    Audio driver for Realtek HD Audio Hardware?

    @Dave-h: I think you're right about activate.exe, but I don't know. 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"
  3. Speaking of Waterfox, if anyone uses it could you please be so kind as to post its user agent string? I have several that I like keeping up to date and use for various reasons but Waterfox eludes me since it can't be installed on my lowly 32-bit computer: Googling for it brings up at least two different versions; one is probably right but which is it: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:56.0; Waterfox) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.2.7 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:65.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/65.0 Waterfox/56.2.7
  4. In an effort to figure out what slides are the culprit in a massive 300 slides PowerPoint presentation, we found instructions as linked below to save the slides to a library. However, When following the instructions, there is no such option to "Publish Slides". Does anyone know why this feature may not exist? Alternatively maybe you have another solution how we can find which is the largest slide which is what we really are trying to find out? https://www.dummies.com/software/microsoft-office/powerpoint/how-to-save-slides-to-a-library-in-powerpoint-2016/ Thanks in advance.
  5. Haven't heard about that problem before. I get very obvious visual anomalies on my end, something to do with lack of certain optimizations that only later versions of Aero Glass have. The problem is more profound when ran on virtual machine due to worse graphics performance. Maybe there's something interesting in C:\AeroGlass\debug.log and in Event Viewer. You should be able to reboot to Safe Mode and access those things from there.
  6. Thanks @Mathwiz & @VistaLover! I'll go ahead and make those changes, thanks for the heads up. I had assumed my implementation would break pretty fast, think there will ever be an auto-update feature for the xpmod versions of Pale Moon?
  7. At least for Winxp-SSE true: There are still videodownload-problems on certain sites. Wanted to download the instruction -video for win7-updatepacks on winfuture dot de. (german site but most important) . BTW: If Win7 and newer the updatepacks(Full monthly or monthly updates) will also work on english versions. there is a workaround if one is starting with Full version(latest) stopping UAC. its in Sticky/Wichtig in the forum. msconfig and then click on UAC and press start. then down with the regulator. I can use Firefox and special Firefox, Palemoon/Newmoon, K-Melion-Goanna and Maxthon 3(didnt try 5 maybe not working-it has a more sophisticated downloaded built-in). To my big surprise Maxthon 3 has a built-in videodownloader(is also seperating ads). On winfuture site downloader is just above the videowindow! Wow! Cliqz also has built-in downloader but i dont remember if its only working in Win7 and later. Maybe also Winxp-SSE2 but certainly not for Winxp-SSE. we will see when i have rebuilt my second PC.

    Audio driver for Realtek HD Audio Hardware?

    Thanks. I don't think I've got HDARUN.EXE actually running now. Mytimer is set to "1" in hdacfg.ini. Is it actually what the driver readme files refer to as "activate.exe"? Was its name changed perhaps?
  10. Of course Siria is right, but luckily the situation is much better on Windows 3.1 browsers with a webproxy as workaround. Although I must admit that IE2.0 didn't work and with IE5.0 downloads are not possible. Just checked situation with Opera 12.02 on Windows 98se:

    Audio driver for Realtek HD Audio Hardware?

    @Dave-H: Thanks for your kind words, but without your patience and perseverance there would have been no success, although we are not finished yet in my opinion. You still didn't tell if you can play Digital Audio without HDARUN (so Mytimer=1). Also I am still working on a ALC883 version of HDAICOUT.HDA i'de like to have tested. About files: you need to save HDA2.DLL, OEMSETUP.INF, HDATSR.EXE, WAVEOUT.EXE, HDARUN.EXE (indeed in folder activate), the README's and for more convenient install my GENHDA16.INF. Further the for your system working versions of HDACFG.INI and HDAICOUT.HDA of cause.

    Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    KB4493458 has Known issues with Sophos Endpoint Protection (which is a business solution) and Avira. Of course Avira officially ended support for Vista years ago, and Sophos Home never supported Vista.

    Win 7, no USB drivers

    Good , though if you can it would be useful to compare those to your friend's ones. The Mass Storage devices seem to me like not relevant (even if the may be part of the mess). What happens if you delete the devices and lt after reboot Windows 7 find them? Or try forcing the instal of these (x86/x64): http://driverpacks.net/catalog-drivers/device_id/hwid-PCI\VEN_8086%26DEV_1E2D?os=windows-7-x86 http://driverpacks.net/catalog-drivers/device_id/hwid-PCI\VEN_8086%26DEV_1E2D?os=windows-7-x64 jaclaz

    My build of New Moon (temp. name) a.k.a. Pale Moon for XP

    As for Waterfox, it is not based on UXP, and as for the new Alpha release of Waterfox v68, Photon, WebExtensions and Bootstrapped Add-Ons will be embraced.
  17. Yes, that is likely. That part, I'm not so sure about. OTOH, it's certainly possible. We'll just have to hope for the best. It'll depend on what MCP intends to do with PM 29, and what code libraries they use. For example, they could go down a path similar to Waterfox, which preserves UXP, yet cannot be back-ported to XP (uses Rust, IIRC....)

    Audio driver for Realtek HD Audio Hardware?

    @deomsh Just a quick question. I'm making a zip file up containing all the necessary files for this in case I ever need to reinstall it again from scratch, with an installation instruction note. The documentation for the driver refers to a file called "activate.exe", which doesn't appear to exist. The file in the "Activate" folder is called "Hdarun.exe". Is that the same file? I'm not actually running it, I assume that it's not needed? Also, do I need the HDA2.MAP file, or is that also part of the source code?

  20. ... It was detailed in the official Pale Moon forums that UXP (off of Mozilla ESR 52.6.0) is the final Mozilla code fork-point for Moonchild Productions' applications, as they concluded that any more up-to-date Mozilla code is, in fact, incompatible with XUL apps and their own vision of how apps should be... To this day, they claim they'll stay clear of the Quantum platform (which includes Rust, Servo and other XP+Vista incompatible code/libs), so my gut feeling is if/when official Pale Moon 29.x.x is released, it'll be built on a UXP evolutionary off-spring (thus, still being susceptible to the XP+Vista restoration "treatment" ); of course, time will only tell
  21. OS: Windows Vista SP2 32-bit Browser: Serpent v52.9.0 (2019-04-19) (32-bit) buildID=20190419233752 Original browser package: "basilisk52-g4.1.win32-git-20190420-51722cd4f-xpmod.7z" Userstyle manager extension installed: Stylem 2.2.4 Sadly, it well appears that installing userstyles directly from the userstyles.org repository is currently broken (again ) : Clicking the "Install Style" button gets the tab to become unresponsive/hang, with no prompt appearing to install the style... Is it 1. The site's fault? 2. The browser's fault? 3. The extension's fault? In any case, I had to use the workaround posted in this thread some months ago... about:addons => "User Styles" tab => "Install style from URL" button (second on top-left) => Input the following URL: https://userstyles.org/styles/144028/google-clean-dark.css

    Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

    Sure. But someone ought to start a dedicated thread and write a cleaned-up how-to procedure for that, don't you agree? I can contribute a regshot "redo.reg" of the minimum registry changes needed (to be attached soon to this very post) and the picture below...
  23. I think you could go with and you'll be set, at least until NM 29! Note: I'd guess that, when the day comes, it won't be possible to make an XP-compatible version of PM 29. But I'm willing to bet that @roytam1 will continue post-EOL updates of NM 28, just as he does now for NM 27. So 28.* will probably work for a long time
  24. ... The Moonchild Productions devs have just bumped appVersion to 28.5.0a2 in their master branch: https://github.com/MoonchildProductions/UXP/commit/bccf86a (bumping platformVersion as well to 4.2.0); I expect @roytam1 to soon follow on this - when that happens, your script will fail and'll have to be amended... Just a heads-up!

    Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    I bet you do banking using your Win Vista, and your bank(s) have installed safety software by Diebold/Warsaw/GAS Technology on it. If so, such safety software is known to cause instabilities (usually related to win32k) and slow the system. But since they update it constantly, the BSoDs usually go away by themselves after some time. The system slowdown, however, only gets worse on time passing. The best overall solution is to have duplicate Windows in the same machine, let one as is for banking and clean the other from such security software and use it for everything but banking. Yes, it requires a double-boot setup, but nothing is perfect & there's no such thing as a free lunch, of course!

    Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    If the April updates per se caused instability, I think Ruan, WinClient5270 or greenhillmaniac would have noticed it. What antivirus are you using?
