Doubt it due to registry entries, but you could try installing the app twice identically to the same path under both systems. (ie shared drive between both OS's). Maybe this would solve??? Not really sure, but worth a bash :)

One more thing I forgot to mention....(important too)
Ensure that you choose a disk/drive partition that has no bearing on either system as Win98se will be on C:\ and XP on say D:\ then install aforementioned app on E:\

That way the app's folder will be visible under 98se (if you use NTFS on your XP partition)

If you install it on ur XP drive/partition 98se won't see it if u use NTFS

Good Luck ;)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
