Then I removed Vidalia, tor and Privoxy (using their own uninstall option from Start/Programs/app/uninstall menu) and installed the latest Vidalia package. The problem is that when I launch Vidalia now I get the following error message:

You will have to stick with Vidalia 0.0.7 until the next Vidalia release. The service support we added in Vidalia 0.0.8 broke support for Windows 95/98/ME. We'll have it fixed for the next release.

Thank you for the response. I could test the latest Vidalia on the same computer (same hadware) but under Windows XP and it works pretty fine. However, it was impossible to uninstall the lastest version and to install 0.0.7 under Windows Millenium, I keep getting the same error message (Vidalie.exe is linked (or bound) to a missing export of ADVAPI32DLL:ChangeServiceConfig2W. As I don't know what to do and which files to remove, it's rather hard to install back 0.0.7 for me, and worse, this version doesn't seem to work properly under Win Me either: the first time I installed it, my system had become sluggish and unresponsive.

Hope that later releases will fix these issues and that this information will be helpful in some way. Until then, a little warning on the website could make sense.
