Re: Programs that heavily rely on NT 6.x APIs list

"System requirements: Windows Vista or newer." There are some Windows Vista + programs that are runnable in ReactOS. The point is what applications require a true NT 6.x kernel (even using compatibility shim, NT 5.2 kernel cannot help to run these apps). With software specifically leaving NT5 behin...

Re: Bootloader and multi-boot question

We needs tests... It is assumed that ReactOS can recognize and be booted using Windows XP bootloader, Windows Vista,7,8,10 bootloaders seems not to be recognizable by FreeLoader... A test: What about booting ROS using DOS, FreeDOS and Windows 9x bootloaders? Can ROS recognize Windows 9x bootloaders ...

What happened when you tried it, Quim?
I didn´t use it yet.
It requires a linux environment (real GNU/Linux installation or Windows 10 WSL)....
Anyone that tried install it under Windows 10 WSL?

penguintrace as an useful tool for development

Here´s a tool (for whom that can install it). https://penguintrace.org/intro/ penguinTrace allows you to see how software gets run at a hardware level, showing how the source code maps to assembly and allowing stepping through the program. Maybe it could be used for debugging for small code... :?: h...

Re: Windows Linux includes full Linux OS w/ext4 file system

Two operating systems running under a common hypervisor. Linux and ReactOS. A hypervisor could help manage newer hardware and set up an environment for ReactOS. If Microsoft publicly releases it's WSL 2 Linux as open source, ReactOS can use the same Linux as Windows but not require a license. Targe...

Sounds like the ticket with the most votes on jira: https://jira.reactos.org/browse/CORE-6699
So the answer to @dizt3mp3r question is no. Is not implemented yet. :cry:

Re: just installed ReactOS on a VM and was greeted with this error

IMO, in the 21st century there is no excuse for writing poor bug reports whether the report is formal (e.g., a JIRA report) or informal (e.g., a post in the ReactOS Support forum). Bug reporting advice from around the Internet: How to Report Bugs Effectively by Simon Tatham This is the Internet's g...

Re: ReactOS recovers from a low memory situation...

Just a thought. Here's hoping that ReactOS recovers more gracefully from low or out of memory conditions than Windcows in general. I was just running Yahoo widgets and an associated editor, the VB6 IDE, thunderbird, palemoon and firefox as well as all the usual background utilities on Win7 in 4gb R...

Re: General Feedback on ReactOS / Testing Results

Hello, I am an experienced software developer (over 10 years of C/C++) and I have been watching ReactOS for quite some time. It is an impressive achievement - and given the general distaste I have seen for Windows 10 I feel it is due for some more developers. Kudos to the team for this project. Rea...

Re: Last LibreOffice portable for Windows XP

for old systems like XP/Vista which LibreOffice no longer support. That is ideal for ROS until NT 6.x APIs will be enough to run LibreOffice 6.x or even the last version.... Which APIs and more things still need LibreOffice 6.2.2 in order to be usable? Could be possible to run it in an NT 5.2 envir...
