user_hidden have you created these or do you have any recommendations?

Geez, a little searching would have found these for you. :rolleyes:
Well here's the ones I personally use.

* Internet Explorer 8 plus updates
* .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 plus updates
* Windows Media Player 11 plus updates

Oh, I see Dark Madness already answered you. Oops.

Thanks origgman,

For some reason RS still works for me most of the time(free user) but I do prefer MediaFire to it.

bfrg the timezone updates no longer put the switches in the update.inf so its now up to the updatepack maker to do them manually, it takes a bit of skill but once you know what is what its pretty easy

This may help a bit to explain how to do this http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7333

According to http://www.microsoft.com/technet/securi ... 8-076.mspx
KB952069 Registry Key verification should be as follows:

For Windows Media Format Runtime 9.0, Windows Media Format Runtime 9.5, and Windows Media Format Runtime 11 on Windows XP Service Pack 3
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Windows Media Player\SP0\KB952069_WM9\Filelist

This update pack uses:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Windows XP\SP4\KB952069

What was the decision for doing it this way?

I change mine also but I change mine from

Code: Select all

HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Windows Media Player\KB952069_WM9"


To

Code: Select all

HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Windows Media Player 11\KB952069_WM11"


BTW the reason I change mine is because Microsoft messed up and localized the addreg entries when they should not have, this is what the Spanish hotfix adds

Code: Select all

HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Reproductor de Windows Media\KB952069_WM9"


When it CLEARLY states in the update.inf to not localize

Code: Select all

;--------- Windows Media specific strings ------------;
US_PRODUCT_NAME        = "Reproductor de Windows Media" ; DO NOT LOCALIZE


BTW yumeyao reasoning may have to do with QFECheck, if one uses the SP4 reg string then it will check it, if you use the WMP one it does not (I think)

does not have any effect on wmp updates. esthetics and MS doesn't always play by the rules :)
Rick beat me to also mentioning qfecheck does not see wmp updates
as it only lists in the SPx tree.

KB909520

Looking at this fixpack, the digital signature for basecsp.dll is displayed as not valid. The digital sig for the cat file is okay.
The update pack does not include the basecsp.cat which I assume is due to the fact that it was thought that basecsp.dll was correctly signed. Sigverif agrees with my finding.

Is it normal for Ms to distribute digitally signed files that do not verify?

the basecsp.cat = kb909520.cat in the pack.

are you saying the basecsp.dll does not verify against the cat when renamed ? or it does not verify at all, if so that is an MS issue of many.

How does one verify a file against its CAT?

I looked at the file via its Digital Signatures properties tab and also ran sigverif against it. From the looks of it, the DLL does not verify..I can understand why the CAT was renamed (clarity), but does that not differ from the way the fix is installed stand-alone?

Some fix detection schemes will fail when the original cat file is renamed to something else. It even confused you for a minute :lol:

you can use signtool which is part of Windows SDK for Windows Server 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5

info here: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa387764(VS.85).aspx

If you want to extract SignTool.exe from a smaller download, adric, It's included in my rollback utility for XPx64.

Thank you 5eraph. I'm new at this, but I need to ask.. In your .inf, you talk about adding and removing information from the catdb. Does that mean if I simply rename kb909520.cat back to basecsp.cat, I willI also have to do something with the catdb?

Also, is there a way to list what is in included in the catdb?

As you can tell, I'm not really sure how all this fits together. :?

Thanks, Al

On a system with the affected catalog file installed, I believe that you'll want to remove kb909250.cat from the database, then add basecsp.cat to the database. Assuming the renamed file is in the same folder as SignTool, the following command lines should work in a CMD box in that folder.

Code: Select all

signtool catdb /r /v kb909520.cat
signtool catdb /v basecsp.cat

For more information on SignTool command line arguments, type "signtool /?".

I don't know if the contents of the catalog database can be listed with SignTool. It doesn't appear to include a mechanism for that. But the log file for the database should list all catalog files that have been added or removed. The file can be found here: "%SystemRoot%\system32\CatRoot2\dberr.txt".

Thanks, makes more sense now. One more thing. Do you know what kind off errors might occur in the system if a cat file is missing in the catdb?

I'm trying to understand how the system uses the catdb. I renamed a couple of IE8 cat files to include the -IE8 prefix that was missing in the cat file and I am wondering now if they need to be changed back to the original name to match what is in the catdb.

Thanks for your patience.

The system file checker associated with Windows File Protection will attempt to replace the unsigned files with signed versions; first from DLLCache, then from your Windows installation disc. It will not find signed files. To trigger the system file checker to validate your system files immediately, type "sfc /scannow" in a Run box.

SetupErr.log in %SystemRoot% will list unsigned system files encountered when Windows was installed on the machine.

SigVerif.exe will list unsigned files present on the system.

An error similar to the following is given when "QFECheck /v" is executed if the proper registry entries exist.

Code: Select all

KB967756:  This hotfix should be reinstalled.

   The following files are not valid in the system catalog:
      C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSI.DLL
      C:\WINDOWS\SYSWOW64\MSI.DLL

Installed files? I don't know how changing the file names in "%SystemRoot%\system32\CatRoot" will affect the database.

there is NOTHING wrong with the update pack.

give more information about your integration.
ie: source, addons etc.....
do you use RVMi or nLite.
if using nLite are you removing anything?

I've been playing with your pack and I've noticed an interesting hiccup. If I use this pack on XP Home, and then do sfc /scannow, and I don't have the merged CD in it'll ask for the "Windows XP Professional". I pop the merged cd in, it goes for a while, then stops and asks for the Home CD. I remade my merge, replacing the updated winlogon (since its my assumption that winlogon controls sfc) with the original one from the CD, and I get the same result. It wants the XP Pro

Integration was with nLite and your pack from November
