    Bugs of SP 2.0.2

    Because of the installation method, it's difficult to create a good uninstaller. But, I'm working on it. I hope I'll make a better uninstaller on the next version. It is not "Theme of Win 2000", it is "Win 2000 Color Scheme"... So, in fact, it's not a bug. But you're right about that Win 2000 icons also should be optional. I'm working on it now, too.

    Win98SE SP2 Modem problem

    redwingtech, Could you try to re-install your (latest) modem drivers? Also, please don't miss Roving's post.

    98 SE SP 2.0.2

    Tihiy made an unofficial patch for this problem. Maybe you can apply it? Link. Please let us the result...

    98 SE SP 2.0.2

    Please check Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs. I included a seperate uninstaller for Q891711 in the SP 2.0+. If this doesn't help, maybe I can make Q891711 as an seperate option on the next version.
  5. nLite does NOT support Windows 98/98SE. On the other hand, you can slipstream SP2. Please look at this post. To slipstream native USB drivers, you can use INFINST.EXE. It is a very simple tool, and it is in the your Windows 98 CD's \TOOLS\RESKIT\INFINST directory.

    98 SE SP 2.0.2

    I also believe that adding these files to your next SP 2.x release would be a good idea. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Thanks MDGx, [where is the erpdude8? ] This new HTML Help update looks like causes problem with old IE versions. Please, check this link. About unofficial fixes, I'll add them in the next version, but they'll be optional.

    Taskbar auto hide bug?

    I think original EXPLORER.EXE also works well. For 256-color tray icons, please look at this link.

    Low memory message

    Please check your free HDD space. You should have at least 40-50 MB free space on your HDD. Also close all open (+trayed) programs before installing the pack.

    98 SE SP 2.0.2

    I have checked my change log between 2.0 RC1 and 2.0.2, but I didn't see anything that may cause this problem. Please try Fredledingue's opinion, and let us the result.

    Alternatively you can check md5sum of the file. I wrote it on the my web page, and on the first post of the this topic.

    Taskbar auto hide bug?

    Probably, this problem is in the EXPLORER.EXE. If you try to revert back to the original EXPLORER.EXE, it should be fixed.

    MISC | SiS Chipset drivers?

    FYI: I have a SiS based mainboard (Asus TUSI-M). It works OK with original XP SP2 SiS IDE drivers, but my CD-ROM's DMA feature cannot be activated with it. After installing latest IDE drivers from SiS (2.04a), it works very well, I can activate DMA feature of the CD-ROM, and I think these drivers has also better performance.

    98 SE SP 2.0.2

    They're optional. Also, you can easily delete them. (Just delete: C:\LOGO.SYS and C:\WINDOWS\LOGOW.SYS).

    including drivers in Windows 98 setup

    You can use InfInst.exe from Windows 98 CD.
  18. Great! Now SP has very professional looking logos B)

    98 SE SP 2.0.2

    I have attempted to upgrade to Windows ME and realized I lost my product key. I aborted the installation but my version has been changed to that of Windows ME. What can I do to correct this besides a format and re-install? Thanks in advance. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> This is a strange situation. I think the version of the Windows is in the USER.EXE, USER32.DLL or KERNEL32.DLL. Please, check these files' versions.

    Service Pack 2.0.2 - UNINSTALL ?

    Did you read the installation guide before installing the pack? You must close all open programs before installing the pack. Could you check that: Has your MSDOS.SYS (which is in the root folder) "SystemReg=0" line. If it doesn't exist, please add it. You didn't see "SP" in the Add/Remove Programs, because Registry Checker has restored your registry to the older version.

    98 SE SP 2.0.2

    ATTRIB's function is done by INF installers in 2.0.2. FIND should be already installed as default. So, there is no need to keep them. Probably you have Windows ME (4.90.3000), not 98 SE (4.10.2222).

    What's the JVIEW profiler bug?

    98 SE SP 2.0.2

    Yes, but what's the problem? Thanks for the info. Minor problem. Excalibur007 (who is a MSFN member) has prepared the logo.

    Using SP on other language

    Probably, It will work. Because some Spanish users reported that they can use SP on their Spanish Win 98 SE.
