Software compatible with Windows Vista Extended Kernel

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Mozilla Thunderbird (the Firefox Email client) is also working for me with the extended kernel.

I thought porting IE10 back to Vista could be my next goal. Vista‘s IE 9 has the version 9.0.8112.x 

So, doesnt that mean that this IE version is ported from Windows 8 Build 8112? Because IE11 on W7 also has the version number 11.0.9600 which means it is ported back from W8.1? I looked it up and such a build really exists but cant be downloaded anywhere. However, it may be possible to port back IE10 from Build 8250 (Consumer Preview) or?

W7 has 11.0.9600 which obviously doesnt work on Vista , i had even tried IE10 from W8.0, not sure which version , the only IE10 Version that works is the IE10 Platform Preview 2  , IE10 8250 i'm not sure where one could find now.

Well then extract it and/or backport/modify it like you originally intended.

Audacity is a x86 application, so unless you have some x86 extensions, it works on normal Vista

Maybe you should checkout Winclient's video , it doesn't work , you can use addons in firefox.

Yeah but fonts are so ugly in firefox. I use chrome on vista just because of that.

Newer versions of Vivaldi and Google Chrome crashes.

I do this even on Vista7 . But the effect is more prominent in Vista, yeah. Fonts should look similar to Chrome if not better after that. Tho if you're using Waterfox Classic with Classic Theme Restorer this option is built in via ticbox. Just restart the browser after and compare.
