About Explorer09

  1. Yes my solution makes a post-installer rather than integrate them directly to WinXP CD. For me there is some reason to keep the old IE6, and the post-installer can be used to upgrade the existing Windows XP installation (with IE6 or IE7) to IE8. I use java because it's convenient to write. I wish it could be ported to C but no idea how to start.
  2. Using hacked DLLs is not one of my goals.
  3. Mimo doesn't seem to update his list for two months. Should I give a quick summary of what's changed?

  4. You all can read this: Experiment of how nLite slipstream updates Because I do manual slipstreaming, and not rely on nLite or HFSLIP, so I have a basic knowledge of how slipstreaming is done. And I can tell you one thing. LAYOUT.INF cannot be modified as it was digitally signed. The Windows Setup will verify its signature. However, adding additional files to copy in TXTSETUP.SIF does work - it doesn't have to match LAYOUT.INF.
  5. If I never use these tools I would never be here. If you see some of my posts above in this thread, you'll see I also report HFSLIP bugs and provide list updates for Mimo who doesn't have enough time to do so. The fact that I use it doesn't mean I like it. That's it.
  6. Off-topic now. I prefer open-source solutions. And for IE8 I already made up my own solution. For .NET, I can't.
  7. First IE security flaw after Windows XP goes EOL. Now blame Microsoft for not open-sourcing their IE6 or IE8 browsers. http://consumerist.com/2014/04/29/microsoft-has-yet-to-issue-a-fix-for-major-internet-explorer-security-flaw/ http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/04/27/oops_we_did_it_again_microsoft_warns_of_ie_zero_day/ EDIT: Congratulations that I was wrong. MS does release an update for XP this time. Windows XP KB2964358 | MS14-021 | mshtml.dll (IE) | 42591 42588 | None
  8. I don't like them either. .NET Installers eat up my disk space unnecessarily. And when I tried to refresh the update lists, I often complain something like, "d*mn Micro$oft, why don't you merge KB2894843 and KB2901111 updates together?" And because they release the updates in MSP packages (and digitally signed), it's almost impossible for me to merge two update packages together, or merge the updates with the installer. (This never happens in Linux software packaging, AFAIK. In Debian/Ubuntu, updating software means just installing a newer .deb package over an old one, and package maintainers often update the whole set of deb packages for that software.)
  9. If you guys just want new XP updates released between February 2014 and April 2014, I have my own list for you to see the differences.

  10. Here you are. The Last batch of Windows XP updates. I'll make my last slipstreamed Windows XP CD and then say goodbye to XP. Windows XP KB2936068 | MS14-018 | IE | 42431 42436 | replaces KB2925418 in MS14-012 KB2922229 | MS14-019 | kernel32.dll | 42329 | replaces KB2758857 in MS12-081 Malicious Software Removal Tool APSB14-09 | Adobe Flash Player 13.0.0.182 Office 2003 KB2878303 | MS14-017 | WINWORD | 42408 | replaces KB2863866 in MS14-001 KB2878299 | MS14-020 | MSPUB | 42403 | replaces KB2810047 in MS13-042 No OUTLFLTR update for Outlook 2003 this month (but there is one for Outlook 2007). The attached files are the list of updates for Office 2003 and 2007 that are offered by Microsoft Update. The list are in CSV format - you can open them in Excel or write a downloader script that parses these tables. office2003-update-list-zh-TW.csv.txt office2007-update-list-en-US.csv.txt office2007-update-list-zh-TW.csv.txt
  11. I got the direct download links for the d*mn KB2934207 update (a.k.a. the EOL notification): ENU: http://download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/software/crup/2014/03/windowsxp-kb2934207-x86-enu_a47ce3bac240b6d955918ffdeef415a32fec6681.exe CHT: http://download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/software/crup/2014/03/windowsxp-kb2934207-x86-cht_da85abcaba046a34d222f8a005625b4ad404c5ad.exe In case someone needs this. That's it.
  12. I've added KB931125 to my list already. As for KB2934207, it didn't offer to me when I checked it, so I don't know what to do. Can anyone who got this update provide a direct download link so I can do some experiment to it? (Just use Wireshark to get the HTTP packets and grab the URL from inside them.)
  13. I would better avoid the KB2934207 update, or find a registry workaround for that. Like MSRT, it's not worth slipstreaming. (http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=113436)
  14. The KB2935092 time zone update does not seem to appear in the Windows Update list. It should be a hotfix, I think. Anyway, March 2014 Patch Tuesday - 1 month before Windows XP and Office 2003 go EOL. That means, the Patch Tuesday next month will be the last one for Windows XP, and we will say goodbye then. KB2925418 | MS14-012| IE | 42219 42207 | replaces KB2909921 in MS14-010 KB2929961 | MS14-013 | qedit.dll | 42113 | replaces KB2845187 in MS13-056 KB2930275 | MS14-015 | win32k.sys | 42101 | replaces KB2893984 in MS13-101 (Update 2014-03-13: I forgot one update.

Better hide this update rather than install it. APSB14-08 | Adobe Flash Player 12.0.0.77 No updates for Office 2003. Not even OUTLFLTR update (but there is one for Outlook 2007).
  15. February 2014 Patch Tuesday - 2 months before Windows XP and Office 2003 go EOL. Windows XP KB2916036 | MS14-005 | msxml3.dll | 41715 | See below KB2909921 | MS14-010 | IE | 41861 41893 | replaces KB2898785 in MS13-097 KB2909212 | MS14-011 | vbscript.dll (5.7) | 41766 | Does NOT replace KB2510581 KB2909210-IE8 | MS14-011 | vbscript.dll (5.8) | 41833 | See below Flash Player 12.0.0.44 APSB14-04 Note: The KB2757638 + KB2916036 updates together replace KB2719985. (For x86) The KB2632503-IE8 + KB2909210-IE8 updates together replace KB2510531-IE8. (For x86) No Office updates this month (not even OUTLFLTR update), as far as I know.
