  1. Yeah not only can play swf but also Mpg 2-3-4 and wmv. Just about everything really. You can then stream it to a file or convert it to mp4 etc. Basically you can save it or convert it.
  2. Highlight link save link as. http://download.lenovo.com/Removal_movies/50228_t40_keyboard_install.swf   I think that is because the question was "How Do I Download This Thinkpad Video", not "How Do I Play This Thinkpad Video". Cheers and Regards Ye but he can open the SWF in VLC with the web address then save it.
  3. I'm surprised nobody mentioned that VLC can play SWF.
  4. So anyone want to bet on what the next excuse is going to be? Or will people start to realize that MS has to release patches for XP since they still suport it. They just are only supporting VLK professional versions of custumers with contracts and POS Versions of XP that do not require the same contracts.. As well as 2003 server 32bit that may, as well, 've borowed almost all of its IT technology from XP and 2000, except maybe a few minor things.
  5. They had to issue an IE6-8 patch as they still support a varied number of operating systems that shiped with those versions. If the case that was there was no XP specific update, there would be nothing really stopping anybody from applying those patches on XP unofficially. Like others had already said. we have POS version of XP supported to 2019, we have windows 2003 32bit and vista 32bit and almost certainly besides the kernel differences a majority of the code those operating systems were built with will run on XP. So, yeah, like we have been saying all along. IF there was no XP patch, I c
  6. Just lots of people talk about things that they don't know what they are talking about. Happens all of the time. Nothing to see here.
  7. I'd really like to get QTWEB Browser working in 98se ME then it would be really viable in 2014 on older computers.
  8. That file is for win 2k,XP original sp1-2, and 2k3 original and sp1...Its not a driver. Its a driver interface. All it wil do is is find your audio device and allow you to install the driver for the device if the operating system is lower than SP3. Meaning it only helps installing HD audio drivers on SP2 or lower. But it self is not a driver. Microsoft will email you the hotfix if you go to this link. This is likely not your problem though. That hotfix used to be included or may still be included in archived versions of realtek HD audio drivers as well. Thats how I got mine. before serv
  9. Contig+Power Defragmenter. Try it http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897428.aspx Page Defrag http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897426.aspx ccleaner run this before defraging. https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner PowerDefragmenter.zip
  10. MAybe enough to get me to switch to 8 from xp x64 for gaming since they re-neabled hardware accelerated audio. Will have to see though, I am not optimistic becasue the guy was like "that customers want" Then said "some" customers want. It just shows how disconnected MS is reality. He had it right the 1st time. No reason to try and back track and make mistakes.
  11. Sounds like a Bug. Nothing you can do about it. Maybe microsft will fix it in a service pack later on. Windows is always like this until a couple serivce packs comes out with any new OS sadly. Thats why I quit upgrading until the next os has fully matured. Ill stick with 2008 for the time being.
  12. Should be fine for atleast another 2 years. In the distant future I am not condonining piracy I am simply saying that if it becomes and issue later on the DIE hard users will find a way around it. since no new updates are coming out there wont be anything stoping people from applying the existing ones. And chances are any post EOL patches will be hacked versions transplanted from another OS that dont even look at validations. Since its no longr supported OS I doubt it will make any difernce at that point. There are have been may ways around this in the past. That i cant mention. Some are
  13. I'm just trying to teach him somthing. I bet alot of people didnt know you can do it that way atleast for the service packs. your right some of the fixes are not HOTFIX compliant and require extraction before they can be integrated or simple will not integrate I Know NLITE complains that itself cannot integrate some hotfixes. By whatever means OP you want to slipstream and integrate hotfixes go for it. You can do it yourself and gather all the files or download somone elses pack. use NLITE or RyanVM or somthing else. But I suggest you take my advice as far as the later part of what I wrot
  14. IDK if this is still true but. I used to have a win2k Pro Upg CD. I could just boot the cumputer with it then It would ask for a previous windows Disk. So I would put my Nt4 disk in the CD drive it would check it then I could put the 2k disc back in the cd drive and it would install. And Btw I slip streamed my 2kPro CD by using normal command. C:\SP4\UPDATE\UPDATE.EXE -S:C\WIN2K Just rename the SP to SP3.EXE and use like 7zip to extract it to C: Then Just Extract your upgrade CD to the XP folder on C drive. Now your commande will be C:\SP3\UPDATE\UPDATE.EXE -s:C:\XP BOOOOOM you have slip s
  15. Stil applies I think. Unfortunatly if you want to get rid of the blue you may have to use classic theme on win 7.... http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/change-office-s-appearance-HP001043996.aspx
