  1. The File-Checker (HFSLIPFC) for HFSLIP

    I have no idea which update brings the 10.x.DLLs on the system. Do you?I think I reactivate this update for WMP9... Hmmm... Hi all, I think this is an HFSLIP (1.7.9. & 1.7.10. beta x) problem, which does not properly handle the WMP multiple updates in respect of WMP9. You can see also this post (http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/142829-missing-ieshimsdll-werdll/page__view__findpost__p__916989), referring to KB973540, but the problem (in my experience) is common to all WMP multiple updates. For now, the only way I could solve this problem was to put all WMP multiple updates in in \HFSVCPACK_SW1 folder. Ciao Lions
  2. Missing IESHIMS.DLL & WER.DLL

    Hi brutus1234, I had the same problem some time ago, and I discovered it was caused by "WindowsXP-WindowsMedia-KB973540-x86-ITA.exe". Maybe HFSLIP 1.7.9. & 1.7.10. beta x do not correctly handle this update in respect of WMP9: at the end of the slipstreaming process (XP PRO SP3 "clean", IE6, WMP9, security updates only), I noticed that in SOURCESS\i386 folder, the files WMP.DLL and WMPDXM.DLL (contained in KB973540) are updated to version 10, not 9. So, after installation, they are not recognized as components of WMP9, which refuses to start. Problem solved putting KB973540 in \HFSVCPACK_SW1 (or, alternatively, to recover the existing installation, by extracting files for v. 9 and overwriting existing ones in \SYSTEM32\DLLCACHE and \SYSTEM32 folders of the installed XP). Ciao Lions
  3. Windows Updates

    Hi all, I would give my little contribution to keep updated Windows 2000 list: 1) KB926121 (Remote Installation Services - RIS) is an optional component. If RIS is not installed, the update gives an error message... 2) KB926122 has been replaced by KB934484 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS08-003.mspx), wich has been replaced by KB949014 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms08-035.mspx). So, only KB949014 (currently missing) should be included in the list. 3) KB937894 has been replaced by KB951071 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS08-065.mspx) 4) KB941569 is listed twice. 5) Security and optional updates missing from the list: -KB941644 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms08-001.mspx) -KB950760 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS08-032.mspx), NOT replaced by KB9353839 -KB953839 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/953839.mspx) -KB957280 (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS08-060.mspx) -WindowsRightsManagementServicesSP2-KB917275-Client-XXX-x86.EXE (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917275/en-us) Ciao
  4. Hi peter and Smiley89, What kind of problem do you have with the direct integration of the MSI 4.5 update in a clean SOURCE? In my case, direct integration was almost perfect: in a "real" XP installation, I had no problems, and the installer worked perfectly..... (Office 2003, Nero 6x, CorelDraw X3, PerfectDisk and other software installed successfully, without any warning or error message!). The only "imperfections" that I noticed, are: 1) a different name of the Service: MSIServer instead of Windows Installer, as normally happens (but MSIServer is the TRUE name of the service); 2) lack of the service description. The reason for this is that direct integration fails to include some information of "localization". More specifically, these two string values, "Description" and "DisplayName", doesn't get added to the Windows registry, in the keys: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet(ControlSet001, ControlSet002....)\Services\MSIServer But, again, these problems are purely cosmetic, because (at least in my case) the MSI service works perfectly. I think that they can be easily solved by creating a specific REG file to be included in the HFSVCPACK folder, in the same way as for the KB956391. Edit 1: Here is a REG file that solves the above problems (it is for the Italian language, but it can be easily edited, replacing strings in any other language). WindowsXP_KB942288_v3_x86.reg Edit 2 Many thanks, peter, for the good suggestion: Problem solved by creating a TimeZone.CMD file, and inserting it in HFGUIRUNONCE folder. Ciao
  5. I am not sure for the English version, but for the Italian one is required: and here for some infos about problems related to this update: Ciao Lions
  6. Hi all and thank you, Tomalak, for the very useful work you're doing. I'm a (very) happy user of HFSLIP (and nLite), and I would give my little contribution to overcome these difficult times due to the absence of our favorite "guru" . Following your instructions and adopting a hybrid solution (using HFSLIP to integrate some of the updates, and NLITE for the remainder), I managed to get a fully functional and updated Windows XP SP 3 (Italian) installation CD. I state first that my goal was to get a "clean", "lightweight" and updated installation, for use in my workstation, and then I was not interested in the integration of IE7, WMP11, Messenger and the corresponding updates. So, I'm referring to a Windows XP PRO (CORP) SP3 (ITA), with IE6 SP1, default WMP, Windows Messenger removed (via nLite). Furthermore, no WGA, no WGA Notifications, no Roots Certificate Update slipstreamed (because in the past I have experienced that the integration of these files can create problems when you upgrade an existing installation). This was my path: 1) Fisrt of all, I made the direct integration of the Windows Installer 4.5 update into my installation SOURCE files, via the /integrate switch (KBArticleNumber /integrate:path); 2) Then, I used HFSLIP v1.7.8 (with the "NoKillBits=YES" and "DRIVERCOMP=F" options in HFANSWER.INI) to integrate the following updates: [b]Files in HF folder[/b]: directx_aug2008_redist.exe msxml4-KB936181-ita.exe windows-kb890830-v2.3.exe windowsupdateagent30-x86.exe WindowsXP-KB898461-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB950762-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB950974-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB951066-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB951376-v2-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB951698-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB951748-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB952954-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB954211-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB956390-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB956391-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB956803-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB956841-x86-ITA.exe WindowsXP-KB957095-x86-ITA.exe [b]Files in HFCABS folder[/b]: IEAWSDC.CAB MUAuth.cab muweb_site.cab OGAControl.cab opuc4.cab SWFLASH.CAB (v10.0.12.36, jimmsta package) wbemoc.cab [b]Files in HFSVCPACK folder[/b]: KB956391.REG (Special REG file for ActiveX killbits update) [b]Files in HFSVCPACK_SW1 folder[/b]: WindowsXP-KB951072-v2-x86-ITA.exe (Time Zone) 3) Finally, I used nLite (v1.4.9.1, Unattended Setup, UnattendMode = 5 "PROMPT REPAIR") to integrate the following (Security and NON Security) updates: WindowsXP-KB938464-x86-ITA.exe (GDI+, not properly integrated with HFSLIP, at least for the ITA ver.) WindowsXP-KB951830-x86-ITA.exe (DNS) WindowsXP-KB951978-x86-ITA.exe (VBS-JS) WindowsXP-KB952287-x86-ITA.exe (MDAC) WindowsXP-KB953155-x86-ITA.exe (Windows Internet Printing Service, not properly integrated with HFSLIP) WindowsXP-KB954708-x86-ITA.exe (XMP) Result: a perfect XP PRO SP3 CD, usable for new installations as well as to upgrade existing ones (fully tested) and, in both cases, MS Updates says that there are no updates required (except for those not slipstreamed, i.e. WGA, WGA Notification and Roots Certificate). Up to now, after two days of tests, the only "cosmetic" problem I noticed concerns the TimeZone update: after installation, my system had, as default, the local time of "Kabul"(!?!?) , that I had to manually correct. Ciao Lions
  7. I have tried only in unattended mode (in v. 1.7.2. was almost perfect....). Two tests for each version, STD and PRO. In the first case, with STD version, I had a different fault: in the middle of the setup an error message told me that the installation via "transform.mst" is not supported (strangely, because I had no problems and I have run smoothly from an admin install created with Slipstreamer v1.6.2). Ok for the test version. Ciao
  8. Hi mara-, bad news, sorry... Unlike the previous version, with v1.7.3. there is no way, for me, to complete an unattended setup of Office 2003 Pro. The installation is interrupted almost at the end, with an error message: "Impossible to complete MS Office setup".... reporting the problem to Microsoft... In Event Viewer there is an "Event ID: 5000" - Office 11 Setup, containing the following information: P1 : (90110410-6000-11d38cfe-0150048383c9) P2 : 11.0.8173.0 P3 : iscachelockedfeaturestates P4 : 0 P5, 6, 7 : x Office 2003 setup(0001).txt says: "Successfully launched MsiExec.... 16/09/2008 21.29.11 Chained install return code: 1603 Exit code was an error.

  9. Hi mara-, Not a real failure, but only an error message box that appears at the end of the installation process, which is completed successfully and without problems: Office is installed and configured correctly, with all my personal settings activated and functioning properly. The error message is generated by REGEDIT, right at the end of the setup, when HOTFIXES.REG should be added to the registry. Only THIS operation fails, and the registry does not get updated. After adding manually HOTFIXES.REG (doubleclicking on it) and after a healthy reboot, MS Update says I still need these 3 "obsolete" updates: KB955434 (OLK FLT, August versione replaced by Sept. ver.), KB950241 (WORD, 05/13/2008 ver., replaced) KB943985V2 (EXCEL 03/19/2008 ver., replaced) Those hotfixes are not on your (and mine) list of updates, because they were replaced by newer hotfixes. I did a Direct Slipstream using version 1.7.2 with SP3 and the 15 hot fixes of your list of updates, adding the 3 new updates of September, and removing older version of the Outlook Filters. I made three tests, all with the same result. After installing the 3 updates reported, MS Update was happy and said "no updates available". Ciao Lions
  10. Hi mara-, Italian translation updated for v1.7.x. italian.zip Tested v1.7.2. (MSO 2003 PRO + SP3 + updates list + 09/09/2008 updates), in direct slipstream + my TRANSFORM.MST, and I'm having two little problems: 1) missing HOTFIXES.REG in local MSOCACHE, generating a REGEDIT error: Failed to import file X:\MSOCACHE\....\SETUP\hotfixes.reg (manually added) 2) WU missing Hotfixes: KB955434 (OLK FLT, 08/12/2008 UPDATE), KB950241 (WORD, 05/13/2008 UPDATE) and KB943985V2 (EXCEL 03/19/2008 UPDATE). 2008_09_10_17.49.11_log.zip Ciao Lions
  11. Italian Language translation updated (05/30/2008). Ciao italian_lng_Updated_05_30_2008_version.rar
  12. Hi mara-, here i am. Updated italian.lng (05/20/2005). Two small cosmetic problems: 1) missing label "Save Product Key now" in english.lng (and then, of course, in translation); 2) Italian translation would require 2 or 3 more pixels in the "Organization" label of the "Slipstreamer" Tab (Sorry, but we have no shorter synonymous.....). Also, i had some problems in synthesizing translation of the "Info" box in the "Outlook Attachment Unblocker" tab. 1 or 2 more rows would be very comfortable, if it were possible. Tested v1.6 Beta 4 on a Office 2003 STD ed. (previously bypassed....), and everything went perfectly. Ciao Lions italian_lng_Updated_05_20_2008_version.rar
  13. Hi mara-, Italian Language translation updated (05/14/2008). Ciao Lions italian_lng_Updated_to_05_14_2008_version.rar
  14. Hi mara-, here is a new Italian Language translation, updated to the latest version of English.lng (04/05/2008). I tested Slipstreamer v. 1.5.1., and everything went OK. Thanks for your great work... Ciao Lions Office_Slipstreamer_italian_languge_Updated_to_1.5.1_version.zip
  15. Ok, here is my little contribution for those who have Italian version of Office 2003 (Professional). Ciao Lions database_reg_for_Italian_Off2K3_Post_SP3_Updates.txt
