hDC Power Launcher Does Not Install Icons with Windows NT

With Windows NT, hDC Power Launcher version 1.0 does not install the correct icons and associations are not defined.

NOTE: If you upgrade to Windows NT from Windows 3.1 and you have a directory called "WINDOWS," this problem does not occur.


This problem occurs because hDC Power Launcher 1.0 tries to copy MICROMAN.EXE to the WINDOWS directory. (It does not call GetWindowDirectory to determine the correct directory name.) If the setup program does not find the WINDOWS directory, MICROMAN.EXE is copied to the application's installation directory. Since this directory is not in your path yet, MICROMAN.EXE is not found and incorrect icons are installed.


To work around this problem, upgrade to a later version of hDC Power Launcher.
