(lite version) 27.6Mb:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3OZ6BFG8

-fixed some minor install problems with the SP

Starting with version 1.01 of the SP, the OSR2 SP deletes older OSR2 SP QFECheck registry entries from previous versions of the OSR2 SP when installing over a previous version.

Version 1.04 is probably the last release of the 1.0x series of the SP

If you have any questions, comments, problems with the OSR2 SP, send me PM (personal message) or email.

that's just one of the addons not included in the lite edition of the SP [it has DirectX 8.0a]. another difference is the version of Windows Media Player included. The full version has WMP 6.4 while the lite version has WMP 6.0 (or is it WMP 5.2?) which does not depend on certain IE files.

also the full version installs Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.5 SP3; some third party apps depend on some of the files from MDAC

HUH? why not switch to 98SE? Any pc that runs 95 can run 98SE right? Or even an nLited XP SP3?

Because Win98SE has IE integrated in its shell, making it unpleasant to work with for some (like me).

As for an nLited WinXP SP3, that thing will crawl on older computers.

HUH? why not switch to 98SE? Any pc that runs 95 can run 98SE right? Or even an nLited XP SP3?

Well, not actually. As I know Win98 SE requires 16 Mb RAM, and Win95 OSR requires 8 Mb (original, not OSR version required 4 Mb, but it was hard to install it, and it was extremely slow on such PCs, my friend tried to install it on 386 with 4 MB). And I have experience of running Win98 on 16 MB RAM. It is not so bad, but 16 MB memory turns the multitasking system to singletasking :). I wanted to use Win95, but had a bad distributive, which refused to run. So, I had to install and use Win98.

But actually, you are quite right, Win98 has all the good sides of Win95 and does not have many of its bugs. I don't understand people, still using Win95 except for licensing issue or severe hardware limitation. In this case I don't think they need this update. But I know at least one man, using Windows 95 on not so old notebook just because he likes it.

As for nLited XP SP3, it has much bigger requirements than Win98.

You are right, sorry. I've read your post, but forgot about it when was writing the answer.
But anyway, why not to use Win98 without IE and with Win95 shell? There is a 98lite app which do this. Or you may google Mindows and Nano98.

Because using the Win95 shell with Win98 opens a whole other can of worms.

I installed the previous version on OSR2. After it was done I get a box every boot that windows is setting up the following items, but there's nothing listed.

Of course I installed it the day before 1.02 was released! :P So now I uninstalled 1.01, rebooted and installed 1.02. That popup is still there.

Another issue that's cropped up is Windows Explorer, and ONLY Windows Explorer, when maximized, goes partly off-screen to the lower-right. I don't know exactly when that started because I didn't maximize Explorer until after installing this service pack.

Yet another oddity is the Display Properties box is quite a bit wider than it should be, with extra empty space on its right side.

Looks like I need to reinstall from scratch on this Compaq Armada 7380DMT laptop.

-added ANSI editions of the ATL70.DLL, MFC70.DLL, MSVCP70.DLL & MSVCR70.DLL files

What do you mean by "ANSI editions" of these files? I know that only for ATL7x.dll there are ANSI editions not for other. If you want to get latest versions, you can take it from my Unofficial Visual C++ 7.x SP1 Redistribution Packs which i have updated several days ago.

I setup osr2 on VirtualPC 2007 then after installing the 1.02 version of this pack it would no longer connect to the net, couldn't get a DHCP assigned IP from the host, which is Vista Ultimate. Without the pack it works fine with IE 5.5 SP2 and Opera 9.64.

hmm, are you dual-booting Win95 and Vista? also, what type of internet connection are you using?
(best to send me email or PM, bizzybody, if you want to help more quickly as I mentioned at the beginning of this topic)

Version 1.03 released. See first post on this updated release.

So far, MDGx has not posted version 1.02 of the OSR2 SP on his web site. He may as well post up version 1.03 instead.

Am doing various things, Got Vista Ultimate on a laptop, connected to the net via a wireless connection to an Actiontec router that nothing may be changed on.

Router's IP is 192.168.0.1

Running Windows 95b on Virtual PC 2007 on the Vista laptop.

Also running Windows 95b on a Compaq Armada 7380DMT connected to the Vista laptop's ethernet port through a 10/100 switch.

I *had* things working where I could be running VPC with a drive on the Compaq mapped and drag files directly from Vista and drop them *through* Virtual PC to the Compaq. Hooray and spiffy etc. Take that Vista-refusing-to-copy-anything-toWin95-over-network!

But something had screwed up how Windows Explorer on the Compaq, ONLY Windows Explorer, would maximize, and the Display Properties window had extra space on the right side. So I nuked and paved it, making sure NOT to install the old DirectX drivers I'm pretty certain caused those problems. If HP is going to take things off their site for old stuff, WTH don't they remove the *obsolete* software like drivers for DirectX prior to version 8?

I don't know if I'll install version 1.02 of the service pack on the Compaq. It's running fine and I have all the software it'll need burned to a CD-R.

I also found that the trick of editing the iesetup.cif (changing the UIVISIBLE=0 to 1) to force the IE5.5 installer to install the IE4 Desktop Update doesn't work. I checked the box and all I got out of it was a non-functional Start Menu, then I had to uninstall IE5.5 then install IE4 then IE5.5 to get the left pane back in Explorer. Might have something to do with it being a pre-hacked OEM copy. Installed from the options/cabs folder I saved, it creates a code exactly like the no-key install hack.

Haven't worked with Win95 in almost a decade, bringing back memories of all the *fun* things about it...
