Not taking the hint, we tried installing it on my mom's computer, which has Windows 98 installed. Again, the tablet did not work(We could get as far as the light coming on, and the pen seemed to be in working condition, but the cursor never moved.) We unplugged the mouse to see if it was interfering, still no response. I decided to give, but when we plugged the mouse back in, it didn't work either so I restarted.
Upon restarting, the mouse was working, but an error popped up(and if you looked past it, you would see that the desktop hadn't loaded).
This program has performed an illegal operation and must be closed and will be shut down.
If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.
Clicking "Details", this is what it said in the box:
MSGSRV32 caused a general protection fault in module USER.EXE at 000f:00000915.
(followed by a list of registers, bytes at CS:EIP, and a list of stack dump. I don't know if you need any of that, let me know)
Here's a picture of it, if that helps any:
After we click close, we're left with nothing but the desktop's background. No start button, no desktop icons, nothing. The mouse works, and if you press CtrlAltDel, the Task Manager pops up(empty). But there is no way to get anywhere or do anything. From the Task Manager we were able to shut down properly, but still nothing.
We restarted in Safe Mode, but the message still popped up, and except for the words "Safe Mode" in all four corners of the screen, the desktop was still blank. Any and all help is absolutely appreciated. I'd hate to think I destroyed my mom's computer. Especially right before Mother's Day. Thanks so much in advance.
