    98 SE Service Pack

    98 SE Service Pack

    "UNOFFICIAL Windows98 Second Edition Service Pack 2.0.1 ( <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>ware) 16.3MB

    Microsoft has never released a service pack for Windows98 SE. But I made a Service Pack for Windows98 SE users. It contains all Windows98 SE updates from Windows Update site and more.

    It is a self-extracting and self-installing pack like Microsoft's update files. Thus, you cannot choice files individually. However, the pack installs only required fixes for your system. Uninstallation is possible from Add-Remove Programs. However, I don't recommend uninstallation of the pack, if you don't have any problem.

    This is only for WINDOWS 98 SECOND EDITION ENGLISH. I highly recommend that you should backup your system before installing the pack. You must have at least 32 MB of RAM.

    It contains only operating system updates. It does NOT contain Internet Explorer 6, DirectX 9, Media Player 9 and their updates."

    I have used the Unofficial Service Pack on about 3 or 4 machines and i must say it is very nice. A great thing about it, is that it removes the limit on RAM.
    VERY,VERY nicely done and well thought out.

    A much more comprehensive list of Win 9x patches, including beta versions of unofficial SP3 are to be found on MDGx's site. NB that link takes you to a bookmark specifically for 98SE SPs, scroll up and down to find all sorts of other Win 9x stuff, including unofficial SPs for 98FE

    In addition a competitor forum (mentioned on the page Alan linked to in his original post) is one of the main hubs on the web for all thing Win 9x related.

    AlanMiller, the latest version of the 98 SE Service Pack on the web site is 2.1a, not 2.0.1.
    get the latest version from there.

    If you look closely you'll see Alan's original post is date 2005, which is why it refers to v2.0.1 and why I pointed everyone to a much more current/active Win 9x forum.
