DivX (Win98/ME) v5.2.1

Unfortunately file DivX521ME98.exe is NOT version 5.2.1 BUT is really version 6.2.2 so is NOT compatible with Win98 or ME !!! <br/>If you want DivX for Win98 this is not the one to download. <br/>If AfterDawn could find the correct version that would be great!

DivX (Win98/ME) v5.2.1

In Win98 SP2 this does not work.
It unpacks then just says DivX cannot be used in Win98.
