  • 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…

  • @JonathonWyble said: Anyway, that's not what this is about. Of course you are allowed to run Apple operating systems on Apple hardware, but I don't get why Apple has to have a crusade against running their OS on non-Apple hardware (VirtualBox, fo…
  • I have a Galaxy S5, which I will use until it keels over. I don't get why people need to get a new phone every year (too many Apple fanbois around me). I don't like the unremovable preloaded software either. I need to root it someday, but apparen…
  • you should copy the win95 folder to the HDD to ensure that setup can find the files during the final part.
  • A minor time zone update has been issued for POSReady 2009: http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=xp embedded KB4501226
  • CP/M was originally released on 8" floppies, and the U.S. nuclear arsenal is controlled by them, but you won't find much in that department because they were obsolete by the time the IBM PC came out. And the computers with 8" floppy drives were w…
  • You only uploaded this about 4 weeks ago. I had to wait about 6.5 months for Simply Accounting 8.5a so depending on @SomeGuy's priorities it could still take awhile. Be patient.

  • @ItsRexie_04, are you running setup from the CD-ROM or did you copy the win95 folder to the HDD? There is a well-known bug with Windows 95 setup where the CD-ROM drivers are not loaded during the last part of setup which means that it can't find the…
  • It happens to be the only place on the web that says that. I believe this is the offending download: https://vetusware.com/download/Excel 2.1/?id=9478 In fact someone ripped this particular download from winworld! Though they only uploaded one…
  • VMware Player 3 corresponds with Workstation version 7 from 2009, so it would have been 2.6.x then. Corel Linux came out in 1999/00, so it likely used kernel version 2.2.x. You should try one of the early releases of VMware Workstation on WinW…
  • Just noticed the "Windows 2000 Enterprise Edition", which doesn't exist. The advanced server SKU of Server 2003 is "Enterprise Edition" so I guess that may be advanced server in disguise. "Microsoft Office Small Bus"? Any idea what that could be?…
  • I'm going to order the next win10 enterprise LTSC release on 5.25" 360K diskettes from M$. Back on topic, 98FE was a real dog on my IBM PC 300GL. Before I could even install any drivers, I'd get blue screen after blue screen then lose all respo…
  • He hasn't been active since April so he may not respond but I will make a few general notes about graphic card support on Windows 95. Backwards compatibility with Windows 3.x drivers will ensure that many graphic cards going back to the 1980s (in…
  • I rate the Windows Desktop Update -23414/10. It really sucks away on my PIII-500, feeling much slower than the real win95 shell and even the Windows 2000 shell. I nominate IE4 for worst application software ever made, up there with IE6 and Adobe …
  • Good job sourcing out the v8.0 U.S. packaging and including the sample data ISO! Here is the cover of the 8.5 manual (which I just found), which is different from the 8.0 manual. It covers both the Canada and U.S. versions but is about 350 pages …
  • Sounds like 3.3 is the VB6/CS6 of GIS if the wiki page even has a section devoted to preference over newer versions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ArcView_3.x Here is the patch for Windows XP compatibility: https://support.esri.com/en/Produ…
  • There never was a PowerBook G5, for the energy efficiency reason you stated above, as well as heat output (i wonder how it compared to mobile P4s)
  • Try MEGA. I don't know why they'd take this stuff down but they leave modern Windows ISOs and cracks for modern software up.
  • Well yes I don't think they want to be seen as encouraging the circumvention of Apple's EULA by providing official workarounds. This could be seen as hampering Apple's hardware revenue and advocating OS piracy, putting Oracle on possibly shaky legal…
  • I don't see how gaming would be any different from other uses in terms of susceptibility to malware. Safe web browsing habits like adblocking and not clicking on sketchy executables, as well as the basic protection of Windows Defender should suffice.
  • I'm so glad that the Itanic sunk. I'd hate to see the enormous x86 program library be rendered useless (or slow) by a change in architecture.
  • Amazingly, the system requirements for PS going back to v1 are still available on Adobe's website: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/system-requirements-old-versions.html#main_Older_Versions
  • "This video is unavailable"
  • Yeah that would be the system tray applet that would lead to the control panel (GfxUI) itself. You can disable that as it would be rendered redundant by the disabling of GfxUI. You'd probably have your boot time shortened by a few seconds as well.
