FYI #2: All project authors, creators + maintainers: Please do *not* create a new forum topic/thread every time you update your project(s) or whenever you post a new update/edition/build/release/version/etc. This way all pinned/"stickified" ones will *always* be listed here. Instead, I suggest [if you are the topic creator] you: - edit + update the 1st post of each topic; - add the date + the new version/build [if appropriate] into each topic subtitle; to let every1 know when/why you posted a new update/edition/build/release/version/etc. But if for any reason you need to create a new topic, please PM me with the new URL so I can add it to this list. Thanks for understanding, and keep up your outstanding work. Enjoy.

    Error with winME scandisk on 98SE ...

    keropi666 told me SCANFRAG.EXE dskmaint.dll from Win98 SE has errors with newer/larger HDDs. So I updated SCANFRAG.EXE to include both files... http://www.mdgx.com/files/scanfrag.php File [1.12 MB]: http://www.mdgx.com/files/SCANFRAG.EXE Install will use by default the newer DLL from WinME, the one from Win98 SE is found as DSKMAINT.D98 (DLL renamed to D98).

    Win98 in the news

    See this: http://www.techspot.com/news/41988-windows-98-traffic-higher-than-windows-phone-7-traffic.html ... and my comment @ #20 [sorry, I couldn't resist ;-)]: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic159693.html Have fun. ;-)

    Question about emm386.exe

    X=yyyy-zzzz memory address ranges (can be more than 1 X= switches on the same EMM386.EXE line) exclusion is necessary to make sure the operating system (DOS, Windows 9x) doesn't use by accident the same range(s) used by certain hardware devices/peripherals/cards. Such devices use preset (built-in, hard-coded) memory ranges when your PC boots, and in most cases nothing can change that. You just need to make sure DOS (and implicitly Windows 9x) and software applications/drivers/TSRs/processes/etc do not use the same ranges, to avoid lockups/errors/data loss. All these memory addresses are in the upper memory area (UMA): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Upper_memory_area More details in REGIONS.TXT, part of my tips files archive (freeware): http://mdgx.com/95.htm To see a generic map of what uses which ranges, please see REGIONS.TXT, the "2. Conventional Memory: below the 1st MegaByte" section, and also the "III. MDGx ADDENDUM = UPPER MEMORY REGIONS MANAGEMENT" section (bottom of file). Please look also at at MEMORY.TXT (part of my tips files archive) under the "I. My CONFIG.SYS Lines Explained" section for more details. MSKB article: http://support.microsoft.com/?id=112816 Run this command from a DOS box to see all emm386.exe available switches: HELP EMM386.EXE and see also the undocumented ones, if you wish: http://www.mdgx.com/secrets.htm#EMM EMM386.EXE switches are also detailed in your MSDOSDRV.TXT file, found in %windir% (installed by Win9x), or online: http://support.microsoft.com/?id=234868 You can use the MSD command in either native DOS (recommended) or from a DOS box (not recommended, adds memory ranges used by Win9x OS memory manager) to view the UMA layout. The areas used by hardware devices are coded with the letter R (reserved) or U (used). MSD editions [free]: http://www.mdgx.com/speed.htm#MSD Just make sure an expanded memory manager (EMS) like EMM386.EXE is not loaded from your config.sys when you run MSD, otherwise most UMA areas will be in use by either EMM386 manager itself or its EMS page frame (marked with the letter P on the MSD screen) = page frame range can be changed to make sure it doesn't conflict (overlap) with memory areas used by some hardware device(s) => see the FRAME=xxxx-yyyy switch. MSD9X.TXT (from my tips files archive) has more details. To be safe, add this line to your SYSTEM.INI [found in %windir% = usually C:\WINDOWS] under the [386enh] section: This is found here:http://www.mdgx.com/lastweek.htm#SYSINI A000 (hex) is the bottom (lowest) address (where UMA starts), and FFFF (hex) is the top (highest) address (where UMA ends). This way, you can make sure the OS/software/etc will never use memory ranges which might otherwise in use by hardware devices. HTH
  11. Soon [in a few days] I'll have the new Q2416400 (MS10-090) IE 6.0 SP1 security fix [i'm still working on it, not enough spare time ;-(] posted here: http://www.mdgx.com/ietoy.htm#IEC The file name will be I2416400.EXE [Win98/98 SP1/98 SE/ME OSes], and the actual link will be [right now this link doesn't exist ;-)]: http://www.mdgx.com/files/I2416400.EXE I'll also have X2416400.EXE for Win2000/XP Pre-SP2, which is actually the unofficial Wild Bill's patch (http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=146529&st=2), available on MSFN forums.

    FYI... Guides for EMM386.EXE usage = download W95-11D.EXE or W95-11D.ZIP (freeware): http://www.mdgx.com/95.htm Install (exe) or extract (zip) the files, and then read these plain text files: MEMORY.TXT REGIONS.TXT EMM386.TXT [especially sections about expanded memory] Few more tips here: http://www.mdgx.com/newtip20.htm#9SMM 9x OSes SETUP switches: http://www.mdgx.com/last2.htm#SETUPSW HTH
  13. I've considered adding l3codec.ax, but it may be a while, I don't have enough spare time at the moment.98MP10 actually installs the ACM codec: L3CODECP.ACM, similar, but older [newer versions work only with WMP11/newer to my knowledge]. I will also update advpack.dll to newest build from XP SP3 [i've noticed it works properly with all 9x OSes]. About KB2416400 [Wild Bill's unofficial patch]: Installs IE 6.0 SP1 only files, those belong to a cumulative IE fix, which I'm working on right now [not done yet]. 98MP10 doesn't install any of those files.

  15. For my Win 98SE, "I2360131.EXE" extracted into the Windows\Temp folder but did not automatically install. Right-clicking the ".INF" file and clicking "Install" did the trick. Affirmative. I have the same thing.I have revised the fix, please install again, it should work properly now [2.22 MB]:http://www.mdgx.com/files/I2360131.EXE It installs now only on Windows 98/98 SP1/98 SE/ME. PS: Users of Windows 2000/XP Pre-SP2 must install this one instead [Wild Bill's unofficial patch] [2.56 MB]: http://www.mdgx.com/files/X2360131.EXE Thanks for all the feedback.
  16. While this might be true for the former update, the latest doesn't work with Win 98SE unmodified... I just tried and got two error boxes: ================== Error Starting Program The Windows2000-KB2416400-x86-ENU.exe file is linked to missing export NTDLL.DLL:NtShutdownSystem. ================== then: ================= Windows2000-KB2416400-x86-ENU.exe A device attached to the system is not functioning. ================= and the update was aborted. @MDGx: Please, MDGx, as soon as you have time, do create a 9x/ME enabled installer for it! Your wish is my command... ;-)http://www.mdgx.com/upd98me.php#010711'>http://www.mdgx.com/upd98me.php#010711 ... at least as far as concerning IE 6.0 SP1 fix: http://www.mdgx.com/files/I2360131.EXE ... and I kept the old one [WildBill original] which installs only on 2000/XP [renamed]: http://www.mdgx.com/files/X2360131.EXE I'm working on Windows2000-KB2416400-x86-ENU.exe .

Here is another example of a such false positive, reported back to me by another 98SE2ME user in 2009: That report was about this web page:http://www.mdgx.com/9s2m/read1st.php which is a plain HTML file with some PHP code (plain text) to render 98SE2ME's READ1ST.TXT (which is also plain text): http://www.mdgx.com/9s2m/READ1ST.TXT READ1ST.TXT is also part of 98SE2ME.EXE, and is copied into C:\9!M at install time. This 98SE2ME user sent an e-mail with the actual source code (read1st.php + READ1ST.TXT above) to that anti-virus company, and to my knowledge they added my web page + text file to their list of false positives. The solution is to test 98RESTOR.BAT for actual viruses (or/and the entire 98SE2ME installer + list of files installed into C:\9!M) by using other anti-virus engines [here is a list of popular online anti-virus scanners (free)]: http://www.mdgx.com/vir.htm#SS to confirm (validate) or refute (invalidate) this report. Then please send an e-mail to Avast including the source code. Also, you may want to update your anti-virus engine database with current virus signatures (if not already done it). Thanks a lot for your time and concern. Best wishes, MDGx

    Latest DirectX ?

    Sounds good, running even newer versions with KEX. ;-)But please keep in mind that certain newer, NTx-only functions do not work on 9x OSes, even with KEX (too many dependencies). KEX only provides compatibility for such executables, so they can run under 9x kernel/APIs without crashing or without displaying annoying error messages. PS: DX newer than December 2006 only has newer Managed DirectX (MDX) libraries, which is actually 1 file (D3DX9_xx.DLL = where xx represents build number) [enabled only with .NET Framework Redistributable installed, and used by very few apps + games], and those are not compatible with 9x OSes, although I presume [i have not tested] they will probably work (in compatibility mode) with KEX installed, but apps/games running on 9x OSes will not take advantage of newer MDX features [NTx only APIs are not implemented]. Last MDX edition compatible with 98/98 SE/ME is D3DX9_32.DLL build 9.16.843.0000 as of December 2006. Any newer MDX DLLs have APIs only for NTx OSes [starting with D3DX9_33.DLL]. Core APIs [DX 9.0c build 4.09.00.0904] are the same in all DX editions since 2004. More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DirectX#Releases HTH
  21. Some1 told me German modded shell32.dll is installed as part of SP2 2.1d + SP2 3.0 beta 4 (German editions). Thanks. ;-)So I posted the IEXpress installer here: http://www.mdgx.com/web.htm#9SU and here: http://www.mdgx.com/upd98me.php File [522 KB, German]. HTH

    Latest DirectX ?

    MPC-HC was designed stritcly for NTx OSes [2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008 + 7].To my knowledge 9x OSes DirectShow functions are not supported in MPC-HC. If using 98, 98 SP1, 98 SE or ME [9x OSes], you should use the last MPC version created specifically for those OSes. More MPC info. And if using MPC, make sure you already installed: - DirectX 9.0c: http://www.mdgx.com/dx.htm#DX9 - K-Lite Codec Package [last version for 98/98 SE/ME]: http://www.filehippo.com/download_klite_codec_pack/3194/ KLC installs MPC, but probably an older version. After having installed KLC, install newest MPC (above) in the same directory where KLC installed it (overwrite the EXE). HTH

    New old 2G file size bug

  25. The solution to this error message is to delete that registry value.But if that did not fix your problem, you may want to try something else... 1. Make sure you use Windows logged in as Administrator or sole owner [with administrative rights], or as part of the Administrators/Sysadmin group. 2. See this system restrictions guide: http://www.mdgx.com/newtip9.htm#RESTRICT and make sure your executables (.EXE files) and/or REG/VBS/HTA/INF scripts are not blocked from running on your computer. 3. Make sure you don't have any antivirus/trojan/malware/spyware "infestation". Clean it up if you do: http://www.mdgx.com/vir.htm#RMV HTH
