  1. Can confirm it crashes my Explorer on Windows 8.1 x64... Amazing how such a small thing can trigger a crash. I saw your post on Reddit. Let's hope this gets patched.
  2. Delete everything inside "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download". It's just Windows Update downloaded cache. Delete System Restore Points. These can take up to 10GB. Disable hybernation. Can restore about 5GB. Run the Disk Cleanup utility. Sometimes, it can help. Run on cmd with admin rights: "dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup". This will remove superseded components off WinSxS. Can cleanup from MB to quite a few GB Defrag the disk. I know it shouldn't do anything, but on Windows 8.x it restored for me 100MB, after a restart, which is weird. This is usually what I do to regain some HDD space on Windows. Since Windows 8 doesn't have the "/resetbase" switch that 8.1 has, for the dism command, it won't truly remove everything, but it's a start.
  3. Well... in order to achieve that we would also have to: Port Intel USB 3.0 drivers Port AMD video drivers Port future nVidia video drivers Get Google Chrome working Get the lastest Office working You know, small things
  4. If it's any consolation for @VistaLover, I'll add the forum post with the repository to my signature, so it's easily accessible
  5. Did it give you an error, when trying to install? Dunno... sometimes M$ includes aditional fixes in patches like these, so unless it doesn't install, I don't mind leaving it on there.
  6. And here it is! The most awaited Vista repository with Server 2008 updates (atleast for the few people who care about the OS). Included in here are updates for both x86 and x64 architectures, and all versions of .NET available for Vista, from 2.0 to 4.6.1. If there's anything missing, do let me know.!klBBXC5b!SJSY-VWBto55Ft63CrAgJQ I would like to direct a huge thank you to @VistaLover and @2008WindowsVista, for testing out the updates, and listing them in an easy to copy way
  7. Don't forget to tick the "Generalize" box after doing the updates and choosing the shutdown option, in the sysprep environment, so you can capture it in wim. You could do it in a VM too.
  8. First off, Windows Update still works, but it will only get you the updates until January 2016. If you want updates past that, you have to manually get them. Luckily for you, I made a repository with all updates from February 2016 up until today, which you can access here:!ExhDEbDA!pUhzXKVp5-hgzvylW_btfQ As for integrating updates, you could get most of them until EOL with WSUS Offline from January 2016:, and then get the post January 2016 updates from my repository. There's also this list of Update Rollups that you can use: Hope this helps
  9. And updated repository with this month's Monthly Rollup and Flash Player update, Security Only Updates, IE10 update and both Security Only and Security and Quality Rollups for .NET (all versions.) Also included are the new timezone updates and .NET 4.7 in cab format, for easy integration with DISM.!ExhDEbDA!pUhzXKVp5-hgzvylW_btfQ Coming soon: a repository for Server 2008 updates for Windows Vista...
  10. That's a sixth gen Intel CPU. Those aren't affected by the patch blockade.
  11. .NET Framework 4.7 has arrived for NT 6.2 users (x64 only): Pre-Requisite Update (install this before .NET 4.7) Offline Package Language Pack
  12. Microsoft seems as clueless as ever IMO. People didn't ask for this. People clearly ask for the return of Aero transparency and the option to choose the classic theme. Did they listen to this feedback? No, they just keep going, adding things nobody even asked for, and then put up on the changelogs "We couldn't have done this without the feedback you guys provide", when it's clear most of the data given goes immediately to the trash. I mean, is support for new Emojis supposed to be a stand out feature to be advertised?!!? People want a simple OS that is stable, telemetry free, that bends to the users will, and supports all the newest APIs and functionality. What's that? Microsoft added a new type of Start Menu on Windows 10? WOW! New Paint3D app for Creators! OUTSTANDING! Exactly the type of new Kernel improvement and power user driven decisions I want to see for an OS that needs to be completely updated every 3 yea... scratch that, 12 month... even better, 8 months!
  13. One thing is supported, the other thing is functioning. Somebody needs to test Firefox 53 on Vista and see if it really doesn't work on it.
  14. Are they only targetting XP level driver support, or are they planning on adding WDDM support? What are their long term goals? Does Chrome actually run on it? What kind of concrete changes to the ReactOS kernel have they made? Dunno... Seems like a really young project to say if I'm excited or not.
  15. Probably not deliberate. Most likely a bug feature.
