    The new ones are VP9 the old ones were VP8 now the old desktop ones are AVC. It would be a big job to convert them all to VP9 but perhaps this may happen. This will be my last post for several days.

    Some good news, Youtube only works with Opera with new videos, my older music videos will not play tried many times. I thought it was odd as before the player said a year ago approx that it was not supported just yet. It is the wbem decoder gstwebmdec.dll streamer file that doesn't work swapped all but webm decoder all is OK. 12.18 2016 gstreamer.dll works for sure. I was sure it was working with the new streamer files before. The other possibility is the most streamed files work. When opening YouTube for me I have to load the first video then click on video on the side line up and then everything is OK auto plays excellently, but soon as I line up an old 2016 video then it I get the TV-snow.

    I think it is worth investigating why you can where I and others can't. You can see what files are loaded with Code Stuff Starter or Process Explorer. Starter needs psapi.dll replaced with KEX one. Process Explorer v10.2 Sysinternals 10.2 here Win9x/ME one at bottom of page. If Opera works then so should other browsers like CometBird9 as I was viewing with full screen. Right click video twice to bring up CometBirds context menu then play video or something like that then show full screen. It does not show context now as the videos will not play. I found Opera worked faster after installing Mozilla so caution I would have a working backup before altering anything. It used to be every time I changed a system file that was in a in the RAM load eg ImageHlp YouTube knew about it and said your browser is no longer supported. Remember when Edge browser first started up it had to go through the Google server to reach YouTube? www.youtube.com did not work unless www.google.com then search for YouTube first time use then worked from then on.

    Dave-H, I can only get the TV snow delivery, it is of good frame rate though mainly due to settings as mentioned here . Your YouTube results might be delicate though in that a system setting change may produce similar results as mine? When you click on a video do you get TV snow at any stage, if not, you can play YouTube videos. This is indeed a major achievement. There is doubt about https://www.howsmyssl.com/ as if you turn off TLS 1.0 then the results are the same. It also suggests TLS 1.2 is the best but doesn't TLS 1.3 continually change the key (I don't really know)? If you push your date of your system back a day with TLS 1.0 unticked then HowIsMySSL web site is unreachable because of the handshaking certificate time differences. Use the drop down to view why showing the details. If you then tick TLS1.0 with the time out a day then the site is reachable again. If I turn off all 128 bit encryptions as they say then their site is unreachable and MSFN does not work properly. Not all data on web pages must have the same encryption I have to have most 128 bit cyphers selected for some sites. When I check MSFN with Opera Info it says I am using TLS v1.2 256 bit AES (2048 bit DHE_RSA/SHA-256) The system key limiter file is not loaded. WinME was quite safe as all ports were closed where as Win2K Pro had many ports open and I had to use Port Blocker to make usable back in the day. The days of dial-up had no router, just modem. Here is a good port checking site. It has Opera green security lock www.grc.com

    In settings; preferences; security; advanced; security protocols; it should be already ticked I think. Desktop version as in the short cut on page 1 move up a level on the web page. Opera mini and mobile are not compatible. Opera mini finished in 2005. Unless you can get the portable version of 12.02 then it will not work I believe. Have to install Opera_1100_int_Setup.msi first, then make sure you choose your directory of choice and tick use as default browser. The setup will baulk at not having ouniansi.dll but it doesn't matter and does not use it. Once installed and established reboot etcetera, then install 12.02 in the same directory/update as 11 but it is important that the default browser is ticked again as it does not work until ticked with 12.02. So custom install here too. Opera_1100_int_Setup.msi was the original setup file I believe and is really 10.63 I think. Install and run 12.02 with KernelEx NT2K settings.

    I did the update before the denial of video playback on YouTube and Opera was working fine but did stop before CometBird so I might be wrong but it would have been the first thing I checked at the time after doing the update? I have written the date YouTube stopped in MSFN somewhere unless I edited out. I think it was November 17. Dav-H could you show the URL address of a video or 2 that works with the 12.02 gstreamer and did you use the original gstreamer.dll or 12.18? I know that flash still works with 12.18 check that gstreamer files are the ones that are used or flash. Speed Dial has to go through for eg redir.opera.com/speeddials/accuweather for place holders other wise the place holder displays the web site that is in an non shrunken state. Once going through redir.opera.com, Speed Dial looks OK but place mat size should be within the border I think, move mouse cursor over place mat to see what I mean. If we look at the latest Opera Speed Dial it just uses icons. Speed Dial is definitely a local page as the place holders have to updated manually or auto timed to update.

    I did not notice a difference with speed dial until you pointed it out. I was not using it. I have SSL3 unticked in security protocols, perhaps the update is not necessary though wikipedia.org/wiki/Transport_Layer_Security says it has ECDSA cert, RC4 disabled, and mitigated FREAK over that of 12.02. The XP install only delivered the reg settings. "html5_entity_init.dat" is the same. GitHub works on 12.02. Mozilla XUL driver is pretty big too and hopefully 12.02 Opera.dll does not inhibit the security settings. Loblo has a point here though and new security settings may not work but I do remember some sites working that didn't before the update a year or so ago (not so sure now but GitHub did stop working for other members too).

    I found out that I copied all files over except keep "html5_entity_init.dat" "c3nform.vxml" "operaprefs_default.ini" and opera.dll. No old additional files were kept except the ones in the Opera root directory. All gstreamer files are new 2016 files. YouTube displays the progress bar preview when mouse is on the bar so it should work if allowed. Opera 12.02 must have had TLS 1.2 as well, in saying that GitHub and other sites work where without 12.18 they don't from what I can recall. I think "html5_entity_init.dat" could be copied from a XP install for example and also the reg settings, will try soon.

    Don't forget https://get.geo.opera.com/pub/opera/win/1218/ copy all files to your Opera 12.02 directory from your %temp% folder except opera.dll, use original opera.dll. This will solve the TLS 1.2 cypher missing problem.

    WPA2 for Windows 9x!

    I think it can work on Win95. www.computerhope.com/download/window95.htm :- Updates Windows 95 to support USB. Requirements: Only for Windows 95 version 4.00.950b and 4.00.950c. toastytech.com/files/w95usbflash11.zip :-USB flash driver I did some checking and mfc42.dll needs IE4 installed that came with Windows 95 OSR 2.5 because wininet.dll is missing some functions otherwise. IE4 updates many system files including advapi32.dll, shell32.dll, rpcrt4.dll, msvcrt.dll and setupapi.dll. These file dates are 18/11/1997 but advapi32.dll does not contain SetSecurityInfo so advapi32.dll, iphlpapi.dll, dhcpsvc.dll, ipcfgdll.dll, msafd.dll, msasn1.dll, ws2_32.dll and ws2help.dll have to be updated from Win98SE to make work. Also requires unicows.dll.

    KernelEx 4.5 Core Updates (4.5.2016.17)

    *\mfc*u*.dll problem occurred after installing core.ini 12th month 2018 vs, the error I found out is not specific to K19 and occurs with K18. I have some other registry errors but not KEX related. Was working just prior to installing core.ini. WinMergeU (NOHEAP) uses mfc90u.dll and I am using a unicode WordPad (NT40) mfc42u.dll. Has anyone got a copy of Drugwash's KernelEx 4.5.2015.3, or know where it is located on MSFN, Drugwash? Xrayer? Jumper? I would like to see if netframework still is OK. Once netframework errors, I found it is impossible to get going again by replacing the files or re-installing. 1-1 drive backup required. My tests need be done again.

    WPA2 for Windows 9x!

    >wouldn't it just make sense to run the 1.1 installer? Well it depends if you want to use the updated drivers or not, some mods are only applicable to later OSs so perhaps are unnecessary. Are you sure that it is mfc42u.dll that is required because mine only uses mfc42.dll which came standard with ME and 98. There is a better MMC than what is provided by the unofficial SP but it is still not fully compatible with the mmc files used in 2K ectcetera. Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Embedded (4.00.1381.204)\winnt40.1381.embedded.x86\CD1\drvlib\EMBEDDED\mmc contains version 1.0 (5.0.1702.1) infoadmn.dll imports from advapi32.dll need to be directed to mssadmws.dll. MMC requires mfc42.dll as well.

    The *\mfc*u*.dll in KEX registry stopped working for me with Core.7z I use the full paths now.

    The action cant be completed...............

    Starter, its OK. In options, interface select show information panel, show startup selection tree, show service groups tree. I should have said Processes tab the next along, Explorer.EXE will be there sort alphabetically by clicking Process tab straight above the list. From what you have shown I would untick the E:\ShellFolderFixULink startup unless you are using it right at the moment. I hope you have manual system restore point placed as it will be dangerous disabling some startup functions. Starter shows user startups see the left tree list. It is safer to just disable these. Sorry missed the processes shot. Explorer should be there unless it is not running. My system shows many more. I know RT7 means a lot to you but having exceptions occurring means that the program is not that compatible or has a memory leak or something the mods are vast. The type column is showing the registry program association used for programs so that you can easily assign file types to startup with a specified program. For example Video Clip could be assigned to WMP.
