SSP and Windows 98

November 19, 2002 Written by Charles Cook

The custom SSP I'm implementing needs to work with Windows98 clients so I did some testing yesterday. I installed Windows98 onto a VMWare session but this didn't work very well: the os kept hanging. Someone mentioned they had also had problems with Win98 with VMWare so I had to find a machine to install onto (note: BootDisk.com was useful for getting hold of a boot floppy).

Once I had implemented the Ansi versions of the SSP entry point and those SSP functions which take string parameters, the SSP worked fine.
