Re: RyanVM Update Pack 2.0.2a - Released January 17, 2006

Version 2.0.2a has been released. It is recommended that those of you who previously downloaded 2.0.2 update to this version. Below is an addon CAB to upgrade 2.0.2 to 2.0.2a Forgive me if this has already been asked, but is there anything those of us who already setup machines with 2.02 need to fix?

Not just the "non-essentials" from Microsoft but also the little things like the updated calculator and such? 2) Why not do all the integration with nLite? WHat's the advantage of using both inegrat...

Since the changes in how the pack works, and with all the new add-on packs, I find it very difficult to know what to install. I'm a geek, I even workied in technical support for Microsoft and ran networks for many large firms, and I still can't keep up with the overwhelming number of options. I'd re...

Re: The future of the RyanVM Update Pack

As of next month's security releases, the main update pack will be scaled back to contain only the publicly available MS hotfixes along with a select few request-only fixes (such as KB888111 and fixes which specifically postdate other files fixed by public updates).

Is there anything WRONG with nlite? I thought I read somewhere here that it doesn't handle something right?

Can nlite use all thee of Ryans packs (patches, WMP, adn add-on)?

Is there any advantage one way or the other to use nlite or the ryanvm integrator?

After downloading all the updates from that page for July and August, you can use nLite to integrate them (or manually if you know how). Obviously it would be easier to just wait for the 1.3.0 update pack, but for those who absolutely, positively, 100% must clean-install now, add the July & August ...
