How can I tell if SK98 patch has been applied

How can I tell if SK98 patch has been applied

How can I tell if SK98 patch has been applied

I am running Sidekick98 and wanted to make sure that I have applied the patch.  How can I tell if the SK98patch.exe patch has been properly applied?  Does the sidekick98.exe file size or date change?

Thanks for helping me confirm this.

RE: How can I tell if SK98 patch has been applied

Buczacz found this out and I am quoting him,

"If one downloads and runs skw98sea.exe, the program installs
  sidekick.exe of 2859 Kb dated 12/1/97
  etwill.dll 571 K dated 12/1/97
  and many associated files.
This seems to be the original sk98 program.

If one downloads and runs sk98patch.exe, 1193 Kb,
  sidekick.exe is changed to 2860 Kb with a 1/7/2000 date, and
  original Yintl.dll, is replaced with a 79 Kb file dated 1/11/2000"

You can thank him for that by going to thread
and clicking on the link like the following one below under any one of his posts.

Thanks for the info.  That solves my problem.  I am having a problem with this forum, though.  This thread is listed as having FIVE responses, but I can only see this ONE response.  How can I see the other responses?  I thought mabye it was my Netscape, but I cannot see the other responses in IE as well.  Any ideas?

Dear PK2002,
This is only the Third response though I have been noticing a slight oddness about the forums, in that sometimes a new one stays new for a while, but that seems to have cleared up today.
Try joining the forums and get a username and password from the main login page at tek-tips.com and see if that helps.
It is a great resource and allows you to get an email if your question/post is answered.
It doesn't require you to give much information and they don't appear to give your name/address to anyone as I have not received any unsolicited response in the last 1 Year since I joined.
Regards Jim
