[Mono-list] Windows version does not work on Win98

There is also the issue of Unicode (or lacking) support in Windows 98.

Serge did something to get it to work on Windows 98, such as, including
unicows.dll ? 

Look in the archives of mono-list or mono-devel-list.

Hi list
has anyone tried to install Mono 1.0 Beta 2 on Windows 98?
The installer does not fail and nicely tells me that all went well. Then

I have to change the bat-file setmonopath.bat to include " in the PATH 
because Windows 98 does not like the spaces in the PATH-name. But then
the real problem arises. When I start mono or mcs a error 
message pops up and tells me:
    The PSAPI.DLL file is linked to missing export NTDLL.DLL:_stricmp
This looks like the lot is compiled for NT or higher iso Windows 98 
(sorry, I still only have Windows 98 and would love to move to Linux but

that still program calling it self Progress does not work on Linux as a 
client (GUI) so I'm stuck)
I'd love either to see this solved by seeing a version for Windows 98 or

at least that the installer checks what version of Windows I have and 
then say sorry to me and that this setup is only for WinNT/2000/XP and 
up(?). Maybe offer to go on anyway, but at least warn,
Seeing that .NET by M$ does work on Windows 98, it would be nice if Mono

would also work on Windows 98. I understand that there might not be as 
high a demand for that but a setup that does not check for the right 
version of Windows is just not very friendly.
Thanks for all the work put in! I find Mono a interesting alternative.
wkr, Gerke
