Hello everyone... I have a problem to run software designed for win xp etc... with windows 2000 SP4+UURollup2+Extended kernel project 2.4b6 (from blackwingcat blog). I want to install mpc-hc, but as you can see, it says me

This problem appears also with the last version of vlc media player...

Since you have extended Kernel, here is how to get those installers running:

 

1. Download KDW from here: http://www7.atwiki.j...0/pages/17.html

2. Extract the folder. Copy fcwin2k.exe to your desktop or another location where you will remember it will be.

3. Launch fcwin2k.exe. Drag the media player classic installer on the first textbox that says "File:"

4. Click "RunCompat". The installer will run.

5. Repeat for VLC.

 

Both apps run perfectly on unofficially updated Windows 2000, yet their installers won't. I tried this method myself and it worked well.

I tried to re-install windows 2000 with the last updates. (I used blackwingcat's updates with hfslip.)

Try using another compatibility mode first (ex. Windows Vista SP2). If still nothing, send me another reply and I will double-check it on my PC/VM.

Huh. I'll check on my machine and see. By the way, I believe I tested v. 1.7.4.

Use an older version of VLC Player, it'll work just fine.

And with the Application Compatibility Launcher that tomasz86 provides you should be able to get the latest VLC up and running.

Or theres a WMP codec pack online that supports Win2k out of the box.

Sorry for the late reply... I was sure that was how I got it working the first time. But, I checked today and, it didn't work. But, I checked PE Tools and figured out that the image version was set to 0006 0000(Windows Vista). So, I changed it to 0005 0000 (Windows 2000). Here is a procedure:

 

1. Download PETools from here:http://sourceforge.n...jects/pe-tools/

2. Extract it and run PETools.exe.

3. It will take a few seconds to load. When it does,go to Tools>PE Editor>Optional Editor.

4. With that, open the MPC installer. You will view an option that says: Major Image Version. The number there is 0006. You need to change it to 0005.

5. Save the changes and download appcomp.cmd (file attached). Remove the (.txt) extra extension so it reads only as AppComp.cmd.

6. Drag the MPC-HC installer on it and press ENTER. The installer should start normally.
