Hey,

Well just installed. hehe :)

Well maybe in the next build include Microsoft Update. That is so you do not have to download the first time and even have its shortcut created in the start menu?

Also, I thought this includes the Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 (KB891861) ?

Still showing up on Microsoft Update.

Just an idea,

Will

look in the - close thread, - the Rollup pack is actualy in the file excapt for 2 files something about MS releasing a new Driver model support ...

Gurglemeyer didn't want to include a new (half in beta) feature witch would probebly not work stable anyways so he left the file out...

He also said it was recoment it NOT to install ....

BTW: - would it be better - to NOT make diferent release versions, but non-cumulative feature packs instead...

and end up with a couple of files that u should intergrate to get a Extreme Edition setup...

id gues for

> W2KUSP5_Base.exe -------- (basic windows security updates)

> W2KUSP5_Runtime.exe ---- (MSI3.1 + DX9 + NETFX1.1 and WSH5)

> W2KUSP5_IExpl.exe -------- (IE / OE)

> W2KUSP5_Mplay.exe ------- (wmp 9 + win movie maker and all media stuff).

> W2KUSP5_Serv.exe ------- (IIS and ALL windows server compontents + updates)

Hi :)

By splitting the USP I'd have to do much more testing. I'd much rather release future USP's side by side in a crosslinked ISO image - but it's not as easy as it sounds. (I could even release my personal edition then :lol:)

But I'll consider it carefully - atm I'm committed to USP 5.1 :yes:

Best regards,

Gurgelmeyer B)

All we need to really do is find a suitable HTTP host. Then splitting it up wouldn't be necessary (except possibly for those who would like to pick and choose what components are installed)

Gurgelmeyer, keep up the good work.

Hi all,

I am a bit confused now: Is this really SR1 *FINAL* ?

I've installed it but it's displayed as SP5 in my softwarelist, not SP5 SR1!

@Seppl - Yes - it's final. The build number is at the bottom of the autorun.htm file - USP 5.01 build 11-2005-10-17 (service release 1) :)

@Alexander Maxim - you're right, I did't :) Had some personal stuff to take care of :}

I'm a bit surprised - >1600 dl's in a day or so - wow! Btw, the description should say 403 hotfixes rather than 168 hotfixes. ;)

Is there an official description you can give us, I assumed that was yours.

@Seppl - Yes - it's final. The build number is at the bottom of the autorun.htm file - USP 5.01 build 11-2005-10-17 (service release 1) :)

Hi :)

Technically it is possible to make a non-cumulative service pack, which would require SP4. Maybe I should look into that again ;)

Best regards,

Gurgelmeyer :B

Well, I vote for this solution. Update to Win2K SP4 , with all extras would be great. To be honest, I don't know enyone who still use Windows 2000 without SP4.

File will be much smaller (I guess), so it would be easier to download and faster to implement.

It goes to show how many require a stable updated 2K..

Hi :)

@MajorGeeks and @SoftPedia: Yep - I'll send you a description in a PM. I'm rather surprised by the amount of dl's btw - but a lot of people have passed by from other forums :hello: I've learned.

I wouldn't be able to fix all the SP4 bugs in a delta package, it would not be able to integrate as efficiently as the USP's, installation would leave less disk space available, integrated installs would be larger, and the overall quality would suffer. Also it would matter in which order those packages were applied, and some files (txtsetup.inf, dosnet.inf, hivesft.inf, hivecls.inf, setupreg.hiv etc. etc. which already exists in five versions - one for each W2k flavour) would become hard if not impossible to update correctly using normal .inf technology. Also it would delay further releases at least by a month or so. Sry - but I think you are all better off with the cumulative versions, where I've had the chance to test it thoroughly, verify each and every registry setting, each and every file, etc etc - because I actually do that. :)

Best regards,

Gurgelmeyer B)
