POSReady 2009 updates ported to Windows XP SP3 ENU

Recommended Posts

Everyone - three things -

1)  mixit - your posts show only a grey box where you present useful info.  (Just recently at http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/171814-posready-2009-updates-ported-to-windows-xp-sp3-enu/?do=findComment&comment=1147450).  What should I do to see what you posted?

2)  On my wife's important SOHO machine (Win 7 64-bit), we are still using Office 2003.  Should any of the recent updates for Office or Compatibility be run manually on her machine?

3)  On this my favorite forum, the buttons for INSERT URL (the chain link icon) and >> (go to Last Page) don't work.  Also, the buttons for any page (such as "122") don't work.

Might 1) and 3) be the result of my having so much security on my Firefox browser that I now need to use a password to go to the loo?  (NoScript, Disconnect, BetterPrivacy, AdBlockPlus (actually turned off for this site), CookieMonster, HTTPS Everywhere ...)

Thanks.

Hm, maybe I haven't sleep enough last night, but I just can't figure out from that post what exactly are those 3 hotfixes. There are so many numbers...

@glnz Well, I have noscript, adblock plus and better privacy of those firefox addons, and haven't experienced any of problems with this site You've mentioned. It might be one of other addons or something else.

This rings any bells? :dubbio:

Reset to default colors? :unsure:  The jumpback icon links to this post.

Yes, that might be it. I'm obviously not so good with tables. :lol:

Thanks, dencorso!

den and mixit - thanks for your patience, 

After fussing a bit with my Firefox, I am able to see Mixit's insert link only after both (a) importing the certificate for msfn.org and (b) clicking on the lock icon in the address bar, seeing that this page is partially not secure, clicking on the > and hitting "Disable for now".  Unfortunately, that last option (the button for "Disable for now") is not available on every page.

On this XP machine, I have Firefix ESR 52.5.0 (32-bit).

Running FF with Add-ons Disabled didn't help.  Only the steps above helped.

The normal icons for moving to other pages still don't work unless I right-click and hit Open in New Tab.

Why so tough?

Because you must be using a supermegaüberparanoid security setting, if I know you at all!!! :P
Look: I use MSE v. 4.4.304.0 with up-to-date definitions, the default windows XPSP3 firewall, nothing but the default on the HOSTS file, a hardware firewall on the router and pi-hole for DNS and nothing else. None of my systems ever show the "Disable for now" nor care whether MSFN is offering mixed content or not. AND, the last time I got a system crippled by a virus was back in '88, by Jerusalem.

Ok OK - I'm so over-secured that the only thing still working is a manual typewriter and carbon paper.

But for my OTHER machines -- "On my wife's important SOHO machine (Win 7 64-bit), we are still using Office 2003.  Should any of the recent updates for Office or Compatibility be run manually on her machine?"

I'd do it. I did it to all my machines and alternate boot partitions, except I did not use the Office 2003 updates, only the ones for the 2007 Compatibility Pack, because they don't apply to my installations which are Office 2000 or 97 with the 2007 Compatibility Pack. But I also did replace the Equation Editor executable everywhere, as per @mixit's instructions.

@Dave-H: That's a classic one! If your machine has a winlogon.exe which version is less than 5.1.2600.6443, I strongly recommend you to install this hotfix: KB2878379-v2. I've never again got a "c000021a" error after installing it.

So much helpful information, that needs to be stitched ;)

@glnz @dencorso

The funny thing is that I don't even like to post references with that box thing (which, as I just discovered, is an iframe - ugh...), but since pasting a post link gets automatically converted to it, I just don't bother to change it every time, as the Link tool in the editor has its own idiosyncracies (at least in my case it forgets the clipboard contents, so I always have to go back and copy my text/URL again after having opened it - pretty annoying :rolleyes:). I really wish we could use BBCode here.

+1. It's too bad we cannot. It's worse than FF Quantum (we've still got FF esr for half next year if not more and hopefully will remain having New Moon at least until POSReady 2009 EoS, if not longer), however, because we cannot forsake MSFN.

The hotfix suggested are really worth thanks, maybe only the first one (KB948101v3) can be avoided cause it's only related to a specific MBchip (credit @Yellow Horrow).

KB948101 - A USB keyboard does not work after you restart a Windows XP-based computer that has an NVIDIA 680i motherboard installed

I would add this one KB922120v6 to see XP system in W7/8/10 net

KB922120 - Network Map in Windows Vista does not display computers that are running Windows XP

A great resource to retrieve hotfix, as support.microsoft often removes that files, is here (you can use search tab to find anything in any language)

Not to a graphic card, but to a specific motherboard chipset.

A tip for the unofficial updates that are no longer findable, directly paste the following link in the address bar and insert the required KB number.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hotfix/kbhotfix?kbnum=KB NUMBER&kbln=en-US

An example for KB916157:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hotfix/kbhotfix?kbnum=916157&kbln=en-US
