256 Tray Icon Patch for NT4

42 posts in this topic

Originaly intended for use in NT4 Visual Update Project (btw. awergh thank you for giving me an idea)...

As I saw that there is no done explorer.exe patch so i did one myself...

There isn't one on Dr Hoiby's site so i had to find another solution...

Enjoy...

Yes I've figured it out.

I didn't check version of the patched one (4.0.1381.282) and I swapped 4.72.3612.1700 (the shell updated one) with it like some moron :blushing:

Im sure it works fine on a non-shell updated NT4. I just changed my previous post, my apologies for false alarm ;)

Which offset/bytes do I have to change?

TIA

Try upgrading to IE6 cuzz i see u are running IE5.0 am i right? This version is undocumented for patching and a rare one ... If u cannot upgrade or update your exporer upload your explorer.exe and i'll try doing something... But I cannot promise....

Yes of course :rolleyes:

/edit/

same as everyone else does:

0x

...088E6

...14E1D

...14E2E

9th byte in each; 0x01 -> 0x11

Im running w2k on almost all of my machines.

Is this 256-colors system tray enough for ya?:

Well, this I cannot tell...

It is from my w2k system [edit: ENGLISH W2K] (as in the screencap above) standard issue w2k pro with sp4 and ie6 (and all updates, but that doesnt matter)

I dont know what ya did, but thats how i always do it the easy way:

I copy patched explorer to \winnt directory as explorer.new

restart in safe mode with command prompt

rename original explorer.exe to explorer.ori (REN EXPLORER.EXE EXPLORER.ORI)

rename patched explorer from explorer.new to explorer.exe (REN EXPLORER.NEW EXPLORER.EXE)

restart

and voila, it must work... (all ofcoz must be done with admin priviledges or as admin) so I dont know what you did there, used taskman to kill explorer process and replace old explorer with new explorer at command prompt? (thats what it seems to me from what you wrote) IMHO it should work too... did u rebooted? Didnt you have message from WFP about file missing or being wrong and it was relaced with "correct one" or something?

Reason for edit: Please do not post full sized images!

hmmm... whats the deal with that LOL

I am still trying, it is undocumented for NT4 so it is a little harder.

Cool, I'll wait for you and do something else then (Ive found few USB1 & USB2 device drivers for NT4, I'm going to combine them to one "universal" USB driver for NT4 SP6 :)
