  4. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4 / 3.8.8 BETA1

    Thanks, I will try soon. But just wondering: what command line was I supposed to use? I did try some different combinations of the ref parameter, but didn't succeed. Thanks for the updates!
  5. Today
  6. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    I think I should inform to KingsMan. He will inform to feoder
  7. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    since official build does not have this bug I think this bug only happens due to modification.
  8. I install aeroglass, and then I also downloaded the aeroglass gui to mess around with the settings (Which I basically cranked transparency up to around 2 to make everything pretty transparent). That's it. I don't do anything fancy.. I basicallly run it stock.
  9. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    I think it's a bug of palemoon any one confirm? I am on phone now. I will check it tomorrow.
  10. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    Notice that this build (and also my build) of 27.4.2 hitting a javascript(ckeditor) bug of msfn. https://github.com/Feodor2/Mypal/issues/2
  11. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    I will just compile and see once as qupzilla works if you slightly adjust while compiling with vs2013. Of coarse you need to use win8.1sdk but that worked . I wonder why microsoft stop support in 8.1sdk for xp. Their is no problem to run some experiment let see what happens. Ff55 in test drive. It is slightly unstable I need to fix at any cost.
  12. Windows 10 Regressions

    Thankfully we have SysInternals AutoRuns to explore and manage all the built-in scheduled/malware tasks.
  13. There is a lot of code changes in the beta. Next one will have a change log. Well UUP should work now. You can add a UUP.txt in the same folder as the esd files than you don't need to use cmdline.
  14. Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.4.6

    I'm also running Aero Glass on Win 8.1. Ribbon-enabled windows, such as Explorer and WordPad, use an entirely different method to paint the title bar, and thus are not handled by the normal DWMGlass.dll. Big Muscle released some additional components that work with Aero Glass and allow you to resurrect the glow, but there are some downsides. This is from my all too frail memory, but I believe UxThemeSignatureBypass64.dll and UxThemeSignatureBypass32.dll circa March 8, 2015, invoked via the AppInit_DLLs key will color the titles of ribbon-enabled windows. Here's what I see (note that my text is set to be white and the "glow" backing in my theme atlas is actually dark): As you can see in the Beyond Compare Options dialog at the upper-right, it essentially causes any text that uses the same API calls the ribbon-enabled windows use to be painted with the "glow" backing. It's a minor inconvenience I can live with to have the more integrated title bars. It's been a long time since I set this up, but I see I left myself an "InstallSignatureBypass.reg" file... This is what's in it: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows] "AppInit_DLLs"="C:\\AeroGlass\\UxThemeSignatureBypass64.dll" "LoadAppInit_DLLs"=dword:00000001 "RequireSignedAppInit_DLLs"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows] "AppInit_DLLs"="C:\\AeroGlass\\UxThemeSignatureBypass32.dll" "LoadAppInit_DLLs"=dword:00000001 "RequireSignedAppInit_DLLs"=dword:00000000 Note also that I stayed with Aero Glass 1.4.5, not the latest, as I saw some visual glitches with 1.4.6. The above is 100% stable for me. I get long uptimes between Windows updates that mandate reboots. -Noel
  15. Windows 10 Regressions

    You can stop unattended Windows Update by stopping and disabling the Windows Update service. There are also some scheduled tasks that seek to re-enable it, and those tasks get re-enabled by an actual Windows Update, so you have to be vigilant. I run a nightly script that logs half a megabyte of data showing the system state so that I can compare with prior runs and see if anything has been changed. In my case I also reconfigure my (3rd party) firewall so that the system can't possibly reach the update servers unless I reconfigure it to do so. It's a good thing I do that because I caught an application install (TurboTax of all things) once re-enabling and starting Windows Update even though I had it disabled. But rest assured it's possible to stop it from doing what it wants. You're still in control, though you have to get geeky to get there and stay there. -Noel
  16. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    I wonder if QTWebEngine will work on NT5
  17. Approximately day or two of reading. Then re-read it, because what you'd understood you've already forgotten, and you hadn't got it all during the first read. Different option then dencorso's way is to Turn on update search and leave PC waiting during the weekend to let Windows Update find the updates. If you don't want to Wait ~24 hours for the PC to find the freakin' updates, you need at least Office and Compatibility Pack updates downloaded manually and installed. Then other updates (IE8, Windows) are going smoothly within less then hour. Sorry, Windows XP is off the way and MS is not about to fix it.
  18. Portabat (Portable Batch Environment)

    @jaclaz I have add cwd exception (not from ini file though) see note at first post
  19. Seaching for Intel 218V XP 32bit driver

    i Just tested with original - second board same error.
  20. Way to go! That's how it's done!
  21. Got it just after reading the first 20 pages, I skipped to the end, it was late.. I will update when tried all again
  22. WinNTSetup v3.8.7.4 / 3.8.8 BETA1

    I tried some stuff with the new beta, but couldn't figure out if you've changed anything pertaining to UUP/ ref/ ESD stuff? What's new in the beta?
  23. Yeah. Read this thead. There are working links for all you need already collected here. You said the last time the machine did update was February 2017, right? So go back in the thread up to that time and start reading from there. Usually, all the links you need are collected in a post by Bersaglio. Then again, you'd actually know that already had you tried this exercise. The reason threads are not Twitter is that they do preserve the memory of what happened. So make good use of that.
  24. I could separate the Windows only Partition support from the rest of the Terabyte Patches to make a less expensive product, but I never saw any reason to do so. The main reason I designed these Partitions is to handle Partitions above the 2TiB limit. A lot of BIOSes do not support them. The only other case I know of is a BIOS that cannot handle more than 137GB, 8GB or one of the other old limitations.
  25. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qtwebengine-webengine-quicknanobrowser-example.html I have downloaded and installed Qt 5.9 on my build environment (8.1x64 on my same xp pc just for running vs 2013 ) I am trying to build my own browser namely dragonzilla . I wish to make it very simple,fast,lightweight and sse compatible.
  26. [SOLVED (AS IS)] Windows 95 issues with GRUB4DOS

    @Rloew The Grub4dos hide command does change the partition ID's in the partition table in the MBR (i.e. adds 0x10 to the "normal" partition ID's), but of course it does so to the actual volumes slots, i.e. primaries and to the various EMBR's, not to the extended partition in itself, so it is possible that this triggers *something*. @ppgrainbow The duplicate ghost drives come from *something* else, not from merely hiding them, as said grub4dos hides them in the "normal" way. Maybe the issue here? (or something loosely related to it). Anyway, this has become (actually it was since the start, but I failed to recognize it at first sight, I am getting older, beside grumpier) clearly a S.E.P. Have fun. jaclaz
  27. I forgot my Windows 7 password, how to reset?

    It depends on HOW (exactly) you did WHAT. Choose one (and one only) given link/tutorial and follow it EXACTLY. If it still doesn't work, post again DETAILing which one you chose to follow and the EXACT behaviour it has, AND the hardware you are using it on. jaclaz
