I am still trying, it is undocumented for NT4 so it is a little harder.
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.
I should've think of that too...
Anyways, big thx!
I will try it as soon as i do another NT4 box :-)
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.
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
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)
