Service pack for Windows 98 Standard (First, Gold)

Recommended Posts


I have just gotten the Q192117 mstcp.dll hotfix from Microsoft though it took 2 tries.  First time I tried asking, I got a less than intelligent response from a support rep. that Win98 support has been retired.  So I asked again and then a different support rep gave me the patch.  Email me Petr and I'll be able to give it to you later today.
May I also have a copy, please?

U know my email. ;)

Thanks in advance.

Will see if I can find some of the missing hotfixes in my old storage.. A few years ago I found the Windwos Update Catalog or whatever it was called back then and downloaded all the updates for winme win98fe win98se.. And maybe a bunch of junk for 95 or something.. I will see if I still have them somewhere and get back this thread if I got anything. Late now finding this thread and I am going to bed soon so I will do this tommorow if possible.

Petr:

I would like to suggest to add these newer files to your next 98FE SP release:

Petr suggested we should try Win2000 Post-SP4 Q886765 OLE2 DLLs.

I have tried them with both 98SE + 98FE and so far they work ok:

ASYCFILT.DLL build 2.40.4526

OLEAUT32.DLL build 2.40.4526 = does NOT work, must use older OLEAUT32.DLL 2.40.4522 from Win2000 SP4

OLEPRO32.DLL build 5.0.4526

STDOLE2.TLB build 2.40.4526

Source:

Microsoft Windows 2000 Memory Leak ASYCFILT.DLL, OLEAUT32.DLL, OLEPRO32.DLL + STDOLE2.TLB Fix:

If you wish to install them yourself directly without extracting them manually, please d/l this unofficial fix:

I have also tried these 2 newer files from VB6 Post-SP6 Update with both 98SE + 98FE and so far they work ok:

COMCTL32.OCX build 6.00.8106

MSCOMCTL.OCX build 6.01.9786

Source:

Visual Basic 6.0 (VB6) Post-SP6 COMCTL32.OCX build 6.00.8106 + MSCOMCTL.OCX build 6.01.9786 Common Controls Update for Windows 98/NT4/2000/ME/XP/2003:

I have also tried these 2 newer files from Win2000 Post-SP4 Update Rollup 1 with both 98SE + 98FE and so far they work ok:

DHTMLED.OCX build 6.01.9232

WRITE32.WPC build 2004.11.7

I got this email from the person who created the unofficial 98FE/98SE KRNL386.EXE patch:

Unofficial Windows 98/98 SE KRNL386.EXE build 4.10.1999 Fix [172 KB, English]:

http://www.mdgx.com/files/98KRNLUP.EXE

posted here:

http://www.mdgx.com/web.htm#98SE

I would also strongly recommend to include KRNL386.EXE in any future inofficial service packs. If one ever experienced a very rare, mysterious, and not reproducible system freeze or BSOD when using a 16-bit program such as SYSEDIT, WINFILE, ... (typically on a slow machine) then KRNL386.EXE 4.10.0.1999 is the answer.
IMO sounds like a good idea to add patched KRNL386.EXE to your next 98FE SP release.

Hope this helps.

Hi MDGx,

How do you actually extract manually the files from Q886765.EXE ? Extracting from the exe is OK. But after, how do you convert the _sfx_xxxx._p files into the Oleaut runtime ?

I have installed the Oleaut 4526 update as well as COMCTL32.OCX build 6.00.8106 and

MSCOMCTL.OCX build 6.01.9786. It seems OK so far here with those.

Windows2000-KB886765-v2-x86-ENU.EXE /extract

But it works on W2K/WXP system only.

This is a Win2000 patch, using newer MS patching technology, files inside it can be extracted only from within NT4/2000/XP/2003/Vista(Longhorn), by running this command:

Q886765.EXE /x

Files will be extracted be default in current directory, but u can change that.

More info @ MSKB:

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=823980

This security patch supports the following Setup switches:

/? : Display the list of installation switches.

/u : Use Unattended mode.

/f : Force other programs to quit when the computer shuts down.

/n : Do not back up files for removal.

/o : Overwrite OEM files without prompting.

/z : Do not restart when installation is complete.

/q : Use Quiet mode (no user interaction).

/l : List installed hotfixes.

/x : Extract the files without running Setup.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I just installed your SP for 98FE and I have to say nice job, it didn't break anything and now it looks nicer to boot. Just one thing though, now the system properties says Windows 98 second edition but it also says 4.10.1998 so it's still FE. You might want to fix that.

Hi, thanks for the information, you are right, this string is contained in the Q272621 fix - SYSDM.CPL file 4.10.2224. Microsoft sent me this file as patch for First Edition but it seems to be intended for SE only originally. I will remove the "Second Edition" string in the next release (if there will be any).

hey Petr. I'm back from my long break. Have you tried asking Microsoft for these 3 patches for Win98:

Q254087 vmm.vxd 4.10.2000

Q265528 vnetbios.vxd 4.10.2223

Q329128 ndis.vxd 4.10.2001

Q329128 pppmac.vxd 4.10.2003

Q329128 vip.386 4.10.2004

Also, can your 98FE SP be posted at Softpedia.com, Petr? i don't like getting it at that rapidshare.de site.

Yes, I tried it again today, but I was told they are not available.

Also, can your 98FE SP be posted at Softpedia.com, Petr?  i don't like getting it at that rapidshare.de site.

I can give you direct download link if you want. But the latest version is two months old already.

Can I clarify something here?

Would I be correct in thinking that unlike most Service Packs (which include all previous updates) that this does not include the SE update?

Is the reason for this because SE was sold as a seperate upgrade package to those who bought the first edition of Win98?

I have a Win98 FE Installation CD and a seperate SE upgrade CD, but I can't get my FE install to run properly on my new A8N-SLi Deluxe motherboard (which might be coz it has onboard firewire?).

Assuming the answer to the first two questions is yes (SE is not included), can I combine this service pack with my Win98 FE installation CD to make a new Installation CD, and then apply my SE upgrade, and then the unofficial SE Service Packs?

@KerguelanAvon

Theoretically you are correct. This service pack applies only to 98 First Edition (or Gold). If you upgrade to SE, you'll need to use Gape's pack and not this one. But I suppose you could install it on FE, upgrade to SE and then install Gape's as you've said.
