Winipcfg in Windows 98 SE
Posted 19 December 2002 - 10:03 AM
I noticed that winipcfg is by default looking at the PP adapter not the USB adapter Ia m now using. Any thoughts on how to get it to chnage that?

Don't remember if this works under 98, but try on a good and the problem machine...
IPCONFIG /All >dbstalk.txt
and post both text files here.

Try removing "TCP/IP->adapter", rebooting, and adding TCP/IP again.

I used Win98 quite a bit. Never really had problems, kept the patches/service packs up to data as much as I could. But Having worked thru all versions of Win32, I'd be happy with 2000 and XP and forget the old stuff.

Compatibility issues with very old apps. For example I have some DOS games (Steel Panthers I, II & III) They use a DOS extensionand it is rather unstable under NT/2000/XP Home & Pro. They were planning on making ME a real NT/2000 based OS but tooo many apps required tooo much time to get running and tooo many would not run. In an office environment you can kind of force the upgrading (as everything is depreciated over 3-5 years it is not out of the question for MS to say If you want A you have to upgrade to B and get a positive response) But it seemed that the home users were not going to make the jump. So they waited 2 more years, XP had the same issues of compatibiity but they assume that most apps by now people use are Win95 based or better and XP will handle that better. All a matter of timing for what people would consider acceptable to lose their old
apps requiring replacement.
Luckily for me Steel Panthers I was abandoned by the original vendor and a group of devoted developers came up with a Win95/98/ME/2000/XP compatible upgrade that works great. I only play 3 games and they were all pre Windows 95. Right now I can actually play 2 of them on XP
