Re: Willing to share XP patches for Chrome 76

It says it's missing DWrite.dll. FranceBB (from another forum) opened my build in Dependency Walker. Here are the screenshots he posted.

Willing to share XP patches for Chrome 76

I started with Chromium 76 and fixed a long list of errors on Windows XP before reaching the point where I have to replace DirectWrite with GDI. I tried several times without success. A few people have expressed interest in the code for my Chromium project but I declined to share it. I'm willing to ...

Re: Build Chromium 49 in 2019

Arkmage2: I was able to build Chromium 44 this year, 32 and 64-bit, and the 64-bit version even runs on 64-bit XP. I had to get a copy of the depot_tools they had in 2015 and use the Wayback Machine to read the build instructions available at the time of the build I was doing. Here's a full list of ...

Re: TLS 1.3 Support for XP custom build

I think Windows XP x64 Edition has better TLS/SSL support. There are sites I can visit on it that I can't on 32-bit XP.

Re: Is there a way to port the old non-material design to newer versions of Chrome?

Alex654: I have a Discord group about Chromium development if you'd like to join. I didn't cooperate with the Advanced Chrome author. Instead, I'm working with Tarnyko from the #chromium IRC. I've already replaced several function calls that don't work on XP and I'm stuck at an issue caused when PSA...

I don't know. If enough people are interested, then maybe. I hadn't really considered that.

Re: Is there a way to port the old non-material design to newer versions of Chrome?

I'm going to write about this on my blog when I make some more progress. The end goal is to make it run on Windows XP.

Re: Is there a way to port the old non-material design to newer versions of Chrome?

My custom build has shorter, trapezoid-shaped tabs. I also increased the contrast between active and inactive tabs. I did this with Chromium 76.0.3771.0.

Re: Help with compiling Chromium from 2015

I got Chromium from 2015 to compile and run on Windows XP. I was able to compile both 32 and 64 bit versions and the 64-bit version ran on 64-bit Windows XP. I'm still interested in writing my own XP-compatible fork. I heard on IRC that it might be easier to make a current version of Chromium run on...

Re: Help with compiling Chromium from 2015

@admin: Have you considered implementing a DirectShow-based decoder for Advanced Chrome? That would enable it to decode MP4 and MP3 on Windows XP.

Re: Help with compiling Chromium from 2015

Thank you for the reply. I managed to make it compile by getting an old copy of the depot_tools, but it still doesn't run on Windows XP.

Help with compiling Chromium from 2015

Can someone, perhaps the admin, help me out with compiling an older Windows XP-compatible copy of Chromium? I was able to do a "gclient sync" and get a version from 2015 to compile about 10% before failing. I'd like to work on a fork similar to Advanced Chrome so I would like to learn how the admin ...
