Looks like VirtualBox 6.0 has been released yesterday, I wonder if it still runs on Vista? Didn't see anything about Vista in the changelog so there's always a chance it still does, can't check myself sadly since it's only for 64 bit OSs, and the last release for 32 bit ones is 5.2 which apparently will be supported till July 2020.

Notepad++ (FREEOSONG)

... I can confirm that the most current release (v7.6.1) continues to be Vista SP2 compatible:

Notepad2-mod (FREEOSONG)

Notepad2-mod hasn't been updated in a long while; its github repo is marked as archived, last commit was pushed on Aug 15, 2017. So it is safe to assume that this project has become "abandonware", with the latest official release v4.2.25.998 becoming in essence the very last (final) one (still compatible with Windows XP SP3 + Vista SP2):

Notepad3 (FREEOSUNSONG)

As you say, NotePad3 does not officially support the Vista OS (and the new owners, Rizonesoft, also dropped WinXP support):

Requirements Windows® 7, 8 / 8.1, 10 (32 and 64 bit)

However, the last stable release v4.18.512.992 apparently runs fine on Vista SP2:

Most sadly, the rosey story ends up here :( ; during the autumn, the dev team moved on to a new compiler with revised compiler settings/kernel optimisations so that the new branch 5 released builds (currently in the Release Candidate dev stage) are not capable of being launched under Vista, due to missing API calls:

So, version 4.18.512.992 should be marked as the last Vista compatible one ; obviously, the maintainers themselves have no intention of restoring Vista support to the app, but it is my gut belief - without, that is, browsing the code itself - that, again, we may have to deal with an artificial Vista block; the app is open source, so hopefully the code could be recompiled targeting again the Vista OS... Here's hoping... ;)

Happy to report that Virtualbox 6.0 final works just fine in Windows Vista :yes:

Thanks for the very informative post as always, VistaLover :) Updated the list to reflect this information:

Rufus can still be made to run on Vista without much effort. I've put the binary on GitHub.

Today's the last day that Steam officially supports XP/Vista. If you want to use Steam in 2019 and later, don't forget to make a backup of the steam folder and use the "-noverifyfiles" command to stop Steam from auto-updating itself. You can still download games and etc.. The only thing that might happen is that you can no longer use the store and the friend feature might break soon as well..

Where exactly do I put it? And what would happen if I don't use it? Tbh all I care about is playing games I already have installed, but not really sure if I could access them without this command...

And won't Steam try to auto-update itself anyway after launching it?

I'm not a Steamer, but this thread in the Windows XP forum has more to say: https://msfn.org/board/topic/177702-steam-for-xp-in-2019/.

It didn't tell me much either, but I figured it out by myself, let's hope it really works and Steam has no built in time bomb or anything like that, it already says since around 6 hours that it will stop working in 0 days... Guess we'll all see what happens in a couple hours.

So, it's been 42 minutes after the "Steam will stop working on Windows Vista in X days" usually went down by 1 day. and... Steam still works just fine, the message still says that Steam will stop working in 0 days and that's pretty much it, no difference since yesterday. Not sure if it's because of the -noverifyfiles thingy, but I guess we don't have to worry for now?

@i430VX Weird... I've already seen some people claiming on YouTube they no longer can open Steam under Vista, but for me it works like it did before, for you, an XP user,it works too... I really don't get it.

Also, it seems that a couple days ago a new version of Otter browser was released, a first stable one even. While the installer only works on W7 or above, they also have released a .zip version that's meant for XP and newer, so looks like we have an alternative to New Moon and Basilisk that will also be getting new updates in the future.
