Very useful thread. Thanks :)

And ugh @ 319740 - that's a regression. The problem existed in XP RTM, was fixed in SP1, and is now back in SP2. :evil:

Great! YGPM.

I think I should do the same for the GDI one.

EDIT: Requested

Yeah, I thought I remembered seeing that when I was looking through that list awhile back (someone posted a similar link in Hulk's thread over at MSFN). Funny stuff :lol:

keytotime, you have the whole NT-kernel with that hot-fix, wonder if they have that hotfix in Dutch :|
If not I'll have to use Reshcker, but that wouldn't be such a problem :wink:

Added some more hotfixes

If these hotfixes are not available in download and that you request them to Microsoft, i guess you'll get them in english. So we can say goodbye to the translated versions of your pack ...

I won't request the french version of these hotfixes since i don't own a licensed copy.

Then, i think you should create a new version of the pack with critical hofixes only (those will be available for anyone).

You're not getting the ones which have been superceded, right? Just making sure ;)

And you most definitely deserve a huge round of applause for your work. Thanks :)

And for the record, the next release will be version 1.1, because it's going to be a big one :D

@keytotime
@RyanVM

Hi Guys,

I suspect this question may appear a bit cheeky but is there any possibility that you would postup or make available the new hotfixes you have aquired for download? :)

The reason I ask is that I'm working on a post SP2 hotfix update script and would love to be able to include these new hotfixes in this.

Clearly if you felt this was a useful idea then I would be happy to make this available for anyone else to use.

If the answer is no then I would understand, however if you thought this was a good idea, then I for one would be happy :-)

Kind Regards

Simon

I don't think it'd be a wise idea for us to post them in that way. You can always email Microsoft and ask for them, though ;)

Hi RyanVM,

I thought you would probably say that, but I thought I would ask anyway :) Someone was bound to ask so it might has well be me.

What sort of thing do you e-mail to MS when requesting these hotfixes?

Just a basic request for it, or do you make up a cunning e-mail which references the symptoms in the hotfix and hope they will send it to you?

Kind Regards

Simon

I have no idea what keytotime's been saying, but I just made up a story about working on a GDI SVG renderer and needing the hotfix :lol:

I'll be testing them in VirtualPC prior to release (as always).

Get ahold of me on IM and I'll send it to you for testing once it's in a useable state.

There's also some update for some Tablet 2005 Edition file on your Windows XP CD (inkobj.dll in cmpnents\TabletPC)

I don't think it's necessary to include files that don't even get installed by default with the update pack, what do you think?

Fair Enough :-)

It seems as if you guys are well on your way to getting all of the current "unpublished" hotfixes.

I am sure the next release of the pack will be worth waiting for; i'm looking forward to seeing it already.

Sad eh? :D

Kind Regards

Simon

It's on request.
Looking at the file versions, I strongly doubt this file is for SP2. I've seen a few occasions now KB articles with the wrong keywords on them (post-SP2 fixes without the presp3 keyword and so forth).

Keytotime, please look at the file version. For Windows XP SP2 files should be 5.1.2600.2180 / 6.0.2900.2180 or higer. You didn't have to request for KB840837

KB884573 should be on the list. KB888111 could be too, but that's not really a hotfix as much as it is a new feature.

That HIGH-definition audio support, does that work with all hardware, or is it a driver for just some expensive audio cards?
