Err.. I read somewhere that these URLa are not authorized but they r hacked by some1 (it said that these links were kept secret by Microsoft till that hacker found'em)

Can someone correct me? Cuz it would be against the rules if i'm correct :confused:

Anyway =)

These links were publicly referenced by the MSDN Program Manager at Microsoft so if they are dumb enough to publicly give the ftp and leave them there (which they are not unless they don't mind the downloads) then so be it.

hi all,
sorry guys when I finished downloading these images, and burnt them on CDs, and tried to install them.
Gave me an error message:
_2769_docutil.msm can't be opened or corrupted.
I don't know why
Error number 1335.
do any one have an answer?

It is a file checksum. You can download the utility at the site I posted (originally from f0dder)

I think you need to install Visual Studio .NET to have a working MSDN 2003.
I tried with Visual Studio 6, but it didn't work.

BTW, the July 2003 MSDN is out, and the link proposed is only April's or something.

I have Visual studio 6.

Donkey, That link you posted didn't have md5Sum to download it was listed.

sorry please get me more clear web site,

I want to understand the checksum.

It took me 5 weeks of off-and-on downloading to get these three successfully on dialup.

I installed it on Windows 2000 without VC++ 6 or .NET and was able to use it as is.

HtmlHelp2 can only be integrated in vs.net and later - it still works fine standalone though.

You get what you pay for ^_^

unxutils _does_ have md5sum - download the zipfile and unpack it.

I have downloaded it and found the file, but it was not documented how to use.
Please can anyone explain how to use it.

I would assume you just give it a file name.

Did you try the standard commandline options for help?: -h /? ...

From a command prompt:

md5sum filename.ext

PS: md5sum --help

hi all,
thanks for all your answers.

But I want to ask very simple question:

How could I make these images work?

Burn them onto 3 CD's then install them. They are CD images.
