  1. Past hour
  2. it seems that direct link still works, so it's something on the download button or something. http://www.glass8.eu/files/setup-wrs-1.5.12.exe
  3. im facing the same issue with all downloads.
  4. Telegram? Haven't heard of that before? Can you explain what it is?
  5. I prefer WINAMP, still works amazing up to this day! or you know you could stick with good old Windows M E D I A P L A Y E R
  6. Well, when I'll get out of options, I'll consider that.
  7. Today
  8. Actually I did read that; I merely chose to ignore it!
  9. ... You are developing a habit lately of not closely reading my posts (just kidding, of course! ) : So, for both Serpent 52/55, CTR_v1.7.8 IT IS; CTR_v1.7.8.2019.10.27 (and not v1.7.8.2019.01.21) applies to official Basilisk (on Win7+) and Classic Waterfox... Should be possible to read posted fixes/changes in https://github.com/Aris-t2/ClassicThemeRestorer/releases after Classic Theme Restorer and including Classic Theme Restorer 1.7.8
  10. I'm just speculating here, but I bet that the part where they fail is when MU says "verifying download", doesn't see a valid SHA-1 cert, and fails. The Standalone updates either don't check, or use their own/more basic integrity checking method.
  11. Mozilla's decision to remove support for all pre-WE APIs, of course, broke CTR for FF 57+. Then their decision to remove all pre-WE add-ons from AMO meant that only "legacy" / classic add-on repositories would have a link to CTR. I checked legacycollector and addons.basilisk-browser.org first with no luck, then found it in the CAA database and thought my search was done, unaware that development is continuing for Basilisk / Waterfox at GitHub. So now, I've updated Serpent 55 to v1.7.8, and Serpent 52 (which should be on par with "official" Basilisk) to v1.7.8.2019.10.7! I'll update my old FF 52.9 (and XomPie-patched FF 53) next. CTR has so many options, though, I can't readily tell what was added between and 1.7.8 et seq. One weird thing I did discover, though was that v1.7.8.2019.01.21 removed the option to display the version number in the Add-On Manager screen so by updating Serpent 52 to the "latest" version, I lost that bit of info. The author explained, "Basilisk 2019 and Waterfox don't need this option, because version number is active by default." If so, that would be a question for @roytam1: What is the difference between Serpent 52 and "official" Basilisk that accounts for this slight UI change? Inquiring minds want to know.... Maybe I'll roll it back to 1.7.8 so I can tick that option back on; I like having my add-on version numbers visible at a glance. Serpent 55 still searches AMO for updates. Serpent 52 searches, um - what should we call it? ABBO, I guess. But I haven't found ABBO particularly useful (as mentioned it doesn't even include CTR), so I switched the prefs in about:config back to AMO (you have to change %APP% to firefox). That way, at least my WE add-ons stay updated. Surprisingly, quite a few are still compatible with FF 52/53 and Serpent 52/55.
  12. I'm not sure why the problem of the incompatible SHA-2 signing is only a problem with Microsoft Update, and not with the standalone installers. Obviously I'm very glad that the standalone installers still work, but why don't they fail as well?
  13. I figured I'd make a group on Telegram, to perhaps get a few people that don't like/ prefer not to use discord. The group serves the same basic purpose as the Discord Server, a way for MSFN members to join and talk about MSFN and related stuff. The link to join is: https://t.me/msfnorg
  14. Out of curiosity, I downloaded that MS update from the link in the KB article; that fetched file "excel2010-kb4484164-fullfile-x86-glb.exe", sized 36.1 MB (!). I can confirm this is only SHA-2 code-signed: You'll have to test file code-signing signatures in a fully updated Win7 system (or higher) or, in my case, in Vista SP2 with one of the WS2008SP2 updates which give the OS SHA-2 code-signing verification support... Trying the Windows Update Catalog link (mentioned in that same KB article), http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4484164 I ended up with a different file, excel-x-none_a5b150722cca4d6d9b062063747b02df0eaaaf51.cab (sized 19.8 MB); extracting it yields an excel-x-none.msp file (Windows Installer Patch, sized 40.3 MB), which is also only SHA-2 code-signed; notice that on the MUC, only a generic version is offered, regardless of the OS on which Office 2010 is installed ; perhaps the .exe and .msp files check OS version when launched, but it didn't occur to M$ that XP+Vista don't support SHA-2 code-signatures; there was a specific update on Vista (KB2763674) that allowed for .exe file execution even in the case the .exe was only SHA-2 signed, I guess a similar one might exist in XP (as part of the POSReady ones?) ... The deal breaker here is that Windows Update on both XP and Vista was never patched to deliver updates signed with only sha-2 code signatures - for WS2008SP2, such an update does exist, but when that's installed on Vista, it changes the build number of Vista to 6.0.6003 - but that cuts off Vista completely from WU servers , because they were only configured to serve Vista 6.0.6002 builds; it emerges that WU servers are intelligent enough to tell apart Vista 6.0.6003 (blocked) from WS2008 6.0.6003 (supported); so, starting with Nov 2019 (and for the remaining updates till Oct 2020), users of Office 2010 SP2 on XP/Vista should manually install applicable updates from either MS Download Center/MUC... ( ... and you thought M$ would screw Office 2010 only on XP, by sending incompatible mso.dll files... )
  15. @Mathwiz, Thanks for posting the links. I had same problem with those 3 updates failing to install the normal way. Links downloaded updates and they installed OK. No adverse effects on Office 2010 workings I can see from my quick test that they start up.
  16. ... I was under the impression Disney+ launched initially only in the US, Canada and The Netherlands... https://www.cnet.com/news/disney-plus-streaming-service-launch-dares-prices-shows-movies-marvel-star-wars-pixar/ Aren't you currently in Poland?
  17. It is possible. Recently, gfycat had announced it was deleting large portions of posts and the Archive team took to the task of backing up the site. Whatever their methods, it ended up causing bandwidth issues for them and they got their lawyers involved. https://twitter.com/textfiles/status/1192518085997137920
  18. That's good; your last post had me worried! My yellow shield was there this AM with the three Office 2010 updates. Since manual installation still works, here are links to their support pages: https://support.microsoft.com/kb/4484164 https://support.microsoft.com/kb/4484127 https://support.microsoft.com/kb/4484160 You can go to each support page, scroll down to "Option 3: Microsoft Download Center," and find links to the standalone installers for both 32- and 64-bit versions of Office 2010. (I would assume the vast majority of folks have 32-bit systems, but just in case....)
  19. Hehe! My second name is laziness... I finally installed it and everything seems right. Thanks for the tips, VistaLover!
  20. Microsoft Update didn't take anywhere near as long to complete its scan as it did when we had the issue before, it wasn't hours and hours like it was then! It just took several minutes, which is unusual now. I did get a yellow shield with those Office updates this morning, but they failed again when an attempt was made using that interface. I have now installed them all manually and all seems fine, but what a PITA! I guess we will always have to do that in future if what @Mathwizsays is correct. The second update (KB4484160) seemed to take forever to install, but it got there in the end!
  21. @TrevMUN Smart Defrag will assist you in Trimming your SSD Drives. That's what I use, and it's free too; simply run the program and click on Trim & Intelligent Optimize. Now, sometimes your SSD Device will show up as a Hard Drive instead of a Solid State Drive. Simply hoover over where it shows the HDD Icon and your Drive Name; and Two Arrows will appear, click up or down until you see it change your drive to SSD. As stated above, click Trim & Intelligent Optimize, just hoover your mouse over the arrow that's pointing right (It's next to the Trim button) and it will give you that option. I have yet to test Smart Defrag's Trimming abilities with NVME based drives but, I would expect it to work the same way; as long as windows sees it; it should also see it. Enjoy and Good luck!
  22. LAV Filters installed? Directx 9.29 redist? All Visual C ++? Enable MP4 (H.264 + AAC) HTML5? Server Disney + now works correctly in mypal, newmoon, basilisk.
  23. Direct links to official Adobe Flash Player distribution packages version with SHA-1 signature released today (should work with Windows XP SP3/Windows XP x64 SP2) Internet Explorer ActiveX: http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/ Mozilla Firefox NPAPI (also for Opera Presto/Google Chrome 44 and earlier): http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/ Google Chrome 45 through 49 PPAPI: http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/
  24. Chrome 49 no longer works for me. I use Basillisk now. First step is to override user agent. I have: general.useragent.override.skype.com;Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/74.0.3729.169 Safari/537.36 Now, web.skype.com will go into a redirect loop, because of fantastic web design. When you see "skype cannot be used for emergency calling" at the bottom of the page, start tapping Esc until client is loaded. This will prevent redirect.
  25. I guess it's again time for the monthly batch of updates. KB4526478 - Servicing Stack Update for Windows Server 2008 - 32-bit | 64-bit KB4525106 - Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 9 - 32-bit | 64-bit KB4525234 - Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows Server 2008 - 32-bit | 64-bit KB4525239 - Security Only Quality Update for Windows Server 2008 - 32-bit | 64-bit Optional updates: KB4528081 - Update for Windows Server 2008 - 64-bit (apparently this update lets Server 2008 machines get updates after Jan. 2020 but it's only available in the 64-bit flavor for some reason) And that's it for November updates for now, but I'm pretty sure another timezone update will be released in a couple days so will try to add it to this list as soon as it's out.
