    Update Win 7, or Not ?

    I'm making this post in this thread in case followers of this thread missed important information on another thread that is relevant to this thread. The information regards what seem to be two essential updates that should be installed to Windows 7 SP1 systems that will still make them update-able in the future (should you so wish to selectively install any other Microsoft Updates in the future). Information is a follows: Microsoft are going to start signing future Microsoft Updates using (what they call) SHA-2 only (so SHA-1 signing is being dropped). This change for Windows 7 starts on August 13, 2019. To accommodate this Microsoft have now released two Windows Updates that will make Windows 7 SP1 capable of reading the new SHA-2 signed Microsoft Updates. If after the August deadline you find out that there is some other new Microsoft Update that is essential to install to your system then you won't be able to install it if you don't, now, install the two current Microsoft Update SHA-2 patches. For more information see this webpage: 2019 SHA-2 Code Signing Support requirement for Windows and WSUS The two patches that need to be installed to Windows 7 SP1 to accommodate this change are as follows: SHA-2 code signing support update for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7: March 12, 2019 (KB4474419) Standalone Install Download: Microsoft Update Catalog - KB4474419 Servicing stack update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1: March 12, 2019 (KB4490628) Standalone Install Download: Microsoft Update Catalog - KB4490628 The original thread that I got some of this information from is: https://msfn.org/board/topic/178186-looking-for-info-about-the-upcoming-standalone-sha-2-patch-for-win7/ It is worth reading that thread as there is mention towards the end of a someone running into difficulties when installing KB4474419. I installed both updates on my system, in the order given above - doing a reboot after each separate install, and experienced no difficulties at all. That brings my tally of manually installed by me Windows Updates on my Win7 SP1 x64 up to five. System is still purring nicely, yahoo! Hope this helps.

    Nvidia Pascal Graphics Card Issue

    It is such a pity to be honest. I doubt it would take lots of resources to make a Windows 7 driver available to Vista from Nvidia, considering how similar those OSes actually are.

    Possible to get Skype 8 up and running on XP?

    My Skype Desktop 7.36 is still working, but also doesn't now want to connect apparently. It was fine yesterday morning, although it did take a while to connect. When I tried it later in the day it wouldn't connect at all, and still won't now, although it does seem to be working! I can read and post messages fine still, despite the permanently rotating "connecting" icon.

    Possible to get Skype 8 up and running on XP?

    Yeah can confirm something happened with skype for web, and it pretty much died yesterday or so'ish. That "startup_load_error" even when the browser is spoofed to a "supportable" browser/OS like i used to do for ages now.... it also simultaneously happened that the latest working version of skype is stuck on the "connecting" icon, even if it feels like it is connected coz i receive msgs/see who is online on my contacts Still hoping it's something temporary and will get fixed

    Missing email client in the Start Menu.

    @VistaLover Your hypothesis could be plausible. @roytam1 It is also written in the first post that Interlink MailNews is set as the default email client :

    Instagram videos not working in Firefox 52 ESR?

    I think I found the problem it doesn't like this string in the prefs so I reset it user_pref("general.useragent.override", "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0"); this is a string not a boolean after doing a FF reset a few times add back in different prefs some had that string missing and I could get into Instagram, adding it in it refused to let me in, removing again back in I removed this and it let me back in

    Installing Windows XP on Dell Inspiron 20 Model 3043?

    usb has to be fat32 with MBR and have UEFI bootloader file in there you can only access it from F12 boot menu and it has to be in before u turn it on... You might not be able to use legacy mode even tho its a option because its dell. You might also have to install a grub boot loader to facilitate booting to XP from UEFI etc. unless u are going to dual boot like win 7 and xp and installed 7 1st. try BOOTICE
  13. you mean KB4474419? see if these links help https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/windows-7-updade-kb4474419-fail-repeatedly-with/9e2dc4ca-5adc-479f-9521-8838077b1e82 https://www.sevenforums.com/windows-updates-activation/418834-unable-install-kb4474419-win7-x64-ultimate.html
  14. sorry Jody. IE11 requires a native Windows Server 2012 or Embedded Win8 version - installation is blocked on normal / client versions of Win8 (MS seemed to be smart on that one in only allowing install of IE11 on Win8 Embedded & Server 2012)

    Internet Explorer 11 will be available for Windows 8!!

    Jody, I don't use VMs because I have older machines that can't reliably support VMs I install Win8.0 natively on an old HP computer (2007 model using an Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 cpu) w/ Win8.0 Pro that my relative has but lives in a different street than my family. greenhillmaniac did say a few days ago that installation of IE11 does not work on Win8.0 clients (I just confirmed this yesterday; tried extracting the CAB file from the KB4492872 MSU file and using dism.exe to install on my relatives Win8 Pro computer but failed with an error message). Looks like KB4492872 really does check for either Server 2012 or Win8 Embedded being used and blocks install on normal or "client" versions of Win8. NBD (no big deal) for me since I hardly use IE on Win8.0

    Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    you're right about saying that looks can be deceiving, but for a different reason, greenhillmaniac. I did install the KB4054542 (.NET 4.7.2) update on my Win8.0 Pro x64 machine several days ago. however the installation went fairly quickly without error BUT I had to really check the C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\ and C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\ folders to see if a bunch of .NET DLL files such as the System.dll, System.Core.dll, System.Data.dll etc. were updated to the NET 4.7.2 versions (v4.7.3081.0) [right-click on any of those DLL files, choose Properties and click on the Details tab to check the version number]. they were not updated, even though I have KB4054542 listed in the Installed Updates section of the Programs and Features Control panel. so the install of KB4054542 was really "partial" on Win8.0 clients

    Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    fwaa haa haa haa oh well no IE11 on Win8.0 clients; bummer Jody (you can go back in remove IE10 if you like) looks like the KB4492872 IE11 packs do check the InstallType and EditionID and only install on Server 2012 & Win8 Embedded

    Newer motherboards that support WinXP

    New acpi.sys for XP SP3 32 bit, all languages and compis. Please tell me results for making things better Dietmar acpi.rar EDIT: The problem is more complex: On my asrock fatal1ty z370 gaming k6 with acpi.sys 5048 I get again BSOD 0xA5 (0x03, xxx, C0140008, yyy). And in its Bios I isolated ALL CreateQwordField instructions. EDIT2: The problem may be really in QwordConstant: acpi.sys from XP has no problem with this word. But acpi.sys 5048 has. This I know, because in DSDT table from the asrock fatal1ty z370 gaming k6 there appear QwordMemory and QwordAcc. I do not isolate them. XP boots. And may be because of QwordMemory and QwordAcc BSOD 0xA5 (0x03, xxx, C0140008, yyy) with acpi.sys 5084 on the Asrock board. So, at the moment, acpi.sys 5084 is worse than my modded acpi.sys before.
  20. When right-clicking a program/exe and clicking "Pin to Start", the item doesn't appear or get pinned in the StartIsBack menu, only the base Win10 start menu.

    Shift-F10 doesn't work in Start Menu

    When typing a program name in the start menu box, it's possible to use the arrow keys to navigate the list. However, pressing Shift-F10 does not work (for the particular item that's selected). Normally, it should bring up the context menu, as it's the keyboard equivalent of a right-click. Instead, it opens the context menu for the text box, as if the right-click happened inside there.

    Microsoft security essentials and Windows XP

    Good! Here's a slightly more generic version of it. As before 7-Zip and wget required and one'll probably need to adjust some path names, depending on where 7-Zip and wget live on your own systems. In my system wget.exe is on the environment PATH, so no explicit path is needed. @echo off pushd %temp% if not exist mpam-fe.exe start /wait wget -O mpam-fe.exe http://definitionupdates.microsoft.com/download/DefinitionUpdates/x86/mpam-fe.exe "%ProgramFiles%\7-zip\7z.exe" x -y "mpam-fe.exe" *.vdm net stop MsMpSvc move *.vdm "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Definition Updates\Updates" net start MsMpSvc del mpam-fe.exe popd Notice please it's a .cmd, I don't remember whether pushd/popd work OK with .bat extension...

    Unofficial SP 5.2 for Microsoft Windows 2000 (WIP)

    I like this attitute . I have uploaded the script to the download Archive under https://mega.nz/#F!2lBVBBLI!WqmqhpxuX0qyCY1LiX4-gw!L0omSarK. Please download "HFSLIP2000-info.7z" and unpack it to your Windows source folder. The file structure will look something like this: I386 SUPPORT CDROM_IP.5 CDROM_NT.5 CDROMSP4.TST HFSLIP.LOG HFSLIP2000-info.cmd Then just run "HFSLIP2000-info.cmd" and wait for the results. It may take some time as the script is not optimized (=it is slow), and also right now requires to be run in Windows 7 and above (because of one of the tools used to calculate SHA1). The script will make a list of all files from the i386 folder, including their size, version, and SHA1 checksum. Once the script has finished its job, you will find a new file called "HFSLIP2000-info.txt" next to the script file. Please pack it and upload somewhere for me to see.

    Missing email client in the Start Menu.

    had a look comparing windows integration component of comm-esr52 and binoc-central, there is no "big" changes besides names. did you ever tried set mailnews as default mail/news client?
  26. If you didn't know why did you bother responding? I was asking the person who would the most familar with the code itself if he thought there would be problems with it running under WINE,not some useless,most likely Gnome 3 using, PC Gamer like you..

    Missing email client in the Start Menu.

    @Sampei.Nihira From the Microsoft link in your first post: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/shell/start-menu-reg#registering-for-the-start-menu-email-link Matt A. Tobin has created the official Interlink e-mail client to target Win7+, so he may have deliberately removed the function to place registry entries under the "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail" registry folder (as this is a WinXP/WinVista requirement ); I'm tired now to go through his repository, but, hopefully, that intentional change can be reverted by Roytam in a future MailNews release...
