  1. Installing XP on new motherboards.

    if it's never caused u problems than theres no reason to not try it, I think he meant theres nothing in Sp4 but basically post Sp3 hotfixes and some pos ones. So ya its easy way to get them all at once, but it compared to like other update packs like userhiddens + Pos its basically the same.
  2. Software to burn iso images

    Pls just install the XP power toy. http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/
  3. DirectX for Windows XP

    Yes and no. There is unoffical Dx 10 patch that makes a couple games work but not without mods. A lot of games may simply just refuse to run on XP even if u could theoretically get them to work. Don't know what the rules are for posting it but if u google it DX 10 XP you can find it. I personally think its a waste of time unless you have a specific game thats been tested to run.
  4. office2003-kb2878299-fullfile-enu.exe office2003-KB2878303-FullFile-ENU.exe Recently I uploaded all the hotfixes I had for Office 2003 but I am missing these 2 files. If anyone has them pls send them, thanks in advance.
  5. These are very rare files that I am posting, MS has gone out of their way to make them unavailable as you can no longer acquire these files that I have uploaded. I am missing 2 files. If somone can please send me. I will gladly update my pack. office2003-kb2878299-fullfile-enu.exe office2003-KB2878303-FullFile-ENU.exe You can still get them from microsoft update but those are .MSP files not fullfiles like these. Minus the 2 files above This is full list of english hotfixes for Enterprise version of 2003 office. Obviously if you don't have Access you don't install the patch for access. http://www.mediafire.com/file/uxfuac9wdc0nd6l/OFFICE_2003__HOTFIXES_VERIFIED.7z
  6. Can we at least have a mirror backup of the site? I would do it but I don't have an easy way know how to.
  7. RIP best boad ever. I guess this is permanent? if so I'm so sad. Someone please back to board up on waybackmachine pls.
  8. EWF +MinLogon on old laptop

    not by much, mini login should be used as a component of a tiny xp that includes explorer shell swaping and gutting the OS. Mini login on it own does nothing but speed up boot times and slightly reduce memory footprint of winwogin., but it also replaces the normal login behavior so things like sharing files is borked. A good shell replacement is this thing. Desktop Lite Thing. It's a very rare file that you cannot get anymore. Only works on XP. It is a minimal explorer replacement. desktoplitethingy_v1.0.1.zip
  9. I have the solution. I figured out how to fix it. This only solves the problem with XP and office 2003 With the 2007 compatibility pack. causing SVChost to redline to 100% for hours. This does not fix other installs. There is an Actual update order. I know it sounds totally ridiculous but its true. The problem is not the 2007 compatibility pack. It is the compatibility pack SP3. 1. Install clean Office with clean SP3. I haven't tested Hotfix integration into the source. 2. Run windows update and only install the office 2003 updates/ Alternatively if you have a 100% accurate list you could do it manually. 3. Now install Fileformatconverters.exe 4. Install Office 2007 compatibility pack SP3. 5. Uninstall Office Compatibility pack sp3. ( just the SP3 don't uninstall the compatibility pack.) SP3 should be below the compatibility pack when you view all updates.)**The converter pack listed above it will disappear but it's really not gone*** 6. Run windows update and install the updates for just the compatibility pack. 7. Download kb3127894, kb3203438, kb3191897 8. Install Office converter pack 2007 SP3. 9. Manually apply the 3 patches in step 7. 10. Run windows update and reapply the some of the patches patches you installed in step 4. It's not all.
  10. Jaklaz< i can reproduce it, and I can follow my own instructions, so I'm not fixing it. Fileformatconverters is the name of the office 2007 compatibility pack.

  12. I was able to delete windows installer 4.5 files and and replace them with a 3.1 installer files and add the DLL from 3.1 that is supposed to fix the redline svchost issue, Re registered them and was able to download updates, and install them still , I don't have office 2003 installed but I am gonna install office 2003 on my fully patched vm with compatibility packs and try to patch it and see if I run into issues. I'll let you know. I am curious about. Microsoft update forced me to install msiexec.exe 4.5 MSI.dll 4.5 and msihnd.dll 4.5, however it did not replace the other 2 files that I replaced msisip.dll 3.1 and msimsg.dll 3.1.
  13. Can you try to manually apply this DLL? rename to MSI.DLL I think it has something to do with windows installer 4.5 and Office/MS updates. Like that it doesn't include this fix. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/927891/you-receive-an-access-violation-error-and-the-system-may-appear-to-bec That hotfix replaces this one. maybe the fix is to downgrade MSI installer to a deprecated version. Maybe the reason that we all have this problem is because we all used the same update packs that included installer 4.5 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/916089 http://www.mediafire.com/file/a7zd9a0478r6baj/WindowsXP-KB927891.7z Last thing try to unreg the msi installer and instal 3.1 instead https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_xp-update/how-to-uninstall-updated-via-windows-installer-45/6877ba2e-6958-4fe5-a320-17b3bd87bfd4
