    On other (old) news, when they released XP the demented MS guys did remove something useful (the Wang/Kodak Imaging tool) that was a nice (very popular) tool on 9x and NT/2K, and, in no time, each and every "geeky peep" on the internet managed to port the 2K version to XP (and a subset of the "geeky peeps" also use it on Vista and 7 ;)):

    that was a problem, and it has been solved just fine, when/if making a REFS will become a problem, surely a workaround will be found. :)

    Sorry for bumping this thread, but the linked homepage is gone.

    archive.org has captured the site, but not the files

    scanner-win7.z and scanner.zip are very generic names :(

    This is very interesting.. why would they block windows 7 and keep 8.1? I don't think that 8.1 has anything (except dx 11.2) over windows 7 that would stop the game from running. I hate when companies do this :realmad:

    The Graphics of Star Trek Online (STO) were outdated in 2010, when STO was released...

    Otherwise your guess is as good as mine.

  5. STO dropping support for Windows 7 and older GPUs after Feb 2022

    What happens if I don’t upgrade by February 15?

    Starting in November 2021, if you are running on Windows 7 or using a Video Card with a Direct3D Feature Level 10, you will be informed of the upcoming incompatibility via the launcher.

    As of February 15, 2022, STO and NW will no longer be supporting Windows 7 or a Video Card with a Direct3D Feature Level less than 11. Players who do not meet the updated requirements will get a pop-up over the launcher indicating this and the launcher will close automatically when clicking OK. It will not be possible to log in or patch without upgrading.

  6. I finally updated my 2003 Server hotfix list, if anyone needs / cares.

    The nice thing is that I go back and remove hotfixes that the newer ones make obsolete.

    The bummer is that I believe I am the last guy on Earth using Server 2003 and needing hotfixes for it.

    Thanks for the good work.  I am still using that list to slipstream updates, when I restall Windows.   Using Windows 7 on my trusted IBM Thinkpad Armada would be like torturing them. Thank the Gods, I've so many Windows 2003 licenses.   

    Started using Win 7 in April IIRC
      Do you plan on updating that list in the future ?           As this forum does not work with Opera 12, especially for posting, I'm only lurker.
  7. On my Computer (Thinkpad X31) Win98se Sp3 beta +KernelEx +RP9 I also have frequent freezes using Opera 10.10.

    But it is not caused by CPU Usage, but by eating up User & GDI Resources.

    Opera freezes, while according to RP9 User Resources are at 1% or dropping rapidly.

    GDI Resources seem to be fine.

    Installing GDI Extender beta1 and setting GDIMaxHeapSize=32000 win.ini section [windows]

    seems to make the freezes less frequently.

    So GDI Resources are somehow involved.

    As I disabled JavaScript and Plugins, either Opera is ignoring these settings or

    they are not responsible for these freezes.
