the final releases of the Win98fe service pack v2.58 will be delayed until at least sometime in August 2012 as I'm currently working on and testing out some unofficial patches for Win98se, 2000 & ME that I recently made and I won't be discussing about these "unofficial" patches in these forums.

please wait a while longer 'til August for the final releases.

How selfish of you. What if others could use those patches to help their system.

I guess we are all known for something.

relax, PROBLEMCHYLD. it's only a minor thing. no big deal...really.

once things settle down in my heck of the woods, I'll finalize the unofficial win98fe SP in August.

(whoa, Microsoft is supposed to finalize or RTM Windows 8 in early August).

I think I somewhat mis-spoke about this back then. I really meant to say that I won't be discussing about these "unofficial" patches in these forums until after I release win98fe SP 2.58 final (doh!) :blushing:

my bad.

Ok :w00t: I have added Microsoft Management Console 1.2 to SP 3.4

cool! the final release of 98FE SP 2.58 final is nearly ready. i'll need several days to test it on a win98fe computer. it'll be released sometime between Aug. 15 to Aug. 18 so just wait for an official announcment in this thread.

I'm feeling a little better now since I caught a minor headache this past weekend.

I've now posted links to the final release of the 98fe SP 2.58. see my first post on this topic.

I am planning to make a 3.0 release of the 98 FE/Gold service pack sometime in early 2013.

erpdude8,

Is there a way to get a list of what's in the SP 2.58, before downloading? I have a fresh install of Win98FE and would like to apply to it all (and only) official MS updates through July 2006. At some point later, then I might look into upgrading it with newer files.

Thank you!

Which variant is more stable and most updated?

Win 98SE + SESP 3.0 beta 4

or

Win 98FE + UFESP 2.58

Or there is no differences?

Thanks in advance

more add-ons in the full edition (ex. DirectX, WMI, etc.) than in the lite edition.

@ erpdude8

 

If you register HNETWIZ.DLL from Internet Connection Sharing aka ICS from (WinXP) you'll get this

The file ATL.DLL (3.0.3794.0 - KB973507 for Win2k - it's an ANSI version) was mentioned in the changelog section of post #1 of this thread.

I am currently using version 3.00.8449 (73,785 bytes, Aug 29/2002) on my win98se system. Interestingly, I have another ATL.DLL also claiming to be 3.00.8449 (58,938 bytes, Feb 5 / 2002) that seems to be on the distribution CD of Norton System Works 2002. I also have another version (3.00.9782, 90,169 bytes, Feb 16 / 2004) - not sure where I got it.

How do any of these files compare with ATL.DLL version 3.0.3794.0 contained within Unofficial Win98 FE SP version 2.58?

A dot, decimal, period or whatever tag you give it makes a difference in higher or lower versions. It's how one is able to distinguish. Your version has two decimal while 2000 has three. Also you can check the pe timestamp. Atl.dll is needed to Microsoft Management Console.

I just downloaded Windows2000-KB973507-x86-ENU.EXE from Microsoft. It contains ATL.DLL with this file information:

Version: 3.00.9794

Description: ATL Module for Windows (ANSI)

Product Version: 6.00.9794

File Size: 90,164 bytes

Date: Aug 5 / 2009

Is this the same file that is mentioned in the changelog for Unofficial Win98 FE SP version 2.58 as 3.0.3794.0 (KB973507 for Win2k - it's an ANSI version) ?

Well, if you'd have downlaoded the SP and compared to what you downloaded (really didn't have to), you'd see that it's a typo.

Yes, that's the one. I'm looking at both of them now.

 

You know, you could have done what I just did instead of repeatedly asking. :w00t:
