Updating from windows 98

Using the default installation location for Windows 98 ( ), you can dual boot Windows 3.1 as well as MS-DOS as discussed earlier.

However, you will need to reinstall any Windows 3.1 applications you still want to use with Windows 98.

XP, however, is based on the stable and reliable 32-bit NT platform, which first debuted in 1993.

Future NT releases, such as NT 4., closed the gap, and 2000 added a lot of important 9x features like Plug-and-Play support, hardware-accelerated Direct X support, and the like.

And later 9x releases, especially Windows Me, incorporated some reliability and stability technologies, though the inherent instability of the underlying platform undermined much of that work.

So I have decided to consider all updates labelled critical updates on Microsoft's Windows Update site to be Windows 98 system updates. I have not yet figured out the exact criteria, but I found that sometimes this directory is created in the C:\WINDOWS directory, and sometimes in the root directory of some other (in case you have more than one) hard drive.

Windows 98 system updates also lack an update code as the Windows 95 system updates have (such as UPD980323B1). You may even have several directories with that name.

The process of upgrading to Windows 98 varies, depending upon the version of Windows already installed.

The following sections describe typical upgrade processes.
