Just for clarification, If I had installed Windows 2000, would WebOne run on it? And Windows 98?
The proxy should be ran on a modern PC with .NET Framework 4.6 (or newer).
Compiled stable build for Windows 7 SP1+ is in the EXE folder of this repository.
.NET 4.6 doesn't work on Windows 98 or Windows 2000. Windows 2000 only support .NET 4.0 using Blackwingcat Extended Kernel with the modified .NET 4.0. Windows 98 only supports .NET 2.0.
I've never used Mono on Windows so not sure what operating systems it's compatible with but it looks like the last version compatible with XP was Mono v3.2.3 which might work on 2000 with Blackwingcat Extended Kernel or with KernelEx on Windows 98.
You can point both operating systems browsers to a modern PC running the proxy though.
I don't see anything wrong with it. Not sure why anyone wold get so worked up over asking if the project was still active. 😕
When the initial post was made it was about 30 days since the last commit which is an extremely long time, I didn't think that was too long of a time to assume the project was abandoned so for that I apologize profusely.
After an excruciatingly long 51 days of no commits the developer posted here stating that development was not abandoned.
