I have the same issue as what started this topic, ie; (msfn.org/board/topic/172439-what-to-do-after-installing-windows-98se/).
However, my snag has not been addressed. After Win98SE setup, ver 4.10.2222A, The Terrible task of Updates!
Wanting IE6.0, 2 of 3 diff sources give the same, 5 each, CRC errors.
Also, IE6.0 touted by the link on this page is only a few hundred KB, which means it is a "Install by Web Connect", which I do not have web on my 98se.
Wanting WMP 9.0, I find no workable D/L site to get it.
Wanting DX9, Thte D/L I got from MDGX gives page faults.
Trying to get Autopatcher 2007 gives "File 403", No Permission.
Also, the Mammoth Site MDGX has many links that do not work and the logical trail I find at that site results in going around and around.
Where can I successfuly get the proper updates and in proper order????
If you want IE 6, there are two versions, RTM (the original August 2001), or IE 6 SP1, updated in 2002. You can find both on my Internet Explorer page. I currently have version 4.0-6.0 but may add the oldest versions as well:http://sdfox7.com/ie.htm
(The AOL signed versions of IE 5.5 and IE 6 are smaller downloads--they do a minimal install 10MB -20MB instead of a full install 60MB-90MB, but other than that are identical to the regular versions)
For Windows Media Player 9, I have the exact copy that I downloaded from Microsoft's website, so you shouldn't run into any errors. http://sdfox7.com/win98/MPSetup.exe
VLC 0.8.6 is actually a much better media player and will play many video files that Windows Media Player can't. http://sdfox7.com/win95/vlc086d.exe
(you'll also need to download unicows.exe (http://sdfox7.com/win95/UNICOWS.EXE
), run it and direct the files to be extracted to c:\windows\system) If it asks to overwrite a readme or txt file, click no.
You can download the final Direct X 9 from October 2006 here: http://sdfox7.com/wi...2006_redist.exe
I don't and haven't used AutoPatcher so can't help you there, but I hope the links that I did provide help.
