  1. That's pretty slick. The Chromium builds are here: http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/index.html?path=Win/ I don't know what or why, but the page seems to be running a script and takes a while to render. Inside each directory there is a 'chrome-win32.zip' file, that's probably what you want instead of messing with the mini-installer.
  2. Maybe this: http://www.statistics101.net/OODocBatchConverter/ not sure if it will work on 9x and it requires OOo/LO
  3. Doesn't OpenOffice have a built in Wizard to do just what you want? File > Wizards > Document Converter. Edit: http://openoffice.blogs.com/openoffice/2007/08/taking-your-mic.html She's doing the reverse of what you're wanting to do, but as you can see, the options are there. Nevermind, doesn't work that way.
  4. Have you done a clean install after replacing memory/ video card? If not, I'd reset the BIOS to default options before doing, perhaps choosing compatibility mode for HD, if applicable. Do not reinstall over current install, do format and all. Edit: My Motherboard only allowed two choices for the graphics card: 'On Chip VGA' and 'PEG slot' which I assumed (still do) means PCI Express Graphics slot. Sorry I didn't recall that earlier, hope your not in the same boat. Further Edit: I may have had motherboard resource conflicts too, until I updated the drivers using Intel's update I pointed to above or the unofficial one (for the 865) I pointed to in my original post: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/158239-installing-98se-on-emachines-w3629/#entry1009973 I had to extract them and do them manually, I went into the device manager and updated that way. One at a time, yeah it's a pain, but it obviously worked for me.
  5. My apologies, my eyes were drawn to the 4096 + the fact that it is a four GB flash drive. Thanks for the clarification, all.
  6. Glad you got that to work jumper. Thanks for the details too. I am wondering if part of that is being wasted though: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/137152-physical-adress-extension-and-windows-9x/ It looks to me as though that unless you have R. Loews patch, that anything over 2 GB swap may be a waste. Perhaps you could store TEMP and/or temporary internet files there too.
  7. http://www.mdgx.com/files/NV8269.TXT the links in the file work too. Edit: here too: http://www.mdgx.com/files/nv8269.php
  8. It may not be the exact motherboard, but I did get 98SE running on a 945: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/158239-installing-98se-on-emachines-w3629/ Try it with 1 GB memory if possible. IMO, you should give up on AutoPatcher too. Try the unofficial SP instead. As you can see, I just used the generic inbuilt Intel Graphics card and the VBEMP 9x driver, so your result may be different. Quick advice (FWIW): Get to 1 GB RAM Reinstall You're already booting -- no need to fiddle with HD settings. Install this: http://www.mdgx.com/files/48BITLBA.EXE Reboot, see if you can get drivers going. Don't mess with updates (Patchers and SP included) until you can get the drivers going. BTW, the last official Intel Chipset driver will update a few drivers: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=8177&ProdId=816〈=eng&OSVersion=Windows%2098%20SE*&DownloadType=Software%20Archives I had to do them manually.

  9. I suppose if you had very little RAM and very little disk space, you could assign virtual memory to the flash drive, couldn't you? I've never tried it.
  10. I had to laugh when I ran across this: http://adminextra.com/threads/zb-block.3518/ Note Mikey's thoughts: Amen, Mikey. Amen. BTW, I should say that no one with half a brain ever implemented "RST cookies" like I mentioned above.
  11. The only thing I can guess that he could be yabbering about is "RST cookies" Was there an update that addressed this issue specifically? Not saying this is how he's detecting 95, just likely what he's talking about.
  12. The entire quote is: Don't you wish someone would have told you that you can't access the internet on Windows 95 before you did Andrew T.? I'm going to have to get the ol' Win 3.1 system up and running to see if I can access the site. Edit: User adwade is getting quite an edumacation from that post.
  13. Online (might be a bit basic): http://www.gcflearnfree.org/office2010
  14. It occurs to me that the basics weren't covered here: What processor/motherboard are you using? What updates have you applied? You may wish to check this out: http://toastytech.com/files/95browsing.html (I like the build of seamonkey there) Might try flash 8, perhaps even spoofing it like folks did with version 7.
  15. This is not my build, I resurrected it out of the Webarchive, I've downloaded it and ran it, very briefly. Didn't set off my security software. I've uploaded it to MediFire: http://www.mediafire.com/download/jc47bzp2k9497rm/fx-trunk-bin-2006051504.7z You'll need 7zip, good luck
  16. Didn't some of the early 3.0 alphas build without Cairo? If I remember correctly, Mozilla did some testing with non-Cairo builds so that Cairo could be brought up to par. Some of those might work.
  17. Taking a shot in the dark, as I've never seen this bug in the official builds with KernelEx, but did have issues when building with the VC toolkit 2003. Found a solution after some Googling: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=692065 The solution, as described in that post, is to implement the build options: ac_add_options --disable-parental-controls ac_add_options --disable-vista-sdk-requirements exclude all calls to nsDownloadScanner in nsDownloadManager.cpp and either stripping the 256x256 image from firefox.ico or replacing firefox.ico with one from Firefox 2.x. I'm thinking this may be related because, as schwups said: Just a guess.
  18. I know it's been a while since anyone has posted in this forum, but I'm going through this now. I could not get setup.exe to work. I finally figured out that by copying KEY.DAT from the installation CD to the hard drive renaming it KEY.Reg and double-clicking (putting info in registry) it that I could run ACMBOOT.EXE to get Visual Studio to install. Don't know whether it matters or not, but I made a zero byte file named msjava.dll in the Windows folder before doing anything else. Figured I'd post here in case anyone else would find this useful.
  19. FWIW, I've found two updates: Excel: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/830356 Direct link to exe: http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/4/f/e4fdbf94-2d86-41bd-ab68-770f8ddef3fd/office97-kb830356-enu.exe extract excel.exe Word: Info: ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/misc1/DESKAPPS/WORD/KB/Q298/0/63.TXT I can't find exe @ MS, but: http://www.fileplanet.com/60491/60000/fileinfo/Word-97-Security-Update:-Macro-Vulnerability (it works I've tested it, get winword.exe and wwintl32.dll)
  20. copy excel.exe, xlintl32.dll and get xl8409.dll from the Excel Viewer 97, put in folder and get functioning Excel. Edit: Macros don't work, but simple formulas do. Further Edit: Should mention I'm using Win7 now, when trying Macros says Stdole2.tlb is missing, may be okay on older Windows...IDK
  21. FYI, if you copy powerpnt.exe and Ppintl.dll to the same folder double-clicking the exe will run. Think pptview.dll must be good for something too.
  22. Obviously, this is something that every person is going to have to decide for him/herself. I rarely actually use it anymore just to chat with a friend whom insists on using it that lives half-way around globe. I can understand Andrew's pursuit of it as a curiosity. Reminds me of one of my first (if not my very first) post here at MSFN: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/82947-in2tv-and-more-on-win98/ and jds's attempts to get Zimbra going under Win98: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/163408-zimbra-desktop-722-potential-outlook-replacement/ As I've stated there, I'm not impressed with Zimbra's software, but as for the intellectual challenge of getting it going on an older version of Windows -- that kinda of stuff interests me. Forgive my rambling, just reminiscing
  23. You might want to ask yourself, how badly you want Skype (maybe even anything MS) after reading this: http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2013/oct/11/skype-ten-microsoft-nsa
