Big problems with kexbases v6 too here.

 

Explorer systematically crashes when trying to delete, copy or move files with PerigeeCopy shell extension:

Batchrun (I use  old v4.0.1.5 which I can't find on the web) doesn't execute programs anymore.

 

KernelEx appears otherwise fully functional  but as I use all the above all the time I didn't spend too much time testing further and quickly reverted kexbases to v5 and everything is jolly again.

I'll repost my original #74 below.

Original post #75 was Release 6 and changelog. I'll skip reposting this one. :thumbdown

Thanks for the detailed reports. I'll do some debugging, then probably just revert to 5. I'll be more careful in using 4.5.3beta code!

 

@MiKl - Are the Thunderbird 12.x and SeaMonkey 8 and 9 hangs a regression or progress compaired to 4.5.2 and recent updates? [answered!]

@loblo - You may remember from the Kexstubs discussion last year that we were unable to find a working definition for FindActCtxSectionStringW; its mere presence caused some apps to crash. ReactOS' Ole32.dll needs it, however, and so may some other apps. So I've exported it as FindActCtxSectionStrin_W so ImportPatcher can easily mod a file into working. FindActCtxSectionGuid is not currently known to be needed and might also be dangerous, so I've treated it the same way.

@tErmY - Thanks for testing. This is a BIG deal, however--regressions are not good. :no: Can I correctly assume that FlashBlock 1.5.14.2 worked with v.4 and just not v.5? Please define "seems to have broken" and be very specific! If you are also using Kexstubs, please note the order of your "contents=" line in core.ini (mine reads "contents=std,Kstub822,kexbases,kexbasen")

@Drugwash - I plan to do a cumulative delta source package at release 10. Hopefully you will be able to to build a full release for us at that time. Until then, don't feel obligated to manually merge and build every version. Maybe TmEE can help us with hosting or we can open a SourceForge account.

KernelEx v4.5.2015.4 by jumper
2015-01-14

Now working without Kexstubs:
Qupzilla 1.1.5
Slimboat 1.1.50 (with QtWebKit4 4.7.4 from Qupzilla 1.1.5)

I'm able to run these browsers. I get the same annoying messages as with QTWeb versions 3.3 - 3.7 "Java script problem...".

Flashplayer 16.0.0.287 which was just released works perfectly !

But, by the way, Shockwave 12.0.0.112 is the last version that actually works ?!

Kexbases bugfix:
 Kernel32:CreateProcessA (fix)
Good new: all crashes are in KEXBASES.DLL at xxxx:bfa56000 in the CreateProcessA code I merged from 4.5.3beta. I've rewritten the fix including removing the offending line of code.

Release 7: All occurred errors and e.g. strange behaviors of my OE 6 with Release 6 are gone.  :thumbup

Earlier today I downloaded SeaMonkey 2.6.1 ZIP and did some testing.

Comp. mode:  default or Win98SE, etc.

-> Websites are rendered as expected (mouse over links, etc.)  +  Flashplayer not working

Comp. mode: NT

-> Websites working but Not rendered as expected  +  Flashplayer not working

Comp. mode: Win2000 and higher

-> Websites working but Not rendered as expected  +  Flashplayer working !

 

On later versions of SM (2.7.x, 2.8.x, 2.9.x) there is no sound while playing flash videos and unfortunately these SM-builds still hang after a few seconds as I already posted earlier.

 

Edit&Follow up: I have received the info that the above is unfortunately not as new nor as awesome as I thought  :blushing: 

Much better is search&copy&paste NPSWF32_16_0_0_287.dll as NPSWF32.dll directly into the browsers plugin folder !

Comp. mode:  default or Win98SE, etc.

-> Websites are rendered as expected (mouse over links, etc.)  +  Flashplayer working

But for me this is still good news because that leaves 'only' the bookmark issue to be fixed.

I was mistaken about FlashBlock, however I did run into another problem. Finesse23.exe kept popping up with an access violation whenever I ried to run XnConvert. When I reverted back to 4.5.2 from Release_5.7 the problem went away.

My content line reads: contents=Kstub822,std,kexbases,kexbasen,K452stub

I just downloaded your Release.7.7

I'll try it out and try switching the order of the contents line.

I tried it again. I captured the FineSSE error if I can figure out how to attach it.

XNConvert (Zip) starts fine here in all comp modes but crashes most often right after I have dragged&dropped the first image into the app.

May be setting compatibility mode for SeaMonkey to Win98SE, and separately for flasplayer dll to Win2000 would help?
