  1. No, there is no x64 version for Windows 8, apparently. Also, the selection seems to be different in x32 and x64 windows versions. I found no "All languages MUI" option, in Firefox Windows 7 x32. - Windows 7 x32 - Firefox - in Windows 10, after selecting language there is x64 version available, also there is no "All languages MUI" option. - Windows 7 x64 - Firefox - in Windows 10, after selecting some language there is no x64 version available, it is necesary to select "All languages MUI" option, then a x64 version option will appear.
  2. I'm trying to install a 64 bit version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC in Windows 7 x64. But, if Windows 7 is selected, there is no x64 version available. I can download just the x32 version. It seems at least Windows 10 has to be selected for the x64 to be available. Also, the x64 is not available if "All languages MUI" is not selected. Can I install a version intended for Windows 10 x64 in Windows 7 x64?
  3. Well. EasyBCD uses drive letters according to the current operating system settings. So, if I set G: in Windows 7 32, it will be C: in Windows 7 64. So, I see no way of changing drive letter assignments using EasyBCD. Perhaps I found a possible workaround. Since the Windows 7 64 wants to have C: as it's partition letter, I can make symbolic links to folders on the old C: partition. It will be possible to retain the compatibility in scripts and settings across multiple operating systems, that way.
  4. I,m trying to install Windows 7 64bit on a drive letter G, while I have Windows XP 32bit on F: and Windows 7 32bit on E:. I could not start the setup on old Windows XP or 7, as it complains it is not x64 system. The only idea I could think of is to install a Windows x64 on some other partition, then assign a correct drive letter for the desired partition G:, then start yet another Windows 7 64bit setup instance and point it to the grive G:. I'm assuming starting setup from existing operating system should preserve assigned drive letters, as it was possible to install Windows 7 23bit on drive E: using existing Windows XP 32bit.
  5. After switching from XP to Windows 7, I found one new feature annoying. Im quite often dealing with large amount of files. It is very convenient for me to see the summary on the disk space used, when selecting large amount of files using just the keyboad. The problem is, if the amout is 16 or more, the summary gets disabled. I have to click "show more information"(translated from Polish) to get the status bar to show the count, but the focus from keyboard selecting is lost, at that moment. Adding another file to the selection disables the status bar, again. Is there a way to disable this feature? Back in the Windows XP, I was able to select as many files as I wanted and the summary was always visible, without having to click anything.
  6. Well. I found yet another solution. It is possible to set a static arp entry inside the remote router to ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff. When a packet is sent to the set IP it is broadcasted through LAN instead of sending it to the IP's specific mac. The hack works with the routers I'm working with. What I'm missing is a command tool able to send WOL to a specific IP in other network. The application I'm using now requires Windows 7, and does not have the command line interface. By the way, the Poweroff does not work with such an approach. -------------------------------------- Found it. WakeMeOnLan from Nirsoft works, and has a command line option.
  7. Everything seems to be fine in the Device Manager. Bluetooth icons are present where they should be. Since the Asus X101CH have just one antenna I had to connect it to the main connector. The auxilary antenna is not connected.
  8. Everything seems to be fine with the driver, but I'm unable to detect any bluetooth device. I can detect it from another Asus X101CH with RTL8821AE and Windows 7. But every attempt at connecting failed. I have to find a driver for Windows 7 in order to test if the adapter is working correctly.
  9. I just installed an Intel 6235ANHMW card in my Asus X101CH. I found just the Windows 7 and newer driver on the Intel site. According to Intel declarations version 21.40.5 is the last one with Windows 7 and 8 support.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Is there a way to install Firefox 83 on Windows XP?
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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?
  19. 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 be a little risky to buy it. But perhaps there are other adapters with confirmed XP support.
  20. 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. Because of that the remote support loses connection to the computer, and the network shares are blocked. In my case it blocked VNC remote access, SMB scaning services, and Network share SMB file backup services from BackupPC servers. According to the Avast support, the feature was meant to correct user mistakes involving installation of a wrong Avast software version. But when connected with online licence renewal services it can cause quite a headache for remote support crew. This is true to Avast Internet Security, as well. If the firewall module was not installed, a forced version switch can install it. I do not know if AVG has the same issues, as the Avast.
  21. 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, user has just to click on the icon on his desktop. The terminal window appears for the moment then closes. The bad side is the link contains login and password. It is possible to create another guest account on the server for this purpose. Still it gives some access to the server. So the user must be trustworthy..
  22. 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 help file was created for this particular Open SSH version.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. For now, I need it to run a command on connection to a remote Windows XP. It will be WOL command. So the Windows XP will be acting as a WOL proxy. Later I will need it as a secure communication channel for TightVNC access, as well.
