Most current DX addon?

Post by newsposter » Fri Apr 23, 2010 4:17 pm

Ok, my last client on XP has asked me to recommend for them an XP build config that they can call final, put to bed, and lock up in the fireproof safe.......

Can anyone here tell me which of the various DX addons are the 'most current'? Is redxii's addon from Feb 2010 (http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5687) still the gold standard or has someone build a newer/better one?

I know that 'current' is a relative term and that it's all relative. I am personally quite happy with reds work but I through I'd ask One More Time.

Thanks

Well, the Feb 2010 release is Microsoft's latest. Beyond that it's a matter of preference. I can't advise for 32-bit because I use x64.

I think you've posted the wrong link... redxii latest directx addon is from august 2009... http://integrator.siginetsoftware.com/i ... ons&id=227

I use yumeyao's one from here - http://www.esnips.com/web/yumeyao?docsPage=1#files - because it's the latest.

June 2010 DirectX update has been released by Microsoft. Look around these forums for updated addon.

Don't ask for a different configuration of Onepiece's XP AIO Update Pack: use one of the existing vanilla XP UpdatePack with your preferred addons instead

Nonno, I would like to ask you a few questions.


I created two nlited xp intallation cds in which, among others, I integrated DirectX June2010.

So, my first question is:
i. Should OnePiece_DirectX_AddOn_v1.8.0_For_WinXP_Post-SP3_INTL and an addon created with DXUPAC produce the same results?


After installation of the first cd, where I used the addon in the above post, at Add/Remove Windows Components appeared:
DirectX for Managed Code (28.5MB)
When I ran dxwebsetup.exe some extra components needed to be installed...(?) (I think about 6~10 MBs)

Using an addon created with DXUPAC and directx_Jun2010_redist.exe, at Add/Remove Windows Components appeared:
DirectX for Managed Code (28.5MB)
+ DirectX Post-SP3 Update (124.7MB !!)
Unforunately, I couldn't run dxwebsetup.exe as I couldn't connect to internet through VirtualBox

So, lastly:
ii. What should appear under Windows Component Wizard?
iii. Is it rational that some "extra" components need installation even after integration or wasn't the addon correctly slipstreamed?

Thanks in advance!

Classic addon and Do-it-yourself addon must be just alike, and dxwebsetup wouldn't show any extra components needed, unless .net installation fails and Mdx isn't correctly registered.

Redownload .net addon from here: http://voidseesaw.com/onepiece/OnePiece ... 56506D1.7z
and compare it with the one you have created with DXUPAC latest build (Sep. 16th). Please report differences.

If you want to retest it use an untouched XP SP3 using RVMIntegrator
