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

Recommended Posts

Too bad the CDFS patch rloew made won't work under Win95 (BenoitRen is gonna be disappointed). Win95 can support DVDs with the appropriate DVD hardware & latest DirectX drivers installed under W95. His patch only works with Win98/ME.

I don't have a Windows 95 setup so I don't run tests on it.

My Patches use Pattern recognition to make changes. This way I avoid having to Patch each possible Version.

I ran my CDFS Patch Program on the CDFS.VXD Version 4.0.1111 I extracted from a Windows 95 CD. It Patched the File without any Problems.

Since this is the oldest, it should work for the other Windows 95 Versions as well.

can it also work with the CDFS.VXD files listed in MS Support KB article 274175, rloew?

well lightning slinger, so far MDGx hasn't been responding to my recent emails I sent to him about a bunch of new MS updates like the KB961371 (MS09-029) T2embed.dll security updates, the KB970653 Aug. 2009 Cumulative Time Zone updates, the KB973346 (MS09-032) ActiveX KillBit security updates, etc. hope he isn't "lost in space" so to speak.

:w00t: Here's some great news! I've just received an e-mail from MDGx, in which he says he's OK, just overwelmed by too much work to do. He also says he intends to be back quite soon to MSFN and mentions he received your e-mails, erpdude8, and that he means to add those updates to his site soon and post about them here, as usual. :thumbup

Probably.

I don't have the hotfix files to test.

If the Patch Program does not complain when Patching, it should work.

don't worry rloew. It's easy to obtain the Q274175 hotfix files. If you have an email account, go to this MS support link, click on the I Accept button (if it is your first time there), then select the hotfixes you want for certain platforms, fill out the required info, then click on the Request Hotfix button to obtain them. MS will send you an email containing the hidden links & password to the hotfix files.

that's good news dencorso. I've recently made an unofficial Q961371 (MS09-029) t2embed.dll patch for Win98/ME/NT4 which replaces the Q908519 (MS06-002) patch. I'll send it to him shortly.

I may also have to send him the latest dhtmled.ocx (KB973869) & triedit.dll (KB956844) files later this month.

They streamlined the process significantly since the last time I asked for a Hotfix.

I downloaded and extracted the 4 versions of the CDFS.VXD File.

My Patch worked on all of them except the Original Windows 95 CDFS.VXD Version 952.

With the sudden influx of updates, keep your eyes out for the new and improved win9x power pack v6. I spent way too long attempting to update a W95 install the other day, and need to update my compilation.

... And I thought you stopped developing the Power Pack.

Looking forward to your new edition. :thumbup

Hi MDGx, here is an example of the very confusing version control issue I mentioned in the MDDACU thread. This is what you posted in your latest update on 13-Nov for the GDI+ security update:

UPDATED · 11-13-2009

GDIPLUS:

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

New version from WinXP SP3 fix:

* Unofficial Windows 98/98 SP1/98 SE/ME Graphics Device Interface+ (GDI+) 32-bit Graphics/Video Acceleration Runtime Library GDIPLUS.DLL 5.1.3102.5581 Security Vulnerability Fix:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/ms08-052.mspx

GDIPLUS.DLL [895 KB]:

http://www.mdgx.com/files/GDIPLUS.EXE

OLD GDIPLUS.DLL 5.1.3102.1360 for Windows 98/98 SP1/98 SE/ME [1 MB]:

http://www.mdgx.com/files/GDI_PLUS.EXE

Place old GDIPLUS.DLL in %windir%\SYSTEM .

However, Microsoft states in their MS09-062 security bulletin that KB958869 supersedes the KB938464 GDI+ update referenced in the MS08-052 security bulletin you cited. Therefore, the latest version of gdiplus.dll should be 5.2.6001.22319 and not 5.1.3102.5581.

Curiously, the version of gdiplus.dll on my Win98SE system is 5.1.3102.2180 (from WinXP SP2) and I'm not sure how it got to be that way.

Yeah, I'm aware of this new version, but I didn't have time to test it, and eventually [if it works properly = unless you or some1 else already tested it successfully] make a 98/98 SE/ME installer.

If a new 9x installer is appropriate, I'll post it here when I have time.

Please be advised that Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7 versions of GDIPLUS.DLL are usually not compatible with 9x OSes.

You have to use the specific 9x versions Microsoft makes for these OSes. WinNT4/2000 versions may or may not work with 9x OSes.

Therefore all new versions MS puts out must be tested 1st for compatibility.

Thanks for your reply MDGx. Again, I greatly appreciate all the support you've provided to the Win9x/ME user community and all the time and work that it requires.

Ah, I see about the testing issue. I guess I've always assumed (perhaps naively) that an update would properly work. When I manually update a system file I usually make a backup copy of the old file beforehand just in case something goes wrong. I would be glad to help test and/or create installers if I knew how to. I'm not sure how you would test .dll files unless you knew the program(s) that call them (?)

Thanks for the info about WinXP vs. Win9x/ME versions. I suspected that was the case for most system files but I see various people replacing certain system files in these unofficial updates and usually with Win2000 versions. I'm still not sure how I got a WinXP version of GDIPLUS.DLL on my Win98SE system but from reviewing my changelogs, I suspect it may have been installed with Adobe Shockwave Player.
