  2. Planning to get this PC for a particular build

    Palemoon has an SSE1 build that works with most websites (but I don't think it'll run on 9x). I used to play games too on a P4 that had 2.6 or 2.8GHz. But for browsing websites that fart javascript all over your PC, I'd guess the old architecture on socket 478 ought to be avoided. Remember as well that any hyper threading on offer is gonna be disabled for 9x.

  5. 2018 Windows 8 Mega Tweaks

    Mega must've removed your files, because it says they're not available anymore from your download link. EDIT: It's now working.

    So you're linking Tweaks made by you from another forum that requires registry to access the file(s)? Couldn't you just place them here directly?

  10. Weird internet problem in Windows 95

    If you are not using a proxy server, uncheck the box to automatically detect a proxy server in Internet Options. Verify you have a valid IP address. If you have a valid IP address, verify that DNS works. You can do this by running these two commands: ping google.com ping
  11. Hi bigmuscle, I have one request for you, if you can. PLEASE give option in installer not to enable glass effect on any modern app. if not installer, please add guide/seperate file in how to section on your site which can disable glass effect on apps. i know there exists command in this forum you posted but since it is too huge to find (search also doesnt give results). also, while in settings app, the translucent title bar becomes opaque when any option is opened when maximised. many people prefer glass frame on modern apps but i do like modern app look. thanks.
  12. https://techcrunch.com/2008/11/03/new-intel-processor-does-away-with-front-side-bus-adds-third-level-of-cache-brings-back-hyperthreading/ In 2008, Spectre ruling began and until 2017 they did not discover it or publish it. To speed up CPU access to memory, the FSB or Front Side Bus (north bridge) was removed. The CPU integrates this function into its own chip and the error occurs. No need to test programs to see if your CPU is affected. Just know if your CPU has FSB or not.
  13. Java 1.6.22 fails on install

    Java installer errors occur very often. Usually they have nothing to do with 98/ME or KernelEx! A search for error 1330 in the web could help. There are some answers. I'm not sure anymore, if in this case an older Version of the Windows Installer causes errors. Latest version for 98/ME is 2.0.2600.2. I found Javafixer.org in the WayBackMachine: Java Fixer
  14. Kext: DIY KernelEx extensions

    I doesn't know anything about Ren'Py. But I tried to run your Tutorial.exe and the ren'py.exe of version 6.14.1 on two machines and both start and run on my ME/KernelEX 4.5.2 test system. They fail to run on my main computer ME/KernelEX 4.5.2016.17. It requires more tests to clarify, if it has to do with KernelEx 4.5.2016.17.
  15. Java 1.6.22 fails on install

    The OP is trying to install update 22 (the last version that should normally install without extra hodge podge) and you are telling him it's more recent than update 31!!!!
  16. POSReady 2009 updates ported to Windows XP SP3 ENU

    The release date your CPU is june 2008. If Sandy Bridge (2011) is 2nd Generation Intel Core processors: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Core#Sandy_Bridge_(2nd_gen)_microarchitecture-based and the CPU's Intel Core 2 Duo (2006) are part of the processor generations that preceded the First Generation Intel Core processors, https://communities.intel.com/message/519186#519186 your processor is part of the First Generation. In the best hypothesis. At the moment safe from the problem. I have not read an Intel Corporation note which states that having the FSB allows you to be safe from the problem.
  17. Well, there are two (distinct) issues. Microsoft installers are (obviously) backward compatible but not necessarily forward compatible. But besides that (which may be worked around with a trick or two, restoring the BOOTMGR, etc.) the real issue is that since the .wim based approach to install you (we, everyone) were deprived of the possibility of changing the name of the main Windows folder, which is now "Windows". Some earlier versions could be (with some small changes/tricks) installed in theory on the same volume in multi-boot (though it made no real sense and represented what we - highly specialized technicians call "looking for troubles"). BUT as said the good news are that starting from 7 there are ways to install the OS entirely inside a .VHD (native booting of it may need a "high profile" version of Windows 7), jaclaz
  18. Java 1.6.22 fails on install

    100s sounded very reasonable to me, its probably an underestimate to be honest. I don't really know for certain but I know 100 sounds really low to me. But thats the point. PS I know you can instal higher version with kex betas but the point is the wiki says that its not the other one that OP said it said. But I'm not gonna suggest to install higher version with kex to somone who can't get what pretty much just works tested by everyone who has tried.
  19. Funny... I uninstalled all hotfixes for the Compatibility Pack, SP3, and the Compatibility Pack itself, then reinstalled the Compatibility Pack and SP3. To my surprise, Microsoft Update is working fine, showing all available updates for the Compatibility Pack. Did one or more of the updates for Windows I installed a week ago fix the MU problem? Weird.
  20. Java 1.6.22 fails on install

    Destro, The last Java 6 version is update 45: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-archive-downloads-javase6-419409.html. I have it installed on my machine, it runs fine. Update 22 is not too high of a version, it's older than update 31. And if you don't mind me asking, how do you know the number of people who installed it successfully on 9x? Btw, in case anyone is interested I have JRE & JDK 7 Update 76, JRE & JDK 8 Update 92 and JDK 9 Beta 95 all installed on my machine. 7 appears fully functional, 8 and 9 have some stuff that doesn't work but still usefull as I can run some programs requiring either of those versions specifically.
  21. SUMMARY OF CHANGES TO THE LIST FOR JANUARY 21, 2018: Updated information about Advanced Chrome 54: the browser still receives updates as of Jan. 2018.

  22. That link points to the 32-bit version
  23. Windows 95C on a Dell Latitude D510

    Running USB 2, Keyboards, and/or Mice, on Windows 95 requires a very messy Hybrid Setup. You can run USB Keys at USB 1 rates using USB2STOP and my Driver from the latest XUSBSUPP.

  25. Windows 95C on a Dell Latitude D510

    yea, i agree with above, you have to disable usb emulation in BIOS on Dell laptops that were designed for XP and Vista if you want 9x to detect devices. As for CDROM, set your IDE controller to primary only then run add new hardware non plug and play and it should find the CDROM but DMA won't be available.
  26. Java 1.6.22 fails on install

    You should go back to the page and carefully read. The last version is 1.6.22 is too high of a version. You should also change your clock. Or roll your clock back to a reasonable date taht would be aplicable to the signature date. You need to select 2000 sp4 as the compatibility mode on the EXE file then you have to run it silently.(its both) Unless you already tried that. make sure you are using a full install package not the web version. Ok the instructions I gave just work and it has worked for 100s of people without failure so if it doesn't work for you than there is some other problem unrelated to this. http://kernelex.sourceforge.net/wiki/Sun_Java_Runtime_Environment Silent install: Start-->RUN C:\jre-6uxx-windows-i586.exe /s
  27. Yep, another program that helps to prevent Windows 10 from automatically update. this one comes from NoVirusThanks, a software developer that gave the world a few programs like Exe Radar Pro. that I've read a lot good about on security-related sites. Some might find it handy. http://www.novirusthanks.org/products/win-update-stop/ Personally I didn't test. It says it supports all 32/64 bit Windows from XP to 10, but I find Win7 built-in tools for that purpose quite better than the one in Win 10 Wilders Security thread (quite brief at the moment of posting).
