I don't know if I missed any, but I think I have all the latest working updates as of now for SP3.
I'm sure if I continue working on it, I will find more ways to improve it. Thanks again

OLEAUT32.DLL 2.40.4527.0 (Windows2000-KB886766-v2-x86-ENU.EXE) +V3
OLEAUT32.DLL 2.40.4528.0 (Windows2000-KB139071-x86-ENU.EXE)
those 4527 and 4528 builds of oleaut32.dll file will break some apps on your 98se machine, PROBLEMCHYLD.
just like with what build 4532 from win2k did.
I use the NT4 version of oleaut32.dll file 2.40.4520.0 dated 12/21/2007 which is actually newer than 2.40.4522 dated 6/20/2003.
and here's a shocker about v2.40.4520 of oleaut32.dll! (pay close attention dencorso and PROBLEMCHYLD!)
it's also listed in MS KB article 327177.
BUT version 2.40.4520 of oleaut32.dll in KB327177 is dated 5/31/2002 with a size of 929,792 bytes
while version 2.40.4520 of oleaut32.dll in MS08-008 (946235) is dated 12/21/2007 with a size of 939,144 bytes.
SO, those two oleaut32.dll files that are version 2.40.4520 are NOT binarily identical (hmm, did Microsoft loose track of version numbers there?) confusing, isn't it?
I have the newest working oleaut32.dll file (build 4520) from the MS08-008 security bulletin for Win9x.

Unfortunately this seems to be a standard M$ practice... A lot of Win2k udpates (especially HBRs) have got files with same version number as the other ones but the file itself may be different / have different date, etc. A good way to determine which one is really newer is to compare version number first, and then, if they are identical, use xcopy/d to use the newer one (by date). HFSLIP uses xcopy/d only which in my opinion is a very bad method because there are sometimes newer files with older date. That's why I use both - first version compare and then xcopy/d only if the version is identical.

Thanks again for your tool. I notice it doesn't handle VXD files on WinXP.

Windows Management Instrumentation + Web-Based Enterprise Management works on Win98SE.
I wanted to add this version to the SP, but I didn't want people to think it was becoming a replica of 98SE2ME.
dencorso, gave some advice about using newer files because of the newer code.

@ jaclaz - You'll have to eventually retire sooner or later
Not really (or not any soon ), but is good to see how the young padawans can feel the force....
I have still at least 850 years before me :
