Sorry guys no more updates. When I asked for help I didn't get it so the hell with you. I'm out of here like MDGX and the rest of the gang.

Sorry to hear that PROBLEMCHYLD.
I read of your personal circumstances on another thread, and I really hope that things are OK for you.
Thanks for everything that you've done here.
:)

Hi everyone!

I made a detailed analysis of versions of files in the SP3.cab. Five files in particular caught my interest:
1) Msconv97.dll - is in version 2003.1100.8165, even though in the SP 3.0 beta 4 it was in version 2003.1100.8166.
2) Mspaint.exe - is in version 5.00.1523.1, so an earlier one than on the installation CD of Windows 98 SE (5.00.1740.1).
3) Msxml.dll - is in version 8.0.6730.0, even though in 2004 Microsoft released the official version 8.00.7002.0 (hotfix KB832414_MSXML2.5_x86.exe, http://www.microsoft...lang=en&id=9354).
4-5) Msident.dll - is in version 6.00.2800.1106, Vgx.dll - is in version 6.00.2800.1612, even though in the unofficial update of Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 - MDIE6CU 3.4 (http://www.mdgx.com/spx/MDIE6CU.EXE) these files are in versions: Msident.dll - 6.00.2800.2000, Vgx.dll - 6.00.2800.1637.

Probably it is so for a reason, but what is this reason exactly? Thank you in advance for any information and suggestions on this.

I read of your personal circumstances on another thread, and I really hope that things are OK for you.

This is what changed my mind. Not everybody is selfish. Give all thanks to Dave-H.
I will try my best to give you guys a final version but I can't do it by myself, and I'm not too proud to ask for help.

Together we've got here, and remain strong...

This is the attitude we all need to have. I'm not looking for sympathy or praise. I'm looking for a solid foundation so we can all build on it. And that's what Gape left us. So lets get closer to the final build.
This is my second home now that I finally have a new one for my family. Thanks to all.

Yes, I feel like this is a second home too. Everyone does a great job, granted sometimes no one is online. But most times people really like to help out.
I really want to further my training so i've taken up learning programing and coding. This may take awhile to get good at so for now I offer any advise I already
know, which isnt bad since I grew up knowing these systems. But hey, this is the best place to be and im really glad to be here :yes:

Like Dave-H, I was saddened to read about your personal situation in another thread and I could definitely relate, having gone through many similar events in my life (like so many of us). I too am deeply appreciative of your work with the Service Pack and commend you for it, even though I haven't personally had a need for it yet, having piecemeal patched my Win98 SE systems over the years. That may change soon if I decide to do a new fresh install of Win98 SE in the future. Keep up the great work and best wishes for everything.

Yeah, glad you finally got rid of that hand grenade, I was afraid it would explode in your hand some day. :lol:

Btw there is an msxml3.dll version 8.90.1101.0 that would appear to be more recent than the one in the current pack and which seems to work OK.

http://www.search-dl...msxml3.dll.html

And since the pack is already quite big why not adding a bit of eye candy with the patched Vista screensavers? (I love Bubbles)

Not sure I agree with that.
If you start putting that sort of thing in, it becomes more of an enhancement pack than a service pack.
I think things like that should be included in a separate package.

FWIW I agree with Dave-H.

Do you mean guys in a separate pack along all that is in this pack and is enhancement/add-on and not hotfix/security update such as:

Agent Server
Distributed Com Configurator
Euro Conversion Tool
IExpress Wizard
IPP Client
Paint Graphic Filters
Smart Card Base Components
New Animated Boot and Shutdown Logos
Ole Viewer
Power Management Troubleshooter
Remote Desktop Connection
True Type Fonts
True Type Properties Extension
TweakUI
UPnP
WBEM/WMI
Windows 2000 Theme
Wintop
Xbox 360 Controller Drivers
Zip Folders

:lol:

A couple more suggestions:

VC++ 2005 SP1 runtime files: http://www.microsoft...ls.aspx?id=5638

Windows 7/Office 2010 Gabriola true type font: http://www.fonts2u.c...orporation.html

A quick question (and I hope it's the right place to ask it):

Does any comparable pack exist, incorporating all of the official Microsoft updates, for Windows 98 Standard (first) Edition?

Thanks!

Everything listed above is (ALL) optional. They are there for completeness. Also remember before I took over the SP, Gape had his own options for things that might be needed for certain individuals. I just expanded those options. Files included in the Service Pack are Microsoft only. I agree the pack has gotten bigger, so has some of the updates thats inside too. I have to say this is probably the smallest most up to date service pack for Win98SE. With all options selected, the service pack installs in less than 5 minutes.

VC++ 2005 SP1 runtime files: http://www.microsoft...ls.aspx?id=5638

Service Pack already includes a newer version MSDIA80.DLL 8.0.50727.4053

Problemchyld, I didn't mean to criticize the SP by making this list, I find it's all cool, I was just pointing out to those who criticized my suggestion to include the Windows Vista screensavers that the SP contains already many items that would equally fall under their criticism.

As for the VC++ 2005 SP1 runtime files, they are not only msdia80.dll so why not including also mfc80, msvcp80, msvcr80, atl80, vcomp, etc... since the equivalent earlier VC++ runtime files are already in the pack, eg.:xxx60.dll, xxx70.dll, xxx71.dll.

Your call anyway.

Cheers.

Edit: And btw, links for your SP are hard to find, I think you should ask dencorso for taking ownership of the first post of this thread or get a new sticky so it can be found easily.
