  2. Kext: DIY KernelEx extensions

    I mean, I know that, but using the version from 2012 doesn't even work.
  3. Right click where? Can you please post a pic showing exactly where to click? TIA Cheers and Regards
  4. Specter only affects processors without FSB. Celeron M 520, 420 or 380 has FSB: https://ark.intel.com/es-es/search?q=celeron+m+1.60 https://www.techarp.com/guides/complete-meltdown-spectre-cpu-list/ InSpectre is bad. Better to use any of the following: https://github.com/ionescu007/SpecuCheck/releases or https://www.ashampoo.com/en/usd/pin/1304/security-software/spectre-meltdown-cpu-checker or the powershell script of Microsoft: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4073119/protect-against-speculative-execution-side-channel-vulnerabilities-in
  5. Kext: DIY KernelEx extensions

    The user who added Ren'Py did this in August 2012! So he tested older versions up to 2012. There is no newer editing of the text. https://www.renpy.org/release_list.html
  6. Today
  7. This topic should be listed in harkaz's post list https://www.msfn.org/board/topic/171814-posready-2009-updates-ported-to-windows-xp-sp3-enu/?tab=comments#comment-1077785 That's my 2c.
  8. Now there's a phrase I never though I'd hear! You are right - time permitting I will try to trace this myself. Thanks for the tips. If I'm honest, I've been lazy due to distractions with other projects and not enough time. Thanks Wonko - Atari800XL linked to the folder in an edit to his post. You have summed up the situation perfectly. The problem at the moment is that there's just so much stuff I want to test and not enough hours in the day.
  9. Important announcement for Dropbox users still running Windows Vista: As of January 2018, the Dropbox desktop client will no longer connect to the Dropbox service on PCs running Windows Vista. However, you can work around this by running the application in compatibility mode for Windows NT 4.0 (Service Pack 5), and the software should then connect to Dropbox just fine. Keep in mind, this was tested on the 41.4.80 version of the client, which was released on January 8, 2018. This workaround may be patched in newer versions, or newer versions of the client may not work in Vista at all, so I wouldn't count on this solution being a good long-term strategy. If/when this no longer works, you may simply use the web version of Dropbox (as long as you're using a supported web browser. View this post to see a list of web browsers as well as other software that still support Vista). Anyway, with that said, here's how to perform the workaround: 1. First of all, make sure all instances of Dropbox are closed. To do this, open Task Manager, click on the 'Processes' tab, and end 'Dropbox.exe': 2. Next, open Explorer and navigate to Program Files (x86 if on a 64-bit system)\Dropbox\Client and highlight Dropbox.exe: 3. Right-click on Dropbox, click Properties, and in the following dialogue, click the 'Compatibility' tab and choose Windows NT 4.0 (Service Pack 5): 4. After doing this, click OK and you may then close out the Windows Explorer window. Now, if you did everything correctly, Dropbox should connect just fine on Windows Vista, and you may use it normally!
  10. I'm having this really weird internet problem in Windows 95. This never happened before when I installed Windows 95 previously, but it is now. I tried everything, including uninstalling the Windows Desktop Update and installing Firefox, but none of it's working. Basically, every web page I visit, it says 'Detecting proxy settings...' for a bit, then gives me a 'The page cannot be displayed' error. The TCP/IP protocol has been installed, TLS 1.0 has been turned on, and I have 128-bit encryption installed, but it still won't work. I'm using a VMware Virtual Machine with an AMD PCNET Family ethernet adapter (which has been binded to TCP/IP), which is connected via NAT (my physical connection is fine), and I have Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2 installed with Java 1.3.1_20. Does anyone have any idea what's happening?
  11. POSReady 2009 updates ported to Windows XP SP3 ENU

    InSpectre ver 5. My situation: This 32-bit OS on Intel Processor: OS is Meltdown aware: No OS is Spectre aware: No OS Meltdown data: n/a OS Spectre data: n/a PCID/INVPCID instructions: No / No CPU microcode updated: Yes CPU is meltdown vulnerable: Yes This system's processor identification: Intel Celeron M processor / 1.60GHz P.S. Right click on the "ghosted " box symbol shown in Inspectre window. Then select "Tech details." It show you everything that "probe" was supposed to and much more.
  12. Latest Version of Software Running on XP

    Figured it was worth a shot to try patching the Java installer with XomPie. While it changed many things, no dice.
  13. Kext: DIY KernelEx extensions

    Stupid question: How do I get ren'py based games to work under KernelEx? The kernelex wiki says it should work fine, but I found the latest version of Ren'py that could have been used when that wiki page was "Steampunk Hamster", so I made an example game under that version. I can't get it to work. To clarify, the launcher stub in the games root directory does nothing when ran, even under "XP SP2" compatibility, and replacing the stub with the actual game executable from lib\windows-i686 just says an illegal operation has been performed. Here's a link to the example game I tried: http://b.reich.io/vmnyyz.zip
  14. Get WAIK Tools w/o downloading the huge ISO's

    I think Misty is just interested in testing stuff... I guess he likes Wimlib so much for his PE builder, that he also wonders what the most efficient way for adding packages would be, and if it could be done without using mounting/ unmounting. For me personally, mounting is not so bad, as long as I can remember not to open any explorer windows to check what's going on during unmounting :-)
  15. Batch conversion HTML to DOCX

    Sorry I used to convert SHTML to PDF, but I think it does DOC too.
  16. Many are in the "oldversion" folder on onedrive: https://onedrive.live.com/?id=53F5D45A736673!245 jaclaz
  17. Doesn't need a genius to get such a list of files. Sysinternals Process monitor and some patience should be enough Filtering Dism.exe and Dismhost.exe process usage of Createfile API. But I wonder why there is so much trouble with mounting process. Sure it's slower than on the good old Vista days, but with SSDs today it's quick enough. I'm using mount/unmount for years in my WinPE builder and also to integrate windows updates into install.wim. Never had any problem. Are you guys still use Anitvirus software?
  18. For some reasons long time ago (I dont remember) I uninstalled Windows Search 4 and disabled this update. My puppy search very well and find all what I search for. No problems with my two XP machines at this time...
  19. Silent Install StartIsBack++ v2.5.2

    Hi zerocoolroot, for silent install for current user just use /silent switch. To perform installation for all users use /elevated /silent George
  20. Firefox doesn't look the same after update to 1.5.7

    WebExtensions can not modify browsers appearance in Firefox 57+ The only way to modify ui is adding custom CSS code to userChrome.css and userContent.css files inside browsers profile folder. Keep in mind CSS code can not create entirely new items, buttons or toolbars. It only can modify already present ui items i modified my own UI by ARIS code you can find it here : https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx/releases/tag/1.5.7
  21. Thx, Good to know! Looking forward to testing!
  22. Yesterday
  23. Good to know. On one of the POSReady 2009 machines here, MU wouldn't proceed until I installed the hotfixes for OGL and MSO. This was a couple of days ago. The update for Powerpoint is only on the list because it supersedes an older update that was required on both POSReady machines here; I assumed the new update would consequently be required too (at least, looking from the perspective of a bare Compatibility Pack + SP3 install). I'll do some more extensive testing over the next couple of days. Thanks for the info on KB4011607. I updated the list. I don't have a "standard" XP SP3 machine anymore, so I'm only adding the latest cumulative IE8 update for safety's sake. I don't know if it's really required either.
  24. I noticed the same graphical oddity as apreese16, on multiple Windows installs. This is actually on XP x64 (using the 32-bit Basilisk). With other themes (Royale, Zune etc.), the window buttons remain oversized, but the blue colour of the address bar changes to conform with the theme. With the classic theme it looks totally normal.
  25. Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

    Thank you so much Stephen, that's great! I wasn't aware that there was an update 152, it was never offered by the updater, perhaps it was considered to be too minor an update on 151. I downloaded your file, and will probably now uninstall 151 and install 152 from scratch, and hope we get a working updater for 161 at some point.
  26. Whilst some versions might be better than others, I don't really like any of them as they all seem to give mixed result and random partially unmounted wims. I miss the old imagex.exe from Vista days - it was great fun playing around with it back then. That version may also have been buggy as hell too - I haven't used it for years. These days I'm more inclined (storage space permitting) to use wimlib to apply an entire boot.wim rather than running mount and unmounts operations. Depending on the size of boot.wim and the system hardware it doesn't feel like it takes much longer. Only time I need to do this is when applying a package. If only some genius could trace which minimum set of files need extracting from boot.wim so that DISM can be used to successfully apply a package to this smaller file set - without the need to fully apply the contents of boot.wim. And entirely removing the need to mount the image. Misty
  27. Get WAIK Tools w/o downloading the huge ISO's

    I recently wondered the same... :-) (it's a small world) I know you don't like the "buggy as hell" 16299, JFX uses wimagapi from 15063 in his great WinNTSetup (I use imagex.exe from that version as well for UUP direct apply). See here: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AnNmc1rU9VMAhGfaGtiigOc0BUlV
