  1. 9AM redmond time and I'm playing checkers still. I Guess they forgot. :)
  2. M$ must have meant the end of the day... checkers is still going strong (10:16PM...7:16PM in Redmond)
  3. 1:33AM here, 10:33PM in Redmond, I may have just played my last checkers game... it all depends WHEN on 31 july MS shuts it down, if i get to play again when i wake up. ...if they even remember to.
  4. i would suggest you find and contact the original author. Unfortunately i cannot remember who that is at the moment. I have nothing to do with that modification.
  5. What i mean is that it WAS an issue in previous versions and NOW it's fixed. I am very well aware of how the k-meleon profiles differ from the other browsers at this point.
  6. Along with the typical configuration neccesary to allow updating to the lastest builds for users of my Browser Installer, I am pleased to present version 1.2 of my installer! Change Log: -Updated information section to talk about more things -Added reminder of your architecture (x86 vs x64) to choice screens with 32 and 64 bit builds -Added CPU info screen to info section - The installer now contacts my new domain (i430vx.net) for the builds list, not that this matters because the old one will remain connected (I tried to fix the problem of it not erroring out without an internet connection, it didn't work, will fix next time) -I cant remember exactly when i fixed this, but its worth mentioning that K-Meleon profiles will no longer be nuked into oblivion by my installer. As always, inform me of any features you want or bugs you find. (I see a small formatting issue with the cpu reminder, it'll be fixed for the next version ) Download the installer from it's usual place: http://i430vx.net/files/XP/RoyTam Browser Installer.exe A strange bug happened when i copied the installer over to my server tonight. The server seems to beleive that the installer is dated from The Beginning of time! Thankfully the file being dated as 49 years old does not seem to adversely affect anything.
  7. Yeah, I don't see Windows Millennium Edition Reporting that it has DirectX 11 installed everyday!
  8. "*For some reason, the update check doesn’t seem to fail if you aren’t connected to the Internet and creates the Program Files folders and shortcuts with no content anyway. I forgot to plug in the network cable and kept thinking something was wrong lol... " Fixed. "* On Vista x64 the browser installs to Program Files (x86) even when choosing the 64-bit builds for some reason. " Fixed. "* Perhaps add a way to “update” the browser and register it as a default browser with OS file associations if the user chooses to do so. " Well, the installer is already capable of updating old versions to a newer one, presuming you installed the old version with it. The browsers are capable of setting file associations themselves, they usually nag you about it on the first run, if not you can set it in their settings dialog. "* (Not sure how this would be done) Check whether the system is 32-bit/64-bit and has SSE or SSE2 first and adjust the options presented accordingly (maybe add a flag if running the exe from the command line that can disable the check in case someone is downloading for another system or something). " I already have code to check if the system is 64 bit or not, so I can display that, I'm not sure how to "look for" SSE and SSE2. I'm not going to prohibit installing the wrong builds for the system architecture though, someone may have a reason for wanting to do so. "* Add an install path option that either installs to %AppData% directory or %ProgramFiles% directories, or allow a custom specification of where it goes. " Maybe at another time, that would be a lot of work to the code (well, more than I have time to do today) The fixes and features I've mentioned adding here (except for the last one) Will be published tonight, probably around the time RoyTam1 publishes his new browser builds.
  9. i430VX

    lol no

    What about... yes?
  10. As typical my installer will install the latest of roy's builds, and I would like to add that I'm about half done with another version of the installer with some features people have requested. Stay tuned!
  11. Sorry for the delay, but my installer will now download the latest builds.
  12. You can download a new (FF53+) theme that you like, extract the xpi with 7 zip or maybe winrar, it's just a fancy zip. Inside you'll see the actual banner image, which is the theme. You can get the "Personas Plus" add-on for the Classic Addons Archive, which you can use the image you extracted to remake the theme using this add-on. More information on using Personas Plus: https://www.howtogeek.com/203803/HOW-TO-CREATE-YOUR-OWN-FIREFOX-BROWSER-THEME/ This isnt a beautiful process, but it works fine. :)
  13. typo, its actually 1.1 the official "1.0" was never released publicly, only versions before which had no numbers at all
  14. I updated my installer file to install the latest builds, AND i have a new version of my installer (v1.1) change log: added support for more browsers (it should install all of RT1's browsers now) coming soon: task scheduler support UOC patch support addon installation feature (maybe) as always, get it here: http://i430vx.strangled.net/files/XP/RoyTam Browser Installer.exe
  15. Those are last week's links however in your repo i see the correct ones
  16. Thank you Roytam1, whatever you changed worked! It opens the preferences dialog just fine now :)
  17. I don't know if this is something that can be fixed, but on my Celeron 500mhz system without SSE or SSE2 is unable to open the preferences dialog in K-meleon Goanna. The browser seems to run fine otherwise, though. Upon clicking the preferences option, the browser crashes with the typical error if a program tries to use the unavailible instruction sets (SSE or SSE2) I am using windows 2000 extended kernel, which could also be the issue (and not a matter of cpu instruction sets). I'm not really sure, if you could take a look @roytam1, even though it's officially built for xp, that would be much appreciated.
  18. Yeah, I can recommend ff45 sse, NM27, and k-meleon goanna. KM-Goanna has brought new life to my 500mhz celeron system, which doesn't even have SSE!
