Last Versions of Software for Windows 98SE

Recommended Posts

Here's a really awesome system information tool (thanks Xeno86!):

If you've used SiSoftware's Sandra, you'll find this much better!

It's portable as well, so you don't need to install it on the PC in question.

ONG FREE Zmule/Emule

I'v tried Zmule (local version of eMule and the same program, I htink)

What influence does the operating system have?

eMule works with all Windows versions after Windows 95. A P2P application uses many network connections and thus needs a stable network implementation. Windows 98 and ME have a very poor network implementation impairing eMule's performance. More recent operating systems like Windows 2000 or XP are better suited.

Tip: In the ini file enter "0" after "WinXPSP2=".

After that zMule worked almost normaly. Crashing here and there, but nothing preventing to use it. Reducing the down and up load threads helped make it more stable while using the computer with other programs. While not using the computer, I set it on full all night, every nights for 2 weeks, without a glitch.

I'm not sure about the "impaired" perforances they are talking about: It was often downloading and uploading up to the physical limit of my aDSL connection... :unsure:

Hi,

Would you please suggest a utility, that substitutes Norton Utilities.

I have been using NU successfully over the past few years, but I switched to SATA disk recently. Therefore a new utility is to be put into consideration.

Never loved built-in ScanDisk.

Cheers! :rolleyes:

No idea why the say about GoldWave

"Windows NT/95/98 are not supported and will not work (please download v4.26 instead). "

GoldWave v5.23 works fine on Windows 98, don't know if it KernelEX is the reason, but it works!

Update:

I know that many people here really love Everest and highly recommend it, but IMHO SIW (System Information for Windows) by Gabriel Topala is just as good, if not better.

It's light on system resources and doesn't require installation. Just download and use it. Easy to read output files and navigate. If you want to give it a try, here's the link:

I agree, SIW is better. That's why it is already on the list :)

But for Everest I recommend older version 1.51. It can also be found following the link you provided. Everest 2+ is freeware but also crippleware. Everest 1.51 is the last fully functional free version.

Hi all :hello: ...

Concerning the Windiff utility v6.x mentioned in the first post.

I was wondering if anyone had already downloaded the Vista Platform SDK and might favor us by yanking out the Windiff files (and probably also the GUTILS.DLL) and making it available here possibly in a file called Windiff_Latest.zip or something?

For any masochist with time on their hands, the huge Microsoft SDK file is referenced at MDGx as such:

Windows Vista SDK DVD Image (ISO) for Windows XP/2003/Vista [1.1 GB].

I'll do it myself if no-one else already has! But this would certainly be the mother of all world records for stupid bandwidth wasting. Download 1.1 GB to extract ~250 KB. Talk about an order of magnitude. Microsoft, you are idiots. :realmad: Those SDK cabinets should be expanded somewhere for the Techs to use.

Thanks in advance!

Hi All ... I will let the moderator (s) decide if the last version of Foxit Reader 2.2.2129 for Windows is the last version for Win 98SE. It was listed to work with this OS but the new version (v2.3) no longer lists Win 98 or 98SE. This little paragraph is from the Foxit Reader website under Info/Overview :

Overview

Foxit Reader is a free PDF document viewer and printer, with incredible small size (only 2.55 M download size), breezing-fast launch speed and rich feature set. Foxit Reader supports Windows Me/2000/XP/2003/Vista. Its core function is compatible with PDF Standard 1.7.

--------------------------------------------

... as I said earlier, Win 98 was listed with the last version ... I wrote to FileHippo about this same question, since they are still saying (Windows - all versions). I never heard back from them. ... but at the FoxitReader website, Win 98SE is no longer included in the list.

Why not try it yourself? I've seen too many sites that stopped mentioning any version of Windows below 2000 (even though some are manufacturer sites and are supposed to offer support - drivers - for their products for all OS versions) and still the software listed - in most cases - does work on Win9x.

As if someone - we know who - would have grabbed them by the balls and forced them to not even whisper 'Win9x'...

On Windows XP/2003/Vista, run the PSDK for Vista Web Install and install only the Tools. It's only some MBs to download.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

There's also the SDK for Windows Server 2008 Web Install, although I have not tested the Tools in 9x...

Thanks for the added information RetroOS. You wouldn't happen to know what versions of Windiff are in those two packages?

According to the first post in this thread Windiff has been recently updated to v6.0.6000.16384. Implicit in that post is the fact that this file is Win9x compatible.

I see no fewer than twelve Windiff builds in my personal archives and I believe each works in Win9x provided you plant the appropriate GUTILS.DLL nearby. The latest version that I have is v5.2.3790.0 (srv03_rtm.030324-2048). There may be later ones that I am not aware of.

Everyone, please feel free to add your knowledge to this.

Perhaps MDGx will consider archiving the *latest* Windiff on his most excellent site.

WinDiff 6.0.6000.16384 is the version that comes with the Vista SDK.

As mentioned, I have not looked into the Windows Server 2008 SDK... I will check it out and post results...
