Installed IE6SP1, rebooted. Installed core updates, rebooted. And... we're looking good!

Is IE6SP1 on the SP3 installer anywhere, or is it necessary to download it from elsewhere? I grabbed it from archive.org but is there a better place?
Hi there, my first post :)

I'm having the same issues... Did you do full install of IE? I custom install a standard Windows 98 SE OEM CD (no 98lite) and have none of the internet tools ticked, did a minimal install of IE 6 SP1, reboot, install main updates from U98SESP and have the same issues as well. I haven't used the service pack since 2.1a and this would work then.

Cheers,
Mitch

No prob. RL happens.

When I open U98SESP3.EXE with 7z, I don't see the vcache.vxd file. Am I missing something?
The file is inside the cab.

I did get your PM and sorry, but been really busy lately.

Hi,

I'm building a Win98 system on an old HP t5570e Thin Client. It has a 2gb so-dimm in it, so I'm having the >512mb ram problem. I've managed to get W98SE installed to the 4gb USB HDD successfully (using a utility called E2B - Easy2Boot), but it hangs on first startup with the memory error. Using E2B, I can get the system running at a DOS prompt, so that I can see the root directory that contains the W98 OS.

I tried the system.ini (vcache) changes that seem to work for some people, but it did not solve my problem.

The U98SP won't run from a DOS prompt, unfortunately, so I can't install the memory fix by expanding the U98SP.exe file there. This leads me to two questions: 1. what is the name of the file inside the Service Pack that fixes the excess memory problem (so I can extract it with 7z on a working machine), and 2. Can I run that file from DOS mode on the thin client to fix the issue?

If I can't use the memory patch from DOS prompt, does anyone have an idea of what I might do?

Thanks in advance for any help you are able to offer!

P.S. I looked for a file listing so that I could try it on my own, but I must have missed it somehow, if there is one.

Install IE 5.5 SP2 or IE6 SP1, then install Main Updates and report back here please.

Yep. Repeated the process on two different vanilla 98 builds with the same results.
