  • Call me insane, but I'd really like to see these uploaded: ³ Disc BETA - Visual Studio .NET Beta 1 Disc 1 - X03-25164 (0101).iso ³ Disc BETA - Visual Studio .NET Beta 1 Disc 2 - X03-25165 (0101).iso Mainly because I've researched …
  • See my latest comment(s) about accessing old CDs on the next page (for 1.3)
  • Update - You can also mount an old format ISO'd CD like this directly using (I suspect) any recent version of ImDisk on Windows 7 (and later, no doubt). ImDisk is pretty brilliant like that. PowerISO, and modern WinRAR or 7zip will all choke on…
  • According to https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/969393/information-about-internet-explorer-versions the version 4.71.1712 is still IE4.0, rather than IE4.01, as you have recorded here. Probably worth confirming what the IE4SETUP.EXE file's o…
  • There are release versions of IE-7 available on archive.org wayback engine - if you know how to manipulate it to find stuff. Unfortunately the really simple language/OS selection page I found for IE-7 didn't work, but here are some more direct speci…
  • To obtain an actual release version for specific OS and Language download of IE8, use the archive.org site: https://web.archive.org/web/20140307174450/http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/ie-8-worldwide-languages It works for t…
  • To obtain a specific OS and Language download of IE9, use the archive.org site: http://web.archive.org/web/20121123213917/http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/downloads/ie-9/worldwide-languages It works for the ENGLISH versions…
  • Unfortunately the interactive archived page for IE10 does not work (the code thinks you are running an incompatible OS and simply cannot be persuaded otherwise). However, I have successfully obtained the ENGLISH versions of the IE10 browser for W…
  • To obtain a specific OS and Language download of IE11, use the archive.org site: https://web.archive.org/web/20150903042508/http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/ie-11-worldwide-languages It works for the ENGLISH versions for th…
  • Have a copy of WMP 7 for MAC (Found during Wayback browsing on Archive.org) https://hidrive.ionos.com/lnk/rogiuKXf#file For PowerPC-based Mac OS 8.1 or later (Mac OS 8.6 or later recommended), - see source: https://web.archive.org/web/2002102…
  • As mentioned in the forum, I've been able to use such older ISO files directly inside a VM (Windows NT 4 in this case) running an old copy of Clone CD (version 4.1.0.1 from the year 2002) that implements its own virtual CD drive inside the VM. This…
  • The Technet CD installs a dedicated CD browser to allow you to search a huge bunch of CD-based KB articles (using the Pre-2000 Qnnnn numbering system) about virtually the whole range of M$ products, such as Office 97, 98 and 2000, Windows 3.X, 95x, …
  • There's a technet CD of the Knowledge Base dated November 1999 on Archive.org https://archive.org/details/Microsoft_Knowledge_Base_Microsoft_TechNet_November_1999_X05-23435 which should be a little more user-friendly.
  • @BigAlUK said: I have no idea which combinations of VMWare, DOS, and either MSCDEX or the SoundBlaster driver installer (I'm really not sure which), got me into this strange situation with Windows 95 and Microsoft Plus, but... Ok, I now u…
  • If your installation of any of the Win32s 1.30x APIs is making 32-bit apps crash on a VMWare-based system, try setting the VMWare option for that system to "Disable acceleration for binary translation" (under VM Settings-Hardware-Processors). This …
  • Are the files at ftp.piotrkosoft.net/pub/mirrors/ftp.sunet.se/security/vendor/microsoft/service-pack/high_encryption/usa really high-encryption service packs? If they are, then this may be a way to pass 128bit up to SP6a from that SP4-128 ISO.
  • According to Wikipedia, it was eventually bought up by everyone's favourite "Sell-it-for-Pounds-What-You-Sell-It-For-In-Dollars" company: Adobe. Now at version 14. Guess Adobe will go bankrupt when the UK leaves the EU and £1 = $1.
  • Actually, they haven't pulled it all down. (ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe) is still accessible using FileZilla 3.44.1 in passive mode. It's just that the ATM sub-folder no-longer exists. I'm connected to it right now (Tues 13th Aug 2019 21:48 GMT…
  • There is no such atm folder on Adobe's FTP site. (ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/atm/)
  • I have no idea which combinations of VMWare, DOS, and either MSCDEX or the SoundBlaster driver installer (I'm really not sure which), got me into this strange situation with Windows 95 and Microsoft Plus, but... For some bizarre reason I once had…
  • The Jan'83 Manual is for DOS 2.0, not DOS 2.1 as labelled here
  • @JoeSzup Your welcome
  • Good point, Someguy
  • You're including VM's now, SomeGuy?
  • There is also this: https://archive.org/details/DBaseIIISpecialEducationalEdition1985BoydFraser, which comprises a set of working dBASE III application files and can be overlaid upon an otherwise non-working dBASE III r1.0 install - without the as…
  • Very useful archive site.... https://web.archive.org/web/19980207215527/http://www.nthelp.com/
  • Interesting old tip from the archives... https://web.archive.org/web/19980207215747/http://www.nthelp.com/corel7.htm When you install Corel 7.0 on NT 4.0, it replaces winnt/system32/mapi32.dll with an older, Win95 version of that file. You ne…
  • Some of the sources on that site may need a little work to recreate the installation floppies, but the ones I tried did result in good working installations.
  • If you are concerned about the "ABNORMAL" folder name in the path, the reason for it is explained in this text file
  • Instead of telling us what version 1.1 is "not" for, how about clarifying what it "is" for? (Just sayin')
