Maybe I don't know what I'm talking about here (so don't shoot, Mr.), but if you can't get VMWare to work, there is always MS Virtual PC 2007.

That's not quite the issue, Stimpy. Thanks for offering help though. :)

He has it under control.

Just one of them: After installing Windows XP Pro with SP3, drivers and programs, Add or Remove section from Control Panel is open very slow
(took one minute untill the list is populated). Tested without .NET Framework, VMWare and other "goodies".

Is it really necessary that Windows has to re-figure out just what's installed anytime you open Add/Remove programs? Is it really that difficult for it to know what's installed?

No, a minute's not long but taken into perspective it is a lot longer than it should be.

Of course, I don't consider this to be a SP3-specific annoyance.

ARP just enumerates a section of the registry. Among other things, it finds registry entries to tell it where to find the icon for each entry and the directory location for each entry (which accounts for why a 1MB program will read 1GB or so if it's located in \system32).

Yes, but you can also use redxii's XP SP3 Update Pack 062008-r03 in the meantime, also.

All I can tell you , masterm, is that Ryan is working on it with a release date of "soon." I can't provide any more detail than that because I don't know more than anybody else here at the moment.

I'm guessing that I've probably missed a post or two...

I know Ryan said that he'd occasionally update the SP2 pack, but it doesn't appear that's been done recently. I didn't see anything in the other update packs forums. Is anyone keeping up with SP2?

Thanks Ryan for ur continued support to Post SP2 updates.

I read the post for Ver. 2.2.3. Could u give us a rough estimate on when its expected.

Had already started preparing for a new build when i saw ur post. Now it wud be prudent to wait for ur Update.
Thanks again.

I've got both the Post-SP2 and Post-SP3 packs in sync right now. I've been very aggressive this week in getting both almost ready for release so that as soon as soon as I get home from work on Tuesday, I can add the new security updates and get the packs released.

In other words, I'm expecting to release both updated packs on Tuesday.
