Specs: Windows 95, 48MB
I have a Windows 95B OSR2 4.00.950B/4.00.1111 CD (the edition without the x:\other\usb folder) and I would like to add USB support using USBSUPP.EXE and USBUPD2.EXE.

USBSUPP.EXE installs v4.03.1212 files, USBUPD2.EXE updates them to v4.03.1214. Installing the second without the first renders Windows 95 unbootable.

I already have USBSUPP.EXE (en-us) and USBUPD2.EXE (en-us) downloaded from usbman page, but these are not what i want.

I also found all localized versions for usbupd2.exe (in the form of floppy image executable, renamed to usbupdxx.exe where xx is the country) here and here, so that takes care of the second file.

All I'm missing now is USBSUPP.EXE (v4.03.1212) in PT-PT (Portugal). Thanks in advance!

I only do what the voices in my head command...

Don't mess about with all that, Windows 95 is a museum piece and the "USB support" that Microsoft added was a con. You need Windows XP or later for full USB support otherwise you will be forever sorting out why a USB device doesn't work.

It's exactly because it is a museum piece that i want to find USBSUPP.exe (v4.03.1212) in PT-PT (Portugal). By adding usbsupp and usbupd2 it will be the same as having Windows 95B OSR 2.1 (4.30.1212/4.30.1214). Should i have mention that it was for nostalgia/collection sake? I also have the last working versions of Internet Explorer (5.5 SP2), DirectX (8.0a) and MSN Messenger (5.0) for Windows 95.

Did you know that MSN Messenger 5.0 still successfully connects to Windows Live if you change its version number with Resource Hacker? :P

✔ Best Answer
Have a look at this page, a little below halfway down:

If the old links do not work, at least you have the original file names of the updates that you can search for with Google.

This page is linked from MDGx's website (www.mdgx.com), which may also be helpful to you. If you don't have any luck, you may try your question at MSFN as there is still an active Win9x community there.

Thanks for the info, I tried MSFN that as I thought, I won't get it from M$, so I'm stuck at searching over the web or maybe I'll get lucky and find someone with the original Windows 95 OSR2.1 or that collected all updates in my language...
