Anyone figure out a way to load stylexp with the new sp2 beta?

Or is there some better way to use themes?

Thanks

The wireless support is much better now. The available networks screen looks cool and works great!

The popup blocker is also working perfectly. This doesn't "feel" like a beta at all.

I am a Beta Tester fro this software, I Have downloaded it and when i try to install it when it checks my Configuration it just closes and pops up with setup could not verify integrity of the file Update.inf. Make sure the Cryptographic service is running on this computer.

Please Note: Windows XP SP2 does not nor will it ever contain a Microsoft IE Download manager. The Download management feature is currently only part of Windows Longhorn M5.

It is not expected to feature in SP2.

That is the Download manager at Betaplace & Windowsbeta that Microsoft use's to distribute BETA's to official testers. It can only be used at Betaplace by official Microsoft testers and only works with Files Microsoft choses to distribute with it.

hrm, anyone got a UXTHEME for this?

also, i have found winupdate v5 seems to be giving me an error

Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot display the requested page.

You may wish to try one of these sources for more information about Windows Update:

Support Information

About Windows Update

Windows Update Home Page

Error Number: 0x80070422

any ideas?

And this was from the other thread. It works, as you can see in the above screenshot. I used Replacer to do it.

Which visual style is that? :)

[edit]

Damn, just downloaded xpsp2-express.exe and now it tells me I have to uninstall my current SP2 installation. But I can't, because I used my home-made XP CD with SP2 slipstreamed :(

Is there any way to avoid this stuff and just install it?

I have a question before i install it to test it, where it says "180 Day License

Prerelease Version of Service Pack 2 for Microsoft Windows XP

Professional or Home Edition " does that mean it stops working after 180 days? or did i miss read something somewhere? :huh:

yes, it will stop working after 180 days, just like xp betas did, as did the sp1 betas

if you update...the 180days restarts
