  1. Up and running. But 1-year to attach 1000's of applications to run in XP.

  2. TEST of v9.0.4 complete. ( Perfect ! ) No " kernel32 Patch failure " on BOOTup. Uberskin_XP-256x192.jpg ( 45.16 kb) Uberskin_XP-1024x768.jpg ( 406.6 kb ) Link: Uberskin_XP-1024x768.jpg
  3. Will TEST v9.0.4 version for [ no more ] "kernel32 patch failure" on BOOTup. All other performance is PERFECT . THANKS !
  4. Tihiy , . . . In RP8.dll ( OriginalFilename rp9.dll ) version 9.0.2 or now version 9.0.3 -- the call to UBERHACK.EXE which returns the results of " resource salvation " patch and the results of the " kernel32 patch " Can You allow a User setting to ' TURN OFF ' the " kernel32 patch failed " - on BOOTup ? I managed to modify RPSetup.exe to allow install of RP9 over top of uberskin-v8.3.8.exe AND . ----------------------------------------------------------------- I had to re-install Win98SE " clean " after a complete crash of Win98SE ( back in September 2008 ) . I needed the features of RP4 that I didn't have in Win98SE " clean " . ----------------------------------------------------------------- Uberskin v8.3.8 worked GREAT . My only ( important ) program that would crash on exit -- and corrupt it's database files was ' CA- Simply Money ' . With RP9 & Uberskin , ' CA-Simply Money ' opens , closes , and saves its' database perfectly ! I wish to keep using ( and testing ) RP9 & Uberskin . Thank You if there is a way to DISABLE the RP9 " kernel32 patch failed " popup .
  5. THANK YOU ( Great Work ) Tihiy . Yes [Drugwash] - (32-bit) Icon setting is an INDEPENDENT Windows registry setting , that might already be set to 32-bit icon color before installation. ------------------------------------------------------------------- REGEDIT4 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics] "Shell Icon BPP"="32" "Shell Icon Size"="32" "Shell Small Icon Size"="32" "IconBackground"="8" ------------------------------------------------------------------- These are my personal preference settings . "Shell Small Icon Size"="32" : is not a sticky setting . If Windows theme is changed , it is erased from the registry and all the " small icons" fall to a smaller size - like 16 pixels . I keep the "small icons" regfix on my STARTmenu so that I can merge it to set my small icons back to 32 pixel size. The installer might be sensing the "Shell Icon BPP" registry setting.

  8. The Google Earth COM interface is registered as part of the Google Earth installation process. But since the install of was a NON-standard install < unzip , place in directory, and RUN > the COM interface was ' NOT registered ' . (Ref) ************************************************ If, for some reason, you need to register the Google Earth COM API again, execute GoogleEarth.exe with "/RegServer" as a command line argument. For instance, assuming GoogleEarth.exe is located in C:\Program Files\Google\Google Earth, use the following command line to register Google Earth's COM API: "C:\Program Files\Google\Google Earth\googleearth.exe" /RegServer To unregister the Google Earth COM API, use the following command: "C:\Program Files\Google\Google Earth\googleearth.exe" /UnregServer ************************************************ When I used [RUN] from the Win98SE StartMenu and added the command "C:\ <path to Google Earth EXEfile > \googleearth.exe" /RegServer I found a whole new set of Google Earth entries in the Win98SE registry , beside the existing entries for Google Earth.etafile Google Earth.kmlfile Google Earth.kmzfile
  9. Thanks for input RJARRRPCGP , . . . the overheating possibility could have been HULU TV stream related . In this system re-install journey , _I'm learning that for Google Earth to LOGIN to its' server , _You cannot DISABLE ( active scripting ) for Internet Explorer.
  10. Have moved steadily along to take advantage of this learning opportunity , while ( re-attaching / re-installing ) 6 years worth of applications. Same method was used for the Google Earth install * which is back up and running. Due to this <crash> , It's nice to see the 3D solar system program 'Celestia' through the Primary Nvidia adapter ( In all its' splendor). A result of the newer "super-tiles" method , using HIres textures subdirectories --(5 levels) makes its' rendering very similar to Google Earth ( zooming in ) level0 - 2 tiles level1 - 8 tiles level2 - 32 tiles level3 - 128 tiles level4 - 512 tiles level5 - 2048 tiles
  11. The problem had to to created on the previous 'cleanup' and 'shutdown' ( the night before) . Could not have been: Run SFC ( system file checker) Run Scandisk ( Windows version) Copy Windows , Program Files, Online, Software directories ___ to 2nd and 3rd hard drive. Could be A BUG in the (newest) version of SpyBot - ' search & Destroy ' version 1.6 ( which modifies the Windows registry -- to delete entries ) I did not install the 1.5x versions ( due to the talk on the SpyBot forum) For a while the author's server could not be accessed. And there were NO responses to e-mail (from the author). Many discussions on the forum were about crashed systems after installing ( 1.5x versions) .
  12. *** Didn't get a chance to experiment with UpDated scripting. Major Win98SE CRASH ( about a week ago ) .
  13. ---------------[Entry #____6] Seeking an answer to ****_KMZ files will not open in Google Earth_**** * Also, I cannot save a KMZ file from my installation of Google earth . ( may be a separate issue -- as to "How To save as kmz" As there is an ability to use 'Google Maps' to open KMZ files and OVERLAY in Google Maps . . .(online) I have been using 'Google Maps' as a tool to help configure IExplorer v6 for the proper security settings, so that it ( IE6) performs all the "scripting", "ActiveX" that is required to see a kmz file overlay on Google Earth's cousin ( Google Maps ) . I had the security settings "so tight" at first to : no scripting, no ActiveX components, no javascript, etc. As well as separately using the Norton Script Disabler/Enabler application NoScript.exe (NoScript MFC Application) I used the 'Google Maps' site's error prompts to enable what was needed ( in sequence). Till finally , their user uploaded KMZ files were being displayed within my IExplorer 6 browser window. 'Google Maps' was doing all of the KMZ file decompression by way of their server responding to the webpage that I was viewing .
  14. THANKS . . . very much . You're work is "greatly appreciated" .
  15. ---------------[Entry #____5] SOLUTION: low texture resolution problem -- (blurring when zoomed in) . Post # 6 (from TOP) by Bernhard the way the Operating System ( in his case Windows Vista ) reports the amount of RAM memory available. " Google Earth seems to have a problem with 0x100000000 bytes of memory being reported and reverts to a memory saving low resolution texture mode." Bernhard is offering a solution to a problem caused by Microsoft Vista's "Service Pack 1" . His suggestion ( limiting Windows amount of RAM use ) (Win98SE version of his suggestion here) Start msconfig.exe On the 'General' TAB the 'Advanced ' button [tick] the 'Limit memory to [xxx]MB ---Accept the Windows value there ( 999 or less ) [click] (OK) [click] (Apply) ---Allow Windows to reboot. --------------------------------------------------------- System.ini [386Enh] MaxPhysPage=40000 This creates an entry in the System.ini ( under 40000 ) ----------------------------------------------------------------- I have placed the NEW . . .
