  1. Maybe DW Version 2.2.10011 built on 29 October 2015 is the latest and yes it requires KernelEx. So far I have only used the older version 2.2.6000. https://zzz.buzz/2017/05/18/download-dependency-walker/
  2. Am I correct the problem occurs with following conditions: Win ME DDR3 or 4 KernelEx25 (v2) latest? Kexbases: EnumerateLoadedModules64 (ITO Stub) StackWalk64 (ITO Stub) SymGetLineFromAddr (ITO Stub) SymGetSymFromAddr64 (ITO Stub) These API's are supported by Imagehlp of ME, but not of Imagehlp of 98SE. In the past I tested different versions of Imagehlp up to 6.1.7601.17514 (Win7SP1). Currently I use 5.1.2600.6198 (XP) on my main machine. But I also had used 5.0.2195.6613 (2K) and 4.0.1381.4 (98SE), but that doesn't matter here because I don't have a DDR3 or 4 machine.
  3. I would like to confirm this suspicion, but I have no DDR3 or DDR4 machine. The "Module Dependency Tree" looks good for user32 on my DDR2 machine.
  4. Firefox 54: I added [ntdll.dll] RtlDecodePointer= and RtlEncodePointer= to Kstub. Then no (error) message appears, but Firefox runs in the background only. Xul.dll is loaded. Currently version Central 54.0a1 (February 10, 2017) is still the newest I can start and run with UI.
  5. Have you tested which Firefox version is the last with support for vxd drivers?
  6. You can't run higher versions than Firefox 10 with KernelEX 4.5.2!
  7. I haven't specifically tested with vxd sound drivers yet. There is no help from my side for now. One small step - a tiny news concerning higher versions: I have Firefox 53.03 and IceWeasel 53.2 with Firefox en-US language pack running now. K-Meleon 76: I got with builds, around June and July, a considerable slowdown on some sites, almost a freeze, also msfn bord, after a short time. It seem to be fixed with KM76.4.6-Goanna-20220813.
  8. Downlod Windows 9x SSL Protocol WinSSLWrap 1.17 (Rev 08) http://www.htasoft.com/u98sesp/download98ssl.php The installer should work on 98SE. Install: You have to choose the instruction set of your CPU SSE or SSE2 (Pentium 4 or higher => SSE2). I think I installed it manually on ME: SSE2 CPU - extracted with 7Zip - SSL2.cab files into the program folder - name "SSL Protocol" - Sys2.cab files into System folder - created a shortcut to Wrap.exe on the Quick Launch / Taskbar ("C:\Program Files\SSL Protocol\WRAP.EXE") - no autostart - Configuration - see above SSLWrap must be running before you start the MailClient
  9. I usually had this due to wrong settings. Can you create another basic eMail account, not Gmail, as a kind of cross-check. Yes, I checked this. Firefox 27 renders the login page rather OK and it seems to be functional. It isn't functional on Firefox 9.0.1 (with RT's nss updates). There are only a few things be taken into account during installation. Paste the unicows.dll version 1.1.3790.0 (download dll-files.com) in your system folder. Don't install an older unicows.dll version! Then install KernelEX 4.5.2 - Reboot. http://kernelex.sourceforge.net/wiki/Help:Contents Win ME is my main OS. And I use eMail clients - usually Thunderbird 52 and OutlookExpress 6 - here, but of course nowadays with KernelEx. I don't have an GMail Account since many years. In my opinion it should be still possible to use an eMail client also without KernelEx today. What are your questions about 9x SSL Protocol WinSSLWrap? At which point you can't get any further?
  10. AFAIK RZ has no JS updates. You need at least Firefox 27 or 31 or corresponding forks, but that's not for sure (not testet). GMail POP SMTP IMAP: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7104828 https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7126229?hl=en
  11. Did you try latest Retrozilla version. I think thats it: http://o.rthost.win/gpc/files1.rt/rzbrowser-tls12-20200127.7z http://o.rthost.win/gpc/files1.rt/retrozilla-suite-tls12-20200131.7z I tested RZ and I was able to receive and send. I have set for smtp and pop TLS, TLS 1.2 is supported, too, POP > no secure authentication and smtp > use Name and Password. KernelEx: It doesn't mean that you can run every XP program on ME/98. I never had tested Pop Peeper. 9x SSL Protocol WinSSLWrap should work with old 9x compatible eMail programs. It supports the necessary protocols, but of course the eMail program and WinSSLWrap need the appropriate matching settings. Services Configuration: POP or IMAP and, SMTP. e.g.: POP3 {SSL} Protocol: Enabled, SSL Tunnel, localhost, Listen Port 110 (then also Port 110 in the eMail program), Remote Host (pop.gmail.com) and Port see Help of your provider, use SSL for remote checked SMTP {SSL} Protocol: Enabled, SSL Tunnel, localhost, Listen Port 25 (then also Port 25 in the eMail program), Remote Host (smtp.gmail.com) and Port see Help of your provider, use SSL for remote checked eMail prog setting: PegasusMail - Yes, I see they removed older versions. https://www.afterdawn.com/software/network/email/pegasus.cfm/v4_51 The old versions are available on archive.org. https://web.archive.org/web/20100404035641/http://www.pmail.com/downloads_s3_t.htm no files on communityPM: https://web.archive.org/web/20150428030235/http://community.pmail.com/files/5/default.aspx
  12. Without KernelEx: Outlook Express (6sp1 here) still works with Windows 9x SSL Protocol WinSSLWrap! https://msfn.org/board/topic/174247-windows-9x-ssl-protocol-winsslwrap-117-rev-08/ It should also work with other eMail programs. Thunderbird (Seamonkey 1.1.19) ? - currently no longer used DreamMail ? - no longer in use With KernelEx: Thunderbird 3.1.20 ? / 9.0.1 ? / 10.0.12 ? - currently not testet - RT's "Network Security Services" updates should work for TB 9.0.1 (Seamonkey 2.6.1) and 10.0.12, too. http://o.rthost.win/gpc/files1.rt/Firefox10-new-nss.7z Pegasus Mail ? - currently not tested http://kernelex.sourceforge.net/wiki/Pegasus_Mail + core updates Thunderbird 52.9.1 https://msfn.org/board/topic/181424-firefox-24-52-for-me-and-98/ note the intructions - the account wizard doesn't work yet
  13. I wonder. if the M option or SPLIT8MB of RLoew's RAM Patch make a difference on your system.
  14. I never had problems to play from NTFS partitions up to VLC 0.8.6i (usually KernelEx disabled) with Paragon PNTFS installed. But, I can not say anything to Win95 and vlc from my side.
  15. Lua was introduced with version 0.9.2 first. See changelog (News.txt) https://retrocomputing.stackexchange.com/questions/13032/what-is-the-last-vlc-media-player-version-for-windows-98-98se-me https://msfn.org/board/topic/175610-vlc-on-ancient-hardware/ https://wiki.videolan.org/VSG:Usage:Version https://wiki.videolan.org/WindowsFAQ-2.1.x assertion - Contents 7.8 "With Windows Me/98/98se/95/NT you can use VLC 0.8.6i out of box."
  16. https://msfn.org/board/topic/181637-vlc-player-illegal-operation-on-windows-95/ DosFreak tested 0.8.4b on 95.

The server crash was about more than two years ago. There are more packs out there.
  18. Hallo, there is a MS update for Win ME Features Ctrl N, O ,S , P, Z, X, C, V, A. Search for unofficial ME ServicePacks. And I've one Pack, that includes Metapad 3.6 to replace MS Notepad. Website Metapad: https://liquidninja.com/metapad/ I can start version 5.1.2600.5512 on my ME KernelEX system, but it is not usable yet here. "Where is notepad.exe version from?" Probably unofficial https://msfn.org/board/topic/61749-98-se-sp-332/?do=findComment&comment=686701 see "key bindings patch" (15 years old)

  20. Bookmarks and history -library. Question: What works so far? It seems fully functional to me for Firefox 3.6.28 or RoyTam's Firefox 3.6. Firefox 45, 52 and forks: I imported my extensive Favorites to Firefox portable and some forks on XP to have all these bookmarks available on ME. In my case all bookmarks are present twice with them of PlainOldFavorites. The file places.sqlite with imported Favorites can be copied to replace one of another version or fork. - Accesses from existing bookmarks are written into the history. This means history works, if the webpage is already bookmarked. - Bookmarks can be moved between folders.
  21. Yes, Javascript usually works on my systems. I have apparent problems with older versions like 31 or 35. Of course, that's no surprise, due to the further development of JS. I ask, because there are some reports that it doesn't work at all and I'm not able to reproduce this. My lowest and oldest machines are Asus P4V800D-X , VIA PT880Ultra, Pentium 4 Northwood - SSE2, NV5900XT AGP8x + driver NV82.16, 2GB and MSI7104 Via P4M800, P4 Northwood SSE2, GF6600GT AGP / driver 82.69, 1GB.
  22. Do the Javascript problems arise on your system?
  23. i do still have search symbols in my mypal when using 0kb search.json as read only Maybe I hadn't investigated this thoroughly. No, the library window is empty. Portable version: History and the Bookmarks created on OS XP will be saved and remain usable on ME/98 - apart from that use extension PlainOldFavorites.
  24. OK, thanks for your specs. Firefox 52 also works with a "ati radeon 9250 pci". Which graphics driver do you use? 98SE on a SSD - Real Machine!? No not canvas - correct is gfx.content.azure.backends: skia,cairo The first one - here skia - is being used. The second or others are fallback backends, if the first fails. Of course only skia is needed and the others can be omitted. Firefox 52 is set to skia by default. gfx.canvas.azure.backends: Here it doesn't matter if it is set to cairo or skia. Backend Direct2D isn't supported and requires Direct3D 11 compositing. There is no workaround. Yes, you can do this. Probably you will not have the symbols of the search engines in the search field. If search.json is set to read only, Mypal / Firefox (28 - 44) create a second file "search.json.tmp" with every start.
