KernelEx for Win2000

Silverlight doesn't seem to work any more with the new versions of the kernel. The browser just crashes (tried IE6, Firefox, Maxthon and Qupzilla). The last version of the kernel where Silverlight works is v20m3

I may be wrong I suspect that the problem lies in ntdll.dll.

Blackwingcat, Thank you for your hard work ! I just installed Yahoo messenger,and it works Great...Now if i could just get my webcam to work.My webcam is a Logitech C120. I extract the drivers,then install it with Device Manager.The drivers seem to install fine.But in Device Manager it says the Device Cannot Start.I really wish it worked.

I guess Logitech dont want people useing Windows 2000.lol

Like i said,all the Drivers are listed in Device Manager.But it just wont load the drivers.

For those trying to install WMP11...Maybe this works for you.

if you have the following errors:

the version of windows you have installed does not match the update you are trying to install

Setup could not verify the integrity of the file Update.inf. Make sure the Cryptographic service is running on this computer. Failed to install catalog files.

After installing Blackwingcat`s DLL Wrapper and Kernelex, I noticed Cryptographic Service became broken. This led to the fact I couldn`t install WMP11. After searching for solutions, I managed to install it with the following method.

- Extract the contents of WMP11.exe

- Go to the extracted folder and go the folder update

- Open the file update.inf with notepad or another text editor

- replace the first part [version] so that it lists the following:

[Version]

Signature="$Windows NT$"

LanguageType=%LangTypeValue%

CatalogFile=%SP_SHORT_TITLE%.cat

NtBuildToUpdate=2195

NtMajorVersionToUpdate=5

NtMinorVersionToUpdate=0

MaxNtBuildToUpdate=2195

MaxNtMajorVersionToUpdate=5

MaxNtMinorVersionToUpdate=0

MinNtServicePackVersion=1024

MaxNtServicePackVersion=1024

ThisServicePackVersion=1280

- Replace update.exe with update.exe coming from another working WIndows 2000 update or hotfix.

That should do the trick. Same idea goes for installing wmfdist11

Be careful with such a WMP11 installation! I haven't tested it on my computer but just from looking at the update.inf I'm 99% sure that you won't be able to UNinstall it completely so think of it as a "one-way ticket". In case of wmfdist11.exe there are actually unfixed dependencies in some of the files and they just won't work.

Also, as blackwingcat has already mentioned several times, you can't play DRM protected content in WMP11 under Win2k.

I don't have any problem with IE6 and Firefox ESR and Silverlight5 and exkernel v22k2.

Which version did you use silverlight ?

I guess Logitech dont want people useing Windows 2000.lol

Like i said,all the Drivers are listed in Device Manager.But it just wont load the drivers.

Sorry.

I have seen some reports which logitech driver would not work on windows 2000.

The problem has not resolved yet.

For those trying to install WMP11...Maybe this works for you.

I don't recommend WMP 11, because It occurs problem on MTP and DRM.

Which version did you use silverlight ?

I've done one more test.

  1. Installed clean Win2k SP4.
  2. Installed IE6 SP1.
  3. Installed Update Rollup 1 (v2).
  4. Installed Roots Certificates update (KB931125).
  5. Installed KB2722913 for IE6.
  6. Installed KB957579.
  7. Installed Kernel v22k2.
  8. Installed MSI 3.1 (Silverlight's installer requires it).
  9. Installed Silverlight 5.1.10411.0 (the newest version).

Unfortunately Silverlight still doesn't work :(

I test it here: http://bubblemark.com/

When trying to run http://bubblemark.com/silverlight2.html I get:

I too received a crash in Microsoft Silverlight affecting Internet Explorer and the offending module name appears to be kernel32.dll (module version 5.0.2195.7193), the exception information output are as follows:

Code: 0xe0434352

Flags: 0x00000001

Record: 0x0000000000000000

Address: 0x000000007C59CB1

I'm guessing that a lot of files in version 5.0.2195.7193 broke Silverlight support and it's not just kernel32.dll or ntdll.dll. :(

No it isn't.

I installed Root Certificates For Windows XP [November 2012].

Thank you. I've installed it but unfortunately it hasn't made any difference. Silverlight still doesn't work :(

I use VirtualBox 1.5.6, not VMWare. I hope it's not a problem for you. I've uploaded my VDI file here (VirtualBox_test.7z).
