And yes, MS released a fix for 98SE. The list just keeps on growing I’ve forgotten my widows. Florida, USA Local time: So while it is better than nothing, going to the Windows Update site is a better way to update until support stops. I don’t know if it really qualifies as “bloat” since it’s mostly fixes pacl updates for existing Windows components that would be present anyway, or that you would otherwise have to manually install sooner or later.
You won’t know what your missing if you don’t try it. It’s installation method isn’t broken; it delivers the fixes you need regardless of the state of irrelevant things that tick off broken MS installers, etc.
VOGONS • View topic – Thoughts on Win98′ Unofficial Service Pack ?
Just shut down all running programs before you start the install. Make jnofficial to do your reading and install the other updates too.
The user selectable extras like ASPI are nice to just get installed all in one shot. Also, it only works with the English version of Windows 98 SE.

Thus, by eliminating the arbitrary arrogant scripting restriction, the code, written by MS’s programmers to apply the fix to 98SE as well, etc.
But I saw no reason serbice diss the Service Pack or other voluntarily provided resources. The folks designing them are not amatuer’s. Regardless of their back-story, these are official MS updates, windowa with KB articles [some of which have themselves disappeared; there are websites devoted to “lost” articles archiving], and you just cannot get them from WU.
Anyone wishing to continue reinstalling those OSes willl have to save the updates. Some of MS’s policies with regard unofficiak these “lost” updates are totally arrogant, and in some cases attempts to extort money out of fools willing to part with their loot, meaning some corporate types who paid serious money to get the fixes they really unofficial windows 98 se service pack 2.1a.
I will pass on this as U suggest. Idaho, USA Local time: But I figured it couldn’t hurt to already have it in case some new program or game makes use of it. But no thanks to MS or its WU for any of that! For anyone using this, don’t forget you still need to get the Internet Explorer, Direct X, Windows Media Player, and MDAC updates, as well as any operating system add-on’s not included in his pack that you want. I am a consultant to businesses and home users of all flavors of Windows.
These folks keep 98SE optimized for today’s environment. I’ll later go into just how much you have been let down, but first I want to expound on just what the 98SE Serice represents: Lots of bugs are fixed.
