Hi All,

I installed a Windows Patch upgrade for my win98 machine and it messed up my
Mathematica functionality!

I am trying to work with Mathematica, but thought that someone here may have seen
the same thing.

I am running Mathematica 4.0 on a Windows 98 PC.

After reinstalling Mathematica (painful), I am getting the following Mathematica error code
when I try to run Mathematica (it aborts shortly after the windows erro code for
this issue)

Mathematica Error :

 "Illegal program operation", "ERROR TYPE 160".

Am I supposed to know what this means?

The Windows error shows (whatever this means).

MATHEMATICA caused an invalid page fault in
module MATHEMATICA.EXE at 0167:0045297f.

Can anyone provide guidance, anyone have ideas?

Thank you for any inputs, Flip
