We have it running on 2K but can't get it to install on XP. Has anyone gotten the new (from developer tools) ones to work with XP. It give a bogus signon as administrator message (when we are) and will not continue.

Has anyone gotten this to install on W2K? Yes, I use it on a W2K Pro machine every day. Can't say its flawless, but then again it wasn't 100% stable on the old win98 machine I used to use either. (Still prefer it to SEU though) It didn't install cleanly when I tried to load it, I had to go through each disk and re-run the Windows installer scripts to get it to load up. Then I had to configure the help system manually. In case you are still curious, each disk has a *.msi file in its root directory, right click it and select 'Repair' and it should do its thing. You'll need to do this for every disk. I'd wager the online help won't work either, but there are docs on the disks to show you how to fix it. (you'll have to use the varcfg utility) Like I said at the top of this post, I use CODE/400 every day on a Win2K Pro machine, and prefer it greatly to SEU/RDU, etc. However, the installer is badly broken under w2k, (and won't re-install under win98 correctly) and it is a pain in the a** to setup. P.S. Simply running the uninstall option from 'Add/Remove Programs' does *NOT* completely uninstall the product, you have to get a utility off of the websphere studio site at IBM to clean it up properly. (Didn't work for me BTW, but your mileage may vary.) P.S.S. The developers of websphere studio are readily available through the newsgroups on IBMs servers, links are at the support site. They have been helpful to me in working around the problems I've run into so far. _______________________________________________ This is the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion (MIDRANGE-L) mailing list To post a message email: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/cgi-bin/listinfo/midrange-l or email: MIDRANGE-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l.
