This release has been tested on Windows 2000 SP2 and NT4 with SP6a, 4S4C has not been tested and will not work on Windows 9x (95, 98, 98SE, ME). There are no current plans to support Windows 9x, however if enough people ask for it, then I'll look into it (although why anyone would want to deploy server applications on Windows 9x is beyond me). The HTTP listener requires IIS (4.0 or 5.0) to be installed and working. The SMTP Listener only works on Windows 2000, and requires that the SMTP Service be installed and working.
The 4S4C installer uses Microsoft's Windows Installer v1.1. If you are running Windows 2000, then this is already installed. If you are running NT4, then you might already have Windows Installer installed (Office 2000 & the Platform SDK both use it). If you don't have Windows Installer, you will need to install this first, grab a copy from here (1,465Kb).
If you have 4s4c 1.1 or 4s4c 1.0, you must manually uninstall and remove the ssss4c virtual directory from IIS before starting the install
If you already have 4s4c 1.2 or later installed, then you can simiply run the install and it will upgrade it to v1.3.8
To install 4S4C, double click the downloaded 4s4c_1.3.8.msi file, and follow the instructions, assuming a default install, it will of installed the following directory tree (In <ProgramFiles>\SimonFell)
