Came across an issue with Client Access 7.1 today. I had installed just the
5250 portion at one of our retail stores last week. Today they needed the
Data Transfer services (and, yes, we do have a license). Oh, and the PC is
running Win7.

When I went to "Modify" the install by selecting the Data Transfer feature,
it told me (after a minute give-or-take) to insert Disk 1. It was a bloody
DVD! Selecting 'Okay' had no effect, except to redisplay the message.

So I removed Client Access and then re-installed both 5250 and Data Transfer
in a single install. Tested both functions successfully and drove back to

Just curious if anyone else has ever encountered this issue and/or any
idea/guess what I did wrong during the "Modify" phase. Come to think of it:
Probably not much of a problem since (a) everything finally got installed,
and (b) I get paid by the hour, including travel.
