How to get Windows 10 for free | How to install Windows 10: There is still a way to avoid paying…
Dear PCAdvisor colleagues,
When I try to load some old Word documents from inside Word2000, an 'error message' appears, saying that I must exit windows & load SHARE.EXE before I can run Word.(I have a feeling Word2000, which I set up on Win98SE, isn't set up properly, even though it opens OK, but the toolbars remain hidden, so I can't use it without a lot of messing about with the keyboard to scroll down a page, closing can be done with the mouse, but ctrl, alt, del, still need to be pressed to exit Word).
Is Word2000 compatible with Win98SE?
Where is 'SHARE . EXE' kept? Can I load it from a MS-DOS disk, if so which one? Any help with this problem will be very welcome, I've tried lots of ideas/suggestions, to no avail, so far.
Thanking you, in advance

The Share.exe tool is not included with Windows 95 OEM Service Release 2 (OSR2), Windows 98 or Windows Me. File sharing and locking capabilities are provided by APIs in IFSManager and are not supported in MS-DOS mode. You may not be able to install or run some MS-DOS-based programs or 16-bit Windows-based programs that require Share.exe in OSR2, Windows 98 or Windows Me.
In earlier versions of Windows, Share.exe is used only in real-mode MS-DOS. In order to support the FAT32 file system, Share.exe support has been disabled in the real-mode MS-DOS kernel regardless of whether or not you have any drives using the FAT32 file system.
Some programs look for a file named Share.exe in either the root folder or the DOS folder. This file can be a zero-byte file created with a text editor (such as Notepad). Other programs may simply look for the string "share" in the Autoexec.bat file.
