W95, Version C ?
Posted on 1998-12-01
I bought Windows 95 (Version A, I am told) a few weeks after it came out, like a good loyal Microsoft customer. I recently took the desktop Pentium on which it was installed to a shop to have a 56K modem installed (I was also experiencing problems detecting all of my serial ports). I was told that the Windows version needed to be upgraded to Version C to make the modem work correctly.
The Windows 95 Service Pack, according to the shop, does not do the trick, and neither does another "upgrade" procedure they tried. We decided that the drives should be reformatted and Version C installed from scratch.
My question is whether I can extract a W 95 CD in Version C from Microsoft as a free or very-reduced-price upgrade? This strikes me as a very reasonable request, but their website is so complex (at least WRT support) that I cannot find information on this matter.
I really don't want to buy Windows 95 again.
