Re: just installed ReactOS on a VM and was greeted with this error

Uh, no, I'm working on about a hundred bugs already. So it's much more likely for me (or any other dev) to want to help if I can look at the backtrace in an existing debug log and see whether this is code that I'm familiar with and might have an easy fix for.

Re: just installed ReactOS on a VM and was greeted with this error

How exactly your VM is configured is additional information. A screenshot of the "Virtual Machine Settings" dialog would be one way, a copy of the .vmx file even better.
A debug log is also additional information.

Re: The Start menu modern

The modern start menu is not implemented in ROS. So there's no shortcut...

Oh. My. $deity. Read the fucking title of the thread! This is so horrendously off-topic that I'm surprised you aren't all banned yet.
Move the icon talk elsewhere.

Guys this is spam, stop replying to it.
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=17154 is the original thread (don't reply to that either!)

Mark, impressively consistent! :D

There's no relation.

You really should create your own thread is what I think.

Is it realiable enough
No. ROS is full of security vulnerabilities, it's prone to crashing, and crashes are more likely to cause data loss than on other OSes.
There is no practical use case for which it is reliable enough. That's why we call it Alpha (not even Beta).

Re: just installed ReactOS on a VM and was greeted with this error

Screen debugging will switch back to the debug log in case of a crash. So yes, it would be useless in this case -- but you don't need screen debugging in a VM; all the common hypervisors support serial ports.

Re: Language C

There are operating systems written in C# and probably Java... it's just a question of how much effort you want to put into the toolchain and execution environment. There are at least three aproaches I can think of: 1. You could create/use a toolchain that will compile these languages to native code...

Re: Virtualization Question

For Windows-to-Windows connections, Remote Desktop supports what you're asking using a feature called RemoteApp. You can see if that feature is supported by some Linux clients (Google comes up with at least SeamlessRDP, which sounds like what you're looking for... I didn't look into it though). If y...

Re: OS development question.

If you use the same compiler, you should get the same executable (minus timestamps and such, and ReactOS bugs). Windows applications do not use syscalls directly, they instead link to system dlls (ntdll.dll contains the syscall stubs, but Win32 applications aren't usually supposed to use those NT fu...
