Just finished rebuilding it from the ground up.. bed time now and testing tomorrow. Release late evening If all is well.

Sorry for the wait :?

EDIT:
Man i forgot what a mission it is to start from scratch.. final testing stages taking longer than anticipated (because i try to make it as light as possible), however i can now forsee a definite release date of no later than 26th August 2006 :)

As promised Aug update is now live. I`ve rebuilt the pack from the ground up, as i do now and again, so you`ll have to slipstream it into a fresh source for the cleanest integration.

Please any problems let me know straight away. :)

Aren't those new files? I can't find them in the original I386 directory...

RVMintegrator

But I mean that I cant find them on the original XP SP0 Source CD...
So I quess they are brand new files and than you have to declare them in the dosnet section of the enties.ine file
But there are no references in the entries.ini file for these files... (except to cab them)

I downloaded a list on MS site but here

http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=31886

it's written that those 2 KB's (KB885626 and KB873374) are mandatory.

So I'm asking you guys if it's really advised to install it. It's not included in the two packages from Xable and Booogy

Your very welcome :)

v2.0.3 b1 up check first post for changelog and download.

Now, As the inf is useless after it has done it`s job during install from v2.0.3 i`ll be removing it to make the pack even cleaner and lighter 8)

Note:
For some people, not all, 900485 and 920872 (both driver updates) are showing on MU after a clean install, I removed these updates from the lasest release because for me they don`t show. It seems depending on your hardware they may or may not show so I`m either going to add them back into the next release or make a seperate package for them.

In the mean time v2.0.3 b1 is up for you to play with. Grab it, break it then give me some feedback ;)

Haven't had the chance yet, 2.0.2 just works! :D
About the 2 hotfixes: I can't say for sure because I have a set of hotfixes that I apply immediately after Windows installation and 920782 is one of them :/
My guess is that they will only show up when the components that are being updated are actually in use. For example, soundcard + drivers installed --> KB920782 shows up an WU because the 3 SYS files are in use. If you have a soundcard with no drivers installed then all 3 SYS files are not loaded and WU will not try to update them. I could be totally wrong of course...

I still see the INF file in the root directory of the archive... :?
Anyway, just slipstreamed and burned it to CD with no issues :)

I should think so too.. it adds the registry entries, creates shortcuts and registers dll`s. It does this at T-13 minute stage during GUI Setup when svcpack.inf executes it. After this it has no purpose so it gets deleted by an autoit script which is ran from runonce at first login.

Hey X,
I used your latest updatepack the other day and I came across one error. It was pertaining to the opuc.dll file. I got a file read error in txtmode. It claimed to be an invalid file for some reason. Maybe it was curropt in some way?

I guess it could be possible that my beta programs messed something up... But I thought I'd notify you so you can look into it.

I was able to fix the error by replacing the opuc.dll file in the updatepack with the opuc.dll file in your old Office Update engine addon.

Once I fixed that it worked flawlessly and everything seemed to be perfect.

This is a great updatepack for people who want to have all critical updates integrated and not need to worry about the optional updates.

I did seem to notice a critical update for Windows Media Player 9.

Can`t reproduce that and knowone else has reported it, which leads me to believe you have a corrupt download. Try downloading again.
Siginet wrote:I guess it could be possible that my beta programs messed something up... But I thought I'd notify you so you can look into it.
Yep if you already re downloaded my pack to rule out a corrupt download then this is the next suspect.
Siginet wrote:I was able to fix the error by replacing the opuc.dll file in the updatepack with the opuc.dll file in your old Office Update engine addon.
That reminds me to update that addon.. noticed the dll was updated again the other day :lol:
Siginet wrote:Once I fixed that it worked flawlessly and everything seemed to be perfect.
Thanx for confirmation. :)
Siginet wrote:This is a great updatepack for people who want to have all critical updates integrated and not need to worry about the optional updates.
Critical? No no.. This pack includes all high-priority updates which consist of the following types of updates:
Critical updates
Security updates
Service packs
Update rollups
Hence the name High-Priority Update Pack ;) Sorry that common misconception niggle`s at me everytime. :oops:
Siginet wrote:I did seem to notice a critical update for Windows Media Player 9.
Yep you should be seeing that (917734) aswell as 923689 because I use boooggy`s WMP addon, so, any high-priority WMP updates on MU replaced by boooggy`s WMP addon will not make it into my pack. Currently that`s just 917734 and 923689.

Well i hope that`s cleared up a few things for ya, anything else let me know. I`d appreciate it ;)

Xable,
I confirm the opuc.dll error. It IS Office Update-related. I Googled it and found others with this problem using an app called HFSlip:
http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=86844

I recommend using Siginet's fix.

I'm sure others have experienced this, but just ignored it. Remember, your Addon isn't used by as many people as booogy's or Ryan's. Not saying that they shouldn't. This was my first attempt myself. It just takes a while to catch on.

That being said...
Less people download it, try it, and WAY less will post. Ever notice how many people seed a torrent, yet comments and feedback on it are only 3, 7, or 10 posts?

Everything else looks good, though.
BTW, which booogy WMP pack are you using? 10 or 11?

Also, if you make your pack available to a wider audience, you might get more attention for your efforts. For example, you could offer a couple different flavors of your pack, like ricktendo often does. Say, one for people who use boooggyWMP10, another that's compatible to boooggyWMP11, and one for no WMP addon.

Just a suggestion. Try not to read too much into it.
:wink:

PS: I paused VMware when I got the copy error, then came here. I will finish the install and give you a heads-up,

aha so it`s microsoft`s products that are buggy not my pack :rolleyes:

opuc.dll has a bad header then, thanx for the info. I`ll release 2.0.4a shortly with the new version of office update engine and i`ll modpe it to correct the header.
RaGhul wrote:your Addon isn't used by as many people as booogy's or Ryan's.
It`s an update pack not addon and in fact udp.xable.net uses more bandwidth than boooggy.xable.net in a month and boooggy hosts a lot more files there :?

11
RaGhul wrote:Also, if you make your pack available to a wider audience, you might get more attention for your efforts. For example, you could offer a couple different flavors of your pack
Making different pack`s to get attention.. that`s not going to happen. The pack as it stands is exactly how i want it, i make it available for anyone who might like to use it. If knowone does, that`s fine. I`m not going to take it to heart ;)
RaGhul wrote:Say, one for people who use boooggyWMP10, another that's compatible to boooggyWMP11, and one for no WMP addon.
My packs "compatible" with any of the WMP addons.

Thanx, confirmation that it`s working and bugless is always reasuring for potential users.

Whoa, too fast!! (Hehehe)

Give me a chance to finish installing the first one before posting the fix, ok? :wink:

Just finished installing the previous one. Everything appears to be ok. Will now test this one.

After my XP cd's starting getting buggy a couple of weeks ago, I decided it was time to start from scratch. Using VRMPVOL_EN, then nLite to remove components, then this pack. Nothing else.

On first boot, I got the message about "setting up personalized settings". Didn't have that before. I'm thinking one of the WMP hotfixes included in the pack is causing this, and possibly the same goes for booogy'sWMP11 OOBE problem. Just thought I'd give you a heads-up. :wink:

BTW, looks like a great pack so far!!

As if all the hotfixes weren't bad enuf, M$ UPDATES ITS UPDATES!! (No, not a typo. Read it twice.)

Seems like the updates to MU, Office Update Engine, and others are what's causing these errors lately.

Thank u, Microsh**!!

Read carefully before posting. That's what I said. Hotfixes, not your addon. Just trying to help. The OOBE thing's really annoying. :wink:

Here's a screenshot of MU in 2.0.4:

That means its creating your %UserProfile% and adding the default settings for XP Themes, Programs like IE dotNet, etc, etc.

Now, I'm getting this error:
cannot copy SOFTKBD.DLL

Don't know if it's your pack or not. Only thing different from last time is I removed Printer and Scanner drivers, patched uxtheme.dll and SFC (nlite).

Can anyone else confirm (or deny)?

It's just one file, so I suspect MU or Office Update...

[EDIT]
Does anyone know what this is? Need help. Can't finish my CD. :(

[EDIT]
Found this in MSFN:
http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=23913

Looks like it might be a conflict between language support and Office Update... I think? (BTW, I remove all other languages in XP except English)
