Plans for USP 5.2

41 posts in this topic

OK it is now begun Thanks to a couple of people who may wish to remain anonymous. (Unless they post so)

Here is my plans for 5.2 of the USP

LBA support

Coupla extras (Like TweakUI and 256 color Start tray icons)

WMP9

DX 9.0c

0 updates showing on MU\WU.

I do have a couple of questions for all of you though.

#1 Adminpack.msi Can I dump this since it is a fully optional use tool, it doesn't even install with windows 2000. I can keep it as a seperate download.

#2 I need some testers.

#3 Anyone still around that helped with the original pack?

I am starting over from a base sp4 so time to send me those obscure patches\hotfixes you guys have that will be needed for a complete install for you.

I would like to thank the person that sent me the compiler and the person who made the .ini .inf file optimizer for me.

You don't seem to be getting many replies, so I will volunteer to be a USP 5.2 tester, if needed.

Also you have my vote to keep adminpak as optional.

i think its just best to make the adminpack.msi an optional download. it will also save 14 megs off of USP 5.2. i wouldn't mind testing it either. im actually trying to bring a standard sp4 up to date for my work. im trying to do it with out USP 5.1 because i think it was causing some problems with the other hotfixes i was integrating.

I'll happily test it, as I was going to try and figure out (a while ago) how to remake the USP, or continue Gurglemeyer's work... I never got any further than looking into the basics of what needed to be done.

i almost have my copy of sp4 cd completely up to date. if you like i can post all the hotfixes and cab files i used if it will help you out.

Edit.

i got the sp4 cd up to date. the only updates that are there are the optional .net 1.1 and 2.0. of course once those are installed there will be updates for them.

Edit 2.

here are the hotfixes and cabs i added. i 7z the files into 3 archives here are the links

Part 1

Part 2

Thanks for the files i really appreciate it.

As of now I have DX9 fully integrating but I am getting 3 unsigned driver popups during installation.

Once I get past that part it should be no problem adding in WMP9 and the rest of the hotfixes.

Nice work! I'll happily test too although I'll only be able to test in VM if its not available soon (as I have a system I need to get up and running on win2k asap).

what drivers keep having a unsigned driver policy error and is there anything like the ignore driver siging policy that you can enable with and unattended setup or even have the usp modify the winnt.sif.

it's useless having the capability without time and sincerity on this work.

better to let this die than staining gurgelmeyer's work.

Thats why it has not been released yet.

I will not release it with flaws.

I would eagerly look forward to this as I have a barely working win2k install that badly needs a refresh.

Is the NET framework 1.1 + 2.0 with all service packs and hotfixes already in there? Because they're pretty much a must these days and need like 4 more reboots if you do them manually.

ETA: oh I see the NET issue is addressed earlier in this thread, sorry.

Sigh. It's probably time for me to give into the dark side and migrate (or at least dual boot)

to Windows XP since SP3 is out anyday now... I really dread it though.

I'm also ready to test. Bring it on. Meanwhile, is there a list of all public and support only (where you have to contact paid MS support) post unofficial SP5 hotfixes for Windows 2000? Except of course the security updates which are publicly available?

Nice effort, mate - I hope you succeed with this project of yours :)

Although personally, i would much preffer a basic pack with just all critical security/stability patches and not things like WMP, IE, tweakui etc.

Maybe a full and lite version ;)

Of course it's your project and hence, your choise :)

Anyway, glad to see you're working on this :thumbup
