finally i made it, im registered..
Just let me thank u inventor-guys for helping me to survive with my little machine untill now.. since i just use it for math-calculations and something like CAD, it still does its job right. The highest probability to get a software working is with open-source-software, since the "real" software often uses a new installer. So this is my fist question.. is there a way to deal with these installers, like "unzipping" or implanting, and why are those installers such a problem (for KEX, or what u might need)?!? For example this free CAD-Software wont install: SolidEdge2DDraft.
I still have other things on mind, concerning KEX..
First the hardware: ..I have win98SE GER-version, a gf4 ti 4800 videocard, 512 mb of ram, ...so u see, its a rather old machine, but it survived..
Then some essential? software:
-KEX, the recent one
-RP9.6, recent one, 32-bit icons installed but skins disabled (win2000 theme)*
-Auto-Patcher for Win98SE Dec 2008, seems to work fine
-win98se sp3 b4 ,german version: http://www.nandlstadt.com/win98sp.htm
-tweaked gf4ti-drivers 82.69, i have some problems, sometimes the Screen got black on startup -but removing the nvidia-stuff from the autostart fixed this. But then it seems like the screen is not refreshed correctly in some applications, this is fixed when i access the "Eigenschaften von Anzeige" -> "Einstellungen" -> "weitere Optionen"
.. I dont know how its translated on EN OSes, maybe something like: "Properties of Display" (in the system-controls) -> "Settings" (last tab) -> "further options". Sounds strange but it really helps. Can someone tell me why?!
-Net 2.0 with some updates
-MS visual C++ 2008, visula J# , i dont know if i really need those...
-Firefox 3.5.10, didnt know 3.5.11 was out now, firefox 3.6.x will not wirk with Java, right?!??
-Java 6u20, the last one that works, right??
-Flash 10.1, thanks to new KEX, BUT I CANNOT CONTROL THE SOUND-VOLUME!!!!! anyone experienced this?? flash 10.0.45 worked just fine.
-VLC 1.1.2, (*)ONLY works fine if themes in RP9 are disabled, the VLC-Guys even tell the win98 users to use KEX! nice!! ( with vlc 1.0.5 i experienced the usual "no fonts in options"-problem. what am i missing?? is there a needed font-pack somewhere?!?
well it became a rather long list.. is there someone to give me a hand with some of my problems?? or if there even is a completely different way, dont hesitate to tell me...
