Well, I can't help to solve the problem, but I want to mention that I have some problems with booting from CD too. Sometimes freeldr hangs while loading ReactOS. Then when I reburn the CD (RW) with the same image or try to boot several times, it boots correctly. Running under Windows I have no probl...

A long long time ago I used to play "The Settlers II" (build-up game) with a friend that way.
Yeah, the good old days :) DOS ruled :D
Well I guess those games are now bannished by multiplayer network games (some of them aren't that bad either...)

I think this is a good idea, but the page shouldn't be in the Wiki. There should be a link on the main page instead that links to "press information" and is updated with every new release. The Wiki has the disadvantage that anybody might write something that is not correct, so the page shouldn't be ...

Where is the point in having 2 mouse pointers on the same screen :?: Do you use one to select a new window/application and the other is used to select items from menus? I don't think this makes much sense. The only example I can think of is a multiplayer game where 2 people sit in front of the PC an...

One other problem I see for the registry after heavy usage over time is fragmentation. Maybe it could be useful to implement an (idle?) thread that defragments the registry database files (as well as harddisks?) This defragmentation process should give the following benefits: 1. Free up unused space...

Ok then I understood you wrong, I thought you mean the Icon.

Pressing backspace to move to the parent directory doesn't indeed work for me too.

I have tried the latest SVN build and preloaded Quemu 0.2.0 and both work for me. I can get from the ".\ReactOS" directory back to the root directoy "C:\". Strange though.

as far as i know it relies on the fact that you cannot edit the registry without running windows that is using this registry ... that's why the emergency console (win2k) is not working when the registry is badly damaged (you need to log in to repair your windows). But I'm not a professional windows ...

Then the registry reapair program / function should be included in the bootloader or emergency tool (that is independent from any information the normal system uses (possible solution: a (dos) prompt + commandline tools???).

Another problem could be security issues with such a solution I think...

I think the registry isn't a good invention at all. It is an evergrowing unmaintainable monster and I had to reinstall windows and all my programs in the last few years at least 3 times due to registry corruption / filesystem problems. Without a registry I wouldn't have had to reinstall all the prog...
