  1. You obviously won't get a refund since Firefox is free and open source software!
  2. If you're using Windows 98 or Windows Millenium, I'd go with either Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2 or Internet Explorer 6. Windows 98 includes Active Desktop. Installing Internet Explorer 4.0 SP2 first on Windows 95 or Windows NT 4.0 SP6 is necessary in order to use DOSBox as it requires the Active Desktop component.
  3. If I can't look on SourceForge, I'll look elsewhere to see which SVN revision of DOSBox 0.74 is the last to work on Windows 95. If I do, I'll let you know. I'll run some test of older versions of DOSBox on a Windows 95 VM without Active Desktop to see if it works or not. Update: I checked the SVN revisions of DOSBox 0.74 and r4008 will not load on Windows 95, because I suspect that developers switched compilers to MSVC 2010 which requires Windows XP SP2/Server 2003 SP1 or later.
  4. I'm gonna look into each revision of DOS 0.74 to see which is the last version known to work under Windows 95 sometime tomorrow.
  5. LAST - FREE - Bochs 2.3.7 (2008-06-05) --- https://sourceforge.net/projects/bochs/files/bochs/2.3.7/ If I am correct on this one, starting with Bochs 2.4.0, the entry point function, IsDebuggerPresent gets introduced in KERNEL32.DLL causing Bochs 2.4+ to not run under Windows 95. IsDebuggerPresent requires Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 98. I have two trivia questions for you to ask. DOSBox 0.7.4 is the latest version that works on Windows 95 if you install Internet Explorer 4.0 SP 2 with Active Desktop. 1. What is the latest version of DOSBox that does NOT require Internet Explorer 4.0.2 with Active Desktop under Windows 95 or Windows NT 4.0? 2. What is the latest official revision of DOSBox 0.74 shown to work under Windows 95?
  6. InitializeCriticalSectionAndSpinCount requires Windows XP SP2 or Windows Server 2003 SP1 or later. WinRAR 3.80 is also the last version to work on Windows NT 4.0, Windows 98, Windows Millennium, Windows 2000, Windows XP RTM/SP1 and Windows Server 2003 RTM. So, I'm gonna lower the version number from 3.92 to 3.80.
  7. Thank you for the heads up. I'll update one of my comments and change it to version 1.82.4. Here is a good screenshot running XnView 1.8.2 on Win95B:
  8. Thank you for the information. When Windows 95 came out, there was no support for wheel functionality on mice. Speaking of XnView, I'm guessing that I'm gonna have to try to find a version of the software that works with Windows 95. I'm on version 1.66 right now.
  9. Here are some more software that I found that works with Windows 95, but is most likely no longer updated: LAST - FREE - AOL Instant Messenger 4.8 ---- (no longer functional) LAST - FREE - Microsoft IntelliMouse (2003-11-11) --- http://priede.bf.lu.lv/ftp/pub/OS/peles/Microsoft/IntelliMouse/IP4_0EngALLMsi.exe ONGD - FREE - InfraView 4.4.4 (2016-12-20) --- http://www.irfanview.com/ LAST - FREE - mIRC 4.1 (1996-04-27) --- http://www.oldversion.com/windows/mirc-4-1 LAST - SHAR - mIRC 6.35 (2008-10-17) --- http://www.oldversion.com/windows/mirc-6-35 LAST - FREE - Netscape 6.23 (2002-03-15) --- http://www.oldversion.com/windows/netscape-6-23 ONGD - SHAR - Total Commander 9.0a (2016-12-14) --- http://totalcommander.ch/win/tcmd900ax32.exe LAST - SHAR - WinRAR 3.80 (2008-05-30) --- http://www.oldversion.com/windows/winrar-3-80 LAST - FREE - Yahoo! Messenger 5.6 --- (no longer functional) I tried to load XnView 2.13 on Windows 95 guest and it's missing a entry point located in KERNEL32.DLL. Does anyone have any idea which version of XnView earlier than 2.13 is the last to work under Windows 95? Also, I can't confirm this, but trying to view the About Box in the latest release of InfraView causes an Illegal Operation and crashes! Lastly, I can't confirm if Total Commander 9.0a works on Windows 95 or now, but can try installing and running it to see if it works or not. If it doesn't, let me know and I'll fix it.
  10. It is the latest Visual C++ redistributable available for Windows 95. It installs the MSVCR70.DLL and MSVCR71.DLL binaries in the \WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory to load software complied with Visual C++ 7.0 and Visual C++ 7.1. With the software operating using the working entry points under Windows 95, the application will run.
  11. Thank you for the link. I'll try to look for more software that is the last to support Windows 95 later on.
  12. I just loaded Adobe Reader 5.1 (2002-09-17) on Windows 95 and it still works. While it is not officially supported by Adobe, it is the last version shown to work on Windows 95. Also MSN Messenger no longer works, because Microsoft shut the service down. LAST - FREE - AlfaMini 1.8.0 --- http://web.archive.org/web/20111220120548/http://www.alfasoftweb.com/download/alfamini_v1.80.exe AlfaMini 2.0.0 doesn't seem to work on Windows 95. LAST - FREE - DirectX 8.0 (2000-11-04) --- http://www.oldversion.com/windows/directx-8-0 LAST - FREE - Visual C++ .NET 2003 Redistributables --- http://www.mdgx.com/files/VC_R_71.EXE I'm gonna test out IMGBurn 2.4.4 and CPU-Z 1.32.1 on Windows 95 later on!
  13. This is the update that you need to install first: KB4015195 After you installed KB4015195 and reboot, you will need to apply these updates: KB890830 (Malicious Software Removal Tool) KB915597 (Windows Defender) KB4014661 (Cumulative Security Update) KB4014652 (Security Update) KB4014793 (Security Update) KB4014794 (Security Update) KB4014984 (.NET Framework Security and Quality Rollup) KB4015067 (Security Update) KB4015380 (Security Update) KB4015383 (Security Update) KB4017018 (Update) KB4017094 (Security Update for Microsoft Silverlight) As far as I know, there are actually 12 updates including the final Windows Defender update. All updates beyond KB4017094 will only be made available for Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.
  14. The KB3165965 update that I linked in older updates is correct. If you're using a very old version of SeaMonkey, you will need to update to SM 2.46 stable. SeaMonkey 2.49, based on Firefox 52, will be the last to support Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 without R2.
  15. Yep. I'm currently waiting on the security updates for April 2017 to be archived. If I'm not lazy, I can check the update history on which security updates were made available for Windows Vista yesterday.
