AviDemux 2.5.3, why: Failed with missing MSVCRT.DLL:_fstat64

MSVCRT.DLL version 6.10.9848.0 contains _fstat64.

So also do MSVCR70.DLL 7.00.9981.0 and MSVCR71.DLL 7.10.7031.4 (for anyone using them as a MSVCRT.DLL update).

All are available in 98 SE SP 3.0.

It looks like that Adobe pulled the plug on Windows 2k and Windows 98 with Adobe Flash Player 11.2. :(

I believe that changeserviceconfig is a dependency that only exist in Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later along with SetDllDirectoryW which first existed in the second update to Flash Player 11.1.

VLC Player 2.0.1 working smoothly with KeX 4.5.2.

I have tried portable version of SumatraPDF 2.0 but I've got error message about missing export NTDLL.DLL:wcsncat.

Btw, loblo could you try latest version of AV Splitter?

Installation was successful but it doesn't work on my PC.

I could run Sumatra PDF 2.0 by putting an XP ntdll.dll (renamed 9xdll.dll) in the Sumatra folder and hexing the string ntdll.dll to 9xdll.dll in SumatraPDF.exe and I guess a stub dll with dummy wcsncat and vsprintf functions would work just as well.

I tried to hack AV Splitter to try to make it work several times but unlike with FFDShow and LAVFilter I was never successful unfortunately. :no:

mikroPascal PRO for ARM 2.00, from www.mikroe.com (with KernelEx 4.5.2).

After installing the compiler (I chose not to install the optional mikroProg suite and drivers, so I don't know their compatibility), it is necessary to replace the installed 'FTD2XX.dll' file (yeah, that's an interface to FTDI's USB driver; even if you elect not to install the drivers, there's still a dependency on this DLL by the compiler application) with a W98 compatible version from here.

Then simply run the compiler in default compatibility mode or some W9X compatibility mode. If you chose an NT compatibility mode, instant crash!

BTW, there's a minor nuisance crash (access violation) on exit, but it doesn't seem to affect anything.

This is about the newest compiler at this time from MikroElektronika, so the others there are probably also compatible in the same manner, perhaps even more so.

Joe.

This hex-hack worked for me too, except that i had to hex-edit the LibMuPDF.dll file as well -- there's one occurrence of "ntdll.dll" in the LibMuPDF.dll file and two occurrences in the SumatraPDF.exe file. I changed 'em all -- seems to be working fine (KEx v4.5.120). Remember to copy ntdll.dll from WXP to Sumatra's folder and rename it to "9xdll.dll". (Wondering -- would a W2K ntdll.dll work as well?)

Thanks loblo!

Yeah libmupdf.dll must also be hexed if one's using the install version, the portable version which I was using at the time hasn't got any dlls. I am now using the install version as well as I decided to use it as my browser plugin for pdf because of its blazing speed. Glad it's working for you as well.

(Wondering -- would a W2K ntdll.dll work as well?)

Ok, i anwered my own question -- the ntdll.dll from Windows 2000 Professional SP4 *does* work for SumatraPDF (same procedure as above), and it's file size is a bit smaller than the WXP SP3 version:

2K SP4: 491,792 bytes, v5.0.2195.6685

XP SP3: 706,048 bytes, v5.1.2600.5512

On the W2K Pro SP4 installation CD-ROM, ntdll.dll is located in the \I386 folder.

Note that SumatraPDF web page states: "Supported OS: Windows 7, Vista, XP."

Why not rename it as 'xpdll.dll'?

Hello there, I can officially say that firefox 9.0.1 portable version works stable for me, I have moved from my usb stick to my harddrive.

My system: Windows 98 SE 4.10.2222B winth kernelex 4.5.2 installed

Motherboard Aopen

Chipset : Intel i440BX/ZX

Processor : Intel Pentium III E @ 850 MHz

Memory : 512 MB (2 x 256 SDRAM )

NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400

usb 2.0 card Belkin

80 gigabyte harddisk advance 29100 ultra dma100 controller

I had to tweak prefs.js the same as about:config. Firefox 9.0.1 is working even faster then 3.6.28. And I could use nearly all the plugins I had with 3.6.28.

I am testing now Firefox 10.2 portable with adapted prefs.js form firefox 9.1 portable. Firefox 10.2 seems also stable, I will do some testing.

Firefox 9.01 is much faster then Firefox 3.6.28.

Changes in my prefs.js:

Hi there. Well seems I have a problem. Every time when I have changed the prefs.js it is changed back to the old value by the settings in a

about:config when I start the browser. So when I exit Firefox 10.02 then I get the old value back which I already had changed.

And it is difficult for me to use about:config in firefox 10.02. So how can I change prefs.js without it is being changed back to the old value,

when Firfox is started and then shutdown ? I will try to find it. Does anyone know what I can do ?

Hello, I already found out what my problem was changing prefs.js from firefox. There was a file user.js with changed prefs,js. back. So I

removed user,js. And I could change prefs.js without using about:config.

The problem appears to be down to the regutils.dll in the cab file that needs a new function from Kernel32.dll. I have rebuild that cab with the regutils.dll from update 31 and edited the msi with orca because the resulting cab file had an invalid signature. Doing that it only partially installs and must be completed by hand after which it seems to be working OK, tested briefly on a couple of apps I have on disk and on a couple of online applets with K-Meleon.

Grab it here: http://www.4shared.com/archive/Sq96KIGu/JRE6u32_fixed.html

Run the msi installer and once it's done, copy the files in the "Copy 2 Windows" folder to your Windows folder and the one in the "Copy 2 System" folder to your System folder overwriting the files already in place which still are the old ones. Finally merge the registry file after making sure the paths it contains are also your paths, otherwise adjust them before merging. Once all this is done done it should work OK.

Which Firefox 10 is working? According to http://kernelex.sourceforge.net/wiki/Mozilla_Firefox : Firefox 10.0.4: Installs and runs unmodified.

However, I failed installing 10.0.4esr on 98SE, it said: Sorry, Firefox can't be installed. This version of Firefox requires Microsoft Windows 2000 or newer.

The wiki seems incorrect. Did you encounter this error too?

The only Firefox 10 mozilla download link is from ESR (10.0.4esr). 10.0.2 download link redirected me to 12.

Hello. First you have to install kernelex 4.5.2.

Then you can install firefox. Then you

you have to right click on Firefox.exe and

click on the tab kernelex

choose for specific compatibility mode and

choose for windows 2000 SP4. And you can run

firefox.

But if I where you I would try the portable

version, because if it does not work you can

simply delete it. And you have no problems

with the Registry. It is also better to

use a release which is offical release then

a release that is not stable like a esr

release.

I thought I was on 4.5.2. In fact, I'm only at 4.5 Final, thanks for pointing it out.

Is the portable version also from mozilla? I can't find it in the official website.
