I'd like a list of entries under MPRServices of those of you who have problems with booting.

Nothing apart from KernelEx here.

KernelEx:
DLLName: C:\Windows\KernelEx\KernelEx.dll
EntryPoint: _MprStart@4
Stack size: 0x00001000

Also did RC1 work fine in this respect (system without RP9) ?

I can't recall unfortunately.

Now KernelEx pre-loads all entries before doing initialization. Theoretically it shouldn't affect the system in any way...

Well I hope I am not blaming KernelEx because of another problem I have.

:whistle: Gdiplus.dll 5.1.3102.5512(from my xpprosp3 version) may help with Firefox3 install, as i installed this after RP9+KEX4.0RC;,but also copied another Firefox3 install from PuppyLinux-Lighthouse4.12rc2 and this version of Firefox3.0.8 has yet to "Crash" :thumbup

I've only got the mpr hang once or twice. Here's the two subkeys under MPRServices (no keys under the main MPRServices key):

KernelEx:
DLLName: C:\Windows\KernelEx\KernelEx.dll
EntryPoint: _MprStart@4
Stack size: 0x00001000

RP8:
DLLName: rp8.dll
EntryPoint: InitAsync
StackSize: 0x00002000

RP 9.1.0 and KernelEx 4.0 RC2.

I've only got these two entries too.
It did not happen in RC1 and installing RP9 fixes the problem in RC2...

1st GREAT job. I now can run Firefox 3.0.8 on a PII running ME
I am having trouble getting Flash 10.0.22.87 to install. It says unsupported OS and the Flash install log show ME.
I did the reg update and tried the campat tap too.

Are you running KEx4 RC2? Also, do note that only the firefox / netscape version will work. The ActiveX version will not (flashplayer_10_ax.exe or something to that effect).

WHat I find also worked (might be in this case) was changing the OS version in the other reg path too. The one on the second post indicates:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion]

Instead, using regedit, navigate to:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion]

.. and change the key 'VersionNumber' to something like 5.10.2222, making sure to keep note what your version said before changes so as to set it back to the correct one after install.

Many many thanks, I can now listen to on-line streaming of a DAB Plus station which (regrettably) required the newest version of Flash. This worked perfectly. We owe you guys a huge debt! I was unaware Kernel Ex or even this forum existed. :thumbup

it's possible add the pause button for process explorer 11.13? On Windows 98 SE, i click right on a process, i haven't the pause button, but on Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008/7 i have the pause button :unsure:

Adding "SuspendThread" to Kernel32.dll may be good
Declare Function SuspendThread Lib "kernel32.dll" ( _
ByVal hThread As Long) As Long

You could use Another Task Manager if you want to suspend threads.

With regards to boot freeze issues, I can report that I have reduced considerably their occurences by enabling bootlog. I have failed booting just once out of around 20 boots since I have enabled it. Does not make much sense to me but here you got the information anyway.

I can confirm too, that FF 3.5 works smoothly with one exception: I've problem with Chinese/Japanese characters - they're not displayed properly.
Could anyone help me, how to fix that (if this is possible of course)?

No, this has nothing to do with installed fonts.
Under Firefox 2.0.0.22 pre, I haven't such problem.

If you have RP9 less than 9.1.0 or UberSkin, install latest GDI and USER versions:

I hope you know there are different IMEs for users of Office 2000/XP. So if you have any of those products installed, you should uninstall the standard IME and install the dedicated one depending on which Office version you use.

GenuineCheck.exe ver. 1.7.36.0 works with Win98. I don't remember if I had KeX installed or not when I last run this program.
I saved the .exe because somehow I knew I will need it later. :D

It's possible to send me this file?

Here is a direct download Microsoft link for v. 1.5.723.1, which is older but should also work OK: GenuineCheck

I am pleased to report that KernelEx runs rock stable here. It took me a while to assess that as I was plagued since around the time I installed it by some nasty stability issues which I have now all fixed without removing KernelEx.

Occasional freeze on boot remains despite that but they are rare since I enabled bootlog so this is no big deal at all.

Great job :thumbup

Installed Acrobat Professional 6 this morning and it crashes in msi.dll when I enable 2K compatibility mode. If AIOD.dll (Adobe Install On Demand) is not present the crash does not occur and Acrobat launches normally. 2K mode allows Acrobat to run the Preflight plugin. I am in no need for a fix as it's perfectly fine without AOID but I thought that was maybe an interesting error so here is a DrWatson crash log :

Fix
>right clicked the file >clicked 'Properties' >clicked 'Compatibility' tab >clicked ' Disable KernelEx extension for this program' check box to enabled it
>rebooted

Then installed Firefox 3.5 and enjoyed using it.

Many thanks for this highly appreciated solution.

I trying reinstaling with Microsoft Global IME (Input Method Editor) 5.02 for Windows 95, 98, and NT 4.0 • scmondo.exe: Simplified Chinese IME + lang pack (4.3 MB - page bottom) and chinese character OK (FF2.0.0.22pre, FF 2.0.0.20, FF3.5, IE 6.1).

So you managed to install the Chinese IME? Are all of the dialogs and menus working? Mine is still broken since KernelEx 0.3.6 (Or maybe even before that? I don't have 0.3.2 to test with anymore)... :( (Right-clicking on the Chinese IME icon and clicking the "Input options" menu only produces a "click" sound)
