98 (FE), 98 SP1, 98 SE + ME SHELL32.DLL fix

Recommended Posts

I just want to make you know that while the SHELL98D has fixed nasty Explorer bugs in Win98SE, it has introduced a nasty new one.

When I drag and drop files between 2 Explorer windows (e.g. for copying saved E-Mail text files to diskette), Explorer often crashes so deep that it can not be restarted anymore. Any attempt of restarting Explorer or even selecting things from the quicklaunch menu pops up the same crash requester and restarts the taskbar. The only way to make Windoze useable again is to shutdown using CTRL-ALT-DEL, because also "shutdown" from quicklaunch only re-triggers the popup.

FineSSE displayed the following register contents:

Unhandled Eception in

(I had to type this in from a digicam photo since Windows in crashed state refuses to start anything to save it from clipboard to, but only restarts the popup. I hope I made no typos.)

You need, at least, RLoew's KERNEL32 2GiB Seek Bug Patch, too.

Get it at his site. But you should PM him, in case you wish the German version.
