This function is a stub in ROS and will raise an exception when called. It's simply not implemented.

Re: Possibilities For NTVDM and other Sub-Systems

I'm less saying that I don't understand what Erkin is talking about, and more saying that he's making things up that don't exist/don't have wider support from the community and then selling them as though they did.

Re: ReactOS on Toshiba A135-S4527

I also advice not to use acpi-hal as the pnp for it is completely bonkers I would not second that as general advice. The standard HAL is a fallback, which you should definitely try if your hardware has any trouble -- however if the ACPI HAL doesn't cause problems, please use that, as it's more wide...

Re: Elite Dangerous/Star Citizen

Well, if a browser does not work, you are miles away from getting any game working. FYI, most games are _way_ less complex than modern browsers. They generally just require a window and some API to draw on it (of course DX11 as an important example of such an API _is_ complex; but that's a part of ...

Re: ROS 0.4.13dev working with USB & Ethernet on Thinkpad T430

To enable experimental write support in NTFS, you can add a DWORD value named MyDataDoesNotMatterSoEnableExperimentalWriteSupportForEveryNTFSVolume with the value 1 to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Ntfs. It will take effect after a reboot. USB3 support is only required for USB3 controllers,...

Re: How to Install Virtual Box Guest Additions

The drive that ReactOS is installed on is C: by definition, so clearly you're doing something strange. Can you describe your configuration in more detail? You say your host machine is Win10 and installed on C: -- so what is the configuration of the ReactOS virtual machine (and is it really a VM or a...

Re: Wine Sync

It's just a delay. Syncs are done fully to one version (because mismatches break things) and the version chosen is whatever is the latest at the time. Additionally, 0.4.12 was branched quite a while ago, so the release notes don't really reflect the current state of development. Though in this parti...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 released

USB audio (or video) isn't going to work, but HID & mass storage should work okay (no phones using MTP though). USB network adapters could be particularly interesting, as they've formerly been on the cusp of working.
Note that there's no USB 3.0 support.

Re: Trouble compiling ReactOS after importing qcap.dll from Wine

I might give some more specific advice if and when I find a minute to read through these files and errors in detail, but one thing that should help: get rid of precomp.h and all related diffs. The files as provided by Wine should work. If they don't, then you can start looking at problems relating t...

Re: Lenovo Y520 15IKBN - Blue Screen of Death

As already mentioned, USB boot is not yet supported and known to be broken. However, even once that's fixed, we have no USB3 support at this time, so booting from that will not work for the foreseeable future.

Re: ReactOS-Qubes integration

I don't think I understand your point, what exactly are you asking?

But generally, I don't think this problem needs more Jira work or "coordination", it needs someone willing and able to test and/or solve the problems that come up when running ROS under Qubes -- i.e. less talking, more doing.

Re: How to restore system after installing problematic driver

If you need to make modifications to the system in order to get it to boot, simply build an ISO with those modifications already built-in. Other than that, a good trick is to have two hard drives or partitions, storing the OS on one and any data or software on the other. That way you can reinstall a...

Re: Design Team

I think you're trying to over-organize. You are free to contribute whatever you wish to the project, there's no need for a "design team" or any such thing. This works the exact same way for code contributions -- the only reason people get added to a "development team" is that over time, their contri...
