98SE2ME = Killer Replacements: ME -> 98 SE

Recommended Posts


Your home page says that 98SE2ME was updated 06-25-2009 (but on your site's 98SE2ME page itself, that it was updated April 12 2009). The date given at the top of this thread, however, is 2-14-2009.

Could you explain which date I should take to indicate when the 98SE2ME executable was updated, and what the other dates refer to (if anything - such as a simple update to the content of the 98SE2ME page)? At the moment, it's confusing.

Thank you.

this happen in my case,

installing, using then, uninstalling Option #3 (shell replacement),

leaves drophandler key in various registry entries, which causes send-to (or drag-drop to application) not working.

i've manualy delete those registry keys to make 'send-to' works again.

those drophandler works on ME shell, but not in 98SE shell.

Hi MDGx,

My 98SE2ME continues to run flawlessly and has done since I installed it in April 2006.

I am at present still using the 12-12-2007 version, although all more recent updates have been applied by hand so to speak.

However, with the_guy raising the subject of the unofficial Q918547 fixes in another thread, did remind me ask the following.

According to update 8-1-2006. Options 1 + 2 :replaced GDI32.DLL + GDI.EXE 4.90.3002 from unofficial WinME Q912919 hotfix with newer GDI32.DLL + GDI.EXE 4.90.3003 from unofficial WinME Q918547 MS06-026 security fix.

This was later changed back to the earlier version because of a problem with power management, was it only PROBLEMCHYLD that had this issue or could you reproduce the issue yourself?

Edit: I have been using 4.90.3003 versions for over one month now with no apparent problems of any sort.

Thanks for your work


You might want to add these files back because they

do not cause power management problems GDI32.DLL + GDI.EXE 4.90.3003.

The trick is to reset the power management features to something other than what you had it on

then change it back. Sorry :thumbup

GDI32.DLL + GDI.EXE 4.90.3003 continue to work without ANY problems on my 98SE2ME box since re- installing them in February.

These three files do NOT install




Why when i install 98SE2ME on a clean install it says i only installed

720 files but all the files are there accept the 3 files above? I checked each file 1 x 1.

But you have 756 listed at you site. So 753 installed but it says 720. :unsure:

Also 98SE2ME Pinball version overrides my Windows XP version.

Can you add these files back gdi32.dll + gdi.exe 4.90.3003

Can you also add Winfile

Can you downgrade patched vxdmon.vxd to allow System Restore to work.

sixcentgeorge, some changes to your list.

- sesp30b4-en.exe should be first.

- DX90C.EXE and ie6setup.exe are installed by AutoPatcher98

- move MPSetup.exe / wmp9 before 98SE2ME.EXE

- use rpXbeta1.zip because rpXbeta2.zip is unstable.
