  1. Hi, instead of running the DIR command three times for each desired folder, why not run it only once, using for example 'dir C:\ /O:GN /A /-P'? And, BTW, why are you using a batch file at all? You can process directories (and their subdirectories) with VBS very well. And, BTW2, why don't you use SFC? Regards Andreas
  2. Assuming odbcjt32.dll is located in the folder c:\windows\system, and further assuming that you have copied the new file to c:\windows\temp, do the following: Using NOTEPAD, open the file c:\windows\wininit.ini Add the following two lines: [rename] c:\windows\system\odbcjt32.dll=c:\windows\temp\odbcjt32.dll Restart WinME HTH - Andreas
  3. Does this occur in Safe Mode too?
  4. No, there isn't. A lot of localized strings are hardwired in a lot of files (DLLs, EXEs, ...)
  5. It has already been posted in THIS thread. Read soporific's 1st article and have a look at the OPKInstall section ...
  6. Use a VB script (WMI is required also): strComputer = "." Set wbemServices = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer) Set wbemObjectSet = wbemServices.InstancesOf("Win32_LogicalMemoryConfiguration") For Each wbemObject In wbemObjectSet WScript.Echo "Total physical memory (KB): " & wbemObject.TotalPhysicalMemory Next
  7. The file named "directx.log" should give you a hint.
  8. I have managed to remove the MSN icon, but at the ultimate stage of the setup process (after logon) two RunOnce jobs are active which put back that @*~!§$ icon
  9. I guess you mean system.ini. Add this to your msbatch.inf: [UPD.Sys.systemini] %10%\system.ini, 386Enh, , "32BitDiskAccess=on" %10%\system.ini, 386Enh, , "32BitFileAccess=on" %10%\system.ini, 386Enh, , "PagingDrive=C:" %10%\system.ini, 386Enh, , "PagingFile=C:\PAGEFILE.SYS" %10%\system.ini, 386Enh, , "MinPagingFileSize=200704" %10%\system.ini, 386Enh, , "MaxPagingFileSize=200704" %10%\system.ini, 386Enh, , "WindowUpdateTime=1" %10%\system.ini, 386Enh, , "LocalLoadHigh=1" %10%\system.ini, 386Enh, , "VGA MonoText=Off" %10%\system.ini, 386Enh, , "Text=Off" %10%\system.ini, 386Enh, , "ConservativeSwapfileUsage=1" %10%\system.ini, vcache, , "MaxFileCache=32768" %10%\system.ini, vcache, , "ChunkSize=2048" [Install] UpdateInis=UPD.Sys.systemini NEVER set a maximum for the swap file unless you REALLY need to do so. NEVER use ConservativeSwapfileUsage=1 unless you REALLY need to do so. (Why should one downgrade to the legacy W95 mode of swap handling?) Naming the swap file Pagefile.sys (only) makes sense when the swap file is shared with another OS which uses a swap file with that name. The value for MaxFileCache might be way too small for many machines - individual adjustment is required. The ChunkSize setting is questionable.
  10. Update: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?act=ST...&t=46860&st=45# (Ultimate Freeware Machine)
  11. - Copy the W98 installation folder from the setup CD to your harddisk. - Copy the drivers which you want to add to your harddisk. - Unpack or extract the drivers, so INFINST can find the required .inf files. - Run INFINST to add the driver files to the setup files. - Make a new W98 setup CD.
  12. Use INFINST.EXE - should be found on your W98 CD.
  13. Try [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell\FList\command] @="C:\\WINDOWS\\command.com /c dir \"%1\" /a-d /b /s|sort>FileList.txt"
  14. Please post some excerpts from the list which show where the sorting "breaks".

  16. A few questions/remarks: - launch.bat & install.bat are missing - the script refers to ie6sp1.bat, ie6_98.bat is shown; are these files identical? - update3.bat is shown, but nowhere refered to - does dx9.bat look similar to ie6sp1.bat (ie6_98.bat)? Regarding the logon prompt: fantomcat's hint did the trick for me (add the line e. g. to the OPKInstall section): ; The line below turns off the user logon going into Windows (needed for ; factory configuration portion of Express setup). HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Network\Real Mode Net","autologon",1,00000000" (maybe this only works if "Windows logon" is used) Regarding monitor drivers: I injected the .inf file for my monitor via INFINST into the WIN98 setup folder. Because my monitor is not 100% DDC(?) compatible it was not automatically detected by w98. Therefore I took a snapshot before and after I set up the monitor in the display properties using REGSHOT, compared these snapshots using REGSHOT, and finally built a .reg file according to the difference of these two shots.

  17. THANK YOU! The OPKInstall section was very helpful.
  18. Reset the read only attribute (Right click - Properties).
  19. Download Express from Metaproducts fits my needs: free, fast, reliable, no ads, no spyware, is updated regularly.
  20. You'd better mask the product key ...
  21. From http://support.microsoft.com/kb/229154/EN-US/ : This problem may occur if either of the following conditions is true: • You are running Windows on a hard disk that is larger than 8 gigabytes (GB) and that has a cluster size that is smaller than 8 kilobytes (KB). This configuration may occur if you use a third-party disk tool to create a partition on a hard disk that is larger than 8 GB and that has a cluster size that is smaller than 8 KB. -or- • You are running Windows on a very large hard disk that has a default Windows cluster size of 32 KB.
  22. from http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/in...fb2d300.xml.asp : "INF Size Limits A Windows 9x/Me INF file cannot be larger than 64 kilobytes. There is no practical limit to the size of an INF file for NT-based systems. Unless otherwise restricted in this documentation, the maximum length of any INF file field is 512 characters (including a terminating NULL character). Note, however, that Plug and Play may impose a more restrictive limit for certain INF file fields that it recognizes or uses, such as device description, driver provider, and device manufacturer."

  23. Replace your keyboard with a known good one. A key which, let's say, works fine with and without the SHIFT key is no proof that a problem with that key in combination with the ALT/ALT GR is NOT hardware related - even if the ALT/ALT GR key works fine in combination with other keys. BTW: Which operating system are you using? Which type of keyboard (serial, PS/2, USB) are you using?
  24. Not tested, but should work: To change logo.sys, logos.sys, and logow.sys, simply copy your .sys files to the Windows 98 installation folder (\Win98). These files will be copied to the right place by the setup procedure automatically.
