I echo Jay's sentiments and also thank you very much for continuing this work. Sad that it will come to an end next April.

If the continued use of other versions of Windows like Win2K and even Win9x is any indication, not to mention the incredible popularity and market share that XP enjoys, I'm sure that there will be continued need of this, and other projects like it, for quite awhile.

Cheers and Regards

If you are talking about how long it takes to update XP I learned a trick from last time. Just download and install the IE update manually and then MU finds all the other updates in a few seconds.

Thanks for all your work on this project.

Does anyone know if the 100% cpu usage issues has been patched in this round of updates? I was suddenly and severely overwhelmed by this yesterday. Nothing I did would resolve it. I did everything that people recommended but no luck.

if anyone wants to add it to the 20131210 for now just open the archive with 7zip or rar and add/replace the file. nothing else needs to be done.

@user_hidden
If you also integrate the "Adobe Flash Player - Plugin" in your UpdatePack would this use a lot more place? If not, then it would help to reduce the Windows XP image size, because i think a lot of users include Firefox or Chrome in their Unattended Setup and like this it would not be required to include the whole 17 MB Adobe Flash again. ;)

user_hidden, What do you think about integrating also the "Adobe Flash Player - Plugin"? Would this not be helpful for users that integrate or install a second Browser?. :)

sorry I forgot to answer your first post about it.

my thoughts have been since firefox, chrome etc are not part of the OS
I don't include flash player for them. on the other hand IE is part of the
OS so including updates for the pluggin was added.

I haven't looked but aren't there stand alone addons for just flash player?

all that being said i'll check when I have time and see if i'll add the player.

I think the best way would be either to integrate the whole Adobe Flash Player into the UpdatePack or to completely remove it from the UpdatePack.
Because now if we integrate a second Browser we have to add the whole Adobe Flash Player core again into the Unattended Setup and this will only eat up precious disc space. ;)

I assume the UpdatePack will be frozen after April. Why create more work for something that can easily be integrated with a RunonceEx.cmd during installation?

I also agree with UH that the pack should only include things that are part of the OS. There are already addons to do this. We already had a similar situation before with the runtimes being included causing duplication if someone used an addon such as Ricks-YumeYao_MicrosoftVC78910RuntimeLibraries_MixedAddon where VC7 happened to be in both the UpdatePack and the Addon. Luckily this was not a problem. My vote is to leave things as they are.

I think you missed my last post the point of this was to save space so that we don't have to integrate the Adobe Flash Player core 2 times in a Unattended Setup if integrating a second browser.

And after April there will be still some updates only not over the free Windows Update Center.

Removing it would not be a good idea because there is no Flash Addon that combines the Flash Plugin and ActiveX togethe it one installer.

I vote to leave it as it is now! Why complicate things with the plugin integration, when it is needed only by Firefox (Chrome has the plugin integrated and Safari is not updated anymore for Windows)? I bet not a lot of users are integrating Firefox.

Outbreaker, if you want it so badly, why don't you integrate the Flash Plugin only (without ActiveX)? That's what addons are for.

That would not be logical:
XPSP3_QFE_UpdatePack + Flash ActiveX Integrated + Firefox/Chrome + Flash Addon (For the Flash Plugin) = 16 MB of CD space wasted.
XPSP3_QFE_UpdatePack + Flash Plugin and ActiveX Integrated + Firefox/Chrome = Only 1 MB more CD space needed.
You see what i mean? :D
If you install the Flash Plugin and the Flash ActiveX then you are installing the Flash core 2 times and thats not needed.
The best way would be if user_hidden would Integrated the Flash Plugin part in his UpdatePack because there is no Flash Addon that combines the Flash Plugin and ActiveX togethe in one installer.

I don't see what you mean. Most people are quite picky about the web browser they choose to use. A new web browser should not ever be part of an update pack in my not so humble opinion.

Microsoft has included the Flash Player ActiveX control in Windows XP from the beginning. It makes sense to update a component that is already included.

Since Windows XP does not include an internet browser that uses Netscape plugins (such as Firefox), there is no reason to integrate the Netscape plugin for Flash Player unless also integrating a browser that could use it. It's not a matter of how efficiently it could be included in an update pack; it's a matter of properly creating a small, efficient addon for just that plugin, and nothing else. This may require repacking the plugin installer to reduce its size, or dumping the installer altogether in favor of a proper addon that only adds files and registry entries. It can be done. It just hasn't been done yet.

If a Flash version is already integrated (ActiveX or Plugin) then it's not needed to integrate the whole Flash core again but only the 1 MB ActiveX or Plugin part.

It follows then, that an addon should be made to do just that.

That would be also a good alternative. An Addon like that would also work with every UpdatePack.

The problem in your search is that is missing the file for Flash plugin that is called NPSWF32_xx.dll, and is about 15 MB big. For my Italian UpdatePack, based on the gdr branch, I chose to remove the latest version of flash and just leave an old hotfix released shortly after the sp3, for flash 6 I think. The latest version is available as a separate addon and includes both ActiveX and plugin versions. It's based on a modification of file swflash.inf and additional files are grouped into a cab archive, roughly about 16 MB, which includes everything (32-bit version for xp). I decide to split into two different pack because it is assumed that after April the update pack will no longer be updated, while there will be new versions of Flash almost every month.

The following files together can be CABbed down to 7.78 MB. 7-Zip can reduce them to 7.16 MB using settings compatible with RVMi.
  • 856 B - flashplayer.xpt
    820 KB - FlashUtil32_12_0_0_43_Plugin.exe
    15.5 MB - NPSWF32_12_0_0_43.dll
    1.51 MB - plugin.vch
I believe all that should remain is determining the registry entries to add in an accompanying INF file. Add an entries*.ini and you'll have an efficient 32-bit addon. From there it would seem to be a (mostly) trivial matter of adding the ActiveX files and registry entries should it become desirable to stop updating an update pack directly when the only updates available are for Flash. The hardest part for me is gathering the registry entries. I have a script for that, but it only looks for the ActiveX entries at the moment.

In our Italian community we found that this section are added to the registry

HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Macromedia\FlashPlayerPlugin"
HKLM,"SOFTWARE\MozillaPlugins\@adobe.com/FlashPlayer"

And registering the file:
NPSWF32_%VerFileDll%.dll

It's missing the uninstall section, but it's on purpose.

Really?

because RegShot and InstallWatch Pro 2.5 (that the whole RyanVM Community use for many many years) they are not in the web, that work even better

A long time ago i was looking for something like that and the only thing i could find was "Active Registry Monitor" but i will definitely try out RegShot and InstallWatch if i need work with something like this again.

And registering the file:

It's missing the uninstall section, but it's on purpose.
Nice. But according to my results you're missing a couple keys. They change depending on the file version, which is the reason I had to write a script to capture everything. And according to my tests, registering NPSWF*.dll doesn't add any relevant registry entries--at least not yet. This is something I also test with a script.

I'm trying to do a Flash Plugin Addon for user_hidden UpdatePack but does someone know how to edit a line with "RVM Integrator" in a "*.inf" file?

That is explained in the RVMi online manual under [ExtraFileEdits] and [EditFile]. :)

Does anyone know why this "RVM Integrator" code below doesn't work?
[ExtraFileEdits]
i386\qfeUpPck.inf|HKCU<COMMA>"SOFTWARE\Macromedia\FlashPlayer"<COMMA>"FlashPlayerVersion"<COMMA>0<COMMA>"%FLASHPVERSION%"|HKCU<COMMA>"Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayer"<COMMA>"FlashPlayerVersion"<COMMA>0x00000000<COMMA>"%FLASHPPVERSION%~installVector<EQUALS>1"|1

Start with replacing <COMMA>with "," and <EQUALS> with "=". The is only <NEXT> for next line, no other keyword or command, according to the manual.

And you don't need the "i386\" at the start of the line either. ;-)
