Re: Booting Live (0.4.12) stops at swenum.sys

What it's telling you is that boot from USB is not currently supported ;)

People have reported success using this method though: https://reactos.org/wiki/Installing_Rea ... B-RAM_boot

Re: Suggestion: Preliminary release notes for RC

We currently have no good process for the release notes. In fact, the fact that they hadn't yet been finalized has delayed several of the most recent releases. That is to say, we can't provide them them on time, therefore we won't be able to provide them early. If you're interested in helping that p...

Re: Why isn't USB working?

The type of question is "Why is feature X not supported in ReactOS".
And nobody simply means nobody. As in, not a single person in the world. Anybody is free to contribute to the project, but nobody has contributed this particular feature (like lots of others).

Re: Why doesn't the ReactOS vga.sys work in Win 2000?

First of all, our driver is not designed for Windows 2000. If it also doesn't work on Server 2003, then it's worth investigating.

Re: Why isn't USB working?

The answer to this type of question is usually very straightforward: because nobody has implemented it.

Re: writing a driver: why does Windows refuse to load my simple driver?

Your "driver" imports from kernel32. Drivers cannot import user mode libraries. I believe for graphics drivers the rule is you can only import from win32k (and, I suppose, videoprt) or some such. I'm not sure how you even built such a thing. Perhaps you should start with an appropriate sample driver...

Re: So impressed by ReactOS 0.4.14

You'll need to look in the 0.4.13 branch in git, and find the commit matching the "gXXXXXXX" at the end of the iso name. One way to list the commits there is to look at https://github.com/reactos/reactos/commits/releases/0.4.13 So for RC41 you could use the "Clone or Download" button at https://gith...

Re: [SUGGESTION] Join the EU-FOSSA (Free and Open Source Software Auditing) project

Finding security bugs in ReactOS is trivially easy at this point. We don't need help yet, it'd be a waste of money to pay someone bounties for it.

Re: Why isn't my SEH2 try-except statement preventing Page Faults?

Also note that the try-finally won't actually catch the exception, only the try-except will.

Re: Visual Studio2019 compile reactos error

You should use RosBE's CMake, not some other version. There are fixes in there for VSSolution in particular. Other than that, if ntoskrnl doesn't build in the sln, there's not much to be done about it (unless of course you want to dig into the internals of CMake, which you'd be welcome to do). Ninja...

Re: What is the philosophy of ReactOS?

I believe the answer to all of your questions is either "we don't know" or "if/when someone implements it". The OS is currently so incomplete that it's somewhat pointless to even ask many of these questions. Because the timeline for a stable release is completely up in the air (we literally don't kn...

Re: Visual Studio2019 compile reactos error

The solution cannot currently build a working iso. Some of the individual projects may work, but generally it's only useful for editing. To actually build, you need to use Ninja.

Re: Visual Studio2019 compile reactos error

We'll need a little more information to be of any use. 1. Which steps did you use to try to build ROS? 2. What is the exact error? You seem to have cut off the message. 3. At which step of the build does this happen? A complete log of the build process would help. For reference, here's what I'd reco...

Re: ReactOS auf ein Thinkpad T41 installieren, Absturz beim Boot

Das ist ein Bug in VirtualBox. Kannst also bei denen ein Ticket erstellen. Oder wenn Du's einfach zum Laufen bringen willst, versuch evtl. 'ne ältere Version, also 5.2.x oder so.
