Most of my Unatennded setup is build using
Kelsenellenelvian Packs (anyone else notice the same??) And his wpi tool has me hooked as well!!! All he really needs to make is a whole operating system (win compatable) and I would be using that too!!

Thanks for the great works and glad he's feeling better cause I'd be lost without checking these forums (many times daily) for a new pack or switchless to play with (and after trial and errors) he get the best pack for the job. . . Also I have found his name popping up in almost every forum I visit too (gets about).

Whoops I was just ment to post 'Thanks Kel' (But I guess he deserves some praise)!!

Have a nice night (dark here)!!

Hey Kel! Are you going to update your addon with the v1.5.716.0 of LegitCheckContro.dll?

Kell thank you for your briliant addons, I have only one request. Please update this Wga dll before Ryan releases the next verison of the update pack.

With all due respect, I think this addon is 'superseded' by http://www.ryanvm.net/msfn/updatepack.html -> RyanVM WGA Addon 1.5.716.0.

Its likely. But they have some differences. Ryan's addon has KB892130 related entries to show it as installed. (No cat files) Kelsenellenelvian's addon doesnt have any reg entries, just dll file. Thats all. :wink:

thanks Kel!

I was just wandering then, since both this addon and Ryans WGA Addon contain just the LegitCheckControl.dll, what is the benefit of using this addon instead of Ryan's? What difference does it make that Ryan's adds some registry entries to tell windows KB892130 has been installed, isn't this the hotfix number that does the validation through windows update, its got nothing to do with the one that installs WGATray etc onto your computer?

Your answer is in the first post.

Is it? Ryan's addon doesn't include WGA Notifications either... those couple of reg entries are for "neatness sake".

Really? I understood that Ryans addon included all the WGA 'extras', not just the dll. Granted, I couldn't find an accurate description of Ryans addon. After going through the contents of ryans .7z file, you are correct. I just never noticed it before. Ryans addon only includes the legit check control dll, an ini answer file and the inf file.

I stand corrected, I apologize for my previous curt post. :oops:

no worries mr_smartepants :) (that sounds like I'm being sarcastic... lol)

Are Kel or Ryan there to answer? To me it sounds like this addon and ryans do the same thing now, I was just unsure what the relevance of the slight differences were. I figured since Microsoft dropped the KB905474 update from Windows Update, this is why Ryan just made his addon LegitCheckControl.dll only, so to keep in sync with the Microsoft offered download for WGA.

anyone?

pupil - you're exactly correct for why I dropped notifications. And yes, I'd say at this point that mine and Kel's addons do the exact same thing.

Direct Link to the CAB from MS. I'll try to update the WGA Addon on my page shortly.

EDIT: Mine's done :)

Kel,
What's the difference between your pack and Ryan's?

His is the full wgatool addon it includes the defualt ms startup utility that runs on startup and consistently warns you if you are not legit.

Mine is just the bare dll that allows downloading of ms files (Provided you are legit)

Hehehehe

Thx, m8.
Surprised to see your reply. Didn't think you were up.

I often check MS Update as soon as I install to make sure I have zero updates left. MS's update website always wants to install WGA crap first before telling me what other updates I need. I want to skip that. For this purpose, would yours be better, or Ryan's?

(Yes, it's legit.) :D

PS: How come u don't have an Update Pack? Ryan has one. Xable and boooggy, too.

Kel, I haven't distributed WGATool since it was taken off MU months ago...(hence the KB892130 it says right behind it on my page ;))

so... are Kel's and Ryan's doing basically the same thing?

I looked at both, and it seems to be the case... it's just that Ryan's add KB892130 Registry entries in addition

Sorry, Viva.

It's kinda hard to understand when:
a) It's new. For example, does anyone really understand IE7 or WMP11 fully yet? (For the answer, try to find boooggy's WMP11 Addon. Really.)
b) Different members post contradicting information.

I know it may seem at times that some of us are completely clueless, but we're just curious, and want to LEARN. Then, maybe WE can help less-informed people on the forums as well.

@RaGhul, I was talking to OuTman, and the topic of discussion was WGA, not IE7/WMP11 I believe... ;)

it's just that I don't understand why maintaining two addons designed for the same thing :o

for what are these KB892130 reg entries put?
are both addons making the update "already installed" for Windows Update?


... the truth is out there :mrgreen:

ViVa

Post by ViVa » Mon Dec 18, 2006 6:26 pm

Practically there is no point in doing so indeed, but the thing here is that Kel came up with it first, Ryan decided later to split WGA up from his Update Pack, because many ppl were requesting so.

The reg entries are for "neatness sake".

Both addons do practically the same thing, so yes both make the update "already installed" for WU/MU.
