Windows 98 web page keeps updating
That was really nice to be able to do that but it also meant the entire screen on the //gs was taken up with disk drive icons.The thing is - I could do it and it didn't require any kind of special program to do it even. It was a special order card but the software that accessd it came from Applied Engineering from all the way back in the 1980s.Third - If it was me - I would download and install Virtual PC and only install everything on the virtual hard drive. Standard Windows 98se CD install via an ISO image which Virtual PC converts to just looking like a CD-ROM drive. As the man said - get Win Image and make lots of floppy drive images. (BTW: Cider Press is also usable by the //e, //c, //gs, and Lisa Mac emulators also.) Just because we have moved ahead in technology doesn't mean those that are working to do so do not also take into account what has gone on in the past.First - this is what Virtual PC was created for, and Second - you would then have virtualized CD-ROMs, floppy drives, and everything else and they are all standardized so you only have to look for that one kind of a device, download those drivers, and not worry about the fact that you have the latest whiz-bang equipment. If you were going to use the Apple ][ emulator - I'd suggest Cider Press. It isn't even true that Windows v3.1 can not use multi-gigabyte disk drives or memory.But there should be nothing critical from those packs missing from Auto-Patcher.
Auto-Patcher includes: Internet Explorer 6 SP1, Direct X 9.0c (October 2006), Microsoft Data Access Components 2.8 SP1, and Windows Media Player 9.
You may not see the fancy stuff people use now - but standard HTML will still work and be displayed. Second - instead of downloading a 276MB file with programs that are going to try to muck up your computer - why not go to download the 100MB optional updates as well as the 76MB main updates in their "All In One" area?
Then you just get the updates instead of the updates AND junkware.
This can be verified by looking at the logs and finding where I logged in to Bleeping Computers.
You will see that the OS is (or was) Windows 98se (because that information is sent to the server every time I do something).
