  4. Firefox 53 on windows 2000

    A lot of websites break with Internet Explorer 6. If you try to load http://google.com with Internet Explorer 6, it will fail. I am not a software engineer and don't know what causes it. My guess is that websites have been specifically and deliberately coded to block Internet Explorer 6. Wikipedia starting blocking Windows XP machines with Internet Explorer on October 17, 2017, but Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox are not blocked: https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/HTTPS/Browser_Recommendations However, Internet Explorer 5.5 and below on my machines with Windows 98 and NT 4.0 load Google without issues:
  5. Firefox 53 on windows 2000

    Your issues could likely be due to the fact that Pentium 4's are ancient in today's web-centered world. I cannot use a Pentium 4 on today's YouTube without it maxing out the processor at 100% CPU activity. I use Firefox 45.8.0 on a Pentium M with 2GB RAM and SSD with no issues. It supports all the websites I've requested access to. While the Pentium M is still an old processor, its cache and design are leaps ahead of the Pentium 4, and it has better performance overall.
  6. As you may know, WinRAR 4.11 is the last version to "officially" support Windows 2000. However, since Windows XP still works with WinRAR, I am curious to know what the API's or dependencies are that prevent WinRAR from running on Windows 2000. Is there a way to port them to Windows 2000?
  7. Firefox 53 on windows 2000

    Use the portable version of Firefox ESR 45.8.0: http://sdfox7.com/2000/Important_EOL_Updates/FirefoxPortableESR_45.8.0_English.paf.exe
  8. Firefox 53 on windows 2000

    I am using Firefox 45.8.0 ESR. It was released March 2017 and is the most recent version that installs on an updated Windows 2000. I am using Windows 2000 Service Pack 4, the Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 Security Rollup Package (SRP), and Gurgelmeyer's 5.1.2195 UURollup update. I am also using Internet Explorer 5.5 Service Pack 2 from July 2001, which installs some updated system components compared to the Internet Explorer 5.0 from March 1999 that is included with RTM Windows 2000.
  9. SOLVED! After further testing on a newer system, I have determined that Flash Player 30 does indeed work on Windows 2000. However, I suspect the culprit for the earlier failure is because the older system lacks a SSE2 compatible processor. So, you will need a SSE2 compatible processor in order to execute the Flash Player 30 installer.
  10. The standard release channel for Adobe Flash Player has been updated. Version 29.0.0.171 was released May 9, 2018. Tested and working on Windows 2000 (see prerequisites in the first post). Internet Explorer ActiveX: https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/latest/help/install_flash_player_ax.exe Mozilla Firefox NPAPI: https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/latest/help/install_flash_player.exe However, the Internet Explorer and Firefox beta installers for Flash Player 30 (30.0.0.85) are currently not working on Windows 2000, even though I've tested them and they work on Windows XP. The installers appear to pause, then throw up a Dr Watson Program Error dialog. I suspect we need to patch either Windows 2000, or make homemade patched installers that run on Windows 2000.
  11. TeamViewer crashes after update

    @FranceBB Several months ago I experienced a black screen issue with TeamViewer. It was noted on TeamViewer's website and the solution was to revert to the previous version. If you want to try it, I have the old version in my FTP, version 12.0.77831, May 9, 2017: http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/TeamViewer_Setup.exe
  12. 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 30 (30.0.0.85). It is tested and working on Windows XP with Internet Explorer 8, Google Chrome 49, and Mozilla Firefox 52.8.0 ESR. It was released Wednesday, May 9, 2018: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer.html Internet Explorer ActiveX: https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashruntimes/flashplayer/install_flash_player_ax.exe Mozilla Firefox NPAPI, and NPAPI for Google Chrome 44 and older: https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashruntimes/flashplayer/install_flash_player.exe Google Chrome 45 to 49 PPAPI: https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashruntimes/flashplayer/install_flash_player_ppapi.exe Old version uninstaller: https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashruntimes/flashplayer/uninstall_flash_player.exe
  13. Just popping in to let you know this month's Patch Tuesday (29.0.0.140) and the beta (29.0.0.155) both are tested and working on Windows 2000.

  15. Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

    Just use the solution as demonstrated by @dencorso and me: 1) Accept the license agreement and download the current JRE for Java 8 Update 171 from this page: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre8-downloads-2133155.html 2) Click on "jre-8u171-windows-i586.tar.gz" file to download it: http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u171-b11/512cd62ec5174c3487ac17c61aaa89e8/jre-8u171-windows-i586.tar.gz 3) Extract the content to your current Program Files Java directory and overwrite all the files. I demonstrated my procedure here:
