  • You can use my HFSLIP archive for slipstreaming. It's available in the download Archive on my website in Windows2000\HFSLIP. The archive hasn't been updated for a while so there are several updates missing and it uses an older release of UURollup-v11. Still, it's probably the easiest way to slipstream both official and unofficial updates. The daily releases of UURollup-v11 are availably only as 7z archives so you can't slipstream them. You'd have to pack them to SFXCAB. The reason why I offer them only in 7z format is that 7z is much better compressible than (SFX)CAB and this way I can safe some disk space. Anyhow, you could just manually install the newest UURollup daily after the system has been installed.

  • I'd suggest slipstreaming updates using HFSLIP, testing the installation, and only after that try to use nLite for optimisation. This way you can be sure that everything works correctly after using HFSLIP.

  • You can use these true addons instead of the T-13 ones as true addons are integrated directly into the source:
    Silverlight: http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6777
    .NET 1.1: http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6717
    .NET 2.0: http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8315
    The newer .NET Frameworks are integrated in my merged .NET installer but it can't be slipstreamed (only manual installation is possible).

  • Alternatively you can use this OnePiece update pack:
    http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5326
    which covers almost all available official updates. After that you could install UR2 and UURollup manually in order to have an almost fully updated system.

  • I don't really use RunOnce. If possible I prefer to integrate everything directly into the source.
I'm sorry for such a late reply :(

By the way, I'm still struggling to finish and finally upload the new version of my website. I've been spending all my free time on it but unfortunately it takes time to sort and tidy everything up (the current code was very dirty and disorganised), unpredicted problems and issues occur, etc. My current plan is to do as much as I can in order to upload it this weekend, even if it's not 100% polished. I've already spend too much time on it and want to upload a working version as soon as possible. Smaller fixes can be added later.

Thanks for this explanation, tomasz86; I wondered why the HFSLIP package wasn’t routinely updated right along with the daily release of UURollup.

I’m really looking forward to your USP5.2, and am hoping it can be integrated using nLite just like an official service pack.  Thank you for continuing to work on Windows 2000, even as you include Windows XP.  I will continue to use both.

I'm going to update the package a little bit as there are several obsolete official updates in it. When it comes to the version of UURollup included, you're right. I wanted to include only weekly releases in the HFSLIP package for stability reasons but, as you know, I haven't been able to prepare any new weekly packages for a long time, thus the last weekly release included in the HFSLIP package is rather old now.

Thank you :) That's the whole point of the USP - one full single package for installation and slipstreaming, much easier to use than hundreds of single updates.

I'm focused on both Windows 2000 and XP (and also 2003 to less extent). I used Windows 2000 for a long time and now I'm using Windows XP but the only real difference in my case is that I can use IE8 to access several IE-only websites (they require ActiveX and don't work in IE6 properly any more, and yes, I'm required to use them so no choice for me here :( and also as I've already said before, some of them have to be used on real hardware so using a VM isn't possible). When it comes to the rest of applications I use on a daily basis, I use exactly the same programs I used to use in Windows 2000 so no difference here (except maybe for Chromium based browsers which have the Javascript bug in Windows 2000 but my main browser is Firefox so it doesn't matter that much for me anyway).

@tomasz86:

 

1. It's okay, I'll wait for the archive to be updated. I managed to create a VM image, which is pretty updated, running MSO 2007, .NET (thanks to you and your installer), Opera portable and other software as well. In case of making an installation image, it is wiser to wait for the HFSLIP folder to be updated.

 

2. I already did customisations with nLite, so this is not really an issue.

 

3. I think there's a little misunderstanding here. However, thank you for the links as they solve other issues for me. I was interested mainly in installing UUR daily during the T-13 phase (as it is not SFXCAB and cannot be slipstreamed into the installation source). Will it work with /Passive and /NoRestart switches? Are there other concerns?

About the .NET framework multi package of yours: Is the T-13 installation possible as well?

 

4. This pack includes also USP 5.1? It says it is past SP4, so it comes onto a clean SP4 image?

 

5. OK

 

Thank you for your cooperation and help.

Delete from HFGUIRUNONCE  or HFCABS the components as you want to delete.

(Movie maker exists in HFEXPERT\PROGRAMFILES)

If you can't find cab file, see addtional.cmd ( not additional.cmd )

 

 

But I think that you had better not to delete IE6 component.

It includes some Shell components update.

How thoroughly tested was this? I downloaded the cabs and put them together using the copy /b command and exported everything to the HF_SLIP program, it went through integrating and made an ISO, but I installed it and it was all messed up. The Program Files and WINNT folder were completely inaccessible. None of the programs were on the start menu except for the very default. Add/Remove Programs didn't function at all. The control panel was all messed up, it didn't have the side bar at all. It was just all broken. Even during install right at the end it said something about the Windows Installer service couldn't be accessed. Then when I first logged in, it complained it couldn't find Appwiz.dll or something like that. Something just went horribly wrong when trying to do this.

Hi.

 

Yes. I tested and I took these snapshots when I created English Windows 2000 DVD with this hfslip package.

When I created this iso, the  image size about 1,304,938kb.

I burned it on DVD-RW and I booted My computer with this DVD.

Umm...... Although My Windows 2000 is MSDN English version, there is no such problem.

Do you notice things like cause anything?

Hello again...I'm trying to install a new program (Medved Trader) and the installation has failed at the point that it tried to download and install Windows Installer 4.5 .  Is there a way that this version of Windows Installer will work in Windows 2000. 

 

I'm using UU Rollup1, UU Rollup 2,  UU Rollup v11(weekly 20130323), and .NetFramework 1-4.0 .

I think my DVD was almost 200MBs short of that, so I don't know if that means much or not. But I didn't have any errors during setup except for it complaining about the Windows installer service right at the end of setup, I think it was under either start menu items or the next one about the registry. I can't remember. But other than that, the only other trouble I had was right after I logged into Windows and it started complaining about appwiz.dll and the only way I could continue was to cancel out the command prompt windows that accompanied it, then it went to the desktop. But setup went pretty smooth which is why I don't understand how this happened.

I've tried a long time ago and it wouldn't work for me, but maybe blackwingcat will figure out a way around it. Alos, your UU Rollup is quite old, try one of the daily versions. I've been using the latest one for quite some time and I haven't experienced any problems with it.

I found a bug. Anytime you right click on something in explorer, explorer crashes with a critical stop error and the typical cannot read or write complaint.

Nevermind, believe it or not, it was actually fabricated due to an incompatibility from the WinZip 15 program I had installed earlier. Somehow it was messing with the right click and would crash explorer every time. I will reinstall the pack since I just uninstalled it and see what happens from there.

I've got an important announcement to tell. I'm going to transfer all Windows 2000/XP/2003 official updates from Dropbox to Google Drive. The reason for this move is that I've got now 25GB space to use on Google Drive thanks to free space received when Google merged Docs with the Drive, and also due to the QuickOffice for Android promotion. I need space on Dropbox to use for other data, and I also think that Google Drive should be a better choice for storing files offered to be downloaded publicly since there's no download limit on it (there's such a limit on Dropbox).

Anyhow, this shouldn't really affect anyone since you can browse through the Google Drive archive in a similar way you can browse files located on Dropbox. I'm going to keep the Dropbox archive for 1 week from now and them remove the files once everything has been transferred to Google Drive.

About the .NET framework multi package of yours: Is the T-13 installation possible as well?

You should be able to install both of them in the T-13. The installer is a standard M$ hotfix installer so you can use all supported switches.
 

4. This pack includes also USP 5.1? It says it is past SP4, so it comes onto a clean SP4 image?

It doesn't include USP5.2 per se but being a compilation of almost all M$ official updates and some hotfixes it does in fact cover a lot of stuff included in USP5.1 (excluding probably some hotfixes but they are covered by UR2 so no real problem here).

@lostrail I'm sorry for replying so late to your questions :(

Brooke's...did you try Windows Installer 4.5 with a UU Rollup newer than the one I'm using?  I keep hoping that bwc will show up here and take a stab at this, but I haven't seen him here or in another message thread where I asked for some help with his drivers that I downloaded for an AH3450 graphics card.  I guess eventually he'll be around.

Tomasz,  I didn't see your post until just now.  Thanks for letting me know that you'd tried Windows Installer 4.5 .  Bad luck for me , I guess.  I'll probably have to use XP if I want to run that program (Medved Trader).

It's possible to install Windows Installer 4.5 but it just won't start so you're unable to install applications :}

There are some other bad news. TeamViewer 9 Beta is out and the installer doesn't even start in Windows 2000, i.e. nothing happens when trying to run it.

Also the new version of Avast (Avast 2014) doesn't support Windows 2000 any longer. I've tried to install it but the installer crashes. I've recorder a short screen capture video of the issue here:



This happens with the newest daily of UURollup-v11 installed.

Brooke's...did you try Windows Installer 4.5 with a UU Rollup newer than the one I'm using?  I keep hoping that bwc will show up here and take a stab at this, but I haven't seen him here or in another message thread where I asked for some help with his drivers that I downloaded for an AH3450 graphics card.  I guess eventually he'll be around.

I'm assuming you're talking to me. Well, I doubt it very much since I attempted this project about a year ago so it's very well a few additions made in UURollup could help but I still have my doubts on this. I'm curious since I haven't had any run ins yet, but do you really need Windows Installer 4.5? I'm just curious if you have any applications that require it since I don't know of any myself.

 

 

 

It's possible to install Windows Installer 4.5 but it just won't start so you're unable to install applications :}

There are some other bad news. TeamViewer 9 Beta is out and the installer doesn't even start in Windows 2000, i.e. nothing happens when trying to run it.

Also the new version of Avast (Avast 2014) doesn't support Windows 2000 any longer. I've tried to install it but the installer crashes. I've recorder a short screen capture video of the issue here:

I can't read the file in question, but have you tried using bwc's application utility and manually set the instup.exe or whatever it is to Windows XP? I've found with the newest firefox installs you MUST set setup.exe to Windows XP in order for it to work by manually typing in setup.exe in the file box, just dragging the installer over and setting it to XP doesn't work anymore. Maybe the same is with this as well?

Thanks for the tips :)

The file in question is "instup.exe". You can actually set files to run in Windows XP mode using Application Compatibility Launcher (without relying on the BWC tool) just by typing the filename.
Spoiler

This is my second try:



One step further but still not working.

I take you can't open up the executable via WinRAR or Winzip?

Tommy, sorry for the confusion with Brooke's (I just didn't see your name above the message body).  I wish I didn't need Windows Installer 4.5, but unfortunately a new iteration of my favorite stock market charting program(Quotetracker...now Medved Trader) is being assembled and I offered to help beta test it knowing only that it needed .NetFramework 4.0.  After using Application Compatibility Launcher to start the setup, it turned out to need the 4.5 version of the installer, so that's as far as I got.

 

I'm going to see if the programmer wouldn't mind making up a version using WIndows Installer 3.1, just to see if I can get it to run in Win2000...but he and his team are pretty busy making up the new program so I'm not going to count on that.  I may finally be forced to use XP regularly.

 

How difficult do you suppose it would be to pop out a version of a program using the earlier installer?
