    Cant start RR after installation (win98 SE)

    Hi Guino, thanks a lot for RR

    i downloaded and installed RR installshield package (roadrunner.exe) on my win98 SE (Pentium II 333, 64MB, 4.3GB HDD) yesterday. the installer ran fine but failed to start RR Config after that. I got error some VB6 DLL not found (msvbvm60.dll to be exact). I then download vbrun60sp3.exe from microsoft and installed, when i started RR Config, RR didnt produce any error but did nothing. the mouse pointer just change to sandclock for several seconds and back to normal, nothing happened

    please advise what i should do to get it run?

    RR or the Config when nothing happened?

    Config

    config was the one which required msvbvm60.dll, RR asks for another dll as well but lets solve it later

    You can download an older RR and use the Config from it which is tested on 98SE.. RR itself should also run on 98SE, but advanced features such as skins with transparency will NOT work in 98SE. Older skins such as BMV2 should work normally.

    I always recommend the latest RR, but either you'll have to set it up manually in RR.INI (the settings are explained in readme.txt) OR you'll have to download an earlier version like 4-11 which includes the older config which definitely runs on win98SE.

    Here goes nothing....give this one a try.

    Make sure you rename it back to "RRConfig.exe"

    Try also downloading a current version of the config, as I just tested it using VPC 2007 win98 and the current one ran just fine...
