Hi,

this message is a copy from a letter a sent twice to Novalogic but on which i've had no reply.


I recently purchased a copy of Comanche 3. The problem is, I cant install it properly.

When asked to type a location for the program to install its files, i have to change drive since my drive C is just a boot drive and is no larger than 10 MB so I have to install on D.

The problem lies in the fact that the keyboard settings are incorrect in the install program. I cant type a backslash. When pressing the \-key it gives a # and when pressing # it give a pound sign. I tried all other keys and key-combinations, so there is no way for me to install the game.

My keyboard settings work fine in Windows 95 and in Dos, but are different in the install program. How do I correct this problem?

Thanks in advance,

Michiel Koorn

You could try to use the combination of holding down the <ALT> key and typing the ASCII-code of \ (92) on the numerical keypad.

Another rather unusual way would be to rename the drives (should be possible by using 'subst' or 'assign' (assign is an old dos- command included in Caldera-OpenDos (www.caldera.com)).
 
I hope this can be of assistence.
