Chris has finished school (I think), so here goes. Seems to work more or less fine on Win98 in VmWare, so it should also work on a "real" Win98.
1) Very important - get VCREDIST.EXE from telia.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/vd ... redist.exe (mirror at umn.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/vdms ... redist.exe) and install it. It should ask you to reboot when it's done.
2) Get the Win9x'd VDMSound (attached to this post) and unzip it in what will end up being the VDMSound directory (e.g. C:\VDMSOUND), then run INSTALL.BAT (registration of "VDMConfig.dll" should succeed, if not repeat step 1 above, reboot and try INSTALL.BAT again).
3) Edit AUTOEXEC.BAT as indicated during INSTALL.BAT (to make the VDMSPATH environment variable point to the installation folder) and restart Windows.
1) Go to the VDMSound installation directory (e.g. "cd C:\VDMSOUND").
2) Run DOSDRV.BAT ; ignore the error about the "Tip of the day". Do report any *other* errors.
3) Change directory to where the game is and run the game/application. VDMSound settings are port 220, IRQ 7, DMA 1. All virtualized, so it doesn't matter what values your soundcard actually has physyically, *always* use the values above.
NOTE: before running DOSDRV.BAT a second time (even in a different DOS box!) you should run VXDSBOOM.EXE first to completely unload VDMSound.
NOTE: Jez jas complied the files updated since the original release along with the Win9x Alpha into a single zip. You will find that updated version here.
