Thanks a lot for your help, I appreciate it.
Do I need to register MSVCRT.DLL file after replacing it (and any other C++ library)?
Are there any entries I should modify in the registry?

Adding a PATH statement to point to a folder with older DLLs doesn't work. Renaming the newer DLLs works somewhat in case of Visual C++ libraries, but if IMAGEHLP.DLL is used once, Windows locks it down and it can't be deleted until next reboot. Using REGSVR32.EXE to unregister DLLs doesn't work for...

Thank you for your understanding. Regrettably, it didn't take long for me to get stuck on another issue. I'm working on a little retro computing project of mine, based on Windows 98 SE with USP and involving a bunch of Windows games. I'm having issues with a couple of them. Dark Reign and MDK2 will ...

Deleting both files fixes USP 3.57 and it now finishes installation without any further trouble. Sorry for the triple post. I've been looking for a way to edit my pre...

This is an update to my previous post.

I managed to pinpoint the problem to 4DOS 8.00.

Replacing 4DOS with COMMAND.COM solves the issue. I find this odd, as I've been using 4DOS for a good 10 years now, and I never had any problems with USP.

Good evening everyone, I'm trying to install 3.57 on a freshly installed English US Windows 98 SE. I check Main Updates and installer proceeds, but nothing happens after that. I see a minimized window on the taskbar that says INFEX, but it stays there forever and installer never finishes. I don't kn...
