Service Pack for Windows ME

Hello PROBLEMCHYLD, could you please explain why you prefer Oppcom over 98lite.

Thanks

It seems that users prefer to use Oppcom over 98lite. It was highly recommended over 98lite. I could actually use them both to test. Another thing 98 lite isn't free and Oppcom is.

Hello, the other day I installed Windows ME using 98lite. I chose the chubby option in 98lite keeping the ME shell. My reason for using 98lite over Oppcom is the ability to remove options pre-installation which creates a smaller neater registry. Using the custom installation setting in Windows, I removed a lot of stuff including pchealth, media players, webm, IE, directx, agent, script, update, etc...

After installation finished I added back directx 9.0c but chose not to install internet explorer. I then proceeded to Win ME SP3 beta2. SP3 did not like this configuration. MAIN UPDATE acted like it installed properly but I found out later that many of the files did not update. Other options seem to have installed fine. USBSTACK.EXE was not in the windows/system directory. I searched through the service pack for usb support but could not find anything.

Since the users who don't use the SP was bitching about Win98 SP3.x, I decided not to continue with it. I didn't or don't want to go through it all over again with windows me. I was on the verge of getting banned and a good friend of mine, asked me to fallback. I still read a lot on the forum, but as far as being thoroughly active, I have taken my business elsewhere. You can thank the non-SP users for their crying :hello:

I don't think you can blame the non-SP users. I don't use the SP, but I never said it was WRONG, just not my cup of tea. I only pointed out a few possible risks with your approach and some suggestions to make your users happier. The other non-SP users said very little as they had no reason to care. Most of the arguments you got into had to do with your implementation. These came from users or potential users of your SP.

I wasn't referring to you or others like you. You have tested the SP in the past years and have given constructive feedback.

You have not b***h about what was added and what was removed, what should be added and what should be deleted. You and many others don't complain. I have some of your freeware patches included, and even though you don't use it, you have help me fix many bugs. Thats a hell of a contribution :thumbup:thumbup:thumbup

This is very bad news for the 98 community. As keeper of the service packs your role here is large. Active members on a board like this make up only a small portion of the actual viewership and I assure you that this silent majority is all positive. I hope someone will come in and take over for the great work you have done but I doubt it. wherever you take your business, you will find all the same stereo types and nothing will change until you change. Peace
