Hi Alvin,

Unfortunately ImagePlug does not work on Windows 95/98. This is because
ImageMagick (which ImagePlug uses to process the images) writes its
output to STDERR, and this cannot be redirected on these operating systems.

It may be possible to work around this somehow, or newer versions of
ImageMagick may work differently, but we don't have time to look at this
right now, and I'm afraid this job is getting less and less important as
fewer people use these OSs. It is on our "to do" list however, and
hopefully we will get to it soon.

Sorry I couldn't be any help,

Michael
