Re: Application installer aborts due to Windows version WinXP; fix possible?

Hey learn_more, thanks for taking the time to respond to my question. Acridity is always the way to go for any thriving OS community. I did not ask for development efforts to getting any particular app to run, as it will likely be a waste of time, considering the targets of ROS. It's tax software, ...

Re: Application installer aborts due to Windows version WinXP; fix possible?

Good thing you included the app you wanted to try,
so people could look into getting it working.

(Or at least include a debug log from the crash?)

Re: AFD returns STATUS_PENDING when network connection is too fast

This is already treated on CORE-17142 , but here I would like to request help from the community to debug more properly this issue. From what I've traversed the code, the culprit is located at drivers/network/afd/afd/read.c specfically at the function TryToSatisfyRecvRequestFromBuffer if( CantReadM...

Re: New Theme Creation Questions

There used to be something from the authors of StyleXP, not sure if that's still around / working,
StyleBuilder was that name according to a quick google search.

Re: Modern Windows Apps Are Ugly!

Is it just me, or do many Windows 10 apps just look ugly? So I load up my virtual machine of Windows 98 SE and head to the Address Book - looks fine to me, very handy. I load up People on Windows 10 - the app looks ugly. Windows scrapped Address Book, went to Contacts, then went to People (app). Us...

Re: Help diagnosing a problem with cygwin/samba on ROS

Looking at the logging and the snippet you pasted, the open flags do not match at all.
Good luck on your endeavors finding the problem, I am not going to play a game of 'find the actual code'.

Re: Help diagnosing a problem with cygwin/samba on ROS

That test failing on ROS would essentially confirm that a bug exists in ROS in the API call NtOpenFile(). How should it be formally reported if confirmed ? There must be something lost if your test worked in ROS. The only obvious difference between the pseudocode and my test in Delphi would be the ...

Re: Help diagnosing a problem with cygwin/samba on ROS

I'm currently looking at detecting ROS and activating that workaround in a custom cygwin1.dll since I'm more familiar with that code. Now I just need a clean and accurate way to identify ROS using API calls that exist in Windows and ROS. We don't have an api to detect ROS, precisely to not have peo...

Re: Help diagnosing a problem with cygwin/samba on ROS

I actually did write a test for this, but since I do not really do much programming in C I did it under a tool I'm more familiar with which was Delphi. The test binary produced different results under Win10 than ROS, but in the end it showed that was not an issue with validation. --blub-- ps: You u...

or find a test like that in the existing test suite

Re: Help diagnosing a problem with cygwin/samba on ROS

I wonder if someone could help me build a small workaround for this problem. Basically what happens is this.. The library(cygwin) calls NtOpenFile using a path and the call works completely and the application gets back a File Handle. The library then it tries to reopen that same file by calling Nt...
