    Internet Explorer 11 will be available for Windows 8!!

    Yeppers - I learned since that's not the reason .... but ..... Are you saying that if I restore IE 10, and then install a February 2019 security rollup - I CAN upgrade to IE 11? For real? I have installed the latest IE10 rollup, so it sounds like (from your description) all I need to do is restore IE10 (which would mean that my first reason is actually in part - true after all)

    Internet Explorer 11 will be available for Windows 8!!

    that's not the only reason, Jody. if you read MS support KB article 4492872 about IE11 for Server 2012 / Windows Embedded 8 Standard: need to install at least any of the Feb. 2019 updates for Win8/Server 2012 or newer before attempting to install IE11 (and restore the IE10 feature from Add/Remove Components). edit: unlike the IE11 downloads for Win7 SP1 / Server 2008 R2 SP1 which are in EXE files, the IE11 downloads for Win8 are packaged in MSU files
  4. Nothing NEW here; I'm starting to get the impression your web searching skills are falling behind : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Archive/Add-ons/Bootstrapped_extensions aka "restartless" addons; according to the page itself, Regards

    New network: 10.0.0.1 or 192.168.0.1..?

    Na man there's no specific reason why you should use 10.0.0.1 over any other IP address. You can SETUP ANY IP ADDRESS THAT YOU WISH TO!!! iF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT 10.0.0.1 CLICK HERE

    Possible to get Skype 8 up and running on XP?

    Skype Web works even though you admit you're on WinXP? Earlier reports said you had to lie & say you were on Windows 10

  8. My confusion results from the fact that it preserved XUL APIs for "classic" add-ons. In fact, Classic Add-Ons Archive had to make a special kludge for Waterfox to run in multiprocess mode. There would be no point in that if XUL add-ons couldn't be used.... After my last question, I sort of hate to ask, but what the heck are "Bootstrapped" add-ons, and why does anyone need them? The WebExtensions API, I dig, because of the aforementioned multiprocess mode. But another new add-on type so soon after WE? It's really starting to sound like Mozilla is just making random changes for the sake of making random changes.

    Audio driver for Realtek HD Audio Hardware?

    I tried the new file, and it seems to work fine. Strangely, the quality on some of the system sounds seems a bit rough now, but I don't know if that's worse with the new file or not. Playing music tracks, both MP3 and WAV, sounds fine though. I'll have to try and do a comparison. I'm definitely not using HDARUN, which doesn't sound like a good idea from what you were saying! EDIT: I tried reverting to the older hdaicout.hda, and the sound quality is exactly the same. It's mainly the system sounds like the ringing tones and chimes which sound rough. One thing I have noticed is that with the old file there are two "pops" from the speakers as the desktop loads, with the new one there's only one!

    KernelEx for Win2000

    Blackwingcat, could you tell me which versions of Intel and AMD AHCI and VGA drivers from Windows Legacy Update are the most stable and well-tested for now, please?
  13. I just downloaded this and ran it, and although apparently nothing happened visually, it did work. I thought those files didn't work on XP any more? Anyway, I guess that's the last one. Microsoft Update offered a definition update, but always failed with error 0x800700F, which is something to do with failing a licence check. MSE itself goes through the motions and then fails with an unspecified "network problem". The definition being offered by MS Update was 1.293.20.0, which is later than the one I just installed, which is 1.291.2489.0. I don't know which one is actually current (there seems to be a big gap between them!) but MSE seems happy at the moment that it's up to date.
  14. Ok that looks better. --) Wonder how long before Mozilla starts complaining about copyright or something.
  15. Hi Pythoners, I have quite an unusual problem here. I have newest python 2 and python 3 installed together with python launcher and PIP, all coming from newest, official installers from python.org. And I wanted to install Spyder IDE for them. For various reasons I am not going with Anaconda, as they suggest, or any other python distro like python(x, y) or WinPython. I decided for the PIP way spyder3 went smooth, I just needed to: pip3 install pyqt5 pip3 install spyder And it works like a charm. Hovewer, spyder 2 is not that easy. For pyqt for python 2 is not avaliable via pip, so it looks like buildig from source, as described here, is the only way that will work for me. Unfortunately, it requires having sip for python, which is also not available via pip and one have to build using source code. And this is the moment I am quite lost. I managed to run configure.py using python 2, all paths were valid, I managed to find makefile files it created... and don't know what to do next. SIP installation instruction assumes that reader can use "make" command and is experienced in C\C++ building, and I'm not at all. I googled a bit and tried to use nmake, simply passing my makefile as a parameter, but only got a response "cannot build" What I need a hand with: First, I would like to get that built and installed. this case simply got me curious. Secondly, I don't even know if this will allow me to install spyder2 using pip2, and this is my ultimate goal. My setup is Win10 Enterprise, major build 1703, and a Visual Studio express 2015 - and "enterprise" means, I cannot use any other. Any help is welcome.

    List of unsupported feature by/for Windows XP

    It is just as stable as vanilla Windows 2000 and still very fast, though competing with Server 2003 x86 (and apparently XP x64) in performance. On my ThinkPad T60 I get "unknown hard error" dialogs from time to time, though the OS never crashes, and the software rarely does.

    Audio driver for Realtek HD Audio Hardware?

    @Dave-H: I finished the Realtek ALC883 HDAICOUT.HDA. If you'de like to test: rename your working version to HDAICOUT.OKE , rename the new file to HDAICOUT.HDA , copy to your %windir% and reboot. Please attach HDAICIN.TXT Dave-H_ALC883_Hdaicout.hda.200

    And just how stable is Windows 2000 with KernelEx? Does it slow down the OS any?

    List of unsupported feature by/for Windows XP

    All of @roytam1's browsers work with the extended kernel, as do most XP-compatible software titles, and a few smaller utilities for Windows 7 and up (Throttlestop, Acrobat Reader DC off the top of my head). The universal Boingo WLAN client supports more EAP methods than the XP SP2 native client. If you don't do DX10+ gaming or need modern MTP support, Windows 2000 still goes very far.

    WinNTSetup v3.9.4

    Hi JFX: I think I saw a single file download for "Recompress Compact OS" for 7 and 8.x, some time ago, but I can't find it, maybe it was lost during server crash, do you still have it? alacran
  21. Hi, Is it possible to change Windows 10 Setup Background. If possible, how ?

    How usable is Windows 2000 these days? I actually preferred it to XP (that was until the x64 Edition came to be)

    Microsoft security essentials and Windows XP

    So even the 4.304.4 version won't work after this? I was finding that on my folks system (especially when browsing) that the CPU fan went into high gear (same for my old Vista system). comodo improved that. For those who stayed on MSE, was it still slow?

    Microsoft security essentials and Windows XP

    It seems that Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows XP support has been dropped. Latest XP-compatible definitions https://definitionupdates.microsoft.com/download/DefinitionUpdates/VersionedSignatures/AM/1.291.2489.0/x86/mpam-fe.exe Attention: Link will not live long, download ASAP if You need it.

    Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

    That are good starting point. I made use of little registry mods. Generally in a fresh installed XP i always launched the last working XP installer (151/152) to install JAVA and then brutally extract the new .exe installer (jre-8u211-windows-i586.exe) and replace it in the programs file. The dream would be a little cmd workaround that automate the process to get last updated java.
  26. Yours lack the processor architecture bits, so it's actually: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0

    Win 7, no USB drivers

    Yep, that's it. Maybe then they are not the "right" drivers. Please try again as in the post https://msfn.org/board/topic/178354-win-7-no-usb-drivers/ But click on the tab "Details" to get the PCI\VEN & DEV. This madness usually happens when there is a (bad/wrong/whatever) driver included in the OS that "prevails" on the new one, but shouldn't happen in your case because you are in Code 28, i.e. no drivers installed. You can still try with pnputil: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/devtest/pnputil-command-syntax https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/devtest/pnputil-examples but before that let's check the actual PCI\VEN & DEV of the "unknown device" jaclaz
