  • Question

  • Hello everybody,

    Can anybody know if I can use windows 98 under windows 7 professional (64 bit)?

    I still have some very old programs that do run under windows 98.

    Can I create virtual PC under windows 7 professional (64 bit) ?

    Can I install win 98 over that virtual PC?

    Any suggestion is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Dear Andre,

     

    I understand that I can install 64 bit version of Virtual PC under my windows 7 operating system.

    But, as far as I know windows 98 is not a 64 bit operating system. Isn't that correct?

    I really do not want to have conflicts.

    Will you please comment?

    Regards,

    Osman

    Yes, for a 64Bit Windows you need the 64Bit (x64) VirtualPC version:

    Windows6.1-KB958559-x64.msu
