What about OpenList, TDIMon, VCMon and VxdMon? :whistle:

:hello:

They are not distributed in the Suite (nor do they appear on the All Utilitites page). The top post dates to the fall of 2008 when VS2008 was being used to recompile the utilities and they began to fail on Win9x.

If you can create a list of the missing utilities from the earlier days I will dig them up from my own archives and others, and write a little section about them. I had meant to do this eventually. Thanks for reminding me.

Thanks for doing the work of keeping track of this, it saves me (and I'm sure others) lots of time!

Look forward to you integrating more utilities into the list as mentioned above.

Over on the RegCompact for Win9x I have noted a possible bug in Process Explorer which I don't recall seeing before. Perhaps some others might try to reproduce it?

You will need to also have IrfanView and RegCompact present with the former, or, the former *and* the latter already running to experience the bug.

These were the result of my testing ...

; ProcExp version that never crashed ...

2005-08-22 - 13:29 ... 1,238,544 ... Procexp.exe v09.25

; ProcExp versions that crashed at launch when both IrfanView and RegCompact were already open ...

2006-02-09 - 13:53 ... 1,443,392 ... Procexp.exe v10.04

2006-02-22 - 15:31 ... 1,455,680 ... Procexp.exe v10.06

2006-05-10 - 16:28 ... 3,266,112 ... Procexp.exe v10.10

2006-05-11 - 10:38 ... 3,266,112 ... Procexp.exe v10.11

2006-07-12 - 12:59 ... 3,278,400 ... Procexp.exe v10.20

2006-11-01 - 14:07 ... 3,623,736 ... Procexp.exe v10.21

; ProcExp versions that crashed at launch when IrfanView was already open ...

2007-09-01 - 08:16 ... 3,585,408 ... Procexp.exe v11.00

2007-09-09 - 12:11 ... 3,589,160 ... Procexp.exe v11.01

2007-09-14 - 13:29 ... 3,589,160 ... Procexp.exe v11.02

2007-10-25 - 16:12 ... 3,609,640 ... Procexp.exe v11.03

2007-11-05 - 07:54 ... 3,564,584 ... Procexp.exe v11.04

2008-02-26 - 10:49 ... 3,654,696 ... Procexp.exe v11.10

2008-02-27 - 13:05 ... 3,654,696 ... Procexp.exe v11.11

So in other words, with just IrfanView running and then launching ProcExp v11.0 to 11.11 the bug occurs and ProcExp crashes.

For ProcExp versions 10.04 to 10.21 both IrfanView and RegCompact needed to be open to cause the crash. There may be more complex combinations that cause this crash as well.

Win98SE.

The file says 10.01 in properies aswell, anyway the link is here : http://tiido.rocketcat.info/Fileden/Process%20Explorer.exe

Okay thanks! Interesting because that version I cannot locate anywhere. It nearly matches my 10.04, same size, but dated one day earlier.

So what is the skin you got there on Win9x? Looks like a cross between Royale Noir and Metallic Shades :thumbup

So what is the skin you got there on Win9x? Looks like a cross between Royale Noir and Metallic Shades :thumbup

It is "Watercolor Emico Ergo Blue (Large Taskbar)" by Gelosea, with a small edit to make start menu button match taskbar height. Comes with Revolutions Pack 9

I did not experience any crashing in either scenario when starting ProcExp where IrfanView and RegCompact were already open or where IrfanView was already open.

Version tested:

RegCompact dated 2000-12-01

IrfanView 4.28

ProcExp 11.11

Win98SE.
FWIW, 11.13 seems to work OK with these two apps together, with KernelEx.

Does everyone confirm Win98se v4.10.2222 without KernelEx?

That's what I used. Fresh after reboots. No other programs running. The only other task listed was the Realtek audio.

UPDATE TO POST #1

The top post has been re-written to describe the current ZIP package suite dated: 2013-01-11.

Win9x fans will notice no functional changes among the very few remaining compatible utilities distributed in the Suite.

Hello guys. I'm a computer tech, and a friend of mine went to me today to ask me to revive an old Win98se computer. I told him i would get a look at it, but I greatly lack of tools to do maintenance of this old operating system. Would someone mind to send me a copy of the last pack of system internals utilities which are working on Win98 ?

And if this person can and accept to send me such a thing, is that ok if i share it around me, for these tools to remain avalaible in multiple places ?

Cheers,

Nexes

@Nexes

MIcrosoft acquired Sysinternals on July 18, 2006, you ONLY *need* previous versions of the Sysinternals utilities to "fix" a Windows 9x system, most of them are available through the Wayback Machine:

 https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.sysinternals.com/

 

Which you will probably need to use anyway as most of the times the relevant page contains needed or interesting info.

 

Each specific utility (before the MS takeover) may (or may not) be redistributable, example (readme.txt for PortMon9x):

 

...

Terms of Use

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

This software is provided "as is", without any guarantee made

as to its suitability or fitness for any particular use. It may

contain bugs, so use of this tool is at your own risk. We take

no responsilbity for any damage that may unintentionally be caused

through its use.

You may distribute this program freely in its original unaltered

form. However, you may not distribute this program with or as

part of a commercial release, or within a for-profit organization

without the express written consent of Mark Russinovich.

Thank you Jaclaz for this useful hint,

I didn't know that the wayback machine also stored zip archives.
That will greatly help me with the first post of this thread to get what I need.

I already went a few times on this forum to get some patches and tips for Win9x systems, the job of the community to "maintain" those OSes despite Microsoft "policy" is simply amazing.
