    is c# compiler compatible with win98?

    Although I intend to get windows xp as soon as I get a new pc.. I was wondering if there is a c# compiler that I can begin using with win98.. If so I am assuming that I will have to install the .net frame work. Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

    It's not fully compatible with even WinXP Home. You need WinXP Professional or Win2k Professional because of the IIs server component of these operating systems. If however all you want to do is learn C# than you can download the free SDK and use notepad. No idea if that will work on Win9X though. Since Win9X is only truely 16-bit it's hard to say.

    The compiler that comes with the Framework SDK can be used with any '98 and upwards system. The Visual Studio IDE however only works on 2K and XP, maybe NT.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    c# compiler

    I notice that the above link refers me to ASP .net. Does this mean that c# is not intended for stand alone applications?

    No... That's just the first decent link that came up when I typed
    ".NET SDK" into google
