Gape, why don't use a bytepatcher for that?

Because modifiying icons change the size of the file, and that prevents to make the patcher.

Restorator is a commercial (not-free) product.

Yes, but ResPatchers are free for non-commercial use.

Gape:

I have a question for all: I think I'll add new desktop icons feature as a seperate DLL, and it will be optional. What do you think? Is it OK?

Sounds great.

Better to provide an icon library everybody can choose different icons from, than to hex files people may not be comfortable using.

BTW: This guy has about 6000 Windows icons in 1 zip [free]:

ftp://ptb:sync@ftp.netcult.ch/download/IconCollection.zip

I've also got unofficial win98se SP 2.0 beta 3. very good.

Some disappointments I like to point out:

Updated wupdmgr.exe file not included. I sent this file to you Gape.

Hsflop.pdr file is still version 4.10.2223. I will request from MS the Q262232

patch for Win98se that includes English hsflop.pdr file v4.10.2224.

Unicows.dll file version 1.0.4018. New version of unicows.dll file is

now version 1.1.3790. Go to mdgx's web site and download new Unicows file.

Gdi.exe & Gdi32.dll files. Version 4.10.2225 is correct but version DATES are NOT.

Those 2 gdi files are dated 8/20/1999 < wrong date! Date should be 3/20/2001

just like the ones from the Q289635 Win98 patch.

HTML Help files from XP SP2. Mdgx has revised his Html Help 1.41 package that

includes Html Help files from Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 RC1 which

is version 5.20.3790.1289. Also fixes a recent security problem mentioned in

microsoft security bulletin ms05-001 & ms article 890175.

Hopefully you can include most or all of these in beta 4 or 2.0 RC1, Gape.

All, I recommend that you should try this BETA on a test system, or on VirtualPC, or on VMWare. Especially, I couldn't test 98lite Sleek support and Uninstallation support very well. If you install it with or without problems, please write on this topic. Please, don't write any new feature request for this version. All new feature requests should be for 2.1

"Unofficial" Windows98SE SP2 RC1

These are the newest versions as far as I know:

msvcirt.dll = from WinME, installed by 98SE2ME [you can tell by the date/time stamp]

msvcrt.dll = from Win2000 SP4, installed by Gape's Win98SE SP 1.6.2 [for some reason Gape removed it from SP 2.0 betas :(]

rpcltccm.dll = from + installed by MS DCOM98 + by Gape's Win98SE SP 1.6.2 + 2.0 beta 2 + 3 [you can tell by the date/time stamp]

Wupdmgr.exe didn't included because of 98lite Sleek compatibility. GDI*.* files are exactly same versions from the hot-fix. I didn't modify their dates.

All other files will be in the 2.0.

thanks gape.

rpcltccm.dll 4.71.3328 3/29/1999 12 AM 26896 bytes

MS KB article 243220 has rpcltccm.dll file version 4.71.3328.0 but file size

is 26112 bytes and dated 9/08/1999. So that leads me to believe the

Q243220 patch has the newer file than what Dcom98 pack has.

Here are some other updated files you have not listed in your Needed

Updates list for your Win98se SP:

Q240896 opengl32.dll v4.00 721680 bytes 1/07/2000

Q319571 keyb.com N/A 19943 bytes 4/10/2002

Q242941 serenum.vxd v4.10.2223 20228 bytes 10/08/1999

(ms article 242941 incorrectly lists version no. for serenum.vxd files)

The 890175 MS05-001 security updates contain hhctrl.ocx file version

5.20.3790.233. this version has a known problem noted in the Caveats

section of the security bulletin. Use Html Help 1.41 from Mdgx's site

instead which has hhctrl.ocx file v5.20.3790.1289 and has no problems.

Great that the updated files from the Q257821 patch are included in the

Win98se SP. Do you have the full Q257821 win98 patch, gape? if so

can you email it to me. click on my username and send me an email.
