to do on the Option Pack though... if anyone wants to check out the repacked components, they are now available for public download thanks to war59312 :thumbup

1 - DA.EXE (Data Access + XML + JET + fixes etc)

2 - IC.EXE (IE6SP1 + WAB6 + OE6SP1 + fixes)

3 - DX.EXE (DirectX 9.0c)

Available here: http://www.willsdownloads.com/hotstream/hotstream.php

I might mention, that all the Option Pack components can be safely and completely uninstalled (including DX9).

Best regards,

Gurgelmeyer B)
