Reverse Compatibility

#1
I recently purchased software "for Windows XP". My question is could that software be used on Win98?

I have tons of Software for Windows 98 (games and such) that I cannot install and load on XP but is my XP software reverse compatible with Win98.

On the box of the Software in question, it only said "Win2000, XP compatible".

So, whats the deal?
Thanks

Usually on the Software Box it will have a "System Requirements" section. If the "Minimum Requirements" Part includes Win 98 in the "OS" listing then it should be fine if not then I wouldn't load it.

It is backwards compatible with Windoz down through 9.x

Even the uninstaller upgrade to 6.5.1 goes back to win 95.
