    Beware that the latest version of the Windows 2000 extended kernel, v2.9bG may create a corrupted riched20.dll dated July 2015. The WordPad/RTF engine relies on it, and many Windows Installers will fail when tasked with displaying an EULA (error code 2894).

    You should expand and transplant riched20.dll from SP5.1 installation media, dated November 2006.

    Playing videos in VLC 3.0.6 does work with this version of the kernel, as opposed to v2.8iG.
