  3. I suggest Repartition Bad Drive. It can isolate the defective cluster preventing access. A lot of disks (that would be worth of garbage) can be saved and still works like a charme.

  5. I've tried to install this update maybe 10 times and it's failed upon restarting to apply changes, every single time. Any suggestions?
  6. Hi there, first all wanted to thank @roytam1 for providing these builds! I wanted to share an auto-update script I wrote to automatically download the latest Weekly Browser Binary from here every Saturday and install it. I'm sure this isn't the best way to be doing this but worked well for me as a scheduled task every Saturday at 11:55 PM :) The script as it's written assumes the following but can be easily modified for your setup: 7-Zip is installed Your browser is located at C:\Program Files\palemoon GNU Wget 1.19.4 binary is located at C:\Program Files\palemoon_updater Script must be run on Saturday after the weekly binaries have been posted Essentially the script just downloads the latest NM28XP build and extracts it. Good enough for me. ::Set variables cd /d "%PROGRAMFILES%\palemoon_updater" set CURRENTDATE=%date:~10,4%%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2% ::End palemoon process taskkill /im palemoon.exe /f ::Download latest palemoon build wget -r -l1 -np -nd -A palemoon-28.5.0a1.win32-git-%CURRENTDATE%-*-xpmod.7z https://o.rths.cf/palemoon/ ::Extract archive to Program Files "%PROGRAMFILES%\7-Zip\7z.exe" x -y -o"%PROGRAMFILES%" *.7z ::Delete downloaded archive DEL /Q *.7z

    Audio driver for Realtek HD Audio Hardware?

    Credit where credit's due, of course. But bear in mind you've studied the driver and the hardware till it made sense for you, and then you brought that to the community and performed an impressive troubleshooting, together with @Dave-H: the persistence and patience both of you demonstrated is paradigmal of how it ought to be done, and fully deserving of the successful results reached. Of course the driver is important, but the whole process illustrated in this thread actually is just as much important as the driver.

    @dencorso: Thanks. Don't forget Watler made the Win3.x driver! I did only some minor things.

    Audio driver for Realtek HD Audio Hardware?

    Thanks again! The only reason I asked about the files in the folder with WAVEOUT.EXE was because I'm making up a zip installation package for this in case I ever have to install it again, and I wanted to make sure that I did have all the necessary files included.

    @Dave-H: Only WAVEOUT.EXE is needed, other files are the source code (16-bits Delphi). I don't know how @ABCDEFG made his picture, but your observations are right, only first two digits of four are changed by moving a slider of WAVEOUT. Actually there are 255 steps of 256. Your codec's Volume Widget has only 127 steps (7F in Verb 20C3B07F). No idea what the box is ment for you marked with an arrow. Only "0" ist working. It is sad there is no possibility to direct WAVEOUT directly to different Volume Widgets. I wrote once a HDAICOUT.HDA to listen Analog Audio CD, redirected through the codec to my Output Pin Widget. I could use WAVEOUT to set the Audio CD volume after changing the Volume Widget in HDACFG.INI, but for Digital Audio I had to use the Volume Control of - say - Mediaplayer. Luckily my headphone has Volume Control.
  13. from here i copied all relevant steps. they seem to be in this thread see last link above. but i cannot execute since not the right palemoon. can only test when SSE2 for PM 28 is ready. The experts must confirm. Here they are: Primetime CDM FF 49+ To be able to install and operate the Primetime CDM, add and/or set the following FF preferences in about:config (be careful, all of these are cAsE sEnSiTiVe!): media.gmp-eme-adobe.enabled (boolean; true) media.gmp-eme-adobe.forceSupported (boolean; true; FF 49.0+) media.gmp-eme-adobe.visible (boolean; true; FF 49.0+) media.gmp-eme-adobe.version (string, not integer; 17; required for manual install now that automatic install is no longer an option) media.gmp-eme-adobe.abi (string; x86-msvc-x86 (EDIT: x86-msvc-x64 for 64-bit XP users); not required, you can set it if you want to more closely mimic automatic install) media.gmp-eme-adobe.lastUpdate (integer; 1500000000; not required, you can set it if you want to more closely mimic automatic install) media.gmp.decoder.enabled (boolean; true) media.eme.enabled (boolean; true; defaults to false if you downloaded a DRM-free version of FF; ------------ To install the plugin: Open your FF profile folder. An easy way to navigate to it is by opening about:support in FF and clicking the Open Folder button next to Profile Folder. Inside the profile folder, create subfolder gmp-eme-adobe and open it. Inside gmp-eme-adobe, create subfolder 17 and open it. Unpack the Primetime ZIP archive into folder 17. Folder [your FF profile path]\gmp-eme-adobe\17 should now contain three files: eme-adobe.dll, eme-adobe.info, eme-adobe.voucher. After this, check the Plugins in your Add-ons list and you should see the Primetime plugin listed and ready for use. If you don't see the plugin there, make sure you've set all of the required preferences as described above and put the files into the correct subfolder. Restarting Firefox to complete the manual install isn't usually required, but try it if the plugin doesn't appear, (Also, remember that if you have more than one Firefox profile, you'll need to repeat these steps for each of them individually.) Set the Primetime plugin to Always Activate, Flash to Never Activate (not strictly necessary, but better for testing), and go to Youtube HTML5 video player check page. Both H.264 and MSE & H.264 should have blue checkmarks. You may want to try this test page (kindly suggested by @dencorso) or some Twitter videos to quickly make sure H.264 really is working (with Youtube you can get fooled by WebM getting played instead). In theory, you could uninstall Flash at this point, but realistically it's probably wiser for now to leave it installed and disabled in the browser. Personally, I installed the FlashDisable extension to quickly toggle Flash on some of the sites I frequent that don't support HTML5 video. Some of those insistently serve Flash video to desktop FF without even checking if it can do HTML5 video or not. That can be worked around by faking a different user agent string, but for now I've found it more convenient to just temporarily toggle Flash back on for them. FlashDisable supports the Ask to Activate setting, so you don't have to worry about other sites if you forget to turn Flash off again. ----- As you've likely heard, FF 52 ESR is the last version of the browser that's going to work on XP (unless some intrepid person forks a special version for us). In a way, this is a blessing in disguise, as Primetime support has been completely excised from FF 53 and Google's Widevine CDM doesn't have our helpful side-effect (and doesn't work on XP), but ESR 52 will be supported well into 2018. So, why not make use of it while we can, right? Note that HLS streaming is not natively supported with this plugin. It does work on sites coded to use some JS library or player to work with HLS, but not for directly playing .m3u8 video sources. You may want to keep an eye on developments with hls.js in general and firefox-hls in particular if a favorite site of yours falls into the latter category. ---------- http://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html ----------------- Adobe CDM Primetime CDM https://msfn.org/board/topic/175591-enable-mp4-h264-aac-html5-video-in-firefox-on-windows-xp-without-flash/?page=16&tab=comments#comment-1146709 ------------ https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1118889 ----------------------------------------------------- SSE2 SERPENT/MOEBIUS https://msfn.org/board/topic/177125-my-build-of-new-moon-temp-name-aka-pale-moon-for-xp/?page=132 IOW, with his latest updates to Serpent/Moebius, you can now install the Adobe Primetime CDM and use it for HTML5 video, instead of Serpent's built-in support. You may want to try this if you run into issues with the built-in support, such as distorted audio. If you "cheated" like I did and copied your Serpent/UXP profile over to Serpent/Moebius, and had Primetime installed on UXP, you're probably 90% of the way home. All you need to do is recreate the media.gmp-eme-adobe.visible boolean pref and set it to true. Primetime should appear in about:addons since the other prefs from your UXP install should still be there. Of course, if it doesn't work, check all the prefs mentioned in the Primetime thread. As with UXP, you'll need to set media.ffvpx.enabled to false to force Moebius to use Primetime for HTML5; otherwise Moebius will use its built-in support by default. -------------------------- For Moebius to get Primetime working, in addition to the prefs that have to be added in along with the gmp-eme-adobe folder there's a couple of obscure prefs that have to be changed back. Apparently even when copying over the profile from UXP to Moebius they're automatically given new values: media.gmp.decoder.aac media.gmp.decoder.h264 Change these from 0 to 2. Primetime instructions: https://msfn.org/board/topic/175591-enable-mp4-h264-aac-html5-video-in-firefox-on-windows-xp-without-flash/ Fortunately for me the built-in decoder works fine and is much preferable to using the buggy plugin-container.exe but it's an extra option to have just in case. -------------------------

    Seaching for Intel 218V XP 32bit driver

    I think, this one will work Intel X540-T2 (I prefer with only one RJ45 connector Intel X540-T1) Ethernet Adapter for 10 GBit, interesting, because I look for the same. Drivers in 18.3 packet from Intel for Win Server 2003 32 bit, so XP SP3 32 bit:)), Dietmar PS: Quick search via geizhals.de tells, that this are the only networkcards for 10 Gbit/s which work for XP 32 bit also.

    Seaching for Intel 218V XP 32bit driver

    10Gbit, so which cards are supported - i mean which consumer cards with rj45? NVME i know. https://email.seznam.cz/#inbox/43283
  19. Here is my "device managers" based on MS SetupAPI and Configuration Manager API. works with win95-98-me, winnt4, win2000, xp, 2003 and newer (mfcex3.exe works with nt 3.51) As for PNP in NT4 - if PNPISA driver installed and you have PNP ISA card detected some semi-PNP is working. requires cfgmgr32.dll setupapi.dll in windows/system(system32). setupapi.7z
  20. Hi, I understand what the CUs are but I thought MS still made individual updates available? For example the ULZ here allows one to download individual updates post the 2016 cumulative update. It actually has one of the ones I am interested in excluding but not the other because it was release just before MS create the first convenience rollup. I have also seen live stream patches that prevent specific updates (e.g. tracking/telemetry or meltdown patch) from being downloaded so the individual files must still exist, no? Thank you.

    How many will continue using XP?

    Not a Linux fan, though. q4os won't beat XP with it's almost exact looking theme (And NO i won't upgrade from XP! I Will use it until all of my compatible computers die )

    Seaching for Intel 218V XP 32bit driver

    10g Ethernet is an old standard at this point,and its been out for like 10 years even though it has became affordable now to make it more available. So there is hardware and drivers that support that for XP You can already boot XP from NVME but you need specific NVME that has its own bios like scsi.
  24. ruthan

    Seaching for Intel 218V XP 32bit driver

    Thank you very much, it just worked.. I wonder how such magic was done, just some ids replacement or some coding involved? Is this driver only for 218-V or it would work for all Intels 21x cards? Because im greeding, what about driver for some 10Gbit internet for XP? I think that they becoming finally available for reasonable price, and now when SSD are cheap and we are maybe to boot XP from NVME, that 15 years old 1Gbit speed finnaly starting to be bottleneck..

    Yes, I can add them to the new ntoskrnl, but before to start it, I need to hear your user's opinions, because there are users who want to keep the original nt4's ntoskrnl (and it is right,ahah), so I wait to see more comments on what do and then I will decide.
