WUPG is 28 mb.
The old Auto-patcher (2007) plus Upgrade (2008) is over 300 mb in size.
What am I not understanding here?

I replied to your "I'm baffled" topic to provide a small amount of information. In addition, the file you want (in this topic) is also hosted on MDGx' website. Strangely enough, I just went there and was able to download it here. Dunno, maybe you need to actually go to the website (worked for me)?

I checked "my" server right now.
It appears EVERY free homepage server using "host.sk" isn't working now.
Thats why wupg98.net.tf isn't working because its just a free-domain for the url http://bpa23.host.sk/wupg.html
So that the download isn't working currently is only logic, if the site doesn't open.
Its anyway not my fault if the web server is unavailable.
If you urgently need the pack then additionally look up mdgx.com.
The server will be available again right in time. So just wait if you have the time.
Don't worry be happy ;).
Thx.

MDCU (Maximus Decim Cumulative Update) - think NOT.
MDDACU (Maximus Decim Data Access Component Update) - ?
MDIE6CU (Maximus Decim Internet Explorer 6 SP1 Component Update) - ?
NUSB [?] (Native USB) for Windows 98/98SE - optional?

*NUSB won't be needed, USB improvement is already integrated in WUPG98.
About MDIE6CU I have to say the last IE6 Update in the 98Pack is called

*KB953838 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (October, 2008) .
So if MDIE6CU has updates newer than Oct. 2008 YOU SHOULD INSTALL THEM if using IE6(!).
Not if you use firefox already.

*About MDDACU and MDCU I know to less.

Thank you very much!
I hope everything is ok again.
Anyway if you use Firefox there should be nearly zero problems.

Thank you very much for this announcement.
Our host.sk server however deleted the file out of unknown reasons and further uploads of certain sizes ON THERE are not possible.
I am uploading it now on an alternative server.

Please watch the first site of the thread I posted the new links now!

Note the size of the file indicated by the arrow. Many sites send you a downloader and most times they are a few hundred KB in size like this one. You do not want or need the "downloaders" because at the very least they will have toolbars, if not actual spyware.

So uncheck that box quickly and you should never see the downloader. I suggest the OP edit the top post and warn folks ( you can use this image if you want - http://i.imgur.com/k3pd4aP.jpg - it is that first one shown ).

P.S. Another thing to note is that the default action for that file download dialog in my Opera window there is "Save" and NOT "Run". I can't remember if that is something that Opera has by default or if it is a preference I changed. But it is a very important distinction because if it were "Run" it would mean the only thing separating your computer from malware is a single click or "Enter". :blink:

In addition, the "THE SKY IS FALLING!!!" poster fails to note that there are two other options (probably more complete).
(WOW! First post to come and SCREAM!)

Fair warning again given - do NOT mix this one with the OTHER projects!

Please ALSO note that Autopatcher include many (MANY) Optional Components (IE6, DX9, etc) that this one does NOT!

SESP3 is a "repackaged" set of Updates requiring no other Optionals to be installed.

THIS package falls more in line with Autopatcher methods and WILL require other Packages to be installed FIRST!

This also explains the "size" differences. Reference the sticky "Complete List Of Hotfixes" for more information.

As the Old Crusader said in Indiana Jones "Choose wisely...".

Thank you for asking.
I had to put the download file on "uploading.com" because several times when it was on "host.sk" servers the downloads were unavailable althought I put the file on the server.
So I choosed to use a external server which is more reliable!

I've done some testing with the browsers. However I found out that FireFox 3 is not the best choice.

I'm now using the Opera version 10.63 on my Windows 98SE Pc which is better than FF.

For example when I tried loading the website "List of TCP and UDP port numbers - Wikipedia" the loading of the table it took nearly eternities with ff3 or internet explorer 6.

 

Background info: The opera 10.63 (apparently for windows me, but it will work on 98se too, at least on using kernelEx) is from 2010.

so pretty actual!

 

I found the version through "wikihow" -"how to use windows 98".

The direct link (if unknown) to the browser is:

http://www.oldapps.com/opera.php?old_opera=85 

 

Btw. I want to say thank you to the community for the great uptodate "  Last Versions of Software for Windows 98SE " section, through which I found Spybot Search&Destroy 2.2 as a Anti-Spyware software. At the moment I'm trying to optimize internet speed on my 98se Pc. Because I don't want to take the fact, that my machine only reaches 6mbps download potential through a 100BaseT cable!  And our max speed on every other OS is 15Mbit/s with W-Lan! So I'm trying to find out if there is any spyware on it.

Soon I'll find out more!

11.64 is the better option if you have KernelEx installed, and 12.02 works too but is much slower...

Thanks. I'm running the 11 version now and installed flash 10 over latest kernel ex.

Only problem is, whenever i use the IE6 flash applications make the browser crash(as flash 10 is only supposed to run on win 2000 and ie6 from win98se don't work together). However I could speed up my downloads a bit. But its no real boost.

 

I used this application: http://www.speedguid...t/downloads.php

Just wanted to share this information, as I know how it sometimes sucks being limited on internet speed just because of the registry settings and so stuff...
