Re: checking if features are implemented.

That is exactly the response I was expecting when I mentioned that it may sound premature. While it is true that ReactOS doesn't work well on real hardware yet it doesn't mean that we can't somehow luck out and find companies that are using compatible systems. Also there is the possibility of maybe ...

checking if features are implemented.

I know this may seem premature, but I was wondering if ReactOS has support yet for locking down application installs. Also does ReactOS support network installs such that it could be deployed to multiple computers at once? The first question is important as our system is still alpha. Basically if we...

Re: ReactOS Fundraising 2012

Since the discussion went in this direction I thought I would bring up this page http://www.reactos.org/wiki/CFI This is what happened when we started funding individual ideas. Main thing being that almost none where ever completely funded. Most you could never tell if they were completely funded as...

Re: Livecd 56875 dbg setup initialization failed

I think I am getting a similar situation on my PC using live cd revision 56967 release.ACHI vs IDE Native does not effect issue. it is an Acer AM3400-U2502 upgraded to 8gb of ram(maybe half of it actually detected during regular debug boot) and an extra dvd-rw drive. It also has a mushkin chrono del...

Re: Poll: Would you buy a printed/packaged Ros-cd in support

while(addressing first paragraph and not applying to the trial run scenario) { while it may only work on 25% of PCs with each new release comes the question "Does it do what I need it to yet? " or "does it work on mine now? ". If we didn't have people asking these questions we wouldn't have anywhere...

Re: Poll: Would you buy a printed/packaged Ros-cd in support

Just to be clear I never said anything about making CDs of ALL trunk releases, only those with user noticeable improvements that have been tested to make sure are indeed better than the previous release which aren't extremely common or if they are more common than I think the releases don't have to ...

Re: Poll: Would you buy a printed/packaged Ros-cd in support

Here is a thought if it doesn't further dilute the issue. Maybe call it "ReactOS Community Pre-Release Edition" or something similar.I would avoid using the ReactOS version numbers in the name as this could cause a lot of confusion. Leading to questions like "do you mean ReactOS 3.14 or Community Pr...

Re: How safe and small the ROS Distro can be?

Mostly only command line applications could still access it in that case(if path is hard coded definitely not unless some advanced redirection was used which would probably not be (easily)possible as a regular user). Windows programs could still do it but it is much much more rare for them to take t...

Re: How safe and small the ROS Distro can be?

I am in agreement with Haos on this. As a programmer I know that there are programs out there that would require being able to execute said applications. These programs would not know to look in another directory as by assuming the programs will only be run on windows the programers would feel confi...

Re: GDI Handles

There is a way built in to windows for this task as well. Open the task manager(ctrl+Shift+Esc) and go to View then Select Columns.. then make sure GDI Objects are checked then hit ok. With this the number of GDI handles being used by each application should be shown and you can see if you have a le...

Re: just new

So far I think classic view is the only view. For some of the others, I think the developers are planning to let the users take care of it once theme support is up to it. The non-classic desktops may end up only in distros while the core remains classic only. I am not an authority on any of this. ju...

Re: Dual Boot?

If it is possible it is a very recent thing. I did notice a commit a while ago that looked like it was saying that it made it possible to install on another partition than the first. If you try it, definitely use the latest trunk build and not the 3.11 release(which not not include the commit to whi...

Re: RosBE and MSBuild

I have managed to get ReactOS to load NOT build on Visual Studio Express C++ 2008 with minimal errors. To do this I had to write a utility to fix the solution file. You can find the utility in this thread if it hasn't been fixed in Rbuild yet http://www.reactos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=8150 . I...

Re: 0.3.11 Released

This project is very active. While the number of (major)releases may be few it is easy to see the activity in the trunk builds(non-release versions). A lot of stuff gets fixed between major releases(rather than frequent releases that fix only a few things per release). To see the most recent activit...
