Such a luck that the "Vulnerability in Windows Explorer Could Allow Remote Code Execution (908531)" Update hasn't been released yet otherwise maybe we would have to cope with the same crap like on Windows XP.

Wupg98 has been re-updated!

The changes:

DirectDraw 3D settings added (registry tweak)

hhupd (1.4)

rootsupd ver. 8,0,2195,0

very much patched *g*

BTW this should be the most stable version cause most work was finding program flaws

this time.

As there are no new Microsoft updates anymore has someone any ideas for

patches ,hotfixes (hopefully not to large ones) that could be added in a newer version?

If an unofficial ms06-015 patch can be made it will be consider to add that one.

Which language is your Windows 98 OS and which language of the wupg98(english or german) did you try to install?

If you installed the german pack over an english 98 OS or vice versa this can happen. You should install the same language as your OS has.

So to the conflict I would like to know if you had first installed the KUP or the WUPG?

WUPG98 installs the kernel32.dll 4.10.2224 and makes a backup (in the recover folder)of the kernel32.dll that was on the system before.

KUP I think renames the old kernel file?

So there are when I think about it 2 options what could have happened.

Please tell if it was one of these 2 cases:

a.) You installed WUPG and KUP ,then uninstalled WUPG so the new functions of KUP got lost becaus the original kernel32.dll was restored after the uninstallation.

b.) You installed firtst KUP then WUPG and maybe the kernel32.dll was replaced by WUPG(that hasn't got the extra functions). Althought this seems unlogical cause the update installer checks if already newer files exist.

I never had the chance to install it on Win 98 FE by my self( since MY only testing pc with 98 SE on it for testing was accidently destroyed because the contact of the bios battery socket broke down on my trying to reset bios by taking out and inserting the battery again *embarrassing*).

Maybe somebody else could report how the results are.

But I suggest it should work since most updates only should install if the properly OS version is used.

I just got WUPG98 and I must say it is a very nice package! I definitely give it :thumbup for being able to manually install/not install certain things with WinRAR, it's just a nice feature to have. Keep up the good work, I love updates like this

Sorry to say, but MM1 doesn't install right...I know some MS-DOS batch programing, so I opened up install.bat and saw the problem: the MM1 directory needs to be created on the user's hard drive before you copy the program!!! I got MM1 eventually...needed to copy the MM1 install directory to my hard drive manually. Hope this helps for the next relese of WUPG98! :thumbup
