I can't understand what you are saying... In the old project you found those files?

What I"m saying is Some of the files from lupus/Revolution pack cause many of my apps not to work
but when i revert back to Win98SE files all is good.These are the files for Windows 98SE
thats works without breakage

EXPLORER.EXE 4.72.3612.1710
Systray.exe 4.10.0.2224
USER.EXE 4.10.0.2233
browseui.dll 6.0.2800.1915
COMDLG32.DLL 4.72.3510.2300
DOCPROP.DLL 5.0.1897.1
FONTEXT.DLL 4.10.0.1704
MYDOCS.DLL 4.72.3510.2300
PLUSTAB.DLL 5.0.1528.1
quartz.dll 6.5.1.907
Shell32.dll 4.72.3812.634
SHSCRAP.DLL 4.0.0.950
IESHWIZ.EXE 4.72.3110.0
USER32.DLL 4.10.0.2233
WEBVW.DLL 5.0.312.0

I'll just say this WinMe files works good but when i install option 3 from 98SE2ME i have the same problem stated above so i think the Win98SE files below will be ok to use imo
just avoid using the files listed below from MDGx quote

If you installed 98SE2ME option 3, that might do this [?], but not sure.
98SE2ME option 3 installs these files from WinME CABs:

In %windir% [usually C:\WINDOWS]:
- Windows Explorer = EXPLORER.EXE 5.50.4134.100
In %windir%\SYSTEM [usually C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM]:
- Common Dialog 32-bit Control = COMDLG32.DLL 5.50.4134.100
- Active IMM Server = DIMM.DLL 5.00.3000.1
- OLE DOCument Properties = DOCPROP.DLL 5.00.2136.1
- OLE DOCument Properties 2 = DOCPROP2.DLL 5.00.2136.1
- Fonts Folder Control = FONTEXT.DLL 4.90.3000
- My DOCuments Folder Control = MYDOCS.DLL 5.50.4134.100
- Map Network Drives/Network Places Wizard = NETPLWIZ.DLL 5.00.2136.1
- Effects Control = PLUSTAB.DLL 5.00.2136.1
- Shell 32-bit Control = SHELL32.DLL 5.50.4134.100
- Shell Scrap Object Handler = SHSCRAP.DLL 5.00.2136.1
- Customize Folder Wizard = IESHWIZ.EXE 5.50.4134.100
- Web View Control = WEBVW.DLL 5.50.4134.7069 from unofficial Q900725 MS05-049 security fix:

All i'm saying is keep a open mind about things i like what you are doing and i would like a better look
for my Win98SE machine but i will not use your update if it breaks programs i have bought with my hard earn money.thats why i don't use option 3 from 98SE2ME because it allows some of my programs not to run
we might not use the same software but does that mean i have to suffer by not getting this wonderful update
because you have no interest in modding Win98SE files.I don't mind the lost, keep up the good work.

Magix Studio V2000
Magix Piano & Keyboard Workshop 2nd Edition
Magix Hip Hop Music Maker
Magix Audio Cleaning Lab 3.0
Pwledit.exe Password Cache List Editor 4.0.0.950

You have to buy the Magix software
Now all these programs works great when i don't install
Revolution Pack, Lupus,Option 3 from 98SE2ME because they all use the same
Explorer.exe Shell32.dll etc.....

I suggest in the future to realize a possible solution to replace icons directly in windows 9x system files.
Vista transformation pack does a similar thing including resource hacker utility and recalling it using some commands.

It's better to use Auto-Patcher or Unofficial SP by Gape to tweak all system files before application of windows renovatio.

Good news..i've finished the first version(step1-the fundation) of my project and i really want some testers.....so here it is. It's archived mode and u need IE6 and unofficial sp2.1a installed on your machine for this to work. To install run 1.bat, after that an inf installer will proceed. Why this rush?? Because i'll be out of town for a few days...so....here it is:

In the future...when i learn more about scripts and other stuff i'll make some icon packs for this project(when i'll finish the entire project,this is only step one). Tango packs, crystal packs, osx...etc.

See u in a few days...... :whistle:

i have installed Renovatio on my localised system. it works - system is starting, and after all i have full one language system. before that i had three languages in one system :) now i have only one language - english.

if somebody do this with localized system he will boot safely, but all directories with links and control panels will be empty. can be fixed manualy.

Skinning engine here is more likely able to crash if i spam too many windows. Also Video Mixing Renderer has vanished from all settings. i cannot view videos using this renderer - probably caused by quarz.dll

Although I don't mind the spartan look of Win98, I'm really impressed by your project. :thumbup
Does your modification work with the localized (in my case Polish) versions of Win98SE?


98se PL (and propably other non-english)

Small problem:
"Clean/delete"
-Menu start /Programs + / Autostart
-Quick launch afther second reboot ;}

-Firefox lost settings, but Opera work fine :)
-Sometimes mix Polish and English language (no problem)


Disturbing:
Exploler "tree is ok", but in all folders every time I must press widok/list = view/list
I fix it by Total Commander ; ] (free commander dont work ;] )

Posted Image

Without Me files ?

In future boot logo ~ Vista?

eh only english version :huh:
tlcmnd work ok


Overall
Good work, go ahead! :thumbup :)
