  1. I do not really know anything about the driver and probably will not have time to do any tests I have been kind of busy recently so at the moment I am trying to speed up my website a little bit and then add the remaining XP POSReady updates.
  2. I just want to say that the Add/Remove error cannot come from the .NET Framework addons because they were added only very recently (2016-08-22 to be specific) and the original post is dated 2016-08-15. I do not have any such issues in my installation (where all the updates, hotfixes and other files listed on my site are included).
  3. It is good to know that although I hope BlackWingCat will ultimately come out with a permanent solution to this problem . I personally have not been able to follow the KernelEx thread and in order to catch up would probably have to re-read at least the last few pages. I do not have much time to spend on the Windows 2000 related stuff so I want first to finish adding all the new XP/2003 updates to the Updates Lists, and improve the website itself. After that I hope to update UURollup too with the newer files from BlackWingCat. I am not sure whether concrt140.dll is required. Does it show up in red in Dependency Walker? I cannot check right now but I think it was yellow, and the executable should work without it anyway. The missing dependencies in ole32.dll are definitely a problem though.
  4. I have just very briefly checked the Firefox Nightly files with Dependency Walker and a few dependencies seem to be missing. That could be the reason why it does not start. Later I may try to compare them with those from a working release of Firefox to see what the differences are.
  5. You are right but technically Firefox ESR is a specialised release of the browser. Mozilla describes it as follows. It is not advertised as a browser for general use and most computer users have no idea it even exists. The problem is that even if you do decide to use Firefox ESR for now, we still need to get the Firefox Nightly issue fixed because the current branch of Firefox ESR will not be supported for ever. I am also wondering whether it is the UI or the engine to cause the problem. If it is the former then SeaMonkey or Palemoon could also be considered a viable alternative (especially the first one since it uses exactly the same engine as Firefox).
  6. Let us hope then that BlackWingCat will do something about this issue . There is still time as the current stable version of Firefox is 48.
  7. I have added a few XP updates / hotfixes to the Updates Lists and removed one obsolete update. Please check the changelog for details. I have also updated the HFSLIP2000-FullPack accordingly. @Hackeronte I am getting the same error with my HFSLIP2000 build and BlackWingCat's extended core and kernel installed. If possible, someone please test if the Firefox Nightly 51 runs in Windows XP.
  8. It does not always work. 1. Hit Enter. 2. Hit Backspace. 3. Hit Enter + Shift. The result is going two lines down.
  9. I also find this quite annoying as quoting only one post often makes no sense without the previous replies. You can still insert the older ones manually but it is quite troublesome and takes much more time than just quoting everything at once. I wonder whether that notification was really supposed to be black . At the moment it is kind of useless as you are unable to read the text in there... I have also experienced problems in Palemoon when writing posts and hitting the ENTER key to insert a new line. It is very difficult to go to the next line without a line break.
  10. 1. You are right about the BWC driver. I thought the URL was posted in this thread but now I see that I actually received it from the OP by a PM. The link to the driver is with the current version being 2. By FullPack I really meant just a fully updated Windows 2000 source, with no unofficially modified kernel files added. Also, when it comes to the FullPack, there is always only one release available at a given time as I keep updating the package without changing the URL. In this case I meant the release as of 2016-08-22. 3. As far as I understand, the OP only tested the Fernando's driver and not the BlackWingCat's one.
  11. I do not think that you need any extended kernel files for the BlackWingCat's driver. I have not tested it on a real hardware but the driver files themselves are from 2009 and seem to be compatible with Windows 2000. As far as I can see, only the INF files have been modified, probably to add additional hardware IDs. I have just tried to integrate the driver using nLite and there is indeed a problem in the very beginning: which leads to the TXTSETUP.SIF file where the invalid line states: = "Intel(R) 7 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller" After removing the line the installer seems to work fine though . My test configuration was just my HFSLIP2000-FullPack with all the official updates and hotfixes slipstreamed but without any unofficial kernel extensions.
  12. I have updated the site again today! This is an important update as I have reintroduced several unofficial updates to the lists (apart from adding a few other regular / XP updates). I have more updates to add on my to-do list but have not had enough time to process them yet. You can check the changelog for details. The HFSLIP2000-FullPack.7z has also been updated accordingly. As always, you can find it in the Download Archive in the Windows2000/USP5 folder. Not really, except for some minor fixes . The site is still loading slowly simply because the code has grown massively in the recent months. I will probably need to rewrite (simplify) some of the code to really visibly improve the current state but I need more time to work on it. At the moment Opera 12 seems to load the site fastest due to its superior table rendering. Thank you for your continuing support! It is good to hear that Firefox is working for you as in my case the browser freezes for several seconds while trying to load the site... I rely mostly on Chrome (actually SRWare Iron) and Opera 12 when testing it on my desktop as the two are much, much faster. Of course, I am only talking about the Updates page as the main page is very lightweight and quick to load .
  13. I would really suggest not using Windows Update after a Windows 2000 installation that has been based on the updates lists from my website. The reason is that there are many hotfixes, Windows XP updates, etc. which replace older official M$ updates. Yet, Windows Update will likely try to still apply those replaced updates which in the worst case may overwrite the newer files. I really have to ask - how have you downloaded all those files? You have things like windows2000-kb891861-x86-enu.exe instead of Windows2000-KB891861-v2-x86-ENU.exe, no hotfixes, no Windows XP updates, and even many regular updates missing in your installation. Just by looking at the log file I can see many potential issues in such a partial installation. Please remember that the updates, hotfixes and all the other files listed on my site are often interconnected and should be used together. No-one can predict what will happen if you decide to only apply some of the updates.
  14. I am not sure I will be able to help as I only do my testing with a full (non-modified) version of the FullPack where all the updates, hotfixes and other files listed on my site are included . I can guarantee that everything works correctly with such a full installation. However, in case of a customised installation like yours it is really difficult to deduct what the problem may be about. With my limited time, I am not able to do any other type of testing except for the full installation which means all updates, all hotfixes and all other packages slipstreamed. Because of that, the FullPack includes everything from the Updates Lists. As for Windows Update related files, they are not included on purpose simply because they are not needed (as long as all the updates and hotfixes have been slipstreamed).
  15. I have checked your log file. Are you sure that you have the right version of the HFSLIP2000-FullPack? There are plenty of updates missing from your HFSLIP folders. I would suggest to download the current release of the FullPack from my download Archive (located in the Windows2000/USP5 folder), unpack it, add your Windows 2000 source to the SOURCE folder and run the script. Also, do not delete any files from the FullPack folder and make sure that your source is clean because at the moment in your log file you have CDTAG - Undefined which normally should be CDTAG - CDROM_NT.5 meaning that file file is probably missing. If you are not sure which files are needed you can always just copy all files from your Windows 2000 CD to the SOURCE folder.
