  1. On some of my machines ME doesn't boot, if HT is enabled. I think it depends on the motherboard/BIOS.
  2. The "onboard IDE operate mode" must set to compatible in BIOS, because ME only supports four IDE devices (Enhanced Mode = six devices). Hyperthreading (HT) (CPU feature) can cause a problem, too. ME doesn't support HT. Make sure, that HT is disabled in BIOS. And check the BIOS ACPI/APIC settings. Something like "ACPI 2.0" must be disabled.
  3. Hallo Thunderbolt 2864, assuming the X1250 (RS600) is a X700, I added the X1250 graphics to the inf file of ATI Catalyst Display Driver (Windows 98/Me) Version: 6.2 (02/09/2006). If you like you can test it for your own risk. Try a manual installation or replace the original "C8 inf" with the new one. I can't test it. X1250.zip
  4. I had checked the Display driver "VGA Driver Ati 8.33.zip". It isn't for 9x/ME. The installer doesn't work and the inf file signature is Windows NT. Inf file size: 108KB
  5. What is your default menu font? Try to change it (Tahoma Western). Do you have RP installed?
  6. I haven't installed IrfanView and RegCompact.
  7. Did you try "Process Viewer" or "WinTop" (Win95 Kernel PowerToys)? I've no problems on ME. The Process Explorer works with KernelEX up to 11.33 and without KEX up to version 11.11 for me.
  8. Make sure that MMSYS.CPL (399KB, 08 June 2000) is in your system folder.
  9. All about the Universal VESA/VBE Video Display Driver VBEMP 9x here. I guess you have one of these boards: GA-MA69GM-S2H or GA-MA69G-S3H. Both have a PCI-E slot. Probably it's the only solution, to run 98 natively, to insert a graphics card with 9x driver support. The ATI driver 6.2 supports up to X8xx series. Nvidia: The official drivers support up to NV6xxx series. But note the shutdown issue with drivers Nvidia 81.85 and higher and the problems with graphics cards, which have more than 256MB. Unofficial NV drivers support up to NV7xxx.
  10. µTorrent: Uninstalling of the Fritz Firewall (SARAH.DLL) doesn't work and the crash dump file is still empty. Opera (comp. mode Win 2000): Opera 12.5 build 1513 is the latest version that works for me, of course without plugins. If I add "[iPHLPAPI.DLL]GetAdaptersAddresses=r120s5" in the ini file, Opera build 1546 starts, but I get the internal connection error. Build 1577 and higher versions crash on start. I didn't download every build. Crashlog of build 12.10 1615: crash.zip
  11. Does µTorrent 2.0 start or even load without the stub? What is the nature of the crash (is it silent or is there a message)? You can also try using the GetAdaptersAddresses (or whole IPHLPAPI.DLL) from 2K, XP, ReactOS, Wine, WildBill, or blackwingcat. Kstub822.log: = IPHLPAPI.DLL:GetAdaptersAddresses = 1. Without "[iPHLPAPI.DLL]GetAdaptersAddresses=r120s5" µTorrent 2.0.4 works fine. Prompt: No combination works. (GetAdaptersAddresses=) 2. Message: screenshot The crash dump dmp file is empty. 3. Whole IPHLPAPI.DLL of Wild Bill in the system folder: µTorrent starts and runs.
  12. I also had tried to change comp. mode of the ImportPatcher.exe to see what happens. It was a bad idea. I had to reinstall KernelEX. So I have to set the comp. mode of the app only.
  13. With "[iPHLPAPI.DLL]GetAdaptersAddresses=r120s5" in the ini file µTorrent 2.0 crashes on start.
  14. I extracted the package with Universal Extractor on an XP machine. submix8c is right, all of the .INF files have "Signature="$Windows NT{:content:}quot;" and the package makes no mention of 9x/ME anywhere inside. However... It looks like all this package (and the last working package for 9x) contains is a bunch of .INF and .CAT files. Unless I'm missing something here, all one should have to do is modify the .INF's to be 9x-compatible (as xrayer has done), because the only purpose they are serving is to specifically identify the devices on the motherboard. I'm not seeing any .SYS files or the like that would require Windows 2K/XP for compatibility. The real problem would seem to be finding drivers for video, sound, ethernet, and other integrated devices that actually have driver files other than .INF's. (Or am I REALLY missing something here?? ) ICH8 Update for xrayer's driver. Unfortunately I can't test it. I added Q963, Q/P/G965 to the "945.inf" file and 925X/XE to the "915.inf file". I hope somebody check it out. I really can't say if it works. I haven't such a board. I had forgotten the ICH8 SMBus Controller. I added it on Wednesday the 21. November 2012. Ich8.zip
  15. Hallo ragnargd, xrayer's driver supports ICH7 chipsets 945/946/975/955/31/41. He added driver for ICH10 chipsets, but it can be that the driver doesn't work correctly. I've tested successfully the driver for G31, G41, i945. The intel onboard graphics and sound aren't supported by the driver.
  16. Curious if there's anything special to be done to use the bearwindows VBEM. Make sure, that you have a clean uninstall of Nvidia or ATI drivers => driver cleaner 1.5 build 14. Bearwindows: "Before installing VBEMP.DRV I recommend removing any display drivers installed and switching to the standard VGA mode 640x480x16colors." I now have this hooked up to a wide screen monitor (16:9), but all the resolutions I can choose are 4:3. Is there a way to fix that? Is there a way to get the command prompt and other command line Windows to work without having to be full screen? Sorry, I never tested wide screen on WinME/98. Which resolutions you can choose? AFAIK the Nvidia driver 82.69 supports wide screen.
  17. Some printing tests with Kext and ComDlgKs.dll installed: Sumatra pdf => OK Firefox 8 and 9 => a lot of print jobs have perfomed correct (especially text contents), but others fail with an error message or the print is incomplete. Usually these versions don't crash in order to print.
  18. There's no official driver and xrayer's driver doesn't support intel chipsets G/P/Q965 and ICH8. It's your risk to buy this board. You can check it out and tell us your results. I looked in the manual of P5B-DE (P5D-DE not found): AMI Bios, Storage Configuration: It's possible to set the compatible mode for legacy OS (4 devices).
  19. Hello Steven W There isn't a WinME/98 driver for your onboard graphics Intel GMA 950 (VEN_8086&DEV_2772&SUBSYS_1B761019&REV_02). You could try the bearwindows VBEMP 9x driver, but you said that the device isn't listed in your Device Manager. Did you already have looked in the System Information MSInfo32 for Components / Problem Devices? => ACPI Problem? What about PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2771.DeviceDesc="Intel® 945G/GZ/P/PL PCI Express Root Port - 2771"? I 've successfully installed the chipset driver (windows98.ic.cz) on different systems, but of course with PCIE graphics card. For example Fujitsu-Siemens D2156 A1, (i945G) and ATIX800XL (I've to disable HyperThreading on this machine). Known problem: Shutdown issue with Nvidia cards. My little problem with all those systems, that I can't install a USB printer. I can't get a virtual port. I've successfully installed it on systems with i865 and i915 boards.
  20. Astra32 froze the system: You can try to disable the detection of some components using Settings (Troubleshooting) button in the start-up window. Find and uncheck the culprit always worked for me.
  21. See post of desga2 Date: January 02, 2011 link
  22. Opera 12.02 build 1578 is now released. Changelog: The Windows 32-bit version has been reverted to in-process plugins while stability issues stemming from the out-of-process plugin system are investigated and resolved.
  23. Firefox 13 - 15 doesn't start (comp. mode XP). Firefox causes an error in MSVCR100.dll. Kstub822.log: = Kernel32.dll:InitializeSListHead=f1 =
  24. Kstub822.log: = IPHLPAPI.DLL:GetAdaptersAddresses=r120s5 = ( in order to start Opera 1546) Today I defragmented with Diskeeper. A bit strange: Opera 1546 crashed on start, if DK is installed. After removing Opera has started again. Yesterday I checked out to paste the iphlpapi.dll of Wild Bill's patched MS11-020 into the system folder and commented out in the Kstub822.ini ";GetAdaptersAddresses=r120s5". Opera crashed on start. Tomorrow I can send the crashlog.
