I tried what I told with the XP virtual machine sucessing on installing a game.

I installed Scribblenauts Unlimited.

As it is a game that requires VC++10, or better said, it was compiled with VC++10 without backward compatibility, it must be changed with fcwin.exe from KDW Wrapper and add kernel32.dll wrapper.

With just that, runs on Windows 2000. No steam or other magic required.

Reporting this just in case some of you might want to try it, this is, install games from a virtual machine. It's a weird scenario (because of the virtual machine) but it's the price of continue using Windows 2000 ;)

I tried to install Steam on Windows 2000 with extended kernel.

As I replied in the other topic, I'm not going to install the KernelEx.

Indeed, I prefer the virtual machine method. The system is kept cleaner. The Steam game installations tends to install all type of shit without letting you to choose, as, for example, DirectX.

Hi.

Yes.
It's just off topics :)


But I have a question.
Wrapper solution must set SafeDllSearchMode and it makes some security hole and
Security soft usually detects to virus false positive.

I think that wrapper solution can't keep system cleanly, so that I changed Extended kernel project.
(and I think it keeps Windows 2000 more compatibility than wrapper solution)
Please tell me why you think that wrapper keeps the system cleaner than extended kernel, as you may. :roll:

# of course I don't want you to use extended kernel, but to known the reason simply . :)

Thx

Read it again.

I didn't say the wrapper was cleaner but Steam in a virtual machine.

@BlackWingCat

Can you write a tutorial here on this board on how to install the extended Kernel? Informing about the requirements of Windows 2000 and supplying the download links to your project and all the most information needed to get it working? It follows the same library structure like the Wrapper but installed in system root, right? So in principle you have the Extended Kernel Kernel32.dll and the renamed System Kernel2k.dll in the system root directory.

If BlackwingCat haven't writen yet, now I write that I know:

You can install extended kernel as a windows update, WIN2000 SP4 and Internet Explorer 6 SP1 required.
