    Now this is weird. I looked at three different XP "update packs." All of them are using MSXML 4.0 SP 2 instead of SP 3. I downloaded Problemchylde's latest "service pack" for 98. He's got one from 07/12/16. It's up to v3.56 now. Last one I had was v3.37 from 01/15. He's also using MSXML 4.0 SP 2. Why aren't these guys using SP 3? It's been out for almost seven years.
  2. You weren't kidding. They look like the exact same files. I grabbed the others while I was at it. I might need something to do after I finish transplanting XP files. FWIW, I use XMSDSK on my clunkers.

    Well, this is certainly disappointing. There used to be several guys around here who knew about these things, or were willing to test them. I guess they've all moved on. Where's Axcel216 when you need him? Oh hell, I'd settle for Problemchylde right about now :) Looks like I'll have to test these files myself. The latest unofficial "update pack" for XP that I found was XPSP3_QFE_UpdatePack_20170619. It's designed to be "slipstreamed," so the files don't need to be patched. Inside was a newer version of GDIPLUS.DLL. It's a Vista file. Version 5.2.6002.24064. File date 02/13/17. 1,753,088 bytes. It seems to work under SE. There are no missing dependencies. Of course, ti wouldn't register, but I don't believe any version of GDIPLUS will. My network works. I've got Internet access. As far as I can tell, it hasn't screwed anything up yet. Looks like it's safe enough to test. I don't rightly know what GDIPLUS is used for. I believe it's got something to do with Visual C. I'll be sure to let you guys know if my machine blows up :)

    More XP updates: https://www.askwoody.com/2017/xp-sp3server-2003-security-patches-released-june-2017/ Wonder if any of this stuff can be used with 9X?

    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/msrc/2017/05/12/customer-guidance-for-wannacrypt-attacks/ There are 32-bit and 64-bit versions for XP SP2.

    So, are 9X machines vulnerable? I see MickeySoft released a patch for XP. Could portions of it be used with 98?
  7. Thanks, MiKl. That's the same problem I had. It starts fine, but crashes when I try to add files.
  8. I tried it again. I captured the FineSSE error if I can figure out how to attach it.
  9. I was mistaken about FlashBlock, however I did run into another problem. Finesse23.exe kept popping up with an access violation whenever I ried to run XnConvert. When I reverted back to 4.5.2 from Release_5.7 the problem went away. My content line reads: contents=Kstub822,std,kexbases,kexbasen,K452stub I just downloaded your Release.7.7 I'll try it out and try switching the order of the contents line.
  10. Only problem so far is that it seems to have broken FlashBlock under BonEcho and Firefox 3.6.28. No big deal. I just disabled FlashBlock. Don't really need it with NoScript.
  11. I've got the same problem as oc_dt and gg41.
