WINDOWS 98 VS WINDOWS 98 SE

Post by cmljaDI1MT » Mon, 03 Apr 2006 09:22:03


I purchased a printer and it lists Windows 98 SE as a requirement, not
Windows 98, which I have on my pc. Will there be a problem loading the
software for the printer?
 
 
 

WINDOWS 98 VS WINDOWS 98 SE

Truly that's a 50/50 shot in the dark. I've seen many devices/apps not
list one or another OS and still work. I installed a Diamond Viper Z200
video card in a XP box using Win2K drivers. The cards last listing was
98SE yet someone wrote W2K drivers for it that even worked in XP. Other
times I've met the requirements and had a full blown Bunker Hill all over
again.

Go ahead and have a go. To help keep down any app/device interference
during install, disconnect the plug for the web and shut down any running
apps including AV/Firewall.

In my experience, you have very little chance.
I have never come across a printer that lists Win98 SE as a
requirement that will work in Win98 (though there may be such an
animal)

The likelihood is that the requirement for Win 98SE
is mandated by the need for USB support.

Either return the printer, or upgrade to SE.

But, by all means try it first.

Windows 98SE is still a "current" operating system to some degree - probably
because, even now, it is so *** y popular (and who knows might remain so),
whereas Windows 98 often goes unsupported. I've often seen the driver
support - even for mobos - start with Windows 98 SE and later - but not
earlier. Windows 98 is sort of like Windows 95 now in my opinion.

wow! I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO incredibly LOST! NOW I have THREE problems ! and the
fun just keeps-on-a-happenin! teehee. Can someone help me PLEASE ?
Problem #1: I had checked the box indicating I wished to be informed any
time there was a reply to my question. I got an e-mail....I clicked where it
told me to click....it's been all day now and I suppose I could click on that
lil *** until I turned blue & it's not going to take me anywhere.....how
do I find out, if there actually WAS a response to my question, what that
response might be?

Problem #2: I still have to piggyback my questions on someone else's
problem to be able to even enter the question. When I click on Question, the
screen flips, but looks just like before when it comes back. There's no
place for me to enter anything.

Problem #3: My original problem. When I boot up the computer (which in
reality is starting to sound pretty good - and I got the boots that'll do
it!) it only comes up in SAFE MODE. I then have to go to Control panel;
System; Device Manager; System Devices and then I have to delete each and
every line that reads
IRQ Holder For PCI Steering (there are usually 4). At that time, I can
re-boot and it'll come up ok.


Has anybody out there ever encountered this? If so, is there a fix other
than strangulation?


Extremely Sincerely(and almost bald now)

I addressed that question when you asked in Newsgroups:
microsoft.public.win98.apps
Did you ever go back to that group and read it?
(You made no response)

o connect directly to this site, copy the following into your browser's
Address Bar. After this, you will no longer need to connect through the
CDO. You will use Outlook Express to access the NG.

news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.win98.gen_discussion

Now, it is a bit tricky. When I click one of those things, it gets right
to it. One really need stop it & get the following rule in. I do
believe, it will then not download older than the rule specifies.

(1) At "OE, Tools menu, Message Rules, News", create a Message Rule to
delete posts older than, say, 60 days. Also check "stop processing more
rules".
(2) Use the "Move up" button to move this rule to the top of any other
rule you may have, or these old messages will pass to them & possibly
NOT delete.
(3) At "Tools, Options, Read tab", uncheck "Get xxx headers at a time".
(4) R-Clk the NG in the left pane, Synchronize Settings, set to All
Messages.
(5) Click the NG in the left pane to select it.
(6) Click "Tools menu, Synchronize Newsgroup"

Posts older than 60 days will not download. Posts that age on your
machine after the download are your responsibility to delete, by
occasionally going to that rule & clicking "Apply Now". After that,
compact: "OE, File menu, Folder, Compact all folders". However, go
offline before doing those... "OE, File menu, Work Offline".

BEFORE posting to the newsgroup, you may wish to alter your E-mail
Address that will appear in messages posted to the newsgroup. This is to
prevent harvesting of your address...

(7) "OE, Tools menu, Accounts, News tab"
(8) Select the server "msnews.microsoft.com",
& click the Properties button.
(9) Alter the E-Mail address there to something like...
XXXX@XXXXX.COM

Finally, Colorado disagrees, but there is a cave-dwelling MVP around,
who says...

(1) "OE, Tools, Options, Maintenance tab".
(2) Uncheck "Delete news messages x days after being downloaded".
(3) Uncheck "Compact messages in the background".
