  1. I don't use Windows 98 but Windows 95. Of course, I don't use it on my main computer (even though I have a few virtual machines that run Win95), but 1 or 2 years ago, I bought an old laptop, just for fun. And then I thought, why not putting it to use as it was meant to be? So, now I really use it as a computer that I can take anywhere to work on Word document or to view PDF files. And except for the battery life I think I'm not really worse off than other people who also use Word and pdfs, so it doesn't really make that much of a difference (but I don't have to struggle with ribbons in Word, which is a good thing) From time to time a get strange looks and some people have asked me if my laptop is some kind of new retro-looking device and OS. It's not, it's as old as it looks.
  2. Kext: DIY KernelEx extensions

    Why is it a recommended update? It seems to be the version from ME. Does it do anything better than older versions?

    It must have been a mistake by ~♥Aiko♥Chan♥~... Netsurf just doesn't work on Windows 98.
  4. BSOD 0E 0137:BFF9A3C0

    I've changed these settings to new values now. I don't know what they do, all I noticed was that if I set them to high the app won't start because it doesn't have enough RAM, but now it works and doesn't use more RAM then before. I can't say it's perfect because I've encountered a BSOD again but only once even though I opened and closed the app at least 20 times in a row. So I don't know what these settings do but they seem to mitigate the problem.
  5. BSOD 0E 0137:BFF9A3C0

    Oh and one more thing. In CFF Explorer I found something that's called "Native Win9x driver" I just applied this setting to my application and even though the BSOD did show up once, I was still able to get back to a (somewhat screwed) Windows and restart the computer which is already a bit better than having to reset the machine.

    Version 3.6 and I've tried it on a virtual machine so it should have SSE. According to cpu z it has SSE1,2,3,4.1,4.2 I could also try it on an old laptop but if it really needs SSE, it won't work anyway.
  7. BSOD 0E 0137:BFF9A3C0

    Sometimes, when a BSOD occurs and I hit enter several times I get to see an interesting picture. This time, it looks like a giant M..:) To me, it seems like this has something to do with either gdi or the graphics card (or both). I've already updated the driver but what's interesting is that these BSOD occur both on a virtual machine running Win95 and also on a Pentium 1 laptop so even though the graphics card and its driver differ a lot, the BSOD is still the same.
  8. BSOD 0E 0137:BFF9A3C0

    Yes, but even with the redirections you suggested, these random BSODs still occur. So, that can't be the solution. I'm afraid there just is no solution. It's just that this application wasn't made for Win95, that's the bottom line. But it was worth a try. P.S: I also opened the file in CFF explorer and kicked out msimg32.dll After all, Win95 doesn't come with msimg32.dll (which is related to gdi.exe) and the application uses only two functions so I just removed it to see if the BSODs vanish. They didn't. But again, it was worth a try.

    Netsurf doesn't work on Windows 98 (let alone Windows 95), neither with nor without KernelEx.
  10. BSOD 0E 0137:BFF9A3C0

    Ok, in Dependency Walker the addresses are shown in a different format so I couldn't find anything. But I did find something with another program, it's not exactly the same address but it's at least similar (BFF9A352) The function is in kernel32.dll and it's called IsBadStringPtrW
  11. BSOD 0E 0137:BFF9A3C0

    Update 3: Ok, now I tried it with an original unmodified file. The last problem I mentioned in Update 2 is sorted out now (it was probably due to my additional modifications) Now I need to open and close it for a while and see if the BSOD returns. Update 4: I got an error about low system resources and after that the ominous BSOD returned.
  12. BSOD 0E 0137:BFF9A3C0

    How do you know how I modified it? But you're right that I did not redirect GetLongPathnameA to GetShortPathNameA. I've done that now and then I renamed the function to LocalCompact in a Hex Editor. I couldn't rename TrackMouseEvent to PaintDesktop because there is no such function in Win95, so I left it as it is, I think originally I renamed it to GetKeyboardType or something, I don't really remember. The way I modified it before was that I renamed the function GetLongPathNameA to GetFullPathNameA. Could that cause problems? Update; Just tried the new application, the exact BSOD appeared when I closed it, so that doesn't seem to fix the problem. It think it seems to be related to gdi.exe Update 2: Now I am no longer able to open a pdf file. It only throws an empty error message when i try to open a pdf file from within Foxit Reader or an error message referring to the application's name when I double click on a pdf file. Maybe it's because I've renamed the GetLongFilePathA function to LocalCompact?
  13. BSOD 0E 0137:BFF9A3C0

    So is there a more effective way?
  14. BSOD 0E 0137:BFF9A3C0

    Which number should I be looking at? I can see "ordinal" and "entry point" numbers, none of which come even close to the number of the BSOD.
  15. BSOD 0E 0137:BFF9A3C0

    I'm getting this BSOD quite frequently when I try to either open or close Foxit Reader 2.1 on Windows 95. It's a modified version of Foxit Reader, normally it wouldn't run on Win95. Now, of course it's no big surprise that an application that wasn't even meant to run on an operating system might cause one or the other problem but nevertheless I thought it can't hurt to ask if anyone happens to know what could cause this specific BSOD error. I couldn't find anything really useful, it just seems to be a very general error with no real solution. At times, I also get other errors referring to gdi.exe but I can't say if the bsod is in any way related to the gdi problems.
