Secrets of Mastering the Windows 98 Environment: Keeping Windows 3.x Settings for Applications

If you decide to upgrade from Windows 3.x by placing Windows 98 in the Windows 3.x directory, you don't have to reinstall all of your applications. The Windows 98 Setup program automatically adds information about the currently installed Windows 3.x applications to the Windows 98 Registry. The Setup program also converts existing Program Manager groups and adds them to the Programs menu on the Start menu.

If you choose to install Windows 98 in a different directory, you have to reinstall all Windows-based applications to ensure that they will function properly while running in the Windows 98 environment. Copying .GRP and .INI files from your previous \ Windows directory, though a valiant effort, is not enough to run applications under Windows 98.
