I tried a program which was made in Python 3.8 and I'm very happy that it worked despite that it crashed when I tried to do something, but at least any kind of Python 3.x program working in Vista! I'm also trying to get mysql community server 8.0.21 in Vista, but I'm unsure if it works. Firstly, the Workbench can't be installed, and while the setup try to configure all the stuff, mysqld.exe gives a Kernel32.dll. Y wanted to create a mysqld.exe.local but can't find the mysqld.exe. I'm wondering if creating a file .msi.local near to the installer will work and will use the modified kernel dlls all the time during installation.

Good news, I got the latest version of Chromium to work on the Extended Kernel The latest version of Chromium working on Windows Vista (not clickbait!).jpg

 

EDIT: It is possible to run the latest version of Chromium with the Extended Kernel within CHRLauncher. You just have to get CHRLauncher from this link: https://github.com/henrypp/chrlauncher/releases/tag/v.2.5.7 and download and extract the files and you would see the folder labeled "chrlauncher"  and then you will see the folder labeled "64"

It looks like in your language version the "Program Files" folder is called "Programmes".

Replace the osver.ini file contents with:

[C:\Programmes\Mozilla Firefox\Firefox.exe]
Enabled=1
FirefoxFix=1
