Hello admin,
I could not contact you through private messages, so I have a question:
Do you still have the Chromium 69 build you made compatible with Windows XP? The link is dead!

This is the dead download link I am looking for: http://browser.taokaizen.com/download/A ... 1325.0.zip

But, the old topic mentions that you removed the material design to make Chrome 69 compatible with Windows XP? Do you still have the code for that build by chance?

Thank you!

Hello, version 69 won't work under XP, at that time material design could be disabled with some minor hack, they keep refactoring all the code so it's very hard to keep track of everything.

Sadly the last version for XP is v54, time to move to linux! ;)

Even if the code no longer compiles for you, do you still have the code (69.0.1325.0) available? Please, if you can just recall whether you had restored GDI rendering on that XP-supported build, that would be great to know!! DoaJC_Blogger figured out how to get Chromium to compile because he obtained an older version of the tools!

If you can share that GDI restoration code with him, then he'll also give you co-ownership of the code.

Thank you for your time!

Hello JiaoTongNan, I don't have the code of the GDI hack anymore, it was really easy because it was just a flag, a boolean, later it was impossible to restore GDI because google developers removed everything, we are talking about +10,000 lines of code they removed just to get rid of this.

Was this version 69, http://browser.taokaizen.com/download/A ... 1325.0.zip, just a renamed Advanced Chrome 52 or something? It was posted all the way back in 2016, over 2 years before the official 69 release

It's linked in this thread viewtopic.php?t=2662

Yes, Custom build of advanced chrome 69 was based on chrome 48, 52, 58 and 69, as far as I remember V8 was 52 and other parts where 48 (sandbox) while it had some 58 and 69 patches, it was some kind of beast that I do not recommend using it any more.

You guys running XP need to move on, please ;D

I don't really use XP, but would like to try it for fun and see what it can do
