  • In this case, you can burn the ISO's contents to a CD/DVD or copy it directly to the target system with something like a USB flash drive, then install VirtualCloneDrive (freeware - https://www.elby.ch/products/vcd.html) to mount the ISO in a virtual…
  • I love this stuff. It's fun to screw around with win16/early win32 corporate software when you get bored with pinball and minesweeper. 5.01 also needs some sort of unlock code, but only if you want to make multiple manuals simultaneously. Wher…
  • Yes, it does look like the Windows XP we all know and love. So does Windows 98SE with Revolutions Pack 9.7 installed and the Luna theme selected. Conversely, you can enable the Windows Classic visual style and make it look similar to 9x/2000.
  • "Disk read error?" I've never seen that before but my only advice is to make new win2k installation media. One set I tried to use yesterday went wonky when it couldn't find setup.exe during the second part then couldn't find ntoskrnl.exe after a …
  • blackwingcat made a modded version which you can find by searching on this site: http://w2k.flxsrv.org/wlu/wlu.htm
  • I had heard that PCem/86box didn't work on Windows 2000 in a place (which I've forgot) discussing the extended kernel. In fact, both emulators work fine with the exception of rejecting all keyboard input. A look at dependency walker reveals th…
  • That is essentially NTVDMx64 (https://github.com/leecher1337/ntvdmx64), which is based on the leaked NT4 source code and is for Windows 7 and up. It only runs DOS software. Do not install it on Windows XP x64. I did and it broke WOW64.
  • This wasn't made with Windows XP x64 in mind. Using blackwingcat's PE Maker I discovered that it expects NT 6.0 or higher. After changing the OS/subsystem min versions to 5.2 it would crash as soon as it would try to load a win16 program.
  • These service packs (and likely most hotfixes) are blocked from installing on Datacenter Server, where the OEM was to provide all support and updates. A patched update.exe will allow them to install. The Windows 2000 Extended Core breaks the hard…
  • Unfortunately the only semi-relevant result i found when searching for it was your question on the Microsoft community forum. No one took the time to have the wayback machine crawl the Arabic SP4 from M$' site back in the day. Thus it is presume…
  • None of those items are on WinWorld (except for maybe IE; no reputable sources state there was an SP4). Upload them to a file-sharing site like MEGA then post the links as an offer or PM to @SomeGuy.
  • I didn't try it myself but I have some very trustworthy reports of it working. Here are blackwingcat's instructions: http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/archives/1954392.html
  • If it's SP6a (and not just SP6) in the languages specified on the NT4 Patches page, it's already here. If it's something that is not here already, then use a file-sharing site like Mega and post the full link (with decryption key) here or PM @Som…
  • Retail hoarders they were, though it's far better than stocking up on can openers or firecrackers. To me it's proof of regional inequality in old hardware availability. They are blessed with that mess yet here it's like "if it's not a Core 2 Duo,…
  • XP and Office 2000 are not allowed on Winworld so those requests can't be honoured. But I did find Windows 2000 Professional SP1 and Office 97 (RTM and SR1) Greek: https://archive.org/details/Windows2000ProfessionalwithServicePack1Greek htt…
  • Just confirmed that it works on 8.1.
  • That wouldn't be an official Microsoft CD-ROM though. There are a few bootable Windows 95 hackjobs and OEM recovery CDs circulating.
  • Debian automatically opens up a dialog which lets you save a png to a set destination. I don't have to go to start > accessories > paint then paste then save as a bmp/png.
  • Both are available here as RTM releases, but Microsoft never made a bootable Windows 95 CD-ROM. That started with NT4 and carried on to OEM releases of 98.
  • @Windows 2000 said: Anyways, i'm thinking of downgrading from Windows 10 to Windows 2000 on my Inspiron 535s. Luckily there is driver support for it. Realtek audio and Ethernet, as well as Intel graphics will have official Windows 2000 dr…

  • From the sounds of it (release date of 1994), it only handles win16 stuff. An open source project called odin32 does the same thing for win32 applications: http://trac.netlabs.org/odin32

  • A Linux guy installs Windows 2000, and a Windows 2000 guy installs Debian 9.9: It's much easier to print screen than in any version of Windows. And it uses 285 MB of RAM idle. I'm keeping LTSC loaded though.
  • Nope. The POSReady updates should be mostly for IE and other core OS components. I don't think it would be any worse than installing updates on Windows 8.x/10 which have plenty of issues as it is. They could very well be identical to the paid update…

  • yeah, it's just like the copy of Norton on my father's old desktop (as old as the machine, so 2004). In 2010 or so a popup appeared indicating that it had expired. At first, his reaction was to state that the computer was no longer safe to use. B…

  • I forgot to say that Windows Embedded POSReady 7 will be supported until October 12, 2021 and the updates are available in the Microsoft Update Catalog: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=posready 7 There aren't many but I …

  • Nope, Server 2008 updates will continue to be released (publically) until January 14, 2020: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/search?alpha=Windows Server 2008 (scroll down to Service Pack 2) A recent update a few months ago bumped up …

  • The powers that be will determine whether new WinWorld-branded services are created of course, but I am willing to write about stuff like Windows 2000 unofficial updates. Workarounds and patches to get older OSes/software to work optimally or at …
  • Actually RTM was December 15, 1999, then released to retail on February 17, 2000. Datacenter Server was RTMed on August 11, 2000, and released to retail on September 26 (I thought it was only an OEM product sold with specific hardware bundles).
  • Windows 10 has the same stable NT core as Windows 7, XP, 2000 etc but some of the stuff on top of it is quite messy (there's an empty space where the M$ Edge icon is supposed to be on my school computers, my aunt's computer stuck on the win8-style s…
