Windows 9x question about 32-bit and 16-bit software installation
It's week #5 and I need help with another question in my A+ Operating Systems class. You all have been great in helping me to find the answers to these testy questions...I think I may have the answer in this one, but I am not thoroughly convinced, so here goes.
Use the __________ applet in the Control Panel when installing 32-bit software designed for Windows 9x. Use the _________ option on the Start menu when installing older 16-bit software.
I think that the answers might be Add/Remove Programs and then the second one might be Drive Converter?
Thanks for your help!

Well, to be honest it sounds like a BS question. There is no answer AFAIK.
I would go with your answer for the first part, but not the second.
But, it has been many years since I have run 98. At this point I would refuse to work with it. If they are still running 98, they need to upgrade.
It doesn't specify an OS, but I assume it is 98.My computer is bigger than yours!

you are correct on #1...the answer would be add/remove programs
for #2 the answer would be the Run option

Not to threadcrap, but this is the problem with all the "+" exams. They want ONE answer on how to do something.
This could be done several ways. You dont HAVE to use add/remove or Run to do either. You could just browse to the installer, let the autorun do it, or just run it from the desktop if it is a single executable.My computer is bigger than yours!

Thanks for your help. Just to let you know... this is an OS class, but the book discusses 9x to start and we will end up in XP.

the 'problem' as you state it also occurs on many of the mcse exams. oftentimes, there are more than one possible answer (depending on one's intepretation) but you need to find the 'best' answer.

AKA the MS answer.
Well, the 98/ME portion of the test is easy. The answer is always to upgrade to XP.My computer is bigger than yours!

PresterJohn has it right, 32 bit-add/remove, 16 bit installs from "run".
