having the version in system properties is a great idea! :)

BTW, is it compatible with WSUS?

If you mean that it can check if SP5 is installed NO.

if you mean that you can use WSUS on a slipstreamed pc afterwards YES

It's done :)

I might release this, or wait a week longer and have next tuesdays updates included.

I could wait a week. Although if M$ release a ton of fixes, that would require more than a 'bit' of work, you

might want to release anyway?

But if we stick with security updates and other updates available from WU it's very simple - would it be of any use?

I would think just a note that it includes all WU security as of: <date> would be sufficient.

Crimeny, a list (EVER growing) of all updates would be a bit mutch.

btw Having just returned from an absence myself; Welcome back and Bless you!

Hey nice thread, I was away for a while

I just thought that a list of KB# included in a txt file could be easy to do, if they overlap just list all the KB# that were applied, so its easy to know if the KB#'s patch has been included into the code

Great project I hope you are doing well :)

i dis-agree. because the Internet Information Service (IIS) is partly dependant on IE files. also IE will have leaks whether you use it or not.

just install the latest SP and use Nlite to remove unwanted stuf. - is inho a way better choice. also in the near future Gurgle will release a servicepack with new Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) witch also is a must-go for database driven aplication services.

i realy do think you'd rather want to use nlite to

A strip MS-JAVA

B strip IE (not ie core)

C strip MS Media Player 9 (and maybe 6.4 as was if you dont run media services).

D some other services

E (IIS - if you want apache instead, or dont run webservices at all).

F things you might think of yourself.

WARNING - ALWAYS TEST IT THOUROUGHLY BEFORE USING IT FOR REAL.
