Repack Internet Explorer 8 for XP

Post by acus » Sat Jun 23, 2012 12:29 pm

I'm trying to repack the installer for Internet Explorer 8 for XP, adding the new files from hotfixes and related reg entries.

Does someone know how to hexedit iesetup.exe in order to disable the check for cryptographic service? Otherwise the installation doesn't start.

Thanks

Have you tried to install it using "update.exe" directly?

Just remove these lines from [Configuration]:

Code: Select all

CustomizationDLL          = iecustom.dll
UninstallCustomizationDLL = update\iecustom.dll

Another thing you should do is find a way to install all the CAT files

Off Topic: @tomasz86 what is the latest version of CabArc.exe that you have, could you share it?

Hi Tomasz,

thanks for info.

It works!!

Hi Rick,

I use update.exe patched as in
http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/44639-s ... ge__st__20

so I commented all references for .cat files.

I made this only just for fun.

Regards

What's the problem with .CAT files?? You install multiple catalogs from [ProductCatalogsToInstall].

@ricktendo64
I use cabarc.exe 5.1.2600.1106. I think it's the standard XP version.

Hi Tomasz,

you're right. No problem with .cat files.

I repacked IE8 ITA and it installs fine in Virtualbox.

tomasz86, there seems to be a newer version of cabarc in Win2003SP1 support tools, at least the version number is higher.

ricktendo64, what version of cabarc are you currently using?

acus, sorry I know this is OT.

Are there any benefits from using the newer version of cabarc?

I'm very careful about M$ packaging tools. Makecab from XP (and newer) is buggy.

@acus
Have you added all updates to the IE8 installer? Are you focusing only on the ITA version?

I would be interested in adding it to my website :)

@Tomasz,

sorry, for XP I use nlite, RVM Integrator and addons.

Maybe I could try HF, but spare time is never enough...

this way and that used by Nonno Fabio SvcPack\RunOncEx AddOn 5 years from now?, you just use the http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7622 and create your addon in any language that supports IE 7-8

Hi Onepiece,

I know your tool for creating IE8 addons for nlite and other addon (I use it for creating XP bootscreen addon) and I think it's an excellent tool.

My file is not an addon, it is only a little excercise for fun, repacking the installer to install IE8 in an already running XP.

Hi acus

precisely the Nonno Fabio SvcPack\RunOncEx AddOn and just a silent isntaller, may also be run from the desktop ect ect, this idea was since it's already automated (and in five years never made out problems ect ect) and need two clicks to do (indeed can be customized to the maximum, using custom command silent, adding tweaks registry or also by performing other operations in RunOnceEx) so because doing the same thing manually (in a manner of speaking and how to do the same as addons all processes that do nlite or other applications ect ect)

many years before since the first release of IE7 as everyone knows steep protected by WGA, so it was not known at what time if RyanVM would give the ok for the publication of IE True AddOn in RyanVM Forum, for this reason and the idea to make a IE silent with all updates inside in just 11-12 MB, and so created the Nonno Fabio IE AddOn in the time

that has been used recently to say the truth, the only one who liked the trope that way was only Siginet, since in that time the OnePiece IE True AddOn did not support the rollback, and Siginet if I remember correctly they were interested in option to remove it after ect ect (and was Siginet suggest to add option to customize the command silent in that time ect ect)

Ciao.

It's still a little bit different because this installer (made by acus) uses M$ hotfix installer which means that it also supports these switches, can be installed an uninstalled using exactly the same method as M$ official updates.

The result of the whole operation may be exactly the same as using your SVCPACK addon but the method of doing it is just different ^^;

However, I think asus to already understand what they wanted to say

instead you tomasz86, to understand each other more well, is not concerned if the addon and equal to that of Nonno Fabio, because in 5 years all over the web or for what I saw, no one else to published ie_setup made ​​in that way so is not disputed that the way and was at the Nonno Fabio addon OKKKKKKK

Hey OnePiece,

I'm sorry but I'm not sure if I can understand you very well...

But I want to say that the Update Pack/Addon Creator is unusable in Win2k.

This is how it looks like:

Image

The text is messed up but I'm guessing it's because of my system DPI which is set to 105%. The real problem is that nothing happens when you click on the "arrow" to scroll the list under "Choose the programs you want to create".

You can scroll it only by using keyboard arrows but then this happens after scrolling a few positions down:

Image

You get stuck here and cannot do anything. I remember I was able to use it in the past though... Has something changed?

2tomasz86 and acus,

I am trying to follow in your footsteps with this.

tomasz86 can you do me a favor and upload your updatever.cmd to mediafire? I get a 404 error when I try to DL from the dropbox link at MSFN.

@shiner

Here you can find the new version of updatever.cmd. It's much slimmer and faster than the last one, and works both for updates and service packs.

http://sdrv.ms/LKvVyC

I'm actually going to add it to my website in the near future.

But still no go here.

I keep getting:

"Extraction failed
File is corrupt"

message when I try to run the completed repack installer.

acus or tomasz86 can you provide any additional hints?

Post by tomasz86 » Mon Jul 02, 2012 2:16 pm

I don't know which steps you did but this is a simple guide how to prepare an SFXCAB package:

1. Patch update.exe:

Code: Select all

ECHO>sfxcab.xsc REPLACE 0B 01 04 89 1D BY 0B 01 10 89 1D
START/WAIT xvi32.exe update.exe /S=sfxcab.xsc
DEL/Q sfxcab.xsc
You will need XVI32.exe in %systemroot%\system32. This method works for all update.exe with versions 6.x.x.x.


2. Prepare a CAB using cabarc:

Code: Select all

cabarc.exe -m LZX:21 -r -p N sfxcab.cab *
It has to be run inside the directory so if you open the CAB you will see the update folder (and other folders too depending on the update) and the rest of files.


3. Patch the CAB:

Code: Select all

ECHO>sfxcab.xsc REPLACE 20 00 75 70 64 61 74 65 5C 75 70 64 61 74 65 2E 65 78 65 BY 60 00 75 70 64 61 74 65 5C 75 70 64 61 74 65 2E 65 78 65
xvi32.exe sfxcab.cab /S=sfxcab.xsc
DEL/Q sfxcab.xsc

4. Merge MSCF.sfx with the CAB:

Code: Select all

COPY/B MSCF.sfx+sfxcab.cab sfxcab.exe

Edit: Ignore the above guide and look at this "real life" example:

Code: Select all

ECHO>sfxcab.xsc REPLACE 0B 01 04 89 1D BY 0B 01 10 89 1D
START/WAIT xvi32.exe WindowsXP-KB2685939-x86-ENU\update\update.exe /S=sfxcab.xsc 
cabarc.exe -m LZX:21 -r -p -P WindowsXP-KB2685939-x86-ENU\ N WindowsXP-KB2685939-x86-ENU.cab WindowsXP-KB2685939-x86-ENU\*
ECHO>sfxcab.xsc REPLACE 20 00 75 70 64 61 74 65 5C 75 70 64 61 74 65 2E 65 78 65 BY 60 00 75 70 64 61 74 65 5C 75 70 64 61 74 65 2E 65 78 65 
xvi32.exe WindowsXP-KB2685939-x86-ENU.cab /S=sfxcab.xsc
COPY/B MSCF.sfx+WindowsXP-KB2685939-x86-ENU.cab WindowsXP-KB2685939-x86-ENU.exe
DEL/Q WindowsXP-KB2685939-x86-ENU.cab sfxcab.xsc
Just run this as a CMD script. MSCF.sfx must be present in the same directory as the script and XVI32.exe should be placed either there too or in %systemroot%\system32. Of course you must replace "WindowsXP-KB2685939-x86-ENU" with your own folder name.

Thanks tomasz86, very interesting.
Here's what I have tried over the past few days:

1. Patching update.exe - a) the method you just described using xvi32 command-line, b) an update.exe from one of WildBill's releases, c) update.exe patched using BlackWingCat's UpdFix.exe (no success with any of them)

2. CAB using cabarc: my command line is exactly like yours (if I open the resulting cab with 7z, I see all files and the update folder exactly as you describe)

3. Patch the CAB: I use the exact same method you described.

4. Merge MSCF.sfx with the CAB: I use the exact same command-line you showed above.

I created MSCF.sfx using the method described at MSFN. It has a size of 38 KB--does that sound right?

Also, regarding acus's 11 steps above, 1 - 9 seem straightforward I don't think I errored there -- it's got to be step 10 or 11.

I think the MSCF.sfx can be a problem. What version number has it got? Can you run the update.exe when everything is not packed yet?

Try this ENU MSCF.sfx v6.3.15.0

I notice if you take a multilang sfx and reshack it you will break it, also the filesize of the final exe matters (they are quite finicky)

@ricktendo64
This v6.3.15.0 thing is something I'm curious about... it's used in IE8 installer but M$ keeps using v6.3.13.0 for all other packages, including the most recent ones. I wonder if there's something wrong in their SFXCAB.exe 6.3.15.0 (M$ uses their internal tool, i.e. sfxcab.exe to create SFXCAB packages automatically).

Of course it doesn't matter which version the MSCF.sfx has got as long as it works :) It can even be 5.x.x.x. It's the update.exe which is responsible for everything. The version of update.exe and MSCF.sfx do NOT need to be equal.

Thanks Rick, I'll try that one--it's smaller than the one I made by 4 bytes.

tomasz86,
I noticed that updatever.cmd I downloaded yesterday creates update.ver with mui files before their corresponding dll--which doesn't correspond to the stock versions of update.ver. The order may not matter as far as verification, but it makes text comparison with other update.ver a bit more tedious. It would be nice if the script could output update.ver in the same order as the stock version. Just a recommendation. Thanks because it makes generating that file much quicker. I was doing by "hand" before I downloaded it.

The order of files in update.ver does not matter ;)

The original update.ver is totally ignored by the script and I want to keep it like that because the original one sometimes has some incorrect info, bugs, etc.

The version of MSCF.sfx posted by Rick did the trick on first go.
Installed IE8, rebooted VM and checked everything--all OK.

Thanks, acus, tomasz86, and Ricktendo64.

Looks like mssstool32.exe uses v6.3.18.0.

Does anybody know any regular hotfixes/updates that use this version or higher?

2 acus and tomasz86,

I am still reviewing and testing the enu version I made following the directions in this thread.

I have found that a large number of registry entries are not added when compared to running iesetup.exe rather than update.exe.

Have you tested your builds using these modified installers extensively online?

"LangTypeValue" to "0" is in the original file, I didint change it

@shiner

I made some test not properly "extensively online". Did you have some problem in browsing the web?

Maybe the customisation file adds some other registry entreis. I'll try to check it. HFSLIP is able to slipstreaw IE8 so I'll check whether it adds other registry lines when doing it (except the ones from update.inf).

I found about 1300 more entries added when doing a compare of stock versus repack (no updates added at all).
Another 200 entries I added were from doing compares of the 5 stock hotfix installations.

So my current test repack adds about 1500 more reg entries than my first repack following acus directions. It install fine except one icon doesn't show (Startmenu/pinned.)

One more thing I noticed, there are two sections in update.inf:
[ProcessesToRun]
[ProcessesToRunAfterReboot]

and I can't find what calls these sections as they are not called from within update.inf as far as I can see.

OK, thanks--that is understandable.

I solved the icon problem, so now everything seems to be running fine.
I will continue to test this build and inform if I find anything not working properly.

I briefly checked how HFSLIP slipstreams IE8 installer but I couldn't see anything special there. What utility do you use to compare the registry after installation? I think many registry entries out of those may be unnecessary.

I use RegShot.
You may be right about many of those additional entries being unnecessary--I don't have a clue about that.

I installed IE8-WindowsXP-x86-ENU.exe taking the snapshot before reboot--to see just the entries added by the installer.
I then repacked it commenting out the customdll entries only (no other changes.) I installed that, did a similar regshot, and then compared the two.
I used a similar method for each of the other 5 hotfixes.

On the first compare above, most of the entries are under:
HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Classes\Interface\

I added most all of them, making some small changes to one or two keys, just to see if it would break the install--but it didn't, everything installs fine now and seems to work properly.

Use InstallWatch Pro 2.5c. This tool can monitor all files/ini/registry changes made by one install. Unfortunatelly you will need to trim down
by hand unrelevant registry keys like HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\MUICache for example.

OK,

I just finished checking and most if not all the reg entries I have added are also added in yumeyao's ie8 addon (now updated by ricktendo64) Ricks-YumeYao_IE8_Addon_Nosetuperr_ENU_1_4_13.7z.

I haven't check onepiece's ie8 addon yet.

BTW, it appears that onepiece is active again. Next week should see some more releases.

Hi shiner, need only use the http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7622 and you'll always have the IE 7-8 True or Svcpack or RunOnceEx AddOn

Ciao.

Hi OnePiece,

I have used DXUPAC successfully in the past. Recently, I made a IE8 true addon with version 1.1.5.3 of DXUPAC using the latest IE8 updates. The addon integrated (no problems) with the IE8 cosmetics addon and installed fine. But when I ran qfecheck there were errors relating to the IE8 updates with associated problem files also showing up in setuperror.log. I created the true addon twice and it gave the same errors. I don't have the list on hand now. I didn't report it at the time because you seemed to be busy with other concerns for a while.

I will now go back and try again to make and test the true addon by DXUPAC and report back in a day or two.
