    Re: Why won't they run on 95


    Phil,
    Why can we download a Java VM for 95,98,ME,NT4 and 2000 as well as Unix Linux,
    Palm, Cell Phones and Lego Robot chips, but .NET will not run on 95? 95
    has a Window's registry, Window's API and is the same 32 bit OS as 98. This
    is the shi_ that I have been complaining about.

    Could this be a "clue" that VB6 may not run on the OS that MS will push on
    us in 2003? HELLO WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!

    By the way, I have tried to install the .NET beta on 4 machines now. Two
    NT4s and a 98 machine have been sucessful, but I still can not get it to
    install on my brand new W2K Professional box! And W2K is the only OS that
    MS claims that it works on! By the way, all installs required at least 6
    reboots.

    If you still don't know what I am talking about, go to www.java.sun.com and
    download Java for the OS of your choice and install it with at most one reboot
    if any. Then go to www.orionserver.com and download a complete J2EE server,
    unzip and run. By the way, this is the same J2EE server that has been licensed
    by Orical 9i.

    And why do we need to upgrade the browser, IE to install .NET? Could this
    have any thing to do with the need to have a browser that automatically launches
    .exe files even if they are titled readme.exe?

    Your thoughts,
    Max

    This

    Because MS doesn't want to support Windows 95 anymore.
    Just as a point of note. Win 9x isn't truely 32 bit. System calls are
    thunked down to 16 bit code.

    I doubt it. Possibly in future versions but not by 2003.

    What error are you getting ? Someone may be able to help. .NET installed
    perfectly on my Win 2000 box with only 2 reboots.

    IE 6 is required for VS.NET not the .NET framework.
