[Addon] Internet Explorer 8 for XP/2k3 1.4.11

Post by yumeyao » Wed Oct 21, 2009 5:43 am

Internet Explorer 8
For Windows XP/2k3, Last Updated 2011/11/9
If you use nlite to integrate this addon on Windows 2003, read nlite integration guide on 2003 for this addon. RVMI users don't need extra steps.

Description:
  • This addon will replace your Internet Explorer 6 in your windows installation CD with Internet Explorer 8 w/ latest updates(QFE branch is used in this release).

    Features:
    1. Compatibility with XP/2k3 in one Addon(RVMI only). Only compatible with XP for nlite.
      nLite users who want to integrate this addon on Windows 2003 should read the integration guide.
    2. A syssetup.dll-patch-free method to avoid errors in setuperr.log while do not increase your install CD size.(NoSetupErr style only)
      This method is even better compared to MrNxDmx(NR)'s:
      • File replacements are finished at T-13(NR's are not until OOBE), so any svcpack.inf execution that relies on IE(for example: WPI) works.
      • Don't use the unique registry for delayed boot-stage file replacing so this key can be used by other addons/nlite.
      • Don't require extra disk spaces
    3. Fixed some errors created by Micro$oft(wbem path and some reg entries), Cleaned some trashes left by Micro$oft(infobar sounds)
    4. Extremely easy for translators to build a localized version. The guide is here.
    5. Addon structure: File Copy and Registry handling are system-like.
    6. Save more several Kilo-bytes when used along with my WMP Addon. :twisted:
Contents: Credits:
  • MrNxDmx, for his thought of making the addon free from setuperr.log complainning.
  • nonno fabio and OnePiece Alb, again, for their invention to copy files like system components act.
Notes:
  • On XP with SP2 / 2k3 with SP1 or an earlier service pack level, proper update(s) that update sqmapi.dll, shdocvw.dll, shlwapi.dll, browseui.dll are required
  • nlite users who want to integrate this addon on Windows 2003 please read the nlite integration guide.
  • 2 Versions are released. They can be integrated upon each other seamlessly.
    One is the "clean" style, almost no difference compared to onepiece's; another is the "NoSetupErr" style, i.e. no setuperr.log entries, it uses 3-pass file copying so it may be a litter slow than the "clean" style. (In fact the first pass is unnecessary but it's difficult to realize it by an entries*.ini)

nlite integration guide on Windows 2003
due to some issues of nlite, this addon cannot satisfy both nlite integrations on XP/2003. So I made it compatible with XP since more people use it. In order to integrate it on 2003 with nLite, you should follow this guide to modify this addon.

nlite integration on Windows 2003: Convert this addon into a 2k3-only addon.
  1. Extract all the files in this addon to an empty directory, for example, D:\IE8Addon.
  2. In D:\IE8Addon, delete directories "pro" and "home".
  3. In D:\IE8Addon, sort files by FileType, you'll see some *.ca_ files, move them to D:\IE8Addon\svcpack overwriting the existing ones.
  4. In D:\IE8Addon, select all items, then right click to compress them.(ZIP RAR 7z all are ok)
translation guide
It seems many steps here, but they are easy enough that everyone can do them. Once you make a start, it will be extremely easy for you to keep it updated because there is nothing to be changed in an updated version.
1. Download this helper and Internet Explorer 8 installer for 2003(because xmlite.dll is only signed on 2003 when it comes from 2003 branch), and of course, my latest IE8 addon.
2. extract the helper, and copy IE8 installer to the same directory as extracted, execute FileReplacing.cmd
3. extract my IE8 addon. steps 4~6 are editing files extracted from my addon.
4. edit ieaccess.inf, home\ieaccess.inf, and pro\ieaccess.inf, replace the last line with that found in your xp (or 2k3, they are same) disc. (Optional)
5. edit ie.inf, home\ie.inf and pro\ie.inf, modifies lines in [strings] section under the line ";Localizable"
  • MUST CHANGE: MuiCultureDirectory and MuiCultureLangIdHex to that in ie8.inf generated by step 2.
  • optional: replace other strings, most of them can be found in original ie.inf in your xp disc(for home\ie.inf or pro\ie.inf) and 2k3 disc (ie.inf).
    • ASETUP_IEUPDATE_DESC, you can leave if as it is if you don't know how to get it in your language(difficult to describe it here).
    • HISTORY_DIR -> Windows\History
      CACHE_DIR -> Windows\Temporary Internet Files
      DownloadedProgramFiles -> Windows\Downloaded Program Files
      Wallpaper -> Windows\web\Wallpaper
      the yellow part can be found in your windows directories with localized name(if they are localized).
    • (root\ie.inf only.) IEHardenAdmin_DESC and IEHardenUser_DESC: they can be found in 2k3 disc's ieharden.inf.
6. editing entries_IE8.ini. change the section [general] to whatever you like.
7. Copy all items in directory "lngfiles" generated in step 2 to overwrite those in my addon.
8. almost done. only leaving for you to recompress all stuffs to a new addon.

NoSetuperr Vulnerability

Post by adric » Thu Oct 22, 2009 9:41 am

@yumeyao

Could you please explain why IE8 functionality could be damaged using the nosetuperr style addon?

Thanks, Al

Re: NoSetuperr Vulnerability

Post by yumeyao » Thu Oct 22, 2009 11:09 am

EDIT FOR A SUMMARY:
The vulnerabilities are no worth mentioning for most people. But only for some advanced users, so I must give it a mention.

The nosetuperr style addon is always safe if there are not some extreme circumstances. (the extreme circumstances are descripted in the text)
And there is only one circumstance of these extreme cirumstances that an install w/o this addon succeeds and an install with this addon fails.
there is also one circumstance that an install w/o this addon succeeds and an install with this addon MAY fail(I don't have done a test just my theoretical analysing)
for other circumstances, well, they always fail your windows install no matter what is integrated. (for example, ejecting your install disc :lol:)

Thanks, Al
setuperr.log related files (short as files below) are copied(replaced) 3 times.

1. during text-mode setup, same as original actions.

2. by syssetup.inf -> ie.inf. just same stage as iexplore.exe is copied to %programfiles%\Internet Explorer. files are replaced with stubs that can be registered so setuperr.log won't complain about them. original files are copied again in temp names(xxxxxx8.xxx).

2.5 not copying files, just a timeline: registering components... (from T-15 to T-13)

3. at T-13 RunOnce, "cmd.exe move /y" is used to replace the stubs with original files.

3.5 not copying files, just a timeline: T-13 svcpack.inf



so given the steps above. There are totally 4 types of errors:
  1. file copying fail at step 1.
    all same as original cd does so don't blame on this method for this error. :lol:
  2. file copying fail at step 2 due to file-in-use. files are not replaced with stubs.
    resulting setuperr.log errors.
    don't know whether it harms IE functionality(I suspect whether the stubs are saved in other names and they are replaced at next reboot, I never did a test).
  3. file copying fail at step 2. temp files are not created successfully.
    resulting file moving fail in step 3. harm IE functionality.
    this behavior is as safe as original cd so don't blame on this method for this error.
  4. file moving fail at step 3 due to file-in-use. files are not restored.
    harm IE functionality.
from the list, you'll see as far as you don't use those files, it totally safe as an original cd.


and from what I know.... there are some methods if you decide to destroy the whole thing :twisted:
  • hit shift+f10 and type commands to make these files in-use during setup.
  • add processes executed at T-15 ~ T-13 stage that uses these files by inf->RegisterDlls
  • add processes that uses these files executed at T-13 RunOnce stage and before the execution of moving files
  • if DPS is integrated by void setup.exe, then add a cmd line executed by DPS to take use of these files


so yes, obviously, if you want to break something intentionally, there is always a way(ejecting the cd is a good way in any condition. huh :wink:).

and obviously, if you don't want to break it, there is hardly any chance that you break it by mistake.

hope it makes sense.

regards.

@yumeyao

Thank you for the explanation. Can I assume that if the setuperr.log is clean after running the nosetuperr style addon, that I have not damaged the IE functionality in some way? :)

Anyway, I have decided to go with your WMP11 and IE8 addons, because they seem to behave the best for me during installation. I'm not fond of having 2 addons to fix an original addon so I switched to yours.

As with your WMP11 addon, I noticed that your CAT file for KB971961 is different than the one from the original fix. I could not find the CAT file KB971961-IE8.CAT for the jscript 5.8 fix. All that I find on my system after the install is KB971961.CAT which came from the QFE Update Pack and matches the original jscript 5.7 fix. Your KB971961.CAT doesn't match any of the original CAT files that I have access to. Aren't all these CAT files created by Msoft and shouldn't they match?

Nice work keep it up and thanks.

Al

yes. you havn't damaged the IE functionality in any way.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/deta ... 7afdc1dc0f
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/deta ... dcdcae6e62

only that I renamed KB971961-IE8.cat to KB971961.cat.
1. it overwrites KB971961.cat for JS 5.7, saving space.
2. it's 8.3 compatible in case some people use an out-dated DOS-booted (winnt.exe) install.

@yumeyao

Can you please tell me where you got the cat files you have in the home and pro dirs in your IE8 addon?

I forgot to look in those dirs and this is the cat file that gets on my system. It does not match the cat file
that is in the original SP3 fix taken from the link you provided.

Maybe your CAT is not from the enu branch as was with WMP11

md5sum Z:\tmp\update\KB971961-IE8.CAT
90f1888df053dea4bd1ca06bc054a53d *KB971961-IE8.CAT

Thanks ...

Okay, I just checked the CAT from the Chinese (simplified) version of this fix and that is what you are using in the PRO and Home dirs of your addon. Apparently, it does not make a difference, but would it be possible to use the enu branch files for your addons?


Update:

It not only looks like you are using the CAT file, but the jscript.dll from the simlified chinese fixpack as well. This doesn't seem right to me. Please correct me if I am wrong..

Thanks and sorry for being such a pain ....

@yumeyao

Are you planning on replacing the simple Chinese fixpack files (KB 971961.cat and jscript.dll) that are in this addon with the enu ones. ?

BTW, nice work you are doing!

@yumeyao

Am I being ignored for some reason that I am unaware of?

I know you are very busy with a lot of your projects, but a simple yes or no would help me decide if I need to replace any files myself. My apologies if I'm being to harsh or to impatient..

Thanks,

I'm not busy with my projects here these days, just feeling it really hard to get over real life. Nuh, really suffering days in another world.

so to reply to you, in brief, I'll change any files you pointed that come from Chinese updates to English ones(both IE and WMP, I suppose), but probably not I'll rename the catalogs to their original names. If you really like them to show up like that, you can simply do it yourself.

I'll try to as soon as possible release a newer version of this addon with the 2 updates released in the end of October.

adric makes a good point regarding the changing of catalog file names. I have one more. When using this addon with user_hidden's update pack, kb974455.cat for IE8 overwrites the IE6 version, causing an error in SetupErr.log for ShDocVw.dll.

no, you mistook that, 5eraph.

in this addon, I've renamed kb974455-ie8.cat to ie974455.cat, so it never overwrites the ie6 version kb974455.cat.

The reasons why I keep this file naming strategy are:
1. 8.3 filenames are dos compatible
2. KB971961.cat overwrites the ie6(WScript 5.7) version.
3. catalogs are not affected by their names at all. I could never image the situation that an user integrates a proper update pack/addon, then installs updates already included in the pack manually after windows setup(then causing duplicated catalogs, even though, it doesn't harm at all).
4. for the -v2 -v3, etc., qfecheck and WinUpdatesList and regedit.exe -> HKLM\software\microsoft\updates are more efficient ways than checking catalogs. For this, I have everything in registry connected with -v2 -v3 as they are delivered by Microsoft.(seems not related to this addon, I just point this out for the update pack.)

LOL ... me too. I guess dumpy Dooby is trying to tell me something that has not gotten thru to me. What did I do wrong?

The rapidshare link said there were no more free slots available and that I should get a premium account. I've never seen that before. Similar thing with yumeyao's link. You can download the other clean version, but the one I want wants you to logon. :?:

Update:

I decided to keep trying the rapidshare link and kept getting the same message about no free slots. In the end I got in and was able to get the file. So Dumpy Dooby was right. I was doing it wrong :D

I have never seen this before and I use rapidshare often.

Hey yumeyao I notice you copy your MOF files to the %WinDir%\system32\wbem as opposed to where the installer copies them to %WinDir%\WBEM

Is this an error of Microsoft?

Edit: Yes I think it is a error, in Windows 7 those files are in %WinDir%\system32\wbem

I suppose so.

First, it's strange why not system32\wbem. %Windir%\wbem is not an existing one but system32\wbem is.

Then,

Code: Select all

     CopyAlways.SysWow64.WBEM.Files                              = 10,    "SysWOW64\WBEM"    
    CopyAlways.VistaHelp.Files                                  = 18                        
    CopyAlways.WBEM.Files                                       = 10,    "WBEM"
According to the syswow64\wbem, it most likely to be system32\wbem(11,"WBEM") for the WBEM files.

Last, Win7 has these files in system32\wbem, not %windir%\wbem.

I had noticed this as well for XP x64. What do these particular files do? And, if we relocate them to %11%\wbem, how can we tell if they're working correctly?

I installed them after my desktop loaded (with mofcomp.exe) & took a snapshot before and after install and they added/changed nothing

Edit: The reason I did not think it was strange is not all mof files go in the wbem dir, there are some in system32 as well

I'm not sure how mof works but I know it works when it's placed in %11%\wbem.

Heya!

I have tried installing this addon with nLite, but no sucess.
During the text-mode-setup when the setup copies the necessary files, I get can't copy ieencode.dll and other IE files.
I went step by step according to the guide (with both the clean and nosetuperr versions) but with no success - every time same output.
What am I doing wrong?
I am creating an XP SP3 unattended installation CD.
I add the addon during the hot fixes screen in nLite.

Thanks.

well, ieencode.dll is removed by purpose and nLite will remove this entry from txtsetup.sif, it's odd that your install asks for it.

can you describe what else things you did using nLite? and how did you create the final ISO?

It's not only ieencode.dll - there are more files the text setup asks for (I will get to the PC I was working on in a couple of days).
As for what my unattended CD has:
1) SP3
2) All hot fixes using Windows Updates Downloader.
3) used nLite tweaks...
I will upload the Session.ini file nLite creates so you'll get the full list of changes I made.

Update:

So I got passed the text-setup errors by first creating the normal nLit'ed XP, and then adding by itself the IE8 addon.
Now I have a new problem - When windows starts for the first time I get these errors:
1) Advanced INF Install:
Error creating process <C:]program files\windows media player\WMPEnc.exe /RegServer>. Reason: The system cannot find the file specified.

2) rundll32.dll:
This application has failed to start because framedyn.dll was not found. Re-Installing the application may fix this problem.

3) Rundll:
Error loading srclient.dll
The specified module could not be found.

And IE doesn't exist - when trying to start IE it opens the IE properties screen.

I am sure that the addon is causing these problems because when I run the nLit'ed version without the addon, I get a normal install with no errors.
Any advice?

Thanks....

Running nLite more than once on the same source is not recommended. You may have better luck using RVMi to integrate IE8 first, then use nLite for everything else after.

But isn't IE8 newer than SP3?
Wouldn't that mean that when slip streaming SP3, I would get mixed files in IE (V 7 & V 8)?

Slipstream only SP3 into your clean source first using whatever method you wish: RVMi, nLite or command line. Then put that source aside as your new clean source. Use this new source as the starting point for future integrations. ;)

Heya,

Tried it your way, but with no luck.
Created a SP3 slip streamed version of XP and then added all the hot fixes with the IE8 addon, and now I get the text-setup errors again and when the GUI setup appears, I get the LSASS.exe error and it reboots.

Your "Last Session.ini" file may contain clues about what's causing the problem. Can you upload it so we can have a look?

It's funny how the simplest answer is usually the right answer :rolleyes:
The addon was working perfectly, I was the one messing the setup. :shock:
I was doing an operation outside of nLite - Bypassing the OOBE without removing the account setup. This operation includes editing a couple of files in the i386 folder.
I had earlier created an edit for these files (With the SP3 slip streamed and all hotfixes) and kept using these files.
What I missed was that these files were also edited when IE8 is installed, and so I had a messed up setup source.

I created XP+SP3+IE8+Hotfixes (by that order), and then got a new problem - windows could not load installer battery.
I did a little research and found that for some unknown reason the file batt.dll doesn't get copied to the new computer. I bypassed that problem with copying the expanded file in a batch file called from CMDLINES.TXT.

Then I tried to re-apply the manual edit of the files to bypass the OOBE, but kept getting a BSOD after the GUI setup. So I guess I will have to live without it :P

And now it's working like a charm. :lol:

Thanks for your help....

Re: [Addon] Internet Explorer 8 for XP/2k3 1.3.2

Post by Botus » Wed Jan 06, 2010 12:06 pm

Can anyone help, the menu speed in my IE8 is way too fast?

I know about this

Registry Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
Modify/Create the Value Data Type(s) and Value Name(s) as detailed below.
Data Type: String Value // Value Name: MenuShowDelay
Setting for Value Data: Default = 400

but it does not seem to alter IE8 menus

Also is there a way to make it load "reopen last browsing session" without wasting my life going to the toolbar? This feature of IE7 Pro is not working now I'm using IE8

don't know why menu speed in your IE8 is fast, this addon doesn't touch this part. anyway the speed on my computer is ok, about 400ms's delay.

for "reopen last browsing session", the way I do is setting homepage to "about:tabs", then there will be a link to do that. but in case you are using IE7 Pro, probably your homepage is set IE7 Pro's hp, then I don't know. Because I don't think IE7 Pro is fully compatible with IE8 so I havn't tried it yet since IE8 Final's release.(tried when it's IE8 RC)

For all intents and purposes, IE7Pro is compatible with IE8. I use it all the time.

I maintain an IE7Pro addon. I know I don't change the home page with it, so you might consider using that instead. I don't think I made it uninstallable, though.

thanks for the replies


dumpydooby, in IE7 pro in base settings, does the "resume pages left open on last exit automatically" work for you ? I'm so used to 6 pages always opening whenever I start IE this novel idea of doing it manually is stupid.

I noticed msfeedsbs.dll which is in the original ms fix is not included in your addon. Is there a reason for that?

msfeedbs.dll is there but not msfeedsbs.dll
