    thanks for your answer, the method to get files using floppy works, but the problem it is to the legacy program try to print in windows and cant export to a PDF or to host printer (windows 10).

    I try with different PDF creators like primoPDF but dont work they send me an error to cant locate primoPort....

    1. As a moderator I’ve moved this thread to Virtual Machine, Guest OS & VM Tools > Windows

    2. The only VMware-centric solution was in the thread link I posted before, if you can’t find a legacy “print to PDF” solution for Windows 98 online I would suggest posting on a Microsoft forum

    Try this (found via Google): PDF Creator on Windows 98? - English Help - pdfforge forums
