98 FE + 98 SE + ME updates + patches + (hot)fixes

Recommended Posts

...

All you installed was a couple of MDX reg entries [which are useless to Win9x/ME OSes, because DX has not been updated for these OSes since Dec 2006], nothing else.

...

Actually, March 2008 Redist did install some updated MDX dlls - I watched the status line...

Of course, they may not do anything in 9x...

UPDATED · 4-27-2008

Please see the top of this topic for most recent updates.

Enjoy.

Thanks MDGx. Delivering the goods as usual! :)

NEW: Java RE 6 Update 6 is out.

NO, PROBLEMCHYLD, those versions of the CRYPT32.DLL & CRYPTUI.DLL files do NOT work. They can mess up your Win98se machine.

New Jet 4.0 MS08-028 security updates:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/MS08-028.mspx

Whenever MDGx has some spare time, he should use the KB950749 files from the Win2000 patch.

And the links to my unofficial Win98 FE SP 2.50 packs only points to the full SP on his Software Essentials page. He'll need to fix that "oopsie" and follow my suggestions to rename the full 98 SP 2.50 pack to 98FESP2F.EXE and rename the lite 98 SP 2.50 pack to 98FESP2L.EXE.

For now the full 98fe SP 2.50 pack is here:

http://www.usaupload.net/d/yewpi8d9czk

and the lite 98fe SP 2.50 pack from here:

http://www.usaupload.net/d/8u6ccpuwmhd

AVOID getting any of my 98fe SP packs from MDGx's web site until he posts up the correct editions on his web site.

cryptdlg.dll 5.0.1558.6608 works without a problem on 98se.

I've been running Java 6 update 6 for three weeks... It appears to me to be unstable and causing Internet Explorer to crash...

I've rolled back to Java 6 update 5 that was totally stable.

Will post results...

Latest versions in Office 2003 seems to be:

HTML32.CNV 2003.1100.6252 (KB841532 = SP1)

MSWRD832.CNV 2003.1100.6252 (KB841532 = SP1)

MSCONV97.DLL 2003.1100.6252 (KB841532 = SP1, KB873378)

Latest version of HTML32.CNV seems to be 2003.1100.8165 from KB923618 Office 2003 SP3

for MSCONV97.DLL & MSWRD832.CNV it's version 2003.1100.8166 from KB923618 Office 2003 SP3.

MDGx may also want to obtain those three files and the updated graphics filter files from Office 2003 SP3 (KB923618). Use the MSIX - Patch Files Extractor app to extract the files from the Mainsp3.MSP file of KB923618.

Also can anyone attempt to download EXE files that are posted directly from MDGx's web site? Right now I seem to be getting "403 Forbidden" error messages when attempting to download any EXE files posted on his web site.

I sent MDGx a PM yesterday in this regard... but he has not been around since May 17...

I suspect MDGx is away on holiday...

ok, tested downloading some stuff from MDGx's web site. most of them worked.

however, "Unofficial Windows 98 SE Networking Errors VNETBIOS.VXD 4.90.3001 Fix" link is not working; get 404 File Not Found error message. looks like this patch has been removed from his web site.

And I have uploaded the Unofficial Windows Media Player 9.0 (WMP9) Update Rollup Packs (URP) for Windows 98, 2000 & ME [June 2008 Releases] here:

http://www.usaupload.net/d/91td72ov7a0

I've fixed a major installation problem with the Unofficial WMP9 URP pack for Win98/ME and updated the WMP9 files to the ones from XP SP3 in both WMP9 URP packs for Win98/ME and Win2000.

these are newer than the ones posted at MDGx's WMP page.

As a temporary solution, until MDGx fixes it, I've reuploaded VNETBIOS.VXD 4.90.3001 (the vxd only, it has to be installed by hand) and updated the link in my original post (link), so that it is active again. HTH

Hi everybody,

My web site provider screwed up a huge number of files + folders at my site in the last 3 weeks, and I can't even access them using ftp [they changed permissions on the server].

I'm still waiting for them to fix this, their tech support is extremely slow. :(

I'll let you guys know when my site will be back 100%.

Best wishes,

MDGx

RICHED9X...

I installed it around late April...

Since then I found Word XP (2002) would lockup Windows after a short time of running.

I had been using RICHED20.DLL 5.40.11.2220 that came with Office XP.

Recently I traced the lockups to a small timeframe.

I determined that RICHED9X was the only significant change I had made then...

So, I have rolled back RICHED20.DLL from 5.50.99.2014 to 5.40.11.2220...

So far no lockups.

The reason I figured it was RICHED20.DLL, was that when Windows locked up, the text in Word next to the cursor would have some lines of pixels displaced horizontally.

When I say lockup, I mean full-on freeze with no mouse movement or anything - no Ctrl-Alt-Delete, just the power button...

So, it would appear that RICHED20.DLL 5.50.99.2014 is incompatible with Word XP (2002).

If anyone is using Office XP in Windows 98SE, make a copy of RICHED20.DLL from the Windows System folder, and test RICHED9X with Word XP.

The copy of RICHED20.DLL can always be copied back if it does not work.
