  1. Well you can either use a proxy mod to get Windows Update working again or use @greenhillmaniac's Vista Update Repository and for 2008 updates this
  2. Yep, i also can't boot Vista with the new ntoskrnl. I replaced the file fron the MEGA folder used for 2008 updates. Status: 0xc000000f I finally found the issue, even though i routed cmd to the folder, where the installation files are located, it didn't replace the files. No wonder it can't boot if the files are missing. after moving the files manually, everything works nicely again.
  3. Nope, the only addon i managed to install was FrankerFaceZ (Addon for Twitch.tv).
  4. So i finally managed to do a clean install on my pc and install all the updates from the repo +2008 Updates. It took a whole day to install all of it but it was worth it. Extended Kernel works amazingly well with Chromium 90. Websites load really fast and YouTube playback also works without any issues.. oh and it's great to have Aero Glass back. The only thing that is kinda buggy are some extensions that just doesn't want to install "Details: "Default locale is defined but default data couldn't be loaded." I also tried to install Steam but it refuses to start since it detects the OS
  5. Yeah i ended up installing Windows 2000 in english first and installing the german language pack afterwards. Dutch is also a great language but unfortunately i can't understand it fully haha Just tried Pale Moon and wow, it works amazingly well. Now i need to find a better motherboard/cpu that is a bit more modern. My current Single Core P4 W200 PC doesn't really enjoy the modern internet that much
  6. It seems there's currently no way to obtain the latest version of extended kernel with german language support/or get the latest version of it in general? I don't mind installing the enu version (if it even works). The legacy update site doesn't show any updates (maybe because of language mismatch
  7. I don't think that anyone today is using Windows Vista for streaming or gaming but i'm pleased to say that the Elgato HD 60 S works fine on Windows Vista! It's a USB 3 1080p 60 FPS capture card which is widely known by Twitch streamers and is only meant to work on Windows 10. So @WinClient5270 you can add it to the list, if you like https://gc-updates.elgato.com/windows/drivers/hd60-s/download.php download the drivers from here, extract the exe with 7-ZIP and manually install the drivers in device-manager. The Elgato Streaming Software doesn't work because the installer blocks it but it'
  8. Elgato keeps saying that the drivers only work on Windows 10 and aren't meant for Windows 7.. well, it seems to work even better on Vista! I'm so glad to finally have it working on my fav OS and the solution is so damn simple.. Download the drivers from here: https://help.elgato.com/customer/portal/articles/2405414-elgato-gaming-hardware-drivers extract the exe and just install the driver with device-manager. manually. I don't know if the elgato capture software works, i'm using OBS which has more options and better recording abilities.
  9. Today's the last day that Steam officially supports XP/Vista. If you want to use Steam in 2019 and later, don't forget to make a backup of the steam folder and use the "-noverifyfiles" command to stop Steam from auto-updating itself. You can still download games and etc.. The only thing that might happen is that you can no longer use the store and the friend feature might break soon as well..
  10. Pale Moon 28 b5 works flawlessly on Vista and i can finally update all my addons and add UserScripts, that didn't work on 27. Can't wait for a1
  11. Nope, the x86 build doesn't work as well. I'm glad that this custom version of Pale Moon exist, this means i can stay on Vista and don't have to worry about not compatible updates
  12. You can stop Steam automatic-updates by adding this line (-noverifyfiles) to the Steam shortcut. Just remember to do a full backup of your Steam folder on 31. Dec 2018, so you can keep using the last available version on XP/Vista. You can still login and download games.
  13. Yeah it doesn't work, it says that it isn't a valid Win32 application and asks me to delete the shortcut afterwards.
  14. Pale Moon v28 just got released and unfortunately it doesn't work on Windows Vista. Well that's it.. the only browster that still worked on Vista is now unsupported as well.. I don't want to give up on Vista though, i hope that it's possible to create a custom version of Pale Moon that works on XP/Vista
