I have downloaded and extracted XP sp2. I want to modify the netfw.in_ file before I roll the service pack out to my LAN XP users. I uncompressed the netfw.in_ file by using the "extract" command and produced the netfw.inf file. I made the desired changes to the netfw.inf file and used the "compress" command to recreate the newly modified netfw.in_ file. I did this for the netfw.in_ file under the "ip" and "ic" directories.
When I run XP2 update executable "i386\update\update.exe", the service pack starts to install but fails trying to install i386\ip\netfw.inf. Any ideas on what I've overlooked?
