  1. I've got an old Linksys WPC54G PC Card that works in 98 without any tweaking. This person claims that Ralink RT61 based adapters work. https://cloakedthargoid.wordpress.com/win9x-wpa2/
  2. Sadly not the first time I looked at a Samsung and mistook it for a Brother printer. The design of the front and of the paper tray are very similar. I once had a Xerox scanner, it was really a Visioneer. Does Xerox make anything themselves anymore?
  3. The Xerox B215 looks suspiciously similar to a Brother All-in-One printer
  4. One of the many reasons why having a chrome based browser monopoly is bad. Feels like we are back in the bad old ie6 days.
  5. Openoffice 3.2 and NativeWinds Docx2Rtf can open docx files in win98 LibreOffice 3.3 also works but the installer gives some error messages. Sumatra PDF 2.2.1 can read epub files. All except Docx2Rtf require kernelex to work.
  6. A new version with security fixes. http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/406/kb406791.html
  7. Issue 2 KX: 4.0.12 (RC2) - no problem with earlier versions Many times when starting Windows, the wallpaper will appear and then nothing. The mouse cursor moves but no other activity. Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del once does nothing, twice shows a "Windows is busy" blue screen. Pressing a key, gives the Task Manager. Task Manager shows only one process - mprexe (not responding). After I end this task, there is some disk activity then nothing again. Then Ctrl-Alt-Del again as above, but this time it shows msgsrv32 (not responding). After ending this task, nothing - I have to restart. Workaround: Install Revolutions Pack 9 (with KernelEx 4.0 RC2) (!) I noticed the printing problem as well, but I think I have a solution. Search for the spool32.exe file and right click on properties. Click the compatibility tab, and select disable kernelex extensions. Your printing problems should go away.
  8. MS Paint from windows XP works with kernelex 4rc2. The only thing that has to be added is the mfc42u.dll file to C:\windows\system folder and GDI+
  9. You mean aka Windows NT 3.1 circa 1993. In 1993 if you had a single core 32 bit CPU with an FPU, you were on the cutting edge. NT was not created for 64bit or quad core CPU's, it was created to be a Unix competitor http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_nt Be careful what version of XP you get, XP home does not support multiple CPU's. My understanding is that it will support 1 multicore CPU, but sources are not clear on this. http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_home_pro.asp Quote:"Multi-processor support - Windows XP Pro supports up to two microprocessors, while Home Edition supports only one. "
  10. http://www.geocities.com/bearwindows/vbe9x.htm Have you tried these?
  11. According to the hotfix page NUSB 3.3 came on 2007 Dec 12, which means you probably have 3.2. http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=84886
  12. I wouldn't use helix heap extender as a way to solve the GDI resource problem http://support.microsoft.com/kb/136776 Quote from MS: "Hurricane and its utilities are incompatible with Windows"
  13. Link to adobe site download. Remember to uninstall old version first. http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewConten...1&sliceId=1
  14. There is a 1394 driver already built into 98se. I suppose it might help 95 users though.
  15. I need the uniata driver (universal sata driver), but the site seems to be down. Does anybody have a copy, or know of a mirror? I found a copy of the file on a react os live cd, but I'm not sure if it is the same as the windows version. Here is a link to the site http://alter.org.ua/en/soft/win/uni_ata/
  16. It's a driver set for usb 2.0 contollers. It's already included with NUSB 3.3.
  17. The choice to use cdvsd.vxd 4.10.2224 was done because 4.10.2226 has compatibility problems with some drives. I think it removed in beta 2.
  18. Flash This adds the same security fixes that was applied to flash player 10.
  19. In the old days the people with the new os would flame those who were 1 release behind, funny how vista has become troll bait...
  20. http://bcheck.scanit.be/bcheck/index.php The part it fails is the msxml part. I have MD MDAC update 1.4 installed.
  21. I agree that some if not most of these updates should be applied to Gape's pack. However there is one I am nervous about due to some users having problems with it. The patched IO.sys caused one users drive letters to become messed up. I think this patch needs further testing. It worked OK for me, but I have a very standard configuration. I.E. my hard drive is C:, Floppy is A: etc. On more unusual systems this might cause problems. X360C.exe is a device driver, and that is not something that we should really get into because it would set a precedent that we should add more device drivers and then we end up with a huge SP that would span a couple of CDs.I think for users who want the kitchen sink approach, the autopatcher fills this need. I think Gape's pack should be for people who use 98 Lite, or don't use IE, or updates IE manually.
  22. Maybe Freedos would be easier for what you are trying to do. Freedos
  23. Looks like a scripting problem. Do you have Ms script 5.7? I find it doesn't work so well with 98, 5.6 works better. Worst case you can use Opera, as it seem to work better with sites that use more advanced features.
