  1. I'm just getting around to this post now, but glad to see you found a solution. Something else you should consider is that not all Archive,org times and dates snapshots will work. Even though there will be a download link, it will download a defective file. The Archive links that I saved many years ago for the 2000 service packs (including SP4) have consistently worked without issues: http://sdfox7.com/win2ksp.htm I also have the service packs in my root /2000 directory, which are on my FTP and will work even if the Archive goes down, which it occasionally does: http://sdfox7.com/2000/
  2. Search Companion is a component of Windows, not Internet Explorer. It seems the functionality might have been disabled in your configuration.
  3. @Mathwiz Of course, unless you have a specific reason for using WMP, you could just install VLC, which is far more versatile than WMP.
  4. @Mathwiz have you looked into this: Error message when you try to install Windows Media Player 10 on a Windows XP Service Pack 2-based computer: "This version of Windows Media Technologies is incompatible with this version of Windows" I know that the article says SP2, but that's likely because SP3 hadn't been released yet at the time WMP10 came out. It may also affect SP3 too.
  5. @roytam1 Personally, if I were you, I would remove all references in your packages and compilations to Matt A Tobin and his work. He's not worth your aggravation!!!
  6. So today I did a clean install of NT 4.0 on my ThinkPad T23. I also added Office XP for good measure. (I've previously run the factory restore before which has Windows 2000, but since my 600 has 98SE, T41 has 2000, and T61p has XP, I found the T23 with only 1GB quite appropriate for NT 4.0). I stuck with Internet Explorer 5.5, since Internet Explorer 6 fails to load sites like Google on any OS that supports it. NT 4.0 is still just as stable, and runs just as well as it always has. Opera 10 isn't as long in the tooth as I expected. Enjoy. These images are hosted on my FTP and do not take up space on MSFN.
  7. What a pity, there are millions of obsolete computers that Google/YouTube won't be able to data-mine from!
  8. @roytam1 Thank you for your hard work in preserving browser support on Windows 2000 and Windows XP. One question: I encounter HTML5 issues on YouTube with your Pale Moon 26.5 for Windows 2000. Is there a workaround for this? I can always use VLC to network stream, but I was wondering what would cause this, and if there is a fix. I am using a fully-updated Windows 2000 with all the patches through end of support in 2010.
  9. I think it's probably impossible to quantify the number. However, many companies, including my own, rely on Java applet plug-in for intranet sites that have been around for "The Ages."
  10. @cephead Windows Media Player 10 installer is still available directly from Microsoft, they have not removed the link: Download Windows Media Player 10 from Official Microsoft Download Center Direct download is here: https://download.microsoft.com/download/1/2/a/12a31f29-2fa9-4f50-b95d-e45ef7013f87/MP10Setup.exe Archived version from February 15, 2005 is here: https://web.archive.org/web/20050825103327/http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=b446ae53-3759-40cf-80d5-cde4bbe07999&displaylang=en, direct download is https://web.archive.org/web/20050303001123/http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/2/a/12a31f29-2fa9-4f50-b95d-e45ef7013f87/MP10Setup.exe
  11. So, I've discovered that Google Earth (and with UURollup installed) are no longer able to connect to the imagery servers on Windows 2000 SP4 and XP SP2. However, these Google Earth versions still work on XP SP3. Does anyone know what cryptographic updates XP SP3 has but that 2000 SP4 and XP SP2 are missing? Is it possible to port to 2000 SP4? http://sdfox7.com/2000/files/gew2kfail.jpg
  12. @FranceBB @jumper @someguy25 @i430VX @VistaLover @rloew @Dibya @I41Mar @Mathwiz @aviator @RED-CHAMBER @Tamris @CoRoNe SOLVED! Thank you all for your troubleshooting and input. After installing a fresh Dell OEM copy of Windows XP on my Inspiron 1420, and "one step at a time" trial and error, I discovered the missing culprit: Visual Studio 2013 (VS2013): https://download.microsoft.com/download/2/E/6/2E61CFA4-993B-4DD4-91DA-3737CD5CD6E3/vcredist_x86.exe I tried several different things, one at a time. Once I installed this package, Audacity 2.3.1 immediately began working. I'm thankful for this Audacity thread which helped me FINALLY discover the culprit: https://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopic.php?p=272186#p272186 Note, my Dell XP copy is SP3 RTM with IE6. So, no further updates to Windows XP or IE are needed.
  13. WinRar 5.70 beta 2 was released February 21: https://www.rarlab.com/ the update details can be found here: https://www.rarlab.com/rarnew.htm
  14. Thanks, I'm probably going to compress and upload to my FTP. The file you provided is a stub which will eventually stop working, but I now have the complete download.
  15. Anyway you can compress it and upload that somewhere?
  16. I guess, I understand the Chrome fix, but where did you find Chrome Portable 49? I'd love to add that to my collection.
  17. How are you running Chrome Portable on Windows XP? On the other hand, you're correct, the beta channel for Adobe Flash Player has been updated to and is confirmed working on Windows XP SP3. 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
  18. That's one of the reasons I archived Flash Player 29. Well , not really. The real reason is that Flash is the final version for SSE processors: http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/flash_sse_29.0.0.171/ Released May 8, 2018 Flash Player for Firefox, Chrome 44 and below, and Opera Presto (NPAPI): http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/flash_sse_29.0.0.171/install_flash_player.exe Flash Player for Internet Explorer (ActiveX): http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/flash_sse_29.0.0.171/install_flash_player_ax.exe Flash Player for Google Chrome 45+, and Opera Blink (PPAPI) : http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/flash_sse_29.0.0.171/install_flash_player_ppapi.exe
  19. Yes, Core 2 Duo T7500 supports SSE2. That's fine, I'll be sticking with Audacity 2.2.2.
  20. ADVAPIMS.DLL and ADVAPIXP.DLL are both red:
  21. I downloaded C++ from here, still the 142 error: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=52685
  22. I also installed Visual C++ 2017, still a no go with the 142 error. This is silly. I usually avoid programs that are dependent on numerous (frivolous) other software packages. Why don't they just include what you need in the install package?
  23. This is pretty close: Moving to <iframe> embeds Given the progress we've made with HTML5 <video>, we’re now defaulting to the HTML5 player on the web. We're also deprecating the "old style" of Flash <object> embeds and our Flash API. We encourage all embedders to use the <iframe> API, which can intelligently use whichever technology the client supports. https://youtube-eng.googleblog.com/2015/01/youtube-now-defaults-to-html5_27.html Also, it seems that IE8 DOES support HTML5 to some degree, if not completely. I guess "limited" is the appropriate word. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/289225/does-internet-explorer-8-support-html-5
  24. Still not working. I get I want to start from the beginning. With a fully patched XP system and no other software, what else am I missing? Visual C++ of some kind? Net Framework (there's only a million different versions). This thread has become long with different scenarios, and hard for me to follow.
