Recommended Posts

OE Cumulative Security Update KB978542 included in MDIE6CU3.3 released today.

See his thread for further details.

Thanks, that's good to know.

It must be OK in that case!

It's here BTW.

Slightly off-topic, but I thought that anyone subscribed to this thread might be interested to know that the files from the just issued KB978542 security patch for Outlook Express SP3 on Windows 2000 seem to work fine on Windows 98SE.

The patch of OE6 SP1 on 2000 works on 98se.

Besides, blackwingcat released OE6 SP3 for 2000, and it works on 98se.

I updated the 17 files from KB978542 (excluding iecustom.dll) and Outlook Express 6.0 seems to work fine.

I did replace iecustom.dll on my Windows 98 system with the new version and it seemed to have no ill effects.

I assume that MD's patch does that too.

No it doesn't include iecustom.dll. 

Having said that I don't have that at all, in what directory do you have iecustom.dll?

Ah, my apologies!

I thought I had patched that file, but when I checked it's only on my XP installation. I think I was confusing it with inetcomm.dll!

:blushing:

iecustom.dll seems to be some sort of setup file, related to IE8 in my case, although an IE6 version of it does seem to be included in the MS patch.

It's almost certainly a file used just by the patch installation process as it isn't actually referenced in the inf file for the patch.

Sorry for the confusion!

With the release of IE cumulative update KB2183461, which is available for IE6 under Windows XP here, is it likely that its files will work on Windows 98 IE6 SP1?

Is it only for IE6 SP2? It doesn't actually say that.

Now that support for Windows 2000 has ended, I assumed that support for IE6 SP1 had also ended.

It *is* for IE6SP2 and up only. The reason that that is not spelt up is that MS considers IE6SP2 the only valid IE6, for some time already. When they meant IE6SP1, they've always said it in full. It's over. I'm sorry!

The MS page says that the update is intended for Windows XP SP3.

That implies that it is meant only for MS IE 6.0 SP3 installed by XP SP3 service pack.

Because all other older SPs have been phased out, MS doesn't make fixes for those XP editions anymore.

And BTW, files included in SP3 fixes are not compatible with MS IE 6.0 SP1 [98/98SE/ME/2000/XP RTM/XP SP1/XP SP1a/2003 RTM] or MS IE 6.0 SP2 [XP SP2].

HTH

Thanks Den and MD.

I thought that was probably the case.

I'd better closely guard the copy of KB982381 I saved, just in case it's removed in the future.

I assume this contains the very last files for IE6 SP1, and therefore for Windows 98 (and 2000).

Is anybody feeling adventurous enough to try WildBill's unofficial KB2360131 files on Win9x/ME?

If they work, and I bet they will, it's the way to keep more up-to-date...

I intend to do so myself, but I won't be able to do so right away. :(

Working fine here on 98SE!

:thumbup

There seem to be only four files in this update -

BROWSEUI.DLL

MSHTML.DLL

MSHTMLED.DLL

SHDOCVW.DLL

They are all later versions than those found in KB982381, except for MSHTMLED.DLL.

That file was never included in any of the IE6 SP1 Cumulative Updates that I hacked over to Windows 98 from Windows 2000 before support was ended.

Also, the version I already had is dated 24th March 2005, and is version 6.0.2800.1501.

The "new" version is dated 31st October 2010, but is version 6.0.2800.1107, which appears to be an earlier version of the file!

I am puzzled.......

:wacko:
