In a run-up to the launch of the GeForce 8600, Nvidia has prepared a bridge between upcoming mainstream 8600 for US$199 and high-end 8800GTS cards for US$449. The bridge's name is the 8800GTS 320MB.

Nvidia has simply reduced the amoun of memory to ten 32MB chips instead of the current 64MB ones, and cut the price by US$150 dollars to an affordable US$299. The card still has an G80 GPU working at 500MHz with 96 scalar shaders clocked at 1.2GHz. Memory clock has also remained the same, 800MHz DDR (1.6GHz) which yields 64GB/s of bandwidth.

According to our source we will be seeing these on the shelves and available in around 10 days time.

Hey yall, does anyone know if there's any possible way to extract the contents of an EXE file?

Here's my problem... I'm trying to install CellFactor and it's designed only to be installed under WinXP so I get the error message at the beginning of the installer "You must be running Windows XP to install this software" blah blah.

Well in the past usually I'm able to surf to the temp folder and find the files that the installer extracted so that I can force the actual installer in to WinXP compatibility mode. So far from what I've seen the CellFactor installer doesn't extract those files in to a temp folder, but I do see where it says extracting CellFactor.msi or whatever during the first step setup of cf.exe.

How can I get the files out of the cf.exe file so I can set the CellFactor.msi to WinXP compat mode?

Thx in advance!

you might have to go into binary level to do that. or you could try once it has finished extracting, leave the installer and search for the cellfactor.msi file. Normally when you close the installer it will delete the files.

sometimes WinRAR will.
Guess it depends how it was compiled.

Is it possible for u to hold the installer at a point where it asks for some user input ? or does it crap out b4 anything like that ?

If there is a point like this, then search u`r whole drive for the file, it`s possible it uses it`s own temp folder location. I`ve had some progs use other partitions b4 now, and not delete them afterwards, most annoying.

thx for the suggestions. winrar is a no go on this one, was the first thing i tried. the only place the extractor stops is at the end telling me i need xp. ive tried leaving that message up and searching for the file but it cant be found. it has to be somewhere right?

It all depends on what program was used to package the EXE mate.

Already tried, no luck :(

There has to be a damn workaround for this installer!

Just found a 1337 arse new program that allowed me to get the contents extracted! It's called Universal Extractor and it's bomb-diggity. I suggest it to anyone if they have to pull what i just did....
