  1. Yep, the problem still exists. The forum will not let you have "b oot.ini" (without the space) in your post.
  2. @Wunderbar98, Sorry I'm very late with this comment, but as to the thread renaming, perhaps renaming the thread something like "Running Windows 98 in 2020 and beyond, without anything not officially released by MS specifically intended for Win98" would satisfy your requirement to distinguish this thread from others, yet remove the "offending" term "Vanilla". As thread creator, I assume you can do this. I hope you are well, my friend. Cheers and Regards
  3. The drivers for Win7, 8, 8.1 were often bundled together. I would be more concerned that this is designated a driver for a desktop, while you are looking for one for a notebook. But since you say that you have used it for a similar notebook yourself, then it's probably worth giving it a shot.
  4. I thought my driver collection went back that far, but the oldest I could find is the generic nVidia v365.10_x86 from 5/2/2016, notebook-win8-win7-32bit-international-whql.exe, if that would help.
  5. Very true, and I should have noted that membership is required to view the content originally, and have done so now. I don't want to minimize @wkeller's work in any way (he is also a member here) so I won't copy the post here, but I will give you a teaser by listing all of the various browsers mentioned in that post. You'll need to either look them up yourself or sign up and go to the post I linked to above for the links (xxxxxxx) to the download locations. As far as being actively updated, he has already added the SRWare Iron links I sent him and posted here earlier. So here are all of the Windows 7 compatible browsers I am aware of, thanks to @wkeller ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Firefox fully supports Windows 7 until September 2024 (xxxxxxx), so you can download any version before that date. The newest version at the time of writing is v115.3 ESR and it can be updated automatically. In case of Chromium based browsers, you should download any version with engine v109 or earlier or use new Supermium or Google Chrome crack projects. Chrome xxxxxxx - latest 32-bit version. xxxxxxx - latest 64-bit version. If you want to install it for all users (ie. system level) read --> xxxxxxx.

Last stable version (for Win7) --> xxxxxxx Latest version (for WinSever 2012 but should be working on Win7): --> xxxxxxx Supermium The aim of Supermium is to provide the latest Chromium features, support for rendering the web and security patches to users of Windows 7 32/64 bit: xxxxxxx Google Chrome crack - Windows 7 This is workaround to launch latest Google Chrome or Opera on Windows 7. 32/64-bit: xxxxxxx Catsxp Chinese Chromium based browser, compatible with Windows 7 32/64 bit: xxxxxxx Yandex Russian browser based on Blink engine and Chromium project, that still supports Windows 7. 32/64 bit: xxxxxxx Thorium Another Chromium fork that still provides Windows 7 releases.

  6. For the most up-to-date list I have found of Windows 7 compatible browsers, look here.[1] Even though the post is in the middle of a thread, it is actively maintained and regularly updated with current information. It lists over a dozen different chrome variants and a half dozen Firefox variants, along with info on how to slim and harden Firefox variants in general and some registry entries to suppress unsupported OS warnings in Chrome. In addition to the ones listed above, yet another Windows 7 compatible Chrome variant that I have used for a number of years is SRWare Iron. There are installer and portable versions available for both x32 and x64. Cheers and Regards [1] - You will have to become a member of mydigitallife.net, if you are not already, in order to see the content
  7. For the last Windows 7 compatible version of Brave, go here - https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/releases/tag/v1.47.186 - (that is the official release site, so you know you're not getting anything hinky), scroll down and download >>brave-v1.47.186-win32-x64.zip<< Expand that where you want it and create a shortcut to "brave.exe" which will launch Brave v1.47.186 x64. If you're able to run the latest version of Brave, simply download either BraveBrowserSetup.exe or BraveBrowserSetup32.exe from the same page and run them, which will fetch and install the latest available version from their official servers. Cheers and Regards
  8. Yes and no. On the one hand I understand your point that the notification of nothing is not "usually" normal. But on the other, what it is doing is the same as if you had manually asked it to check for updates. If you did that and you didn't get a response if there were no new updates, then you would be right to complain that it should at least confirm that you are running the latest release, correct? So it seems to me that having this harmless confirmation that there is no new version when you install a new Windows build is a much better situation than getting no response when you check for updates manually when there is no new version, which, for most people, will be a much more frequent occurrence. Yes, I suppose logic code could probably be added to check to see if this update request was occurring for the first time for this build and was not manually triggered, but it doesn't really seem that important. Just my opinion.
  9. @Sampei.Nihira, Which browser is that you are using above?
  10. Oh WOW! I am so sorry to hear that. I wondered why we haven't seen that many posts from him in quite a while. Den was also very kind and helpful to me. He and Trip have been the two mods that I have personally interacted with the most over the years.. Thank you very much for sharing this sad news, Dave. May he rest in peace. EDIT: Looking back over my old records I was reminded that Den and I joined MSFN within a few weeks of each other, which means nothing, really, but was just something we had in common.
  11. Go here - http://www.opendrivers.com/download/driver-83547.html The "Official Server 1" link didn't work for me, but go down to the bottom of the page and find the "Backup Server" link. That worked for me. Cheers and Regards
  12. Maybe a dumb question Dave, but any chance the "space" in "E:\Dump Folder" is involved somehow? You might want to try a different folder on E:, one without a space, just for a test. Cheers and Regards
