Software compatible with Windows Vista Extended Kernel


WinClient5270

Recommended Posts


Firefox version 81 works with Extended Kernel. Not sure of any major issues since I only went to Google, but videos would probably be a problem since I believe versions beyond the 60's have issues with some videos. If you want to test this out, but aren't sure of how to do it, go to this thread for a tutorial. Credit goes to WinClient5270 and TatsuyaSou for the tutorials. I just took them and compiled it into one, hopefully easy to follow tutorial so you don't have to hunt between a YouTube Video and a thread.

Speedtest by Ookla (Current version v1.7.132) works on Vista. They only Support Windows 7 or later.

Isn't that a web application (which worked well in roytam1's browsers last I checked, which means 2000/XP)? Or did they introduce a desktop client?

They did introduce a desktop client, but it does work even without your kernel.

“SpeedTest App” is listed as ONG in the Last versions of software for (vanilla) Windows Vista thread under System Management, Cleanup, and Analysis.

Also, I discovered that this kernel extension works with all the post-EOL updates from 2017-18 from @greenhillmaniac's repository (version no. 6.0.6003.20555), so you need not completely forgo the Server 2008 updates.

Doesn't seem like a config I'd trust, unless somehow all of the modded files were basically untouched, which I highly doubt.
