Service Pack for Windows ME

550 posts in this topic

Hey all,

I have decided to make a service pack for ME. It will be like any unofficial update at MDGx's site, meaning you have to disable sr/sfp. I have a couple of questions:

1. Would anyone be able to have a look at it to test it out?

2. How would I make a silent installer for au like Gape made for the roots update?

This pack is already made, awaiting uploading at rapidshare (to be hopefully uploaded at softpedia and/or majorgeeks). It includes the updates MDGx posted this morning as well.

Comments are appreciated/wanted

Changelog for latest version:

-Included patched shdoclc.dll (buggy .htm files)

-Included patched vgx.dll (VML flaw from MS06-055)

-Rolled back jscript.dll, vbscript.dll and wshom.ocx to version 5.6.0.8832

-fixed qfecheck.exe and 918047un.inf bugs

-Removed metapad. Added unofficial notepad fix.

-Added 920213. Replaces 890046. Does work on Windows ME.

-Added fixes for dialing rules

-Added Q931836

-Added shell32.dll from unofficial shell32.dll fix

-Added 827078/926047. Replaces 314147. Does work on Windows ME.

-Added strmdll.dll from 925398. Replaces wmp 6.4 version.

-Updated rootsupd.exe to unofficial version

-Updated msasn1.dll to version included in 891861 (replaces 835732 version)

-Added riched20.dll from 920816. Replaces 872978 version

-Removed Q329128 (for MDAC 2.5 SP3)

Download links are here (English, Not yet uploaded), here (French, B5v2) - Thanks WebMatze and here (Italian, B7) - Thanks Max_04.

UPDATE 23/07/2006: Might as well put a link into the first post, that way people aren't digging for it. Also added link to french version (thanks WebMatze)

UPDATE 15/08/2006: Added download link for b6 in English.

UPDATE 11/03/2007: Added links/changelog for b8.

Give a link and I'll test that in a QEMU WinME virtual PC. Try to upload on Megaupload or Yousendit instead of RapidShare as it's less of a pain to download from those. Maybe it's a bit early for MajorGeeks and Softpedia, don't you think ?

Please post a link and details. I recommend that you should release the first version as beta.

To make a silent installation, you can easily call a Microsoft update/hotfix like: UPDATE.EXE /Q:A /R:N. Also, you can make your own EXE by a ZIP-to-EXE/CAB-to-EXE program.

@Petr: I only have one of the files you said. I have the same version of cdfs.vxd. All of the others I do not have. If you have them, please email them to me. (pm me for it)

@all: I have the file. It is at YouSendIt.

Please test it as vividly as possible.

Hi the_guy,

I have not tested the pack yet but I have had a quick look at the files. Seems very well done.

I have noted that three updates I have might be missing :

Q263816 RPCLTSCM.DLL 4.71.3400.0

Q269874 RPCRT4.DLL 4.71.3336.0

Q282132 FP4AWEC.DLL 4.0.2.4715

Also an updated WINBOOT.EBD is apparently missing.

Hi the_guy,

I have reviewed shortly your service pack, it looks good, here are my first observations.

I don't use Windows Me so just compared files in sp2 and supp cabs for now.

SP2.CAB:

Some files that are in sesp202 are missing in mesp202 what is the reason?

Q263816 - Direct download

Rpcltscm.dll 4.71.3400.0

Q269874

Rpcrt4.dll 4.71.3336.0

ie55sp2

Sens.dll 5.50.4807.2300

ie60sp1

Rsaenh.dll 5.00.1877.8

xpsp2

RICHED20.DLL 5.30.23.1221

USP10.DLL 1.420.2600.2180

vcredist:

Atl.dll 3.0.9782.0

New updates:

Q270615

Usbmon.dll 4.90.0.3001

Q892211:

Fp4autl.dll 4.0.2.7523

Fp4awec.dll 4.0.2.4715 (the same as in Q282132)

Fpext.msg

Msdaipp.dll 11.0.6715.15

Msdapml.dll 11.0.5510.0

What about Winboot.ebd from Q311561?

Maybe also the following fixes for Windows 98 SE will work on ME:

Q258680

Deskw95.cpl 4.72.3717.300

Powercfg.cpl 5.00.3103.1000

Q245272

EnhTrig.dll 4.10.2224

Q240896

Opengl32.dll 4.1.1381.7035

These files are already on the Windows Me CD-ROM, why to add them to mesp too?

MSJET35.DLL 3.51.3328.0

MSREPL35.DLL 3.51.3225.0

GRPCONV.EXE 5.0.2136.1

What is the reason for not adding the OLE update 4522?

ASYCFILT.DLL 2.40.4522.0

OLEAUT32.DLL 2.40.4522.0

OLEPRO32.DLL 5.0.4522.0

STDOLE2.TLB 2.40.4522.0

I don't know how it is with version 4526 (KB886765), this version has big problems on Windows 98 SE (some IE plugns do not work) but maybe on WinME it could be OK?

Text converters could be probably used from KB887616 (o2k3sp2):

Office 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2)

Html32.cnv 2003.1100.6551

Msconv97.dll 2003.1100.6551

Mswrd832.cnv 2003.1100.6551

and from Security Update for Windows 2000 (KB885836):

Mswrd632.wpc 2004.10.21

Graphics filter can be used from Office File Converter Pack:

Jpegim32.flt 2003.1100.5531

Windows Script 5.6 for Windows 98, Windows Millennium Edition, and Windows NT 4.0

contains different version of dispex.dll

I'm not sure what is the best way how to handle MSVCRT.DLL and MSVCIRT.DLL. Windows ME CD-ROM contains version 6.1.8637.0, the same as Windows 2000. Is it good idea to downgrade from 6.1 to 6.0, i.e. to version 6.0.9782.0? Or would be better just to replace MSVCRT.DLL with 6.1.9844.0 version from W2Ksp4?

SUPP.CAB:

Systray.exe - I think it should be in SP2.CAB, in sesp it is in SUPP.CAB because it is part of Q242975 update that contains also hotplug.dll file that is not present on the Windows 98 SE CD-ROM.

Verinst.exe - I think you could use the smaller and newer one from (3072 bytes, 23-Nov-1998)

Maybe files from VisualBasic6-KB896559-v1-ENU.exe could be added:

Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 Common Controls

Comctl32.ocx 6.00.8106

Mscomctl.ocx 6.01.9786

And also there are some new versions of basic system fonts:

KB835935 (Windows XP SP2)

COMIC.TTF 2.20.0.0

TAHOMA.TTF 3.14.0.0

TAHOMABD.TTF 3.14.0.0

KB889101 (Windows Server 2003 SP1)

ARIAL.TTF 3.0.0.0

ARIALBD.TTF 3.0.0.0

ARIALBI.TTF 2.90.0.0

ARIALI.TTF 2.90.0.0

COUR.TTF 2.90.0.0

COURBD.TTF 2.90.0.0

COURBI.TTF 2.90.0.0

COURI.TTF 2.90.0.0

TIMES.TTF 3.0.0.0

TIMESBD.TTF 3.0.0.0

TIMESBI.TTF 2.90.0.0

TIMESI.TTF 2.90.0.0

VERDANA.TTF 2.43.0.0

VERDANAB.TTF 2.40.0.0

VERDANAI.TTF 2.40.0.0

VERDANAZ.TTF 2.40.0.0

Hi, the_guy,

Another suggestion : You could replace q329414 by MDAC 2.80 or even 2.81. Of course it would make the pack quite a little bit bigger.

Hi Petr,

I use a more recent Riched20.dll : 5.31.23.1218, Rich Text Edit Control, v3.1

I also think MSVCRT.DLL should be updated to version 6.1.9844.0. That's what I am using on my ME system.

Do you know anything about riched32.dll ? Why the size shrinks so much in newer versions :

5.0.1461.82 from the WinME CD is 212,992 bytes with six dependencies and 5.0.2134.1 is only 3,856 bytes with only two dependencies.

I also have MSVCP60.DLL 6.2.3104.0 (2 different ones). (I have four different MSVCP60.DLL 6.0.8972.0)

Does someone know what the best shfolder.dll is ? It's a file I have found to create problems.

I don't know how it is with version 4526 (KB886765), this version has big problems on Windows 98 SE (some IE plugns do not work) but maybe on WinME it could be OK?

No it's not. I can't remember what broke but I did post reports somewhere here. One of the 4526 files only was wrongly behaved for many of us, so MDGx removed that one and replaced it by a 4522 one and then erpdude reported that it was still breaking PC Health (which is removed from my ME system). To the best of my memory. 4522 is OK on ME.

Hi again,

I have tried the installer in a virtual PC. It does crash rundll32 in setupx.dll. There could be a problem in SPUPDATE.INF. Have you tested on a real machine ?

I had similar problem when I was creating fesp201 - it was caused by too long CopyFiles line in [DefaultInstall] section. But SPUPDATE.INF should be handled by advpack.dll and not by setupx.dll, or not?

If you want to use version 3.1 - what about 5.31.23.1224 version from WS2003SP1? And what about Usp10.dll 1.0422.3790.1830 then?

Has anybody tested OLE components from WS2003SP1?

asycfilt.dll 5.2.3790.1830

oleaut32.dll 5.2.3790.1830

olepro32.dll 5.2.3790.1830

stdole2.tlb 5.2.3790.1830

There seems to be no unresolved dependencies.

Just regsvr32.exe 5.2.3790.1830 has unresolved dependencies in kernel32.dll.

SESP contains also upgrade of crypto functions from KB835732 - NT4 version. Windows ME contains some files with higher numbers, so probably KB835732 for Windows 2000 should be used, but...

Windows ME files:

CRYPT32.DLL 5.131.2195.2833 (from SP1)

CRYPTDLG.DLL 5.00.1558.6608 (from Rollup 1)

CRYPTUI.DLL 5.131.2195.5432 (from SP3)

MSASN1.DLL 5.00.2195.6905 (from Rollup 1)

WINTRUST.DLL 5.131.2195.6824 (from Rollup 1)

have fully resolved dependencies. But will they work?

And for completeness IE 6.0SP1

CRYPTDLG.DLL 5.00.1558.4434

SCHANNEL.DLL 4.87.1959.1877/5.00.1877.6

can be used successfully with 98/ME only if using these 3 files:

OLEPRO32.DLL 5.0.4526

STDOLE2.TLB 2.40.4526

together with older OLEAUT32.DLL build 2.40.4522 from Win2000 SP4.

OLE 2.40.4526 [as listed above] for 98/ME is here:

http://www.mdgx.com/add.htm#OLE

File:

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

If ones wishes to install all 4 older 2.40.4522 files:

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

A bit later:

I tried OLE files from Win2003 SP1.

OLEAUT32.DLL, same as 2.40.4526 from Q886765, does *not* work properly.

Older OLEAUT32.DLL 2.40.4522 *must* be used.

The other 3 files seem to work ok.

I put together an installer for this [448 KB]:

http://www.mdgx.com/files/OLEUP2.EXE

Please try it out, and post here any bugs/errors.

Hope this helps.

Hi MDGX,

why not to use Q835732 files? They are used in SE SP at least from 1.6.2 version with no problem - AFAIK. Plus CRYPTUI.DLL.

And the package has TargetWin9xVersion=4.0.0-4.10.9999, so it is not suitable for WinME, what would you suggest here?
