File-Checker > Usage & Download

The HFSLIP File-Checker will inspect the HFSLIP-folders for missing updates (security and optional) and will also report unknown and obsolete updates. This tool will help you to identify old updates which are replaced by newer updates.

How to use the file-checker

  1. download and extract the zip-archive to the HFSLIP-main-folder
  2. Run hfslipfc.cmd (when running the first time, a hfslip.ini will be created)
  3. Open the hfslipfc.ini and enter your options
  4. Run hfslipfc again to start the file-check


The file-checker contains the current update-list for Windows XP, Windows 2000 or Office 2003 Professional. The Windows 2000-extension is created by Parseus. In case of questions look here. Extract the files to the HFSLIP-main-folder.

Windows 2000

Office 2003 Professional

HFSLIPFC v.2013/01/06 with WindowsXP-update-list v.2014/07/04

HFSLIPFC v.2013/01/06 with Windows2000-update-list v.2012/02/19b

HFSLIPFC v.2013/01/06 with Office2003-update-list v.2013/11/21


For Windows XP the file-checker needs filever.exe for checking the version of some files. In case that SOURCE\SUPPORT\TOOLS\SUPPORT.CAB is available, filever.exe will be extracted automatically to HFTOOLS. If you removed SUPPORT.CAB in order to save space, you should extract manually filever.exe to HFTOOLS.

If you want to use the automatic update-check, I recommend wget.exe v.1.11.4 (put it in folder HFTOOLS) from Bart Puype.
