  1. If I remember correctly, then fdv added support for referencing dosnet.inf besides txtsetup.sif also, for his fileset, but hfslip dosen't do that for the files it processes, as it's solely meant for CD installs...
  2. Just to rap up what i've previously posted about my feelings towards this, then I just noticed this older post from the HFSLIP test-releases thread, which I haden't seen before: Source: (I'm reffering to the last line, and not the first.)
  3. LOL! Anyway, couldn't agree more!
  4. tain was hosting the site for him, and additionally I was also reffering to the removal of download links from the MSFN HFSLIP threads. If not because of the above, then obviously I would fully understand it!
  5. Really? -Then they wouldn't be understanding anything about FOSS licensing and make a complete joke out of themselves in the process! Anyway, I would suggest that FDV made a stickied post with the link of latest hfslip and a post about seeking new maintainers/developers, or else I really don't see the point of this forum, truth be told! Ppl go here for help, instrutions and download links! Especially now when the main page is down. TP did an amazing job and is a really nice guy, and I fully respect that he has decided to quit maintaning hfslip, but honestly, then i'm pretty disappointed about the way he left, i.e. the wording in the last hfslip-post edit, the removing of the download link for hfslip and finally for clossing the website! What is that about - trying to "punish ppl for not donating to his freeware project?"... Granted, he has every right to do so, but my point is just what kind of a message that states! PS: Thanks for adding me to your friends list mate!
  6. His license dosen't govern him that right...
  7. I fully agree with that, except that I don't think a rewrite is a top-priority for the XP-core-updates slipstreaming part, as that works fine and can eassily be extended as is, to feature non-supported updates, but to strip out all non-XP and Non-core-updates out, and release as a HFSLIP fork under the same license, would defenetally be a good move IMHO. I'm not using Windows and hence, HFSLIP myself anymore, but I used to be very interessted in this project when I did, so i'm sad to see it "blowing in the wind" like this(or whatever the right expression is )... For the Win2k users still holding the fane high(best Windows version IMHO, especially when coupled with fdv's fileset or hfcleanup, but unfortunetly, because of missing new driver and app support, coupled with non 2+ dual-core support, makes it a non-choise for many with newer machines unfortunetly), then a seperate Win2k fork could be made there also, if the interest was available.
  8. Well, the good news is that HFSLIP is both Open-Source + written in plain cmd syntax, which makes modifications/additions much eassier to be made, and to a much larger audience, than if e.g. written in C/C++. Now you guys just need someone who will be willing to host and support this project, and in the mean time, whenever an update fails to slipstream, then someone willing and in the know, could post the diff, for others to incorporate. To be honest, then I have full understanding for if getting tired of a project and hence, quitting it, but my oppenion is just that if wanting/exspecting to get payd for your work, then don't release freeware, and if not wanting to answer stupid license questions, then just don't give out your mail-adress, and ignore dumbass forum-posters etc. Btw, the thread-title is a little of IMHO, as there's nothing illegail with distributing hfslip, in contrary to bootlegs, but that's just nitpicking i know. Just my 2 cents.
  9. Switched from Windows to Arch Linux.

  10. From looking at it's feature-list, then it dosen't appear to support file-placement optimization(but does consolidate free-space however) and so based on that, then I would personally preffer MyDefrag over defraggler, but that's just my oppenion.
  11. A couple of posts above yours, then nh_wzg stated: the "TXT & LAY" he's reffering about is: txtsetup.sif and layout.inf.
  12. You're most welcome, mate! Well, since FDV haven't replied yet, then I have just quickly glanced at a wordpad.inf file I found on the net(i've changed to GNU/Linux and isn't using Windows anymore), and from that then I can see that you also needs to uncomment 'write.exe' from layout.inf/txtsetup.sif, as else wordpad.inf will fail to launch, since it needs that file. If it still dosen't work after a reinstall(use a VM e.g. VirtualBox), then open sysoc.inf from '%windir%\INF' and remove the 'HIDE' from the 'MSWordpad' entry you uncommented earlier and then see if you can install it from add/remove Windows components... Good luck
  13. Yes, but it should also be in "%programfiles%\Windows NT\Accessories". Are you sure that you uncommented the 'wordpad.*' files in txtsetup.sif/layout.inf + the 'wordpad' entry in sysoc.inf? This would make the OC manager run wordpad.inf during install, which copies the files to their needed destination and makes the shortcuts and file-associations... If you've done that, then i'm affraid it's out of my reach, and you'll have to wait for FDV to ellaborate further.
  14. Untill fdv replies, then i believe for adding wordpad back-in you'd uncomment these from layout.inf/txtsetup.sif: ;wordpad.chm = 1,,,,,,,,3,3 ;wordpad.exe = 1,,,,,,,,3,3 ;wordpad.hlp = 1,,,,,,,,3,3 ;wordpad.inf = 1,,,,,,,20,0,0 And uncomment this line from sysoc.inf: ;MSWordPad=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,wordpad.inf,,7 Then for removing notepad i believe you'd comment out these from layout.inf/txtsetup.sif: notepad.exe = 1,,,,,,,1,0,0 ; where it really lives notepad.exe = 1,,,,,,,2,0,0 ; put a second copy here notepad.lnk = 1,,,,,,,,3,3 ;new And comment out this line from syssetup.inf: %notepad% = notepad.exe,notepad.exe,,0,%notepad_infotip% About scripten.exe, then since i couldn't find it in the Win2k update-list, then i searched the hfslip-changelog and found this:
  15. With xable's pack there's nothing "useless" left. xhelper.exe and xudpack.inf is automatically removed and even the xudpack.inf entry in sysoc.inf is also removed post-install(nLite dosen't even do that for it's nlite.inf). That pack is very "cleanly" made! Yes, xable's pack brings an Xp-SP3 source completelly up-to-date with all high-priority updates, except IE8 and WGA(but WGA can be added with xable's WGA addons). If you need IE8 there are slipstream addons available from other parties(search).
