    Would AnyDVD would work on a Windows 98 machine?

    No. It has to be Win 3.1 :)

    See Pete's reply for why supporting Win XP may soon go the way of Win95/98/Me AnyDVD support.

    8.2.2.3 will not rip.

    You would need to get a version before 6.7.9.0. That version is when Win98 support was dropped in AnyDVD.

    Glancing through my backup archives you should internet search for AnyDVD 6.7.8.0 or earlier.

    That old a version wouldn't reliably work with any DVD released on or after March 2011, and if you wanted Bluray support you'd need an "enhanced" key license that unlocked both AnyDVD and AnyDVD HD.

    A DVD that old would likely still be "crackable" with DVD Shrink by itself.

    This thread shouldn't be in the AnyDVD (DVD Issues) forum, it is more of a General Chat topic.

    If the DVD contained RipGuard, which I believe was introduced early 2005, then that might throw a spanner in the works regarding DVD Shrink.

    I personally have never encountered a DVD with RipGuard, that I know of, when I was using DVD Shrink by itself. If I use DVD Shrink now it is after I've ripped with CloneDVD so I can crunch a D/L disc to a single layer blank.

    I did say "likely," not "guaranteed."

    Going back to a very old AnyDVD version is not really a good idea IMO. As much as I liked Win98SE, I've moved on.

    I guess you can try. It works or it won't.

    If Windows 10 scares you - at least go to Windows 7 - which was / is very solid - and stable.

    Oh haha, nah mate I have Windows 10 on my regular use machine, I just have an older machine I got recently for Dos games, and it has a DVD Rom so I might as well put some software on it :)
