Last Versions of Software for Windows 98SE

Recommended Posts

Another one of those stupid applications which ignore the function that the [X] in the corner was designed for: CLOSE the application. And... 'upgrade to Pro if you want <this> or <that>'? C'mon...

It's resources usage is ridiculous as its system requirements are. Codestuff Starter does almost the same job and runs fine on a 200MHz Pentium.

Another well known app:

Hey Drugwash,

I think AnVir Task Manager Free is a great tool. The 'Pro' features I don't really need anyway.

I do not start it with Windows and only run it when I need to check out what's going on behind the scenes!

The reason for it's resource and system requirements is because it is a powerful utility.

Sure, their are smaller TMs for older systems too.

Could you perform a feature comparison between AnVir Task Manager Free and Codestudd Starter, and point out the differences - at least the ones that matter?

I found the former to be very slow on my 400MHz Pentium II (probably because of the skin, for one), while the latter is extremely easy on the system. And seeing that soporific already grabbed the former and tossed it in Auto-Updater, if I wanted to update Win98SE on my testing 166MHz Pentium I, I'd certainly wanna have at hand a tool that'd actually work on such system.

Just a followup / update.

The link provided for FFDSHOW points to a discontinued branch of it's development. Milan stopped development of it long ago it seems (back in '04). Continued development based on Milan's FFDSHOW branch can be found at the following URL:


Also to add:


Last version of Haali's Media Splitter that works on win9x was on 03-06-2007 and can be found at http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_so....cfm/03_06_2007

It is used for the opening and support of MKV video/audio containers.

A few days ago I have tried to install ffdshow-rev1803_20080120.zip and ffdshow-rev1805_20080122.zip (MMX version) and they both threw an error stating 'The setup files are corrupted...". I downloaded again from the mirror provided by free-codecs.com and still the same error. However, an older build I had around (ffdshow_beta4a_rev1723_20071224_clsid.exe) installed succesfully, but I experience very frequent image lockups (on a 400MHz Pentium II with 256 MB PC133 SDRAM and GeForce4 Ti4200 VTD8X 128MB).

Could anyone else confirm these issues?

Try adjusting the decoder options in the FFDSHow video decoder confiuration. I experienced the video lockups but sound still playing due to the quality conrol 'Drop frame on delay' setting. It would catch up after a minute or two but got annoying.

Certain formats are cpu/vid intensive. Tried using an H.264 vid on my laptop and only started getting smooth play when enabling 'Resize & aspect' to not only resize to a smaller output but also setting the 'Luma Method' to 'point'.

Seems higher quality vids on some systems cause alot of video delay (latency behind the audio). Can see (and adjust setting accordingly) the video delay by enabling the OSD and checking in 'Video Delay'.
