I am trying to install on a Windows ME machine;
About at the last minute of the install, I get an error
message about not being able to write a line to the
registry; an Unknown? key? However, the install program
allows me to ignore it.
After that, attempts to launch the program fail
because, it appears, the system does not know what to
do with the cmd files.
There may be a pathing problem: due to space
limitations, I install onto D:\programs\Evolution.
I have read elsewhere that some of the scripts are
hard-wired to C:, so I tried specifying paths in the
cmd files where it looked like it would help, but it
didn't.
Has anyone got this to work on a Windows ME platform?
