    I have discovered that the 2016 versions of 3dsMax, Maya and Mudbox work on Windows Vista by editing the MSI installer using Orca. What you have to do is navigate to C:\Autodesk and into your 2016 versions of either 3dsMax, Maya or Mudbox. Then, enter into the folder of either x86 or x64 (depends on you Windows architecture version) and into the folder named after the program you want to install. In my case it is "max". Right click on "3dsMax.msi" and click "Edit with Orca". Finally, scroll down to "LaunchCondition", then right-click and click drop table. Save, close and proceed to install the program. I recommend that you have Vista completely up to date with Service packs, Platform updates and .NET. Orca download = https://www.technipages.com/downloads/OrcaMSI.zip

    Not the best photo quality but the auto parts shop in town is still running XP on one of their PCs.Though (out of picture) the PC is now resting in their counter instead of directly under the monitor as it previously was, the last time I posted about it. The picture is actually from about 2 months ago and I forgot to share it until now. They still are running XP now though!

    > I don't hate everything about Google; I still use their search engine (albeit via Startpage.com). Startpage.com gives me a "No cypher overlap" error. Google.com doesn't, but requires a FF2 UA to be usable! > They say reCaptchas also let you pass without any probs in other browsers if you're logged into a Google account... This summer Google invalidated old login cookies and updated their login JS, so it is no longer possible to login on FF2. So while I still use SM2.0.14 90% of the time, I continue working on making Roy's browsers more usable on 9x/ME via KernelEx (KG74 is currently the only way I can upload MSFN.org attachments from home!).

    Short answer: The drive will almost certainly work. However, NTFS file system performance won't be optimal unless your partition is "aligned" on a 4K boundary. XP's built-in disk management will try to align the partition on an old-style cylinder/track boundary, which almost certainly won't give you the best performance. But third-party software can align your partition on a 4K boundary. The standard these days is to align partitions on not just a 4K (8-sector) boundary, but a 1MiB (2048-sector) boundary! This seems wasteful, but 1 MiB is such a tiny fraction of a 2 TB drive you won't even notice. Linux's GPartEd will do the job, and you can download a boot image that you can burn to a bootable CD or DVD. If GPartEd isn't to your liking, the free version of EaseUS's Partition Master will also do it.

    How popular is Tim Hortons over there? Here the inner part of the cup lids is now maple leaf-shaped! They never attempted this gimmicky patriotic stuff when the company was actually Canadian-owned. Anyway, I announced that the operators of my college's cafeteria were moving away from XP in May. Indeed when the current semester started the XP box appeared to be in a state of network boot failure, presumably. They fixed everything a few weeks ago and now the cashier ignores the Windows 10 POS machine in favour of the XP one!

    forget about that, Paul75. the chances of MS actually listening to you & others after opening a support case are slim to none when using Office 2010 on XP. and MS will be ending support for all Office 2010 editions next year on October 2020: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/office-2010-end-support-roadmap so I doubt MS will ever fix the Office 2010 MSO.DLL problems for XP/2003 as Office 2010 will be EOL in less than a year from now

    It's dawning on me only now what a great business model this actually is: Domain marketeers give out cheap or free domains, but obviously still own them all themselves too, and can still do whatever they want with them! So they can just wait a bit until one of those domains becomes popular and successful, then just take it away from the supposed 'owners' again, pretending some invented or peanut reason, with no chance to appeal - and now start earning money with it themselves! Either put up nasty stuff themselves, or redirect, or why not SELL the successful domain now for bigger money to any really FRAUD or malware spreaders! While the true domain owners are left wondering if they may have done anything wrong, and what exactly.... What an irony. The implications are absolutely horrible: Evil new owners of those domains can put up whatever they want on those former trustworthy domains, while clueless visitors still keep reading in old articles and posts and archived website versions that this site is a GOOD and trustworthy one! So they visit and trust and unknowingly download now dangerous stuff :-( With greedy new owners usually not putting up a big message telling visitors that the ownership has changed. And visitors being just lucky if it's as obvious as in this case - but who knows for how long yet. I suppose future new owners can just as well restore former original linked download paths, just with exchanged file contents - GRRR After all such fake or pretended identities (legal or not) happen all the time now with all sorts of former great products and names :-( See it all the time in RealLife that names and logos of once great, now long since dead traditional companies, are now (ab)used even legally to sell products from completely different countries and producers and qualities. And of course in the software world too. Just remembered for example how the successful Stylish addon was finally sold to someone else, who probably seemed trustworthy to the former creator, but shortly after the seller just sold it again to a spying company etc. Actually a popular strategy of those companies, just take over former good products and secretly turn the new versions into spying tools. And recently an article about LOTS of new Firefox addons with stolen identities: https://www.ghacks.net/2019/05/29/another-malware-wave-hit-the-mozilla-firefox-extensions-store/ I'm opting for giving up as soon as possible the 3rd domain of this sort! Before it becomes too popular too, and "try" to get a less endangered one. Sigh, until some day all currently trustworthy resellers may be sold too, as usual today :-(

    This happened to me too. If I remember correctly, what it ended up doing was adding the contribution amount to my existing login. So instead of $5 total donated it shows up as $10 kind of thing. I think this worked out better, because the number of licenses was more for $10 than it was for 2 x $5.

    Ciao @resistor83 ; first thing I needed to do was get acquainted with PEC e-mail, since it's not used over here ; the following two links proved helpful: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Certified_email https://vademecumitalia.com/pec-what-is-it-why-should-you-need-a-pec-address-and-how-to-get-one/ Now, I would strongly advise you to implement TLS 1.1/1.2 on your machine, regardless; probably better use the newer MS update, as per @erpdude8 : I can't see any way it could harm your existing setup; BTW, you did not say anything regarding Windows Updates in your system (only official Vista SP2 ones, till Vista EOL?) ... You specifically asked about Microsoft Outlook (part of Microsoft Office Suite), but, again, as pointed out by @Vistapocalypse, you neglected to tell about the used version... I am using myself the native e-mail client under Vista, Windows Mail, which, AFAIK, uses IE9's internet settings - I just checked the headers in the source of a gmail e-mail I received recently and I can spot the following (some parts obscured for privacy): Received: from mail-yw1-fxx.google.com (mail-yw1-fxx.google.com [209.85.xxx.xx]) by MX-IN-05.xxxxxxxx.gr (8.15.2/8.15.2) with ESMTPS id x8TKAo60027571 (version=TLSv1.2 cipher=AES256-GCM-SHA384 bits=256 verify=NOT) so I believe I can receive e-mails over TLS 1.2; but, of course, as detailed in this thread, IE9 supports only a limited number of TLS 1.2 cypher suites... Another solution for you to try on Vista would be the latest supported version of Thunderbird (52.9.1?) ... As for Microsoft Outlook, @Vistapocalypse is probably right; versions 2007 and 2010 use the WinHTTP library to connect to servers; Windows applications using WinHTTP on WinOSes < 10 can't normally use TLS 1.1/1.2, even if these protocols are enabled system-wide in the SChannel library, because WinHTTP is hard-coded to use only TLS 1.0. Mom (!) Microsoft decided to not mitigate this under Windows Vista (and Windows Server 2008) SP2, but did so for its Win7+ children (!) - Thanks M$! https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3140245/update-to-enable-tls-1-1-and-tls-1-2-as-default-secure-protocols-in-wi Installation of that update should be followed by manually creating some registry keys, as instructed in the KB article; most sadly, an equivalent Vista/WS2008 update was NEVER released ... Some relevant articles (but fixes applicable only in Win7+): https://jaapwesselius.com/2018/09/23/outlook-2010-disconnected-with-tls-1-2/ https://www.ryadel.com/en/enable-tls-1-1-1-2-windows-7-8-os-regedit-patch-download/ https://www.greengeeks.com/tutorials/article/how-to-enable-tls-1-1-and-1-2-in-outlook-windows-7/ Illuminating SO answer regarding Vista: (from https://stackoverflow.com/questions/49497058/ ) Regards.

    Whoah.... your stories are real drama! And the above sounds like you're not too aware what you're dealing with here, but it's not quite trivial. I think it's all described in detail on the first UOC page, and strongly recommend studying it. But it's been a while that I've read it myself, so just a few quick tips from my own understanding: What matters most, is to FIRST make a backup of your profile! Or at the very least of PREFS.JS and USER.JS (if existing). You will need those files again to restore your current settings if later you remove the patch again. You can find your current profile folder in a link on the about:support page. IIRC the enforcer file goes into that profile folder, contents to be added in user.js, but better read this in the instructions to be sure. The "normal" patch file creates different "default" values for the contained prefs. This file goes into your unzipped program folders, into subfolder ../defaults/pref/ or /defaults/preferences. You want new profiles? Regarding K-Meleon, if you use roytam's 7z build, those create the profiles inside the unzipped program folder. You can just delete that "profiles" folder and restart, but I recommand to keep the current profile and just create a second one: Menu Edit>Manage Profiles K-Meleon also has the specialty that some user settings are stored outside of the profile, especially when changing toolbars, but you don't sound like you customized very deeply. PS: your screenshot, is it really intentional that you have the file types hidden, the endings after the filenames?? Or only because it's that stupid MS default setting? At any rate that icon for UOC looks you did not unzip the patch yet, that means it simply got ignored. You must extract the contained files to do anything with them.

    One thing to watch out for: the file names are different (e.g., UOC_Patch_38.js vs. UOC_Patch_45.js). So besides copying the _38.js files, you also need to delete the *_45.js files you copied earlier; otherwise NM 27 will load both and the result will probably not be what you want!

    I'm no expert on this (understatement ) but as I understand it those GAC (Global Assembly Cache) files are shared by other programs so should not be messed with. You need specific administrator permission not just admin rights to delete/add/edit those system files so it is best to leave them well alone. If they're not doing any harm then forget about them. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/app-domains/gac

    I'm using the PM28 patch on my Thinkpad T42p with a 2GHz Pentium M, 2GB of DDR, and a Radeon FireGL T2 GPU. Scrolling speed does some to be much improved, but I did notice that the feedback score element is missing when I hover over my username on the eBay landing page. I have highlighted the general area where it is normally displayed, in the picture provided. Not a deal breaker, but worth taking note of IMHO.

    I wonder if LineageOS has the option for good 'ol USB Mass Storage mode. For Sony Xperia E3 at least with stock OS based on Android 4.4.4, it's not an issue because it has the option in settings. It's still a fairly modern device, only 5 years old. I never used unrooted phone for long though, just find it too restricting. Banking apps often refuse to work on rooted phones and even some stuff in entertainment category... Sure you can unroot and certain modifications for which you needed root permissions stay, obvious exception being the apps that need root access to operate normally, but it's just an extra stupid barrier for the people who know what they're doing.

    I've had to use MTP a handful of times with a smartphone and XP and myself found it to be profoundly annoying.. so much simpler to have the media mounted as a drive rather than a device. Not to mention pure USB Mass Storage Mode allows for much greater backward compatibility with OS'es. Just my opinion though.

    On XP, this is not a problem, because the installer still does not work, you need to unzip files using 7-zip.

    Just for the record, I tried out the new UOC Patch for FF 52 on my dual-core AMD A4 machine (integrated GPU) with Windows 7 and Serpent 55, and it did speed up scrolling noticeably. It wasn't a big difference, as performance was already fine with that hardware (even though it's near the low end for Windows 7 systems), but it was at least enough to notice. So it might be worth trying even if you have a multicore processor and/or have multiprocess mode enabled. BTW, you can benefit from multiprocess mode even with a single-core processor. Although the processor can only do one thing at a time, multiprocess mode will still let you split your RAM usage among several processes and let you open more tabs without running out of RAM.

    gosh damn it Microsoft. it seems that KB4517134 fails to install if the KB4493730 update is not installed first as I had tested this myself this past weekend (and KB4474419 is also not installed). so that MS article 4517134 is wrong but on the other hand the MS Update Catalog site about the KB4517134 update is correct that it does not replace KB4493730 [friggin inconsistent info by MS on patch supersedence] I also found that installing the KB4474419 update alone (without installing any other updates from April 2019 & later) changes the build number from 6002 to 6003 and prevents Windows Update from looking for any Vista updates

    While the system lags, managed to install Vista SP2 x86 / 32-bit on my Z370 / 8700K / 16Gb. Didn't experience the Service Initialization issue. Applied official updates, no issues. Then installed unofficial updates (Server 2008), still working, but same lags. Surprised that even my Sound Blaster Z works just fine. PS: Screenshot from a PT-BR localized ISO. Just did it for fun, was the first language I've found here. PS2: x64 is no-no, sadly.

    Good to know; thanks! I use it on my Win 7 system quite a bit, but since the XP system is a VM, there's not much point in trying it there.... Edit: Since it does work, I added a link to their download page to my previous post above.

    We all knew this day would come. M$ has really been working overtime this year, killing any old OS features they possibly can. Early in the year they went after XP with a vengeance; now they're doing the same to Win 7. But there's a silver lining: I've read good things about EPG123. The Schedules Direct guide is from Gracenote, which supplies guide data for Zap2It.com and used to supply guide data for WMC before M$ switched to Rovi (which later bought Tivo and took the Tivo name for the merged company). The software is free but (as you noted) the Schedules Direct subscription isn't. The subscription is only $25/year though; a lot less than Tivo (unless you get a Tivo with a "lifetime" subscription), and I've read that you get a 21-day guide for your money; a nice improvement over the 12-day (at best) M$-provided guide.

    I am glad that he had found friends here. I never really knew the extent of all of his Win9x work. My current desktop can still boot into Win9x because of him, although, I haven't in a while. I would like to try to provide some closure for others so I'll give a timeline of what happened. You may or may not have known that my father had heart issues. He had a mild heart attack in his 40s. August 19th: Goes in for angiogram, gets fast tracked for triple bypass surgery. He left me a message midday about it and I called him that evening. We discussed the options they gave him and he seemed settled on the bypass surgery. August 21st: Has the surgery. Gets out of surgery, doctor tells me take he handled it well. August 24th: First time I was able to contact him on the phone after the surgery. He seemed well but certainly worn-down after the surgery. August 25th: Had a heart attack (cardiac event). Survived, but apparently it was not a good situation. I was able to talk to him that evening (I think, it could have been the next day). Got the impression that his diabetes and insulin resistance played a major role in the incident. August 28th: Last night I get to talk to him. I made plans to come down to see him on the 30th. August 29th: Situation escalates, possible infection/sepsis. August 30th-September 2nd: He is heavily sedated for the pain. But things seem stable. Not good, but stable. I return home and hope for the best. September 3-7th: Situation goes back and forth, fluid buildup leads to treatment for infection. Ultimately, the infection is treatable but the sepsis is not. September 9th: Palliative care nurse contacts me and I go back down that afternoon. Situation is getting worse. September 10th: Responsiveness to questions during sedation vacation is lost except to pain stimulus. September 11th: Taken off of life support. Passes at 1:28pm. I hope that helps. I think it has helped me to write it out. I forgot I had the message from him in my voicemail about going to the hospital. My own personal take on it is that complications from diabetes played a major role in his inability to recover but I am not a doctor and it's just my own mind trying to justify the situation.

    First off, let me thank you ever so much for coming here to post an update, you have no idea how much it is appreciated. Second, I personally want to extend my sincerest condolences for your loss, to you and the rest of the family. We truly enjoyed having your dad as part of our community. Heh, my heart actually started racing when I saw his username had posted, thinking that somehow we got a bum steer and he was coming to tell us that he was still alive. But back to seriousness, we understand that it's probably a very busy time for you and the family and we want you to take all the time you need to grieve and take care of important business. But know that even though we didn't get to meet him personally, he was still a friend around here and we treasured the time we had with him. If I may ever be so brazen, was his passing expected or unexpected? You don't have to answer if you don't want to but it may help some of the hurt that some of us feel and give us some closure. Again, thank you so much for coming and posting this update for us! It really helps to keep up in the loop of things.
