Problem with Revolutions Pack 9.7

Recommended Posts

I just recently installed a fresh copy of Windows 98SE on my computer and I'm having a problem with RP 9.7.2. For some reason the icons are not showing correctly in the RPConfig window:

I can change the Windows skins but I can not do anything to the System icon set.

I should note that after I installed Windows I right away removed Internet Explorer off the computer, then I installed the following before I loaded RP:

~ Patches & files (listed in the attachment)

~ Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 run-time

~ kernelex 4.5.1 (set disabled by default)

~ directx-90c_dec2006.

I know that this program recommends IE6, but I really don't want to install that browser. Is there anyway around this problem?

It's because you removed IE I guess. Perhaps you can fix it if you get shlwapi.dll from IE6 and register it in your system with regsvr32.

After trial & error, I could not get RP9 to work without installing IE6 first.

After installing IE6 I found out that I don't need to keep the browser in order to use RP9, however I have to remove IE first before installing RP.

I did try to manually install the IE6 Update off this page (http://rp9.win98.nl/), but that ended up leaving Windows unusable...

Those updates are for WIndows 98 FIRST Edition, as mentioned towards the top of the page. You have Windows 98 SECOND Edition.
