Re: ReactOS Application Download Center

This would cause serious liability issues for ReactOS organization, and would require an immense amount of labour to maintain.
And a security nightmare.

Re: osk.exe On Screen Keyboard

No offense, but looking at the source code it is about 0.001% completed; all it is now is a form with hard coded assignments: button21: send "H" to Document 1 in Word. To have a useable OSK, you need at least to read the keyboard layout from regional settings in the registry and map the keys. Then y...

Re: Call for JIRA sherpas

As a matter of fact, I had a similar idea a while ago. I took inspiration from the way Windows and Linux report errors. It's basically a simple "do you want to send an error report?". Now - I am not a developer, but I ask this: Is it not possible to create some smallish app that generates a text fi...

Could you identify the network card model?
Hyper-V has 2 options, the Legacy network adapter identifies as "Intel 21140-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter (Emulated)". The standard network adapter identifies simply as "Microsoft Virtual Machine Bus Network Adapter".

Re: ReactOS in Virtual PC 2007

I'm running the recent builds in Hyper-V on Windows 8.1, and also not able to install network drivers (extracted from integration services disk).
The actual integrtation services MSI will install, but when rebooting, receive error "Can't load boot driver 'System32\drivers\vmbus.sys'".

Re: Mouse Click Action

If such a feature were implemented, it should be done the same way as in MS Windows (XP Tablet Edition 2005 and later) where the feature is enabled when the computer type is identified as tablet. If it were active in other circumstances, the change in behaviour from standard would be too annoying. I...

Learn a bit of C++, learn the basics of the NT kernel. Learn about source code control using GIT and SVN.
After that, you will KNOW how to download the source code. It is useless to download the source before you know what it is.

Re: exe execute in linux

if we implement all windows PE and .dll library or we use reactos .exe module into linux kernel then can we execute direct .exe files into linux??? Yes, it's called Wine https://www.winehq.org/ but by itself it has nothing to do with ReactOS. ReactOS however uses some Wine components that are open ...

Re: Samba-TNG Package

I was thinking along similar lines myself. Samba-TNG seems to not have any work done on it in several years. And, near as I can tell, it needs to be brought in pretty close to the OS core to enable functionality like mapped drives, active directory authentication, etc. Seems like folding it in (aft...

Re: Samba-TNG Package

If you're brave enough to try it out, you'd best try connecting to an NT4 or 2000 file server. With newer file servers, you'd have to tweak down a lot of security settings for sure.

Re: Idea for ReactOS about WinRot

There are 2 types of applications : those which depend on others, and those which don't. Yes, the idea is to sandbox, but to let the choice: - 1 : To allow communication between applications by settings (right click on application folder and dialog box when search to go out of its sandbox). - 2 : O...

Re: Idea for ReactOS about WinRot

Most registry/file pollution is not created at install time, but at run time of an application. The uninstaller is unaware of what the application has done on the system in its lifetime. That's what I said. The idea I talk about would solve this problem. I disagree that would solve it as a clear-cu...
