    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.

    I have yet to see any evidence of these supposed "misguided people." We have only your word on the subject, which, given your general behavior and attitude, is not necessarily reputable. If one takes the source code for a given program (X) and re-compiles it targeting another platform (Y), how is it NOT "X for Y"? These programs are open source. If someone chooses to recompile them targeting a different platform, they have every right to do so, whether you like it or not. Good luck switching to "closed source," drop back by in a few years when you reach a closed-source state equivalent to the current open-source one you "leeched" from Mozilla. I've seen how you deal with these "poor ___ Linux builders" as you refer to them. You drop in, make demands and threats, create a general atmosphere of negativity that poisons the waters and turns everyone off, all the while hoping that no one stands up to your bullying. Most people eventually give in and give up, not willing to deal with your constant attacks. I'm afraid that modus operandi will not work here. I know for a fact that roytam's New Moon 27 builds are in fact named "New Moon" and not "Pale Moon" and do include a disclaimer on the About dialog that states the build is unofficial and specifically says not to request help on the official Pale Moon forum or otherwise. This thread is also mentioned. So what more do you expect? If the supposed "misguided people" you refer to are too ignorant to read and abide by these disclaimers then nothing else is going to stop them either. In the end all of these programs, including yours and those of Moonchild Productions, descend from Firefox or other Mozilla sources. The "chain of descent" is there, and it is not going away because someone changes a name or writes a disclaimer. Even if the name were changed, what happens when someone simply asks "what is this based on?" When the answer is given no one can control how others may use that piece of information to seek out the project's "upstreams." Even after all this ranting you still have not made any set of concrete "minimal acceptable changes" from your point of view. You keep changing them based on your level of annoyance each time you post. First it's change a name. Then it's full branding. Then "unofficial branding" is OK. Then it isn't. You noted at one point that mentions of the original names would be necessary for "profile compatibility reasons." Now, "ALL THE ORIGINAL NAMES MUST GO!" This is beyond ridiculous. Maybe roytam isn't a good graphics artist? I myself certainly wouldn't want to have to undertake the task of creating new "branding" that is worthy of the underlying code here. I'm no programmer, but I would take bets that changing the names and such would also create more headaches for roytam and his users in the fact that this could cause Addons and other associated applications to not recognize roy's builds, thereby forcing him or his users to manually modify every single Addon or associated application in order to get it working as it should. If my assumption of this is correct, what reasonable person with a life and better things to do who would choose this path? I'm sorry, but no truly serious user of these builds has any confusion whatsoever about what they are using. If the official installer(s) won't run on your non-supported platform and you had to get a build from here, that's self explanatory. And, if you're running on a supported platform where the official installer(s) work, that's self explanatory as well, and why would you come here in the first place? Covered this above, but once again - "If one takes the source code for a given program (X) and re-compiles it targeting another platform (Y), how is it NOT "X for Y"?" You "don't want to hear" these things because you don't like the fact that someone had the gall and took the time to compile your project for a different target platform that you disapprove of. That's the beauty of open source. Also once again - "Good luck switching to "closed source," drop back by in a few years when you reach a closed-source state equivalent to the current open-source one you "leeched" from Mozilla." See above about causing issues with Addons and associated applications. You claim that there is some "advantage" in the changes you are demanding when it seems more likely that this will only create more work for the developer. I see no advantage whatsoever to be gained by these projects from your suggestions, only that you just want things your way. I don't speak for roytam, but if I were in his shoes I would be all the less inclined to acquiesce to any of your demands simply based on your behavior. You have chosen to act in a condescending and demanding manner laced with threats to keep throwing roadblocks in the way of or create problems in any way possible for roytam's projects. On the other side, you create more annoyance for yourself by coming here and ranting about supposed "misguided users" who are troubling you, when it would be simpler (and probably better for your health) just to tell them off and go on about your day. You appear to thrive on creating a negative environment and beating dead horses. And, in the end, if you decide to try and make good on your threats then you will create more work for yourself in rewriting closed-source code to replace the open-source code you "borrowed" but don't like others "borrowing." Based on this and in the interest of civility I will state that I believe this "discussion" is never going anywhere. Please stop wasting everyone's time with your threats, condescension, and negative attitude. These will get you nothing here, except an end to OUR "diplomacy."

    > Oh crap, Tobin's here.. what insanity does he have this time? WELL non-existant but likely quote, I am gonna clarify both the Navigator version reduction and the deal with FUEL. The reason the version was changed to a lower version is because I intend to start making releases of what is essentially an unfinished product and thus isn't 1.0 quality. I announced this would be happening eventually some months ago but other priorities have delayed it. When it does happen, consider it a public beta and technology preview with a goal of reaching a true 1.0 status. As for fuel.. As Australis Technology progressed, FUEL was an ancient developmental burden in the eyes of Firefox developers. It was eventually depercated and removed from Firefox. Proper Basilisk comes from a time where FUEL was long gone and the Australis Technology progressed (or is that regressed) the specific capabilities of the browser application code. It doesn't make much sense with the custom Australis Based UI of the main window. As for its deprecation in Pale Moon.. As you may know, the specific Application code for Pale Moon 28 is actually an uplifted and evolved form of code that started life in 2013 as Firefox 24 modified for Pale Moon 24 though 26, ported to Tycho for Pale Moon 27, and ported again to UXP for Pale Moon 28. There is absolute continuity for the application specific code from 2013 to today regardless of the platform codebase. This has been my design and the bulk of my research and contribution over the past five years. Pale Moon has stayed Pale Moon as I have promised so shall it is. I considered removing FUEL but decided against it for extension compatibility reasons and instead added a deprecation warning so that forks and new extensions do not use the component. It is not outside the realm of possibility it could be removed at a future date but it is exceedingly improbable. Think what you will about me and how I conduct my self but truth be told I have been the driving force for years in ensuring as much compatibility with extensions as reasonably can be achieved and the general continuity of Pale Moon AS what everyone expects Pale Moon to be. Without that influence over the years, I shudder to think what might have happened. Likely potential eventualities may have followed a path similar to the likes of Cyberfox and Waterfox. We shall never know because not only will my influence never be wiped out and I shall never be stopped from continuing forward on the path I helped to lay out. Sometimes you have to accept the good with the bad and perhaps I am neither.. Or perhaps I am all those things and more.

    I think another problem is hardware support. Vista cannot be installed on anything following Intel's Ivy-Bridge. Some users have luck with AMD's Ryzen, but most people still have Intel systems. It may seem odd (and it is), that Vista doesn't install on anything after Ivy-Bridge, considering a lot of Windows 7 drivers actually work on Vista. This is further exemplified with Windows XP, which is left with scarce NT5.x drivers on newer hardware, but yet, actually can install with proper SATA drivers. I'm sure there are a few members here that would install Vista on second partition if it were practical. Security and FUD certainly play a role in the declining market-share. Although most FUD was centered around XP, Windows 7's "your computer will explode if you use the internet" day is coming quickly. Some people who have Vista probably see Windows 7's EOL as a reminder or something of the sort. Most of all however, is browser support. Roytam1's Pale Moon and Firefox 56(?) back-ports are excellent, but the average user is only going to think about Chrome and Firefox which are both no longer updated.

    So shocked to hear this, it was only a month or so ago that I was corresponding with Rudolph about a disk partition alignment program that he had just built. I use several of his programs, to enhance my Windows 98 installation, and to do things like applying TRIM to my FAT32 SSD. He was an absolute genius, up with the very top experts on this forum IMO. 67 is no age to go nowadays. RIP Rudolph.

    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

    And another one from television, namely a fuzzy image of the unmistakable Luna guiding fire fighters to an emergency in St. Louis, MO, as seen on the August 19 episode of the American TV series Live Rescue: And here's a bonus sighting, one that could get me banned: What would the world do without Windows NT 5.x?

    Trying to build it now. Despite the fact that I'm building on WinXP, I still had to explicitly tell it to build for WinXP: perl Configure VC-WIN32 -D_WIN32_WINNT=0x0501 Without the -D just about every test failed; apparently the stupid Configure script just assumes Win 7+ rather than grabbing the version it's actually running on . That may explain why so many of the "compatible with XP" builds aren't actually compatible with XP. Edit: Final (apparently XP-compatible) build of OpenSSL v1.1.1b is about 3 MB when written to a .7z archive file. You can download it from my company's Web site.

    @roytam1 It looks like you have now seen your own proof it works without SSE, but here is mine anyway, just in case you want to see. The browser is a bit sluggish, as expected, due to no real GPU and an old budget processor, but it does indeed work on this MMX-only Mendocino CPU.

    Hi RoyTam1, tested your Serpent 52 Non-SSE2 test build, It's working beautifully on my Pentium III 1.4GHz. Once I finish tweaking it I expect it to run even better. But even as of now, discord web (which, if you aren't familiar, is very bloated and slow, even a bit sluggish on my Core Duo ThinkPad) is quite usable on the PIII using that browser. It's truly amazing. I'd imagine you may find more optimizations to make, as the build is in it's infancy. Keep up the good work, dude!

    The task manager shows not only the memory consumption, but also virtual memory, the swap file. Therefore, applications can use a lot of virtual memory without consuming RAM.

    Notice: These projects have no affiliation with any upstream community code sources or organizations. Please direct all support or related questions to here. "Serpent", "New Moon", "MailNews" are generic debranded names and they are subject to change in the future. Archive directory names and archive filenames will only be changed once generic debranded names are not used in the future. Latest changelog is available here as well: http://rtfreesoft.blogspot.com/search/label/browser Serpent/UXP browser (MCP reforked 52ESR as new base), and NM28XP releases: Binaries are moved to here: (I'm lazy to edit all previous posts) https://o.rths.ml/palemoon/?sort=date&order=desc BOC related binaries: Binary list: https://o.rths.ml/boc-uxp/?sort=date&order=desc FAQ: Q: Having audio distorted when watching Twitter/etc.? A: Please try turning on "Firefox compatibility" in options dialog or either "general.useragent.compatMode = 2" or "general.useragent.compatMode.firefox = true" in about:config and reload the page. Q: Can't play H264 clips? (for PM27/KM76) A: Download following packages for your browser edition(32bit/64bit) and extract DLLs to same place as palemoon.exe lives. 32bit LAV dlls are in separated package (extracted from K-Lite codec pack 13.5.5) https://o.rths.ml/palemoon/lav.7z Just in case if you have an older processor which has no SSE instruction set support: 32bit NoSSE (ffmpeg 3.1.1 lite build) https://o.rths.ml/palemoon/lav-dll-lite-mmx.7z 32bit No ASM (ffmpeg 3.1.1 lite build, if build above doesn't work on your processor) https://o.rths.ml/palemoon/lav-dll-lite-noasm.7z 64bit LAV dlls are in separated package (LAV Filters 64bit 0.70.2) https://o.rths.ml/palemoon/lav64.7z Q: AV1 Support? (for UXP-based applications except mailnews) A: You need to enable "media.av1.enabled" in about:config Q: VP9 Support? (for PM27) A: VP9 works if async MSE option is unchecked and "Enable MSE for WebM Video" checked in options. Q: Extensions/Themes not working after updating binaries. A: If you encounter extensions not show icon, clicking options button of extension causing browser unresponsive, etc. please try following actions: 1.a Killing palemoon.exe process 1.b Copy whole extensions folder out of profile folder (to somewhere else for example, desktop) 1.c Restart browser without restoring previous sessions 1.d Goto about:addons page 1.e Drop XPI files from the copied-out extensions folder to about:addonss page One-by-One. 1.f After all XPI files are dropped and installed/updated, restart browser Q: Virus detected?

    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 :-(

    My Vista drive was removed from my machine over a year ago. The reason is very simple; no more browser support. The web browser is the point of entry of all things malicious and the most important software suite on any machine, from a security perspective.

    so build time is shrunk into 1/3 because of shiny new 3700x 8C/16T (in -j11 instead of -j6 as cl.exe can use up more than 1 core) instead of old 1230v2 4C/8T, and also SSD instead of 7200rpm HDD.

    Well... we may have a problem: I cannot find any report after Sep 10! So it seems the report system is malfunctioning. I'll ask xper to give it a look. Meanwhile you can keep posting or PMing if needed. I'll sure keep y'all posted on how it develops.

    I doubt it. According to statcounter, XP's market share was 1.75% in March; Windows 98SE's share was 2.7% in July 2006 when it ended support. Nonetheless. there is still the possibility that later today (4/1) M$ may make the decision to extend XP support forever...

    After next month, there probably won't be much point. Once we have the final POSReady '09 updates, someone can create an "unofficial SP5" containing unofficial SP4 plus all the POSReady updates (except any found to be defective). That will be pretty much it for XP updates (unless there's a major malware attack and M$ decides to make a rare exception, as they did with WannaCry).

    It's ironic how people decry the older operating systems like W2k Pro as outdated, yet can't even trust newer Windows 7 or Windows 10 systems far enough to let them update. These days, generally speaking, lots of new stuff sucks--because people take it for granted that new stuff is better. From that presumption, lazy thinking ensues, and movement replaces progress. So, although we still "go," we go backwards instead of forward. Windows illustrates the regression.

    @Dave-H : A check of "cote.co.uk" on SSL Labs Server test page https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=www.cote.co.uk confirms what has already been reported; just scroll down to the Handshake Simulation section: ... and see that IE11 only works on Win10 ! As to why, I think I have some clues: I couldn't help noticing how that server was configured: Only TLS 1.2 version is enabled, and only 3 cipher suites for that protocol version: Now, IE11 uses the cipher suites available in the OS's "Microsoft Schannel Provider" library; however, different Windows versions support different sets of cipher suites: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/secauthn/cipher-suites-in-schannel If one checks the available suites on Win7: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/secauthn/tls-cipher-suites-in-windows-7 one cannot find any of the three cipher suites needed for connection to the server in question... OTOH, checking the available cipher suites on Win10 v1903: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/secauthn/tls-cipher-suites-in-windows-10-v1903 one can find the first preferred (by the server) cipher suite, TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256, as available, hence the TLS 1.2 handshake succeeds and the site loads in IE11/Win10! However, I don't have answers as to why Chrome 49/WinXP[SP3] also succeeds, unless, of course, ProxyHTTPSProxy is used with it... BTW, Chrome 49 does open the site successfully here, Vista SP2 32-bit, but I do have installed WinServer 2008 updates that enable TLS 1.2 support: Perhaps Chrome 49 has native support for that cipher suite and only uses the Windows Store for certificates, NOT using Schannel like IE does (I'm sorry, my Chrome related knowledge is limited, have only been a Firefox fan from the start!) ... Cheers

    The x64 beta seems to completely support XP x64, so there may be a slight possibility of a x86 build coming.

    As an addition to what TrevMUN said, if youre going to get any BSOD related to acpi.sys (even if you don't, it is still worth replacing the file), make sure you slipstream the relevant acpi.sys mod, which can be found here. The link also contains a generic USB 3.0 driver. Here are the instructions on replacing this file in the installation medium.

    Hi ; what you report is to be expected, not a surprise at all... ; let me explain: 1. SM 2.49.x is built on the Mozilla ESR 52 platform, same as Firefox ESR 52.x.x; for legal and cost reasons, Firefox doesn't come bundled with its own patented decoders (h264, aac), unlike Google Chrome (Google can afford the huge sums of money needed for the licenses payable to the MPEG group to bundle their patented decoders with the Chrome binaries). In order to decode HTML5 MP4 video, Firefox must access the OS-provided patented decoders (the cost of which is included in the price of the OS, i.e. Microsoft, rather than Mozilla, paid for it...) Unfortunately, the mechanism that gives access to these OS-provided decoders is Windows Media Foundation (WMF) framework, available only in Vista SP2 (with Platform Update + Platform Update Supplement) and higher, NOT in WinXP ; hence, SM 2.49.5 on XP can't decode HTML5 instagram video (or any other HTML5 mp4 video for that matter), as XP lacks WMF and associated M$ provided decoders. And no, installed codec packs won't do the job! If you like, you are faced with the same predicament as in the pinned thread below: This is just an educated guess on my part, but since SM 2.49.5 is FxESR 52.9.1 based, you could try and implement what is currently valid for enabling HTML5 MP4 playback in FxESR 52.9.1 under XP in the linked thread; not tested myself, SM 2.49.5 has no issues here (Vista SP2 x86) playing back [h264+aac] MP4 files... 2. The bnavigator fork has been built on the UXP application platform; but @roytam1 has long ago patched the platform to fallback to its own patented decoders when WMF is unavailable (the case of XP); the patented decoders in UXP, provided via FFmpeg libraries, are contained within a custom patched version of the ffvpx third party library; it's the same reason the other two UXP browsers, NM28 & St52, can also decode HTML5 MP4 files under XP... I hope it's clear now!

    Really it's mostly a matter of taste. The main difference is the UI: BOC looks very much like SeaMonkey; Serpent looks very much like (pre-Photon) Firefox; NM 28 looks like older (pre-Australis) Firefox. They're all based on UXP though. If you have an older, pre-SSE2 PC, you may want to look at @roytam1's Firefox 45 or NM 27 builds instead.

    Not sure if I can post this here, but... Here's the list of updates I've installed for .NET Framework 4.7.2: Not sure if that's all of them. It's based on my list of previously installed .NET 4.6.1, also have tried installing the older ones I had before, but all of them gave me the "not applicable to your system" error so I don't think there are any more updates to install, aside from the possible May 2019 ones, which I have yet to install. Also, it seems you can't install Language Packs since doing it the normal way yields yet another "not applicable to your os" error, and unpacking the installer with 7-zip and running the other installer (forgot its name) tells you to use setup.exe instead... Note: These are security and quality rollups, I don't know the update numbers for security only updates.

Updated ESET NOD32, Internet & Smart Security products to v12.1.34.0 as these will likely be the final versions of the software to support Vista. Added SoftMaker FreeOffice 2016 Rev 767.0516 to "Office Suites" section as last version for Vista.

    The first time I just installed it over the previous 12.3.4.204 installation, and the installer hung. I then tried reinstalling 12.3.4.204, and it told me there was a more recent version installed! As the usual Adobe test page no longer works, it just redirects to the EOL notice, I tried a few other Shockwave test sites, none of which worked as they should, so I assumed the install was corrupt. Then I uninstalled it, and tried reinstalling 12.3.4.204 which hung again exactly as the 12.3.5.205 installer had done! I wondered if it was trying to connect to something online and not succeeding, so I uninstalled again and tried installing the latest version again with the internet connection disconnected. This time it worked, and very quickly! Whether my theory was right or not I don't know, but it seems to be installed OK now.

    Microsoft ruined Skype the day they bought it. They pretty much ruin everything they touch. Just look at Windows Phone. Windows and Office are the only Microsoft products I use. Everything else is third party/open source.
