  1. So do I understand correctly that after installing KB4052978 manually, Windows (Microsoft) Update will work again and give me results of the update check? What exactly happened that the update check doesn't finish, when a few months ago it worked? In your post, you wrote that "updates this month take a long time", from this sentence it is not clear whether in your case the update check actually finished.
  2. Is anyone facing a problem with a never-ending "checking for update" status? I am using Windows XP Professional with Microsoft Update. My Office installations include Office 2000 and Office 2010. I last installed some Office 2010 security updates in September. Though I applied the POSReady registry hack, I have not installed any of the updates intended for POSReady 2009 (only KB4019276 manually). I have tried deleting the authcab.cab file, and also cleaning the SoftwareDistribution\Download folder, but that has not helped.
  3. They did mention some licensed content in their reply... I might try to get back to them at some point. Thanks for looking into it.
  4. That works indeed. Here is the link to the website - livestream: http://www.ceskatelevize.cz/ct24#live It doesn't work at least on my computer. It works with IE and Flash. I wonder what I should write to the customer service?
  5. I have another question, there is a website (Czech TV - www.ct24.cz) which currently uses the MPEG Dash protocol (in contrast to progressive download) for HTML5 video playback. At least this is the reply I got from their customer service. On Windows XP, this protocol doesn't work and no video is loading. Thus the only way to view their content is with Internet Explorer 8 through Adobe Flash Player. Would there be any way to make MPEG Dash work under Windows XP?
  6. Getting back to my post... indeed with the build by roytam1, H.264 videos work just by copying the LAV dll files into the program folder. Again, why is this not sufficient with the build by Feodor2 and the k-lite codec pack needs to be installed?
  7. Thanks, but can you please be more technical and explain why the codec pack is needed? I do already have MPC-HC as well as the Combined Community Codec Pack, so I do already have LAV Filters installed. Or do some more files need to be registered?
  8. I am not passing the YouTube HTML5 test for H.264, even after copying the three .dll files from lav.7z to the New Moon program folder. Are there any other steps necessary to get H.264 playback? (I am using the latest build of New Moon by Feodor2).
  9. Portable devices via MTP driver in Windows 98

    Joe, thanks very much for pointing out your notes on MTP/PTP experimentation. Having obtained the 'wmdmcmd' utility from the MTP porting kit package (version 10) I can confirm that indeed, I can now manage files on my device via command line. I guess this is the best possible option at the moment for my Windows 98 machine. If I want to be more comfortable, I will use a computer with Windows XP. Thanks again! P.S. How stupid of Android developers, however, to knock out usb mass storage support on purpose...
  10. Portable devices via MTP driver in Windows 98

    Hi Joe, I wonder if installing the Service Pack would help me. Basically, I followed these instructions: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/171263/mtp-devices-in-windows-me/ I do already have the MTP support pack installed, and I was also able to successfully install a driver for my phone, i.e. it is detected in Device Manager. However, unlike Windows XP (and according to the link above, also Windows Me), Windows 98 does NOT show up the MTP device in Windows Explorer. Therefore, I am not able to browse and manipulate with the files on my device. Is there any piece of software that would enable me to do this? Windows Media Player 9 is not helpful. Thanks!
  11. Hi everyone, I own a HTC One S smartphone. I was able to transfer files from and to this device via standard USB Mass Storage driver on my Windows 98 machine. However, the developers of Android killed the option to connect via USB Mass Storage with the Android 4.1 update. It is now possible to transfer files only through MTP (Media Transfer Protocol). However, MTP support is basically non-existent in Windows 98. I was able to obtain the MTP porting kit and after overcoming some difficulties, I successfully installed a custom driver for my device. I am now able to see the device in Windows Media Player 9, when I go to the "Copy to CD or device" option. I can see the folders on my phone correctly... however, Windows Media Player would only enable me to copy files to the device, not vice versa. In Windows 98, even with the MTP package installed, it is not possible see portable devices in Windows Explorer. Is there any software capable of giving me access to the files on the device? Thanks!
  12. KernelEx 4.5.2

    It would be great to implement changes so that the latest version of Opera can be used on Windows 98, including fixes for opening links from external programs (which currently crash Opera).
  13. KernelEx 4.5.2

    It can be used with my DLLHOOK redirector. Hello rloew, I e-mailed you a few weeks ago, but maybe you did not receive my message. I was wondering whether you plan further development of your DLLHOOK software, for example to add new functions or to maintain compatibility with newer versions of KernelEx. Also, is there a listing of software possible to run on Windows 98 (SE) using DLLHOOK? Thanks!
  14. KernelEx 4.5.2

    Hi everyone, the newest version of sumatrapdf (2.0.1) no longer works with KernelEx. The error given is the following: "The LIBMUPDF.DLL file is linked to the missing export NTDLL.DLL:vsprintf."
  15. KernelEx 4.5.2

    With the latest version of Flash Player (11.2.), the installer gives the following error: "...missing export ADVAPI32.DLL:ChangeServiceConfig2W". The last version of Flash Player to work with KernelEx 4.5 is thus, for the time being, 11.1. Edit: Apologies, I just noticed there is a separate thread regarding this issue...
