Because they don't have the necessary files and structures to work with .NET. .NET was not around when the early versions of Win98 were released and apparently MS didn't think they could be patched properely to run .NET apps or didn't want to patch them so they could.

And something else to consider. MS is no longer supporting Win98. They no longer sell it nor will they be suppling any more new service patches for it. This time next year Win98 will just be a very faint blip on MS's radar screen.

In other words Win98SE will be the only version that supports .NET and if any major changes to .NET will not be ported over to work on Win98SE at all. .NET developers will need to target ME an Win2000 XP Win2003 and the later to be realesed OS called Longhorn and kind of forget about Win98.
