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

I have been dutiful, MDGx. ;) I have an issue to report concerning a DLL from the RICHED9X.EXE update. Using Miranda (the current ANSI version - 0.7.1), I get the following message when I click on a contact from my contacts list (in order to open a message window):

The specified module could not be found (USP10.dll)

The message appears only on the first occasion that I do this - not subsequently. The message window opens as normal after I dismiss the message, and I can continue without problem (at least I haven't discovered a problem yet).

try using an older version of the usp10.dll file, bristols. And store a copy of the usp10.dll in the Miranda program's folder to ensure full compatibility. the updated riched9x.exe patch installs the usp10.dll file featured from WinServ2003 SP2.

Note to MDGx: The Exception Error Cmapieng.vxd fix for WinME is no longer available from the NAI web site. MS article 275003 still mentions the "broken" download link but I have removed references to the cmapieng.vxd patch from my Win98/ME updates page.

also, I have revised the unofficial WMP9 update rollup pack for Win98se/ME and made an unofficial WMP9 update rollup pack for Win2k; both include the recent wmp.dll ms07-047 security fix. Let me know if you need them.

@ bristols: which version of usp10.dll do you have installed? I have 1.0471.4030.0, together with riched20.dll 5.30.23.1221 (I know about .1228 but dont' have it around) - the other richedit versions don't work correctly with SpellChecker in Miranda - and I have no such problem. Also, please specify which messaging plug-in you're using (SRMM, Scriver, tabSRMM, nConvers), and if that error comes up with any of the aforementioned (switch them in Options > Plugins, if you got them installed; make sure you install the appropriate, compatible versions).

I hope to keep you guys busy for the next few days testing all those updates. ;)

The usp10.dll 1.0626.5756.0 (vista_rtm.061008-1400) file IS buggy! I have encountered the same error while running ms word 2000, and ms powerpoint viewer 2003 refuses to start because of the buggy usp10.dll file. I have downgraded to an older version, 1.0420.2600.2180 (xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158) and everything works fine now. Please update your RICHED9X.EXE package to fix these bugs. I love your work MDgx, without you, windows 9x would be completely useless.

Hi Drugwash, apologies if I was too vague.

The version of USP10.DLL that (for me) causes Miranda problems is 1.0626.5756.0 (from the latest revision of MDGx's RICHED9X.EXE, as noted by blackwire in the post above). Like blackwire, I reverted to version 1.0420.2600.2180, which has cleared up the problem.

As for plugins, I have added none. I'm using a vanilla install (being still a Miranda newbie).

Yep, USP10.DLL version 1.0422.3790.3959 seems to work fine with Miranda. Thanks MDGx for the revision.

not just buggy, blackwire. Usp10.dll version 1.0626.5756.0 from Vista is more likely incompatible with Win9x/ME/NT4 OSes and users should revert to using v1.04x of usp10.dll

@erpdude8: I wouldn't mind looking at those.

sure thing, the_guy. I've uploaded the revised unofficial WMP9 URPs for Win98se/ME and Win2k at the Usaupload site; email me for the links but I'm only going to keep the URPs up at USAUpload until this Friday. Hopefully MDGx has gotten my message last week about the updated WMP9 URPs and has gotten them.

Many of us are using CDVSD.VXD v. 4.10.0.2224, kindly posted by ElectricString, since Xeno86 found out that CDVSD.VXD v. 4.10.0.2226 is buggy, as reported here. CDVSD.VXD v. 4.10.0.2225 has not surfaced up to know, so it is unavailable for testing. The version history I presented above shows that Win ME CDVSD.VXD v 4.90.0.3002 is equivalent to Win 98SE CDVSD.VXD v 4.10.0.2226. This makes Win ME CDVSD.VXD v 4.90.0.3003 the most updated version of that VXD, up to the present, thus presumably incorporating all the previous hotfixes. Yet, unpatched Win ME CDVSD.VXD cannot run under Win 98SE. But the selfsame version patch that I applied to USB FDD DiskTSD.VxD 4.90.0.3000 Patch, allows Win ME CDVSD.VXD v 4.90.0.3003 to run flawlessy under Win 98SE. I have been using it since Oct 31st in my system, without any problem, so I can affirm it works OK and has not the bug Xeno86 found on v. 4.10.0.2226. So here I offer you the patched version of Win ME CDVSD.VXD v 4.90.0.3003, renumbered as 4.90.0.3004 to reflect the fact it has been patched and runs OK under Win 98SE and FE (but not anymore under Win ME!).

:w00t: Download-link: CDVSD.VXD v. 4.90.0.3004 for Win 98 SE (and FE) or at uploaded to :yes:

As always, the standard disclaimer applies: It works great for me, but YMMV and I can guarantee nothing whatsoever about this patch, and about the use you make of it. By deciding to use it you fully accept that anything you do is of YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY... Moreover, modding files voids the EULA, of course. You have been warned.

Please try a real host, like http://uploaded.to/ or something. Maybe that way I could download it too. Thank you.

[EDIT]

Sorry, my IE seems to be FUBAR - I can't seem to download from that host either, although it used to work. Something is really FU here, and I need to fix it a.s.a.p. But I really dunno what to do first, it's driving me crazy. :(

Hi, erpdude8!

As you already know, the files for Win 98SE from Q329128 have recently surfaced in SESP30-alpha-1 and remain present in alpha-2. They are NDIS.VXD 4.10.0.2226; PPPMAC.VXD 4.10.0.2223 and VIP.386 4.10.0.2228, of course. But Q329128 also carries fixes for Win 98FE and ME. Yet, both in his anouncement and in the spupdate.inf included in SESP30-alpha-1, Gape refers to those files as if they were part of Q301453. And while both MSKB articles pertain to "multicast packets that have a TTL setting of 0 (zero)", Q301453 is for Win 2k/XP, while Q329128 is the correct article number for Win 9x/ME, and only Q329128 contains the above mentioned files. It is a fact that Q301453 points to Q329128 and vice-versa, but I don't see the point in referring to it in such a roundabout way. :whistle: It is great that those files are now available, after everybody sought them for so long. And VIP.386 4.10.0.2228 IS better than 4.10.0.2227, for in some way the system becomes less resouce-hungry when 2228 is installed. I can't help but wonder whether Gape has the complete Q329128 or if he just found its files for Win 98SE somewhere. Gape, :hello: would you please be so kind as to enlighten us? You rock, both of you! Without your continued endeavours, our computing experience would be so much the poorer.

Keep on the good work! :thumbup Win 9x/ME forever!

Well, dencorso, read this.

BREAKING NEWS about the latest NDIS.VXD, PPPMAC.VXD & VIP.386 files for BOTH Win98 FE and Win98 SE: I have obtained the actual Q301453 hotfix for Win98 from MS support! Unbelievable!!! :thumbup

The files from the Q301453 Win98 hotfix are the same versions as the ones listed in Q329128. Q329128 is not available from MS BUT Q301453 for Win98 IS available as I've just emailed MS for it. yay! :hello:

Great news, erpdude8! :thumbup And mystery solved:

Gape wasn't referring to Q329128 in a roundabout way after all!

There really IS a Q301453 Win98 FE and SE hotfix!!!

So, then, that's whence Gape got those files, after all, just as he said!!!

Gape, :hello: I tend you my apologies.

Say, erpdude8, have you already asked for the Win ME version of Q301453, or should I?
