  1. What 2K/XP/Vista/ReactOS dll files and versions do you have in the system or system32 folders? Have you registered any? Or only a ServicePack? Is there anything that could be different in your system in contrast to others? A special Kexstub.ini? No ideas?
  2. This version requires Kext and at least msvcrt.dll of ME, better msvcr70.dll.
  3. First April s over. I tried to disable Javascript in Prefs.js (user_pref("javascript.enabled", false);). And I still can't start FF 24esr (portable). Message: Couldn't load XPCOM. I'm sure there must be more to do than set Kex to XPSP3.
  4. There are five backups by default listed by date. A backup is user.dat, system.dat and system files like system.ini and win.ini. It's possible to add more by scanreg.ini.
  5. A system reset had often helped me out of a tight spot: At DOS Prompt (F5) change direction from A: to C:. Type: C:\windows\Command\scanreg /restore , and choose a backup.
  6. Phantom Floppy? => try disable legacy usb support in BIOS
  7. Try to reinstall the msi: Rename in safe mode msihnd.dll, MSI.DLL and msiexec.exe. Reboot and install 2.0.2600.2 again. My files are set to Legacy Base enhancements (MSI.DLL and msiexec.exe ) and msihnd.dll to default comp options.
  8. There are fifteen files inside the installer.
  9. Both versions are available on originaldll.com: Unicode - http://originaldll.com/file/msiexec.exe/20500.html 9x/ME: http://originaldll.com/file/msiexec.exe/20487.html
  10. The file size of my msiexec is 83456 bytes. ( 26 January 2002 - 2.0.2600.2) http://originaldll.com/file/msiexec.exe/20487.html As far as I remember it is the one that was offered by MS for Win ME.
  11. As I said only a few apps or installer can be fooled with it, also on ME/98SE. Most programs also check the OS elsewhere.
  12. Open the Registry and create a new string value: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion] "CurrentVersion"="5.1" That applies to ME/98SE (KernelEx) and probably for 95, too. It might work for a few apps, but usually it makes no sense and leads to problems or crashes. I do not recommend that.
  13. Make sure you have Core Updates 4.5.2016.18 or higher. Don't use update 17. Otherwise maybe a missing dll.
  14. thanks! what about Marvell cntrls? there was big problem - ahci driver make system unbootable if found any Marvell... its ver 3.0, which i already has tested. problem remain... I tried the AHCI Driver 3.0 on a Asus P5B (i P965/ICH8) three weeks ago. Afterwards ME wasn't bootable anymore. But, it was just one test so far. I plan to have a closer look soon. It might be that I had done something wrong.
  15. A little feedback: Today I updated to 24 on a second machine. New problems have not yet occurred, however so far I haven't done extensive program tests.
