There needs a slight tweak to HFSLIP for the directx hotfix. FWIW, HFSLIP juggles various versions of directx and leaves the latest stuff there... as I said before, slipstreaming XP is a piece of cake, but with W2K, there is lots more variables (I guess that's why others haven't attempted it). Don't worry it's under control and I expect to send FDV the new version before the end of the day.

@FDV:

For Win2kSP5 on your webpage, you still list KB899588 when its's been replace by KB905749.

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/MS05-047.mspx

Also, you didn't list KB900725, which replaces KB894320.

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/ms05-049.mspx

Also, the new IE5/6.01sp4-KB896688 replaces IE5/6.01sp4-KB896727.

FDV, the reference to "IE5.01sp4-KB896727-Windows2000sp4-x86-ENU.exe" in the section of your webpage dealing with FDVFiles is obsolete. It should refer to "IE5.01sp4-KB896688-Windows2000sp4-x86-ENU.exe".

You refer to the correct IE cumulative update file in the section of your web page dealing with IE5 and IE6.

Also, I think that there is an additional IE6 update for IE6 Win2k users only, specifically IE6.0sp1-KB905495-Windows2000-x86-ENU.exe. It's buried in this link here.

Good job on the watchful eye-ness.

@fdv+tommyp: the IE6 update for 2000 that saugatek just mentioned (905495) is not an IE update for XP/2003. It is an Update for Windows.

the_guy

EDIT: It only affects IE6 SP1 for 2000, XP SP1, and 2003 SP0

They might not be needed for the lists.

@ saugatak - Thanks for the info on the hotfixes. I guess that

http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=31886 doesn't want to support W2K hotfixes anymore.

@All, the new hfslip version is up. It was a small correction for some directx slipstreaming. The prob was that when HFSLIP is run on a 2k source, it decides which version of directx you are using, and it slipstreams the correct files. Pending future microsoft directx hotfixes, this version should be good for quite sometime (unless I feel like adding in another feature). If anyone has ideas for additional features, please PM me.

OK I'm confused. :blink: Is it a Windows update or IE update?

IE6.0sp1-KB905495-Windows2000-x86-ENU.exe should clearly go into HF if your're slipstreaming IE6.

But what if you're not slipstreaming IE6? Can you drop it from HF if you're using FDV's fileset or going with IE5?

BTW, just wondering, but what is the logic on sticking with IE5. Support for IE5 has dropped so no more hotfixes coming from M$. Either you would use IE6 or take out IE altogether with FDVFileset or nLite.

Just a suggestion FDV, but would it be a good idea to drop IE5 coverage on your website, simplify things a little?

It is an Update for IE 6 SP1 for Windows 2000. It is a Windows Update for Windows XP SP1 and Windows 2003 SP0. It is NOT for Windows XP SP2/2003 SP1. Just thought I'd make it clearer.

don't drop IE5 coverage !!! win2k with ie5 remains lighter and swift than a win2k with ie6

I use firefox for the navigation I don't need Internet explorer 6 :}

Could somebody create and maintain the threads with hot-fixe for Windows 2000 and Windows XP as Bilou_Gateux created for Windows 2003 Server?

I could do Windows 2000. I am going on vacation for a few days so I could maintain it whenever I get back.

Great :thumbup:

Please consider that there are a few choices: some people move to IE6 SP1 and some people still stay with IE5.1. The same with DirectX versions 7 and 9. You may have a look at some threads in Unattended section as examples.
