  1. @tri: The Windows XP FAQ on this forum.... first topic, please let me know if it helps! @x: I get a zip archive with 2 inf's and a dll, I don't use nlite, what is nlite?
  2. I am running XP sp3 on a HP pavilion dv6000. I have fixed most issues on this machine but one remains: Almost everyday, Windows update takes over the machine for 5 minutes, even when it has nothing to download or install. Reading the FAQ above, refers to a KB article that recommends Fixit to correct the problem. When I run Fixit, it reports that the system is configured incorrectly, reports that it is correcting the configuration, reports that it has verified the correction. But the problem remains and running Fixit again confirms that it has not changed. Does anyone know of a manual fix for this problem? Or is some software that is installed causing this problem? A service is not configured properly? Thanks!
  3. @frogboss: Thanks, next time I won't have to transplant it from XP maybe... @Everyone: Latest version seems to render video better on my particular machine, although it does some weird stuff too. I have Radeon 128MB GeForce and 800Mhz processor with no SSE2 acceleration. Looks like it was able to squeeze a better frame rate at small video sizes but there's not enough processor power to do large video well or hi def streams. Try scrolling away from the video while it plays and then back onto it again, sometimes it goes into fast motion mode to catch up - really weird, must be some real weird frame buffering going on, then again that could be the video driver, they tend to be very buggy. That's my report snuz
  4. Hello all, Is there a procedure to extract the new flashes dll's as they become available? A way to do it without downloading and installing to XP first and grabbing the plugin? Or a site that just archives the plugin dll's without the installer? ( I thought filehippo did this , but doesn't seem to be true). I can't get the Installers to run on 98 anymore. Looking for the plugins, not the active X. And don't direct me to adobe's website with a 100GB download of which it is not easy to even find the dll, it would be easier for me to steal it from an XP machine! Just wondering what the state of the art is. . . I don't want a hexed version, just the plugin. Thanks
  5. The comdlgex patch corrects a specific problem of some applications requiring a newer, slightly different print dialog than included with W98. The two dialogs are so similar that more or less the data to fill in the dialog fields just needed to be rearranged a bit. The patch fixes the problem of the newer dialog not being recognized on W98 and reformats the data for the old dialog and calls the old dialog instead. This was the problem with Sumatra, I don't think that FF has that problem, [but I could be wrong], I always get a print dialog from FF even before this patch - unfortunately, I don't get much more than that. But that's all that was fixed here, the dialog not popping up. Programs that call the old W98 dialog don't need this patch and won't benefit from it. Programs that failed to show a print dialog will be helped along by this patch. Before the patch was created, KernelEx would stop the error of the new print dialog function not being found, but it didn't show any dialog. It allowed the application to still load and not crash when Print... was selected but didn' t allow printing to occur. Programs that could put up a print dialog won't be helped by this patch. If someone with a little more knowledge of this would care to commnet in case I got it wrong....So yeah the title of the thread includes FF, but the solution on here is only for Sumatra afaik. Hope this helps and clears things up a bit. If someone knows of another application that is actually print enabled by this patch ( or you really got it to fix FF) let us know !!
  6. @dencorso: Maybe I'm using it incorrectly, but W98SE loader reports it is improperly linked with alignment less than 0x1000 and refuse to load.
  7. Confirming the latest works for me on Sumatra 1.8. I don't see any way it could possibly break anything else either. Thanks very much.
  8. Just adding some more info on the broken save/open dialogs: Doesn't matter which version of the translation dll is used, doesn't matter if it is located in \system\ or local to the application. The Sumatra open save dialogs don't work. Using the latest comdlgex.dll ( 3 functions) also doesn't pop the print dialog in sumatra. comdlgex2.dll does enable the print dialog to pop. Installing ComDlgEx.dll ( 3 functions again) in \system\ broke open and save dialogs in Kmeleon1.6. although some apps still had their open/save dlgs working. And.... I am using the portable version of Sumatra1.8.
  9. Yeah, good idea, put all them in there! I notice that the other dialogs like save and open are broken now... I used method 3 to install. Any way to get them to map through to comdlg00 as well? Sorry for my ignorance but what does Ssync_ANSI_UNICODE_Struct_For_WOW - stub: SetLastError(ERROR_CALL_NOT_IMPLEMENTED) do for us?
  10. I can confirm it works with Sumatra 1.8. I placed the translation dll in the folder with sumatra, cloned the comdlg32 in \system and removed the reference from "known dlls" in the registry. I hexed the translation dll to replace PrintDlgExA with PrintDlgExW. I tried it with Sumatra 1.1 and didn't have much luck, flagrant abuse of memory ensued and I don't think I got a readable output in several tries. But it did link up okay I don't think this has anything to do with Mozilla apps though, they always pop the print dialog, just output mostly blank pages.... Edit// the previous post in the thread popped up as i wrote this, sorry for the duplication.
  11. You might try toast.net. When I had them a couple of years ago, they were very good. Avoid anyone who wants to install on your machine...as others have said. These companies just purchase time from modem banks, I think the actual equipment is owned by your phone company. I would guess that somebody besides netzero bought access to your area, unless of course nz negotiated an exclusive contract. If there is cable out there, and you call your local rep ( not the central office), they might hook you up for $25, real broadband plus basic tv access. That's what I have now.
  12. I was using the latest version with no problems until the Kmeleon project stopped working with it. I no longer use it and am forced to "chubby" configuration with 98 Explorer.
  13. I see. W95 shell under W98. The SH95UPD description says "This project implements functions not found in the windows 95 shell .. SH95UPD is based on the KernelEX project, and is basically a stripped down version of KernelEX". To me, this implied a KernelEx-ish equivalent for W95. So Tihiy's comment about "make SH95UPD a bit obsolete" made me wonder if KernelEx was now compatible with W95 (it has been previously stated by Xeno86 that it isn't). However, if SH95UPD isn't actually a KernelEx-ish equivalent for W95, then we can conclude that KernelEx continues not to support W95. (And I'd also better stop referring W95 users to SH95UPD.) Joe. SH95UPD uses the same technology as KernelEx to add or overwrite entries for the OS functions that are missing in the older components. It does not duplicate the functions of KX, it just allows the use of W95 shell with W98 OS. It may help some programs that only run on 98 to run on 95 if the missing functions happen to be the ones it replaces, but it won't allow XP programs to run on 95. Basically, it adds a few common functions that are found in the 98 shell to the 95 shell.
