The File-Checker (HFSLIPFC) for HFSLIP

1,617 posts in this topic

What I meant is that the variables can't have spaces, I wasn't talking about the content of the variables.

The variable NAME can't have spaces in it (that's what I meant)

bye!

And yep, new flash and new script needed.

BTW, mimo, why does the script want rvkroots.exe in hfsvcpack? I slipstreamed with it in the HF folder and MU is happy, it doesn't ask for it.

How about the new version of WU, MU, Update Agent?:

Windows Update to v7.6.7600.256 (plus Windows Update Web Control v7.6.7600.257), Microsoft Update to v7.6.7600.257, Microsoft Update Catalog Web Control to v7.4.7057.249

Hi MimO,

This is version 7.6.7600.256 of WindowsUpdateAgent, created with the script of the -X-, our Patron.

The integration worked very well with HFSLIP. If it is of interest to you and other users, here is the link:

Credits for that binary go to ricktendo64 and to submix8c for the script that creates it on the fly. I just incorporated it into my UDC script.

BTW, you need to use it with the /wuforce switch to have it install the wuweb.dll .257. Otherwise you will still be prompted to install a small activeX control http://www.update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/V5Controls/en/x86/client/wuweb_site.cab?1340811078433 .

Hi Mr X,

I used this WindowsUpdateAgent with the hfslip normally and, in my testing with VirtualBox this don’t occurred. After the installation has been completed, I visited the Windowsupdate and wasn't prompted to install another activex.

Take this opportunity to thank everyone for the excellent work!

Very useful, but you have coding error RE: KB2699988. According to your XP UPDATES, different files are to be included depending upon IE version. I have INI set to check for IE8, but FC still reports the version for IE6 is needed. I have attached the INI, log and stdout for HFSLIPFC.

Maybe a bit off-topic, but I was wondering if there's a registry tweak to fool windows into thinking that the MRT has been run...any ideas?

Even though its for IE6, it's included to fix this bug..

(Empty dialog when opening 'Organize Favorites' from Windows Explorer)

It even says that in the error report.

Not anymore. WU checks for the presence of mrt.exe since about MRT version 4.0 (Sept 2011)

You used to be able to just add the guid, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/891716#13 , to suppress it.

Thanks!

So, there's no way to skip this crap, Not even unchecking it and selecting "never notify me...", because then MU tries to push the one from last month and so on...too bad.

bye!

Thx, Mimo!

I have to insist on a previous question, though: WHY does the script want rvkroots.exe in HFSVPACK??????

I slipstreamed with it in HF and MU is completely happy after installation, it DOES NOT ask for it.

Do you have an explanation?

bye!

Hi jvidal,

WHY does the script want rvkroots.exe in HFSVPACK??????

After reading these comments (1, 2) my understanding about rvkroots.exe was, that it cannot be slipstreamed by HFSLIP. And it doesn't support commandline-switches (necessary for HFSVCPACK_SW1 and HFSVCPACK_SW2) - so the only way is to put it in HFSVCPACK.

I slipstreamed with it in HF and MU is completely happy after installation, it DOES NOT ask for it.

As far as I know, it's optional (but recommended), so it will not be checked by MU/WU.

I hope I made nothing wrong - any comments appreciated! :)

It's a high-priority update.

It needs a /Q switch to install silently.

Mimo, I'm not talking about auto updates, I'm talking about entering windowsupdate.com. There, it's not required, neither as HP, nor as op. That's why I insist on this.

Please test.

btw, it's the same as with rootsupd.exe, same switches and works perfectly in HF.

bye!

Hi -X-

It's a high-priority update.

Where do you found this info?

It needs a /2Q switch to install silently.

It also installs silently when just running it w/o params. The problem is that the cmd-params doesn't fit for HFSVCPACK_SW1 and HFSVCPACK_SW2. So, for HFSLIP you have to put it to HFSVCPACK!

CU, Mimo

Hi -X-

It's a high-priority update.

Where do you found this info?

WU/MU lists 2728973 in the "important" list. It is also requested by automatic updates, it is definitely NOT optional.

It needs a /2Q switch to install silently.

It also installs silently when just running it w/o params. The problem is that the cmd-params doesn't fit for HFSVCPACK_SW1 and HFSVCPACK_SW2. So, for HFSLIP you have to put it to HFSVCPACK!

I believe you're wrong, mimo, placing rvkroots in HF works perfectly. Please test it (I did). After installation, it's not requested by neither auto updates nor by visiting windowsupdate.com and neither as important, nor as optional.

Please test it!!!

CU, Mimo

That would be cool. Have you checked the reg-keys also by yourself after installing XP? Edited by Mim0

Speaking of rvkroots.exe.

I found that the rootsupd.exe (root certificates update) is specially handled by the HFSLIP script. I guess this is why it worked when putting rootsupd.exe in HF folder.

(Line 2395-2406)

IF EXIST WORK\I386E\updroots.exe (
REN WORK\I386E\authroots.sst authroot.sst
ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\TXTSETUP.SIF authroot.sst = 1,,,,,,,998,0,0,authroots.sst&ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\DOSNET.INF d1,authroot.sst
ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\TXTSETUP.SIF delroots.sst = 1,,,,,,,998,0,0&ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\DOSNET.INF d1,delroots.sst
ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\TXTSETUP.SIF roots.sst = 1,,,,,,,998,0,0&ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\DOSNET.INF d1,roots.sst
ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\TXTSETUP.SIF updroots.exe = 1,,,,,,,998,0,0&ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\DOSNET.INF d1,updroots.exe
ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\TXTSETUP.SIF updroots.sst = 1,,,,,,,998,0,0&ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\DOSNET.INF d1,updroots.sst
ECHO>>WORK\HFSLIPCMDP1.TXT %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\updroots.exe %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\authroots.sst
ECHO>>WORK\HFSLIPCMDP1.TXT %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\updroots.exe %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\updroots.sst
ECHO>>WORK\HFSLIPCMDP1.TXT %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\updroots.exe -l %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\roots.sst
ECHO>>WORK\HFSLIPCMDP1.TXT %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\updroots.exe -d %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\delroots.sst
)

However the script does nothing to handle rvkroots.exe.

EDIT: I found a bug in the code above. The script does not slipstream these registry entries that will be added after applying rootsupd.exe.

EDIT2: It's not a bug. Sorry, my mistake.

Double post. Because I've made a patch to support rvkroots.exe update in the HF folder.

The patch is this:

Replace line 2395-2406 of hfslip-1.7.10_beta_J_v9.cmd with the following code

IF EXIST WORK\I386E\updroots.exe (
IF EXIST WORK\I386E\authroots.sst (
REN WORK\I386E\authroots.sst authroot.sst
ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\TXTSETUP.SIF authroot.sst = 1,,,,,,,998,0,0,authroots.sst&ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\DOSNET.INF d1,authroot.sst
ECHO>>WORK\HFSLIPCMDP1.TXT %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\updroots.exe %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\authroots.sst
)
IF EXIST WORK\I386E\delroots.sst (
ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\TXTSETUP.SIF delroots.sst = 1,,,,,,,998,0,0&ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\DOSNET.INF d1,delroots.sst
ECHO>>WORK\HFSLIPCMDP1.TXT %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\updroots.exe -d %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\delroots.sst
)
IF EXIST WORK\I386E\roots.sst (
ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\TXTSETUP.SIF roots.sst = 1,,,,,,,998,0,0&ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\DOSNET.INF d1,roots.sst
ECHO>>WORK\HFSLIPCMDP1.TXT %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\updroots.exe -l %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\roots.sst
)
IF EXIST WORK\I386E\disallowedcert.sst (
REN WORK\I386E\disallowedcert.sst rvkcert.sst
ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\TXTSETUP.SIF rvkcert.sst = 1,,,,,,,998,0,0&ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\DOSNET.INF d1,rvkcert.sst
ECHO>>WORK\HFSLIPCMDP1.TXT %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\updroots.exe -l -u %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\rvkcert.sst
)
ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\TXTSETUP.SIF updroots.exe = 1,,,,,,,998,0,0&ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\DOSNET.INF d1,updroots.exe
IF EXIST WORK\I386E\updroots.sst (
ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\TXTSETUP.SIF updroots.sst = 1,,,,,,,998,0,0&ECHO>>SOURCESS\I386\DOSNET.INF d1,updroots.sst
ECHO>>WORK\HFSLIPCMDP1.TXT %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\updroots.exe %%SYSTEMROOT%%\HFSLIP\updroots.sst
)
)

And the rvkroots.exe will work in the HF folder when running HFSLIP.

Seriously, without this patch, HFSLIP will (unintentionally) fool the slipstreamed Windows, thinking that the update was installed successfully.
