Utilities

Here are some programs I've found useful.

Ditto clipboard manager

This is a small but extremely useful program. I cannot live without it any more. It's particularly useful in programming where I have to copy and paste tens or even hundreds of lines of codes. Simple clipboard just isn't enough.
http://ditto-cp.sourceforge.net/

Foobar2000

This is the best music player. It supports the Windows 7 WASAPI (with this plugin), which sends the audio signal directly to the sound card without any alterations.

Fiddler

Web traffic proxy for debugging web-apps. Works with https also.

Aptana Studio

An IDE for web apps. I used it to create this site. I've only used the basic functionality, but it's very easy to use and it seems very feature-rich.

Retro downloads

Here is some very old stuff for download, in case someone still needs them.

The last Firefox that works on Windows 98 SE.

Daemon Tools

The last Daemon Tools version that works on Windows 98 SE.

Windows installer

This may be required by some installation programs. I don't know if it's the latest working version for Win98SE.

Tweak UI

I basically use this only for making Windows 98 to auto login :)
tweakui.zip

Cool tool for changing the PS/2 port's refresh rate. 80Hz is usually the best choice for FPS games.

3dmark2000v11.exe

Retro drivers

Sound Blaster 128 PCI drivers

Drivers for various SB models. For example CT4700, CT4810, Vibra128 etc.
You must try them out and see what works.

With CT4700 there may be an error "CONFIGMG.VXD cannot load the driver".
The error may be resolved by copying the CONFIGMG.VXD from WIN98_53.CAB to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32.
You also need to install the MIDI waveset EAPCI2M.ECW manually.
You may also need to change the driver to an older version (year 2000 version doesn't work but 1998 does). Also note that even though the Legacy Device seems to be installed correctly, it may not work with DOS games at all.

SB_e128up9x.exe
