[Closed] XPtsp General discusions

Recommended Posts

What's New in GUI version 1.1:

- The ability to patch a Live System is now included!

- Modified code so that sections needing patching will be built automatically!

- Page 2 is now available (selection between Integration and Normal Install)

- Page 3 is now 2 pages, one specifically for each mode.

- Updated resources to match batch v1.1.

- Included new XPSP1RES.DLL and APPMGR.DLL resources, found in post #1004.

- Included resources with updated icons, found in post #1006.

- Included new MSC files, found in post #1024.

What Is Still Not Done:

- Repatcher has not been written yet.

- Uninstaller has not been written yet.

- More error checking still needs to be written into the code.

- Component selection code has not written (Is necessary for Repatcher!)

- No shortcuts at this point....

- Additional software is not installed via Live Patch mode.

I've spent a good portion of my weekend trying to get the Live Patching code working correctly. It appears to be functional. I've run it on my system and it works for me. Please test it and let me know if you find anything that needs work! Thanks, everybody!

I was looking on the net for something and found this. Is there any chance we could get something like this for the boot screen?

Also, I was looking through the control panel applets and saw this:

Isn't there supposed to be a graphic on the left-side? The other tab looks correct....

Bober: I did some research and realized something.... The boot screen image I posted is 24-bit. The logo needs to be 16-color. Reducing the image to 16 colors yields something very UGLY! So replacing the bootscreen with this is not realistic. Bummer.... :thumbsdown_anim: :crying_anim02:

JBE: I like some of the other screenies, but they are all contaminated by the "Microsoft Vista Ultimate Edition" wording.... Even if they weren't, I still couldn't use them for the boot screen. Now, the logon screen, sure! But not the boot screen.

Everybody: During my testing, the boot screen resource files got moved/deleted. I forgot to re-include the boot screen resource files in the package, so the boot screen won't be patched through the GUI yet. Next version, definitely!

Just tested the modified SAPI.CPL and it fixes the problem. Thanks!

EDIT: One question, is it going to appear properly for systems without that "Microsoft English (U.S.) V6.1 Recognizer" from Office 2003 installed? Just wondering....

U can open XPtsp.v1.1 (batch) with WinRar, open Resources folder there and add your updated .res files

and if U want to update your live system:

U can extract Extra, Programs, Resources folders and batches from "VISO Live 2.7" to a new folder. in "Resources" replace .res files with your updated ones. run 1Copy.bat

Actually, it can look great!

I just don't understand why he used the text "Starting Windows Vista" instead of "Starting Windows..."

Edit: nevermind, just tested it, it does look like **** :( I stick with my own :)

thanks for a fast reply mate but the _ResourcesBlueYellow folder contains folders with the actual bmps/icons/avi not the .res files. (do you have these in .res format)

i am looking for a way to replace these files in the .res files , if you get what i mean ? without having to edit every file by hand, replace every icon/avi/bmp ??

there is 600 files to edit each by manual will take a long time i will do it but was wondering if theres an easier way ?

or is there a blue pack (.res) allready made ? because it seems quite finished ?
