  1. AOL Instant Messenger 4.8 no longer connects

    AOL Instant Messenger will cease to function on December 15, 2017. This statement was emailed to AIM users on October 6, 2017.
  2. Searching for a few utilities

    @~♥Aiko♥Chan♥~ A modern Office utility? It's been years since Win9x was supported. I have Office 97 to offer, but in my opinion Office 2000 and Office XP are still very useful with the File Format Converter/Compatibility Pack, and so are too new to offer without getting in trouble with Microsoft. They aren't really obsolete, while Office 95 and Office 97 pretty much are. In October 2003, the Internet Archive (WayBack Machine) was granted exemptions to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to protect at-risk software that is obsolete: http://archive.org/about/dmca.php and https://www.copyright.gov/1201/docs/librarian_statement_01.html At this point Office 97 is 20 years old (it was released November 1996), and I have never gotten any copyright complaints. I have a copyright disclaimer on my site, and I don't think Microsoft really cares at this point. My intention is to preserve rare and/or irreplaceable software, along the same lines as the WayBack Machine. If and when they complain, I'll take it down. Hopefully that day will never come.
  3. @dencorso You might still be in to something with NT 5.x. I assume that New Moon still is compatible with Server 2003 R2 since it shares code with XP. Of course there's no guarantee New Moon works with vanilla Server 2003. Perhaps New Moon XP/03? Pronounced "XP-oh-three"? Or, "XP-oh-three-are-2"? It kind of rolls off the tongue.
  4. @dencorso Not bad, but it might confuse Windows 2000 users. NT 5 implies being compatible also with Windows 2000, which it is not.
  5. NewMoonXP? It emphasizes New Moon's mission to serve XP, just as TenFourFox serves Mac OS X 10.4 users.
  6. @roytam1 Thank you for your dedication in updating Pale Moon on a regular basis. Is today's build the last to be called "Pale Moon"?
  7. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    @Dibya Don't really know how to use it, and it could be time consuming. Maybe someone else here can interpret the code?
  8. @heinoganda The link in the first post of this thread (http://www.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/rootsupd.exe) no longer works. I found the one available on XP's last official day of support, April 8, 2014: https://web.archive.org/web/20140408215209/http://www.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/rootsupd.exe
  9. @Nomen @winxpi I tried the "www.youtube.com/v/(video-id)" trick. I tested with Pale Moon 3.6.32 on Windows 2000, and a Taylor Swift video on YouTube's page, and was greeted with the following:
  10. Running Windows 98 in 2017...

    @Wunderbar98 There are printers available on eBay, still brand new, that are compatible with Windows 98. Such as this all in one HP PSC 1410: https://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-PSC-1410-All-In-One-Color-InkJet-Printer-18PPM-Black-Q7290A/191870798687?epid=1319717075&hash=item2cac640b5f:g:fK0AAOSwT6pV6ae5 I did a search for "printer windows 98": https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=printer+windows+98
  11. Latest DivX codec for Windows 95C

    @assenort @PROBLEMCHYLD According to this archived link, 5.0.5 "requires minimum Windows 98", but @assenort got it working on Windows 95 C. You could probably try 5.1 to see if that works, since the requirements are the same. It's a minor point release and may still work. I'm not at a Win95 C machine ATM to test).

  12. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    I tested Dooble 2.1 released 11/13/2017, does not run. This is likely due to the fact that is based on Qt 5.9, and last XP version was Qt 5.6. https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/supported-platforms-and-configurations.html Maybe someone here knows how to run it? Otherwise, Dooble 1.56 is likely the last supported/working version for XP. https://sourceforge.net/projects/dooble/files/
  13. It's been over six months since I've posted in this thread, but I wanted to demonstrate that the current versions of Adobe Flash Player 27 (27 0 0 187) still work on Windows 2000. I run Win2K on my T23 with SP4, the SP4 rollup, and UURollup. The browsers tested are Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2, Firefox ESR Portable 45.8.0, and Chromium 34.0.1847 (the last for SSE/non-SSE2 processors). The installers can be downloaded from here (Firefox and Chromium), and here (Internet Explorer ActiveX)
  14. List of Working Web Browsers on Windows 2000 & NT4

    @tomasz86 That makes sense. I would think running anything modern on vanilla 2000 would be difficult. Sometimes it's hard enough getting modern stuff working on SP4 let alone SP0. As I demonstrated in this thread, the current versions of Adobe Flash Player require SP4, the rollup, the UURollup. IE 5.5 is also required if you plan on being able to run the plug in, because IE5 is way too old.
  15. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    I succeeded in "installing" SlimJet 12 ( with no OS block or restrictrions, but once installed I get 0xc0000005 errors. I tried to select all to copy and paste the error report contents here, but the window does not allow that. The text file also does not contain the same info: Surely there must be a way to get SlimJet running on XP. Perhaps an API from Windows 7 32 bit? (update 11/17 14:53: here is the link for the portable version if anyone wants to look at the components and source code: https://www.slimjet.com/release/archive/
