  1. The version I had before was either 7-18-2007 or 8-27-2007. Pretty sure it was the 8-27-2007 one.
  2. Hey, I've got a bit of a problem. I've installed 98SE on many machines, and I've been working on another right now. Installing 98SE2ME (option 1, then option 3) has been pretty routine in my setups, and so far I've had at worst minor issues. Thing is, this time around, Option 1 installs just fine, but installing Option 3 causes a crash (One of those error messages where you can pick Close or Details) in EXPLORER through process EXPLORER.EXE right after I log on (before the desktop shows up). Thus, I can't access anything. Safe mode will not work either. Here are the details of the error, taken using a VGA image capture tool on another computer: I have a feeling that the issue is being caused by something that has changed in one of the update packs I installed before installing 98SE2ME, as this time around I started using newer versions of these packs than I have used before. I'm just wondering what kind of incompatibility might be occuring (and with what file), and how I can fix it. I have a hard disk image saved of after I installed Option 1, so if the Option 3 installation keeps failing, I can keep restoring my image until the problem is fixed. Anyways, here's the order I've installed the updates in: * Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 *DirectX 9.0c * 98 SE SP 3.0 BETA 3 *Windows Update, including WMP 9.0 *WUPG98 Carinthian LH Edition *Autopatcher Dec 2007 FINAL *Maximus Decim InternetExplorer 6.0sp1 Component Update 2.4 *Maximus Decim Cumulative Update ver.3.05 (includes NUSB 3.3) *Maximus Decim Data Access Component Update 1.4 *98SE2ME 11-19-2008 Option 1 *98SE2ME 11-19-2008 Option 3 (FAILED!) Any tips would be greatly appreciated. P.S.: I could have sworn I saw one of those "Not enough memory" errors DOS likes to sometimes give right before my machine rebooted for Option 3. Don't know if this happened for Option 1.
  3. Quick question for anyone willing to answer: do you reccomend the current 3.0 Beta1 version or the stable 2.1a verison of this pack?
  4. You know, making a wishlist isn't going to convice tihiy about what to put and not put in RP8...
  5. Looks promising, though I haven't had a chance to test it out yet... I'm especially looking forwards to using the removal feature, since my context menu always seems to be cluttered with options I don't need.
  6. Just a warning: Revolutions Pack 7 can sometimes be incredibly unstable on some systems/configurations (and almost seems random what those systems are). Unless you want some of RP7's applets or icons, I'd suggest using UberSkin with 98SE2ME Option 3 over using Revolutions Pack 7.
  7. I think employing some sort of compression can easily overcome the pain of 10,000 files. Of course, RP8/UberSkin will need to have extra code to decompress these files on the fly, and that seems to me a bit more than it's worth, both on Tihiy's time and on a user's system resources (though it WOULD be cool). BTW, of Tihiy's 3 choices, I think the second one is the best. It seems a good compromise of the pros and cons offered by the other two choices.
  8. Paul Thurrott's Windows SuperSite has a release schedule for SP3: (SOURCE: http://www.winsupersite.com/faq/xp_sp3.asp) I'm a tad annoyed that there won't be CDs until late May... Also, am I the only one who noticed that SP3 suddenly requires SP1 or SP2 to be installed first? (SOURCE: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsxp/cc164204.aspx)
  9. Hm... No Linux option with that? But I jest. Anyways, I'm probably going to either get Vista or go with Option F. It depends when I get around to getting my next computer (mine's 6 years old running XP, but works just fine).
  10. Well, it happened again, but this time it's wierd... it's not MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. Despite the same circumstances, I've now gotten a different error: a 0x000000A0 INTERNAL_POWER_ERROR. (Don't remember the parameters). This is beyond bizarre...
  11. Well, before I go right now to get the memory dumps off the laptop (there are multiple; hopefully Windows has kept them), I just want to add one thing: This only seems to happen on rare occasion (only 4 times since I got the laptop 9 months ago). Most of the time when I'm watching live TV it works flawlessly. Would it still be the TV card's input/capture driver, or is there a chance it's some other driver related to Media Center?
  12. I guess nobody else is having this problem... I'll check again for hardware or RAM problems, and also see if SP1 fixes this, but everything seems like it's okay (except SP1, which I haven't tested yet...)
  13. Hi. I have a problem that's been bugging me. I've been getting BSODs on a recent HP Laptop running Vista Home Premium (specs: 160GB HDD, 2GB RAM, GeForce Go 128?MB, Athalon 64x2 2.0 GHz). Thing is, I've checked for both RAM issues and driver problems (old versions, incompatible with Vista versions, etc...) and so far everything seems to be OK. Thing is, whenever I watch TV using my TV Tuner card in Media Center, sometimes, when I'm not doing anything but watching live TV (no changing channels or rewinding or fast-forwarding), I will get a 0x0000001A MEMORY_MANAGEMENT Blue Screen error. (The sound of whatever was just on will just stop at the point of the error and make an elongated sound of that tune until I power down). And, by the way, I'm not getting this error outside of Media Center's live tv feature. I suspect that this error MAY be HP's fault, since I haven't checked if they used incompatible hardware (the hardware itself, not the drivers) or overclocked anything... So... anybody else having this problem? Any suggestions to fix it?
  14. 1) "Is ... made yet?" / "Will there be a new version of ..." topics aren't generally taken very well around these parts... 2) If you still want to ask, this belons on the AutoPatcher topic.
  15. This might be a bit off topic, but I can't help but noticing that you have Vista-like transparent windows. HOW did you get those under Win9x?
