Re: Need help with control panel applet

The ppsp member of the PROPSHEETHEADER structure is an array of PROPSHEETPAGE structures, but you thread it like a single PROPSHEETPAGE structure, thus you overwrite the first page.

Re: Quicklaunch bar plans?

Yes, I know the old explorer had that feature and it would be nice if somewhere in the future ReactOS gets it again (although personally I don't care that much since I don't use virtual desktops that much). My point was that imho the discussion in the linked ticked doesn't say explicitly that the us...

Re: Support for older computers

Afaik ReactOS uses some of the atomic compare-and-exchange instructions, which (at least some of them) require a pentium class cpu.
Sorry, I am not 100% sure for that but I hope it helps.

Re: How to build Arwinss?

I have never build arwinss myself so I don't know exactly, but I guess you first have to put the arwinss folder into your trunk folder as you have mentioned. After that, you have to apply trunk.diff. You than can build it as usual, but you may have to define some variable first to say that it should...

Re: Quicklaunch bar plans?

If I understand correctly, the statement in the mentioned jira ticket is not to generally let the user install a third party tool, but just that it should not be hardcoded into explorer. This doesn't mean that
there is no chance that the system comes with support for virtual desktops.

Jira just messed up the formatting. Go to code.reactos.org to see how it is supposed to look.

Re: PCI driver, things over a bridge not seen

Under Windows XP, open the Device Manager and expand System Devices. For every listed device, show its properties dialog and determine if it is a PCI device or not. If it is a PCI device, see where it is located at. If it is located at PCI bus 0, Device 0, note its Function (There should at least on...

Re: Install ReactOS to Secondary Partition

Thats bad to hear that it does not boot. Unfortunately that is the only way I am aware of to boot a non-NT system from a Windows bootloader. Don't know if EasyBCD or some other third party program can do the job better. However, as Alahndro mentioned eralier, you may want to try to boot Vista from F...

@justincase Thanks for the Info, I didn't know about HDHacker before. I took a quick look at it and it should do the job just fine. @Alahndro Yes, loading Vista from FREELDR is simpler to setup. Because the initial poster was going on with the steps for FREELDR from vista bootmgr, I was just assumin...

Re: Install ReactOS to Secondary Partition

It holds the contents of the boot sector from your ReactOS partition. You need to dump it with a suitable utility to a file, for example with the Linux dd command.
It should not make a difference, if you don't have completed the second stage setup yet.
