  • I'm using Pale Moon 28.3.1 x64 on Windows 10 and it works. I just whipped out a 2003R2 laptop with New Moon 28.0.085 (ancient I know) and it went through the downloading process, just to get stuck at 100%. It could easily be an anti-NT5 vendetta.…

  • No Hay Problema is also the title.wma in Server 2003. I was able to slipstream Server 2003 (not XP x86) SP2 into this build using nLite. But it wouldn't load the HAL DLLs when booting on my T60. So it appears to be harder than I originally though…
  • After some research, it appears the only thing this build has to do with Longhorn is the EULA. It also has zero-day activation, which means you will have to boot into safe mode immediately to do... you know... I think an upgrade to SP2 wouldn't b…
  • Nope this is the reset point for Longhorn when it became based on the Windows Server 2003 SP1 RC (?) codebase. After this the build number jumped to 5000 I'm not sure about how functional it is and whether it could be upgraded to 2003 SP2/R2 (usi…
  • I'm surprised they let that one slide. I guess there's really no interest in SimCity Classic.
  • @BlueSun said: I also think our tolerance of childish behavior reduced over time as we got older. Yeah, it seems to be true for computer forums in general. Compare the posting style on MSFN in 2001 to now, and our old posts from 2004 to n…
  • Unfortunately they only sell the DOS version (and not the superior Windows 95 version) but EA is very protective of their intellectual property (going from personal experience) so I think that WinWorld shouldn't touch anything EA with a ten-foot pol…
  • We already have it. Datacenter Server was released in September 2000, after SP1 so the Datacenter RTM does have SP1 integrated anyway. What's strange is that the Datacenter ISOs are retail, when it was rarely, if ever distributed as a retail prod…
  • Windows 2000 has a new extended kernel: http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/archives/1979961.html I'm excited to try it!
  • WinWorld also has Windows 9x boot disks. You can use the ones from 98 instead of 95, though they lack format.com so you'd have to go through X:\win95\oemsetup (replace X with the letter assigned to your CD-ROM drive) I think the empty CD-ROM thin…
  • It's nice to see an ISA card embossed with mixed-case type and a URL to refer to. Would it work up to the CHS limit (or even the 28-bit LBA limit)? If so, then it looks like you've on your way to a solid Windows 1 rig, though I've probably overl…

  • Windows 9x, 2000 and XP release notes are in the readme on the CD-ROM. I haven't a clue about Vista and 7.
  • The link redirects me to my own account when I do sign in.
  • I was curious enough to install 3718 on my ThinkPad T60. Things were going great until I attempted to install the win2k M$ HDA bus driver and the one for the Mobility Radeon X1300 (an XP-only driver from 2009; I was too lazy to look for my copy of t…
  • First off, probably the fact it's only for OS/2. They eventually switched to making extensions to the established photo manipulation products like Photoshop and PSP (and ultimately switching to Windows) Anyway I found a demo for version 1: http:…
  • The rule-of-thumb for '90s M$ software that asks for a CD key: 111-1111111, 123-4567890, or something similar

  • My own Windows 2000 Professional RTM key. It's from the commemorative edition, and if it's like Windows 95 and Windows 7's special editions, it's equivalent to a retail product key. KK9V4-QQTXV-M3DR3-RYMMH-PBYDB
  • Guru meditations aren't a windows thing. Would that be on the host? If so, whatever it is may not take well to VBox 5.2. I've had significant stability issues with VirtualBox on Windows 7 recently as well.
  • The original Quake isn't sold on GOG, although the others in the series are (haven't checked other services). I'd be cautious in the event that they do start selling it though. Maybe if it had severe compatibility issues with NT6 (and no patches)…

  • Now I've got some advice regarding virtualization software on Windows 2000. Preferably, install a program that is compatible with the vanilla OS (and with the OS identifier set to win2k), as installing newer versions under the guise of XP or 7 wi…
  • Here is some footage of Windows 95 usability testing: It's somewhat interesting but it turns out that it was only dug up to be used as pro-Metro propaganda.
  • Illustrator CS6 is a no-go. It loads the plug-ins, gets stuck and disappears into thin air. Ah well, that's why I've got VMware Workstation 6.5 which can do Aero in guests
  • Here is a CD-ROM with sample data sets compatible with Simply Accounting 7.x/8.x. I think they're for the Canadian version as well. https://archive.org/details/SimplyData (disclaimer: I didn't dump or upload that CD)
  • BWC made a list of browsers compatible with the extended kernel: http://w2k.flxsrv.org/brwk2.htm (please note that New Moon works up to the latest version, which is now 28.5) With NT6 compatibility set, Firefox 53 (the first version that officia…
  • I had previously stated that Photoshop CS5/6 were impossible on W2K, due to the hurdles presented by the AAM module that fervently requested XP SP3. Luckily, the fcwin2k package from BWC makes bypassing version checks a breeze: http://blog.lived…
  • Please note that this is an English forum. VMWare doesn't emulate 3dfx cards. PCem or 86box will.
  • BWC is working on releasing a new version of the extended kernel, which should hopefully be out in March: https://msfn.org/board/topic/149233-kernelex-for-win2000/?do=findComment&comment=1160339
  • One thing Windows 10 can do easier than Windows 2000: run in QVGA (320x240) mode. I could do 320x200 but there wasn't enough room for the options on the confirmation dialog to appear. It would probably serve those Metro fanbois right to have a …
  • I meant to say that the MS Works interface looks like a mixture of those programs.
  • It looks like Encarta 98 and Office 97's bastardized lovechild in terms of interface. Kinda shows what they were going for with Neptune/Millennium as well.
