98 SE SP 3.32

2,361 posts in this topic

Thanks, eidenk,

Just to clarify, I'm installing the 98SP 2.1a onto the existing, previously installed, 98SP and 98SE2ME upgrades.

Most version conflict files refer to WinME files, version 4.90.3000 etc.; plus hh.exe, hhsetup.dll, etc.; and mouhid.vxd, vip.386.

I installed your sesp21a-en.exe

And my 2nd windows98 wouln't boot up.

Luckily I have SYSTEM COMMANDER 7.03(SC7)and 3 OS's installed.

I.- 98SE_A admin/CD Burning/Audio editing/NO Network

II.- 98SE_B Internet and Gaming

III.- XP just to stay Modern, LOL

1.-After reboot SC7, recognised it as a DOS system and it wouln't boot from it

2.-I loaded the 98SE_A and noticed that the IO.SYS in my 98SE_B was gone, I had a IO.001,

which i copied "Copy of IO.001" and renamed the IO.001 to IO.SYS, rebooted.

3.- This time SC7, recognised it as a "Windows 98" system, not Windows 98SE But I could finally boot from it.

4.- I copied my 98SE_A's IO.SYS on top of the 98SE_B's IO.SYS, and rebboted.

5.- This time SC7, recognised it as a "Windows 98SE" system, all back to normal. :-)

I hope this helps anyone that might had a similar problem.

And Gape thks a lot to keep Win98 alive. THKS a million.

BTW i can even Play, Tactical Ops, NFS underground 2, Unreal Tournament 2004, thks to You all, and my tweaking of course.

@plop:

This is a normal situation. Because 982ME installs some newer WinME files. I think keeping newer files is a good idea.

But you can re-install latest 98SE2ME after installing 98SESP to make sure that everything is OK.

Thanks for the info.

Like Gape said, 98SE2ME installs newer versions of system files from WinME setup CD or even newer WinME hotfixes [patched files].

Please see READ1ST.TXT for details [the "FAQ" chapter, where it starts with: "* 98SE2ME does NOT interfere with Gape's Windows 98 SE Service Pack 2 (SP2):"]:

http://www.mdgx.com/9s2m/READ1ST.TXT

Full list of files replaced by 98SE2ME is here:

http://www.mdgx.com/98-5.htm#FME

If you installed HH.EXE, HHSETUP.DLL, HHCTRL.OCX, ITIRCL.DLL + ITSS.DLL from my older unofficial HHUPD.EXE update [which I have recently replaced with newer files update], and then if you try to install the official one from:

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

the newer files will not be overwritten, and you may have to replace them yourself by hand.

They go to:

- %windir% [usually C:\WINDOWS]:

HH.EXE

- %windir%\SYSTEM [usually C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM]:

HHSETUP.DLL

HHCTRL.OCX

ITIRCL.DLL

ITSS.DLL

If this is the case, make sure you register them properly [after you copy them to proper directories = see above] by running this batch file:

ECHO OFF
%windir%\SYSTEM\REGSVR32 /S %windir%\SYSTEM\HHCTRL.OCX
%windir%\SYSTEM\REGSVR32 /S %windir%\SYSTEM\ITSS.DLL
%windir%\SYSTEM\REGSVR32 /S %windir%\SYSTEM\ITIRCL.DLL
EXIT

MOUHID.VXD is not replaced [nor installed] by 98SE2ME.

Newer VIP.386 [build 4.10.2227] is installed by 98SE2ME options 1 + 2.

VIP.386 4.10.2227 is also installed by Maximus-Decim's NUSB:

http://www.msfn.org/board/?showtopic=43605

Hope this helps.

http://www.msfn.org/board/?showtopic=43605

MOUHID.VXD - this was the problem of improper version number 4.10.2223.0 (in Intellipoint 4.12) instead of 4.10.0.2223 (in Q254660) stored in the file. These files are otherwise identical, just version 4.10.0.2223 is correct.

NUSB22 does not contain VIP.386 file.

Do you know what is the origin of this 4.10.2227 version? You wrote in http://www.mdgx.com/9s2m/READ1ST.TXT "patched Win98 SE VIP.386 4.10.2227 modded by Maximus-Decim" but the file has too many differences to be just modded - at least in my opinion.

My bad, VIP.386 4.10.2227 is actually installed by Maximus-Decim's Cumulative Update:

http://www.msfn.org/board/?showtopic=50611

not by NUSB.

I have no idea where he got that file, I couldn't find any reference to it at Microsoft web site, so I assumed he [or someone else] modded the older VIP.386 4.10.2226 from Q259728. [?]

If you binary compare them, version 4.10.2227 is so different to 4.10.2226 (and 4.10.2224) that it does not look like simple modding. What versions exist?

Q238329 3.8.1999 14:50 4.10.2223

Q238453 23.9.1999 11:39 4.10.2224

Q242962 1.10.1999 17:38 4.10.2225

Q259728 10.5.2000 13:20 4.10.2226

Q?????? 9.8.2000 15:27 4.10.2227

Q329128 1.8.2002 12:27 4.10.2228 (not available)

So it looks like 4.10.2227 COULD be original file from Microsoft.

dsound.dll (again)

installing the SP2.1a after DirectX9c (as recommended) with the following line

DSOUND.DLL,,DSOUND.TMP,4

in the update.inf, makes the SP overwrite the new dsound.dll (4.09) from DirectX9c with the old one (4.07) from the SP :(

DxDiag also recognizes the deprecated file and recommends the reinstallation of DirectX9c

Is there an alternative installation method?

maybe another number than ",4"

REGARDING MY problem

I installed your sesp21a-en.exe

And my 2nd windows98 wouln't boot up

IO.SYS was corrupted etc..................

The file I downloaded from Rapidshare (i think) was corrupt evnthough it passed the MD5 and WINRAR test.

The SP2.CAB was corrupt the rest OK!

So I got a new copy from Majorgeeks. And this time everything went all right!! :-)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I did a complete reinstall of windows.

The only problem is that I lost my "shortcut arrows" on links after I installed 98SE2ME Option 2 (700 WinME system files ) after SP2.1a, and I want them Back!!

I know that if I install Option 3 [Windows Graphical User Interface (GUI),

Shell + Browser Integration Controls + APIs]

I will be able to see the arrows again.

But I don't want to because option 3, slows down my windows responsivenes, believe or not!

So how do I get the "shortcut arrows" back!!!

PLs help me.

Thks to the whole team for their efforts in keeping windows 98SE alive, and running faster than any other OS!!

Install TweakUI if you haven't do so and then go in Control Panel/TweakUI/Explorer/Shortcut Overlay. Tick the appropriate radio button. Click OK. Log-off or reboot. Arrows should be back.

Sorry Tweak UI 1.33 was not able to solve my problem!

I think there has to be another solution, and i'm sure this is happened before to some of you!

It happens to me every single time I install the 98se2ME option 2.

For this reason, you should post your question in the 98SE2ME thread.

Hi,

Thanks for using 98SE2ME.

Hope you like it.

This issue is detailed in 98SE2ME READ1ST.TXT:

http://www.mdgx.com/9s2m/READ1ST.TXT

under the "98SE2ME.PIF COMPLETE GUIDE" chapter. Quoted fragment:

- patched Registry entry: properly remove Desktop Icons Overlay [superimposed

Custom] or similar tweaking tools:

Then run OVERLAY.REG.

More info [see 3rd FIX]:

I have added this REG tweak to 98SE2ME because most of the people I know do not want to see those arrows on their desktops. ;)

BTW:

Please post all your comments/bugs/problems/etc related to 98SE2ME in the 98SE2ME forum:

...hmm, strange, I've never lost the shortcut arrows, even with repeated installs of (updated) 98se2me's, or fresh os installs...

-but I also use X-SETUP to make sure those arrows are there... (free version)...

I wonder if there is any reason why SP2.1a contains DHTMLED.OCX build 6.01.9231, instead of DHTMLED.OCX build 6.01.9232?

When MDGx suggested this file he referenced the later build from Win 2000 SP4 Update Rollup 1. As I understand it, SP4 UR1 was revised because of specific problems that many people were experiencing with it. So, in full, the update is now called SP4 UR1 v.2 (I think). Could it be that the DHTMLED.OCX build in SP2.1a is from the original SP4 UR1, and that v.2 contains the later build?

Anyway, thanks to anyone who offers an explanation of the different build numbers.

Also, does anyone know the source of Vredir.vxd build 4.10.2231 in SP2.1a? The latest build of this file I am able to find is 4.10.2230, in Q293793.

Again, thanks.

I suppose it is because both these files come from MS05-013: Vulnerability in the DHTML editing component ActiveX control could allow code execution and there must be some (unknown to us) reason why Microsoft have different file in Windows 98 SE version and Windows 2000 version of this fix.

No, SE SP 2.1a contains Windows 98 version of this file.

It comes from Directory Services Client Update for Windows 98. The simplest thing is to google for vredir.vxd 4.10.0.2231 - the first result is this knowedgebase article.
