In search of Win98 Catalyst 4.X and 5.X

Postby brostenen » 2015-10-01 @ 20:58

Been searching (googling) for Catalyst drivers (official ones) from ATI.
Just can not seem to find any archive around, holding those drivers.

Anyone have a link for some Catalyst's?

As the years have gone by, I've downloaded and kept some of the old Catalyst drivers.
Is there a particular one you're looking for?
I can then check what I still have.

And possible those that are avaliable for Win2k.

These are surprisingly difficult to find. I think I have some. A tip on Vogons led me to some of them: you need to search using the actual, official filename. Try the search through archive.org as well. Once I get back home, I can upload what I have.

True... Extremely difficult to find.
I am trying to locate the drivers for my 9800xxl

Might be worth contacting AMD? You never know what will happen.

Have found versions:
4.7 - wme-7-99-98-1-040712a-016504e.exe,
4.10 - wme-8-03-98-2-041020a-018705e.exe,
5.2 - wme-8-03-98-3-050117a-021000e.exe
and 5.9 - 5-9_wme_dd_cp_26397.exe.
The next one is 6.2, the last Win9x Catalyst release.
Was there any Win9x Catalyst version between 3.9 and 4.7?

Pretty sure 98 was supported in full with every release up to 4.3: http://www.fileplanet.com/57690/50000/f ... n-98/ME%5D
Past that support continued only sporadically.

Thanks for the links. :-)
The 4.2 to 6.2 actually. Been looking for them all. Mostly for Win98, though for Win2000 and WinXP would be nice too. :-)
They are for experimenting and playing around, in order to do a current build I am doing.

Ati had the 1-version-per-month shedule only for a W2k/Xp Catalyst 4.x/5.x. W9x shedule was much more rare.
I'm 100% sure there are no more W9x 5.x versions. Only these two.

That P4-Win98 machine wich Phil have done a vid' on.
In his description of the project, I think he mentioned that he used 6.2 for Win98.
Though I am not really shure that I remember correctly. I could be wrong on this.

EDIT
Sorry. Misread. Thought you said that there were no more than up to 5.X drivers.
My mistake. :lol: I am really in need of my coffee right now, it's morning-time.

Version 6.2 link - http://support.amd.com/ru-ru/download/archive/radeonaiw-98me
Just select "Radeon 9xxx series" or below, there is "Windows ME\98" in the OS lists.
P.S. Well, they forgot to add the "Windows ME\98" selection to "Radeon X series" up to and include "Radeon X8xx"... Because the support is beta maybe. But my Asus Radeon X850 PE Agp was working, is working and will be working with this Catalyst version.
P.S.S. You can get this version here - 6-2_wme_dd_cp_30314.exe.

Thanks. :-) I just asumed that AMD did not host any Win98 at all.
You know. All those other links to AMD being broken and all.
