Build 5.1.2195 Released - Download Now

52 posts in this topic

Hi Gurgelmeyer. sorry I wasnt able to follow up my old topic about the FP2k KB838018 hotfix. I was busy in the other side of the MSFN forums site.

It is included in the 5.1.2195.21 release. :rolleyes:

wonder if the KB139071 OLE automation hotfix is or will be included in your unofficial Win2k SP5 pack.

Files are build 4528; replaces the previous 4526 build from KB886765. MS KB article 139071:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/139071

I have this Win2k hotfix. someone sent it to me. let me know if you need it.

That is not included - yes, I need it ;)

/G B)

PS - @-I- - Cool - I might need some compression stats later on :)

I have sent the KB139071 win2k hotfix to MDGx and it's mentioned on his web site. you can get it here directly:

My thanks to Gurgelmeyer for this great contribution.

I did notice that update KB832414 for MSXML 2.5 (msxml.dll 8.0.7002.0) is not included.

I am not sure how useful or necessary this update is if later versions of MSXML are also installed. Nor am I certain how this update plays together with current updates of Internet Expolorer, or if it has somehow been made obsolete.

KB832414 has been totally changed from its original appearance. It no longer has a download link to this update but points on to KB887606 which only covers later versions of MSXML.

Anyway, the download link for this update can still be found at MDGx's site on the page for Internet Explorer.

P.S. Edited addition (made after the following post by -I-):

I just noticed that my laptop at work, which has XPSP2 installed by IT people, and where I do not have admin rights, also has the updated msxml.dll file among others. So I guess that at least it probably is not harmful.

The KB832414 update for MSXML 2.5 is obsolete, Inki and XML 2.5 is buggy. Anyway, KB832414 is replaced by KB887606. Upgrade to MSXML 2.6 which fixes problems with XML 2.5 and then apply the KB887606 update for XML 2.6.

MSXML.DLL version 8.0.7002 is included in Windows XP SP2 and Windows Server 2003 SP1.

Thank you for your information on KB832414.

The question I had in mind but failed to spell out is: Since W2k contains MSXML 2.5/msxml.dll by default, is it better to

- leave it as it is, or

- upgrade it to the latest version 8.0.7002 with KB832414?

My uninformed guess is that with later versions of MSXML (2.6/msxml2.dll, 3.0/msxml3.dll, etc.) installed it probably does not matter very much. Like erpdude8 said above, later versions fix problems with 2.5, and I guess they take care of most of the business anyway. (I do have them on my system.)

Still, based on what I have understood I would choose to also upgrade the msxml.dll file, because:

- New versions of MSXML after 2.5 do not replace files for older versions, there may be some parallel functioning (?)

- One would (naïvely, perhaps) expect the newer msxml.dll file to be less buggy, just in case if it might be used.

- Microsoft in its grand wisdom has decided to include the upgraded msxml.dll file in XPSP2 and 2003SP1.

- It satisfies my personal desire for completeness :rolleyes: .

So you can also read my post as a humble between-the-lines suggestion that maybe there might be a case for including KB832414 for MSXML 2.5 in the Unofficial Service Pack. Of course, this might be a bad idea, but I would not know, as my reasoning is no better informed than what you can read above :blushing: .

I only have a CD where I had integrated SP4 using Nlite. I want to add USP 5.1. Can I do that or do I need to still have a virgin Windows 2k CD? Also is there anyway to edit the registry in Nlite so I can load progman or another shell as my default desktop?

I tried to Nlite an Nlited source and ttried to slipstream from an Nlited source - they both failed to

make anything useable. Never tried to USP an Nlited source.

As for changing shells.. example: single user change

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\WinShellEx]

"Default"="GeoShell"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\WinShellEx\GeoShell]

"Start"="c:\\geotest\\GeoShell.exe"

For all users:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

"Shell"="LiteStep.exe"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

"Shell"="c:\\litestep\\LiteStep.exe"

etc etc. exact steps will be explained in docs for your new shell.

you should do that from $oem$\cmdlines.txt

just start a batch file and reg merge tweaks.reg or regedit /s regtweaks.reg

but id recomand doing it asap in your install and dont wait for runonceEx and the shell is than alread loaded (partly)

Microsoft is committed to Win2k until 2010. Microsoft does release an ISO of their own for security updates.

Many critical patches released June 13

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/ms06-jun.mspx

Can we please have new iso updated to june patches?

I have never seen so many patches in one month, does it mean microsoft is stopping their patches of win2k soon?

B that is only avail for users with a SA licence

C it will in most cases not contain Case-Specific Fixes

Dirtwarrior is saying no. That he e-mailed gurglemeyer and he had a relapse of some kind. The future of USP 5 looks bleak.

@Gurgel,

I sent an email to your gmail account this morning regarding a few hotfixes.

Also, would you like a new topic made to keep track of hotfixes?
