Hello,

I'm using this update pack with nLite (latest version) and having a problem integrating to a clean XP SP3 source. With this pack, and only this pack - no addons, tweaks, etc..., nLite is throwing errors while trying to integrate related to files that already exist and it's different every time. The already existing files are from the pack and I can see them in the root of the source folder as the integration is happening. No spaces in my path name.

Also, the file that comes up as already existing in the error message ultimately gets left behind in the root of the source directory.

Host system: Win 7 x64.
Anti-virus: none
Additional: assigned myself explicit full control rights to my whole "slipstream" directory.

Any ideas?

p.s. Just ran Crap Cleaner to empty out temp files...no good.

I did a new build with all of my usual add-ons using the RyanVM Integrator on a Windows XP SP3 computer.

The pack is PERFECT just like it always is.

Yeah, I suspect it is. After posting, I downloaded the OnePiece pack and tried it alone in nLite and same strange file left over problem occurred. Oh well, I'm looking to do a system rebuild anyway, so I'll see what happens then.

I could not find any reg entries for KB2724197 after I installed the October update pack. The qfeUpPck.inf identifier for this fix looks wrong. The November pack has the same typo. Could this be the cause for the missing reg entries?

[KB2734197]
HKLM,"%SP4UPDATES%\KB2724197","Description",0x0,"%SECUPDATE% (KB2724197)"

The KB2724197.cat file is there, but no reg entries.

For those now on Win8, if you don't like the lack of the "Start" button and thus the easy access to the Start Menu, now replaced by the Start Screen, then you might want to check out this thread - http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/158526- ... n-in-win8/ for ways to get them both back.

Cheers and Regards

personally I use ClassicShell.
I used it on some client Win7 PCs for the past few years so using it on Win8
was a no brainer for me.

Is this a concern with KB2753842 or not an issue if you don't use OTF fonts?

Thanks user_hidden for the update, greatly appreciated. As far as the concern with KB2753842, since this update pack would be used to perform a fresh install, CorelDRAW's or any other program's fonts that might be affected would be installed AFTER the initial OS setup. So, my guess is, it shouldn't be a problem.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

From everything I have read about this issue, and considering that the update can be removed if you discover that it creates a problem for you, you can really go either way. On the one hand you can remove it if necessary, but on the other, which, for you, is more likely - running into that very, very rare rogue font that might be hiding a nasty, or needing to use a font that this update might cause to stop functioning?

http://graphics-unleashed.unleash.com/2 ... -some.html
So what is the problem with this update? While it claims to prevent certain rogue (infected) OpenType fonts from working, it will stop all PostScript Type 1 (PFB) and all OpenType fonts containing Type 1 data from working in applications such as CorelDRAW and QuarkXpress. There may be other programs affected as well. Since this update is so new, more data is coming available all the time.
Personally, I chose to skip this update figuring that MS will come up with a better one before I mistakenly download a rogue font.

Cheers and Regards

KB2753842-v2 has been released to fix the font problem.

i've always kept the QFE UpdatePack "untouched", so i'm not 100% sure if i did this right -

i copied the KB2753842-v2 "cat" file from Onepiece's v6.3.1 and placed it inside the QFE UpdatePack...
i then deleted the KB2753842 "cat" file from inside the QFE UpdatePack...

i also copied the "atmfd.dll" from Onepiece's v6.3.1 and placed it inside the QFE UpdatePack...

i then edited the "qfeUpPck.inf" only BELOW the "[KB2753842]" to replace all "KB2753842" with "KB2753842-v2", bumped up the 'Version' to "5.1.2.235", the 'BuildDate' to read ONE HOUR above the atmfd.dll's actual MS modified-on date (this seemed to be how all ofther files referenced were also), and changed the 'BuildCheckSum" to read "4f7ec" (the BuildCheckSum used inside Onepiece's v6.3.1)...


everything seems to be working flawlessly - does the above sound like i did it "right"?

if so, i'll pat myself on the back...
if not, i'll dive into the deep end without a paddle...

<pats self on back>


actually, using Universal Extractor, the only thing i "needed" (or felt i needed and therefore pulled from Onepiece v6.3.1) was the 'BuildCheckSum'...

where does that number come from?

in fact, with him now on Win8, i wouldn't mind assisting in anyway i can toward the continuation of the WinXP Update Pack (because of "ClearType", i can **NOT** upgrade from WinXP)...

there is a very VERY small percentage of people whose eyesight is so "precise" that the red and green "dots" that are generated by ClearType makes the font **WORSE**, not "better"... *FUZZY*, not "clear"...

for the vast MAJORITY of people, their eyesight *sucks so badly* that they don't even "see" the red and green "dots" and for THOSE PEOPLE, ClearType is the best thing ever introduced by Microsoft...

ClearType is a MAJOR **HEADACHE** for those of us with "good eyes"...
i am hearing word that even Microsoft is finally acknowledging this and Win8 uses GRAY SHADING instead of red and green "dots"...


i myself will go (back) to Mac before i "upgrade" to a Microsoft O/S that ramrods "ClearType" down my throat...
but it's been so long since i was on Mac that i'm not sure if they do the "ClearType" **CRAP** or not anyway...


edit: and yes, i'm aware of the ClearType "tuners"...
you can "tune" an AM radio all you want, it is still an AM radio...

And my eyes are even worse than most - both near-sighted and color blind (typical male red-green) - so ClearType works for me. :)

nice "try", 'smartepants'...

that does *NOT* disable it *everywhere* !!!...

research it, you'll learn something - you can **NOT** ***FULLY*** disable ClearType in ANYTHING Vista or newer !!!...


ps - we kinda accidentally hijacked this thread, additional ClearType CRAP can be discussed in another thread if need-be... trust me, a "good" set of eyes will NEVER "get used to" the FUZZY look... and it appears that even Microsoft is admitting that with GRAY-SCALE "anti-alias" font rendering in Win8... "good" eyed people have been BITCHING AND MOANING about *NO WAY TO FULLY DISABLE* ClearType for YEARS now... it is only an "issue" for the good-eyed folks, the rest of you really do NOT "see" what we see, it's as simple as that...

clear type is like setting it to blurry vision... can't understand why anyone ever thought lines twice as thick as they are supposed to be and out of focus would help.... makes me feel ill


IE8 has it.... tools options advanced multimedia and clear

Always use clear type for HTML
