Symptoms

Installing the WorkgroupShare client on a Windows 98 SE computer can sometimes lead to errors relating to the files WSOLAddin.dll and Redemption.dll

Resolution

From the Windows 98 client computer, browse to the WorkgroupShare server and locate the following files in the WorkgroupShareClientSetup folder

Redemption.dl_
WSOLAddin.dl_

Copy these files to the ‘WorkgroupShare Client’ folder on the client computer and rename them to

Redemption.dll
WSOLAddin.dll

Then, re-run the client setup program and ignore the error suggesting that the files could not be found/copied.

More Info
