Microsoft Windows XP is the sixth release of the NT series of operating systems, and was the first to be marketed in a variety of editions: XP Home and XP Professional, designed for business and power users. The advanced features in XP Professional are generally disabled in Home Edition, but are there and can be activated. There were two 64-bit editions, an embedded edition and a tablet edition.

The scenario:

1.      We have a Windows XP computer which runs an offline PDF to Print comparison.  
2.      As it is XP we have taken it off our network for security reasons
3.      The XP computer is attached to an A1 scanner which scans a printed leaflet
4.      The software then compares the printed scan against the original PDF used to generate the print plates
5.      For reprints this is OK as a copy of the original PDF already exists on the XP computer
6.      For new prints the user needs to go to another computer which is on WorkGroup, browse for the file, copy the original PDF to a USB, copy from the USB to the Windows XP computer, then run comparison

It is step 6 which I am trying to improve.  Can I directly connect the XP computer to the networked computer using some sort of software that isolates but still allows a folder to be browsed and a file copied.  I hope I have made this clear

Hello Experts -

I have found that if I don't Disable Scripting (in Internet Options), that displaying web content in Internet Explorer is extremely slow - making many sites almost unusable.

Generally speaking, they freeze up or the scroll bars get stuck. I often get messages that say "web site is not responding" and iExplorer will then display a "recover webpage" button. The latter just reloads the same page to drag the experience anew.

But there are a few sites that are exceptions, if I idisable scripting as the default behavior via the setting in Internet Options. These sites are worthless without scripting.

So, is there a way I can get iExplorer turned to allow scripting for a few pre-defined sites - leaving scripting disable for all the rest.

Thanks.

Gordon

I have an old simulation program that I want to play with and it will only run on Windows XP. So, I want to use my old COMPAQ Presario CQ60 laptop for only this purpose. I have wiped the HDD, initialized and formatted it in preparation. When I try to install XP I get the Blue Screen error that is attached. I read somewhere that XP will not install on SATA that I need to change settings to IDE. I have never heard of that and I cannot find any IDE settings in the BIOS. Please advise.

Thank you!

Robert

I am trying to install Windows XP Pro SP2 in Windows 10 Pro with the Oracle Virtual Box. The computer is laptop HP Spectre 360 with an SSD. The Virtual Box itself has been installed smoothly, as well as the Guest Additions. RAM of 4096  M and a VirtualBox Disk Image type Hard Disk (15 G, dynamic) was selected. However, when I start installation of the Win XP from an external CD drive on a USB, some time down the road, I get an error message "Cannot format the partition".

Any suggestions?

Hi
I have a PC running Win XP x64 SP2 with Windows Media Player 11. I need to record the screen (no audio) and playback on the same PC. I'm using FFmpeg and have grabbed a command off google to get me started and tweaked it to get it to use the Windows Media Video codec

ffmpeg -y -rtbufsize 100M -f gdigrab -framerate 30 -probesize 10M -draw_mouse 1 -i desktop -c:v wmv2 -r 30 -preset ultrafast -tune zerolatency -crf 25 -pix_fmt yuv420p "video output.wmv"

Using pretty much the same command except swapping the codec (-c:v libx264) and filetype to ("video output.mp4") results in nice clear video. When I use the initial example, it works but is not very clear and pretty pixelated.

Unfortunately I can't install codecs and better media plays on the PC so I'm trying to work with Windows Media Player.

Does anyone have any idea how I can get better quality video which will play in Windows Media Player 11?

Thanks

My backup files are corrupted. So was looking for a recovery tool. But the issue is there are so many tools to choose from.
Do anyone of you have any idea regarding any good recovery solution. I even tried to search manual procedures but it was of no use.
So kindly suggest me any manual process, if you know any (as i don't like to pay for a recovery solution)
If not, then suggest me any good recovery tool to repair and recover my BKF files.

I have even searched the web and found following tools which would help in recovery of data from the corrupt bkf files.  Kindly review these tool. Looking for a user review

1 . Aryson bkf repair tool  (http://www.arysontechnologies.com/bkf-recovery.html)
2. Backup Recovery Tools (http://www.msbkffilerecovery.com/bkf-recovery.html)

Thanks in advance

I have a client that is running Windows 7 Pro 64bit and XP Mode for an old application they still use. The virtual machine no longer works. It won't boot and I get an error that the SYSTEM32\CONFIG file is corrupted. I want to fix it by booting off an XP Pro ISO as the CD drive but it won't boot off the drive. In order to boot off the drive, I have to use integration features but integration features show as "not available" in the Virtual-PC Manager so I cannot enable them.

Any ideas on how to get around this?

Believe this is a long shot but doesn't hurt to ask, is there a way to activate WINXP? I called the MS number and the automated line said the product was not valid. I know the product is valid I expect this is because it's no longer supported.

Have an old app that only runs on WINXP.

Thank you

I know that XP is obsolete. But I need it to run for my old app. Anyway,  I just reinstalled Win XP on my T61 Thinkpad and when I move my browser around, it is moving very slowly. I have my music on and then I move the browser around, the music stops playing.

Appreciate any thoughts.

Have a client who is still using Windows XP on four Workstations.

Last week all four lost their ability to use a third party Office 365 Sharepoint addon called Zee Drive.  (Product maps a drive letter to Sharepoint Site).

Zee Drive appears to load normally and does map the drive letter, but XP complains that there's no data and the drive needs to be formatted.  

I also noticed that IE8 now is unable to load the Office 365 Web Portal:

https://login.microsoftonline.com

Comes back with a Page Cannot be Displayed error.  Page can be loaded in either Chrome or Firefox.

Did something change in the last week with Office 365 and their support for the unsupported Windows XP OS?

Thanks,

Nathan

I am using fireFox web browser version 51.0.1 (32 bit) on a windows Xp machine.
I wish to configure fireFox in an equivalent way to that in internet explorer as shown below:

In IE--> Tools --> Internet Options --> 'Advanced' TAB :
Uncheck: Use SSL 2.0 / Use SSL 3.0
Check: Use TLS 1.0 / Use TLS 1.1 / Use TLS 1.2 Using IE 9.

Can this be done and if so where do I find these settings in Firefox please ?
I don't have internet explorer on the machine and don't particularly want to install it.

I have an OU with one shared user account and 80 machines in a 'Computer' folder under that.  These are shared machines so they have a generic domain user account and are very locked down since they have random users.  Right now they are still running XP and I need to update to Windows 7 or 10.  The network has Server 2012 R2.

1. Is 7 or 10 better/easier as far as group policy goes?  I only need to be able to launch a few programs from the desktop and start menu and allow browsing to a limited number of websites.

2. I would like to continue to use the one shared domain account that is under the main OU.  If so, is the best way to create a new folder under the main OU called Win7Computers and create a new policy there?  Modify the existing policy to work with both XP and a new OS, or another way?

Eventually XP will be gone, but I need a transition period.   Right now if you log a Win 7 machine on under the existing policy, it seems to apply some restrictions but not others.  Desktop redirection and browser rules do not work.

I'm trying to create a backup of my windows xp embedded drive by cloning it to another flash drive. The working drive is a 1gb Transcend CompactFlash drive and the cloned drive is a 2gb Adata CompactFlash drive. I used partitionguru to clone the drive over from the Transcend drive to the Adata drive. When trying to boot it shows "Verifying DMI Pool data" and then shows a Disk read error. I tried to rewrite the MBR but it didn't work.

We're about to embark on a project to upgrade our IT services.  For a variety of reasons we are still clinging on to Windows XP.  The first thing we are doing is migrating to Office 365, including hosted email from Microsoft as part of O365.

Since we are on XP we can only run Office 2007, which can connect to O365.  We have several people already using XP, Outlook 2007 & O365.  However as we roll out we have hit a problem in that some of the PCs just will not connect to Office 365 Exchange server.

During setup of their Outlook profile on the PC it asks for the username (email address) and password, but never validates this.  Clicking ok just keeps asking for the same login information.

The PC is fully patched in XP SP3 and Office 2007 (SP3).  It seems to have to be something to do with the PC.  If I login to the PC using another user (who can connect to O365 on a different PC) it does not work.  

I've searched the internet and tried lots of options -- most of which are for Windows 7  onwards, but we've tried them anyway.  We've also deleted the users Outlook profile on the PC, and their full windows profile but with no luck. We've uninstalled Offfice 2007 and reinstalled too.

Any other suggestions on what can be checked on the PC.

Many thanks
