Ahh, thanks for the head's up. It's definitely the ntkern.vxd file that is different between the two. The other thing I noticed is that it's like the computer can't load the drivers for the USB Network adapters with the patch in place. It's like that version of the .vxd doesn't contain the commands for talking to a network card or something strange like that. I should probably read through the rest of this thread to see if I can figure something out... This problem is essentially going to go away in about 6 months, but it'd be nice to have a fix out there. The computer in question is attached to a Scanning Electron Microscope and has a lot of specialized cards installed, leaving us with only USB networking... but it'd be really nice if we could get data off the machine with a flash drive. Thanks again! I'm glad to see that people still check this thread out.
Have you installed the correct package for Win98FE? NUSB3.3 is for 98SE and NUSB3.2 is for 98FE. See post#350 in this thread by PassingBy, the creator of the 98FE version. Direct download at http://www.mdgx.com/spx/NUSB98FE.EXE HTH Thanks for the reply. I did make sure to download the FE package yesterday, so I'm pretty confident that I got the right one. Further, it did actually work -- it let me plug in a USB mass storage device which I could read/write to. It's just that the USB network adapters stop working, and I need 'em.
I've run into a problem with this wonderful driver package. After I install it, my USB network adapters stop working. I have a Win98 FE machine that has all of its PCI slots full. Installing the USB Driver makes usb flash drives work, but the ntkern.vxd included doesn't work with either my linksys usb200m or a d-link of similar fashion. Neither device loads and the problem goes away when I use sfc to restore ntkern.vxd... but then flash drives don't load. Is there a solution to this? Thanks for the support over the years! Just having this ability is awesome. Oh yeah -- as a note, this machine is connected to a domain, if that makes a difference.
