Save it with the same name msgina.dll
But u hv to save the file in some other location bcoz windows will not let u overwrite the existing msgina.dll file in System32 folder.

After that u can use Replacer s/w to replace the existing msgina.dll file with ur hacked one.

Re: 4 options on menu

@Vishal

I saw on the latest Sony Vaio (my friend's dad laptop) .. that there are infact 4 options there. I couldnt bcoz at that time it wasnt possible otherwise i could hav taken the screen shot or something.
then I forgot it ..
now today after reading this topic .. I want to use that option it self...
and on the MSFN link (thans to it_wazznt_me) its already posted that..
You can also install MS Hotfix KB875506 and add a new registry setting
...
I cant find that hotfix on the microsoft site?

I read it when it_wazznt_me posted that thread link. But didnt test it.

But after ur post, I read the whole topic again and the d/l link is also posted there. :)

For u I hv uploaded the English version of the HOTFIX here. ;)

After installing the Hotfix, just run the attached Registry file and u'll get what u want. :D

PS: I checked the msgina.dll file again after installing this hotfix, but found nothing special in it. Seems that they just patched the file's internal code. :(

HELP AND SUPPORT
Thnx vishal..I too actually searched for the hotfix and couldnt find it and installed all the hotfixes available from the M$ site and then thought "Let me forget coz i had tried ur trick and let me not take another chance" but i think this way its easy

Me 2 didnt read the link in the msfn forum but the link for the hotfix given there is
ftp://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/W2J/Hotfix_HB_XP_060420.zip

This zip-file contains several languages.

BUt u shud get this hotfix when u click on windows update:confused: but that doesnt happen:eek:

Hey, do you know that most Dell Inspiron laptops (like mine) already have Hibernate button enabled in the Shutdown dialog box?

Vishal I was fascinated by ur's Hibernate button's trick...

I suceeded to change it in my first attempt(i also changed the bitmap 20140 & 20142)
and it worked..

But my work didn't fascinated me and I tried it again with the new msgina.dll file
and............................

my system went unbootable (It showed me the boot screen but after that it restarted again)

i tried various combinations with F8 key but same problem showed me the boot screen and restarted

finally i decided to reinstall my Windows XP since all my "Program files" ,"Documents" etc. were in different drives. then booted my PC with my XP cd and I saw the "REPAIR" option.
i Proceeded accordingly and reached the command window. I thought it to be a sucess as now i could replace that file with the original backup file stored in "E:\Back UP\"

BUT I WAS Unable to copy the same to my mother directory i.e C:
first of all there was a space in between and that command window didn't supported wildcards.

then i remembered that ResHacker stores a copy of original file as "original-filename_original.extention"
I tried to enter my working directory "E:\Works\"

BUT It displayed "Acess denied" neither it permitted to copy that "msgina_original.dll" to my C: drive where i can rename it and replace it.
Mind it ALL THE COMMANDS WERE FUNCTIONAL IN C: DRIVE

then i tried to copy a file from from CD-ROM And VOILA i succeeded in copying it.
I used my father's PC to copy his "msgina.dll" file and overwrite over mine and again succeeded and my PC started with no damages
EXCEPT that now i don't see any shutdown box when i click the shutdown button from startmenu it remains unreacted.
and i have to use other means to "turn off" my PC.


So i have provided my full history, so if anyone can help.

Guys i noticed a peculiar thing which after regaining my powers back.
Did you noticed i also changed shell32.dll but all the gray coloured info are available
but with my corrupted msgina.dll file, it is not so
IS IT one of the way we can assume that the modified file is corrupted.

Friends there isn't anything wrong with Vishal's tute. It's just bcoz of incomplete information & incomplete work. Many of us don't read the tute completely & so creates prob for themselves. Read the tute comletely, understand it & then apply it. Also try to understand that what u r doing.

I m using Resource Hacker for last 2 yrs & I didn't found anything wrong with it. If U will use it in correct way, nothing will b wrong & someday U will b able to write a tute like Vishal Gupta.
