I do not know, what's the problem, the feebacks are based on PR we have in Bugzilla.
It seems some folks have a hard time when the OS is win98.

We do not have any Win98 boxes here, (IS did a good job, nuking them) and QNX
does support there product on Win98.  So what I know is from the usual PR's
"do not work" without further details on win98.

Alex is still investigating here.

Thanks very much for taking a look at this, I will pass along the comments.
