  • Primary Machine - AVA Direct FX AM3+ (custom built) * Zalman ZM Z9-U3 Black Mid-Tower case * ASUS M5A97 R2.0 motherboard (BIOS revision 2603, 2015-07-24) * AMD FX-4300 3.8 GHz quad-core processor * Fractal Design Integra R2 500W PSU * N…
  • @SomeGuy said: Of course. I don't have the details of what version supports what, off hand, but they would have had support for whatever drives and partitions were common at the time. SpinRite II 1989-1991, SpinRite 3 1993, SpinRite 5 1998. …
  • SpinRite II is probably one of the best known utilities. The only draw backs is that Spinrite II has some limitations: * IDE hard disks of up to 1,024 cylinders, 16 heads and 63 sectors per track for a total of 504 MB. * SCSI hard disks of u…
  • In late 1983, my first PC was the Commodore 64 which had Commodore BASIC built in. I used it for years until the power supply stopped working. Starting in early 1988, I used MS-DOS 3.2 as my first OS which came pre-installed on the Tandy 1000TX. …
  • That's not the case if you're using SeaMonkey for Internet Explorer. RSS feeds display just fine. You will eventually need a extension add-on if you want to use RSS feeds or search for standalone RSS feeds on Google.
  • That's what I'm thinking. Any attempt to run VPC2007 on Windows 10 throws a BSOD crash with a CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT STOP error referencing to VMM.SYS. Unfortunately, there is no fix for this issue on 64-bit Windows 10.
  • I ran Virtual PC 2007 on 64-bit Windows Vista. Virtual PC 2007 will infact run on Windows 7. Virtual PC 2007 will on 32-bit versions of Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Running 64-bit versions of Virtual PC 2007 on 64-bit Windows 8 or Wi…
  • HIMEM.SYS from MS-DOS 6.x was limited to 65,535 KB (64 MB - 1 KB) of extended memory, because it used 16-bit variables to store the amount of extended memory in kilobytes. This was obviously one of the software limitations that was implemented si…
  • @menage said: Windows Express 2.11 has one but it is referred to as Icon Editor. More limited than the Icon Designer or WE 3 version but still more capable than what MS offered in their SDK. The icon library exists as EXPRESS.WIL but again it …
  • @menage said: Note that hDC Windows Express included the Icon Designer and the icon libraries. hDC extracted the executable and the section of the manual to make Icon Designer a separate $60 product. Spending $30 just to get box shots and picture…
  • This is obviously one of my most favourite operating system ever! I originally purchased Windows 3.0 on August 15, 1990 and had it installed on a Datalab 286-based PC with a 42.7 MB MFM hard drive, 1 MB of RAM and a Trident 8800CS video card with…
  • I would also like to mention that hDC Icon Designer was released in 1990 and it came in both 3.5" and 5.25" diskettes and there are a bunch of old articles regarding the product including this one, mentioned in the November 12, 1990 issue of Compute…
