ALWAYS BACKUP FIRST!

Installation and Semi-slipstreaming Guide for SP

What's new:

* Added MSMOUSE.VXD from Q254660.

* Added "(Remove Only)" to the uninstall string.

* Removed COMCTL32.DLL from the SPUNINST.INF.

* Fixed ERRORLEVEL bug in RUNPOST.BAT.

* Removed ATTRIB.EXE and FIND.COM from the package.

* Fixed a minor bug in the TWEAKUI.HLP.

* Updated boot logo and added shutdown logo.

- Full changelog.

Special thanks to Petr, erpdude8, hp68guser, MDGx, Lilla, Excalibur007.

Known problems:

* Some old audio drivers (like Crystal CS423x) are not compatible with SP 2.x. Please, update your audio drivers, if you have problem.

* Uninstallation needs Windows 98 SE CD-ROM. It also doesn't remove all installed files. It only reverts back half of the installed files with original 98 SE files. So, I don't recommend uninstallation of the pack, if you don't have any serious problem.

Important notes:

* If you installed SP 2.0.1 previously, you don't have to install this version. You can install only Q254660.

* If you want to use only Tihiy's unofficial Q891711 fix, you should uninstall official Q891711 fix from Add/Remove Programs.

* If you want to make a localized version of this pack, you can find DDF (for making CAB files), and SED (for IEXPRESS) files as an attachment in this post. For more information about localization, you can look at Petr's post.

* Unattended installation support is added, but it only installs "Main Updates/Hotfixes" part. For unattended installation, use this command:

sesp202en.exe /q

* If you like this pack and feel like contributing a little something, you can send me some donation via Paypal.

Other works:

* MDGx's 982ME.

* Tihiy's Revolutions Pack.

* Maximus-Decim's 98SE Native USB Drivers (NUSB).

* Petr's 98FE Service Pack.

Gape, who created these new bootlogo's?

I want to contact the author to retrieve original PSD files to translate the "...Shutting down" message

I'll update SP 2.0.2 NL to 2.0.3 NL shortly. I'm including the JVIEW profiler fix as well

some notes:

- you keep shipping ADVPACK.DLL, W95INF16.DLL & W95INF32.DLL with the SP, but as I see it, these files are only needed when packing the SP with iexpress.exe.

- msmouse.vxd is missing in PRESERVE.INF

- I'd also like to customize the shutdownlogo ;)

Yes, but what's the problem?
- Msmouse.vxd is missing in PRESERVE.INF

Thanks for the info. Minor problem.

- I'd also like to customize the shutdownlogo ;)

Excalibur007 (who is a MSFN member) has prepared the logo.

Gape, I don't test English SP cause I use Dutch Windows 98.

When you remove the 98SE SP IO.sys is copied back from Windows CD. However it's necessary to set appropiate file attributes:

spuninst.inf

[AddReg.Hotfixes]
; Set attributes IO.sys
HKLM,Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RenameFiles\IO.SYS,,,%30%
HKLM,Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RenameFiles\IO.SYS,IO.SYS,,"IO.SYS,7"

:hello:

ADVPACK.DLL, W95INF16.DLL + W95INF32.DLL are necessary not only for packing Advanced INF installers with iexpress, but also for installing the files inside such executables.

If any of these 3 files is/are not present [in same directory] when packing any "AdvancedINF=2.x" iexpress self-extracting executable [iEXPRESS /N SEDFILE.SED], it aborts with an error message.

The new 98SE, SP2 + 98SE2ME logos by Excalibur007 are available here [796 KB]:

95LOGOS.TXT has complete details:
