  1. The problem is not coming from the service pack. I just made a new installation and added nothing but KernelEx 4.5.2 to it. Old versions of XMplay worked fine then, including the crash test I set up, no invalid page fault error or that "corrupt data" message. Then I upgraded vanilla KernelEx 4.5.2 to the release 17 and the old XMplay versions stop working and the crash test starts crashing so the problem is definitely introduced by updated KernelEx.
  2. I use bunch of Winamp plugins with XMplay due to lack of native plugins for those particular formats and there are some that require help from KernelEx. I also tried some older versions of XMplay and versions 3.4.1 to 3.5.1 crashed with an invalid page fault on startup unless extensions are disabled. With vanilla 4.5.2 they run fine. Versions starting with 3.6 work fine up to the very latest one, I haven't tired any of the older versions to see how far back the particular problem goes.
  3. Allo ! It seems that one XMPLAY plugin to allow RAR compressed files use is broken since at least Release 4 on my machine with Win ME + RP9.7.2 + the new service pack, same configuration works properly with vanilla KEX 4.5.2. I tested 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 16 and 17 and with all of them the program dies with "corrupt data!" message after which it enters into endless invalid page fault error box throwing state, unkillable by any means so you got to do a hard reset to the machine in order for it to be shut down. Vanilla 4.5.2 has the program working fine without any sort of problems. I removed Kstub822 for testing purposes and it made no difference. All versions were tested by restoring Kex to 4.5.2 prior to updating the relevant files of each release. Disabling KEX extensions on the program would allow the plugin to work but since there are other plugins that do require KEX that isn't an option, also enabling ANY compatibility mode will cause the program to exhibit the problem. I ended up looking for any possible updated version of the plugin and there is one which does work without problems, but that still won't address that there seems to be some sort of problem in the updated KEX that might affect other programs. Here's an archive that contains the problem combination for debugging/analysis : http://www.tmeeco.eu/Fileden/XMPLAYcrash.RAR Nearly all other programs used on that machine seem to work without any surprises. (The one that doesn't won't work with Kex4.5.2 either so no discussion about it will happen here as per rules of this topic). Thänk you for all this great work ~
  4. Windows ME Service Pack

    Allo ! After a long abscence of Win9x stuff I kind of return. I'm very happy to see WinME getting some love and this Service Pack is great. I'd like to report a bug though, some component in the service pack seems to assume Windows directory being "C:\WINDOWS" and I saw an error at some point during the installation on my setup where Windows is installed into "C:\WINME". Unfortunately I cannot give any more details than that. The USB safer removal problem got fixed by restoring original SETUPAPI.DLL file, that also fixed a problem with Windows showing inaccessible drive error on a blue screen when restarting or shutting down after you had removed a memory card from an USB reader. Does the service pack restore MS-DOS boot ? It would be a nice addition if it doesn't, I even wrote a small patching tool that I use on my machines to stop REGENV32.EXE from wiping AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS and I won't have issues with it being used in the service pack.
  5. Painfully Slow Network Speeds

    Get a program called TCPoptimizer and use it to conf up stuff, you will get drastic improvement in network related stuff. Only way I could get most out of my 400Mbit connection. Also required for win XP.
  6. Whoa ! Been out for a while and I return to some wonderful things
  7. Internal reader is 2K+ only. I need CF support so I use USB reader instead anyway.
  8. Skype 6.1 on Windows 2000

    Older versions are artificially blocked by version check. You can patch the version number reported and get things to work. ------ When autologin is enabled Skype stores a certificate in the profile folder which is used for logon, and it lasts 30 days. To get one month of login ability you would want to install latest version that can log in (6.15 I think, I never determined the point where restriction is set), log in with autologon enabled and then install older version on top. The older version can logon now until cert runs out or you log out yourself. I have been using this on XP though, so I can run 6.0 which actually works, the latest ones have memory leaks and very occasional freezing making their use near impossible... Lot of cool info ~~~~ http://skype-open-source.blogspot.com.au/
  9. Here's a mirror : http://www.tmeeco.eu/9X4EVER/GOODIES/XUSBSUPP2.ZIP I'll give it a test sometime when I mess around with win95 on my P225 machine.
  10. Laptop wifi card with 98 support.

    Word of warning : The util replaces IPHLPAPI.DLL for something newer/different and it breaks a ton of programs that KernelEx can make work such as Foxit Roader. I don't have compatible hardware but I was interested in trying out the util. After uninstall it does not restore the original file. I had to extract it from windows install CD.
  11. File unable to be deleted

    Have you tried DEL *.INI from command prompt ? And are the scandisk settings set to look for invalid and/or duplicate names : http://tinyurl.com/p6yszqq

    Aaaand new version available here aswell : http://www.tmeeco.eu/9X4EVER/GOODIES/RP9_Skin_collection_v4.rar
  13. Windows ME networking troubles

    I found TWO half fixes : 1. Change link speed from Auto to 10half/10full/100half/100full in card driver settings page. 2. Enable file sharing from network control panel. By half I mean I no longer have to browse to the shares or access unprotected share first, but I do have to go to the already found share from the network places icon. Shortcuts on desktop or elsewhere do not seem to work on first try... but sometimes they do... This stuff is not working. Just maybe once out of 10 reboots... I managed to gather a bunch of versions of the driver, one even newer than the one on broadcom site ! I will be going through them one by one and hope one of them actually works. EDIT: Oldest driver I found works consistently across multiple reboots. I shall try the newer ones and report back the point where things seem to break ! EDIT2: The oldest I found is the only one that actually works. Version 6.64.0.0 works, next one I found which is 7.35.00 does not, nor do 8.27.1.0, 10.24.0.0 (one on Broadcom site) and 10.26.0.0.
  14. Stability is not a problem, with the current unofficial service pack. I don't remember when I last had an OS crash or BSOD or something. And when I do get them it is always hardware/driver related, and that also applies to XP+ in my cases.
