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

Isn't the file version 4.90.3000 ? The file inside the hotfix is 4.90.0.3000 -- is it supposed to be that, or is it supposed to be 4.90.3001?

Yes, soporifc, you're right, at least in part:

If you check the file version with getver.exe, it will report 4.90.0.3000, whereas if you select the file in Windows Explorer, right-click on it and select Properties, you'll find 4.90.0.3001...

Of course, as it loads OK in Windows 98SE, it is the patched version, so Properties is displaying the correct value,

but, at hexadecimal file offset 4717, B8 must be changed to B9, to update also the hexadecimal file version, the one getver.exe reports... ;)

i never thought to check properties--- you're really good with these 'only partially right' situations, i think this is my third with you :thumbup

Hi guys,

I'm back. ;)

I had an unfortunate computer crash a couple of weeks ago, so I had to rebuild my PC from scratch.

I have changed the hex address in DISKTSD.VXD as instructed by dencorso [thanks again ;)], please install again to see if now getver displays the version correctly.

I can't tell because I don't have access to Win98 SE anymore, I'm running XP exclusively for now, my new mobo may [or may not] support 98 SE, so until I get on a computer with 98 SE [or fix my mobo Intel P35 chipset INFs to work with 98 SE], I won't be able to test anything. :(

:hello: MDGx welcome back ... and welcome to my world :D . Ever since i switched to a mobo that didn't support Win98se, i've been relying on Virtual PC 2007 to do all my AP testing. Its sufficient for doing all the code testing, and then the last thing i do is a real world test on my 3rd machine (an old Pentium 3 machine). Virtual Additions works very well which makes access to the test OS very easy. It will also save you lots of time, my dual CPU handles the VM very well and Win98 inside it runs very fast, and i can also do lots of other stuff at the same time.

Oooh goody, a new Java 6 update! :P

I'd been checking regularly but still the Updates Guy bet me to it!

Well, 2008 has been busy with updates for 9x so far!

Windows 7? Bring it on! I know where I'm staying!

MDGx, still holding up Windows 9x in 2008! Man you're good!

RetroOS, don't feel bad that i rebuffed all your advances as to including Java 6 update 4 in AP but as soon as MDGx lists it as a bonafide Win98SE update, wham, its in AP faster than you can say "what would we do without MDGx", its because i'm so used to MDGx being the final word on these things ... then dencorso turned up, and now we've got you as an authority on what works and what doesn't. Yayus! But who do i trust? :lol:

Has anyone tried to edit their MySpace account profile under Win98SE, having Java 6 installed and set as default? I've had trouble seeing some of the applets (color pickers, sliders, etc) as well as CPU usage to 100% (400MHz Pentium II, 256 MB PC133 RAM). I had to uninstall it. Could anyone else confirm (or not) this behavior?

Did you try Update 4?

Nope, that was 6u3 that I had at the time. I'd rather wait for other opinions before I decide what to do, as I'm already after a bad (unrelated) experience yesterday that could've gone VERY wrong and I'm trying to avoid a heart attack. :unsure:

Java 6 Update 4 is working without a hitch in 98SE. :)

Here is the warning text from the install (note the 'for best results we recommend' bit):

Warning: This is not a supported Operating System

Thank you for choosing the Java(TM ) Platform. You may continue with this

installation, but for best results we recommend running on one of the following

operating systems: Windows XP Professional (SP2), Windows XP Home (SP2),

Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000 Professional (SP4+), and Windows Vista.

Hi guys [and gals],

I've been very busy lately, but I managed to compile the English + Italian MS IE 6.0 SP1 updates [files from MS08-010 a.k.a. Q944533/KB944533 for Win2000 SP4 = February 2008 MS Security Update]:

Cool!

I'll check if the latest BROWSEUI.DLL has the same problem with the Windows Me Explorer as the previous version did...

Also, Sun Java 6.0 Update 5 is out. I have not tested it yet though... I'll post the results...

EDIT: KB944533 looks good so far... Java 6.0u5 looks good so far...

EDIT2: It's been 12 days and all is good! KB944533 must be the best IE6 SP1 update pack that MS have released.

No problems. Not a sausage. Zilch. Java 6u5 is just as stable.

Sweet as!

Thanks for posting. The JEMMEX dos utils make me very happy. I might have done things wrong in the past with others, but this is the first UDMA manager that works on my VIA chipset/mainboard. Backing up my Windows partition now takes 14 minutes instead of 25!

RetroOS, Microsoft made the official KB944533 IE6 SP1 update for Win2000 SP4 systems only. The unofficial KB944533 IE6 SP1 update for Win98/ME is made by someone else other than MS.

Bad news about KB941029 msvbvm60.dll 6.00.9802 hotfix. It's no longer available, but the good news is that version 6.00.9802 of the msvbvm60.dll file IS included in WinVista SP1 and WinXP SP3. I've obtained this newer file from the XP SP3 RC2 pack. Let me know if anybody wants version 6.0.98.02 of the msvbvm60.dll file.

Note to MDGx: I've released version 2.50 of the unofficial Win98 FE service pack almost 2 weeks ago:

Unofficial Win98 FE SP 2.50 Full Edition-

Unofficial Win98 FE SP 2.50 Lite Edition-

AND I have just re-posted my Win98 & ME Updates page.
