Your LAN (Local Area Network) Administrator has set up the network to prevent your from installing software directly to the system. Nsetup is a function of LAN Manager 2.xx. Speak with your LAN Administrator ans explain what your are attempting to do and request the necessary permissions to complete the install.

If you need more, let me know!

Best regards,
Dennis

Wini: It can be done, but with the grade of "D" that you gave me, I really don't think it's worth the effort.

This presumes that you can access the hard drive on your workstation and that workstation has not been prevented from creating icons by the LAN administrator:

1. Use Windows Explorer in your start, programs directory and determine the drive letter for the hard drive on your workstation and write it down.

2. Use the add/remove programs in control panel and load the program you want to use. Make sure that when the program asks you on which drive that you want to install it on that you specifiy the hard drive on the workstation that you identified from above. Write down the directory where this program has installed itself and where the "exe" file to execute the program is located.

3. Given that I do not know whether the program you have is able to create it's own icon, but is windows 95 compatible, the following assumes that it HAS loaded but HAS NOT created an icon.

a. Right click on the start button, then left click "open".

b. While the icon box is open, left click on file in the upper left hand corner, scroll down to "New" and then click shortcut.

c. You will be asked to insert a command line to execute the program you have installed. Use the browse button and scroll to the directory where the program and it's "exe" file is located and highlight it.

d. Give the program a name you recognize and the save and close the boxes. Then test the install.
