Just a curiosity.  Does 7-Zip have compatible versions, or is that just unicode/NT?  And are those AVG versions still able to be updated?

7-zip 9.20 works awesomly, forgot to add that to my list. Thanks :-)

Never tried newer beta/alpha versions however.

Not sure about the AVG definitions... very highly doubt it though, because AVG 7.5.524 was released early 2008.

I use v9.20 on XP and Vista.  It works with RAR format too, so now I don't even install WinRAR.

 

Wow, so it works on 9x/Me too.

So how compatible with the modern web (HTML5, etc...) is Opera 9x and 10x?  (I liked v10.10).  Is it good enough to get around in?

Well, that's a hard question. It depends. You can get around pretty good, especially by turning off javascript (most people don't want to do that though). But really, the only way to know is to try it and see how much you like it. Or I should say, how much functionality are you willing to lose?

Turn off javacript and all those pop-up windows, ads, and other junk disappear. But then so do some other things :-/

Functionality wise, Opera 10.63 is your best option for plain Windows 9x.

Actually I tried installing v10.10 on my work PC (XP sp3).  A few things don't work, but Facebook does.  Google and Duck Duck Go search has some misalligned graphics.

That's a recent thing they did with Google. A week ago there was no issue. Opera versions 11-12.02 will work on 9x/Me with no issue. The only thing I fear now is that presto engine is dead :puke: . That was the fastest and most old hardware supporting engine there was. I really hope it becomes open source so the free web (and 9x) can live on.

I know :-)

This is going to be a non KernelEx list. Just because it's simpler that way. And besides, there's already another thread / list of "KernelEx Compatible Programs."

This is just my attempt to do a final, comprehensive overview of the state of Win9x programs. Which includes some older and newer programs, and when necessary lists the final version of certain programs.

Be aware that 7-Zip does not currently support the new WinRAR5 format, yet.  So you still might need WinRAR if you receive any archives that were compressed in the WinRAR5 format.

 

Cheers and Regards

To be fair, if someone sends me a file compressed in the new WinRar 5 format, it plainly means that the contents of the archive are not interesting/irrelevant.

Using a proprietary format, that only a given Commercial software can open/access properly, when interchanging data is clearly something that only a complete moron would do.

Also the WinRK rolz is not supported AFAIK.

Opera 10.6x is more stable, and doesn't freeze as much. It has better aligned graphics too. The only browser I currently trust on NT 4.0.

A small contribution: I just tried the $ AXE hex editor software (shareware, now abandoned, the website says it is for OS Win 95 to XP)
I found that AXE version 3.3 runs well in my system (Win98SE with USP V2.1 and wihtout KernelEX), but AXE version 3.4 crashes; AXE version 3.4 runs well in WinXPSP2. Could you confirm this (the AXE V3.4 crashes in Win98SE)?
Some info: www.brothersoft.com/advanced-hex-editor-15771.html
 and https://web.archive....axe/index.shtml
AXE V3.4 installer (https://web.archive..../installAXE.exe)
AXE V3.3 installer (https://web.archive..../installAXE.exe)
Kind regards.

What are the actual reasons (if any) to prefer Axe over (say) Tiny Hexer, HxD, Frhed or XVI32? :unsure:

to jaclaz: because with AXE you can view a file in a graphical manner setting the column width, and seeing the file like a bitmap field, and then you can graphically discern different file areas of your interest (for example like editing graphical resources in dos games).

I see :), like the graphical view here?
https://web.archive....reenshots.shtml

I believe that Hex Edit has a similar feature, called "aerial view":
http://www.codeproje...ary-File-Editor
http://www.hexedit.com/index.html
but cannot say if last version working with Win9x (if any) has it.

Hexplorer:
http://sourceforge.n...ects/hexplorer/
definitely has it (and should be Win9x compatible) :unsure:

free---Clam sentinel (Windows 98/98SE/Me/2000/XP/Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8)-- enables real-time scanning with ClamWin and adds its own heuristic scan engine to detect malware for which ClamWin does not yet have signatures.

Sometimes I need to perform measurements on digital images (distances, angles, bending radius, mouse trip).
Here I want to share with you some small freeware tools, very useful in my opinion, for simple geometric measurements without having to install huge design programs, and a color capture program.
Scale V2.0: www.sgrillo.net/scale.htm
Meazure V2.0 Build 158: www.cthing.com/Meazure.asp , download at http://www.oldware.o...hp?download=791
Mouse Odometer V2.0 by TOGGLE BOOLEANS  http://web.archive.o...atful/games.htm

HP RecordNow 4.56 could be added to the list. The program itself 'requires' an older version to be installed but unzipping the installation file and installing it via MSI will install the program with no faults and does not need a previous version then. It's a great program and works with many of the new drives. I've used it for years and it does data disks, exact copies, music CDs, and ISO images (use the data disk option and it'll ask you if you want to create a disk with the image). It also burns to DVD drives as well. It does not require anything special from HP either, it just works.

As a viable alternative to Process Explorer there is Nirsoft CurrProcess v1.13, a freeware Process Viewer downloadable at www.nirsoft.net/utils/cprocess.html
A newer version of WordTabs V3.30 is downloadable at https://web.archive....dtabs/wt330.zip
