  3. I am sure you understand why I would write that it was incompatible seeing as it was listed as such. Thank you again for your assistance, especially in such thorough replies.
  4. I apologize. When that version was added to the draft it had been before the release of 2019.11.7 (and there naturally was no later inclination to search for additional compatible versions before publishing the information as the latest version after 2019.6.4 was already incompatible). You have my gratitude.

  7. WinZip 14.5 is officially the last version of WinZip to support Windows 2000. It introduced the Ribbon interface, making it one of the few applications with the Ribbon to support Windows 2000.
  8. IrfanView 4.50 was recently released and, according to its changelog, support for Windows 9x has unfortunately been terminated: IrfanView 4.44 is, based on changelogs, the officially the last version to support Windows 9x. A shame as I remember using IrfanView in 2006 when I still used Windows 98 Second Edition. It made me happy knowing that it was still supported.

  11. The following virtual folders are the first to be posted in this topic that are not based on pre-release virtual folders or on versions observed in concepts, documentation, images, or patent drawings or patent descriptions. With this post I have focused primarily on the multimedia experience and how virtual folders can improve search, organization, and visualization. In regards to the virtual folders that pertain to bit rates and durations, I originally intended to distribute versions based on individual property values (e.g., a virtual folder for Very Short audio tracks), but a single version that stacks by these properties to display all of their values is more convenient, flexible, and efficient. Additionally, users can always create versions based on individual property values for themselves by either navigating into a stack and then saving it as a search from the "Save Search" option on the Command Bar of Windows Explorer, or by dragging and dropping a stack into a location other than the current virtual folder. All of the virtual folders that stack items over properties display stack icons at a size of 128px. All ISOs aggregates and displays all ISO files from indexed locations and includes visible column headers for Name, Date Modified, Size, and Folder properties, as well as optional column headers for Date Accessed, Date Created, File Owner, Is Shared, and Shared With. Gigantic Items displays items that are larger than 128MB in size and includes visible column headers for Name, Date Modified, Item Type, Author, Keywords, Size, and Folder properties, as well as optional column headers for Date Accessed, Date Created, File Owner, Is Shared, and Shared With. All PDFs aggregates and displays all PDF files from indexed locations include the same visible column headers and optional column headers as the document virtual folders in the original post of this topic. All of the music virtual folders include the same visible column headers and optional column headers as those in the original post of this topic. Additionally, all of the video virtual folders include the same visible column headers and optional column headers as per the original versions of this topic, but also include optional column headers for Comment, Frame Rate, and Total Bitrate properties. The video virtual folders that search for resolutions (e.g., All FHD Videos) search only for Frame Height and Frame Width properties that match their titular resolutions (e.g., All FHD Videos searches for 1920 x 1080 videos) and not for other properties that can be dependent on various factors; the design choice to search only for resolutions allows the virtual folders to aggregate and display all videos of the stated resolution. To compensate I have included optional columns for Frame Rate and Total Bitrate properties. I should note that with the Disliked Music virtual folder the query is literally all indexed audio tracks rated less than 3 stars but more than 0 stars—instead of a mere search for all items rated either 1 star or 2 stars—which is another example of the flexibility of Windows Search in Windows Vista. On the subject of flexibility, so far the virtual folders that have been shared focus on either only a single property or two properties in regards to one or more item types (e.g., the previous New Music is limited to music tracks with either an acquisition date or a creation date), but I intend with my next post to show more interesting, more powerful virtual folder functionality based on either a combination of queries, property values, or perhaps other aspects that one might not have thought possible. Please do not hesitate to leave any comments, requests, suggestions, or thoughts. To download the virtual folders listed below in a compressed ZIP folder, click here.

  12. The majority of earlier pre-release builds of Windows Vista use NTLDR. I do not recall the specific build number off-hand, but I believe the Windows Boot Manager was introduced in late Beta 1 or early Beta 2.
  13. The following virtual folders are based on conceptual images (Communication History from Windows Vista codenamed "Longhorn"); existing concepts (Recorded TV from Windows 7); or patent descriptions (Shared To Me). There is little to no information other than what is revealed in conceptual images or documentation related to many of the virtual folders listed below; therefore, I have created most of them my estimation of how they would have worked—based on existing information—with some (potential) modifications. Communication History is based on the titular concept from pre-reset builds of Windows Vista when it was known by its codename "Longhorn." It is my preferred concept from pre-release builds and, as such, I sought to create a virtual folder that is fundamentally similar. The Communication History virtual folder aggregates items that are recognized as a communication—attachments, calendar entries, contacts, distribution lists, e-mail messages, faxes, journal entries, notes, tasks, and text messages—from indexed locations (particularly Microsoft Outlook) and displays them in a single, unified view. If one imports RSS feeds from the Common Feed List from Internet Explorer 7 or later, or manually adds RSS feeds to Outlook then these RSS feeds will also appear in Communication History. If one uses Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or Exchange Server 2010 and Office Communications Server 2007 with Office Communicator 2007, Office Communicator 2007 R2, or Lync 2010, missed, incoming or outgoing phone call notifications; instant messages; and / or voice mail messages stored in Outlook 2007 or later will also be displayed in Communication History. In this sense, Communication History is similar to the Conversation History folder from Microsoft Outlook 2007 and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007. Communication History includes column headers for the Name (i.e., Item Name Display), From name, To name, Date (i.e., Item Date), and Size properties (which is similar to previous concepts) but I have also incorporated visible column headers for Kind, Keywords, Read status, Importance, Flag Status, Is Attachment, Attachment names, and Folder. Optional columns for the Date Received, Date Sent, Is Deleted, Duration, Due Date, Location, Cell Phone (i.e., Mobile Telephone), Home Phone (i.e., Home Telephone), Business Fax Number, Home Fax Number, IM Address, and Conversation ID properties have also been incorporated. Communication History sorts items based on their primary dates in a descending direction. With Recorded TV I sought to provide Windows Vista with a virtual folder that is better than the Recorded TV library in Windows 7, and there are several advantages over the library: Firstly, because the Recorded TV virtual folder is based on indexed locations, users do not have to manually specify any directories where items are stored, unlike a library which requires users to manually specify a location(s). Secondly, because its query conditions are limited to only items identified as belonging to the Recorded TV kind, it is not possible for the virtual folder to display incorrect items, unlike a library which is based solely on a fixed location(s) and thus requires users to ensure that only certain items reside in that location(s). Finally, the default properties by which one can sort with the virtual folder are many when compared to those of the library. The virtual folder includes columns for Name, Episode Name, Program Description, Date Released, Original Broadcast Date, Recording Time, Length, Type, Size, and Folder properties, as well as optional columns for the Station Call Sign, Station Name, Channel Number, Rerun (i.e., Is Repeat Broadcast), Is SAP, and Is Closed Captioning Available properties. In contrast, the Library Pane of the Recorded TV library only displays: Folder, Year, Type, Length, and Name; the library's column headers only include Name, Item Date, Type, Size, and Length. Shared To Me displays items that are owned by other users and shared to the current user and is based on the virtual folder described in the patent for Windows Vista titled Sharing Items In An Operating System. Shared To Me notably includes a visible column header for the File Owner property, with which its sorts the shared items. Shared To Me is perhaps my favorite virtual folder in this post—and is worth admiration and interest—not only because it powerfully demonstrates the flexibility of Windows Search in Windows Vista, but also because it predates more recent features from services such as Microsoft Office and Google Drive. All of the virtual folders listed below—excluding Shared To Me—function in more recent versions of Windows. To download the virtual folders listed below in a compressed ZIP folder, click here.

  14. Thank you for being interested in it! Would you like me to edit my original post? I converted it from .DOC to .DOCX in Microsoft Office; the .DOCX version is available here. It seems that there are minor formatting issues as a result of this change, but at least the document is now in a safer format.
  15. I am not certain if this post answers any of your questions, and if not please disregard it, but have you viewed A Guide to Reviewing and Evaluating Windows 98 from Microsoft? It discusses many of the new features in Windows 98 when compared with Windows 95. I should note that this document is legitimate is it originates from a self-extracting archive on Microsoft's website that was archived by the Internet Archive Wayback Machine.
