  • I used a DOS-based address book up until recently and that ran fine. I'll have to try again on Monday.
  • I tried copying those over from a working machine, but it didn't help. Patch level I believe is the same. I can't remember for sure, but I think I applied all of the updates, up through and including the ones just recently released.
  • I might have to order one of these for my D630. Have you tried it with a 100MB disk? I have only 100MB disks.
  • @yourepicfailure said: @win32 I wouldn't be surprised if we had Win10 iot wheels, with the way things are going. Oh and iot connected vehicles. With all new telemetry collecting information about where, when, how you drive to deliver super…
  • @BlueSun said: @win32 said: It was probably some subconsicous trick to make Windows 7 (and the hardware it runs on) far more antiquated than it actually is. Just like the chromebook ads with XP-style error dialogs and 9x blue screen…
  • @Windows99SE said: Yeah, if you want to make cameras decades old work, then you have to deal with it being a PITA. Fortunately this one is from 2004 and kind of easy to work with. Here's all the stuff I had to deal with. Firstly this camera only …
  • @BlueSun said: @nick99nack said: I wonder if they were popular enough for homebrew servers to appear, like what happened with AOL Instant Messenger. TIL third party AIM servers are a thing. AIM Phoenix https…
  • When I installed Windows Me a few months ago, I was shocked to find that those games still work. I figured support would have been pulled years ago. Kudos to Microsoft for keeping them around for so long. I wonder if they were popular enough for …
  • I did have VC++ 2008 installed because it came bundled with OpenOffice.org, but according to the registry and Add/Remove Programs, I only have .net 2.0 SP1. I wonder if we have different installers or something.
  • @win32 said: I failed to mention the prerequisites for running Adobe CS5/6 installers. I was befuddled for awhile because I tried to run it, failed and discovered my previous notes in this thread lacked these important details. Turns out t…
  • One weird thing popped up today. Seems that if I try to load any SSL sites in Internet Explorer (like Google), they won't work anymore. Same thing happens when trying to load my e-mail in Outlook. Yet, I can still load my e-mail under Windows 95, al…
  • That's pretty cool. I'm gonna have to try it on my laptop. Thanks for sharing that.
  • @Bry89 said: Now, I've got the same query as @nick99nack too but, only to convert an .mp4 video into a .wmv to be used under Movie Maker (yes, I use the XP-based one, not the Live successor). The only difference is, it's for videos that I sometim…
  • @JonathonWyble said: @Bry89 said: I would assume that's for 10 only and if so, I can't get it (as I'm really unwilling to upgrade). Would be nice if there's other alternatives... No, I'm sure you can use it on Windows …
  • @win32 said: 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 Thanks, I got it working. Extension…
  • How did you get Advanced Chrome working? It didn't want to launch on mine, even with sandboxing disabled.
  • @BlueSun said: @win32 said: 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. In Windows, …
  • @yourepicfailure said: Unless it automatically puts out a .png in a set destination when you press that print screen button with no other interaction needed, then it's no easier than windows. I'm not sure about straight Debian, but th…
  • @Windows 2000 said: @nick99nack Did you install all the updates? Including KernelEx? I did. Works great for me.
  • Windows 2000 on my desktop:
  • Here's the May update. Download the one for your platform: http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4488669 And here's the KB article if you like to read such things. Important A new version of this update was released on Ma…
  • @nick99nack said: All of my smartphones so far have been HTC. Started with the Thunderbolt, then had the Droid DNA, then the One (which I honestly regret getting and wish I had just kept the DNA - I might have to find one on eBay), and now the HT…
  • Seems to be working now, thanks.
  • I just tried it and it's giving me an error on desktop as well.
  • @SistemaRayoXP said: I can recommend you aTube Catcher. This program downloads, converts, records and burns multimedia. It works to convert to many formats, but in its conversion core is a front end for ffmpeg. You can find a little thing called …
  • @BlueSun said: I should point out that mp4 or avi doesn't really tell you anything but the container used for the video. The video and audio codecs contained with that container format are more important to know and understand. Like I said, it's …
  • I tried all different versions and settings of HandBrake, and couldn't get that to work. Trying WinFF now. I forgot about those codec packs. Maybe I'll give that a shot next.
  • Yeah, the built-in one is fine. Microsoft actually did a nice job on it - something I don't say too often!
  • I can't see us ever moving away from x86. It's been tried many times in the past and nothing's changed. The sheer number of x86 PCs at this point would make the change very difficult. Emulation is sssllloooowwww. Apple moving to ARM is not a big dea…
  • That's cool. Might make a good prank you could play on someone.
