  1. You're very right. I haven't been on much. And I guess I've sold out since I have installed Windows 7. I still have a dual boot partition with Vista so I can do testing and development on Vista. It is relatively easy to figure out the missing function and create a wrapper for usermode code. Things get trickier with kernel mode code (including the .sys) that is loaded in device manager. Unfortunately, my experience with driver development is a little limited and the meaning of the errors isn't clear to me. A patch is probably possible but will require research
  2. This should do it. It wasn't that hard once I re-learned how to do it. You need to hex edit AGM.dll and AdobeLinguistic.dll and replace all references of kernel32.dll to kernel33.dll kernel33.dll
  3. Clarify: Does the screensaver activate at the normal time or does it happen instantly?
  4. W8 and W10 are garbage to me. I am just going to keep using hacks to keep Vista and 7 usable as long as possible Agreed. Windows 7 probably won't see many compatibility issues for a few more years, due to it being the most popular operating system and all, as long as Windows 10 doesn't take it over, with the way MS seems to be shoving it down our throats. Out of curiosity, do you prefer Windows Vista or Windows 7? I tried to use Windows 7 for a little while, and I even heavily modified it to look and act like Vista, but it just wasn't for me. Vista tends to run snappier, and I vastly prefer

  6. So far, it does not work. It times out when trying to install the driver
  7. Which driver did you try and what did you do specifically?
  8. Desktop Radeon graphics are mod-able to a point. I don't know about mobile or Intel graphics
  9. taskeng.exe is a normal process and not malware. You may have a misbehaving process or service on startup causing it to choke. I would go to msconfig and look for anything unusual. Uncheck anythng you don't need (and is not part of the OS of course)
  10. 8/15/2012 - any reason you are using such old drivers? Anyway, it appears to be installed correctly. Code 10 is very difficult to troubleshoot because it tells almost nothing about the problem. What was the original OS? Did it work immediately before installing XP?
  11. What do the device properties show for the AMD chip?
