  • I've also had some minor SSL-related issues with the latest extended kernel; VMware Workstation 6.5 wouldn't install unless I deleted the openssl executable in the temporary setup folder at the start of the installation. Did you select XP-compati…
  • The version from XP SP3 (April 2008) also works.
  • I also have a little discovery that a friend on another forum discovered, for those who plan to use multiple monitors with win2k. v16a of the extended core is the latest version in English, but multi-monitor support is broken; but you can copy the v…
  • The advanced diagnostics cassette sounds awesome! I'm gonna listen to it when working out. Is that it really it? Nobody seems to have ever seen any commercial cassette programs. Apparently Peter Norton wrote in one of his books that no…
  • The only known flaw with USP 5.1, alongside the KB888111 issue is buggy USB 1.1 drivers. I never paid much attention to that due to a lack of USB 1.1-only hardware. I'm surprised by the broken Realtek implementation (though Dell is one to be nonc…
  • Are you running PAE with > 4 GB RAM? If so, I'd like to note that Creative drivers don't like being pushed into memory addresses above 4 GB; at least in the case of the X-Fi but I wouldn't be surprised if it were the same for their other products…
  • This method has been known to fix many hardware issues in windows 9x: https://forum.winworldpc.com/discussion/11357/how-to-improve-the-stability-of-windows-9x#latest
  • It doesn't seem to be listed above but I've discovered another limitation of the NT 3.51 installer: it refuses to install if the C drive is not recognized (like FAT32), but doesn't mind if other volumes use an "unknown" file system. Then using th…
  • The servers went offline at either 12:45 or 1:05 pm EDT. Windows Millennium Edition: the endless possibilities start end now.
  • They're still going strong as of 10:35 pm EDT (UTC -5), Looks like only a few hours left!
  • Yeah, antiviruses just don't like keygens and cracks unprotects. In practice, the vast majority aren't malicious (especially older ones from the '90s and early 2000s) though the way they are packaged is apparently quite similar to actual malware. If…
  • Thanks for this nice assortment of "professional" software. It should do well on my win2k/2k3 machines!
  • This happened on my ThinkPad T60 with Mobility Radeon X1300. I hooked up some old V-Gear webcam, which allowed me to capture video through the supplied software (which is actually Microsoft's AMCAP for Video for Windows-compatible video capture d…
  • The Windows Audio service was introduced in XP. That is weird. First video capture in virtualdub 1.10.4 craps out on my win2k laptop then this... Did you install USP 5.1? I know that the hotfix that introduces HDA support to Windows 2000, KB88…
  • Here is a newer one from 2014: https://www.techspot.com/drivers/driver/file/information/17447/
  • They created a "Windows Throwback" desktop theme for Windows 10, which added some wallpapers and replaced most system sounds with the "tada" from... Windows Vista! Because that is what people put on their PCs in 1985. Must be abandoned. Upload to…
  • @Bry89 said: I honestly hope you're joking there Nope. Productivity is antonymous with smartphones. Many people seem to change them every year or two just for what? I could understand their purpose as entry-level cameras (which would, ho…
  • This may help: https://forum.winworldpc.com/discussion/11357/how-to-improve-the-stability-of-windows-9x Try another type of win98se/me install media (except for select, the product key for that is unknown). The retail full version on here gave…
  • Google tried forcing this on me about 8 years ago but guess what I didn't have! Then when I tried signing up for mail.ru (because of the numerous disadvantages of American e-mail services), they couldn't even reach my phone. Thankfully I gave fac…
  • On real hardware or a VM? What did the BSOD say? I do know that it doesn't like many ThinkPad BIOSes and calls them "not fully ACPI-compliant". Emulators would fall under the same umbrella, but for a valid reason.
  • That technical reference library CD-ROM has digital copies of "Windows 3.1 Made Easy" and "Windows 95 Made Easy" by Tom Sheldon, "Upgrade or repair your PC" by Aubrey Pilgrim, as well as "DOS Made Easy, Fourth Edition" by "HS" (can't find much about…

  • Have you tried in safe mode? I looked up a similar incident and NTVDM worked in that case. So a driver or startup program may be interfering with it. My win2k boxes had an issue with "PowerTweaks" (mmm.exe) where clicking on the toolbar in any WO…
  • Have you tried replacing the NTVDM.exe and NTVDMD.dll with those from another XP machine? You'll probably need to disable WFP to make that happen. Does it have the same level of updates as the other XP machines?
  • and the paid support is only available for volume licence holders, not home users.

  • Definitely. As I said earlier it is doing better than XP at preserving its market share.

  • I heard that DX 9.0c was flaky on win98 (increased system instability, incomplete implementation). Mixing VxD and WDM drivers is also known for generating instability on 9x systems. In any event not many games compatible with Windows 98 make use …
  • There are no viruses, just false positives, especially on original Microsoft CD-ROMs (Read Only Memory, so no one could have infected it along the way). Try reporting it to your antivirus vendor and hope they care about 20 year old software. T…
  • I view 7 more like I did XP in 2011: a market-leading OS product with solid software support. Hardware support would have been the same if M$ hadn't "compelled" Intel to give up on Windows 7. Those Canadian square wheels should have sold like …

  • An attempt to replace the NTVDM/WOW32 subsystem with the far superior one from Windows Server 2003 SP2 (which is the same one from XP) has failed due to missing functions in ntdll.dll and apphelp.dll. I'll be back for you, XP. We already got your…
  • I think that was Microsoft Edge Chromium. I've never used it but I do know that the old UWP Edge integrated with Windows Defender and would immediately delete any downloads identified as malicious. In that case it would be Edge + Defender checkin…
