@Molecule

First the following link download KB3057839 with "Internet Explorer" (other browsers are not accept) http://catalog.updat...057839 Posready
Extract KB3057839 by using the parameter "-x". Now copy from KB3057839 to kb3037572 the files "spmsg.dll" and "spuninst.exe", in the "update" directory the files "spcustom.dll", "update.exe" and "updspapi.dll".
In kb3037572\update\update.exe replace with HEX Editor "E8 02 BA 02 00 85 C0 75 41" by "E8 02 BA 02 00 31 C0 EB 41". ;Thanks to harkaz
 
changes on "update_SP2QFE.inf"

changes on "branches.inf"

This should be working, according to this pattern, the other updates should not be a problem.

@Molecule,

As to your comment about SP3QFE vs SP2QFE, The Last Service Pack of XP was SP3, while the last Service Pack of 2003 was SP2.  QFE refers to the branch of updates, "standard" ie GDR -- General Distribution Release, vs "request only" ie QFE -- Quick Fix Engineering aka LDR -- Limited Distribution Release.  The last two are synonymous.  You can refer to here for more info.

 

Cheers and Regards

absolute awesome heinoganda!!

 

some questions to finalize

 

1. in "update_SP2QFE.inf"

 

there are two HKLM's which refer to two dll's which I don't have in my XP system. They are

%systemroot%\system32\ws03res.dll

and

%systemroot%\system32\w03a2409.dll

 

One call in [Product.Append.Reg.IA] and another in [Product.Append.Reg.ID]

 

Do you have these 2 dll's in your XP system?

Since the calls to these files appear in the original inf for Server 2003, I was wondering maybe they are dll's for Server 2003?

 

2. The find on KB 2833941 is HUGE to me. It's not in the changelog list for OnePiece's AIO Update Pack. HUGE find!! Big thanks. It runs in from command line.

 

3. so -x expands -- haha -- I've been using DXUPAC but it's just a hidden switch in the installer. Nice! Thanks. Saves lots of work.

 

4. How do I compile the service pack back into an installable (executable) exe. Or do I just start up one of the exes in each package to run the update.

 

== edit ==

 

5. three KBs (NDP11SP1-XP-x86-KB2972207, NDP11SP1-XP-x86-KB2978114, NDP11SP1-XP-x86-KB3037572) have two copies of update.exe. One is in root, the other is in \updates folder. After the hex edit of update\update.exe, so now do I copy it to both locations in above KBs -- Or, just overwrite thte one in the \update folder? -- thanks

 

(The problem doesn't apply to NDP11SP1-XP-x86-KB3023211 because it doesn't have a copy of update.exe in the root folder. Only one in \update)

 

Thanks! Biggest time ever!!

can the platonic solids be constructed by gaussian modulation of rotational action, rotational action itself being an artifact of intersection of two sphaeric actions--the tetrahedron for example

@bphlph -- thanks! it's nice to see parts in a bigger picture! Or should I say, Slowly, I start to see a bigger picture ... haha

 

@heinoganda --

 

even though we are using XP with SP3, we preserve the folder name SP2QFE (for Server 2003 sp2), and we preserve the file name update_SP2QFE as well?  -- Just checking. I guess the SP2 names match the tables in branches.inf.

 

== edit ==

 

wondering if there a way to recompile and make the /quiet and /norestart switches work for batch install?

 

thanks

 

also, whoops

 

comment below doesn't apply -- I just rememberd that each KB has a different time stamp

 

sorry

 

it looks like the file "branches.inf" will be standard for all cases, so far, Which means maybe it could become part of a set called the "XP engine files" ... they always get copied into the new package (replacing same files for Server 2003), while the file "update_SP2QFE.inf" will always require the edits as shown.

 

Thanks!

1. in "update_SP2QFE.inf"

Does not matter under XP.

 

4. How do I compile the service pack back into an installable (executable) exe. Or do I just start up one of the exes in each package to run the update.

For example Winrar SFX with follow comment

Setup=update\update.exe
TempMode
Silent=1
Overwrite=1

even though we are using XP with SP3, we preserve the folder name SP2QFE (for Server 2003 sp2), and we preserve the file name update_SP2QFE as well?  -- Just checking. I guess the SP2 names match the tables in branches.inf.

Because nothing is changed!

 

comment below doesn't apply -- I just rememberd that each KB has a different time stamp

From original Apply on new "update_SP2QFE.inf" and "branches.inf"!

Except for string "BUILDTIMESTAMP".

 

//Edit

5. three KBs (NDP11SP1-XP-x86-KB2972207, NDP11SP1-XP-x86-KB2978114, NDP11SP1-XP-x86-KB3037572) have two copies of update.exe. One is in root, the other is in \updates folder. After the hex edit of update\update.exe, so now do I copy it to both locations in above KBs -- Or, just overwrite thte one in the \update folder?

All four updates I have downloaded from the WSUS catalog (http://catalog.updat.../site/Home.aspx), extracted with parameter "x" and has obtained nothing like that.

=== edit ===

 

SUCCESS!! the sfx packages by WinRar ran with no problems. (they deserve a plug ... I got WinRar in a MSFN promotion back when)

 

thanks to all

 

=== edit 2 ===

 

NDP1.1sp1-KB2833941-X86.exe allows /passive but chokes on /nobackup

for the .NET 1.1 patches modded for XP, I ran the modded setup.exe (the one that is in the \update folder) because it accepts switches! \passive \nobackup both work (I didn't if SFX archive would pass parameters to the right setup.exe (there are two, one in root - don't use, it's 2002, one in update folder, which is modded to XP)

 

all of the other .NET setups for 2, 3 4 also accept the same switches \passive \nobackup

(\no backup is not listed on the /? list but it seems to work)

batch installs with /nobackup switch is MUCH faster (a lot of delayed diskwork, so I use start /wait NDPxxx /passive /nobackup)

 

=== edit 3 ===

 

pretty cool .NET version installed tool for free --- http://www.asoft.be/prod_netver.html(portable)

(along with the MS Framework Setup Verification Utility)

 

 

 

====

 

WinRAR sfx  (using WinRAR 351)

 

VERY cool -- thanks for the intro -- 1st time I used it.

 

I looked at a few 7zip SFX builders but they seemed clunky. There's one as MSFN project (http://www.msfn.org/...d-tools/page-20) looks nice ... but where do I start???  you download a 7z with several sfx archives, but which advanced crypto name does what? which one goes first? where to start? I assumed it was plugin on 7z but probably not?

 

WinRAR sfx was very cool! straight forward ...

Procedure to remove the PosReady registry hack from within XP, more convenient than offline editing

1. Close all programs

2. Create a backup set of registry with ERUNT or Registry Backup

3. Start a registry editor, and load the SYSTEM hive from the backup set created in step 2

4. In the loaded hive, put the Installed DWORD value to 0

5. Unload the hive

6. Run the registry restore and restart WinXP

 

 

=== Original for Jaclaz

Procedura per rimuovere l'hack PosReady dai registri dall'interno di XP, piĆ¹ comoda dell'editing offline

1. Chiudere tutti i programmi

2. Creare un set di backup dei registri con EruNT o Registry Backup

3. Avviare un editor registri, e caricare l'hive SYSTEM del set di backup creato al punto 2

4. Nell'hive caricato, porre a 0 il valore DWORD Installed

5. Scaricare l'hive

6. Eseguire il restore dei registri e riavviare WinXP

I am not getting it. :unsure:

 

What are the "news"?

 

The use of a backup made with ERUNT?

http://www.911cd.net...ndpost&p=175632

 

Why should I need an "original" in Italian?
