    I installed the 3625 build, after removing the older version and the installation went well. However, after rebooting, I clicked on the Icon and NADA!! I turned off running programs prior to installation, which is good practice, with Win 98. What's going on? How can it be fixed or I am back to the old version?

    I have no idea if that version runs on Win98, but have you tried double clicking on the .exe file itself, bypassing the shortcut?

    Not that this is going to solve your dilemma, but what older version did you use that worked? Perhaps for whatever reason 3625 was necessary, they broke the feature that allowed it to run on Win98se.

    what build did work?
    2337?
    3567?

    Are there release notes for build 3625?

    The user guide that was released in conjunction with build 3567 states that Win 98SE is supported.

    I doubt that 3625 was intentionally changed to preclude use with Win 98.

    I reinstalled 3567 and no problems. Anybody else have trouble with win 98 SE?
    If it does not support win 98 SE then, why the hell didn't they say so!

    If you intend to keep your computer for any length of time, do yourself a favor, replace Win 98 with Win 2000, or later. You'll have lots fewer problems with various software.

    If you can, do a clean install.

    If you hardware supports it, I would second Howard's approach. If you can't do it, see how Acronis responds to your problem. You've elected to freeze a major component of your system, the OS and also certain applications, so it makes perfect sense to freeze the version of TI that works with it.

    Win 98 has/had so many issues with CD recording software, by itself, that was enough reason to get rid of Win 98.

    And ferget about newer upgrades, heck, there are even some products that require Win Xp, and will not work in Win 2000.

    Win 2000 is so much more reliable than Win 98.

    I never went with Win XP, but that is also an alternative if you cannot find a legal copy of Win 2000.http://www.atomicpark.com/ lists Win 2000 Pro upgrade for $144.92 (USA). You might even find Win XP for less, but make sure that your hardware can support XP.

    Make sure that you geta legit copy, as the MSFT Genuine ADvantage Program might preventupdates if not a legit copy.
