98 FE + 98 SE + ME updates + patches + (hot)fixes

BTW - I found a problem with the directx_aug2006_redist.exe package. When running that under Win98 or WinME I get error message "The directx_aug2006_redist.exe file expects a newer version of Windows. Upgrade your Windows version." I dont get this error when running it under WinXP. I noticed that this DX9.0c Redist pack was created from version 6.0.5482.0 of wextract.exe. maybe that might be the problem.
I have posted step-by-step instructions on how to install DX9c August 2006 Redist:

Apparently there are some candidates for use with Win9x in August MS patches

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/ms06-046.mspx

Hhctrl.ocx 5.2.3790.558 14-Jul-2006 17:32 519,168 Windows2000 SP4

I'd vote for the Windows 2000 version, does anybody know how to test the functionality?

Hlink.dll 5.2.3790.2748 22-Jul-2006 03:38 72,704 Windows2000 SP4

Will this work in Windows 9x environment?

Is anything from new Internet Explorer and Outlook Express updates usable in Windows 9x?

I have tried the new hhctrl.ocx from Win2000 fix on my 98SE computer for a week, and works ok.

I have opened + browsed through a bunch of different CHM files, created mostly for WinXP + 2003.

So I have added this new hhctrl.ocx version to HHUPD.EXE:

http://www.mdgx.com/add.htm#HHU

Just download "Unofficial Windows 98/NT4 SP6a/ME HTML Help Update 1.41 5.2.3790.309".

@MDGx: If you do make an update for 98/ME/NT4 for 922616, there are some required registry ventries to include as well. If you want me to, I can make the updates for you, provided they do work without problem.

I have added new hhctrl.ocx to HHUPD.EXE [unofficial HTML Help 1.41 for 98/NT4/ME]:

http://www.mdgx.com/add.htm#HHU

and included the reg entries from the Win2000 INF.

Thanks.

Hi MDGx,

Regarding 98SE2XP.EXE:

Having running the installer, Explorer opened itself upon reboot at this directory seemingly created by 98SE2XP:

C:\Program\Windows

This directory contained the following archives:

MPVIS.001

WMPBAND.001

WMPNS.001

MPLAYER2.001

WMPLAYER.001

The files they respectively contained had all failed to install. So I extracted the files, gave them their correct extension (they all had no extension) and installed them by hand into the proper directories.

My Program Files directory is:

C:\Program Files

The directory "Program" and its subdirectory "Windows" didn't exist before I installed 98SE2XP.

I have [hopefully ;)] fixed 98SE2XP:

http://www.mdgx.com/98-5.htm#MP9

Please try it again, and let me know if it works ok.

Thanks for your feedback.

About 918899: There is a(nother) problem in urlmon.dll. Microsoft has provided a fix, in KB Article 923762. It includes newer urlmon.dll 6.0.2800.1567. Maybe someone could get it from Microsoft?

the_guy

my version of urlmon is 6.0.2900.2960
I believe MS updated only XP SP1 + 2000 SP4 versions of URLMON.DLL, which do not work properly with 98/ME in my experience.

The last 98/ME urlmon.dll version that works properly with IE 6.0 SP1 on my PC is 6.00.2800.1551 [from official cumulative update MS06-042].

This is my post:

The file I was refering to is BROWSELC.DLL from XP SP2.

I use BROWSEUI.DLL from newest MS security patch for 98SE, which I just posted here:

http://www.msfn.org/board/?showtopic=46581

BROWSEUI.DLL from XP/2003 does not work properly with 9x OSes.

Hope this helps.

This mean deleting large files bug is fixed?
No, not to my knowledge anyway. :(

The only fix I'm aware of is to replace the IE 6.0 SP1 BROWSE*.DLL files with older IE 5.5 SP2 files from newest cumulative update.

Correction:

I have tested IE918899.EXE, and all files work ok with IE 6.0 SP1 on my 98SE setup.

I have added IE918899 here:

Looks good MDGx. Thanks for adding the patches.

On the note of the DXM patches, could you update the version of danim.dll to the versions included in MS06-042. For IE6, the version is 6.3.1.148, while for IE 5.x it's version 6.1.9.729 (last one only in IE 5.01 fix).

the_guy

EDIT: Also, could you remove the IEPEERS.DLL fix for IE6 SP1 on all OS's as it's replaced by MS06-042.

DXM9X.EXE already includes DANIM.DLL 6.03.01.0148 [1.16 MB]:

http://www.mdgx.com/files/DXM9X.EXE

I have removed IE329919.EXE which installs older IEPEERS.DLL 6.0.xxxx.xxxx.

Thanks again.

Best wishes,

Didn't notice that, sorry.

Can you please update dxm9xie5.exe and dxmntie5.exe to include danim.dll from MS06-042 for IE5 on 2000 SP4, as well as dxtrans.dll and maybe dxtmsft.dll from MS06-042 for IE6 on 2000 SP4?

NOPE! still does NOT work under Win2k/XP/2k3.

Delete the following lines from GF.INF file [follow EXACTLY what is written here, MDGx]:

---

[MicrosoftSharedDir]

HKLM,"Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion","MicrosoftSharedDir","","%35353%\%M_S%"

---

also delete the "28740=MicrosoftSharedDir,5" line from the [CDS] section. Then it should work under Win2k/XP/2k3/Vista.

I have noticed when installing FLOPUPD.EXE (under Win95 RTM/SP1), FLOPUPD2.EXE or AMDK6UPD.EXE (under Win95 OSR2.x) Win95 scans for "new" floppy disk drives just like when Win98/ME tries to search for floppy drives during startup [which can make the floppy drive light flash on briefly]. In Win98 & ME, simply uncheck the option "Search for new floppy disk drives each time your computer starts" from the Floppy Drive of the File System dialog box of the System Control panel applet. I've figured out how to turn off the floppy drive scan feature in Win95 after installing FLOPUPD.EXE, FLOPUPD2.EXE or AMDK6UPD.EXE and it involves putting in some registry entries.

Also, Microsoft plans to re-release MS06-042 for 2000 SP4 and XP SP1 to fix the urlmon.dll issue on August 22. I plan on redoing my patch at that time to include the new urlmon.dll.

I have added Unofficial DX9c Full Redist August 2006 [with correct installer] here [27.8 MB]:

http://www.mdgx.com/dx.htm#DX9

Download "Unofficial DX 9.0c Redist Full" [27.8 MB].

thanks MDGx. I have notified Microsoft about the directx_aug2006_redist.exe file not working under Win98/ME. They might post up a new one soon (I hope).

In the meantime, I'll take the unofficial DX9 August 2006 Redist addon for Win98 & ME.

GRPHFLTS.EXE now works under ALL 32bit Windows versions including Win2k, XP & 2k3. Got it right on the fifth try. :thumbup

Hi Sir!

My apologies if I asked the same question. You see it was unintentional & I only tried asking about the same thing before you replied as I thought nobody read my question. I think I posted the same message about the same time. Please know that I was already fine with the 1st answer.

Again, no offense meant.

As for the Win95 SP, I was just hinking it there would be somebody out there still tinkering with me. You see, I have all WinOS installed in my multi-boot setup & another set as virtual drives.

I am using all the OSs to be able to come up with tools for troubleshooting, specifically taking screenshots of OS native tools.

Thanks much again!

-KIKI-

Likewise, has there been a version for any latest unofficial Win95 SP?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again!

-KIKI-

this is the first time someone like KIKI as ever asked for an unofficial Win95 SP. I may consider creating an unofficial Win95 OSR2 URP [update rollup pack] which is close to a service pack but unlike an SP, it will install a bunch of Win95 SR2 fixes without the INFEX dialog box, meaning there will be no option to select what to install. I may get started on this in September and put the 98fe SP project on hold for a few months. The Win95 SR2 URP will only be compatible with versions B and C of Win95 and not versions A and the original version of Win95. There are still a few users out there still using Win95 but I assume they are using Win95 SR2 version B or C.

Great news I've obtained Q923762 now with the

Urlmon.dll 6.00.2800.1567 version and included it in the

unofficial Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer KB918899.

I obtained the fix approximately 5 hours ago but had to test it first and there was no conflict so far.

The installer is now called with _v2 for volume 2 .

English IE60sp1_KB918899_v2_ENU.EXE

German IE60sp1_KB918899_v2_DEU.exe

If someone wants the original hotfix only, write me!
