  1. Past hour
  2. It's because of the recent change in the hostname; "o.rths.cf" => "o.rths.ml"
  3. Today
  4. Hey Guys, My roommate has a HP Compaq 6510b laptop with Intel Centrino Duo processor. It runs extremely buggy and slow. It can't even start a program or show files in drives. Even clicking on notification bar takes few minutes. It's running Windows 7 x64. There are some viruses here and there but I can't see much CPU usage by them in Task Manager. Or they might be using all cpu by hidding even them in taskmgr. CPU usage is normally shown as 7% to 20%. I have used Ccleaner to clean it but with no benefit.
  5. I think iTunes' sign in function stopped working. It gives -50 and 0x80090302 error.
  6. Try using a PE editor to change the subsystem version, PPEE for instance.
  7. Gparted also does a great job at checking disk errors. I got it booting with Win 7 + Clonezilla + Slackware, using Clover as my UEFI boot manager.
  8. KexBases23 has introduced an error in the LAVFilters-0.70.2-16.exe install (see image). OK with KexBases22. There is an alternate to Msvcr80 31113 or 40209 as msvcrt. BlackWingCat's Msvcrt from Windows2000-KB935839-v22l-x86-ENU works if Ntdll > NtClose is linked to Gdi32 > DeleteObject. Tested with Miro Video Converter & VLC3 all OK. There is only one appliction that I know of that needs depreciated _ctype which was an early ROS explorer.exe. If _ctype function is needed then BlackWingCat's 2012 msvcrt is an alternative. Sadly BlackWingCat's wrapped Msvcrt.dw7 vs from Dx9W2kFx.zip did not work. Msvcrt was wrapped with Msvcr80 to provide a better Msvcrt with more functions. As extras I have RP9 running but the Start menu folder icons and drive icons changed back to originals instead of Win7 ones of which I had configured. This is due to KEX app settings as I copied reg settings over from a drive to which this anomaly happened & the same result occurred. I found it about impossible to get back so I left it & used these settings to make it look better https://msfn.org/board/topic/131040-revolutions-pack-97/?do=findComment&comment=1169798
  9. I did, but after loading it in pemaker again, subsysversion remains at 6.1. I guess someone else has to try it then...
  10. Did you try clicking "save" in the upper-right corner? I had never had such an issue on either NT 5.x or 6.x.
  11. I think I'm too dumb to use it, tried changing the SubSysVersion to 6.0 using the change button and also putting it in the main window of pemaker, even tried running it as admin, but always it keeps switching back to 6.1 for whatever reason.
  12. There does appear to be a problem when applying FIX95CPU to a full OSR1 installation from CD/scratch. RTM installations later manually updated to OSR1 should not be affected. FIX95CPU tests for the existence of FILEXFER.EXE to determine whether the version of 95 being patched is RTM or OSR2... FILEXFER.EXE does not exist in RTM, but does in OSR2. Apparently it exists in OSR1 as well. Looks like I will need to find another file to test for to make the determination. Anyone who may have further input on this please chime in. On the other hand, if you're not getting anywhere with 95 RTM or OSR2 either on this machine I'm not certain what other problems may be in play. OSR2 should definitely work, even if the others don't.
  13. this pref is enabled by default. did you change it in about:config?
  14. No issues thus far with both New Moon 27 and 28 and this forum. The only thing is dom.storage.enabled needs to set to true to post here.
  15. Basically he's right. The only thing I'd add is that you don't need to use Win 7 to partition your new HDD; you can use third-party tools as well. I gave a couple of links; he mentioned MiniTool's Partition Wizard. I don't know if Partition Wizard will run on XP but it will definitely set up your HDD correctly. You just shouldn't use the tools that come with XP to partition your HDD. Once partitioned, you can format your HDD with XP; if the partition is aligned, an NTFS file system will be aligned too due to the way NTFS is designed.
  16. Try blackwingcat's PEMaker and change the PE subsystem from (presumably) 6.1 to 5.0 or 6.0.
  17. I've tried installing it on Vista, and while it indeed installed, after launching, Windows complained that it's not a valid Win32 application: I guess the same will happen under XP.
  18. OK, so that's Quantum-based with the "Photon" interface, right? My first thought was, "that couldn't run on XP;" but: On Windows 7, it certainly looks like Photon (and a bit too much like M$ Edge). I can't test it on XP until Monday; in the meantime, can anyone confirm? https://www.comodo.com/home/browsers-toolbars/icedragon-browser.php (Warning: a dialog box will pop up offering to install "Comodo cloud Antivirus" and change your home page and default search engine to Yahoo on all supported browsers. You must click the teeny "Decline" button if you don't want to do that. Seems a bit PUPpy to me....) A Quantum browser would have drawbacks; the chief ones being no legacy extensions and no NPAPI plug-ins (except Flash). Still, a Quantum browser on XP would be quite a feat.
  19. Yesterday
  20. I suppose it is better than having the nag surreptitiously installed as a scheduled task which is what happened with XP (Pro 32bit). I have other Win7 Pro installations and not, at least not yet, been prompted to install the "Important" nag update on them. This made made me suspicious so I've checked all scheduled tasks and Customer/Windows Experience opt out settings and am pleased to report found nothing. But just the fact the update nag has been presented as "Important" is going to make me even more careful with my update checks from now on.
  21. different technologies. if you can make rust creating XP compatible binaries, and if you can make firefox > 53 XP compatible, please tell me how to do that.
  22. Newmon is slowly loading scripts for google services. You have to wait until the gmail has completely loaded. When you switch faster than gmail loads - then you have a heavy CPU load and newmon freezes. This also applies to other modifications of the palemoon - serpent, i.e. mypal, and also the original palemoon itself. Another firefox comodo icedragon fork on FF 65 has quick startup and fast gmail support. Neither serpent, any newmon and mypal have a quick start. Icedragon you will polish, add a lot of extensions and amaze with speed. It's much faster than firefox 70.0, than chrome. Why authors of slow browsers do not use instant icedragon solutions? @roytam1
  23. GZDoom 4.1.2b is the last XP compatible version (archive page). The XP support was dropped at the same time when the developer switched to Visual Studio 2019 (announcement thread).
  24. A word of caution to anyone running Vista on a VMware virtual machine - VMware Tools version 11.0.0 comes with an user mode OpenGL driver that expects K32EnumProcessModulesEx in kernel32.dll, which only exists on Windows 7+, thus one may unexpectedly get an error about the missing function when trying to run an OpenGL application, then application reporting it was unable to find an accelerated OpenGL driver or failing in some other way. The last compatible VMware Tools version is 10.3.10. This should be reported as it seems like an oversight rather than intentional breakage, plus the function is actually supported on Vista, just resides in a different DLL, so it would be trivial to fix.
  25. Hi. I converted my image file to .ESD for decrease space, but i need more space for write it. I saw a topic that someone asked this question for windows 7 and some users told can remove everything in Source folder instead (install.wim, boot.wim, setup.exe). i did it and work on vmware, so i need to know no problem in the future? Thanks.
  26. You're probably trying to download it with Internet Explorer or Edge, which are sensitive to incorrectly set MIME type on the server where the file is hosted. Try using another browser.
