Unfortunately the testing ended there as the system no longer worked properly without a sound card.
(I deleted your previous message since you put only the [deleted] message in it )

So you are telling that (even if in a slow way) the installation process is supported also by Win98..

Are you sure it's NeoLite? I'm pretty sure it's not neolite (if you want I can tell you which one is used, I don't think it's a scret :) ), but still the same protector as always from 2 (and maybe 3) years to now..
However the protector used is pretty slow on old machines, especially with some antivirus (not updated Norton, McAfee v7 and later etc.. It's a bit faster with NOD32)..
You can notice this majorly on Win 9.x systems instead of WinXP ones because WinXP uses a better handling of the simultaneous processes, while with old Windows the pc hanged until the antivirus unpacking process was ended..
