  1. Well then try looking for other files. There are possibly a zillion versions of these. no idea which license key is compatible with which. But it seems that no .msi ever existed for Office 2013 Professional, only for Professional Plus: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/office-2013-msi-version/7abddc2e-f088-4d55-95b2-be3fb76575f1?page=1 jaclaz
  2. I know , Basically because it is written in clear letters on the given site : Life is tough. Anyway, if you read between (or beyond) the lines you could try searching around for X18-65189.iso. Maybe you could land here : https://web.archive.org/web/20150331001338/https://drcdn.blob.core.windows.net/office2013/X18-65189.iso or maybe here: https://archive.org/details/en_office_professional_plus_2013_x86_x64_dvd_1135709 And again that (or that other one) may (or may not) be what you are after. jaclaz
  3. Try here (AGAIN - maybe - they will do): https://www.heidoc.net/joomla/technology-science/microsoft/73-office-2013-direct-download-links jaclaz
  4. Check here, it seems that the good MS guys have removed links from where they were (and should have been), of course - in order to simplify things for the user - making them not findable, though seemingly they are still available (maybe): https://www.slipstick.com/outlook/2013/office-2013-removed-office-portal/ jaclaz
  5. Which is good, but only (possibly) part of the problem: If you check that thread, it is about verifying that the VM machine settings are adequate, seemingly the "key" is: jaclaz
  6. If "no luck" is the complete, detailed, exhaustive description of what happens on your machine, I guess that we can end here our conversation, as it is pretty much pointless. Go trying helping people ... But if you have a friend that writes .bat files for you, and they "work great", ask him/her to write a new batch capable of starting IE the way you want, you may have better luck . Have fun . jaclaz
  7. You open notepad. Then copy the posted text to the notepad window. Save the file as tryme.vbs in the same directory where the default.html file is. Then you try running it by double clicking on tryme.vbs or type tryme.vbs on the command line and press [ENTER] or "cscript tryme.vbs" [ENTER]. If you have .vbs associated to executable it should work, otherwise you ned to set the association, set permissions, etc. Once by running it you get an Internet Explorer Window opened (whether it actually reaches google or it throws a no connection error is the same) you open the file in Notepad and change the address, "http://www.google.com" in the example, with the path to your "default.html" file (that would probably be simply "default.html" or possibly ".\default.html"). Save the file and run it. What happens? jaclaz
  8. On the given link there are reports of success with Windows 10, but I cannot see a reason why Windows 7 wouldn't work unless *somehow* the Windows 7 install has not suitable drivers for the (virtualized) graphic card or these drivers are *somehow* missing a specific functionality. Do double check the actual VMware settings and drivers *like*: https://communities.vmware.com/thread/579259 jaclaz
  9. First thing you shouldn't use a .bat but rather a .cmd. Second - even if it might work - you have the double quotes in your example all wrong. Third - this is only a side note - the start command traditionally has some quirks and it should always be used with the "title" parameter, see: https://ss64.com/nt/start.html Fourth you are not launching any "app" in chrome, you are laubching a "normal" .html page in "app mode" (i.e. without the address bar). I don't think there is an "easy" way to do so from command line (i.e. there isn't AFAIK a correspondent command line parameter to the chrome "--app" one, ther is the "-k" one, but that is "kiosk mode" so it will have no address bar but it will be full screen), you will probably need to use vbs, something *like*: Set objIE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application") With objIE .visible=1 .left=200 .top=200 .height=800 .width=600 .menubar=0 .toolbar=0 .statusBar=0 .FullScreen=0 .navigate "http://www.google.com" End With 'Wait until IE has finished loading Do While objIE.ReadyState <> 4 WScript.Sleep 100 Loop Set objIE = Nothing should do. jaclaz
  10. No. But you can use some other field. Like - say - the OEM fields: https://www.askvg.com/add-customized-strings-oem-information-and-logo-in-system-properties-dialog-box-of-windows-xp/ jaclaz
  11. Or maybe, since certificates are "secure" (please take notice of the double quotes) the compression algorithm/procedure (or the way they are stored inside the .wim) *somehow* makes some internal hash/check/whatever invalid, so - for your own good - the MS tool prevents them from properly installing. jaclaz
  12. If I may, besides the actual value of the patches/programs he made (some or which are simply invaluable) , it was the value of what he taught us (directly or indirectly) that made him a reference point. Personally - besides and beyond his work - I always admired his rigour and staightforwardness, qualities that while they should be "default" for engineers, are not at all common. We will miss him. jaclaz
  13. The server/connection seems somehow flaky, I had the same issue (directory listing not showing correctly and needing a refresh), if you got the file, good, otherwuise you may want to try a ftp client (as opposed to a browser). jaclaz
  14. dsfo (part of the dsfok toolkit) should be working just fine on NT: http://members.ozemail.com.au/~nulifetv/freezip/freeware/index.html http://members.ozemail.com.au/~nulifetv/freezip/freeware/dsfok.zip The point might be more about which disk you have available (and accessible from NT) to store the image, you need a disk drive bigger than the one you want to image and (of course it depends on the specific setup) NT might have issues in accessing this larger disk (and again this might depend on SP level, actual hardware and what not). jaclaz
  15. Seemingly those with 2 Mbit chips do have a bootblock (unless you accidentally overwrote it) and they can be used also as "programmers" using hot-swap (but you need another similar one). You will need a working floppy. https://web.archive.org/web/20050409123244/http://www.bev.me.uk/ruslan/Updated_BIOS_recovery_tips.htm Is it an AWARD or a AMI BIOS? https://www.overclockers.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-315360.html https://web.archive.org/web/20041207133136/http://www.amptron.com/documents/Recover.pdf jaclaz
  16. Yep, but now you really cannot boot (to BIOS) anymore? Also some motherbaords/BIOSes have the one (or the other) BIOS recovery modes (it depends, but before actually going to the chip programmer, simpler paths should be preferred), if you detail EXACT motherboard/BIOS we can check if yours has one of such provisions/procedures. jaclaz
  17. Sure but de-soldering (and re-soldering, or better resoldering adequately) a BIOS chip is not something that should be advised, it is of course doable but not exactly easy-peasy. Here is a video using a "test clip" (no need to solder/desolder): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Y06x1f22B0 jaclaz
  18. You may want to get GL viewer: https://www.softpedia.com/get/Programming/Other-Programming-Files/OpenGL-Extension-Viewer.shtml http://realtech-vr.com/admin/glview but most likely you will get 1.1 or maybe 2.1 (provided you have guest additions properly set and installed). It is a known issue in Virtualbox, see: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/27566569/is-there-a-vm-that-i-can-do-opengl-3-with-virtualbox-and-vmware-dont https://community.khronos.org/t/sketchup-needs-opengl/72978 It is not clear (to me at least) if something changed in very recent Virtualbox releases, but - besides the support to version 3.0 which might be still missing, I have seen here and there lots of related issues conneted to the actual Linux (and the hardware drivers used in it), user running the Virtualbox and what not. You may want to try in your OS/hardware a VmWare VM, that should be able to run Sketchup (or more generally provide openGL 3.0): https://forums.sketchup.com/t/sketchup-in-virtual-box-windows-10-guest/33500 jaclaz
  19. Be aware of the risk of confusing evolution in actual hardware with that a the OS. On a SAME machine where 2000 runs with "good" drivers and without the need of post-end-of-life third party patches, it usually runs circles around XP (and is as stable if not more stable). I got a the time a HP Vectra who had BOTH NT 4.00 and Windows 2000, and it took me far more than one week (a few moths) to definitely switch to 2000. jaclaz
  20. A LCD monitor has a "native" resolution (number of pixels horizontal x number of pixels vertical). Any resolution set in the video card different from the native LCD resolution either won't work or will be an interpolated resolution (fuzzy/blurred and usually also slower) or won't show the whole desktop area (as jumper hinted it would behave like a "virtual desktop"). @TrevMUN That could be a very good idea to evaluate if the display has issues and needs to be replaced anyway, otherwise it seems like a very creative way to waste 120 £ + the time and there are some risks when changing a laptop screen (clearly doable as a DIY but not exactly "easy-peasy" if you are not familiar with the procedure). jaclaz
  21. If you have certain, specific NEC device(s) with Intel Centrino 6205/6235 and Broadcom 802.11ac Wi-Fi cards ... ... you probably won't read this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-information/status-windows-10-1903#706msgdesc I have no better words than "total madness" to describe the above. jaclaz
