  1. Xeno86, Thank you. This is the project that just keeps giving. Wonderful work. My old Thinkpad continued to be relevant because of your great work. cure
  2. I tried the files. Three failed entirely, two reported an error but opened, plus there were four dotx files that I and the converter were unfamillar with.Again, I would be happy to provide the crash log for each, but I need to be told where to find it. PS Why do the pair of docx files that I am trying to attach here fail to post?

Set .msi to NT or XP compabitility Double click on it to install Set AcroRD32.exe, and not just the shortcut to it, to NT or XP compabitility AND use "don't use these settings in child processes" (if only the shortcut is set, then any program calling the execute will have a problem) (the unstable preference page of Acrobat Reader 'seems' to run better with the child setting) Delete the following registry settings lest Window Explorer suffer long hangs whenever there are PDF files in the current folder and they are clicked upon: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{F9DB5320-233E-11D1-9F84-707F02C10627} HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Acrobat.AcroAXDoc.1 HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AcroExch.Document HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AcroExch.Document.7 HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shellex\ColumnHandlers\{F9DB5320-233E-11D1-9F84-707F02C10627} Manually associate with pdf files and icon of choice via Explorer/Tools/Folder Options/PDf/Avanced/New and Icon Set as default Registry work to taste: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\7.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cWebSearchView\cPositions\cInternal] "bHidden"=dword:00000001 "iDockPosition"=dword:00000000 "iLayout"=dword:00000000 "iOffset"=dword:00000000 "iOrder"=dword:00000032 "iStack"=dword:00000000 "bWindowHidden"=dword:00000000 "iFrameB"=dword:000000000 "iFrameR"=dword:00000000 "iFrameT"=dword:000000000000000 "iFrameL"=dword: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\7.0\Originals] "bDisplayedSplash"=dword:00000001 "bAllowOpenFile"=dword:00000000 "iDefaultZoomScale"=dword:00000000 "bDownloadEntireFile"=dword:00000000 "benableDDR"=dword:00000001 "bWrapLongBookmarks"=dword:00000001 "iThumbViewScale"=dword:00002001 "bBrowserIntegration"=dword:00000001 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\7.0\FeatureLockdown "bCreatePDFOnline"=dword:00000000 "bShowAdsAllow"=dword:00000000 "bEFIPrintMe"=dword:00000000 "bPurchaseAcro"=dword:00000000 "bUpdater"=dword:00000000 "bRegisterProduct"=dword:00000000 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\7.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cWebSearchView\cPositions\cInternal "bHidden"=dword:0000001 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\7.0\TaskButtons] iEBookTask = dword:0x00000001 Delete Websearch.js file located in the JavaScript folder Load a sample pdf in a brower, right click on bar, uncheck Internet Search Plugins to taste (may be taken from full install of Acrobat Reader 7 or even Acrobat Professional 7): Accessibility.api AcroForm.api (plus Acroform file) EScript.api EWH32.api MakeAccessible.api PDDom.api reflow.api SaveAsRTF.api Search.api weblink.api Preferences: shut off Java Script (leaves forms working) Printing: select print to file
  4. Now we would like crash logs / those files. Where do I find the crash log? (A search of *.log with today's date turned up nothing). Equally, the docx files are actually student papers from my archive so I can't just post them. I might be able to do something with email after stripping off names. Please send me a PM.
  5. I repeated the experiment with the latest version that I could find: 12.0.6500.5000. It works at least as well and probably better.
  6. I used Orca to delete the launch conditions of O12Conv.msi from FileFormatConverters.exe version 12.0.6015.5000. Started the O12Conv.msi and it installed with one reboot and a scanregw error. I tried a dozen docx files using Word 2002. Perhaps 7 converted perfectly. Three converted but with this error: "There was an error opening file." Two failed to converted with this error in Wordconv: "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down." As expected pptx files failed to convert. Any thoughts on whether the latest version of the converter might yield better results? Impressive work in any case. Thanx.
  7. KM is to be recommmended. I have been using for years and always update to the latest stable version whenever I reinstall my 98ME OS. The one downside is that the K-meleon website is something of a disaster, with badly outdated info, links, and extensions. Contemporary answers can of course be found in the forum, but it makes for a far from seemless experience.
  8. The solution, for me at least, was to install option 3 of 98SE2ME. That may or may not drop the icon by itself, but it definitely drops it in combination with the registry instructions.

    Adding printing too but that did not help. I pulled out an old Netgear 614 router and used an unencrypted wireless connection and met with no success.

    Ah, the plot thickens . . . . I suspected that it might be the router, so I then tried the ad-hoc, but it didn't work either. Share-level is in effect. I tried just sharing files and not printers. Perhaps adding printer will make a difference? As to the router, it has DD-WRT on it should be amenable, at least with the right settings, to just about anything. Unfortunately my search of DD-WRT and Netbeui yielded nothing that made much sense to me.
  11. Yes, this would be of interest.
  12. Yes, same limitations. I am new to Foobar, so I had not notice. I was mostly looking for a GUI batch converter that used the latest Nero AAC transcoder and could reader FLAC. But a little practice with the program is beginning to impress me. I'll drop you a note if I get stuck with anything. Thanx.

    I have a pair of 98SE installations that have been fully tweaked out with the Kernelex, ME files, and what not. Netbeui, not over TCP, does not want to work on them. I can ping back and forth between them, but each is not even visible to itself in My Network Places. Folders have been shared on each to no avail. I have tried both through an access point and ad-hock. Yes, sharing works just fine with TCP, but for security reasons I wanted to limit the sharing to the non-routable netbeui. Does anyone know whether Netbeui still functions correctly with all the upgrades? Thanx.
  14. A thread in a forum offers very poor functionality as a database. Two possibilities occur to me: a Wikipedia page on Kernelex with a compatibility section or a Google Docs spreadsheet. Either would be editable by any of us as we have more up-to-date information. Thoughts? Other or better solutions?
