KernelEx Apps Compatibility List (New)


 Share

Recommended Posts

If the app is calling ExpandEnvironmentStringsForUser, replacing kernelex\userenv.dll with M()zart's version should fix the %systemroot% expansion problem.

But Kernel32, Ntdll, and Shlwapi also contain environment string expansion functions so in all cases adding this to Autoexec.bat should also work:
  set systemroot=C:\windows

Unfortunately, the app shouldn't be assuming Program Files is in your SystemRoot folder.

So try this workaround instead to reference off the current folder (real Program Files):
set systemroot=..

I was working on Userenv.dll just last week and discovered that M()zart's version is actually much better than the Wine code used in KernelEx. It's just missing a couple of stubs which are easy to add. When I discovered the environment issue is much broader, I temporarily stopped work.

Audacity audio editor v2.1.3, released 2017-Mar-17, working ok with KernelEx updates (v4.5.2016.16).

Note that the website says this will be "the last version of Audacity that will officially support Windows XP", so i don't know what that will mean for future KEx compatibility.

Does the problem still exist? Did you try 7.4.1 or 7.4.2. Version 7.4.2 requires

[Kernel32.dll]

GetLogicalProcessorInformation=

GetNumaHighestNodeNumber=

QueryDepthSList=

in the Kstub.ini.

KexBeta17 already supports these API's. The Toolbar is back with 7.4.2.

Hi Schwups, thank you very much for the report !! Had to remove two reactos file's  (dbghelp.dll and crypt32.dll) and that fixed it.
It seem to be still necessary to delete the dll's from it's plugin-folder but it is otherwise running fine. Toolbar is back, yeah !!
Thanks again and thanks Jumper.

@ Schwups. When you have the time can you try to open a write-protected file with notepad++ ?? .txt, .ini or whatever. Does it chrash too on ME ?

Yes, 7.4.2 crashes by the attempt to open a write-protected txt file here too. It doesn't crash on Vista. So probably it isn't a new bug of notepad++.

GetLogicalProcessorInformation comes first with Vista and XPSP3. Hence the OS requirements go up for notepad++.

Last version of FFDShow (v1.3.4533.0 / ffdshow_rev4533_20140929_clsid.exe, ) is working fine, I am using  Kernelex 4.5.2016.18 (Kernelex.dll v17; without Kstubs). Installer needs a NT compatibility mode, I used XPSP2.

All four (!) configure-shortcuts are not working. By trial and error I found following workaround by editing "Target" in the shortcuts. Later I found that this workaround was reported already in June 2006 on MSFN, so the problem is much older than KernelEx. See also Drugwash (2013) and Loblo (2011). Schwups (2013) tried updating Rundll32.exe.

C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL32.EXE ffdshow.ax,configureAudio

C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL32.EXE ffdshow.ax,configure

C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ff_vfw.dll,configureVFW

C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL32.EXE ffdshow.ax,configureDXVA

All configure panels seems to be fine, but I didn't test VFW and DXVA.

About Rundll32.exe: I used the original 4.10.1998 version.

Image Eye 7.6 --- KernelEx 4.5.2 (WinXP SP2 Mode)

https://www.fmjsoft.com/imageeye.html

Alternate download @: https://www.sac.sk/files.php?d=5&l=I
ieye76.zip

Nice simple image viewer with ability to edit, copy, move, enhance pictures, and so on. Loads images surprisingly fast too, even on my old Pentium III.

Notice anything different?

Most parts of 9x service packs I would like to use like the VXDs for viewing/reporting up to 2TB of drive space on local and network drives and partitioning/formating without errors with Paragon etcetera. Remember XVDs are not interchangeable between Win98 and WinME.

Looks like I have placed this in the wrong thread by accident it was supposed to be in kext-diy-kernelex-extensions

Yeah, I don't see Windows Millennium Edition Reporting that it has DirectX 11 installed everyday!

:D

Will DirectX 11 install on 9x!?

~♥Aiko♥Chan♥~ I installed directx_Jun2010_redist several years ago, it updates files finishes but DX10 & 11 files do not transfer. Afterwards if the files are there and working then DX11 is reported by CPU-Z and DXdiag. The DX11 happened with KEX22 when going back to KEX18 then the reported DX vs is 9c. I have utilized some of ReactOS, I will report further. I do not know if it was fully functional though, see MSFN_Here for some of the idea.

I will continue in the correct thread, my apologies.
