  1. I know that Vista games work on Server 2008 thanks to this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Kh4qIAaXis, but the link provided by the user WinClient5270 is down. Anyone know a way to have Vista games in 2008?
  2. I open the winver in my windows vista and I get the compilation 6003 instead of 6002, as if it were Microsoft that launched an unofficial service pack 3 as an update rollup or something
  3. In my opinion a somewhat difficult solution but the most direct is to use a hexadecimal editor and compare the vmware-vmx.exe of version 11.1.2 with that of version 11.1.4 and create a patch for compatibility in vista.
  4. You would be using version 11.1.4, 11.1.2 does not have the error. The same for users who have 12.5.x version 12.0.0 does not have it.
  5. Here is a log file to fix VM12 license problems Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\VMware, Inc.\VMware Workstation\Dormant] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\VMware, Inc.\VMware Workstation\Dormant\License.ws.12.0.e1.201505] "StartFields"="Cpt, ProductID, LicenseVersion, LicenseType, LicenseEdition, Field2" "Field2"="Option, Epoch" "Cpt"="COPYRIGHT (c) VMware, Inc. 1999-2015" "ProductID"="VMware Workstation" "LicenseVersion"="12.0" "LicenseType"="Site" "LicenseEdition"="ws" "Epoch"="2015-05-01" "Option"="19" "Data"="MaxVcpusPerVm=8;mdate=2015-03-21" "DataHash"="aa495f5b-a02cc718-ba192372-3393a1ba-fdb5e6d0" "Hash"="f32baca2-cfe0f380-659bc70c-442a9688-6df344d8" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\VMware, Inc.\VMware Workstation\Dormant\License.ws.12.0.e2.201505] "StartFields"="Cpt, ProductID, LicenseVersion, LicenseType, LicenseEdition, Field2" "Field2"="Option, Epoch" "Cpt"="COPYRIGHT (c) VMware, Inc. 1999-2015" "ProductID"="VMware Workstation" "LicenseVersion"="12.0" "LicenseType"="Site" "LicenseEdition"="ws.vl" "Epoch"="2015-05-01" "Option"="19" "Data"="MaxVcpusPerVm=8;mdate=2015-03-21" "DataHash"="9c1fd1a3-49c3429c-641e9076-da73b697-d2ee0588" "Hash"="9811fc4e-e4f95a51-1b40c17c-ad0b652e-20218f07" For your safety, the program never starts it for the first time when I extract the registry
  6. Warning: This only works with versions between 11.0-11.1.2 / 12.0.0 in 64-bit versions of Vista, later versions still do not work. Officially the latest version compatible with Vista in both artitectures is VMware 10.0.7 but VMWare 11.1.2 and 12.0.0 also works in Vista. Process: Install VMware 10.0.7, when starting the program choose the 30-day trial as there will be problems with the license when installing VMware 11 or 12 Create a virtual machine and install Windows 7 there or on another partition or another PC. Then install VMware 11 or 12 there. Returning to Vista, stop all VMware related services and processes Remove the VMware folder from ProgramFilesx86 and replace it with the VMware 11/12 folder Replace all VMware-related files in system32\drivers with those of VMware 11/12 The same as point 4 nothing more than with ProgramData\VMware Restart Windows Vista VMware 11 in Windows Vista !!!
  7. Anyone know how to install Powershell 3 in Vista, that is to say, to edit the update file since it is not as easy as in NT 5.x or use a hack to be able to install it in Vista Ultimate since it only works in Server 2008
  8. First: R.I.P Microsoft Zone Online Games (September 14, 2000 - July 31, 2019) I was bored on my pc, opened a cmd window and ping the old versions of Windows Update, versions 4 and 5 had their own domain while versions 3 and 6 do not have it. Well I ping the domains "v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com" and "v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com" and they sent a response, while also checking to see if it was really still standing in August 2019, I ping it to "v7.windowsupdate.microsoft.com" (never existed). It is mysterious, since MS is strict with support periods. It has been 8 years since the servers that host these sites are turned off, but the domains after 8 years are still standing.
  9. I do not know why it is due but the reason in my case and it may be that in yours also when installing windows 2000 even if you have the integrated sp4 does not copy the usbd.sys and usbhub.sys files but copy them from a virtual machine and it worked on my LGA1155
  10. Hello everyone, again I shared a topic on how to install .NET Framework 4.6.2 up to 4.7.2 on Windows Vista, blackwingcat managed to install .NET Framework 4.5 on Windows 2000, here the link: http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/archives/1707555.html Has anyone also managed to install NETFX 4.5 on Windows 2000?
  11. I managed to install net framework 4.7.2 in Windows Vista correctly: https://msfn.org/board/topic/178673-tutorial-how-to-install-net-framework-472-on-windows-vista/ Other software more updated to the list of latest software compatible with vista. .NET 4.8 does not work due to lack of ordinals
  12. It does not break windows update but applications that require net 4.x do not work
  13. No, I tried it and no type of program that requires .NET Framework 4.x worked, but with my method it worked.
  14. Hello everyone, this time I do not bring a question if not a solution for all users who are still using Windows Vista in 2019, how to install new versions of the .NET Framework in Windows Vista! Tested versions for me: 4.6.2 | 4.7 Requirements to be able to update net framework in Vista to more recent versions: Service Pack 2 installed (I recommend having the platform supplement and all the updates until April 2017) Net Framework 4.6.1 (Latest version compatible tested until moment with Vista) Compressor files like WinRAR or 7zip Warning: You will not be able to use Windows Update again in Vista after installing NET Framework 4.6.2 or 4.7.2, I recommend updating the system with all the updates until April 2017! Let's start with the procedure: Download the net framework version chosen in this case 4.7.2 from the MS page With our file compressor open the executable to install net framework and look for the file ParameterInfo.xml and copy it to the desktop Open the xml and search this line: <BlockIf DisplayText="#(loc.Blocker_UnSupportedOS)" ID="UnSupportedOS"> Replace all this code: <BlockIf DisplayText="#(loc.Blocker_UnSupportedOS)" ID="UnSupportedOS"> <And> <Equals LeftHandSide="Installing" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <Operation /> </Equals> <Or> <Or> <GreaterThanOrEqualTo LeftHandSide="6.1.0" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOS /> </GreaterThanOrEqualTo> <And> <Equals LeftHandSide="6.2" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOS /> </Equals> <Equals LeftHandSide="Client" BoolWhenNonExistent="false" Id="IsClient"> <RegKeyValue Location="HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\InstallationType" /> </Equals> </And> </Or> <And> <Equals LeftHandSide="10.0" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOS /> </Equals> <GreaterThan LeftHandSide="14393" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <RegKeyValue Location="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\CurrentBuildNumber" /> </GreaterThan> </And> </Or> </And> </BlockIf> For this other code: <BlockIf DisplayText="#(loc.Blocker_UnSupportedOS)" ID="UnSupportedOS"> <And> <Equals LeftHandSide="Installing" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <Operation /> </Equals> <Or> <Or> <GreaterThan LeftHandSide="6.0.0" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOS /> </GreaterThan> <Equals LeftHandSide="6.1.0" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOS /> </Equals> </Or> <And> <And Id="Is2k8ServerCore"> <And> <And> <And> <LessThanOrEqualTo LeftHandSide="6.0.0" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOS /> </LessThanOrEqualTo> <GreaterThan LeftHandSide="6.1.0" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOS /> </GreaterThan> </And> <Not> <Equals LeftHandSide="Client" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <TargetOSType /> </Equals> </Not> </And> <Exists> <FileVersion Location="%windir%\system32\oclist.exe" /> </Exists> </And> <Exists> <Path Location="%windir%\system32\scregedit.wsf" /> </Exists> </And> <Not> <LessThanOrEqualTo LeftHandSide="4.0.31106.0" BoolWhenNonExistent="false"> <FileVersion Location="%windir%\System32\mscoree.dll" /> </LessThanOrEqualTo> </Not> </And> </Or> </And> </BlockIf> After saving the file open the net framework executable Open the label that you have installed Vista in this case C and you should find a folder with a long name that includes hexadecimal characters, open it and quickly replace the XML ParameterInfo that you edited. Note: I may still show you that it is not compatible, this is tedious and annoying but try several times as fast as possible to replace the xml ParamenterInfo while the files are being extracted before the installation begins! Net framework updated in Windows Vista!
