  1. Nice project! However, when I install the unofficial IE5.5 SP3 (IE5.5SP3-KB2962872-Windows95-x86-INTL.EXE) on top of a preinstalled (German) IE5.5 SP2 in Windows 95, the scroll bars are not visible and you also can't scroll any page with the "Page up/Page down" buttons.
  2. Seems you already got the most recent versions. About that Comctl32 memory leak, see also http://toastytech.com/files/comctl32.html that offers the Comctl32.dll in 5.00.0910.1306, which you also already have. So I guess, there's not much new information here
  3. For translation tasks you could also use the tools "reshack" or "exescope".
  4. Windows 98 SE (of course) in several retro gaming rigs...
  5. There is a workaround: https://communities.vmware.com/message/2947137#2947137
  6. Here's a quick fix for German users: While using the English version of FDISK.EXE or FORMAT.COM on a German keyboard layout/system, FDISK/FORMAT required you to enter "J" (for "Ja") instead of "Y" (for Yes) altough it displayed that you should choose between "Y" and "N". This was very confusing, so I changed the FDISK/FORMAT executables accordingly, that it would now display and accept "J/N" as it is way more user intuitive (see attached file).

  7. Sorry for the late reply. Unfortunately, the link https://easyupload.io/w0hg8v does not work any more. The "list index out of bounds (3)" occurs if the infex.ini is malformed. Execute infex.exe to see if there are any errors (works also within Windows 10, but don't install anything) .
  8. If your concern is about space and you don't want to mess around with "iexpress", you could also follow a more pragmatic approach: unzip the U98SESP3.EXE remove components you don't want physically (e.g. "fonts.cab" and "dx9c.cab" as they require the most space) also remove the corresponding entries from the "infex.ini" file (so they don't appear as install option any more) create a new executable ZIP file (with e.g. Winrar 32bit) with a SFX option, that would call the "infex.exe" upon file extraction (you will create your own installer this way)
  9. Creating the installer package is pretty stright forward, you just need the files from the original and create your own package with "iexpress.exe": http://www.mdgx.com/INF_web/index.htm The installer will call the "infex.exe" file during unpacking the installation files and display the options that are entered in "infex.ini". Each option triggers then one of the .inf files that reside inside the package, e.g. SPUPDATE.INF or ZIPFLDR.INF ans so on...
  10. I would like to announce the German version of the unofficial Windows 98 SE SP Version 3.x based on PROBLEMCHYLD outstanding work. It's currently in beta state and lookingfor beta testers. It does not include all features of its English predecessor (yet?), however some more Win ME files were interspersed where appropriate. Its focus is also more on retro/games, thus spider solitaire and space cadet were also included, as well as Tihiy's "IPtest - network inducator" tool. If you run a German Windows 98 SE and would like to have a look, please feel free to download it at https://www.creopard.de/projekte/windows-98-se-service-pack.htm#Windows_98_SP_Download Feedback welcome!
  11. Very helpfull, indeed. Currently, there are only PE files with zero headers left
  12. Obviously I chose the way "learning by doing" - I was not yet familiar to linear executables and new executables... But thanks for pointing at the right direction. I was assuming that "PEChecksum" would have a look at offset 80h and check for "PE" before calculating a new checksum. Would it also make senseo to correct the checksum of NE and LE executables?
  13. I'm patching them because I'm currently updating the outdated German "Windows 98 SE SP 3.0 beta4" to a new/fully tested version 3.1. As you can imagine this requires replacing/editing quite some files with the German equivalents... Based on PROBLEMCHYLD's "U98SESP3" Pack, I'm recreating the German version, hence the question about the checksums. Here is the list of files that had the checksum updated: However I didn't narrow the list down yet to specific files, that might provoke the protection error...
