View Full Version : Looking for Virtual PC 3 win 98



09-21-2001, 08:14 PM
My cousin needs Virtual PC to work at home with his business - uses win 98 at his office and has a G4 at home. He has determined that the cost Virtual PC 4 is not worth the bucks. So we are looking for Virtual PC 3 win 98.

He has PC Anywhere

I have looked and other than eBay can't find it.

Any one have ideas.

Thanks
Randy

As long as he's not using the Win98 at his office while he's using it on his Mac, he could fudge the license and install the same Win98 in his VPC 4. Then he could get away with purchasing the DOS version of VPC 4, save some bucks, and install his own copy of Win98 into it.

Randy,

A suggestion to save money might be to buy VPC 3.0 Dos version and buy Windows 98 and install it. Usually you can find them on ebay. Just a thought...

If you want it new...
P.S. Check this out for pricing for the VPC version 4 with use with OS 8.5+ http://shopper.cnet.com/shopping/search/results/1,10 214,0-1257,00.html?tag=st%2Esh%2E1257%2Esbsr&qt=virtual+pc&cn=&ca=1257 (http://shopper.cnet.com/shopping/search/results/1,10214,0-1257,00.html?tag=st%2Esh%2E1257%2Esbsr&qt=virtual+pc&cn=&ca=1257)

Note: there a two links that list the software, the first one includes windows, so look for the Dos version which the lowest price is $78.
