Updating from windows 98

First - this is what Virtual PC was created for, and Second - you would then have virtualized CD-ROMs, floppy drives, and everything else and they are all standardized so you only have to look for that one kind of a device, download those drivers, and not worry about the fact that you have the latest whiz-bang equipment. If you were going to use the Apple ][ emulator - I'd suggest Cider Press. It isn't even true that Windows v3.1 can not use multi-gigabyte disk drives or memory.

It is compatible just like Windows v3.1 is still compatible.

You may not see the fancy stuff people use now - but standard HTML will still work and be displayed. Second - instead of downloading a 276MB file with programs that are going to try to muck up your computer - why not go to download the 100MB optional updates as well as the 76MB main updates in their "All In One" area?

(Now - you can wonder why I would ever need such a thing and the truth is - I just wanted to know if it could really do that. :-D ) By the way - I also now am the pround owner of a card that was special made to allow the //gs to handle SD card and USB jump drives. And remember - the //gs came out a year earlier than Windows v3.1 came out. You may not get all of the pretty, sparkly, whiz-bang things that are out there now - but they will work and there are even companies still producing products for them.

Upgrading From Windows 95: The 5 Step Process Windows 98 Setup will run differently depending upon whether you are upgrading from Windows 95, or another operating system.

Then you just get the updates instead of the updates AND junkware.

Third - If it was me - I would download and install Virtual PC and only install everything on the virtual hard drive. Standard Windows 98se CD install via an ISO image which Virtual PC converts to just looking like a CD-ROM drive. As the man said - get Win Image and make lots of floppy drive images. (BTW: Cider Press is also usable by the //e, //c, //gs, and Lisa Mac emulators also.) Just because we have moved ahead in technology doesn't mean those that are working to do so do not also take into account what has gone on in the past.

The thing is - I could do it and it didn't require any kind of special program to do it even. It was a special order card but the software that accessd it came from Applied Engineering from all the way back in the 1980s.

When they only dreamed of having huge memory cards. All of those older systems will still work with the internet just like the ][ , //e, //c, //gs, Lisa Mac and even the original Macintosh, Amiga, and Atari systems will work with the internet.

Auto-Patcher includes: Internet Explorer 6 SP1, Direct X 9.0c (October 2006), Microsoft Data Access Components 2.8 SP1, and Windows Media Player 9.

It also includes every update that has been released by Microsoft and every unofficial update posted on MSFN - It also includes optional components like .

You will see that the OS is (or was) Windows 98se (because that information is sent to the server every time I do something).
