  1. Thanks a LOT guys for the quick & efficient reply "...Let us hope then that BlackWingCat will do something about this issue..." I'm agree with you, Tom. Thanks again and cheers hckrnt
  2. Thanks, Tom I'm using various versions of FF portable edition (12, 36, 38, 40, 43, 45 and 48) 'cause it's a much more simple and efficient way to test if FF's addons are still working on new FF versions To be completely honest..now that you said it... yes, when opening Updates page freezes for only few seconds ( i thought it was due to too opened tabs: 46 !!! ) But... nope 'cause i've tried to open it with only 2 or 3 tabs already open and the page is still freezing a bit... I've installed FF 5.1 alpha portable and for the first time on w2k usp52 ext. kern. it refuses to start the ERROR is: firefox.exe - Application Error Couldn't load XPCOM. The instruction at "0x00004000" referenced memory at "0x00004000". The memory could not be "read". Click on OK to terminate the program i've tried to start the exe with Application Compatibility Launcher but nothing change Please someone can confirme that is a general problem and not a peculiarity of my W2K + USP52 + EXT KRN installation THANKS a lot P.D. Obviously FF 5.1a is running smoothely on W7-U-SP1
  3. Hi Tomasz, Using FF48 on w2k your site is loading super-fast !!!!! Thanks Tomasz & Cheers...
  4. Hi Tomas, Your new site work wonderfully, i've downloaded HFSLIP2000-FullPack.7z from dropbox: everything fine! As always, thanks a lot for your invalueble efforts to keep W2K alive... Cheers... P.S. Take care of yourself, please...
  5. Hi, Tomasz is good to see you again... i'm perfectly agree with what Tommy Honey said: And i'd like to add that i'm still using win2000 EXT KRN O.S. on my old laptop acer aspire 4320 in dual boot with win7U... and even now prefering, for a good number of reasons, the feel of freedom & speedness that the old NT5 is giving to me cheers to the NT5 people
  6. ....Speaking of true color icons is not so far from the concept of pictures videos & audios (mp3, etc.) thumbnail preview in explorer... So, maybe W2K-USP52-EXT KRN users may be interested in checking Media Preview, media file thumbnailing enhancer for Windows 32 & 64 bit Next To The MetalTo develop any application, an IT crew has a large choice of technology sets, each one fitted for their own particular purposes. Media Preview being a shell extension directly connected to the low layers of Windows, it could easily crash your system if we didn't use the right tools and followed bad design principles. Here's some technical explanations of how we choose to do it. No Java , no .Net Both the Java and .Net platforms took the lead for high-level and server-side applications, and are more and more suited for general purposes. However, a nasty flaw in their design still prevent them to be used for shell extensions like Media Preview, as it can lead to some serious system unstabilities. Both platforms are designed to run on top of a virtual machine, which conveniently hides some system management complexities to programmers. Those virtual machines have also evolved over time to become more efficient and include more functionalities, but their different versions came with binary incompatibilities. Most of the times, this issue can be resolved by keeping several versions of the virtual machine. But, as only one version can be loaded in a process at any given time, this solution cannot work for shell extensions: if an application runs on a specific version of the virtual machine and calls a shell extension that needs to load another version in the same process, this will simply result in a crash. For Media Preview, this would typically happen when an application opens a file open dialog, which in turn asks for thumbnail display. .Net 4.x actually allows to load an earlier version side-by-side in the same process. But the more likely converse situation where an earlier version tries to load 4.x still doesn't work. Moreover, by calling a dependent shell extension, every application would henceforth have to load a full-blown virtual machine at least to generate thumbnails, even if they originally didn't need it. So, those platforms definitively aren't a good fit here. No DirectShow It would seem natural to directly use your system playback capabilitites to read media files and extract thumbnails. In Windows, this is done through DirectShow, a flexible rendering pipeline that can easily get broken when badly configured. Third-party media thumbnail extractors usually require to be installed along related media solutions to ensure that everything works as expected, reconfiguring your DirectShow setup and probably breaking some playback capabilities along the way. As thumbnail extractor and media player needs aren't the same, separating the extractor engine from the playback engine is actually a better idea. More importantly, DirectShow is gradually being phased out by Media Foundation. That's why Media Preview doesn't use DirectShow at all but uses its own dedicated engine. C++ Only As a shell extension is really close to the core of your system, the fewer layers we put between the extension and the shell, the better the extension will perform. So after forgetting about adding a Java or .Net layer, and getting rid of the DirectShow layer, we searched for a programming tool that proved itself to be quite a fit for structured low-level development: C++ became our final choice. Entirely free of any intermediate layer, Media Preview is just next to the metal, and performs using optimized low-level operations by avoiding duplicated resources and freeing them as soon as possible. You'll hardly find anything else more suited to your thumbnailing needs.

I've Downloaded the daily release of UURollup-v11 directly from google drive and i've mirrored the windows 2000 directory entirely (only for ENU-ESN-ITA LANG, obviously) on my multi terabyte disk!!! i dont trust the cloud hosted drives that much cheers hckrnt
  14. @Tomasz86 No problem at all ! I've downloaded HFSLIP_ia.7z from gDrive and inside i've found MDAC281-KB927779-v2-x86-ENU.exe Don't worry, it was about the two unofficial kernels (WB kernel and BWC kernel) included in it... Me too, i'm using W2Kpro only in my spare time... Thanks for your kind & fast reply, cheer... hackeronte
  15. Hi, Master Tomasz First of All thanks for your inappreciable, considerable, perceptible, appraisable, invaluable and remarkable work on Google Drive... Personally i think Legacy is an important issue, in consideration of the memory of the past's master (gurgelmeyer among others) and especially for future generations as well... After a little bit of rethoric back to Earth... I'm trying to download MDAC281-KB927779-v2-x86-ENU.exe (English) from your page: http://windows2000.tk/updates/index.html#kb927779_mdac28sp1-v2 of Updates lists for For HFSLIP and...am i wrong or some links are still pointing to Dropbox ? Yeah, Master T86, this is the first time ( since 2007! !) That i'm completely re-installing the glorious windows 2000 Pro... Well, to be honest, i've bought the fisrt edition of W2Kpro in the golden days of 2000 [ my first OS was MSDOS 5! ] So i'm detemined to create Booooootable DVD containing official & UNofficial updates hotfixes & paraphernalias for ENU-ITA-ESN versions of W2KPRO... Furthermore i'm using M$ virtual Pc 2004 (as virtual machine, of course hosted on W2Kpro) 'cause i'm an addict to shell extension ! (menus context, shell namespace, properties pages, thumbnails views & listview controls of explorer and so on... i think the best book i've ever read about is the old but unsurpassed Visual C++ Windows Shell Programming by Dino Esposito!) And i'd like to know in advance which'll crashed explorer...and which NOT installing on the ENU flavor of W2K your UURollup... Thanks in advance for your kind reply and the best luck for your final project USP52 hackeronte P.S. Post Scriptum If I may be of any Help for USP52, now or in the future, don't hesitate to ask...
