Are you sure the same is applicable for MS Windows XP?
Yes, because the higher-level time functions call NtQuerySystemTime (https://msdn.microsoft.com/de-de/librar ... s.85).aspx) to retrieve the current system time.

That is quite unlikely, because Unix ACLs and Windows ACLs are as incompatible as Unix Access Rights and Windows Access Rights.
But you are free to implement some mapping code...

Re: Btrfs filesystem kernel driver for Windows

Have the developers ever thought of re-licensing or dual licensing as pure BSD? That would be really awesome. Please give us one good reason, other than being awesome, why we should do that! IMO, you only need a BSD-licensed ReactOS if you want to exploit the work of the contributors. If you do not...

Re: Eric's Reverted USETUP Changes

Hi! I am reading the forum and most of the MLs but I do not like to use IRC because it is distracting me too much. Very much like a flickering TV in the corner of your eye. Pi_User5 is right. The main reason why I reverted the commits is because I was angry. But later I realized that the concept beh...

Re: For most programmers, it is foolish currently develop in

Hi clark_hobby, I do not think the use of any programming language is foolish. The choice is either good or bad, depending on the project and on your skills. If you want to learn about how a CPU works, you can write a little program in assembly language, convert it into machine code and type the hex...

Re: Intel PRO/100 VE network adapter drivers loaded but disa

A large part of the network setup code is not implemented yet. Your network adapter driver might fail because at least one part of the installer code is missing. This part should scan the ndi\params subkeys in the registry and copy the default values into the drivers software key.

Exactly. We need a least usable DHCP and DNS server services and a usable RPC over TCP/IP transport to implement logon with a domain controller. It will take while until we are ready for this step.

Re: Version 0.4 and others ?'s

What I have read about the " Multiuser/Logon System ", is, that it is turned off by default in the trunk builds, but will be on in the releases. So you should have to create and use passwords in the up-coming 0.4 release. The "Multiuser/Logon System" is not turned off, the "AutoAdminLogon" is turne...

If you do not enter the administrator password during setup, you will always be logged-on automatically as administrator.

Re: You now need to log into Ros

Hi oldman, if you create a new user account and run regedit.exe, navigate to 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon' and change the value 'AutoAdminLogon' to 0 (Zero), winlogon will not try to log in the administrator automatically after the next reboot. Then you s...

Re: Are learning to rewrite usetup.exe and blue.sys

Then we could reduce the number of necessary reboots by this approach from two to one (and eventually zero). What makes you think you can reduce the number reboots? - The first boot (first stage (text-mode) setup) installs the basic OS components, in order to boot into gui-setup. - The second boot ...

Re: Are learning to rewrite usetup.exe and blue.sys

Hello binsys, please do not move the usetup code into setupdd.sys. I think Microsoft chose this approach because they just wanted to implement the setup application as quick as possible and ignored all the problems that are caused by this decision (keyboard layouts, chractersets, etc.).

Re: Help for using of Zw or NtquerySystemInformation

NtQuerySystemInformation.SystemHandleInformation is not fully implemented. If you have a look at ntoskrnl\ex\sysinfo.c, you will see that the current implementation only fills UniqueProcessId for each handle.

You are free to implement the missing parts.
