I’ll keep post updated if any changes happen.
Recently last officially supported version was [27.4.2]
. But from now on we can use actual version of software.
Here is small instruction list on how to make things rollin’ under mighty Windows 7:
Obtain hacked [QT 6.3.1 DLLs for Windows 7]
[QT6 is not officially supported] Download [CFF Explorer]
[direct link] for basic resource hackery Obviously grab latest zipped archive [OBS Studio 29.
"Windows 7 is not supported by modern Python anymore" The latest official version is [v3.8.15]
. Despite above mentioned dummy statement [Adang1345]

Just a super quick note to refresh previous Blender topic.
As you may already know that [Blender 2.93 can work on Windows 7]
even despite the fact that it is not officially supported. [Alexandru Naiman]
went even deeper and it looks like he made the impossible. Now you can run even the most modern versions of Blender. We are speaking about 3.x branch. Hacked versions can be downloaded [HERE]

Today i want to share my custom made 80s theme for Renoise tracker.
RENOISE `84 [v0.4b] [GRAB IT FROM MEGA.NZ]
To install it just double click on downloaded XRNC files. Renoise will launch and install theme automatically.
Also, i’ve figured out how to change internal font and set custom mouse cursor. Tracker doesn’t provide GUI for such options. All settings related to current skin could be found here:
I’m very satisfied that I covered such a large topic and pretty sure that it is the most complete Windows 7 tweaking guide ever. But due to the lack of spare time it is still in unfinished state, so consider it as a stack of knowledge. Document contain all information [posted here]
plus loads of more detailed stuff.
[DOWNLOAD DOCX VERSION]
Maybe, if i have more free time, i’ll return back to the topic to clean things up someday.
VER 0.4 [SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOMED]
¶ ESSENTIAL INTRODUCTION Finally I get up all one’s courage to compile and publish essential stuff regarding Windows 7 optimization. Note that full version of the guide will be released somewhere around early 2023. Check the warm place to stay on the edge. And now….Let’s dive into the tweaking process!
All console commands should be executed from command line with with administrative privileges. Most of mentioned tweaks could be done via control panel, to enter it in a fast way just type in command line or execute Start Run:
You may already noticed [list of system tweakers]
for Windows 7 on my site header. Just wanted to describe process a bit with the help of plain words and some png pictures for crispy clearness and buttery smooth understanding of the process.
▒ INSTALLATION First step is to obtain high quality distribution of Windows 7. I always recommend [Generation2 builds]
. His repacks include activation, embedded support of modern CPU’s, USB 3.
is a classic cyberpunk movie with grunge’n’trashy aesthetics of 90s. Despite the fact that film is low budget it delivers agreeable analogue warmth. Soundtrack is just gorgeous and match the topic to every last bit of it.

IMPROVING FIREFOX PRIVACY & SECURITY FIREFOX ADDONS [Part I]
Finally I’ve managed to finish this part of the FAQ. Note is a loooong-read, so mistakes can occur » please [report them to me]
One of the most distinctive features of FireFox was customization. With each new version it becomes less customizable, thanks to marketing people at mozilla corp. They do everything to make Firefox look like google chrome.
UPDATED ON: 2023-02-12 ► Added info on 2.93.15 LTS & 3.0 Final Make sure to check [newer post]
regarding refreshed information about modern Blender and Windows 7 compatibility
As we all know that last official Blender build to support Windows 7 is 2.92. Next version requires Python 3.9.x, which is not an option for Windows 7. However, there is a possibility to run new 2.93 version via [DLL HACK]
, which could be applied even to the newest 2.
Note: Don’t worry, your eye sight is ok. I’m just testing CRT-emulation mode via CSS-magic. To remove FX click on any other page.
Back in Pentium 66Mhz days I was a follower of minimal design and always turned off all fancy graphical beauties, for the sake of performance of course. However, today we are not limited to 8Megs of RAM anymore. Therefore, I have decided to transform my Windows 7 installation into Windows Vista.
Even mighty Windows 7 comes with preinstalled junk. Yeah, you can’t go wrong with Microsoft.
In this posting I’ll point you out some bloated stuff, that don’t need regular home user on normal basis.
All of these should be removed to save your disk space and improve system performance.
Of course you run into situations when you would like to copy “non-standard” files to your Android smartphone and dumb MTP protocol showed up window like this one:
And this torture repeated after every new file type copied. Such imbecility can be removed by following command in admin console:
regsvr32 /u wpdshext.dll That’s all, limitation is gone.
Another hint, which potentially can help to overcome weird design of MTP protocol.
The Hackers  - I hope you don't screw like you type.
- It has a killer refresh rate.
- P6 chip. Triple the speed of the Pentium.
- It's not just the chip. It has a PCI bus.
- But... you knew that. Another qoute, which i remembered for life.
- It's got a 28.8 bps modem.
- Yeah? Display? - Active matrix.
