This page contains a list of APIs, COM interfaces, drivers, application, extensions or other functionality that Windows has but ReactOS does not. There are other similar pages in this wiki that might help, e.g. Version Status and Roadmap. This page is intended as a list of general tasks that need to be done in ReactOS. If a certain component already exists, consider filing a bug report.

Statuses: planned, implementation started, implementation finished.

  • Automatic Updates
  • Search
  • User Login
  • WMI [1]

  • NTFS
  • WOWEXEC to run older Windows applications, based on 16 bit code. (A partial implementation of NTVDM exists. Aside: There are no "free" compilers for 16bit Windows NE style code as of 2018).

Win32 features

  • Dr. Watson [i]

Introduced in Windows 98

  • System File Checker [13] (nice, but not absolutely needed)

Introduced in Windows ME

Introduced in Windows 2000

Introduced in Windows XP

  • Image Mastering API (needed for many cd writing applications)
  • Window ghosting(A window manager feature that lets the user minimize, move, or close the main window of an application that is not responding) – see CORE-11944
