  1. to install .NET 4.8 on Win8.0 and their .net 4.8 updates, look in this thread from another forum and here too (need to be a member there to view links) that is not the case as Mozilla recently decided to extend Win7/8.x support and the upcoming Firefox ESR 115 release WILL support those versions until late 2024. not necessarily true for 8.1 w/out the bypass tool it's not like with newer server 2012 rtm updates on win8.0; not quite the same as newer server 2012 r2 updates on win8.1 what has worked with win8.0 doesn't quite work the same with win8.1, Jody yup. fails with "we couldn't complete the updates undoing changes" error message part way. conducting my own tests with the Feb. 2023 & Mar. 2023 w8.1 embedded / server 2012 r2 updates, they fail to install on normal win8.1 editions including win8.1 core/home edition, thus agreeing with Jaguarek62's assessment. that's why that bypass tool is needed to fully install Feb. 2023 & newer updates for "client" Win8.1 edition OSes (bypass not needed for win8.1 embedded industry edition yet as that one gets support until July 2023) I know because I use a win8.1 core/home os on my father's old 2013 Toshiba satellite c55a laptop on a backup hard drive
  2. it appears that these "new" Win7 ISO downloads have been pulled/removed by MS as I've recently got word from abbodi about them the links to them no longer work
  3. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1594270 saw this recent comment regarding Win7/8.x support for Firefox:
  4. well some old versions of ms store are compatible with ltsb 2015 & 2016: https://github.com/kkkgo/LTSB-Add-MicrosoftStore it's just that newer versions of ms store will only work with ltsc 2019, ltsc 2021 & newer at least ltsb 2016 v1607 gets support until Oct. 2026
  5. btw, windows server 2019 is based on version 1809 https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started/windows-server-release-info and i'm using w10 ltsc 2019 which is also based on 1809
  6. KB5022872 update just came out 2/14. check if this new update works (or not)
  7. ok die hard win7 users start installing/testing the KB5022872 Feb. 14 update whether it works or not on Win7 editions other than Win7 embedded standard & Server 2008 R2
  8. we'll see what happens come Tuesday Feb. 14 (Valentine's Day), which is next month's patch Tuesday
  9. stable 109.0.5414.75 release came out Tuesday 1/10 forget about v110 & greater
  10. https://borncity.com/win/2022/07/14/windows-8-1-zeigt-jetzt-warnungen-zum-supportende-im-januar-2023/ just add the following registry entry to disable/turn off the 8.1 EOL notifications after installing any update from July 2022 onward:
  11. I use registry paths HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome & HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge and input the "SuppressUnsupportedOSWarning" entry on those sections so that the warning for both Chrome & MS Edge is disabled for "all users" (aka. system wide) https://borncity.com/win/2022/12/05/windows-7-8-1-server-2012r2-deactivate-google-chrome-notification-to-upgrade-to-windows-10/
  12. like how buggy is LTSC 2019 on your PC? I have Win10 LTSC 2019 v1809 on my family's Dell Inspiron 620 desktop PC (a sandy bridge intel i5-2500 [2nd gen Intel] cpu) that came out in late 2011 [slightly older than the PCs RayZen have and using the pre-installed western digital 1TB HDD but has 8Gb of RAM] and is relatively fast AND stable (few to no bugs on there with the recent updates to LTSC 2019) LTSC 2019 feels like 98 SE (2nd edition) to me (not 98 gold/rtm)
  13. better solution is to upgrade to LTSC 2019 (1809/RS5) support for LTSB 2016 1607 will end in mid-October 2026 while support for LTSC 2019 ends in January 2029
  14. in Win10 versions 20H2 & newer (latest one is 21H2 but 22H2 will be coming in autumn 2022), type this in the Run dialog box: explorer.exe shell:::{BB06C0E4-D293-4f75-8A90-CB05B6477EEE} saw that tip from this site
  15. MS Edge chromium dropped Adobe Flash support completely in early 2021
  16. unfortunately those Realtek USB audio drivers for several MSI Z690 boards are in modern UAD/DCH format, which only work on recent 64bit Win10 versions (build 16299 or higher). the RtDUsbAD_msi.inf file included in those USB audio drivers mention "NTamd64.10.0...16299", meaning NT 10.0 build 16299 is the minimum windows requirement and the RtUsbA64.sys driver file loads only with at least Win10 v1709 UAD/DCH drivers never work on anything less than Win10 v1709/RS3 (not even in Win7/8.x) and use HSA (aka. Hardware Support Application) based apps downloaded from Microsoft Store (and MS store also don't work on Win7) edit - plus those Z690 boards from MSI came with Realtek ALC4080/ALC4082 audio chipsets which came out a few years ago in spring 2020, when Win7 was already EOL
  17. MS store on Win8/8.1 is discontinued, sort of many apps from MS store are for Win10 & newer, not Win8.x https://redmondmag.com/articles/2018/08/20/microsoft-store-windows-8-app-updates.aspx
  18. July 2022 updates (not including the monthly rollups): KB5015875 security-only update {download from MS Catalog} KB5015805 cumulative IE11 update for Server 2012 {download from MS Catalog} need newest KB5016263 servicing stack update installed first before installing these July 2022 updates
  19. check out these recent articles I saw: Softpedia News - Turns Out You Can Install Windows XP on a 1MHz Computer Neowin - Booting Windows XP on a 1MHz Pentium CPU takes three hours guess someone out there was bold enough to try to run XP on the oldest and slowest intel pentium system
  20. it seems only the July 2021 & August 2021 security only updates [aka. KB5004302 & KB5005094 for Win8 / Server 2012] (and any W8.x big monthly "rollups" from July 2021 onwards) are the only updates that do remove activex flash. the Sep 2021 security only updates like KB5005607 for Win8 and KB5005627 for Win8.1, on the other hand, do NOT remove flash as Microsoft mistakenly said they would include flash removal but in reality these updates do not even touch the adobe flash files and the flash player control panel app remains intact
  21. indeed. what Vistapocalypse is simply saying that only the update agent (or windows update client) on Win8 needs to updated with certain updates in order for windows update to function correctly (or it will ask to install a newer update agent if no win8 updates were installed when attempting to check for updates) and yes SHA-2 support was built-in Win8.x
  22. actually you need to install both KB3013767 and KB2999323 updates. KB3013767 updates windows update agent to 7.8.9200.17172 while KB2999323 updates windows update agent to 7.8.9200.17185 but you need both of them installed for WU to work in this current era. KB2999323 isn't listed as a standalone update in MS update catalog but the download links to both KB3013767 and KB2999323 are revealed after searching for just KB3013767 from MUC.
  23. on the amd side, maybe an amd r9 290 but amd only provided very old vista drivers for those - see this topic from Vistax64.com
  24. some OEMs like Dell & HP at that time did provide some Vista system recovery DVD discs (like for my mom's old Dell Inspiron e1405 laptop and my cousin's old HP pavilion dv6500 series entertainment notebook pc which bundled those Vista DVDs)
