  1. I tried playing Celeste on the Vista extended kernel (Celeste supports Win7 minimum) and the error I got was exactly this: "The procedure entry point BCryptDeriveKeyPBKDF2 could not be located in dynamic link library bcrypt.dll" Any alternatives to this entry point?
  2. It's a DLL resource file in C:\Windows\Branding. you can use ResourceHacker to edit that to be whatever you want as long as it fits the same size.
  3. Windows 11 has officially been released to eligible Windows 10 systems and new computers today. You can find the MCT on Microsoft's site. Support lengths go as: Windows 11, 21H2 Home & Pro: October 10, 2023 Windows 11, 21H2 Enterprise & Edu: October 8, 2024 You can download and install it on any PC right now, but to get it through Windows Update it may take a while and will only let you on compatible hardware. I'll be testing it on an 8250U with Bitlocker to see how the experience on the stable build goes. This isn't really a beta software anymore, so I don't think it fits this part of MSFN.
  4. We are roughly 2 weeks until the release of Windows 11. On the day it comes out I will be testing it on my PC to see how it runs for me. Based currently, it just seems like a reskinned version of 10. PC Health Check says my PC is 100% compatible, so that's nice at least. They added support for the 7th gen CPUs....but only for the Surface product that they are still selling. Classic. But whatever, if Microsoft will screw over your updates because your CPU is "affected by Spectre/Meltdown" when in reality it was only an issue to enterprises because a normal consumer wont notice any performance downsides from the Spectre/Meltdown patches. I wish 11 was more of a decent upgrade to do like iOS 15 is. I am already on 15 and it runs pretty much the same as 14. Some improvements to notifications that I like too. One thing I am excited to see though is how it runs compared to 1904x. 1904x has had many issues for me over the period of time it has been out so I am interested in seeing how 11 runs, and possibly use it later on depending on how my experience goes.
  5. I bought Celeste on the Microsoft Store so I could play it on my Xbox. There could be times where I am not on 16299 or later (for testing, experimenting, or just messing around) and I would like to be able to play it on versions before then. Is there a way to install the app forcefully? The Steam version and other ones run just fine all the way back to Windows 7.
  6. anything 1904x (2004, 20H2 and 21H1) has huge issues with integrity. It runs fine for the first month, then after a while it starts decaying with broken C++ and update histories disappearing. This is because 19041.1 was finalized in December 2019, making all those versions about 2 years old now, with almost 24 cumulative updates available. Avoid 1607. Update system is extremely flawed and its more wasted time than anything. 1507 is possible but no .NET 4.8 so many apps don't work anymore. Same with 1511. I would say 1703, 1709, 1803, 1809, 1903 or 1909 was the period of time where Windows 10 was actually looking somewhat OK.
  7. https://www.tomsguide.com/news/windows-11-requirements-microsoft-says-theres-no-getting-around-them Hm.
  8. As Windows 8 killed off Aero support, we were still able to add it back. Fortunately does not appear to be the same for the taskbar. Open Shell does not hook correctly anymore and its possible it never will be. The taskbar was completely overhauled and is now UWP. Press F7 and you can find out. Action Center + Clock + Generic icons have been merged, removing the ability to hide certain ones you want to see which also kills off t-clock. Not sure if these programs will be able to fix the issues, but if they aren't, they might as well be dead software at this point. DWM also has been overhauled with no sun in sight for bigmuscle to even get 2004 operating. As of right now, Aero, Classic start menus and customizable system trays are gone for good. Also, Win11 is worse for multiple monitors. They removed the clock on secondary taskbars, which is something I heavily used and will not get used to not having it. It makes no sense to do so. Windows 11 is just another release of disappointments and killed software.
  9. Appears that UUPDump fails to integrate the .51 update and leaves you with a weird leak + Win11 insider build of 22000.1. Missing some features but more similar to the leaked build. UUPDump sometimes works, sometimes it doesn't.
  10. I saw a video on youtube today and its honestly really true. Makes me like the existence of forums like msfn nowadays, since most of the similar ones died out years ago.
  11. TPM 2.0 is a requirement on Microsoft's site now. TPM 1.2 is no longer sufficient.
  12. Yet, they may make older CPUs stopped installing in general in later insider builds.
  13. 11 is now officially destroying a lot of computers. They updated the hardware requirements. TPM 2.0, UEFI and Secure Boot are now all REQUIRED to be enabled and on. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/whats-new/windows-11-requirements It's Vista all over again. Plus, they also mentioned that you must have a CPU in the supported processors list to run 11. 11 is officially having a worse announcement than 10.
  14. Now we have two things I absolutely hate. I am not upgrading to Sh**dows 11. Requirement of TPM 1.2 (which basically kills most computers older than 2014) And now I present.... Microsoft misleading users!!! Microsoft made a list of "supported" CPUs for Windows 11 when in reality they aren't the full supported list. They are misleading people into upgrading their PC because its "unsupported" even though its only from 5 years ago for more sales and in turn more product keys purchased. That is how they are gonna make money from this. There is no reason why Windows 11 wouldn't even run on a Core 2 Duo.
  15. Exactly. This seems like some sort of move to try and win back the XP and 7 users.
