    Hiya Ramsey,

    Just too inform & let you know when you visit Basilisk Browser's offical website (https://www.basilisk-browser.org/requirements.shtml) - take a look at the requirements page and apprently the "browser" says this:

    "Basilisk system requirements
    Basilisk is a modern, full-featured web browser and as such requires a reasonably modern system to properly run.

    Windows requirements
    Windows 7 or later. Windows XP or Windows Vista are not supported.
    A modern processor (must have SSE2 support as the absolute minimum).
    1GB of RAM (2GB or more recommended for heavy use).
    Dedicated GPU strongly recommended.

    Kind regards,

    • This commment is unpublished.
      Ramsey · 10 months ago
      No because this can cause some problems on different commuter hardware. But you can install the USB 3.0 driver by yourself and see if it works on your computer. For January/February 2020 i plan to release some add-ons so people can easily integrate this things by themselves and see what works on their computer.

        I am happy with my XP version which I have kept updated by POS and other programmes . Can I extract the browser from your WinXP-IE (downloaded) without installing or is it possible for you to post it on 1337 for me?
        • This commment is unpublished.
          Katie Boundary · 10 months ago
          The correct answer is Mypal, a fork of Pale Moon, because it works with the Cookie Masters addon. Basilisk is some unstable perpetual-beta crap and the Cookie Monster addon, which Cookie Masters was forked from, is no longer maintained.

    It's nice to see that you're still keeping this updated even after you said the June release would be the last. Did you ever fix the bug with certain keyboard keys not working correctly?
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Ramsey · 10 months ago
      I never read about such a bug before.
      And all my Keyboard keys are also working on Windows XP. Are you sure you did set the correct Keyboard language?
      • This commment is unpublished.
        Katie Boundary · 10 months ago
        US English? Yes. As an experiment, go into an XP Integral Edition machine (real or virtual, doesn't matter), open up notepad, and press the apostrophe (') key. Chances are, nothing will happen. If you press it again, both the first and second apostrophes will magically appear. This isn't a notepad bug; you'll see the same behavior when you try to rename files and folders. Windows is receiving the keystrokes correctly; it's just not reacting to them correctly.
        • This commment is unpublished.
          Ramsey · 10 months ago
          I tested it and everything works fine.
          If you have a QWERTY Keyboard with an Euro symbol on the top left that means you have a "United States (International)" Keyboard and then you have to press the key (") or (") + Space or any other Key to trigger the (") or ("). If you set you Keyboard to "English (United States)" then it will work like you are use to it, but you will loss some functionality on a QWERTY International Keyboard.
          • This commment is unpublished.
            Katie Boundary · 10 months ago
            My keyboards are all 100% US English and do not have any Euro symbols. There is nothing international about them.
            • This commment is unpublished.
              Ramsey · 10 months ago
              The behavior of you Keyboard is like the "United States (International)" layout. Try to delete the "United States (International) layout, so that you only have the "English (United States)" layout shown in your Taskbar.
              • This commment is unpublished.
                Katie Boundary · 10 months ago
                Delete it how? Keyboard layouts don't show up in the taskbar.
                Okay I found something. At the "Regional and Language Options" screen during the second-to-last phase of setup, if I click on the "Languages" tab, then on the "Details" button, it has the "default language" listed as "English (United States) - United States-International", despite everything being set to US English in two other, much more highly visible places. It can be switched to strictly US English.
                Yep, THAT fixed the problem. So, thanks for pointing me in the right direction, even if your exact answer was wrong

      Pensioner · 10 months ago
      There may be something in this(Katie's) statement. Usually going through the install towards the end it is offering the user the option to install geographic keyboard and time zone etc, but in the last version prior to this(Aug) I never saw that option and for me some drivers were missing like audio and PC bus. I reverted back to May edition of Integral. Hopefully this version works out for me. Thanks Ramsey.

    I really like Win10's Calculator & Graph Bar when copying/moving files. Is there an alternative for WinXP that has ALL those features?
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Zedd · 10 months ago
      It's not quite as fancy, but my goto for WinXP is Teracopy. It's much faster than the built in file transfer utility and supports modern features like pausing, resuming incomplete transfers, hash checking, shutting down the PC once done, etc.
      • This commment is unpublished.
        Zedd · 10 months ago
        Sorry, a clarification:
        *Teracopy isn't as fancy in terms of graphs - Teracopy uses a traditional progress bar, but accurately reports time left (unlike XP's built in tool).

        To Ramsey,

        Thank you very much for your kind notification. I don't want to sound like the 'teacher's pet', but it is very sad to see that some people are so impatient. I myself have been quite content with the June 2019 update for several months (I tried the August 2019 one and quickly reverted as I also had problems with the Realtek 2.74 audio drivers). I'm definitely excited to try the November update, and don't expect any sound issues (though if there should still be any I will gladly go back to the June update and wait for the next release after that).

        As most of the software I use on a daily basis will even work with 95/NT 4.0 (with a few exceptions, such as the New Moon 28 browser--sadly, the newest browsers 95/NT 4.0 can run are now starting to run into a lot of problems with modern sites) I'm feeling quite comfortable still using XP, and have no plans on upgrading anytime soon. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all of your years of hard work in maintaining this project. It is easy for folks to forget that you are only human and have priorities in your life that supersede this in importance. For me, anything post-June 2019 is a bonus. A lot of people should count themselves lucky that you didn't call it quits a long time ago. You had virtually every reason to, but in your selfless generosity you are still here for us.

        God bless you, my friend, and please don't work TOO hard. It is always worth the wait! You are truly appreciated for your efforts, and we've got your back when you need it!

        -Cameron M.

          Doesn't sound like teacher's pet to me.

          Anyway, are you using specifically Win95? That is too old, ain't it? Why not upgrade to Windows Millennium Edition which is the latest of the Win9x architecture. For the WinNT architecture, just stick to WinXP if you still use it on a weaker system.

          As for the browser, just use Ramsey's Basilisk browser that came with WinXP. It still works with most modern website. or other alternatives could be Vivaldi or Brave which still has some support for older OS.
          • This commment is unpublished.
            cmccaff1 · 10 months ago
            Actually, I would still be using Windows 95 if it were not for the many problems 95-compatible browsers now have with the modern web. There are certain sites I enjoy using on a daily basis which do not work properly in Opera 10.63 (or a 10.70 build) or Retrozilla--if they did I would still be on some flavor of 9x (or NT 4.0 as it is far more stable and has better browser support; unfortunately, the best browsers NT4.0 can run are also very insufficient now for today's web).

            What I meant is that I still use VERSIONS of programs that will run on Windows 95/NT 4.0 (examples: WinRAR 3.51, Winamp 2.79, VLC 0.8.5, CCleaner 1.41, etc.). What they may lack in bells/whistles they compensate for in speed and reliability. I use New Moon 28 as it restores the pre-Australis interface and allows you to use classic themes that newer FF versions or forks can't run (while being equal to Basilisk in support for modern web standards). I have tried different Chromium-based browsers, and just prefer how Gecko/Goanna ones render pages. They also tend to run better on older hardware, which is a big plus for me.

            One day if XP can no longer handle the demands of today's Internet, then I will probably go up to (most likely) Windows 7 or (maybe) 10. For now, it still does everything I need it to do and then some! XP supports tons of old/new software/hardware out of the gate, and is very easy to set up without having to tweak a whole bunch of settings (which I've always had to do in older and newer versions of Windows).

              You should try ReactOS which is like a fork of Win9x. It uses WinAPI so it's not a unix/linux distro or that sort of crap. The last time I used it (which was nearly a decade ag , had a cross-feel between Win98/ME & WinXP. It has good performance, above average hardware support. Don't take my word for it as it is now, though. I'm sure a lot has changed since then. It might even still be in Alpha state of dev as it was then. Try reading it up on Wikipedia & ask around the ReactOS forums for any "sticks & stones that may break your bones" if you're interested.

              If you're gonna surrender to post-Vista OS, might as well go the whole mile & take Win10. There is only a year left in Win7 shelf-life support & I'm sure the difference is not that drastic between Win7 & Win10. I don't remember much as I only had 2 months of experience with Win7 that came with this laptop before I changed it to ReactOS then back to WinXP.

              I guess browsing is becoming a pain on Pre-Vista OS. Cuz even if the browser is the latest & still supported, websites has already been using web protocol & security ciphers that are non-existent in WinXP & before it. Can you try if using VPN can "route" this issue? I can't do it myself as I have yet to prepare for my WinXP OS installation, so I'm using Win10 right now.

                I appreciate the suggestions! ReactOS is definitely an option, and I've been looking into it for some time now. It all comes down to stability; if ReactOS gets to a point where it is roughly as stable if not more so than XP, then I'll definitely go to that OS in the future if XP 'bites the dust' as far as usability on the modern Internet.

                So far so good for XP as far as browsing goes...there are many different browsers for XP with lots of different quirks, but New Moon 28 still does EVERYTHING I need it to do. Windows 7 would be a better alternative to 10 for me, as it is closer in feel and spirit to what I'm used to with XP and supports all the same browsers you can run on 10 (I have yet to see a browser that only supports 10, and even if there is one I'm sure with hex editing it can be made to run on 7 to . Vista is about on par with XP as far as browser compatibility; essentially Vista is XP with more bells/whistles while removing lots of support for legacy software/hardware (not good at all).

                I can definitely try a VPN in the future, but I haven't needed one for my personal use. For me, New Moon 28 has all the protocols built in that you need for Internet browsing. Not a single site has thrown up a TLS/SSL error to date.

        Thanks bro.
        You are really great.
        I always update all my PC whenever new version came.
        And you are the one that keeps Win-XP alive.
        Great respect and honour for your effort.

      Obviously you have learning difficulties. Learn some manners. Patience is a virtue.

          That's called lack of patience and manners. You nor anybody should request a rush release. One user @Rei already pointed out to you in your previous post why that is.

            Bro no fight
            I always wait for the next release because my Lab PC's and i only use Win XP since 2012 when Win XP Black Edition was released every month.
            I love the admin effort to keep the Win XP alive. I am always waiting for the new release. I am much excited for the next release.
            Again i say no fight, no abuse.
            Peace for All.
            Be brothers
            Respect all

              Relax... I don't think anyone meant any fight, bro. Everyone is always waiting for new release, so be patient. Besides, you could always just use the August update. I'm sure this November update is minimal at best. With the exception of the USB 3.0 driver addition, which I'm waiting for, all other is just software update which you could just update individually.

    Is there a way to get sandboxie working on this? Looks like an update released after 30 October 2017 that patched the kernel probably broke it.

      Windows XP is supported up to Sandboxie version 5.22. Any beta/stable versions after Sandboxie 5.22 will not work on XP.

        I'm using version 5.22. When running anything sandboxed an error occurs complaining that it can't find the user profile directory. That error has occurred in the past when windows updated the kernel. It would be fixed with the next version of sandboxie. Because version 5.22 was released on 30 October 2017 I'm guessing there is some update released after that date that modified the kernel and is included with this iso thus breaking sandboxie. I'm kinda guessing at all this. All I know is that on a fresh install of this iso sandboxie 5.22 is inop.

          You should post this in the Sandboxie forum so it can be fixed for the last Windows XP Kernel updates. KB4463103 (October 9, 2018) + KB4486463 (February 12, 2019):

            XP is unsupported now unfortunately. They have dropped the licensing and are supposed to be converting it to an open source project. They even refuse to do something as simple as re-release 5.22 with the licensing component removed. Whenever its open source someone will probably make another XP version.

    username and password for w64 after installation please?

      Ramsey · 10 months ago
      There is no username or password set. Make sure you formatted your hard disk drive before re-installing.

        impi was correct about it asking for user & pw regardless if formatted. There was a symbol in the user name that appeared which obviously i removed then i used scorp as name then signed in however it failed as i hadn't set a name etc. Came here & by that time the screen had reset & Admin appeared in the user name, so hit enter & desktop appeared. I guess there's a code issue there or something. There's another issue & far more serious . If you have this installed what's the top line say in your hosts file say. I need to run this in a vm to confirm it

          I never had sure a problem. I don't even know how i could replicate it.
          And in the hosts file is only " localhost", and everything else is commented out with '#'.

            It's fine in a vm & works as you'd expect. I'm re-installing it on the spare pc as it appears there may have been an issue with a connected usb drive or the slave. The reason i mentioned hosts file is that it had a line at the top that shouldn't be there & is a redirect using chupra thingy.However i recognized it from a few years ago & is caused by a virus/malware that comes from usb drives. So it appears one of my dam drives has an infection lol. It may explain the login issue or not. If the xp works on the pc as it does on the vm then i'm real happy with it. If your the one that made the iso then well done, maybe i should learn to code too hahha. While i've got you here maybe take a look at adding powertoy tweakui, & xdntweaker (the latter works on win 7 as well & does a bit more than tweakui) in future versions
