Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but .net framework doesn't run on win98.
Even if it did, what would you run the webservice with...Personal web
server? No IIS on win98 either.

Hi,

impossible with .NET Framework (ASP.NET runs only on Win2k or newer), but
with SOAP Toolkit (assuming that having the server , say PWS, is not the
issue) you should be able to do that.

As already posted, .NET framework does not run on Win98. However...

A. Make darn sure the resource you need will absolutely NOT run on XP
Pro. If it does, you should be ready to rock.

B. If absolutely sure it will only run on Win98, keep in mind that
SOAP (the underlying feature of Web Services) can be implemented over
standard HTML. The inbound and outbound features are basic XML, albeit
fairly complex XML usually. Your main problem will be in having Win98
actually run your resource and be able to grab the results to send
back over HTML.

Try Win 3.11 for work groups, but you are better off with DOS 6.1.1
good luck
Just kidding
