No reason why not - provided you have the correct driver(s) for the hardware installed in Windows 8.

There is no specific printer that you "need" for Windows 98. Any printer with a Windows 98 driver should work.

Many printers work with Windows 98. Any printer that connects through a parallel port or that can be printed to over a network will work

Your problem is not the printer, the problem is availability of windows drivers for the printer. If you find appropriate windows drivers supporting the printer you should not have problems using your laptop with the printer*. *I have assumed that you have windows installed on your laptop.

Windows is the operating system on a Microsoft computer or an Apple computer running windows drivers. Without windows your computer would not work.

If your printer has Windows Vista drivers available, they should also work in Windows 7. If your printer is less than 4 years old, it may have drivers available to download off of the manufacturer's website.

The guy who said "It has to be a MAC computer or else it would not work." was incorrect. When it says "WIN" on the box, that means "Any Computer With WINdows Installed". Nowadays, this usually refers to Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows Vista, but in a lot of cases, Windows 98 or Windows ME will work just as well.

Do you mean the games say "compatible with windows 98?" and you have Windows XP? Games are backwards compatible. Meaning, if the games say "windows 98", windows 95 is ok (anything before windows 98 will work). But it is not forward compatible--Windows 2000, windows xp, etc. will not work. does this answer?

If you have a computer running Windows ME,you can copy the Movie Maker 1.0 files onto any other computer. But Windows Movie Maker 1 has limited functions. And it does not work even on Windows XP as it is only for Windows ME. Although it does work on Windows 2000.

iLife runs on OSX. If you can run OSX on your Windows computer, then iLife will work.

Easiest way is to buy a new one. The older ones don't work on today's pcs

Possibly, but not usually. Windows XP was distributed for far longer than Windows 98, and a lot of hardware that is compatible with Windows XP isn't compatible with Windows 98. The newer the computer, the less likely it will work with Windows 98.

Yes, it would very likely work on Windows XP if it advertises compatibility with Windows 2000.

Most games written for Windows 3.1 or Windows 95 will run on Windows 98. Games that were only written with Windows 2000 or later in mind will usually not run on Windows 98.

It should work... but that's Windows. It doesn't always work. Hopefully you can get some tech support.

In most cases - nothing. Windows automatically recognises a wide range of printers. However - on some occasions, you might need driver software - usually supplied with the printer. Windows 8 recognised my printer without the need for driver software to be installed.

No, Wii Speak does not work on the computer. Windows will recognize it, but there is no driver for it to work.

Yes. I'm using exactly that combination. Once you have the appropriate driver installed on your computer, it works fine.

status.msi is a file which arises due to partly or incomplete installation of Windows xp or Windows vista. to prevent this you shall install Windows xp or Windows vista completley,from the same CD you had partly installed Windows xp or Windows vista or uninstall it if you want to work with the present windows of your computer.Please call your computer manager also to help you out.

Yes, it does I have it working on Windows Vista on my computer and it works fine.
