You mean fpc has win95 support?
I thought only win98/winme were still supported?

I installed rc1 (as is) on win7, thenjust copied the entire stuff to
my WinMe machine, adjusted some paths, and the thing (the compiler)
seems to run OK.
(Just try that with any other complex software...)
I manged to rebuild Lazarus, so I guess the compiler is OK.

So, to make a long story short, I just need the installer to be Win9x
compatible, the current rc1 does not need any special build as far as
I am concerned.

(Perhaps I misunderstood " that was generated using -dSUPPORT_WIN95",
if so please ignore my comments above)

I will try on my native WinMe machine.

Thanks for taking the trouble!
