Plans for USP 5.2 Hail Gurgelmeyer!
Posted 28 March 2008 - 08:02 AM
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

i do really wonder what is left to do besides DX9 and WMP9
as IE 6 isn't so mutch supported anymore, and IE7 wont run ..
also i do think 2k is rather complete as it is, unless one concidered an alternative
Grafical interface, (custom explorer - and desktop - ) perhaps over the years ROS has evolved enought
at this time id recoment something based on the mozilla suite (recent version) or firefox 3 with some aditional plugins and a decent windows 2 theme. also something like a replacement of editpad (rtf) by something like abiword - witch also supports MS office filetypes...

anyway, there are not so many w2k followers anymore, so it's not really worth your effort.
i'll just make do with kurt's "up-to-date" stuff.
between kurt's and onepiece post sp4 pack, i'd prefer kurt's.
i've tried onepiece post sp4 pack and i've had these:- unsigned driver error
- some weird behaviours.
- and most importantly, my pc runs very very slow.
but if i use usp5.1 + kurt's "up-to-date";
- my pc runs faster and stable.
- no error
no offence, just to share my experience.

why not drop drivers (and driver.cab) all the way, and creating a driverpack (or set of driverpacks),
its not all to dificult and WILL safe us all quite a lot of problems,
even though at this point mostly that project (at driverpacks.net) is geared to winxp they have a verry good tutorial on how to create your own,
imho - creating such packages (and removing all non-win2k files (like win98 / xp / 2k3 etc files and comenting them (or removing) them from the ini file would still allow for driver-signing - also it would GREATLY improve default hardware support...
the process (even on win2k) is verry stable -
the sole reason i dont intend to do it myself is that i no longer run windows on any of my pc's other than my vista laptop only untill i have so time to move it too...
i Would however support any effort by others,
if you are willing and are stuck somewhere just send me a pm or so..

I just can't do it. I have spent well over 200 hours on the damned service pack. I cannot get past the unsigned drivers issue.
I would suggest using these addons here http://www.ryanvm.ne...wforum.php?f=28
Kurt aust's wonderful solution found in the sticky posts.
I have tested both quite a bit and found them both very good. If you want the bare essentials use onepieces setup and if you want to go even further then use Kurt Aust's wonderfull solution.
Once again I am very sorry...

I certainly couldn't have tried, my guide being as it is the result of trial, error and google.

when a hero sharing solutions to others finally burst into tears because of an annoying/ demanding/ self-righteous jerk, people will laugh.

Btw, what happened to gurgelmeyer? Why did he disappear? Anyone know, send me a PM.
Posted 07 April 2010 - 02:32 PM
no one really knows, consumer4beta. not even I know why gurgelmeyer vanished w/out a trace.
i guess Kelsenellenelvian's plans for USP v5.2 are completely out the window.
anyways, all support for Win2k will come to an end on july 2010 but i'm ok using the latest usp 5.1 release on my relative's old Win2k machine.
