    Thanks! Great tool! Good job! Win2kreviver
  2. For those that are concerned, build 4.3.1 is now working also. win2kreviver
  3. Ivo Belchev's Classic Shell can be used again in Insider Builds 18204, and 17723. I think it is great news for those that dislike the current metro interface.
  4. Summary of tests: Installed non sse version on a MSI 6378 mobo with 512 mb of ram, winxp sp3 (really ancient hardware). Ran well, much better than firefox 48.02. Also using process lasso from bitsum.com version 8.9 (free for xp and win2k users). Application really helps with browsing and services like svchost.exe, info on request. Soyo mobo, via chipset vt8363 768 mb ram, windows 2000 athlon xp palamino 1600+ running at 1.4 ghz. Using extended kernel and blackwingcat's updates. Have not installed process lasso yet. Using only 15 services at the moment. Win2kreviver
  5. @roytam1 Thanks for the fascinating and educational article. Win2kreviver
  6. @cc333 I have been able to run xp on a pentium II with 256 mb of ram. It will run, but I never tried the Internet on it. It was part of a contest between me and one of my friends to see what was the absolute lowest values that would run xp. He won with 70 mb of ram. Mine ran adequately, but his was really slow! The mobo was a P2XLX slot I. Win2kreviver
  7. MSVC++ 2012 requirements are for Windows XP and above. Visual C++, will it work in Windows 2k or below? Thanks for the info. Win2kreviver
  8. That is fantastic! What version do I need? BlackwingCat's? Extended Kernel version? Do I need Tomasz86's updates? @dencorso: Thanks for the info, I will try to look into that. The SSE2 set was not introduced until the Pentium 4 in 2001 and the AMD AthlonX64 in 2003. Pentium III and the Athlon series did not have SSE2. If this is the case, then non SSE2 processors have the possibility of running New Moon. Win2kreviver
  9. Roytam1, Thanks for the excellent work, great job. Your ia-32 version has allowed me to install an up-to-date browser on a Pentium III using 512 MB of ram to actually surf the Internet. I have run into no problems at all either installing it or using it. The non sse2 versions has opened up countless possibilities of reviving old hardware on windows. Even newer Linux requires the sse2 instruction set. Has anyone tried using windows 2k with your browser with good results? I will try to do that as soon as possible. This version of pale moon even runs faster that non-sse2 browsers, (chrome, firefox) that I have been using on this 17 year old Micron Millenia which has I have been using since 2000. win2kreviver
  10. sdfox, Thanks for the updates, fantastic! However the chrome URL should be: http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/ Keep up the great work.
  11. I have an older PC that runs Windows 2000 without a hitch: AMD Athlon XP 1900 processor 768 MB RAM Soundblaster AWE32 soundcard NVidia 4200 128 MB Video Card. 40GB IDE HDD Plays DVD Movies with no stutter, with VLC, amazing! Soyo Mobo built about 2002 Been doing so since 2009.
  12. I still use it on several PC's, runs great. Also run Windows 2000 with unofficial updates, and LXLE X64. Windows XP runs fewer services and has a memory overhead almost as low as Windows 2000. I am currently investigating full OS's with low memory requirement for older hardware, and Windows XP seems to have the edge for now. More to follow.
  13. @harkaz, Thanks again for all your hard work, it is truly appreciated to keep alive one of the best OS ever made!
  14. Thank you so much for providing these updates for an excellent operating system. Your outstanding work to keep it going after sixteen years is fantastic. Compared to XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10, it runs on half the processes and services as the others do. Great Job and all of us that still use the OS find that it is still relevant in today's computing environments with outdated and otherwise useless machines that will be thrown away. What you have done should be the envy of any Linux programmer, even though they have come a long way.with open source. win2kreviver
