98SE WU Ending So How About IE 6 SP1 Updates?

Recommended Posts

Of course the SP should contain IE updates. Including IE 6 SP1.

What is the big deal with using IE 6? It is easy enough to fix the file deletion lag problem.

For the most part, you are preaching to a choir. Some want IE55, I think most want IE 6.0 SP1 and the updates [such as my crude "automaton" toy provides].

Yes, the file deletion problem seems to be pretty well solved now that I did the IE 55 SP2 replacements. A question: Any need to use regsvr32 on them [someone somewhere suggested the need to unregister and reregister the files since they are replaced]?

Q837251

Q841873

Q888092

816506, 818506, 818857, 827667, 837251 (includes urlmon.dll build 1408), and 888092 are all replaced by the latest cumulative update.

841873 is not affected on Windows 98. I did a Dependency Walker check on the mstask.dll file included, and it just has some missing delay-load dependencies.

If you mean to get the files, almost all (except 841873) are replaced by 912812.

I know but I think 90% of updates listed by CLASYS are replaced too so I supposed he wants to have complete list.

There are even two additional IE6SP1 hotfixes:

Q323061 - ieak

Thanks Petr!

To all of our collective knowledge, is this all there is in terms of IE 6.0 SP1 updates?

Depending on how many of these nine [new to me] can be added, that means a potential total of 58 post-release updates.

When done, I'll post the whole mess to wherever someone who knows best about such things directs me to. [upload bandwith from me is not a problem - 2.1 MBps uplink.]

cjl

ps: Anyone knowledgable about DOS BATCH trickiness willing to help me on a few esoterica points?

CLASYS,

Do you have these (haven't tested them, and at least with the first two, I'm not sure if they're for IE6 or IE6 SP1)?:

323759: http://download.microsoft.com/download/IE6...-US/q323759.exe

318089: http://download.microsoft.com/download/IE6...US/vbs56men.exe

328676 (OE hotfix): http://download.microsoft.com/download/IE6...-US/q328676.exe

813502 (OE hotfix): http://download.microsoft.com/download/0/2...4c9/q813502.exe

Hope someone can help with your DOS BATCH problems (beyond me I'm afraid). :)

Thanx for the updates, the only one I had is 318089, which is a Windows Script update, not technically an IE/OE update [and no minor version update as such], and is/was a standard part of 98SE Windows Update offerings. The rest look totally relevant.

Q318089 is NOT needed if IE6 SP1 is installed. IE6 SP1 includes this fix as well as Windows Script version 5.6.8825.

If you mean to get the files, almost all (except 841873) are replaced by 912812.

the_guy

KB916281 replaces KB912812; last official IE6 SP1 update for Win98/ME. Future

IE6 SP1 updates after July 11 will only be released for Win2k SP4/WinXP SP1.

Win9x/ME are NOT affected by the problems of 841873 - no KB841873 fix for 9x systems were made .

BTW - support for Windows XP SP1 ends on Oct. 10, 2006.

You are right on some poeple not agreeing with a requirement of IE6. I for one would be one of those poeple. I intend to keep IE 5.00 (yes, not 5.5) on my pc's and they will stay that way. I've had bad experiences in the past regarding IE6 while additionally not seeing the real need to even bother with having it. I stick with the base version for personal reasons as well as development reasons. Need older versions to cross-browser test some of my web-projects on for functionality. I avoid using 'w3c standards' as my methods of writing out pages involve compatibility and bandwitch concerns. To convert them to standards means nearly doubling the size of each page. This is where cross-browser version testing comes into play.

So yes, an optional package would be perfect. Perhaps being the same package but as suggested have it as an autodetectable option.

Another reason why I disagree with Chozo4 keeping IE 5.00; some Win98 patches do NOT work unless IE 5.5 or better is installed such has KB888113 and the newly release KB918547. Some Win98 patches DO check the version of IE installed. Run the KB888113 or the KB918547 update under Win98+IE5.0 and the patches will say "This update is not designed for your version of Internet Explorer. Press OK to Exit". Only Win98+IE5.5 or Win98+IE6 configs those patches should work as expected.
