    Shane,

    Have you got a working copy of wcnavi95 that will install in Win98? I
    have a lot of clients getting new computers for Christmas and I am now recommending they use DUN to connect because of problems installing
    wcNav under W98.

    tnx...kmb

    wcNav under W98.

    Have you tried the gamma installer that Shane put together and asked
    folks to test? The first version of it had some Win98-related problems,
    but it looks like they're all cleared up in the most recent version.

    Keith, please don't take this wrong, but you don't need another copy of
    wcNav to load on Win98 machines. The last one put out months ago works
    fine. Now what you do need to do is understand the Win98 setup that
    some techs do when they set up their machines. I just loaded wcNav on a
    Win98 machine today for a client.

    If you are not aware of it, you can hit "ctrl,alt,del" all at the same
    time and a Task Manager comes up. What you will find is a lot of
    programs running that interfere with many installations including
    wcNav installer. "End Task" on all of the items you see except the
    'Explorer' and the 'SysTray" item and then run the install. It should
    work fine. After the installation is done, reboot the computer and all
    the things you ended will be reloaded and all should be well.

    If this does not help, I am sorry since it works well for me when
    installing on win98 machines at a rate of about 6-8 per week.

    Rick

    Try the version in the gamma test file area (under the winserver group).
    Haven't heard any complaints with installs with this version. The
    software is the same, just a new installer.

    No I just tried the release file that's on the ftp server. As this is
    the one anyone can get access to.

    software is the same, just a new installer.

    I downloaded this file and it installed fine, (other than not using
    ../program files/wcnav as a default path ;-)

    However, I am using this on my network and I get the error "Winsock was
    not able to connect to: 209.53.217.194 because the address was not
    found" I can ping this address or telnet to it using Qmodem 95 so I know
    my tcp settings are ok. I get the same error when trying to log on to online.winserver.com btw.

    I use the telnet connection to both my server and your bbs every day???

    So if it works, distribute it to your users. That's what we're doing
    already -- how else can we test it on a variety of machines if we don't
    pass it out to our users?
