  1. I've updated the repository with this month's updates, plus the extra ones mentioned previously by @VistaLover (sorry if I'm not documenting the changes properly, but I'm kinda sick, and did this in a bad state). NEW LINK: https://mega.nz/#F!txxRyLzC!1vBMGzMHiL864f3bl1Rj1w
  2. So you used a x86 driver? Interesting... might give it a shot. Will report back, as usual.
  3. I know how to INF mod. I was asking specifically WHICH drivers did you mod, because I've been testing a load of driver versions to try and get my R9 380 working on Vista, and so far I haven't had any luck
  4. And time for another repository update: Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new one, KB4038799; Replaced the Flash Player update with the new one, KB4038806; Added this month's Security Only update, KB4038786; Replaced Internet Explorer's cumulative update with the new one, KB4036586; Replaced all of the .NET Framework Security and Quality Rollups with the new ones: KB4040971 for .NET 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2 and 4.7; KB4040975 for .NET 4.5.2 and KB4040979 for .NET 3.5; Added this month's .NET Framework Security Only Updates: KB4040955 for .NET 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2 and 4.7; KB4040959 for .NET 4.5.2 and KB4040965 for .NET 3.5; And something extra: Added a new folder insider the Extras, containing new files and info about the installation of .NET Framework 4.7, both on x86 and x64; Cleanup of some files on the Security Only updates folder for x86 I think that's all. Hope you enjoy it https://mega.nz/#F!ExhDEbDA!pUhzXKVp5-hgzvylW_btfQ
  5. Could you elaborate on this? Are there some style files that "unlock" Aero on 8.1 without Aero Glass? I'd like very much to know
  6. Also, I think the newly released Sonic Mania works on Windows Vista... I saw a forum post on Steam of a guy that said he got it working on Vista x64 (take that as you will). I wonder if the game'll run on XP....
  7. An annoying bug I've noticed while browsing some topics is that whenever I change the topic page, it stays on loading and doesn't load anything. I have to manually refresh the page to see it. I'm using Firefox 54.0.1 x64 on Windows 8.1.
  8. Let's celebrate our favourite place on the Internet staying online by updating the repository! (Or donating... I bet the later would help immensely.) Updated IE9 Monthly Update to KB4034733; Added the following August Security Updates: KB4022750, KB4034034, KB4034741, KB4034744, KB4034745, KB4034775, KB4035055, KB4035056, KB4035679 (haven't tested to see if the updates work, would appreciate some feedback) Deleted KB4022887 (superseeded by KB4035055) Added TLS 1.1/1.2 update on the Extras folder; Added D3D Compiler update (it's weird that Microsoft is offering this update for NT 6.0, since it's related to a dependency .NET 4.7 has on Windows 7 and 8.0) Updated Quality Rollups for .NET 2.0, 4.5.2 and 4.6/4.6.1 (KB4014592, KB4024845 and KB4024848, respectively) If there's anything missing, do let me know. https://mega.nz/#F!klBBXC5b!SJSY-VWBto55Ft63CrAgJQ
  9. Since it's now business as usual, I've updated the repository: Updated Monthly Rollup update; Updated Flash Player update; Added this month's Security Only update; Updated IE10 update for the Security Only users; Added a readme file for the Extras folder, to clarify some of the abbreviations used. https://mega.nz/#F!ExhDEbDA!pUhzXKVp5-hgzvylW_btfQ Looking forward to more years of updating in here
  10. I've been doing it the moment I created an account in here. Thanks for everything
  11. Late response, but yes, I do intend on mantaining the repository aslong as I have time and availability.
  12. Of course. My repository is essentially a public service, at this point BTW, it seems @xper has found a way to keep the forums online, which is extraordinary!
  13. And another great website falls, when there's so much crap on the rest of the internet still online... One of the few forums you could talk openly about how bad Windows 10 is, without getting shut down. I really wish there was something I could do to avoid this tragic downfall.
  14. As you probably know, MSFN will be taken offline on the 12th of August.... It saddens me deeply, but we must see where we will meet in the future, to discuss matters related to post-EOL updates for Windows 8.0 and beyond. Got any suggestions, @JodyT?
  15. I game a lot, and the new drivers are always better in terms of features and speed when it comes to games, not to mention support for upcoming titles. The weird thing is that the drivers work on Windows 7 no problem, but on 8.0 they give a watchdog or a security check BSOD...
  16. I wish I could use Windows 8.0, but the new AMD drivers are not compatible (they cause BSOD). Yes, you can slipstream 8 updates by puting them all on a folder (extracted with the .cab) and running DISM on a mounted install.wim.
  17. The updates are language agnostic and yes, I downloaded them directly from Microsoft. (In case you don't really trust me, you can check the SHA1)
  18. Oh right, Windows Phone 8.1 gets continuous support until 2017, gets discontinued and it's immediately a security risk, yet most people carry around Androids with version 4.0 or less and no mention of it.
  19. Updated Updates repository with: June and July security updates for both x86 and x64; Internet Explorer 9 cumulative update (latest); Latest cumulative timezone update (in the Extras folder) A huge thanks to @bbq for keeping the updates in a handy list for download https://mega.nz/#F!klBBXC5b!SJSY-VWBto55Ft63CrAgJQ
  20. Try installing the latest Servicing Stack update. It updates the updating component of the OS: https://mega.nz/#!pwJAUTCC!sqbMYxNOfcissfQAQWMzjrf9_15hBVuKLFbupOif-Vk (from my repository ) Speaking of which: Latest Flash Player update added; Latest IE10 and Security Only updates added (the June and July ones were missing) Latest Monthly Rollup added; Latest timezone update added (in the Extras folder). These changes reflect both the x64 and x86 repositories. https://mega.nz/#F!ExhDEbDA!pUhzXKVp5-hgzvylW_btfQ
  21. You should try extracting the cab file from the update and install it using dism... Might work. (Extract it with 7-Zip or a similar program, and then run the comand: "dism /online /add-package /packagepath:C:\packages\KBXXXXXXX.cab")
  22. Try installing the Monthly Rollup instead: http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/secu/2017/07/windows8-rt-kb4025331-x64_df7d22f1a75b3a2e5f6c8ac9a73f1bcf3b3cdc7e.msu
  23. Shouldn't you limit yourself to games that work on Vista, that supposedly have Windows 7 as a minimum requirement? Seems a bit redundant to put games that state in the system requirements that Vista is OK.
  24. Unfortunately, you don't leave much to the imagination Besides, I like to think I'm saving people from the predator that is Windows 10, by making them GET TO THE CHOPA!!
