App Compatibility Launcher doesn't work?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I installed Windows 2000 SP4, and after that, I installed Unofficial Service Pack 5.1 and after that the Unofficial Update Rollup v11. But when I start the Application Compatibility Launcher, and drag the Firefox Setup, or Palemoon Setup, or SeaMonkey Setup in it, it keeps saying I need Windows XP?

Once you drag the exe file into the Application Compatibility Launcher, be sure to click the bar at the top of the Application Compatibility Launcher window (to “select” it, if you will) before you press the Enter key.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I did that. But it still shows me the message I need Windows XP or higher.

Hi.

Firefox 41's installer name was changed from setup.exe to setup-stub.exe.

Try to set it compatibility mode XP.

My test.

 

Is that correct?  Anyway, here is the link I use to the full installer:

 EDIT:  I tested Firefox 41.0 dragging the exe to the Application Compatibility Launcher, and it offline-installed fine.

Mine looks like this with Firefox 41.0 on W2K Pro from tomasz86’s November 2014 HFSLIP, UUR and .net frameworks.  I don’t recall which kernel is used there.  No version of Firefox had ever been installed on this machine before:

I guess the “stub” version is a problem.
