  1. Train station in Łódź, Poland. sent by a friend.
  2. Uh, more like a week and a half :> Unless board, after updates, pops up his edit as a totally new post. I only see 3.09.2017 on my machine...
  3. @Roffen - Check on the internet if your Motehrboard's built-in audio card has drivers for XP. If the MoBo model is new, it's rather unlikely. And, my personal humble request - start new topic for requests like this one, and keep this topic related to POSReady update issues :>
  4. jaclaz - thanks for linking the topic. As far as I get it, there will be no noticeable advantage of ReFS over NTFS for average PC user... or even wanna-be-geeky user, who doesn't plan to store Terabytes of data?
  5. Depends on national law. Here in Poland it is 100% legal, you are the same able and allowed to copy YT playback as you were able to record something from radio/TV into Mc/VCR. If the content was posted by someone who's not allowed to distribute it... well, law enforcement is upon him, not you. Not to mention that 90% of music on YT was posted without any respect to copyright. It's fun to see upon what corporations are building their empires... :> And, actually, such services are rather common. Can't name any of them cause I didn't pay attention when I stumbled upon them, but they exist.
  6. Not to dig deep into the details, but in general I appreciate the idea. MSFN is one of the best places for the maniacs of old Windows software and systems, and up to my humble opinion, such section might gather an interest of some new maniacs :>
  7. Because PC knows that this is the highest supported by the display. Well, depending on the standard that is implemented in your hardware, your split VGA might or might not be able to support two screens at that resolution - won't be able to send 2560x2048 pixels sixty times per second. I'm to little experienced to find out whether your card will do. At worst you will not get the output required. If none of the previous will work, you might. But prepare for a bit of web searching. It's possible to get a nice card from dismembered business PC at a bargain price. But first, uh, experiment.
  8. Depending on what is the maximum resolution your built-in can provide, and what is these monitors resolution. Take a try, they should not burn, at worst screens won't display properly. Check if here are Windows 10 drivers for this Radeon. I doubt, but there might be. You might also play around with different drivers for win 7/8/8.1 or some generic from AMD. Make a system restore or full disc backup before playing with these. That might not be the best solution, but that's what I would do. This card should work with windows 7, it's not new enough to be incompatible.
  9. You meant 'has no dedicated graphics card', or 'has integrated graphics card' :> Tech specs are saying this computer has two Display Port sockets and a VGA. So, actually, you should... :> Depending on your monitors and the inputs they have. This 'bitage', that is commonly used while describing OSes and processors, cannot be referred to graphic cards 1:1 when building a PC from parts. Not to mention that this '32' or '64' bits in modern CPU's does not describe every part of this device, and, as far as I remember, nowadays it refers to the size of address bus. Which not always has been like this, since good old 8-bit NES had 16-bit address bus :>
  10. Yep. And unless it's some big infographic, it can look 'well enough' resolution even with high compression. And if it's an infographic... why don't use vector format instead? :>
  11. Adblock and ublock allow to whitelist everything for MSFN and add custom rule for green banner :>
  12. For me, text is at least 'legible' but font selection at the top bar on the new board is horrible. The text is much smaller that it was, and it appears to be badly blurred. It seems to be ok when I zoom in my browser, so I guess enlarging the font by 2 or 4px would do a difference. Windows 7 and newest Firefox here.
  13. Confirmed on my machine. full update in <2 hours.
  14. There was no web browser in 89. See here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_browser
  15. Not to discourage Sequoiaview (which I have never used), but it doesn't seem like a program with very intuitive GUI. Personally I use Treesize Free, which seems to be much easier to use for the first time. http://www.jam-software.com/treesize_free/ But If you feel comforted with Sequoia, don't bother, since they seem to do similar job. Just posting an alternative.
  16. Seems like a way to spend another workless day at work
  17. And, to be honest, I also sometimes do. Including fact, that I still have my very first PC, 56K dial-up modem packed somewhere, protocol is still supported by polish provider and the fact that there are still some BBSes over there ran by the passionates, it's sometimes tempting to run this time machine and feel at least the scraps of the spirit of the times.
  18. I've been interested in military since childhood days, and this matches what I've read years ago in polish 'Nowa Technika Wojskowa' monthly magazine. And no, no chances I'll be able to find THE article once again in reasonable time :> They simply wrote that, while making military contract, you never look for newest, just dispatched IT technology, and its infancy bugs are not the deal - in fact these things are loosing they price shortly after release, and due to the length of military contracts all the procedures, production and implementation are so lengthy, that whatever you do, technology IS obsolete when being dispatched. So why to overpay :>
  19. Ain't it be a problem for some that kb3118304 have many language-dependent installers? Should we inform them that they misinformed masses in their blog?
  20. I'm glad to inform that you are right, and after manually installing Office 2007 patches scan for new updates went smoothly and they installed flawlessly. I'm also glad to inform that after recent updates, Avast! will most likely stop troubling your updates. Besides, I'm not sure how Compatibility Pack 2007 patches should apply to Office 2007. I've downloaded all of them listed by Bersalgio, and KB3191828, KB3203436 and KB3203438 got installed. KB3127894 thrown error that there is no program installed that it should apply to. Microsoft on their blog (link below) shows KB3203438 and KB3127894 as applicable for office 2007, so i understand nothing...
  21. @Bersaglio did a good list, that lacks items I needed the most - For office 2007. So i did, and you have files listed below. I couldn't find such elegant links for executables, so I provide links to cab packages from windows update with exception to one that has many language versions - there you have catalog list. Keep in mind that all files are not necessary - you don't need update for Outlook 2007 if you have home version of Office. http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/secu/2017/06/usp10-x-none_c40622c2ad28b969494669576cb709fd465e0970.cab KB3191837 Office 2007 http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/secu/2017/06/word-x-none_e3617c5534b1f74f177c9f3babe85ca7049864b4.cab KB3203441 Word 2007 http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/secu/2017/06/mso-x-none_91008015358f13ca21c9fb565196092cbbc289f2.cab KB3203436 Office 2007 http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/secu/2017/06/powerpoint-x-none_b52bee6af81ba748908e91257b1b7e7efebe8f42.cab KB3127888 PowerPoint 2007 http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB3118304 KB3118304 Office 2007 Many language versions-choose yours http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/secu/2017/06/outlook-x-none_9074b332e588526264deb590fd6f9f90f6f5b5ed.cab KB3191898 Outlook 2007 http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/secu/2017/05/ogl-x-none_f5a7344d79b930abdebcd8b9ca47978fb83d94cf.cab KB3191828 Office 2007 Hope I made no mistake :>
  22. WMF 4 updates to Powershell 4 WMF 5 Updates to Powershell 5 While your old cmdlets will get updated to their newest standard, keep in mind that some newer cmdlets require system elements of Windows 8, 8.1 or 10 in order to be run and won't be visible. as about WMF 5.1, all your questions are resolved below: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/wmf/5.1/release-notes So it seems it's enough to install WMF 5.1 over WMF 4.0 OR WMF 5.0. Not both.
  23. Well, if you -have the registry set up, as described in the first post. -have the MSI 4.5 installed (and I think you've said you have) -Have the updated Internet explorer (And i remember You've been receiving the updates until they suddenly stop working) Then, well, that's all I ever did myself. The only thing I can recommend then is to go back to system restore point prior to the problem (keep in mind that if the problem started long ago, this is rather a bad advice). I keep my XP updated, because I'm a paranoid and it's used by my relatives, that are not geeky, so I want these security updates. However, for most people being hidden behind well-configured router and following basic security rules (do not open suspicious e-mail and attachments, do not install untrusted things, use strong passwords etc.) should be enough to survive. Keep in mind that it's been more than 3 years since XP lost official support, and we had seen no big attack targeting XP users. WannaCry was a medial issue, but this is a case when home networks shouldn't be even vulnerable. So, If you backtrack all the possible failure points and still nothing helps, no updates are coming, don't rush for reinstallation or Windows 10. Many machines are running XP with no Unofficial service pack 4 and keeping fine
  24. Can't say about UDF, but exFAT should be suitable solution, if what you ned from NTFS is capability to store big files. exFAT drivers should be installed for every Windows from XP up, and installing them on Linux should not be a big deal :>
