Hey Vista Community! As many of you know, Office is no longer supported on Vista as of version 2013. Because of many reasons, including Design, OneDrive connection and Support, I would really like to have Office 2013 rather than 2010. The installer always gives me some dll errors and I know that it is officially not supported and only for Windows 7+... But does anyone know how to run Office 2013 somehow on Vista? Is there any hack or edit?
Hey guys! As many sources already announced it, Microsoft will update Internet Explorer 10 to Internet Explorer 11 on Windows Server 2012 and Windows Embedded 8. If that happens, IE11 can also be installed on Windows 8 because they have the same build number (9200). At least backporting will be easy https://www.osnews.com/story/129296/bringing-internet-explorer-11-to-windows-server-2012-and-windows-embedded-8-standard/
Hi guys! I'm new in this Forum and I really love Windows Vista. I use it since 2007 or 2008 I dont quite remember. I always hated it when people talked bad about Vista. I dont think that I have to explain, why Vista was a huge Milestone in the history of Windows and that Vista's successors all base on Vista. My project is to port Chrome 51 or 52 to Vista. Personally, I dont think that it is impossible. Chrome 50 works very well, 51 opens but doesnt loads pages, 52 crashes completly. It is because there are new API's used that Vista doesnt support. I always wanted to know which exact file it is that blocks Vista. There are several backports that base on Chromium 54 for example, that run with Vista, but what did the developers do? Is it possible to install Windows 7's APIs in Vista or what do I have to change to run the software. Same goes for IE10, Office 2013, Firefox 54 and WMP12. I really want to have Office 2013&IE 10 on Vista because IE10 renders pages wayyy better than IE9. I already have the plan to backport some Windows 7 feauters to Vista.
