  1. Modern browsers work on Windows 98 as per the first post. Read the hard work put in by other members to find out how to do it.
  2. It’s not speedstep but have you installed the 2k dual core registry fix? That may be causing part of the hotter temperature. My D630 runs fairly cool with the fix but I think my CPU is a T8 something or other
  3. NNN4NT5 - it’s included with BWC’s extended kernel
  4. Fair enough that could be an issue... I do have a folder full of 2K updates which I saved with WSUS offline so if worst comes to worse I could put them on a file share for you. I believe on the internet archive people have saved all the updates though too so that might be easier access so you could download and burn to a disc if your laptop has a reader? Failing that you’d probably need to go down the slipstreaming route for your installer
  5. @i430VX posted a very handy video which may help you out here
  6. Those memory sticks were branded Integral here in the UK. My Dad had either the 256mb or 512mb and I had the 1GB version. I still have my 1GB and it emulates a floppy which has the driver on so I’ll see if I can access it and if so what OSes it supports
  7. Fair enough - it's almost like all data for each session isn't getting saved - when starting again I don't get any autocomplete from before. Maybe it's down to path differences between 9x and NT OS's? I'm running Roytams build of FF45 SSE version. Haven't had any crashes as of yet but I'll let you know if I do.
  8. Apologies for what feels like spam posting... Further to my endeavors I have discovered the following: Address and search bar can be worked around using the above post or by installing Adobe Type Manager 4.1. I used this to install AwesomeFont 4.7 and after this coincidentally fixed the bars. I'm guessing this is down to it installing some required but not necessary files. The browsers do work in a Virtual Machine using the files I got from my extended Windows 2000. This leads me to think there is potentially an issue with one of the files from XP SP3? Anyhow, once again thankyou for all the work that has been put in to getting these working.
  9. So I've had a play around this morning with Classic Theme Restorer and it seems that if you change the toolbar mode from Show Icons Only to any other option then the search and address bar display all the text. Not sure how or why but it's a decent work around. Is there any way on FF45 to get it to remember that I've accepted the Google user agreement or is that something I should live with?
  10. Hi @schwups just wanted to let you know I finally have ff45 working on Windows ME. Not sure what I've possibly done different to last time when I couldn't get it to start. Although the differences this time are I took the DLL's from a KernelEx'd Windows 2000 and I'm also trying it on physical hardware. Is it a possible issue with Virtual Machines or the fact my Dlls came from 2k instead of XP SP3? Thankyou for your hard work and Jumper in getting this working. One quick question is there anyway to stop the address bar and search bar from missing the last letter?
  11. I’m not entirely sure but it could be the difference in SMB versions. Although you could try setting a shared folder on NT4 and then connecting from the Mac to the new shared folder.
  12. Windows 98SE and Windows ME. If I can figure out as to why the newer Firefox browsers aren’t working for me as per Schwups’ instructions I’ll probably choose these over Win 2k
  13. Currently trying on ME. MSVCRT.DLL is version 6.1.9848 Weirdly I'm now getting XPCOM error. Kernelex settings for XUL and exe are set to XPSP2. Verify.exe says Kernelex is installed correctly. Ktree is showing kextstubs under core.ini. Kextstubs is the file from your post earlier on the thread with a renamed 823 file. I assume this is correct?
  14. Thankyou for your response. So those files all exist in the Kernelex folder, knowndlls list has all five listed in quotes like this "XXX.DLL" however the actual file names are lowercase. Copying those into the FF folder results in xul.dll saying kernelex.dll is missing. Copying that into the FF folder still results in error on starting. Profiling firefox.exe in dependency walker then shows certcli.dll missing? Second chance exception then occurs in msvcrt.dll I'm guessing it's something I haven't done but not entirely sure. Many thanks
  15. I’m trying to get FF45 to run however I just get an error occurred on opening. DW shows 4 DLLs as missing however they are in the kernelex folder. Is the known DLL list in the registry case sensitive? I’ve added the files from the core updates. Firefox.exe and XUL.dll are both at XP SP2 compatibility mode. I’m guessing I haven’t configured KernelEx correctly but not sure?
  16. Hi all, Does anyone have any ideas for getting the GMA500 driver to work on 2000? It’s on an Acer Aspire One 751h. Tried with Extended Kernel and Extended Core however I get a blue screen. Currently removed 2000. I’ve tried slipstreaming the drivers too but no luck here either. Thank you in advance
  17. Does anyone have the latest English version of extended core? I need to install some XP only drivers and believe this can help with that. The legacy update site is only showing the Japanese version
  18. Yes that’s the one I used. Initially I installed it without having any client installed and received the error so removed and started with the XP version and then installed that over the top. I checked the registry entries for where the language was pointing and the files exist. Googling brings up others who have had the error but obviously on newer oses so not sure if it’s maybe an issue in one of the dll’s and how it links? I don’t want to complain though as I’m truly grateful for all you do for the Win 2K community and the software that now runs thanks to you
  19. Windows 2000 is pretty useable to me. It can be hit and miss running modern software but no more than XP and sometimes even vista. BWC’s extended kernel brings you more or less to XP/Vista level and maybe even 7 a little. The things currently lacking are Anti-Virus after Avast dropped updates for versions that run and I’ve not had much look for versions 10 and up. Spotify runs sort of but the newer kernels make it a little unhappy. Roytams browsers run well. Office 2007 works no issue but later versions don’t work I think due to 2000 not having the activation services built into the system. Overall I choose to use 2000 over anything newer where possible. It’s stable, fast and does anything pretty much modern os’s do. I have a Virtualbox VM for running Windows on a mac when I don’t want to boot into bootcamp and have multiple laptops that run it nice and happy - Dell D630, Clevo W76(I think) etc. I started using 2000 as it was the closest visual representation of 98SE/ME that could run modern apps and work with newer hardware.
  20. I'm having the same issue too with the latest package from legacy update. Tried the older 2015 version and it is bringing the same error. The original XP version works no issue?
  21. Have you installed all of the latest updates for 2k before installing exKernel? Also, the version you’re installing is fairly outdated now? V3.0f is the latest I think
  22. I ran the installer in XP SP3 which is the bit I find odd. After install it runs perfectly and then restarts for an update at which point it then wants Windows 7. On XP a fresh install doesn’t run the update and just says support has ended. It’s very odd but I can’t seem to figure it out on my own.
  23. Hi All, Out of curiosity does anybody have any idea as to why when Spotify is installed with extended kernel it tries to update itself thus rendering unusable? The part I can’t understand is this only happens on a fresh install using the final XP version. Rolling back makes it work and then it updates itself making it unusable again. On an existing install from a couple of years ago Spotify is quite happy and doesn’t try to update. I have tried blocking permissions to the Update folder in Local Settings\Application Data but that then causes Spotify to have a VB error. My theory is something along the lines of because the program doesn’t detect XP SP3 as the installed OS it considers itself worthy of an upgrade however it then installs a version requiring Win 7 and above. I tried setting the Spotify exe to XPSP3 in fcwin2k however this also doesn’t seem to make a difference. It does allow the initial install though. If anybody has any ideas I’d be very grateful - it’s something that has me stuck. On a side note installing the last XP version on a new XP install does not cause it to update and actually says we’re dropping support for your current platform but as many will know that is along the lines of we’re not giving you updates but it’ll probably keep working. Thankyou all in advance.
  24. I ran the updates today for a fresh install - MS Update seemed to be dragging it’s heels. The scan probably took a good 2 hours or so and then it seemed to take a while to initiate the download itself but still ran through and completed.
