    • This commment is unpublished.
      Ramsey · 10 days ago
      You will have almost no comparability problems if you switch to Windows 10 instead of Windows XP.

        so basicly no chance to instal a new clean win xp on newer systems like win7? i mean if i would boot from a usb or cd it would work, wouldnt it? well i thought you put something into the integral editions files to patch win7 or something to be able to instal from the setup.

            thats what i want... i need to downgrade to win xp from win 7. old laptop n stuff, u understand? i searched for the integral edition on purpose.

              If that's the case. Then before you switch to Windows XP make sure that there are also Windows XP drivers available for you computer. And also check if the programs you are using are still Windows XP compatible.

                the win xp setup doesnt let me install xp. i started the setup from the exe directly and it told me that a newer version (win 7) is already instaled. so back to my first question. what do i have to do to actually install win xp via setup. booting from cd or usb os not possible right now. is there any patch to emulate an older os. i thought u put some patches for the setup into the integral editions files? you may still dont understand my question/problem here.

                  Watch some YouTube videos on how to install a Windows XP from a Hard Disk Driver.
                  But don't forget to first BACKUP you personal files to a separate Storage Device before you reinstalling.

    is it possible to install this on a GPT partition ? i am using Samsung 970 EVO. and during installation it wont let me proceed because i already have windows 10 installed on it in GPT format.

    if so, how ? do i need to create a Hybrid partition or is that a bad idea ? since i do not have other drives around to use

      infuscomus · 12 days ago
      sorry, GPT booting isn't supported by XP.

      You'll need a separate drive formatted in MBR not GPT to boot XP.

        It is possible to boot XP 64 on a GPT partition

        how come it isn't possible to patch the 32 bit version to do the same ? with all the source codes leaks around the internet
        • This commment is unpublished.
          infuscomus · 12 days ago
          XP 64 is build from the server 2003 codebase.

          Also, if I'm not mistaken only x64 Itanium-based systems supported boot from GPT for server 2003, I don't think amd64 builds supported it.

    Why was Movie Maker removed? It's an iconic piece of Windows XP built-in software that can still be useful. I recall 720p templates being available, and also there is a mention of extra stuff from the Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 version of Movie Maker not present in the regular version.
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Ramsey · 14 days ago
      There are other programs for Windows XP that are a lot better than Movie Maker. And Movie Maker doesn't support any modern video format.
      And I'm sure you will not use Windows XP to do video editing.
      • This commment is unpublished.
        MrMateczko · 12 days ago
        Couldn't you add ACM/VFW codecs so modern video formats work with Movie Maker?
        I know it isn't a serious tool, I know there are better alternatives (maybe suggest them in the recommended apps readme?) but XP just seems empty without it.
        • This commment is unpublished.
          Ramsey · 11 days ago
          I tried it and you can import other video/audio files when you rename the file extension to .mpeg/.mp3 this will work most of the time.
          But the problem is that Movie Maker doesn't like the LAV Filters and crashes.
          It works with the ffdshow Filters with or without the VFW Codec. Sadly you can't say to Movie Maker to use ffdshow Filters instead of the LAV Filters.

          You can also download the Movie Maker v2.0.3312.0 installer from here.

            Could it be related to these movie maker errors mentioned above?
            https://codecguide.com/faq_miscellaneous.htm
            Apparently there's no problems with the Windows LIve Essentials version of Movie Maker but apparently it's not available for XP (even from WLE2009 which overall supports XP)

              Ramsey · 11 days ago
              The best way for him to edit videos on Windows XP is to use "Adobe Premiere Pro CS4" and "Adobe After Effects CS4".
              To include the ffdshow Filters only to be able to use the Windows Movie Maker would be a little bit useless i think.

                Thanks for the feedback. It seems that including it might be too much of a hassle, which is understandable. Guess I'll have to add it myself

    The included Xp codec pack v1.1 is it the same as/or modded version of the last Xp codec pack 2.7.4 which contains the same components? Thanks.
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Ramsey · 15 days ago
      The "X Codec Pack" is a different one than the "XP Codec Pack".
      I had to do this "XP Codec Pack" myself, because there was no Codec Pack for WinXP that included all the Up-to-Date components.
      • This commment is unpublished.
        IntMD · 15 days ago
        Talking about newer components, the latest K-Lite codec pack for XP includes a newer (i think the nightly version) version of MPC-HC. (the one in the XP Codec Pack is dated July, which I think it's the official release, while the K-Lite one is dated August).
        Also, if you are keen on, you could also include the Codec Tweak Tool in your codec pack (the one bundled in the latest K-Lite pack for XP is 6.3.2, but the last version of it that officially supports XP is 6.3.9: http://web.archive.org/web/20190516011733/https://www.codecguide.com/download_other.htm
        6.4.0 released May 20 2019 doesn't officially support XP, and i'm pretty sure it doesn't at all)
        When it comes to MPC-BE, while the latest version is 1.4.6, there's an unofficial backport of 1.4.7 (https://yadi.sk/d/Dp0nionU3NcVdN). The MPCVideoDec.ax filter which is also included in standalone filters pack can be useful to add, as it's the latest DXVA1 video decoder working with XP.
        • This commment is unpublished.
          Ramsey · 15 days ago
          1. I think the MPC-HC from K-Lite is some kind of modified version. Because it has no Digital Signature and the .exe file is 3MB smaller. And i also couldn't find any newer nightly version that would run on Windows XP.

          2. The Codec Tweak Tool is not really needed. Everything is already in the "XP Codec Pack" Start menu.

          3. MPC-BE 1.4.7 Vs. MPC-HC 1.7.13.32. The question is now which one has the more Up-to-Date code in it.
          • This commment is unpublished.
            IntMD · 14 days ago
            1. Probably the guys over K-Lite built it from the repo, I doubt it's really modified for malicious or unneeded intents, so I guess it doesn't hurt using this version.
            2. Maybe, but considering how light it is, I doubt it would make a difference for size, and it might be useful for enabling/disabling specific filters or codecs, like for ex. disabling LAV Video filter and enabling the MPCVideoDec.ax one for DXVA1-accelerated decoding. That and the fixes section might be useful for detecting and removing broken/invalid codecs.

            Of course, it's your choice as it's your codec pack. BTW, the LAV filters included are these XP-compatible ones compiled from 3dyd's repo?

              Yes the included LAV Filter is the backported XP LAV Filter, which should work with DXVA2 on Windows XP, if I'm not wrong.
              Also the "MPCVideoDec.ax" is not being installed whit K-Lite on my VirtualBox.

                Yeah, that MPCVideoDec.ax filter isn't included in K-Lite, iirc it's what MPC-HC used by default before they moved to LAV Filters (back in 2013, i think?). Kinda nice to see MPC-BE still bundling it, or at least the versions that support XP.
                Also, consider using VMware or at least VBox versions before 6.1, as for ex. the "Direct3D" acceleration support (which is basically modified WineD3D, but that's not the point) has been axed from XP's guest additions and can't make it to work even with older guest additions, due to the VboxOGL ICD being removed from NT 5.x clients.

                  I also noticed that the K-Lite MPC-HC has different internal filter entries.
                  And if I'm not wrong then the MPC-BE has all the filter files build into the MPC-BE.exe file?

                    Either that or included in the program folder. Although there's an archive of standalone filters in that yandex disk cloud i linked you, if that's the case.

                      The "MPCVideoDec.ax" filter isn't working with the K-Lite MPC-HC version, but it works with the original MPC-HC version.

                      Here is the new XP Codec Pack with all the changes:
                      Simply overwrite the files in the OEM .ISO folder and let me know if something else need to be changed.

                        the 1.4.7 version - yeah. Adding it in external filters and prefering it causes an error (forgot the error code, but I think you probably experienced the same thing as I? the vid didn't load at all) and with disabling the LAV Video Decoder, same thing. However, the 1.4.6 version (https://sourceforge.net/projects/mpcbe/files/MPC-BE/Release%20builds/1.4.6/standalone_filters-mpc-be.1.4.6.x86.7z/download) does work, in both methods i tried.
                        I'll be testing the pack real soon, to see how it overall works.

                        Just tested the pack (copied the OEM folder from the ISO and replaced the files, then opened both the programs cmd and the settings cmd). With the LAV Filters the video in MPC-HC was flickering, but with MPC Video Renderer it didn't. IIRC with the LAV Filters built-in the K-Lite Codec Pack (and with their own MPC-HC build) that i tested before installing the XP Codec Pack, there was no flickering happening. Keep in mind I tested it in VBox 6.1, w/o the Direct3D "acceleration" for the reasons i was writing about earlier, so I'd say to take the results with a grain of salt.
                        I'll be installing the latest VMware Workstation shortly, maybe then things will be different.

                          I tested different thinks with different videos formats and here are my findings:
                          1. K-Lite v13.8.5 - All x264/x265 videos are playing upside down.
                          2. XP LAV Filters v0.74.1.9 - x265 videos are flickering.
                          3. Original LVA Filters v0.70.2 - Working.
                          4. MPC-BE v1.4.7 (Internal Filters) - Working.
                          5. PotPlayer - Everything works except the x265 videos are opening slow.
                          6. VLC - Everything works.

                            What test videos did you use? I'm using these ones:
                            https://h265.webmfiles.org/ (Austrian Alps Timelapse).

                            Anyway here are my tests with your codec pack:
                            Aight, so here's what I got (used test videos from https://h265.webmfiles.org/, Assume we were using the LAV Filters 0.74.1.9):
                            Video Mixer Renderer (windowed):
                            *vp8/webm - laggyness (same for vp9/webm videos)
                            *h264 - only audio plays throughout the playback, video doesn't render and seems to freeze MPC-HC; had to tskill it
                            *h265 - laggyness
                            *MPEG2 - audio only played, video did't render at all, but this time it almost locked up my system; good thing these test videos were of short length.
                            System Default:
                            (uses VMR too, so no difference)
                            Video Mixer Renderer (renderless):
                            *vp8/webm - same thing as windowed
                            *h264 - same thing as windowed
                            *h265 - same thing as windowed
                            *MPEG2 - same thing as windowed
                            Enhanced Video Renderer: (2nd place)
                            *vp8/webm - playback is fine, smoothyness is okay, considering the accelerated hardware
                            *h264 - same as above
                            *h265 - same as above
                            *MPEG2 - same as above
                            Enhanced Video Renderer (Custom Presenter):
                            can't get this to work at all, maybe this mode is truly for Vista and above, compared to regular EVR
                            madVR: (1st place)
                            *vp8/webm - playback is fine, smoother than EVR
                            *h264 - same as above
                            *h265 - same as above
                            *MPEG2 - same as above
                            Misc: Old Video Renderer (3rd place) seems to also be fine, but Overlay Mixray Renderer is very meh, lag-wise.
                            Reassuming:
                            Video Mixer Renderer (nor System Default which i guess defaults for VMR in XP) is no-go (laggyness on WEBM[VP9] videos, and the MP4[H264] videos weren't
                            rendered at all), unless lag is your thing! But EVR (the regular variant, which supports XP w/ .NET 3.5) and madVR is doing their job best! Think the old video renderer is also
                            doing job fine too, if you consider that as an alternative for VMR.
                            Couldn't get the 1.4.7 version of MPC Video Renderer to work for some god-knows-why reason, though. 1.4.6 does work, though!
                            With MPC Video Decoder filter instead of LAV Video, we can't use Old Video Renderer as Video just freezes, but audio is fine & doesn't softlock; It slightly improved things for
                            VMR (windowed & renderless) when it comes to H264 and MPEG2 videos, but the playback smoothness still leaves a lot to wish for. EVR (and it's custom presenter
                            variant) is still unchanged, and madVR is still on top!

                            I'll install K-Lite standard and see how it behaves without changing the defaults (renderer and filter-wise). Keep in mind it's still a VM, it would be good if somebody tested on real HW (don't have any that i could spare right now).

                            EDIT: Just a quick update before i install K-Lite, Redownloaded the MPCVideoDec.ax 1.4.7 filter from the repo, regsvr32'd it and added it in External Filters, where i moved these two entries related to the filter to top, and set it to Prefer (and disabled LAV Video, just in case), and it seems it worked. So far no difference compared to 1.4.6

                              I used some x264/x265 TV Show rips to test it.
                              Can you test VLC? For me this one has no problems at all on Windows XP and it uses 30% less CPU resources.

                                Tested, I kinda had mixed experiences with it before but neverless, the video playback was fine and smooth
                                Installed K-Lite Standard 13.8.5, the System Default output (aka VMR) is still crap but this time it doesn't hang up. old Video Renderer, EMR, and madVR is still better. Using the LAV Filters built-in.
                                Gonna try MPC-BE next.
                                Edit: with MPC-BE and its inbuilt filters, i still have to say System Default/VMR is crap. EMR still works okay (now along with the custom presenter, but couldn't find any performance difference). With the madVR from XP Codec Pack, it's perfect.

                                  I did now a XP Codec Pack version with MPC-BE.
                                  Still not sure if i should use the "XP Codec Pack" or re-add the VLC Media Player.

                                  To test the x265 functionality simply download one of this Episodes:

                                    Tested it, System Default, OMR and VMR7/9 is still shit, EVR is still same but the custom presenter variation performs better this time! madVR still doesn't cease to amaze me, so it's still at top.
                                    So for VMware 16.1.0, I think madVR or EVR (Custom Presenter) video renderer is the best, Now, taking in account general hardware, I'd set EVR (Custom Presenter) as default as not every HW could take advantage of madVR. Keep in mind EVR is XP-compatible if .NET 3.5 (or above, i think) is installed.
                                    However if you want to go for the VLC route, I'd make sure to keep the LAV Filters only installed, from the codec pack, as it could be useful for other programs/games, so it can work globally.
                                    I think that's about it for VMs, now's the time for people testing it on real HW, IMO.

            I always found the media player HC(I'm using xpen pack portable version)to be more stable than Black Edition version and has smoother hevc playback. The codec team tool 6.3.9 is the last version for XP as said. Thanks.

    Hi Ramsey,

    I installed XP and it went great. But I notice that the Local Disk is mounted as E:\ and not C:\. How do I change the local disk to C? I tried an old MS tutorial involving the registry but that broke the system.

    Regards.

      Windows XP doesn't like it when you change the driver letter after the installation.
      You would need to change all the register path entries from "E:" to "C:" and "E?" to "C?"

    Ola Ramsey.
    After integrating the original Spanish updates up to 2014 to Windows XP Original Spanish, the memory was reduced from 15.9 GB to 3.11 GB.
    I tried to activate "PAE 3.5+ RAM Unlock" manually from the folder inside "WinXP-IE Optional Patch Integrator v2.4.1b2" but the command only activates for a time of less than one (1) second giving no time to run it because it closes immediately.
    I then downloaded "WinXP-IE Optional Patch Integrator v2.4.1b4" hoping that this new version would help but the same thing happened.
    Then I downloaded "WinXPPAE_v3" and the same thing happened, although it seems to be the same as the one integrated in "WinXP-IE Optional Patch Integrator v2.4.1b4".
    How do I recover the previously recognized memory? Thanks in advance.

      The patched files are being overwritten by the new Windows XP updates.
      You need to run the Patch file with the CMD command:
      ENTER-PATH\WinXP-PAE-Patch.exe /M:128GB
