Recently, (Windows 98 + Virtual Machine + 256 colors – part 1 — https://twentymegahertz.wordpress.com/2016/07/10/windows-98-virtual-machine-256-colors-part-1/) I was trying to install a 3D walkthrough application that was developed in later half of 1998 as a technology demonstration for the Intel Pentium III, which was launched in mid 1999. The application was developed using Visual C++ 6, DirectX 6.1, and worked on Windows 98.

Initially, I tried to make the application work on a Windows 98 installed inside VirtualBox as well as inside VMWare. But the application did not work.

Next, I downloaded Microsoft VirtualPC 2007. I installed it and then installed Windows 98. Finally, I seem to have what I wanted. The Windows 98 installation inside VirtualPC is able to change to 256 colours. Additionally, I am also able to change the screen resolution to 800×600 as well as 1024×768.

Now I need to try installing DirectX and the 3D walkthrough application to see if it works.
