I'm adding 4 updates:

IE6.0sp1-KB2482017-Windows2000-x86-ENU.exe
Windows2000-KB2483185-x86-custom-ENU.EXE
Windows2000-KB2347290-x86-custom-ENU.EXE
MDAC281-KB983838-x86-ENU.exe

These are NOT unofficial updates. They are official M$ updates normally available only for companies who paid for custom support. These 4 files leaked on the Internet. There's also 2416400 available but it's replaced by 2482017 so I'm not uploading it here.

983838 for MDAC is the same update as 2419632 (MS11-002) for XP and the unofficial 2419632 made by WildBill.

Hi all,

1. A new update for notepad.exe (5.1.2600.5877):
Windows2000-UU-HBR-KB975791-x86-ENU.exe
http://www.mediafire.com/?1m25r3j1vu3169n

2. Repacked KB838018 to be slipstreamed correctly: FP40EXT.cab
http://www.mediafire.com/?p2ivhbnakbqlkqe
put file in folder HF\REPLACE\I386

3. Noticed that 2 hotfixes are obsolete:
908506 superseded by 961501
841151 superseded by 890188

4. Analized new HF for IE: KB2482017.
File mshtmled.dll is missed (the newer is from kbz2416400, Wildbill)
New file shlwapi.dll 6.0.2800.2012 breaks wordpad.exe patched by Wildbill. Better to use shlwapi.dll 6.0.2800.2008 from kbz2416400.

5. Following this discussion:
http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/155566- ... l-or-both/

I think that following w2k server HF can work also for w2k pro:
843530 binlsvc.dll 5.0.2195.6944
970483 httpext.dll 5.0.2195.7290

Thanks acus :)

I have a few comments:


1. The original KB975791 for XP/2K3 is no longer offered by M$. It may mean that the hotfix was buggy. I'd be very careful when using it.


2. I'd call it a supplement to KB838018.


4. That's right but I wouldn't say that it's "missing". Check official M$ update:

IE6.0sp1-KB2416400-Windows2000-x86-ENU.exe

There's no mshtmled.dll in it. There's also no mshtmled.dll in 982381 (the last official IE cumulative update). It probably means that updating mshtmled.dll is not necessary in case of W2K.

As for shlwapi.dll, it'd be the best if WB updated his wordpad update basing on the newest version of shlwapi.dll.

Hi Tomasz,

thanks for your comments.

I found new notepad in user_hidden English Update pack for XP and in ricktendo spanish Update pack for XP. I didnt know it was buggy, I can remove it.

You are right about IE HF. I hope that WB uses new shwlapi for his wordpad.

Regards.

I don't know if it's buggy or not ;) but if it's included in both user_hidden's & ricktendo's packs then it should be fine.

I'm considering stopping realising single updates. I'd rather focus on a update rollup which would have all unofficial updates included. There are several benefits it:

1) Easy to manage and update.
2) Easy to test compatibility with different configurations of W2K (IE5, IE6, WB&BWC kernel, etc.).
3) Easy to install and slipstream (1 single package instead of tens/hundreds of single updates).
4) It's possible to add single files not belonging to any particular updates or files from XP SP3, etc.
5) Managing all these single updates is too time consuming.

Could anyone share his/her opinion on this idea?

Of course it'd be a temporary solution until I manage to finish the USP6 project (still LONG time to go...).

Seems like a reasonable step until USP6 is available, but as you know I've always been a proponent of the all-inclusive option. It would seem that the fewer files involved from the user's perspective, the easier an install will be and the less likely to screw it up by either leaving something out or adding something you shouldn't.

But I'm not actively using Win2K right now, so take my input with a grain of salt.

Cheers and Regards

Still I appreciate your opinion very much!

There are so many W2K updates to slipstream/install at the moment (around 300 files including official, HBRs & unofficial) that even I myself get confused all the time :D so I don't even try to imagine how an avarage user feels when looking at the updates list for the first time. The number of unofficial updates is growing very quickly (around 50 at the moment) so I believe that something must be done about it.

And I'm almost 100% sure that no one else except me will be willing to do it ;)

I'm sure you are right. You, Bristols and BlackWingCat are the three main ones spearheading active development it seems. But rest assured your work is appreciated.

Thanks brutus :)


I've prepared a beta version of Unofficial Updates Rollup. It's created 100% automatically by a script without any manual work involved. This is a multilanguage version. I'm working on the English one (many more English only updates included) but it's quite tricky and much more complicated.

I tested the global version in HFSLIP (no difference between integrating the rollup and integrating the single updates) and also in a VM. No problems occured.

[s]Windows2000-UURollup-BETA-x86-Global.exe[/s] (6.01 MB)

By the way, in the next few days I'm going to rearrange the first post to include the rollup and also other updates added by acus, brutus1234 & myself.

I prepared a BETA2 of UU Rollup. I haven't added any more updates yet but there were a few bugs which I've fixed, ex. not all files were installed the rollup was installed in a running system (slipstreaming worked fine). I'm sure there're still other issues to be fixed though.

I've prepared a BETA3 of UU Rollup (Global). I've added KB927489 and fixed some issues with manual uninstall and reinstall. I think I haven't said it before but this rollup does not require unofficial kernel to work.

Unofficial Updates Rollup (BETA4) ready. I've added Services, True Type Fonts (TTF) Pack and Script 5.8. There was also a mistake in all previous versions - the official 972270 is not replaced by the rollup.

And I think I haven't mentioned it before but of course UU Rollup is fully compatible with HFSLIP.

EDIT: There was a small bug in BETA5. Please use BETA5a instead.

I've prepared a BETA5 of Unofficial Updates Rollup. I've only fixed some bugs. This one is very likely to be the final version.

Thanks for a quick fix, acus :) Probably no one has noticed but there the uninstaller of the 2598479 v1 was in Japanese.

By the way, I've been working on UU Rollup (Global) Final and on UU Rollup (ENU). Next I'm planning to do a new version of the HBR Rollup... and I'd like to ask everyone for help. I want to have this rollup available in all 24 supported languages. It means that I need to download 24 (actually 25 because of JPN-NEC) files per each HBR listed here. I don't know how many exactly HBRs are now on the list but I believe the number is around ~200. 200x25 means 5000 files to download...

I've already downloaded 350 files but it's still a long way to go. If anyone is willing to help, please send me a PM. You don't need to download a lot of updates - just a few would still be very appreciated. The task is very simple - you download files in all available languages for each HBR, make an archive and upload it somewhere so I can download and use it to make the rollup. Of course we should talk before in order to prevent overlapping of HBRs.

Anyway, please contact me through PM if you want to help :)

I've finally managed to finish the two versions of Unofficial Updates Rollup. It's available for ENU & Global (non-ENU) systems. The main difference between the two is that there are more (English-only) updates included in the former and I've also managed to merge the two kernels - WB kernel & BWC kernel into the ENU version. I just chose compatible files from each of them and included in the Rollup. Now it's no longer necessary to choose between the two. You can use the Rollup as long as you've got SP4 & UR1 installed. Because both unofficial kernels are included you don't need to install any other unofficial updates or other packages before installing the UU Rollup. Of course you can also slipstream it as it's 100% compatible with HFSLIP.

Please check #1 post for details.

I've started working on a new version of Update Rollup 2. This is just a very first alpha. I'm sure there are some bugs in it. UR1 is not yet included.

tomasz86,

Thank you for the new rollups you've created but unfortunately the link for Update Rollup 2 gives a "Invalid or Deleted File" message.

I'm eager to test these for you. Appreciate your hard work and the time you put into them.

Fixed ^^

Everything worked fine but today MediaFire seems to have problems with URLs that include filename :/ I've changed them to standard ones.

Thanks for your kind words. UU Rollup has been very heavily tested and you shouldn't experience any issues when using it but please be careful with the alpha versions of UR2. They are still in the very beginning stage of development and I'm sure there are many bugs to be fixed.

By the way, my priorities at the moment are:

1) UU Rollup - it will be updated as soon as new UUs are released.
2) HBR Rollup - it's absolutely necessary to merge the ~200 HBRs; there are just too many of them.
3) UR2 - this time there is no place for manual work and mistakes resulting from it (because 99% of work is done by a script) so it will be final.

Next I want to do:

1) IE6/OE6 Rollup - IE6/OE6 installer + all updates merged into one rollup
2) WMP9 rollup - everything related to WMP9 including the installer
3) MDAC 2.81 rollup

These are not that large as for their size but require quite a lot of work because of many packages using non-standard format.

After everything is ready then I'm going to focus on preparing the USP6.

I have uploaded UU Rollup v2. I've removed the custom update 2347290 because, after all, it's not a UU ;) I'll include it in the upcoming Unofficial Update Rollup 2.

I've also decided to try a different host this time. MediaFire's been getting on my nerves for some time - its interface is extremely slow (even though it's a quad-core here; and I use ramdisk for browser cache) and the download counter doesn't seem to work correctly recently.

BlackWingCat has just released a new version of his kernel and this time I'm thinking about switching from WB's kernel32.dll to BWC's kernel32.dll in the UU Rollup. It seems that BWC has added a lot of APIs to his kernel32.dll in meanwhile and the two are not that much different at the moment.

I have started to edit the first post. I added a short explanation about UUs and info about UU Rollup. I'm also going to add all other updates (currently removed but backed up here), including the ones made by acus.

I've also prepared ALPHA2 of UR2.

Windows2000-UR2-KB891861-v5-ALPHA2-x86-ENU.exe [Details]
Size: 42 MB
MD5: 12a1fe8b784dc66b51c003c40542ce9d


This time UR1 is included :!: It seems to work fine both for manual installation and HFSLIP. The result of slipstreaming in HFSLIP is exactly the same as if you slipstreamed all these single updates. Actually it's even better as OCSASNFix.exe and the newest rdpwd.sys are already included in it while you'd have to put them in HFSVCPACK_SW1 normally.

By the way, what do you think about Ge.tt? Are there any problems with downloading? I like it a lot as it's extremaly simple and very fast compared to the previously used MediaFire.

Due to this situation the hotfix should be the last item in HFSVCPACK_SW2. If its not the last item anything installed after it will not install correctly.

It's a late reply but I've tested it any it doesn't work if KB971913 is put in SW2. I think you meant SW1, didn't you? The last item in SW1?

Actually I think the problem is that the Installer service is not restarted when this update is installed. I'll try to modify it a little bit and see if there's any positive effect.

I have Silverlight 4 in SW2 so that's why I need to put it there. Otherwise I would put it in SW1.

Thanks for trying to fix this.

Does it install when you put in in SW2?? I only get a message about available switches during Windows installation, meaning that the switch set by HFSLIP is incorrent. It's installed only when I put it in SW1.

The switch HFSLIP applies is for SW2 so I have to modify SVCPACK.INF changing the switch to /quiet /norestart (used for SW1) then it installs.

UURollup-v3 (ENU) is ready. I have fixed a bug causing Wordpad files being copied to a wrong folder. I've also added a few newer versions of updates and also two files from Windows Server 2003 (ntdetect.com & ntldr) which can make system booting a little faster (1-2 seconds).

UURollup-v3a (ENU) is available. There was a minor bug in the last version.

I did a test with v3a and hfslip. Not sure what's causing it, but during install, an error pops up regarding COM+ registration failing. Here's my hfslip log:

The error in question: http://i.imgur.com/NyN8o.png

And my setupact.log (contains the same contents as setuperr.log as well as more information): http://pastebin.com/wEQFWPQx

I also cannot install anything that uses or requires Microsoft Installer 3.1, such as VMware Tools. The OS appears to install MSI 3.1, but fails to execute msiexec and quits the setup with an error.

Could this all be due to me attempting to install IE6 SP1 with the UURollup?

I'll check the problem when l'm at home. Could you try to add the official M$ Update Rollup 1 to HF and try again?

There are no M$I files in the UURollup.

EDIT: Did you use nLite after HFSLIP? I can see. NET Framework addons in the log. By the way, the UURollup has only unofficial updates included so you must still slipstream all official packages like MSI 3.1 and other updates together with it.

OK, so I have tested it and indeed Update Rollup 1 is required when you slipstream UURollup & IE6. I added the appropriate info to the first post.

I've also forgotten to mention it but yesterday I uploaded a v3 of the Global version of UURollup.

So are there plans to eventually have a single update pack with everything for the lazy among us, or a set of a very few, to allow you to have everything with the least amount of effort and the highest probability of success because of the thorough testing that has been done for compatibility?

Cheers and Regards

Alright, I'm trying a build again with the update rollup 1, and msi 3.1 just to ensure that vmware doesn't need to install it to install vmware tools. I imagine all my issues were due to not including UR1. I'd love to see a UR1+UU package in the future, if possible, since it'd be essentially what SP5 should have been.

At this moment I want to prepare three big packages:

1. Unofficial Updates Rollup (UURollup):
- all unofficial updates included
- ENU & Global version
- updated when new unofficial updates are available

2. Unofficial Update Rollup 2 (UR2)
- all official (non-HBR) updates included
- available in 24 languages
- will not be updated once ready

3. HBR Rollup
- all hotfixes by request included
- available in 24 languages
- updated when new HBRs are found


After these three are ready I'd like to focus on a few smaller packages:
- IE6/OE6 Rollup
- MDAC 2.81 Rollup
- WMP9 Rollup


Finally, after all of these are ready, I want to concentrate on the future new unofficial Service Pack where all of them will be included. Once I've got all these packages ready it will be much easier to merge them together into the USP than merging single updates.

Once you get all the packages done and release them, I will start working on fdv 2000 Server fileset. Breathe some new life into it. I will remove everything except system files and server files. That means no Calculator, Wordpad, Notepad, etc.......

@tomasz86, since PROBLEMCHYLD is going tp work on a slimmed version, it might also be neat to see if Kurt_Aust would incorporate your work to make a full featured install. Just a thought.

I just wanted to post an update: Including the update rollup 1 with your unofficial update worked. I do love seeing 2000 boot up with full color support in explorer.

Thanks for all of these ideas, feedback and help :)

@jimmsta: I set minimal requirements for the UURollup to be SP4+UR1 but it probably works without the UR1 if you don't install IE6 at the same time. Still I think that omitting UR1 is not really a good idea so I'll leave it like this for both ENU & Global versions.

@bphlpt: I'm aware of Kurt_Aust's work but as far as I can see he's focused on official packages only.

Not totally. In his thread http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/97047-up-to-date-windows-2000-install-media-creation-guide/, the second link he gives to download is "Unofficial Windows 2000 Service Pack 5.1.2195.24 Refresh", and it has been for years. If I can be so bold, I think the combined work of Bristols, BlackWingCat, WildBill, and yourself carries on in the spirit and tradition of Gurgelmeyer, and I would think that Kurt_Aust might at least consider a branch of his work that could include your work for increased functionality.

Kurt has always valued stability, and until you, BWC and WB began putting out the quality of work that you all are beginning to do now, there has not seemed to be a stable option to compare with the venerable SP 5.1.

While there are some purists that want Win2K completely original, I think that most who are interested in using Win2K either want it stripped lean and mean using something like fdv's fileset, or want it able to use all the latest versions of all the popular apps. In either of the latter two options, I think it works best if Win2K is "extended" using work such as yours for both safety and functionality. But that is only my opinion.

Cheers and Regards

You're right about Kurt_Aust and USP5.1 :oops:

I'm not sure if this is not too early to incorporate my packages into such a guideline. They're still in the developmental stage and will probably change a lot until the final new USP is ready.

As for the USP itself, I plan to go one step further than Gurgelmeyer did and include packages such as .NET Framework and MS VC++ in it too apart from just including updates (OU, UU, HBR) only.

I have updated the Microsoft Runtime Libraries Collection(x86) addon. It's based on the newest edition provided by ricktendo64 and I also modified its structure because the original one was designed for XP and not all files were copied correctly when used with Windows 2000. Now everything should work fine.

Please check the first post if you want to download the new version.

I have added UURollup v4 (ENU) & v3a (Global).

In the ENU version there are two new files from BWC kernel added (psapi.dll & userenv.dll) and one updated (crypt32.dll). I've also integrated one more UU (978706-v2; thanks M2GD for reminding me about this one). I've also removed some unnecessary catalog files and slimmed down the update.inf file - it should now install a little faster than before.

In case of the Global one I've just removed CATs and worked on the update.inf so you don't really need to install it if you've already installed the v3 version.

I have added three addons:

Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 True Addon
Microsoft Runtime Libraries Collection 2.1.3 True Addon
Windows Imaging Component (WIC) 1.2.0 True Addon


They are based on addons created originally by OnePiece & YumeYao (the second one modified by ricktendo64). Click on "[Details]" next to each one if you want more information.

I've also added URLs to the .NET 1.1SP1 & 2.0SP2 true addons by OnePiece.


EDIT
Please check info about HFSLIP & OnePiece .NET True Addons (the "*" sign under Addons). To avoid all potential problems I'll probably make a one big .NET Framework package (1.1+2.0+3.0+3.5+4.0).
