  • I'm not very concerned by the end of updates; POSReady 7 is supported until October 2021 and its updates are compatible with the regular Windows 7 (though you will need WSUS to download them I think; you can't fake the OS type like with XP). Anyw…
  • The Windows 2000 Media Consumption/Capture Crisis has come to an end after a 26 hour standoff with semi-depreciated versions of the media players VLC and Media Player Classic-Home Cinema. The latest version of the competing PotPlayer, version 1.7…
  • Look at where you have typed this. The answer stares you in the face. When entering the site, click "library" then you'll see those two products linked on the front page.
  • Another Windows 2000 kerfuffle has arisen: with regards to media players. Version 1.1.10 is the last version to officially support win2k, and works very well (the "directx wallpaper" actually produces an equivalent to dreamscene from vista ultima…
  • The modded After Dark 3 works on both Windows 2000 and XP, although I have never been able to get the modded After Dark 4 to work on win2k (with both regular and extended kernel), though it does work on XP and Server 2003. I think it may have som…
  • You can use the free VMware Player, which doesn't have many limitations compared to workstation (you can only use one VM at a time is one I'm aware of)
  • To send files to Winworld, you must upload them to an external file sharing site such as Mega, then post a link in the thread or in a PM to a Winworld staff member, like SomeGuy.
  • It wasn't particularly obvious to me then but if anyone is interested, 3D studio max version 4 is on this warez DVD. I found this while looking for solidworks: https://archive.org/details/dvdrom-twilight-058 The picture is the cover of the CD-RO…
  • This is Encarta Reference Suite 99, which combines the base encyclopedia with other programs such as Encarta Virtual Globe and Bookshelf, and fills one DVD-ROM. https://archive.org/details/Microsoft_Encarta_Reference_Suite_99_DVD_-_Windows95_Eng

  • There is some form of an easter egg on the Office 97 professional CD-ROM. In the sounds (/clipart/mmedia) folder, you will find the startup and shutdown sounds of a later iteration of the OS that Windows NT developed out of. They are titled glide…
  • Unlike Windows 3.0 setup, which runs as a Windows application, Windows 3.1x setup runs in the NTVDM, and tries to "upgrade" Windows 2000 by attempting to install in my system32 folder. The setup.inf in 3.1x is quite powerful and interesting, with…
  • Here is a better USB supplement than Microsoft's original work: https://msfn.org/board/topic/177518-xusbsupp-extended-usb-supplement-for-windows-95-osr2/ USB mass storage-class device drivers are built in.
  • That could be an alternative to slipstreaming with nLite or HFSLIP, although I don't see any advantages. But different ways of formatting partitions than with 2000 setup are interesting. I use an XP or 2003 CD to quick format my partitions (and a…
  • Yeah the physical RAM is always stuck at 32 MB, but the "virtual memory" kept changing every time I ran it (~250 MB or ~600 MB). I got the option dialog to pop up once but disappeared after clicking "OK" on the entry point error (which kept reappear…
  • Coming from a much later era, my elementary schools had IBM NetVista desktops with Williamette P4s (some were celerons) and 256 or 512 MB of RAM, running Windows XP Pro SP2/3 unbearably slow. I remember being very impatient and attempting to launch …
  • I think I found Hurricane 98 on a crazybytes (or twilight) warez CD on archive.org once. And here are some early 2000s snake oil system enhancers: web.archive.org/web/20040603034443/http://dachshundsoftware.com/index.html I think I'll install…
  • And here is another feature set to be added to 19H1/1903: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/filecab/2019/01/07/windows-10-and-reserved-storage/ Windows' appetite for storage continues to grow, to the tune of an extra 7+ GB. My HP laptop came w…
  • I feel that all sources should be attributed, whether they come from other websites or original media.
  • Does this "Russian server" have build 2415_lab06? That is a highly sought build for it was shown in a demonstration featuring Luna with the old Windows flag. And is it old-dos.ru by any chance? If it is then I've answered my own question: no.
  • Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 (in case you stumble upon the early commercial version): pwcvd-gdpm7-p23vy-g6qm4-r8y8t
  • You don't need Windows 10 1809, macOS Mojave or Royale Noir to have a (mostly) dark theme. I think it would be possible to modify the side graphics in explorer.exe to make it even darker. Or switch to litestep... unfortunately white is the only c…
  • I am sure that most WinWorld users are mature enough to play games with a higher level of violence, vulgarity and sexual content. But if you can't or won't run GTA, you can always play the Microsoft Entertainment Pack games like Chip's Challenge,…
  • Yes. 135 USD which turned into 227 CAD with the exchange rate, shipping and customs fees. People think I'm insane for buying win2k when Windows 10 licences are sold for about 5% the price but I don't care.
  • I tried the S5 in XP with VMWare Player 3.1.2 (which needs a patch from BWC to enable some of its services, including USB). It's even less capable of accessing it (can't even open the folders) even after installing the Samsung drivers, so I'll have …
  • I did about the same and it would sometimes crash. Other times it would take about double the videos. The crashes are registered in Dr Watson as an exception in RtlEnterCriticalSection (77F87EEB). It crashed with either adblock latitude or ABPrime a…
  • The activation issues with XP and 2003 are just the tip of the iceberg. Do you have a copy of Ulead Media Studio 8 or Video Studio 11? You may as well toss them in the trash because neither program can access their former activation servers anymo…
  • Good thing Calmira works. All you need to do is change the default shell in the registry and Windows 8.x/10 should be much easier to work with, if you can still do that.
  • @nick99nack are there still any issues with crashes due to heavy youtube usage? Scribus 1.4.7 (the latest version) still supports 2000 SP4. And I have some breaking Windows 2000 news: Serif PagePlus X7 from 2013, which officially requires XP S…
  • Now I'm trying to get 2000 to work with relatively modern commercial productivity / creativity software. Adobe CS2 / Premiere Pro 1.5 is the last version to officially support Windows 2000 SP4. Attempting to install Premiere Pro 2.0 gave me an…
  • I found one: https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=athene And the freely available desktop version 4.1: web.archive.org/web/20060315170019/http://rocklyte.com/files/athene_v41.exe
