I just had my computer upgraded with an extra hard drive.  Now instead of being the d drive, my CD-ROM drive is G.  I just noticed when I put my bookshelf CD in, the CD-ROM drive gives me messages like device not working properly, or it prompts me to put the bookshelf CD in drive G even though it is in and when I click okay it refuses to recognize it.  Also it has replied with an error message " msr.dll not something blah blah blah.  Any idea what's going on here?  I won't be able to get the tech for several days.
Thanks,
Daniel

mcbroom...

The reason behind the error is when you installed Bookshelf, it was installed from the D drive letter which was your CD-ROM at that time.  Now you have added more drive letters by installing a new Hard drive. And Bookshelf need to know that.

You would have to do the following:
1) Start > Find > bookshelf.ini
2) Locate that file and open it with Notepad for edit.
3) You would find in that file that the PATH is going to the drive D, you would have to change it to G in order to reflect the proper drive to look for.
4) Save the file

Try it and let me know if you still experience the same error.
Hope it helped
Regards

I found bshelf95.ini in my Windows directory, but here is all that it says: Microsoft Bookshelf 95

When I try to launch bookshelf, I get a box that says there is no program in drive G.  The CD-ROM is functioning though, because I can play audio CDs in it.  Can you tell me how to edit the ini file or what else I should try?
Thanks,
Daniel
