  1. KernelEx for Win2000

    Pale Moon for xp opens up nicely in w2k but unfortunately several important addons don't work. With Basilisk everything is good so for me it's a better fit. Roy Tam managed to get around some of the call function issues that w2k had in version 53+, unless it's based on UXP and 52, which probably explains it.
  2. KernelEx for Win2000

    This thread appears to have died. Not much happening in the world of w2k? Still a great operating system. For anyone interested, when 52esr loses support in a few months Roy Tam has made basilisk compatible with XP\2000: https://msfn.org/board/topic/177125-my-build-of-new-moon-temp-name-aka-pale-moon-for-xp/?page=55 It runs good except for some reason permissions.sqlite isn't stored. Don't know if that's intentional or a bug. Basilisk is based on either Firefox 55 or 56, not sure which. He's also got Pale Moon for XP but I haven't tried that one.
  3. Does the basilisk/serpent version for XP store a permissions.sqlite file? I'm hoping there's a preference setting for this since rebooting serpent causes me to have to reset everything for each site. What's annoying are the notification popups that sites like this one bug you for.

    Dibya, any luck on getting the nightlies to work in w2k without crashing? I see a problem with some of the newer webextensions not being compatible since they require a host node.exe that will not install on w2k. So even if it is possible to make the nightly work properly there will still be some limitations. Sandboxing is another one.

    Hi blackwingcat, glad to see this project is still alive with the release of v2.9bG. It's not that important since Firefox 57 is a pos that I probably won't be using if the latest nightly ends up as release (I'll be sticking with 52esr) but I'm getting this error now with the 2.9bG: "The procedure entry point SleepConditionVariableCS could not be located in the dynamic link library Kernel32dll." Another call function in Vista or higher. Is it already supported or something else that would need to be added?

    BWC, thanks for the new direct link on your blog to Windows Update. I could not find anything on Google about the change in the URL and for posready 2009 I was getting a redirect to "your browser is not supported" message. Be nice if Microsoft would provide some info regarding this OS, or maybe they have and I just couldn't find it.

    That's good, I'll wait until he releases the English version.

    hi blackwingcat, is the CoGetApartmentType issue fixed with the latest Japanese version v2.8j so that newer Firefox nightlies will work again with w2k?
  9. KernelEx for Win2000

    What I did was to install your latest KernelEx (I had a slightly older one) and it was installed with the default options except for condition variable that was unchecked. The only entry I checked was DirectX 10 stub, although I'm not sure exactly what that does yet. My video card does support DX10. The "K32GetMappedFileNameW" error is gone but now I'm getting this instead: The procedure entry point CoGetApartmentType could not be located in the dynamic library ole32.dll. CoGetApartmentType is for Windows 7 and later, is that call function available in ole32 and are you able to open the very latest 54 nightly inbound without this error??
  10. KernelEx for Win2000

    Got a new problem with the 54 nightlies, now getting this error: The procedure entry point K32GetMappedFileNameW could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll I've tried replacing and removing "K32GetMappedFileNameW" from xul.dll but in both cases I then get a "Can't lead XPCOM" error. Anybody else experiencing this? This is something they just added in the last few days as "K32GetMappedFileNameW" was not there prior.

    It looks like there is a new version of Java 6: 141 b31. Might as well forget the v131 then, if you are able to get a hold of this latest one blackwingcat I'd appreciate it. I'll be glad when Java is gone but it's still going to be around awhile yet.
  12. KernelEx for Win2000

    Hello blackwingcat, if you're referring to the November 2016 JRE 6 update 131v2 I did re-download that a few days ago and re-installed it but there was no difference. It still located to a separate Jre6_131 directory with no ability to uninstall through Add/Remove. It automatically installs the Java files through a dos window, it doesn't have the typical old interface with the prompts. Is this something new that Sun came out with the 6 versions and is intentional?
  13. KernelEx for Win2000

    Hello, I can't find the link to download the updated version, it's not on the page where you normally have your downloads, would you have a direct link?
  14. KernelEx for Win2000

    Hi blackwingcat, had some major problems with the latest java. It installed it into a new folder called Jre6_131 instead of overwriting the previous version Jre6. It doesn't work either, I'm just getting a blank white screen. But even worse there was no way to uninstall it in order to use the older version. Fortunately I had a older registry backup so I'm on Java 121 again. Please let me know if you're experiencing any of this.

    Hi, do you have a link where we can get the extended xp? I've searched and can't find anything recent.
