KernelEx for Win2000

872 posts in this topic

Okay, I tested KernelEx 13e2 and when I attempted to add or remove programmes, the Add/Remove Programs feature (appwiz.cpl found in \SYSTEM32 directory) no longer functions. :(

Additionally, when I tried to execute the installation of either the Flash Player plugin/ActiveX component, I get the following error message: "The application failed to initialize properly (0xC0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application."

Is there any way to fix this by setting the compatibility mode of the application designed for Windows XP or later?

Also, Microsoft's version of their legacy JVM and Oracle's version of Java both cause both Internet Explorer 6 and Firefox 10 to hang. And that I can neither reinstall Java 6 Update 31 nor Java 7 Update 3...getting a "Internal Error 2753 - regutils.dll". But ironically, only the Microsoft Java VM works.

Can anyone confirm this? :(

On the bright side, I test out the 2012-02-20 nightly of Firefox 13 and it works and so does VLC Media Player 2.0.0! :thumbup

Thx to report it.

I may fix this problem by v13f kernel (while ago).

You also may use firefox v13 on v13 kernel :)

You're welcome! I can't wait for v13f to come out to fix the broken Add/Removal Programs control panel app as well as the latest version of Flash Player and Oracle Java not installing properly.

I had already released it. :)

(It meant that I released it and the problem may be fixed.)

If you can't run Add/Removal Programs control panel app. You can uninstall old version from %SystemRoot%\$NtUninstallKB935839-v13e2$\spuninst\spuninst.exe.

Thanks for the help. I uninstalled KernelEx v13e2 and tried out v13f. Here's what has happened so far. I would like to update that the KernelEx project for Win2k is starting to seriously improve! :)

I was able to use the Add/Remove Programs control panel applet and install Flash Player 11.1.102.62 without any problems.

I even managed to reinstall Java 6 Update 31, however when I installed Java 7 Update 3, I was told that the previous version of Java was already reinstalled. To get around this, I used the NT Registry Optimizer to clean out any unused entries, restart the computer and Java 7 Update 3 installed and ran sucessfully! :)

Awesome work so far! :thumbup

Is it possible to install a newer version of KernelEx ontop of the previous version without uninstalling it first?

As for the effects on USB devices and older hardware that I have installed, I'm gonna post a separate forum thread before I apply KernelEx on the host PC. :)

blackwingcat the latest version 13f works great for installing the updated flash, java, and VLC player on W2k. Great job. Firefox 13 UX nightly though is giving me this error:

"The procedure entry point SHParseDisplayName could not be located in the dynamic link library Shell32.dll."

Any chance this can be fixed?

Also is there any hope for including these newer programs:

Skype 5.8.0.154

Quick Time 7.71.80.42

Adobe Reader 10.1.2

Skype 5.8 installs but is giving me an error when trying to open it.

Your ATI Radeon drivers for my AGP 4600 card have been excellent, been using them for a few years no problem.

It looks like that Mozilla developers have added another new dependency that doesn't exist on Win2k and that they recently removed the support code for Win2k from Gecko. :(

Are you still getting the same error message in the regular Fx13 nightly as well?

I sure hope that blackwingcat fixes this as I'm ready to test it out on this PC!

ppgrainbow I'm getting the same error with both the UX and regular 13 nightlies.

Hopefully blackwingcat will update this for us. If not we may have to rely on a fork like Pale Moon. They may or may not continue the 3.6 series when Mozilla stops support in April.

I already have tested Skype from 5.3 to 5.8 with KDW.

They worked on Windows 2000, but we can't use audio devices on Skype with Unknown reason.

Plese see following topic

If anyone find out the reason then I'll embedded it. :)

(KernelEx v14 already has 'SHParseDisplayName' in shell32.dll.

It is japanese only. English version is Coming soon)

The version of KernelEx is already up to version 14c and I'm hoping that the OP in question gets the English version up soon. As for Pale Moon itself, they will most likely not continue support after Mozilla pulls the support plug for Firefox 3.6 on the 24th of April and support for Win2k on the 5th of June. :(

blackwingcat thanks for the update, I look forward to v14 in English.

The last Skype to work was v5.0.0.156 but I see from the link that with your kernekex installed 5.33 apparently is ok. Now that Microsoft has bought them out I know it's just a matter of time until the older versions stop working altogether. In fact I expect it won't even install on XP anymore either very soon, probably in a year or two.

Believe it or not I've got XP and Win 7 as well but still prefer W2k simply because I consider it to be their best OS.

ppgrainbow: 3.6 will probably be dead after April. It looks like Pale Moon takes the updated code from Mozilla then customizes it, I'm not sure they do any of the programming themselves on the security fixes. Strangely their later versions won't install on W2k even though Mozilla's still do. You need at least XP SP2.

Fx3.6 and Gecko 1.9.2 will indeed be dead on the 24th of April which is when Firefox 12 gets released. I believe that starting with Pale Moon 8.1, I'm strongly guessing that they probably switched to MSVC 2010 SP1 before the developers at Firefox did. And the CRT included with MSVC 2010 requires WIndows XP SP2 whatever you're running it as the main PC or in a virtualised environment. MSVC 2012 will not even support Windows XP at all. :(

I do believe that Win2k is the best OS that Microsoft has ever made. With the English update version of KernelEx v14 to fix this, I sure hope that all hope isn't lost. :)

I think Pale moon v9.x and Firefox v13 work on Windows 2000 with v13 kernel :)

Well...the 2012-02-20 build of Firefox 13 nightly did work with KernelEx v13f, but in the latest build, Fx13 nightly (2012-02-29) refuses to run. Developers may add more dependencies that do not exist on Win2k before Firefox 13 moves to Aurora in less than two weeks. :(

I sure hope that there is a English version of KernelEx v14 soon if it is stable enough to use. :)

ppgrainbow is right about dependencies - shell32.dll lacks SHParseDisplayName. Actually the much more annoying thing is that the installer now is set to work on XP SP2 or higher only.

I hate this kind of artificial installation blocking :realmad:

Of course you can still run the newest nightly:

1) Unpack the installer.

2) Fix dependency of xul.dll. I use rplbfile.exe from KDW.

3) Place uxtheme.dll in FX folder.

4) Firefox runs fine.

BTW, Opera still supports and works perfectly fine in W2K :whistle:

After checking out various IE6 files from XP SP3 and 2003 SP2, it is possible to make use of those updates, as long as some file mixing occurs.

XP SP3's browseui.dll has 2 unresolved dependencies in ole32.dll, CoRegisterInitializeSpy and CoRevokeInitializeSpy. 2003 SP2's browseui.dll does not have this issue.

However, 2003 SP2's shlwapi.dll has 4 unresolved dependencies in kernel32.dll (ActivateActCtx, CreateActCtx, DeactivateActCtx, and ReleaseActCtx), as well as 1 unresolved dependency in ntdll.dll (RtlIsThreadWithinLoaderCallout).

Since almost every other file in both streams requires a couple of missing APIs in shlwapi.dll and the latest shlwapi.dll update for those platforms (MS10-007) has the same missing dependency situation as the base SP level.

Just an idea for how everyone can keep their IE6 up to date; it's still in support under 2003 until July of 2015.

XP's shlwapi.dll won't work in 2000 even after fixing those dependencies. I did test it some time ago.

I don't remember exactly but, if my memory is right, explorer restarts itself each time you want to open a folder. There are probably more issues with it.

I knew it. I sure hope that the stable version of KernelEx v15 comes out real soon. As for the latest Fx13 nightly, the dialogue box was meant to prevent the MSVC 2010-based browser from installing on Windows XP SP1 and below. :(

blackwingcat us beggars are back hoping we can get the 15 version soon. :) The Firefox 13 nightly looks good on XP be nice to keep it going on W2k too.

If not I notice the ESR version is available for download on the portable page and they'll keep updating the 10 version for almost a year or more so if worse comes to worse we'll at least get the security fixes.
