    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.

    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

  6. Hi, I noticed that in the "Office Suites" list is not present: https://www.ssuiteoffice.com/freedownloads.htm I personally use Softmaker FreeOffice 2016 (this is also missing) but I would be interested in some feedback. TH.

    Here is a modified REG, see the comments. I have many non edited keys deleted, so do not use it as install ressource. It is used to switch from v201 to v211, Java program home path is "C:\Programme\Java". I hold the latest under XP working v151 MSI file for deinstallation in the personal program data path. Be carefull, it is all I edit in the registry, may be you need other / more / less key names...

    Win 7, no USB drivers

    Not a friend, someone I asked on a Thinkpad forum. Don't want to nag them. Anyway, this does not seem to involve any non-MS drivers, First thing I tried. same result, no drivers. I also tried unhiding all devices and then deleting all the USB devices -- did a hardware scan and back to the same "unknown devices" How do you "force" install? I try "update driver", give it the location of the unzipped files, and it just says "Could not find driver software".

    KernelEx 4.5 Core Updates (4.5.2016.17)

    I am logged in, but the download will not start...could you make it a mega or google drive download? That way we can access the files even when MSFN is down. EDIT: appears to be an issue with google chrome, it worked on firefox

    Missing email client in the Start Menu.

    But also New Moon is distributed as .7z package.............. In "StartMenuInternet" folder there is even a previous Basilisk installation. No reference in the "Mail" folder to Interlink. Then the string Pale Moon is present in the registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet" and in the registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail" remains the Thunderbird string.

    Latest Version of Software Running on XP

    I advise users who have installed previous versions from Videohelp to uninstall the previous version with registry cleaning and deletion of the DAUM folder in programs and then proceed with a new installation. I usually use Iobit Uninstaller portable + CCleaner. I have verified that an installation above the previous version increases the space occupied in HD.

    Missing email client in the Start Menu.

    yeah this could be the reason. since I use classic start menu in XP, never thought about this issue.

    Unofficial SP 5.2 for Microsoft Windows 2000 (WIP)

    You are right. I can confirm that something is indeed very wrong. I would actually say that this is a critical bug. I am pulling the FullPack from the download Archive for now. I will have to test whether it is another component butchering the installation, or HFSIP2000 itself. I am very sorry for the situation. I am not using Windows 2000 as my daily OS anymore, and no one had reported these problems before, so I had no clue. I will try to find a solution as soon as possible.

    Missing email client in the Start Menu.

    Your issue is most probably caused by the fact @roytam1's MailNews fork is being distributed as a .7z package and not as an installer ; an installer is needed to write the necessary registry keys so that Interlink/MailNews appears as one of the available installed mail clients ; I am on Vista myself (as I'm sure you know already ), but the related registry section should be quasi-similar in XP, too! In regedit, navigate to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients] : the "StartMenuInternet" subfolder should contain the choices for available browsers; the "Mail" subfolder should contain available installed e-mail clients (mine are Microsoft Outlook and Windows Mail - the latter is the default Windows client, akin to XP's Outlook Express 6); every mail client should have a "\Capabilities\StartMenu" subkey in order for it to appear inside Start Menu's "e-mail" selection; in my setup, I use Windows Mail as the default client, its subkey looks like: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Windows Mail\Capabilities\StartMenu] "Mail"="Windows Mail" Probably additional registry keys are needed for the StartMenu entry to function properly (i.e. actually launch the client...). What one could do is install the official Interlink client on Windows 7+ with a registry monitor ON during the installation process, write down the new registry keys as a result of the install and somehow export them to the XP machine where MailNews is being used... As with any registry manipulation, take due precautionary measures... Hope I've pointed you towards the right direction; I trust our own MSFN perennial XP experts to chime in with more...

    Possible to get Skype 8 up and running on XP?

    I spoof my Chromium 54 as Chromium 75 and it works. Just change the string at startup. I can just paste mine here if you want to.

    Audio driver for Realtek HD Audio Hardware?

    Yes. STAC9921.xml
  19. Blackwingcat told me why BSOD appears when installing the driver with the extended core. For an unknown reason, it must be for incompatibility, the IEEE 802.11ac drivers do not work in Windows 2000, but the one that I have is IEEE 802.11bgn that I do not know if it's the same (first capture) But this wireless has retrocompatibility with 802.11bg and 802.11b, also to put the bandwidth in 20Mhz only (second capture) And the inf file has code which we can edit to our liking with those options (third capture)
  20. Figured that's impossible; I found the following code at widget/windows/nsWindow.cpp: // Glass hit testing w/custom transparent margins LRESULT dwmHitResult; if (mCustomNonClient && nsUXThemeData::CheckForCompositor() && /* We don't do this for win10 glass with a custom titlebar, * in order to avoid the caption buttons breaking. */ !(IsWin10OrLater() && HasGlass()) && WinUtils::dwmDwmDefWindowProcPtr(mWnd, msg, wParam, lParam, &dwmHitResult)) { *aRetValue = dwmHitResult; return true; } Stock caption buttons are effectively disabled on Windows 10. The behavior is hardcoded in xul.dll. If one searches for Windows version checks, there are some other parts of the code that will behave differently depending on the detected Windows version.

    Audio driver for Realtek HD Audio Hardware?

    @UCyborg: Thanks a lot. At first sight STAC9921 seems to be fully implemented in Virtualbox. Is it possible to attach the saved xml, so a can take a closer look? Mine is 389KB (File -> Save Working Codec as -> STAC9921.xml). Did you test Mpxplay is pure MS-DOS?
  22. It's identical to the one that Firefox 60 ESR uses since version 56.2.8.

    Windows 98 as high quality video player

    > Could you provide a link to UMPlayer 0.95? I can only find 0.98 portable for Windows. 0.95 was current at the time; 0.98 should be fine. > This is a bit off topic, but how did you manage to get Slimboat Portable working on 9x? Huh? Slimboat is covered elsewhere. Ask with more details in the "Backporting" or "Really" thread if Google site:msfn.org doesn't answer it.
  24. > I am running Windows ME in WMware because I don't have access to my computer. VkrnlEx.vxd modifies memory but hasn't changed, so I don't see how WMware could be affected. >> Kexbases 4.5.2016.20 delta.7z > Can you try a different file host? The download link here is broken! Link works if logged in. > Any help? KernelEx 4.5.2 or later FULL package must be installed first. Then update with files from 4.5.2016.18 through .20 in DOS and reboot. Verify.exe needs KernelEx to be enabled on it with any mode other than the new "Minimal".

    Audio driver for Realtek HD Audio Hardware?

    I did try all possible IRQ values, it always sounds the same. Again, changing it is only possible on Windows 95, on Windows 98 I'm stuck with 11. I don't know how to tell whether IRQ is exclusive or not. I also tried HDAICOUT.HDA that comes with the driver, nothing changed. I tried Mpxplay, but only got silence.

    Audio driver for Realtek HD Audio Hardware?

    @Dave-h: I think you're right about activate.exe, maybe the name of a file with same funtion in one of Watler's other Audio drivers. But I don't know for sure. It doesn't seems important to me. Watler explicit mentioned HDARUN.EXE if a Multimedia Timer is needed, as in Win3.x Standard mode. Don't use HDARUN in Win9.x if possible, can give really bad crashes. That's my concern because you first had to use it as a sort of "Lender of last resort". HDARUN must be started manually after each startup, you will be aware if you are using it.
