Yes RyanVM's tracker is down, apparently he is trying to diagnose server problems with the forums at the moment.

unfortunately the RyanVM tracker site still has NOT worked on all the XP/Vista machines that I've tested today [produces error 404 message in IE/Opera/Seamonkey/Chrome/Safari browsers etc.]. barely 4 months since the problem and not a resolution in sight. very disappointing indeed. :(

Do we know whether the issues surrounding KB977165 impact on Win2k at all? I haven't updated my environment yet, so I could leave it out if need be...

It's indeed an unfortunate loss of a valuable resource, still you can get SP5 from MediaFire, eSnips or this guide's torrent.

Targaff:

According to Microsoft's preliminary investigation, the problems regarding KB977165 are due to a pre-existing rootkit on the affected systems.

attempting to download Win2k SP5.1 at either eSnips or MediaFire today.

btw, pre-existing rootkit infects the atapi.sys file; if KB977165 is installed and you have an infected atapi.sys file, your system may end up in endless rebooting loop or you will experience BSOD crashes on every startup. so far KB977165 has not crippled my Win2k/XP computers as I have a "clean" atapi.sys file.

There should be an effectively final update to this list in about a week, the only items likely to change after that are updates to .Net, WMP9, MSXML and VC runtimes.

Note that with the end of support for Windows 2000 there has been a full file reorder, just run UpdatePrep.bat to reorder already downloaded hotfixes.

Except for updates to .Net, MSXML, VC++ redist or Adobe Flash (these are in the B archive) there are unlikely to be any new files for Windows 2000.

I may over the coming weeks tinker with the main post a bit, but I don't expect to make significant changes.

Hello,

The guide is very good until Installation Paragraph, so I could made all the steps until that and the Windows is working perfectly. But now I am not sure what to do with the files in AddOns, RunOnce maps. If I run the files separately won't work all of them, the Run1_W2Ksp5.bat, Run2_W2Ksp5.bat, Run3_W2Ksp5.bat, Run4_W2Ksp5.bat, Run5_W2Ksp5.bat files are do nothing. These files are in the main folder of the CD image, right?

I would appreciate very much, if someone could describe me from Installation--> Run1_W2Ksp5.bat paragraph.

Beginning with the sentence "Here is how it works:" the rest of the guide describes how the install is automated and various options, you don't have to do anything with the information if you don't want to.

Think of it as similar to describing the workings of a car engine, you don't need to know how it works in order to drive, but if anything goes wrong or you want to customise your ride it's good to have that information available.

I still did not get it exactly. What about the files in AddOns, RunOnce maps and the Directx? I believed the RunX_W2Ksp5.bat will install these files automatically in order, but it did not. Actually what are these RunX_W2Ksp5.bat files doing? What will happen if I won't take these files into the installation disc?

Sorry for my incompetence :rolleyes:.

Did you not perform step 7 of the procedure?

7. Copy all the files and folders that you have downloaded, except those at \Hotfix and \Misc to your nLite working directory, maintaining the directory structure (\AddOns contains optional files, see notes part 1 & 3).

The screenshots 07A_Copy_These_Files.JPG and 07B_Final_Working_Directory.JPG clearly indicate what should be copied and what the final result should look like.

Updated the archives and torrent for the latest version of Adobe flash player.

Just some comments and suggestions (sorry for bad english):

  1. Adobe Flash Player can be safely replaced with FullFlash (3194369 bytes )
    This is silent installer.
    • small size
    • no litter in the system as official version
    • no autoupdate utilities
    • can be removed from "Add remove programs"

Now we can remove from source install_flash_player_ax.exe, sw_lic_full_installer.exe and install_flash_player.exe

rem%Source%RunOnce\install_flash_player_ax.exe -install

rem %Source%AddOns\install_flash_player.exe -install
rem %Source%AddOns\sw_lic_full_installer.exe /S

[*]Visual C++ can be safely replaced with repacked versions (VCR_05_x86.exe (1,505,513 bytes ) and VCR_08_x86.exe (2,794,735 bytes) - in the bottom of page)

It have to be launched with key /S:

VCR_05_x86.exe /S
VCR_08_x86.exe /S

vcredist_x86_2005sp1.exe and vcredist_x86_2008sp1.exe can be safely removed (by the way in your list they have the same size but it is wrong: - 2008 libraries has 4,485,976 bytes. So we can free 2,930,984 bytes.

But in addition we have to install runtime libraries (which aren't listed in your list at all) It is necessary to install Runtime Pack Lite (5,737,139 bytes MD5 139935be5a321845547c924a87e38820)

Silent installation:

RuntimePack_Lite_x86_x64.exe -y -gm2 -fm0

[*]DirectX

So if we want to install June Version of it we have to place in unpacked folder 3 cab files: BDANT.cab, BDAXP.cab, dxnt.cab

[*]SPTD new version 1.78

[*]Theres is one more thing about Java machine. Cab file is unsupported on winaddons so it is more useful to use Java SE v1.6.0.24. So im using Java SE JDK JRE v1.6.0.24 x86 (31 Mb) but can be used Java SE JRE v1.6.0.24 x86 (11,55 Mb). first package contain all necessary to many online games like Linage but...

  • java quick starter disabled
  • java autoupdate disabled
  • tray icon disabled
  • integration in all browser installed in system

Silent install:

Java_SE_JDK_JRE_x86.exe /S

[*]Silverlight

Nothing special just repacked version (6,178,271 bytes)

Silent install:

SLight.exe -gm2 -ai1

Quite an impressive first post there

As a general rule this guide tries to stick with the original official installers for two main reasons, firstly people are more likely to have confidence that there is nothing "off" about the original and secondly it's one less thing that can cause errors.

Only two non original installers are used, the SP5 pack itself, being as it is the basis of this guide and the repacked .Net installer due to it saving almost 100MB.

A repacked Direct X installer would also be nice, but all those I've tried give this install error

runinf.exe - Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point _aligned_malloc could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll.

or simply fail without any error message (as you seem to have discovered).

In the other cases the space savings are simply not enough (in my opinion) to justify replacing the original installer.

But hey, if the changes you've listed work for you, by all means go for it.

yea about it i all know... but for example java installer is very important part of every windows (most of sites use it) but not included in your list (neither officail or non-official). Link for addon is dead...

And runtime pack also - of course it is non official but very helpful in working with rare programs.

As for DX all June 2010 updaters need 3 files in their folder: BDANT.cab, BDAXP.cab, dxnt.cab - because these files were cut from (with unsupporting of w2k). Im working on DX repack now :) maybe sooon i will place it here.

As for adobe products and silverlight this of course isnt so important - i use them because they dont write anything in autolaunch (but this is very important thing for PC speed-uping), in very many cases non-official repacks are most useful neither official (for example Daemon tools toolbar - in your script there many lines for toolbar cleaning)

Microsoft update will prompt you to install KB973923 but all that does is add an outdated version of ATL80.dll (from Visual C++ 2005 SP1) to WinSxS.

Other changes:

  • Adobe Flash ActiveX must be downloaded separately as it's the only thing that regularly updates (4 times last month).
  • The torent now includes everything (except Adobe Flash ActiveX).
  • The silent installer for Grant Access created by dedalo27 is now used.
  • Added Libre Office to the supported applications list.
