Windows 2000 workaround?

Windows 2000 workaround?

Postby marcoshaw » 10.12.2012, 20:10

I see that I need 665 for Windows 2000 support. Anyone know of any workarounds to make sure all pre-reqs succeed?

I removed the checkbox to create an ISO, and got a bit further... I could create a local HTTP server to pull the file from, but I'm wondering if I just end up in an endless loop of adding more and more files to make this work.

Code: Select all
Starting WSUS Offline Update download (v. 6.6.5) for w2k enu...
Cleaning up existing directories...
Downloading Sysinternals' NTFS alternate data stream handling tool...
--2012-12-10 15:07:11--  http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/Streams.zip

There's even a good chance for it to not work at all, despite you satisfying all dependencies. If MS removed Windows 2000 updates from their catalog file, WSUSOU then won't be able to find any to download.

As you see, many download locations have changed (e. g. for the Streams.zip, change Files -> files). See here for Sysinternals: http://trac.wsusoffline.net/browser/tru ... ernals.txt
Microsoft update catalog: http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/

MS did not remove the updaters!

For Office 2000 use Version 6.2.0 (working without change)
For Windows 2000 use Version 6.6.5 (needs change mentioned below)
For Office XP use Version 6.9.0 (needs change mentioned below)

But be aware of the uppercase-/lowercase-misspellings in all the files referring to sysinternal tools; the following files inside /static/-folder are affected:

.../static/StaticDownloadLinks-sysinternals.txt
.../static/StaticDownloadLink-sigcheck.txt
.../static/StaticDownloadLink-streams.txt

Be aware: not all of them are present in all of the mentioned versions, but where they are, they have to be modified accordingly.

The entries have to be as follows (change only in lowercase/upercase letters!):

http://download.sysinternals.com/files/AutoLogon.zip
http://download.sysinternals.com/files/Sigcheck.zip
http://download.sysinternals.com/files/Streams.zip

.../Files/... have to be changed to .../files/... (change "F" to "f" in all entries – in all mentioned files)
.../Autologon.zip has to be changed to .../AutoLogon.zip (change "l" to "L" in "AutoLogon" – only in sysinternals-file)

Version 6.2.0 is working for all (W2k, O2k and OXP) but might leave missing some things for W2k and OXP.

@BigBoss/Admin: could please anyone post that below the archive links as a permanent advice? Thanks.

Edit:
– misspelling corrected (it's version 6.6.5 (not 6.5.5) that is the last for Windows 2000)
– addendum (not all three files are present in all mentioned versions)
sorry ...

Hi

For Windows 2000 use Version 6.5.5 (needs change mentioned below)


Where can I download this version ? It seems not to be available in the archive.
I also tried http://download.wsusoffline.net/wsusoffline655.zip without luck

Thanks

According to history.txt the last version for Windows 2000 is 6.6.5 !

A version 6.5.5 was never published!

Ok, thanks, wasn't aware there was typo in the reply of OberGuru above, on which I based myself.

To keep the Topic clean, maybe the forum administrator could correct the typo, then my replies can be removed too.

One more thing :

The - to be modified - file ".../static/StaticDownloadLinks-sysinternals.txt" seems not existing in 6.6.5 ?

Sorry, yep – that was a misspelling – Rev. 6.6.5 is meant, not 6.5.5 ... and again thanks for the tip: these three files are not all present in all of the mentioned versions – but where they are present, they have to be modified accordingly. If one or two of them are not present, it's also not neccessary (or even possbile) to modify them. But now it's corrected.

Btw.: I'd not be unhappy if all of the downloadable updates of all the oss and offices (that can be downloaded in that manner) could still be downloaded in the latest versions; I do not appreciate that these former versions have been kicked out; and as in the latest version(s) a third page was introduced (for "old products" – as o2k3), it would not be a big thing to mention there also the o2k, w2k and oxp ... but I do not expect any activities in that direction.

Thanks for the reply.
No problem, typo's happen :-)

I'm trying to find my way with wsusoffline to generate a local copy of everything since W2K and O2K

Just a pitty that warnings and errors aren't written in a seperate errorwarning.log too

What are the tags I could use to filter the download.log automatically to have just a list of messages to be looked after ? I have a small dos-program which I'll use for that together with a bat-file.
Would be great to have that filter-information in the beginning of download.log as INFO lines

BTW : Great stuff, this tool, wished I had found it earlier. I hope I'll be able to use the downloaded data to slipstream my installation cd's

FYI: Version 6.6.5 will work to download and install the Windows 2000 updates (after making the changes outlined above) but you may have to install these manually first:

Code: Select all
http://www.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/rootsupd.exe
http://download.microsoft.com/download/6/5/5/655D2A75-0199-49BF-8BF8-C9ACACF283C3/rvkroots.exe


After doing so the windows update site will also work.

I haven't figured out, yet, how to install these two automatically.
