KernelEx for Win2000


Recommended Posts


Hey @blackwingcat

First things first: thank you for making it possible to extend the windows 2000's kernel.

I  need to ask you for a word of advice:

What do you recommend to be the order to install your EXKernel versions?

I've installed it by random order v5, v7, v18, v22 but when I installed v29 it broke my system and complained about mscvcp60.dll, so I downloaded it and put it on system32, then I was able to use the system but it was all messed up, like I could not access the Network Connections in Control Panel and Active Desktop features were also messed up, so I'm thinking about installing the system once again.

Can I ignore all the previous versions and install just the 29b exkernel? Does it contains all the previous patches? 

 So the all the process could be described as:

- Install win2k

- Install win2ksp4

- Install Windows Installer 3.0

- Install IE6.0SP1

- Install IE6.0SP1-Commulative Updates

- Install BWC's ExKernel 2.9b

 

Am I on the right track?

Besides when I try to install firefox52esr it complains about supporting only XP and above. How can I passthrough?

Thank you and sorry for the TL;DR text

You should install only the latest extended kernel. Indeed, every succeeding version contains the previous version's patches.

Hi, caiot5

 

I recomend v2.8, because  some people complain the bugs.

But they have not given me enough information , so I can not fix it.

Does mscvcp60.dll problem mean  "only broken the file "?

Extended kernel can install overwrite privious version.

But previous version does not have enough files , so remain some extended file and they effect  your system.

(I allow you install v2.8c  after v2.8e. But It seems to have problem that you install v2.7 after v2.8.)

 

>Am I on the right track?

That is bad :3

ExKernel requires you completed all important Windows 2000 Update.

For example , I think Application and Program in Control Panel should broken.

Is there any chance you could make a version of KEx that would work with a polish version of W2000? I tried the english one but it didn't want to install.

Hi,Tamris.

 

Will you  accept  exKernel v10 ?  

More recent  version would cost too much  :3

Yeah, the Application and Programs in Control Panel is broken indeed. Starting with exKernel v22, I have multiple issues with the system, e.g. I can't see the network connections, etc.

Can you please tell me the step-by-step proccess of how to get the latest exKernel working correctly?

- Install win2k

- Install win2ksp4

- Install Windows Installer 3.0

- Install IE6.0SP1

- Install IE6.0SP1-Commulative Updates

What else need I to install/update BEFORE exkernel v28 installation?

 

Thank you!

Thanks for your answer @blackwingcat

What about the regular Service Pack 4? Do I need to install it aswell or may I stick with your guidelines and install just the SRP1v2 ?

Nevermind. Found that in order to install SRP1v2 I must have SP4 already installed.
I'm trying to follow your step-by-step guide right now.

Thank you again.

I see that there's a significant amount of differences between the most recent version and v10, but if you say that modifying current version is too costly (I get it that it's simply too much work), then yeah, v10 is fine too :). And thank you.

Do you think Internet Explorer 7 and 8 would be possible with this? I would think so if we backport some XP/Vista files. If we end up having to backport Vista files, then maybe IE 9 would work since that is supported on Vista.
