For example with Tain's case. He ran the wordpad reducer, meaning he didn't want it. He also had it in the hfexpert. So either he wants it or he doesn't want it. See what I mean? Catch 22.

Addons avoid this situation altogether, correct?

The basic purposes are not changed: HFCLEANUP is used to remove stuff and HFEXPERT is used to add stuff.
I'm only changing a con into a pro:
Old con = HFCLEANUP removes files that are added through HFEXPERT
New pro = HFEXPERT\WIN can be used (misused) to override decisions of HFCLEANUP

I vote for Tomcat's method...my reasoning is that HFCLEANUP is a bundle that I anticipate downloading/unzipping whenever a new version is posted whereas HFEXPERT/WIN is all mine...I would rather just update HFLCEANUP and forget about it. No worries about deconfliction on the user's part such as combing through the reducers and deleting things or worrying about what is new.

How's KB912945 doing?


@dziubek
Is everything OK with CDImageGUI?


:( no, this addon doesn't install still.

KB912945 integrated faultlessly.

This is what happens when people post & host untested Application Add On CAB files.

According to the INI settings of the CDImage AAO, the files should be all in the system32 folder. No biggie there. Reading deeper, the file naming scheme is this
CDImagex.cpi ->renamed to CDImageGUI.cpi
CDImage.exe ->not renamed
CDImage.cpl ->not renamed

This doesn't work. Instead, the files should be this:
CDImagex.cpi ->not renamed
CDImage.exe ->renamed to CDImageGUI.exe
CDImage.cpl ->not renamed

This doesn' work for me:

CDImagex.cpi ->not renamed
CDImage.exe ->renamed to CDImageGUI.exe
CDImage.cpl ->not renamed

As I told often: cpl looks for same named cpi, so
CDImagex.cpi ->renamed to CDImage.cpi
CDImage.exe ->renamed to CDImageGUI.exe
CDImage.cpl ->not renamed

seems the solution

My thoughts too, Murvun.

@dziubek:
Check 60316a when it's out. I'm working around this issue. When the author updates his/her addon, it will still work.

I'd like to release a new final this week when there are no issues with LegitCheckControl.dll and KB912945. Dziubek said all's fine with KB912945 but I'd prefer more confirmations.

The HFEXPERT change will not be implemented yet. It still remains to be seen that there are no nasty side effects so it will only exist in a test release for now.

If KB912945 got installed properly using HFSLIP_60315c.CMD then you don't need to test HFSLIP_60316d.CMD for that. The LegitCheckControl fix was updated again, though, so you can test it for that.

@Tomcat: I am having an issue with the 'expert' version of HFSLIP. Every time I run it i get this:

The entry "ntkrnlmp.exe" in the [SourceDisksFiles]section of the INF file is corrupt or missing

Whereas running the same config with the 'normal' HFSLIP runs flawlessly. I have HFCLEANUP and HFEXPERT/WIN folders.

This is another on-my-lunch input...so more diagnosing will be done later. Reports are attached.

That's a weird message. Do you get that during Windows installation?
I wonder what INF file is being referred to...

Yes, I got that during the first phase of installation....about 20secs into the process. Will debug later; gotta run to class now.

I think I know what the problem is. Give me a little while...

Edit:
No. What I was thinking of is not the issue. Would you mind giving me the txtsetup.sif and dosnet.inf files from SOURCESS\I386?

Not a single problem with the latest test build HFSLIP_60316d.CMD neither concerning the legitcheck fix nor any hotfix.

Finally got rid of the "famous" Microsoft Update issue :

Following this info

I simply backed up the dataStore.ebd file like BoardBabe said, and created a sfx, placed it in the HFSVPK folder and tada that's it. :thumbup

I have reordered quite a lot in 60317a-expert. Hopefully everything works as intended.

Updated again. I assumed a particular working folder would be empty when HFEXPERT stuff is processed so I used that, but apparantly it's not empty. This caused everything to be processed twice. Thanks Tommy.

A couple of issues with 17b:

1)
*.cpl/*.cpi seems to still be an issue. My task scheduler control panel entry has an odd name (bad ascii?) and doesn't run (17b w/HFCLEANUP but not HFEXPERT). I have also been having an odd problem with HFEXPERT/WIN/SYSTEM32...I have a 5k .cpi in there that consistently ends up as a 128kb .cpi with the original filename. Not sure how the transformation takes place. I have been fighting that particular issue for several days using different versions (expert and normal) and different configs.

2)
60317b-expert + HFCLEANUP: Good to Go (GTG)
60317b-expert + HFEXPERT:

"Line 1 of the INF file is invalid"

about 10secs into setup. That run had a really jacked up txtsetup.sif. I will run HFSLIP with HFEXPERT again so that I can post the txtsetup.

Zip w/errors and funky TXTSETUP.SIF is attached...along with the DOSNET file detailed below:

In reference to my cpi/cpl problem:
I have three files named myuninst.* in HFEXPERT/WIN/SYSTEM32. They are .CPL, .CPI, and .EXE.
In my SOURCESS I get myuninst.CP_ (containing the CPL) and myuninst.EX_....the .CPI doesn't seem to get integrated although it is listed in SOURCESS's DOSNET and the funky TXTSETUP. Not sure if the errors are connected, but my previous post mentioned a 128k version of the .CPI. You guessed it...the proper CPL is 128k so it seems that the proper CPL is getting installed as the right CPL as well as the wrong CPI. The proper 5k CPI isn't in SOURCESS.

There was a path issue in the HFEXPERT section of the test releases. After I got rid of it, things seemed to go fine. I have a "normal" txtsetup.sif and dosnet.inf after letting HFSLIP run till the end.

I'll take a look at the CPI issue now.


Edit...
The missing CPI issue should be fixed. I forgot to separate the wheat from the chaff. I also let CAB files pass though I don't know if that's useful.

Cool, thanks for the quick fixes. I'll get this started tonight and report back in the morning.
I have a big test next week so I will be studying all weekend and taking breaks to work on HFSLIP for fun. Isn't that sick? :wacko:
