ReactOS hits 0.4!

So as a totally unfair test, I thought I’d load SQL server 6.5 on it.

SQL Server 6.5 on ReactOS

SQL Server 6.5 on ReactOS

After copying in some NT 4.0 dll’s regarding licensing it’ll start to install but the service itself doesn’t work.


MSDE2000 didn’t work either.

And the setup program from SQL 4.21 just crashed.

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!

  1. Duke Nukem 3D (shareware) seems to work in their newer NTVDM, as demonstrated on their YouTube channel, although only without sound (for me, under VBox using QEMU bundle .vmdk). However, lots of other stuff (e.g. DJGPP) still don’t work.

    It’s very impressive that they’ve accomplished so much, but the overall stability leaves much to be desired. And no, the liveCD didn’t boot on native hardware for me, sadly.

  2. For those who cannot make the livecd work on real hardware, 2 weeks before the ReactOS team released a 0.4 version customized for FOSDEM 2016 (that you can find at ) which consists in a hybridcd, containing a ramdisk livecd which can be used when the regular livecd doesn’t work. That version of ReactOS does not differ a lot from the released 0.4.0, so it is worth a try too.
