    Default Wanted: full legal version Win98SE

    I have a friend who has just purchased a digital camera. She didn't realize she would need 98SE to interface it with her older PC. She currently has only Win98. I checked out card readers as an alternative way of getting her pics into the PC but the readers also require 98SE as a minimum.

    So...I'm on the lookout for Win98SE, which is probably fairly scarce these days. It needs to be a full legal version. If anyone has a now-unused OS of that vintage floating around please let me know. Happy to pay for it. PM me if you can help.

    Thanks.

    Try secound hand Pc dealers. They often have 98se disks for sale.
    Maybe Cash Convertors is worth a look as well

    Braindead.......... seeing as you already have W98, is it not possible to get a free upgrade/update off the Microsoft site? PJ

    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    Thanks PJ - I hadn't thought of that. I'll investigate.

    PS - I see that 98SE is a paid upgrade. Not to worry.

    Do remember download all the necessary and critical updates from MS Windows Update website once you have installed Win 98SE.
