  1. (KernelEx4.5.2+w98/w98se+ie6sp1+firefox3.6.28) Found the cause and fixed! First, Firefox's crash reporter hijacked normal crash report, and unfortunately didn't do its job. Set environment variable MOZ_CRASHREPORTER_DISABLE=1 to disable that and ran firefox to reveal the real culprit -> crash on usp10.dll(MS uniscribe, v1.408.2600.1020,ie6sp1 for w9x) Just setting this file to use kernelex's compatibility mode causes another problem(GDI32 stack overflow) Replacing it with other versions(v1.400.2411.1->ie6sp0 or v1.325.2195.6692->w2ksp4 ie6sp1 or v1.420.2600.6421->xpsp3 security patch) seems to fix the problem without apparent side effect. Thank you Drugwash, for general troubleshooting idea. Hope this helps anyone.
  2. Hi, Really appreciating the works of all of you here. Has anyone seen this symptom before? KernelEX4.5.2+w98/w98se(kr)+ie6sp1(kr)+firefox3.6.28 -> crash on firefox firefox crashes without showing main window, just popup says like 'There is a problem on firefox : can't retrive crash dump file' All of kernelEX compatibility tab option on firefox doesn't work. Without/before installing ie6sp1, firefox 3.6.28 works well firefox Installer doesn't seem to show any error or abnormal behavior installing itself on harddisk even with ie6sp1 installed.(only resulting application - firefox - crashes when running after installation completed) Even after uninstalling ie6sp1 again, firefox crash persists ie6.0(Non sp1) doesn't seem to show this problem, but I don't have full installation file anymore. Is this a known setup not working? Would it be unique to just my language setup(kr)? Any slightest idea how to resolve or troubleshoot? Thank you
  3. I do use include and have no problems. BTW. do you install any third party software? Have you checked the startup line with Autoruns? it was a vanilla WinXP SP3 updated with the latest Mim0's file-checker, nothing in the autorun or anywhere. Like said Mim0, you have to copy KB961742-v3 to HFSVCPACK_SW1 directory, not HF. Same "My Documents" problem here. What I have found out is that if you slipstream KB961742-v3 in HFSVCPACK_SW1(perhaps with some bad interaction with other unknown fixes), for some reason registry value of "Userinit" at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon becomes not as intended(by installer). Without 961742-v3 "Userinit"="C:\Windows\system32\userinit.exe," 961742-v3 at HFSVCPACK_SW1 "Userinit"="C:\Windows\system32\userinit.exe,C:\Windows\system32\rdpinit.exe," 961742-v3 at standalone(after you've installed OS without 961742-v3 slipstreamed) "Userinit"="C:\Windows\system32\rdpinit.exe," I think that either userinit.exe or rdpinit.exe causes explorer.exe(intended as shell) to launch at logon so if you have double entry in here, one more (unwanted) windows explorer launches. To fix it, just replace that entry with correct value manually. "Userinit"="C:\Windows\system32\rdpinit.exe," I have personally verified the correctness of registry entry after I manually fixed and uninstalled KB961642-v3 after this fix. After uninstallation, this entry becomes original value "Userinit"="C:\Windows\system32\userinit.exe," regardless of manually modifying this entry, BUT YOUR MILAGE MAY VARY SO BE CAREFUL - this entry is crucial on successful launch of windows. I'm now wondering if there is a way to automatically apply registry fix after HFSVCPACK_SW1 slipstreamed 961742-v3 installs. Some help would be really appreciated;) Thanks.
