  1. May I ask why Spotify is not working with Extended Kernel? Is it a 32bit Application? I feel like Vista could have the potential to become an Everyday-OS again, if we find a way to make Office 2013/Office 365 or LibreOffice work. I really want to use OneNote 2013+ on Vista, as my OneNote for Windows 10 files do not open on OneNote 2010. Thats really sad and alongside Spotify, the reason why I am still unsure whether I should use Vista or 7. By the way, which Antivirus program do you guys use? Is there anyone which works with Extended Kernel?
  2. My specs: Intel i5 8250U 8GB RAM 250GB SSD Windows Vista Home Premium x64 (German) I started using Vista in 2008, after our XP PC refused to start. Back then, I did not know that it was a driver error which led to the crash and not a hardware error (Nowadays I am the PC specialist in our family lol), so we bought a new PC. I cant remeber the processor but I know it had 2GB RAM and ran Business x32. Vista was very nice, we used it till 2013, before we upgraded to Windows 7. I remember that Vista did not support IE10/11 and Office 2013, which were the two major problems with it. We didnt use Windows 7 for a long time (I think only till 2014). In 2015 we upgraded to Windows 8.1, which was very fast in comparison to any other OS I had used before. When Windows 10 came out, our PC couldnt handle, so we made a fresh Clean Install of 8.1 and even nowadays it still runs veryy fine (we upgraded the RAM to 4GB)
  3. Im sorry to interupt your current discussion, as I am not up to date for a few weeks now about this kernel. My question is: Is Office 2013+ or Spotify working now or are you working on it currently?
  4. You havent googled the device number. My S15 does have a normal touchpad and not a screenpad 2.0... In W8.1 the touchpad works after letting Driver Booster install all drivers but in W7 it doesnt work.
  5. Hey Windows 7 Community! 2 years ago I bought a new notebook, which obviously had Windows 10 (1709?) preinstalled. I successfuly downgraded it to Windows 8.1 already. By modifiying the Intel UHD 620 Drivers, I got all drivers working on 8.1 However, when I tried to install Windows 7, the Touchpad (PTP-) Drivers were not working and I always have to connect a mouse. I'm wondering why the touchpad works with 8.1 and if the driver can be modified to use it on Windows 7 as well. My device is the ASUS VivoBook S15 (R520UF-BQ385T). Thanks for any help you can give!
  6. Great news! CCleaner 5.70 (the latest) works on Vista Extended Kernel. Originally, CCleaner dropped support for Vista with v5.64.
  7. I am really curious if the latest VmWare Tools work on Vista. It became so hard to install all of the updates till EOL. Well, not hard, but time stealing
  8. Has anyone tried Vivaldi or normal Google Chrome ? If I extract Chrome 72 x64 it says Chrome stopped working, however chromium 72 works fine
  9. I can extract IE10 8250 from the Win8 Consumer Preview. Ive got an ISO x64
  10. Mozilla Thunderbird (the Firefox Email client) is also working for me with the extended kernel. I thought porting IE10 back to Vista could be my next goal. Vista‘s IE 9 has the version 9.0.8112.x So, doesnt that mean that this IE version is ported from Windows 8 Build 8112? Because IE11 on W7 also has the version number 11.0.9600 which means it is ported back from W8.1? I looked it up and such a build really exists but cant be downloaded anywhere. However, it may be possible to port back IE10 from Build 8250 (Consumer Preview) or?
  11. Nah haha I dont have a YT channel, but I can create one and also do a video if you want about Google Earth Pro or Chromium maybe? Since the kernel is your work, I wouldnt do anything without your permission bro
  12. just found that video which demonstrates Quantum on Vista. WinClient was that your video?
  13. Just found out that the latest Google Earth Pro works on Vista with the new Kernel. Im not sure if it supported Vista but Google says that the min OS was Windows 7. Great news! BUT.. you need to install the latest IE9 patches, otherwise you will receive Certificate errors in GEP
  14. Any can someone pls make a YT Video and show everything from the kernel replacement to the new software versions
  15. Alright, thanks for the quick answer
  16. I followed your instructions, however when I open Export Table Tester, it doesnt show K32... there is basically nothing new to the kernel, although I added all of the non zero code starting at 000BCF50. Im currently on 6.0.6002.18005 (installed every update till EOL). What should I do?
  17. Dear WinClient and win32 (any everyone who participates on this project): Thank you soo much for doing this project, I really appreciate your work. A few months ago I was very sad that NOBODY really appreciated Vista and that Browsing has become extremly risky. I updated it with Server 2008 patches till 04/20 to make IE9 safe at least but as you all know -> 113 HTML5 points are not enough to browse the web anymore. So thank you for this Extended Kernel, so I can use the latest Firefox on my most favourite OS. I hope you will one day be able to port Office 2013+, OneDrive, Skype, Steam and Spotify to Vista. That would be amazing
  18. Sooo nice thanks dude! Windows Vista is an eye candy and FF78 looks soo good. I just put out my old Inspiron mini 1012 and try to use it as well. And yes IE10 is obsolet but I thought it may be easier to port 10 than 11. If you can port IE11 back it would be way more better. You know what would be a big achievement? If you would be able to port Microsoft Edge Chromium to Vista haha
  19. Wow thanks for answering you two. I am a diehard Windows Vista Fan and I grew up using Windows Vista. I think they should have treated Vista better and not always combine it with XP when it comes to EOL's (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Office, LibreOffice..). I mean XP = 2001 ; Vista = 2006/7.. Vista should have received Office 2013 and IE10. I think IE9 is the longest supported Internet Browser in the world, as Server 2008 will receive IE9 updates till 2023, making IE9 unbelievable 12 years old. Microsoft should have definitly given Server 2008 IE10 or 11.. they treated this Server like s***. Talking about IE10, will it ever be possible to port IE10 from Windows 7 or early betas of Windows 8 to Windows Vista? And can you please upload a screenshot of Firefox 78 running on Vista? It feels like ages when I saw a modern browser on Vista.
  20. Dear win32! Is Firefox 78 working with your modifications? Do you have a list of programs that you want to make compatible with Vista? I would really like to install Office 2013 on Vista. It would also be cool if Spotify and OneDrive would work
  21. I also have a Toshiba Satellite A350-134 from 2009, which ran Windows Vista Home Premium at the beginning. I havent used that Laptop since 2013 I guess. I recently used it again and thab I realized that Vista is unsupported for 2 years now. So I upgraded it from Vista to Windows 7 (which might be also a bad decision as the Upgrade took ~2 Hours and Win7 is ending soon). I dont really like Windows 7's shell, so I used this transformation pack and I am REALLY impressed! It feels like Windows Vista SP3 or a refurbished Vista that is so much faster. Windows 8.1 will be my next upgrade, as Windows 8.1 is the fastest OS on this old Laptop. Windows 7 Boot takes over a minute, while 8.1 took 26 seconds. Specs: Model: Satellite A350-134 Ram: 3 GB Memory: 150 GB HDD Processor: Pentium T3400
  22. Hey guys! I saw a Video recently, where Windows 7 got transformed into Windows Vista. I tried it out on a Virtual Machine and I am very impressed by that. It Looks 100 % like Windows Vista, even the Branding is original Vista. As you also know Windows 7 supports Internet Explorer 10/11, Office 2013/2016, Microsoft Security Essentails, latest Chrome, latest Firefox, latest Skype, latest Spotify... It feels like Vista supports those Applications now too I will add a screenshot.
  23. 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?
  24. 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/
  25. 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.
