    Default Encyclopaedia Brittanica CD 1999 Standard Version

    I bought this CD early last year and have this problem getting it to run.

    When I click on the icon to run it I get this error message
    'An error prevented execution of bcd.exe'
    this message appears in the Netscape screen.

    Nothing runs frm that point on.

    I tried e-mailing all sorts of Brittanica service sites for months and never once got a reply.
    I have uninstalled and reinstalled from the CD but always to no avail.
    There does not appear to be a progran bcd.exe on either the installation disk or the program disc.

    Can anyone help.
    I am running Netscape 4.77, P3 computer with 128meg ram, using Win 98 SE.

    Hello Peter

    The Warehouse had a bad batch of these Cd's last year,apparently a few critical files were left off of the Cd, allowing only about 90% of installation to complete then setup would just stall and do nothing.
    I don't know if you sourced yours from there or not, but regardless your Cd seems to have the same problem.
