CA Presents Shopper Installation Is Garbled Under Windows NT

CA Presents Shopper version 1.4 has a Clip Art Shopper Windows-based program that has an MS-DOS-based installation program. When you run this installation program, you get garbled or corrupted messages.


This problem occurs because the CA Presents Shopper 1.4 installation program calls XCOPY to install files. Since Windows NT XCOPY is not an MS-DOS-based application, it doesn't interact with the installation program the same way the MS-DOS-based version does. As a result, the display looks garbled (however, the installation proceeds normally).


To work around this problem, either ignore the garbled screen display or upgrade to Presents version 1.5 or later.
