Re: Is arwinss actually in the truck builds now?

My experiences are: A fresh install (formatted drive) will produce the same results as in Pesho's first post. Upgrading to an already install version is the same as in Sun's virtual machine.

Is arwinss actually in the truck builds now?

Is arwinss actually in the truck builds now?
Because I downloaded rev 45183 yesterday and I do not see any difference from a revision from last week.
I am looking forward to testing some apps in a build with arwinss in.

The way to test for a working php is to have a php file at C:\www called test.php containing <?php phpinfo; ?> then open a command window and navigated to the folder containing php.exe, then type: ph...

Teclogica http server can freeze the desktop (Ros-0.3.11)

I ran Teclogica http server yesterday, faultless, but today I have found that if you change any of the server settings other than just after install (before the server runs), it locks the programme up and all of the desktop, with the exception of the mouse pointer. ctl/alt/del opens Ros security win...

ReactOS-0.3.11 load problem

I have, at the second install (the first install ends up with a black screen) managed to run Ros and install some programmes, but when one programme installation went wrong, I rebooted, but it failed. So I re-installed Ros, now it boots up to a blue screen with the mouse pointer and goes no further....
