win98 install

I just done a clean install of win98 1st ed. Setup went with no problems, then I tried to install office 97,went through fine till it came to the end when it gave me an illegal opperation
for kernal 32.eventhough the program works fine the only thing i can see is i cannot uninstall this program.the reason i formatted my hard drive was because i kept getting win reg errors and win would correct this till the next time i logged on

Mike, there are two service releases to fix problems for Office 97 issues, especially within Windows 98. If the only error has been during the install, the following patches should resolve this for you.

Here's the URL for both service releases. Download and install SR1 and then SR2. And any problem you may have with Office 97 should be resolved.



If you need more info to fix this after applying the patches, let me know!

Sorry so late getting back
I forgot about popping the question
dennis what you said did work but before installing the service updates
what i done to make it work was to set my date back to 1999. from there I installed the release
thanks mike
Good enough Mike!
