1. Dll files (msvcrt.dll and msvcp60.dll) both from
0.9.3 sim distributive and from CVS are corrupt.
Widnows does not think that they are dll files at all.

2. When I tried to install sim on recently installed
win98, it refused to work at all becouse msvcp60.dll is
corrupted

3. On my current win98 desktop sim starts well, but it
crashed when I tried to write log file (sim -d7). Error
was in msvcrt.dll. As far as I understand it happend
cose my msvsct.dll was old(v. 5.00.7128)

4. Problems 2 and 3 were solved by intalling "Microsoft
Libraries Update" from here:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows98/downloads/contents/wurecommended/s_wufeatured/libraries/license.asp

It contains
Msvcrt.dll v.6.10.8924.0
msvcp60.dll v.6.00.8972.0
and some other dll wich is not important for sim, as
far as i guessed.

5. Also problems 2 and 3 can be solved just by placing
dll files
Msvcrt.dll v.6.10.8924.0
msvcp60.dll v.6.00.8972.0
instead of the files that were in WINDOWS\SISTEM
directory after sim installation(I tested it on another
win98 recently installed instance)

6. That is why I offer to replace Msvcrt.dll and
msvcp60.dll from CVS with that ones that I got from
Microsoft Libraries Update, and I hope after that sim
would work correctly on any win98 desktop.

I've put this files here:
