Way back then, you used to distribute:
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 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.
Thanks for the feedback, MDGx.
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:
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
I do realize that I'm perhaps somewhat off-topic with this message,
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.
