Re: Windows NT 3.5 Source Code Leak

You can see that it says source1a.782 so it's from the NT3.5-782 code.

Re: Porting dwm from windows build 9909 to windows 10 rtm

The simplest option would be to modify the theme atlas (stored as a png in the msstyles) as well as set the msstyles border size to 1px. That is pretty much all that was done. You can use the theme atlas from 9909 for inspiration but you absolutely can't use it as a drag-drop replacement. They are i...

Re: Clarity about box shots for abandonware pictures

IIRC The way I went with the box scans was I tool the labels out the jewel case and scanned them. For paper boxes I put a little wieght inside to hold it flat against the scan bed and scanned them too. Unless you don't have a scanner, then I'd recommend building a little cardboard stand to put your ...

Re: Install Game Boy Operating System on a virtual machine

I believe there was some project that got a form of *nix running on the GBA.

Problem is the GBA lacks a memory protection system, which Linux requires. Also does Windows CE I believe.

Re: No Windows CE 1.0-3.0 on the server?

The problem is images are built for the targeted device. Useless without the hardware. Assuming you can perform a rom dump.

If someone had the full platform builder for the version then yeah, it'll be usefull for preservation. I believe it was available on CD for early versions.

Re: Longhorn 4033

DCE in these days ran off uxdesksb.exe. Which also happens to run the theming engine.

Then go install the WIC from .Net 3 and watch it break themes and much of Avalon. (including .Net and the .Net explorer components as well)

Re: Longhorn 4033

So pretty much, one of the most broken builds of Longhorn.

You still won't get the components enabled anyways- you'd have to install them yourself.

With the winlogon hack, activation isn't called at all anymore. So it won't be a problem.

Re: Windows Server 2008 R2 in IA-64 architecture?

Well there is the slow x86 emulation. But otherwise, not too many native ia-64 programs.

Driver support is the problem, native drivers are going to be sparser.

One of the simplest IA-64 platforms to test on is the RX1620 by HP. This would be a halfway decent machine to play with it. Stay away from the BL machines though. They're blades and you'll have a heck of a time figuring out how to start and cool it without the necessary chassis. I highly doubt you'l...

Re: How to resign explorer.exe?

The problem is the sha checksum. Even if you extract a working certificate and inject, it was signed with that checksum. They won't match and Windows will throw off another certificate error and you'll be back at square one.

Windows 10 is NT. Fundamentally, every NT build is evolved from way back in the NT-OS/2. So there would be many things similar, and many things changed over time.

Re: How does the NT 3.5 beta source work? How can I compile

For me, the only reason I ever wanted NT3.x code was to study the difference between user-mode and kernel-mode GDI and how Microsoft performed the change.

Essentially, to compile the code there are three ways to go about this: A) NTOSBe Fairly straightforward once you set the variables right. However you need to refactor the code as well as convert all references from i386 to x86. And with big code like this, good luck. In addition, I still haven't fi...

And yet I believe you haven't used these builds. 4033 does not have that "please wait" on startup where it says that for a long time depending on the machine. All the way to 405x this still happens. In addition, it leaks far less memory, has a fully functional preview pane (with options) and WinFS t...
