KernelEx Apps Compatibility List (New)

470 posts in this topic

If the app is calling ExpandEnvironmentStringsForUser, replacing kernelex\userenv.dll with M()zart's version should fix the %systemroot% expansion problem.

But Kernel32, Ntdll, and Shlwapi also contain environment string expansion functions so in all cases adding this to Autoexec.bat should also work:
  set systemroot=C:\windows

Unfortunately, the app shouldn't be assuming Program Files is in your SystemRoot folder.

So try this workaround instead to reference off the current folder (real Program Files):
set systemroot=..

I was working on Userenv.dll just last week and discovered that M()zart's version is actually much better than the Wine code used in KernelEx. It's just missing a couple of stubs which are easy to add. When I discovered the environment issue is much broader, I temporarily stopped work.

Audacity audio editor v2.1.3, released 2017-Mar-17, working ok with KernelEx updates (v4.5.2016.16).

Note that the website says this will be "the last version of Audacity that will officially support Windows XP", so i don't know what that will mean for future KEx compatibility.
