  1. IIRC, in Windows Vista, Aero relies on DirectX 10 when possible.
  2. I have a feel that the next release of the extended kernel will be much different from the current one... is there a 'preview' changelog by the current state of development version? Mostly DirectX and deeply Windows 7 specific functions?
  3. Windows Error Reporting component, right on the mark, that's what Wer means in the function name beginning.
  4. Any GPU, not even mentioning the driver, requires a very precise timer that can peek down to milliseconds. No matter if that's NVIDIA, AMD, Intel or S3 Chrome 540 GTX.
  5. That's quite unusal, WGC cannot be spoofed to Windows 7. Is that WMI messing with me?
  6. This is a part of DirectX 11.2 runtime which is available in Windows 8.1 and newer.
  7. I'm curious where have you found the 16:9 version of 'Professional' wallpaper on your profile banner. Or have you made one by yourself?

      Can you make one in 16:10 aspect ratio (1920x1200), please? I'll be really happy to see one with Windows XP Professional logo and respective blue-ish color. :rolleyes:

      Maybe later, TBH I don't have the feeling of "extending Windows XP wallpaper" nowadays, so I'll better make it when I'm interested. I might post it on r/wallpapers too, so more people would have the chance to see it.

      I hope you post it on r/windowsxp as well.

  8. 1.5 GB per process (2 GB in Vista and higher), the actual RAM limit is around 3.2 GB unless you enable PAE.
  9. You can't run Discord client downloaded from its official website yet, but you might want to use it through web browser instead.
  10. Wargaming.net Game Center (x64) v22.02.00.9193 confirmed to be working with the Extended Kernel released on July 27, 2022. World of Tanks 1.17.1 is still not working due to lack of DirectX 11.1 interface, while enCore RT v0.2 is working flawlessly, yet crash at medium preset.
  11. KERNELOL.DLL is no longer needed at SysWOW64?
  12. I got full-screen notifications about upcoming retirement of Windows 8.1 support when I installed the latest Monthly Rollup. Having an option to uninstall this mess and not install at all is great, so I keep installing security-only equivalents of these updates.
  13. So my prerequsites are completely vanila Windows Vista SP2 installation I should update through Windows Update somehow or an update package I'm not aware of? After complete update procedure, what should be done? Just test if it does not refuse to boot?
  14. I can guarantee whatever I do on my websites will work almost flawlessly both in browsers requiring extended kernel (and even ones which don't).
  15. I have my old i5-4570 bench nearby, if it has anything useful for Vista, let me know. Got the specs (datasheets) on Intel Series 3 chipsets, well, that's true, but from what the community says over on MacRumors, there is no need to panic at least on P35 chipset, which is used on my GA-P35-S3G mobo. But all those Intel ME or AMD PSP things don't bother me much as I don't process any highly confidential or top-secret machinery things on my home computer. If I did, then I'd care cutting/disabling this out. Fingerprinting? To be fair, I have some experience over web developing, and to my perspective, fingerprinting is barely possible to avoid unless you visit websites that explicitly don't run any analytics through JS or cookies.
  16. Can you name anything from this list that exists in this God forsaken LGA775 socket stub? Are we talking about year 2009 or 2015?
  17. Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 was released in Q1'09, so, yeah. The error does not appear in default Vista kernel, anyway. 'Execute Disable Bit', or NX bit. It has nothing to do with copy protections or antiviruses.
  18. Do I need to do that for System32 as well, or SysWOW64 is enough? I'm running on x64 system.
  19. Fifty-fifty. In some cases, applications continue to crash with BEX error at WerFault log.
  20. NVIDIA G-SYNC is a technology for monitors with variable refresh rate that adjusts refresh rate on demand to avoid tearing. Those are framebuffer capturing libraries, I wouldn't touch that personally, as I use application streaming through NVIDIA GameStream sometimes. https://steamcommunity.com/groups/homestream/discussions/0/451850849186356998/?l=czech.
  21. Dr.Web Security Space 12 (the current version) is backwards compatible down to Windows XP. If your license gets expired, you won't receive database updates but active protection will remain in active state.
  22. So I've managed to install the the June 10 release of Extended kernel, and... everything goes wrong. First, I got kernelol.dll error. Is it supposed to be the old kernel32.dll hanging in System32 and SysWOW64 directories? At least I can confirm that Vivaldi 4.0 installer is starting with some issues, if I set 6.1.7601 version in osver.ini to global section, it starts up correctly, but says that the installer's archive was damaged and the installation will be aborted. Anyway, the extracted one from the installer works fine. I have even reverted the changes made to osver.ini to have correct version showing in the properties.

Could the renamed kernel32.dll to kernelol.dll be the issue?
  23. GeForce 8600 GT here... but I'm afraid I won't be able to ship the GPU to you.
  24. Yes, 342.01 has native support both for Vista and 7, but there is a difference. In Windows 7 I can play modern World of Tanks versions while I can't in Windows Vista. The unmodified drivers package leads to this result. Let me grab my capture card, I'll show what happens in a while. Almost all Kaspersky users (especially the paid ones) are like that, so, yeah, better to leave it be.
  25. Oh, I got the point. I got that piece of nuisance at my job on my workspace and it causes performance dips on regular basis. I don't have permission to switch as the machine is in the domain. Anyway, back on topic. GeForce Game Ready 342.01 driver is not eligible for patching as it doesn't have the required HEX sequence in nvlddmkm.sys, so we can throw away all videocards released before GeForce 400 series.
