Updating from windows 98
RELATED: Visit the Windows Update interface and you’ll just find a single button — “Check for updates.” Click this button and Windows will check for available updates.
If it finds any, it will automatically download and install them.
Other available upgradeable components include Direct X 9.0c, Windows Installer 2.0, GDI redistributable, Remote Desktop Connection (XP 5.1), and Text Services Framework.
The last version of Microsoft Office capable of running on Windows 98 is Office XP.
Hardware requirements can be bypassed in the setup with the undocumented /nm setup switch.
This will allow systems as old as the 80386 with 8MB of RAM to run Windows 98 (although this will be far from optimal) Important: Only the OEM Full version is bootable.
Internet Explorer 4.0 was also upgraded to 5.0 and Internet Connection Sharing made its debut.Windows 8 offered dual interfaces for Windows Update — one in the PC Settings app, and one in the older Control Panel.Windows 10 retains most of the old Control Panel, but the Windows Update interface has been removed.RELATED: Home users can’t delay upgrades at all, but Professional editions of Windows 10 get a “Defer upgrades” option in the Advanced options interface.If you enable this, you’ll still receive security updates automatically.
