  1. v0.41a for 98SE-ME-NT4-2000 on the host v17 works if you use BWC. Eventually I'll get around to patching the latest ver of SDL2 for Windows 2000 and compiling a pcem build for vanilla 2000 but still working on getting my VMs setup. https://github.com/vogonsorg/SDL/issues/1 https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=84578
  2. Not that it has anything to do with the topic but if you have a 64bit processor then with vmware player 2.5.5 or 3.0.1 (with BWC changes) you can run 7 64bit as a guest on a Windows 2000 host. Something to try would be qemu 1.0.1 http://vpsland.superglobalmegacorp.com/install/qemu- or 2.7 (with BWC) on Windows 2000.
  3. 9x vmware-workstation-4.5.3 Qemu 0.15.0 w/kernelex Bochs 2.3.7 Bochs 2.6.11 w/kernelex Bochs 2.7 might work with kernelex https://www.bttr-software.de/download/bochs/ If above requires SSE2 then try Bochs 2.6.6 w/ kernelex
  4. To download Windows Updates for 2000 to Vista: 1. Use your own WSUS server (Win 2022 WSUS goes all the way back to Windows 2000) and point XP to it or 2. Go here https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/restore-windows-update-for-windows-xp-server-2003.82538/ and follow the instructions in the readme for WSUS proxy. The proxy works fine on XP itself so no need to run it on another machine unless you want to update Windows 2000 then you'll need to run the proxy on XP+ and run the minitool on 2000. Verified all this last week on both 2000, XP 32bit and 64bit and Vista 32bit and 64bit (for Vista I used the Windows Update client fix for Vista 6003 instead) https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/restore-windows-update-for-windows-xp-server-2003.82538/ For POS just add the registry key but beware if the CPU doesn't support SSE2.
  5. If you are interested in mods try gzdoom 4.1.3 first, if video card not supported then try lzdoom.

  7. Post here: https://github.com/joncampbell123/dosbox-x/issues
  8. This isn't new: https://github.com/abbodi1406/vcredist/issues/13 If it's been broken since Nov 2020 then it'll likely remain broken. BlackWingCat provides VC++ 2019 redist newer than that but obviously requires KernelEx. "Microsoft Visual C++ 2019 Update 8 Redistributable Package (for Windows 2000 Ex Kernel x86/pc98) 14.28.29325.2"
  9. You can use the version of .NET 4 that Blackwingcat provides on his site. It will not work with vanilla 2000 though.
  10. You don't need steam: For Half-Life v4554 you can be revolutionary and use a steam emulator. I can't be anymore specific on this forum unfortunately. The following games can be combined into the same folder. Use these switches: Counter-Strike (-steam -game cstrike) v4554 Counter-Strike Condition Zero (-steam -game czero) v4554 Day of Defeat (-steam -game dod) v4554 Deathmatch Classic (-steam -game dmc) v4554 Half-Life (-steam -game valve) v4554 Half-Life Blue Shift (-steam -game bshift) v4554 Half-Life Opposing Force (-steam -game gearbox) v4554 Ricochet (-steam -game ricochet) v4554 Team Fortress Classic (-steam -game tfc) v4554 For Half-Life versions >v4554 and if using Windows 2000 then you'll need: *You can also use probably use another steam emulator that is as good as gold but you'll need to use Blackwingcat as well. To be smart and use a steam emulator. If you want to be smart and also use the gui for the steam emulator then you need to install .NET 2.0 SP2 and BlackWingcat .NET 4.0 RC3 (I don't recommend using the GUI anyway. Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redist Blackwingcat Extended kernel Use these switches Counter-Strike (-steam -game cstrike) Counter-Strike Condition Zero (-steam -game czero) Day of Defeat (-steam -game dod) Deathmatch Classic (-steam -game dmc) Half-Life (-steam -game valve) Half-Life Blue Shift (-steam -game bshift) Half-Life Opposing Force (-steam -game gearbox) Ricochet (-steam -game ricochet) Team Fortress Classic (-steam -game tfc)
  11. The last version of Paint.NET I ran on XP was v4.0.6
  12. Last time I tested VLC on various operating systems back in Feb 2019 95 VLC 0.8.4b 98-ME VLC 0.8.6d 98-ME KernelEX VLC 2.2.8 NT4 VLC 0.8.6e 2000 Vanilla VLC 1.1.11 2000 BWC SSE2 VLC 3.0.6 XP VLC 2.2.8 SSE2 VLC 3.0.8 Would be nice if someone had the time to unify VLC versions and provide SSE and SSE2 binaries.
  13. If there was an issue with the files in the package then likely everyone is going to have the same issues, removed since you know the software the best.
  14. You can use WinRM. Connection is encrypted even without https. Setup your firewall rule to only allow inbound to 5985 from wherever you are connecting from. You'll need to use Windows Management Framework 2.0.
  15. Why do you want to bother with Steam on 9x? What games on 9x actually need it? Steam is only needed for Half-Life 2 builds older than v5135, any build after and you can use the command line switches to run without Steam For the builds older than v5135 you have to use an old steam emulator that is revolutionary that I can't mention here For the Steam builds of Half-Life 1 builds >v4554 require SDL2 and can be used with two recent steam emulators that are smart and full of gold. For the Steam builds of Half-Life 1 builds <=v4554 you have to use an old steam emulator that is revolutionary that I can't mention here. Builds of Half-Life >=v4554 require KernelEX on 9x but earlier builds should work fine without it but you're better off with Retail half-life with the unofficial patch on vanilla 9x.
