Added: updates
  • Added 935839 v5i (unofficial). This release updates Rpcrt4.dll and Shell32.dll 5.0.3900.7680, but replaces blackwingcat's Kernel32.dll 5.0.2195.7161 with WildBill's Kernel32.dll 5.0.2195.7154 and removes Uxtheme.dll and Credui.dll (removing the latter two files from the system32 and dllcache directories, because Uxtheme.dll doesn't work with WildBill's Kernel). The reason for replacing blackwingcat's Kernel32.dll is that it is incompatible with .NET Framework 4.0 (tomasz86).

  • 829395. Although the KB Article lists Winsta.dll 5.0.2195.6824, it is inaccurate. In fact, the update contains build 5.0.2195.6701, which is already in update(s) listed here.

14 December 2011

Changes
  • Updated the notes for 2160329, 2296011, 2436673 and 2286198 to make clear why these updates have not (yet) been removed. 2479628 contains newer files than these four, but it causes problems for systems created by slipstreaming Internet Explorer 6 updates using FDV's fileset. So, if you're using IE6 updates and FDV's fileset, you might want to use 2160329, 2296011, 2436673 and 2286198 instead of 2479628. If you're not, you can disregard these updates and use the newer 2479628 instead (as long as you make sure that you're using HFSLIP 1.7.10 (beta_J v5) or newer, if slipstreaming, because 2479628 requires it!).

  • Added 2288621. While this update is actually for Microsoft Office 2007 SP2, you can extract from it and use with Windows 2000 an update for Uniscribe (Unicode text rendering), Usp10.dll.
Changes
  • Updated the notes for 884872. This update is problematic (tomasz86). As a workaround, install it manually (don't slipstream it), after the update has been extracted, and a number of files from it replaced with newer ones. Please read the notes for more.
