Announcement

There will be one final update to see out XP, when I cannot say for sure but there will definatly be another update.

I have recently upgraded to W7 and found it to be full of silly yet seriously restrictive usability regressions. I will most definitely miss XP, microsoft seem to have forgoten it's the little things that make all the difference.

How to remove a patch from your UDP?

Hey there, xable. Great job on these UDPs, they work great. I had one question about excluding a patch, specifically KB980195. I want to keep the rest of your UDP, but don't want KB980195 in there because of possible legacy application conflicts due to the kill bits. My question is, how to do this *correctly* without breaking something?

In glancing at the structure of the contents of the UDP, here is my 3-step plan (please tell me if this is correct and safe to do):

-Remove the below from entries.ini. (OK to remove whole section or should i just remove the HKLM...line?)
[registry_addreg]
;980195
HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{0002E510-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}","Compatibility Flags",0x00010001,0x400

-Remove the below from XUDPack.inf.
;980195
HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{22FD7C0A-850C-4A53-9821-0B0915C96139}","Compatibility Flags",0x00010001,0x400
HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{314111B8-A502-11D2-BBCA-00C04F8EC294}","Compatibility Flags",0x00010001,0x400
etc, until down to the next patch section

-Remove the corresponding .CAT file under the svcpack subdirectory.
Actually I just glanced there and don't see one. Does that mean the .cat/update exe isn't needed and basically the "patch" is simply those registry entries in the XUDPack.inf file?

In doing the steps above, if later on we decide we do want to install that update, will Windows Update catch that it isn't "installed" and offer it as an update?

Thanks!

Re: How to remove a patch from your UDP?

Hi Dave,

You really don't want to be removing that update unless you have to and you know what your doing, it's a Critical Security update and by removing it your making your install unsecure.

That said, your steps are correct, it's Ok to remove the whole section as there are no other entries to be added and a catelog (.CAT) file is not needed because no binarys are updated. 980195 supersedes 950760 so both of these will appear on WU if you remove 980195.

Just to be clear, this is at your own risk. I take no responsibility for the consequences of you removing updates from my pack. smile

Re: How to remove a patch from your UDP?

I have an original Windows XP Pro SP2 CD.
Do i have to slipstream the SP3 prior to slipstreaming the SP3 update pack?
That makes the most sense to me, please advice................

Yes you do adilmalik. You can do it in one go with nLite, just point it at service pack 3 and my update pack and it will do both at the same time.
