  1. Virtual Machines (VMs)
    I work at a facility which had a computerized BAS (Building Automation System) installed in the mid-1990s. The controls have some serious issues, and they're talking well north of a hundred large to bring them up to date. I've worked on a similar system in the past with commissioning software...
  2. Windows XP
    To start off, I have been a Help Desk Professional for over 20 years and a software tester for 15 years after that. I know what I'm doing (for the most part) and usually can find the answer myself due to my extensive Google-Fu. That being said, I'm trying to repair a Windows XP (that was on a...
  3. Virtual Machines (VMs)
    I really wanna install a Windows 10 VM using QEMU with full GPU Passthrough so I can play games like Warzone, Apex Legends, Fortnite, etc. These don't have Anti-cheat support with linux using wine, so they won't run. Also, native Anti-cheat on linux (w/o wine) doesn't work either. Anyhow, I'd...

    Quick question; I've downloaded VirtualBox and I'm currently running Kali Linux on it. Also I have 20gb of ram on my laptop. Is it overkill (or it's ok) to provide 4gb of ram (or 5gb) to VirtualBox?

    Felix Rieseberg came out with a Windows 95 virtual machine/emulator. I am trying to load a Windows 95 program which will not run even in compatibility mode on Windows 10.

    I'm planning to upgrade (tho my E8400 has been a workhorse for many years!). I plan to move to a I5-9600, Gigabyte z390 AORUS, but I still have Win7 programs I need for work (VPN, term emulator, ect) that may not work with Vine. I know Win7 can't be installed as the OS on a gen9 I5, but has...

    I've been using the XP mode on Windows 7 for a few years now and all of a sudden the last few times it's prompting me for a password to log in. Also it had a error message saying integration features not working. And the time it takes to start the Virtual Machine is very very long. What to do...

  16. Hardware
    Windows does not recognize the ipod (I'm assuming this is due to the file system, but I am not certain). When I looked up the issue I found a solution that looked simple enough, by displaying hidden files, but in this case I don't think the PC is going to read anything. The only solution I could...
  17. Windows 10
    As I've understood it, ever since the release of Windows 7, there has been no way to support programs written to run in a DOS session from within Windows, even by using XP Mode or by running a Virtual Machine with Windows XP. Is this still true, or have there been any methods or products...
