  1. Windows ME Service Pack

    Version 3.01B: The problem "The dialog box to unplug or eject hardware doesn't open anymore" isn't fixed by removing USBMON.dll. The "unplug" of the USB device doesn't work. There must be another cause.
  2. Yes, it works for Opera Presto. I tested 12.02, 11.64, 10.01, 10.1, 10.63 and 12.18 on XP. The Sign in isn't possible directly especially with 11.64. Possible for example: 1. Zoom to max + Fit to Width, 2. Uncheck Page Style sheet, 3. try it via "IPS Default", if necessary uncheck JavaScript for it.
  3. No MSFN forums with Opera Presto engine

    Thanks for the condolence. small movie
  4. Is there hope to use the Presto engine of Opera again to visit that board? Since one week, I get only a blue screen with a short text "ipsfocus42-november1". It would be a great pity, because my favorite OS is ME. Latest version 12.18 on XP is also affected.
  5. For three or four days, I get only a blue background here on this board and a short text "ipsfocus42-november1". All Opera versions (10.1 up to 12.5) are affected. Do you have the same problem and did you find a setting or workaround?
  6. Help, registry corruption 98SE

    The files or fragments that scandisk found are often not recoverable. But you can check "Convert to file". Then Scandisk saves the fragments in C. The Filename Extension is CHK. Afterwards you can try open the CHK file(s) with notepad. Perhaps something is readable. Also there are tools like deCHK. DeCHK recognises about 50 file extensions. There are many free clone tools like HDClone or CloneZilla. I recommend the self-booting version or ISO file, which you burn on CD.
  7. There is no version Opera 12.50. It is 12.5 (Snapshot build 1513) and is older than 12.15. The introduced plugin wrapper doesn't run on 98/ME. So the FlashPlayerPlugin doesn't work in Opera 12.5 and higher. The HTML5 player runs inside 12.5 with only 360p and a saving possibility (right click menu) of 480p.
  8. Probably a typo: It isn't 11.63, but 10.63. FF9.01 runs stable without bookmark function on 98/ME and KernelEX. It was reported that FF10 runs on some systems, too. But mostly not.
  9. Opera 12.15 or FF 43 don't work on 98/ME, neither with KernelEX. @Nomen: Yes, the 98/ME community isn't important in the wider internet, but I think it should be on this MSFN board site.
  10. This report should be into the topic "Forum upgrade to v4.2!". But yes these buttons (Home-Microsoft Software Products-Windows 9x/ME...) don't work. You can create bookmarks or zoom the page to +. Then the look changes and you see only one working button. I don't think it has become much worse than before. Of course, these are annoying glitches.
  11. In preparation of a system to test the ME ServicePack the chipset driver did not work as expected. Probably there is something wrong in the inf file, perhaps in relation to PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_29C1.DeviceDesc="Intel G33/G31/P35 Express PCI Express Root Port - 29C1" %PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_29C1.DeviceDesc%=PCI_BRIDGE_DRV,PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_29C1 The driver NV 82.69 doesn't work! Nwiz causes an error in Kernel32.dll. It works with xrayer's chipset driver. The graphics card is NV7900GS (256MB), the Board is an Asus P5KPL/1600. Date 08/10/2017 Time 12:55 NWIZ caused an invalid page fault in module KERNEL32.DLL at 016f:bff8e64b. Registers: EAX=007a10cc CS=016f EIP=bff8e64b EFLGS=00000206 EBX=82de71ec SS=0177 ESP=007a0f1c EBP=007a10cc ECX=00000177 DS=0177 ESI=df27a000 FS=249f EDX=007a10bc ES=0177 EDI=00000f8e GS=0167 Bytes at CS:EIP: cc a1 f0 bc fb bf 8b 00 66 64 f7 05 1c 00 00 00 Stack dump: 01350000 82de7238 00000005 82df11c4 82df11d8 c1d58100 00000000 007a10d8 ffecbad7 007a0f6c 007a0f50 0000000e 00000007 00000000 00000000 007a0f74 Unfortunately, I can not say anything more exact. I will continue to investigate this.
  12. Windows ME Service Pack

    Today I installed the ServicePack, Main Updates and Optional Updates. The System File Protection (StateMgr) must be disabled, otherwise the update files are stored in the spf folder C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\sfp\archive or get 001. The restart doesn't work after installation. The restart is possible after ending Task. The dialog box to unplug or eject hardware doesn't open anymore.
  13. Yes, 7.4.2 crashes by the attempt to open a write-protected txt file here too. It doesn't crash on Vista. So probably it isn't a new bug of notepad++. GetLogicalProcessorInformation comes first with Vista and XPSP3. Hence the OS requirements go up for notepad++.
  14. Does the problem still exist? Did you try 7.4.1 or 7.4.2. Version 7.4.2 requires [Kernel32.dll] GetLogicalProcessorInformation= GetNumaHighestNodeNumber= QueryDepthSList= in the Kstub.ini. KexBeta17 already supports these API's. The Toolbar is back with 7.4.2.
  15. Hello jumper, the definition of GetAdaptersAddresses in Kexbases doesn't work for µTorrent (2.0.4). My OS is WinME. We discussed the problem 2012/13 in the Kext topic. 98SE wasn't affected. It occurred to me on start of programs to test kexbeta17. It works, if I override GetAdapterAdresses of Kexbases.
