Install on Win98
Abiword developers have oficially dropped win9x support.
You can install an old version (2.4.6 or older) but you will miss some great new features.
Is possible to install and run Abiword 2.8.6 on Win98 with Pentium MMX 166Mhz with 32Mb Ram with 2Gb hard disk.
This is the procedure:
- Download and install from microsoft web, MS unicode layer for Win9x
Learn what is: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/goglobal/bb688166 Download: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=14851
- Download and Install kernelex
Kernelex is a Kernel extension for Win9x, that emulate some of the WinXP API. Donwnload: http://sourceforge.net/projects/kernelex/
- Now you can install Abiword as usual.
- If needed, copy msvcp90.dll and msvcr90 to c:\windows\system
Those are available from www.dll-files.com but those files are visual C runtime, may be you have got files on your system installed with other programs.
