  1. Whoa, haven't been here in a while. Anyone remember me? I'm not exactly new, but I'm finally back after a LONG hiatus. Couldn't access the email I had used for this account. KernelEx seems to have died out development-wise, huh? I haven't exactly been into the computer stuff lately, so maybe I'll hang around the General Discussion board and respond where I can.
  2. Sorry for not replying sooner, I couldn't get around to it until now. I tried both your builds, and they both worked fine. I wasn't experiencing the same problems you were.
  3. I've just made the new build, and on shutdown, it just gives me this after clearing the screen: But then it shuts down normally. I thought it might just be a one time thing. But now it's happening every time I shutdown. I can't seem to find the registry key that is causing this. Anyway, new build: Download You're welcome.
  4. This isn't happening to me at all.. I can't seem to figure out what's going on with your builds. Try to upload your most current build with the newest GitHub repository and I'll see if I have the same problem as you are having.
  5. Thanks Leyok! The Firefox installer actually goes faster in this one, but it still doesn't complete the installation.
  6. Here's the new build! KernelEx-dev.7z Here's the compile log: @Drugwash It doesn't seem like there's anything wrong. I checked the compile log and it looks fine.
  7. My bad, wrong assumption about added commands. That CMD.EXE command in coolman's log only shows up when sdbcreate fails to build (as I notice when building under XP), because under my main 98SE I can compile sdbcreate without problems and when it automatically tries to run (twice, as it builds both Release and Debug versions through the full batch command), it only shows a MessageBox saying: "The APPHELP.DLL file is linked to missing export NTDLL.DLL:NtOpenFile." But there is no mention of CMD.EXE anywhere in my 98SE compilation log. Up until this time, I haven't been able to succesfully install one single build of my own, despite everything being built without problems. Neither the ones built under 98SE, nor the ones built under XP-SP3. They all report failing to open WinSta0, install verification never happens (when uninstalling in Safe Mode, there's always two registry keys: "KexNeedsReboot" and "KexVerify" that must be deleted prior to uninstalling). Again, building and installing 4.5.2 under the very same conditions, complete flawlessly and the test system works correctly. Therefore I ask again, for the last time: does anybody build and install correctly from Leyok's code at GitHub, under the following environment? - VisualC 6.0 (Enterprise or Professional) with XTREE patch applied - PlatformSDK february 2003 - Windows98 DDK - NSIS installer 2.44 or 2.46 Do you have the Directories correct? (Include files, Library files, entries in autoexec.bat (especially in 98SE), etc.). You mentioned it yourself. Check this out: Here is COMPILE.TXT, FYI. Install Service Pack 6 for Visual C++ 6.0. Then try to build again. Post your compile log. Let me take a look. I'll see if I can figure out why your builds don't work.
  8. Sorry, by debug log in the last post, I meant compile log. I just fixed it right now. I'll post a KernelEx.log. RP9 still not compatible. Firefox not installing, seems to freeze at Installing Language Files (en-US) EDIT: I couldn't find a KernelEx.log anywhere in the system. Pretty peculiar, because I could find one before. Hmm.
  9. Alright, I just grabbed the newest repository and the build was a complete success. Here's the new build: KernelEx-dev.7z sdbcreate.exe failed to build. But the .NSI installer compiled OK so I don't think this is a big deal because Drugwash says it won't run under Win9x as mentioned in the quote above. Or was that only Xeno's builds? Oh, it doesn't matter. It seemed to have tried to execute an instance of CMD.EXE, which is not present in a clean install of a Win9x machine. You have to get it from a 3rd Party, the Win2k one that was re-compiled to work under Win9x. @Leyok Something I've noticed with your new builds, Firefox 3 doesn't install, it just stops at 'Installing Language Files (en-US)'. After some working around that, I got it to install, then I ran it, and it tries to load but it doesn't run or show the GUI or ANYTHING and just crashes on start. It doesn't show its presence, just this one error message: I can't figure out what the deal is with that. KernelEx 4.5.2 runs Firefox 3 perfectly. By the way, just a warning everyone: DON'T install Revolutions Pack along with this. The following has been mentioned before, SP3.x MAY be fine, but RP and Leyok's builds together can make deleted files stay in their original locations and new changes/items and icons not appear until you hit F5 to refresh and make your icons and taskbar glitchy and just make your system more unstable and unusable. Once again, ABSOLUTELY DON'T install RP with one of these new builds installed. But now I can sort of understand why RP (sometimes USP) wasn't built to go with Kex and Kex wasn't built to go with RP/USP. I say USP sometimes because of the bottom line of this quote, which I made bold for your convenience: But if it says that, I guess the newer USP has a little more problems running with Kex. But who's to know, and what can I say? This is only Beta software so far. It's what you have to expect from it. Also, after I've installed these recent builds, the computer hasn't been able to restart using the Start Menu shutdown, It just acts like nothing happened. So I try restarting again or run some sort of application (any application, including others that allow the computer to restart such as SHExitWindowsEx (same as start menu shutdown), runonce -q, and others. But it just gives me an error message like this: I just have to force it to restart by holding the power button. Anyway, here's the compile log:
  10. I'm trying to compile the newest build, but there's one problem - KexBases.dll doesn't build with the other files with batch build nor alone with batch build. Here's the debug log: This hasn't happened until PrintDlgEx was renamed to print.c in the latest repository. It says in the debug log I have to compile PREP (release) project first, but I HAD already compiled it. In fact, I just compiled it with batch build just now manually. I just copied PREP.EXE to the Release folder. But I'm still getting the same error. Here's KexBases.plg:
  11. Now that you mention it, maybe I'll go with the i7-3770K.
  12. Sony Vegas Pro 5.0 works with Kex 4.5.2 and 4.6.0 Beta 1. No issues so far.
  13. I made a new build from the newest repository with XP because it is easier... KernelEx-dev.7z I had to include PDH.DLL and PSAPI.DLL in this because I was having problems with KernelEx after I installed it without those files.. SP3 didn't help. Here's the compile log.. Still getting some warnings... but you should expect that from a beta version of a software...
