  1. Thanks PROBLEMCHYLD ! and I apologize for not having made a sufficient search. Here is your original report: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/159027-modified-sysdmcpl-4903001-for-98se/?page=5#comment-1036689
  2. Thx PROBLEMCHYLD!, it could a great idea for everyone but I have already done my own upgrade. BTW, in my registry I have those 2 keys: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\USB] "SilentInstall"="1" "SilentInstallNotify"="1" They came from the nusb.inf of Nusb 3.6e: ; Silent Driver Install HKLM,System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\USB,"SilentInstall",,"1" HKLM,System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\USB,"SilentInstallNotify",,"1"
  3. Hi PROBLEMCHYLD, is your Registry fix to add: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\USB] "SilentInstall"="1" or is it more?
  4. My bad I thought it was a new version because of the upgraded number.
  5. Hi, This has been solved since 'Unofficial Win98SE SP 3.22': http://www.htasoft.com/u98sesp/ when SYSDM.CPL was updated to version http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/163198-it-works/#comment-1041806 https://www.techtalk.cc/viewtopic.php?p=566#p566
  6. Hi Brooke's Tommy Honey, you have a french page on this very subject here: http://win9x4ever.online.fr/index.php/dossiers-et-tutos/65-utiliser-un-ecran-large-avec-windows-9x Try to read it with Google Translate (If needed, I could try to help you)
  7. Seen here?: http://kernelex.sourceforge.net/wiki/Mozilla_Firefox Firefox 11 installs and runs unmodified on KernelEx systems, but are slow and have noticeable rendering glitches.Firefox 12 freezes after a few seconds.Firefox versions 13 and higher cause an error in MSVCR100.dll and don't start.
  8. New version 0.1.5 of Easy 7-Zip still working fine here with Compatibility set to Win 2000 SP4 in KernelEx 4.5.2 (Portable version tried). Changes log: Moves codes to 7-Zip 15.06 beta Release Date September 7, 2015
  9. Same thing here! You only need to manually add the extension in "Object name", after you have selected the file type. KernelEx is in default compatibility.
  10. I have sent a feedback and request to FastStone. BTW, on their homepage, it is mentioned: 'All products work on XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x and Windows 10' but if you compare with the last snapshot from Wayback Machine (mars 30, 2015, with FastStone Image Viewer version 5.3) you get: 'All products work on Windows 98, ME, XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8' so the bad news may be that they already know about that...
  11. Do you suggest that we should tell (ask) them about it? Do you think they would make case of such vintage OSes?
  12. I have already tried to disable KEx extensions (but not uninstall), or disable KernelEx for the Child processes, disable custom heap, as well as several other specific compatibilities, but it doesn't help . BTW, once again it is the "support for unicode filenames throughout the software" that must have broken the 9x compatibility.
  13. No glitch here since the release (for what I've done). You're right Drugwash, there's a bug! (at least that one): open a jpg file (for instance) and try to save it in another format (gif or png), you can't access the Options button! My bad. I've try all possible settings of KEx specific compatibility mode, but it doesn't help I use the legacy KernelEx 4.5.2. That could be a good reason for me to try the jumper's 4.5.2015.9 update.
  14. Choose a Notepad replacement like one of the above, rename it 'Notepad.exe' and drop it in place of the original. You will enjoy the 'good old Notepad' with so many more features metapad for this purpose is very light in one file, that means fast. You could even use a reg patch to open any non-associated file in Notepad by default.
  15. Indeed Akelpad is very impressive. I will give it a further exploration.
  16. Yeah, Unicode is a always a challenge in Win 9x. That's why I was already glad of this tiny improvement of metapad in UTF-8....
  17. Hi Drugwash, Yes, it is what I did, but you don't need to recompile, everything can be done from inside Resource Hacker. If you want check with my language Dll, you will see: Français (French) for Metapad 3.6 The translated "all-in-one" exe has been uploaded here: Metapad v 3.6 (Fr) (same result but with one file). You are right, I was notifying it in my previous post #6. But still, metapad is a very nice program to use in Win9x, with a bunch of features for his light weight.
  18. FastStone Image Viewer goes in version 5.4 So far so good with default compatibility in KEx 4.5.2 [sorry, compatibility is broken with Win9x. See below.] Version 5.4 (July 31, 2015): Added support for unicode filenames throughout the software. Now you can view and process images named in different types of characters (e.g. Arabic, Chinese, Greek, Japanese, Korean, Russian ...)Added support for symbolic linksImproved Batch Convert, Crop Board and Draw BoardMany other improvements and bug fixesDetails: http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm Download: http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDownload.htm Enjoy.
  19. metapad is awesome. It has much more features than any one else of those lightweight notepad replacement! BTW if you use the Dll language plugin, you need to indicate its complete path in metapad which changes constantly if you run metapad on an USB key. So, I have translated directly the exe file with Resource Hacker (and a few more strings in an hexadecimal editor) to get metapad in my own language with only 1 file.
  20. And something more is that this file can had fail in a plain vanilla Win 98 but be active when KernelEx is installed...
  21. No antivirus at all here for years and years, and never had any problem surfing. They are slowing too much on old PC. (Only using ZA 5.5, proper configuration and passive protections like Hosts file, ActiveX killbits, ...) I really wonder if it is possible to any current malware to recognize such legacy OS as Win9x and infect it.
  22. Thanx jumper. You should update the first post of this thread to link to Release.9.7z and those source.
  23. Resource Hacker version 4.0.0 just released (2 May 2015)! I've unpacked the setup exe (it's an Inno setup) and it is running just fine in Win 98 SE! The settings are written in a local file: RESHACKER.ini Changes List: What's new in 4.0.0 version: Main changes include better displaying of images (esp. 32-bit images) Now allows creating RES files from scratch (including template dialog, menu, string table, version and manifest resources) Numerous cosmetic improvements Enjoy! EDIT: from the same source: People who want to use a portable version of Resource Hacker, just install it using the setup file give below and after installation, copy "Resource Hacker" folder from "C:\Program Files" folder to any other desired location like another drive, USB stick, etc and you are ready to enjoy the portable version. LATER EDIT: I was wrong. Cursors are NOT displayed in this new version. I've tried to set Kernel Ex 4.5.2 to a specific compatibility, but it doesn't help .
  24. +1 ... and BTW thx to the wonderful people helping here all those projects! GhostlyDeath if you actually want to help, stop with your requirement and legal threats, and politely offer your assistance, ...it won't harm you
  25. +1 I fully agree with you Drugwash: even last version of FastStone Image Viewer is running perfectly in Win 98SE (& KernelEx ?) and is wonderful to deal with pics. It is indeed my first program to scan. My scanner EPSON Perfection1200U was seen at once.
