installing programs that detect windows version number

Post by dark »

I've seen some programs in the wiki listed as reactos compatable but if you try to install them it will say you must have this version of windows at least. clamwin being the one I tried from the list, also tried windows media player 9 for 98SE, nt, me, they all seem to have something built into the install to stop them from starting installation if it's the wrong version of windows, how are you getting around this?

It would be an interesting if the user could change what operating system it was reporting as.

It should be into the emulation tab (although we don't emulate anything for now). But it can be ok to set for all programs a Microsoft SO or, set it to ReactOS.
