98 SE SP 3.32

2,361 posts in this topic

Beta 2 installed without preblem but a few days later on re-booting I started to get shutdown error messages persistently citing Kernel32. This might of course not be anything to do with Beta 2 but has anyone else had this problem?

Update suggestions for future release

Update OLEAUT32.DLL 2.40.4519 to new version 2.40.4520 from last OLEUP.EXE

CDVSD.VXD downgraded to 4.10.2224 from 4.10.2226

Last version in Q304708 is 4.90.3004. Maybe that last version is better?

Not forgetting...

Here are some files that needs to be updated

Kernel32.dll 4.10.2226

MSVBVM60.DLL 6.0.9802

TSHOOT.OCX 1.0.1.2123

Kernel32.dll 4.10.2226 is the copy2gb fix, this bug is already addressed in the shell32.dll fix, but I have tested it and find it dosen't cause any conflicts, so there is no harm in adding this fix. I am, however against adding NUSB because MD updates his pack more often then gape does, so this will become something that I will have to manually remove, then re-install. Also, MSFN is beginning to crack down on EULA's so I don't like the idea of including legally questionable windows ME files. I really don't want Gape's pack to become a bloated monster, so IMHO he should stick to OS updates only. WIA is a format that is not widely used, what limits most scanners working in 9x is lack of driver support, not WIA support.

No problem so fa with the last uSP.

I had an expected issue with ESDI_506.PDR, but that's not common, more specific to my computer, I think.

For those having the same issue with ESDI_506.PDR, please try the version 4102222 from LLMX's patch

Bug report: Installing the latest beta after installing IE6 SP1 gives an error on Windows Update.

Reinstalling IE6 SP1 fixes the issue.

Gape are you working on a Beta 3 or perhaps an RC? Any ETA?

Thanks for all your work to keep Win 98 alive.

Strange as it is - I reinstalled to correct a corruption on my drive earlier today and found out a small issue (again) cropped up.

I didn't seemingly have it untill I installed SP3b2 and then KernelEx. AFter installing both, use of a command prompt will cause the dos box to cause a fault at random intervals (could be within 10 seconds or within 5 mins). If it happens during say , a ping or ipconfig; it causes the whole windows session to lockup.

So, anyone else notice this or am I just losing it? I get the same thing on my desktop from one of the earlier 3.0 beta's as well. I never mentioned it before because at the time I wasn't sure what was roughly causing it.

:blushing: Maybe,this is root of problems with using Kex0.3.3a and above for my older 2 systems 64mb/128mb Ram-when I installed newer Sesp3.xxx series.....Update's <Always Sesp2.1a is Stable even with Kex0.3.4..newest version....!!!> Noticed something "WIERD"to do with opening programs after a couple of days running *Ram Usage Size and Progam use with the Sesp3.xxx and above with Kex0.3.3a -0.3.4.*Some update either backdates or changes some value in AutoPatcher too!Stated these same "98SE Crash Performance Reactions" when using MDCU2.5 a few months prior.and was tring new Sesp3.xxx and above ..So,maybe it was not MDCU2.5 and RP7 colliding updates and functions therein ,but Sesp3.xxx....could be the culprit ????? *Now using Kex0.3.4 ,Uberkin ,RP8 ,update filesfor 98SE, 98SEregedit<New!>,Sesp2.1a and all other recent updaters up to today on all my 98SE systems-NO CRASHES!!!!!{*also Shockwave11 and Flash10 }Trying to use Nero7,just bad cdrom as it fights install on 98SE.All other xp/2k programs work though....even installed some Win2000/AdvSvr programs as have on another system and tried for fun of it they ran fully functional "Surprisingly Enough!!!"Sesp3 is in BetaStage , yet still needs work before becoming a RC release as too many problems with older systems using 98SE. :unsure:

3.0 Beta 3 is released. :thumbup

Hopefully it is latest beta.

Enjoy!

Please note that, as always, installation on a clean or freshly installed Windows 98 is highly recommended.

What exactly is this problem ? I got a hdd related problem in that when i enable dma on my second hdd it screws the fat (tho its fixable with minimal data loss) & when i copy files between hdds crcs change. Is this related to esdi_506.pdr ?
