Auto-Patcher For Windows 98se (English)

Recommended Posts

thydreamwalker

Thanks for the heads up regarding possible file corruption between 98SE and XP. :thumbup I have been moving files back and forth between both systems since I first installed XP in mid 2006, and have had no problem, but I expect that is because when I am installing drivers and patches and such from a USB drive, it is a USB drive onto which I have copied my "upgrade" partition, a 20Gb partition which holds all the drivers and patches I have downloaded for everything I have ever had since the days of DOS and Win3.1 - a driver for a Number Nine Imagine ISA card? I still have such! Never erase anything!

The other method I use is to create an extended partition on a clean drive and then copy the "upgrade" partition into it

Consequently, since the problem appears to only occur when files are moved individually, instead of moving the whole folder or copying the whole drive with Partition Commander, I appear to have unknowingly avoided the problem!

I recently added a removable 2.5" IDE cartridge drive to my desktop so I can copy the desktop partitions to my notebook drives. Funny, but it is the first IDE drive I have ever had in a desktop - went straight from the old XT/AT MFM drives to SCSI - Still got a 5 1/4" 80Mb SCSI around on the shelf somewhere - don't know what I'd use it for as I don't own any boats! :lol:

as i use 2-Sandisk Cruzer Flashdrives to load all updates to newly installed 98SE"OEM/CDROM" HDD(But flash is usually FAT32 Formatted also :whistle: )As long as proper drivers get loaded you can unload/download directly to 98SE HDD/Partition?hopefully

I use a SD card adapter which acts as a flash drive and is not much larger than the usual flash drives. I have been able to format < 2Gb drives as Fat16. I have two flavors of this device, a USB 1.1 standard device for which I have 98SE drivers and a USB 2.0 device which will also take the new SD HC format which allows over 2Gb cards. Unfortunately, there were no 98SE drivers issued for it. Of course > 2Gb flash drives HAVE to be formatted Fat32.

FYI, the Flash manufacturers were making > 2Gb SD cards before the HC standard was implemented. If you can find a > 2Gb SD card which is NOT HC compliant, you may be able to get it to work in some devices which were only designed to take flash cards made to the original SD specs, allowing you to use a 4Gb card in them. IIRC there were no SD cards larger than 4Gb made to the non-HC specs. These are gradually disappearing from the supply chain, and even a couple months ago, I had to work to find some.

The main reason I upgraded to XP was to achieve better compatibility with current USB devices, especially drives. The main reason I am downgrading as many of my computers as possible to 98SE is XP is truly Windows EXtra Problems.

Addendium :o

I just remembered HOW I got an SD card to format as Fat16. I put it in my camera and used the camera's format function to format the SD card, then I put it in the USB SD adapter. Most cameras can't read Fat32 if they don't have the capacity for the newer HD HC cards. IIRC, even if they DO have the capacity to read the HD HC cards, they will still format SD cards <2Gb as Fat16 for backwards compatibility with older cameras.

Hi Sop. Thanks again for all your efforts. Ever since installing the previous version of Auto Patcher for Win98SE, my computer has never run better. It's only a P3 600, 256 megs, Radeon 7000 32 meg, ultra lite cable internet but I can run so much on it (eg: Open Office, the Gimp, webcam, usb keys) which I am sure is not possible without AP. Our previous exchange of emails has been very re-assuring to me, will enjoy the new AP extras when they come. Be well, Ken.

NOTE: regarding any hotfixes that Maximus Decim includes in his update packs, unless the hotfix exists as a stand-alone hotfix i won't be including it in AutoPatcher. If you feel that there is an important update that needs to be included, please bug MDGx to have a look at the update and to make one for us all. He's the best person to make up the hotfix, my previous attempts leave a lot to be desired.

ALSO NOTE: -- the above change log is pretty much it ... i have included all the new updates i know about. If you think there's more, say something NOW or wait until after xmas.

Thanks thydreamwalker, was unable to locate that Radeon 7000 SE driver on the ATI site. I am not much of a techie, so I am reluctant to play with new drivers because my Radeon 7000 is working so well. My theory is "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!). Just want to get Sop's new AP update before I Norton Ghost my "C" drive again.

Hi soporific,

I'm not aware that MDGx has any update for this.

The hotfix can be downloaded (via free request) from the KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906216/en-us

I expect maximus decim did this to compile his updater.

However, it would need to be compiled into a standalone updater for 9x.

There is an upgrade to the December 2008 version of Auto-Patcher for Windows 98se available from this link:

http://soporific.dsleague.com/main/?page_id=7

something that is new with this release is an improved installer -- this installer will upgrade your December 2007 program files to the December 2008 release exactly. Previously, obsolete updates were left behind -- which is a bit messy. Not anymore! So you don't need to get the full version to get the exact program files, just install over the 2007 ones and you'll have exactly what you would have if you had grabbed the full version.

here is the final change-log:
