  1. Which is surprising, considering how spread XP is in China... By the way, since you're testing the Chinese version, I know you malware-scanned it and it was fine, but can you also check if it's opening a connection to some dodgy Chinese server when you're using it? If it's not, then it's probably gonna be safe, but, you know, I wanna be really sure before I install anything from China on my computer.
  2. Well, that's good to know! On a side note, I just noticed that you've become a moderator, so congratulations for the promotion, Dave!

    Ehehe we can't link the binaries here otherwise we'll all get banned (that's why you don't find much about it on MSFN). However a little bird told me that you can find Samuel, Dibya, Peter, Henry and many other developers like a certain guy called "FranceBB" (along with MSFN users) working on One Core API, Chromium (no we're not there yet), Intel HD Audio Drivers and other XP projects in this Skype Group: https://join.skype.com/kkCmZhCwjegP xD
  4. If it's the very same socket and the CPU ain't soldered, then I don't see why not? I've never owned such a computer, but I've upgraded CPUs many times in different computers, it's very easy. As long as it's the same socket and the BIOS/UEFI is compatible (i.e the CPU is listed in the support list of the motherboard) and you have enough Watts available from the Power Supply, then it's very easy. You just need to buy a thermal compound to apply on the "new" CPU and you're good to go! Just one thing: each CPU comes with pins that are really fragile, so be careful when mounting the new CPU.
  5. Yep. I have Avast Premier on XP with everything turned on and I still get streaming updates. It's a bit sad that there are no longer program updates and that the very latest version supported by XP is a bit buggy on some systems, but on the other hand, we couldn't expect it to work forever. Honestly, though, the biggest change that broke XP compatibility was going from x86 to x64. If the AV remained x86, then there wouldn't have been any problems as pretty much everything was already XP compatible and there could just have been parts disabled on some OS, but when there was a mass rebuild and s
  6. Yeah, probably the last one before the inevitable death... It's been a long run... It will forever be remembered... So, as a recap: OS updates are over, Silverlight is over, Flash is now over and Java is living on borrowed time with unofficial version made with a Frankenstein approach that could break any moment. At this rate, we won't have any reason to come here and comment anymore, which was one of the few things we had left in terms of updates...
  7. And of course if we're gonna ask them in the user forum they're gonna deny again and remove it without any explanation... Out of curiosity, I just searched in the Catalog, and it just shows Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012, Windows Embedded 8 Standard, Windows 8 Embedded but no sign of POSReady 2009... https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4519108 I'm still waiting for the time a Premier Support Update will slip to the catalog so that we can download and apply it... Oh well, I know it's pr
  8. Just out of curiosity: I've never used the Windows Update Mini Tool, but I wanted to give it a shot. I downloaded it from Majorgeeks but as I opened it, it said "Interface not supported". Are you all using an older, XP-Compatible version?
  9. You're using... what? xD For a custom-made skin, it very much looks as if someone just took the Windows Embedded POSReady theme, changed the desktop background and called it a day! hahahahaha
  10. You can use the original thing provided that you run it via Python, so it's compiled at run time. The exe by Heinoganda is compiled at compilation time and is more compatible with other CPUs than the built-in Python runtime dll
  11. +1 for ProxHTTPSProxyMii by @heinoganda I've been using it for years now and it works just fine. Besides, you can also decide which websites are gonna be bypassed so that the certificate provided is the real certificate provided by the server, so it solves pretty much every problem. The only thing is that it doesn't support TLS1.3 (yet), but it works just fine for TLS1.2 with ECC certificates.
  12. Yep! Thank you, for those updates! I mean, I'm probably never gonna use them anyway, but it's nice to have XP updated.
  13. Does it have the added nag as well? (I'm talking about the white box meant for ads popping up on the bottom right corner).
  14. +1 for Anydesk. I've been using it for 2 years now (ever since Team Viewer began behaving not-so-nicely on XP) and it's indeed a good replacement.
