This is the error that I get when I uninstall Office 2007 using the chrome tool. As you can see it's complaining about MSVCR80.DLL being missing. And it is after uninstalling Office 2007. I have tested it in multiple virtual machines and I get the same result every time. The solution to the problem was simple: I copied MSVCR80.DLL over from another unofficially updated Windows 2000 machine and placed it into system32. Now no error.


I just thought I'd post this little update. I can probably go ahead and remove Office 2007 with confidence now, and solve a lot of the other mentioned issues.

I've just uploaded a new daily of UURollup (sorry for the usual delay :()
  • All files from the newest BWC kernel added.
  • Application Compatibility Launcher and Process Explorer available via Programs\Accessories\System Tools in Start Menu.
  • No more shell32.dll errors during the installation process.
I'm also working on removing the modified sfc.dll file (Avast issue) and using another method for disabling System File Protection.

I've also finished preparing the new HFSLIP package but found out that the new HFSLIP beta by Acheron has some issues, and I want to fix them first. My website update will also be delayed till next weekend.

There's a very serious issue in all versions of UURollup (including v10 and older). The problem is that %windir%\system32\hal.dll isn't updated at all.......


At the moment my system32 has 5.0.2195.6988 [84,192 bytes]. In the v11-d20141130 uninstall folder the halaacpi.dll has the same attributes - is it reasonable to assume that's the correct file to install in system32 from the Driver Cache\i386 folder (renamed, of course)?


Edit: discovered the 'Original Filename' of my system32 HAL.DLL and swapped in the newer version from Driver Cache, no problem.


I've got a separate issue with regard to Zonealarm, however - BSOD with error 0xc00000050 when I try to install ZA with any version of UURollup all the way back to v10e. Is there any possible workaround? Using real hardware (Dell GX260, 2.8ghz P4, 2GB RAM), btw.

Wow! Nice work! I'm so happy that people are still developing unofficial updates for Win2k.

I think it's really important to keep it alive, because it's the last OS that's fully based on the classic design

and was really made for desktop computing. We shouldn't forget that Windows also was a perfect PC OS.

Today it's just some stuff that should run on nearly everything.
