Help please! I have spent literally 2 full days trying to get a PDF printer for my Windows 98 machine - no luck. This old machine runs my old programs beautifully (these don't run on Windows 7) but I need to print (convert) documents as PDF files. I have tried a number of applications: Doro, doPDF, Nitro, Bullzip, Cute Writer and none of these give me an old version for W98 or they don't work. The best bet so far is Primo and I have tried versions 2 and 3. However although these seem to be compatible with W98, they fall over on installation and don't get installed.

Can anyone suggest another solution please?

 

Also....I can't get this machine to connect to the net with a wireless card to my router. It doesn't seem to recognise the connection. Again I have spent some considerable time trying. Most opinion seems to be that it's not worth it but I only need to be able to download some applications directly instead of copying them over via a flash drive. Any suggestions here?

 

Any help is appreciated and I just need to say that I do move with the times and have a Windows 7 64 bit machine as well - but the Windows 98 machine does some stuff much better which is why I am resurrecting it and persevering.
