You can install easier VMWare 3.1.6 with Windows installer 3.1v2 plus.

and set msiexec.exe set XP mode.

Is there a tutorial available anywhere where this is explained in more detail?

Cheers and Regards

* Install Windows installer 3.1v2 plus.

* set XP Mode msiexec.exe with fcwin.

* restart Windows Installer service

* set XP mode VMWare installer

* install VMWare

* delete compatible mode msiexe.exe

* replace hcmon.sys v 7.0.1.11056

* If you don't use Extended Core, replace VMWare NDIS Bridge Driver also.

Later I could test with your vbx image.

But, It seems to work without problem :wacko:

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. :(

This is very strange :blink:

Could you upload the image again? I mean the one which you have just tested (without any new changes)?

New information!!!

Silverlight works when system locale is set to Japanese! It does not work when it's different than Japanese.

Really? How did you know that Microsoft Silverlight works when the system locale is set to only Japanese? Do you know which of the DLLs that were used to make Silverlight work when it is only in the Japanese language?

Thx.

I fixed it and released v22k3.

I found that SilverLight throw Exception and terminate when it fails function GetThreadPreferredUILanguages .

Thank you for releasing a update to your KernelEx project! I found that GetThreadPrefferedUILanguages is only present on Windows Vista and later. Windows XP is not even supported with this function. :(

I can confirm that Silverlight does work now when system locale is set to English or Polish... but it still crashes if I set it to Korean or Chinese. It's the same error as before :}

That's good to hear that! I'm glad that Silverlight is working now. :)

@blackwingcat Hey, have you perhaps tried to do anything with Silverlight and other East Asian locales? I'd really like to have Silverlight work with Korean locale :(

@int0x13 There are no unofficial updates for a French version of Win2k so you can either use KDW to change file dependencies or forcibly install the English version of the unofficial kernel / UURollup. Some parts of your system will change into English so take this into account ;)
