Windows Updates

mim0, MuppetHunter, or anybody ho knows it..

I found another mismatch in those lists you maintain.

The Cumulative Time Zone Update KB979306 have to be placed in HFSVCPACK_SW1\ folder according to list at vorck.com, and into HF\ folder according to mim0's list.

Which destination folder is correct?

Look at this post.

Tomalak gave the hint that it works also in HF.

So I think both folders are correct.

But for me, HF is the preferred place (when possible) because files are slipstreamed. At HFSVCPACK_SW1 the software is "just" installed at T13.

Thank you fellas for all your replies.

I found that selfextracting directx_feb2010_redist.exe contains .cab files for both x86 and for x64 platform. Slipstreaming such a package into 32bit Windows installation CD makes little sense.

I plan to extract this redist.exe, then delete *x64* files and repack it (by 7zip) into new selfextracting archive. It will be roughly half the size of the multiplatform redist.exe. Of course, I will include the rest of the files besides the *x86* (setup.exe, dsetup.dll, dsetup32.dll) into the new selfextracting archive.

Will such a x86-only stripped down version work?

Shortly after posting my previuos post, I noticed the remark in mim0's list:

When you extract it manually to HFCABS, use all files MonthYear_*_x86.cab, except for *mdx* (see here).

Well, so extracting the MonthYear_*_x86.cab files (and no one other) into HFCABS\ folder is the working solution? Or besides MonthYear_*_x86.cab some others are also required in the HFCABS ?

For Windows XP you have to include only MonthYear_*_x86.cab in HFCABS. For Windows 2000 you have to include also BDANT.cab and dxnt.cab.

I would remove KB979332. It's not part of a stock XP. Some encoder needs to be installed for that update to be relevant.

Guys,

I have the vanilla XP SP3 install media and want to make it up-to-date. Do I need to slipstream both of these patches:

- msxml6-KB973686-XXX-x86.exe (MSXML 6.0 Service Pack 2)

- WindowsXP-KB973687-x86-XXX.exe (Update for Windows XP (MSXML3 & MSXML6))

M$'s KB article states, that KB973686 is only for Win XP SP2.

KB973687 brings MSXML3 to version 8.100.1051.0 and MSXML6 to version 6.20.1103.0.

KB973686 updates MSXML6 again - to version 6.20.2003.0.

Both updates are worth to use.

Hi

I guess, if you have SP3 in, you don't need a fix for SP2. (?)

(Edit)

I'm Sorry if I caused confusion. MimO already gave the (not too obvious) better answer.

MimO, thanks a lot for your list and the great file checking tool!

kind regards

Eveline

Well-spotted NLZ! I'll make sure that's fixed for the next patch Tuesday (in just over a week). Thanks for reporting it.

That's strange... I'm going to slipstream your updates today. And see if something is missing. ;)

I will reply asap.

Good job on your xp updates... I was wondering... do you have a filechecker for Windows 2000?

I'm going to make a final Windows 2000 Slipstream... because it's support is going to end in two days...

Let's see what can be done. ;)

...

For W2K, Parseus offers an extension: HFSLIPFC-2K. Put this file also in the HFSLIP-folder, fill the SOURCES-folder with W2K and start the file-checker. If you have an older INI, rename your current hfslipfc.ini and let hfslipfc create a new INI. There are some other options for W2K :)
