  1. No regression so far, thanks !! Higher versions than 2.2.8 of VLC player do not work on a 98SE-Kex-system ??
  2. Hi Jumper, I am not sure if you meant me or GoodM but: - KEX disabled on unicows.dll both '\\system wide' with a setting in flags and also directly in the dll's kex-tab. - KEX all the latest builds. - Kext not in use right now. - After removing ReactOS I am now using a few MS files in known dll's.
  3. Hi Jumper, I can now print with SumatraPDF 3.1.2. using the 'Win2k_PD4: PrintDlgW_fwd' comp-mode !! The other three did not work. Haven't checked the ME modes. Will test other apps during the weekend. Thank you very much !!!! @Goodmaneuver. Thanks for looking into my SeaMonkey issue but I have to admit that I did not understood what you suggested to do. But no problem !!
  4. @ Goodmaneuver. You seem to be quite good in getting apps to run !! Much better than me. Can you maybe look into SeaMonkey 2.9. or 2.9.1 ?? Both are available as zip-files on Seamonkey's ftp. Higher versions won't run at all I think.
  5. @ Jumper. While 'cleaning' my system I noticed that I do not even need kstub any longer !! At least for the kernelex-depending apps that I use now. Awesome !!!! Everything works great with core.ini up to 18. incl. notepad++ 7.6.6 ! But when using a newer version of core.ini notepad 7.6.6 does not work. Depending on the comp-setting it either complains about 'IsProcessorFeaturePresent' or crashes right away. Please let me know if you want/need any error reports. Update: In the current setup Irfanview 4.5.2 now works !! Unfortunately settings don't stick so it does not remember to (re-)open in fullscreen, etc. Follow up: As a workaround you can activate write-protection on irfanview's ini-file. It then uses a temp-ini which keeps some but not all settings.
  6. Hi Jumper, still in the process of limiting/removing ReactOS on my system but I tested the new kexbases.22 and I receive error messages regarding: ntdll.vDbgPrintExWithPrefix - ComponentID: 4294967295 I think this is caused by mpr.dll from ReactOS - hope I can get rid of it soon but I thought I'll let you know just in case it might hint at something. Thank you for all your hard work !! Update: O.K., I am through now and kexbases.22 seem to be fine now. Will check the new core.ini again soon. Quick question. Now that I do not have msvcrt.dll as an auxilliary anylonger the VLC player won't start. Was there another solution for that ? I seem to remember that it was recommended to deactivate KernelEx in system's msvcrt.dll ??
  7. I tried all that of course, but only notepad++ did run with "legacy base enhancements" !!
  8. Hi Jumper, I am not sure if my problem is caused by all these ReactOs files on my system but when using the new core.ini none of my KernelEx depending apps are working !! The error message that comes up most of the time is related to: Missing export [kernel32.dll] IsProcessorFeaturePresent I am already in the process of removing ReactOS from my system.
  9. I also upgraded kexbases.map from .20 !! Maybe that does the trick because it works much better with all these ReactOS files that SeaMonkey loads in my setup like msvcrt.dll ??
  10. With this new kexbases my good-old Seamonkey 2.6.1. seem to run much faster !! Nice. Thx, Mikl
  11. With this new kexbases my 'old' Seamonkey 2.6.1 seem to run much faster !! Thx, Mikl
  12. @ Deomsh. Can you actually play all formats ?? On my machine only mp3 works - everything else crashes the player. Trying to open the settings of mpc-hc crashes the player too.
  13. Hi Jumper, just a quick note to let you know that one of the problems that I reported is fixed in v18 !! The email-client of SeaMonkey now creates correct msf-index-files. At first I was a little bit confused because the size stayed at 0kB when checking with the Explorer but was then updated when SeaMonkey was closed for the 'first time' after running under the v18-update. Thx !! Unfortunately still no progress with printing using SumatraPdf, etc. best wishes
  14. Hi Jumper, regarding some APIs - I don't how important they really are but they sound important kernel32.dll: createvirtualbuffer freevirtualbuffer ntdll.dll: RtlSecondsSince1970ToTime RtlSecondsSince1980ToTime RtlTimeToSecondsSince1970 RtlTimeToSecondsSince1980
  15. Yes, v17 make it work. Thank you !! Is there anything we should especially look at - maybe testing newer browsers, etc ?
  16. Hi Jumper, thank you very much for the new version but unfortunately I can't get it to run !! Windows reaches desktop but then a error message pops up saying something like 'KernelEx couldn't find it's driver counterpart'. Sorry I did not wrote down the exact text. Also it might be good to add a new point 3 (or maybe 2b) that people using kstub should add this to core.ini Best wishes, MiKl
  17. Hi Roytam, I think I asked this before but could you also look into backporting SeaMonkey ?? Thx
  18. Hi Jumper, it looks like as if I was quite lucky the last few years because most of the websites that I visit reguarly worked fine with my SeaMonkey 2.6.1 !! But now some have been been upgraded So I would like to ask if there are any chances for a new version soon ?? And if not, would it maybe be an idea that you maybe join forces with current browser projects ? (If I remenber correctly you once mentioned that SeaMonkey 2.3x 'worked' in one of your setups). Thanks for all your hard work !!!!
  19. Even with this filter in place debugwindow.exe lists hundreds if not thousands results. Do you have maybe an idea what I could specifically look for - maybe 'createfile' or 'writefile' ??
  20. Hi Jumper, the email-problem seem to be caused in Kexbases.17 ! When using v16 it works again. I will look into the printing issue but unfortunately I believe I do not understand excatly what you mean.
  21. Hi Jumper, a few posts up I reported issues on my system with v17. Have you been able to reproduce these or is is just my setup (again) ??
  22. Hi Jumper, any chances for a new version soon ? Thanks and all the best for 2018 everybody !!!!
  23. Hi guys, sorry, didn't wanted to start a new thread for a question that may have come up a thousand times already. The need arised that the 'run' window is wider and after activating 'thick frame' through a resourcehacker the window is resizable but the content, especially the 'open'-combobox does not increase in size (horizontally) along with it. Is this not possible or am I just blind ??
  24. Is there maybe a new version soon ?? Thx and best wishes, MiKl
  25. Hi Jumper, I have noticed a strange behaviour of SeaMonkey 2.6.1 that started with v17. I use also SM's email client and (I am sure you know that) it works in a way that the actual contents of a mail are stored in one file and an index file is created automatically. Usually inbox.msf, sent.msf, etc. So after deleting some emails one can use compress/compact-function to keep the files as small as possible. However, now the index files are getting somehow corrupted because SeaMonkey creates msf-files of 0 KB size !! Nothing that I tried within 98SE fixed this and it happens on all machines. The only way that I found was to boot, in my case, onto XP install SeaMonkey 2.6.1 and fix the msf-files there !! Of course, after that I tested it again just in case it was some weird glitch but the 'corruptions' still occur. Thanks, MiKl Update I just booted an old installation running only KernelEx without ReactOS enhancements !! SeaMonkey 2.0.14 is installed and everything works. But after upgrading to Kex-v17 the msf-problem occur there as well. Hope this helps.
