Oh yeah, forgot to tell specs.
CPU intel Pentium MMX 200mhz
RAM: 48mb
Motherboard: Intel TC430HX https://theretroweb.com/motherboards/s/ ... #downloads
Video card: S3 Virge DX 4MB
Sound Card: ESS ES1869F
HDD: 64GB SSD with Sata to IDE adapter
BIOS: 1.00.08.DH08

I've also installed OnTrack to make full use of the SSD because the BIOS doesn't recognize the full size.

Now the vbs script will come in handy with trying to detect with VMs. Its so many VMs software we'll be working our asses off try to please every single user. So far, 3.65 works with VMware and not others and 3.66 works with qemu and not others. I have already started the process for 3.67. Maybe we can find the right combination for VMs because I really don't want to install 10 different VMs on my computer and configure them etc... Then its the versions of VMs, not everyone is going to be using the same build which will bring more issues.
If I were you, I'd find the most accurate emulator/VM and use it for testing, plus at least 1 system in real hardware for final testing. My suggestion for most accurate emulator is 86box 86box.net. It really is just unmatched in accuracy.

Anyways, I have an odd problem with my system corrupting the text. I can reproduce it by opening a source file in the open watcom 1.9 ide and quickly using the mouse wheel to scroll through the file. If I don't continuously scroll as fast as I can, it won't happen. Also, if I allow the PC to go into a power saving state where it turns off the monitor (after the screen saver), it will be fixed when I bring it back out of power saving. Changing resolutions/color depths does not fix it.

VB script is unproductive for VM detection, a low level ASSEMBLER code need to be executed for this task.

Main Updates in Version 3.66 install normally for me (on real hardware) if Main Updates in Version 3.65 is installed first.

The file hosting sites that have a copy of 3.65 and show download statistics say that U98SESP3 was downloaded millions of times. Thanks again, PROBLEMCHYLD, for this good work.

Hi guys,

same behavior here. Unable to install v3.66. Freeze and chaining errors.
No issues to report with 3.65 so I'll probably stick with it

Thanks

Just adding to this.

Same issue with 3.66 - selecting ONLY main updates, the main window minimises but nothing installs.

SPSTART is listed in task manager, and the other exe shows "Not responding", but nothing further installs.

Now restoring the Win98SE base install b4 trying first with 3.65.

DLed 3.66 again and it worked after installing 3.65's main updates. The next step would be to do a clean 98 install and try 3.66 again, but I'm not the one who's going to do that. LOL Either I had a bad DL the first time or 3.65 fixed the original problem.

Thanks again!

22 Sep 2021. CONFIRMATION. Had to install U98SESP3.65 Main Updates & System Core files on my fresh W98SE installation, before I could install U98SESP3.66

Without U98SESP3.65 Main Updates the U98SESP3.66 would stop working when the INFEX window first appeared to begin installing a selection.

There is no reason to use NUSB if you're using the SP because the USB drivers are newer. People do as they wish
Thanks for mentioning this. I've been using the SP the same way for a long time without thinking about it.
