Missing: an intelligent registry merge

To my feeling there is some half-working "update" scenario. Consider the scenario of installing reactos from CD onto a disk partition which has already a reactos installation on it. As far as i observed reactos installs it's files and leaves untouched everything else. The only condition is you do no...

Re: ReactOS 0.3.13...

Who the heck would be mourning uninstallable/unfunctional IE on Reactos? Of course IE would be funny, but as long as their are other browsers, fairly better than IE8, it is not really necessary. :D And i think FF4, once rolled out in it's final version, will be better than IE9. As for MSOffice, it's...

Re: Avira Meldet Virus / Mailware auf der React OS CD

Es ist nicht das erste Mal dass Avira bei Reactos Modulen Fehlalarme auslöst. Ich habe zunächst beim Selbst-Kompilieren mindestens ein Dutzend Ausnahmen definiert weil Avira vor allem die exe's mit Netzwerkfunktionalität bemängelte zum Beispiel "arp" oder "netstat" ... und die exe's nach dem Erstell...

USB keyboard or mouse

If you use an USB keyboard and/or mouse, and as long as Reactos does not yet support these devices, you should activate what is called the "legacy mode for keyboard / mouse / input devices" or similar in your BIOS. Then USB input devices should be no problem for reactos installation. With this featu...

Wider die Skeptiker: reactos wird 2014 Final 1.0 erreichen.

Im April 2014 endet der Support von WinXP. Allen pessimististischen Prognosen von Skeptikern zum Trotz behaupte ich bis zum Beweis des Gegenteils dass Anfang des Jahres 2014, also vor dem XP Supportende, eine zumindest als VM alltagstaugliche Reactosversion zur Verfügung steht, sei es eine Final 1.0...

Hint for virtualbox: guest configs "unknown OS" works best

Hi, i have installed the virtualbox alldone image of 0.3.12 and it works flawlessly (on a linux 32bit host). It also helped me to work around some problems i got systematically when trying to install 0.3.11, 0.4trunk and 0.3.12prereleasebranch, and the final release 0.3.12 versions: Starting with vi...

Re: Install Reactos without bootloader ?

Ability to install reactos on a partition, and to do that without breaking the grub bootloader, depends on what is your current partitioning scheme. You can post here the partitioning scheme of the first harddisk, by using the unix fdisk command below, it can only be executed as root: root@zuse3:~# ...

Reactos shell32.dll immune against LNK vulnerability?

Hi,

Is reactos shell32.dll immune against the severe LNK vulnerability which Microsoft patched last Monday for any windows version newer or equal XP SP3?

Or is reactos as well endangered?
