    For me yes, it literally builds all the stability and the future of our Windows installation. If you are someone who reinstalls often, I advise you to make clones. Windows Vista RTM is a stable bone, you just have to know that some services crash but you can restart them to fix them. For example the control panel can either not open or be empty, it is these services that must be restarted: net stop EMDMgmt net stop slsvc net start EMDMgmt net start slsvc If we master Windows Vista RTM well after it becomes our friend and if we correctly sort all the updates to install, it becomes as clean as an arch linux.

    But, noone answered me. Will even Vista RTM (fresh installation) recognice properly my audio card and my USB stuff (of course USB 2.0)? Will there run any XP SP2 software? My audio card (Realtec) and USB stuff work properly on a freshly installed Vista (custom iso) with SP2.

  2. I might try some day the RTM as someone suggested, but I have several questions. Firstly, will Vista RTM recognice my sound card and my USB devices? These devices work well with Vista SP2 (a custom iso), and audio is very important for me. Secondly, what about Net Framework 4.6 after the installation? I don't want to break nothing, and the custom iso I used had .net framework 4.6 integrated. Newer .net versions break Windows Update and some old .net 4 applications, so installing .net framework 4.7 or newer is not a solution.

  3. Here's my suggestion! 1. Open a cmd. 2. Type there sfc /scannow. 3. Wait until the process is completed and restart your pc. $. Run the ExKernel setup, if the first time it's not working you should run it one more time. Then, if the installer tells that the setup is complete, you can restart the system. Additionally, after the scanning, you should take all .bak files and move it to another place or rename the extension from .bak to .bak1 or whatever you want. That worked for me at least.

  4. Recently, I needed to downgrade the Extended Kernel, but finally reupgraded to the march 9 build. The fact is that now Eclipse IDE is not working, while some Java SWT apps still work. Here's the link.


    I'm wondering if this is related with Windows Vista Extended Kernel or is related with a strange Eclipse behaviour. To solve it, I tried to upgrade and downgrade Eclipse. Is also important to tell that I use a portable version. I also tried with different versions of the extended kernel, (all 2023 builds and the latest 2022 build). Apparently only Eclipse is affected. I also tried to install/uninstall Java, but no result since it uses it's own JDK as I could notice.

  5. You need to install Windows Vista Updates (I430VX made a video about that). Then you install the SHA2 updates and then you install the extended kernel. Cannot post directly the download link cause that violates msfn rules about posting modified dlls/microsoft softwares.

  6. The situation is pretty complex. I voted to stay in 10, but there are several things to consider. Firstly, Windows 10 is still supported, and it is the most used Windows version at least by now. Regarding Windows 11, I never had important problems with it, but it now requires a Microsoft account and some people might not want to use a Microsoft account. I even hate OneDrive's syncing stuff. So, I might consider an upgrade if the ltsc of Windows 11 would be released and Microsoft account stuff would be optional. By now, I might stay on 10 and when Windows 10 will be surpased by Windows 11 I'll consider a Linux migration.

  7. I want to post something about this. Firstly, what do you think about a creation of a proxy in node.js with Puppeteer? Puppeteer is a JavaScript library that "eat Javascript for lunch" and return the html. So, since we could live without CSS grid and the newest CSS3 stuff, our deal is JavaScript! So, a proxy in node.js using puppeteer could solve some anoyances, and it might make some React sites to work such as Mastodon instances, or that's my opinion at least. It could be useful for old Windows 9x users. And this was the philosofy of Opera Mini on Symbian mobile devices as far as I know. Moreover, node.js and Puppeteer is using Chrome's V8 engine.

    Last but not least, you should put a description of the image and steps using text, some people might not be able to read it. I sometimes do some of my work on a Linux VM with latest Ubuntu Mate inside my Vista X64 system.

  8. I made the tweak as I told, I even disabled older TLS versions. I have a microsoft outlook account that previously worked, but it now refuses to send/receibe emails when I use Windows Mail. So, for sending/receibing emails my options are:

    1. Windows Mail (builting in Windows Vista).

    2. Outlook 2003 (it seems to be a bit laggy and don't work sometimes.

    3. Outlook 2007 (at least it don't have ribbon UI).

    I don't want to use outlook 2010 or newer due to the Ribbon UI. If none of the apps I mentioned earlier can't work properly in Vista, I might start to use thunderbird or a page with a bassic html4 client (unfortunately without notifications) cause the normal web version of outlook also sucks.

  9. I installed the TLS1.2 update in Windows Vista and even deactivated older tls versions in internet options, but Microsoft Outlook still tell me to upgrade cause TLS1.0 and TLS1.1 are not supported. Any way to achieve that? I have another question, if I reinstall the system some day, it is possible to keep IE7 instead of upgrading to IE9 and still get the TLS 1.2 stuff?
