Re: I finally figured out how to make Win7 not suck; might be ready to say goodbye to XP

NT 6.x "security" is based on the idiotic premise of "hackers can't use your computer if your computer is already useless". It's worse than any virus I've gotten in XP. These adjustments effectively un -compromise the computer. If you have no clue what you are doing, it's best you don't meddle with...

7) lower the UAC slider to its lowest level, then seize ownership of "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)" according to the instructions presented here: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/forums/windows/en-US/3dd0d2f9-5b2f-46df-950f-36887c98369c/give-full-permission-for-the-users-in-program-f...

I need help making ReactOS for Visual Studio. Also, how can I visually edit GUI's ?
I usually edit them in the resource editor of visual studio, then copy the generated code over to the rc file.

Well, that's quite good news. I wonder what it is expecting that XP does not have?
Up to date certificates?
Or security features from the last century.

Not a problem. Working on fixing issues now. I feel your concerns about people who make broad claims and then don't deliver - so expect patches - just not tomorrow morning. This is a free project and after all, I'm not being paid. I am however happy to contribute what fixes I come up with myself. F...

Re: Project Mizu

It COULD but would prob look like crap. Well, here's the thing. Until the devs support 1080 by 1080 icons or larger, they will have an amount if crapiness to them. However, the icons will have 3840 by 3840 for future scalability. Don't worry, each file is only 600kb on average. At this point it is ...

Hi all
1. ReactOS needs money for development
2. This forum has a lot of users
Why aren't there any advertisements on this forum to sponsor the ReactOS development?
'a lot of users'

not really, no.

I suggest hosting ReactOS in the good ol' USA.
if you are concerned about privacy, then moving to the USA is the worst move you can make.

Re: Ways to run 16-bit Windows and MS-DOS applications on modern Windows.

You do realize your 'generic installshield 3 installer' links back to our forum, right?
So unless you are trying to gather clicks for some community, why not link directly to the forum post here?

as for the others, this looks like a cheap gather some random links and dump them here...

Just make sure it isn't a huge file.

I mean, it wouldn't be as simple as making sure it runs on Windows 10 due to different features that Windows 10 has which ReactOS, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 doesn't have.
