  1. Oh crud...WPS Office no longer works on Windows XP!
  2. Testing a bunch of software on Windows 2000. The last version of Wise Program Uninstaller is 1.91.99. Later versions appear to exit with a missing dll error. The current version does not work at all!
  3. Hey MSFN! I'm trying to get back into retro computing and Windows ME was giving me problems on my Precision M70, so I'm doing Windows 2000 on my Dell at the moment. It's such a great, solid OS that only needs some new software to keep up with its younger siblings! As the title says, what are the media players you would use on a vanilla Windows 2000 installation? I can't find information on the last version of KMPlayer, PotPlayer, MP-HC, etc. for Windows 2000. All help is appreciated! Also, I wonder if it's possible to get this little media player working on Windows 2000; it's still Qt4-based, but does not launch on Windows 2000. https://sourceforge.net/projects/apprenticevideo/files/ Slightly off topic, but is there also a way I could modify Windows 2000 just like Windows 9x's Revolutions Pack?
  4. What do I exactly need to do with BWC's drivers? I extracted the .cab and tried to integrate with nlite, but the inf file does not appear to work once the file is created? Is there any bootable usb creator you could recommend as well? Rufus, WinUSBtoBoot, and ISO to USB aren't working for me. I used to just burn CD's and install that way, but my main PC's CD drive is broken.
  5. Hello, I am trying to install Windows 2000 fresh with an SATA driver. I obtained one of BWC's drivers and found NLite did not appear to accept the driver? I tried extracting the .cab file and using both single driver and multiple driver folder, but neither appear to be effective. I need a bit of help with SATA drivers on Windows 2000. Should I use the universal ATA driver, BWC's, or Fernando's? Thank you for your time!
  6. Hello, Installing the unofficial Windows Media Player 10 for Windows 9x ended up breaking my Windows ME installation, so I am wondering if it is possible to simply run rloew's ram patch through a live boot of FreeDOS (if there is one) or something similar. I am hoping I do not have to get my hands dirty opening the laptop to remove a stick of ram. Also, I do not have a floppy disk and my laptop does not appear to have a slot either. Thank you for your time
  7. This is a very interesting concept. You mean something like VMWare Client Login (vmware horizon client)? In theory some sort of streaming Windows 10 might be possible to NT 4.0. I am trying to recall the title of one youtube video that ran Windows XP a very ancient machine, then streamed Windows 7 to the machine. But, NT 4.0 computers are gonna be very slow if they can achieve this.
  8. So far... **BBFrance has attempted to backport Chromium 74 at least five times and the thing failed to work. **Obtaining the tools to even compile earlier versions of Chrome were very difficult. Though thanks to him, it's easier now. **Backporting Chromium 76 to Windows XP has been very difficult due to many new things dependent on Windows 7 or later API. **The Advanced Chromium Developer once released a Chromium 69 version for XP (link is dead), but had to remove hardware acceleration and web assembly. Apparently, a DirectX version included was too new for XP. **DoaJC_Blogger is still working on fixing the biggest issue: removal of GDI write. Chromium now uses DirectWrite 1.1, which requires Windows 7 or later. Vista uses 1.0. You can join his discord here. The main goal of porting Chromium to XP is so our data is not sent back to China. It would be somewhat annoying to have to dual-boot with Linux or Windows 7 or later, just to browse the web.
  9. Thank your time man. We all appreciate your efforts to achieve something so difficult Do these issues have anything to do with GDI's removal in versions of Chrome later than 52? DoaJC_Blogger seems close to on this issue, but appears to just require restoration of GDI because Chromium requires DirectWrite 1.1. Maybe in theory, his version could have DirectWrite downgraded to 1.0 (Vista's version)? EDIT: WHOOPS! I did NOT see the post was from last year!
  10. Which version? I recall Torch dropped XP/Vista support a while back. Also, there is the one-core-api project for XP for KernelEx

  12. My laptop is considered "higher-end" in Windows 9x standards, but is extremely weak in modern standards. ATI Radeon 9000 Mobile (32MB???) 1 gb SDRam
  13. That is my site. However, you'll need to talk to DoaJC_Blogger because it's his project. Unfortunately, I do not believe we can make Chromium compatible with a Vanilla Windows 2000. The main issue I believe is the tools used for Chrome work for Windows XP or later (the archived one DoaJC_Blogger uses). The main issue he is attempting to solve is restoring GDI write to Chromium. I advise using the Chrome 69 version of 360 Browser because later Chinese browsers might be too new to even work on Windows 2000 w/ KernelEx at that point.
  14. I believe I tested version 1.5. I do not recall if 2.0 works on Windows ME. 99.9% of the time, I test Windows 9x with a physical laptop. Both use Pentium M 7xx's. I just find virtualization too buggy and slow.
