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

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....
