Petr Posted January 13, 2007 Share Posted January 13, 2007 (edited) Does anybody know how to do the following things?1. How to compile examples in Windows 98 DDK? I tried clean install with VC4.2, clean install with Visual Studio 6.0, and still most of the files are not compiled and I received many errors. I've read the documentation but no success yet.2. How to compile UMSS from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/257751 ?3. How to compile KEYBOARD.SYS file from the source referenced at http://digg.com/security/MS_DOS_6_0_appear...gle_Code_Search ?(I'd like to unify Win98 and DOS mode keyboards)4.

How to create/decompile/compile LOCALE.NLS file?8. Is there any editor for *.KBD, KEYBOARDSYS, COUNTRY.SYS, LOCALE.NLS files?9. How the PE executable file checksum is calculated? I'd like to check it (and correct if wrong) in my program.10. Is there any utility that would just correct the PE file checksum and nothing else? All utilities I found so far changed many other things too. Both command line version and GUI version would be nice.I just located pesum utility that corrects the PE checksum: ftp://ftp.sac.sk/pub/sac/utilprog/pesum2.zip11. Is there any command line utility that would check the digital signature of the file and outputs the signature validity, date and signer name?12.

Does anybody have Windows 95 or 98 (any version) in Basque, Catalan or Vietnamese languages? 17. Does anybody have Windows 95 or 98 or Me (any version) in Greek version, codepage 869 (IBM Greek)?

It could be about 10 GB altogether.20.

Was anybody able to debug the Windows Update v4 process, especially where is stored the information about the required test for each update and the download loaction? For WU v3.1 it was easy, there are files like http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/R1150/v.../0x00000409.gng (product 90719 = Windows 98, language 0409 = US English) but WU v4 goes via https and even proxomitron is not able to trace it.22.
