I just integrated 1.1.6 into XP Home SP3 and QFEcheck reports all is well and sigverif shows everything clean.
No problems.
Well done! :)

*Edit
Tested on Pro as well, no problems.

the silly timezone patch seems to be confusing people.

in OnePiece's pack Jan 2009 I think he has a newer version than you...
3.3.0-100113: added KB972270 (supersedes KB961371-v2), KB975167 (supersedes KB957579), KB978125, (supersedes KB977748), KB974841-v2 (supersedes KB970238); updated MRT to v3.3.
Yet on my spare PC I checked for updates after patch tuesday in Dec and it said a version before KB977748 was required and still not saying it needs anything later ???

KB978125 is newer than KB977748. Microsoft seems to have wiped the newer article from existence, yet still has the update package available. I don't know what to make of that logic...

Neither of the above are high priority updates. Each is meant to replace KB976098-v2, which was the last high priority time zone update released to date. The two later updates above will be included in the next high priority time zone update, most likely to be released in August if their previous schedule holds.

Besides an update to TZChange.exe, the following registry entries were added/updated from KB977748 to KB978125:

RapidShare is being super lame right now. I've been trying to download it for hours but I'm constantly getting errors about the servers being overloaded.

Does anyone have a mirror link?

Anyways, thanks for your hard work on this update pack!

Hi user_hidden, thanks again for your update pack. It rocks!

Just noticed that in my most recent builds, Windows Update reports that i need to install this hotfix -- kb956572: Description of the security update for Windows Service Isolation (April 2009)

I can easily add this hotfix to my post-install scripts just thought i'd see what you thought -- i see you have already have it included in v1.1.6_20100112 so its either something up with my build or something recent that MS has done that necessitates a small mod to the pack. Any ideas?

Regards,
Soporific.

PS -- i'm pretty sure that this hotfix only started to appear as 'not yet installed' in the last week or so. The first few builds using v1.1.6_20100112 didn't have this ... i could easily be wrong though :)

KB956572 shows "current on system" with qfecheck.
perhaps it is one of your addons in integration that is causing your error.
the hotfix in the update pack is fine.

This is a known problem with rapidsuck. The only suggestion is what you tried...waiting 2-3 min between tries until successful. I've been trying for over an hour without success.

To my surprise, after testing new XP install disk, using XPSP3_QFE_UpdatePack_1.1.7_20100122,
Windows Update asks to download and install KB978207, which is already included in the pack?

Thank you user_hiden!

You have mentioned using OnePiece's IE8 addon. The addon you are using appears to be out of date. user_hidden includes the IE6 version of KB978207. Please download and use the most recent version of the IE8 addon that also includes the IE8 version of KB978207.

Thanks user_hidden

I tried to move back to just windows update for a disk I'm making for someone else.

I used an old tool that didn't work, this time I used OnePiece's addon from his packs it removed Microsoft update... but it looks like the Windows update files are missing so of course I didn't get the desired outcome.

Could you help offer a good solution ?

@user_hidden

By my (long) experience, the best Post SP3 Update Packs are OnePiece and XPSP3_QFE but,
OnePiece has to much in it and it takes lot of time to run RVM several times to get rid of unwanted and
XPSP3_QFE is missing IE8 and WMP11, leading to unnecessary integration of WMP9 and IE6 updates!

Since nonno fabio is very strict with his "Don't ask for a different configuration of... ",
I kindly ask you to include IE8 and WMP11 in XPSP3_QFE and make it the best ever solution for Post SP3 Update of XP!!!

I thank you for your great work, appealing that you make it even better.

at this time i will not add wmp11, ie8, dx9, silverlight, etc.....

you can use stand alone addons for each of those which are readily available on the forums.

IE8 -> Onepiece or Yumeyao
DX9 -> Redxii
WMP11 -> Onepiece or Yumeyao
Silverlight -> user_hidden :)

i only gave a few examples above.

You can as well build addons with Onepiece's Addon Creator.

i find it better when you add what YOU want to the integration.

...second that motion...

I have been using both user_hidden's update pack and his dotNet installer along with with yumeyao's WMP11 and IE8 addons as the foundation for all my builds. Everything has been solid as a rock for quite some time now.

FWIW, my installs are typically using winnt32, which generally imposes somewhat stricter compliance with M$'s conventions...and this group of four has performed flawlessly. I note, again FWIW, that some of the work from other authors while functioning perfectly under a CD install, will not function when installing through winnt32....presumably the standards compliance is the root of such issues....but, user_hidden and yumeyao are golden...

...yet another "Thank You" to "u_h" and "yy"... :!:

@user_hidden

Thank you for your kind answer.

Let me elaborate a little bit my suggestion.

There are tree Post SP3 Update Packs:

1. RyanVM Post-SP3 Update Pack
Minimal (only hot and security updates) and usualy outdated.

2. Onepiece XP Post-SP3 AIO Update Pack
Maximal (AIO), regularly updated, but with lot of work to remove unwanted addons.

3. XPSP3_QFE_UpdatePack for Windows XP Post-SP3
Optimal, regularly updated, but without IE8 and WMP11, which by my opinion
should be standard part of update packs.

I have used your Pack for testing and working installations with excellent results (thank you)
in combination with OnePiece IE8 and WMP11 addons.

To avoid unnecessary integration of updates for IE6 and WMP10 I kindly (again)
suggest to you to consider upgrade your pack with IE8 and WMP11.

Further addons like:

WinRM = Windows Remote Management
PowerShell = Powershell v2 console
PowerShellISE = Powershell Integrated Scripting Environment (graphical Powershell)
Silverlight = Silverlight
DirectX = DirectX Updates
MDX = DirectX for Managed Code
MSXML4 = MSXML 4
WDSearch = Windows Desktop Search
IMAPI2 = Image Mastering API v2
ICCDSCD = Smart Card Driver
WgaNotify = Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications
WRMC = Windows Rights Management Core
BitLockerToGo = BitLockerToGo Reader

should be options as separate addons.

Thank you very much for your time and attention!

I'm for keeping the base the way it is. Integrating additional components into the pack will only cause additional work for the maintainer. We are lucky that u_h is even making his update pack available to us as a replacement for the original RyanVM one. It is not a big deal to specify additional addons during an integration. I find it more flexible. I guess u_h needs to have the same policy as nonno fabio :mrgreen:

Asking doesn't hurt, but as you can see, others have a different opinion than yours . In the end u_h needs to decide what he wants to do and he has stated that quite clearly. Remember, the update pack is volunteer work like all the other goodies available here. They may cease at any time as seen before..

@phox:
I partly agree with you.

WMP9 is really old and deserves removing/updating to 10/11.
At the very lease, its runtimes (Windows Media Foundation) should be up-to-date.

but I think IE6 update is needed even though Microsoft Update doesn't push it. One file comes from IE6's update needs updating even if IE8's insatalled.


Also I've noticed the significant disk size boost with such never-used components like WinRM, Smart Card Encryption. So as a result, I'm only keeping KB922120 and MSI4.5 in my under-building next Chinese Update Pack. That's all I think useful.
IMAPI is good but when you buy a computer/burner/laptop there are always OEM licensed professional burning/imaging software provided.
Then smart card is something we'll never use unless you are a Counter-Man/Girl.
And for WinRM, if some one wants it, it's very easy to install it later.
For exFAT, there're not any perfect solution that let windows to activate exFAT at the very beginning, enabling windows to be installed on a partition formatted with exFAT, so I see it's pointless.


Also there is a mistake since Ryan's pack, KB943729 / KB974266 is only for pro. don't know whether they are applicable(able to install) on home, but according to the KB article description, it's an update related with Group Policy. Definately home doesn't have such a feature.

That's all I think, when I have started to review the whole pack.

Best regards.

I'm all for keeping the pack "as is" .... everyone can add whateva they need.......someone might prefer WMP10 over 11
