  1. I'm going through this: http://winprog.org/tutorial/. I figure it's a pretty good start.
  2. I know ReactOS aims to make a Windows 2000/XP compatible OS eventually, but it is taking a while, and I understand it is a large project. I see people here like Tihiy and Xeno86do so much for hacking Win98, and I think it would be cool and fun to do. However, I know nothing about Win32 programming - I just use Qt for GUIs. So what is the best way to go about it? I imagine I need to learn Win32 API and such before I have any hope of doing good work in this area. And what would be the most helpful thing to work on? Maybe try and make Wine GDI work on Win98 and then improve it? Maybe I'll never get anything done, but I can dream, right? :
  3. Use http://imageshack.us/ - it's much more convenient, and you can post a thumbnail here.
  4. Probably because the Java standard has moved forward and Microsoft's implementation hasn't.
  5. My guess is because all the NTFS access layers for Win98 just have read-only support in the free versions. http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/ntfswin98.shtml http://diskinternals.com/products/ntfs-reader/ http://www.paragon-gmbh.com/f_ntfs.htm
  6. This method does work. I asked MS for Q243220 and they sent to to me, no questions asked. Quick, too - they sent it the day after I emailed. I followed sybesma's script pretty closely. To: wrhelp@microsoft.com Subject: Request for fix for KB Q243220 Hi, My computer is currently running Windows 98 SE, and I'm getting an error message that says this: The remote server machine does not exist or is unavailable (Error 462) After searching the Help and Support KB, I found an article titled "COM Internet Services Do Not Work Without ProxyOverride Entry" (Q243220) which mentions my exact problem. Is there any way you can e-mail me the fix mentioned in the article? Thanks, The support email specifically said they were sending me the English version, so I imagine localized versions exist.
