I think you should consider yourself fortunate that you have it working at all.
You are not going to find support for W98, or the graphics you want.
You will likely have far more success trying to run W98 in a VM, I have VMs for W3.1, WXP, and DOS. They all work great on W7 as a virtual machine. I even did W98 for a test, and then discarded it. And, I only did these VMs for entertainment.
Regarding your app, if it has not been updated in 18 years, it is time to get rid of it. Or, get the sources and recompile it.

Bear in mind that your operating system is out of support, from our end it's difficult to troubleshoot a product out of support. So, my recommendation is to post in places like Windows 95/98/ME Forum - BleepingComputer.com and Windows 95/98/ME Forum. You might be able to get more feedback from peers experiencing similar issues.
Thanks for both responding.
I shortly realized after that, yeah, I'm running *Windows 98*. Not a widely used OS and out of support for many products across many companies.
Because of the specified program a team and I are using, there is no way to upgrade the OS without administration(which hasn't been in perfect contact since the early 2000s), but the program gets updates through our network for specific Additions.
I did find a solution, but it would have me go into the registry and edit hex values and stuff I'm not really good at, so I (surprisingly quickly) found a compatible graphics card for 1440x900 with a Windows ME/98 patch.
If there is a way to mark this thread resolved, I'd like to know how or have a moderator mark it.
