Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 in Real Steel (how to)

I unplugged the Intel 335 (experimenting) and reconnected the Samsung 850 EVO (websurfing). Without an antivirus, I never login to my email in KATRELL. I got ClamWin to install (even though it has no real-time watch) and run, but it reported that it scanned no directories, no files, and found no vir...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 in Real Steel (how to)

It was time to take it back to basics; but first, I need to share a new quirk. 0.4.7. in the old ASUS mobo allowed me to plug anything at all into the USB. At one time, I had three 256MB HP flash drives, an 8GB Sandisk flash drive, my Pentax X-5 camera, and an outboard SSD on a USB sata tail all plu...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 in Real Steel (how to)

I’m digressing a bit here, but I have read many posts from people moaning about the Start Menu. Really? If my opinion’s worth anything to the Team, I think the ReactOS Start Menu is a bit snazzier than the Windows Start Menu. https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/f/4e1d58f7-3b5c-49...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 in Real Steel (how to)

Unlike my Corsair install where MP4s have the VLC icon and clicking on them starts them playing; in this install (the original Samsung SSD) MP4s won’t play unless I first open VLC; then I have to open the file from within VLC. ReactOS plays the downloaded YouTube (720) perfectly without any glitches...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 in Real Steel (how to)

ReactOS kicks another GOAL! Using Firefox (in KATRELL), I wanted to see if I could watch YouTubes (without audio). It turns out that so long as I leave it on the default view and select “360”, it plays not too badly. The resolutions offered went all the way up to 4k! Next (still in KATRELL), I downl...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 in Real Steel (how to)

This is AnyRail 5.18.1. I have a license for 5, which is the last version to support XP, Vista, and 7 (all three together). I also have a license for AnyRail 6, which the creator split into two versions (one for XP, one for beyond). I created this simple demonstration without having to activate the ...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 in Real Steel (how to)

Obviously, I didn’t create this SketchUp drawing in ReactOS, but it opened, I could do simple changes (slowly), and the orbit had a slight delay. It worked better unmaximized. https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/f/4e1d58f7-3b5c-4964-9d6b-d08d0f16ac18/ddjfaxi-b5b5e3ca-a93e-4b35-99...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 in Real Steel (how to)

Adobe Reader 9 opens files quite fast and scrolls well. https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/f/4e1d58f7-3b5c-4964-9d6b-d08d0f16ac18/ddjfaw6-0948900f-00e1-4342-88fe-031dd778f8ac.jpg?token=eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJzdWIiOiJ1cm46YXBwOjdlMGQxODg5ODIyNjQzNzNhNWYwZDQxNWVhM...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 in Real Steel (how to)

I’ve been using the Samsung install to browse the web with Firefox 48. I tried Wine Internet Explorer but it is very slow to load pages. It performs its main job, which is to allow access to the Applications Manager. Firefox 48 will happily run Google Streetview, albeit slowly; it doesn’t do too bad...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 in Real Steel (how to)

That sounds fantastic. I've got my fingers crossed for you! I'm posting this reply from KATRELL (my ReactOS PC). I can't get ReactOS/Firefox 48 to make website shortcuts. So on KARETTA (one of my Win7 PCs), I used Firefox Quantum to create a desktop shortcut to "Off Topic". Then, via USB flash drive...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 in Real Steel (how to)

You’re exactly right, dizt3mp3r. Twelve is a very different animal to Nine. With Firefox, I’m discovering which websites it does and doesn’t like. Ebay is too bloated, doesn’t cooperate, and takes about five minutes to close down. Google News (I’m a bit of a news junkie) seems to work okay even thou...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 in Real Steel (how to)

Deciding to make the most of the outboard sata cabling, I unplugged the Samsung SSD, plugged in an old Intel 335 80GB, and did another install. I installed SSDlife Free 2.2.39 and launched it. Just like with 0.4.7, it told me there was no SSD. Next, I installed Office 2000. This (to my knowledge) re...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 in Real Steel (how to)

Yes, I chose my words poorly ("down-clocked"), it was after midnight and I was tired.
"Unimplemented" and "CPU-Z" are terms I don't understand. Thanks for your replies.
Does this suggest the problem can be corrected to run the chip properly?

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 in Real Steel (how to)

Firefox is temperamental. It almost never shuts down properly; and if you try to reopen it after closing it, you will most likely have to do a button-hold shutdown and boot. When you scroll in a webpage, the images will go crazy. Simply click on the refresh icon and the images will straighten out. M...
