I understand the problem, but is it the intention that zope is not
supported on win98?

Yes, I believe this is intentional. Windows 98 is a seven year old OS
with  insufficient infrastructure to reliably run server tasks anyway. At
least  get Windows 2000, which has a decent kernel.

However that does not mean that Zope won't run on Windows 98. For a recent
project where we ship and install Zope on all customers desktop machines I
had to do a lot of testing especially on Windows 98.

I've been using zope 2.7.4 on win 98 for some development/testing, not as a
real server.

But I'm confused by your statement: if zope 2.8.4 is calling an NT security
function, not available in win98, then it does NOT run on win98?? DO you
mean there is something wrong with my win98 setup or that zope 2.8.4 could
be patched to overcome this issue?

Probably this is just in the start sequence. You cannot, of course, run Zope as a service in Win98, since it understands no such thing. Quite possibly you can use runzope or whatever to execute it in a console.

I can't say exactly as the traceback has been edited out of this thread (and I've deleted the old messages).

FYI, the last time I tried Zope on Win98 was Zope 2.2.
