Win2k Kernel32 rewrite progress

16 posts in this topic

It's been about a year since I've posted, but I've been quietly working on my rewrite of kernel32.dll on and off. I've gotten it to the point where I'm pretty confident that it's finally free of any bugs :) I've posted the source and DLL here:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/jea4ca8d7f4g3yj/Windows2000-kernel32-rewrite-v6.zip

I'm thinking that the next logical step would be to start on a rewrite of ntdll.dll, which I hope will be easier (since it's smaller). I'm not even using Win2k all that much anymore, but I still like the idea of eventually being able to build our own Win2k kernel that can run on modern hardware.

Nice :)

Maybe you could spend a few words listing the features you changed/added/updated...

@WildBill: Man, you're alive!!! :yes:
That's great news!!! But you might have posted from time to time just to let us know that!

And you brought us a newer version of your kernel32! Wonderful! Thanks a whole lot! You do rock! :thumbup

Live long and prosper! :)

This is legal right? If so, it would be cool to see this on github/bitbucket/*.

This is 100% legal. But as far as seeing it on github/bitbucket/*, don't hold your breath. WildBill has posted the full sources of his re-creation of Win 2k kernel32, together with the compiled executable. He did it alone, didn't ask for any help and freely gave his results to the comunity. What else do you want? A pole-dance? :crazy:

I think it's awesome that this has been released, and I was thinking it would be easier to have many people working on patches to kernel32 to make more applications work. I didn't want to make a repository myself since it's his source.

Yes. As long as it was clean-room written from scratch without using any leaked Win2K source code, then it's perfectly legal. ReactOS and Wine fall into the same category.

Wow, this is amazing! I never dreamed someone would be able to completely re-implement kernel32.

One cannot redistribute any MS file. Therefore, any modified MS file cannot be legally redistributed, either. No exceptions.

That means KernelEx, unofficial SPs etc are illegal ?

The 98 KernelEx by Xeno86 is not a MS file, nor does contain any MS Files.

My KernelEx updates also contain no Microsoft files or code. And Ley0k's additions appear to be clean, too.
