  • I dunno. Some may feel that the ThinkPads are valuable due to their age and special characteristics, or paraphrasing a post reacting to the theft of a Pentium-233 laptop, someone may steal something just to say they stole it. Somehow I think if I pu…
  • The "R" series ThinkPads apparently have a lower build quality than say a T or Z series ThinkPad. Personally I think that the T60 with its dual-core CPU would be a better option, as it is still able to watch HD video, browse the web and use old w…
  • Looks like VMware versions 8 -10 (player 4-6?) are currently impossible to run in Windows 2000 due to the lack of MmProtectMdlSystemAddress in ntoskrnl.exe, which the kernel driver vmx86.sys in those versions calls. VirtualBox 4.0.4's kernel driv…
  • @menage said: [...] Compaq then tried to bolster service contracts by using non-standard power supplies and hard disks that contained the BIOS. [...] Yeah, my HDD-less Armada 1790 was afflicted with the lack of BIOS configuration. To its …
  • It's not as crippling as the last POS update for Windows XP, where they forgot to register the Windows Installer DLLs. But I think that the quality of software in general has deteriorated in recent years. Today I heard that the latest update to t…
  • I'd have to disagree. I can use WinSetupFromUSB to fit multiple OSes on a single USB flash drive, even Windows 9x (using the "grub4dos compatible ISO" feature) and easily slipstream and modify the sources after initially copying them to the stick. …
  • Since links are there for both products (albeit semi-direct for the first; maybe it should be reuploaded with only the director 8.0 binary), all that has to be done is for @SomeGuy to upload them (users cannot upload files themselves). However, h…
  • Well, they didn't get punished badly when they forced IE into Windows. But yeah, I dumped Windows 10 (Enterprise LTSC) a few weeks ago. I installed 2012 R2 Standard in its place and I noted a general improvement in usability, especially with rega…
  • ^ That reminds me of the icons used by Virtualbox to identify Windows OS versions. Personally I think that the original "flag" logo from 1991 should be revived. And at the same time, the classic theme should definitely return. After using the hac…
  • @hentieman said: Where can I get the 8.x versions? Macromedia Director Studio 8.0: https://archive.org/download/cdrom-twilight-047 Download twilight47b.cue/twilight47b.bin and you will find it somewhere on there. Macromedia Direc…
  • The 98SE USP wouldn't work. But there is a USP for Windows Me. beware: its last version apparently has some significant issues! http://www.mdgx.com/web.htm#ME1 There is also the Windows Me Cumulative Update: https://hjtsoft.blogspot.com/201…
  • So it's basically Microsoft Office OneNote, but requiring proprietary hardware. They have nothing on the crazies who were "gunning for IBM".
  • Mx150TMMX is the model, as indicated by the sticker on the bottom. Probably made in 1997, as written in the S/N. (the Mobile Pentium 150 MMX was introduced in 1997, before being superseded by higher-clocked PII and Tillamook CPUs the next year.) …
  • Here's a new link: https://ia803107.us.archive.org/view_archive.php?archive=/17/items/intellegacygraphics/IntelLegacyGraphics.zip And the Kaby Lake video drivers modded for Windows 7: https://archive.org/details/kabylakew7
  • The damage seems to be far greater than originally thought. Some newer Windows 7 drivers, like the ones for the relatively recent Intel HD Graphics 620, can no longer be found on Intel's website; only the Windows 10 x64 drivers.
  • Online activation has been fixed on Windows XP. Apparently the applicable internal certificates were updated recently after expiring in the past. https://msfn.org/board/topic/177534-how-to-activate-windows-xp-online-in-2018/page/2/#comments
  • Things are back up and running on Julian. great!
  • I just tried myself and now it works for me too. I guess the August or September cumulative updates fixed it.
  • When I look for software released between 1995 and ~2004, I always look for crazybytes and twilight CD/DVDs when they're unavailable everywhere else. There are a few other warez compilations from that time period, but they didn't last very long and …
  • It's in Twilight 77: https://archive.org/details/dvdrom-twilight-077
  • Yeah, it's not working for me either. This probably is one of the first recent winworld download issues to not be the result of end-user error. And IPFS isn't working for me, at least with Borland C++ Builder 6.
  • There's a fix for that: https://msfn.org/board/topic/141402-windows-95-21ghz-cpu-limit-broken 98FE has an official hotfix and the problem is fixed in 98SE.
  • Well, it turns out that the 56.64 drivers for NT4 have the same issue as Windows 95 where APIs used by the NVIDIA control panel don't exist in the OS. Fail. For 9x I can kinda understand because they probably prioritized 98/Me but NT4 had its own…
  • We already have the applicable release, Project 4.0.
  • OK, so I just installed 3DS MAX 2 on my Windows NT4 desktop. The sentinel driver installation through setupx86.exe worked and the program runs. So yeah, run it on NT4 with real hardware (support did go up to GF 6000 series and I don't think OpenG…
  • If you do get LTSC, please tell me if you can do unit conversions with the supplied calculator (which is the one from Windows 7). It always crashes on me when I try selecting the option.
  • YouTube often uses 100% of my Core Duo T2400 when loading a 360p video. 480p is completely unwatchable. A 720p MP4 video in WMP 9 using K-Lite Codec Pack uses 30% or less of the same CPU. And some other sites are also ridiculous nowadays. Ther…
  • My IBM PC 300GL type 6564-S8U from 1999. Now that I've added a DVD-RW drive, broke it free from the shackles of the S3 Savage4 (replaced with a GeForce FX5700 LE), and added a matching IBM G54 CRT, it has become a considerably more enjoyable machine…
