HFSLIP used to extract it the dx9 exe into the hfcabs. Why bother checking it? Just extract it and call it a day. For xp, it's not critical that you have all those cabs there. 99% of the time, it's for gaming or for some app that needs some special dx9 binary.
I do this checks because some users here extract the cabs manually to HFCABS. And the file-cheker does the follwing things:
- If both (the dx9-redist-exe AND the manually extracted CABs) are found, than the dx9-redist-exe will be reported as wrong.
- the file-checker checks each file in HFCABs and report it as unknown, wrong or obsolete. And for that each file must be known by the file-checker to prevent that files are reported as unknown.
These CABs are inside of the dx9-redist-exe which are not copied by HFSLIP to HFCABS:
My information after reading hfslip.cmd:
Files 1 and 2: I saw in hfslip that you filter out *MDX* and so I will remove these files from the filechecker.
File 3: it's for Win 2000 - I don't put it in th file-checker
Files 4 and 6: Not used for XP with SP3 - I don't put it in the file-checker
File 5: ??? (used under specific circumstances. Needed?)
File 7: ??? (not used?)
Can you tell me something about the usage of dxdllreg_x86.cab and dxupdate.cab in HFSLIP?
