1,296 posts in this topic

I just thought Id post this for those who want to try it. (I know its been added then taken out again :) )

Windows ME's My Pictures Shimgvw.dll window in 98se.

The following is not included in 98-2-me as some have complained of incompatabilities.

However I have now got it on 2 computers of different configurations.

Select Option 3 in 98-to-me

To Enable copy shimgvw.dll to windows\system\

then type in Run Regsvr32 shimgvw.dll

then type regsvr32 webview.dll

then finaly regsvr32 mydocs.dll

Go to My Pictures and you should now see a nice zoom in/out box in the left side when you select an image.

Trev.

P.S. the 2 other steps get rid of the script error about wiamgr.devices...

With rp7 this wasnt required however with rp9.7 it is.

Unofficial MSE 5.7 5.7.0.18066 + JSCRIPT.DLL 5.7.0.20550 for Windows 98/98 SP1/98 SE/ME [732 KB]:

http://www.mdgx.com/files/SCR579X.EXE

Requires MS IE 5.5 SP2 or newer already installed

FILE:

MSE 5.7:

http://www.mdgx.com/files/SCR579X.EXE

REQUIRED:

Requires MS Internet Explorer (IE) 5.5 SP2:

http://www.mdgx.com/ietoy.htm#IE55

or MS IE 6.0/6.0 SP1:

http://www.mdgx.com/ietoy.htm#6S1

already installed!

Any idea what is this requirement for IE 5.5 or higher? I've just installed with IE5.01SP2 and everything seems normal. (What's the best way to test?)

Joe.

If I had to bet on a single file, that would be shlwapi.dll...

Thanks, Den.

Well, my installed version of 'shlwapi.dll' is 5.00.3314.2100, which is consistent with the version numbering for IE 5.01SP2. SCR579X seemed to have installed fine with this, however, if I do encounter Javascript problems, I'll try extracting the IE 5.5 version and seeing if that makes any difference.

BTW, that link was an interesting "can of worms"! It's a shame, I can't help but feel we are missing some potentially valuable members and are poorer as a result. (The sudden disapperance of LLXX is one example that comes to mind.)

Joe.

What version is newer?

4053

The version number is stored as four 16-bit words, each part of it may have value 0 to 65535. So the lowest version number is 0.0.0.0 and the highest 65535.65535.65535.65535.

Nowadays the version number may use four 32-bit numbers instead of 16-bit numbers, but the logic remains the same.

The new VBVM60.EXE 6.0.9821 is not working (at least) for me.

I had to manually use the VBVM60.INF.

EDIT: BTW, the link More info on the 11-1-2011 Update page is wrong.

You have to use the one from the main Visual Basic (VB) page: More info. ;)

SETUPAPI:

* Unofficial Windows 98/98 SP1/98 SE/ME SETUPAPI.DLL 5.1.2600.2180 Update [442 KB]:

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

This patch breaks NUSB 2.4 and 3.0. With updated file, when I clicked on the NUSB icon in the system tray, it did not respond. When I restored the original setupapi.dll everything worked fine.

Can someone look into this issue and try to find a fix. I would like to add it to the Service Pack?

Try the (presumably) Win2000 version 5.00.2195.1526 (I'm currently using it) or a similar one within the 5.0.xxxx.xxxx range. The XP version (5.1.xxxx.xxxx) may just not work.

EDIT:

Careful though - it does have a lot of dependencies:

KERNEL32.DLL
ADVAPI32.DLL
COMCTL32.DLL
COMDLG32.DLL
GDI32.DLL
LZ32.DLL
MPR.DLL
OLE32.DLL
RPCRT4.DLL
SHELL32.DLL
USER32.DLL
VERSION.DLL
WINSPOOL.DRV
CABINET.DLL
CFGMGR32.DLL

Best if you can test it first on a vanilla 98SE, open it in Dependency Walker and see if there's any missing module/function. If everything's OK, you can include the new version among the first replaced files; otherwise wait until its requirements are updated and only then replace it.

This version is included in 98SE2ME. Its the WinME version.

The WinXP version works great besides the systray icon bug. I have tested this in the past.

hey MDGx. check out the WTL app for creating and patching files at this site:

http://www.codeproject.com/tools/patch.asp

this tool uses the MSPATCHA.DLL file to "patch" existing files (like what the IEUPDATE.EXE file does to those DLL files in IE updates like KB912812, KB905915. etc.). you'll have to login to the CodeProject site to download the WTL patcher. it can also use the MSPATCHC.DLL file to create patches.

IEUPDATE.EXE uses the info from the "_SFX_MANIFEST_" file inside recent IE updates to "patch" many of the DLL files.

Contents of the "_SFX_MANIFEST_" file from IE update KB912812:

--------

[Deltas]

"RTMQFE\browseui.dll" = "browseui.dll._p", browseui.dll

"*._p"

--------

also bundled inside recent IE updates are files with extension "._p" < those are patch files. IEUPDATE along with the MSPATCHA.DLL file patches the original DLL files (those are the RTMGDR editions) with the "._p" files, thus turning them into the RTMQFE editions of the DLL files.

What role do "*. _p" files

As they are generated and used to generate application

If I change the dlls, I must modify these files *. _p

What role do "*. _p" files
QFE vs GDR. Ignore them - AFAICT, they are deltas for the QFE "version" :unsure: . Re-read the quote you gave.

If you edit a DLL and change the internal language for example, I create a new file type. _p

Sure. The deltas are for creating the QFE version. It's a way to save space, as the QFE contain just a bunch of bytes that differ from the GDR, and the deltas simply record which bytes should be changed and how to change them... they are patch patterns.
