  1. 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
  2. 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

    Steam for XP in 2019?

    You can stop Steam automatic-updates by adding this line (-noverifyfiles) to the Steam shortcut. Just remember to do a fall 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.
  4. Yeah it doesn't work, it says that it isn't a valid Win32 application and asks me to delete the shortcut afterwards.
  5. 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
  6. If you're still using Windows Vista (like me) and would like to play games with the XBOX One Controller, then you're pretty much out of luck.. Right? No! You can actually install the Windows 7+ XBOX One Controller driver on Windows Vista without modifying anything. You just need to extract the .MSI installer and install the driver via Device-Manager. But you don't need to do all this since i already uploaded it for you.. DOWNLOAD DRIVERS Have fun!

    Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    Windows 7 has larger titlebar buttons, the taskbar (superbar) was especially redone for touchscreens and some other new touchscreen programs were added. I mean it wasn't drastically forced to everyone like they did in Windows 8, since the taskbar also had advantages for keyboard mouse users, but you could see what Microsoft wanted to achieve with future releases of Windows.

    Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    I'm amazed that Microsoft is still developing Metro Apps. Do people really use this crap? I mean just look at the Settings app, it's cluttered as hell and it's really frustating to use. Windows Phone is finally dead and people use Win32 apps on tablets. Windows Vista really is the last OS from Microsoft which had Desktop PC's in mind. I'm using Windows 10 right now, because.. i don't know.. and the only way to make it usable is to install StartIsBack (to have the Win7 start menu and taskbar) and Aero Glass for making Windows look normal again.

    Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.5.3

    Is CaptionHeight broken in AeroGlass for 1703? The button size just stays the same.

    Nvidia Pascal Graphics Card Issue

    Okay that's really weird. I'm also using the modified drivers (GTX 970) and everything is fine so far, except that it breaks direct2D font rendering in Pale Moon x64, but that's ok, i'm using the recommended x32 version anyway.

    Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    Awesome! Now i can start creating monthly Vista isos that have the Server updates integrated.
  12. Nope, it says that it's not a valid Win32 application.
  13. Yeah i hope that the Server 2008 Security updates will work on Vista. I have a Server 2008 Standard key and i already used it as a Workstation, but some programs like Steam have problems with the builtin Web Browser which constantly shows the "..stopped working" error.

    Nvidia GTX 1060 inf modding for vista?

    Great, the drivers also work with the GTX 960. The last driver for vista is 365.19 which is so out of date, that some games even reject to start.

    Windows Vista SP1/SP2 UEFI

    UEFI works just fine, it just doesn't support the video card integration, so CSM still needs to be enabled.
