  3. Hi. I have downloaded RC1, but not yet tested !... Then I saw the oppurtunity to download this new RC2 from MS, so I used this link : http://download.windowsvista.com/preview/rc2/en/download.htm It was downloading but it crashed, and I lost my download. Now if I go to the same link, I am redirected to : http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/ An from here only the previous RC1 is accesible ! So what happened ? MS has closed its site for RC2 downloads ? Is it permanent ? Now what can I do to get this RC2 without the working link from MS ? From any other sites (FTP, HTTP, sites persos, IP addresses, ...) ? Thanks if you can help me. Bye.
  4. Hi. Your drivers is for video cameras ? But is it also for webcams (usb) ? Like my Logitech QuickCam Express ? And what about image controls of my webcam ? Where are they ? Thanks.
  5. Hi. My "Win 98 Ultimate Pack v Alpha 2.0" is : - torrented at : http://www.torrentportal.com - splited at : http://rapidshare.de/users/4YDL29 It consists of 4 separate Packs, depending of what you need. Next month, I will open a new thread : "Win 98 Ultimate Pack v Beta 1.0" It will still consist of 4 separate Packs (same places of downloading). It will contain : - bug corrections. - more docs. - 4 more Tools. - at last : a General Setup Script Beta 1.0 (no error handling : if there is no script crashes, then it will do all automaticvally very smoothly, including auto-multi-re-boots, and auto-logins, and auto-config of Tools, and therefore, as it does not use any Windows tweaks to install .dll or .ocx or .sys or whatever, it is the most secure and stable setup ever provided, because your Windows will never get corrupted, because it does exactly what you would do by yoursel manually). Thanks. Bye. Sorry to compete with other packs here, but I am your friends all of you...
  6. Hi still. Well, I think I will post today, at least, my first pack, which is only 40 MB, on rapidshare, and that consists of all the latest MS Windows Updates for Windows 98 + its main new components. Because I think it is necessary that you guys take this with you and release at least a Final SP3 of the unofficial service pack for Win98SE ! Thanks. URL : http://rapidshare.de/users/4YDL29
  7. Hi again. Well I 'm not really sure about my torrented files : tell me if you see them and if you can get them and at what speed ? I really need some help to host again my new 4 packs of my version V Alpha 2.0 (older files are obsoletes now). So, for now, I post again on rapidshare at least the List of all the packages, but not yet the splited packages again, at : http://rapidshare.de/users/4YDL29 Thanks. Bye.
  8. Hi guys. Well I think now I have realized all your wishes : I have listened to all you guys, and I have done the following to my own new pack : - correct bugs. - add more docs. - add more Tools, and in particular, alternative and free Tools, as you wished. - added latest July 2006 MS Win Updates for Win98 + more others. - separated my too big pack into 4 categories : - MS Win Updates only. - MS Free others Tools. - 3rd party Free Tools. - 3rd party Trials Tools. - I have torrented all the 4 packs, but you must test it now, coz I dont know if it works (my PC is slow, and my connection is only ADSL 256 kbps, and it ON 10 hrs/day from INDIA). Here are the names of the files torrented from my PC : Win98UltimatePackFullVAlpha20-list.zip Win98UltimatePackMSWinUpdatesVAlpha20-list.zip Win98UltimatePackMSFreesVAlpha20-list.zip Win98UltimatePackXTraFreesVAlpha20-list.zip Win98UltimatePackXTraToolsVAlpha20-list.zip Win98UltimatePackMSWinUpdatesVAlpha20.zip Win98UltimatePackMSFreesVAlpha20.zip Win98UltimatePackXTraFreesVAlpha20.zip Win98UltimatePackXTraToolsVAlpha20.zip MD5SumCodes.zip unzip32.exe winzip100.exe You can download the Lists first to have a look, and then you can go for the Zip Pack of your choice. NB : to not be confused by other packs here, I have re-named my Pack as : "Win 98 Ultimate Pack" (coz it is over-loaded of all the main stuff a decent PC98 may need from scratch !). And it is a Version Alpha 2.0. Still no setup script inside : I need your help, because I may not provide one before months... Thanks again.
  9. Yes it is time limited. But the Tweaks you do with it remains after time limit, even after un-installing ! But you may not be able to reverse what you have done... Thanks for 6.6 anyway !
  10. Hi. I have posted the Full Update Package V Alpha 1.0 in 7 splited files of 95 MB each !.... To know the content before : download the List + their MD5 Hash Codes ! To test all these Tools, and help me provide an automatic Setup for all the Tools, with a dialog box that asks to check what to install, and then etc... : download the package, unzip it, goto into the folder, read the docs, and launch Setup. That's all !... Next target : - eliminate Tools not possible to include in a Free package distribution, and place a Link to the download page instead, with automatic downloading, and installing ? Any help from someone ? - replace some of these Tools, by better and optimized and bug-free and Free Tools : tell me which ones to use, and where to find their latest stable non-beta versions ? - build an automated General Setup, for all the Tools, with GUI, at once ! Thanks. I guess also that my Package is similar to other Packages proposed here also, so, I may change my Package to not include what is already in other Packages, and to provide a complementary Package, with Tools that were not included in these others Packages. So, what do you think ? Link for downloadings : http://rapidshare.de/users/4YDL29 It may take you 1 full day to download all !... (Sorry for now). In the next weeks I will work on a General Automated GUI Setup. I will collect also myself all the Windows Updates from the first install of Win98SE, until their last Updates on the 11/07/06, and will include them in my Package (some are already there). Thanks again.
  11. Hi. First, folks, I appreciate a lot all the posts here after mine ! I agree that from my original list on this post, there may be some of these tools better replaced by some others (but I dont know any of them...), and that some new other good tools have also been mentioned here (but I need time to discover them). That's why I will stay with my own list for the moment, and will see later what changes to make to it, with your help, of course. But just think about that : since a few times, and now more and more since support will end in 11/07/06 for Win98SE, any kind of new tools may only work for XP !!! So, where are you gonna download from all these tools, in their prior versions, when they were still compliant with Win98SE ??? That's why I would like to submit my own package of old installers (only Win98SE latest versions !), because nobody may be able to find them again on Internet ! But I need your help : my package is about 700 MB (I know this is huge, but I have no expertize in reducing Setups), and contains no Setup Scripts ! So : 1/ Where on Internet can I upload 700 MB of a single zip file, to be accessed by anyone from its URL, with a good speed and bandwith, and of course, for FREE ? Maybe one of your own servers ??? 2/ Who can help me to build the Setup Scripts, since I dont have at present a Win98SE PC to test anything (but as soon as I can, I will do that also). 3/ How to reduce the size of my package without disminushing the full complete variety/quality of its offering ? 4/ NB : my package does not contain anything illegal, but may require that all the separate licenses of each tool to be re-viewed again carefully, before deciding to keep some tools in the final package, or to remove them from the final package, because my package is actually an Alpha 1.0 (not to be distributed, but may be downloaded for testing and commenting and helping). Thanks.
  12. Hi. Ok : 2 pbs ? 1/ Preferences of their own pgs by each user : so, make this pack with optionable installs only in it ! 2/ Files associations : so make this pack as a distribution of installers only, and each user manually install and configure files associations as he wishes. Or better : provide a script that will install and configure each soft with compliant pre-defined files associations, so no hassle (just the question how to decide all these configs from your side only...). Oh, by the way I forgot 2 of my favorites : - Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.4. - X-Setup Pro 8.1 (http://www.x-setup.net/). And no : MSN Messenger 7.5 is not supported in Win98SE (only 7.0)... Thanks anyway. Bye.
  13. Hi. You know, when I compare this SP with AutoPatcher, I am frustrated !... Look : I think there should be a separate release, called the "Full Release", and that would contain more tools, utilities, softs, and updates, to make our Win98SE the best system that we like so much to continue to use ! For example, what I would suggest to include here are : - acrobat reader 6.04 (I have all the updates with me). - Croa 1.6 Free (http://www.davidcrowell.com/) - JStrip 3.3 Free (http://www.davidcrowell.com/) - DivX 5.2.1 Free (I have the setup with me). - Flash Player 9.0 Free (I have the setup standalone with me). - Shockwave Player 10 Free (I have the setup standalone with me). - Latest version of "HOSTS" Free (http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm) - Nero InCD Reader Free 4.3.2.0.1 Free (I have the setup with me). - IrfanView 3.98 Free (http://www.irfanview.com/) - MS .NET 1.1 + Updates (I have files). - MS .NET 2.0 - MS IE 6.0SP1 Full Install for Win98SE + Latest Cumulative Security Update for Win98SE (11/07/06 ?). - MS DAC 2.8 + Update. - MS Media Player 9.0 + Updates. - MSN Messenger 7.0 for Win98SE (I have latest build). - All Free MS Office Viewers (I have all the latest setups). - MS VB Runtimes 1.0 + 2.0 + 3.0 + 4.0 + 5.0SP2 + 6.0SP6 (I have all files). - MS Win Installer 2.0 - MS Win Script 5.6 for Win98SE. - QuikTime 6 for Win98SE (I have latest build). - Real Player Free Gold 10.5 (I have the setup). - SpyWareBlaster 3.51 Free (http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/). - StartUp CPL 2.8 Free (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml). - MSJVM 3.8.0.5 - SunJava2RTSE2015007 (www.sun.com). - WinAmp Full 5.24 (http://www.winamp.com/) - WinImage 8.0 (http://www.winimage.com/). - Music Match JukeBox 9.0 for Win98SE (I have latest build). - WinRar 3.51 (http://www.rarsoft.com/download.htm). - WinZip 10.0 (www.winzip.com) - WinZip Self Extractor 2.2 (www.winzip.com) - WS_FTP 5.0.8 LE Free for Win98SE (I have the setup). - Yahoo Messenger 7.5 (I have standalone setup). - Zone Alarm Free for Win98SE 6.1.744.001 (I have latest setup. New version 6.5 does not support Win98 !). - AVG Free 7.1.394a763 (http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/lng/us/tpl/v5#avg-free). - Free Pascal 2.02 (www.freepascal.org). - MS DirectX 9.0c Full Redistributable Package of June 2006 Edition (I have setup with me). So ? What do you think ? OK : maybe, for legal reasons, some of them may not be possible to include to this update... OK : maybe, for some lacking of time and ressources, some of them may not be possible to include in this update... OK : maybe, to avoid to increase too much the size of the downloadable update, some of them may not be possible to include to this update... But, anyway, now we have all broadbands, I would not mind spending one hour dowloading 400 MB of Setup, that would include the maximum of all of these !!! So, what do you think ? Look at these tools carefully : they are very great, and they deserve to be included in any decent Win98SE installation, to complete and serve it better and fully, mainly for Internet use, with all the multimedia comfort and security !!! Thanks.

  15. Yes guys. The correct date is effectively : 11/07/06 !! And this is for sure : no more updates or hotfixes or anything new or any support of any kind after this date, either from the download pages of MS website, or either by windows update !!! Maybe windows update may continue to be used, supposed by a user that just re-installed his Win98SE, AFTER the 11/07/06, but I'm not sure, and for how long, that is the big question..... So, guys, that is why it becomes more and more important that this unofficial SP get updated AFTER the final 11/07/06, let's say in August/September 2006 : We will really need a new version (2.5 ?), that will be the last one, and that will last forever and forever : Any future install of Win98SE would only need this new version, and that's done ! No need to go windows update, because it may not work anyway !!!
