Get the Extended Kernel32 to release quality 1st, before engaging in an even more difficult project. Your dispersiveness undermines your credibility. With all due respect.

... and I thought I was the one that would have failed in a diplomatic career ... :w00t::ph34r:

Extended kernel is cancelled for better one core API.

1.) Huh? You've never said you'd decided to cancel it! Don't you think you owe your numerous potential user base some consideration, let alone, at least, a less meager modicum of information? :dubbio:
2.) It's not been that long ago we talked about you creating something to patch the relevant files in-memory, maybe even using the native API... if you were about to cancel your project, why have you had people lose their time considering your potencial problem? :dubbio:

AFAIK, KernelEx is writen in C and C++ :
https://sourceforge.net/p/kernelex/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/kexcrt/
https://sourceforge.net/p/kernelex/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/core/

 

That guy wanted to do a KernelEx for XP which is not something very easy,
but he's not able to compile a trivial C program :

And now he wants to write a driver... :lol:

     We can do it easily for C++ but I need for MASM

Read carefully before you write!

. Do you know 90% code of extended XP was written in masm ? Pure x86 assembly.

I previously wrote driver for broadcomm NIC and Cmedia cm66xx.

If you can compile that program with visual studio without any modification or without using tiny C . Please show it

Extended XP is cancelled but not upcoming updated xompie style api wrapper with same implementation as Extended.

Extended will t be revived after April 2019.

Every month Microsoft releasing new system DLL so it became hard to maintain extended xp.

Dibya, is it in your plan to support pure uefi on windows xp? I have a surface pro and some bay-trail tablets and I want to install xp on them... The problem is that they haven't legacy boot :/

Wow, thanks :)

No guarantee.

Freeloader of Reactos will be modified to support UEFI but I don't know if that will work

You can try to do it right away... the way to do it already exists:

WinXP x86 SP2 or SP3 also boot in EFI32 - tested only on VMware Workstation 8. EFI loader (files) are from Longhorn Vista x86 6.0.5219.0. Information on how to do this can be found from this post:  https://www.betaarchive.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=433345#p433345
