Bundled Win98 Updates

By Load"*",8,1 ·
Does anyone have or know where to get all the updates for Windows 98 SE bundled together? I am trying to put all of the updates from Microsoft's site onto my windows SE CD. Since they are pretty much done supporting 98 I was hoping I fould make one last CD for posterity with all of the updates on it. I figure MS will eventually pull the updates off their site leaving us all in the cold.

You have a good question, I would be interested in a complete CD too. I already have a MS profile so I submitted a request to the MS support site to see if it is possible.
Will let you know if and when I hear back.

I suppose that you could create a custom W98 CD with updated files in the cab files.

However, you would need to re-write the portions of the installer that sets up the registry.

Then, the W98 CD is fairly full as is.

The sum total of current W98 updates nearly fills a CD on their own.

I download and SAVE as many updates as possible.

Use this link:

to access the Windows Update Catalog.

You can generate a list of updates for any supported version ofWindows and download them all.

Be cautious with updates such as DirectX and IE as some systems will not support newer versions of either.

Thanks a bunch. I appreciate the help. Now if I can just write a script to install them all I think I'll be set.
