Re: Win16 quest support in ReactOS

How about?:

Can this be ported to ROS?

Re: Fix of the Week

Looking at the commit history, I noticed that quite a lot of work was associated with the implementation of new commands in the debugger: "!irpfind" and "!poolfind". These commits were made from January 1 to January 8 - it fits into the"week" period. Perhaps in the future this will give us more "Fix...

Re: Is ReactOS stable enough for everyday use yet ?

ReactOS is more of a research project than a replacement for Windows. The system has big problems with running on real hardware for most users. THIS ALPHA. If ReactOS was developed by a commercial company, no one would know about it, because the system is not ready. If you don't have programming kno...

Periodic testing of ReactOS on real hardware.

Hi there! When testing ReactOS in VBox, I recently encountered a virtual machine crash. This led me to think: how good is software virtualization today? Can the virtual machine be 100% trusted? Hence my question: Whether testing ReactOS on real oborudovanii and how often? I understand that debugging...

Re: Win16 quest support in ReactOS

In my opinion, it would be faster to implement a "wrapper" of win16 functions around win32 functions. This requires "library-stub", which could redirect a 16-bit calls in 32-bit. Thus, there will be some "analogue" NTVDM, but for applications win16.

Re: 16-bit Windows Program Support

What?! Wine can run 16-bit Windows programs? Why not just import that part of the WINE in ROS?!

Re: 16-bit Windows Program Support

For me the ability to run 16-bit applications is not so critical. I think in ROS someone has installed Win3.11 and it worked using our current NTVDM. If anyone needs Win16 apps, even install Win3.11 in ROS. But there is another problem, which is more important for ROS. Many of the old Win32 programs...

Re: GSOC USB test

The same problem as before. FDODeviceExtension->ActiveSrb != NULL. I have a RECYCLER folder on flash stick. When I use it, the system may start to lag. And can go into the debugger. See https://jira.reactos.org/browse/CORE-11367. If necessary, I can put a Debuglog with your build.

Re: EPIC WIN!

ReactOS as a game platform is one of the MAJOR potential uses for the o/s. Games could be the single biggest reason why ReactOS thrives, don't knock games! I am a serious computer user but I also paid approx. £100 for all the Total War series of games when they originally came out. These are not pa...

Nesticle (didn't name it) works. http://orig11.deviantart.net/21a5/f/2015/323/d/3/reactos_nesticle_by_mugenfighter-d9h7lew.png It would work before, but I couldn't get to find/load any roms. I don't see anything epic in the new old game! Game - entertainment. Has anyone tried to run Turpo Pascal or...

1) Insert the Flash memory (USB)
2) Choose a Virtual Box "Eject USB"

And enjoy the blue screen...
