Python 2.6 is not supported on Windows 98 and earlier. You need at least
Windows 2000 with a recent service pack.
So your response is either, you don't know if there is a fix, or 'No
way in h377.' You couldn't figure out by my post that I already knew
Get off your high horse. Dumping on volunteer helpers is a good way to
drive them away.
It was not obvious, without closely reading your original post, and even
then it is not clear, that you *knew* than 2.6 was not supported on
Win98. You could have asked 'I know 2.6+ is not officially supported in
win98. Does anyone know a workaround other than upgrading windows or
sticking with 2.5?". *That* would have been clear.

I'm sorry, but if I asked where the nearest gas station was, I
wouldn't expect someone to answer, "You can't get there because your
out of gas."
I had a specific question and I got a non-specific non-answer.
If they didn't know, they should not have answered.
It was not obvious, without closely reading your original post...
So it WAS obvious to anyone who was PAYING ATTENTION?
Life is not a dress rehersal. If you don't get it right, things like
the BP's oil spill, Chernobyl, and 3 mile island happen. Perhaps I'm
being extreme, but computer programs underly our entire civilization
today. Computers dump stock, and Billions are lost, needlessly
affecting everyones life. Trains crash, boats sink, and psychos like
me go off the deep end, because no-one is paying attention.
