OK, I'll make that change too.

Ugh, I meant to have this done awhile ago, but I'd been having problems getting a DLL to register properly. I just figured out it was a stupid typo on my part that's been annoying me all afternoon :mad:

Oh well, at least that means I should be done shortly. Just got to do a final round of tests to make sure everything works like it's supposed to.

2.1 is uploading now. Regarding changing the registry value from l3codeca.acm to l3codecp.acm, apparently that entry is created after wmp10.inf executes. As a result, l3codeca.acm ends up overwriting the new entry in the end.

I'll look into seeing if I can make it work with the next update, but it's not going to be in this release. In the mean time, just add it to your unattended reg tweaks :)

Thanks for another great work, Ryan.
(KB910393 checksum problem is corrected on new pack !)

I have not tested yet, but isn't KB895316.CAT necessary?
Audiodev.dll 5.2.3810.3911 is still from KB895316 although other two files are replaced by MCE version 4332.

No, it isn't. audiodev.dll is new to WMP10 and therefore XP SP2 doesn't see it as a file needing protection ;)

Hi,

thanks a lot for the release, the question: the issue quoted below:

is it also critical if I

1) anyway install manually LAME Encoder and all video codecs whenever Windows Media Player is present or not, and 2) never use Windows Media Player for MP3 or AVI play back but another players?

Or it is not critical ?

Shouldn't matter. I personally use Winamp/MPC for my MP3/AVI playback needs.

Thank You for the new release RyanVM and for even sparing the time to try and add the entries I asked about. It's greatly appreciated since you have enough on your plate already by the looks of it.
Myself I use MPC for all my playback of any media , the only reason I even installed WMP10 was cause some1 else I know wanted it in a disc I put together for them. The disc I put together worked pretty well so I used it myself. since the mp3 codec that comes in wmp 10 works fine for encoding/playback (for me anyway) I just couldn't see why I'd need to install another for using mp3 in any aplication when all that is required is a minor reg change.

From what I could see WMP10 was what actually changed the reg settings for mp3. eg:Once windows is already installed I install my own mp3 codec using the added reg entries I mentioned before , then I add WMP10 and it actually changes those entries I've added back (thought it might be done by the unreg of mplayer2) . Wierd cause when I looked through an unpacked unedited WMP and read through the inf files I couldn't see and references to those reg values I change (maybe I didn't look hard enough). Wasn't sure if this was the same when using the addon cab as it would be added before I add my mp3 codec and entries. But I could understand windows setup changinging those entries due to they are entered by either unreg mplayer2 or windows (not sure which one) and not WMP infs from what I could see.

Thanks...

Sowhat is the principal differences between Your pack and Booggy's one? Both are Medial Player 10 + MPS 2.0, but this one is at least more fresh...

What’s common between both packs is that they gather all updates necessary to keep Windows/Microsoft Update happy (0 critical updates)...

Ryan’s differs in that he adds some request-only hotfixes (not publicly available) which fix some bugs noted by many people but M$ didn’t bother to release them on Windows Update...

Booogy’s pack only integrates the publicly available hotfixes...

Edit: sorry, misread the post, thought that he was talking about the Update Pack...

excuse moi.....ryan is using almost the same files as myself. but he updated the original installer with wmfdist95 taken from WindowsXPMediaCenter2005-KB900325.
other difference is that my pack has modded icons for wmp and wmc also some reg tweaks.

and remeber also me and ryan posted already the differences betweem 2 packs so please read the threads......

REQ | KB911564 for inclusion in RVM WMP10 Addon

Post by 5eraph » Fri Feb 17, 2006 1:23 am

Microsoft sat on KB911564 since the end of November and apparently released it nine days after Ryan updated, so it's not included in the WMP10 Addon (yet?).

It's only necessary for those that use web browsers other than Internet Explorer (like myself):
Windows Media Player Plug-in Vulnerability - CVE-2006-0005
A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Windows Media Player plug-in for non-Microsoft Internet browsers because of the way the Windows Media Player plug-in handles a malformed EMBED element. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by constructing a malicious EMBED element that could potentially allow remote code execution if a user visited a malicious Web site. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system.

It's probably a situation like the IE cumulative updates where MU checks for the presence of a proper file version along with certain registry entries to confirm that the hotfix is installed properly. Rest assured, the next WMP10 addon release will make sure MU doesn't complain anymore ;)

I know! I was trying to clearify that I didn't look at the fileversions at first and automatically assumed it was a newer version in that February 14 update.
Why the h*ll does MS release .3990 again when they released .3993 three weeks before??

Oh, that's a different update than the one I'm talking about. KB911565 is the wmp.dll update. KB911564 is the update to the Netscape plugin. That one will be in the next update pack as it's not specific to either WMP version.

So we are on the same page afterall :P

I'm thinking I may add KB911564 to this pack (even though it's in the Update Pack) because there are some users who may want to use the WMP10 addon without using the Update Pack. It wouldn't conflict with the Update Pack since the all of the files/registry entries would be the same.

You thoughts?

Hi Ryan,

I agree with your point of view.

So long as the shared components of the finished installation are no different whether only the Update pack and/or the WMP10 add-on was used in the slipstream process, I can't see there being any problem at all.

A quick question I have is that if the hotfix is included in both locations, will that produce duplicate entries in the requisite Windows SIF/INF files?

I know from past experience with BTS and your packs, together with KB888111 and the variants thereof, that this isn't a problem, more a niggle, but I tend to try and keep such things tidy anyhow - just in case.

Obviously duplicate files/registry entries won't be a problem because - as you suggest - they should only result in an overwrite.

Cheers,

Andy

I'm pretty certain Siginet and Paul_365 were smart enough to make sure the integrator doesn't write duplicate entires ;)

to completely remove the windows media player 10 context menus for files that get "helped" by microsoft.. type the following in a start->run line.

regsvr32 /u wmpshell.dll

this removes the shell extensions for media player.. (warning ALL shell extensions for media player will be removed..)

Nice tip TechnoHunter. I wish there was a central repository someplace of all the different regsvr32 and rundll32 command line tweaks and hacks. Sort of like the reg tweaks thread over at MSFN.. but for this kind of thing.
