New Deal 3.0 under XP?

Post by mrjefferso » Wed, 17 Nov 2004 22:21:22


Can someone guide me through the settings needed to run ND3.0 under a PC
running XP Pro? I had it running fine on W98SE and would hate to lose it.

Hi,




There are some instructions at Breadbox
( http://www.yqcomputer.com/ )

However, I am still personally unable to run NDO on the closest XP
machine (Omnibook 6000).


To lose what? XP? ;-)

Philippe.

Hi!


I did encounter some problems (=crashes with some KR-messages while
starting Geos) due to the WinXP-drivers for my parallel-port
Zip-Drive: I fixed it by removing all printer-driver-entries from my
geos.ini (don't forget to make a back-up before you do this ;-)
BTW: The XP-driver is the same as for other IOMEGA-drives (Jazz,
Click, ...), but I guess that this problem could occur any other
non-IOMEGA non-printer (scanners, C=1541-floppy-adapters, ...)
attached to your parallel-port, too. (Maybe this problem even occurs
under other windows-versions, too?!)

I fixed another problem (=crashes with some KR-messages while starting
Geos) by removing all files from privdata\state. (Cleaning
privdata\spool and deleting privdata\clipboar.000 wouldn't do any
harm, too, other than removing the contents of your clipboard and
removing all unfinished printing-/faxing-tasks.)

Hi!

BTW: Last Saturday we managed to get the "Soundblaster 1.5"-driver (in
BBE 4.0) running under WinXP after we've installed VDMSound:
