Neptune Modifications

Adding Zip Support

Zip on neptune.jpeg

Search in google for "329048.EXE"

Open a cmd window and browse to the directory where you saved the hotfix , type 329048.EXE /T:C:\Temp /C (change the path in bold if you do not want it to be extracted there)

Browse to the folder where you extracted the files and copy the following files to system32 Dunzip32.dll, Dzip32.dll and Zipfldr.dll

Then register (using regsvr32.exe) Zipfldr.dll

In certain configurations you might have to restart to fully enable (most likely not)

The rest of the files can be deleted as they wont be needed

Adding Whistler 2462's Home networking wizard

Hnetwiz.dll from 2462 on neptune.jpg

As i recall(Anyone who knows of any offical documents confirming this , contact me ) one of neptunes planned features was a networking wizard (allthough i asssume it was supposed to be html based like the logon screen & the add users applet)

Copy hnetwiz.dll from 2462's %SystemRoot%\System32 into Neptune's %SystemRoot%\System32 then register it using regsvr32.exe

Optional; To create a shortcut in the startmenu use this link

%SystemRoot%\System32\rundll32.exe hnetwiz.dll,HomeNetWizardRunDll

Adding Whistler 2462's Terminal Services Client

Tsc on neptune.jpeg

Copy mstsc.exe from 2462's %SystemRoot%\System32 into Neptune's %SystemRoot%\System32

then just run it from there

Other Stuff


shimgvw.dll is the dll that conatains the Picture and Fax Viewer , registering is succesfull & running it in netune fails with "The procedure can not be found"

00:00:15.422: GetProcAddress(0x68900000 [c:\winnt\system32\KERNEL32.DLL], "IsTNT") called from "c:\winnt\system32\OLEAUT32.DLL" at address 0x7799E788 and returned NULL. Error: The specified procedure could not be found (127).

running shimgvw.dll though dependancy walker shows that gdiplus.dll is missing from the system


from a plus pack  ??

uses 98/me style themes (although many things in neptune have references to ME , probably better to use themes from there)
