256 Tray Icon Patch for NT4

42 posts in this topic

This is patched version for W2K with IE6:

(5.0.3700.6690)

Did u do this patch yourself and if u did what Offset and bytes did u change?

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?:

(replaced with screencap of running winamp with hi-col icon in systray)

I Copied This to My C:\WINNT Dir, Nothing, I Use Taskman, and The Command Prompt to copy, did I screw up somewhere along the lines here?
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 :)

actually, I think I may have just patched version 4.72.3612.1700 of explorer.exe for NT4. I figured if only one area in version 4.72.3612.1700 of explorer.exe for Win95/98 needed to me edited, it may also apply for the NT4 version. I got both the 9x & nt4 versions of explorer.exe 4.72.3612.1700 from the ie4shl95.cab and ie4shlnt.cab files of IE 5.x and modded them in XVI32 hex editor.

I'll post up more info here to confirm my hunch later.

edited v4.72.3612.1700 of NT4's explorer.exe file in XVI32 hex editor and go to following address:

0x05750 [hex address 5750]

change 01 to 11 [aka. 0x01 -> 0x11] and save changes to this explorer.exe file.

My Explorer Info:

Windows 2000 Professional SP 4

Explorer Version: 5.00.3700.6690

Thanks in Advance Dude

There's a newer explorer.exe file for Win2000 SP4 included in the KB324446 hotfix.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324446

KB324446 has explorer.exe version 5.0.3900.6920

does this one need patching too?

I am 100% sure it DOES.

Dudes at Msoft are too severely underpaid and overworked at fixing bugs to be distracted with such unimportant issues on their products such as proper icon's display ;)

PS

Perhaps we should open a new thread - and have it stickified and closed - with all patched explorer versions in attachments for those who don't know how to do it?

NT, 95, 98, 2000 all ver. need it, and AFAIR now we really have all versions finally patched (well, 5.0.3900.6920 needs to be patched too for sure, which Im sure someone will)

It is not a bad idea, but i think we might have some versions unpatched...
