Hi wobblescat


It's a rough go to run VMWare on a Win98 platform. It's more common to run Win98 from within VMWare - than for Win98 to be the host platform. Win98 has all the resource heaps usage limitations, which Linux & the Win2000/XP/Vista/7 series don't suffer from.

Here are VMWare's system suggestions
For a typical host system, we recommend that you have a 400MHz or faster processor (500MHz recommended) and 512MB RAM minimum (1GB RAM recommended). You must have enough memory to run the host operating system, plus the memory required for each guest operating system and for applications on the host and guest. See your guest operating system and application documentation for their memory requirements. VMware Player requires approximately 150MB of disk space to install the application.
_______________

If, on the other hand, you are attempting to run Win98 from within VMWare: what OS is the host? And does the 98 virtual machine error at start?

Best of luck

Do you have latest version of C++ Runtime Package from MS installed?

If not I would advise updating. Worked for my C++ Runtime prob.
Cheers,
Mike
