Posted 16 March 2009 - 08:21 PM
Had same problem on Win98SE. Had KernelEx 4.0RC1 installed first. Then installed RP9. After uninstall RP and KernelEx, then reinstall RP9, was fixed. Then reinstall KernelEx, stayed fixed

If you run into bugs (and uh, installing over RP4 is surely not supported scenario), post me a PM.

Icons of active program and favicons in K-meleon browser were deformed after installed RP9.
New favicons created now doesn't show it
@Thihy: Do you intent to change control panel icons? You might do it as avergh did NT4VU3

So far I haven't had any of those GDI crashes, so fingers crossed. I did install the modded dibeng.dll from your package though, since the crashes used to mention it before.

as an 98SE2ME user myself, dibeng.dll on my system was version 4.90.3000 (from winME cabs), sometime crash happen upon shutdown / restart.
however, since i change it to modded dibeng.dll on Tihiy sites (version 4.10.1998), until now, i experience no crash.
i start using the modded dibeng before RP 9.0.3 was available.

I use win98SE. Found dibeng.dll is version 4.10.1998
I deleted IconCache.dat from my K-meleon directory and installed RP9 once more.
At least now the problem has gone
Tihiy, sorry for misspelling you nick in my previous post

I have, however, a very minor issue to report: I see a flicker, at random intervals, just within the tray area. I'm using a full install of RP9, but not using any skin (i. e. using the "Classic" desktop) and using 16-bit icons, and Clear Type. What I see is as if the refresh were happening too slowly at the tray, so the icon redrawing is perceptible. Sometimes I see two or three flickers in fast succession, then a longer interval without any flicker, then a single flicker, and so it goes... I'm using SYSTRAY.EXE v. 220.127.116.114 with Winjono's mod for fast USB device removal (the one that comes by default in NUSB 3.3). If you want any additional info, or that I perform any test, please PM me. Keep on the great work!
Later addition (in view of the next post):
Video: MSI MS-8817 V1 nVidia GeForce2 MX400 PRO32S (DRIVER: 4.13.01.2942).
Monitor: Philco 190C (19 INCH).

No change in GDI, but USER resources went UP 7% from no RP to after installing RP9!!!
That is so ultimately awesome!
It was the USER resources that I always had a problem with.
Testing so far is all good.
One question: The option Replace default system font with Tahoma...
What should the outcome of this be?
It would appear that more menu and window text is using ClearType...
But there is still some text that is not...
I would guess that in this case, the font is being requested specifically, like MS Sans Serif for example.
Maybe a font translation could take place to replace font requests for raster fonts with similar outline fonts?
RP7 had an option for the Desktop to automatically snap icons to a grid...
Any chance of this being implemented in RP9? (one has to ask...)
A BIG thanks Tihiy for yet another superlative Windows 9x enhancement tool - I LIKE!
BTW, I formulated a fully manual removal of RP7 back to a clean non-RP Windows 98SE.
I successfully performed the delicate operation with no loss of settings or registry roll back and I'm now running RP9!
So that RP7 users can move to RP9, I'll post all the scary details in a new topic shortly.
