"update pack 20170628": 5eraph's Post-SP3 EOS update pack released on 28/06/2017. Not sure about what was meant by removing updates, but the KB4018466 was later mentioned as superseded.
To have an idea about the 20170628 meaning I'm tracking one of the rest hotfix there and finally end up with the KB4039384 (Unicode Script Processor), but that KB isn't there in 5erPOSUp.inf
Thanks for KB4018466 indication, I wasn't see it earlier.

I agree with the rest off topic post but the early development of a human seems to hit the same bad attitudes again and again over the centuries. I suppose that today parents/society has to be better from the previous one and the one's before that, but that's not the case. It's like that only the most corrupted create the current/given society every time, like it is some kind of filter in place with the purpose to erase morality, compassion, dignity and justice and other higher etheric values from the mortal level while these values create wealth and good life in the first place.

Important Offtopic:

WHO (the organization that declared 2019-nCoV was not responsible for human-to-human transmission in the early days of the pandemic and advised against an urgent suspension of international travel, even after this statement turned out to be completely false) revised the definition of herd immunity: https://www.zerohedge.com/political/who ... ts-website

This development suggests that indepedent scientific thinking will soon be forbidden worldwide, since scientific definitions are allowed to change after political pressure, with a complete replacement and disapperance of the previous definition.

People worldwide should resist, with any means available to them, against the aristocracy that viciously attacks human societies and civilization. The Great Reset may become a Great Rollback to the Middle Ages.

Offtopic question:

Thanks for sharing the link and your thoughts about it. I definitely agree that the human race can continue without being forced to rely solely on Pharma for it's salvation, and to be taught otherwise is wrong, and probably at least partially politically motivated. However, I also believe that Pharma can be beneficial, and to say that the human race is better off by ignoring all vaccines is also wrong. Yes, that approach has the danger of leading to over-population and the resulting problems that brings to the species, but I can't agree that it is better to just let disease "thin the herd," even if I do agree that is one solution to the problem. I guess I agree with WHO's original position that essentially stated, as I understand it, that herd immunity is achieved through the combination of vaccines and survival from previous infection. I think that means that yes, herd immunity can be achieved without vaccines, but then with a resulting higher loss of life. Correct? Would it be "better" to let smallpox and other deadly diseases keep the population in check? Some people believe that it would.

So, I'm in a quandary. I'm in favor of everyone having the right to their own opinions and beliefs, as long as they don't interfere with the rights of others. On the one hand, I respect those who don't want to have restrictions placed on them, vaccinations, travel, masks, etc, but on the other hand, I don't want those folks anywhere around me and my family, and I don't think I should then have to pay for their care, though taxes, etc, when they get sick. What to do?

What is your opinion about vaccines, for COVID and any other disease? Are they in general a good thing? Will you get vaccinated for COVID?

Respectfully, Cheers and Regards

@bphlpt

I also believe that relying on Pharma can be beneficial in a democratic system - I prescribe drugs daily. Vaccines are also very important, and played an important role in containing diseases like measles. This, of course, does not change for a bit the fact that herd immunity may be achieved by natural means, even if it is brutal. Any attempt to edit scientific facts based on political opinion, without clarifying that it is policy and not science, is very dangerous. The academic and technological elites may be able to rewrite the scientific books, based not on experimentiation, observation, and mathematic inference, but based on their wishes, visions and interests. This is fascism beyond aristocracy, similar to the religious position of doctors in the ancient tribes.

In the case of COVID-19 vaccination we can see a concerted effort to silence any attempt to independently study the effects of the newly discovered vaccines on the population, which could risk the success of the vaccination program. Vaccines are reserved from local governments, and independent, non-governmental research groups are not permitted to verify the manufacturer's claims on safety and efficacy, prior to large scale deployment. FDA and EMA issued Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) under extreme political pressure while a significant minority (~20%) of the FDA commitee was against issuing the EUA. At the same time, complete legal immunity - civil and criminal - is granted to the vaccine manufacturers.

Both for scientific (inadequate studying of long-term effects, prevention of human-to-human transmission, and lack of good faith to the scientific results presented by manufacturers that are not legally liable) plus political reasons (the democratic values of the West are threatened) I do NOT intend to be vaccinated until democracy has been secured. I will continue using personal protective equpment to prevent human-to-human transmission and continue providing healthcare services, as I have been doing since the onset of the pandemic.

With regard to your last question, I think that excluding potential public health threats from society requires absolute trust to the scientific establishment recommendations. Absolute trust corrupts absolutely. We know the end result of concentration camps for health and eugenics policies in Nazi Germany.

Today's situation is definitely different than others that have occurred over the centuries. I'm not aware of any other time when there were means for such rapid communication of information and rapid spread of disease due to both travel and population density. You have the rapid spread of disease and the even more rapid spread of information, and conjecture and misinformation, about it. Then you add the extreme political pressure to do something, anything, about the problem, and the threat that if you don't do something that you will be judged that you are contributing to the problem rather than to its solution. This judgement occurs by factions within any particular country, and between countries. That attitude is made more of a problem because of societal issues. It's kind of like education. Back a few decades ago, it was more common for parents, and students themselves, to take a more active role in their education, and take responsibility for the student's success or failure. Now, it seems it's more likely that both the students and their parents try to put all of the blame on the teachers and the school for any failures that occur. It's always someone else's fault. Then on top of that, add in the situation with media today. Often it seems that newscasters are more concerned about being the story rather than reporting it. Add in the vast proliferation of folks trying to either make a living or just get their 15 minutes of fame by being on TV, radio, print, blogging, etc. and here we are. It's good that we're not just being force fed one "truth," but with the vast amount of noise out there, you can always find whatever "truth" you want to believe. "Don't confuse me with facts! President, (or pastor, or teacher, or second cousin, or 'Joe Blow' on the internet) said ______, so that must be the truth!"

As a result of all of that, it is definitely true that the COVID vaccine was forced out faster than any vaccine ever has before. Yes, global politics forced that to happen. But don't put ALL of the blame on the politicians of any particular country. The "public" [including the media] wouldn't let there be any other result. Of course each country wanted to have the first vaccine released, for bragging rights, financial gain, political advantage, and career advantage for individuals involved no matter how peripherally, including the politicians. Also, of course, that same public and media will vilify everyone involved if those vaccines end up having any problems, without either the public or media taking any responsibility for the situation. "It's not our fault, it's 'THEM'!"

We have lost all patience as a species, we can't wait, we want it all NOW. At least that seems true for the more "advanced" sections of society. The third world is still willing to wait, but their sometimes wiser approach is not the one that is heard through the media.

To me this covid vaccine is total non sense , When even oral Typhoid Vaccine took India 27yrs to verify its safety and long time side effect , Here they are now making covid vaccine within 9 months. Anyone with common sense will stay away from it.
Most people here died in Corporate Hospitals , The recovery rate in Corporate Hospital is 13.2% where as in Public hospital is 97.1% (More people die due to air population). These figures are shocking to me. Public Hospital are using high flow oxygen , Azithromycin, Paracetamol and HCQ but private hospital are using fancy pants like Remdesivir and strong steroid. More people died due to these idiots in Corporate hospital.
I belief healthcare shall not be under corporate entities.
This whole pandemic is very shady. It killed something called democracy as free will died long ago, You cannot go out due to this draconian lock down. I wont be shocked if all evil politicians planned it.
How Hill Gutes knew in 2017 that their will be a huge pandemic in few years unless it is planned? Why FAntony Fauschy said we are not ready for next pandemic again in 2017? Why these two idiots are friends?
@harkaz Science died long ago as it doesn't favor corporate. EV was a thing in 1990 but all oil companies shut it down. Media is a control and all that it feeds are lies.

Hi @harkaz,

I'm going to re-create FINAL OnePiece update pack for all languages, to be like SP4 with all updates. I downloaded all from your repository and I was hope I can find .cat files for each used update.

My goal is build newest AIO INTL Packs, OnePiece last update is from 22-07-2017

Code: Select all

https://www.wincert.net/forum/topic/12210-onepiece-xp-post-sp3-aio-international-update-packs-final/
I would like to compare his pack with your latest SP4, to find differences / missing updates.
I already downloaded all updates from your Post SP4 Rollup in all languages.
I have also downloaded complete files to build indentical UpdatePack v1.0.9 from his last update.

Can you help me with this findings please? I would like to build it as soon as possible as I build tool to convert XP into modern installer - XP2ESD, that can help everyone create XP integrated media to make FINAL AIO XP distribution in one single install.wim / install.esd


EDIT: I made latest OnePiece packs for all languages, you can find them on Wincert

@GH0st Unfortuantely, I don't have access to any such updates.

@George King The XP2ESD project seems very interesting, I'll take a look.

I can rebuild all packs. I also got latest flashplayer. Now I need to have a look on .NET updates from OnePiece packs to make it absolutly FINAL.

Btw, KB4501226 means Microsoft released more updates for Windows XP based systems, maybe someone can grab it from Windows Update servers, but I don't have idea how to scan WU for all possible files..

@George_King
The layout of the links is:

download. windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/uprl/yyyy/mm/windowsxp-kbxx-x86-embedded-enu_hash.exe

First try searching Google (the best crawler available for public Internet) for "msdownload/update/software/uprl/yyyy/mm/windowsxp" replacing yyyy and mm sequentially and replacing 'uprl' with 'secu' for security updates.

If you find nothing, then you need to hack the server to bypass the 403 forbidden message and list contents of:

http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msd ... e/software

That would not be legal though.

@harkaz

Another idea is write small link generator that will try all possible combinations to get hash - yes it's insane number, but can be doable and maybe better instead of hacking Windows Update. I asked one guy, will see if he can do it. I'm not able to write app like this.

@harkaz

I tried integrating USP4 into Windows XP Starter SP2 OEM ISO. Now it doesn't accept any serial key during install. Same problem is with SP3 integration.

1) I tried original SP2 setup OEM media with product key MD6HB-6Y8XQ-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx it works
2) Integrated USP4 or SP3 refuse product key during setup with this message "The product ID you entered is not valid"

Do you have any idea how to fix it?

Did you do the integration on a computer running NT 5.x ? (Win 2000, XP, XP x64, Server 2003, Server 2003 x64)

Key entry will no loner work if you do it under NT 6.x or later (Vista or later)

SHA-1: e1eda98d5352b3ce50cf60355895477f84c81ddc

2019 Christmas Special!
An update rollup to update a SP4 v3.1b system with all hotfixes included in the May 2019 update pack (SP4 End-of-Support Update PACK).
A processor with SSE2 support is required.


NOTE: To update .NET Frameworks versions 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 with the latest patches, please reinstall the respective components from the Control Panel.
If you are using a slipstreamed install of SP4 (i.e. you have NOT used the SP4 installer in the past), you need to integrate the SP4 End-of-Support Update PACK to SP4-slipstreamed media, before attempting to reinstall .NET Frameworks.

Recommended install path, if starting from SP1/SP2/SP3 base (if starting from SP0, upgrade to SP1 or SP2 first):
1. Install WindowsXP-USP4-v3.1b-NODOTNET-x86-ENU.exe and reboot.
2. Install May 2019 update rollup and reboot.
3. Install all required .NET Frameworks from Control Panel and reboot.
4. Wait for post-install tasks to complete


Is this final "support update" cumulative, containing everything from SP4, and then some? Or is it only the "and then some", requiring separate installation of SP4? If it is separate, please consider merging them into a single final cumulative SP4 version, so that anybody who wants all the windows updates MS ever released in the history of Windows XP, will be able to get them in a single installer. I've got Windows XP on an older computer and I want to just make absolutely certain that it's got the maximum possible protection from things like security updates and critical updates, without having to install multiple updates.

"And then some", so separate install of SP4 first.

While it would be nice to have it all in one installer, it doesn't look like Harkaz will have the time to combine them anytime soon.

I assumed that simply meant he won't add anything new to his overall project. However he really should combine the 2 parts of his overall project (SP4 and the post-SP4 update). That would make it a fitting end to the project. As it is now, he's left his project unfinished.

How rude ... Its a quick ... easy process to combine the two before you make your ISO, it requires you to DOUBLE CLICK it one time, boom, all files updated!

That means, once you are done, your ISO will have it all, so your fresh install is FULL and complete

The reason for not creating a 'final' SP4 is that the final system binaries are not compatible with all processors that Windows XP originally supported. A service pack, by definition, has the same minimum system requirements as the original OS release.
