  1. Thank you! I got confused because https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=121721&clcid=0x409&arch=x64&eng= needs "x64", while the version-specific link needs "amd64"
  2. What is the link for x64 version? (is is not https://definitionupdates.microsoft.com/download/DefinitionUpdates/VersionedSignatures/AM/1.367.386.0/1.1.19200.6/x64/mpas-fe.exe nor https://definitionupdates.microsoft.com/download/DefinitionUpdates/VersionedSignatures/AM/1.367.386.0/1.1.19200.6/x64/mpas-fex64.exe)
  3. To solve this you have to open firefox.exe in CFFexplorer, go to "optional header" and change value of MinorSubsystemVersion from 0001 to 0000.
  4. I can confirm the new version works
  5. Hi, I've tried your installer on Vmware and at first got this error (maybe because I'm running Polish language version): After removing software checking part of the setup.bat, I was able to proceed with the installation. On reboot(s) another error popped up: So after making sure that all extended kernel files are in system32 directory, I booted my virtual machine into a Vista installation image and launched automatic startup repair. The tool not only solved the problem (probably by removing the installer from autostart), but also retested all permissions for system file back to their defaults, so I didn't have to do it myself and in the end the extended kernel was working as intended. Good job @Bizzbob (no sarcasm) because it's definitely an improvement over the original installer, although it still need some tweaking. It's also highly possible that I'm getting all those errors just because I have Polish edition of Vista. I'll put a link to your post in the guide.
  6. Installing Pale Moon on Windows Vista Extended Kernel: If you want to have a Start Menu folder and entires in "default programs" panel, then first install Palemoon version 27.9.4 and remove all contents of %programfiles%\Pale Moon folder Download current x64 version of Pale Moon (31.0.0 at the time of writing). Extract the installer with 7-zip and copy all contents of "core" folder to %programfiles%\Pale Moon Delete api-ms-win-core-memory-l1-1-0 in %programfiles%\Pale Moon Run palemoon.exe, enjoy If you want to use Pale Moon on Windows XP or vanilla Vista, check @roytam1's fork called New Moon https://msfn.org/board/topic/182647-my-browser-builds-part-3/
  7. I've just tested Firefox 100.0b9 and 101.0a1 (released today) on: Windows 7 sp1 with no updates newer than 2015 installed (KB3033929 SHA-2 update) Vista 6003 with extended kernel and KB4474419 SHA-2 update Both versions work on Windows 7 On Vista only firefox 100 works, while 101 displays the following error when any tab is opened: I don't know if this error is SHA-2 related at all as Vista actually utilizes a newer SHA-2 update.
  8. Copy the following text into notepad and save as .reg file, and than apply it Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\Explorer\SystemNotification\.current] @="C:\\Windows\\Media\\chord.wav" You can swap C:\\Windows\\Media\\chord.wav with path to any other .wav file you want (use double \)
  9. Do those programs work also on unmodified vista? (I'm wondering if I should include them in the list that contains only programs that need extended kernel to run)
  10. Intel Pentium B980 also doesn't have virtualization. Before changing the BIOS you have to search the internet for CPUs supported by Asus X55A and make sure it's even possible to swap them since on some laptops the cpu is soldered to the motherboard. I wouldn't recommend messing with bios before you are sure everything will work and I can't help you with this as I don't have Asus X55A.
  11. Hi, It looks like the cpu that comes with your laptop by default: Intel Celeron 1000M doesn't support any virtualization technology, so running any x64 OS in virtual machines is not possible and performance on any virtual machines will be significantly lower. https://www.notebookcheck.net/Asus-X55A-SO223D.102423.0.html https://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Celeron-1000M-Notebook-Processor.87690.0.html You may consider upgrading your cpu to at least i3 (still has to be ivy bridge), but first search the internet to see if it's possible for your laptop model. Keep in mind that most likely you will have to change your BIOS
  12. Another thing to consider is that office 2013+ uses sppsvc - a Windows Product Activation service introduced in Windows 7 which would have to be backported without breaking Vista's activation system. (Office 2010 had it's own licensing system), and I'm not sure if this will be possible in the near future.

  14. You can easily get old versions from webarchive: https://web.archive.org/web/20150219225823/https://live.sysinternals.com/
  15. There were at least 3 Windows 7 updates that claimed to add/update SHA-2 support in Windows 7: KB2949927 from 2014 - https://support.microsoft.com/kb/2949927 KB3033929 from 2015 - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3033929 KB4474419 from 2019 - https://support.microsoft.com/help/4474419 And some more info here: https://aka.ms/sha1deprecation Interestingly this Microsoft article mentions the 2019 update as the first one
  16. https://msfn.org/board/guidelines/ 1a I cannot provide links to modified Microsoft binaries so all requests for that will be ignored
  17. The link for the new version is the same as for the previous version
  18. This is about the same question, since changing UAC configuration restores the old searchbar, but regardless your tweak is much better since it has no side effects so thanks for sharing it!
  19. I've never got this error myself, but this might be because i've never had 32bit extended kernel installed, so you can try installing the extended kernel manually and skip copying 32bit files or restore your original 32bit files from .bak files and see if it helps.
  20. Hi, read https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-search-box-in-windows-10-file-explorer-this-pc/ This worked for me in Windows 10 after i removed cortana. Unfortunately this also makes your UAC disabled.
  21. Try disconnecting from the internet to install Windows using local account instead of Microsoft account.
  22. It includes powrprof.dll and powrprofx86.dll so probably it has patches for AMD 15.6 drivers integrated. I've installed the x64 version and everything seems to work fine
  23. Yes extensions work fine in Firefox. I only use chrome (Ungoogled chromium) for sites that have compatibility problems.
  24. Extensions don't work with even earlier versions of Chromium on Vista so this one should be no exception. BTW. by 9.x and 100.x you mean version (ex. 100.0.4868.0) or build revision (ex. 966626)
