  1. Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    That's great to hear. Here's to a few more years of support
  2. Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    I notice there's an x64 update for this. I wonder why I'd need an x64 update for something that's valid only in an x86 environment? How would PAE concerns even come to pass on a 64-bit version of Windows? Aside from fixing the stop error on x86 machines it also fixes security vulnerabilities in the kernel, so it's valid for both CPU architectures.
  3. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    It seems like Microsoft may be wavering after so many releases… The supposed about to be released 1803 version of Windows 10 has a few quirky things about it that I've noticed recently: Microsoft hasn't officially announced a name for the new update - they usually do it one or two months prior to the release. People have been speculating it's the Spring Creator's Update, but oficially, nothing; The supposed RTM has been "demoted" due to some last moment bug: https://www.windowscentral.com/microsoft-demotes-windows-10-redstone-4-build-17133-rtm-status; The anticipated release date on April's Patch Tuesday (the past 10th April) didn't happen (Microsoft also didn't officially confirm the date) Maybe the recently announced restructuring is shaking things up internally… Also, love how articles like this keep getting published every so often, as if Microsoft is justifying something 🤔 http://money.cnn.com/2018/03/29/news/companies/microsoft-restructuring-windows/index.html "Cloud is totally the future, guys! Windows and stable computing are so last decade! We don't need Windows. Trust us! Everything's fine."
  4. Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    Another month, another batch of patches. This time the Security Only update does not include any Spectre/Meltdown fixes AFAIK. Replaced Monthly Rollup update with KB4093123; Replaced Flash Player update with KB4093110; Replaced Internet Explorer 10 cumulative update with KB4092946; Added this month's Security Only update KB4093122; Identified previous month's Security Only update as the one with the Spectre/Meltdown fixes for people who wish to avoid it. Also, it's weird how the Vista repository gets more activity than the 8.0 one, because last month I accidentally posted the x86 flash update on the x64 folder and no one noticed! Oh well, here's to more month's of patching on EOL OSes https://mega.nz/#F!ExhDEbDA!pUhzXKVp5-hgzvylW_btfQ

  6. Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    Oh, right… Forgot to mention. All non-security updates are in the Extras folder. There's a readme.txt there detailing what each update does.
  7. Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    Small repository update right before the April 10 Patch Tuesday... Added previously mentioned update KB4096310 (Didn't add KB4088874 because it was not available on the Catalog as of the time of this writing. Once it appears I'll be adding it) Updated the March Spectre update to v2. This one seems to fix the BSOD some of you guys experienced. See you in a couple of days https://mega.nz/#F!txxRyLzC!1vBMGzMHiL864f3bl1Rj1w
  8. Last versions of software for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008

    Nice. Foxit Reader is a decent PDF viewer IF you disable most of the addons it has enabled by default (or else it tries to run as admin on start everytime and takes a lot of time to actually start).
  9. USB, CD or DVD bootable discs?

    Bootable disks of Windows 10? 8? 7? 98? How old is your PC? What are the specs? Is it a laptop or a desktop? You should explain yourself better
  10. Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    That's what I use when I post the monthly updates in here
  11. Last versions of software for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008

    BTW, @WinClient5270, could you also add the Rx 300 series as unofficially compatible with Windows Vista? (with the modded INF files I provide)
  12. But is it at least compatible with 8.1? That could be our last hope for a sane supported Windows OS.
  13. Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    The updates are marked as Spectre and Meltdown fixes, so people will know if they want to avoid them or not.
  14. Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    New update spotted on askwoody's KBNew: KB4088874 - CPU usage at 100% when you move files in Windows Server 2008 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4088874 http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/search.aspx?q=4088874 Seems to be a fix for a bug introduced in KB4041995 (October 2017 update)... Should I add it to the repository?
  15. Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    Yeah... Unlike the error messages from Windows 7+, where it clearly says the update is already installed on the computer, in Vista it just says that the update is not applicable on your PC... A bit more annoying, but manageable.
