Not a problem, it just threw me for a bit of a loop. lol

 

Well, it's really hard to say since I haven't tried to get Windows Installer 4.5 to work again. .NET Framework is no problem since we already have a patch for that and it works great. I can't remember if blackwingcat has ever attempted it or not. But he's probably our best bet at this point. If I get a chance, I'll reinstall Windows 2000 in a virtual box and see if I can figure out how to get it going. I imagine it's probably just a matter of the right DLLs and having the right extensions in them.

 

Another problem is I don't know what 4.5 has to offer over 3.1. It probably just allows for more advanced installations which I really don't see the point. I think more of it is just a ploy to get everyone to upgrade their systems. If they never came out with new stuff that was incompatible with older OSs, you could use the same computer and OS forever basically. But we'll see if we can get some other responses to this. I haven't even tried 4.5 on a Windows XP machine yet so I don't even know what's different.

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

The installer itself can't be unpacked like that but it may be possible to grab some files from %TEMP% once the installer has been started. This requires some trial and error testing, and time to do it (lack of time is the real problem -_-)

 

 

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.

Just a wild suggestion but have you tried to simply install the program in Windows XP and then copy the files to Windows 2000? If it's only the installer that doesn't work then there's a change that you'll be able to start the application itself.

That does work and I'm looking into it now. My error is slightly different but it's the same file in question. I ran it through dependency walker and this is what I have encountered.

 

Second chance exception 0xE06D7363 (Microsoft C++ Exception) occurred in "KERNEL32.DLL" at address 0x7C59BCB1.

 

I will continue to work at this but I don't know if we'll have much luck or not.

That's a good idea, Tomasz, and I just installed the program (Medved Trader) on Windows XP (on the same machine, dual boot) so it should be easy to copy it and run it in Windows 2000. Or even just boot up in Windows 2000 and try to run the main exe file in the XP installation(same computer, different partition).

I've run Avast 2014 installer again and copied the files from TEMP. I've got no time to inspect them (using Dependency Walker, etc.) now but I'll be very thankful if someone did it :)

Thanks for the upload! Even though I have the archive as well, it'll be great if more eyes can look at this. As I can see right now, what I posted earlier is what is ultimately stopping us at this point. KDW Wrapper also doesn't help here so I think we're missing something vital. I don't know if blackwingcat can figure it out or not.

I've finished moving the archived files from Dropbox to Google Drive.

You find them under this URL: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0Bw_nt4aAJIoPaWJsUXQ4NGdWdjQ#list

Please let me know if you can access them under the new location. As said before, I'm going to remove the Dropbox archive sometime this weekend.

The KDW wrapper is too legacy technology, and  is has no longer supported .  :whistle:

It has many problem in compatibility and relacation and Antivirus false positive.

 

The 0xE06D7363 (Microsoft C++ Exception)  seems to lack of component in Windows 2000.

         int3
 SUB_L1032E62A:
          push    ebp
 

When instup.exe detects Windows 2000, it forces raise exception 0xE06D7363 :ph34r:

 

 

          lea    eax,[ebp-34h]
          push    eax
          call    [KERNEL32.dll!GetNumaHighestNodeNumber]
          test    eax,eax
          jnz    L10330886
          call    [KERNEL32.dll!GetLastError]
          test    eax,eax
          jle    L1033086F
          movzx    eax,ax
          or    eax,80070000h
 L1033086F:
          push    eax
          lea    ecx,[ebp-60h]
          call    SUB_L1032ADF3 <- Raise Exception.
          push    L10418134
          lea    eax,[ebp-60h]
 L10330880:
          push    eax
          call    SUB_L102DC8A0
 

And other case,  Windows 2000 not implemented GetNumaHighestNodeNumber.

So it makes Raise Exception.

 

And Third Exception is Memory Exception I don't know it.

Perhaps it occurs when I run debugger.

 

Thanks for the upload! Even though I have the archive as well, it'll be great if more eyes can look at this. As I can see right now, what I posted earlier is what is ultimately stopping us at this point. KDW Wrapper also doesn't help here so I think we're missing something vital.

So basically what you're saying in a nutshell is we're screwed on this and it won't work on Windows 2000?

A new daily of UURollup-v11 is ready.

Changes:

  • added all new files from BWC kernel 935839-v23i (not v23iG!)

 

You can download it from Google Drive under the link posted above. Tomorrow I'm going to remove all Archive files from Dropbox.

Hi, Master Tomasz 

 

First of All thanks for your inappreciable, considerable, perceptible, appraisable, invaluable and

remarkable work on Google Drive... 

Personally i think Legacy is an important issue, in consideration of the memory of the past's master 

(gurgelmeyer among others) and especially for future generations as well... :boring:

 

After a little bit of rethoric back to Earth...

 

I'm trying to download MDAC281-KB927779-v2-x86-ENU.exe (English) from your page:

http://windows2000.t...79_mdac28sp1-v2

of Updates lists for For HFSLIP and...am i wrong or some links are still pointing to Dropbox ?

 

Yeah, Master T86, this is the first time

( since 2007! :yes:!) That i'm completely re-installing the glorious windows 2000 Pro... 

Well, to be honest, i've bought the fisrt edition of W2Kpro in the golden days of 2000 [ my first OS was MSDOS 5! ]

 

So i'm detemined to create Booooootable DVD containing official & UNofficial updates hotfixes & paraphernalias for

ENU-ITA-ESN versions of W2KPRO... :thumbup

Furthermore i'm using M$ virtual Pc 2004 (as virtual machine, of course hosted on W2Kpro) 'cause i'm an addict to shell extension :blushing: !

(menus context, shell namespace, properties pages, thumbnails views & listview controls of explorer and so on...

i think the best book i've ever read about is the old but unsurpassed Visual C++ Windows Shell Programming by Dino Esposito!)

 

And i'd like to know in advance which'll crashed explorer...and which NOT installing on the ENU flavor of W2K your UURollup...

 

Thanks in advance for your kind reply and the best luck for your final project USP52

 

hackeronte

 

P.S. Post Scriptum

If I may be of any Help for USP52, now or in the future, don't hesitate to ask...

The links on my website haven't been updated for a long time (except for the main Archive link)... I probably won't be able to do anything until December :( Please check if the update is available in the Google Drive archive.

And i'd like to know in advance
which'll crashed explorer...and
which NOT installing on the
ENU flavor of W2K your
UURollup...


I can't understand the question :} Do you mean updates or other components?

I'll definitely ask for help with USP5 but at the moment I'm too busy with other things to find any time to spend on Windows related projects :(

No problem at all :sneaky:! I've downloaded HFSLIP_ia.7z from gDrive and inside i've found MDAC281-KB927779-v2-x86-ENU.exe

 

 

I can't understand the question Do you mean updates or other components?

 

Don't worry, it was about the two unofficial kernels (WB kernel and BWC kernel) included in it...

 

 

at the moment I'm too busy with other things

 

Me too, i'm using W2Kpro only in my spare time...

 

Thanks for your kind & fast reply, cheer...

@Hackeronte

 

As for BWC and WB kernels, we've been using BWC kernel in UURollup for a long time and I wouldn't really suggest using WB kernel at this point. BWC kernel isn't only about kernel core files like kernel32, ntdll.dll, etc. but also a lot of other system files which aren't included in WB kernel at all.

 

By the way, I've now got no Internet connection at home except for the 500 MB monthly data plan on my mobile phone so my Internet access is going to be kind of limited. I do check MSFN daily and read the new content, especially the one related to Windows 2000 / XP.

Some problems with the redirection service :( It should be working now.

Just in case save this URL:

https://googledrive.com/host/0Bw_nt4aAJIoPRmRlbmNteGZlMU0/

It should always work.

I don't trust them that much too but I've got all files backed up on my local storage anyway. Even if something bad happens I can just reupload them so don't worry :)

By the way, I haven't mentioned that before but there are some differences between the files included in UURollup and BWC kernel. I should probably make a detailed list later but what I can say at the moment is that UURollup uses newer versions of some of them, ex. msftedit.dll is newer, and also dpx.dll and expand.exe come from Windows 8 while BWC kernel uses the Windows 7 files.

Tomasz, I have the latest UURollup v11 (Weekly 20130323) and I'd like to move up to a recent daily version to try to solve a problem (the volume control disappeared and I now have no sound after I tried to install BWC's Ati Radeon Graphic driver 9.4).  Of the newest daily versions, which seems to be the most stable?

 

John

Changes:As always, all new files from BWC kernel have been added. The second change is very experimental and may be controversial. I'm myself not sure whether ad-blocking should be built-in in OS. Let's just experiment and see how this goes. That's what the daily releases were originally intended for :P


@jbclem I can't really give you any specific build number. The changes which have been going on in the daily releases are incremental. blackwingcat keeps adding new features to his kernel but he does it in small steps so there are no radical, sudden changes. If I were you I'd just make a backup copy of the system partition and install the newest daily release :)

The file was there but I forgot to change year in date so its name started with "2013..." rather than "2014..." :blushing: :blushing: :blushing:

Tomasz, I have the latest UURollup v11 (Weekly 20130323) and I'd like to move up to a recent daily version to try to solve a problem (the volume control disappeared and I now have no sound after I tried to install BWC's Ati Radeon Graphic driver 9.4).  Of the newest daily versions, which seems to be the most stable?

I don't know why this happens, especially due to it being a graphics driver, but I know the same happens to me for sound drivers and the old fix used to be just reinstalling UURollup after installing your sound driver and it would work. I haven't gotten around to testing it but a theory  I have is you might need to reregister a sound dll file using regserv. I don't know if that would work as I haven't tried it but it's just an educated guess.

 

Tomasz, have you simplified the UURollup installation to ignore any files that contain the same file version as in the update. It seems that the installation is a lot shorter and it skips anything that doesn't need to be updated. I think that's why my fix stopped working around the September release I believe it was.
