    Latest Version of Software Running on XP

    I don't bother with Adobe / Acrobat Reader anymore being that Chrome and Firefox have built in capability- they also seem faster at loading than Reader. Full installers of Firefox versions from the original 0.8 to the current Firefox 50 can be downloaded from the FTP repository: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ (Select the version number, then navigate to the /win32 or /win64 directory (I don't know if the /win64 versions are compatible with XP 64-bit) For legacy versions of Flash Player, you can always download them from Adobe's Archived Flash Player page, all the way back to version 2.0 from 1996: (for versions from 2010 to 2016, the second heading, "Flash Player archives"; for versions from 1996-2016, the last heading, "Older archives"): https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html Full Google Earth installers are on this page: https://support.google.com/earth/answer/168344?hl=en Google Earth 7.1.7.2606 fixed compatibility problems with Windows XP, according to this link: https://support.google.com/earth/answer/40901?hl=en Direct full installer for 7.1 is on that page: https://dl.google.com/earth/client/GE7/release_7_1_7/googleearth-win-bundle-7.1.7.2602.exe https://dl.google.com/earth/client/GE7/release_7_1_7/googleearth-win-bundle-7.1.7.2606.exe Direct full installer for 6.2 is on that page: https://dl.google.com/earth/client/GE6/release_6_2_2/googleearth-win-bundle-6.2.2.6613.exe The Java Archive page is here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/archive-139210.html The Opera archive page offers versions back to 3.21 (2002) and is available here: http://arc.opera.com/pub/opera/win/ I usually use WinRar for many files, and the current 5.40 version runs fine on XP: http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm Direct download 32 bit is http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar540.exe HOPE THIS HELPS!

    Windows XP is still king

    Any system can be "secure" if the user is reasonably proactive with their activities online as it relates to security. Example: if I was using risky behavior online I'm sure I could infect a Windows 7 or Windows 10 system in under 10 minutes. I have been taking apart computer systems since I was a teenager, and feel legacy Windows such as Windows 2000 and XP can be used securely if you don't visit rogue websites, etc. Don't use Internet Explorer! Use a firewall! While these systems no longer receive updates, I don't believe they are really at that much greater risk than newer Windows systems. First, 2000/XP systems are a small target and not worth wasting time attacking. Second, Windows 7 and 10 are constantly receiving updates, which means they just as insecure as XP, it's just that someone has already found the vulnerability and Microsoft has chosen to fix the vulnerability. I personally don't believe that any new versions of Windows are more secure than the last; it's just that Microsoft has decided to patch the newer ones. When Windows 2000 was launched, it was the "most secure version of Windows". It ended being the victim of many attacks during its 10-year lifetime, particularly the Blaster, Sasser and Sobig worms from 2003-2004. XP was released, it was the same mantra, being more secure than Windows 2000, but it too fell victim to the same worms that plagued 2000. Anti-Spyware 2011 and the Alureon Trojan affected Vista and 7. No system is impenetrable. Once Windows 10 has been around for sometime, we will begin seeing the vulnerabilities of that system. These days, automated computer programs can crack any system once enough algorithms and commands are processed. Certainly, if you can make it, you can break it!

    Hello guys, sorry my delay...Well, my short goal is get compatibility of newer applications on XP/2003. And long goal is get all ecosystem of NT 6.x on XP/2003, including initial purpose, interface. Now, i'm making the oficial website project, organizing the development (with repositiories on GitHub, Deveo SVN and managing with HostedRedmine), will create a page on facebook and topic here. All things usable made until now will be avaliable on site, including iso of legacy shorthorn builds. And, i will start development of Kernel extension, to run drivers like xheci for usb 3.0 support.

    Browsers Still Working with WinXP in 2017

    I totally understand and agree with what you're saying. However, the reality is that software developers will always continue to deprecate old systems in favor of new ones. The only realistic way to keep these old systems relevant is to accept that new software will not be released indefinitely, and compromises and hacks have to be made. Even the 'mighty' Windows 10 will be obsolete someday. I also happen to believe that security updates and patches can give people a false sense of security. I have run many different unsupported configurations over the years as a hobby without getting infected. If anything, security updates and virus programs may actually encourage reckless/risky behavior online. This is similar to people that think they are invincible because they have 4WD (which I do, by the way). I also think that Microsoft and others will always be playing whack-a-mole with security, because the updates are only created after the fact a security issue has been breached, which means someone has already discovered it. For these reasons, running the latest and greatest software on these systems is irrelevant for me. The trade-off of being able to enjoy obsolete software is that compromises and workarounds have to be made in order to continue using it.

    Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.5.1

    I finally found the reason when this happens. It is caused by wrong user privileges on DWMGlass.dll file. So if you come across this problem, then add read access for "Users" group on this file.

  9. Current Steam (like most PE applications of today's era) relies on many, many, many DLL files, which are simply impossible to run under 98SE no matter how much you KernelEx. Running modern apps, would require rewriting the whole OS, most notably, the NTKERN.VXD from SCRATCH! Unless you meet with the people who actually developed the 98SE...which is probably impossible too.

    Actually they are over-oversimplified, and not only here. It simply makes no sense saying that system x is more secure than system y, because you never have the counter evidence, system x may be resistant to attack #1 (while system y is not) and system y may be resistant to attack #2 (while system x is not) and both may be non resistant to attack #3. jaclaz

    Windows 7 on a Kaby Lake laptop

    Remember all the doom and gloom announced by tech sites all over, that Kaby Lake processors would be incompatible with Windows 7 and 8.1? http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/windows-7-wont-work-intels-current-next-gen-cpus/ http://www.pcworld.com/article/3112663/software/microsoft-made-em-do-it-the-latest-kaby-lake-zen-chips-will-support-only-windows-10.html Well... I managed to get my HP laptop with an Intel Core i7 7500U and Intel HD 620 GPU working, without a single warning symbol on Device Manager. It was a bit tricky though... I had to install the Kernel Mode Driver Framework and User Kernel Mode Driver Framework v1.1 updates, along with a pretty obscure hotfix released by Microsoft, to make Windows 7 support TPM 2.0. http://download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/software/updt/2012/11/windows6.1-kb2685811-x64_191e09df632b70fd4f4b27d4cb9227f7c5a1c98c.msu http://download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/software/updt/2012/11/windows6.1-kb2685813-x64_22a969bada171678b0936bb320e6a7778e8adc07.msu https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2920188/update-to-add-support-for-tpm-2.0-in-windows-7-and-windows-server-2008-r2 There was no USB support after the fresh install, so I had to put the essential USB 3.0 drivers on a CD-RW I had laying around. Aside from that, Intel also really doesn't want you to install Windows 7 on their new platform... The GPU drivers were compatible with 7, but the HW IDs for the new iGPUs were exclusive to the Windows 10 part of the file. All I had to do was copy paste them to the 7/8.1 section, and it installed without any problem. Also, the Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework drivers were only available for 10... Had to search the HW IDs on google to find older compatible versions. Now I should finish setting up the system, and see if I can get updates. Will report back

    Launch of new Wi-Fi USB devices on 9x

    Hello! I many times try run my usb wifi dongle in 9x, and now, after four years owning this device, i can say - it work! u can look on my screenshots: in this post i want say, how u can do it for our devices... post will periodically updating. ===== what need having for experiments: WDMEX from rloew. i am sorrry, but w/o this u need yourself implement one stupid function - NdisInitializeString. W/o this function driver RT2870.SYS (and many other drivers for 2k/xp) is just not starting - we see error code 2 or 10 in DM. So i assume, that u have implementation of NdisInitializeString. if so, can continue. one NdisInitializeString is not enuogh. driver req some other imports, which i can close old good WDMSTUB. after this, i check in debugger, that driver loaded w/o errors, and try using it with help Odyssey, but w/o good results. adapter was present in DM, but not present in Network Properties. then i try ME, and immediately get results! i connect to my router and can out in Internet. but on 98 it not work. Sweetlow say me, that support NDIS5 in 9x is poor, and recommend use NDIS3. i try, and all success. here i attach my work inf file for Ralink driver version 3.01.08.0000 date 27.Dec.2010. this driver work with Odyssey 4.52 and WPA2 AES. Most new version 5.01.25.0 from official site can not connect... this inf req UR work. U MUST manually add into VID/PID for our device! DWA140.INF

    Hello everybody, i'm Samuka, from betaarchive. I'm male, apropos, and i live on Brazil. Well, my initial project was based on transplant longhorn/vista shell files to get apparence. But, the project was growing. Now, have a subproject called one-core-api, to get windows vista+ compatibility, because now xp and 2003 are out of support. I will release official project site on January, with download links. Now we have source code on git hub, and management project on redmine. I will create a extension for kernel too, and x64 will be supported. Sorry for delay, but, I'm working on this project (windows shorthorn) about 8 years, because is very, very,very complex. Well, drivers are a area "supported" on project, and i have intention to run wddm drivers on xp. I will create a topic on msfn too. Only wait end my vocations. Thanks

    What's Your Anticipation Level?

    Level 0. W T F is this shiat and why should I infect my PC with such a malicious software? I would rather quit computers than use such an insulting, disgusting system. Can I fire all the dimwitted "engineers" and program managers who screwed up Windows so badly? There will be hell to pay for screwing customers so badly and so continuously for so long. This POS is full of meaningless, stupid, insulting, rude, screwy, arbitrary, telemetry-driven changes all decided by the mothership which you are just supposed to only consume and not complain? All the time, money and resources you poured for years into setting up a personalized, powerful computer system that works FOR you is now wasted? No way in hell. I am a user interface purist and I cannot stand any level of regression in the GUI. Unfortunately, this POS called Windows 10 has completely destroyed all the good parts of the UI that used to work FOR me in this once-powerful operating system. And a lot of the bird brained people do not seem to find any fatal flaws in this wretched OS.

    Launch of new Wi-Fi USB devices on 9x

    No, USB. Rosewill RNX-G1LX Interesting... I thought I might have just figured this out, but if yours is working faster then it throws my new theory out. (more below) Good! Now for a theory about the speed issues: What if all 9x-compatible USB WiFi devices (and their drivers) are assuming that Windows 9x only supports USB 1.0/1.1? Since Microsoft offered no official USB2 support, many manufacturers assume that no USB2 support exists for 9x. (For example noted in this manual for a 9x-compatible TP-Link USB adapter.) Now, to extrapolate further: USB1 speed of 1.5Mbits/sec = 192KBytes/sec. Assume a "safe" limit of 150KBytes/sec when writing a driver for USB1 bus speed? Of course this is all just speculation. But it made sense until you said that you were getting 250KBytes/sec.

    Win 98se compatible AM3 motherboard?

    The most easy to handle boards are with the 970A chipset - i have two of those running. But it's not only the chipset, the layout is as important also - you need two PS/2-ports for ease of use, a PCI-slot for audio add-in, a PCIe-1x for LAN, and a compatible PCIe-GPU. I use an SSD on port 5, and a DVD on port 6, in compatibility-mode (which works very well). It works with any other modern OS on port 1-4 in SATA-mode (tried with XP, W7, W10, Ubuntu 64-bit LTS, and SteamOS (! only with a second, modern GPU !). If you want to use the SATA-ports in W98SE in true SATA-mode, you'll need RLoews SATA-patch - can't say if this is better, as i don't own that patch, but many say it is great. For GPU i recommend an ATI Radeon x800 PCIe 256MB. If you want to use an NVidia-GPU, you absolutely need corresponding RLoew NVidia-GPU-driver-patch ($20,--) - then, i recommend the 7600GT PCIe 256MB, or the 7900 GTX PCIe 512MB. For Audio i recommend the SB Audigy PCI or SB Audigy 2 PCI - used via ebay for about $5 to $8. Only the original old ones, actually, not any "XE"-variant or whatsoever. For LAN i recommend any PCIe-1x Gigabit card with the RTL 8111B chipset. Should be available brand-new.

If I can recreate the modified package using MSVC6, then it should be easy to update it with three more 2007 patches listed at http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.openssl.org/news/*.

    It doesn't really matter. @Dibya You clearly don't know what you're talking about. Just having a consumer grade router between your PC and the internet doesn't mean you have a hardware firewall, because in these devices all network traffic goes down the kernel path which is purely software. Also, running the official firmware is even more of a privacy concern as it rarely gets updated, leaving vulnerabilities open. Please see various CVE's that surfaced after D-Link released the firmware for your devices: https://cve.mitre.org/data/downloads/allitems.html. A hardware firewall on the other hand is a separate device that you hook up between your PC and the router that connects you to the internet.

    Janus x64/Windows 2000 x64

    Well, not really. It was exactly overlapping the development of Windows 2000 and XP, the full specification was released in August 2000, but was pre-announced (to the public) in October 1999. Windows 2000 was released end of 1999/beginning of 2000. Windows XP was released October 2001. (and is/was IMHO nothing but a renamed Windows 2000 with a few bells and whistles attached to it). The Windows XP Professional x64 Edition came much later (and is/was definitely nothing but a renamed Server 2003 with a few bells and whistles attached to it). BUT in the meantime (end of 2001/beginning of 2002) there was a Windows XP 64 bit Edition (which was for Itanium, i.e. IA64), most probably that one is the Windows 2000 "Janus" 64 but with some bells and whistles attached). https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb457053.aspx What we don't know is if the good MS guys completely ignored the 1999/2000 AMD news or if they made a parallel "Janus" for x64, that later became the Server 2003 x64 and the Windows XP Professional x64 Edition. jaclaz

This will show all available options.. install_wim_tweak.exe /p <MountPath> This will unhide all the packages in the selected image install_wim_tweak.exe /o This will unhide all the packages on the currently installed OS install_wim_tweak.exe /p <MountPath> /l This will list all the packages available in the selected image and write them to a text file in the same directory. install_wim_tweak.exe /o /l This will list all the packages available on the installed OS and write them to a text file in the same directory. install_wim_tweaks.exe /p <MountPath> /c Microsoft-Windows-......... This will just inhide the selected component from the selected image, can also be used with /o. If you add /r at the end it will remove the package. Changes made from the original version by wnuku */h will restore them to default (must use without /h first) */n will not create backups (faster) */d will not delete owners keys. */m is no longer needed, will do the task by default */l will output a list of all packages to a text file. */o will use currently installed image. *fixed a bug where it did not work if there was a space in the mountpath. */c <PackageName> will un-hide specific package * using /r with /c will remove the package *Win32Security.dll file is no longer needed *Added new colours, errors are displayed in Red *Fixed bug crashing at end of running *Fixed bug where it cannot unmount registry if something fails *Added specific component selection *Fixed some other bugs *Added an appropriate small icon for the app Also normally you will have to put the specific component name i.e. "/c Microsoft-Hyper-V-Common-Drivers-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~6.1.7601.17514" but if for example you put "/c Microsoft-Hyper-V-Common-Drivers-Package" it will show all packages starting with that. F.A.Q If you have any questions let me know...

    Latest Version of Software Running on XP

    The overall list will be 95% the same as the one for Windows Vista. There are only a small number of significant applications which still support Vista but don't support XP, such as Microsoft Security Essentials and Pale Moon. OTOH, there are actually some applications which support XP but don't officially support Vista, such as Adobe Reader XI: https://helpx.adobe.com/reader/kb/system-requirements-adobe-reader.html

    Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    Those are some great findings! This means Windows 7 has 1 year and 9 months of extra support, and 8.1 has 6 months of extra support. Maybe until then M$ realizes the mistake Windows 10 was, and builds another great Windows, based on the Windows 8.1 code base (just remove the metro portion, introduce a few tweaks to the user experience, like a better Start Menu than 7's, and build the Win32 API further). Guess I'll have 2 more repositories to maintain in the future

  50. I have XP SP3 on an 3770K i7 (Ivy Bridge) on a Z68 based motherboard (Asus P8Z68-V LX): it works perfectly and it's blazing fast. All drivers are official and easily findable, including the Intel Graphics, for chipsets up to and including the Z68 and processors up to and including the Ivy Bridge. So you should really have no problem at all with your chosen processor. But do avoid Panther Point chipsets (B75-Z77) based boards, because that's where driver availability problems begin. However, most intersting boards do not have IDE anymore, but you might very well add any one of them a trusty Promise Ultra133 add-on card you may get over on eBay quite cheap, and that'd give you the ability to add up to 4 IDE HDDs.
