|"You must have IE 6 or IE 5.50 SP2 in order to use the Windows Update site for 98. Also you should update your script engine for use there as well."|
Yes you are correct; for a while the requirements were IE 4.0 but I have noticed this does not work on Win95 with IE 4.0 or Win98 which comes bundled with IE 4.0.
I have legacy systems running Windows 95, NT 4.0, 98, ME, and 2000. I can confirm Windows Update works for all of them. Just keep in mind that no new updates are being released for these system.
You can still use Windows 95 Update from here (requires IE 5.5 or later with ActiveX enabled):
NOTE: This link will provide a "page cannot be displayed" or "page not found" error if accessed from a system running OS later than Win95.
