Is it possible with new 98 SE SP to slipstream all updates into original Windows 98 SE source CD?

Only hot-fixes (Main Update) are slipstreamable. It is different from Windows XP's slipstream method.

Firstly, you must copy your Windows 98 SE Source CD's WIN98 directory into hard drive (like D:\WIN98). After that, you must only extract SP2.CAB into D:\WIN98. Windows Setup will use these newer fixed files during installation.

Note: You can see setup file's (SESP20B2.EXE) contents with Winzip, Winrar or PowerArchiver (Right click - Open with Winzip). SP2.CAB is in the setup file.

Hello !

Gape, how about to keep original Windows 98 SE icons. ?

The colour scheme from Windows 2000 seems to be fine to me, but I really don`t like the icons.

And...how about to replace the original boot logo with Windows 98 Second Edition boot logo.

A release date ? [i can hardly wait ... :unsure: ]

shuKaru,

As I said, Windows 2000 desktop icons and Windows 2000 color scheme features will be optional. 2.0 BETA 2 contains a new boot logo as optional feature.

All,

I have just got 16 new hot-fixes, so I think perhaps there will be a Release Candidate (RC) before FINAL. Sorry about this but we must be sure about these new hot-fixes' compatibility.

Gape!

I know that vxd fix is myth.

Read this please!

http://www.infinisource.com/techfiles/vmm32.html

And do you have a 320798 hotfix ?

Microsoft Office Documents Open Slowly After You Visit Korean Web Pages

That is only Korean-localized versions of Windows 98 and Windows 98 Second Edition.

I'm using Korean-localized versions of Windows 98 Second Edition.

If you have a 320798 hotfix, send me email please.

My email address is myinbox@empal.com.

Thanks.

HSI,

I read the link, thank you. According to this link, "missing vxd files" is NOT a bug. They are already in the VMM32.VXD. I totally agree.

From the link: "M$ says that extracting system files that are rolled into VMM32.VXD will not increase system performance..." I don't agree with M$, sorry. Extracting some VXD files into Windows\System\VMM32 directory improves performance. I made some tests on my system with WinTune and PCPlayer 3D Benchmark, and these benchmark applications say my performance increased approximately %5 after VXD extracting. I know some other people reports similar results.

VXD-Fix contains 7 files. Service Pack contains updated versions of 4 of them. So, I already have to install these 4 files into Windows\System\VMM32.

I don't have 320798, sorry. Perhaps, you can request it from M$.

what about adding that task manager for win98 se and replace the windows 98 se one with this one instead?

here is the link:

http://www.niresoft.com/tm.asp

also would it possible to add the choice of adding or removing the windows 2000 color scheme and icons to the add/remove in the control panel or add it to the windows setup like what 98lite does so that if you make a mistake you can reinstall it without running the service pack?

Well I think there isn't too much point adding too many 3rd party applications, we can download them anyway ... they merely increase download size

My suggestions -

1. Conservative Swap file enabled only on systems with 128MB or more RAM ...

More later

ujjwal, with the version 2.0, conservative swap file is in the "Performance Tweaks" option.

soldier1st, we can discuss this task manager for 2.1. ;)

The edit to the System.ini file of ConservativeSwapFileUsage=1 is meant for systems with 256MB RAM or more only. ;)

Actually I got a good performance increase on a PIII 450 with 128MB RAM with conservative swap usage, but I run on a celeron 266 + 64MB RAM at home ;)

Great to see that 2.0 organises updates in such a fashion, good work :)
