Do recent updates for IE 5.5 SP2 work on Win95???

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win95.general.discussion (More info?)

Hi
Is it possible to install recent updates for internet explorer 5.5. SP2 on
W95, even if it only mentions being intended for W98 or Me? Has anyone tried
this? - if it isnt possible can someone tell me what are the latest
cumulative update for internet explorer and Outlook Express that can be
safely installed on Win95B?
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/downloads/critical/default.mspx

Thanks

    Some can, some can't....all you can do is try them. The ones that can, will
    install. The others will simply refuse to install, in my experience.

    No, I haven't booted to my Win95B installation in over a week, and have not
    installed any updates in a while, due to the fact that I don't use it as my primary
    OS anymore. I will try when I get some time.

    Why not just try installing on your 95 system? As I mentioned, they will either
    install, or refuse to install, and then you will know what works.

    another quick question- would it be better to go from IE 4 to 5.01 then 5.5.
    SP2 or is it OK to go straight from 4 to 5.5?

    There should be no reason not to just go straight to IE5.5 SP2.

    Well, IE3 to IE5.5 is a different story. Your post refers to going from IE4 to
    IE5.5
    Let me add this though.....if your IE4 does not have Active Desktop installed
    (Desktop Update), you will not have those features (Quick Launch bar, and so forth)
    after you upgrade either. So, if you want them, install the Desktop Update prior to
    upgrading IE.

    yup it does have active desktop, I downloaded the 5.5. SP2 from
    http://browsers.evolt.org/ , its an .exe file about 85 MB. I assume to
    install, you just double click or is there something more complicated
    involved? I note that a version of 5.5 with active desktop is availiable
    from http://www.hpcfactor.com/downloads/msie/ie55sp2/default.asp I assume
    this is for people who haven't had IE4 with active desktop previously
    installed? They also have a list of recommended updates and clean install
    instructions for 95b:

    I have not downloaded the 85MB file from evolt.org, so I can't tell you what process
    it follows. I am on a dial-up connection, and did not see fit to spend that much
    time downloading a file I don't need. :-)

    It may just start an installation when you double-click it, or it may extract its
    files into a sub-folder or folders, with it necessary to manually launch the
    ie5setup.exe file therein, afterwards. You should find out soon enough. A report
    back with exactly what process is used would be helpful to others.

    And yes, I too assume the download includes AD, as you suggest.

    Awww, it only takes 4 1/4 hours @ 50666.

    A snip from my "where to get it" canned response:
    -------
    After downloading, double-click on the 84MB file. It should
    automatically create a new sub-folder under its current location
    called "IE 5.5 SP2 Full", and auto-extract yet another 84MB of
    CAB files and a few EXEs into it. To install, go into the new
    sub-folder and run ie5setup.exe

    Thanks for the confirmation, MasterB....I thought that was the scenario, but never
    ran through it my self.

    another question-- should I install DUN 1.3 before or after IE 4 to 5.5 SP2
    update? Should I install DUN 1.4, if so at what point, or should I not
    bother installing 1.3 before 1.4???

    Thanks

    Will J

    It should not matter when you install the DUN update, but skip 1.3 and just install
    DUN 1.4 for Win95. I also suggest you install the Wunsock 2 Update for Win95, and
    follow it all up with the Year 2000 Update for Winsock 2.

    OK I was just concerned that maybe the 5.5 SP2 update included a DUN update,
    and perhaps installing it after DUN 1.4 may make it revert to an older
    version

    Okay, here's the whole step-by-step list I made the last time I switched to a newer,
    bigger hard drive. Just a reference to help me install 95, then get IE5.5 installed
    and updated with all the latest (more or less) patches installed in sequential order.

    I have all the CAB files and updates on a spare drive. You can probably ignore
    the first section (install 95), and the second (update 95) unless you spot any
    updates you've missed. The third section updates IE.

    ----------------------------------------------

    Connect OS drive as slave
    Boot with floppy
    FDISK drive (/w FAT32?)
    >Restart (floppy in)

    FORMAT hard drive
    Create C:\Windows\Options\Cabs
    Copy all .cab files from slave to Cabs folder
    Change to C:\Windows\Options\Cabs
    Run SETUP.EXE (have Product Key ready)
    >Restarts

    Does lots of stuff
    >Restarts

    ----------------------------------------------
    Go to W95 Updates folder on slave

    168115us5.exe "Legacy Credential Caching"

    msdun13.exe "Dial-Up Networking 1.3" (install DUN 1.4 instead?)
    >Restarts

    -Change to "Windows logon" in Network to kill password prompt

    238453US5.exe "Spoofed Route Pointer"

    w95ws2setup.exe "Windows Socket 2 Update"
    >Manual restart

    y2kvdhcp.exe "DUN 1.3/Winsock2 Year 2000 Update"
    (says DUN 1.4 is newer)

    ----------------------------------------------
    Install other programs, games, sound drivers,
    modem, video drivers, etc.

    Getting a little OT here, but a note on your procedure......unless you have an
    awfully old machine, the first thing after installing Windows 95 would be to install
    any motherboard/chipset drivers/patches for Win95, to allow Win95 to recognise all
    the Device Manager entries correctly. Most of those Win95 mobo patches allow the
    newer busses to be enumerated correctly. A VIA chipset would additionally need the
    4-in-1 drivers.
    If installing OSR2.x (Win95B or C), the USB Supplements (there are two of them) need
    to be installed with a reboot each, prior to anything else.

    I personally recommend the AMD patch, whether you have an AMD system or not.
