Hotfixes Remaining For Gape's Collection

Recommended Posts

I know Gape needs two hotfixes to complete his list.

I just requested Q192425 and as soon as I get that, I will request Q246615.

I know Gape already have a Q192425.

(I found that in the MDGx site. --> http://www.mdgx.com/web.htm)

The Q246615 will be only need!

It only took one e-mail and one day to get Q192425. Just got it a few minutes ago.

I will now request the last hotfix that Gape is looking for.

FixItMad said he already got Q246615 hotfix. See '2.0 RC1' forum thread (page 9).

I have Q319571 keyb.com patch. replaces Q247853 keyb.com hotfix.

Gape has recently modified his 'needed updates' list page:

http://exuberant.ms11.net/neededupdates.html

to reflect that he has all the w98se updates needed. whatever w98se hotfixes

that are left out in v2.0 should be included in v2.1 of W98SE SP.

hopefully 2.0 final should be ready right before the start of spring, which is in

late March.

koo-el

yeah, this time M$ got it right in including the actual Q246615/Q246817 EXE patch so they did revise their hotfix package.

as for the Q265528 vnetbios.vxd patch, let's wait for a few months from now, then we can try asking for that patch since I was told a week ago that it was not currently available.

Another W98 hotfix that remains though I think is optional for Gape's Collection is the nscirda.sys Q323708 hotfix:

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=323708

This is only needed if you are using a high speed infrared wireless device under Win98 fe/se and uses the original nscirda.sys driver in Win98. If the high speed infrared device doesn't use the nscirda.sys file, then the Q323708 hotfix is useless.

This fix is only intended for WMI (WBEM) installs. WMI is not installed as part of original 98 + 98SE. Only ME installs WMI as mandatory component.

Available here:

Microsoft Windows 98/98 SE WBEMPROX.DLL Fix [194 KB]:

http://www.autourdupc.com/Logiciel/WIN98/S...82949_win98.exe

WMI/WBEM for 9x is available here:

http://www.mdgx.com/add.htm#WMI

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

UPNP [universal Plug and Pray ;)] was added by MS later in the game, and is not installed by original 98/98SE/ME setup CD-ROMs.

Only XP, 2003 + Longhorn install UPNP.

Not long after they released XP [sept 2001], UPNP has been discovered to be a serious security risk, leaving a back door for malware/spyware thru an open port.

MS issued [December 2001] fixes a.s.a.p. for this critical vulnerability, and they found out 98, 98SE + ME were also affected:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/ms01-059.mspx

This is the similar ME hotfix:

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=314757

which has the same [hex identical] 3 files as the 98/98SE fix:

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=314941

It is sure for Windows 98 SE, but when these UPNP files are installed?

These get installed when you start from WinXP and enable Internet Connection Sharing. You then can also optionally make an install disk for use with 98 or 98SE [ME and up already have UPNP installed independently, perhaps as an option, but clearly locally available as part of their own install].

Once you use that disk on 98/98se, you now have installed the flawed upnp for 98/se and need to appy the above to fix same, etc. Note the files have the mark of WinME, thus versions of the form 4.90.300x.

Without the initial upnp installed, these hotfixes give errors similar to how Q329048 gives a complaint caused by not having 98 Plus! installed. The installer is looking for the previous files to upgrade, etc.

These hotfix files are not new and have always been available since their respective release, etc. On my own system, upnp allows Windows to notice I have an "NAT Gateway Device" which is my wireless router back to the cable modem, etc.

I would hope that the SP 2 could apply all of these option-dependent fix files as the scenario is always the same: If the files exist, just replace them with newer ones. Adding them under any scenario should be harmless at worst.

This fix is only intended for WMI (WBEM) installs. WMI is not installed as part of original 98 + 98SE. Only ME installs WMI as mandatory component.

Just a bit misleading: In any case, you CAN install WBEM. In 98lite installs, these sub-components are broken out and can be installed/not installed at the time of initial system install.

WMI requires WBEM, but WBEM does not require WMI.

Regardless of how you get there, the hotfix applies as long as the feature is already installed, mandatory or otherwise.

btw: In WinME, WBEM is a mandatory requirement of the help and support center that forcibly comes up in safe mode. 98meLITE will prevent you from elimination of the WBEM if the help center is enabled, etc. [Note: Eliminating the help center itself is not recommended as it then makes other things break!] The point is that WMI itself can be eliminated while it makes sense to keep WBEM there, etc.

Additionally, you made reference to Steve Gibson's site [GRC] and his tirade against UPNP. As I understand it, he is referring to the UNFIXED UPNP that precedes these hotfixes and their cousins for WinME and WinXP. To my knowledge, there is currently no basis for complaining that UPNP represents an ongoing security risk on properly patched systems. Gibson would better serve common interest pointing out the need to be up to date instead of banning UPNP altogether.
