Re: I need dwmapi.dll

I'll be fine with any version that works. Is it safe to install Microsoft service packs? Don't they willy-nilly replace lots of stuff? Which OS should we say we are, 32bit Vista or 32bit Win7? Are you sure a service pack would include dwmapi.dll? Actually, you reminded me. I have an old 386 PC with ...

I need dwmapi.dll

When I try to run one of my executables, it pops up a box saying I need dwmapi.dll. Is there any suggestion on where I can find a version of this file that would work?

Is Microsoft's acquisition of github a threat?

I see the ReactOS source code is hosted on github , as is the code for many, many open source projects. But ReactOS, more than perhaps any other project, could be a threat to Microsoft in the future. Right now it's still alpha software, so no one would try to use it as their work platform. But hopef...

Re: Installed ReactOS in KVM libvirt, solved hang

It turns out that the failure of the CD to boot is independent of the "--os-variant" switch. When I reinstalled, it failed to boot again. Then I realized it's just intermittent. It fails, so press ENTER. If it fails again, I press ENTER again until it boots. It seems to fail about twice per installa...

Installed ReactOS in KVM libvirt, solved hang

When I tried to install Reactos v0.4.10 BootCD as I had done previously in a KVM virtual machine using libvirt on Linux, it would hang. But I got it to work. Previously, I used the switch " --os-variant winxp " on the virt-install command line. But that hangs now. I tried winnt4.0 and winnt3.51 but ...

Re: Is there any SSH server?

Give it a while, they will all install eventually. ReactOS is in Alpha and not usable except for testing purposes. I'm quite impressed with the progress ReactOS has made even in it's alpha stage. When I tried it a few years ago it crashed easily and often but 0.4.3 hasn't crashed yet. I'm only play...

Is there any SSH server?

Has anyone found an SSH server that works on ReactOS? The Comparison of SSH servers Wikipedia page lists a bunch of potentials that I'm about to start searching through for a possible solution. But I'm just checking to see if someone has already been down this road. Cygwin would be the natural solut...

Re: Source code for importlibs?

You're asking why I don't want to build a unique version of gcc? What if every software project insisted on their own private build of gcc? That seems very undesirable to me. Of course, since this is an OS it might make sense to have a specific cross compiler for it. After all, gcc lists over 60 pla...

Re: Source code for importlibs?

I'm trying to see what's needed to build ReactOS without building a special set of per-project development tools.

Re: Source code for importlibs?

I found the source for libmingwex.a , which is the one that I was looking for. Here's what I did : export CVSROOT=:pserver:anoncvs@cygwin.com/cvs/src cvs login # enter password anoncvs mkdir cygwin && cd cygwin cvs checkout winsup/mingw/mingwex mkdir build && cd build MINGW=i686-pc-mingw32 ../src/wi...

A script-less basedir alias that works

The script basedir.sh in RosBE says: # An alias just to "cd $_ROSBE_ROSSOURCEDIR" won't work as bash only expands when executing the shell and then never again cd "$_ROSBE_ROSSOURCEDIR" But this works (double quotes required): alias basedir="cd \$_ROSBE_ROSSOURCEDIR" So the alias in RosBE-rc could b...

Source code for importlibs?

There's an importlibs directory in SVN that contains binary library files.

Where's the source code for these libraries?
