I still can't get it to work. ti always goes wrong, right as it's about to finish off. Is there a working VPC image of it anywhere, that I can download - or is there a specific procedure to follow when installing?

Thanks.

If you download my fixed version, you have to install it first, then copy all the files in the FIXES.IMA file into the Windows directory.

Does the setup break on disk 5?

It doesn't exactly brake, but the problem is that this was an incomplete build and we need the correct files for the Setup program to finish. It's not Disk 5 that's the problem, it's Disk 2 that's the problem.

So where is FIXES.IMA? The disk set I've got goes from 1-6 and has a bootdisk.

Also, when setup freezes on disk 5, should I just reboot it and apply the fixes?

I once posted my fixed version here a few months ago. It's in the Offers and Requests forum. I basically replaced all the files in Disk 2 with the ones closer to being compatible with Janus Build 34e, and I actually got it to work pretty well.

It still fails, I'm afraid. It doesn't matter. I'll give up.

That's why I included the FIXES.IMA file. You have to install it first, then when Setup stops, you have to restart your PC and then copy all the files in the FIXES.IMA file to the directory where the build is installed.

OK, it works now. I can't remember doing anything really differently, but thanks :).

EDIT: Do we know that the build tag on the final verison was?

Thanks. My version is a lot better then the so-called "Fixed" version that has been going around the Internet for years.

And in case you're intrested, the build number for the final version is 103.

Thanks, got it. It works, but it said that such-and-such a file wasn't there, so I removed the reference to it in the SYSTEM.INI file, and it works fine now.

It's not very stable at all from what I can see, but then again it is very early on in the development.

Thanks.
