I purchased a encyklopedia to run on a NW 4.11 network on a Discport Plus with Discview 5.30.
I want to run it in a shared Windows (Wfw 3.11).

I run the setup and everythings OK on a Olivetti DX2 66.

Then i run the setup on a noname P75. The encyklopedia installs OK. Video for Windows installs OK but when Quicktime 2.11 is about to install i get the message:
"An operation could not be performed because a file handle could not be opened. Try closing existing ... increase files..." This occurs when a file called QTOLD.QTC is about to be copied.

When i try to install it in a local Windows everythig works OK but not in a shared Windows.

On the Olivetti box it works OK in both shared and local Windows.

I increased the files in config.sys to 200 but it didn´t matter. I don´t think that´s the problem.

I tried other video drivers but no luck. The video adapter is a S3 64+

I´ve got a 20-user license for the encyklopedia.

First, just try rebooting the machine your having problems with and try to install right after it finishes rebooting. If that doesn't work, then you will have to disable the network drivers in windows.. The easiest way to do that is with the /n switch on the windows command line.. Ex. Win /n

Once it's done installing, you can then reboot the machine.. Quicktime for windows is really picky about whats loaded and resident when it gets installed.

Well a nice try but it didn´t work. The same result.
I think I´ll give up on this one.
