sp193 Posted January 10, 2010 Share Posted January 10, 2010 (edited) Some programs like utorrent, which have previously support Windows 9x, have now discontinued Windows 9x support.For utorrent, only Windows NT is support (Windows 2000 and XP are also Windows NT builds).With KernelEX, some of these programs will work. However, I've noticed that the networking parts of some programs built for Windows NT will NOT work properly on Windows 9x.I've done a high-level comparison on the Winsock 2 API (And compared the oridinal numbers), but I can't see any difference in functions between the Winsock layer of Windows NT and Windows 9x.I know that newer versions of Windows NT (2000 and XP) have extra functions built into it's Winsock 2 layer, but Windows NT has a layer that's similar to Windows 95's Winsock2 update.Any ideas on why such NT-only programs don't work on properly Windows 9x?Utorrent 1.85 and later may give a "hostname not found" error (Error 404 I believe), and Orbit Downloader's grabber will not be able to capture streams.For some of us, using utorrent 1.72 is not an option as some ISPs have sandvine to brutally throttle(Or totally block) connections.
