    You'll probably find this is mainly down to SAPI, disable all voice options and it will probably work - I may be completely wrong and Guino will probably put me right!

    If it is only RRConfig not working then install on an XP Pro Desktop, run RRConfig then copy rr.ini to the CarPC

    RR should work in Win98 without any issues.. You'll need to install SAPI4 (from my links page -- if you want voice, otherwise disable it in RRConfig) and you'll most likey need to install the VBSP5 runtimes (that don't come with 98)..

    You should probably install RR manually: there's a whole FAQ on requirements and manual installation. I do not know if the installshield would work, but I'd not recommend it in such case anyway (if you're reversing to win98 to prevent space/performance issues, than you shouldn't use the installshield for the same reasons). Just make sure not to forget the requirements (winamp, VBSP5 and such).

    It will have been when the forums were struggling and posts were disappearing.

    The logo will be that you are missing flash.ocx I think, download from Guinos site, copy to c:\windows\system32 then at a DOS Prompt type:

    regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\flash.ocx

    Video will be related to mplayer .... check you have mplayerc.exe and the correct paths in rr.ini

    Look at the FAQ for flash spinning too fast and slow performance, download the flash update file and run it in your win98 machine. This should fix your "logo" issue (which really is not a problem but an install issue).

    For Video you should simply make sure you have DivX installed, along with any other codec you want to play video with. Even if you're going to use Media Player Classic, you still need to have things installed correctly.. I mean, did you try playing videos in Media Player Classic OUTSIDE of RR ? If it plays Outside RR is should play in RR, otherwise you just have to figure out whats wrong with your win98 (asides from windows98 itself).

    There's no reason why this shoudn't work if you install it right..
