  1. PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0034&SUBSYS_020A1028&REV_01 I found a WiFi driver for Windows 7 32bit: Dell Wireless 1901 802.11a/b/g/n (2.4GHz and 5GHz). I have some doubts about how well it works, however. I think I'll try the Intel 6235ANHMW.
  2. As for the AR5B22. I can not find any working 32bit WiFi driver for Windows XP and Windows 7. All I found are 64bit versions.
  3. I did try to edit a non-interactive pdf form in firefox 83 in Windows 7, and I failed. Perhaps the function works with interactive forms, as the pdfjs.renderInteractiveForms name suggests. But non-interactive forms is a whole different story. Or perhaps there is some trick to it, I'm not aware of. Here is a non-interactive form I'm trying to fill: http://bip.suwalki.pl/resource/file/download-file/id.71814/attachment.1 It's a declaration related to comunal waste disposal. The city waste disposal charges are calculated according to the forms sent by the building owners.
  4. Is there a way to install Firefox 83 on Windows XP?
  5. I just bought AR5B22 adapter. According to the seller there are XP drivers for WiFi adapter. But, I do not have a solid proof there are XP drivers for Bluetooth. As for the Realtek RTL8821AE, I was able to get it working with XP in Asus EEE PC X101CH. However, I found no XP driver for Bluetoth, as well. Both these Adapters are dual band with integrated Bluetooth. I bought half size mini PCI-E versions.
  6. The Adobe Reader IX works fine with interactive forms. So, there is no problem with them. The setting pdfjs.renderInteractiveForms does nothing with non-interactive forms, I believe. So, the Firefox can not fill non-interactive forms.
  7. Yes I did try the PDF-XChange Viewer. It works better than Adobe Reader when it comes to commenting, but it is unable to fill in non-interactive forms. I mean it is not possible to edit the forms the way Adobe Reader DC does. So it not possible to change the values entered in Adobe Reader DC, as well.
  8. I think filling the forms with Gimp is not a good solution. The Adobe Reader comments are a superior, as they can be modified later. The LibreOffice Draw also is not good as well. The idea is to be as easy to work with as the Adobe Reader DC Fill & Sign is. If the solution is more difficult to use, the users will press on moving to newer OS.
  9. So far, I was able to fill such forms just by using comments in Windows XP. In Adobe Reader DC it is possible to fill non-interactive forms with Fill & Sign tool. But in Adobe Reader XI i found no such a function. Is there a third party tool working in Windows XP able to do the same as Adobe Reader DC Fill & Sign tool?
  10. I decided to put Windows XP on an Asus Eee PC X101CH netbook. But I had a problem with the WifI adapter in it. So, I started to look for a replacement with Windows XP driver support. My first choice was RTL8821AE. It has dual band WiFi and BT. I bought it, installed, but failed to find BT drivers working on Windows XP. My next candidate is AR5B22. It is a bit slower when it comes to the maximum WiFi speed, but it has all the other benefits like dual band and BT. It seems there are the WiFi drivers support for XP. But the advertising ommits XP when comes to BT drivers. So it seems to
  11. Avast abandoned Avast Pro Antyvirus product line. The client with pending subscriptions are switched to Avast Premier with the subscription extended by one month. The whole thing caused quite a disturbance, because when installed Avast product notices the licence properties are different than the installed version it automaticaly installs the version in the licence. There is no user consent in this process, the whole thing happens in the background, and it is not possible to prevent it. When Avast upgrades from Pro Antyvirus to Premier it installs and activates firewall module. Becau
  12. Indeed. OpenSSH 3.7.1 and PUTTY solved the problem. In PUTTY it is possible to set custom terminal sting. In my case it was CMD.EXE /C WOL.EXE [mac address]. Then it is necessary to save this settings to a profile, as it can not be used from the command line. Then call PUTTY with the command line switches PUTTY.EXE -load [profile name] -ssh [user name@][IP adress] -pw [password]. This sequence allows to connect to SSH server without specifying the user name and password, then CMD.EXE /C starts the terminal on the server which closes right after calling WOL.EXE. The result is, us
  13. I have a few observations. - Open SSH Installer creates profiles for all users present during the installation time. Adding another Windows user at later time requires manual adding the new user to the Open SSH database. - While user names are taken from the Open SSH database, passwords are handled by Windows. Finally I was unable to enable the RSA key authentication. It just does not work for me. The help file does not specify in what folders particular server related files should be placed. Also there are some differences with the configuration file names. I do not think the h
  14. Well. I installed the 3.7.1 with the default path. All went just as the help file said, and it works properly, for now. For terminal program I'm using PUTTY, just as I was using with many Linux distributions. The first observation is: it is not possible to use \ character, when configuring custom shell command on connection. The shell has to be available somewhere where PATH variable points to, because of that. It is possible to use CMD.EXE /C to run command on connection and disconnect immediately after that, as well.
  15. Is it possible for two people to connect to the same desktop using WinRM? I mean for two people to see exactly the same deskto and to controll it at the same time? (So, one can see the actions of the other, just as two people connected to the same desktop through VNC). My initial plan is to secure the SSH tunnel with SSL certficates, so no one without a proper client certificate would be able to connect. In this particular case it will not be possible to restrict the access to predetermined IP list, I'm afraid. The requirement is to provide access from anywhere.
