  1. Hi all, I think I maybe forgetting things..... Is there or do we know if there is a "Master Update List" of the software Install order before we use Gape's update to Win98se? I know I have seen some lists of the install order, but they seem old now. I just wanted to know if there is a newer List posted. (Directx9.0c, IE6,MDAC, Jet, etc) Thanks.
  2. Welcome back Gape!!! We were all getting concerned. I'm glad you are getting better. No reason to rush into things. With the new year I would take your time and enjoy everything! As always, thanks for all your hard-work in making this awesome SP for us Windows 98se users.
  3. Here is a site that offers a Free Screensaver. This particular Screensaver is called: Mediator Screensaver. Located at: http://www.axogon.com/en/meditator.html Here is the description from the web page. This company is also the creator the awesome program called MainVision 1.1 sold by Mainvision. - - - - - - - - - Description Axogon Meditator is a Windows® screensaver that fills screen with strange and amazing patterns of living colors. You will say 'Ahh!' every time you come back to your pc with this screen saver working. The main features are: * Breath-taking patterns Patterns and colors change constantly and never recur. * Configurable look and behaviour You can change complexity, dynamics and mirroring options. * Windows® 95/98/ME/NT/2K/XP support Supports all PC Windows versions, all types of processors starting from 200MHz. * It's free! It was developed as freeware. --------------------------- Check this fine piece of software out! I use it all the time. It uses the same engine from Mainvision 1.1 to create the patterns.
  4. eidenk, You mentioned: "You should also update MPG4DS32.AX to at least version 7.10.0.3069 (from WM324178.exe) and dxmasf.dll to 6.4.7.1121 (from WM320920_64.exe or WM308567.exe) and strmdll.dll to 4.1.0.3925 (from WMSU47357.exe) That's only for 6.4 and might not be totally accurate as I might I have missed an update or another. For 7.1 they will yet be some other files to update I believe." All three of these files are for WMP 6.1 only? I searched for MPG4DS32.AX and it appears there is a version 8.0.0.4487. This is for the Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec. Is there a complete update package for 7.1 player? When I searched for the MPG4DS32.AX file, it was not on a M$ page so I'm not sure where this v 8.0.0.4487 is coming from. I'm wondering what the best Codecs are for WMP 7.1 or 6.4 to play MPEG-4,AVI,DivX, etc. I have several Codecs already but it now seems that even DivX is not making any further updates for Win98 users.
  5. Thanks everyone for that update. I was not aware of the issue with KB828026. Thanks: the guy, eidenk and erpdude8! I'll download and archive that Patch and 6.4 CAB file right now. On a side note, is the IE5.5SP2 still available for download anywhere? Of course M$ removed that option to download the files. Many thanks.
  6. Quick question regarding Windows Media Player 6.4, 7.1 or 9 Series for Microsoft Windows Millennium (KB828026) update posted from Microsoft. Does anyone know if the files listed for ME (Msdxm.ocx & Wmpcore.dll) works under Win98se correctly? Windows Media Player 7.1 Date Time Version Size File name Operating system ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 17-Sep-2003 16:01 6.4.9.1128 844,048 Msdxm.ocx Windows 2000 17-Sep-2003 22:13 7.10.0.3075 815,104 Wmpcore.dll Windows 2000 24-Sep-2003 21:18 6.4.7.1128 845,072 Msdxm.ocx Windows Millennium Edition 24-Sep-2003 21:18 7.10.0.3075 815,104 Wmpcore.dll Windows Millennium Edition I still prefer using Media Player 7.1 over 9.
  7. Great Job hp38guser for providing the Windows Update v4 Windows 98SE Prerequistes. This information is extremely helpful. Thanks also to erpdude8 for the updated High Encryption pack for Internet Explorer links! Many thanks to Gape for providing this awesome UNOFFICIAL Windows98 SE Service Pack. This is truly a great service. As a side note, it seems that Microsoft is not willing to provide me with some recent updates on their system for Windows 98se. I'll have to wait until the next version of 98 SE SP comes out.
  8. The DirectX 9.0c Redistributable for Software Developers - Multilingual DOES work with Windows 98se users. The Link: lhttp://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=9226A611-62FE-4F61-ABA1-914185249413&displaylang=en still shows Windows 98se as a valid system. Not sure why M$ removed Windows 98 under the main DirectX 9.0 Redistributable file because M$ is still supportiung Windows 98 users until later this year... Great job Gape with 2.1a!
  9. Thanks krick for mentioning my mistake. I guess I need to double proof read before submitting. Thanks!
  10. I'm glad people are using the Icon Restore program. It IS very easy to use and a life safer (Well maybe not a lifesaver but at least Very useful) . I tend to keep my most use Icons on my desktop so this program is very good!
  11. I noticed that after running the TweakUI utility to fix the icons, my TrashCan icon has changed from the nice 256 color one back to the original Windows 98se one. Is there a way to get the nice updated icons back without reinstalling the SP1? I think I remember seeing this before that is why I went with the Icon Retore program. Much easier to fix the layout issue.
  12. Sorry about that. I've fixed the link now.
  13. Hi all, When time permits add this niffty little util that corrects the Icon Layout problem we sometimes encounter. Occasionally windows will lose the Icon layouts and I found out about this web site that has Helped me a Lot. ---> http://users.rcn.com/taylotr/icon_restore.html This little program is a great tool for any Windows 98se and above. It is called Icon-restore. I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this before so I apologize if I'm repeating anyone. By right-clicking your Trash Can, My Computer, etc you can select | Save Icon Layout | Restore Icon Layout after installing this very small program. If you haven't checked it out, do it soon!

  15. I have to say this forum is great! Yes Gape, good luck with your exams. I have a general question though. I am assuming it is normal that Microsoft is telling me I have new updates after loading the SP1 program? (Aside from the newest news about Microsoft continuing support for Windows98se users until 2007? and yesterdays posting of two new Hot Fixes for issues with Icons and IE?) I noticed that after I had updated my laptop I used the Update page and Microsoft said I had 8 items to update. My question I guess is will the newer Service Packs include these with it? You know what, you can forgot answering this. I should not have wrote this. Apparantly I'm way too tired to think straight. Duhhhh..
