Hello!

> Using your crm2k018.zip tool

There is a new version: crm2k019.zip

Blackwingcat says:

July 1, 2009 at 2:43 pmI released Google Chrome installer for Win2000 v 1.9

New function

The Google Chrome can’t install with overwrite older version. I add a button to delete version information.

after version 1.8 . you don’t have to rename from Mini_Installer.exe to ChromeSetup.exe .

The ‘Set Compatible Registry’ Button support Mini_Installer.exe

BTW, was someone able to install SRware Iron, which is based on Chromium 2.0.178 (build 15300)?

Thanks, Roman

P.S. Here is another WebKit based browser in single executable: QTWeb

http://www.qtweb.net/download.php It is working in Windows 2000. :)

Thanks for this new version! I had to search for quite a while to find it, so many 404 broken links pointing to your old blog. Here is a direct link for other readers: http://w2k.livedoor.biz/arc/crm2k019.zip

I checked out the QtWeb: Awesome!! Thank you for showing me this!

Blackwingcat, I just wanted to say, thanks for making that ATI 48xx driver. I recently bought an Asus EAH4890 TOP card and your driver is working great on my Win2k box.

Hey win2000/blackwingcat,

Just letting you know; letting KDW set the ExcludeFromKnownDlls value breaks Daedalus. It also breaks ICONDESK's transparent desktop icon labels (continuous flickering).

However, without it Windows Media Player 10 will not work. :(

It also messes up the Start Menu's icons, but no other icons that I found were affected.

Btw, you should update the first post to 078e.

As well as the KDWINST file, it says 074. :)

Hi,Colonel O'Neill

KDW 0.78d and 0.78e have critical bug.

please use 0.78c or 0.78f

kdw set Icondesk's transparent on registry, look trans.reg.

New version WMP10 can work without install KDW in system.

Does the Start Menu's icons trouble occure again after deleting shelliconcache?

Alright, I'm using KDW 0.78f now, and have applied the icon label transparency fix.

However, the icons have become 24-bit like before, and the start menu icons are still random.

:blink:

Does it mean there is a new MP10 installer, or do I just tell the existing one to use the new KDW Binary folder from 0.78f?

Do you use VistaPack ,Colonel O'Neill ?

I want to try to set look like your environment.

Please try to use EzInstall mode.

1. check EzKD Reg with KDllInst.

2. uninstall KDW shell32.dll from system.

3. install shell32.dll to target application folder with KDllInst ezmode.

I reshacked my own shell32.dll, and use it whenever version numbers match.

I also didn't have KDllInst replace anything where my existing file was newer than the one to replace it. Shell32.dll was not replaced. :blink:

I'll upload you shell32.dll if necessary.

Hi, Colonel O'Neill

What does 'reshacked' mean ?

If KDllInst can't replace shell32.dll you set temporarily disable Security software and try again.

or copy from \WINNT\system32\dllcache\shell32.dll to \winnt\system32\shell32.dll on Recovery console.

I changed the icons in shell32.dll myself with Resource Hacker :yes:

I can't figure out how to use EzInstall mode; the button is disabled.

I'm not sure which folder to refer in the top part.

Mr BlackWingCat, you are a hero for all us Die hard Windows 2000 users. As I mentioned earlier on post #174, your KDW/crm2k019 kit got Google Chrome 2.0.166 working on my Windows 2000 - thank you very much!

But I still have a few issues, for instance Right-Click Chrome Title Bar, "Task manager" and then Drag the bottom of the window vertically downwards, then the window is not painted properly...

At first it works perfect: 20090818-2g3-188kb.jpg

But after dragging its broken: 20090818-w18-203kb.jpg

Also there are some ToolTip bugs when pointing at Tabs in Chrome.

Can I just swap the advapixp.dll 2008/11/22, kernelxp.dll 2009/05/24, and userxp.dll 2009/03/19 that came with chrm2k019, and update to the newest ones from KDW 078f? (all from 2009/08/xx)

Hi, Syclone0044.

I fixed Chrome Installer for Windows 2000 v2.0b.

You also can use chrome version 3.0.190.1~4.0.201.1 on Windows 2000 in this version :thumbup

note: v3.0 and 4.0 require Win2000-KB915985-v2

Thx

Great! Using your installer v2.1 and Mulder's Chromium Updater ( http://mulder.dummwiedeutsch.de/home/?page=projects#chromium ) I was able to post this message from Chromium 4.0.204.0 (Developer Build 24436) :thumbup

Does installing Google Chrome as specified above require the KDW package, and does anyone have an English tutorial on how to get programs like Chrome running on Win2k?

Looks like it's here on Black Winged Cat's page. Scroll to about mid-page for downloads.

Hi, B.W.Cat! You're the champ !

note: v3.0 and 4.0 require Win2000-KB915985-v2

Would that be the fix described at : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/915985 ?

I can't see any mention of "v2" there, alright ?

[Edited by Ninho] Ah, I see now, that is the fix from YOUR page http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/archives/360097.html

Now, the MS kb article says their (non-v2) fix is for Win 2k Server. Can we/must we install your fixed ntdll to Win 2k Pro Workstation, too, before installing your Chrome package ?

I am posting this from a fresh Windows 2000 VM with SP4, URP1, the user32, kernel32, and shell32 security updates, and Chrome 4.0.220.1 (Oct 2009) installed with crm2k30.

I did not install KB915985-v2. Why is this necessary? It seems to function OK without it?

I am concerned about replacing my critical NTDLL.DLL with a hacked/patched version. No offense to you Mr. BlackWingCat, you seem to know what you're doing, but NTDLL.DLL is used by every process on my system and I can't afford to risk system stability.

you would only need 915985 if you're:

  • Running Windows 2000 Server
  • Using File Replication Services (FRS)
  • Replicating a large number of small files to another FRS member
  • Have compression enabled on the FRS volume(s) containing said small files
  • Want to run Google Chrome 3.x or 4.x ;)

Unless you fit that list, you don't actually NEED 915985. As to system stability, I'd probably be as paranoid about it as you are, however, given that there hasn't been a new version of ntdll since March 2006 (915985), changes have had time to be fairly well tested.

I think you're confusing KB915985 with BlackWingCat's custom patched KB915982-v2.

I am running Google Chrome 4.0 and I do not have either version of 915985. So why do I need it? That is the question. What consequence do I face if I opt not to update it?

Indeed I was. Revised my list:

  • Replicating a large number of small files to another FRS member
  • Have compression enabled on the FRS volume(s) containing said small files

Unless you see the above as a need for your box, you don't "need" it at all.

Hi Syclone0044.

I found there is a bug in RtlCaptureStackBackTrace.

RtlCaptureStackBackTrace bug apears with the Google Chrome 3.0. and SRWare Iron.

KB915985-v2 is fixed RtlCaptureStackBackTrace bug from KB915985.

Perhaps Chrome 4.0 banished this bug. :)
