  1. Hopefully so, but it's only been ten months and...
  2. Obviously this should be merged with the existing thread, since it concerns exactly the same subject matter.
  3. Intel Solid-State Drive Toolbox version 3.3.7.
  4. I uninstalled KB2973115, after which KB2756918 finally installed (no more repeating loop-install). Thank you for the information, and for what was a simple and effective solution. I have not reinstalled KB2973115, as it appears (?) that you have. I’m holding off on this because it is a server (not XP) update, and I wonder if our use of .net updates that are not XP-specific may be the source of our .net install loop problems, which I have experienced on about ¼ of my XP machines going back eight months now.
  5. At a command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER: start devmgmt.msc Once you are in Device Manager, go to the View menu and choose Show Hidden Devices, which will show all the device drivers including things that aren’t currently installed in your computer.
  6. I’ve now tested on XP by installing the three Office updates via the yellow shield, then running Microsoft Update--it worked, no more endless scanning, and MU installed the other updates through the browser. After the Office Updates, I did reboot both the W2k and XP machines before testing MU, so when I get a chance on another machine, I’ll try it without the reboot (the Office Updates per se don’t require a reboot, I just happened to do it). EDIT: No reboot required.
  7. I think you may have it. Manually installing the cumulative IE8 did not fix the “forever updating” problem on XP for me, either. Microsoft Update on Windows 2000 Professional gave me the same problem, so I waited for the update globe to appear in the tray, and ran the three Office updates that way; afterward, MU on W2k Pro worked just fine and timely.
  8. Maybe you could test with a flash drive that has never been introduced to Windows 10.
  9. He is amazing, that’s for sure, and it’s good you were able to install his new kernel on top of your UUR, as sometimes that can be problematic. And maybe, just maybe, a new UUR is in the offing…another something to look forward to in the season of hope.
  10. This has been discussed in the W2k SP5 thread and the KernelEx thread; it’s possible that you need BWC KernelEx 2.8h or newer, but do check out the info for yourself, as it’s not something I’ve had the opportunity to deal with myself just yet. Solution:
  11. I don't think so; at any rate, Fernando has good information here:
  12. I tested Flash Beta with Google Chrome Portable; all is well:
  13. Reporting that the update experience has been unusual here on three-for-three machines so far… MU runs and runs, so I leave it once the yellow shield pops up, or I just wait for the yellow shield in the first place. Then, hovering over the yellow shield shows 0% download progress indefinitely (defined as when my patience runs out). So I reboot, and find the downloads are ready to install. I install them, after which all is well, apparently, so far. EDIT: Fourth machine, no such anomaly. EDIT: Fifth machine, same anomaly, but this was a W2k Pro machine, otherwise not pertinent here, except that it only involved the Office update... So maybe the XP update quirk stems from the Office update.
  14. I adapted your approach to Google Chrome Portable, and it worked. I have Chrome (full version) on another machine, so I copied pepflashplayer 32_23_0_0_185.dll from that installation, renamed it pepflashplayer.dll, and swapped it into Chrome Portable 49.0.2623.112, as before, in the two places indicated here (as usual I did nothing with manifest.json): GoogleChromePortable\App\Chrome-bin\49.0.2623.112\PepperFlash GoogleChromePortable\Data\profile\PepperFlash The Flash site confirms installed. Thank you for the information.
  15. Apparently blackwingcat has attempted a fix, but to no avail. He posted on his blog that support has been cut for pre-Vista or Win 7 operating systems (not sure of the translation), either of which obviously rules out XP.
