This video teaches you how to make XP apps compatible with Win2k, but I don’t know about Win98


#7

seen this video like 5 times XD

why did you post it here?


#8

its called kernalEx it only works on some applications like the Opera browser

You’re best off using MSN Messenger 1.0-6.2. Those are the only versions that are either compatible with or have versions suitable for Win9X (Windows 95 and 98).


#10

Well why wouln’t Escargot work? ¯_(ツ)_/¯


#11

versions after 5.0 dont work on 95/NT 4.0


#12

what do you mean?

Actually, from looking at Microsoft’s download page on MSN Messenger 6.0 (yes, it’s still up hehe; https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=31179), the system requirements seem to list Windows 98. Not sure about NT 4.0, but probably could run on there, too.

#16

but it does not say NT 4.0 on there or 95


#17

When I said “Win9X (Windows 95 and 98),” I was generalizing. Also, beforehand, I hadn’t included NT 4.0 (it runs on its own kernel; the NT kernel), but afterwards, I brought it up as a hypothetical (“Not sure about NT 4.0, but probably could run on there, too.”).


#18

ok i understand :slight_smile:


#19

I’ve seen this video several times, but not all programs are compatible with this “patch”, as Microsoft Office was shown.
