  1. Right, I forgot about that. Extracting files with 7-Zip should work for vanilla Windows 98 SE. There is folder Win95 inside with the driver, so you can just point the device manager to it and install it that way. While VirtualBox may not be perfect, it may work fine for a particular purpose. Just have to try and see. Also check out this thread. The trick mentioned there can help getting SciTech Display Doctor to work, if this is the display driver you'd like to use in virtual machine instead of VBEMP 9x. Otherwise, depending on your CPU, it may crash with general protection fault at startup after the driver is installed. One of those quirks with VirtualBox not being the most suitable for Windows 9x. Maybe it also has an effect on some other piece of software.
  2. Last time I played with VirtualBox and Windows 98 SE, the AC97 driver for Windows 95 worked. You can get it from here. Is it the one you tried already, with VXD_406 in its name?
  3. Read the whole thread and you might find out the reason.
  4. You need to wait for the new Aero Glass version that will be compatible with April update. For now, there's only experimental debug version, which requires manual installation. With Aero Glass GUI. You don't ever have to run aerohost.exe by yourself, it can only be executed by the system with the help of Task Scheduler. The only requirement is that you have the compatible version of Aero Glass installed. PS: Always create a new thread about Aero Glass in a dedicated Aero Glass sub-forum, not just to keep the forum organized, but your thread will also get more attention there. @Tripredacus Another thread to move.
  5. Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    They broke something else this time: https://filezilla-project.org/

    Putting said 64-bit DLL in SysWOW64 will only crash 32-bit applications that invoke default file open/save file dialog. SysWOW64 is for 32-bit binaries. WOW64 stands for Windows 32-bit On Windows 64-bit.
  7. Is it possible to have black text on taskbar popups?

    Yes, "Vista Style Builder" = "Windows Style Builder". The old name is still used on its official website. While Windows 10 is not officially supported, it is possible to use it to work with most Windows 10 themes. There were also some updated files released (unofficially) for the program that gives it ability to recognize more Windows 10 specific theme elements. Modifying themes does require to have system patched to accept 3rd party themes. In the old days, ability to tweak colors and fonts would be exposed through control panel and not require users to jump through hoops, but that's modern Windows for ya. I suppose, theoretically, it would be possible to implement the option in StartIsBack, but one would have to find where the setting is read and intercept it.
  8. I thought watermark was actually removed in recent builds until I tried single-monitor configuration. But activating the second monitor (extended mode) makes it disappear.
  9. The only thing you can do is login here and generate new donation key from machine ID Aero Glass gives you. You can also deactivate the old key, which is apparently of no use. Machine ID is generated from your specific computer hardware combination and only changes if you replace certain components.
  10. No clue what's going on your end. I did mess a bit with the current stable Windows 10 build and was unable to keep Windows (Defender) Firewall off permanently. Some unknown event just turns it back on.
  11. The memory usage goes up with each desktop background change on my end.
  12. Plus the debug builds of Aero Glass tend to gobble memory until strange things start to happen. My monitors just went to standby at one point. Pressing Win+Ctrl+Shift+B finally crashed DWM, releasing memory and bringing monitors back to life.
  13. @Tripredacus, you might want to move this to Aero Glass forum. Also noticed 2 other AG related threads (this one and this one). Regarding the problem at hand, I believe @bigmusclehas some diagnostic utility for issues with donation keys.
  14. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    The watermark on the desktop showing version if you enable it does show 1804, though it is referenced as 1803 on Microsoft's websites.
  15. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    In other news, ReactOS keeps improving. Another project interesting for gamers, DXVK, Vulkan-based Direct3D 11 implementation. The desire to break free from Microsoft's chains seems stronger than ever.
