  2. Hi im Steve

    Welcome to the MSFN!
  3. Why would MS release and update that literally does nothing more than break stuff? Passive aggressive attempt at forcing people to upgrade, maybe? c
  4. Many functions are removed so it suppose to happen
  5. Hello, MSFN!

    Welcome to the MSFN!
  6. Google removes "View Image" button

    Two things on this point, one is that in order for that disallow right-click (or pop-up on right-click) you need to enable javascript to run on that site. Second is that for Mozilla browsers there is a "View Image Information" option in the developer toolbar. When this is used, it will open a new page showing all images on the page where you can save-as or see the direct link to the image. There are some websites where this doesn't work, the ones I have seen even block this is some Japanese sites. I haven't looked into why that is. The only other issue is that some websites (notably wikia) are delivering images in WEBP extension and some of these sites that use WEBP you can't find the original image URL. Some you can just by choosing to view image or open image in new tab. Some will show the original filename you can save, some are in the URL and you have to remove attributes, others only point to the webp.
  7. Notepad3 v3.18.222.905 (2018-02-22)

    Hereunder an incomplete list of changes/differences: Changes compared to Flo's official Notepad2 (made in Notepad2-mod): https://github.com/rizonesoft/Notepad3#changes-compared-to-flos-official-notepad2-made-in-notepad2-mod Changes compared to the Notepad2-mod fork: https://github.com/rizonesoft/Notepad3#changes-compared-to-the-notepad2-mod-fork A list of all changes : Notepad3 All Changelogs: https://github.com/rizonesoft/Notepad3/blob/master/Build/Changes.txt The support for "XP" is dropped from version 3. Older Builds for "XP Users" can be found here : https://www.datumza.com/rizonesoft-notepad3/
  8. There are multiple things wrong here. User is ghosted and this thread is locked.
  9. Good catch. I missed that. And the original is better formatted, with some bold typeface etc. Cheers and Regards
  10. Notepad3 v3.18.222.905 (2018-02-22)

    I can't find any place where changes/improvements compared to Notepad2-mod are listed. When I look at both the Notepad2-mod and Notepad3 sites, and compare the "Changes compared to Notepad2", which they both list, the only differences I see are that Notepad3 adds syntax highlighting support for CoffeeScript and VHDL scripts. Notepad3 also has "prettier toolbar icons" and fixed some "bugs" (unspecified, and I'm not aware of any in the current Notepad2-mod release). [These differences are from the initial release announcement on 2016-07-20, but I have not been able to find anything more current.] Are those the only differences? Is there any other reason that anyone would want to use one over the other? By the way, for XP users, Notepad3 dropped support for XP after build 450, while Notepad2-mod still supports XP with the latest release, and even supports Win2K using builds r856 and earlier. Cheers and Regards

  13. I've just tried installing @heinoganda's modified KB4074852, and my second Ethernet connection has come back to life. Another symptom of the buggy oleaut32.dll!
  14. Notepad3 v3.18.222.905 (2018-02-22): The original Notepad shipped with Windows is probably the handiest program of all times, small, fast, without frills! Notepad3 tries to follow this principle, it’s a fast and light-weight Scintilla-based text editor with syntax highlighting. It has a small memory footprint, but is powerful enough to handle most programming jobs. Features include code folding, bracket matching, automatic indentation, word auto-completion, convert character encoding between various formats (ASCII, UTF-8, and UTF-16), newline format conversion (between DOS (CR/LF), Unix (LF), and Macintosh (CR) formats), multiple undo or redo, bookmarks, and regular expression-based find and replace. Notepad3 changes and improves upon many of Notepad2 and Notepad2-mod's features.

  15. In orher words, the US government is the last one to know, and they are pretty much p***ed about this. The interesting part is however the last sentence: The key here is WHICH antivirus software makers were notified several weeks in advance, only US firms or also non-US one, including - only as an example - the not-so-much-appreciated by government's guys Kaspersky Lab? jaclaz
  16. Hmmm. It seems a lot like a (senseless) re-post of a thread by TrevMUN with the date changed. The actual article linked to is actually dated April 12, 2017, and the leading "I'm not even mad, I'm impressed" and ending "pruno-PC" seems waay too distinctive to be a coincidence. So, I don't think that Dang Dong Ho is a bot of kinds (though bots often declare having Vista Business as OS, for *whatever reaons*), as those rarely change the dates, but if it is a human, WHY (the heck) did he made this re-post? jaclaz
  17. Agreed, also if you can find any fix for nvwgf2umx.dll crashing on selective pages on palemoonx64 please do let me know (no issues in IE9 and Firefox) might be a driver flaw itself though
  18. Tried it and preview has shown no expected result.
  19. Your fav version of Windows 9x?

    And, I think because of metro and features, they might extend it a little.

    I'm using it to not use windows 10!
  22. Hi all, thank you for this great thread! I found it only recently, after an indication on Bearwindows' http://bearwindows.zcm.com.au/winnt4.htm Updating Windows NT 4.0 page. I've been affected (and bothered) by the "WinNT4 cannot CHKDSK /F NTFS 3.x volumes" issue, and choose a brute force approach to overcome it: I re-formatted any affected volume with NTFS 1.2, and restored "castrated" versions of Win2k and WinXP. Is to say, I removed their native NTFS.SYS drivers, and replaced them with NTFS40.SYS from Win2k which was (originally) intended for use with WinNT4 only. NTFS.SYS in the backup directory needs to replaced as well, in order to prevent it's automated restoring. Works fine for Win2k, which perfectly boots from NTFS 1.2. WinXP, by contrast, doesn't ... had to install an additional, FAT32-formatted disk for WinXP boot. Like WinNT4 and Win2k, it now accesses NTFS 1.2 volumes without tampering them. I didn't imagine that Microsoft might ever have fixed this! If I only had known this thread earlier ... Everything is there: Michael's Mark4NTFS hack (in 2011, a friend suggested that only a few bits in NTFS 1.2's structures might be altered to make them unCHKDSKable, but he didn't know about Mike's tool, neither), Mark Russinovich's NTFSCHK (rather a complicated workaround, I think), and even an official fix. Microsoft's hotfixes 195352 and 199796 (for KB 872952) are still available under the location mentioned by Dencorso on Dec 6, 2014, in a "Service Pack 7" directory :-) Although I requested localized versions (among a total of 72 fixes for different WinNT4 flavors, and languages), the binaries are in pure english. It seems that the hotfix hasn't been truly localized. Does anyone know whether hotfixes are cumulative, i.e. whether KB 872952 fixes the earlier KB 326643 "NTFS May Not Detect When a CD or a DVD Is Removed" issue as well? As the latter also comes with a modified NTFS.SYS, it may be mutually exclusive with NTFS40.SYS if this was required by the first. (WinNT SP6a NTFS.SYS and Win2k NTFS40.SYS both read/ write up to NTFS 3.1 file systems, but the latter is more recent and a bit smaller.) KB 872952's content (autochk.exe, chkdsk.exe & fmifs.dll) reminds me of a patch which can be applied to WinNT4 SP1: with the respective WinNT351 SP5 versions of these files, WinNT4 cannot only read (by means of PINBALL.SYS) HPFS volumes, but also CHKDSK them. Helped a lot when OS/2 CHKDSK once failed to repair a damaged drive. Must not be run on HPFS volumes larger than 4 GB, as PINBALL.SYS supports only 4 GB and CHKDSK /F destroys HPFS structures on larger ones. Just as a note, presumably less interesting for most people here. As said before, great thanks for the hints in this thread! Greetings, Torsten
  23. @harkaz I will pm you once I return from school.
  24. windows 7 programs supported version

    Perhaps (when necessary) Windows 7 will have its own "blackwingcat" so to speak, as in maybe someone will create an extended kernel for the OS to allow it to run modern software, again, if necessary. Given the popularity of Windows 7, it won't be surprised if somebody does this, or something similar. How exactly do you come to that conclusion? I don't think this will be the case at all. Third party support for Windows 7 and 8.x will almost certainly decline simultaneously, not years apart. How do I come to this conclusion? I'll say it again... A large amount of software dropped support for XP and Vista simultaneously (or is in the process of doing so): Adobe Photoshop, Premiere, After Effects, Audition, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, VLC Media Player, Microsoft Office, Skype, Opera, Slimjet, SeaMonkey, iTunes, VMware, Paint.NET, and the list goes on. There were a few outliers here and there such as Pale Moon and a few DirectX 11 games, but these were pretty rare. This is more than likely due to the fact that Vista had a very small market share, so developers decided to simply drop Vista support along with XP when they were changing their OS support policies. Being a Vista user myself and having witnessed all of this first hand, I can confidently predict that this whole debacle will be repeated with Windows 7 and 8.1, probably sometime around 2021 (support for XP began to rapidly decline in 2015, one year after its EOL, which is the formula I'm using here). 8.1 has a very small market share compared to its predecessor, just like Vista did, whereas 7 is still very popular. Once software vendors begin changing their support policies again and Windows 7 gets left behind, I guarantee you Windows 8.1 support will be going down right alongside it, so if you're using 8.1 because you think it'll offer you better long-term third party support than Windows 7, you're probably going to end up disappointed.
  25. I'm not sure. I couldn't find any documentation on K-Lite Codec Pack's current system requirements from the K-Lite site itself. They simply state here that it works with Windows XP-Windows 10. I also don't have a Vista RTM (or SP1) installation to test it. Regardless of whether the software requires SP1/SP2, I'd wholeheartedly recommend that anyone running Vista install SP2, if they don't have it already. SP2 greatly improved Vista's overall performance and stability, and many of the bugs that plagued Vista RTM/SP1 have been alleviated in SP2, so there are absolutely no downsides to updating to SP2. The Platform Update only improved Vista further, adding support for things like DirectX 11, DirectWrite font rendering, DXGI 1.1, and many more Windows 7 APIs were added to Vista via this update, improving software compatibility for Vista users. SUMMARY OF CHANGES TO THE LIST FOR FEBRUARY 21/22, 2018: Added K-Lite Codec Pack to (ONG) "Multimedia" section. Updated Slimjet 10.x entry to Slimjet 10.0.13, as this is likely the final version of Slimjet 10 to be released, since it has been over 1 year since this release. Updated Opera 36.x entry to Opera 36.0.2130.80, as this is likely the final version of Opera 36 to be released, since it has been nearly 2 years since this release. Simplified additional information about various entries, eliminating unnecessary details and making the list faster/easier to read, and less overwhelming.
  26. I find it interesting that the original MS proxy servers did not pick up the breach, but it was only when they were switched to WebSense proxy servers that the situation was discovered. But likewise, I'm a bit impressed. Cheers and Regards
