Revolutions Pack 9.7

Yes, you could do that. Mine comes from XP-SP3 (v5.1.3102.5660) and jumper's above is even newer according to its version. So it should definitely work for you too.

How do I get the GDI+ to install RP 9.7?

 

Hi,

 

on this page: Revolutions Pack 9 Configuration you will find the old 'RP9 Updates' pack from Tihiy itself

including GDIPLUS.DLL v. 5.1.3102.1360 (xpsp2.040109-1800)

 

You have a newer version on MDGx site: GDIPLUS.DLL 5.1.3102.5581

http://www.mdgx.com/upd98me.php

and http://www.mdgx.com/add.htm#GDI

Last but not least: last version included in the PROBLEMCHYLD's Unofficial Win98SE SP 3.36

is GDIPLUS.DLL 5.2.6002.23386 Windows XP SP3.

But don't know if it will works with Win Me.

Download Page

After unpacking the U98SESP3.EXE file, you will find it in the 'SP3.CAB'

 

HTH

Charles.

I've installed this new version (intended for Vista) in Win98SE, and so far so good.

Thx!

 

BTW your site is full of interesting stuff for legacy Windows  ;) .

Please try on Tmee's server here.

 

Yes, thanks for mirroring it, Tmee!  

And the first link in post #2 on this topic is a direct link that gets you latest v9.7.2.  Just downloaded it successfully (RP9.exe).

I don't know if this was ever discussed, but I chose not to install IE6 so it's at stock IE5. RP9 did warn me that IE6 was highly recommended but I didn't know why. So anyway, I installed it and it seems to work fine regardless except for one thing. I lost the ability to resize my quick launch toolbar. Even uninstalling or going into safe mode does not bring back that ability so now I have a few icons hidden permanently because it exceeded the space alotted for the quick launch bar and I cannot resize it to fix it. Does anyone know how to restore this ability?

 

And no, it doesn't change by rechecking and unchecking lock taskbar.

The IE6 requirement is misleading - it's not IE as 'the browser' that is needed but a few (updated) system files that come with the IE package and cannot (usually) be found/installed otherwise.

I vaguely remembered this issue popped up in the past and stepping on my pride and using the search - Google is banned from my computers - I found one of my replies that seems to be related to the missing chevron issue as reported by jds back then: link

However there may still be something else to tweak/update to get it fixed. Unfortunately I don't know what that is. Installing IE6 (a bare minimum installation may be enough) could fix it.

After uninstalling IE6, restore the registry you saved before installing IE6.
