well, a custom linux os with gentoo compiled to sysvinit using clang, and port x32 for the entire os.
i tried the windows xp version, it seems to require a lot of other dlls which in turn require even more in order to get it to work

the settings tab actually kinda works, just not correctly, i have no idea how you would fix it.
Is there any way to make the Settings tab work as well? I really hate win10 moving everything to UWP...
Also, could desk.cpl from XP be made to work with the same steps? (Of course I'm not expecting XP themes to work.)
It's up to you, but I think a few over there would like that. :)
Thanks you! also, Welcome! i doubt you'll be back tho lol.

i wish i had more spare time to do weird stuff like that more often

winclassic looks to have some interesting stuff going on i might have to come over there soon lol.

i had that once, but the email server i had set up was very unreliable. im thinking of just having as one of the questions "go to [some other place on the website] scroll to the bottom of the page, copy and paste the random string of characters into the answer box." that would probably stop most of them
this is the discussion topic for

i'm not reposting all of it to here, that would be difficult, and i'm lazy.

Thank you Floyd for all you've done in regards to getting these old programs up and running on Windows 8+, they've been a great asset to us over at WinClassic. Mad props.

You should look into getting email verification, you'd see less spambots.

in the last three days a few thousand spam posts and nearly 200 spam accounts joined the forum. that is the most activity i've had on here since 2012. i ended up just restoring a backup of the database from july 2, as nothing had changed since then. now im actually going to have to fix the antispam system.

well, mostly anyway. the hard drive on the server died, fortunately i was able to back it up and no files have been lost. the whole site is running in vitrtualbox on my main desktop right now, so until i can get a new hard drive for the real server the website will only be online from about 9am till 11pm. maybe more but probably not, i dont like to leave my bedroom desktop running at night. im probably going to get a ssd now so the website will probably run better than before, but it will obviously be a while before i can get one in, i haven't even ordered one yet. pata ide hard drives of any kind are getting hard to find.
