  1. I have problems with updates hanging forever and wuauserv gobbling one whole CPU core. Last time that happened, I installed some cumulative updates and problem unconstipated itself. Not so lucky this time.

    What to do about java at this late date?

    No idea, didn't try.

    What to do about java at this late date?

    It will work in XP, with a catch. Anything using jfxwebkit.dll(say, a java application with html GUI) will fail, because that component has vista+ dependencies.

    Ashampoo Spectre Meltdown CPU Checker

    Crashes after changing EXE header to run in XP(no extra functions in import section). My guess is dynamically loaded functions.

    Compatibility layers for XP

    Hai guise, I've been thinking about the whole "uniting efforts" thing, so a chat on the theme of compatibility layers has been made. https://kiwiirc.com/client/irc.freenode.net/?#AppCompat Feel free to stick around.

    Compatibility layers for XP

    Yeah, I wouldn't count that source release https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/1ec356c428db86c0bc95aca3e2e235cbd39b41db4d2797e9cd053d4f54b16c60/analysis/1491498436/ ExtendedXP looks relatively ok here.

    Compatibility layers for XP

    So I see this comes as a windows update package that overwrites system files. I'm generally reluctant to install such things. What does it bring?

    Compatibility layers for XP

    Poking around the forum, I find there are more compatibility layer projects than I thought. So I make this thread in attempt to keep track of them. It makes sense that at one point efforts be united. List: *VAIO/AlkyForApplications by Falling Leaf Systems This project is long abandoned. Source released. http://alkyforapplications.net/ https://github.com/callen/Alky-Reborn http://demoseen.com/blog/2009-12-27_Alky_Postmortem.html *Extend Kit by BlackwingCat This project replaces OS files directly and comes as an update. Use with care. Closed source. http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/archives/1706829.html *Extended XP by Dibya This project also replaces OS files directly and comes as update. Use with care. Closed source. http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/176005-creating-a-full-blown-compatibility-layer/ https://ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=10631&p=142341 *DllCompat by MySoft Binaries in GIT. Open source. http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/176604-dllcompat-vista-api-extensions-in-xp/ https://github.com/MyTDT-Mysoft/DllCompat *One-Core-API by Skullytrail192 x86 and x64 binaries available. Open source. https://github.com/Skulltrail192/One-Core-Api *XomPie by tumagonx Binaries included in GIT. Open source. https://github.com/tumagonx/xompie/ ---------------------------------------------------------- *Wine3D for Windows This is wrapper of Directx 1 - 11 API to OpenGL. Based on Wine project, open source. http://fdossena.com/?p=wined3d/index.frag ---------------------------------------------------------- If anyone fancies, MySoft and I have a chat on Freenode themed on compatibility layers. See above "uniting efforts" thing. https://kiwiirc.com/client/irc.freenode.net/?#AppCompat
  12. Hai guise, https://github.com/MyTDT-Mysoft/DllCompat This is an opensource project meant to make dll wrappers for Vista+ APIs in Windows XP, not unlike the old project AlkyForApplications. Currently provided dlls are: advapi3x, kernel3x, msvcrx, opengl3x, powrprox, shell3x, vcruntime140, ws2_3x Usage: Firstly, put dlls in your windows folder. Next, your application will likely be NT6 app so you need to patch exe header with CFF Explorer, to allow it to run in XP. This patching is not needed for any dlls. Currently, there is no fancy patcher or compatibility settings mode. You have to manually inspect your application exe and dlls it depends on with DependencyWalker. Next, you take all exes and dlls with missing imports and import them into CFF Explorer. Go to Import Directory and replace bad dll import with our version. Check edited exes/dlls against DependencyWalker again. Contributions and reports are most welcome.
