    Hello, has someone here successfully ran windows 98 on a New 3DS XL? I've been wanting to do this badly but couldn't find the right img file.

    -no they can not-
    Thanks.

    About wether or not it's illegal:

    Technically yes but since it's no longer published or being sold and the company is likely out of business then there's not much chance of you getting in trouble.

    So GBATEMP nor those sites, will get in trouble, by sharing it. Also GBATEMP is illegal in some countries, too, so why are they still online?

    There will be no sharing of Windows 98 installation files here. Microsoft may not sell this version of Windows anymore, but the fact is that it remains as copyrighted content so whether or not people consider it abandonware is completely non-relevant as far as GBAtemp's rules goes.

    Alright, I didn't share it, but still it's not more like Microsoft sues TEMP, for ie MS BOB

    The rules are there to protect GBAtemp by taking precautions against possible causes for legal actions rather than to risk things and hope that there won't be any future legal issues.


    That being said, let's stay on topic. People may not share the installation files here, but providing instructions on how to make it work is still allowed.

    abandonware is an ethical stance, not a legal one. It would be interesting to see how the courts ruled on abandonware though. As far as I know, they've avoiding cases like that (if any were brought to their attention)

    And how well does 98 run on new 3ds hardware anyway? I thought it was just 95 that someone was able to run via linux emulated dos or some such thing?

    What he asked is completely fine. Bat files are just scripts that can be written by anyone.
