  1. Hi luweitest, Thank you for trying to help. I however have to disagree with your statement. I cannot connect via TeamViewer between either of my three computers on the home LAN, even though "Incoming LAN connections" is set to "accept" as per your suggestion. My Windows 10 machine runs TV 15.11.6 (which is latest), my two Windows XP Home SP3 machines run TV 14.2.56676 (which is also latest for WinXP). Every time I try to establish a connection such as: - From Win 10 machine to Win XP machine - From Win XP machine to Win XP machine I get the following sweet message one (see below). When trying to connect Win XP machine to Win 10 machine, I get the similarly sweet message two (again see below). So TeamViewer is out the door for me. But TightVNC does perfect job in this regard - the only drawback is not so visible display, but this is not a big headache. Best :-) PS. Please note that Microsoft Remote Desktop does NOT work with Windows XP Home; works only with the Pro version.
  2. Thanks for the tip, Goodmaneuver. I will try it next time I need to switch up drivers again. Do not like 82.69, tried it a couple of times, games have problems with it. Best :-)
  3. Thank you, jaclaz, it seems like the tool that fits my needs. Strange how I missed it during my search.
  4. Hi guys, For about 5 years now, I have been using a headless box running updated-to-the-last Windows XP Home SP3 to store and keep my software, games, video and music files. TeamViewer was my tool to connect to this machine from my main computer for the purpose of manually updating the antivirus definitions (Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1), browse the stored files, and finally shut down the machine when finished. It was a simple, workable solution that served me perfectly. The last version of TV on this machine was 14.2.56673. Unfortunately, TeamViewer in all their wisdom decided to ditch Windows XP altogether. Now I cannot connect to the storage comp either from my main computer (Windows 10 x64, TV 15.10.5), or from the third computer on my small home LAN - another XP Home SP3 with TV 14.2.56673. Forgot to mention that even the 5-minute limited session is no longer available. I spent some time on the Internets looking for alternatives to TV, but none is much to my liking. Also cannot use the Windows Remote Connection from my Win 10 machine because it does not work with WinXP Home versions (unless you convert from Home to Pro using hacks, which is something I do not want to do). Does anyone know of some tool that can remote connect Win 10 and Win XP machines (or Win XP Home to Win XP Home machine) similar to TeamViewer, but operating within the boundaries of the home LAN; meaning it does not have to go through some server somewhere on the Internet that requires account, ID, authentication and so forth? Please share thoughts and suggestions on this topic, will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Best to all :-)
  5. Hi guys, I have two retro machines running vanilla Windows 98SE US-English version. Video card in both is nVidia GeForce Ti 4200, AGP 2X/4X, 64MB RAM. DirectX is 8.1. Use these machines mostly for playing older video games, or using legacy productivity software. For the games part, I often have to rotate between different driver versions, going as far back as 30.82 and as recent as 81.98, which is the latest that officially support GeForce Ti 4200. While most of the driver versions install and uninstall without a hitch, 81.98 gives me headache every time I have to uninstall it. It throws the usual "Nvudisp has caused an error in Nvudisp.exe and will now close" and cannot uninstall. I have to go into a Safe Mode, revert to VGA driver, and use Driver Cleaner to get the job done. It is a hassle. If someone knows how to resolve this issue, please give a hint. Forgot to mention that I have tried both the English and the International versions of 81.98, same thing - uninstall is busted. Thanks in advance for any help. Best :-)
  6. Dave-H, thank you for giving us these heads-up. Appreciate your time and efforts. Stay well! Playing Iron Maiden's "Empire of the Clouds" in your honor now :-)
  7. Hi guys, Yesterday I tried to update my 3 Win XP installations: - Win XP Home SP3 without any MS Office suite - Win XP Home SP3 with MS Office 2010 suite - Win XP Pro x64 SP2 with MS Office 2010 suite and it failed on all occasions. Frankly, I expected eventual updates only on the installations that have Office 2010. However, all I got was some error messages from the Windows/Microsoft Update page. I guess M$ finally pulled the plug on the Update services for Win XP iterations? Probably because that will save them a lot of money for hosting and traffic expenses? Greets!
  8. For me the today's scan of Microsoft Update on a WinXP Home SP3 machine took a good two-hour period. When completed, three updates showed up, total of 41 MB. Installed without a hitch. Again M$ pushed a broken MSO.DLL (14.0.7252.5000), had to be replaced with the last good one (14.0.7214.5000) in order for the Office apps to work. Are M$ people really so dumb and stupid they still have no clue that their so-called updates for Office 2010 create problems for users?
  9. Thank you very much, Ximonite. I looked for this thing on MDGx, but could not find it. My bad, most likely. Greets and salutations!
  10. Hi guys, I am having hard time to find this update for Win95/98: DSClient.exe English version 5.0.2920.5 (this is the latest as far as I know based on KB Article 323466) Please help me out. The initial version is 5.0.2920.0 - is can be found easily, but I am looking for the latest one. More info: https://web.archive.org/web/20030803131704/https://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=323466 Thanks in advance!
  11. I have to apologize for wasting other people' time and efforts. Obviously age is catching up with me and I would do better to stop tinkering with hardware. Problem was resolved in the most banal and obvious manner - by updating chipset driver. Latest driver from Gigabyte for this particular MoBo was from August 2006. That is what I had originally installed on my machine. Went to nVidia site and downloaded latest driver for the nForce 4 Series (GeForec6100/nForce430) version 15.26 from March 2009. Installed, and problem is gone. Simple as that. Should have thought of that to begin with, but .... Anyways, thanks again to everyone who tried to help me through my stupidity. Best :-)
  12. Hello ED_Sln: Thank you very much for taking so much time and efforts to help with the problem. Really appreciate it. I tried to do what you suggested, however I already have the standard IDE controller installed - see pic. When I try to see if there any other SATA Controller to install, I only have this option:
