    Thank you for the link. I'll try to look for more software that is the last to support Windows 95 later on.

    Last Versions of Software for Windows 95

    I just loaded Adobe Reader 5.1 (2002-09-17) on Windows 95 and it still works. While it is not officially supported by Adobe, it is the last version shown to work on Windows 95. Also MSN Messenger no longer works, because Microsoft shut the service down. LAST - FREE - AlfaMini 1.8.0 --- http://web.archive.org/web/20111220120548/http://www.alfasoftweb.com/download/alfamini_v1.80.exe AlfaMini 2.0.0 doesn't seem to work on Windows 95. LAST - FREE - DirectX 8.0 (2000-11-04) --- http://www.oldversion.com/windows/directx-8-0 LAST - FREE - Visual C++ .NET 2003 Redistributables --- http://www.mdgx.com/files/VC_R_71.EXE I'm gonna test out IMGBurn 2.4.4 and CPU-Z 1.32.1 on Windows 95 later on!

    Windows Update taking forever?

    The KB3165965 update that I linked in older updates is correct. If you're using a very old version of SeaMonkey, you will need to update to SM 2.46 stable. SeaMonkey 2.49, based on Firefox 52, will be the last to support Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 without R2.

    Windows Vista Updates

    Yep. I'm currently waiting on the security updates for April 2017 to be archived. If I'm not lazy, I can check the update history on which security updates were made available for Windows Vista yesterday.

    Last Versions of Software for Windows 95

    I'm gonna be thinking about getting a 64 GB or a 128 GB CF drive and put Windows 95 on the CF drive as it's using about 9.5% of the 29.7 GB of disk space right now.

    Windows Update taking forever?

    Sorry to revive this thread one last time, but this is the going to be the last Patch Tuesday for Windows Vista! After today, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates or provide any technical support for Windows Vista. This is the final patch that you need to install before getting any updates on Windows Vista: http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4015195 Vista If you need to reinstall Windows Vista, you will need to apply these updates by order of month starting with the older versions.

    Windows Vista Updates

    Sadly, Microsoft is dropping Windows Vista support after today. We don't know right now if there are any final updates or that Windows Vista is missing out on its last chance for a update until we check. Update: There were 11 updates available on the Windows Vista platform today. However this is going to be the last time updates will be able on the OS.

    Thank you for the correction. I honestly can't believe that the demo version of Diskepper Defragmenter would corrupt a partition this large!

    Last Versions of Software for Windows 95

    That doesn't sound too great to see that large FAT32 partitions are at risk of data corruption. Microsoft believes that the changes that are required to support hard disks and other media bigger than 32 GB would require architectural changes that will never be supported on Windows 95. Makes me want to think about purchasing a 64 GB CompactFlash drive and then running a test under ScanDisk to see if any data corruption persists. Speaking of hard disk partitioning software, here are some more versions of software that supported Windows 95.

    Last Versions of Software for Windows 95

    Thank you for the heads up. For some reason, attempting to download ac530.exe leads to a 404 error. I'll find a way how to make ac530.exe available. Anyways, I found more familiar versions of software that is the last to support Windows 95: LAST - $$$$ - Adobe Illustrator 8 (1998-09) LAST - $$$$ - Adobe Photoshop 5.5 (1999-02) LAST - $$$$ - Corel Draw 9 (1999-08-31) LAST - $$$$ - Curious Labs Poser 4.0.3 (1999-09) LAST - SHAR - JASC Paint Shop Pro 7.04 LAST - FREE - Macromedia Flash Player 7.0.73 --- http://sdfox7.com/win95/flashplayer7r73_win.exe LAST - $$$$ - Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000 (late 1999) LAST - $$$$ - Microsoft Office 2000 (1999-06-07) LAST - FREE - Opera 10.10 (2009-11-23) --- http://www.oldapps.com/opera.php?old_opera=74 LAST - FREE - RealPlayer 8 Basic --- http://www.oldapps.com/real.php?old_real_player=15 LAST - FREE - VLC Media Player 0.8.6d (2007-11-30) --- http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/vlc/0.8.6d/win32/ LAST - FREE - Windows Media Player 6.4 (1999-04-29) --- http://www.oldapps.com/windows_media_player.php?old_windows_media_player=3 LAST - FREE - XnView 1.82.4 --- http://download.xnview.com/old_versions/ If you're using VMware and if you want to get Sound Blaster PCI 128 support, you need to use version 5 hardware (virtualHW.version = "5") Installing this driver under VMware Workstation 6.0 will cause the Windows 95 VM to crash and become unbootable! You also need to disable the PCI bridge too. Also, Windows 95 does not properly support hard disks and other media larger than 32 GB without risking possible data corruption. The largest hard drive that will handle Windows 95 would be a IBM Deskstar 34GXP: http://www.pcguide.com/ref/hdd/bios/sizeGB30-c.html If you have found anymore software that is the last to support Windows 95 or if it's ongoing, please post them here.
  13. Okay, I recently installed Skype 6.1 on this Windows 2000 machine and it turned out that the installation quit unexpectedly. When I attempted to execute Skype 6.1, I get this error message: The last time that I updated UURollup v11 was on 19 November 2012. Is there a way to update UURollup in order to fix this?

    KB3217877 update: reboot loop

    I think that I solved my problem here. I had to reinstall Windows Vista Ultimate x64 late last night, re-apply SP1, SP2, IE9 and re-install all of the updates. I had to install KB3217877 first before installing all of the remaining 214 updates. I can't confirm if the problem has been solved until after the updates have been installed and the virtual machine reboots successfully. Once it does, I will update my comment. Update: Problem is solved now! All updates have been installed successfully! I can only hope that due to uncorrectable problems with Windows Update under Windows Vista is that customers miss out on their last chance for a update in a event if Microsoft doesn't issue any security updates next month.

    KB3217877 update: reboot loop

    Is anyone able to confirm this? I'm currently running Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 x86 inside VMware Workstation Player 12 and when after I install the KB3217877 update and reboot, it results in a STOP error that can only be viewed for a fraction of a second and the Windows Vista guest OS reboots over and over. Would it be possible to resolve this issue by fixing the security permission that caused Windows to fail to start or is it just another botched update that Microsoft needs to pull?
  17. ppgrainbow

    KB3217877 update: reboot loop

    I reinstalled update KB3217877 and the error still persists. I had to go to Advanced Boot Options select Disable Automatic Restart on System Failure and when Windows Vista attempted to start up, this is the BSOD error that I got: I suspect that this issue is caused after installing the KB3217877 optional update.

    2 TiB limit size in MBR hard drives

    Good job getting your 4 TB hard hard drive to work under Windows XP! Hard drives can be formatted with the exFAT file system of up to 32 MB clusters at 2 ^ 32 sectors for a maximum total of 128 PB (144,115,188,075,855,872 bytes) which is also the maximum for the LBA-48 specification. Currently, there are no software tools or hard drives to overcome the 128 PB barrier at this time.
  19. Thank you for pointing that out. I'll take a look at these articles.
  20. Does anyone have any idea on how to stop File Explorer from automatically creating the "\System Volume Information" on VHD hard disk images that are mounted as a drive? I have a MS-DOS FAT formatted VHD that were created in Virtual PC 2007 when I was on Windows Vista for nearly three years. MS-DOS 6.22 and below only supports the FAT partition and has no support for long file names at all. If I try to attach the VHDs with one click using File Explorer, the "\System Volume Information" gets automatically written to the attached VHD and it ends up corrupting the volume label when running MS-DOS on VPC 2007 or Hyper-V! Here's an example screenshot of what it looks like: The "\System Volume Information" is only used for System Restore points and in my opinion, it shouldn't be created when another internal hard drive doesn't have a System Restore point enabled. Is there a way to stop File Explorer from automatically creating the "System Volume Information" folder to the attached VHD?
  21. That sounds like a giid idea. Any idea how can a sparse file on a NTFS volume can be created?
  22. The VHD are actually dynamic to conserve disk space. Speaking of WinImage, why does the software have some hiccups when it comes to read/write operations? It hasn't been updated since April 2013.
  23. ^_^ By the way, if I want to open individual participants rather than mounting the whole virtual hard disk image (VHD), I can always use ImDisk. I got Windows Search disabled before on Vista and I did it again on Windows 8.1.
  24. I already prevented the System Volume Information folder from being written to a USB drive. It had nothing to do with preventing the System Volume Information folder to being automatically written to an attached VHD. What I did was to disable Windows Search in Administrative Tools under Services. That way whenever I attach a VHD, the "\System Volume Information" folder won't be written anymore.
