My bad, guys, I forgot to upload the new ME version of the patch.
Here it is... [110 KB]:http://www.mdgx.com/files/U891711.EXE
It should install on Windows ME without any problems, even if official MS05-002 patch was already installed.
Please try it out, should fix the same security vulnerability as MS05-002 [but using better patching technique], under Windows 98 (FE), 98 SE and ME.
I believe a decent proof of concept demo for LOADIMAGE icon [.ANI file] is found here:http://www.xfocus.net/flashsky/icoExp/
Please try this demo first without official MS05-002 or U891711 installed.
Then install MS05-002 first, try the demo again.
Then uninstall MS05-002 and then install U891711, and try the demo again.
To install U891711 on top of MS05-002, it is not necessary to uninstall MS05-002 first, U891711 should overwrite the MS05-002 files upon installation.
Hope this helps.
I was playing a local wav file. I don't use Media player for online (much if ever)
Did you notice this when trying to play online or offline?
Your 98SEMP10 automated install was applied some time ago and I was reporting this as it was the first time I'd seen this problem having installed this unofficial 891711 patch
I assumed this was related to installing 98SEMP10 [WMP10 files from WinXP]
Any ideas ?
I don't think that WMP generic [not found] image placeholders issue was related to either 98SEMP10 or U891711.
I still blame it on server error, lag or timeout.
What you experienced, could have also been poor quality of the internet connection [at the time] due to problems at your ISP's end.
Hop this helps.
