  1. Past hour
  2. Abbodi1406, nice to see you around... Let's not get into the image.exe timings anymore. I think the point is clear: Imagex.exe was almost "forgotten", but as Abbodi1406 found out, it can be useful for direct apply of UUP files, and fast as well, for some people (with old hardware/ disks?) even faster than the mighty WinNTSetup. If people are concerned with/ interested in this time difference, I'm sure they will try it themselves. That's it.
  3. Today
  4. Because you must be using a supermegaüberparanoid security setting, if I know you at all!!! Look: I use MSE v. 4.4.304.0 with up-to-date definitions, the default windows XPSP3 firewall, nothing but the default on the HOSTS file, a hardware firewall on the router and pi-hole for DNS and nothing else. None of my systems ever show the "Disable for now" nor care whether MSFN is offering mixed content or not. AND, the last time I got a system crippled by a virus was back in '88, by Jerusalem.
  5. I already have used SumatraPDF to read the Intel Manuals. I use my Unicows Wrappers rather than KernelEx.
  6. Windows 98SE acting up on laptop?

    I have downloaded as well as uploaded SP3 to test the integrity of the pack which is 119 mb. No issues on my end.
  7. Windows 98SE acting up on laptop?

    Have you tried downloading larger files ~100mb? The wireless seems to time out after a while.
  8. Hi abbodi1406, The log is placed in the Windows folder of the chosen installation drive. Seems a wim index without <arch> in the xml is interpreted as x64. Will fix this.
  9. Howdy @Atari800XL imagex time is the one reported as elapsed it after finish applying? for me i used echo %time% before and after imagexin a script, the difference was ~ 3:40, while imagex reported 3:00 still, manual observation of WinNTSetup applying gives ~ 4:20 BTW, where do i find WinNTSetup log? and it detects 1st index of UUP as 64bit https://i.imgur.com/yNRfOpq.png
  10. It seems like your case has nothing to do with the specific failure(s) discussed in this thread, You are seemingly the unlucky owner of one of the worst hard disks of all times : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ST3000DM001 reportedly those drives simply fail, after some time, in the highest percentages ever recorded. These failures can - in some cases only - be repaired by professionals, no DIY available, jaclaz
  11. mixit - thanks for info. Q - on the thread for XP POS, there are recent links for updating the 2007 Compatibility Pack for Office 2003 on our XP machines. Should I also run those on my wife's Win 7 64-bit machine on which we still have Office 2003 with the Compatibility Pack?
  12. den and mixit - thanks for your patience, After fussing a bit with my Firefox, I am able to see Mixit's insert link only after both (a) importing the certificate for msfn.org and (b) clicking on the lock icon in the address bar, seeing that this page is partially not secure, clicking on the > and hitting "Disable for now". Unfortunately, that last option (the button for "Disable for now") is not available on every page. On this XP machine, I have Firefix ESR 52.5.0 (32-bit). Running FF with Add-ons Disabled didn't help. Only the steps above helped. The normal icons for moving to other pages still don't work unless I right-click and hit Open in New Tab. Why so tough?
  13. @schwups I confirm the issue. The text is visible in only-text mode, but the rest is unusable. The blue background doesn't appear with IE6(!) and Firefox 2/3, so the board is readable, but, anyway, practically unusable for the rest as for Opera.
  14. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    Can you check it with dependency Walker?
  15. Root Certificates and Revoked Certificates for Windows XP

    @sdfox7 Thanks for the hint, I changed the links to rvkroots.exe and rootsupd.exe.
  16. Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

    A new Shockwave version was released on or around 15 November 2017. Shockwave Player ...
  17. Using that embedded url "trick" with videos marked no-embed has always produced that result
  18. thank you! you guys!
  19. Last Versions of Software for Windows 98SE

    Sumatra PDF 3.1.2 or 2.2 (classic interface) will read %PDF-1.7 and also many ebook formats. Latest Kernelex required.
  20. @heinoganda The link in the first post of this thread (http://www.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/rootsupd.exe) no longer works. I found the one available on XP's last official day of support, April 8, 2014: https://web.archive.org/web/20140408215209/http://www.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/rootsupd.exe
  21. @Nomen @winxpi I tried the "www.youtube.com/v/(video-id)" trick. I tested with Pale Moon 3.6.32 on Windows 2000, and a Taylor Swift video on YouTube's page, and was greeted with the following:
  22. Running Windows 98 in 2017...

    @Wunderbar98 There are printers available on eBay, still brand new, that are compatible with Windows 98. Such as this all in one HP PSC 1410: https://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-PSC-1410-All-In-One-Color-InkJet-Printer-18PPM-Black-Q7290A/191870798687?epid=1319717075&hash=item2cac640b5f:g:fK0AAOSwT6pV6ae5 I did a search for "printer windows 98": https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=printer+windows+98
  23. Latest DivX codec for Windows 95C

    @assenort @PROBLEMCHYLD According to this archived link, 5.0.5 "requires minimum Windows 98", but @assenort got it working on Windows 95 C. You could probably try 5.1 to see if that works, since the requirements are the same. It's a minor point release and may still work. I'm not at a Win95 C machine ATM to test). The page: https://web.archive.org/web/20031002033025/http://www.divx.com:80/divx/ The free download link for the Standard DivX 5.1 Codec: https://web.archive.org/web/20031002033025/http://download.divx.com/divx/DivX51Bundle.exe Minimum System Requirements: https://web.archive.org/web/20031002004822/http://www.divx.com:80/divx/system_requirements.php
  24. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    I tested Dooble 2.1 released 11/13/2017, does not run. This is likely due to the fact that is based on Qt 5.9, and last XP version was Qt 5.6. https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/supported-platforms-and-configurations.html Maybe someone here knows how to run it? Otherwise, Dooble 1.56 is likely the last supported/working version for XP. https://sourceforge.net/projects/dooble/files/
  25. Windows 98SE acting up on laptop?

    I have not tested the drivers on Win9x/ME. It works fine on my old dell latitude C600 with Windows 98 SE /SP3/98SE2ME.
  26. Windows 98SE acting up on laptop?

    PROBLEMCHYLD, please reply when you get the chance. When using your broadcom driver to download anything on Windows 9x the card often times out or breaks while downloading, thus making larger file uploads/downloads impossible.
  27. It's been over six months since I've posted in this thread, but I wanted to demonstrate that the current versions of Adobe Flash Player 27 (27 0 0 187) still work on Windows 2000. I run Win2K on my T23 with SP4, the SP4 rollup, and UURollup. The browsers tested are Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2, Firefox ESR Portable 45.8.0, and Chromium 34.0.1847 (the last for SSE/non-SSE2 processors). The installers can be downloaded from here (Firefox and Chromium), and here (Internet Explorer ActiveX)
