  1. Yeah, I know. The whole purpose of rebuilding your ISO using CDIMAGE is for those perfectionist who wants the ISO to be 100% legit and original for collection purposes. If you are just trying to repair a computer, patch out a few bytes to remove ei.cfg and it should be fine. ~The good old days when TechBench is still online... You can download everything in almost all languages.~ Regards, SnowBall
  2. It is better to rebuild the ISO using CDIMAGE and it will match the original hash. You can remove ei.cfg but that does not give you the original ISO. Also, it is already in the ISO Downloader. Regards, SnowBall
  3. Nice, also don't forget you can build your own ISO image that match the original hash using CDIMAGE when the edition and language you need is missing. Also, bit of spamming but here is my collection of Windows 7 ISO images downloaded from TechBench a few years ago. If anybody need it, send me a message. Regards, SnowBall
  4. Not sure yet. After testing the NTVDMx64 by Leecher1337, it does not work if Secure Boot is enabled. I tried to merge WineVDM and NTVDMx64 together to make it possible for both 16 Bit Windows apps and DOS apps to run under Windows 10 64 Bit but it did not go smoothly. I started a new one based on WineVDM and it can not handle DOS apps correctly... I am still working on it and if you want to test it now, simply download WineVDM. My version is not much better than the latest version of WineVDM (my one is a little better at running Windows 1.x apps but unstable). Regards, SnowBall
  5. Probably. I had a huge list of service tags that I've been collecting since 2006 and I put them in one by one, 90% didn't work and non of them unlocks any Vista or XP. Really ond service tags won't work. Downloading anything Pre-Vista from Microsoft for free is almost impossible... It would be good if some OEMs still have them for download. Anyway, I am sure not a lot of people want to use the unsupported Vista and XP is just dying. Now people should prioritize on Windows 7 and Office 2010 as the extended support will end soon. Who knows when Microsoft will take down all the Windows 7 downloads just like Office 2007.
  6. I also have a few Windows XP Dell OEM images but not from service tags. I got them years ago and they are still sitting on my hard drive. The Windows 7 image was last updated in 2016... Unlikely Dell is going to update it... Not sure if it is possible to find a service tag that could unlock Windows XP Downloads. Regards, SnowBall
  7. Depending on what the Service Tag is... If it is for Windows 7, then no. If it is a new model released in 2019 with Windows 10 1809 or 1903 on it, possibly yes. I don't know much about Dell. Regards, SnowBall
  8. True, I am pretty sure most of the people here can understand English and it is good to post in English. For users who just can't understand English, they should at least Google Translate it and post in the English forums. I think the International forums belong to people who have projects in their language, language packs and questions about that language (text encoding and etc. that requires people to understand that language). It does not really belong to normal discussion and postings if the English forum covers it all. Well, it could depend, say I have a French project and a question about Office 2010 French and I post it both forums, it would be double posting and spamming to a degree. What should be posted in both forums is Tutorials and Guides (e.g: How to install Windows 10 French in the French forum and How to install Windows 10 in the English forum) and other stuff where it is necessary. Regards, SnowBall
  9. Actually, sometimes the info provided in those forums are worth reading. Your first language doesn't mean you prefer everything in that language. I can't read Turkish, Italian Spanish nor Dutch, makes things harder. If I only understand Arabic and not any other languages, then I will have to rely on Google Translate. Google Translated text is much better than guessing for the meaning, right? Anyway, I know that it is pretty hard to achieve that and I don't know much blogs or forums offer this except for big companies or government ones. Regards, SnowBall
  10. Sure, thanks. I can only read/speak 3 languages and English is my main one. I don't know about other people but by the look if it, there is not much native English speakers here and it would be convenient to support their language. I can't read Italian for example and it is very annoying that you have to manually Google Translate whenever you visit another thread. You are saying that it is initially an English forum, then it would be good to tell the users to translate whatever they post in the Non-English sub-forums for the sake of *us*. I am pretty sure the Turkish forum was added somewhere in 2008. Regards, SnowBall
  11. Hi, I was reading through the international forums and I found it very incontinent if you can't understand anything while having to rely on Google Translate. Is it possible to set your language to something for example French, and the whole forum becomes French, regardless of that the language the poster posted in. Or I can change it to Russian and making everything Russian, and same thing for Spanish, Italian, German, Chinese, Japanese or plain English. I know this sounds impossible but it makes life easier as we all come from different countries and speak different languages (I guess that is the reason for those international forums). Without the *vast majority* of people understanding the what is being posted in those forums, it defeats the whole purpose of having them at all. This only a suggestion, so don't take it seriously if it is very hard to achieve if possible. Regards, SnowBall
  12. Don't run the program... Excel files (xlsx) is actually a zip archive. Simply extract the file and edit out the password. Depending on how you've encrypted it and if you are not using Encrypt with Password, then it should be all fine. If you still can't crack the password, sent it to me and I might give it a go (only if there is no sensitive info and you don't mind). Regards, SnowBall
  13. Ok, for some reason you can't connect. What version are you using? If you are using anything that is relying on TechBench (before 3.05), then update to a newer version. By looking at the JIT log, you have at lease 8.00 and the version should not be a problem. If you still can't generate a download link, I can get one for you. Also, install all Windows updated and IE updates. Regards, SnowBall

  15. Actually, PROGMAN.EXE from Windows 3.1 works on Windows 10 64 Bit... With my NTVDM. It looks horrible and doesn't even have an icon on my taskbar! Even worst, you can't close it without signing out because it was designed as a shell. A few pictures: 1. Got it running, 2. Things just doesn't work... 3. When you try to close it... End your Windows session? 4. Sure! I'll see whats going to happen... Another dialog? 5. NO! All my unsaved work!!! I probably shouldn't click "Yes" Regards, SnowBall
