Windows Updates for Legacy Operating Systems

Recommended Posts

I notice that archive.org has a collection of ISO files called "Windows Updates for Legacy Operating Systems (95-Vista)" or WULOS that is showing a publication date of 2018 (January 25, so just a few days ago).

I don't know if posting the link here would be approved of.  I guess I'm wondering if there's anything there that is new or useful vs what we already know or have regarding those operating systems.

I've downloaded the Security9 file, and I'm downloading the 95-XP file now (3.6 gb) - but it's going to take 6+ hours.  I'll post a directory listing for both of those later (unless there's an objection to that).  I don't intend to get the 6 gb of Vista files.

Edit:  ok, here's the file listings for WinUpdates_95-XP32.iso and Security9_enu_15.iso.  If there's any .txt files you see in there that you'd like me to attach to this post, let me know.

Thanks for the lists. Besides these updates, SP3 covers almost everything in the ISO.
 

Internet Explorer 6

NET Framework

Windows Image Acquisition 1.1 (WIA)

Windows Media Player 9 (WMP)

MGDx site has a unoffical update roolup for IE6. Theres also unoffical WMP 10 on the site that includes all those updates + more. The WIA i don't know anything about. .net is so rarely needed on 98 I think it doesn't matter.

I think that an educated person understands that you cannot secure windows 98 other than putting it behind a firewall and nat and allowing very limited internet access through a pinhole port. Locally securing 98 is impossible unless you are double natting and have a firewall between 98 and the rest of the devices on the LAN as well. Securing 9x is all about network isolation. So people who have security concearns about using 98 should not think that patches help.

Patches however add some functionality and fix bugs and this is more the mindset.
