HFSLIP - Test releases

2,380 posts in this topic

Thanks fdv.

I'd like to make Windows not check the list.

From here : http://www.d--b.webpark.pl/dreampackpl_en.htm , I need this method:

Second often used function is SetupInstallFile (with SP_COPY_FORCE_IN_USE flag). This function before add a file to replace-list, check with SfcIsFileProtected (from sfc_os.dll) whether the file is protected or not. If file sfc_os.dll is patched, then SfcIsFileProtected will return always false. So SetupInstallFile will no add AllowProtectedRenames value to the registry.

Do you know of any patcher that uses only this method ?

hi dziubek!

this is what i've used likewise to come up with successful builds ...

i remember seeing your msg before about being stuck at T-9 & i suppose you used the same file too ... & perhaps resolved it by using the file from RyanVM ? :)

btw, would this cat removal an option that the new test release already shows? i mean, i did not see it using the test release cmd ... how can this be done?

thanks!

Hi

SFCFILES.DL_]

Error from T -9 stepped out by file SFCFILES.DL_. I deleted his from FIX.

I use file sfc_os .dl_ only now.

Can you add except acceptance the Y also the y by choice the removal of files of CAT ?

It's already added, dziubek. In the script, Tomcat wrote

IF /I "%THACATS%"=="Y" SET DELCATS=1

The /I switch results in a case insensitive comparison. So "y" should work as well as "Y".

btw, would this cat removal an option that the new test release already shows? i mean, i did not see it using the test release cmd ... how can this be done?

Not sure if someone answered your question yet, but to remove the CAT files, you need the modified SFC*.DLL in FIX (of course, use the correct one for your OS). After the multiboot path screen, the script will ask you whether to remove the catalogs.

@Kiki Burgh - Ohhh, I see. We just had a filename mixup. You had "sfc_files.dll ... is not quite well compatible with winXP" but you meant SFC.DLL, not SFCFILES.

SFC.DLL without the word "files" in it is, in fact, for Windows 2000 only, as TP directs. SFCFILES is, after all, only just a list. So nothing to see here :lol:

@Camarade_Tux - Damian advocates just SFCFILES replacement. I have corresponded with him in the past and what he is referring to is only SFCFILES being emptied out. Note he says "So WFP is on" in paragraph 3. So, to have WFP off, use a modified SFC.DLL or SFC_OS.DLL and to avoid the OS loading up a list of protected files use also an empty SFCFILES.DLL. In other words, see my post above called the "overkill" method.

@Everybody

Anyway, everybody make sure you've added yourself to the HFSLIP world map.

@Super-Magician

thanks for explanation :)

Standing by for documentation changes.

On a different subject... SFCFILES.DLL by the way works on ALL versions of Windows, just to clear that up. SFC.DLL and SFC_OS.DLL are different matters entirely. You can use SFCFILES.DLL and no other modified binaries and SFC will be disabled. To recap, for the confused :D

@fdv

When I used file sfcfiles.dl_ I had problem in T9 .

It sufficed to alter the name of file on sfc.dl_ problem would pass

@Tomcat (or anyone),

Do you know if any of the hotfixes released today supersede ones previously released?

KB912812 (IE)

KB911562

KB908531

KB911567 (OE)

Also - are you going to be updating your update lists?

The 912812 update supersedes 905915 and 910620 (IE 5.01SP4 only).

The 911567 update supersedes 823353, 887797, and 897715 on 2000 and XP SP1, and 887797 and 900930 on XP SP2.

the other 2 don't replace any updates to my knowledge.

@fdv - Can you shed some light on setupapi.dl_? Are these different for all the OSs?

With the latest round of hotfixes, there are some additional files that msft is putting on our systems. One is for the kb908531 update. Why are they forcing additional files on our systems now? Please stand by, I'm sure TC already figured out what's missing, but I sent him some tips on fixing up the script for this. Anyway, the fixes I had were for 2k only. I didn't test for XP.

thanks for these! :)

pardon me for the confusion ...

may i just know though where i could get the SFC*.DLL that would be compatible with my XPSP2 OS?

would there be anything else that i need to do other than this ... any editing for example?

From a different thread... SFC_OS.DLL

No editing is required. Just drop the file into FIX.

Can you shed some light on setupapi.dl_? Are these different for all the OSs?

not much other than the DLLs are indeed different. the edits to them are pretty much the same. i was never good with assembly. oleg clued me in to where the edits are, passed on from x-pert. he could tell us more of whats going on.

setupapi.dl_ is different on all OSs, but patching is the same (yet ;) ) - we just need to find right address. On the internet i saw couple methods for patching setupapi.dl_, but I prefer to stay on 8B FF 55 8B EC -> 33 C0 C2 30 00. If someone wants more info how to find right address in setupapi.dl_ - PM ;)

@EmRoD:

KB912812 should be OK now. I undid the fix for KB912945.

I don't know about KB911565 and KB904942. Nothing was changed in this regard.

I used HFSLIP_60412b.CMD

I have the problem, during the work HFSLIP:

Expanding WindowsXP-KB884883-v8-x86-PLK.exe

TEMP\SP2QFE\comctl32.dll

TEMP\SP2QFE\explorer.exe

The number of copied files: 2.

Or WORK \ I386E \ ASMS defines I will name the file,

if the folder in the target folder

(F = file, D = folder)?

what I have to choose : F or D?

EmRoD, I made a thread/topic for that. Just drop the "Apr2006_d3dx9_30_x86.cab" file into HFCABS, like for the previous DirectX for Managed Code updates.

(Just FYI, nothing will happen if you drop the XInput or XACT cabs into there as they aren't processed by HFSLIP.)

@Tomcat, did you receive the PM I sent you yesterday? It was just regarding the new hotfixes; you can actually disregard it now. I do have another question - will you be updating your update pages? I'd like to have a straight-forward list of what new hotfixes are needed and for which OS they are.

@Super-Magician...

It's gonna take another day or two. I'm drowning in work and barely have the time to update HFSLIP for the new hotfixes...

KB911565 continues to fail to install properly, even with the newest test release (60412c).

All other hotfixes are now slipstreamed properly.

I'll check it out. I wouldn't know what caused this, though. Nothing was changed there.

HFSLIP_60412d.7z is online now. Forgot to upload it... :D
