  1. Hello,

    Im currenly running ASPI 4.60 in my Win95OSR2, but I was wondering, if there's a way to get the last ASPI 471a2 to work on Win95OSR2.
    According to Adaptec, they recommend not to use this version on Win95, does anyone elaborate,what was the reason?
    The only change in 4.71.2 from earlier versions is that it enables tagged queuing for read/write commands.

    Facebook now defaults to Flash if it detects that you're using Windows XP.
    If you want to use HTML5 you will need to change the browser user agent string for Facebook.com.
    An add-on like "Custom UserAgent String" will do that for you.
    I use that and set the string to "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:57.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/57.0".
    You can of course change the string for all web sites, which I did for quite a while, but I subsequently found that there was a site (britishairways.com) which wouldn't let me log in with that string set, so beware problems like that.
    HTH.

    Thanks for the tip, it worked ! :)


  3. Hi All,

    I have some issues forcing the FF ESR 52.9.0 to play videos in HTML when played in Facebook,although I have HTML5 fully working ,which I have done some time according the the tutorial released here,so example Youtube is playing in HTML5 fine.

    The reason,why I what to switch to HTML5 is, that in my case Facebook videos are played through Flash and in certain videos the sound doesn play at all and I don't know the reason why.Sometimes switching the video to HD solves this problem,but in most cases it does not.I tried several FF addons to block Flash content and force HTML5, but for FB seems it doesn't make any effect at all.

    Does anyone have such experience please?

    Looks good. In the text box add:
      IsDebuggerPresent=GetCurrentProcess
    and click the [ Patch ] button.

    Can you tell me more about where you got the "updated" version of Shell32? Someone used a tool on it that updated the TimeDateStamp to 2017 Jan 17 15:08:39. I would still like to find out what tool that was and test it.

     

    It was just this: SH95UPD v0.0.8 beta

    What tool did you use on 17th of Jan?

    It was not a tool, just a updated version of SHELL32,that I installed.I downgraded today and here is the result from the log.Looks better, however physically no patching was made on the file.

  6. Hi All,

    some time a go I have been using a USB flash disk repair tool from Innostor which installs a MP Filter driver (ISMPUSBFilter.sys).After removing the software the driver remains in the system.On my Win XP x32 I was able to uninstall it via the cmd "RUNDLL32.EXE SETUPAPI.DLL,InstallHinfSection DefaultUninstall 132 c:\infname.inf".However on my Win7 x64 system, the driver is located in the SysWOW64\drivers directory. The cmd doesn't work here and I cannot even find the driver under the device manager ,hidden/nonPnP drivers .

    Any idea please, how to get rid of it on my Win7 x64 system?

    Thanks

    @Comos: Your ImportPatcher log file indicates you didn't click the [ Patch ] button after supplying a replacement string for IsDebuggerPresent. I do see the garbage strings further down in the log. IP seems to be having trouble reading Shell32.dll's import table. I'm looking into it. Thanks for the report!

    Edit:
    Importing from SHELL32.dll
      TimeDateStamp: 2017 Jan 17 15:08:39


    It looks like the modded version of Shell32.dll you ran through ImportPatcher is not completely valid. Please try again with the original file to see if the problem is with ImportPatcher, PE Tools, or another tool that hacked the file back on January 17. Thanks.
     

    Okay.The Shell32 that Im using was a updated one,that somebody did here some year ago.I just found a last version,that I ran on 17th of Jan.I'll downgrade and let you know.


  8. I have been also trying crystal and I think it would be a same patch like on Atto.Altough the sources are available,maybe someone can rebuild it? Same case for CrystalCPUID.Im able to run it, but it reports Sysinfo.dll not found, dunno why, when the dll is in the same dir.

    Hrm... maybe ImportPatcher?

    That looks promising, however Im not able to patch it on my host system.When I patched it, the IsDebuggerPresent is still there.Then I made a log for a check and it seems there's a problem with checking the USE32.DLL?

    Don't know, if the patcher has a problem with my CZ version, or an issue with my USER32.DLL.Check the log, what's your opinion on that.

    If I remember correctly I believe that particular call can sometimes just be patched to something else that is the same length and is present under 95.
    Somewhere there was a discussion of it but it's slipped my memory.
    "GetCurrentProcess" is the suggested replacement function.
    Here are the relevant links:
    This could make more software Win95 compatible.
    SysInternals Forum
    Another solution

    Thanks for the tip. I managed with PE Tools to replace the call, so it runs now on my Win95OSR.However it would be better to edit the whole import table and remove that call completely.Is there a way how to proceed with this?


  11. Hi all,

    I have been facing for some time,that I missed some icons in my systray, so first I tried to clear the systray icon cache with known methods, however the result was random,that I still miss some icons after bootup.This brough me to an conclusion,that the ESET service might cause this behaviour.But then is a question, how can I postpone the start of the ESET service before the explorer.exe is ready to receive the notifications from that service? (probably start at the end of the list,when everything is loaded)

    Thanks

    Uhm... This is so weird...

    C++ installed, .NET installed, check disk that didn't report any errors as well as sfc/scannow...

    That's weird, really. I mean, if it works on our machines, then it's a system-related issue, but everything seems fine on your system... Besides, I have a localised version of XP and Java installed fine anyway, so it's not even that. I could edit the application's manifest, but I'm not actually sure whether it's the right thing to do. Maybe is something in the registry. I mean, maybe there's an entry created by a former version that hasn't been deleted when you tried to uninstall and install everything again and that is now in conflict with the installation, or maybe it's a previous installation which failed but still created some entries... Try to look for Java entries in the registry (use the search function) and see if there's something about the latest installation (I mean the version that fails to install). If you actually find something, write it down here in the forum and we'll tell you whether is safe to delete it/modify it or not.

    I already tried to remove all the crap from the registry with JavaRa.I checked the registy, but seems nothing suspicious apart,that there are keys from the last working version 1.8.0u51.Path to this version I have still in the enviroment variables.However I still find some keys,that I expect that should be removed.I have made an export with Nirsoft's regscanner,that you can take a look.

    Uhm... Which is very weird.

    According to your logs, everything starts with a call to the function GetProcAddress which fails to load SetProcessDPIAware in user32. In other words, Java checks your system before initialising the GUI and fails before actually being able to launch it. Since it's not necessary, you could try to edit the application's manifest to set DpiAware to false, but:

    1) I'm not sure whether it would actually make it run or it would end up with another error (probably the latter).

    2) This is not the right approach since it's a system-related issue; 100%.

    I'm not even actually sure about the requirements of Java, but I have .NET (1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0) and C++ (2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015) installed; do you have them installed too?

    C++ what I have installed is: 2005 ATL Update kb973923 v8.0.50727.4053, 2005 redist, 2008 v9.0.30411, v9.0.30729, v9.0.30729.4148, v9.0.30729.6161, 2010 v10.0.30319, 2013 v12.0.30501.0, 2015 Redist v14.0.23026.0.
    .NET (2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2, 3.5 SP1, 4 Client Profile, 4 Extended)


  14. Finally managed to get some time, to dig into this problem.The chksk /F /R took a while, but didn't show up any critical errors. After I run the sfc /scannow , which didn't reported any issues.However after the sfc, the installer ended shortly, stating that there is not Windows Installer used so I installed again the Windows Installer 4.5.After that it still reports the issue like before.Meanwhile I tried to reinstall (repair) the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable,but again without luck.

    The USER32.DLL version is 5.1.2600.5512 (xpsp.080413-2105)

    With all of the errors in the log you posted, it sounds like you have a Windows problem and not a Java problem.

    It might be a good time to save all your work and install a fresh copy of Windows!

    Yeah, and explain then why I can install update 51 without any problem.

    Which version of MSI (Microsoft / Windows Installer) do You have on Your system? If the answer is 3.x then try updating MSI to 4.5 and install all latest security updates for MSI 4.5

    The MSI version is 4.5.6001.22159 as I check.

    I went through the log files and find some intersting parts.Since my WinXP is in CZ language, I will have to translate some specific errors.

    I have attached the log file from the msi, if somebody want's to take a deeper look.

    Seems this problem is deeper than I expected.

    The problem you are having is error code 1722: https://www.java.com/en/download/help/error_1722.xml

    I would try the Java uninstaller to remove all traces of Java on your system, and then try installing it again: https://java.com/en/download/faq/uninstaller_toolinfo.xml

    Nope, if I'll try the Java Offline installer then I got 1603 error.If I try just the standalone msi file then it prompts that error with installer what I posted above.

    I already tried to uninstall, remove all crap by JavaRa, but all what I can install is the update 51 and not the latest, dunno why.


  18. SP3 I have on my system, so no problem with that. I never had a problem with Java 8 instalation up to update 51 like I mentioned. Offline instalations I used all the time. The issue is with the Java updates that come after update 51, example the update 77 like I posted on the screenshot.The installer normally starts but does not finish for an unknown reason and gives this error message.
