    Yes, it is. Sorry to be late, I have not worked much at this project in these few months because of busy life, but from next week I will work on it again.


    Here is a screenshot of working basilisk from roytam (released yesterday). The graphic is really buggy as you can see, I need to work on it... But at least, it starts... I'm trying to get also chrome to work. I'm evaluating to use user32 and gdi32 and win32k from the first betas of nt5.0 because they have all the updated functions to display text, styles correctly, but it seems that we need to use also the ntoskrnl from that beta because the the old ntoskrnl from nt 4.0 is too old, and here is a question for you users... Do you mind if we use the new ntoskrnl.exe from a earlier beta of nt 5.0? I ask you this because I want your opinion about this. If you say no, I will keep working with the nt 4.0's ones, but it will takes some more time.

    I think it's better to leave original ntoskrnl.exe from NT 4.0. I'm afraid that taking libraries from NT 5.0 betas would also bring many bugs and instability. Could you describe how will it work, please? Maybe I do not understand something.

    P.S. Will it be possible to use latest security updates with your wrapper?

    It  is correct behavior.

    Setup.exe overwrite disable option, but it can not re-enabled it.

    So you should prepare backuped kernel32.dll with re-install.

    Extended kernel's update.cab includes kernel32.dll, so installer extracts from it  when it is reinstalled :3

    Ok, I've understood. How can I repack update.cab and inject it into .exe?

    It seems not to have problem.

    How about do you compare kernel32 file before and after setup.exe patches to kernel32.dll with some options ?

    Is installed kernel32 version 5.0.2195.7272 in system32 ?


    Does kernel32 patching depend on any other system DLLs (or components?) Is there a way to get any logs from setup program in order to see what does it actually do?

    UPD. When I install the package first time everything seem OK (FileZilla works). But if I need to change some options after that, I have to re-download the Extended Kernel (some of selections are just ignored)...

    Umm, What does it mean "I've lost ability to manage disabled Vista functions (cannot enable them)." ?

    For example, I unselect "Disable InitializeCondition functions" and install Extended Kernel. After reboot I still get "InitializeConditionVariable" not found in kernel32.dll (no effect). Such things do not happen on original English version.

    Which kernel32.dll file did you use ?

    Extended kernel sequence is the following way.

    * extract %temp%\IXP****.TMP

    * setup.exe patches to kernel32.dll with some options.

    * update.exe installs to system32.

    You should patch it before setup.exe complete with options.


    Look, please. I've replaced text resources in Kernel32, changed its base address and recalculated checksum (after some localization-related hex edits)

  6. Hello, I'm trying to translate latest 2.9 release to Russian language. I'am facing two problems:

     - almost all the apps using VC++ or MFC refuse to work properly until I install Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable package (even if it was not required in the clean system). It that OK?

     - when I'm running Extended Kernel setup program it gives some messages about pattern mismatch (?) but completes successfully. After reboot shell open/save dialogs are broken until I replace comdlg32.dll with original one or copy from Extended Kernel package (does that DLL somehow get corrupted in the process of installation?) (my fault)

  7. Hello, I would like to make an lightweight IE 6.0 add-on (to integrate it into Windows NT 4.0 distribution). I was very surprised, when I did not found any information about that. As the result I even do not have any example of such add-on. Full IE 6.0 distribution is so big and definitely not suitable for such purposes. Help me, please. I have only found references to OnePiece IE 6.0 SP1 add-on, but all the links are offline. I really need something like IE 6.0 core to make NT support more applications.
