[...]The bottom line is VIP.386 4.10.0.2228 makes my surfing experience smoother, with less resource drain than v. 2227, whereas NDIS.VXD 4.10.0.2226 seems to facilitate the occurrence of "Internet Explorer will be closed" type errors, so I downgraded to v. 2225 back again. Yet, when I have more time I'll give it a more thorough testing. For the moment, however, I'll keep just vip.386 v. 2228 in my system.

:hello: Good news! I've been testing NDIS.VXD 4.10.0.2226 in my system again for 3 weeks, now, without any problems. I've been unable to reproduce the original issue I reported before, not having had any instance of "Internet Explorer will be closed" type errors in these three weeks, so I'm sure that what happened on my first test must have been due to some internet quirk outside my system that has been resolved already. I'm now convinced NDIS.VXD 4.10.0.2226 works OK.

I recently installed Virtual PC 5.1 on my 98SE testbox. Last night I was building a 98FE guest system. When it finished installing drivers and restarted in normal mode for the first time, my host system, 98SE, suffered a BSOD with the following:
0028:C1849D04 in VXD PPPMAC(04) 0000C874

PPPMAC.VXD is version 4.10.2223, installed by the unofficial service pack sesp30a1-en. The present alpha 2 version uses the same file. Version 4.10.2223 of PPPMAC.VXD appears to the break shared networking on Virtual PC 5.1. When I replaced PPPMAC.VXD with an original copy , it fixed the problem and shared networking works normally.

I don't know if this issue can be duplicated on another PC, if it's specific to mine, or if this is even useful to you. Other than this issue, the unofficial 98SE service pack works great on my PC.

Hi herbalist,
What version was your original working PPPMAC.VXD?
I too use Virtual PC 5.1 with Windows 98SE Host OS.
I last had shared networking working around the middle of last year.
Sometime since then it's been broken although I really cannot remember exactly when...
May this year I was using version 4.10.0.2222 which did not work either...
It was then I installed MDGx's 98SE2ME package.
I'm now using PPPMAC.VXD from Windows Me (installed by 98SE2ME) version 4.90.0.3000 and it still does not work with Virtual PC 5.1.
I'm keen to find out what version you are using that works.

I'v got the same 'IDE in "DOS compatible mode"' problem as after installing Unofficial Service Pack 2.1a.
These files shouldn't be replaced (at least on my PC):

Also, All: there is newer msvbvm60.dll (6.0.97.98, kb930828) available, for example here. There is newer kb934602, but is is not available yet [i've tried to request it].


Forget it, Tihiy. KB934602 is another hotfix that has been "shortlived" and is no longer available from MS support anymore. I've tried requesting KB934602 myself a few weeks ago and MS doesn't have it anymore as what I've been told. Consider using KB930828 which should be mentioned at MDGx's web site.

RetroOS,
I'm using version 4.10.2222, extracted from driver14.cab. I haven't installed 98SE2ME, only the 98SE 3.0 alpha 1 and 2 service packs. Most likely, there's major differences between your system and mine. Earlier in its building, I used IEradicator to strip out Internet Explorer. Had to install IE6 in order to get VirtualPC to work at all.
I need to go back to an earlier setup and check things more closely too. I'm finding things broken as well and I don't know exactly when they broke. My CD burning software (BurnAtOnce) doesn't recognize any of the CD drives.

herbalist,
My previous pppmac.vxd file, although it was 4.10.2222, was from Dial-Up Networking 1.4 from MS.
This version and the one from the cabs have the same version number and almost the same size.
DUN14 version is dated five months newer.
I've had this version for some years...
So... My problem does not appear to be pppmac.vxd then...
I've had very little broken software with the unofficial packs installed.
(One problem is Adobe Reader ActiveX crashing when loading a pdf in IE - had to turn off imbedded pdf...)
I really cannot recall if I had any of the packs installed when Virtual PC networking broke...
Oh well, I'll just have to build another box and test installing each pack until it breaks...

If I attempt to install 98SE SP3 with additional options, I get an error telling me there's not enough memory. I have a GIG of DDR400 SDRAM. I shut down everthing I can, even the systray and I still get that. Only if I disable all additional options and install the base SP3 only can I install. Do you have the system tweaks and other options in a separate package for install?

thx

I checked the files included in CRYPT9X.EXE and they are the same versions as the ones included in USP3.0A2. There's alot of files that gape updated and didn't put on his changelog.

Add the following to SYSTEM.INI

MaxPhysPage=39A00

and see if it works.

Is there a way, getting the Hibernate Mode working on Windows 98SE?
I know it would be better to use Standby but I just wonder why it was possible on my Windows ME that was installed on the same pc like Windows 98.
Windows 98 has not got older, it just matured after 12 years!

And what about 48-bit LBA patch by LLXX (http://www.msfn.org/...showtopic=78592) ? Are you going to add it to uSP?



I have tested this patch and LLXXs 48-bit LBA patch, now on a few machines and I am happy to see it added.

I think LLXX's patch should be added, then basically it means Win98SE USP does it all!

- All Official fixes
- All critical unofficial fixes
- Copy Over 2GB
- Use hard disks bigger than 137GB

NO, winxpi! I've said this before in old threads concerning hibernation and 98se; You will NEVER get the Hibernation option on your 98se machine UNLESS you are using a LAPTOP computer and the laptop maker has turned on the hibernation feature!!! Hibernation was NOT an OS feature until Win2000, ME, XP and Vista OSes came out and using the ME power management drivers under 98se could put a Win98 SE out of commission for good or make things worse.

FORGET IT AND MOVE ON! Many Win98se users don't have a use for the hibernation feature anyway and don't really need it. If you have a real urgent need for the hibernation power management feature, upgrade your operating system to at least Win2000.

Is there an ETA for a 3.0 beta

No, Bobkat. come back in a few months and we'll tell you when a 3.0 beta is ready.

The download link doesnt work... :angry: :unsure:

From now on, Dblake1, get the latest alpha or beta release of uSP 3.0 for Win98se at MDGx's web site. Good thing MDGx has made it available there.
