    Microsoft security essentials and Windows XP

    hey guys. have any of you downloaded the mpam-fe.exe file this March 2019? it seems to be about 90Mb (looks like MS "shrunk" the MSE definition exe file update lately) wonder if this one will still work with MSE 4.4.304 on XP (when I had that, I usually did manual updates to the MSE definitions and never do automatic updates)

    New Win7 ISOs available?

    yup. you said it dencorso. in the end, I'll just make my own integrated & updated win7 iso with all editions included [aka. AIO] but will leave out the telemetry patches edit 3/2: plus these new win7 ISOs MS had may be too big to download for some users who have a slow DSL or satellite internet connection (and do not include any usb 3.0/3.1 drivers for modern machines that use only usb 3.x ports)

    Youtube on win7/32 + IE10 - no video?

    why are you guys still running IE10? it's no longer available from MS and MS doesn't provide updates for IE10 on win7 anymore. can't you upgrade to IE11?

    Can Office 2013 somehow be ported to Vista?

    assuming the OP in that thread has a PC with an SSE2 capable processor; Office 2013 also requires an CPU with SSE2 support and does not run on non-SSE2 processors also need to install any .NET Framework 4.x version between 4.0 and 4.6 on Vista
  7. IE11 for Server 2012 is scheduled to be released sometime in spring 2019 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4488955

    Unsupported hardware in 1803 and 1809?

    that's easy Petr. Intel Yonah CPUs are 32bit only, no 64bit support -instruction set is always 32bit. Coreinfo app is reporting wrong info for the T2300E CPU as that processor is 32bit/x86 only. the CPU-Z tool should report better accurate info about the T2300e CPU than Coreinfo. I tried to boot from Win10 v1809 install media (either the regular Win10 1809 versions or the LTSC 2019 release) on an old Dell Inspiron e1405 laptop [which also uses Intel 945GM chipset] and it would just hang on the Windows logo screen for many hours doing nothing (no spinning dots on that boot screen). That is until I changed the processor from an Intel Core Duo T2700 (Yonah) to an Intel Core 2 Duo T7600 (Merom). After upgrading the CPU to the T7600, I booted again from the v1809 usb install media and it went through with no problems and no lockups. Edit 2/28 about the Dell e1405: It seems the v1803 release of win10 worked fine with the Intel Yonah Core Duo CPU on the dell e1405 laptop but not the v1809 release; only when I upgraded the CPU to any Socket M based Intel Merom CPU that I can run the 1809 version. So upgrade the processor on the Fujitsu-Siemens Esprimo Q5010 machine to an Intel T7200, T7400 or T7600 processor and see what happens (may also need a BIOS update to support the T7200/T7400/T7600 processors since my Dell e1405 laptop already had bios support for these cpus w/ bios rev. A10) And for the MSI 915GM Speedster-FA4 computer, you are better off running Win10 LTSB 2016, which is based on v1607 (see that is why I like to run the older LTSB/LTSC editions of Win10 on old hardware that can't work with newer Win10 releases, except for LTSC 2019 which requires newer hardware) that problem eventually got fixed by MS starting with the KB4476976 update in late January 2019, which resolves the compatibility problem with older AMD graphics cards. Edit 2/28: There's a topic in the Ten forums about running Win10 on really old hardware, especially old machines using Intel 915G/GM chipsets.

    Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    maybe this spring perhaps must wait a while for IE11 on Srv2012 since MS isn't gonna release it right away (come back in April 2019 and find out if IE11 for Server 2012 R0 shows up on MS Update Catalog) https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17454/lifecycle-faq-internet-explorer

    New Win7 ISOs available?

    I saw this recent topic in the MDL forums about new Win7 SP1 ISOs: https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/new-isos.79045/ as well as this blog from this site: https://borncity.com/win/2019/02/15/tip-new-windows-7-sp1-isos-install-image-downloadable/ anyone wanna try out these new Win7 ISOs on their Win7 computers?
  11. although you did not say back then what specific Gigabyte board you have AND what Realtek ALC chipset you have on that motherboard, videobruce. I also have a Gigabyte motherboard and it is a GA-78LMT-USB3 R2 board using Realtek ALC892 HD Audio chipset and have hooked up a pair of very good quality stereo speakers w/ hardware volume control on them, so the audio isn't as low as you have experienced for your board.
  12. you guys will have to wait until Microsoft actually releases it

    What is best Firefox version for Win-7?

    actually the current official version of Seamonkey (2.49.4) is based on FF 52.9.x . there also unofficial builds of Seamonkey from WG9S's web site, which come in both 32bit & 64bit builds (you wanna use either of his 2.49.x or 2.53 builds but don't use any of the 2.57 or SM trunk versions there, which are of course, not stable enough for daily use). on many of my Win7 PCs, I use current FF ESR version (60.5 ESR)

    Should I be being offered version 1809 by now?

    maybe v1809 will be more widely available on Tuesday Feb. 12. that would be about 90 days when v1809 was re-released on Nov. 13, 2018 and may be declared "business ready" thru the SAC channel (aka. Semi-Annual Channel). 1809 was only available thru SAC-T and LTSC channels but not yet thru SAC.
  15. a follow-up on this: a slightly better solution (rather than just manually changing file permissions to replace that wcp.dll file) is mentioned on this Tenforums page: https://www.tenforums.com/windows-updates-activation/123949-w10-1607-cumulative-updates-installs-successfully-only-until-2018-06-a-10.html#post1574275
