  1. Well in case you do not know Windows Update v3/v4 was removed in August 2011. I started working on a project that consists of opening Windows Update v3 and v4 but locally to install that small amount of updates. What I did was install on my LGA775 Windows 2000 Advanced Server, then install the services of IIS 5.0, DNS and WINS (required for Windows 9x); There are articles and videos on youtube to know about Windows server. Create a domain www.update.microsoft.com and v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com and then edit the hosts file to access the site from your network and not from the MS servers. Then use the ruby script called "wayback_machine_downloader" to download sites from the Web Archive since content is stored in this site. I started testing the WUP3 site from Windows 95 OSR2.5, and here I show you a screenshot and a list of some errors that I witnessed: This capture is really from my Windows 95 VM, it is not an image of a site from 2011 or earlier. Here the defects: 1. My Windows 95 is in Spanish but the Windows Update is in English, even though you have the folder / Static_w95 / V31site / x86 / w95 / en 2. Neither seek me updates when I click on Product Updates I get an error 3. This is not whit Windows 95, if not with the NT 4.0 is not redirected to me.
  2. When I click search in Internet Explorer 6 in Windows XP I get a message saying "Internet Explorer 6 Search Companion is no longer supported." since mid-2015 I get this. But there is a video of someone called Bingocat that was uploaded on April 14, 2016: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tm5ZbALMPc I do not know if something needs to be changed in the registry or something like that since IE6's browser has things in the shell of windows xp.
  3. I know that the dial-up in 2019 does not work much anymore, but I'm curious when watching videos on YouTube connecting old computers with Windows 9x and other old systems to the Internet with the dial-up made by them. I wonder what things I need to put together my dial-up server.
  4. I agree Windows 2000 is and always will be the best MS system! I have Windows 2000 installed on my PC with the unofficial updates of BWC and writing from there. BWC says that it will work only until 2099 but without any problem it passes to 2100 but others will think how it is only in x86 will be until 2038 due to the bug Y2K38 but in Windows based on NT the operating system is x86 or x64 the maximum year is 9999.
  5. I have all the updates on my Windows 2000 PC in English until 2010 including IE6SP1 up to MS12-052 for IE6 or something like that. I have installed v2.9bG and disable Microsoft Groove and still can not install it.

    (Project) Legacy Windows Updates reopened

    I only downloaded a snapshot of the year 2005 that had about 750 files, but now I'm downloading from 3 AM one that has about 85000 that is downloading everything until 2003 since from 2004/2005 it takes more unnecessary time because WUP5 / 6 is stored and WUP4 is stored in another server-domain. You are right greenhillmaniac was the lack of files, so for the tests to take a long time because very slow and more than 9 hours downloading and barely 30012 of the 84853 files when writing this.

    You Want to Change Your Username?

    Can the username be changed more than once? If allowed, change it to "Win2000Fan"
  9. Thanks to blackwingcat and tomasz86 we can run Firefox 13-52, Chrome 0-49, Office 2007, GTA IV and many programs that work in XP but not in 2000, thanks to this, the system seems much less obsolete than it is. But I realized that the extended kernel v2.9b does not work Chrome 51+, Firefox 53+, Office 2010+ and programs that require Vista / 7 in this system due to the lack of instructions and ordinals in the system dll . I want to run simply Chrome 70 and the game Cuphead. Who knows how to add instructions and ordinals, especially blackwingcat and tomasz86 as they do to add instructions and ordinals to the DLLs, they explain to me how they do it.
  10. Modernizr is to give HTML5 to IE6, 7 and 8. But try with IE5.5 but no result, it does not even work with errors. Here the code to find if there is something that blocks versions prior to IE6 or the type of scripts that has none is compatible:
  11. I in a VM install Windows XP Pro SP3 x86, then disable SSL 2 and 3, to enable TLS 1.0. I was able to access Google, but even many sites were not accessible, then I installed KB3081320 to have AES-256 support and I could access more sites with that supported encryption. But there are sites that I can not yet access, for me the problem was that my Windows XP had the IE6SP3 so I updated it to IE8, but everything was the same. Draw the conclusion that the problem was that it was only compatible with TLS 1.0 and not later, which installed KB4019276 and followed all the steps in the microsoft page: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help / 4019276 / update-to-add-support-for-tls-1-1-and-tls-1-2-in-windows. But when checking in https://www.howsmyssl.com he still told me that TLS 1.0 was only activated; I know that some in WinXP + IE8 managed to make these protocols work.

    Enable TLS 1.1 and 1.2 in Windows XP correctly

    They are already enabled correctly and I can not access wikipedia or betaarchive

    Unofficial SP 5.2 for Microsoft Windows 2000 (WIP)

    I come to ask, how to slipstream unofficial updates, in my case I want to slipstream the WinUSB that is in Blackwingcat's WLU. With HFSLIP or maybe with nLite. Since in my Intel 6 Series C200 Chispet, USB does not work and I have to use CD and a PS/2 keyboard to install this system, but my computer does not have PS/2 ports, I can not go that way, due to this problem I can not install Windows 2000 and since 6 months ago I am looking for a solution to this damn problem.
  16. It is said that the Windows XP drivers work in Windows 2000 SP4, in windows 2000 SP4 with the UR1 the driver of this USB wireless does not work because it tells me that the INF file is not valid, this is the INF code:
  17. Yes, you did not look at the other images, you can install the driver with the aforementioned problems, but I'll try what you said
  18. The driver that leaves the INF code was downloaded from the internet because Windows Vista is not compatible with the version of my wireless, but now I am using the original drivers of the CD. I am using the v2 of the Wireless
  19. Hi, I want to know how to change the home screen and the banners in the login screens, the logo in the start menu and the winver logo so that instead of showing "Windows 2000 Advanced Server" it shows "Windows Powered". don't using reshacker or edit the resources of MSGINA.DLL among others! There is a program called TweakNT that it is possible to change Advanced server to Datacenter server. But what things do you edit in the registry to tell me what that edition is? Since Powered does not appear in the list of editions
  20. If Blackwingcat, I had done a few days ago discovering drivers from other devices analyze the 2K and XP. Well at least I made an advance and I can install the driver but with faults; I get an exclamation mark even activating the wireless configuration service. For me now the problem is the SYS file, for me you have to edit it or maybe install a previous version of the driver. Link to download driver (INF Fixed/Setup Fail): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ulPvj46eAcIPtScRF6DcrNKokjGqRL_9
  21. I have seen screenshots of Chrome 49 on Windows Vista with the Glass enabled. As far as I know, I do not know why Google put lines to restrict the Aero in Vista. What is the way to do it?
  22. How can I change the DirectX version of my Windows 2000? I want it to show DirectX 12.0 instead of 9.0c
  23. Hello everyone I came here to ask, Microsoft what font was used in the Windows 95/98 / ME / NT4 / 2000 logos.
  24. I have a copy of Windows NT 4.0 Server, for Windows 2000 and XP slipstream Service Pack 3 with nLite, but there is a tool to slipstream SP6a on NT 4? Also i need support for LBA-48 since my disk is 750GB.

    VS2012 Express Edition on Vista?

    I downloaded Visual Studio 2012 Express Edition, in view the installer was not blocked but I managed to install it only with a problem "Windows SDK for Windows Store Apps" and when I started the program I got an error that says "Can not find one or more components. reinstall the application. " and then it closes. I do not know if it is due to the "Windows SDK for Windows Store Apps", but I do not know why this edition is compatible with Vista. Maybe Microsoft forgot to block the installer when running it in Windows Vista or earlier? Or is this edition of VS2012 officially compatible with Vista?
