Hello, dear Classic Theme users. Today I installed the ClassicTheme.exe again. I already had it installed, but my antivirus software didn't let me use it. I downloaded a different version of it and now I can use it again for some reason. I installed it with the tutorial from this video:
As i mentioned earlier, I already had it installed, and everything worked fine. At this time I have a big problem with Google Chrome. It is completely broken. The sites are not working anymore. Even the history, Download list and settings can't be loaded. It shows the 'This site can't be reached' error message, but without an error code. I just can click on 'further information', but again this site can't be reached. Is there a fix for this? I like the way this video uses, because the taskbar is not broken when using the explorer like on the other video (as far as I know, the video is based on a tutorial from this forum, so it should be known what I mean).
Oh, and btw: When I uninstall ClassicTheme via ClassicTheme.exe (I renamed it, because it didn't open as ClassicThemeA.exe) Chrome works again, so it has to be this program, and patching Internet Explorer also does not help.
Can you post a screenshot? It's honestly been a while since I tested Google Chrome with ClassicTheme.exe, and the last time I tested it, the only thing that was broken was the window frame. So I'd like to see it to hopefully get an idea of what's going on.
While I personally do prefer Firefox, some people may want (or even need, in some cases) to use Chrome. I don't think it's a good idea to isolate those users, so If there is a fix for this issue, I think it would be best to find it.
soapmusic27: I have made us a Discord channel: discord.gg/9jtudv Also created a thread about it. I never knew what the Win10 2004 searchbar issue was until just now. For some reason, I am running 2004 with classic theme and the searchbar is unaffected

Splitwirez: Apparently the Windows XP source code has leaked. Keep your distance, folks.

ihatemetro: Splitwirez It was? Which Service Pack? To all people, don't use it for making Windows more Classic. Edit: It's SP1 I can tell, and any Windows NT OS older than XP was also leaked. Edit 2: Bits of Windows 10 source code have also been leaked.

Hayafumi: Well i'm even more scared when 7's will get spilled out on the internet.
Sept 25, 2020 5:38:56 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi Oh no, not 7 or Vista. At least people can find a way to get Windows 10 drivers on 7 and still supply security updates, but still it's going to be illegal.

Hayafumi: Ah, well I will probably switch to 10 and setup Classic Theme or go to Linux pretty soon.
Sept 25, 2020 5:45:12 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi That's not even all of it, Windows CE 3-7, Server 2003, and MS-DOS 3.30 and 6, as well as original Xbox source code have been leaked as well. Bits of Xbox one source code have also been leaked.

Hayafumi: Oh lord, this is the gigaleak like Nintendo but not really.
Sept 25, 2020 6:25:31 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi I also saw a tiny bit of Windows 7 source code once too, but it's a tiny bit and not that important, from 2010. Can't tell if it's real or not.

Hayafumi: There goes another partition on my drive, gonna install either LTSC or LTSB on it.
Sept 25, 2020 13:58:39 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi LTSB 2016 is recommended, it supports Classic Theme and has longer support than LTSB 2015.

Hayafumi: Is kinda of a struggle for me to make Pre-1803 because I can't get everything to start up, but i'll try again.
Sept 25, 2020 15:17:48 GMT -8
Hayafumi: Once again, i'm really new on Classic Theme +8
Sept 25, 2020 15:18:04 GMT -8
Hayafumi: Also, is a struggle finding LTSB 2016.
Sept 25, 2020 19:55:42 GMT -8
Hayafumi: I'm just going with 8.1.
