Thank you MacLover for useful information and thank you BlackWingCat for these updates :)

I've prepared some new updates too.

Added:

MDAC 2.81 HBR Rollup - 950982, 960071 & 961451 combined into an update rollup

Script 5.8 (v2) - updated jscript.dll to the newest version

953024,970063 - two new HBRs as one update (files overlap each other)

959334 - a new HBR

971913 - a new HBR for MSI 3.1

2584146 - updated version of packager.exe from Jan 2012 Security Bulletin; available in 24 languages

2603381 - update from Jan 2012 Security Bulletin (registry fix only)

Removed:

960071,961451 - merged into one rollup together with 950982

Script 5.8 - replaced by Script 5.8 (v2)

Download

PS

I've also been testing MS12-006 but I think it'll be better to wait for some time before making a W2K version, just to be sure that there are no issues related to it.

I'm not sure about it at this moment but it might be necessary to put 2603381 to HFSVCPACK_SW1 when slipstreaming in HFSLIP. I'll try to test it when I've got some time.

I prepared a XPS / WIC Full Pack which is inspired by this addon originally made by Yumeyao and updated by ricktendo64. It's not the same as not all files are supported in Windows 2000 (especially the newest versions coming from W7 are usually not). I also added WIC and XPS Viewer.

Windows2000-XPSWIC-x86-Global.exe (HFSVCPACK_SW1)

WildBill's kernel is requried.

It seems that BlackWingCat has been experimenting with the kernel and CPU/RAM support difference according to the edition of Windows 2000.

I'm posting it here because I think it may be interesting, especially for WildBill.

By the way, would it be a problem to implement multi-CPU support into your kernel, WildBill?

BlackWingCat made this patch long time ago:

Add it to the to-do pile, LOL. ;)

A little update, since I've been silent for quite a while. For the past few months I've been working just about every day on getting SxS support into 2k, which would let us have all of the kernel32 .....ActCtx API routines. I *think* I'm nearing completion, but there have been so many layers to this onion I'm reluctant to say for sure. So far I had to expand the PEB and TEB structures in the kernel, expand internal timer and wait structures, upgrade how the kernel handles work items, add a ton of routines to ntdll, add a bunch to kernel32 (and upgrade even more), upgrade basesrv, add sxs.dll from the latest XP hotfix, and I'm still not done yet. At present I'm eyeball-deep in kernel32's CreateProcessInternalW, which needs to be upgraded before I can complete the internal connections in basesrv. And then, we'll see if the onion has more layers to unwrap.

So far, nothing seems to be broken per se, and 2k nicely creates and populates the WINNT\winsxs folder automatically, but Adobe Reader 9 barfs with an MSVC error. This is because it's detecting the new ActCtx routines and (now thinking it's on an XP machine) trying to create an activation context using CSRSS, which is why I have to upgrade basesrv. But I can't complete that until I upgrade CreateProcessInternalW to give basesrv the extra information it needs to do that. I have all of the extra code I need into basesrv at the moment, but the new stuff isn't connected and can't be until this kernel32 change is done.

All I can say is, thank God for ReactOS. Their source has been invaluable in figuring out some of the structures involved.

If you force install VirtualBox 3.x and 4.x , they would not work on Windows 2000.

Because it seems to depend on Shadow Image Copy Service it does not supported on Windows 2000.

So I always use VMWare Player 3.1 or Virtual PC 2005 on Windows 2000.

I didn't notice it before but VirtualBox needs two more APIs to install properly:

SETUPAPI.DLL -> SetupSetNonInteractiveMode

SETUPAPI.DLL -> SetupUninstallOEMInfW

As I said before, no rush on getting these in but it would be nice to have the ability to run VirtualBox 4.x on Windows 2000. :)

Again, keep up the great work!

Did you try BlackWingCat's setupapi.dll? I don't know if it supports those two functions, but it is probably worth a try.

http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/archives/873798.html

BWC's SETUPAPI.DLL doesn't support SetupSetNonInteractiveMode, therefore I cannot install VirtualBox 4 even with a modified MSI to allow installation on Win2k. It does have SetupUninstallOEMInfW though.

Wouldn't it be possible to (try to) transplant Shadow Image Copy Service to Windows 2000? Has anyone tried?

I still use Innotek VirtualBox 1.5.6 :P

Perhaps It requires some Kernel functions :)

I gave up before.

I used Virtualbox till 1.6.x

Strange because PAE works here (Athlon II X2 255). What's your Windows 2000 edition?

Windows 2000 Professional PL

PAE won't work in 2K Pro anyway... but still you shouldn't see any BSOD on boot because of it. Can you try in different VM (VirtualBox or MS Virtual PC)?

I'll try on Virtualbox.

Without hotfix kb2393802, Windows boot properly.

Does Windows create a minidump file? The error is occurring in strstr(), but if I can identify how it got there it might not be hard to fix. I'll remember to investigate it before posting v9.

I managed to find the official M$ version of 2347290 (the so called custom update).

It has spoolsv.exe 5.0.2195.7425.

I'll upload it later on after testing it.

I think I found the problem, though I can't really test it here. I guess we'll see what happens when I post v9...

From what I've seen online, there also looks like there's a build of shell32.dll from MS10-046 kicking around, with a version number 0f 5.0.3900.7424 and a timestamp of July 27, 2010. Only found the existence of it while Googling that version of spoolsv.exe.

I found all of them:


MS10-061_Windows2000-KB2347290-x86-custom-ENU.EXE
MS10-090_IE6.0sp1-KB2416400-Windows2000-x86-ENU.exe
MS11-002_MDAC281-KB983838-x86-ENU.exe
MS11-003_IE6.0sp1-KB2482017-Windows2000-x86-ENU.exe
MS11-006_Windows2000-KB2483185-x86-custom-ENU.EXE

All have M$ digital signatures so I'm 100% sure they're official. Still haven't got time to test them.

@EDIT

What's interesting that ex. 2483185 doesn't fix shell32.dll (as it's in case of the XP version) but it rather fixes a different file - thumbvw.dll 5.0.3900.7440.

I'll need to have a closer look at them when I've got time. I guess there might be some incompatibilties with some of the currently used unofficial updates.

Could anyone help me to filter URLs from this file?

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15391619/Windows%202000/1.txt

They seem to be dead but still it'd be nice to test all of them in wget. I've been trying with batch script


FOR /F "tokens=4 delims==" %%I IN (1.txt) DO ECHO %%I>>2.txt

but can't make a loop for unknown reason (at least unknown to me ;))
