  1. I do not know if my discovery is of practical importance, but VirtualBox 6 beta 2 x86 works on Vista, and this is the latest version (from the 6.x series) for 32-bit hosts. Beta 3 and up requires 64-bit host system. Also, if you update from a stable 5.x branch, then localization remains (very partially), if installed from zero, only English is available. Perhaps this version has some functional advantages. Or maybe not. In any case - it is undesirable to use such complex software in the beta form - there are possible bugs with drivers, networks, and so on. But the fact remains that it can be launched on Vista. UPD. Just replace the folder C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\nls from the release version - and all languages will be available. UPD2. To disable beta warning run in terminal window: VBoxManage setextradata global "GUI/PreventBetaWarning" "6.0.0_BETA2"
  2. @Vistapocalypse, I just now installed Windows6.0-KB4474419-v2-x86.msu successfully, rebooted, and haven't any issues, at least for now. The initial version of the update gives in the result the issues I mentioned. At least - on my computer. So good news :)
  3. JRE 9 and JDK 9 x86 - https://mega.nz/#F!gD41iCjQ!YMoTWKGtiJyym7bWDuj7kQ jre-9.0.4_windows-x86_bin.exe and jdk-9.0.3+9_windows-x86_bin.exe :)
  4. @VistaLover, Thanks for the file!) Already downloaded. I did not know it. In truth, I'm - the user, and appreciate the interface features. Mouse gestures and stuff. But I really thought that all unstable assemblies use a fresh engine, and stable ones always lag behind. It turns out that it is not. I've done it before This is not pirated software... I think there is no reason to ban it. But maybe I need to learn the rules better. I still give links to 32-bit Java.
  5. @VistaLover Excellent - thanks for the clarification! I checked the stable version 1.1 of the one that was on my hard drive without taking the latest build. I'm more interested in version 1.2.470.11.dev . Of course, any old browser has vulnerabilities and incompatibilities - but in a more recent build there are fewer ones - so it is preferable. And it is interesting to test the implemented features that formally should not work on Vista. uBlock Origin should be on GitHub - all versions. If you can not share this version of Vivaldi here - can you send it via e-mail? I wrote you a private message.
  6. Does this mean the immediate termination of the Telegram from this date, like Skype? Or - only the lack of updates - and the program will work until the next incompatible change - half a year, a year?
  7. Will it be legal if I provide here link to download the x86 version of Java 9? On MEGA. I will not break any rules and rights? After all, these installers (JRE and JDK) were originally publicly available to anyone?
  8. An obvious thought occurred to me and I decided to check it out. If Vista is compatible with Chromium 50, then Vivaldi at its base must also be compatible. I unpacked the installer 1.1.453.52 Stable - and put the files in the place where the already installed version of Vivaldi was located. And the browser has successfully launched I also assume that the latest test version of the browser that will run on Vista is Vivaldi 1.2.470.11 Snapshot. But unfortunately - links to old snapshots from the official site do not work - the files are deleted. And nowhere else on the network is there an installer for this version. If you have it or you know where to find it - please share it
  9. @Vistapocalypse, I installed the latest version from the site at the moment I reported this. Yes, I have these values in the registry.
  10. I've checked Krita. Version 4.1.7 is working on Vista (by unpacking method), Krita 4.2.0 - no. "The procedure entry point RaiseFailFastException could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll."
  11. @Jaguarek62, @Vistapocalypse, understood. I have these updates installed.
  12. I'm a little confused, but on the site - https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4493472 - no update for Vista or Windows Server 2008?
  13. @Vistapocalypse, no, this update has passed my attention. I can install it and check AVG again. I can then delete through safe mode, if something goes wrong?) UPD. I just installed this update. Everything still works.
  14. @Vistapocalypse, Great Glad I could detect this update. But do I understand correctly - does it (KB4474419) change something with encryption of updates? And all the following updates until 2020 can not be installed without it? Thanks for the clarifying link!
  15. KB4474419 broke themes in my Vista (only classic win95-like style is available). Also it gives an error '"Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service". I'm rolled back and errors dissappeared.
  16. @Vistapocalypse, I have installed all the updates for Vista, including some of those offered for the server version. Perhaps because of this, the build number has changed? I would like to know the reason. Nevertheless, the system works stably, there are no incompatibilities or blue screens. I do not use resident protection on this system - any antivirus causes slowdowns. Instead, I configure the OS to work safely, disabling unused services, installing updates, configuring firewall. I carefully watch what programs I run. And I left UAC enabled. I check the system from time to time using the MSE - installed on Windows 7 on the same computer. Also the last time I used Dr.Web CureIt - it started up normally on Vista and did a scan. This is a non-resident portable scanner. And a year ago I used the AVG, and everything worked. It is a pity if now it no longer works. UPD. I just installed AVG Free. Everything is working. Rebooted - no BSOD. What update breaks antivirus? I installed everything mentioned in the forum thread that you gave, except for KB4474419 - it leads to errors and incorrect functioning of the services.
  17. Artweaver 6 unofficially works on Vista. It can be installed without any tricks.
  18. WPS Office 2019 works on Vista, so status is - ongoing. FineReader 14 (latest for now) - works on Vista, if unofficial portable version used. Nero 2019 works on Vista, if unofficial repacked version used. OpenVPN v. 2.4.6-I602 is the last version of software, that works correctly on my Vista. Version 2.4.7 brings errors, and connection is not establishing. The last snapshot of Vivaldi browser, that runs on Vista is v. 1.1.443.3. PROMT 18 is the last version of software for Vista. Maybe, it's possible to run PROMT 19, but I could not do it yet. SuperTuxKart 1.0.0 - fresh version of this game is still possible to run on Vista
  19. Guys, I found an application that requires .NET Framework 4.7.2 - dnSpy is .NET debugger and assembly editor. https://github.com/0xd4d/dnSpy And yes, it works on Vista! Unfortunately, I'm not yet so cool to use it. Portable application. Does not require installation.
  20. Some information. The latest version of Adobe Air for Vista is Starting with version 30, this software does not work on XP and Vista. Sound Forge 13 runs on Vista, if you use the portable option (if you find it). Unfortunately, I don’t know how to do it legally, so I don’t provide links. Just information for those interested. I also have two files - jdk-9.0.3+9_windows-x86_bin.exe and jre-9.0.4_windows-x86_bin.exe . They are successfully installed on 32-bit Vista. But! They were released, and then immediately removed from public access, and officially they are not available. However, in fact, if you need Java 9 on Vista x86, you can get it. And these are the latest versions for the x86 platform. There are no updates and never will be. Also chinese UC Browser, PC-version - works on Vista. It is based on Chromium 55.
  21. The latest version of FileZilla I was able to run on Vista is 3.39.0. Later versions no longer work. I even tried using PEMaker, but it didn't work. Maybe I did something wrong - check if there are interested ones. Therefore, probably, FileZilla also dropped out of the race.
  22. @Blados, no, both architectures are supported. But the developers, when they throw support for Vista, complained that the code was very different and difficult to maintain. Due to hardware acceleration. I tried to run the MSI file - it sends to setup.exe . Setup.exe requires Windows 7. I modified the MSI file and installed it. With .NET 4.7.2 is installed. ... is not Win32 application. Alas.
  23. Paint.NET requires Windows 7. Developers throw old Windows very quickly. Only v. 3.5.11 works on Vista. Is it possible to run Paint.NET as a portable application?
  24. @Blados, perhaps you are right. I just installed all the files in order that I downloaded. Some of them installed, some is not. It is a pity that they do not come in an official way (Then only the necessary would be applied). But it is logical.
  25. @Blados, I also tried to look for what is possible to install - it turned out 22 updates. Here is a list. But probably, it's also did not complete. It now remains to find applications that require these fresh versions of the .NET Framework
