Service Pack for Windows ME

550 posts in this topic

I have a question if anyone can answer it.

Of the files/updates that you cannot "directly" download from Microsoft.

Is there anything wrong posting how to obtain those files/updates presuming know one else knows?

This applies for Win98 and WinME. Not sure about 95 but I imagine it would.

Thanks in advance.

So I don't know which specifically they would be but does your list include those that (I believe) currently can only up obtained through the Windows Update site and not the Windows Update Catalog or from the corporate downloads page?

To be clear if I applied all the ME updates from your site then upon browseing to the Window Update site to your knowledge it would display that I have no updates (unless they have a newer driver than I have of course)?

Also this is to include more than the Critical Updates and Service Packs but also the Recommended Updates?

Thanks in advance and also for the quick response. :D

My pages should have all updates I am aware of, for all M$ OSes: DOS 6/7/8, Windows 3.1, WfWG 3.1x, Windows 95, 95a OSR1, 95B/95C OSR 2.x, 98, 98 SP1, 98 SE, ME, NT4, 2000, XP + 2003.

That includes those from WU [Windows Update], those from M$ servers [not necessarily available on WU], those issued by M$ but not available on M$ servers [so-called "hotfixes"], and also unofficial ones, made by concerned users from M$ files that were intended for other Oses or from modified older versions/builds, but which were tested to make sure they work OK with 9x/ME/NT4/etc.

Every update/patch/fix/(hot)fix/etc specifies the OS(es) it is/are meant to install on, usually enumerates all files that would be installed, most of the time their versions/builds, and most of the time what bug(s) is/are fixed by installing respective update(s).

All updates have links to their original developer web pages, like MSKB articles or MS0X-0XX Security Bulletins.

If any special steps are needed to install a particular update, you will find them detailed step-by-step, usually in bold characters.

And if you hold your mouse cursor over the "Direct Download" or file name link, you will see the exact location of the file , and the file name + extension.

That is if you are using MS IE 4/5/6, and have disabled the "Show friendly URLs" box in MS IE Properties -> Advanced tab. ;)

Did that as soon as you posted that the other version didn't work.

PS: I'm adding the esdi_506.pdr fix. Let me know if you don't want it in (@all)

add it. I'll add the 98fe version of the 48bit LBA esdi_506.pdr fix onto the next beta of 98fe SP.

Hey guys.

The next version of the SP is almost ready. As well as the changelogs I posted recently (look at the last one), I am planning on including WMP 6.4. However, I know that a lot of files have been updated to the 7.x line, and others are just newer than what I could download.

The following list is what files are being included, compared to what is on the ME cd. All of these files are from the MPLAYER2 cab in IE6 SP1, except msdxm.ocx, which is from 832353.

-File name- -Version in SP- -Version on CD-

asfsipc.dll 1.0.0.3858 1.0.0.3857

drmstor.dll 4.1.0.3858 4.1.0.3857

dxmasf.dll 6.4.7.1121 6.4.7.1112

mplayer2.exe 6.4.7.1121 6.4.7.1112

msdxm.ocx 6.4.7.1129 6.4.7.1112

msdxmlc.dll 6.4.7.1121 6.4.7.1112

npwmsdrm.dll 4.1.0.3858 4.1.0.3857

strmdll.dll 4.1.0.3925 4.1.0.3857

If anyone has a newer version of any of these files, please let me know. DO NOT POST FILES THAT START WITH 6.4.9 AS THEY DON'T WORK ON ANY PRE-2000 (ME included) OS. If this is wrong, tell me, and show it working.

Also, I am going away this afternoon and returning on Tuesday, so don't expect a new version before Wednesday. I might have some time on Tuesday night, but I honestly doubt it.

EDIT: I should also point out that I could NOT get 899282 from Microsoft. If anyone has the file, could they please send it to me so I can include it in the SP.

Let me know if you would like them.

I seems that all of KB832584, KB888617, KB899282 fixes are no longer available.

Hey guys:

I just requested KB830460, which I will be including in the next version. It updates msvcirt.dll to version 6.1.9845.0. Other than that, the next version of the SP is ready.
