Eraser will not run in old computer

Dear Sir/Madam,

I downloaded Eraser for 32 bit Windows 98. I put it on a disk to install it on an old computer that is not connected to the internet (online) - it is used only for word processing.

It seemed to install okay except I was not able to run it because the following error statement came up on three tries and I don't know what it means nor how to deal with it: "The Procedure SHGetFolderPathA could not be located in the DLLShell32dll."

Is there any way I can get it to work or is it a hopeless case?

I want to clean the hard drive so that I can give this computer away as a useful device although old. I've got some new equipment now. I understand that if I can't clear the hard drive, the only other choice is to destroy it.

Appreciate any advice in this matter.

Where did you download Eraser from? What version does the setup link read? When did you download it? I thought I fixed this a while back.
