Thanks,

WOW windows 98. havent heard of that O/S for awhile. There should be no problems between windows 95 and up with DWF composer... you may just have to goto the windows website and update though.

works on windows 2000 but not 98...? I can see if it worked on XP and up seeing as DOS was completely eliminated as the "core" OS for windows but 2000 I thought still had 'core' dos commands. Being wrong stinks... its ok.. there is always a first time... or is it the trillionth time?

We have about 5 users here running Composer & Windows 98. It is really slow!! And quite a bit of road blocks. You can not open files with Double click in Explorer. You also cant view DWF's from within windows Explorer browser. But other than that its ok, not great. Work good with 2000 and up. I wouldn't try it on a 95.....Way to Old school...

Thanks for your input everyone, I figured it probably wouldn't work the greatest, just as long as it would work.
