Oh my god, I can't help but I'm afraid, Win98/II really sucks (more...) !

Microsoft appearently wants to give the impression that their new "operating"
systems nothing have to do with DOS any more, so compatibility for DOS apps is
removed more and more from version to version. They want to prevent people from
using such "ancient" DOS software like XTree, instead of buying the latest
multi-$-mega ... stuff...

(Un- ?)fortunately I don't have any Win98 version installed on my computers,
so I can't test that problems you have. Sometime I think the only solution
would be to downgrade to Win95...

Anyway, are you sure you have set item #4 in the configuration screen
"Disk logging method" to "STANDARD" (and *not* the default "QUICK") ??
This normally helps with many problems on XTree and Win98 !

Hm, what do you mean by "platforms" ? ZTreeWin runs under Win95, Win98 and Win NT,
and (almost) any of the utility programs suggested for ZTree do the same, so there
should be no "platform"-problems.

You may like to have a look at the XTree Fan Page - "Auxiliary Apps" section for
a selection of most important third-party applications to be used with XTree as well
as ZTree, along with some integration tips (see link below).

Hope that helps
