Re: So impressed by ReactOS 0.4.14

I am a bit confused here. You refer to ReactOS 0.4.14 but on the website latest available release is 0.4.12. Where did you get your 0.4.14 from?

Installation hangs on VirtualBox

Installation of 0.3.7 hangs while copying files on VirtualBox. It hangs at varying stages depending on options selected such as language etc. With default settings it hangs near 69% completion of copying at the file wmilib.sys

Any help? Is there a way I can install Reactos manually?

{little off topic} The problem with Windows registry is not only with its central location. Whenever an installer installs a program it creates/modifies a lot of entries (may not be for a simple program but more so for most of the commercial programs) in many places in the registry. Even a clean uni...

;-) On second thought, my post above is contradicting itself ;-) sorry for the lack of clarity of thought. I guess I should have said During the early developmental stage represented by the alpha builds, please keep the size to the minimum by carrying the least no. of non-essential components. Once ...

One of the reasons Windows is disliked is due to the lot it ships along with the OS. Definitely ReactOS would do better not to include everything and its cousin along. Further keeping ReactOS as lite as possible during its developmental state makes me more willing to download a smaller file and test...

[Z98] With many thanks to [Harteex] above for the right solution, I am now back into my account. I became so happy it worked, that I simply logged-in and out many times and also from another browser too!! :-) (I would think by default this setting should not be enabled as it looks like a power user ...

I got a brain wave! Went and requested for a new password under the pretext that I forgot my older one. Followed the procedures and was able to log-in using my old nick. But.... But.....

Unable to change email address in profile

Looks like I am unable to change my email address in the profile.
When I try to do that I get the error "Password does not match records" though I gave the exact password I used to log-in. However changing everything else while keeping the email address same works.
Any ideas?
