    A friend running W98se on her pc is trying to install her new Nikon camera and keeps getting the ikernel.exe error message with an install shield problem. I have been advised that there could be a conflict with her update to Explorer 6.0. It has been mentioned that she format her drive and reinstall W98 but not the latest Explorer. If there is a way to uninstall Explorer 6.0 it may solve the problem. I guess there is no way to do that.
    Does anyone have experience with this problem?

    The actual window message goes like this: install shield engine (iKernal.exe) could not be launched. No such interface supported.

    To uninstall IE 6, go to Control Panel>Add remove Programs
    Find the Internet Explorer Entry and highlight it.
    Click Remove. Three optoins will appear. Choose Revert to the previous Windows Configuration.


    Or

    She can try this. Download and install DCOM for Win98. Here's the link:

    Thanks Rollin and Mosaic for your replies. Because we are of two different computers it may take us a while to work on the results. Please bear with us to try these suggestions. We may be down for the night so will pick up tomorrow.

    My friend has found a resolve to her problem.
    Thank you all so much.
    She thinks she has a corrupt file in W98 and is going to take the plunge to an XP upgrade.
    We hear that it is possible to do a stand alone install on a formatted drive with a 98 CD backup. I hope that works. If not you may hear from her directly as she is joining TSG helself.
