Tech Support Guy Reference:
(a) "a microsoft usb supplement is?????"

PROBLEM:

I am currently trying to install the Windows 95 (OSR2) USB Support Utility on my machine which does have version 4.00.950 B. When I execute the install from drive 'a' I get the following error messages:

This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.

Quit all programs, and then restart your computer. If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.

and another dialog box with this message......

This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect of this computer. Please contact your system administrator.

DETAILS:
<UNKNOWN> caused an exception c0000006H in module <unknown> at 0000:bff83937.

QUESTIONS:

1) The second error message leads me to believe I currently have some preferences that need to be changed?

2) Is the USB Support Utility reliable and does it really work? I downloaded it from Dell as linked from CNET as a recommended site.

P.S. I am trying to get my PDA synched and I want to do it via USB. What a shame, I have the hardware interface but no bios interface that is resident in the OS!!

Any assistance that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

I hate to tell you this dcoccaro, but, Win95 b had very poor USB support. Even though it did specify it supported USB, it was extremely difficult to set up and very unstable if you could get it to work. The original version Win98 was the same. They finally got it working in 98se.
Having said that, try these links

Also, have you installed the USB drivers from your win95 disk?

Rug,
Thanks for your pithay reply. Thanks also for the reference links.
Yeah, I think installing Win98 SE is the solution.

D. Coccaro

P.S. The OSR2 version I have was installed with partition magic.
