Re: Onepiece XP Post-SP3 AIO Update Pack FINAL

Yes. It's a good one and not superseded. It contains v. 5.1.2600.6437 (the latest) of usbport.sys, usbehci.sys, usbd.sys and usbccgp.sys. I do recommend it and AFAIK nobody ever had any issues with it. HTH.

I caught a bug right now! Yay! :) Just updated Java to 8u192 but atmzzrSystemCheck v3.4 thinks it's 8u19 !!! The reason for the bug is that Oracle gave java.exe's hexadecimal FileVersion the value 8.0.192.12, instead of 8.0.1920.12, which would be the value corresponding to those in the previous ver...

Re: Getting the posready hack working with win2k3

Therefore, one can add a single entry to the registry and cause XP SP3 to receive POSReady 2009 updates, but there's no porting that tweak to 2k3, no way. Sorry! OTOH, 2k3 x64 updates were used to update XP SP2 x64, way back, but now both are EoL, so it's no use.
