I decided to make this thread for it seems that UPXing is a new field of compatibility for 9x. KernelEx (Kex stubs) seems to not allow certain new versions of programs that would normally run to work, or some that wouldn't run to begin with. (Vlc for example) To start of the list I will post what Apps we know that will work.
More info about it starts on another thread, with this post by loblo.
All credit goes to loblo and jumper for finding, and figuring out why this trick works.
Just to clarify, both KernelEx (and sometimes KexStubs too) and UPXing are mandatory for any of those programs to run.
LAST = Last version of software to work on 9x(Windows Me/98se)
ONGD = Newest version of software still works on 9x (after UPXing of course )
