Seems no one has heard from you. You have mentioned medical problems in the past.
If you are where you can read this, I hope you are resting and NOT ill!
I will ask the great spirit to look over you! (Don't get your hopes up - I am an just an old geek and
not on the best terms with the 'big guy') :hello:

Anyone KNOW?

The HFSLIP forum hereby sends strippers and two kegs of Guiness and Newcastle to Gurglemeyer in this forum. The strippers have been instructed to make chicken soup between resuscitative efforts :D
Get well, dude

Thanks for caring, guys!! I feel much better at the moment - I even managed to fix this old wreck of a PC, which seems to have been in an even worse condition than me.

So all the strippers and the nice ale is for real and not a hallucination caused by my medication - sweeeet - that explains some things :rolleyes: :blushing: :rolleyes: - thanks to fdv and the rest of the HFSLIP crew :D

Oh My! I didn't even know Gurgelmeyer was ill! :blushing: I hope you are feeling spry, well, happy and having fun Gurgelmeyer -- if not this very moment, real soon!

You've definately achieved the vaunted status of one of the top Gurus of Windows System Internals. Your contributions, hard work, and generosity have helped literally tens of thousands and that's a fact!

What ever is keeping you down, get well soon! This forum would not be the same without you!

:wub:

Thanks for your support, guys. I'm happy to be here :)

I feel better at the moment. My heart has suffered permanent damage, and that's all I know and all I want to know. On the bright side, I have more time for doing the things I like, such as USP's, spending time with friends and relatives, and listening to music.

Best regards,
Gurgelmeyer B)

PS - RyanVM - I'm still looking into the 300 .cat-files problem on XP from time to time. I'd like to get rid of the svcpack.inf in my own USP's too while I'm at it.

Glad you're back in the saddle Gurglemeyer! I don't want to trivialize coronary health in anyway; heart disease is chronic in my family; my Grandfather suffered no less then fifteen heart attacks and suffered massive cardiac damage, but lived to a ripe (in more ways then one) :D and active age of 82.

Coronary medicine and proceedure is one of the most results oriented and successful fields of contemporary medicine -- so my hopes are high that your future will be long and bright, and that we can look forward to a Hotstream Project to address some of the many 'ouches' on the soon to be retired Windows Server 2003!

Even if your priorities change, and fixing the many flaws of Windows System Internals that only you've been able to address -- you have many greatful Fans for all you've done with the Windows 2000 Hotstream Project!

Thanx :D

Almost finished USP 5.1 SR-1 (build 19) - had to do something easy to get back on track after two computer crashes and a month or two of illness... just need to look into the DOS setup. This build seems to speed up windows a bit compared to SP4 - but I might be imagening things :whistle: - anyway public RC available soon.

Best regards,
Gurgelmeyer B)

Dear Gurgel,
You must keep yourself fit to continue contributing to this elite community, of which you are one of the pioneers. :yes: What I can suggest that you take your eyes off the computer monitor for at least one hr a day and do yoga or exercise.
Regards

Hi Gurgelmeyer,

soneone in another forum recently asked how can we "help" UPDATE.EXE overcome the /integrate problem.

Here's the quote-

Sorry for the late post, but it's only now I stumbled upon this topic on google.

You'll need to "help" UPDATE.EXE overcome this and similar other "shortcomings" just to make it do anything at all btw.

How do we 'help' update.exe? Because executing i386\update\update.exe /Integrate:D:\XP fails and says that you need to use /integrate with the original package.
Thanks.

Hi :)

I've been at the hospital for a while, but I'm back and I'm going to fully recover so I can make USP's for you guys :D

You need to use the version of update.exe contained in my USP 5.1 - AND you need to wrap it in a "real" SFX:

1. Find a hotfix with SFXCAB version 5.5.31.0
2. Remove the digital signature from the hotfix; use the ImageEnumerateCertificates() and ImageRemoveCertificate() functions exposed through imagehlp.h
3. Truncate the unsigned hotfix at offset 0x8800
4. Make your .CAB file, and open it in a hex editor; locate the entry for the program that you want to run automatically upon extraction, and OR the attribute byte (two bytes before the first char in the filename) with 0x40
5. Store the size of the .CAB file as a DWORD at offset 0x7C18 in the truncated hotfix .EXE
6. Append the .CAB file to the .EXE file (you will not need the .CAB file anymore now)
7. Store the size of the .EXE in the .EXE itself as a DWORD at offset 0x0168
8. Append any zero bytes necessary to the .EXE file so its size becomes a multiplum of 512
9. Substract 0x7E00 from the size of the .EXE, and store the result as a DWORD at offset 0x0228 in the .EXE itself
10. Update the PE checksum

This may help you with the MSI problem. http://www.ryanvm.ne...ighlight=dotnet

A way has been found to do MSI setups from SVCPACK.INF. I have done it myself and it works. See also http://www.ryanvm.ne...opic.php?t=2249
