Is Spark working on Windows 98? How can i make spark work on Windows 98?

I tried to install spark on windows 98 but after unpacking its intsllation files, nothing is happening. Is there a way to make spark work on windows 98? (yes, i know windows 98 is already very outdated, but i have no choice, some of the computers the company im working for are still using windows 98)


Yes, It’s work without problems but you need to do this process:

Download The Java JRE version 5u16 (This version work) https://cds.sun.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/WFS/CDS-CDS_Developer-Site/en_US/- /USD/ViewFilteredProducts-SingleVariationTypeFilter Use the Offline version.

You can use the Spark’s current version, today (spark258), Online versionhttp://www.igniterealtime.org/downloads/download-landing.jsp?file=spark/online/s park_2_5_8_online.exe

Install java JRE First.

Unnistall the anothers java versions (newer than 5u16), let just JRE 5u16 run in your windows 98 O.S.No use java’s versions newer than 5u16.

After that, Install Spark online version normally

All features run like Win XP.

Disable Java Update.

Edit Registry

Run regedit

HKEYLOCALMACHINE --> Software --> Javasoft --> Java Update --> Policy --> EnableJavaUpdate (change this value to 0)

I hope help the Windows 98 user’s.I think that Windows 95 works like Windows 98

Wrong forum. Please ask your question in the Spark forum in a new thread. Reviving old threads is usually not a good idea, anyhow you may want to mention that you did try “search” fisrt, without success.
