I want to thank you for all the hard and difficult work you have done. I have been a longtime lurker and this is my first post. I have several older machines that I was ready to throw away and they came to life with windows 2k. The newer linux distributions bring these dinosaurs to their knees, although I run a win2k VM under linux mint. I cannot believe the difference in performance, it is fantastic! I am going to the older windows releases, because like most others I hate windows 8. Your progression and improvements to win2k put it on almost an equal footing with windows xp, and far less system resources used for getting the same jobs done.

The VM with my rewritten kernel32 comes up with no errors. I have maybe half a dozen more routines to add, and then the question is, how to test it in the community?
I would just release it with a warning that it is a test version that should only be used in a virtual machine or a secondary system (i.e., not your only computer). The Windows 2000 community is pretty small so (hopefully) you won't get buried with vague bug reports.

In about 3 weeks I should have a spare system available for testing on actual hardware. Just need to get a few more hardware bits for my upcoming physical server relocation so I don't have to swap cables around to boot it.

On another issue, is anyone having problems uploading to Mediafire? I have a v17 of MS11-011 but I've been unable to upload it.. It keeps failing with a -503 permissions error. I deleted some old versions to free up some space in case it was a folder size problem, but that hasn't helped.

Also, I noticed that this month's Security Updates ISO does not include a Windows 2000 IE6 update despite the fact that MS13-037 fixed 3 critical vulnerabilities (every other Critical IE patch had a Win2k update in that month's ISO (except for the January 2013 Out-of-band patch, which was in the February ISO.))

The update includes the netman.dll and secur32.dll fixes I posted about in another thread.
I'm still stumped as to the bug in my kernel32 rewrite. Maybe tomorrow I'll post it plus the full source.

DO NOT INSTALL THIS ON YOUR MAIN SYSTEM
I'm posting this because I've hit a wall on a bug and I need help
