I repost my thread here (viewtopic.php?f=5&t=38296) because I don't have the access to the ftp so I ask the moderators to not move it again please xD I can't post in the off topic section as I'm not a ftp member.
Hello everyone, in the last past few months I have been working on a kernelEx for Windows NT 4.0 which can run softwares designed for new windows's version. I'm writing the functions in inline assembly (I'm using ida) and C. (There is also some code from reactos and wine). I have added several functions in kernel32,user32,gdi32 etc... and now they load some new software. I will release the first version in a few weeks, there are some glitch I need to solve. I want to know from you what new software do you wish to load in NT 4.0 and then I will try to get them load :)
Here, there are some software that work. If you have something you want to load, tell me in the posts :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I would like to see some antivirus on there (particularly Avast) and maybe get Mercury/32 fully working as a service?

Is this against NT 4.0 sp1 or is it something that'll work with sp6

Well, I'm basing my kernelEx on NT 4.0 sp6 because there are a lot of function compared to the sp1 one... Maybe in the next future I will try to get compatibility with the sp1 too ^^

Windows NT 4.0 SP1 is kinda useless by now... SP6 is far more up to date and works better with newer applications, and you can even install USB support with it. What I could do is install Windows NT 4.0 on a hard drive then install SP6 and a few more updates. Keep in mind NT 4.0 ended support throughout 2004-2006.

I'm not sure how much luck you will have getting a current version of Avast working on NT 4.0 since it is a pretty ancient system by now.

However, Avast 4.8 was the last supported version for NT 4.0, along with Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows ME. It was extremly lightweight and could even run on a 486 with 32MB and 50MB hard disk drive space:

Image

Avast 4.8.x was an extremely successful version, and support for it ran from March 2008 to March 2017, a remarkable 9 years!

2017 marks the end of virus definition updates for Avast version 4.8

You can get the final (March 3, 2017) definitions update file in one of three ways:

from the Avast site (yes, it's STILL available, at least for now!):

http://files.avast.com/iavs4pro/vpsupd4.exe

from the Wayback Machine (aka Internet Archive),

https://web.archive.org/web/20170909044 ... psupd4.exe

or from my FTP:

http://sdfox7.com/avast/4.x/vpsupd4.exe

WARNING: It's a 189 MB file! The Internet Archive tends to be slow at serving pages and files, so the download speed from Avast's site or my FTP will be faster.

NOTE: The updates file will only work if you have Avast 4.8 already installed! You can get it from my FTP here (version 4.8.1368) (11/27/09):

http://sdfox7.com/avast/4.x/setupeng.exe (it's 39.9MB)

Ahah yes, betaarchive is one of the forums I frequent :) I didn't know about the images, next time I will use the image uploader, thanks :)

From when does a free product require a lisence key?! Those do not exsist anymore and thus rendering the product useless after 60 days. (Messed it up on my Windows 2000 machine trying to get it to work without a lisence forever, so the trial expired and no longer works...)

Avast no longer requires license keys. Old versions will continue working even after the license has expired:

"Newer versions of Avast Free Antivirus will no longer ask you to register, and older versions will keep working even after they've "expired"."

https://www.avast.com/en-us/registration-free-antivirus

If you still need an old license key, look online, or let me know and I will send one to you.

You really should add support for larger drives than 4 GB with this too.

Wow exciting stuff! I remember using KernelEx for Win 98 a few years back, it was so great to be running a (then) modern Firefox on it.
