  1. Thanks, this worked... can you explain more? Does this substitute a component of DirectX for something else? However, more errors are on the horizon. I don't know if replacing this file, which does exist in the System32 directory, with a version taken from Windows 10 would work and would be a wise thing to do.
  2. Latest version of MKVToolNix – Matroska tools for Linux/Unix and Windows doesn't launch on Windows 7 anymore. Last version to work thus far is 66.0. Here is the changelog: https://mkvtoolnix.download/doc/NEWS.md The error I get is as follows.
  3. The latest version to run OK seems to be 3.86, later versions give an error that the Process Monitor driver cannot be loaded.
  4. Some Syinternals utilities no longer work on Windows 7. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/ I have tested TCPView 4.x x64 and the latest version of Process Monitor, which do not work However, others continue to run fine even with the updated interface, although system requirements are listed as Windows 8.1 or higher. Unfortunately there is a lack of information on the site about which versions are the last good to work on various operating systems, and older versions are not available for download.
  5. So I ended up downloading the missing dll from dll-files.com and placing copies of both 32-bit and 64-bit versions in the respective Windows system directories. Managed to install Vidcoder 7 successfully! (Whether there might be issues with the software when actually using it is to be determined).
  6. Vidcoder v7 now refuses to install on Windows 7. https://github.com/RandomEngy/VidCoder/releases/tag/v7.12 It uses .NET 6.0. It also uses HandBrake 1.5, which requires Windows 10: https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/1.5.0/technical/system-requirements.html The following error appears upon launching the installer: I posted about the issue here: https://github.com/RandomEngy/VidCoder/discussions/974 It seems this issue occurs with other software as well, and perhaps can be fixed? https://github.com/dotnet/core/issues/6976 https://github.com/NickeManarin/ScreenToGif/issues/1077
  7. Also, I don't want to flood this thread with OneDrive discussion, so perhaps we can make a separate topic for this.
  8. Wow, thanks for your efforts! I'll be glad to understand better how this works, I assume OneDriveSetup.exe uses the "local" kernel32.dll. I've been unsuccessful following the instructions thus far. Get the following error upon launching OneDriveSetup.exe.
  9. Thanks a lot! Seems that the current version 22.002.0103.0004 does not contain the mentioned hex strings, though. Could you take a look at it? How did you determine those were the ones to change in the previous version? The reason for me is simple - we use OneDrive quite a lot at work. While I have a Win10 work laptop, I also keep my core files on my home PC machine, which has relatively recent hardware (Intel Z390 chipset) and on which I run Windows 7. The app has worked with no problems thus far. It's a shameful behavior by MS to deliberately break products in this manner. Then again, they did something similar together with Intel where they decided to not allow people to install Windows 7 on anything higher than Skylake.
  10. So the last version of the OneDrive app to run on Windows 7 is 21.230.1107.0004: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/onedrive-release-notes-845dcf18-f921-435e-bf28-4e24b95e5fc0 Tried to install more recent versions, but the installer gives an error: I suspect the app itself would actually run fine on Windows 7 and that this is just an artificial block; maybe someone more knowledgeable could check.
  11. I am not sure that it's IE 11... I used the procedure described here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/update-to-enable-tls-1-1-and-tls-1-2-as-default-secure-protocols-in-winhttp-in-windows-c4bd73d2-31d7-761e-0178-11268bb10392
  12. More info on OneDrive here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-onedrive-blog/end-of-support-for-onedrive-desktop-application-on-windows-7-8/ba-p/2929066 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/onedrive-sync-app-no-longer-supported-on-windows-7-8-or-8-1-a3bd41c7-5f82-42c3-aa46-de782581be2a Really kind of a shame that this is happening... why break something if it works? They recently changed security requirements and TLS 1.2 is now required to be able to sign in and synchronize files. Windows 7 is fine with this after installing proper updates and modifying registry settings.
  13. Vidcoder v6 not officially supported anymore on Windows 7. https://github.com/RandomEngy/VidCoder/releases/tag/v6.41 The minimum version of Windows supported is now Windows 10. Windows 7/8 are now "run at your own risk." Seems to run fine thus far.
  14. Since the February 16 version of New Moon 28, there are two separator lines in the Help menu above "About New Moon" (screenshot attached).
  15. I can confirm this... For me, it works OK with New Moon 27.9.1, but not version 28.
  16. With the latest version of New Moon 27.9.1a1 (20180818), Google Maps now work for me.
  17. Just tried it now, and indeed, the problem does not happen there. :) Has Google implemented something which is not compatible with the older version?
  18. So here is a screenshot... the memory usage did not exceed 400 MB while loading Google Maps. The computer has 2 GB RAM. So I doubt it's a memory problem. As I mentioned previously, the map does show briefly at first, but then goes into black. Street View doesn't work either. Has no one else encountered this issue? Is there a configuration preference that I could try to modify that might help?
  19. But it did not happen with 52.9. I have 2 GB of RAM on the machine. I will test again and take a look at memory consumption while loading Google Maps.
  20. Hi everyone, I have run into a problem with Google Maps using the latest build of New Moon 27.9. on my Windows XP SP3 machine. The map can be seen at first, but then, as more data is loaded, the map starts to flicker and only a black screen remains. Has anyone else encountered this problem? What could be the cause? It's working OK with Firefox 52.9 ESR.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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?
  25. 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?
