Second Workstation Setup Does Not Update All WIN.INI Entries PSS ID Number: Q102491 Article last modified on 11-30-1993

2.00 2.00a 2.00a-CD 2.00b 2.00c

WINDOWS

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c - Microsoft Windows operating system versions 3.0 and 3.1

SYMPTOMS

If you use the Word for Windows Setup program to perform a second (or subsequent) Workstation Installation and if the server location of Word is a different logical drive, none of the import filters, export filters, or OLE server applications runs correctly.

CAUSE

Setup does not update the WIN.INI entries with the new network drive.

Exception: Setup correctly modifies the WordDocument setting in the Embedding section of WIN.INI.

STATUS

We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

MORE INFORMATION

For example, if you originally installed Word on your workstation from drive E: and you later reinstalled Word from drive F:, Setup does not change the WIN.INI entries in the following sections from E: to F:

  • the Drawing, MSGraph, Equation, and WordArt entries.
  • [MS Graphic Export Filters]
  • [MS Graphic Import Filters]

If Word cannot find the filter or server application in the old location, an error occurs.
