[Release] RyanVM's WGA 1.5.540.0 addon without KB905474

Post by ophiel » Sun Jul 16, 2006 2:49 am

I know there are other WGA addons that do exactly the same thing, but I like Ryan's method so I modified his RVMAddonsWGA_1.5.540.0.7z and removed WGA Notifications (KB905474) from it.

damage done:
ini and inf modified, wgalogon & wgatray removed.

always use the newest RVM Integrator.

Ryan gets all the credit for this barebones integration, it works great.

(this was of course already test installed to confirm that it's working)

RVMAddonsWGA.7z

I hope (for your sake) that you got Ryan's permission first before posting this.

Meh, suit yourself. That being said, I think people would be better served with a pure KB892130 addon rather than a hacked up KB905474 addon.

it is only 892130.

as far as being "hacked up" it's not exactly a complex addon to modify, it consists of 4 files and took me 5 minutes. did you even look at it?

here's how your "hacked" addon compares to a "pure" addon:

"hacked" inf: 567 bytes
kels inf: 2598 bytes

i think people are better served with less bloat.

peace.

this is Ryan's WGA addon -without- WGAN.
it won't bring the the messenge ast win startup.

in other words: This is KB892130, that's it.
in plainer words: This is legitcheckcontrol.dll, that's it.

No, it's an 'optional' download according to the EULA.
coolyandy2 wrote:And will WGAN appear in Microsoft Update
Yes, again, and again, and again :lol:
It's still an optional download though and you can remove it from the MU list by checking the check box to "never remind me for this update (or something like it)"
Why M$ named this 'Critical' I'll never understand. :rolleyes:

When i first start up it automaticly log on as Administrator without me Adding my own account

its either to do with

Rhyan update pack

or your WGA addon pack

How can i change it so it will not skip it or can i use nlite to make an account for me or something else?

sounds like you're not working with a clean source.

neither Ryan's update pack nor this addon pack do that.

to see if autologon is enabled, open up winnt.sif which is located in the i386 folder of your source. scroll down to the [GuiUnattended] section
and see if there's an entry which says:
AutoLogon = "Yes"

obviously if that's there then autologon is set.

since you're not getting your account creation screen, it sounds like your windows cd is missing OOBE. start over with a clean retail cd.

Account creation doesn't necessarily tie into OOBE and can be completely circumvented by options in the WINNT.SIF and if those conditions are there, then the only OOBE you'll see are the "Intro" video that plays during XP's first boot and it's attempt to connect to windows update.

I dunno if i'm in the right place to ask this but: can i integrate this updated version of WGA into my Windows copy with nLite?

If not, could anyone suggest me an addon for the updated WGA 1.5.540?

Sorry but i'm a bit new to these things... :|

EDIT: meh! i just found this! Could anyone please explain the difference?

not sure if it will work with nlite.

but you can integrate it with the RVM integrator and then nlite your CD, that's how i do it.

the only difference between this addon and the other one is this one doesn't add a bunch of registry entries.

Shameless selfpromotion. ;)

Heres another addon which also installs regs for KB892130:

[Release] WGA-Only KB892130 Addon 1.5.540.0 by Aserone

My addon and Kels takes this removal a step further and applies the necessary regs for LegitCheckControl.dll

Sorry hijacking but I hope it helps explain!

what exactly are you explaining?

the regs you add must not be necessary since this (Ryan's) method works perfectly without them.

p.s. please kindly remove the link to your addon from my thread, do you see me or Kels advertising in yours?

Advertisement? What about respect, especially to a member with lots of addons? And this toic is about WGA, and his addon is also about wga, but differs from yours. Your addon is a hacked version of Ryan's, does Ryan tells you to close topic?
And also about these:

I didn't write anything agains you, but its not fair anymore...
Your addon does not include KB892130. It just contains LegitCheckControl.dll, just the dll, no registry entries. But aserones' do include. He has got a " :wink: " in his post, a friendly post, i dont see a hostile text there. Yours is different, his is different. Please be more respectful, especially to forum members spending their times to create very helpful tools.
EDIT:

that addon you hacked is not Ryans anymore. Ryans include reg entries in it, as yours hacked do not... :!:

good sir, i assure you i did not mean any disrespect. on the contrary, i feel it is important to show respect when i demand it, a lesson you could do well to learn.

....and ryan's addon includes ZERO regs for 892130.

the reason i give Ryan credit is because although it would be very easy for me to claim this as a new and separate add-on, and not even mention that i started out with Ryan's addon, the fact remains that he pioneered this "no reg" method, and so i have to give credit where credit is due.
