Yes, they say that *not* all W95 KernelToys work on W98.

WinTop *does*.

I've got a strange problem. I've got a Win98SE installation with a previously-applied 98se2me, and the latest (2.1a) SP. For some really strange reason, my double-click function is now pre-set to default to Search, or Find... this is not useful.

Here's a screenshot of the problem:

Also, the My Documents link on the desktop is missing its icon, and WILL NOT launch the correct folder. In this screenshot, you can see that I had to make a shortcut directly to the folder, just to access it.

I'll be trying this out on a vanilla 98SE install, in vmware, as well... This is mearly a heads up for all 98se2me users that haven't updated their copy of 98se2me in a while, and apply this new SP.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and the start button/start menu DOESN'T WORK AT ALL. I click the start button, and it stays depressed, but nothing shows up... (as you can see in the above screenshots). Use of TaskManager is the only way to reboot from within the virtual machine.

Gape:

I have recently noticed [at least on 1 computer] that "UpdateInis" INF directive works properly only if adding the folder handle name in front of the file(s) to be modified.

Example:

[Version]

Signature=$CHICAGO$

[DefaultInstall]

UpdateInis=UPDini

[uPDini]

%31%\MSDOS.SYS,Options,,"SystemReg=0"

%31%\WINBOOT.INI,Options,,"SystemReg=0"

as opposite to:

[Version]

Signature=$CHICAGO$

[DefaultInstall]

UpdateInis=UPDini

[uPDini]

MSDOS.SYS,Options,,"SystemReg=0"

WINBOOT.INI,Options,,"SystemReg=0"

Without "%31%\" setup thinks msdos.sys + winboot.ini are in %windir% [false], not in C:\ root [true]. :(

LDID directory handles for INF files:

LDID = Logical Disk IDentifier.
Can be one of these values:

00 Null [This LDID can be used to create a new LDID]
01 Source driveletter:\pathname
02 Temp Setup
03 Uninstall
04 Backup
10 Machine (Windows) directory
11 System directory
12 IOSubsys directory
13 Command directory
14 Control Panel
15 Printers
16 Workgroup
17 INF Directory
18 Help directory
19 Administration
20 Fonts
21 Viewers
22 VMM32
23 Color directory
24 Root of drive containing the Windows directory
25 Shared (Windows) directory
26 Guaranteed boot device for Windows (Winboot)
27 Machine
28 Host Winboot
30 Root directory of boot drive
31 Root directory of boot host drive

Hope this helps.

BTW:

I've tried SP 2.1a on 2 different 98SE installations, and worked like a charm.

Excellent job, Gape!

I've just installed the service pack (all options but metapad checked) on a fresh Win98SE install under a virtual machine (in QEMU) and I suffer from none of the problems Jimmsta describes above. Everything works as normal.

Very nice service pack by the way.

I also think that Wintop from the win95 kernel toys should be included. Maybe also the Timezone Editor and the DOS Mode Configuration Wizard.

I had experienced this a while back with 98SE2ME [this used to be a problem only with option 3 if I recall correctly], but it has been fixed.

Please re-install 98SE2ME after you have installed SP 2.1a.

98SE2ME:

http://www.msfn.org/board/?showtopic=46349

I don't know if SP 2.1a needs [or not] to be fixed/changed, that is a question for Gape.

Hope this helps.

Just tip for cleaning up the code ()

The following lines have exactly the same result in [AddReg.Something] sections of INF files:

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x00010001,0x00000400

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x00010001,0x400

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x00010001,00,04,00,00

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x00010001,1024

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x00010001,00001024

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x10001,0x00000400

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x10001,0x400

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x10001,00,04,00,00

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x10001,1024

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x10001,00001024

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x10001,"0x00000400"

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x10001,"0x400"

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x10001,"00,04,00,00"

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x10001,"1024"

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,0x10001,"00001024"

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,"0x10001","0x00000400"

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,"0x10001","0x400"

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,"0x10001","00,04,00,00"

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,"0x10001","1024"

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,"0x10001","00001024"

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,65537,0x00000400

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,65537,0x400

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,65537,00,04,00,00

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,65537,1024

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,65537,00001024

I have read (not tested) that for Windows 95 is the correct syntax only:

HKLM,TestKey,TestValue,65537,00,04,00,00

In SPUPDATE.INF are combined various syntaxes.

I know everyone concerned is busy and have lives to live, but I wish that the "detailed list" of the "120+ updates and hotfixes" would be prepared soon.

This is partly because I am confused (still) about what the pack includes and what it doesn't include. For example, quoting from Gape's site, he says:

It contains only operating system updates. It does NOT contain Internet Explorer 6, DirectX 9, Media Player 9 and their updates.

But the pack does contain some IE updates, doesn't it? For instance, new in 2.1a is Q885836 (MSWRD632.WPC), which, as I understand it, is an IE6 SP1 update.

Edit: oops - my mistake. It's not. For some reason, I mistook it for 885258. I'm not sure why, heh. But nevertheless: does the pack now contain some IE updates (e.g, 903235)?

Clasys recently mentioned a list (that he either has, or is making) of all IE updates (IE6 SP1 specifically I think - correct me if I'm wrong). Sharing this, combined with a list of all the updates in 2.1a, would be extremely helpful to everyone concerned, I think.

Although I am a relative newbie in all this, I have also just begun compiling my own lists. If I get the time and they turn out to be comprehensive enough (or at least a bit useful), I will post these online somewhere.

P.S. - thanks Gape, Petr and everyone else concerned for your dedication, skill and generosity in preparing these packs.

@swgreed: It looks like DSOUND.DLL problem is similar. Please, add these two lines for DSOUND.DLL and COMPOBJ.DLL to solve "in use" problems.

It actually was similar :)

added additionally:

[Copy.System]
DSOUND.DLL,,DSOUND.TMP,4
[Copy.Sysbckup]
DSOUND.DLL,,,4

and it installs perfectly.

You already have the complete list in SPUPDATE.INF file + WBEM updates, Q313829, Q329414, CRL update, root certificates update, MS Installer 2.0, Windows Script 5.6. What you are missing?

Yes, there are probably a few Media Player 6.4 fixes :

Hi! :hello:

I new to this board and I have a few simple questions...

1) What are the differences among those patches for W98 that can be found in the sticky threads...? :blink:

98 SE SP 2.1a

98SE2ME: ME -> 98 SE Killer Replacements

Windows 98 Revolutions Pack Lite

Installation Guide for Win98 SE SP 2.0

Service pack for Windows 98 Standard (First, Gold)

...and the alternative USB driver Maximus Decim Native USB ver.2.2

2) Is it possible to include all of those updates into an instalation CD of W98 se? If yes, how? :unsure:

3) What do you recommend me to try out first? Unfortunately I don't enough time to inspect all of the possibilities right now but I'm in hurry, to instal a brand new instalation of W98 to my friends computer so I want to gain some of the advantages that are presented here! ;)

98SE2ME: It copies some Win ME files into Win98 SE. Requires Win ME CD.

Win 98 Rev. Pack: It enhances Win98 SE visually and adds some new features such as New Task Manager.

Installation Guide: Installation order of these products.

Maximus-Decim NUSB: Generic USB driver for mass storage devices such as USB flash disks.
