Firstobject XML Editor is stealth. Did you select "Executable Folder" for settings location (under preferences)?

The current version of this (v2.4.2.431) isn't stealth; it leaves a bunch of registry keys (albeit all empty) at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\First Objective Software\foxe.

Version was released today. The version stays 2.4.1, but the build is 416, versus 404, which was the previous build.

Very nice program. The screenshot seriously needs updating though as it's obviously from a very old version.

Well, 98SE is sort've a special case. Despite its name, it's a very different OS from 98FE; 95 and 98FE are the two that could probably be grouped, and 98SE and ME could probably be grouped. XPSP2 could arguably be separated from XP/XPSP1, but they're more similar than 98FE and 98SE are. Blame Microsoft for not naming 98SE Windows 99.

I don't get the pickiness - the home pages states the program supports Win 95 to Vista, that means everything including Win 95 and Vista, and in between which means 98* is included. This site lists all the versions specifically, does 98 SE really need to be included when 98 is listed? I think not, otherwise we could be picky about is Win XP SP1 supported, then how about XP SP2, and how about XP SP3

From the web site:
System requirements: Windows 95 to Vista
Please update your "System Requirements" statement.

I have verified that it does work on W98SE
