[quote=siria] Mikk, the core of the problem is you are on win98! The last version that *officially* supports it is KM1.5.4, not any 1.6 variant. 1.6beta still is usable for us with tricks, though not quite 100%. Still it works far better on modern websites than the awfully outdated gecko engine in 1.5.4 In my last post I thought you had already *kernel-ex* installed and the vcredist files, since it was posted about before, but your starting problem sounds like not? [color=red]There is absolutely NO chance to run KM1.6 on win98 without kernel-ex, and the properties/compatibility tab of k-meleon.exe must be set to XP-SP2 with it.[/color] Then again... you said you could start one of the 1.6versions and it was running?? Could it be, you perhaps just forgot to set the compatibility tab to XP for the other versions? It must be set again for every new path of the km exe file. And those additional dll-files of the vcredist-package, which is also mentioned on the official download page for the official old 1.6beta2. Those dll's are not really a "fix", they are just part of an official Microsoft library package, which usually is already systemwide installed on newer computers, just not older ones. This is part of system requirements, similar like other programs might say they require NET-framework2 or java or such. Something important for win98 which I forgot to mention, sorry, since personally I don't have a working printer anyway (ink was always dry when I needed it once every few month): guess kernel-ex can't yet fix the printing bug in win98 with those newer gecko versions. If I remember correctly on win98 with KM1.6 you can't print, and it neither works with the Firefox versions from 3.5 on. But am not completely sure, perhaps it may work with additional win98 fixes, there are some more tools not only kernel-ex available.[/quote]
