Hi win2000.
I found out why Revolutions Pack wouldn't work for me.
It didn't like your user32.dll!
If I uninstalled it and rolled back to the original, RP then worked fine.
Unfortunately it didn't bring back the icons in Windows Movie Maker, and seemed to be doing nasty things with some of my existing Explorer icons, especially in the Control Panel, so I uninstalled it again.
Any other ideas for the Movie Maker icons, or is it a lost cause?
Cheers, Dave.
:)

I made an additional KDW function with user32.dll since KDW0.76b.

you can use keyboard shortcut as same as WinXP, Win2003 and Intellipoint.

Win + L ... Lock Computer quickly.
Win + B ... Set focus to notify Area.
Win + C ... Call Control Panel.
Win + H ... Safty Hotplug.
Win + A ... Application Wizard
Win + P ... Add or Remove Programs tool
Win + I ... Mouse property.
Win + K ... Keyboard property.

win2000: This looks like a very impressive project. Great work! :)

Unfortunately, I've run into a couple of issues. :(

1) Not all CUDA applications work properly. In particular, the application "Badaboom" does not work properly. Badaboom opens up, can be configured, and input video files can be opened. However, all transcoding operations fail.
Note that all CUDA applications require an nVidia 8xxx series card or newer as well as the CUDA driver, toolkit, and SDK. It probably isn't possible to add support for this without having a compatible nVidia card.

2) When SHELL32.DLL is replaced in system32, the application "SuperCopier 2" no longer works. SuperCopier 2 is an application that attaches to the shell to override normal Windows file copying.

I'm very glad to see that this is still an active project. Keep up the good work. :)

Hi.
It hooks the Function SHFileOparation in SHELL32.dll
You can use it with to rewrite from 'shell32.dll' to 'shell2k.dll' SC2Hook.dll :yes:

2) When SHELL32.DLL is replaced in system32, the application "SuperCopier 2" no longer works. SuperCopier 2 is an application that attaches to the shell to override normal Windows file copying.

Sounds good. Thanks for the tip. :)

FYI, I found another video application that doesn't seem to work with KDW: TMPGEnc MPEG Editor 3.0. It reports that an unsupported version of Windows is being used (both with and without KDW).

Hi.

There is only a problem.
TMPGEnc requires .Net Framework 3.0.

FYI, I found another video application that doesn't seem to work with KDW: TMPGEnc MPEG Editor 3.0. It reports that an unsupported version of Windows is being used (both with and without KDW).

Happy New Year win2000, and everybody!
:thumbup

Just a thought leading from what I was experimenting with earlier.
As Tihiy has stopped development of his Windows 2000 Revolutions Pack as far as I know, is it something you'd consider incorporating into KDW?

Not particularly the new Explorer icons, which I can take or leave, but just support for 32bit icons in the OS generally would be a major enhancement, even if it doesn't actually make the icons work in things like Movie Maker 2!

Just a suggestion.
Dave.

Now I'm trying DRM v3 on Win2000.
Does anyone know the sites which require DRM v3 and available from foreign country?

The video on demand service at
http://www.channel4.com/watch_online/
says that it needs Windows Media Player 11 rather than 10.

Whether that means it uses DRM 3 I don't know, but worth checking out.
:)
Any response on the possible inclusion of Revolutions Pack in KDW?

This is another XP API for Windows 2000

http://win2kgaming.s...t...php?f=6&t=7

I'm experimenting with this one at present. It's got the latest mp3Tag working for me under 2000 - yeah - but I still need to put the application through more testing to verify it. Your mileage may vary.

@Win2000

I don't know if you're still monitoring this thread, as you haven't posted here for ages, but I must bring a couple of things to your attention.

First the good news!

My AVS Video Converter now works with your kernel32.dll installed, as of KDW 0.77.
As you said previously in this thread that you didn't think that would be possible, I'm really pleased!
:thumbup

Now the bad news.......

There seems to be an issue with your user32.dll.
If it is installed on my system, I cannot log off and on again more than once.
It works the first time, but the second time I log off, the system just goes to a blank desktop with the mouse cursor, and goes no further.
The keyboard and mouse are still "live" but no keystrokes do anything, including Ctrl>Alt>Delete.
The only way out is to do a hard restart on the crate.
If I restore the original user32.dll, it all comes good and works fine.
I'm afraid that I don't know when this behaviour started.

There is also now an issue with your 2kdll.dll, as of KDW 0.77b.
If it is installed (version 5.1.2599.8), there are problems with some applications on my system.
Specifically, Internet Explorer crashes when run, as does your Windows Media Player 10.
They both report exception errors in ntdll.dll.
Also, rather strangely, Notepad won't run!

There may be other problems, but these are the ones I quickly found.
I don't know whether these problems are general, or whether they're happening just on my system.
Perhaps others using KDW could comment.........

I hope this feedback gets to you somehow win2000.
I did try e-mailing you some time ago, and sending you a PM, but no response.
You are obviously still developing KDW, as new versions keep appearing, but I really hope that you do pick up this feedback.

Cheers, Dave.

Hi,

I release kdw 0.78a.
I found bug that if you install in system 2kdll.dll and kernel32.dll , crush some application, and fixed it.

and Don't you install Win2000 Revolutions Pack ?
it breaks kdw user32.dll export link table( But I supported from ver 0.78.)



And I found ntdll.dll has critical bug in RtlCaptureStackBackTrace

and I made a patch and constructed install package for multilingal based v5.0.2195.7080.

Windows bug RtlCaptureStackBackTrace in NTDLL.DLL

Just installed the latest KDW.
The 2kdll.dll problem has been fixed, thanks win2000, but the logging off and on problem with user32.dll is still there on my system.
Just to recap, if I log off and on again once in a session, it's fine.
However if I try to log off again in the same session, the system doesn't log off properly, and leaves me with a blank desktop with just the mouse cursor, and never goes any further.
Ctrl>Alt>Delete doesn't do anything, although the keyboard is still live.
It all comes good if the original user32.dll is restored.
Can anyone else using KDW reproduce this problem, or is it just me?
People who are the sole users of their systems may never have seen it of course as they never log off and on again.
I only found it by chance.
Could anyone using KDW just try logging off and on again a couple of times to see if they have the same problem?
Win2000 says that he can't reproduce the problem on his system.

Hi Dave-H :hello:
However, I have never seen this problem my environment.
Please try to new environment with Windows Update if you can. and checke it occurs again.
It may be from language locale problem.
I'll also try to install MSDN English version at free time enough.

recent news.
I succeeded to installed Safari 4 and Windows Live Writer 2008 and Microsoft Visual J# 2.0 Second Edition Redistributable Package.
I released iTunes 8.2 driver(for iPod Touch only) and Catalyst 9.6 driver (on my blog) .

Hi win2000 :hello:
I tried creating a new user profile, but logging off and on with that produced the same problem.
The new profile seemed to be largely a copy of my normal profile though, so I don't know if that actually proved anything. :no:
Is there any way of creating a "clean" new profile that doesn't contain anything but the basics to start up the system?
I suppose most programs install for "all users" by default, so they will always be there in any profile you create.

I have noticed that when the logoff failure occurs, the desktop clears, but then there is a quick burst of hourglass activity on the cursor, and then the system stops.
It must be something in the KDW user32.dll.
If I restore the original I can log off and on as many times as I like.

Would it be possible to use an older version of the user32.dll from KDW, alongside the latest files?
Would that work?
It may be that this hasn't always been a problem, and if I can determine at which version it started, that could be an important clue.

Thanks, Dave.

I decided to give this a try again, and I got Windows Media Player 10 running on my Windows 2000 box. Thanks for all your effort! :hello:

Might I make a suggestion for KDW? I noticed that a lot of the buttons haven't been translated into English. I've received permission to use and distribute a set of free images for buttons, toolbars, and such (from someone who works on another project who would like to remain anonymous :ph34r: ) Anyhow, would you mind maybe trying some of them on certain buttons? That way, even if the text isn't translated, the image could at least tell us something about what it does (e.g. magnifying glass for "Browse..." buttons).

Here's a link to the image files. They're quite good.

Hi again!

I managed to create a "clean" user profile, which is pretty much un-customised, although it does still load the "all users" programs of course.

Just wanted to pass on that the problem with user32.dll is still present logging off and on using that profile, if that signifies anything!

I will do some experiments with earlier versions of the KDW user32.dll when I get around to it, which won't be until next week now.

Mr Win2000. I wanted to make a note, that tonight I have finally achieved success installing Google Chrome 2.0 on my trusty workhorse Windows 2000 workstation! Using your crm2k018.zip tool. I made a detailed post about it here: http://nspeaks.com/3.../#comment-10282

Here is the contents of that post:

Hardcore Windows 2000 user here. Since Chrome came out, the only version I could ever get working was 0.2.149.30. I’ve been using the crap out of it for over 6 months. Newer versions always crashed or failed to install.

I am SHOCKED to report SUCCESS tonight installing 2.0.166.1 with blackwingcat’s crm2k018.zip. This whole thing was so **** confusing, especially since I speak English not Japanese. Here is what I did. Googled until I found the full 2.0.166.1 install (sorry I can’t recall where I got it). It is 9MB (NOT 500KB). I renamed that ChromeSetup.exe and put it in my default download folder (goofy requirement of blackwingcat’s hack). Then I ran the crm2k018 CHROME2K.exe hack unpacked in a folder. I had to click each of the buttons from top to bottom. As you proceed, they should light up.

The install itself happens fast and sometimes doesn’t happen at all. Get to your Docs & Settings Local Data Google Chrome Application folder and verify that the new 2.0 EXE is there and installed. I had to run the install a few times before it worked (WTF?).

The last step is “Install USer32/Advpi32/Kernel32 Wrapper” (yeah it has a typo, not very confidence-inspiring…). After that you MUST reboot. Then try launching the new Chrome exe right out of the app directory (in your Docs & Settings Local Settings).

I’m thinking about writing a high quality, native-English, edited web page for this problem so nobody else has to waste 2 hours like I just did!

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. :)
