    Is it worth updating to WMP11?

    I was referring to MP version 11, as is indicated in the title of this thread.

    I guess my answer was geared more towards people who aren't tech savvy and just want something that works.

    Windows Media Player was released 12 years ago in 2006, and will not be able to play many files available today. For years I have highly recommended VLC Media Player. It still supports Windows XP and will play many files, even one you may never have heard of such as mkv, flv, etc. The current version is 3.0.4 and their webpage is here: https://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html

    Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

    I am pleased to announce that I have tested the first beta for the next major release of Adobe Flash Player 32. Beta channel for Adobe Flash Player was updated to 32.0.0.93 on November 21, and is confirmed working on Windows XP. https://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer.html Mozilla Firefox (NPAPI) and Google Chrome 44 and older: https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashruntimes/flashplayer/install_flash_player.exe Internet Explorer: https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashruntimes/flashplayer/install_flash_player_ax.exe Google Chrome 45 and newer: https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashruntimes/flashplayer/install_flash_player_ppapi.exe Uninstaller: https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashruntimes/flashplayer/uninstall_flash_player.exe

Many sites no longer work or are broken after upgrading to Internet Explorer 6 so I do not recommend it!

    Does Microsoft Office work on 64 bit XP? I think I recall the failure of Office to work on XP being a major turnoff.

    If Adobe is patching security vulnerabilities in a barely week-old release, then it really is time for Flash Player to die!
  8. An out-of-cycle update was released to the stable release channel on November 20.

  9. Yes. I have used that file for years. I have the Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 version and the Windows 95/98/ME version in my FTP. Windows NT/2000/XP/2003: http://sdfox7.com/2000/Important_EOL_Updates/daylightsavingfix.exe Windows 95/98/ME: http://sdfox7.com/win98/daylightsavingfix98.exe

  11. To my knowledge there is no difference between the files. I have successfully used that file on Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows NT 4.0. 
  12. If you’re interested in having the original archived Microsoft link for historical purposes, it’s here: https://web.archive.org/web/20060622081454/http:/download.microsoft.com/download/c/3/8/c386d681-4fcc-4dcf-838d-e3ff3ff67174/SPEU.exe Oddly, the original Microsoft link still “works”, but the file it downloads “is not a valid Win32 application”: http://download.microsoft.com/download/c/3/8/c386d681-4fcc-4dcf-838d-e3ff3ff67174/SPEU.exe

    Running Windows 98 in 2017...

    Just wanted to put these out here for TBS (Throwback Saturday) Recently, I’ve been using my 19 year old IBM ThinkPad 600E a little more often to see what it can still do. It’s amazing how well this thing still runs. It was manufactured in September 1999. It is a testament to the quality of manufacturing back in the day. Even Flash Player 7 (http://sdfox7.com/win95/flashplayer7r73_winax.exe) still works! Secure web browsing is a little trickier, IE 5 is too old and Mozilla Firefox works better, even with persistent security certificate errors.

    Audacity 2.3.0 fails to run on Windows XP

    Still not working. Apparently there are enough changes in 2.3.x that complicate running the program on XP. I wonder if a different compiler was used by the Audacity team. Major hacks shouldn't be needed to get the program to run, especially since 2.3 is a minor version update and not a major update version. I don't see why all versions of Audacity 2.x.x wouldn't be supported on XP.
