  1. Hey everyone. Is it possible to use Windows8.1 on ryzen 3000? Did anyone tried it? Someone told me that with windows 7 drivers its possible but i don't have ryzen system to test it on
  2. Microsoft relesed preview builds from the Microsoft Edge Canary channel available on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1. This rounds out the initial set of platforms that Microsoft began to roll out back in April, so developers and users alike can try out the next version of Microsoft Edge on every major desktop platform. Microsoft Edge preview builds for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1
  3. Purchased a Dell laptop over a year ago. It came with Windows 8.1, but as I use Linux/Kubuntu, I wiped the disk and did a fresh install of Kubuntu. Later on, I purchased, from Dell, the Windows 8.1 , and my understanding is that this OS is OEM. Now I need to use Windows for data logs. Am contemplating using Oracle VM Virtual Box ( see https://www.virtualbox.org/ ). Then Windows 8.1 can run from with the VM, with Kubuntu as the host. This would be the ONLY computer where Windows 8.1 is installed. Can I legally use the Windows 8.1 in a VM environment ?
  4. September Update has left Windows 8.1 users unable to sign into their Microsoft Account: https://mspoweruser.com/september-update-left-windows-8-1-users-unable-sign-microsoft-account/ Besides this, for me, it has broken DISM and SFC. DISM reports now that the Component Store is corrupted and /ScanHealth /RestoreHealth do not work. I hope Microsoft Windows gets irrelevant and more unpopular and that gets the satanic management fired. I am so sick of updates screwing up working systems. We desperately need new leadership at Microsoft that does not have a mental illness about pushing new fe
  5. Hi. I'm using Windows 8.1 with a custom Windows 7 theme. I use small taskbar + small icons + small start orb + custom clock so that the style looks almost like the big one but in a small version. 1.) What I want to do next is reduce the size of the desktop icons even more. They're already on "small"...but I want them to be about 20% smaller. 2.) And then how do I reduce the size of the start menu (classic shell) by like 20% as well? Thanks.
  6. Hey, 1.) How much RAM can the above mentioned Windows OS see and use? Considering it's going to be 64-bit. 2.) Is the latest DirectX supported in this OS? 3.) Are all of the apps removed? - That's the main reason I'd be going for this embedded operating system because I hate apps and basically all the unwanted and unnecessary features and processes. 4.) Does this OS have any major disadvantages compared to 'Windows 8.1 Professional x64'? (In terms of gaming, browsing, doing casual stuff such as playing back high bit-rate or resolution videos like 4k vids or sound quality,
  7. You can download a 7/8.1/10 ISO from Microsoft using this tool: http://www.msfn.org/2016/09/25/microsoft-windows-office-iso-download-tool-4-00/ Later you can add all required files/folders to make that ISO or USB good for all OEM brands using the tool Project Only - No Query Tool [29.70 MB] from the links in this page: http://pasted.co/de1acca8 read text files inside the download, it is pretty clear.

  8. Because of the UI and UX awfulness of Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10, there have been many people who stayed on Windows 7. I hate stock Windows 8/8.1 very much but after intensive modification by third party apps, especially Classic Shell and others, it becomes somewhat acceptable. So I began comparing it to Windows 7 to evaluate if there were any actual improvements too that were worth upgrading to Windows 8.1. Windows 10 is still extremely awful to the point where it no longer remains an enjoyable experience for long due to forced updates, size of updates being hidden and Microsoft resetting w
  9. 'Sup! I'm starting a new topic because I believe there will be many people like me who have downloaded the Windows 8.1 Update 1, and happened to have its login screen broken with the annoying message of "Your DWM is not compatible with aero glass", making your Windows installation unusable. Also, I don't know the "proper" way of uninstalling Aero Glass. Before installing Windows 8.1 Update 1 I really don't know if there are any registry tricks involved. I did install the Aero Glass using the installer. As I didn't find anything on "Programs and Features", I decided to erase the Aero Glass fo
  10. Windows could not parse or process unattend answer file (c:windows\panther\unattend.xml). Error message during setup is the error I am getting. I am not using MDT, WS or anything fancy for deployment just Windows 8.1 x64 Pro DVD media, WinPE for Windows 8.1 and the Windows 8.1 ADK. I am using the Windows 8.1 WADK/Windows Kits for Windows 8.1 for Image Manager for creating my answer file, using deployment/imaging tool for creating and editing my images, and using the same Windows 8.1 DVD media for my catalog as in my WIM. I have done the best research I'm able to do at the moment and fo
  11. Working with Windows 8.1 and using a USB Verizon 4G LTE Modem as a Windows Broadband device on a mobile asset, and when signal is very low for a period of time the modem will "disconnect" from the VZ network and will not auto connect once the signal gets stronger. The end users are finding this to be inconvenient for them that the modem doesn't auto connect. I'd rather have them keep their eyes on the road then checking the connection. I have researched this on the Verizon site and the internet for answers to remedy this, without success. Is there a registry key or a setting that I might

  13. I would like to install the Windows XP Internet Games in Windows 8.1. I can do this on Windows 7 with the following registry edit. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AppID\{73CFF131-CA3B-4654-9640-0F50B3ABA521}]@="zClientm" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Interface\{55A8CF81-2C24-41F1-95BC-798E93CBB256}]@="IZoneProxy" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Interface\{55A8CF81-2C24-41F1-95BC-798E93CBB256}\ProxyStubClsid]@="{00020424-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Interface\{55A8CF81-2C24-41F1-95BC-798E93CBB256}\Proxy
  14. Easy and detailed instructions. This is better than those Automated Apps like WinReducer and Win Toolkit which usually are buggy. Here you Right click the batch file and choose to run as Admin and then go have coffee. It's that easy. Attached photo is the folder structure to what we will create. This guide will slipstream all updates and clean up the image and convert the image to and from ESD<--->WIM Prepare and Slipstream Updates In to a Windows 8.1 .wim or .esd Image (Including Update 1) What you need: install.wim image file from the Windows installation media. If it is an install.
  15. We know the bug in Windows 8.1 in certain dialogues (When delete a file/folder, copy…) Exploring a bit I discovered that deleting all icons size 256x256px in imageres.dll (and replace it) the bug go away. But it is exhausting eliminate about 300 icons for any app/soft. Any interested in investigating this error and solved? Another way to fix it's set the display/screen size (dpi) to 200% (maximum) , but it 's all a bit bigger in sight. * Sorry for my english.
  16. I've just installed SIB+ on my PC running windows 8.1 but it isn't showing "Recent Documents" when I press the start key - it just shows "Documents". I had SIB on my previous PC and it automatically showed Recent Documents in the listing. How can I add it on? Any help appreciated as that is a brilliant feature! Thanks, Gill

  18. I'm having an issue with a Win 8.1 box that constantly crashes every few seconds when accessing the desktop, or anything else that needs the desktop to run. The error in the Application log is: Faulting application name: explorer.exe, version: 6.3.9600.17249, time stamp: 0x53e160b9 Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.3.9600.17055, time stamp: 0x532954fb Exception code: 0xe06d7363 Fault offset: 0x0000000000005bf8 Faulting process id: 0x7e0 Faulting application start time: 0x01d01441f1a856d5 Faulting application path: C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\syste
  19. Nuhi suggested that any further discussion of the new tool should take place here on the vLite forums, for now, so here goes. I have a suggestion for the name of the new tool. nLite was such a success, I think the new tool should retain the nLite name in some form. My suggestion is nLiteX, pronounced En Light Ex. It keeps the familiarity with nLite, avoids the problem of adding 7, 8, or numbers beyond that to the name. It also implies a new, expanded nLite with new capabilities, and ensures that the tool won't need to be renamed for future versions of Windows.
  20. Hello all I've got a little problem with Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1 since the august security update for IE : I can't use RemoteApp in the Remote Web Access !

  21. Hello, since I install the Update 1 on my Windows 8.1 PCs, I have a bug with mouse with all of them wich have dual screen. If I move my mouse normaly (not fast) to go to an other screen, it is blocked on the border of the screen where it was (and don't go to other screen). To go to an other screen, I must move the mouse very fast and it's very anoying. The problem appears when I open one Modern UI app. If, after boot, I don't open any Modern UI app, I don't have this bug but If I open one, the bug appears and it still present even if I close all Modern UI apps. I have 3 PCs with dual screen, a
  22. I was wondering what other tweaks besides changing a few things on Windows 8.1, such as folder options, disabling services, removing useless features of the Programs and Features under control panel, what else can make your system run even faster, as most of things I run into on the internet are the ovious things to remove and to me it's boring since I already know that knowelege.
  23. Hello again, I recently installed Microsoft Windows 8.1 but I'm noticing something very odd, I'm starting to get bad application performance everything I run seems to run slow like my hardware is not powerful enough though when I ran it before I did not encounter this problem. I checked the task manager though it clams nothing is really taking up alot of memory, though when I run Adobe Premiere, Firefox (Unoffical x64 Build), and AmaRecTV (playing my Nintendo Wii) usually I am able to run all three without any problems at all, rebooting does not solve the problem it's still slow. Though If I
  24. Hello I have prepared a sysprepped image of Windows 8.1. After deploying the image, the start panel shortcuts to control panel items (which appear after searching such as Device Manager) are not working. It shows that the item could not be found in C:\Users\Administrator\...... The current user account is a local account while the administrator was used to create the sysprep image (used Ctrl + Shift +F3 just before OOBE). The items which it tries to access are located in C:\Users\Devesh\AppData\Local\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Indexed\Settings\en-GBwhile i
