Vista and Sidekick 95

Vista and Sidekick 95

Vista and Sidekick 95

Trying to install SK95 on Vista brings up an error msg stating SK needs Window NT 3.5 or greater and won't go past that msg. (I had no problem with the install on XP others indicated in the FAQ in the forum) but it will not install on Vista. I have so much data installed on SK it is not practical time wise to re enter all the data.
Does anyone have a solution to how to install SK 95 on Vista? Reply to swhotshot@aol.com?

Dear softwarehotshot,

I would suggest that you Load/Install Sidekick 98 as it installs perfectly on Vista and will open all your Sidekick 96 files.
Make sure that you install it in
C:\Starfish folder and not in the
C:\Program Files\Starfish folder as stated here in Tek-Tips

RE: Vista and Sidekick 95

Thank you James33. Now I need to obtain a copy of Sidekick 98. (my copy is SK 95). Since it worked so well, I never saw the need to upgrade) Other than EBay, any ideas were I can get a copy?
