    I've been using Anydvd with no problem on Win 98 SE for quite awhile. I installed 6.1.6.7 & upon inserting any disc I got a kernal access error & also a pc crash. It was repeatable with any disc.

    I tried installing 6.1.6.6 over the top of 6.7. It said my trial was up!

    I uninstalled 6.7 & reinstalled 6.6. Any DVD registration is back to normal. However, 6.6 is also now crashing (it no longer crashes the pc, just AnyDVD). I even tried restoring to a registry back up from before the 6.7 install but still have the same problem. Here is the current windows error message:

    ANYDVD caused a general protection fault

    Just go back to whatever your last working version was and wait for Slysoft to put out the next update. 6.1.6.7 is known to cause problems on Windows 98, you are not alone.

    As I mentioned, I went back to 6.6 which was working, but now isn't. I'm glad Sly Soft is aware of this, I hadn't read of any other posters mentioning Win 98.
    I'm going to try 6.5 before giving up.

    Going back to 6.5 seems to have solved it (though I wasn't previously aware of any issues with 6.6). I'm happy it's working again, I hope Slysoft looks at Win 98 Compatability for the next release!

    So far 6.9 seems fine with Win 98, thanks!
