System Internals Utilities on Win9x

72 posts in this topic

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell from System Internals (SysInternals, Winternals, NTInternals) have been producing infinitely useful freeware administrative utilities for the Windows NT and 9x platforms for many years. :thumbup THANK YOU guys for all that you have done (and continue to do for XP/Vista/7). During the summer of 2006 the company was assimilated by Microsoft and as many of us feared, the Win9x family of utilities is dwindling :angry: . This thread will attempt to audit the entire suite of utilities, their status on the Win9x platform and whatever can be done to restore compatibility. This topic is meant as a tiny supplement to the awesome work in Last-Versions-of-Software- for-Windows-98 by galahs (help yourself to any of this info galahs) and countless other MSFN members.

IMPORTANT! To ensure that this thread remains open I ask that you review the EULA for the free System Internals utilities and please do not violate the MSFN forum rules. Anyway, as the System Internals / Microsoft EULA reads now, there seems to be no legal way to 'reverse engineer' them at all so that would probably make patching them a questionable affair. Perhaps contacting Mark himself would be of some use, if only to get an official blessing or even his direct input. Mark, you are cordially invited to chime in here at any time! Also, considering that System Internals does not maintain any archives of previously released versions (well I cannot find them), the mods will need to decide if linking to them is ok. UPDATE: please see important info from forum moderator below at post #27. In summary, we can discuss the patching of these utilities but NO DISTRIBUTING of files is allowed, patched or unpatched.

NOTES: For the purposes of this discussion Win9x means Win98se, and testing is done on v4.10.2222 *without* the highly regarded KernelEx installed (some limited testing done on WinME also, but does anyone really care? :whistle: Just kidding!). Members might also want to report their specific experiences using the utilities on Win95 to enhance our general knowledge base.

AUDIT UPDATE: 2013-10-29 (previous was 2013-01-18).

Long story short: TWO utilities arrived DOA for Win9x

- Utilities ADDED=1

- Utilities SUBTRACTED=0

- Utilities UPDATED=17

This post now reflects the Suite dated October 25, 2013.

The ZIP distribution now contains 72 executable Windows binaries ...

*** This file has no discernible version, use the date of 2006-11-01 to identify it. Note that the current non-Win9x release of the file does contain a version of 2.0.

BTW, you may have noticed that several of them went belly-up a few years ago ( e.g., BGINFO ), but most seem directly related to the very recent Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 compiler bugs. I expect more of these utilities to stop working as Mark recompiles with VS2008. My testing shows this common denominator: versions: linker 9.0, OS 5.0, file: 0.0, subsystem: 4.0

Also note that although the version 7.x releases of FILEMON and REGMON do run on Win9x, I am aware of some stability issues and minor GUI errors ( toolbar buttons and SAVE AS function ) so, IMHO the 6.x versions are actually more stable. Regardless, I do in fact use the 7.04 versions on Win9x systems successfully.

It should be noted that one of the newer utilities: RAMMAP.EXE requires Vista or higher. This means that both Win9x and WinXP are now victims of Microsoft's latest compilers. If this is the case, we can expect many new apps from here on out to fail as well. ADDED: PSPING.EXE also requires Vista or higher.

Formatting Adjustment: I finally completed switching the FileLists over to the more sensible YYYY-MM-DD date plus 24-hour time format. Previously files were displayed as MM-DD-YY with 12-hour AM/PM in the traditional Win9x COMMAND.COM directory output seen on a typical Win9x computer with the default time format set in the SysTray.

Well, that's all for now, more to come later. Please inform me of any errors, typographic or otherwise.

Would someone tell me why the above post runs off the screen .... I have to scroll back and forth horizontally to read the post. Is this a problem with settings on my computer? I'm running 98se + IE6 (recent new install + AP).

I can read most other threads w/o having to scroll.

Help/advise appreciated. -- willperk

I can confirm. I'm using IE6 + Win98, as well.

Everything works correctly with Firefox 2.

Everything OK on Opera, too. :thumbup

I couldn't help but notice that right after MS bought Sysinternals, many of their utilities became quite a bit larger in size, with no obvious changes in the way they work or their features.

Examples:

Process Explorer

Version 10.04 is 1.37MB

Version 10.21 is 3.45MB

Regmon

Version 7.03 is 417KB

Version 7.04 is 600KB

Filemon

Version 7.03 is 436KB

Version 7.04 is 730KB

I see no real changes in any of these from the last Sysinternals versions to the MS versions, except that the "save as" option of the MS versions of Filemon and Regmon doesn't work on 98. The previous versions do. I really have to wonder just what they changed that nearly doubled their size or even more.

Regarding the EULA, if we work with versions that were released before MS bought them, the old EULA applies, not the new one.

I have copies of all the Sysinternals utilities from before the purchase if anyone needs them.

@ Sfor and jaclaz ..... thank you both for your replies.

I find it strange the malfunction occurs only on certain posts .....

- For the 1st 3 pgs. of the "Latest SFTWR Version", all 60 Posts are readable w/o scrolling.

- On the 1st Page only of the "Last MB - - - - " thread, Post(s) 2,10 & 11 do NOT fit, and require horiz. scrolling.

I guess if I could interpret the "source" code, I might be able to distinguish some commonality there.

I am trying - for the 1st time - Accessibility Options for visual enhancement of fonts and mouse arrows. Perhaps this has something to do with this abnormality.

Sfor - does your confirm mean you get the same display on 98SE + IE6 ?

If I pursue this problem any further, I'll just start a new topic on this forum. I had read some previous posts a few days ago re the Sys-Internals subject, and was interested in following it up. I don't post much, but am a longtime visitor ...... thanks to both of you for helping to keep 98SE alive and functioning.

Probably. Here I've got the same problem also. I run Win 98SE with 98SE2ME and a fully updated IE6SP1. I do think it is related to CODEBOXes, because I've seen it happen elsewhere on these forums, also when CODEBOXes were involved. HTH

Quite strangely, I happened a number of times to experiment, here, or on boot-land or on 911CD, the same problem you describe with my Opera, but in my case, a "reverse" one, it has always been due to "long" lines inside [ code ] [ / code ] tags, changing them to [ codebox ] [ / codebox] tags solved the problem.

@jaclaz: You're right, of course! It's my bad: I wrote CODEBOX, but I was thinking CODE instead. Yet I think you've hit jackpot if all that's required is to change CODE for CODEBOX!!! :yes::thumbup

@CharlotteTheHarlot: Would you please change your CODE tags for CODEBOX on post #1 so that we may see whether jaclaz's solution works? Thanks a lot!

Guys, let me know if you need me to edit anything else in that post. They were and still are CODEBOX (not CODE) tags.

I believe any horizontal problem involving the entire post would be related to that last part which was using a fixed-width Courier font outside of any CODEBOX (the green and red on the MSFN blue). It just looked cooler that way and also preserved the characters lining up vertically. I could just throw that into a CODEBOX which automatically provides the fixed-width font. EDIT: done!

I noted one other difference too: *outside* of a CODEBOX multiple spaces are truncated to one, hence you see creative use of periods to pad the filetimes which do not have leading zeros/digits and filesize differences.

Using Opera 9.51 here. Looks as designed. The only horizontal scrollbars that Opera shows are for those long lines *within* the CODEBOXs.

I am afraid to fire up MSIE to check! Anyway, please let me know what you think is the best way. There is no sense in letting the top post bust the thread for those folks using inferior browsers. :whistle:

EDIT: ... ok, it has been fixed (I hope). Remember to F5 Refresh or delete the cache. Let me know if all is good now. I wanted to fix that fast before someone quoted the whole thing and propogated the error!

P.S. has anyone else noticed a difference in Opera 9.5x vs 9.2x cache behavior? Seems I am getting more stale pages all of a sudden within a thread, and, 'read' topics that look like 'unread' topics on each forum's main page. :wacko:

Your Post #1 still reads as I described in my Post #2.

I did remove all cookies & files via Tools > Temporary Internet Files.

I can read your post #11 w/o any scrolling ..... the same for all posts after your Post #11.

Thanks for your followup and helpful cooperation.

herbalist - Rick,

I'd be interested in having copies of the 3 programs that you mentioned ... what versions are you talking about ... the smaller size versions ... I do not have version 10.04 of Process Explorer and I do not have version 7.03 of Regmon and Filemon. I have version 7.04 ... since I read your post I have been looking on Google for an active download link to these versions and every link seems to be dead or goes to Microsoft for versions 7.04. I'd like to get a copy of that smaller version (10.04) of Process Explorer to try out ... I can probably live with versions 7.04 of Filemon and Regmon unless it would be possible for someone to post an active link or if you have them available for download. thanks ...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Examples:

Process Explorer

Version 10.04 is 1.37MB (would like this one)

Version 10.21 is 3.45MB

Regmon

Version 7.03 is 417KB (would like this one)

Version 7.04 is 600KB

Filemon

Version 7.03 is 436KB (would like this one)

Version 7.04 is 730KB

I see no real changes in any of these from the last Sysinternals versions to the MS versions, except that the "save as" option of the MS versions of Filemon and Regmon doesn't work on 98.

as far as having trouble with reading the top post ... I also have to scroll way to the right to read it. ... using IE 6 and Win 98SE.

thanks,

herbalist - CharlotteTheHarlot,

I was able to get Process Explorer version 10.21 at FileHippo ... I have been using version 11.11 so I guess the last "10" version (v10.21) will be fine.... I will just live with the version 7.04 for FileMon and RegMon ... they seem to work OK with Windows 98SE. I use a program called Memload to see how much resources a program or a particular version uses. Neat little program for Win 98, in case somebody never heard of it. You can test different versions with it to see if there is much of a difference in resources being used.

Keep the information flowing ...
