The complete list of hotfixes & updates for Windows 98se

Recommended Posts

I compared your Monster List on the first page of this thread with the list of files I have downloaded.

And 237493USA8 and 249973USA8 are definetly not there. (but q237493 is there)

Yes, they are. Let me explain. Rather than just use the filename for the 'short title' of the update, i've gone with using the Q number or the KB number (numbers before 400,000 are Q and ones over 800,000 are KB). SO you WILL find 237493usa8 if you search for 237493 (which brings up q237493) and hover your mouse over the download link. Same with 249973USA8.

The other thing is that some files are named differently. My files came from the "direct download" links posted by MDGx and usualy I don't rename them.

IMO it could be a good idea to add all the known names.

i agree and i will add as i come across them.

Edit: you could ease up in the script code with the filename. As long as the entire number is found in the filename, then the update exists, rather than restricting to the original name. We would then be in harmony.

Ok, I see...

I will add codd to the script to look for the number if the name is not found.

That way we will have a tool to compare lists faster.

Ok, I improved my script in the way we talked above and I (partialy) checked the result manualy.

Here is what came out as "missing" from your list ( obsoletes and renamed have been excluded fom this list)

I added the link when I had it.

As you can see, the list is much shorter.

I added the link when I had it.

Ok here's the line i added to the first post:

Also, not every single update is on this list. Updates for Internet Explorer 5.5 are NOT included, neither are any unofficial upgrade packs.

So that clears a few more from your list. I will eventually get around to going thru the rest so please stay tuned ... I have already made quite a few changes.

EDIT: do i have to add EVERY single old "Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer" to the obsolete list? eg. IE834707 - OLD Unofficial MS IE 6.0 Patch --- actually this for IE 6 and not IE6 sp1 --- i'm in two minds about whether to add this to the obsolete list because it isn't obsolete for those who haven't upgraded to IE 6 sp1. Comments?

I have that question as well.

Most, if not all, lists I've come across simply state the

latest versions available.

Even when they list the latest IE5.5, and IE6 and IE6.1

cumulative patches.

I notice the lists that try to keep up with the flow of

all released AND current patches

seem to have been unable to do so.

If you wanted to go that way you might restructure

your list to group components together.

An IE6SP1 cumulative group may look something like this.

Please notice that ADDREMOV.EXE was replaced with [renamed to] TOOLS9X.EXE .

Actually when some1 tries to download ADDREMOV.EXE, they actually d/l TOOLS9X.EXE [.htaccess server redirect]. ;)

FYI:

About IE 6.0 [pre-SP1] patches:

I have removed them from my web site on purpose, to encourage people to use IE 6.0 SP1 instead.

This is because IE 6.0 pre-SP1 is full of bugs + security flaws, and is not updated anymore, for a long time now.

And besides, IE 6.0 pre-SP1 has no advantages over IE 6.0 SP1, it has actually fewer features and is less polished to my knowledge.

Therefore, I urge everybody still using IE 6.0 pre-SP1 to upgrade as soon as possible to IE 6.0 SP1:

http://www.mdgx.com/ietoy.htm#6S1

and then d/l + install all current IE 6.0 SP1 patches:

@ soporific:

Can you put "(multilanguage)" in each update that supports different languages?

I'm creating first basis from Auto-Patcher in italian (I've translated all program), but it's very hard to know what updates are only in english and what updates are also in different languages.

Another simple method is to separate official hotfixes from unofficial hotfixes.

This differentiation is very important....

About unofficial hotfixes, I ask you if you can compile certain italian hotfixes (originally in english) with iexpress, using your .sed files and italian files that I can send you.

I think that we must have a common contact via email/chat.

Let me know if you're interested.

:hello:

Hi, soporific!

Two interesting freeware add-ons are:

Calendar 2000

http://www.gregorybraun.com/Calendar.html

and a nice DirecteX Starfield Simulator Screensaver

http://www.hope.co.nz/projects/stars/

Note: despite what is said in the above homepage, I found out that if you set up a screensaver password, it will ask for it normally on wakeup and won't let you get back to the desktop, unless it gets the right password, so it seems to be fully functional to me.

Of course, I'm aware that their Win 3.1 couterparts do work under Win 9x/ME, but they require a licence for Win 3.1 (which I do have), while the above don't. They also have some more features, and the calendar has a beautiful interface, IMHO. Even MS at last has acknowledged that a simple calendar is useful, as I read they've brough it back from oblivion in Vista, so I believe these may be timely suggestions.

thanks for all the tips!

I've made some improvements to the list. I was inspired to give some attention to all things Win98 when i heard of the demise of the AutoPatcher project. Hope you like. I stil haven't added all the links. Please bug me if i don't get around to it. :P

For the time zone update you show KB931836. This should be changed to KB933360.

here's an unofficial installer for DirectX 9.0c August 2007, it was designed to be used with the UBCD project. You cannot use the standard redistributable file from MS to install DirectX 9.0c from scratch, you can only use it after installing any of the previous versions of DirectX 9.0c (ie December 2006 or before) ... this installer is in effect the regular DirectX 9.0c with the August 2007 files installed as an add-on and as such is 39 MB in size. I will also (hopefully) be releasing an update from December 2006 to August 2007 which will be much smaller in size, so wait for that if you already have December 2006 (and you can also just use the standard redistributable file from MS).

So just repeating, this is useful for people wanting to include it on a UBCD or something similar.

http://soporific.dsleague.com/downloads/DirectX9-Aug2007.exe

it should work for all Windows 98se/Me systems.

Hey all,

I see you have the MSXML 4.0 SP2 MS07-042 update 936227 / 936181 in the list.

I have tested XML 4.0 SP2 (818081) and update builds 887606 / 832414, 925672 and 927978 with no problems.

However, when I installed 936227 / 936181 it broke XML 4.0 in Windows 98SE!

I tested this on two seperate installs of Windows 98SE - a basic install and an update max'd out install.

To back-date, I had to uninstall the update and then manually delete the three msxml4?.dll files and then install 927978!

Even though there is an Add/Remove entry for the update, it does not remove or rollback the dll files so installing an older XML 4 build does nothing...

soporific,

maybe you should have an incompatible section for updates that don't work in 98SE anymore?

I am having some issues with oleaut32.dll update 924053 / 921503 and msxml 3.0 sp9 update 936227 / 936021.

I've yet to confirm these since I was having issues with XML 4 so I back-dated those two while I resolved xml 4.

I'll let you know when I have properly tested these two updates.

You don't have them listed yet and they might just fall into an incompatible section...

Interestingly, the xml updates released this year are having problems where the late 2006 updates work okay.

I bit like MS dropping the bda.cab and directx.cab files after the DirectX December 2006 release...
