Hello, I'm Japanese 9x fan. (My english is wrong... )

Well, I have a question about patch/fix.

 

I found that the patch has been created abroad.

But, there isn't fix/patch for Japanese 9x users.

 

So, I think I should create fix/patch "myself".

 

However, I ask a question for that.

 

1. Complete update list doesn't exist?

-> I found http://www.mdgx.com/upd98me.php and http://www.msfn.org/...r-windows-98se/ .

    but these may be obsolete or stopped maintenance.

 

2. how to make "highly‚Äźdeveloped replacement" fix/patch? For example: U891711

 

Thanks.

I have no clue, really.

 

However, I found a cross-reference for Languages here -

http://old.winpack.o...rnat_fixes.html

 

Please note that the one you specified is an UNOFFICIAL one! That means MS did NOT issue it but it was "assembled" by an MSFN (probably) member!

 

Using "web.archive.org" any MS Bulletin (e.g. http://www.microsoft...n/MS05-002.mspx) may be redirected to your language thusly -

http://www.microsoft...n/ms05-002.mspx

See the inserted Language?

Any Download -may- have the following changed (the appended language) e.g. -

&DisplayLang=en

-to-

&DisplayLang=ja

Any KB article -may be changed thusly -

anywhere "en-us" is in the website address just change to "ja-ja"

 

In that particular case (Q891711/KB891711), it specifically states that the Update would have to come from MS Updates. In other words, those listed as downloadable (if they still exist) were obtained (probably) by members and assembled accordingly.

 

Sorry, but that's the best it gets. You're WAY too late to get any help, since many/most downloads have been obliterated from the MS website, as is many/most articles/downloads for anything LESS than Windows Vista. You see, Microsoft is "cleaning house" right now.

 

HTH and, again, Sorry :no:

Oh, I made mistake..

 

Fix/Patch means unofficial patch.

I couldn't find how to make existing fix/patch.

 

For Example: MDGx didn't write how to make his patch.

If the patch is simple, this might work:

 

Compare the patch to the original, then use a hex editor to make the same changes in the Japanese version.

 

Or compare the Japanese version to the original version, then use a resource editor to make the same changes to the patch.
