  1. There's also Paint.NET that requires .NET Framework 4.7.2. Anyone can test that program
  2. Has anyone tried the final .NET Framework 4.8 release? I don't have a Vista VM at hand right now. https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/dotnet-framework/net48
  3. If you would've told a costumer from 2001 that their purchase of Windows XP would get updates until 2019 they would not believe you! Yet, here we are with a new patch out of the regular POSReady 2009 support window
  4. That would be the dream... I also undertook recently an effort to preserve PT-PT updates, and while I got some luck with some of the updates released in the early 2000s until 2004, after that they started hosting every new update in that URL format you've posted, making it almost impossible to retrieve them. At the absolute limit, one knowing the filename would run a random character generator to try and find the correct URL, but that would be extremely time consuming.
  5. Just noticed this post. I'll give the script a try and I'll report back. If everything works fine, I'll try and include it with my Server 2008 and Server 2012 update repository. Thanks for sharing this and welcome to MSFN! Hope you have a great time here
  6. Actually, I've already created an ISO file containing updates for 2000, XP, Server 2K3 and Vista. The ISO also includes Windows Live Essentials 2009 (XP compatible) and 2010 (Vista compatible). The problem is that updates for NT 5.x are language specific, so I only accumulated PT-PT updates. If there's any interest in releasing that to the public do let me know. (I also managed to salvage some PT-PT updates and hotfixes for Windows ME and 98 before they closed down the hotfix service.)
  7. From a fellow Portuguese countryman to another I say: "Bem vindo!".
  8. The IE11 install is offered as a regular Windows Update. In order to modify it we would need to resign the modified .mum files so that Windows 8.0 would be contemplated in them. This, unfortunately, requires access to Microsoft's tools to do so, something we just don't have at our disposal.
  9. Unfortunately, it's impossible to install IE11 on regular 8.0, since they only included Server 2012 and Embedded 8 Standard on the update files description, regardless of pre-requisite updates. Abbodi1406 also confirmed this in MDL (and he was the one that got Powershell 5.1 to install on Windows 8.0).
  10. The Easter bunny hasn't forgotten about our favorite NT 6.2 OS: Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4493451 (located on the root directory of the repository) Replaced Flash Player Security update with KB4493478 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added Security Only Updates, KB4489884 and KB4493450 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post September 2016)") Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4493435 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post September 2016)") Added .NET Framework September Security Only Updates: -KB4488660
  11. Happy Easter, everybody! I am the Easter bunny bringing my Easter eggs: Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4493471 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added a new Servicing Stack update KB4493730 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added Security Only Updates, KB4489876 and KB4493458 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4493435 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Added .NET Updates: -KB4488661 for .NET 2.0 SP2 (located in "/NET 2.0
  12. They are porting Chromium to ARM64 so it'll work with Windows 10 on ARM. Recompiling that to ARM32 would require some knowledge of the instruction set, I'd speculate: https://www.neowin.net/news/microsoft-and-google-are-working-together-to-bring-chrome-to-windows-on-arm Firefox also works on ARM64 with the latest dev versions: https://www.windowscentral.com/mozilla-releases-first-nightly-build-firefox-windows-10-arm
  13. My apologies. When I needed to download a hotfix I usually used that link and it redirected to the EULA page. Seems like Microsoft closed that loophole...
  14. Actually, it hasn't been shutdown. Just buried. Use this URL: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hotfix/kbhotfix?kbnum=2990184&kbln=en-us&forceorigin=esmc Accept the EULA and it will redirect you to the KB4343220 page. No worries. Just click the URL again and you'll be in the hotfix download page. Then change the URL to the update KB you want to download Are there any others? I intend on making a compilation of POSReady patches in PT-PT language.
  15. Should also work for newer Ryzen's, seeing you can use the same chipset (in my case B350) with the same functioning drivers. The only thing that's incompatible are the GPU drivers for the Ryzen APUs, since the last AMD GPU drivers compatible with Vista were released in mid-2015.
  16. You can already use the Windows 10 version they're offering to install on any (supported) Windows version you want. Just find a way to download the installer.
  17. Looks can be deceiving, my friend. Just because the embedded PkgProperties on the MSU file says that doesn't mean the update.mum inside the CAB file does Just to prove my point I went ahead and installed Windows 8.0 Enterprise on VMWare to test installing the latest .NET Framework 4.8 preview update (build 3745). If you try to install it normally from the executable, it will fail with an unsupported OS message, as you'd expect: So I basically extracted the CAB files relating to 8.0 from the executable and installed them through Dism: And it seemed to go over just fine. Mayb
  18. If they do release an ARM version of Edge, it will probably be ARM64 because of the whole Windows 10 on ARM effort they've recently been pushing. AFAIK Windows 8.x RT was made for ARM32.
  19. OK, so from what I've gathered, you managed to mod the nVidia RTX drivers to work on Vista? Have you tested them? Do you have screenshots proving the mod works? Just posting a bunch of files in the wrong section of the forum (this could've been posted in the Windows Vista category) without any kind of description doesn't help people understand why this was posted.
  20. And here is the repository update for Windows 8.0 for January and February 2019: Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4487025 (located on the root directory of the repository) Replaced Flash Player Security update with KB4487038 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added Security Only Updates, KB4480972 and KB4486993 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post September 2016)") Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4486474 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post September 2016)") Replaced .NET Framework Security and Quality with:
  21. Ok, I've had time to update the repository with the January and February updates. Just in time, before Microsoft unleash the March ones. Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4487023 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added Security Only Updates, KB4480957 and KB4487019 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4486474 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Replaced .NET Framework Security and Quality with: -KB4483457 for .NET 2.0 SP2 (located in "/NET 2.0 SP2/S
  22. Wow, I made that post quite a while ago... Yes, I've already figured it out regarding POSReady 7. Both Windows Thin PC and POSReady 7 are derived from Embedded Standard 7, meaning all of the OS is componetized. Updates made only for those specific variants of NT 6.1 don't work on regular W7 but, luckily for us, MS tries to make its job easier and Monthly Rollups are universal for all NT 6.1 variants. Considering they will be selling Extended Support until 2023, I doubt they will start making a distinction between those 2 product lines.
  23. Do you have a plan, budget, milestones and deadlines for such a project? I'm sorry, but you just register into a forum and the first thing you do is ask for people to make a program for you? What did you expect?
  24. So, this solution would be limited to what is archived in archive.org. That is kind of a limitation for everyone except EN-US systems. I recently tried and compile Windows 95 updates in PT-PT, and most (if not all) of the links I found were dead or not archived.
  25. Wow, this is excellent news for Windows 8.0 users! The last Internet Explorer upgrade Microsoft will ever release for a Windows platform. Feels like a historic moment.
