    WoW! I’ve never thought, someone’d even try. Well, when I use my emulator, I know what to check out.

    Btw: You should try adding a BugTracker and a compatibility DB.

    updates MS, SESP, NUSB, etc.
    Kernelex 4.5RC4

    working – Mozilla Firefox 3.5.13
    working – Mozilla Firefox 3.6.10 – except Java
    working – Adobe Flash for IE6
    working – Adobe Flash for FF 3.5.13 and 3.6.10
    working – Java 6 update 21 – for IE6 and FF 3.5.13

    For Java to work with FF 3.5.13,
    1) delete jre\bin\new_plugin directory
    2) disable_new_plugin in Java CPL panel

    It’s definately more stable. A few existing problems are still present:
    IE6+Flash player lockups
    Firefox graphics corruption
    no Java with 3.6.x

    Google Maps corrupts the forward, back, refresh stop, home buttons in Firefox. It also turns all my systray icons black. When it happens, all screen image redraws happen extremely slowly. If you open up IE6 and go to Google Maps after corrupting Firefox with Google Maps, then the FF buttons magically fix themselves, but only while IE6 is open. This affects other Kernelex 4.5 versions and Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x and 3.6.x versions. I do not use Revolutions Pack. Video driver is unofficial nVidia 82.69. GDI.exe is 4.10.2227. DIBENG.dll is 4.10.1998.

    Mozilla Firefox 4.0 Beta 6 starts but then switches to an unsupported video mode. This may be an extra mode or refresh rate in my registry.

    Software wishlist:

    Java support for FF 3.6.x series
    Adobe Acrobat Reader 9 series
    AVG Free
    Avast! Free
    Avira AntiVir Free

    Keep IE6 alive:


    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\5.0\User Agent]
    “Version”=”MSIE 8.0″
    “Platform”=”Windows NT 6.0″

    Thanks for doing what knuckle Head Microsoft refuse to do just so they could make more profit. I still use windows 98 more then I use my Vista System and thanks to you I was able to upgrade my browser to FF 3.6 and Opera 10.5. We need more a lot more like you. Keep up the Good Work!
