I called tech support, who said, sorry, it shouldnâ€™t work on Windows 98, we canâ€™t offer you any advice.
The only help he was able to give was, install 2000 or XP.
â€œBut my only disc drive isnâ€™t workingâ€, was my replyâ€¦
So I did the only other thing I know how to â€“ got the compressed air out and gave it a blast.
It now works intermittently.
I also deleted a line from autoexecbat that was some kind of mpeg pointer left over from Ulead.
But tech support were stunned that the thing even worked at all on 98.
