    Unanswered: Installing MSDE SP3 to Win98 causes an error.

    Ok I have an MSI file that installs an instance of the MSDE. I recently updated my install to used the SP3 MSMs of the MSDE. I have the installation working correctly on XP. However it fails rather quickly on install to Win98. I will paste the log file of the failure below.

    To create the installation I used the VisualStudio installer. Afte the installtion I use ORCA and edit the MSI with the following values in the property table.

    ProductLanguage = 1033
    SqlBlankPwd = 1
    SqlSecurityMode = SQL

    No special actions are being used by my installer. Yet according to MS the reason for my error is that I am using a special action with a non-c++ dll (KB Article) . I am guessing that this is something that MS is doing. Has anyone else gotten a successful install of SP3 onto Win98? Any info would be helpful.

    I have not gotten SP3 to install on win98. I have tried to do it manually as well as from an install shield application. I get an error message that there is a dll missing. It doesn't specify which dll or give any kind of clue.
