  1. I get this as well, quite often, so I assume this is yet again another general problem with IPB. Cheers and Regards
  2. Maybe he was looking for some kind of file that had SFX somewhere in the name? Cheers and Regards

    Sounds like a plan. I also had some mysterious problems recently that were happening when going to the settings page, and ONLY when going to the settings page, of all Chrome based browsers. But it wasn't a browser problem, Windows was throwing the error. I could never find out what the issue was, but a fresh install fixed the problem. Good luck! Cheers and Regards

    Thank you. That showed the problem exactly. (I do hate Data File Host. Chrome downloaded a 0 byte file, but Opera downloaded the file correctly.) Unfortunately, I still really can't duplicate the problem. I am also on Win 7 x64 (Ultimate), and I tried the exact steps you used with the exact same versions of the the exact same three browsers you used, all with no problems. FWIW, Firefox was the quickest in its page loading. I tried multiple times with each browser. I MIGHT have had a very slight hang one time with Chrome. The "Loading" did not stay visible, but the page was kind of grayed out. Refreshing the page made everything OK, and I could not make it happen again, trying many, many pages on the site. There was never the slightest hiccup with either IE or Firefox. Sorry. I'm afraid I don't know what's causing your problem. Cheers and Regards

    I still can't duplicate the behavior. Can you possibly record a screen capture video showing exactly the problem behavior in action? Cheers and Regards

    What OS do you use and have you tried different browsers? I can't duplicate your problem. Cheers and Regards

    LOL Not at all, my friend! I never said things are better than they were, I just said he made the best of what was available. You also made the best of what we had to work with re IPB. We all did. As far as I can tell, what has been improved was using a later PHP, which improved speeds a lot, for a while. Of course that also did break existing links to posts on the board, but that can be gotten around, once you realize that is what happened. I do wish there was some kind of script that can go through the board and fix all links that are still broken, but in the meantime I manually fix them when I run across them. Cheers and Regards

    Thank You! I don't hold out a lot of hope for IPB, but your improvements since you took over have made the best of what is available. Cheers and Regards
  9. @nonspin, The tone in your post is uncalled for. While your point that it would always be better to use paths such as %windir% rather than absolute paths like "C:\Windows\" is valid, taking such an antagonistic tone will do nothing but get you banned if it continues. abbodi1406 is an extremely well respected member of this and many other technical forums and he has many abilities and a willingness to help others. Every application author, including MS I'm sure, has published product using absolute paths at one time or another. It would have been much better if you had merely asked whether there was a particular reason why absolute paths were used and whether it would be possible to rewrite the addon to use paths such as %windir% instead. In any case, I'm sure that abbodi1406 will respond when he sees these posts. Cheers and Regards

    Hi dudes

    Welcome to WinCert! Cheers and Regards
  12. I assume you mean the images on the "More Info" page - http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?/files/file/5-win-toolkit/? Liam will have to redo those links, unless someone else has copied them and can share? Cheers and Regards
  13. @pennsylvaniaron, Since it seems to have been verified that the method of creating an updated source works, at least for others, and there is something in your method that is causing your problems, then it seems to me that, at least temporarily, it might be better to abandon your current method and use one that works, such as that by Thiersee, instead of continuing to try to figure out why your method doesn't work. Once you have followed his method exactly, step-by-step and using the exact same source (except for language), addons, and tools, and so, hopefully, achieving the same successful result, including passing SFC, then you will be in a better position to compare the successful method to the one you want to use and see what the differences are and how best to modify things to get the results you want. Also, by trying to duplicate Thiersee's method exactly, then he will be in a better position to help you if you continue to get different results. Thiersee, Pink_Freud, and I all have updated systems that pass SFC and none of us have any trace of KB3136000 showing up, so we can't figure out where you are getting it from, regardless of how often it is mentioned as being a problem by others on the internet. Just my opinion. Good luck! Cheers and Regards
  14. No. The convenience roll-up is not SP2, there is no SP2, and it is very extremely doubtful that there ever will be an official SP2 released by MS. Cheers and Regards
  15. I seem to remember that this was an asked for "feature" that was added to WTK to make it easier to install the OS on various machines. Each time the OS is installed it will also install whatever drivers are found in a particular "driver folder" that can be on a different drive or USB stick. I'm sure the info about this feature are around here somewhere, but I haven't looked very hard for it. This feature can be very, very handy, but can also catch you unaware, as it did you. Cheers and Regards
  16. I can and will, but I'm not sure if it's a solution you want to pursue. Unlike this thread and Windows Update Downloader, whose purpose, as I understand it, is to install the minimum number of updates to satisfy WU/MU, I chose to use WHDownloader, aka Windows Hotfix Downloader, which tries to provide all possible updates including "request only" hotfixes. My purpose in posting was merely to assure you that there is nothing wrong with Rick's NFW installer, nor is the convenience update required for a successful install that does not bug you about KB3136000, and also still passes SFC. Sorry for the slightly OT posts. Good luck with your efforts. Cheers and Regards
  17. I recently reinstalled my Windows 7 Ultimate x64 system a couple of weeks ago, and I updated it "live" the classic way using WHDownloader and abbodi1406's lists and scripts, without the "convenience" rollup, I chose to hide the updates for WAT and Windows 10, 7 in total, and the language packs. I installed NFW 4.6.1 "manually" using ricktendo's installer - dotNetFx461_Full_x86_x64intl_Slim_2016-05-18.exe, similarly to the way you did from the desktop. And I have never separately installed KB3136000, nor has it ever been asked for. My OS shows as completely up to date on MU/WU with no trace of KB3136000 in the list of installed updates. I have no idea what is different on your system regarding NFW, but it's not due to Rick's installer or doing the updates the classic way. But it is something on your system or the way you installed your updates. I doubt it, but in case it makes any difference, but like I said, I updated my installed system live. Sorry I can't help more. Cheers and Regards
  18. KB3145739 was installed on my system 10 days ago, when I last reinstalled my OS, and is still in place. Having it didn't help my initial scan and install today after patch Tuesday. Unless you're saying that I should have uninstalled it and reinstalled it before today's updates? Or maybe that I should be happy with my experiences today because they would have been even worse if I didn't have KB 3145739 installed? LOL Glad to see you around Liam! [OT] @Liam, if I could please ask a favor. At this point anyone that installs Windows 7 probably wants to keep Windows 7 and doesn't want to upgrade downgrade to Windows 10. So the next time you make your updated ISO could you please NOT include the following KB's: KB971033, KB2952664, KB3021917, KB3035583, KB3068708, KB3080149, and KB3123862. Assuming that an install of your ISO passes SFC and can still be updated by the user with those updates or any other updates that come up in the future, then I think that your ISO would appeal to the widest audience possible. Thanks for considering my request. [/OT] Cheers and Regards
  19. @pennsylvaniaron, The problems with WU/MU, especially with "older" OS such as Windows 7, have been going on for quite awhile and have been getting worse. My Windows 7 Ultimate x64 system was completely up to date with WU/MU on Monday, and would pass SFC with no errors. Running WU/MU today took well over an hour to "scan" before it came up with the list of available updates. Then it took well over another hour to install those same updates. In both cases it was just sitting there doing nothing most of the time. After restarting I double checked and it still passes SFC. I then let WU/MU rescan and this time it only took about 5 minutes to come back with info that there was a Security Essentials update and it took less than 5 min to install it, and less than 5 min for another rescan to confirm that WU/MU was now happy and completely up to date again. The situation of WU/MU taking an extremely long time for the initial scan and for the initial install at both the time of the initial Windows 7 OS install and then again after every patch Tuesday is now expected behavior for many people. Which updates that need to be installed first to "fix" this situation seem to vary and don't consistently work for everyone. After the first successful update session each month succeeding runs are better, but the first time is a real bear. If anyone can come up with a reliable solution that works for everyone it would really be appreciated. Cheers and Regards
  20. Please don't double, triple, quadruple, or quintuple post. Your other posts have been deleted. If anyone knows the answer, they will respond, eventually. And if you need to add more info to a post that you have already made, then please just edit your post if no one else has posted in the meantime. Cheers and Regards
  21. While the link that @dareckibmw provided lists a good number of essential application repacks for a complete Windows 7 install, some of which can also be found here at WinCert, for the up to date windows 7 update list, I think that dareckibmw meant to give you this link - http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?/topic/12103-20-avril-2016-update-list-gdr-pour-windows-7-sp1-x86x64-fr-en-de-es-it/ which is the updated link of what was referred to in response to the OP. Cheers and Regards
  22. Lego made a brief appearance about a week ago. Best we understand, he plans to be more available in about a month. That's all I know. Cheers and Regards
  23. Good question. We have to wait for Lego. We can only hope that he is just busy with school. Cheers and Regards
  24. Thanks, niT3_RiDeR_Pr0, but I'm a little confused. In your first paragraph, before "Let's begin", you mention Win10 several times. Did you mean to say Win7? Cheers and Regards
