  1. With 1.5, I added a newer Explorer.exe in the service pack. It was from IE 5.01 SP2. I think the reason of the problem is that Explorer.exe. The version 2.0 will not contain Explorer.exe. So, this bug will probably be fixed by the 2.0.
  2. So the version 2.0 will not contain any Notepad replacement. However, there was a modified version original Notepad (which has more key-bindings) in the 1.x, I think we don't need this, too.
  3. I think lots of users don't need these new icons. So I think I can remove this feature. What do you think? In 1.x, new icons were from Windows 2000.
  4. There is a patch for this issue. But it's not free: High Capacity Disk Patch
  5. hi charlieb, Maybe your file is corrupted. Please, download the file again from a different mirror.
  6. ssmokee, SP -doesn't- touch any IE file, if you have IE 6.0 or 5.5. If you have IE 5.0, it -only- installs/upgrades some IE 5.0 files. 98lite keeps some IE files on the system. If these files are from IE 5.0, SP only upgrades these files. It never installs any new file, if you don't have related software. Version 2.0 still works with 98lite Chubby, and it will probably work with Sleek, too.
  7. It contains only IE 5.0 updates. However, installer checks the version number of the files, so if you have newer IE, it doesn't copy any of these files.
  8. I'm looking for a good Notepad replacement for the new version (2.0). This notepad replacement must be small and must read files with file sizes greater than 32KB. It also must support different languages. I have found four good Notepad replacement: NotepadEx TED Notepad MetaPad Win32Pad Which one do you prefer?
  9. OK, TweakUI is a good idea. It will be in the 2.0.
  10. Hi prathapml, Silent installation is possible on 1.x versions. You should use /Q switch like other Win98 updates. For 2.0, I'm not sure about the silent installation now. However, I hope 2.0 will contain a stable slipstreaming support.
  11. Adding Windows ME files is not allowed. It requires Windows ME license.

  13. Yes, like XP. But the picture resolution is very low, so this logo is not as nice as XP.
  14. At this time Windows 98 / 98 SE does not natively support 137GB drives. However, there are some 3rd party utilities that will allow you to see the full capacity of the drive once the operating system has been installed (no support for installing to a full size partition). Software Driver Updates (800 Series Intel Chipsets Only) The Intel Application Accelerator (IAA) adds 48-bit LBA support for the 800 series Intel chipsets. Software Driver Updates (Non-Intel Chipsets) VIA has drivers which support 48-bit LBA for their chipsets. Scandisk The version of Scandisk that comes with Windows 98 / 98 SE does not support partitions larger than 137 GB.
  15. If you want a different logo for your Windows 98/98 SE system, you can use these attached logos. First logo was made by AngelBlue01, and it is a modified version of original Windows 98 boot logo. It adds "Second Edition" label. Second logo was made by Aleksandar Dlabac, and it is a Windows XP-like boot logo. Both logos are animated. For installing, only you need copy LOGO.SYS into your root (C:\) directory. For uninstalling, simply delete LOGO.SYS.
  16. If you have problem with Windows Update after installing version 1.6.2, you must run these commands (from Start-Run): regsvr32 wintrust.dll regsvr32 cryptdlg.dll regsvr32 rsaenh.dll
  17. Hi all, I'm the author of the Unofficial Windows 98 SE Service Pack. Unofficial Win98 SE SP Web Site I need a forum page/section for my unofficial service pack. Now I'm working on the next version (2.0), and I need feedback from users. Also I want to release some beta on the forum only. Can you help me? Thanks!
