  1. Sorry to bump this old topic, but NT 4.0 will support Flash up to version 9.0.47 (for Firefox, not IE). Also, you can use Adobe/Acrobat Reader up to version 7.0.9.
  2. How about Open Office 3.0? And Flash Player 10? Those would be amazing.
  3. To use a newer(ish) version of VLC view the following topic and scroll down to the very last post on page 3. I recommend version 0.9.8a. And All versions of Flash 9 work, including the latest 9.0.289. just open the npswf32.dll file (should be in the opera plugins folder once you install it) in a hex editor, and overwrite the function "MonitorFromWindow" with "GetAppCompatFlags". Then save the file, and replace it inside your opera plugins folder. OpenOffice.org 2.4.3 works, and to install it view the link below. I'm pretty sure that only one hex edit has to be done though, the one i
  4. As far as I know, you need at least flash 9 to view youtube. And as such, you need at least NT 4.0 sp6a. (see link below): http://www.betaarchive.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=35519 Opera 10.63 still displays youtube pretty well, despite being over 5 years old, and you can install either Flash 9.0.47 or 9.0.280 (if you use a hex editor on npswf32.dll (the plugin file) and replace MonitorFromWindow with GetAppCompatFlags)). 9.0.280 is probably more secure than 9.0.47, and videos play, but the video controls do not all show. Opera 10.63 does have HTML5 support, and at one time I was able t
  5. Hello MSFN, A couple years ago, I attempted to dual boot Windows 2000 with a computer that had Windows XP installed on it. I had done some dual-booting before, but only with NT4 and 2000,and that went fine because I installed NT4 first. I realized afterwards that it was an unintelligent mistake to install 2000 alongside XP as although Windows 2000 installed fine, I had broken Windows XP. However, I wasn't too concerned at the time since: (a) All user files (documents, images) were backed up, (b) I still had my product key, and (c) I didn't have much need for XP at the time anyways. Althou
  6. A few things I have discovered: Vanilla Windows 2000 (No unofficial updates) - Flash 11 up to 11.4 is usable by using a hex editor (see link here: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1012569?start=0&tstart=0) - EaseUS Partition Manager 6.5.2 runs on Windows 2000 without any problems. I know versions 8-9 don't work but I'm not sure if 6.5.2 runs or not. - Avast Antivirus 8.x runs on Windows 2000, but do not use with UURollup/BlackWingCat's kernel as Avast thinks a few unofficial update files are malware (which they are not - Adobe Reader 9.5.5 is the last Adobe Reader for Wi
  7. Currently I run NT4 in VMs. I sometimes use Windows 2000, including on real hardware, but Windows 7 is my main operating system.
  8. My Windows 2000 is on D:, but personally, I was trying to get it to install to my F:\ drive (a partition with 22.4 GB left). To avoid leaving it out, my D: drive has only 16MB left. I have no plans to use it for anything. I do have a D-Link adapter and I was trying to find a “software” that might work with my drivers. Guess I didn't think that idea through enough. I haven't tried disabling the Service yet. I will try it later and reply with the result. My router is an Actiontec r1000h. But this machine has no wireless card, so that is why I need the adapter to get a connection. I will
  9. I downloaded this once more, eager to see if it would actually work, testing with vlc 0.9.8a and 1.0.5. For 0.9.8a, I renames the file to shell 32.vlc and had to hexedit it in libvlccore.dll. For version 1.0.5, I had to hexedit vlc.exe. I was amazed that they actually load and work. VLC 0.9.8a loads, the menu and dialogs work, it plays music and video, the basic controls (play, pause, fast forward, stop, volume), playlists and the menu and equalizer work. I haven't tested CD's and DVD's yet. I can't seem to get my physical CD Drive to work in NT 4.0 under Virtualbox (ISO's work), although it
  10. The intel software was trying to force itself to install to my boot drive (which is less than 1gb and only has 36 mb left). The installation was 50 mb and even when I select the option to install it to a different drive (in this case my F:\ drive, also a hard disk partition), it insists on putting 39 MB on my C:\ drive and 11 MB on my F:\ drive. I could seperate the driver installation from the client manager portion. Using Windows' tool Found New Hardware, I could find the drivers for Windows 2000, install them, and boot successfully. So I installed the software as normal, and even after us
  11. I went to D-Link's website and downloaded all the drivers for the previous versions of my D-Link DWA-130 USB Adapter (not knowing for sure that they would work, but figuring that they might, since they are for the same type of hardware and by the same manufacturer)(I downloaded versions A through D) :http://support.dlink.ca/ProductInfo.aspx?m=DWA-130 All of the zipped files had a setup folder and the actual drivers contained inside, and I ran all 4 setup programs (starting with the first and ending with the last) and I got to the part where it asked me to plug in my USB adapter, which was p
  12. Hello. I have been trying to get my D-Link Wireless N300 USB adapter to work on Windows 2000 with SP4 and Update Rollup 1 (official). I will install some unofficial packages later but I need internet access to download those packages, some software and to download some of my hardware drivers. When I run the setup program located on the CD, it installs well and I can even connect to my wireless internet using the built-in D-Link Wireless Connection tool. But when I restart my computer, it displays an error : "winlogon.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to
  13. If you haven't installed UURollup, in combination with USP 5 and Unofficial Update Rollup 2, I would strongly recommend those. They add a lot more compatibility to Windows 2000. But don't use any other custom kernels in that case. It will crash your system. I also installed Office 2007 on my Windows 2000, but I was able to uninstall it using the Remove Office 2007 tool (you may have to remove shortcuts to the office EXE files.) For more, you may check out this link: https://www.raymond.cc/blog/how-to-remove-or-uninstall-microsoft-office-2010/(use at your own risk). A while ago, I experimented
  14. I am curious to see if this would work with KernelEx 4.5.2, in addition to the all the latest updates. Perhaps they can add some of the dependencies needed by Windows 98.
