This morning you replied to my post about a CD ROM I am trying to install. The book publisher sent me instructions on how to install it on a XP system. A screenshot of it is here:

Is there anything there that suggests to you that it may be possible to install on my Win ME system?

Thanks

That link didn't work, try this:

Those instructions are on how to associate a file type with the program so that it will open correctly. From what I have read of your previous post, you cannot even install it at this stage, let only try to open it - is this still correct?

Yes, Jen C, are are right, I can't install it. But it appears to be old software from Win 3.11 days and it really isn't important if I can't get it to work. I just wondered if the experts here might have some easy way to make it work. But thanks, anyway.

If you can navigate to the actual installer file (setup.exe or install.exe??) then RIGHT click on it and select Compatability Mode

Try selecting Windows 95 mode.

It might more accurately emulate the environment for an install.
