  1. No, .NET 5 and 6 are based on ".NET Core" not framework, so you still need 4.x Yes it is, but not as much as other Microsoft products https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/core/tools/telemetry I successfully installed Microsoft Windows Desktop Runtime - 5.0.11x64 on Windows 7
  2. Hi, Is it possible to run touch screen related components from Windows XP Tablet PC Edition on Windows XP x64?
  3. Yesterday one of MSFN users posted a link to a YouTube video on this forum. You might want to take a look at it
  4. You really could have said that earlier. Assuming those 2 reports of partial success are just placebo effects and that you have tested this on multiple Haswell boards, this information can be called "fake". Until now, no one has proved it to be true or false and I couldn't myself either as I don't have a proper hardware to do this.
  5. This video is rather outdated. Follow the guide here: https://msfn.org/board/topic/183046-guide-vista-extended-kernel-installation/ Make sure you have all the necessary windows updates installed and don't forget about running the "bcdedit /set {current} nointegritychecks yes" command if you are replacing files manually. btw: Windows Vista has problems with running properly on Haswell or newer Intel CPUs (this includes i5 8250u), they are described here: https://msfn.org/board/topic/177509-windows-vista-intel-haswell-issues-documentation/ On Betawiki there is an information that those problems were solved/reduced in the 6003 version of hal.dll, but it's still not known if the information is correct. You are welcome to test this. KB4474419 is one of updates that contain the 6003 hal.dll (it requires KB4493730 to be installed first). You need a 6003 update to install the extended kernel anyway.
  6. As earlier posts in this thread suggest that Haswell+ and Ryzen problems are caused by the same bug in HAL, I decided to test if the issue was solved in the 6003 version of hal.dll (see this: https://msfn.org/board/topic/181612-wip-windows-vista-extended-kernel/page/106/?tab=comments#comment-1206074) I installed KB4474419 and hal.dll was upgraded to version 6003. Result: Nothing changed, BSODs are still occurring as they were. This means that the article on Beta Wiki was indeed a fake news or (less likely) that Haswell+ and Ryzen problems are in fact unrelated. PC specs: AMD Ryzen 5 1600AF, B350 MB with April 2018 BIOS version, Nvidia 1050TI, Windows Vista x64
  7. Running CPU-Z on Windows Vista Extended Kernel: Normally, if you have the extended kernel installed CPU-Z will stuck on 15% when loading. I've just found out that to solve this problem you can simply redirect cpuz.exe to a vanilla Vista kernel32.dll First apply the redirection reg file, than put vanilla vista kernel32.dll in the cpuz.exe.local directory (just like for Windows Sidebar)
  8. To avoid making Service Pack 3 for Server 2008, Microsoft was repeatedly putting those updated 6003 files in every bigger update they released. As extended kernel requires 6003 system files, not a security fix of a single update, almost any monthly rollup (or just bigger update) released around September 2019 will allow you to install the Extended Kernel (SHA-2 support might be needed too, but I'm not sure)
  9. It didn't work with 4.7.2 so I think Microsoft changed the system requirements on purpose. Updates that i had installed: all Vista updates till 2017 + KB4019478 - D3Dcompiler-x64 + SHA-2 updates KB4039648-v2,KB4493730, KB4474419 + Extended Kernel The "4.6.2" text next to "Server 2008 SP2" was added quite recently: http://web.archive.org/web/20210506200116/https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/get-started/system-requirements http://web.archive.org/web/20211006034517/https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/get-started/system-requirements
  10. I can confirm everything that you are saying. First I tried with my old .NET 4.6.2 offline setup that was signed on 15.07.2016 with both SHA-1 and 256 and I got the "unsupported OS" error. Than i downloaded a new installer from Microsoft, and it worked! I'm going to try 4.7.2 next
  11. I solved it by following this guide: https://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport/comments/6gajcs/fix_for_activation_context_generation_failed_the/ Here is my exported registry: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SMI\WinSxS Settings\amd64_microsoft-windows-settings_31bf3856ad364e35_none_5e7b0013834d1c8b\6.0.6000.16386\Settings] "disableTheming"="xsd:string" "dpiAware"="xsd:string" "autoElevate"="xsd:string" Note that numbers in the path might be different for you. Many dependences are still missing: user32.dll: CreateWindowInBand, GetCurrentImputMessageSource, GetWindowBand and there are tons of missing API-MS-WIN-CORE files:
  12. I tried to run Windows 8 task manager (much better that Vista/7 one) on Windows Vista with extended kernel and got this error: Translation: Cannot launch the application, because it's simultaneous configuration is invalid. More details can be found in the application's event log. Event log screenshot: Translation: Cannot generate the activation context for [path]. The setting http://schemas.microsoft.com/SMI/2005/WindowsSettings^autoElevate is not registered. Does anyone know how to "register" this thing? (I have no idea what "simultaneous configuration" or "activation context" are ) EDIT: At first I thought that "WindowsSettings" is somehow UWP related, but it looks like it's not, because the website above was created in 2009 http://web.archive.org/web/20090625053858/http://schemas.microsoft.com/SMI/2005/WindowsSettings^autoElevate. It has been broken for 12 years now.
  13. I used to have .net framework 4.7.2 installed on Vista. Some programs displayed an error "A programs has stopped working", but I could minimize it (not close) and the application worked fine (for example BlueStacks3), others like Visual Studio 2010 Express didn't run at all. Currently I use 4.6.1 (officially supported on Server 2008), but 4.6.2 is stable too. Most modern programs still support those versions.
  14. Thanks for reply. It looks like i had a spelling error in my osver.ini file. No hex editing is needed!
  15. Today i tried Firefox 91.3.0 ESR on Windows Vista with the new extended kernel. It looks like there is some problem with font rendering... (Same issue with Firefox 94, Firefox 78 works fine) Does anyone know how to solve this?
