SOFTWARE THAT SUPPORTS WINDOWS 98 SECOND EDITION

Here you will find a list of software that supports Windows 98 Second Edition (Win98SE).

For Freeware / Shareware / Open Source programs a link to a download source will be provided.

Note: Do NOT post links to illegal download sources for Commercial Software / Cracks / KeyGens / Warez etc!!!

To find older versions of commercial software,, try searching places like http://www.amazon.com and others, will show second hand and old stock software. Auction sites are also useful but are often plagued with sophisticated piracy!

KEY:

LAST = Last version of software to support Win98SE

ONGD = On Going Development. This software is still being developed and still supports Win98SE

FREE = Freeware (Completely Free)

SHAR = Shareware (Free trial)

$$$$ = Commercial Software. Must be purchased

???? = Unknown at the present time.

Please post any details of current or the last version of software and utilities that work on Win98SE.

Please for the software:

- if it is the LAST or ONGD

- if it is FREE, SHAR or $$$$

- a URL for where it can be downloaded (FREE and SHAR) or purchased ($$$$)

Online Virus Scanners

With less and less updated Virus Scanners for Windows 98 available, users may find online Virus Scanners their best form of protection. Here is a list of those that still support Windows 98. Note: Some require Internet Explorer 6 to operate.

Good topic! Here's my list of Win98 compatible software essentials that have not ben listed yet. All are free.

Xnview--http://www.xnview.com/

Xmplayer--http://www.un4seen.com/

Gomplayer --http://www.gomplayer.com/main.html

ffdshow--http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow

SumatraPDF--http://blog.kowalczyk.info/software/sumatrapdf/

Deepburner--http://www.deepburner.com/

SIW--http://www.gtopala.com/

Maxthon 1.6/2.0--http://www.maxthon.com/

Spybot S&D--http://www.safer-networking.org/

I still use Avira antivirus but support for win98 is ended already and antivirus-updates won't be available anymore in 2008. Not really fit for this list anymore.

Xnview is getting more bloated and slower since the 1.9 branche is out. For the same reason I use SumatraPDF and not Foxitreader:

Though I'd add on:

Axialis IconWorkshop v6.1 - http://www.axialis.com/download/iw.html

Folding@Home v6.0 BETA1 [text-only console] - http://folding.stanford.edu/English/Download

- despite stating NT/2k/xp/vista only it works flawlessly on win98. The GUI clients however would/should work once we get support for 'GetLastInput' through the KUP project. Also, unsure if the GFX versions (uses vid card for processing instead) would work as I don't have any radeon series cards that it supports.

Plenty of my favourites in the lists above. Thanks for the info about others.

My addition is Skype. I have version 3.2.0.175 working very well, so long as I remember not to try video. Skype announce a version 1.4.x as the last to support Win98, but go on to say that later ones might work, they just give no guarantee.

Their forums give mixed response.

This thread is very important, IMHO. :thumbup

So I think it ought to be stickified.

Could a moderator be so kind as to do it, please? :hello:

Only really useful if one can still get the software. Would it be allowable under the forum rules to post the software (assuming the licence allows it of course)?

Hi galahs,

Excellent idea. I was just about to start a similar thread... Glad to see you've done it first!

I suggest that you edit/update the first post with all new additions so there will be a complete list at the beginning of the thread.

I've noticed that lists are overlapping because items are not in the first post!

Also it would be a good idea to create sections like Windows components, Games, Utilities, Applications, Incompatible (for new software titles that will not work) etc.

BTW, I had not thought of actually installing Sun Java 1.6.0_03... Seems to work without any problems!

The installer only says that it is best on the listed OSs but not that it will not work on older ones...

Some software to add to list (long list!):

Great work galahs on the category sections! :thumbup

One suggestion though is that you put the last update date clearly at the top of the first two posts.

This way people can easily see when you last updated them!

I know that the last edit date/time is at the bottom of the post, but it would be so much clearer added to the top.

Also, I made a typo in my list (that I'll correct):

Symantec LiveUpdate 3.0.0.177 - current 3.0 - 3.1+ - free - ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_...3.0/lusetup.exe

Symantec Event Library 11.6.8.1 - current 11 - 12+ - free - ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_...t11/sevinst.exe

It should have been (changes in red):

Symantec LiveUpdate 3.0.0.177 - current 3.0 - not 3.1+ - free - ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_...3.0/lusetup.exe

Symantec Event Library 11.6.8.1 - current 11 - not 12+ - free - ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_...t11/sevinst.exe

Can you correct your list too.

There's still some items in my list that would be good for others to see in your master list.

Another section you may want to add is software that only works with Xeno86's Kernel Update Project installed.

See Xeno86's thread for a growing list of software that works now with KernelEx.

The Kernel Update Project is still experimental so "use at your own risk" applies.

BTW, I had not thought of actually installing Sun Java 1.6.0_03... Seems to work without any problems!

The installer only says that it is best on the listed OSs but not that it will not work on older ones...

That was also a very nice surprise for me! :)

Galahs, thank you warmly for excellent thread!

Hey rainyd, I'm still using Java 1.6.0_03 without any problems!

It actually seems faster than 1.5.0_13 that I had installed and now removed...

Sometimes one has to ignore the "must have" OS information on websites and actually try the software!

I've been using Skype right up to current version 3.5.0.239 without any problems.

I've even been able to get the video test window to work sometimes...

I use video Skype under Windows XP...

That sums up this excellent thread!

Let's pool all the information on all software that still works (or does not work) in Windows 98SE (or Windows Me for that matter).

To all software testers, tinkerers, tweakers, average joes, what do you know?

This thread is very important, IMHO. :thumbup

So I think it ought to be stickified.

Could a moderator be so kind as to do it, please? :hello:

Only really useful if one can still get the software. Would it be allowable under the forum rules to post the software (assuming the licence allows it of course)?

I totally agree with the above comments. This thread ought to be stickified... even if only the Freeware software is allowed.

When I've got the time I'll see if there's anything I can add in the way of software links that are allowable.

Kensington MouseWorks Software Version 6.11 for Win 98(FE/SE)/ME/2k/XP, for PS2 or USB mice (it does not support serial or bluetooth mice). It works great also with Microsoft Intellimouse 1.0 or 1.1 (of course, they don't tell you this) and defines more configurable mouse events than MS Intellipoint 4.12 for five-button mice (two more, in fact: right+left chord and outer+inner chord; chord is clicking simultaneously two buttons) and also allows one to program sequences of keystrokes as mouse events.

LOL .... that's the fastest sticky you've ever awarded MDGx !!! Not that it isn't deserving of this title, for it surely is!

Great work Galahs!

I think a list like this would be best made in the KernelEX thread, so not to confuse people who arn't using the mod.

Okay,

For those who wanted this thread stickified, It's been done!

Thanks MDGx :thumbup

See this stickified list thread: http://www.msfn.org/board/?showtopic=95815

galahs, I know I mentioned having a KernelEx section, but I think you're right about keeping it in the KernelEx thread.

Since KernelEx is an ongoing experiment and has certain side effects, it really is not suitable for a mainstream software list like this.

Thanks for all your work on this list!
