Recommended Posts

any way to add this little patch to the hotstream project?

I tfails to install because the explorer in your project is 69xx and it needs 66xx

http://www.dr-hoiby.com/TrayIconIn256Color/

Follow the instructions on Dr Hoiby's site to make a patched version.

Then just change the files after running gurg's SP.

BTW His WhoLockMe is a fantastic tool. I add it a a part of my regular build disk.

After searching 50 pages from the previous thread, i found this:

"Okay, these are the changes you need to make, remembering to back up first, and that I'm not responsible if stuff breaks:

For 256-colour tray icons, change the following in explorer.exe (version 5.0.3900.6920, file size 242,448 bytes, located in main Windows directory):

at x618E, change 01 to 11

at x12235, change 01 to 11

at x12246, change 01 to 11

To disable WFP, change the following in sfc.dll (version 5.0.2195.6921, file size 94,456 bytes, located in system32 subdirectory to Windows directory):

at x6276, change 8B C6 to 90 90

All of these have changed since their respective previous versions, so please make sure that you have the right vesions and the like if you do try them."

Thanks again to the original author of this.

Hi,

is there a way to replace explorer.exe and keep WFP running?

Do i have to use modifyPE.exe ?

(Maybe it's possible to slipstream with HFSLIP into the cabinets or similar?)

A: i realy dont thinkt hfslip and uSP5 wil be happy to see eachother lol

B: yeah you should use modifype after hacking or changing files....

just create your cd.. and just before burning it to cdrom replace all files that you want to modify with modifype'd versions of the hacked files...

Thanks Gurgelmeyer,

I was not able to download and check the package yet.

btw, this may not be the right topic but is there a possibility to make localized versions?

yes it is, - if you can supply ALL patches - /G has used,

problem is lots and lots of them arn't public - and mainstream support has ended, (so if you want them, buy them).

another option would be to - make a 'as mutch as you can get your hands on' version, its all up to you, (i know if tryed a dutch version, and maybe ill even retry (but chances are slim, and time isn't cheap)),

thats why ive chosen to rather just stick with the enlish version (and made a point to al the who ask me about it, (if you cant use windows 2k in enlish - use xp). its hash but very real (imho)

Hello,

And for those wondering how to replace explorer.exe on running system...

Well, the easy way is to use replacer:

http://www.www3.telus.net/_/replacer/

You simply download and follow the instructions when you run it.

I find the easy way to enable 256 color tray icons is using:

http://www.chmaas.handshake.de/delphi/free...xvi32/xvi32.htm

1.) Download and run.

2.) Then click file > open and open explorer.exe .

3.) Then you simply click Address > Goto from the tool bar.

4.) So go to the places that Gas_Hed explained above and change their values.

5.) Then you simply save it as explorer.exe to your desktop and use replacer from above.

It's really that simple.

I would just post the exe, but I don't want to get into any copyright issues. ;)

Enjoy,

Will
