\"Is this a patch, or can we do a clean install?\"
The Win 9X version is an update patch.
The XP version is the full version. It would be wise to perform a clean install.

\"Besides compatability with the latest Windows Operating systems, what does this version offer (for those of us sticking with Windows 98)?\"
There have been a few tweaks. No details available as of yet. If you are happy making music with the version you are using then stick with it. If yours aint broke, don\'t fix it.
What exactly is that with all those crashes in GS? MSG32, VMM, WMSTREAM etc.. etc......
Why don\'t you define for once why Tascam can\'t get GS stable? It\'s a monsterprogram but seems to get unstable each and everytime again. Sometimes it\'s stable for weeks and then the bloody MSG32, VMM error starts to appear again.
Yes also with your latest build.
PS: How can I comfortably use it on stage if it\'s so sensitive for blue screens???
