I don't know if Woody mentioned the fact that you need the Microsoft
runtimes for C and C++. Win98 usually has the former, but won't have the
latter at all unless a third-party software product installed it.

The libraries are msvcrt.dll and msvcp60.dll. There are copies of these
libraries in the bin directory of your server installation. You can try
copying them to the Win98's Windows directory to see whether they
work. Win98 is so old now, it's possible they won't. You can get a
package containing these runtimes for Win98 from the Microsoft support site.
