lol well looks like they pulled windows 7 completely from there.
theres still a bunch of other crap like xp and vista, but thats probably not what anyone would want
glad i got in when i did
It's probably because it's soon 22th October, well only a bit more than a month - till the retail launches.
Just to confirm this thing works perfectly, I've downloaded WinXP and VS2008 without problems, this is awesome for students (I'm studying at Higher Technical Examination Programme (HTX) in Denmark), and I personally can't afford using that much funds for an OS and IDE.
On the other hand, I wonder how many registry entries Microsoft uses to run the WindowsOS, gives me thoughts about Microsoft filling the registry with snappy keys that don't do anything
Good evening WinCerters!
I've recently started on a new education. In the building we have a wireless network without protection on it. However to use it external you have to sign in on a VPN network, that is run in the unsecured network. The most things works fine, like WebAccess and IM programs, however Thunderbird and Steam + some other applications are unable to establish connection (might be because they use ports that are blocked by the VPN to access the internet).
I was thinking about somehow rerouting all network activity on my laptop to be through port 80 (web port - open)?
Or to use my other laptop at home as a proxy server? that can route all my outgoing connection out to the needed servers, as I'll have all ports open.
Thanks in advance!
I meant a tool that can easily create msi installer i.e in simpler way + GUI for my own program setup
Well if there is a guide that can be automated and integrated into an app, then why not
Here is something that would be useful for UpdatePack makers who use all the hotfixes that come out on kbupdate.info
The hotfixes on those articles mostly you have to request them via the "View and request hotfix" link, the thing is some hotfixes are available on the View and req link before Microsoft even publishes the KB Article for them example KB961729 had no KB Article yet but it is available via the View and request hotfix link
Soon microsoft will come arount and publish the kb article and let it be known that this fix exist and what it does, but it does take months sometimes
To find these hotfixes that have no kb article but are waiting to be published all you need to do is use this url and add a kb number on the end
A program that can scan for these hotfixes would be great (after it finds a hotfix on that link it then checks to see if a article is available, if it is it will not list it in the results)
Maybe you can enter a number to start/end with example 961729 to 999999. It would be nice if it could also check what versions of windows those hotfixes were for example xp sp4, vista sp3 or both
IDK I just wish there was a better way to do it other than manualy
'Bruteforce' the MS server, wait for reply, if 404 igonre, if not open html and get windows version and add to a list?Wow so we can request any software here? How about a program to save a flash game directly? (as offline file), it would be so cool: http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?sho...amp;#entry48579 (original idea by ccl0). Thanks
That would be rather hard, it could scan the html for .swf link files, but usually on gaming sites there are loads of .swf files all around (commercials, spam), but then the user should select one .swf file from a list.Or maybe either a good Windows installer maker/creator with comprehensive GUI and simple features etc personally i'd love it too...
Anyway hopefully it/they would work fine on any Windows OS too (e.g 98, Xp, 2003, Vista, 7 etc) :thumbsup_anim: Btw sorry for just making double posts, but i've just got this that as a different idea thanks again
Windows Installer maker that does what?Make a legacy win9x slipstreamer customizer. How about that?
If there is a manual or some kind of guide that users manually follow - that could be programmed into an app, then why not.
Microsoft developers are crazy sometimes, but I like the fact that even though it's a serious organization, that they make jokes inside their OS.
Hi guys! It has been a while I've posted here, but I've been lurking a lot. (mostly news)
Anyways, since I'm an experienced C# programmer, I want to .. well do something with my skills, and hopefully improve them.
I've coded the Extension Manager program thingy a while back, but I'm looking for something that people needs.
As this actually is a Windows forum, I thought it would be a good idea to ask here about what kind of software people needs!
Remember though, that my skills have restrictions, and I cannot fulfill all things that you suggest for an application.
Looking forward for some feedback on this.

Happy Birthday guys!
I can't believe this, I was bored so I opened my RAM area in WinHex and then looked at what msnmsgr.exe (Windows Live Messenger) was using. I opened the main file (msnmsgr.exe) and then scrolled randomly down, with the hope of finding anything.. And here are the results!
FOUND IT! :lol:
You can make them smaller in the settings menu for the taskbar.
Been using it for a while and simply love it! Missing the support for virtual ODDs though.
Thanks Denny, but too late
Ah well, I some of it back from backup CDs I found
Thanks for you replies guys!
But I just got a new one, just going to re-get a lot of data
Wow thanks for putting me in the list
Happy birthsday mate!!
Great it's working, because I didn't even have an XP machine to test on..
You need to press 'Apply OEM info' in order for changes to take effect.
Thanks for confirming the OEM logo thing.
Hm.. I just got a bug report in saying that the XP logo still won't change, can anyone confirm? I have only Vista Business x32 installed
So, updated once again... Now v1.2.. Noticed a bunch of bugs while adding new features (pretty lucky huh?)
Changelog for v1.2v1.2 - 28.10.08
- Switched to .NET v2.0 instead of .NET v3.5, no need for long waiting time downloading .NET v3.5 anymore!
- Changed Start Page content
- Added 'Re-build icon cache'
- Added new icon index
- OEM info is now loaded at startup
- Added 'Check for updates', so you can check for updates trough EM without opening your browser
- Bugfix #11 - EM would display a folder if you cancel the 1st dialog when browsing for files
- Bugfix #12 - If current icon/resource file wasn't found, EM manager would exit
- Bugfix #13 - EM would change the new icon file, even if you cancelled the 2nd dialog
- Bugfix #14 - Resource index was assigned wrong to the registry, should be working now
- Bugfix #15 - Fixed wrong XP OEM values
- Bugfix #16 - Fixed XP OEM Logo not being changed
Source code is now over 1000 lines in length!
mm, I get your point, and I don't get you wrong. Thanks for telling me that actually!
I will try looking deeper into it, it depends on if I have used any functions from 3.5, that doesn't exist in 2.0.
Done, from now on, version 1.2 and higher of EM will be running using .NET v2.0.
Any suggestions for what I could add to this app are very welcome.
