Maybe, in the future, I'll add file version check to make sure backups will not be overwritten.
Please note that this will add to the file size, and 98MP10 is already 7.5 MB.
BTW:
I'm actually considering deleting the entire backup section from the INF, because all files seem to work ok so far.

Please do its annoying having to uninstall reboot then install reboot.
and this will be every time you make a new update.

Hi, MDGx:

Way back then, you used to distribute:

ADVPACK.DLL 6.0.2900.2180
ASCTRLS.OCX 6.0.2900.2180
BROWSELC.DLL 6.0.2900.2180

as part of 98SE2XP. Then you reverted to older
files, and they aren't part of the present 98MP10.

Could you please tell me what issues did they cause?
I've looked arround both the forum and your site, but
didn't find any hint on what happened. And I found no
version history for 98MP10 that reached to 98SE2XP
times. Can you please help me? Thanks.

I'd be grateful also if other members of this forum who
had/have experience with these files were willing to report
their findings on their use. Is there anyone that still does
use any of them? Thank you all!

I have removed those 6.0.2900.xxxx files because they are meant for MS IE 6.0 SP2 , which is installed by XP SP2.
I recall having some minor issues while using them a while back, so I reverted back to older XP SP1 [MS IE 6.0 SP1] files, which provide better compatibility with 9x OSes.

But if you'd like to use them, please feel free to do so.
Just download XP SP2 [266 MB]:
http://www.mdgx.com/xp.htm#SP2
and extract them using either WinZip 9/10 or PowerArchiver.
Then decompress the actual files from *.DL_ and *.OC_ by using EXTRACT.EXE.

Complete details on which files are installed by 98MP10:

Thanks for the feedback, MDGx. :thumbup

Well, I've actually been testing some MS IE 6.0 SP2 files for a while, so
here are my findings:

I've used BROWSELC.DLL 6.0.2900.2180 for some time but gave up on it,
because I found it to be too resource-hungry:
I'd get a Low Resource error message just by browsing around the MSFN
forum in Hi-Fi Version, and if I don't change to the Lo-Fi Version
quickly enough, my system would go down to 0% GDI resources with all
the usual associated bad things happening...
I've reverted to BROWSELC.DLL 6.0.2800.1106 and this issue went away.

It seems that PROBLEMCHYLD had found a similar problem with BROWSELC.DLL
6.0.2900.2180, in a rather different scenario. See:
http://www.msfn.org/...o...p;p=567490

On the other hand, I've been using the 6.0.2900.2180 builds of
BROWSEWM.DLL SHDOCLC.DLL and SFOLDER.DLL for about a fortnight now,
with no apparent problems happening so far. However, if I ever find
any issues with any of them I'll sure post about them.

But, in view of your message I've decided to downgrade to build
6.0.2800.1106 ADVPACK.DLL and ASCTRLS.OCX, just to be on the safe
side.

I do realize that I'm perhaps somewhat off-topic with this message, :blushing:
but since half the files here mentioned were once part of 98SE2XP, I felt
this would be the place to post. Should I have posted to the main updates
+ patches + (hot)fixes topic? Please advise.

Thanks once more.
Best wishes.

Many thanks for sharing your experience using these files.
It does help.

And no, you are not posting in the wrong place. Now that I've combined 98SE2XP + 98SE2MP into 98MP10, this makes perfect sense, this is the appropriate forum.

Please keep me up-to-date with your findings.

Best wishes.

Hi MDGx!

I just got through a new 98SE install including 98MP10. I wanted to tell you about a thing in this program, and also a thing in 98SE2ME that I'll put up in that thread.

For this one, I got a missing DLL that apparently has to do with splash screens. After using 98MP10 and starting the SBLive 5.1 Liveware install I got a, ""required DLL file was not found MSASN1.DLL."

I ignored it and it all installed fine, but at restart after the Liveware install I got the error again, along with, "Ctavstub-illegal operation-exception in ASDXM.OCX."

Well, since it happened twice I went into System File Checker and extracted MSASN1.DLL from the 98SE install files and had it put it into the System folder.

Seemed to do the trick as on the bootup following I got the annoying Creative music and, "EAX," pronouncement.

I have no idea about that ASDXM.OCX and since I didn't get any more errors I'm ignoring that one.

I'll post the 98SE2ME thing in that thread. Hey! So far things are working.

Well now, things are still going nicely following using Auto-Patcher again to install the latest updates included in the new August version.

In addition to what I reported about earlier, I do want to mention that I had forgotten about that old Windows Media 7 Bonus Pack (or, even the 9 version one your pack used to install at one time). I've always wondered whether stuff from that had anything to do with assorted problems that I'd encounter, and also recall that running the 7 Bonus Pack installer after using 98MP10 resulted in it failing to complete installation.

Since it's not a need, I haven't bothered with it. But I remember there were some nice skins and visualizations, file converters, etc that would be nice to have. But again, not a necessity.

Was there a reason you took that newer 9 Bonus Pack out of the set at some point? Perhaps it caused some problem? I also remember that your version was the only way to get the 9 version of it to install on 98SE. Only the 7 version's installer would run on 98SE but you got around that somehow.

Woohoo! - You 'da man MDGx! - Another nice XP transplant. :lol:

98MP10 has worked well for me for some time now - it rocks!
Keep up the good work with 9x!

Happy New Year All! - Windows 9x alive and kicking in 2008! :thumbup

:( UPDATE: I installed the lastest 98MP10 and got a problem with two missing files.
I installed 98MP10, rebooted when prompted, and then got a missing CABINET.DLL file error when the desktop appeared.
I looked in the WININIT.BAK file and noticed that it had renamed CABINET.DLL and MSHTML.TLB to their .MP9 backup files but had not replaced them with anything...
I recall having the same problem when I installed the last August update but was not sure if it was a one off...
I have resolved the issue by copying the two .MP9 backups to their original files.

RetroOS, which version re u using? I still have the version from February last year because no releases since seem to play well. I should have mentioned to MDGx but never got around to it. Hey MDGx, what RetroOS said, i get the same messages. And i've tested this quite a bit, there's always the messages.

No, wmvcore.dll 10.x.x.x [any build] does not work with Win9x OSes.
You must use wmvcore.dll 9.00.00.3355 , the most recent 9.x.x.x build to my knowledge.

PROBLEMCHYLD, this topic is for Windows Media Player.
MSVBVM60.DLL is a Visual Basic library and is not really part of any package.
It will probably be included in Auto-Patcher and Unofficial Service Pack.

I will have to test which files work from MP9URP9X + XP SP3, so I need some spare time... soon I hope.

About removing DRM:
I will add an INF file anybody can run from a simple batch file, to remove DRM files + reg entries [move them to a backup folder] and another INF to restore them, if any1 cares to do so.

I will post here the updates when I have them.

About WMPBAND.DLL:
The 1 u need should be in "C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player" .
Delete the 1 in %windir%\SYSTEM .

Thanks.
