    Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

    It is - if you spoofed 32-bit Win 7 or later in your browser's user agent string. (Actually, spoofing a 32-bit browser on 64-bit Windows would probably work too, but I didn't try that.) Vista and XP are offered older versions. 64-bit Win 7 is offered a 64-bit version, of course. BTW, on Firefox or its derivatives (NM/Serpent/MyPal/Seamonkey/etc.), make sure to use/spoof version 52, since later versions don't permit any plug-ins besides Flash. Edit: BTW, does anyone know of a good Silverlight test page (other than Amazon Prime)?
  3. In case someone stil using it under XP SP3... http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/ftpk/2019/01/silverlight_a6ea175976edbdeeddfbfb65e64d9d1cfded84a1.exe Untested.
  4. Perhaps you may find this helpful; I know it's not the same motherboard but, it is similar for sure and is confirmed.
  5. Today
  6. Thank you for confirming this bluebolt. PS: I am curious as to your methods on getting Win2k to work on that motherboard? I've tried a few times on my Sabertooth X99 board but, I get a blue screen even with IDE mode enabled. Although, I'll humbly admit I don't have much experience with Win2k at least not enough that is lol. Any help / info on what you did to get it working, like steps and such would be very helpful.
  7. Windows 95 is now 23 years old, but you can still use it for simple tasks. There is some software that is supported on windows 95. What hardware is compatible with windows 95? Computers from 1995 to 2000 will run windows 95 well. However Any CPU faster then 2.5 GHz will not work without problems to make it work without problems you have to use patch for faster CPUS Download link: https://winworldpc.com/download/c39dc2a0-c2bf-693e-0511-c3a6e280947e I highly recommend to use windows 95 osr 2.5 because it is the latest version of windows 95 and works best. Running Windows 95 in a VM is also an option. When running Windows 95 in VM i recommend to use VMware And Microsoft Virtual PC 2007. However in VMware screen doesn't fill 100 % when using in full screen and virtual pc works only in windows vista and 7 and doesn't support windows 8 or 10 (it is possible to use virtual pc in windows 8 or 10 but it requires patching vpc's files.). Note: If you use windows 95 in VM you will need cpu patch too. If you using VirtualBox You have to download and install Scitech display Doctor Download link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1faF9TlRYkGQElyIFIUPwsmLMo4A_RPZs/view?usp=sharing Also i will need to setup network manually; Network Setup (Only for VirtualBox users) 1. Go to start control panel and add remove hardware. 2. Then windows will prompt you to scan for devices choose no 3. Select Network adapters and search for Advanced Micro Devices and select it. Then find AMD PCNET family ethernet adapter {PCI&ISA) and click next. 4.After installation and reboot go to control panel and click network. 5. Click and add and choose Protocols and add TPC IP. 6.Done Note: if after setup network adapter has exclamation mark remove it and do the steps. Done with basics now we can move to the supported software and tasks.

    New Opera Browser for Windows 2000

    FWIW there has been a rather unexpected update to Silverlight! It's now 5.1.50918.0. It's just an update for the Japanese calendar change. I was offered it on Windows 10, and downloaded the installer and manually installed it on XP, so I don't know whether MS Update is offering it on POSReady hacked XP or not.

    Believe it or not, 5.1.50907 may not be the final release. On Win 7, WU just today updated Silverlight to 5.1.50918! Edit: It looks like one of those updates to handle the new Japanese era (like the Office 2010 updates M$ keeps fouling up), so it may or may not be compatible with XP. I checked MU on my XP VM. The update wasn't there, but since POSReady '09 is still supported, it still might appear in a day or two. Edit 2: Downloaded the new Silverlight to my XP VM and installed it. Does anyone know of a good Silverlight test page?

    New Opera Browser for Windows 2000

    A bit late, but has anyone managed to test this browser on vanilla w2k?
  16. The browser seems more aggressive in disabling incompatible extensions lately.

    BM, it's need to add UxTSB.dll injection into SystemSettings.exe It's only a question of time, when MS remove classic personalization panel at all. So to apply themes with 3rd party visual styles via modern Personalization Panel, UxTSB.dll must be injected in it too.
  18. I ran a quick test this evening, installing Windows XP 64-bit on the ASRock X99 Extreme4 mainboard I use for Windows 2000 Professional. I ran nLite 1.4.9.3 to integrate 5eraph's update pack and IE8 Addon, and Fernando's AHCI SATA and sSATA drivers. I tested Microsoft Update to get the .net frameworks and updates, just to see that it (MU) worked okay. I think the screenshot has all the other information. The OS installation and so forth was trouble-free. I have no plans to pursue this further for now, but wanted to post this brief FYI before I button up this hardware with W2K Pro.
  19. I know this question probably is posted in wrong section in the forum because it's about Windows 7. But I have been doing a lot of internet searching and I found practically nothing about this anywhere. So I want to ask here because I think the knowledge about this is highest in this thread. It would be very interesting if @bigmuscle or maybe anyone else here can answer my question. My question is if it's possible to get the titlebar text center aligned in Windows 7? I mean like it looks like in Windows 8 and also possible in Windows 10 with Aero Glass for Win8.1+. I guess dwm.exe must be edited in some way to make it work. I copied dwm.exe to desktop with help of Raw File Copier Pro https://www.novirusthanks.org/products/raw-file-copier-pro/. Without it I couldn't either copy or edit the file, not even in safe mode. I have no programming knowledge but I can edit dwm.exe in hex editor HxD https://mh-nexus.de/en/hxd/ if someone knows exactly what's need to be edited to make the text centered. I hope the solution is that easy to only edit dwm.exe. But I have no idea, maybe much more is required to make it work.
  20. when you say the dma buffer size, are you talking about the amount of cache memory that normally comes on storage devices, for example, the typical 1 TB hard drive these days would have 64 MB of cache memory? i may have missed these "tweak" in the past, but is it also the setting in device manager for direct memory access controller as i do always set this to the max 64 setting, do you know what the reason is for not being able to set more than 60 MB for the setting? i personally always used 44000 for the minimum and maximum file cache ( for 1 GB systems ) with "maxphyspage=40000" and never ran into problems for 98SE systems. hopefully i am right on this but please someone correct me if i am wrong but i believe the these two file cache sizes just need to be a minimum of 1/24 of the ram, and because some problems tend to arrise with large vcache and being unnecessary in my opinion, i simply set it to the lowest possible and this seems to also "fix" another unknown weird issue that arises from having the "Defualt" settings, that's a long story and i don't really want to go and explain it. i may be wrong on this but it almost seems like this vcache aspect may be similar to superfetch or prefetch in the newer windows, only for 98SE, it has also a problem vulnerability, and on faster systems, it would seem unnecessary to have a large one in general.

    NT4 on hp v2665us keeps freezing

    like i mentioned previously, originally the laptop comes with windows xp, i am not sure on the exact service pack, but it is mainly for xp, i was never able to check hp's / compaq's site in the older days when they may have had it up on their actual site. i was hoping someone had the knowledge to fill in the other questions i asked. i simply wanted to install NT4 on the laptop so i can test some things specifically for NT4.

    The k-lite codec pack makes the decoders like LAV available to the system by letting it handling the decoding. This way, every programme that relies on DirectShowSource can use them. Potplayer doesn't rely on DSS as it uses its own decoders based on the Open Media Codecs, however it does support DSS if the user specifically selects it. By the way, I'm glad that you are using Potplayer. As you can see, it uses less resources than VLC 'cause VLC is based on a very old core engine which was fine many years ago, but not nowadays. Besides, if you dig into the Potplayer settings, you'll notice that you can even choose how you are going to pass the data to the GPU (OpenGl, D3D9 ecc) which is very important for a player for me.

    NT4 on hp v2665us keeps freezing

    I looked this up and saw that this laptop shipped with Widows XP SP2, correct? Do you know if NT4 is officially supported, and if not, what other versions are supported on it?
  26. I have two JM20330 based mSATA to 44 pin IDE adapters that I try to use in an older 600 MHz SFF Compaq PIII (turn it into a router), and I can't get them to boot. After I boot from a floppy, I can partition, mark active, and the format the SSDs, ( format c:: /u /s ) but the system just doesn't boot from the SSDs. (no error message, just infinite wait) Any idea on what may be going on and how to fix it?

    Thank you for letting us know. Should I add it to my previous post?

    IE10, Chrome 51, Firefox 54, WMP 12, Office 2013....

    Your link basically says that Slimjet is as bad as Chrome (perhaps a bit worse). If Chrome contains "spyware," then a browser containing spyware now has 63 percent market share. OP yoltboy01 evidently likes Chrome very much, and would go to great lengths just to use a slightly different but still obsolete version released in 2016. Personally, I would never recommend "Advanced Chrome."
