PRB: Companion Disk Install Runs Out of Space & Requests Disk

Article ID: Q100162
Creation Date: 16-JUN-1993
Revision Date: 19-SEP-1996 The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Access versions 1.0 and 1.1

SYMPTOMS


If you run out of hard disk space during the installation of the Microsoft Access Companion Disk files, you receive the following error message:

   Out of space. Insert new disk and press RETURN:

Of course you cannot insert a new hard disk. And, even if you are installing under Windows and you back up or delete some files to make additional disk space available, the error message continues; the installation procedure does not recheck available space on the hard disk. CAUSE


This error is caused by a limitation in the installation process (COMPRESS.EXE) provided with the Companion Disk.

RESOLUTION


  1. Press CTRL+C to quit the batch job.
  2. Delete any files that may have already been copied to your hard disk (MSCMS.MDB, MSDIRECT.MDB, MSFORMS.MDB, and MSSWEETS.MDB).
  3. Make sure that more than 3.8 megabytes (MB) of disk space is available.
  4. Run the installation again.
