    Well, now that the poor dead horse has been beaten to a pulp, minced and ground, on top of it, what should we do? Horse-hamburgers or horse-nuggets? Or maybe spaghetti al sugo with horse-meatballs?

    Funny, I was about to post an update to the update repository Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4507452 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added Security Only Update, KB4507461 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4507434 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Replaced .NET Framework Security and Quality with: -KB4507003 for .NET 2.0 SP2 (located in "/NET 2.0 SP2/Security and Quality Rollup") -KB4507001 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/NET 4.5.2/Security and Quality Rollup") -KB4506997 for .NET 4.6-4.6.1 (located in "/NET 4.6-4.6.1/Security and Quality Rollup") Added .NET Security Only Updates with: -KB4506975 for .NET 2.0 SP2 (located in "/NET 2.0 SP2/Security Only") -KB4506966 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/NET 4.5.2/Security Only") -KB4506963 for .NET 4.6-4.6.1 (located in "/NET 4.6-4.6.1/Security Only") Added Extra update KB4508774 (located in "/Extras") with an updated readme. https://mega.nz/#F!txxRyLzC!1vBMGzMHiL864f3bl1Rj1w BTW, I've seen demand for it, so I'm thinking of posting my Vista update repository that holds all of Vista's x86 and x64 updates from the beginning until its EOL (April 2017). Useful if you want to update your system offline without using WU. It's completely separate from this repository I'm updating every other month. Is there any interest?

    I purchased and tested a 4TB WD My Passport Drive. The current WD Formatter does work, although not quite as described in the documentation. I found the SCSI commands needed to set the Sector size between 512 and 4K. Unfortunately, most other Drives do not support them. It can also be set to 1K and 2K Sector sizes, which are supported by Windows from 2000 to 10 as well as 98SE with my Terabyte Plus Package. I did not try 8K, 16K, 32K, or 64K Sectors because I wasn't sure if I could regain control.

    Only post SP2, but I do include the installers for SP1 and SP2. What I meant by "all" was also the hotfixes that Microsoft released that were not available in WU (more for x64 than x86, since I only managed to collect from MS's hotfix service before it closed for the former).

    Hello, everyone Because I am a Chinese, I want to provide you with some useful information about Chinese browsers. Since many government agencies and users in China are using windows xp, at least 80% of browser vendors in China support windowsxp, and you can search engines in Google or Baidu ( https://baidu.com the equivalent of Google in China). Search directly on the "浏览器" (Chinese in the browser), he will return search results of many browsers, such as “猎豹浏览器” (Cheetah browser, based on chromium55), "搜狗高速浏览器" (Sogou high-speed browsing , said to be based on Chrome6x), "UC浏览器" (UC Browser, based on Chromium55), ”2345 浏览器“ (2345 browser, based on chromium56), as well as the “360 浏览器" mentioned in this article, etc. But these browsers have the following problems compared to foreign browsers (such as chrome) First: advertising, because Chinese manufacturers of domestic browsers need to be profitable, so they will have built-in ads in the browser (advertisements are sent by the browser, you can not use adblock to block it), usually these ads will be at the bottom of the browser Or the bottom right corner of the pop-up window, you are very bored Second: privacy issues, due to Chinese government policies and browser vendors need to make a profit, so it can be said that all Chinese browsers will collect your personal privacy data, no matter how you set it in the browser, but because of this Political issues, I am not convenient to say here. (The above users also mentioned why the 360 browser can't log in using the google account, it is also because of the government's policy, so all Chinese browsers are not allowed to log in to the google account) For the above two questions, I am here to give you a few suggestions: First, and most basic, if you want to use the Chinese version of the browser, then please use the international version instead of the Chinese version. Second, if you know Chinese or if possible, you can go to Google or Baidu to search for the browser + green version you want in Chinese, or the browser + Lite you want, or the browser you want + Optimized version, for example, if you want to use 360 browser, then you can use keywords: 360浏览器精简版、360浏览器优化版、360浏览器绿色版 (English meaning:360 browser lite, 360 browser optimized version, 360 browsing Green version) to search,Please note that after downloading, use anti-virus software to check whether the file contains viruses. Because China's domestic software generally contains a large number of advertisements, the privacy collection of the software itself is too serious. Therefore, there are many good third-party modified software collection websites in China. For example,吾爱破解 ( http://www.52pojie.cn , English means I like to crack), qiuquan's blog ( http://www.qiuquan.cc/browser/, a private blog, but the modified version of the blog master made the browser, especially the 360 browser is very famous),This is what he did -- Streamlined automatic update procedures; -- Streamlined English language files; - Streamline presets for each plugin; -- Streamlined Thunder download module; -- Streamlined URL query module; - Streamline the browser doctor module (because it is a bit useful, so use it as an option); -- Streamlined built-in 360 security guard module; -- Streamline the win8 metro interface support module; -- Remove developer mode warnings; -- Remove redundant menu items from the Help menu; ++ Upgrade the built-in Flash plug-in version to 32.0.0.192 The latest harmonious stable version (because the latest version of the Flash plug-in is preset, the installation package is larger than the official version). ++ Optional install "Advertiser Defender" filter plugin, default subscription "cjx82630" + Baidu Beautification Rules + Add Network Disk interface refresh rules (if you need to overwrite the installation, this box is not selected); ++ Modify the word search engine to be "Baidu"; ++Adjust multiple details, optimize program settings, and change the default search to "Baidu"; ++ The default setting of the new tab page is 12 squares, and remove the extra button in the upper right corner. Thanks to the group members for "low-key dě gorgeous" to provide technical support! ++Resolved the problem that the previous version could not preset the skin to "Speed 8" (Speed 9 is no longer needed); ++ restore the new tab page to the nine-square grid style; ++ Turn off "hardware acceleration" by default to avoid watching some videos appear card screen phenomenon; ++ prohibits the generation of the "debug.log" log file; ++ prohibits the creation of the "User Data\safemon" directory; ++Add "Xunlei" dedicated chain plugin and "Alipay" security plugin; The ++ uninstallation process adds "whether to retain browser bookmarks and personal configuration information" to avoid accidental deletion of important bookmarks; The ++ program is packaged with Inno Setup, which supports silent installation and adds a parameter. download link: http://www.qiuquan.cc/browser/360chrome.html Similarly, there is a post in the Russian forum ( http://forum.ru-board.com/topic.cgi?forum=5&topic=49673#1) which is also about modifying the 360 security browser, you can also use this version

    This software is for advanced users only as stated in the instructions. I download the compressed archive. I then create a scheduled task for it. The experimental DWMGlass.dll is simply copied to the Aeroglass folder, overwriting the original.

    The My Passport accepted the commands for 8K, 16K, 32K, and 64K but I did not commit them. I am concerned that Windows 98SE would crash before I could reset it back to 4K or less. It crashes with 4K without my Terabyte Plus Package due to buffer overruns. I haven't tried 520 or 528.

    I know it's a bit of a bump and I wish I found this thread earlier, but I wanted to confirm that the WD Formatter still works today. I used it on 2x 10TB Bestbuy WD Easystore drives and was able to create 5x fat32 partitions on each drive that work both under xp and win7. I learned something too as I was not aware that the formatter will allow changing the drive back to 512e in win7.

    OK - so we're all up to date (by my own set criteria anyway.) So far, the system is still running awesome. So a few things: I intentionally skipped the March 2018 Security-Only Update (KB4088880), since it houses mitigations for Spectre and Meltdown. I was concerned that skipping it MIGHT introduce performance issues because later updates required it to be present. So far, that has not happened. Now remember that I started updating the system with the July 2019 update first, and worked backwards to installing the final update from December 2017. Three updates were not installed: December 2018 (KB4471326), February 2018 (KB4074589) and January 2018 (KB4056899) all reported that they were not required for this system, and I'm guessing that these three updates were superseded by later ones. I shall keep you all posted, and I'm hopeful that I can just continue updating from here on in.

    That article addresses using secure Web sites whose certificates were signed using SHA2. We've had that for some time. (The questioner wanted to backport the SHA2 Web certificate support to XP SP2.) Unfortunately, using SHA2 to sign code (e.g., updates) requires support in different parts of the OS, so the support for SHA2 Web certificates doesn't really help.

    No issues on my end either. Hopefully we are close to a full release @bigmuscle If more time is still needed, pls consider releasing a 'beta' for registered license keys w/o the debug window & watermark. Thx for your continued work on AG!

    No, WSUS Offline doesn't download updates for WEPOS, WES09 and POSReady 2009, they don't contain XP in their names. Older WSUS Offline versions downloaded updates for XP Embedded, but these updates were filtered out starting from 9.2.2 build. However, you can still download version 9.2.1 and use it. WSUS Offline downloads current WSUS database, but it also create its own database (which may provide links for third party tools, custom, non-public updates or whatever the developer finds appropriate). It's possible to run the program from Windows 7 and download needed files even when MS start to use only SHA-2 hashes - probably as long as the updates are available in Update Catalog. The program provides static links, so it will be possible to re-download some files ever later, when they are removed from WSUS database and catalog but still exist on download servers.

    Hi jumper, These links to posts no longer work, due to syntax changes at MSFN. For the first one, "page__view__findpost__p__1028960" at the end of the URL needs to be changed to "?do=findComment&comment=1028960". The other two similarly. Joe.

    There were different variants for the MP10 and MP11, especially during the transition from sp2 to sp3. Now nobody knows in advance which of the variants of the MP the user has installed. An update that is not required for the existing version of the MP will not be installed anyway. I also have 2 variants of MP 11 available, where I tested it. In addition, I assume that a user, at the later time when AU / WU / MU is no longer available to install the updates via a control file. Hardly a user would like to install the mass of updates manually.

    Well, the site might be using ECC or SNI that XP AFAIK doesn't have, i'm currently not at home so can't confirm it

    Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that IDA (x64-only by the way) recalculates pointers. I do think that it would be important for the drivers because dropping that part in would (presumably) relocate everything below it. You may have better success sticking it below everything though there is, yet again, very low confidence with regards to attaining the intended feature. You may be better off changing the version numbers. BWC is an "assembler guru" (unlike me) and would be probably be able to get to the bottom of this.

    You're right, without HTTPSProxy running, it will not display.

    win2k doesn't natively support running multiple monitors on a single GPU unlike XP so vendors hacked in support through their drivers. Have you tried swapping out the new nview.dll (or possibly all other associated dlls) with the old one? I looked through my 258.96 version of nView and found "EnableWin2kDualView" in notepad, but not in IDA so no way of disassembling it and sticking it into a newer version (at least at my extremely low level of ability). This is where I found that API function in a hex editor. Try dropping it in below "NvGetWindowsDisplayState" in your existing nview.dll if the old one doesn't work. I may not be the best at hex but it appears to be 45 6E 61 62 6C 65 57 69 6E 32 6B 44 75 61 6C 56 69 65 77 at memory addresses 10187650 and 10187660 (in this version: later ones may be different). When disassembled it looks like this: .rdata:10187638 aNvgetwindowsdi db 'NvGetWindowsDisplayState',0 .rdata:10187638 ; DATA XREF: sub_10087710+6E↑o .rdata:10187651 align 4 .rdata:10187654 aEnablewin2kdua db 'EnableWin2kDualView',0 .rdata:10187654 ; DATA XREF: sub_10088480+64↑o If all else fails, the only viable solution would be to pair another card with your high-end one (which is natively supported by Windows 2000; it supports up to 9 cards).

    Looking forward to seeing the updated list. I could swear I saw a list here before somewhere that someone (heinoganda maybe? ) posted that had links for all of the POSReady 2009 updates, but now I can't seem to find it. Did this exist or am I confused? Server 2003 is important because there are and/or may be more useful things in it that might eventually be backportable to XP (replacement USBPORT.SYS to go along with the 64GB RAM patch, and STORPORT.SYS are two good examples). I tend to think of Vista in the same way; it's closer to XP than Windows 7, so maybe there are useful things there. Also in the case of Vista, the fact that it has so few users now makes it even more likely that its updates will really go into the "memory hole." XP's files should survive, and Windows 7 will as well, but Vista is more "endangered." Given our group of Vista diehards here I'm surprised no one seems to have at least some kind of list..

    > don't work as expected on the newer compilations Have you tried comparing app process snapshots of each setup? Use something like NirSoft's CProcess.exe to save a list of an app's process modules including version of each file in use.

    New Moon only comes in a 7z archive, Mypal comes with an installer. Might also be worth out of curiosity looking over at the SeaMonkey 2.49.5 development because some FF52 Gecko post-EOL patches are there and the x86 versions still support XP/Vista (they are intentionally meant to be supported btw), you could potentially be a really good contributor to SM development in some way or another if ever you wanted to maybe :p

    To be picky (as I am BTW) the FreeDOS MBR expects - just like the DOS one - an active partition, whilst the FreeDOS PBR (or bootsector) of the active partition will expect the KERNEL,SYS instead of the IO.SYS BUT you can still use the FreeDOS SYS command with the /OEM:W9x switch, http://help.fdos.org/en/hhstndrd/base/sys.htm jaclaz

    FreeDOS doesn't work well with Windows 98 setup program. You need to have MS-DOS from either Windows 98SE or ME bootdisk to make setup program work correctly. Sadly, you can't just replace the files, as FreeDOS MBR you have now expects KERNEL.SYS, not IO.SYS. Make a bootable USB/CD/floppy of 98SE or ME bootdisk, and use it to FDISK, FORMAT, and copy system files (COMMAND.COM and IO.SYS) to the drive with the installation files. Make sure to mark the partition as active in FDISK, if you have problems with this, use /ACTOK switch with fdisk. Also make sure the partition is less than 127GB. Use percentage, instead of fixed size number in FDISK to help with that. Do note that FDISK shows wrong numbers for large disks, so just ignore them. You can also try using HIMEMX.EXE with the /MAX=524288 parameter to limit the RAM to 512MB, as 98SE works best with 512MB of RAM or below with NO errors. Also don't forget to use "/p i" switch so you don't have ACPI errors with modern PCs.

    I think you just have to tell palemoon.exe (or whatever browser) where the profile folder is when you start it; e.g., put a one-line .bat file (say, portablemoon.bat) in the palemoon directory of your flash drive, which does this: ... then you can just double-click portablemoon.bat and it will look for the profile in palemoon\profile directory of your flash drive.

    I currently do everything in WinXP. I created the mini-Win7 virtual machine for over a year, I started it only for testing and tuning, and the system was very solid. I'll probably need it sometime, and it's convenient to keep it ready. Certainly if I were to use the virtual machine over and over again it would be time to abandon WinXP, but for now I don't even see the need for it. The meaning of the thread is that the death of WinXP can be postponed indefinitely, in a future that is currently not predictable. I use VirtualBox 4.3.36 of 2016/01, the last officially supported and definitely working version in WinXP; for 5x the operation in WinXP should be verified, I did not find significant information on the Internet. As an operating system I only tested this mini-Win7, I don't expect I need more complete or modern systems. Among other things, the .vhd file can also be started autonomously from boot, as a secondary operating system for maintenance; and in reality this was the use envisaged by Wimb2, I believe the use as a virtual machine is my invention. I always try to use the minimum tool that allows me to achieve my goals. As a browser I almost always use NM27, the only one that supports the "Print pages to PDF" extension that I use a lot; more rarely I use portable NM28, or Firefox 52. I keep strictly away from sites that are too "trendy" or "experimental"; and in any case for the basic functions NM27 it is sufficient, for example I can download files and consult documentation on Github (and actually also works IExplorer6). As primary defense system I use secpol.msc, much more convenient than PSExec Sysinternals; settings can be changed on the fly and take effect immediately, no need to restart programs. I attach screenshot. Greetings

    Since June 18, all free versions that are below version 14 no longer work. It seems that the latest version that runs on XP is 14.2.8352. Here is a link where you can download it: https://dl.teamviewer.com/download/version_14x/14.2.8352/TeamViewer_Setup.exe Wrote here so that others can download the working version.

    If @heinogandacan't do it, nobody can! There are times when you do have to just give things up and move on to other options, of which there are still plenty.

    You don't need to run the installer. Just open it with 7-Zip, extract the chrome.7z, and unpack the 7z file! Also User Data will be created in its folder, kinda portable!

    ... Dumb question, but has it been verified via Dependency Walker that the new engine file still remains XP incompatible? Engine version 1.1.16000.6 (file mpengine.dll) works OK under Vista SP2, too...
