  1. InitializeCriticalSectionAndSpinCount requires Windows XP SP2 or Windows Server 2003 SP1 or later. WinRAR 3.80 is also the last version to work on Windows NT 4.0, Windows 98, Windows Millennium, Windows 2000, Windows XP RTM/SP1 and Windows Server 2003 RTM. So, I'm gonna lower the version number from 3.92 to 3.80.
  2. Thank you for the heads up. I'll update one of my comments and change it to version 1.82.4. Here is a good screenshot running XnView 1.8.2 on Win95B:
  3. Thank you for the information. When Windows 95 came out, there was no support for wheel functionality on mice. Speaking of XnView, I'm guessing that I'm gonna have to try to find a version of the software that works with Windows 95. I'm on version 1.66 right now.
  4. Here are some more software that I found that works with Windows 95, but is most likely no longer updated: LAST - FREE - AOL Instant Messenger 4.8 ---- (no longer functional) LAST - FREE - Microsoft IntelliMouse (2003-11-11) --- http://priede.bf.lu.lv/ftp/pub/OS/peles/Microsoft/IntelliMouse/IP4_0EngALLMsi.exe ONGD - FREE - InfraView 4.4.4 (2016-12-20) --- http://www.irfanview.com/ LAST - FREE - mIRC 4.1 (1996-04-27) --- http://www.oldversion.com/windows/mirc-4-1 LAST - SHAR - mIRC 6.35 (2008-10-17) --- http://www.oldversion.com/windows/mirc-6-35 LAST - FREE - Netscape 6.23 (2002-03-15) --- http://www.oldversion.com/windows/netscape-6-23 ONGD - SHAR - Total Commander 9.0a (2016-12-14) --- http://totalcommander.ch/win/tcmd900ax32.exe LAST - SHAR - WinRAR 3.80 (2008-05-30) --- http://www.oldversion.com/windows/winrar-3-80 LAST - FREE - Yahoo! Messenger 5.6 --- (no longer functional) I tried to load XnView 2.13 on Windows 95 guest and it's missing a entry point located in KERNEL32.DLL. Does anyone have any idea which version of XnView earlier than 2.13 is the last to work under Windows 95? Also, I can't confirm this, but trying to view the About Box in the latest release of InfraView causes an Illegal Operation and crashes! Lastly, I can't confirm if Total Commander 9.0a works on Windows 95 or now, but can try installing and running it to see if it works or not. If it doesn't, let me know and I'll fix it.
  5. It is the latest Visual C++ redistributable available for Windows 95. It installs the MSVCR70.DLL and MSVCR71.DLL binaries in the \WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory to load software complied with Visual C++ 7.0 and Visual C++ 7.1. With the software operating using the working entry points under Windows 95, the application will run.
  6. Thank you for the link. I'll try to look for more software that is the last to support Windows 95 later on.
  7. 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.

  8. This is the update that you need to install first: KB4015195 After you installed KB4015195 and reboot, you will need to apply these updates: KB890830 (Malicious Software Removal Tool) KB915597 (Windows Defender) KB4014661 (Cumulative Security Update) KB4014652 (Security Update) KB4014793 (Security Update) KB4014794 (Security Update) KB4014984 (.NET Framework Security and Quality Rollup) KB4015067 (Security Update) KB4015380 (Security Update) KB4015383 (Security Update) KB4017018 (Update) KB4017094 (Security Update for Microsoft Silverlight) As far as I know, there are actually 12 updates including the final Windows Defender update. All updates beyond KB4017094 will only be made available for Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Thank you for the correction. I honestly can't believe that the demo version of Diskepper Defragmenter would corrupt a partition this large!
  16. 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 - FREE - Aladdin StuffIt Expander 5.1 --- http://www.ozgundll.org/alex51.exe/m-download-49935.html LAST - $$$$ - Diskeeper 9² LAST - $$$$ - PartitionMagic 8.0.4 (discontinued) LAST - $$$$ - Visual Basic 6
  17. Thank you for the heads up. For some reason, attempting to download ac530.exe leads to a 404 error. I'll find a way how to make ac530.exe available. Anyways, I found more familiar versions of software that is the last to support Windows 95: LAST - $$$$ - Adobe Illustrator 8 (1998-09) LAST - $$$$ - Adobe Photoshop 5.5 (1999-02) LAST - $$$$ - Corel Draw 9 (1999-08-31) LAST - $$$$ - Curious Labs Poser 4.0.3 (1999-09) LAST - SHAR - JASC Paint Shop Pro 7.04 LAST - FREE - Macromedia Flash Player 7.0.73 --- http://sdfox7.com/win95/flashplayer7r73_win.exe LAST - $$$$ - Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000 (late 1999) LAST - $$$$ - 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.

  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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?
  23. 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.
  24. Thank you for pointing that out. I'll take a look at these articles.
